Memories Of My Youth

There were so many good and wonderful cartoons when I was a kid. Truly funny and well-drawn cartoons, not like the cartoon shows of today. All of today's cartoons seem to be out of Japan. They are mostly poorly drawn, lousy stories and toilet humor. Remember the old cartoons? Scooby Doo, Tom & Jerry, Inspector Gadget, The Flintstones? These are just some of the many classic cartoons of my childhood. One of my favorite cartoons was a spin-off of the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon, She-ra Princess of Power. I loved that cartoon.

And now they are releasing both the He-Man series and the She-Ra series on dvd. I have gotten a couple through Netflix and would eventually like to own my own copies. But it has been really nice to see one of my favorite shows from when I was a kid again. It brings back so many memories. And the stories are still wonderful and funny just as I remembered. They don't make cartoon shows like this anymore. I truly think tv animation and true cartoon storytelling are lost arts.

Join The Boycott!

I recently saw that Ann Coulter, republican pundit and overall muckmongerer has a new book coming out in October. If any of you remember her last release, it was a book designed to insult and slam the widows of the 9/11 tradgedy. She called them harpies who were really glad their husbands had died because they got to be on television. And she said "How do we know the husbands weren't going to divorce them" in her book. She said the widows were making their fortunes on the back of the 9/11 disaster.

First off, isn't that what Ann Coulter has done? Hasn't she made her money and sold her books on the backs of those who died? And, unlike the widows of 9/11, she can't claim to even know anyone who died that day. Does that make it better to profit from that day, if you don't know anyone who perished? And, the 9/11 widows, unlike Ms. Coulter, were not making money off their husbands' deaths. They were demanding change and answers as to how 9/11 was allowed to happen. Totally different from Ann Coulter's profiteering if you ask me.

And now, she is once again back and ready to insult and ridicule people not based on facts, but based on hate and bigotry. Her next book will be called "If Democrats Had Brains They'd Be Republicans". I happen to be a Democrat and I am damn proud of it. I also happen to have a brain and a very good one. To be honest, after it was discovered that she plagiarized much of her last book and many of her facts were based on inaccurate research, I am truly surprised and dismayed that Random House would produce another of her so-called writings.

I am sick of people like Ann Coulter making money by trashing and hurting people, not with truth but with insults and racial slurs. Her column has recently been dropped by many newspapers because of her gay slurs against John Edwards, a man who is not only married and has been for a long time, but has several children too. Imagine if his kids read the slurs she writes? This woman is not afraid to lie. In fact, lies are all she knows and it is time to stop her.

It is for this reason that I am encouraging people to boycott her upcoming book release and any newspapers that still print her abusive column. The only way to make people like Ann Coulter shut up is to stop listening to what they have to say. Ann Coulter's last book was titled "Godless", but in the end, someone so filled with hate as Ann Coulter seems to be is truly the GODLESS one!

The Best Maker Of Book Trailers!

I am totally in love with a site called "Circle Of Seven". They make book trailers. I mentioned them in my previous post. I first found them through Christine Feehan's website. They do all the trailers for her books. But they do so much more. I have found more awesome books through checking out their trailers than I ever would have otherwise. Circle Of Seven is just a fantastic producer of book trailers.

The company is run by Sheila English Clover. And the trailers she makes are dynomite. These aren't just your ordinary trailers. They have special effects and everything. The trailers are mini-movies. The Circle Of Seven website has a section that displays all their current trailers. And you can go into their archives to check out their older work. I am just so in love with these guys. You should really check them out if you enjoy viewing book trailers. Click on their link in my list of great sites if you'd like to visit them. And if you get the chance, drop Sheila a line at her email. She is so helpful and nice. :-)
