I loved the show 'Angel'. Most of the reason for that was because of this girl. They gave her such meaty story lines and we all watched her transform in front of our eyes.
She started as a bone skinny girl with the worst sense of entitlement ever. I hated her screen persona and her real life attitudes.
But then she had children in real life and she became a woman...a beautiful woman. Somehow in the Hollywood environment she let go of what wasn't important. That is when she earned my endless admiration.
Of all the pictures I have seen of her I think this one is my favorite. This is what true beauty looks like. This is the kind of image the image makers should be promoting to young girls.
The saddest part is that in study after study this is the kind of body type that the majority of men prefer.
Being a girl is just difficult. Some days I don't know how they do it.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
