Here… smile at something

I’m tired from all the pain and negativity going around.

Facebook, Twitter, whatever — people are focusing on so much negative, anger, “you’re wrong”, “fuck you”, “this President’s an asshole”, “no YOU’RE an asshole!” and yes even snark is negative at its root. It’s sad to say this is how it is these days, but right now it’s far worse than usual.

So let’s try to lighten the mood and smile a bit.

Here’s an episode of “Saved By The Bell”, where Kelly gets a zit, and Zack both screws up yet saves the day and teaches us something more important about life and ourselves.

Hey, if I made you smile (even if you were groaning at me), then I did my job. :-)

BTW, I think the video poster intentionally down-tuned the audio to avoid auto-detection mechanisms. Frankly, it makes the whole thing a bit funnier.

New home defense tactic

A burglar in Georgetown ran away with empty hands and an eyeful Wednesday night when he was confronted by a nude, pistol-packing homeowner.

[...]

“I have a tattoo of the grim reaper, my hair is sticking up all crazy and I’m naked,” said the homeowner, who asked that his name be withheld for safety reasons. “I’m not sure if (the burglar) was more afraid of me or the gun.”

Full story here.

So there you go. New home defense tactic. ;-)

 

Country music vs. Heavy metal

The other day I was showing Oldest this video about “why country music was awful in 2013″

Watching this again, I realized there’s a key difference between country music and heavy metal.

With country music, it’s agrarian. Time is relative to when the moon comes up and the sun goes down.

With heavy metal, it’s technical and precise.

2 Minutes To Midnight

with “10 Seconds to Love” (NSFW)

Although sometimes it might be a little more vague, because we’re “Livin’ After Midnight”

or just waiting for the “Witching Hour”

Then there’s rap music.
