Let the Infinity War memes begin!

I've watched the film five times thus far (you're welcome, Marvel Studios, for my help in getting you to $1 billion in total worldwide box office in just 11 days) and every audience leaves the theatre in stunned silence.

Yes, great show. No spoilers from me but the ending will leave many people stunned.  :o

Please don't make me have to explain this to you. Because I can only explain part of it.

Just thought you should know: June 2 is International Whore's Day. Seriously.

http://www.vox.com/first-person/2018/6/1/17416750/international-whores-day-nyc-stripper-strike

Forty-three years ago, 100 prostitutes occupied a church in Lyon, France, for an eight-day strike. With the help of the Catholic Church, they, along with women in five other French cities, took refuge in protected sacred spaces and spoke out against police abuses of sex workers. Decades later, June 2 is still recognized as International Whoresí Day by sex workersí rights groups.

It's not just prostitutes and escorts; it's dancers as well. Society assumes that any exotic dancer is little better than a cheap whore, and treats them accordingly. They are harassed and abused; their complaints are often ignored by authorities. And they tend to be subject to the same laws and lobbying groups that target **31**.

Recently, dancers in New Orleans successfully marched against police raids on their clubs (which often led to degrading treatment from the police), and stopped a law that would limit the number of clubs on Bourbon Street. In New York City, dancers called for a "stripper strike" to protest racial discrimination and unfair labor practices.

In addition to those pressures, dancers were fighting the kinds of problems faced by independent contractors long before ďgig economyĒ became a common phrase. If a dancer brings a sexual harassment or workers comp suit against a club, she has to first prove that she is an employee in court or through a state labor board to even have the standing to make the complaint. Independent contractors donít have legal protections from discrimination or harassment, nor do they have access to workers comp. And because they are rarely paid a wage by the club, after paying the house fees, a dancer can actually LOSE money on a slow night.

Here's an organization that's helping out:

This is a real obituary notice, which was published in The Redwood Falls Gazette on Monday, June 4, 2018.
"When your city is French in origin, and your Mayor and Governor are Democrats, and those most affected by this natural disaster are Black, don't expect much help from Bush." -- Left of Y'all (and the link works now too! )

Remember, life is too short to actually get annoyed about what someone you donít know, donít care about, and donít like thinks about you and what you enjoy doing.

Sorry I missed it, but I had wolves in my walls.

How was it?

The Usual Wonderful Mess.

Photos can be found at the /MermaidParade account on that social media site that uses a little blue bird as its symbol.

Below is the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, opening the beach for the Summer. You can tell it was a perfect day for a parade.

How's this for random:

Today's my own, self-imposed last day, here.  I think I need to lay low for a while.  If all works out, I'll be back, maybe this September or autumn, but with a different name and my alternate look. 

Hard to stay away. Too much fun teasing you guys.  ;)

I think so.  C wants to edit some videos with a BE slant featuring me set to songs that he thinks'll be hot, but he hasnt even finished shooting them. Too much going on in RL.
