A friend's situation:

Am I projecting my best art
On a wall already hung upon?
My best part
Hung upon a wall already taken.

Am I projecting my best art
In a room no one will enter?
My best part
In a room that is vacant.

My fine art somewhere
With too much fine print
Hung up on hanging on.

To what?

I hate to spoil the show, like the older sibling privy of knowing and then sharing Santa Claus's fictitious nature, but I will: Al Qaeda is not real. I feel like punching people in their propoganda (I love me some alliteration) filled bellies for endorsing this Syria shit. Are you serious? It's time for some to take a time out and take a nap. Or better yet, WAKE UP.

P.S. Two acronyms/phrases I've never said: YOLO and turn up. Snobbishness? Maybe.

Piece By Piece

There once was a girl who never knew love
Who only knew toys
And boys
She broke her toy
A boy
Who loved her from the start

She cut the threads of his chest
Stitch by stitch
Ripped out his middle
Pinch by pinch
Looked for the blue in his chocolate eyes
And whispered in his ear,
Toys don’t cry

She put him back together
Promised him they'd be together
She soon put him on the shelf
Wanted to play with something else
What's the difference between a toy
And a boy
When you have a broken heart

In time she changed
And so did he
Not his love
But what it could be. Eventually
He wanted to love someone else
She returned to the shelf
Now it sat empty
And so was she

There once was a girl who never knew love
Who only knew toys 
And boys
She broke her boy
The one
Who she loved from the start.

I seem to have been a bit reticent lately. I'm always taking inventory, observing, processing, but now, I think I'm going to step upon my "I. Don't. Give. A. Fuck." soap box. First by revisiting something I've stated before. There are 3.5 billion women on the planet. Women: Cultivate and value other aspects of yourself other than your vagina. I'm sure you think yours is exceptional; I know, I think mine is too. So what? Then what? It is not a rare commodity.


Today while at Barnes and Noble I saw a magazine who's heading read "Black Love". Is black love different from any other kind of love? Love is love. People are people. This brought to mind a theory I've considered. I think that "Black History Month" and "Black Love" and any other sort of exclusion does not exalt, but further excludes the black race from the collective. In regards to Black History Month, black history should be included as a facet of American History. I could continue, but it's time for my delicious dinner. Enjoy your evening!!

My sister raves about turtle soup. I think turtles are majestic creatures and would never take the culinary plunge. Grey Goose gimlet martinis used to be my official drink. I now prefer fine tequila. Patron works. I patron Whole Foods nearly every day for a vegetable juice concoction even though I have a $600 Vitamix (resting) on my counter. I like music best in the car. I like fine toiletries, chips and salsa, avocados, game shows, gambling, the smell of tuber roses. I like to read. I am an autodidact and am autonomous. I could go on, but I have said "I" far too much.

What is the purpose of this blog? Superfluousness? Just wanted to say a bunch of mundane shit BECAUSE I STILL CAN. Because my right to articulate my thoughts still exists. Whether it's purposeful, prudent, prolific, perverted- whatever the prose- I should be able to say it! The 1st and 6th Amendments may soon be a liberty of the past. Please petition the SOPA and PIPA bills and Senate Bill 1867.

Continue to thrive, be happy.. Also, be aware.

My horoscope this week theorizes on the "enemy of love". Some examples being time, marriage, and capitalism, which "makes a fetish out of sex". I could definitely see how capitalism skews one's attitude towards sex. It states that the most dangerous enemy of love is not listening well. Are they implying that I am lacking this quality? Ummm... I disagree.. I will read no further (not listening?). I just got off of the phone with my grandma who I call and listen to for 30 minutes plus, three days a week about the most mundane activities possible- like picking the mail up at 3PM, supported by ten reasons why she picks the mail up at three. "Speaking of mail, when I was your age, your grandfather..." See what I mean? I'm a listening pro, and if you've managed to read this far, so are you. Hee-hee!

Today I volunteered at Books for Africa- a large organization which sends millions of books (over 25 million) to Africa, primarily textbooks ranging from kindergarden to post-secondary education levels, to those without "at the moment". Whenever I say something like "without" or "don't have" or anything that leans towards lack, I always say "at the moment" or "yet" because I believe magic is always at work behind the scenes.

"At the moment" (haha) I am at Starbucks. My intent was to get a table by the window at Barnes where I always sit but every isle in the store was filled with people who were waiting for the opportunity to meet and greet the in-store guest, Russell Simmons. Most guests, ok, 98% of them were African American. A similar situation but different aggregation turned out when Laura Bush made an in-store appearance last summer. I wonder, why must one limit their means of motivation and inspiration from one who physically and perhaps socially most resembles themselves? In a store with thousands of choices, why choose a voice that sounds familiar? I think of those in Africa who may only have access to one leisure read, ever, which they likely will read over and over. One choice. So as Americans, with choices so abundant, why one so undeviating? Emotions are universal; people are people. Why not relate emotionally and intellectually in the foreground with those in a dissimilar background- in untold hues and in foreign locations? Why as Americans are we such creatures of habit and not of opportunity?

I shopped at Whole Foods today and because of my findings yesterday (Whole Food's recent acquiescence to agribiz giants), I did not enjoy my regular shopping experience the same. I can imagine Whole Foods had little say in the matter; a matter that I am very much bothered by. On there is an article listing the top "Ten Reasons to Say No GMOs". I listed three of them; the commentary that follows is mine.

One. Freedom: GM crops denature the role of farmers, who have always improved and selected their own seeds. GM seeds are owned by multinationals to whom the farmer must turn every new season, because, like all commercial hybrids, second-generation GMOs do not give good results. It is also forbidden for farmers to try to improve the variety without paying expensive royalties.

It's theft! Apparently we as a nation have not moved from the Puritanism from America's onset. To the Indians, "I know you've descended upon this land far before we, but we want it." Much like, to the farmers, "I know you've been growing your crop here for generations on your land but our seeds raped yours- those that you have been saving and planting. "Our check will be in the mail next week, right?...No?...Oh!...See ya in court."

Two. Hunger: Multinationals instead promise that GMOs will feed the world, but since they began to be marketed around 15 years ago, the number of starving people in the world has only grown, just like the profits of the companies that produce the seeds.

Speaking of growth, how about body mass indexes of American adults and children? 30.6% of kids are obese. I remember only one or two per class when I was in elementary school (poor things). That was in the 80's and GMO's began in 1986. As stated in an article in January 2011's National Geographic, the only way to decrease famine in the world is by population reduction. Not a mass production of corn and soy.

Three. Health: It has been shown that animals fed with GMOs can develop health problems.

So if it is not for the touted "feed the world" guise, what is it? Profit!!! Fascism!!! From the farms to the pharmaceuticals. "We'll make you sick on food and when you don't feel so well, go see our buddies. They'll pump you full of drugs!"


Obama... Just like his predecessor, his interests lie in his cozy relations with agrabiz lobbyists and his loyalty to campaign donors. My friend and fellow conscious consumer brought to my attention today that Obama selected pro-biotech, pro-GMO, Monsanto advocate, Tom Vilsack for USDA Secretary. A shocker? No. A disappointing choice? Indeed.

Now top executives from Whole Foods Market, Orgainc Valley, and Stonyfield Farm have publicly admitted that they no longer oppose the mass commercialization of GE crops, such as Monsanto's controversial Roundup Ready alfalfa, and are prepared to sit down and cut a deal for "coexistence" with Monsanto and USDA biotech cheerleader Tom Vilsack.

"The policy set for GE alfalfa will most likely guide policies for other GE crops as well. True coexistence is a must." - Whole Foods Market, Jan. 21, 2011

I have been theorizing as to why "coexistence is a must". Is it because of the likelihood of cross-pollination between GMO and non-GMO seeds? Not only would organic farmers have to answer to (and pay) the owners of the patented seeds- essentially, there wouldn't be organic crops- all food would be GMO. In turn, Whole Foods Market and sellers of organic goods wouldn't have a product. They would be out of business.
