A Whale of a Tale

A Whale of a tale

There once was a whale
who hated the name
being called a humpback whale
only brought this whale to shame

So he asked the other creatures
if they liked what they were called
an octopus started bitching
while a puffer-fish just balled

the star fish seemed rather happy
but the hammer-heads were pissed
an eel seemed rather confused
and the “Kissing” fish
well – they just kissed

the veil on the whale was lifted
humans made up these silly names
he could be whatever he wanted
he didn’t have to play thier games

he was free to be an octopus
or he could call himself a cat
he could call himself a tuna fish
or an under-water bat

but he decided he was a dog
and swam upon the shore
the humans put him back out to sea
he won’t do that shit no more

but in his mind he was free
to be whatever he wanted to be
and with his newfound freedom
he swam off happily

A Sticky Situation

Here is a quick animation I did using a program called Krita 3.0.  If you could use a great graphics program you should look into Krita.  It’s open source (free) and extremely versatile.  Enjoy!

The News Today

While I’m watching the news lately, more and more I see so many reports that piss me off.  It’s not really the situations being reported on that get on my nerves.  It’s what the reporters are saying that gets my ass hairs up.

For example: January 25, 2017 (drinking coffee watching a morning news show)

The coffee kicks in and for some reason I focus on the television.  The reporter is blathering on.

The Oscars are coming up soon I guess and apparently last year there was a movement known as “Oscars So White” because no people of color were nominated the previous year.

However, this year there are seven people or movies with people of color up for contention. Something like that.

Yipee!      Right?

Hold on.

Because  then – in conclusion, the reporter says,

“It would seem now, people of color are feeling a little better about this situation.”

Wait a minute – – –

WHAT!?

You – as a reporter – can report that some people of color told YOU they feel good about that shit.  And that’s it!  Report the facts.

But you can’t report that now ALL people of color feel good about the shit.

Lumping everyone into one – fucking – group!  WTF is wrong with you?!!

IT’S 2017(EEEeeeen!)Dammit

That’s where the phrase, “and now back to your regular programming” comes into play.

Trying to tell me (as a person of color) how I should feel about shit.

I’ll be having a conversation with someone tomorrow and they’ll regurgitate that shit back at me.

“well, they said that everyone’s pleased with the Oscars this year?”

Then I say, “when you say everyone, who do you mean?”

Look of horror, “Huh”
