Rear View Mirror – My Week In Review

Oh this week…

I got a new phone and can’t figure out how to load my old junk into it, so I have two phones until I complete the data entry that is moving contacts.  Or whatever, text me and identify yourself to make sure we move forward together.

I wish I liked this song less:

Over at Waldina, we celebrated Billy Wilder‘s birthday and Judy Holliday‘s birthday.  We were inspired by Leigh Bowery, Kay Thompson, Lauren Bacall, and Tippi Hendren.

Then, at Wasp & Pear we celebrated Carol Doda, Chrissie Hynde, David Bowie, Rudolph Valentino, Polaroid Land Camera SX-70, Edie Sedgwick, Erdem Gunduz, Diane Ladd, Doris Day, The Great Gatsby (1974 film), Frances Farmer, and Bonnie and Clyde.  I cannot say enough good things about Tumblr, I Tumblr for you, do you Tumblr for me?  [you may have just witnessed my first ever pun]

Instagram launched videos and I cannot wait to see the endless supply of moving selfie-duckface-bathroom pics.  I will give it a try, if I don’t think I look gross and if I figure out how to use my new phone.

This week, I learned how to take two picnic favorites and make them one super-favorite picnic powerhouse:

In Other News:

This week was crazy with day-late-dollar-short apology videos, it’s like a whole new sub-genre on youtube.

Miss Thing over at Exodus International said he was sorry for wrapping his own self-hate up in the bible and forcing it on people for the last 37 years even though the higher-ups in the organization routinely used it as their own match.com and left it (and their opposite-sex spouses) for lives of commitment ceremonies and Sunday brunches .  He apologized for making people that were going through difficult realizations about themselves feel worse enough to contemplate, attempt, and even commit suicide.  It’s just not good enough.  This man does not get a free pass because he said sorry.  He plans to rebadge his ministry into a kinder-more-affirming bla bla bla.  You can find his apology video by googling it, I will not provide it, try keywords “Liar Closet-Case Hater Apology Video.”

Oh Miss Paula.  To be honest, when I heard that Paula Dean used the n-word, I thought it seemed about right.  When I heard her brother (his name is Bubba) used it in reference to our President, it seemed pretty stupid, but not out of the realm of believability.  But when I heard that Paula wanted black waiters to dress up like slaves at Bubba’s wedding and that she is unable to determine if jokes about Jewish people, rednecks, black folks offend people I thought that was even a bit much for her.  She also issued an apology video this week, probably more because she was worried people would stop buying her merchandise than due to any change in her butter-drenched heart.  Her contract is not being renewed at the Food Network and hopefully, she will slip quietly into history’s footnotes.  You can find the video using key words “Liar Racist Butter Apology Video.”

Tune in next week for Rachel Ray’s apology video when it is discovered that every time she said “yummo” and “E.V.O.O.” she whole-heartedly knew America’s soul incrementally died.
