Daily Tune-Up: Have Your Learned Your Lesson Yet?

Monday, February 23

For the last two days I’ve been explaining the role difficult people play in your life. Here is one more point that is perhaps the greatest incentive to own up to your reactions: The Light will continue sending you the same challenges until you’ve learned your lesson.

The sooner you accept these situations, and get to the root of what they’re about, the sooner the Light will stop sending you them.

Tonight, before falling asleep, think about your interactions today and how they made you feel. Understand that the discomfort was the universe helping you learn your lesson. And know that the universe will continue to give you that pain until you can look at it and accept that it’s about your growth, not the other person or situation.

Traffic Update: Panties & Prophets

I just knew today was going to be a rough commute!panties jesus1

Honolulu: 8 boxes of Gap panties fell off a delivery truck and were all over the highway.  What’s the big deal; can we say “I completed all my regift shopping early this year”?

Orlando: Jesus statues are blocking an intersection and causing all kinds of fuss for commuters.  Honestly, the last thing I need when I don’t use my blinker, slow-n-roll, and violate someone else’s right of way is Ceramic Jesus there watching me. 

All that makes me think that I’m just going to call out tomorrow and play hookie!

Another Alabama Shout Out!!!

I’d always thought Alabama was a pretty flat place but A&E found some mountains of which I was unaware.  Check out the highs and lows of Marshall County, AL as well as some of other gems from the cradle of the confederacy.

Shifty Binzer Blazes Up @ Pasadena Recovery Ctr

This is not the type of cameo performance you really want to have, but in the most recent episode of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew a reappearance of Seth ‘Shifty’ Binzer goes up in smoke.  If you’ve ever wanted to see someone smoke some rocks, act a fool on that other thang, or blaze up on the roof of a rehab center then you don’t want to miss th episode that airs Dec 4 ’08. 

As available the video below will be updated:

What they don’t show is the other cast members building a human ladder that ascends to the roof to keep the party going.  I think that’s next week’s episode – like for real!

Arab Money – Controversy

Bismillah Ulrahman Ulrahim Alhamdullillah rab Ulalamen

No, I didn’t have a BF on my keyboard, those are the Quranic lyrics used in Busta Rhyme’s newest hit Arab Money.  For an Arab and a Muslim it’s prohibited to sing or cite a Quranic verse in combination with music and most Muslims will find this disrespectful. 

Learn the Dance > See that Busta looks like he’s been enjoying the good life > Ask yourself if he also resembles Tracy Jordan just a bit….?
 

I thought the track was borderline offensive the first time I heard it but sometimes a good remix will just make you straddle your moral fence.

Operation Fabulous – “It’s Not A Spinoff!”

“You’ll never see us boring.” – Jay Manuel

operation

After supporting 11 seasons of ANTM, Mr. and Miss J land their own blend of extreme makeover and project runway – Operation Fabulous.  They want you to know that ‘it’s not a spinoff’ and that they intend to do for plain Jane what ‘Queer Eye’ did for the straight guy. 

Details about the debut are forthcoming!

No More Downward Dog For Devout Muslims

42-17779064According to Malaysia’s top Islamic council, Yoga can corrupt devout Muslims.  “It is inappropriate. It can destroy the faith of a Muslim,” Council chairman Abdul Shukor Husin told reporters.

Equally odd, they also placed a ban on tomboys about a month ago. 

Really? –  Really!

Merry-Uh-Er-Christmas (pt.2)

Related to the initial posting Merry, Uh, Er, Christmas?, it’s been discovered that if the AFA’s efforts are overwhelmingly successful then they are going to roll out a similar initiative involving holiday toys for kids.  Check out their concept of Reindeer Games:

Will Izzie Be The Next One To Leave Grey’s Anatomy?

thereyoullbe0ki3

Is Izzie Stevens on the way out of Seattle Grace?  I think she may be, and wouldn’t that be a real shocker and way to capitalize on an already dramatic season of cast members coming and going?  The last few weeks she’s been seeing, conversing among, and grasping at the embodiment of her beau Denny (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).  In this week’s episode it looks like she’s going to take things to a ‘whole nutha level’ with some Ghastly Freakie-Deekieness. 

Is it too much of a stretch to forecast that Izzie is going to be found out for her delusions, receive a psych eval, and gracefully dip out of Seattle Grace all together?  Has Katherine Heigl grown to such notoriety that she can proceed without her Grey’s Anatomy umbrella? 

Related HG: Janina Gavankar is leaving the show after a dismal peek-a-boo performance as an intern.  If you blinked or were too ambitious with your TiVo then you probably missed her. 

Thoughts…?   Alternative Theories…?  Share!

Prop 8 – Not So Easily Said By Ashton; Valid Nonetheless

Ashton stumbles over his words a bit, but joins in a discussion about the spiritual and political parameters involved with Prop 8.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

If given a platform to vent…    I’d identify that if given the opportunity, the bulk population of American Christians would vote with the same spitefullness against recognizing the Mormon Church as really being a Christian religion as they presumably would to pass Prop 8. 

So, why the battle cry from the LDS??? 

If you’re a member of the LDS, how would you feel if a political decision denied the validity of something that you’re passionate about?  Just a thought…

Ecstasy Used To Treat PTSD

A recent study is crediting MDMA with the ability for people suffering from PTSD to overcome their internal strongholds.  I really like how the pod below doesn’t focus solely upon PTSD that is connected with service in the military because this is a condition that affects others too. 

Vodpod videos no longer available.

** I would be so pissed if they gave me a placebo for participating in this study that I’d likely cause PTSD to someone else!! LOL! **

Dare I think that one day both weed and ecstasy would actually be medically prescribed in the United States….  I don’t know, maybe that will be something I can tell my kids to look for after I’m gone.
