Country hip hop dancing

Prediction: This will be the hot new craze sweeping the world in 10 ... 9... 8.... But seriously, how has this video not been seen and worshipped yet? Where can I learn these moves. Is there a class I can take? Maybe at the T? First thing Monday morning though, I am going out and getting my hair did just like that hot bitch.


Important news

I love the irony of the guy protesting: "I am not a piece of meat!." Um .... really?


Rescue Ink takes in Rottweiler, injured while heroically defending family and home

What an amazing story! It's all so sad and heartbreaking at the same time. Poor Rottie baby. But I have trememdous respect for these guys, the REscue Ink guys. I always try to instil the idea in my students not to judge a book by its cover and looking at these guys, one would be forgiven for thinking they were a bunch of hoods. But the truth is, they are angels. Peace be upon you all.

"Just call a spade a spade!'

OH GIRL, *wiping tears of laughter, YOU'RE FABULOUS! Thanks, I needed a good laugh today.


japanese prank, 100men running

This is oddly funny ... a Japanese game show tries to see if people will start running from these mobs, if I understand the premise correctly. I couldn't stop laughing. Maybe I need a hobby.

What the ...?


I'm a sucker for cute animal videos. Check out the adorable doll-eyes on the deer too. Too much animal love for a black heart. Every time I see a deer, I think of being a little kid and my dad going deer hunting with all the Greek uncles. I used to beg him not to go... not because I would miss him terribly, but because I didn't want him to kill the cute baby Bambies. They never listened to me, of course. Daughters never wield great authority.
They would all return a week or two later, with huge Sasquatch beards, reeking of fire-pit smoke and whiskey, smiling from ear to ear. So proud of themselves and their hunting skills, as the carcasses hung from the rooves of their trucks, eyes wide open, swollen tongues lolling.

Dogs in the Public Space

I live in Montreal, Quebec which is a pretty darn-tootin' amazing place to live. I think it is one of the best places in all of North America in which to make your home. The architecture is beautiful, we live in two languages, we have four world-class universities, a great appreciation for culture ... I could go on and on. No one is paying me to say this! I swear. However, one of the things that could be improved in our belle ville is the friendly factor in regards to dogs. I am originally from Toronto, which, apart from its many problems was when I lived there, extremely dog-friendly. I wish I could take my dog on the metro here as I could in TO. Little things like that. Recently, the CBC radio show Daybreak asked me to come on to discuss dog-friendly cities with a gentleman who was not as receptive as I was to the idea. He did not think dogs belonged in Canadian Tire, for example, or the dry cleaners. Myself, I like seeing well-behaved dogs out and about and believe their presence discourages nefarious activities and encourages more friendly interactions.If you wanna listen, click here.

During this same period of time, I read this story about Cody the chocolate lab who goes to work every day with his master, Karim Mansour. Mr. Mansour owns a gas-station/convenience stores in Florida and put his dog to work with him every day. Many of the customers appreciate seeing the dog in the store according to Mr. Mansour:

"But the BP station is also like most other convenience stores — a sometimes strange melting pot of people from every class and creed, who at any given time could be going through some rough emotion. For those customers, Cody is the solution. He can do what the normal gas station clerk usually cannot.

"Convenience stores are so unpredictable. People come in drunk, stoned, angry, you name it," Mansour said. "He calms them down. Animals have the ability to soothe the human soul."

Earlier this year, a woman who had been fighting with her husband came into the station.

"She came in all sorts of bawling and crying," Mansour said.

Cody, sensing something wasn't right, went to the woman. She put her face next to his, and sat on the floor with him. After several minutes talking to Cody, the woman pulled herself together."

However, shortly after this story came out, someone complained about the dog to the local storm troopers: Cody is no longer allowed to be in the store. What a shame. The store doesn't prepare food. The customers are in no danger. He keeps things safe and friendly. What exactly is the problem? I realise that being the animal welfare activist that I am, I am at an extreme end of the scale. But still, I don't get it. If you would like to read more about this story, please go here. Team Cody!

This is why a dog is your best friend.

But wait, there's more!


Yup, we can tell you're real "traditional" Wow. Read this excerpt from an interview in Elle and then we'll chat:

On why she never considered in vitro fertilization, like her character in The Back-Up Plan:“When it comes to family and relationships, I’m quite traditional. Just because of the way I was raised. And I also believe in God and I have a lot of faith in that, so I just felt like you don’t mess with things like that. And I guess deep down I really felt like either this is not going to happen for me or it is. You know what I mean? And if it is, it will. And if it’s not, it’s not going to.”

On the merit of her romantic comedies:
“I think Maid in Manhattan and Monster-in-Law are very layered movies. And that’s why they’re so successful. People don’t like shitty romantic comedies. Nothing that’s shitty is going to make $100 million.”

On hosting a dinner for Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor:“She didn’t realize what she was going to symbolize. And it’s always scary to be thrown into it–that’s what I felt like when I did Selena. You’re thrown out there, and all of a sudden you’re not anonymous. You are now known. And that’s a lot to handle. It’s scary at first. Then you get used to it. And so she was in that moment of her life where it’s just like, What the hell? Everybody’s clapping for me. People are writing about me, talking about me, I’m on TV. She was just a judge in New York.”

On competing with twenty-something pop idols as a 40-year-old mom: “This is what I do—what, because I have kids and a husband now I’m not supposed to be
me? I’m a more heightened me if anything. Hyper J.Lo. Everything I wanted before, I want twice as much now. And that doesn’t mean material things; it means to explore more, to think more. Being an artist doesn’t start because you’re 21, and it doesn’t end because you’re 51. You are who you are until the day you die.”

On betrayal: “This is something I haven’t been through once in my life. This is something I’ve been through a few times in my life. Where you really have your eggs in one basket and that breach happens and you know you should go but you’re still in love and you just don’t know what to do. It hits you because it’s not like you’re a cheater, and a liar, and I hate you, and you’re no good, and I’m leaving. It’s not that. It’s like, I’m tormented. Even though you’ve done this and I know it, I still don’t know what to do. I know I should go, but I don’t want to. And that’s why it’s such a f-cked-up thing.”

[From Elle Magazine]

I am almost speechless with wonder. Where is Mother Teresa? I am sure the mother would have appreciated J-Lo's expertise with thelogy. Her comment "And I also believe in God and I have a lot of faith in that, so I just felt like you don’t mess with things like that" was so moving that I almost jumped off my athiest bandwagon.  She also says she's gonna send her kids to Scientology school.

You can tell I am a huge fan of this amazing artist.

Another reason why the celebrity machine is pathetic

Meryl Streep's inspiration, noted thespian and star of that acclaimed piece of artistry "Gigli", Jennifer Lopez aka J-Lo thinks she was robbed of an Academy Award. That is right, Jello thinks she's Oscar-worthy. In fact, she trumpets to Latina magazine that she should have won an Oscar. HAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, I needed a good laugh. Thanks Jenny! But seriously, this is what she said: “I feel like I had that [Oscar worthy role] in El Cantante, but Idon’t even think the academy members saw it. I feel like it’s their responsibility to do that, to see everything that’s out there,
everything that could be great. Well, it is a little bit frustrating. It was funny; when the Oscars were on, I had just given birth on the 22nd, and the Oscars, I think, were a day or two later. I was sitting there with my twins—I couldn’t have been happier—but I was like, ‘How dope would it have been if I would’ve won the Oscar and been here in my
hospital bed accepting the award?’ ‘Thank you so much! I just want to thank the academy!’ But we joked about it. It’s all good. Things will happen when they’re supposed to happen. I have the utmost faith and no doubt that it will one day, when and if it’s supposed to. You can’t get all crazy twisted over it.”

Yup. Uh huh. That would have been "dope". In fact, I wish she would've won, just so I could watch the faces of those Academy types when she gave her humble speech. I think it would have gone something like this: "Yo yo yo! What up?! First off, wanna a give a shout out to my God! *fist pump* this is so dope y'all. I know I just gave birth to 2 babies, but this is the shit. I thank you and I promise to always keep it real wich y'all. *fist pump* I'm out!! *kisses her peace sign fingers*
   Seriously though, this delusional fool makes Whitney Houston seem like the voice of reason. I like what Lainey said this morning:   "Let’s look back, shall we?

El Cantante
would have been
eligible in either 2006 or 2007, I can’t remember. To be thorough,
we’ll examine the nominees for Oscar’s Leading Actress in both those

Penelope Cruz, Volver
Judi Dench, Notes on a Scandal
Helen Mirren, The Queen
Meryl Streep, The Devil Wears Prada
Kate Winslet, Little Children

Helen Mirren was the eventual winner, OBVIOUSLY. But you tell me, on that list, is there room for Jennifer Lopez’s ass? Please.

Cate Blanchett, Elizabeth The Golden Age
Julie Christie, Away From Her
Marion Cotillard, La Vie en Rose
Laura Linney, The Savages
Ellen Page, Juno

Cotillard was the eventual winner, OBVIOUSLY. But you tell me, on that
list, is there room for Jennifer Lopez’s ass? Please.

This is the vanity. How vain. To sit around, having seen none of the other
films in contention – because you KNOW she has no clue – and
contemplate the ludicrous possibility of a nomination."

She totally nailed it. Vanity? Check. But it goes beyond all that too. She calls herself an artist. An artist? Really, J-Lo? Why? You don't create anything. People create things for you and then you take credit for them. Artists capture and document the particular zeitgeist of a time. You sing about Louboutins. Ridiculously overpriced shoes. I don't think Shakespeare would have written sonnets to audaciously expensive fashion goods. Okay, you are not a terrible actress, but come on. This is celebrity, people. This self-entitled smug attitude that makes people like her, like the Speidis, the Kardassians of the world. It really has to stop.
