one of my favorite songs-ever-by one of my favorite female vocalists who exhibits one of the most unique senses of timing of any singer. amazing power, control and restraint. dionne warwick 'eastwooding' a whole bunch of empty chairs- this clip now enters my pantheon of drag numbers that have to be performed and preserved for later generations. what's even more supreme and beyond being one of the Legendary Children? i don't know, but dionne warwick is she:

and one truly terrible, sexist set of hal david lyrics-subverted into scathing performance art by kd lang. i never liked kd lang much but this is genius:

don't be a douche, win a prize

"It seemed I couldn’t get press on my album unless I was willing to play into the role that the mainstream press has assigned to gay people, which is as servants of straight ideals." - ruPaul

ok it might not work but why not-in my birthday tradition of giving a gift to someone else- get some free music? all you have to do is not be a douche bag and say you'd like this set of music. steve jobs' cultette fanboys say the itunes code is still good -it might not be or some of the songs might not be- but what the fuck!-it's free and all you have to be is not a douche.

that's it- all you have to be is not a douche bag, specifically not a gay conservative one who runs other gheys off their site because, well, i don't know why really. because they were listening to lying christian right wing straight biddies with nothing better to do than demonize and hunt the gheys and witches or something? i couldn't say, i wouldn't know.

at the bottom of this post will be a list of songs- if you'd like this set- just say so and i'll send you via email the redemption code. (no promises- it may not work. apple claims it will...)

maybe i am being harsh but it's a reflection of how i was treated. maybe it's just intermittent douche baggery caused by heavens knows of someone who really isn't a douche but impaired or misinformed or having a bad day. everyone has the right to put whatever-or remove whatever- they want on their blog. about that i have no disagreement. however, i was paying a premium to use this site, did not behave in a rude or abusive manner to anyone, and was ruthlessly censored while those who had lied about me were given free reign. i was not the only paying customer this happened to. of course, i cancelled my membership and moved on to a site run by straight christians who have never once blocked or censored anything i have submitted. imagine-gay pagan run off itsy bitsy gay conservative plantation (population: perhaps 10)while being allowed to stay with no restrictions on conservative primarily christian blog.

that's a special kind of what the fuck. gay people cannibalizing gay people at the behest of heterosexuals is so, like, auntie bruce ( the gay version of to uncle tom? i don't know- what is the catch-all gay/queer name of today? they all seem to name their gaybies and dogs 'dylan' is all i can make out).

maybe it's not a queer on queer thing after all. maybe it's gender specific a la old skool the mens hate or are indifferent toward the wimmins and the wimmins hate or are indifferent to the mens. and both sides find gender ambiguity and trans people threatening.possibility. however, since my demonization was started by self professed religious people claiming i was acting out sexually (anyone who knows me knows this is patently absurd. i generally find no one sexually appealing.), i'd say at first it was gender specific focused on stereotypes about gay males.

or maybe it's just that i am a real feminist and i shouldn't be one. and while i do not attack specific individuals about their religious views in general and certainly not on other people's websites, i refuse to suppress my opinion (when it is asked or in the proper context) that i think the oppression of women and by proxy queer people descends from patriarchal religions. i refuse to suppress my religious beliefs- being a goddess worshipping pagan- while other are free to opine endlessly about their own beliefs. i don't troll for sex on political or social websites nor will i remain silent while others say the most vicious and disgustingly prejudiced things about other humans thinking they can and should get away with being so uncivil merely because they profess to be christian- so all their sometimes hateful opinions and abusive behaviors( not to mention their rather revealing and disturbing obsession with the mechanics of gay sex) are Truth from god no one dare comment upon.

personally, i learned all about feminism and patriarchy from my uncle. i am a feminist because of my fabulous drag queen auntie - the "real" women i grew up with might as well have been stepford wives. i was pretty much raised by someone very much like rupaul, a queer uncle who taught me to revere the feminine:

" I think they are redefining what femininity is, but I still think there is a lot of negativity associated with true femininity. Do boys wear eyeliner and dress in skinny jeans now? Yes, they do. But it’s still a heavily patriarchal culture and you never see two men in Star magazine, or the Queer Eye guys at a premiere, the way you see Ellen and her girlfriend—where they are all, ‘Oh, look how cute’—without a negative connotation to it. There is a definite prejudice towards men who use femininity as part of their palate; their emotional palate, their physical palate. Is that changing? It’s changing in ways that don’t advance the cause of femininity. I’m not talking frilly-laced pink things or Hello Kitty stuff. I’m talking about goddess energy, intuition and feelings. That is still under attack, and it has gotten worse. That’s why you wouldn’t get someone covering the RuPaul album, or why they say people aren’t tuning into the Katie Couric show. Sure, they can say ‘Oh, RuPaul’s album sucks’ and ‘Katie Couric is awful’; but that’s not really true. It’s about what our culture finds important, and what’s important are things that support patriarchal power. The only feminine thing supported in this struggle is Pamela Anderson and Jessica Simpson, things that support our patriarchal culture."-ruPaul

but this all speculation about something that happened some time ago- hence the orphaned itunes music mix with no where to call home.

want it? just ask. but most importantly listen. without prejudice.

- How the Beatles Rocked the Kremlin
http://www.thirteen.org/beatles/video/video-watch-how-the-beatles-rocked-the-kremlin/36/

russian all female punk band sentenced to 2 years in prison for "hooliganism". russian orthodox church seems to indicate their crime was 'blasphemy' but their 40 second protest was against putin and the church's official support of a tyrant not the church per se or 'god'. coupled with this outrage is putin's continuing war on gays and lesbians.

"The three women were arrested in March after performing an anti-Putin "punk prayer" inside Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. The case against them is seen as serving two functions: a warning to other dissidents, and an appeal to Putin's conservative base. Russia's growing campaign against gay rights is seen as a part of that effort, and on Friday Moscow's main court upheld a 100-year ban on gay pride rallies."

murderous communist dictator lover tom morello only finds time to rage whine like a big pussy against american citizen paul ryan while real punks , real prisoners of conscious get sent to jail for protesting against ex-commie/ new tsar puta putin. pussy riot are political prisoners not rich american communists pretending to be all oppressed as a PR ploy.

bitch. never trust any scum bag who gleefully, willingly goes to cuba to play music for castro's captives.it's the moral equivalent of playing your numetal rap minstrel show in apartheid south africa or for fucking hitler himself. hitler, stalin, castro- they all killed in the name of socialism/communism. you're a moron and part of the problem for not getting that very salient fact straight. of all the politically motivated bands on earth at this moment, pussy riot is the very one which could clue you in, precious, about what life under a communist dictator is like. putin is turning a supposed democracy with a constitution back into a soviet style dictatorship-without the quasi-redistributed wealth. but you dig that shit, don't you? like you love you some castro. fascist celebtard.

oh and while i'm at it che guevara was a racist piece of crap, a homophobe and a bloodthirsty killer. so all black folks, gheys, and emos running around with those t-shirts on or artfully posing themselves à la shepard fairey dressed as guerilla cum maoist revolutionaries- che would be the first one to call you a shiftless ,ignorant useless n-word or if you're mexican he thought you were a dumb indian. wake the fuck up. too busy calling everyone who doesn't agree with you a racist while ignoring the real hateful racists in your own midst, amid your own pantheon of bankrupt tyrannical political mass murderers.

even madonna took the time to lend support to pussy riot( and we know how i feel about ms. skeletor). fuck, even sir paul mccartney isn't a self absorbed poseur douche bag and he's a fucking knight of the realm. even sir paul supports pussy riot.

sir paul fucking mccartney and the beatles are more important musically and politically than raging supposedly communist/socialist/anarchist blowhards making scads of dosh off the machine. the influence of the beatles on the people of the soviet union under a communist tyranny- it was the clarion call of freedom for actual oppressed slaves of the state. and RATM hung out with big messy narcissist liar michael moore while gobbling up scads of cash from feckless capitalist youth, the clarion call for the free to willingly become slaves of the state- but before you become a serf buy lots of merchandize. how very. you're not a rebel. you are a bitch.

pussy riot is paying the price for rocking the kremlin. free pussy riot.



"Wynton Marsalis and his Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (who in 2004 held a concert titled “Celebration of Human Rights and Social Justice”) spent all last week as grateful guests of a Stalinist/Apartheid regime that murdered more political prisoners in its first three years in power than Hitler’s murdered in its first six, that jailed political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s...
Many Cuban blacks suffered longer incarceration in Castro’s dungeons and torture chambers than Nelson Mandela suffered in South Africa’s. In fact, they qualify as the longest-suffering political prisoners in modern history. Eusebio Penalver, Ignacio Cuesta Valle, Antonio Lopez Munoz, Ricardo Valdes Cancio and many other Cuban blacks suffered almost 30 years in Castro’s prisons.
Sr. Penalver served several months of this 30 year sentence naked in a "punishment cell" barely big enough to stand in, where he languished naked and in complete darkness.

“Ni**er!” taunted his jailers between tortures. “We pulled you down from the trees and cut off your tail!” "Castro's apologists, those who excuse or downplay his crimes,” said Mr. Penalver, “These people be they ignorant, stupid, mendacious whatever--they are accomplices in the bloody tyrant's crimes, accomplices in the most brutal and murderous regime in the hemisphere."

Update: Judith Ann Chartier. and again***update***

tomorrow is Judith Ann Chartier's birthday. she has been missing since 1982. bones have just been found near her former family residence. they have been sent for forensic testing.

http://www.myfoxboston.com/story/19250388/2012/08/10/renewed-interest-in-a-30-year-old-cold-case-in-chelmsford?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=7601474

"CHELMSFORD -
Investigators are searching the area behind a home on Gorham Street in Chelmsford following a discovery that could lead to a break in a 30-year-old cold case.

The home once belonged to the family of Judith Ann Chartier, a 17-year-old that went missing in 1982."

here is my post concerning Judy from this past july:

http://akmed.livejournal.com/246236.html

if these bones are Judy's that they were found so close to her home would indicate that she was most likely to have been killed by someone she knew or, even more disturbingly, by a family member. this is not unusual- it is the norm. most victims of homicide are murdered by someone they know.

or a complete fucking sadist purposely placed the remains at this location to torture and taunt her family and mislead the police.

with adult and teenage females, the most likely suspect in any unexplained disappearance and/or murder is the boyfriend , husband, or former intimate relation.

the news article above mentions a brother who "died unexpectedly"- which can be taken as a hint or not. the last person to see Judy alive, her fiance at the time, was questioned not only concerning his relationship to Judy but also about the relationship dynamics between her 5 brothers. she was her parent's only daughter. it is all too soon to tell- it would appear that the police were, however, offered a tip that led them to go looking in this specific location near her home.

someone has, perhaps, after 30 years come clean or coughed up the dirty on whomever they were protecting or scared of informing on.

fortunately, Judy's dental charts are available and her family DNA sample is in CODIS which should facilitate identification. if you know of someone who is long term missing under suspicious circumstances it is vitally important that their closest family members- their biological mother and father if possible- submit DNA samples if a sample directly from the missing person is not a possibility. these are the guidelines for submission:

kits for DNA collection are available through The University of North Texas Health Science Center , funded by the National Institute of Justice.

Judy deserves justice. Judy deserves to be found.

CHELMSFORD -- Bones found at the home that once belonged to the family of Judith Ann Chartier do not belong to a human, a source confirmed.

runaway slaves

http://www.runawayslavemovie.com/





the first blacks in congress were all republicans. the democrat party was historically ALWAYS the party of slavery and racism. abraham lincoln and martin luther king jr. were both republicans. it was the democrat majority south that ceded from the Union to save slavery.

all the black codes and jim crow laws were instituted, written into law by democrats. the ku klux klan was started by democrats- the kkk was a democrat vigilante group targeting blacks and white republicans. democrats are the party of lynching.

democrats fought successfully against any and all civil rights and voting laws until the 1950s when a republican president, dwight d. eisenhower under the guiding light of republican senator everett dirksen(who was behind ALL the major civil rights legislation of the 50s and 60s including the civil rights act of 1964), advocated for and signed into law the first 20th century civil rights acts. eisenhower also advocated for passage of the Equal Rights Amendment for women- long on the republican platform and NOT at the time on the democrat party platform.

it is republican ronald reagan who signed into MLK Jr day into law. republican george w. bush who appointed more african americans to high levels of leadership in his administration than any other president in american history.

democrats are the oldest political party in the united states but they did not put a black man in the US senate until 2005 (obama)( first african american democrat female-1993). by that point the republicans, starting in 1870, had placed through election not appointment 3.

here, take a test:

http://www.nbra.info/DYK-HistoryTest

women and gays would do well to ask what exactly have democrats done for them lately- besides pander to them for votes while delivering zilch in terms of real laws protecting their civil rights, their rights to live the lives they choose, and enhancing not closing down their real educational and economic opportunities. that women are not even considered under democrat penned hate crimes legislation should indicate exactly what democrats really think of women. women blacks and gays are the slaves that refuse to runaway from their real oppressors- the party that is using them. that does not mean running to the republicans necessarily. why not become self aware and empowered enough to stop being hoodwinked by politicians who have done absolutely nothing to advance your constitutionally guaranteed freedoms and rights to be protected equally under the law.

you are being lied to to force your submission. put down the candy colored clown sugar water, it's time to flee jonestown while you still have the chance. the democrat plantation is still the fucking plantation. in case you haven't noticed, you are not the one living in the big house carrying the whip.

runaway, slaves. the truth really does set you free whereas your chains were forged with lies.

"look like a person but is a witch"

it is a scientific fact that reading leads to witchcraft and lesbianism. fact.

and since we all, therefore, for our own safety and purity, need to be able to identify witches(now that they've moved beyond appearing like withered old crones with frightening medieval skin diseases and are all smooth of skin and sexy), i was more than morally and chastely titillated to find this amid the tattered and scattered bits post-trash day:

witchre_edited-2


i'm just happy to see that the schools are still teaching something useful to children rather than post renaissance, post-printing press brainwashing like learning the rudiments of using the english language or learning how to count. believing that women evolved from the rib of a man and learning how to avoid witches are the building blocks of any well rounded education.

at any age it is still a treat to learn something new each day-like the fact that one can tell a witch because, instead of an ugly, loud beach hat, she'll be wearing a tasteful yet unostentatious string of pearls.
