If I have to be at work, instead of working, I might as well write a blog post, right?
The court case finding in favor of Sony infuriates and disgusts me so much that I can't adequately put it into words, but I'll try. Well, first, I'll share a couple of articles that summarize what's been happening up to this point:
Okay. I get it. Dr. Luke (the accused producer) is innocent until proven guilty. And, I admit, I am no attorney. I have never studied contractual law. I am only speaking as a woman, as a person with compassion and concern about the welfare and health of another woman.
Can you imagine being forced to work at a company where your accused rapist, abuser, and tormenter is revered and in a position of power? For an album, a single, a tour, an artist to reach some success in the music industry, almost all of them need the support of their record label. Does it appear that Sony supports Kesha?

This case is an example of so many other cases. Repeatedly, we see the accuser (the victim) being doubted, being questioned, being victimized all over again, yet it continues to happen. How much courage would it take to speak out against a hugely successful person (in a powerful position) in the world of entertainment? How much strength would it take to speak out against a huge, powerful corporation like Sony? A lot of fucking courage and strength. I'm no fan of her music, but my thoughts and positive vibes are with Kesha, and others around the world are supporting her too, but, what does that support do for her happiness, health, and future career? As I stated before, I am infuriated and disgusted.
On to something a little lighter...
Von Miller is a professional football player who majored in Poultry Science at Texas A&M University (the university I graduated from). He's not just any professional football player. He was the Super Bowl 50 MVP. Because of this spotlight, people are noticing what a great guy Von Miller seems to be. And......he's not just relying on football to take care of him forever. He has his own chicken farm in Texas (using the university education). Read this article: Nerd by Von Miller
Plus, this picture has now leapt into one of my favourite fotos of all time:
Trump. I can't. I can't say anymore than what I've already said:
"Trump is a fucking embarrassment. He is a fucking idiot. Fuck him, fuck his hair, fuck his terrible spray tans, fuck his racism, fuck his bankruptcies, fuck "The Apprentice", fuck the political climate that has developed where people are actually supporting him."

I haven't shared a round of funnies lately, so here you go.....
I'd say "Happy Monday" to you, but really.............
