Planting Peace Fundraiser: Transgender House

I’m sorry but… how is this only 16% funded?

Where is everybody?

Why hasn’t this already screamed past its initial goal?

We need to fix this, readers.

Here’s the link to the donation page. Here’s Upworthy’s article on it. If you can’t donate, then please share with your friends. Get it funded.

Please. This would be amazing. And Avery Jackson deserves it.

————————————————————————————

ETA: They did still buy and paint the house, so it now exists. Which is awesome. But I still see no reason that campaign shouldn’t finish getting the funding. I think that treat would be wonderful.

Great Guitar Solos – Nirvana Plays Aero Zeppelin

Oh! Hello! How is everyone? Are y’all all right?

I’m better. Still angry, still fighting, but… better.

Decided that it was time to clear out the cobwebs and start this one up again.

This time around it’s… yes… Nirvana. Nirvana holds a rather special place in my heart. Before Nirvana, I pretty much listened to children’s music, boy bands, and mainstream pop crap. Then a friend introduced me to Nirvana, and that changed literally everything for me in terms of how I listened to music. Sure, Led Zeppelin’s my all-time favorite band, but they wouldn’t be if not for Nirvana.

We’re starting back up with the solo from their song Aero Zeppelin. It starts at 3:14 and ends at 3:44.

Enjoy!

Trumpgrets Are Infuriating

First off, thanks to Caine for linking to this Tumblr. It’s called Trumpgrets. I went through it the first time just laughing, enjoying the schadenfreude I felt at all this. I even said the following on Facebook:

Trump Voters: “We need an outsider who tells it like it is! He’ll break up the establishment and Make America Great Again!”

Trump: *fills his administration with Washington and Wall Street insiders and members of the establishment, plus a few actual White Supremacists*

Trump Voters: *fill with regret* https://trumpgrets.tumblr.com/

Me: “Fuck all of you.”

But now, I’m going back through it, and I’m genuinely pissed off. What were these assholes watching? How could they have been so damned confused about which candidate Trump was and which candidate Clinton was? It seems to me like, somehow, they completely flipped them! Did they think Trump was running as the Democrat and Clinton was running as the Republican, or something?

I mean… what the hell?

Below the fold are a few choice examples that really angered me…

From En Tequila Es Verdad: Ban Bannon – Call Your Reps

I’m going to quote most of it here, but make no mistake… you WILL click on this link. This is one of MANY calls to action.

I’m going to say it outright:

WE ARE AT WAR

 

Trump is not welcome as my president, and, if you are a decent person, he should not be welcome as yours. And this, my friends, is your first battle:

Ban Stephen Bannon. Do not allow him to be elected by Donald Trump. He is the very definition of a White Supremacist. The KKK, Neo-Nazis, and many others fucking love him. He cannot be allowed to be Trump’s Joseph Goebbels. He must be stopped.

[Read more…]

No

It’s not okay. It’s not right, it’s not cool… it’s NOT FUCKING OKAY!

Listen up, white people…

We did this. We fucked up.

Listen up every liberal (myself included) who didn’t take Trump seriously…

We did this. We fucked up.

Maybe you want to know why I include myself, when I voted for Clinton? Because I’m still complicit in the Patriarchal White Supremacy that let this happen. As are you.

We should all be ashamed of ourselves.

——————————————————–

And to women, people of color, the LGBTQ community, everyone who’s not Christian, everyone who’s not able-bodied…

I’m sorry. I’m so fucking sorry.

 

?!?

Are we about to elect Donald Trump as our next president?

No. This… this cannot be happening.

Why is this happening? How can this be happening?

Why are we letting it happen?

I don’t want this. Why does this have to happen?

Please please please let it just be a scare. I can’t do this. And I’m fucking white. I’m a fucking white man. But my friends?

People I love?

For them.

This can’t happen. It has to be stopped.

Great Guitar Solos – Stevie Wonder and Jeff Beck Play Superstition

Ah, Jeff Beck. One of the all-time greats. His playing is phenomenal and amazing.

Superstition has an interesting history, in that Stevie Wonder kinda sorta wrote it for Jeff Beck, who released it. Then almost immediately after, Stevie Wonder released it. So, of course, it makes a lot of sense for Jeff Beck to join Stevie Wonder for this amazing song (one of my all-time favorite songs, in fact), and Jeff’s soloing on guitar (and Stevie’s on piano) is incredible.

The guitar solo starts at 1:27 and ends at 2:22. And yes, there’s video to watch, here…

Enjoy!
