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.

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…

Mildred Pierce: Joan vs. Kate

Mildred Pierce was a book written in 1941. A book that was also made in to two separate movies. One in 1945 starring Joan Crawford and the other in 2011 starring Kate Winslet.


Just recently I have watched both films, mostly because I was tired of hearing how amazing Joan Crawford was and how Kate Winslet's version would never come close. After having watched both, I realize what I knew before, these people are really stupid. People who say this without proper knowledge of having seen Kate Winslet are just saying this because you must assume the older version is always better. They are making the assumption Kate Winslet can never compare to Joan Crawford because, well, because it is Joan Crawford and she won an Oscar for this role. I haven't seen any of the other movies that were performances of that category in 1945, but she does seem to have deserved it. 
I love both performances and I loved both film versions. I still like Kate Winslet's version as a whole. These are the…

Dear White People. Dear Humans. Another skinny white girl talking about racism in America...

Dear fellow white people: please stop using the reference "All Lives Matter". Also stop using the reference "white privilege". One is a defensive action, the other is white guilt trying to force white guilt. Both assume that you understand what it means to be a black citizen in this country. Both are responses to white guilt. I do not know the struggle, and I am not guilty just because I was born white. I've done nothing wrong, I will not apologize for something I had no control over. White privilege was never something I experienced, especially while I grew up in trailer parks...with other poor white people.

How about instead of indignation, we just all support the cause of Black Lives Matter? This will be your way of showing that all lives matter without saying it. When there is a peaceful protest, maybe you should join. There should be blacks, whites, cops, hispanics, everyone joining together. We don't have to be on any one side other than justice. Any p…
