At Dawn, look to the East


I'm not sure if this shows the embedded video for everyone.

Gritty is your god now. Philly appreciation.

One nation, under Gritty, with hoagies and wooder for all.

Philly brought the US into the world and she's not going to let some orange Nazi take it away without a fight.

I'm proud of my hometown. Shit, I'd even high five Carson Wentz.

Philly is a good kid

The city has huge problems with racism and Trumpers who live there in addition to it's other problems, but it is overall a spectacular city filled to the brim with history, art, culture, and the world's best sports teams. I was born and raised there, though now I live 45 mins away, and I am always proud of my hometown.

One of my favorite scenes.

I love Jesus Christ Superstar. I looooove table-flipping Jesus.

Watch Joe tonight. Tell your friends.

NBC News is hosting a town hall with Joe Biden tonight at 8pm Eastern. I encourage everyone to watch it, play it in the background, stream it, etc., and give Joe a ratings boost. Encourage friends and family to do so. If you do the social media, tweet or post about it. Trump is going to stage his triumphant walk on water back to the Whitesupremacy House in order to pull coverage away from Joe's town hall tonight. He knows Joe is stronger, more resilient, and way the fuck ahead in the polls. Let's keep that from happening.

It'll be broadcast on NBC as well as streamed online. This article lists the various ways you can watch it:


My dad is losing his best friend in an hour

My dad's best friend will be taken off of life support in an hour. He had been hospitalized a month ago and was sent into a nursing home to recover. He contracted Covid and was sent back to the hospital and eventually on a vent. He is around 70 and has a host a health problems and it doesn't help that he was in one of the worst Philly hospitals.

My dad and this friend have played cards with one other friend every Wednesday night since the 70's, stopping only for Covid. My mom joked that my dad was so dedicated to Wednesday night cards that if she died on a Wednesday, he'd still go out to play cards. Well, my mom died this year on New Year's Day, which was a Wednesday. My dad played cards that night.

I'm worried about my dad. We just lost my mom. I have taken my kids over weekly for over a decade, but we stopped due to Covid. My dad is a Vietnam Vet who still holds into that trauma and doesn't realky express a lot of emotion.

Fuck Covid. Fuck Covid.

Can I get some prayers and good thoughts sent to my dad's friend, his family, and my dad plesse?

My voting experience today

For those who like anecdotal data....

I live in a Philly suburb. We're supposedly light blue in these parts, but I feel like I am constantly surrounded by Trumpers.

I voted a little before 11:00 am. Turn out was steady. It's rainy and chilly. I was about 50 years younger (I'm 40) than most voters with me. lol The lady handling the democrat info had more people speaking with her than the republican lady.

Y'all.....I was #254. 254. I have never, in 10 years voting in this location, been such a high number in a non-Presidential election. I usually vote a little later and I am normally just under 100 or somewhere in the 170 range for bigger elections. I pushed each button individually rather than hit the straight party button.

My husband votes this evening so I will be interested to see his number. It's funny watching the GOP poll person jump all over him. He is usually in something camo with an American flag, he has a beard, wears a camo ballcap. People assume he's something he's not based on his looks and clothes.


If I am choosing between NYCB and ABT then ABT is my #1. I do appreciate NYCB and their brand of ballet. I do have some fab dancers from there, such as former Principal dancer, Kathryn Morgan. But, NYCB tends to be a little too sharp for my taste sometimes. I am also not Balanchine's biggest fan by a long shot, for many reasons. On that note, I'm so tired of nearly every local version of the Nutcracker being the Balanchine version.

Thank you for the heart!

I've had a very rough few weeks so seeing that little heart really made my day.

This is new information

Thank you for your post. Until I read it, I had no idea there were ever any scientific accomplishments by white men. White men involved with Apollo you say? Wow! That information has been kept in the dark for decades. Thank you so much for bringing this to white....I mean light.
