In Memoriam

4 Jan

 

Pomchi pistol Mary Poppins VanDyke Brown (age 10-ish) crossed over on January 3, 2017. She battled congestive heart failure for a year, and her tiny body was tired. It was a perfectly peaceful transition; she was in my arms.

From her hard-knock beginnings as an injured country stray to an anxious, long-term shelter resident to a lady of leisure and style with an editorial side job, Mary’s life ran the gamut. Loyal, loving, saucy, and cantankerous, Mary was straight fire, and we’re lucky she came our way. 

Godspeed, lil’ red sass. Immense love to you. 

And now, the gargantuan photo retrospective … 

Please adopt, don’t shop. We’re grateful to Judy Babcock and Quixote Humane, Inc. for connecting us with Mary. 

Thanks to the incredible Dr. Karol Baughman and the kind, compassionate staff at Blue Cross Animal Clinic

We love you, Mary! See you on the other side, little lady.

Is Prince Freaking Out Right Now?

20 Mar

If you believe that life doesn’t end after this round, then Prince and Chuck Berry could be chatting right now, if Prince hasn’t stopped doing this yet because he’s so excited that Chuck showed up…

From middle-class beginnings to doing reformatory time for armed robbery to working janitor and auto assembly plant jobs to siring rock ‘n’ roll, Chuck Berry did a lot. Stellar run, Chuck. We bow and smile.

If you need any more reasons to love the hell outta Chuck Berry, here are five of them…

1. If you tried to give rock ‘n’ roll another name, you might call it Chuck Berry. — John Lennon

2. I never liked blues and I really didn’t like jazz. I liked Chuck Berry. — Johnny Ramone

3. Of all the early breakthrough rock and roll artists, none is more important to the development of the music than Chuck Berry. — Cub Koda

4. There’s only one true king of rock ‘n’ roll. His name is Chuck Berry. — Stevie Wonder

5. [My mama] said, ‘You and Elvis are good, son—but you’re no Chuck Berry. Chuck Berry is rock ‘n’ roll from his head to his toes’. — Jerry Lee Lewis

Few things make us happier than palindromes. This week, they shine even brighter. We love you, palindromes; this week, and always!

Our fave palindrome, you ask? Lives drown in words evil.

Want more palindromes? Here ya’ go…

Black + Pope = YES

Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana, the current president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, is rumored to be a potential option for new pope. 

I’m keeping my fingers tightly crossed that Turkson gets to wear the Mitre. He’d be the Obama of Catholicism. It’s just what the Church needs, I say.

Shake things up, cardinals! Vote Turkson!

And the gayest city in America is…

Yes, I’m serious. 

No, I’m not joking.
