Bill O’Reilly vs. Eminem

Here’s a quote from yahoo.com’s story about Bill O’Reilly’s outrage at Eminem’s song “We Made You” in which he says dirty (funny) things about Sarah Palin:

“Few Americans take the vile rapper Eminem seriously,” he said. “He represents the lowest form of entertainment in this country and is a publicity hound to boot.”

“Kids see it, not adults,” said O’Reilly, adding that “no one over 25 listens to him.”

So, when Bill says “he represents the lowest form of entertainment in this country” – is he referring to rap? Or mocking others? And isn’t Bill a publicity hound as well?

I think Bill O’Reilly is an ass. But I really think he should clarify that comment because it seems like barely-veiled racism. It seems like he’s saying rap is the lowest form of entertainment, and I find that ridiculous. And then he goes on to use Travis Tritt as a counter example…saying

If Travis Tritt made a derogatory reference about Hilary Clinton or Michelle Obama , O’Reilly argued, media outlets would “kill him.”

Nonsense. First of all, why Travis Tritt? What crazy red-neck crap has he ever said? None. I love Travis Tritt. Leave him out of your garbage, Bill. Is country music the opposite of rap? Is that how Bill worked that out in his little pea brain?

Um, it’s not. In fact, lots of rap and R&B artists sing songs written by country music artists and vice versa. And doesn’t Miley Cyrus have a little rap song out now? A country rap? Someone must like it, right?

There are no boundaries.

Seriously, can’t we all just get along?

Hello?! Or should I say Hulu!

How awesome is Hulu.com? I mean, seriously. It’s free. It’s all the shows I jump all over the internet to watch. I can watch everything on my Macbook – as opposed to some network sites (like TNT) that aren’t mac-compatible. I just finished watching Fringe and now I’m watching Heroes. Just a few commercials, but they’re mostly for good stuff – like Goodwill and world relief funds. Seriously – the face of TV is not TV for me anymore.

Thanks, Hulu! My brain is feeling mushier by the minute!

toddler sports and sewing

We’ve been a whirlwind of activity around here. From 3-year old sports classes every day, to a possible impending move, there’s hardly been time to sew! That’s not to say I haven’t been preparing to sew. Which means buying stuff – fabric and books! Here are my newest books…all of which I’m dying to dig into. There are at least 3 projects in all of them that I love.


The third book is a new Aranzi Aronzo book called Cute Stuff for Babies. There are the cutest little appliques in there. My favorite pattern is a bottle holder pouch in the shape of a little quilted bottle. Oh, and the little diaper covers with a bear and bunny face on the baby’s booty. Awesome.

I did finish a couple bow tucks bags. Well, I finished one and one is almost done.

And did I post this already? I’ve just been working on hand sewing all the bit down since I really haven’t had time to sew.
