Frenetic Friday


You’re running the ground falls away from you’ve left mundane behind and are now flying into Frenetic Friday.

Do you remember Charlotte Church? The Welsh born singer recently wrote an article for Digital Music News entitled “I’m Charlotte Church. And this is how women are routinely demoralized by the music industry..

“Thank you for coming to my lecture this evening.

I’d like you to imagine a world in which male musicians are routinely expected to act as submissive sex objects.  Picture Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z stripped down to a T-back bikini thong, sex kittin’ his way through a boulevard of suited-and-booted women for their pleasure.  Or Britney Spears’ ex, Justin Timberlake, in buttocks-clenching hot pants writhing on top of a pink Chevy, explaining to an audience how he’d like to be their ‘Teenage Dream’.

Before we all get a little too hot beneath the gusset, of course these scenarios are not likely to become reality, unless for comedy’s sake.  The reason for this is that these are roles the music industry has carved out specifically for womenRead more here

This is an interesting article from an insiders perspective that points out how the music industry forces women singers into three molds, and how that increasingly this means that women are pushed to flaunt their bodies more and more in revealing clothing.

And all of this is very interesting until you read this article from in Salon:

Meet the sex-obsessed Christian group trying to launch a crusade against television

As anyone familiar with the Christian right can attest, there are a great many sayings Christians spout that are less charitable than it would seem. “I’ll pray for you” is a passive-aggressive way to tell someone to shove off. “It’s in the Lord’s hands” means that the speaker cannot be bothered to actually do something about a problem. And “we’re doing this for the children” means that adults and teenagers are doing something the Christian conservative thinks is ungodly, and children will be invoked to excuse attempts to control the choices of older people.  Read more here

 

Seems it is all those nasty Christians fault.  Yes we are sex obsessed puritans that only want to spoil your fun and keep Beyonce from performing.  You know maybe, just maybe the two of these writers (Church, Marcotte) should get together.

Speaking of England turns out that Stonehenge is giving up it’s secrets and what is the interesting part is that the secrets are coming from underneath.  It seems that what is on top isn’t as interesting as what is underneath the stones.  Read more here.

I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock.  Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. Acts 20:29-30

Here is an article from Cracked by an anonymous writer that talks about the time he was faith healer and the six ways he scammed people out of their money, but not only their money, he scammed them out of their faith.  And that is what is worse.

And that is it, please fasten your seat belts I know it seems like we just got flying but some trips are more like hops than leaps see you again next Friday.
