Are you a MAC or PC?

"You're not supposed to ask about religion or politics. Now you're also not supposed to talk about Mac or PC." Gregory Lee, a nobody to everyone, but his mother. 


I can still remember the first time I ever touched a mac computer. It was the early 90s, I was in the 3rd grade and my school was taking a tour of one of the local magnet programs. In an attempt to entertain us for a few moments, the school allowed us to sit at the computers and play a common game for the PC called math busters. This and Carmen San Diego were my favorites. At the time I was young though and it didn't seem like a big deal. At the age of 10, no one really cares what type of computer they have or the fact that they are sent home with a bag of apple product stickers. 


The next time I touched a Mac was in 2004, when I was getting ready for a deployment to Iraq. One of the Officers needed me to complete a project for him, so I sat down at the Mac laptop and completed something that I don't quite remember. This is what I do remember...being absolutely hooked. I've always had problems with PC's and this was a complete marvel to me. From that moment I swore I would own a mac and immediately bought one after the deployment. I bought an iMac as soon as we returned and taught myself video editing with it. 

As you can imagine I am absolutely an apple fan. I've owned: iPod, iPhone, iPad, MacBook, Powerbook. If it has an i in the front of the name then I've probably owned it. All except for an iRon. I am not even a little ashamed to say I stole that joke. 


This is the thing with the Mac vs. PC debate. NOBODY CARES WHAT YOU PREFER. If you are a mac snob fine. I definitely am. I'm a whore for Apple and that won't change soon. If you are a PC fan, fine, good for you. I don't even care that you say you can do more things with it and get it for much cheaper. It's all a trade of depending on what you prefer. No on is wrong until they throw their condescending attitudes around and starts pissing people off. Once again, NOBODY REALLY CARES. 


Next topic will possibly make people less angry since I am considering politics, religion or perhaps both.


I leave you know with a picture of the truth.

POTUS is Decided...it is Time for Respect

Potus​ decision aside. Secretary Hillary Clinton​ is human just like the rest of us. This means she is fallible...just like the rest of us. She has humbled herself more than once for this country by owning up to her mistakes and most likely the mistakes of others. She did this because that's what leaders are supposed to do. Admit to your mistakes; take responsibility as leader for your employees’ mistakes. Then you move on from there to find solutions. Secretary Clinton showed courage, conviction, and loyalty. To her party, her President and also her country. As she continues to fight for children and what she believes is best for this country, I have more admiration for her than ever.
I hope that the people of this country will at least begin to treat her with the respect she deserves and has not received. If not for her political views or her public record, for the years of service she fought for this country, for the causes she continues to fight for and for the positions she…

Sutton Foster or Patti Lupone? Both.

"Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway."Ethel Merman



When I was 18 years old I went to my first Broadway show, the original broadway production of Mamma Mia. At the time Tina Maddigan was the lead and at the time I thought it was the greatest thing I had ever seen. Truthfully, I still have a special spot for that show and also for the lead. I don't know if this is true for everyone, but I don't see how anyone can truly forget their first show. My actual first show was watching Nutcracker in downtown Jacksonville. My teacher told me to watch for the tree and as it rose from it's spot it was spectacular. This means you will never forget your first show and you will never forget your first broadway spectacular. 



For those of you who liked the movie Mamma Mia (entire city of London), I thought it sucked. 


When I was 19 and I moved to New York, I was officially obsessed with going to the theatre. Usually, I only went to see cele…

Jesus Loves Me This I Know...Unless I'm Gay

I am a Christian, I believe God exists. The following blog is a paper I wrote for my religion class, because I wanted to find in the Bible where it stated homosexuality was a sin. As a Christian I stand by everything I write in that paper and I feel it's time we stop hiding our prejudice behind religion. I am a racist, but it's not because of the Bible, it's because white people are really dumb (joke).

Christian morality is based primarily on what has been established as their word of God, the Bible. Those who have established themselves according to these laws are considered virtuous morally and spiritually. Those who have stepped out of these guidelines have established themselves as…
