The fascination with tentacles isn’t exclusive to Japan. Recently, Daniel Struzyna put up tentacle tights he made with his own hands on his ETSY shop and now, he can’t keep up with the demand. Whether people want to become Ursula from The Little Mermaid at a cosplay convention or simply stand out from the crowd,…
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese Proverb All the mistakes you have made in your life, all the wrong paths you have taken and all the negative experiences you have been through need not affect your present or your future. It is […]
We have all by now toughed it out and watched Ava DuVernay’s outstanding Netflix hit series ‘When They See Us’. A story about 5 teenagers that were not only falsely accused for brutality beating and raping a female jogger in 1989, but punished with a jail sentence that put targets on their backs while in…
I published a list of 90s pop songs based on mental illness and depression earlier today. I thought of a few more so I decided to make a second list. Please enjoy.
Offspring, Self Esteem
This is a song about a man that stays in an emotionally abusive relationship with a woman because he has low self esteem. During the bridge of the song he screams “The more I suffer, “The more you suffer means the more you really care, right?” I have to admit that I’ve been in that head space.
Cypress Hill, Insane in the Membrane
I don’t speak Spanish but thanks to Cypress Hill I know the Spanish word for crazy. Insane in the Membrane is their most recognizable hit. Their insanity is probably drug induced but insanity is a problem regardless of it’s cause.
Mary J. Blige, Not Gon’ Cry
Mary J. Blige had a lot of problems in the 90s. I was debating on whether she belonged on this list or not because a broken heart is not quite the same as a mental problem. But I love Mary and it’s my list so I decided to add her. I wonder if Mary has ever met the guy from Offspring. Perhaps they would get along.
Garbage, I’m Only Happy When it Rains
I remember this band and this song but it was never one of my favorites. This is a little gift from You Tube suggestions. But it’s perfect for this list and now that I’m listening to it I like it. As the kids would say it’s a bop. For the most part I’m a happy go lucky girl but I can identify with the sentiment of this song. I personally enjoy a bit of internal drama. It’s fun. And I do love rain.
Way back when there was a band called Lords of the Underground. I only remembered one song of their so I decided to do a bit of research on their song lyrics. With a name like that I figured they were a little off and they made music expressing that. I hit the jackpot. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, “Psycho”. No one has a video with lyrics uploaded to YT.
Psychologist David Coleman caused controversy when he said on air that children should hit back in the playground. Here, he explains his logic What would you say if your son or daughter comes home, telling you that there is a kid in their class who regularly pushes them, pokes them or trips them in the […]
