for the record, I called Taylor Swift a "pop singer" only after googling "is taylor swift a pop singer?" because I didn't want to get it wrong and incur the wrath of the Swifties

You weren’t wrong to check. She started her career as a country singer which all MAGA types assumed she was their gal.

google's official answer is "Her debut album Taylor Swift was a country hit. Then she released her 2nd album Fearless, a country-pop. And then her album Speak Now, was also a version of country-pop with Rock. That is how she is now a famous pop singer."

I wouldn't have known any of that if I hadn't looked it up.

You know there's specifically a fandom for being a Swiftie Over Fifty? It's not too late. :p

Expand full comment

Did not, but I am in it...I am 86 and call myself an OLD SWIFTIE, but I have always been a die-hard fan of hers. She is brilliant in so many ways, and talented beyond belief, and I am just happy to stay alive until to vote AGAIN for JOE and ALLL DEMS to save us from the orange hitler wannabee. If she helps to encourage vote registration is a BEAUTIFUL THING and will support her forever.

75 here. I always liked her but didn't really listen often. Once she started encouraging people to vote I found out she's an amazing person. Now, since the eras tour, I've learned more about her and all the generous charity she does. If I could vote for Joe twice I would!!

When Kesha was blacklisted by Sony, for filing charges against her producer for raping her, her contract kept her from working. Taylor anonymously sent her a very large amount of money to help her survive. Taylor's mother let it slip, or we would never have known.

Good for us, Louise...I don't listen to her songs but have heard enough to know she is SUPER TALENTED, so we'll appreciate her when we VOTE AGAIN for Joe! He's been a keeper since he stood with BARACK!

At 70, I have recently become one. Now, I always found her music perfectly pleasant, but, being semi-deaf, had missed most of the lyrics. When she hit the headlines over politics, I FINALLY looked up her lyrics, and fell hard into Swifty-dom!

If you haven’t already seen it, look up the music video on YouTube of her song “Shake It Off” It is just so cute & self effacing. There’s even separate vids of the making of the video & she makes fun of herself

In 1964, the American music duo Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel released a song titled The Sound of Silence. Garfunkel, one half of the duo and co-writer of the famous song, summed up the meaning of this song by stating, “this is a song about the inability of people to communicate with each other”

💔 Gosh... I'm so very sorry about your Mom as well... Hopefully you're able to walk that journey with her...

Expand full comment

Sadly, I am not. I was ostracized by my family shortly after I got sober over 30 years ago. I was the first child that my mother had forgotten. That goes back further though. It didn't matter that I was trying to get better and change my life. I made my amends and they were accepted by all, but they snatched them back as soon as I turned around. I have accepted that. And I probably won't know when my mother passes. It's unfortunate, but I have did all that I am willing to do at this point.

I don't even know them anymore. My brother just died three weeks ago and I found out a week afterwards from a family member that lives out of state. My immediate family lives on the other side of town. My hands are clean and there is nothing I can do about their resentments however valid or invalid they are.

Expand full comment

Again, I am so very sorry... I can't begin to imagine all you have been through. Knowing that you're at peace with the situation is a blessing in itself. Just keep moving forward and know it's their loss. Be well.

Expand full comment

Having been sober now 23 years and counting I was not complete ostracized by my immediate family. But, the family I had married into( over 40 years ago) do not “trust” the newer me because I am not MAGA scum. These folks have their own issues and I can’t/ don’t even bother having a lucid conversation with them. The new version of me makes me some sort of “threat” to their political views. They just fail to realize I was ALWAYS a Dem …..I just smile, laugh to myself and try, which at times is extremely difficult, to keep my exposure to these people to a minimum.

Expand full comment

How sad for you. What a shame that your family wants to engage in petty feuds. It sounds to me as though you took the high road. The loss is theirs.

I agree with you Donna. My own mother had dementia and when she was in the nursing home, I was around plenty of people with the same condition. Fugly orange definitely has it.

Is Pravda(Truth)still alive in Russia?

Expand full comment

Sort of -- I don't remember details any more, but at some point after the USSR broke up, a couple of other organizations acquired it (or just started using it, maybe) -- I think one was a Russian Communist organization, and the other wasn't even Russian. Now Pravda's back in business (at least online) as Pravda.ru -- and when I checked on that to be sure it was still there, the FIRST pravda url that came up used the Ukraine top-level domain, .ua. So Pravda is apparently also a pseudo-Ukrainian publication now, too. Very highly truthful still, also. lol

I canceled about 18 months ago. So glad to have that constant stream of B.S. gone. If they publish anything out of the ordinary, I’m sure I’ll hear about it. Other than that unlikely possibility, I don’t feel like I’m being treated as a “mark” every time I renewed a subscription.

Welcome to the club. I canceled in early 2017, upset about Butter Emails, and the incredible idiocy of Maureen Dowd and Pope Ross Douthat, among others. (I miss Krugman, but not enough to help support the rest of them.) I have not regretted canceling as it seems things just keep getting worse there - at least on the editorial pages. It would appear they are in the tank for Republicans and Trump. I wonder if they understand they will be among the first people Trump and his christofascists put up against the wall. Apparently they think they will be the first people Trump has ever been loyal to in his long life. They should chat a little with some of the January 6 criminals now in prison instead of poorly educated Trump cultists in diners. Trump will not be a good little dementia patient like Reagan and let the oligarch's people run things for their benefit. The don't seem to understand that Trump is a genuine criminal who will have people who haven't properly admired him killed. Dead.

Expand full comment

Yeah this is not Hunter S. Thompson's generation of journalism. I'm actually a little surprised I haven't heard of Rachel Maddow grabbing the camera in both hands and going "Dear fellow journalists, if you help him win, he's still going to harass or kill you the moment you do anything but endlessly praise him."

Maybe they'd listen to her. More likely they'd label her deep state and assume she was trying to scare them away to increase her viewership.

Because our media no longer cares about truth or safety or rights. They think we're safe forever and all they need is the clicks and the cash.

You'd think an industry defined entitely by words and images would by association have at least a basic familiarity with history, dictators, and the press's role in dictatorships.

I’ll say it: Trump’s NATO comment borders on treason. But that is Trump jacking his jaw.
