Selfish Buncha Bitches

Today's is a little bit of an add on to what I wrote yesterday. 

Today I was reading yet another article about personality. This particular article was written about attachment styles and how to fix your particular style. I can remember reading about this while getting my psych degree and thought the same thing I thought then. Damn, I am fucked. I'm also the person that reads articles about how to spot a sociopath and wonder whether I am actually a sociopath. That's not really the point though. 

There is another article about personality. Another article about what might be wrong with us. Another article on how we can actually fix what is wrong with us. This is sort of what the quizzes themselves are about. The difference between them is that the quizzes only fill out the good parts of who you think you are. These articles seem to emphasize everything that is wrong with you. How do you fix you?

There isn't really anything wrong with this because really it just makes us a more self aware society. 
Consider this...When people think about the 1940's or 1950's in the United States, they will usually think typical American family, united society. This is what Captain America hated about the new America right? People are now out for themselves. Women are no longer staying at home just to take care of children, fathers aren't there just to go and earn money for their family. Society isn't the same as a whole either.

I just assume that people from this (racist, consumer driven) society also drank more.

Self awareness in a society could be an adequate reason for the selfish buncha bitches that we are. I know what kind of attachment style that I am right now, I even know what I need to do to fix it. Possibly therapy is what the article says, but I say squash that shit down until it isn't noticeable. 

You know what else we have as a self aware society though? 

A society that actually gives a shit. People are all aware about what we eat now. I don't want to eat poison, therefore I must make a change. 

People are so scared of racism now that they can't describe people. What did the woman look like? Well, she was kind of short, kinda fat and had dark hair and uh...dark eyes...

As long as that quiz says that I am a kind and generous person, then obviously I need to be a kind and generous person right? 

I guess as long as we are a society so interested in psychology and self awareness then it only makes sense that people will either take interest or notice others around them. We find ways to fix things that are broken and we go out of our way to help people that might need it. I'm not saying everyone is like this obviously, but living in a society that allows people to fight about animal rights means there are a large amount. Something is obviously going right when we can worry about the rights of tiny animals.

"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…

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…

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…
