A to B Sides
I like these words
And if you love me………Here’s what I’ll do
Oldie = goodie
🎬📺 = Young Pope
The B-Sides: Selfish?
CC always says that the stars don’t lie. It’s my firm belief that He doesn’t either. Religion is the rules, in the stars lie the possibilities.
Not too long ago and unfortunate incident happened after a really nice night. I was with a papa crab near and dear to my heart and parked badly. Like really badly. I guess we were excited. This resulted in my car not being there in the morning. And To make a long story short, a wild goose chase in trying to find it.
I was upset. Part of me knew I shouldn’t have been there that late. CC took it as a sign from God. But that was a (mostly) good thing.
Yes I shouldn’t have been there, but I was, and got to hear about the new venture he was a undertaking. And yes I was scared and upset but he helped me find the car and we went, picked it up and my heart calmed down a bit. Maybe the sign was things are never going to be easy, but you find a way.
What happened after that is I don’t know what. See, CC comes from a product of divorce, for reasons that are unimportant right now, but that I will always remember. It was a different set of signs that maybe, I don’t know, I just have to re-examine to get rid of my fears.
Is his venture successful? I don’t know. Why wouldn’t it be? He’s super smart, has a good heart, and works really hard. He’s going to be really good at it. All the signs say so.
Can’t help but wonder
If you have watched the Game of Thrones season 6 finale, were you blown away emotionally?
What amazing storytelling and suspense and emotion and love and hate and…forgiveness.
One of the things about this episode that grabbed me so fiercely was Light of the Seven. So different from the usual score, and so perfect that it was as crucial as the wildfire. Fire! Like literally.
If anyone doubts the power of music to tell a story, just don’t.
As one fan put it: “you know epic shit is going to happen when the episode starts with this music“

How can you tell a story you haven’t lived? Study it.
How can you tell a story you’ll never understand?
Let whitewashed Hollywood determine that.
CC is extremely disappointed in Matt Damon. And not only because she watched that ridiculous movie “The Informant” (under duress!! 🚑 ⇝👉💪), but also because of the subliminal he represents.
She thought he was one of the “cool’ ones. Capable of objectivity and enlightenment. He’s starring in a show, on CC’s beloved HBO designed to give a break to a new star. What would the problem be?
And then this happened.
In one sentence, 20 seconds or less, he explained white male privilege better than any guilt piece, protest statement, video, police ‘incident’, or murder ever could. Read that again. Because CC means it. Culture is and has always been defined and communicated through its entertainment. It’s media. From the third world to the first.
What else drive values, merchandise, “norms”, and prejudices as much?
CC would empathize, but wouldn’t have the audacity to pretend to accurately dictate the truth of a white man’s emotions. Or a gay man. Or a Syrian woman. They would tell it better and we would all benefit. CC is optimistic though. For the past 6 weeks, minorities have ruled the box office. Asians and Indians are featured in prominent prime time roles. Shonda’s still Shonda and will not be shaken, and maybe, just maybe people are waking up.
So how can you tell a story you’ll never understand?
Let someone tell it who does.
Or better yet, be an artist, and find a way to create our own!
