Because while her contemporaries like Beiber are brats who abuse the privileges they have been given, she is humble, grateful, graceful and generous. In the shallow world of celebrity she is a rare example. I wish I could find the video clip of her saying the following because I understand it brought tears to all who heard it:
Selena: I always try to tell my fans that i can never truly explain to them how grateful i am for them. I can’t really understand the fact that i can just go on a stage for an hour and sign as many autographs as i can and they’re okay with that, and they wait 10 hours, fly from different counties and wait all day and me just doing that is good enough. I don’t feel like that’s enough, they’re amazing.
When you buy Selena’s Dream Out Loud “Trick or Treat for UNICEF” tee from September 15th to October 31st, 2010 K-Mart will donate 100% of the net proceeds to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. Opps, another example for those who thought they would zing me one about how terrible she is. Suck it haters.
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.
