Random Musings

Ethan Couch, the so-called “Affluenza Teen,” who murdered four people driving drunk and was subsequently sentenced to probation  for that crime, will now spend the next two years in adult prison for violating his probation.

Judge Wayne Salvant: “You’re not getting out of jail today.”

And perhaps not for 720 days. And Ethan’s idiot mother, Tonya, who helped him flee Texas after video surfaced that seemed to show Couch drinking alcohol, is facing 10 years in prison if convicted.

I’m liking that …
Okay, so ABCs Once Upon A Time is a Hot Bed of Hot Men — I’m liking that visual — and last week was no exception as they introduced Wes Brown, top ... I think ... as Gaston, from Beauty and the Beast. He is definitely a beauty.

Then we watched Ricki and the Flash, starring Meryl Streep, a rather formulaic film about a mother — Streep — who abandons her children to pursue her career as a musician, and then has all kinds of troubles trying to reconnect. It was bearable for a few reasons:

Meryl Streep, of course

A joke made by Meryl’s character when she was asked at a wedding by someone who didn’t know she was the groom’s mother, how she knew the groom, and she replied: “Caesarean section.”

And, it was made hot by both Sebastian Stan — bottom left and openly hot — and Nick Westrate — bottom right and openly gay and openly hot — as her sons.

Following Bruce Springsteen's lead — he cancelled a North Carolina concert in protest of that state’s hate bill — Bryan Adams has canceled a show in Mississippi to protest that state’s passing of what has been described as the most aggressive anti-LGBT law in America.

And then quoting the Beatles classic All You Need Is Love, Ringo Starr cancelled his June 18th concert in Cary, North Carolina, and vowed to fight “against the bigotry of HB2.”

Add Sharon Stone to the list, because she was set to film a movie in Mississippi but she and the producers decided to move filming to a less hate-filled area of the country … most likely not the South.
While it seems certain that Donald [t]Rump will win the GOP primary in New York, there are at least two people who will not get his vote: his children Ivanka and Eric.

The kids have never registered to vote in the state’s closed primary and [t]Rump says they missed the deadline to vote for Daddy because they were unaware of the rules.

Look, if my father was running for president the first thing I would do, if I had never registered to vote and I was in my thirties, would be to get downtown and register my ass to vote.

But [t]Rump kids don’t need politics because they have Daddy's cash.
Planting Peace has done it again with a new sign welcoming visitors to North Carolina in light of their recent legalization of Hate.
Also, on Ivanka. I like her, I do; she seems kinda level-headed and smart but then she said, of her father’s penchant for being anti-women, how he gave her a chance to prove herself in business just like her brothers.

Yeah, I remember the years Ivanka [t]Rump spent as a maid at a [t]Rump property, or worked in the mailroom at a [t]Rump enterprise.

Look, she’s smart; she went to business school; but when she got out Daddy gave her a job. She never really worked for it and for her to suggest that means her daddy is pro-women is laughable,

And stupid; and [t]Rump-like.

Your right about once upon a time. Wes is tooooo many kinds of sexy. It's beyond me why they don't rename that show Hot Bed of Men. Meanwhile the Trumps. Having met Ivanka several times, she is the only member I like. She down to earth and not uppity in the slightest. Good head on her and very personable. I have also met Eric. Unfortunately his sons take after Donald. Pompous.
