The Miley Wrecking Ball


This is a guest post from The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome. Vol-E picked out the illustration because she don't like ugly!


Miley Cyrus has brought a wrecking ball to her reputation as an innocent and sweet girl.  She is now a sexy sensuous adult woman. No subtlety here. The media has made a fuss, which is what she had in mind.  Many have said that she was over-the-top promoting herself, but how else to quickly and quite sharply change the world's image of you?   To  her, I say, wow and well done.

Don't you wish that you could do the same?  Imagine that one morning, you get up and realize that your life has been the same for the last five years and worse, your life has now started to go in a direction that you do not want.  What to do? How to change it?  Can you get up one morning and decide to be different?  Can you get up and be a superhero from this day forth?  That is what Miley has done. She got up, changed her life and the world in one moment.  How full of envy and jealousy you must be.

So why don't you change?  You can see lots of chains holding you back. The chains have names like bills, children, friends and family.  They are all holding you in place.  The bills do not go away.  Of course they do, make a plan and pay them off...gone. Children, well that is tougher as they do require a home and love. You still need those for yourself so share with your children, but it does not have to be the home where you are now in your current neighborhood and state. Better yet, make a change and you will become a role model to your children on how one can live a life. Friends and family will either adapt to your change or stop speaking to you.  To be somewhat brutal, get some new ones if they stop speaking to you.  Anyway, once your current friends and family see the new you, they may like the new you so much better.  Your change will trigger changes in them.  The old you was probably helping to keep them chained in their place and they were not thanking you for it.

I make it sound so simple.  It is not, but there are always changes you can make.  Unlike Miley, it may take you many years to accomplish your change.  If it takes five years, then so be it.  You will still be here on earth in five years, so make changes and put yourself in a better place.

One more thing about Miley Cyrus's change: She chose to become a sexy sensuous adult woman.  Why that?  She could have changed from music to go on to become a medical doctor or to run for mayor with an eye towards becoming president.  Perhaps it is because of her sense of herself as a sexual adult woman.  She went into one of the more taboo places -- openly expressed female sexuality.  Maybe it is strong in her and she likes it and must live it.  I don't know, but I wonder how many women have this strong feeling and hide it away so as to appear chaste and demure while they are raging inside.  One only has to look at the popularity of the Fifty Shades of Gray books (I have not read them so I cannot say more) or all those nude selfies propagated on the internet to get a feeling that there is a strong and deep female sensual wave out there, bottled up.  Hmm, this has the makings of another post.

Miley is to be commended for shaking up her life, for shaking up our lives too, and for showing us how one may go about having an interesting and fulfilling life.  All this from a twenty-one year old.  Amazing.

A Subway Journey Home

by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome! ~ There is a ritual to theNew York City subway system. Once there, you lose your humanity.  You are transformed into a savage, brutal and selfish automaton.  Savage in that you push and shove other riders out of your way to get into the subway car.  Brutal in that you never excuse yourself for any atrocities that you commit to get in the subway car.  Selfish in that you never give up your seat to anyone, no matter how crippled or old or pregnant they are.  Automaton in that you never look at any one else as a human being.

Now there are certain strategies that you can employ to be a successful subway rider.  You can stand by the door and obstruct the way just to be selfish and ornery.  That strategy is designed to increase your standing with your fellow passengers by impressing them with how vicious you can be pushing back at people trying to push into the car.  Whenever I see this strategy employed, I immediately piggy back on it.  I move …

Im gonna git u Sukkah

by The Urban Blabbermouth [who may or may not be shown in the photo above... - v-E] ~ True story. I am walking to my car and I notice a couple of Jewish fellows, twenty somethings, with the bouquets of what looks like bamboo or palm. I know they are Jewish for they look Hasidic. They are wearing long black jackets, wide brim black fedora hats, and have curly sideburns. In truth, I classify all Jewish who dress like this as Hasidic although they may identify themselves differently. They are standing near the corner canvassing passersby.

Encyclopedia Brown Bear

by The Urban Blabbermouth
At an age when other children decide to set up lemonade stands, Baby Bear decided to start a detective agency. His decision resulted from his experience in the Goldilocks home invasion. If you don't know this well-publicized crime case, Google Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Baby Bear wanted to become a policeman to help the other denizens of the Forest with their troubles and to maintain justice for all. Alas, the police did not accept children as applicants.

Baby Bear ran to his community library and borrowed the renowned guide, The Hardy Boys' Detective Handbook. Baby Bear spent the next twenty days, the library's lending period, studying the text. He chose the business name of "Encyclopedia Brown Bear Detective Agency" after his hero, Leroy "Encyclopedia” Brown. Baby Bear's dad hung the business sign across the garage door and opened a folding card table and four chairs in the entrance below.

On the first day, the Big Bad Wolf…
