By Request:, Female Anchor's and Guests' Upskirts

  During a fire alarm at work, I noticed a man trying to look up my dress.  I guess its just a hazard of being a girl:

Song Writing

  There has been an off and on debate on the originality of several established song writers recently.

  I was very excited about the first song I wrote.  But, by the time I got home on my bike I realized what I had done was write the Brian Wilson's/Gary Usher's song "409" with different lyrics.  ( and )  It was an important lesson.

  Its not unusual to start off writing parodies and "sounds a like" songs to learn the craft, but you can't mistake those efforts with a significant achievement.

  As you work on your craft (And, it is a craft; not magic that makes it work for you.), you begin to figure out not just music theory and poetry, but what appeals to others as it is "mass" communication. 

  Gradually, you'll begin to notice the work of other composers and players.  For example John Coltrane and Jimi Hendrix both blew their share of minds.  I remember listening to Dave Brubeck the first time.  Brubeck loved odd time signatures in both his original and re-arranged recordings.  One thing I learned is how a good song could be improved and that a good song can be changed in any number of ways without being ruined.

  At this point, composer should consider taking up a second or third instrument.  Not only will this make you more apt to gain work as a player, but it will force you to look at music differently.  If you don't want to learn a new instrument, perhaps buying instructional DVDs on other instruments, amps, and recording techniques would be good.

  Hopefully, at some point you learn to make things unique.  For example, McCartney and Harrison used to talk about adding "jazz chords" (9 chords; diminished chords) to convey additional emotion and add distinction to a song.  For example, 7 chords tend to imply movement in the Western mind so they can create a dynamic tension.  Two things the Beatles did a lot was mix common chord structures and change time signatures.

  At this stage in your development, it would also be good to investigate other art forms, the artists themselves, and the stories behind their works.

  To really be successful, the creative person must be able to go to that odd place where creative people work.  This realm of the mind is one of both extreme concentration and child like wonder where rules are suspended and brainstorming can run wild.

  When you combine your skills with your disciplined mind, you should find yourself having a level of songwriting craft that makes it look easy to others.  However, don't feel bad if you can't write "Help" in ten minutes, because someone said you need another song.  One practice technique is to write a song a day while in different frames of mind.

  At this point, song writers usually have enough skill to write in the style of other song writers or re-write the songs of others to the point where most can not tell.  (You know, take a sad song and make it better.)  Some of the clever song writers will take elements from different sources, such as a century's old poem and combine it with a traditional melody.

  To the causal listener, these types of songs sound original, but other musicians can usually figure out the influences even it it is in a different key or time signature.  Hopefully, you have a fellow musician with enough knowledge that they can determine if what you have is an original song or if other elements of the composition have to be changed or if the Producer can just mask the run of the mill tune with a wall of sound.

  "The Greats" typically make a leap to another level where even their peers are stunned by what they do next.  Revolver was quite brilliant and underrated, but Sgt Pepper was so stunning in composition, arrangement, sound, and appearance that it set things differently from that point forward.

  As you get older, the genius moments occur less often, because of the nature of the mind.  Competition for your time and attention is normal as you age.  Sadly, so is the decrease in faculties.  Later, the memory starts to fade.  (Hopefully, your Producer will remember that Randy Newman song if you don't.)  It doesn't help that the entertainment industry is fast paced and the world is high on content.

  Successful well known song writers have a pressure to deliver product that can frustrate and delude their work.

  New technology is a big driver in all types of innovation, so consider if each innovation is right for you.

  Another thing that I've found helpful for promoting creativity is getting a life coach to help me work through problems or to help push me into exploring other aspects of my personality.

  Here's Christina Aguilera working with her life coach:
  (I wish I could sing like this beautiful girl!)

  OK, for you a field trip to a national park might be more like it.  But, just like in a relationship, you will need to shake things up from time to time for you and, hopefully, your audience.

  Another thing, its OK to have fun:  Here's the Beatles:

  Later:    No, its not Abby Road.

  I can't find the one recorded in the Memphis Hotel.  I suspect they're really deep in the rum and Coke on that one.

Some Different Female Shave Fetish Shots.

I think this is such a cool look I got it, but not totally shaved:

I love watching blondes get head shaved.  She actually looks better bald:

Very compelling Face Off hair shaving vid.  Long hair and tons of product and makeup cost money and impact the environment per this group:

Hot TV Anchors

Something for you "info babe" fetishists.   I bet in less than five years, this will be common on US TV.

Years ago, a local anchor wore green leather.  As this was the first time anyone wore leather it got quite the reaction including some saying it wasn't professional.  Eventually, it all worked out for her, her leather, and her much younger boyfriend.

About as close as American TV gets now:

Cuckolding Web Sites to Check Out

Do you remember when I predicted cuckolding for five percent of the population?  Well, its not as public as I thought it would be and I'm one year late, but we're there.

Open letter mostly to the Transgendered

If you recall, I volunteer as a community organizer with in the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community.  I wrote this letter to an upset transgender (TG) person who essentially wants to know what do do about discrimination as she is tired of waiting to be equal:

When the Democrats had control of the entire government they failed to take the opportunity to guarantee TGs equal access to housing and prevent job discrimination.

These two inexpensive things would have allowed TGs to have better lives and to integrate with others thus showing they aren't that different after all. However, the Democrats aren't going to fall on their sword for three tens of a percent of the population which is basically broke.

Sadly, the GLBT movement is generally led by people with no feel for the political process. The best they seem to be able to do is try and copy the black movement, which suffered from different forms of prejudice, and, on occasion, quote Marxist philosophy which no one takes seriously anymore. In turn, political operatives use GLBTs for fund raising and action, but they have no intention of helping them. I call it the "long con." I have taken several runs at these people, but they live in their own world which is funded by donations by often poor TGs. (Last study I read said the disabled were the number one economically disadvantaged group, followed by TGs, and then gays...)

Most people are fixated on unemployment (It would have been better to help GLBTs in "good" times.), which is understandable, plus they do not see GLBTs as part of the American fabric. (In fact, most people think they don't know any TGs...part of why coming out is important.) The tools tried so far don't address these problems. In fact, I think the only think an outsider that has helped is Oprah who got regular folks talking.

One of the problems with the parades is the supposedly sympathetic media picks out the weirdest people to show on TV undermining the whole process. Though gays support TGs and bisexuals more than straights, it might not be as by as much as you might think. When you march in a gay pride parade, you're marching for gay rights; not TG rights. Often, viewers do not understand the difference anyway. When I brought up the problem with parades and how they should be re-focused or discontinued, I get told I don't understand its "part of the culture." Yeah, so are show tunes, but they haven't helped either.

The way the polls have moved, I think TGs (and bisexuals) would be better going it alone. To a certain extent, this has happened. I was surprised with how many well know singers have come out as bi in the last year.  (I've also been somewhat surprised by the non-reaction to Rhianna and Britney singing about leather sex and similar adverts.)

TGs can help themselves a lot by not being fixated on their situation and not being so narcissistic, because re-enforcing the stereotypes.

Sadly, things like this amount to slow and steady progress, though you have to be prepared to make your move if you see an opening.
