Although I always knew his sister Peggy wrote this song, I have always had the Pete Seeger version of this in my head. I’m not the only one, either. And that’s just kind of blazingly ironic isn’t it? anyway, Peggy Seeger’s famous anthem performed by Peggy Seeger

RIP Nelson Mandela

If you had any political awareness during the 80s and into the 90s this is your eternal earbug for one of the greatest statesmen and political leaders we’ve seen in our lifetimes.

The pipes on this woman!!!

Oh, and Sinead still kicks all kinds of ass*.

“Who the f–k is advising you? Because taking me on is even more f–kin’ stupid than behaving like a prostitute and calling it feminism. You have posted today tweets of mine which are two years old, which were posted by me when I was unwell and seeking help so as to make them look like they are recent. In doing so you mock myself and Amanda Bynes for having suffered with mental health issues and for having sought help.”

“It is most unbecoming of you to respond in such a fashion to someone who expressed care for you. And worse that you are such an anti-female tool of the anti-female music industry.”

*even the flat kind

Maybe they just don’t sleep well? Or were mercilessly mocked by their parents for bedwetting?

Shut it down

This is hilarious

We are talking the summer of love and music like Jefferson Airplane, something like that.

“I never liked them. They had one good song: ‘White Rabbit.’ But it was better than [sings], ‘Are You Going to San Francisco‘ That blows.”

From Adweek:

Gil Zamora is an FBI-trained forensics artist with over 3,000 criminal sketches under his belt. Dove and Ogilvy Toronto hired him to interview and draw seven different women—two sketches of each. The first sketch was based on each woman’s personal description of herself. The second was based on a description provided by a stranger the woman had just met. Of course, the differences are vast.


Of course they are. This stuff has psychology graduate student work written all over it. Imagine the diversity of studies to be done! Me, I bet I’d describe myself in my 20s rather than the way I look now…
