I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

So…..what’s up Popeye’s? Your move.

     Look at this photo. Must Have Summer Accessories:  Canvas shoes in assorted colors, playlists and speakers for outdoor gatherings, flasks of various sizes, an assortment of headwear to combat humidity, happy bald cuties to accompany you to rooftop BBQs.

Petra invited us over to watch the fireworks during a rooftop BBQ, but I did way more drinking than eating.  Still, whiskey has no carbs right?  So if I drink all my calories I’ll be Snatched & Pruned for my birthday?  I’m sure that’s how it works.  

Grocery shopping and finishing a crossword puzzle is about all I was able to accomplish today.  I’m too old to be acting a fool every weekend.  Folsom East.  Pride Weekend.  And America’s Berfday.  Thank god there are no more holidays & celebrations ahead so I can rest up for the most important national day of observance on the calendar, Madonna & Rafi’s Birthday next month.  Start saving up for my presents, thanks.

     Hate your BBQ? Wanna ruin the Fourth for your friends? Mention slavery real quick.

I think the Fourth of July is great!  I love fireworks, drunk people, and charring dead things on a metal grate.  However, life is full of killjoys and I would be remiss in my duties as the Negative Nancy of Nuanced Shade if I didn’t call attention to the irony of celebrating “Independence” Day when America kept us in chains for another seven decades.

     Karyn Parson’s “Sweet Blackberry”: Unsung black history stories for children.

This is absolutely amazing.  I’ve watched the trailer twice now and I’m just filled with so much warmth and positivity. 

Do you know who Henry “Box” Brown is?  Do you know who invented the traffic light?  These are the first two stories in Karyn Parson’s children’s history series about unsung black heroes because, she feels telling the same stories of the same Black heroes once a year is shortchanging us.

Black history isn’t a separate history. This is all of our history, this is American history, and we need to understand that. It has such an impact on kids and their values and how they view black people. If they know about these stories, they’re empowered and think ‘Oh, this is who I come from, this is who I am.’

When you only hear about a handful of stories, the message is ‘Every once in a while, a special black person comes along.’ And that’s a dangerous message to send to everyone. It does nothing but harm black children, it does nothing but harm the idea of black people.

Ms. Parson better preach that word and say it loudly so they can hear you way in the back.

     Convenience store showdown on GA’s first day of “guns everywhere” law.

Georgia Legislature:  You know what we need?  More places where people can carry guns.  Bars, Wal-Mart, church — everywhere.  Guns everywhere.
Common Sense Regular People:  Um…for what?  What are you hunting in church?  This just gives an excuse for people to wave their guns around and act like assholes.

**fast forward to inaugural day of expansive gun legislation**

News:  Two people in a convenience store decided to wave their guns around and act like assholes.

Common Sense Regular People:  

It’s just so cute when Life writes the story better than your imagination could.

     Happy Birthday, Lindsay Lohan!

I need y’all to remember back when Lindsay had a “music” career because I am now old enough to be unashamed of my choices and I was super into her.  I loved this whole era of girl-power-pop, and I had Lindsay Lohan and Ashlee Simpson on constant rotation for like a year.

Lindsay had those couple of gay club jams though, so reminisce with me real quick…
