In order to better understand these tumultuous times we are wading through, it is imperative to have a better grasp of history. Johnny Cash released his first album on Sun Records in 1957. He was nicknamed “The Man in Black”. He expired at the tender age of 71, in 2003. One could easily say that is when the world actually ended, and we have been screaming in agony since.
The Monkees debuted in 1966; they were America’s response to England’s The Beatles, and not Oasis, like so many people believe. By the way, these “people” also believe that the world is flat and that there is a free parking lot at airports.
Current president of the United States, Dim Sum Donald Trump, continues to unravel his hatred and stupidity. Just so we’re clear, he gives the term ugly American greater depth.
If you know me, you would know that I hate music festivals. They’re too crowded, too hot, too everything that I’m no longer interested in. But, if they had a festival which included The Animals, The Monkees, Echo & The Bunnymen, Alien Ant Farm, The Fleet Foxes, Scorpions, Dinosaur Jr., Modest Mouse, The Boomtown Rats, Frightened Rabbit, Cage The Elephant, Counting Crows, Deer Tick, Mastadon, Seal, Grizzly Bear, Toto, A Flock Of Seagulls, Gorillaz, and Eagles; I would force myself to go, only so I could say this is the last festival I’ll ever go to, and why would I be so stupid to pay so much money to suffer like this.
It’s funny and tragic all at once. I never thought I’d ever compare myself to the current president of the United States, Donald Trump, yet here I am comparing and hating myself. It appears that my words have become the Melanie Trump of this blog. Where the hell are they? Did they get a tragic facelift? Are they on the cusp of painful death because of something stupid I have done or said? Did they leave me for N.Y. or Virginia because I abused them? Was it all really just a benign kidney condition? Were my words poisoned by the Russians? All FAKE news, for if you look behind you and up, there are my words, and they are proudly looking down at us.
There is a very simple explanation. My words really enjoy their privacy, and we should respect that. They need time to heal. On that note, have you noticed that Melania’s left eye is now her right? For a better understanding of what may have happened to her, I refer you to NBC news anchor, Lester Holt.
