Yep – Fuck 2016

15 Nov

Groundbreaking journalist Gwen Ifill lost her battle with cancer. May she rest in peace. Let’s add her to the list of those we’ve lost this year. The American people elected a piece-of-shit President. Congratulations white people, you did it! Close friends of the family are battling serious illnesses. I wish them well. And yeah I still miss Prince.

Here’s to hope for the better in 2017. Perhaps Trump will get impeached? Cross your fingers folks.

Check out this hilariously honest clip from this week’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

And if you haven’t watched the episode in its entirety, you can check it out here.

PS

Issa Rae’s HBO show Insecure has been renewed for a second season; so that’s a bright spot. Find joy where you can.

Purple Reign Forever

I’m a huge Prince fan and I’m truly saddened by his loss. He was a phenomenal music icon with unparalleled talent. Although I didn’t know him personally (of course), he appeared to have a kind heart and an awesome sense of humor. Who can ask for anything more?  I’m thankful that I had the opportunity to see him perform live in DC a few years back. It was an awesome performance.

I vividly remember (and I don’t remember much) being in my bedroom at my parents house, listening to the song “Purple Rain” over and over and over again. I listened to it so much I scratched the CD. And my first email address was named after one of my favorite Prince songs “Adore.”

I can’t believe he’s gone, but all lives come to an end.

Thank you Prince for sharing your extraordinary gift and spirit with us!
