So it appears that music has certainly progressed since the slightly more innocent days of Madonna's admission to being a "Material Girl," but definitely not for the better.
I think that the Gold Diggin Divas' YouTube "About Me" profile tells you all you really need to know about this trio:
Felicia, Betsy and Sophia "the cox sisters" were born and raised in New Orleans La. Because of their hooter careers not taking off they decided against getting breast implants and taking the money to move to Los Angeles. Lucky for them their mother was able to move shortly after with her Fema from hurricane Katrina. The Cox sisters wanted to share a little bit of their New Orleans swag with Los Angeles through their rap music. They went from dating guys like the neighborhood mechanic GaryWayne, to wearing Christian Lou Boutins! N DAS A RAP!
That's the exact rip from YouTube - don't worry if you don't quite understand it all!
and in a slight video-call-and-response, I offer you this from BB King...
So gentlemen, be sure to mind Kanye's warning...
Sorry, Gold Diggin Divas don't get an album cover listed below - and I hope it stays that way!
Thanks to GoldDigginDivas, eaglerocktv, KanyeWestVevo for the uploads to YouTube.

A beautiful lesson from an enlightened soul...Tim Minchin uses the power of music to educate us about how to treat one another.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Be sure to check out his amazing poem "Storm" as well.

I guess I needed something to wake me up in order to add a new post, and wake up is just what I got from the Vegan Black Metal Chef! You don't have to be a Black Metal fan or even a fan of delicious pad thai to make it through the entire fourteen minutes of this cooking show...but it certainly doesn't hurt.
Sure, at times it may be difficult to see the ingredients through the striking chain mail, dangerous leather spikes and spooky makeup, but I think we all know what crushed peanuts look like. And yes it's true that our chef uses so many fantastic knives that by the time you see his spoon and spatula you are rightfully a bit underwhelmed, but I think we can also accept that the metal world really hasn't had time to branch out to other utensils just yet.
You have to love any dish where one of the most important instructions is calling for the "Heat of Satan!" It's a dish clearly served in Heaven - ironically taught to us by one of the minions of The Dark Lord himself!
Remember, "your knife doesn't even have to be that awesome!"

or perhaps you're just looking for a good Vegan Thai food cookbook?

Back in October, 2010 I posted Joel Burns' Message of Hope, a message letting gay teens know that life gets better and urging them to hang in there and find out. I didn't realize that his message had spawned a movement of similar messages called the It Gets Better Project, but what an amazing thing. I guess we could lament, and curse a crummy world where people are bullied to such extremes that suicide seems to be the only solution, but instead, it seems an easier choice to celebrate a world where people look out for one another, and take a moment to remind each other that it does, in fact, get better...and that you are a beautiful person.
Bravo to the brave voices who share their stories with the world and more importantly our children.
Be sure to check out The Trevor Project for more information.

Isn't this enough?
Just this world?
Just this beautiful, complex
Wonderfully unfathomable world?
How does it so fail to hold our attention
That we have to diminish it with the invention
Of cheap, man-made Myths and Monsters?
-Tim Minchin "Storm"
It's a ten minute trip worth taking...

Step into a time capsule and go back to moment when rock and roll was recovering mode from a minor implosion - and a new creativity was taking music in all sorts of new directions.
How can you possibly go wrong watching a film where The Clash take control, The Jam fire off some rifles, The Specials, Selector and Madness make ska music that moves your feet and pumps your heart full of adrenaline, and a young Chrissie Hynde makes you take notice? That's just a small bit of what you get in Wolfgang Buld's "Punk in England: British Rock - Ready for the 80's."
Get ready for an hour you'll soon wish never ended...
If you have to have it in your collection you can pick it up from Amazon:
