Hey Media, what does this mean…exactly?

Posted by thecanvasgrey on October 11, 2008

It seems we’ve been upgrading computers and machines and downgrading our humanity and individuality for so long it is hard to spot until the finger is pointed at us.

Could any of us take the scrutiny that so many take in the media these days? 

From a mother disciplining her child in what she thought was private; to whether a FEMALE candidate should have her young family with her; to a mother so divided between so many duties, wife, mother, housekeeper, executive that she would forget her own newborn, these are ordinary people thrust into the limelight.  Being judged as if there was no humanity and that they should have never made a mistake or done that, shame on them.

Have you compared them with the Hollywood elite that all the media root for to do better, Brittany, Paris, Lindsey?  Seems they can make repeated mistakes, vowing to do something better with their lives and…well, you know the rest…they are rubber and we are glue.

Feel left out as an ordinary person?  What if it happened to you?  Which category would you fall into? 

It makes one wonder if “us worker bees” are being set up to work as computers with nary a mistake to be made and those that are deemed by the media as “queen bees” get passes for being “human.” 

Makes a difference as to how the media depits it all, doesn’t it?  Bias in the media?  Oh come on…they are all fair and balanced.

So which island will you land on?   THE ISLAND

Dear Bev,

Posted by thecanvasgrey on November 25, 2007

I’ve looked high and low.  I’ve tried ALL the video post sites.  YouTube won’t let me upload because of the file type or restrictions.  I would LOVE to post what you sent me for everyone to see but I’m just too technically challenged (I guess).  Thanks for sharing with me.  I wish I could share with everyone. 

Thanks so much!

**Bev sent me an AWESOME video of a blue tube dancing around.  At first I thought it was some type of animation.  I don’t want to tell everything because I’m wondering if any other readers have seen this OR know where I could link to for our collective viewing pleasure OR could suggest how I could get a video into YouTube (or somewhere else) without sending along the software it was recorded on… ha…I think the first two would be easiest.  It is very creative and I REALLY appreciate Bev sharing it with me…so thoughtful!**

Hot Fashion Trend Alert for Women

Posted by thecanvasgrey on October 25, 2007

TREND:  Women wearing their PJs (pajamas) to the store. 

THE RULES:  You may NOT wear baby dolls, gowns or house coats…that is tacky and what mama would wear.  It must be a shirt or hoodie with PJ bottoms and slippers!!!! 

My dear friends came to visit from another state last month.  She could hardly believe I was serious about this latest trend UNTIL she got back to her state walked into the store and first thing she saw was….yep.   We laughed for 2 solid minutes when she called on her cell.   

I guess we found this odd because the grocery store is the PERFECT place to meet the PERFECT eligible man (a man who cooks **wink wink nudge nudge**).

Over the last year I’ve seen everything from a green hoodie, white leggings with pink tulips and bunnie slippers to a yellow camisole, purple M.C. Hammer pants with grandpa slippers.  Some looked not bad…others looked ridiculous! RE-DIC-YOU-LESS cause ya ain’t catching a man you’d want in a get-up like that! 

Although I may now consider investing in THESE as the next WHAT TO WEAR!

UPDATE 12/12/07  Ladies, ladies…. alert alert…I kid you not! At school pick up I saw it! Yellow as the sun PJ shirt, brown pj pants and TWEETY YELLOW slippers…fluffy yellow slippers. The trend GROWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Update 12/19/07  Come on people!  This is becoming the thing to do in our area.  I see the slippers out on the street now…BIG FLUFFIES!  We all better hurry over to this website to purchase these before they are SOLD OUT!
