have I told you about this habit I have where I take a particular genre, usually one I am inclined to be negatively judgmental towards without any reason except assumption (romance novels, westerns, twilight etc) and I set aside two months and I read at least 6 of them. Then, if I still negative about them, I know why and have a leg to stand on. Some genres (romance, westerns) I discover a great respect for, not that I may continue reading them, but I “get” their worth and ability to reach people because I have ceased to be a pompous, assuming a–hole and gave them a chance.



I am watching

“Jersey Shore”

I have also seen “Rock of Love,” these types of shows I can’t do with the two solid months of viewing but I know I need to give them that same time and attention.

Oh my,

I am watching as I write this and I did not realize that Pauly D was from Johnston, Rhode Island. I live in Providence and frankly, the whole guido culture is something that is made fun of by some and embraced by others.

The thing is…

they are honest in their naivete about how they may be seen by others. Within that I am starting to understand more about why this culture is so strong and also such a source of entertainment to those who don’t like it.

Right or wrong, like them or not

take a long good listen to how they relate to their families and fictive kin,

ignore how they relate to each other

what a way to spend the day

About cassandratribe

"There are few artists that can do what Cassandra Tribe does. Whether with her poetry, her videos or her blog, Cassandra examines the truths that most of us can never come close to realizing and shows it for what it is, both beautiful and frightening at the same time. She exposes our inner-most workings like the cross-section of a powerful but flawed machine, our gears and springs, nuts and bolts removed and laid out before us. She is a true artist. Her new video, Requiem for a God, is the latest example of Cassandra's willingness to tear open and examine the very things that make us human. Shooting the film entirely by herself, she also eliminates all the little excuses we come up with to keep us from ourselves and our truth. You see, even when she's not trying to be, Cassandra Tribe is a beacon of truth and humanity in this darkest of worlds." (Michael E. Quigg, The Culture Network, June 2009)
