All I Want in 2018 Is…

…for sex education to be made mandatory in schools. In India. There’s a lot of people – a majority, in fact – that have no idea about even the anatomy of those nether regions. No wonder we are breeding like crazy. Birth control is something many people won’t even talk about.

…for the country to be a safer place for girls to live in. Can we please stop with the rape culture, already? It’s not culture if bacteria has more of it than you do.

…for people to act more human. I’ve seen animals show more humanity than most people. It’s just plain simple sad.

…for caste system and religious fanaticism and jihad to die. If you want something, talk about it. Don’t try to take claim by force. War, hatred and negativity isn’t the answer. It’s never been and never will be.

…for guys to stop trying to get…

Pentatonix’s Brand New Spin On John Lennon’s Classic

Putting Tears In Everyone’s Eyes

Everyone knows the John Lennon song, “Imagine” – but Pentatonix puts their own spin on it with a powerful message that everyone can take to heart! Their voices, coupled with the moving lyrics first penned by Lennon in May 1971, come together to make a rendition of the song that everyone should hear at least once in their life!

Lennon’ inspiration for “Imagine” came about when he tried to envision a world with only peace, and without the division among all people.

The song was released later that year in October, and it was an instant hit.

Since it’s release, “Imagine” has been covered by countless artists and groups hoping to share the same message of inclusion and love.

Such is the case with Pentatonix’s chilling version!

FEMINIST FRIDAY

Check out the video in this post! You’ll be glad you did!

Haddon Musings

I read this story this week about this amazing woman.  Viola Smith has been called the counterpart of Gene Krupa.  I know that you are going to enjoy getting to know Viola and I have embedded a video of her playing those drums for your enjoyment.  As Viola says:

‘Never lose your groove!’

Viola Smith turns 101 this month. As the oldest member of Local 802, she has an important lesson to teach all of us: never lose your groove!

We have a living legend in our ranks. At 100 years old, Viola Smith – who was one of the first professional female drummers and was called the female Gene Krupa – is probably the oldest active member of Local 802. (In fact, she turns 101 this month, on Nov. 29.) She first joined Local 802 in 1942.

She was born Viola Schmitz in Mount Calvary, Wisconsin, where her father…

#MusicMonday: Sometimes You Just Can’t Fight It

I am so glad to be back in action. There’s so much good work to read and discover!

Stereotypically Able

Music has always been a huge part of my life. I mean, I wouldn’t live in the entertainment capital of the world if it wasn’t, so I’m going to start doing something new every Monday.  I am going to share a song or music video that I love at that moment. So without further ado. I introduce to you Rayvon Owen and his music video for his new single “Can’t Fight It.” (see below for video).

Rayvon has come a long way since his stint on American Idol (where he was in the top 5), musically and personally.  You see, not only did he release his music video today, he also used that platform to say that he identifies as a gay man.  In the song he sings about how there are those moments where you just cannot fight the feelings that you have for people and that is where learning…
