Female boasting music is as ridiculous as male boasting music, whether it's milkshakes or bling.... Just dumb and childish.
Whether it was by choice or not wasn't the issue, the FACT is they've been out of the public eye for 17 years! Sinead O'Conner has also been relegated to obscurity for an act, that in hindsght... she was right to a great degree. The Catholic Church is incredibly corrupt, the sex scandals whether molesting kids or seducing young seminarians is.... very bad to put it mildly. Her timing though... as bad as that of The Chicks. Which makes your next statement even more important.At first I didn't understand your point as well (I don't think they chose to walk away from the public eye per se, if that was insinuated),
That is a needle I try to thead as a professor myself. It's ok if a student disagrees with me and I try to engage in dialogue. Unless they're factually incorrect, then I stand my ground. But if it is a social issue, no right answer, only general consensus, then let's talk.But yeah, my experience with many people from the left is similar - we actually have a professor who's very well known and gets quoted in newspapers and whatever.
And he likes to think of himself as the "new" Catholic, that is, he's progressive, stresses out the importance of tolerance, dialogue, democracy, open-mindness ... well, as long as you agree with him. If you - no, not even disagree - if you cast doubt on something or actually propose something he disapproves of, he totally flips... his... shit. My classmate actually suggested that luxurious lifestyle and having all needs met might not be really good for a person in a spiritual way and that luxury might not be all that beneficial for people in general... and he gone completely crazy, first sarcastically asking whether she would wish some kind of plague on us and then, monologing, through various logical leaps ended up in the place where he said she's obviously the type who would support some authoritative, despotic regime, like Putin or Franco or something. I was completely flabbergasted, to say the least.
I think I kinda miss the pre-post-modernistic meaning of "tolerance" - now it's supposed to be all "I don't think anything about anything and especially about you", but just now I'm reading a historian who's making fun of this (despite being very progressive himself) that in the late 19th century it still used to mean "I am actually very sure about what I think about this and that and you, but I can tolerate you and your different opinions and thoughts".
Considering how often people talk about/react to the weather, it really bothers me when TV shows don't address it. Like in Dexter or Jane the Virgin. They both take place in Miami and NOT ONE WORD about how fucking humid it is, clothes aren't clinging to people's bodies drench in sweat, hair always in place. Fuck that.I'm sweating and it's hot like hell here in bed.
I turn on the air conditioner.
I put the remote away.
The AC automatically shuts down because it's 03:30.
Here's some advice you never asked for: Use 1Password, LastPass etc. for username and password management if you'd like to create an overview for yourself. If not, another suggestion is if you'd use a concept or a ritual for them. For instance, I never have the same password anywhere and I still remember them. My passwords are all Moth3rfuck1n[insert service here].Really hate making new usernames & passwords for all kinds of services!!! I've made three new ones THIS WEEK! University instructions and web pages are complicated as hell, and the instructions were from 1990s or something. And today I had to make a new username to be able to log on a page to be able to cancel an email address I never even knew I had, but which I would have had to start paying 3 euros/month to keep. Damn it!
