WOW. FRANCES IS SO VERY GOOD. AND ‘AMERICAN HORROR STORY’ SCARES THE FUCK OUT OF ME.
I WAS ALMOST RAN OVER BY A COURIER VAN TODAY. HE CAME SCREAMING OUT OF A DRIVEWAY, AND I GOT OUT OF THE WAY. I SHOUTED ‘WHAT THE FUCK DUDE’. HE KINDA SNEERED AND THEN BACKED UP, ON THE MOTHER LOVING FOOTPATH, AND STILL KEPT DRIVING AS IF I DID NOT MATTER, OR WHY SHOULD HE CARE. HE HAD NOT HIT ME – NO THANKS TO HIM AT ALL, NOT CHECKING HIS REAR VIEW MIRRORS AT ALL DURING HIS REALLY SHITTY ATTEMPT AT LIFE AND I SHOUTED ‘ THIS IS THE FUCKING PAVEMENT’. HE DISMISSED ME WITHOUT EVEN A PASSING APOLOGY AND DROVE OFF.
AND THEN TONIGHT WATCHING THE SO HUMAN ‘CAMPBELL LIVE’ TONIGHT, THE TRAIN DRIVER TALKING ABOUT DRIVERS AND PEDESTRAIANS RUNNING LIGHTS, BARRIERS ANYTHING TO GET SOMEWHERE FASTER. HE SAID, SOMETHING LIKE ‘WHAT IS SO IMPORTANT, WHY DO PEOPLE NOT JUST TAKE THE TIME……’
SO TRUE. WHAT IS SO IMPORTANT? WHY DO WE RUN FROM PILLAR TO POST. WHY DO WE NOT CARE ANYMORE? ABOUT OURSELVES AND OTHER HUMANS?
I THOUGHT OF THIS LOVELY SCENE FROM ‘THE COLOUR PURPLE’……
AND THEN THIS AMAZING DIALOGUE FROM ONE OF MY FAVOURITE, HUMANIST FILM, ‘HAROLD AND MAUDE’……
MAYBE, SOMETIMES WE ALL NEED TO JUST SLOW DOWN. NOTICE THE COLOUR PURPLE. REALIZE THAT EVERYONE, EVEN COURIER DRIVERS…ARE SPECIAL. AND HUMAN. AND SIMPLIFY.
THIS SONG FROM ‘CANDIDE’ WHICH HAS HAUNTED MY LIFE, STATES IT SO WELL.
IN THEY BOOK/PLAY/MUSICAL, OUR CHARACTERS, ALL OF THEM. HAVE BEEN RAPED, LOST EVERYONE THEY LOVED, BEEN TOTALLY DEGRADED, AND THIS SONG SUMS UP JUST WHAT DO WE NEED TO SURVIVE. AND BE HAPPY. AND BE GOOD PEOPLE…..
LIVE WELL AND DO THE BEST YOU KNOW.
This is the shity national Enquirer, so take with a grain of salt. I am just using it as excuse to post her in the musical of ‘The Colour Purple’.
One of Fantasia’s “close family friends” ran there mouth over to the National Enquirer (via Celebitchy) to claim that she is currently growing a baby in her womb. According to the source, the father of Fanny’s unborn child is her married piece Antwaun Cook. The same married piece whose estranged wife is threatening to sue Fanny’s ass for committing acts of homewreckery.
The source said to the Enquirer, “She’s about three months along, and it’s definitely Antwaun’s baby. Right now she can’t show how happy she is in public – but she’s absolutely thrilled. Fantasia got what she wanted. She feels Antwaun will have to marry her now.”
If this is made of truth, then this means that Fanny knew she was pregnant when she tried to off herself by downing more pills than Hamish Goulter on a Saturday night.
