OKAY- WHAT the HECK IS That? Dressing, making,

Published on Jul 29, 2017

Ugly is the new Beautiful! Yeah; remember, “Orange is New Black?” Well, it seems the latest craze is ugly, and unattractive is the latest fad, so much so, that people think it is beautiful or inspires beauty. It doesn’t.
In this online (and outside or real-life) American society, I’ve noticed women and girls are dressing and making themselves up to appear much more unattractive than they would be. From what I understand of what they say, this is to repel men, as they believe that ALL men are terrible beings, akin to and no better than wild (prey and pack or herd) animals. This idea of dressing ugly seems to be inspired by feminists of yore, but, these, “new feminists”, seem to be missing the whole point. We did not stand up for women in order to put down men. We did it to help ourselves and our families. There is no charm in the latest fad, kids.
All the while, today’s young women (and girls) appear to be impressed with and by ugly design. Ugly colors we thought dead and buried, back in the seventies, are back, and they are IN like Flynn! The uglier it is, the more popular it is, today.
This, in my estimation, is taking UGLY-DESIGN craze much too far. It is the craze of the crazies. This building a house influenced by this FAD of ugly-design is something I am sure these home owners will live to regret. Can you imagine someone, or anyone, wishing to purchase this monstrosity in a few years? It may be, “super-cool”, today, but all fads pass, crazes are passe in no time. Surface design will not stand the tide of time or scrutiny of the discerning eye (and mind.)
It is, at this moment, a thing to laugh at, as is all art a thing to consider; it is not a thing to build, permanently. In a way it reminds me of these whole-body and/or facial tattoos, which most people regret, within in a few years. But, like tattoos, removal is going to be a lot more difficult than is the original placement. The whole, “I’m in your face so look at me”, ideology is one most people grow out of… This house will not grow with them.
Of course, it’s not mine and would never be mine, even though I do consider myself an artist and I do accept many forms of art, even those outside of the norm. This; I do not consider this art, though I am sure the new-home owners do, and their architect (or architecture student/s) obviously does…
This home seems to be the perfect example of society’s ugly and how it’s been accepted (or how some people have been deluded into accepting it) by the up and coming generation.
Either way, the architect (or architecture class?) has made a killing off of this thing. He or she or they have been adding to the project for at least a few years. I expect they are being paid(?)

In case you have not yet heard, our old friend, Patrick, aka Snordster/Snordelhans (and you can tell how long I’ve listened to that golden throat by that admission..) has lost both his home and his studio in a housefire in S.Africa.  He is at the age in which he should have retired and would be rocking back, on the porch, spying gazelles and ibis, but, as he and his wife lost everything, all must change.

He needs us to help in this effort.  I know that most of us live month-to-month, or hand-to-mouth, but if you can even donate a small amount, every bit is beneficial and I know he appreciates it.  If you did not know, back in 1998, my kids and I also lost everything (except one-another), so we know how devastating fires can be.  I cannot even imagine having to restart at the age of 63, though.  Can you?

Please watch and SHARE this video and do whatever you can do.

You can make a PayPal donation to:  Snordster@gmail.com, country:  S. Africa.  The rest will be in the video description, in YouTube.  Even if you don’t know Snordster/Patrick, please help by sharing.  Thank you!

My Home Burned Down, Snordster.

Because, sometimes, one has to laugh!

Springtime in Austin is great-  if you remember to look around to see what there is to see.  Last weekend, I saw a LOT!

Enjoy!Barb & Biff’s Big Night in Austin

Barb & Biff’s Big Night in Austin

From, “redflagnews.com”, Hillary Clinton cancels ALL events in three critical states:

BREAKING: Hillary Cancels All Events In 3 CRITICAL Swing States… Media SILENT

  • Facebook
  • Twitter

The reopening of the FBI investigation in Hillary Clinton’s private officially sent her campaign into chaos.

Her campaign is looking to re-coup and re-organize.

And according to “Citizens for Trump” Special Projects Director Jack Posobiec, Hillary will be getting some more rest.

In a tweet, he simply said: “Hillary has cancelled all campaign events in FL, OH, and NC.”

The plan is to start working in states she’s lost serious ground in — like Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Virginia, and Michigan.

Hillary’s campaign is sounding the death knell.

There is no election November 8th, just the trial of Hillary Clinton.

And Americans are the jury — and the verdict will “guilty.”

Mavi Marmara leaving port.jpg

The Mavi Marmara set-sail in May of 2010, in an attempt to break the terrible siege of Gaza..(above)

There has been much talk, from the Clinton Camp and their repeaters within the MSM, now proven to work hand-in-hand with HRC & Co., ( *see, “Doesn’t Matter WHO Hacked Podesta…*:

Truth in Media, Ben Swann..)  Hillary R Clinton would like for the entire world to believe Russians did this, Putin hacked her, and that this means war!  Here’s what I know..;  Hillary Clinton was hacked, many times, going back as far as 2010.  Why would people (Americans, for sure, but Brits, too) wish to hack the then Secretary of State?  I know why.  She gave Bibi Netanyahu, PM of Israel, the go-ahead in regard to taking over and even shooting at civilians (including Americans, Brits, Turks, etc..) aboard this Gaza-bound ship.  She literally told Bibi it was okay, as far as OUR State Department was concerned, to shoot to kill Americans.  Hillary did not simply give tacit approval.  No, she approved the take-over, on the high seas, of the Mavi Marmara, by Israeli Defense (ha) Forces, by any and all means necessary.  He was told to use deadly force, if required, and this WAS posted online.  The US State Department, in front of international media, said so!  And, after IDF did attack the flotilla, OUR State Department and Hillary Clinton covered it up!

I think people fail to realize how important statements such as this can become and how the words might come back to haunt the speakers (and those speaking for them.)  I believe it was Jen Palmieri who actually put the words out there, in a press conference at the State Dept., which then made its way to the web, “online”, to be noticed by anyone who cares about this world.  And this was noted by many, including Americans.    When the ship closed in on Gaza, IDF did begin shooting at the civilians wishing to break this (by then 4 year long) siege of Gaza, and they ended up murdering nine Turks and one American of Turkish descent.  What did the State Department, under Hillary Clinton, say?  Not much.  The media ignored much of it.  But, we did not ignore this.  Almost immediately, videos of the event aboard the Mavi Marmara were posted (Democracy Now did a great job, in fact, as did others:)

Aside from the usual activists, along came the development of the “hactivists”, who certainly were upset by the attack.  They were not going to let this one slide.  The talk of hacking Hillary began soon after.

What else was happening within the coming year, in the Mid-East?  Hillary Clinton began what has been known as, “the Arab Spring”, a terribly dark time in the Mid-East (which has not yet ended.)  Why would the Obama White-house and Clinton State-Dept do such a thing?  It’s a lot easier to manage people war(s) when the war is (apparently) started by these very people of the target nation(s) against themselves, or their leaders.  What happened in Libya, Syria, and Egypt, would be some of the most bloody coups this world has known, at least in the time of recorded history.  I was familiar with activists and hacktivists, in the US, in Egypt, and in Syria, who did not fall for this being instigated by any Arabs.  In fact, if one really looked at it, all facts on the ground pointed to this being yet another American op (each and every country that’s been pushed into such action) via America’s CIA, which is a MOSSAD op.  Not everyone did fall for it being instigated by people dissatisfied with their leadership and not everyone did respond in the manner Clinton expected.  Some people honed their hacking skills and did hack Clinton, the White-house, and the State Department.  How do I know this?  These hacktivists posted PROOF of their hacking accomplishments on twitter!  Do I have this proof, today, of the hacking?  No, though we did have proof, back then. Friends I spoke with, at the time, are aware I was talking about HRC and White-house being hacked, because I had seen proof of same.  So, though I cannot post an image of the hacking, now, I think if one looks up the accounts of certain well-known hackers, they will see the {Anonymous and/or other similar) hacking logo, or Syrian flag, etc..,  atop the US Seal and.or stars-n-stripes.

We all knew this.  By, “we all”, I mean people who had already figured out, from reading books such as, “If Americans Knew” (Alison Weir), that we are consistantly lied to by the media, and have gone to sources for their news, since the attack (By Bibi and Hillary) on the Mavi Marmara.  Truly, it all goes back to this event. And the coups in all of the Mid-East have not gone unanswered.

Someone should clue-in our former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton (as if she didn’t know any of this.).  And, if you think they would care, alert the media.

Internet did not only kill Israeli P.R.  It’s killing, “our”, American MSM, too.

Touche!
