Gotta Love Millennials

Micah Tyler aptly sums up the Millennials. These special snowflakes are the ones you’ve got to love. No, really! You’ve got to love them and shower them with accolades, supports, and attention. Otherwise, they whine, cry, rant, rave, and throw such tantrums as to take the attention that they need so much.

The Gods Made Girls

Posted in Music, Society on May 28th, 2015

A brief word of warning – While the song in question is couched in the normal Christian monotheism of America, my commentary is in the framework of my faith, which is generally described as Pagan. If that’s going to be a larger issue for you than the actual meat of the commentary, there’s this thing called the Back Button. 😉

The Gods Made Girls

Not only is RaeLynn aka Racheal Lynn Woodward delectably cute and a fine singer, she’s got the right of things in “God Made Girls.” The Gods made women to complete men and men to complete women.

Maiden, Warrior, Mother, or Crone – whichever Aspect they currently evoke, the Gods made women to make men better than they’d otherwise be. That’s the crux of it that underlies any and all expressions of gender roles in the world.

A Hot Spaghetti Western

Before I going any further with this, thanks need to be tendered to Cmblake6 for this video which I scarfed off of his blog.

Thank The Gods They’re Country Girls

OK, I’ve always been a fan of spaghetti westerns, but when a Italian band like the Village Girls releases “Thank God I’m A Country Girl” my enjoyment of the genre reaches whole new heights.
