This is Blogababble!!!! This week I’m going to try something new, I’m going to do single topic entries. The topics will range from what I can write about, whether it be a television show or a video game or a topic that affects us all. This week I’ll be talking about ‘HEALTH’ & spread some opinions on this topic. First, I should get to some ‘Current Affairs’ since a lot of shit has happened this week that I want to talk about.
Je Suis Messed Up!!!
From the headline, you can already tell I’m going to talk about this ‘Charlie Hebdo’ tragedy. As someone who draws (crappy) comics, short stories & against racism, I see two sides to the Charlie Hebdo tragedy. I’m not saying that the guys shouldn’t have drawn what they did, I support the artists’ right to the first amendment (Even though this took place in France where amendments are part of the American Constitution), but at the same time I see where the #JeNeSuisCharlie people are getting at. In France there’s the stigmatism of Muslims & Arabs in both media & mainstream news (Just like America) & I can see why they don’t support #JeSuisCharlie & they don‘t support what these terrorists have done. I stand behind the 1st amendment right as an artist & I stand behind the battle against racism & stereotypes as a human being. Everyone should be entitled to their opinion. Here’s my opinion on all this, These asshat terrorists are pussies that they couldn’t take a hint in a fucking cartoon so they decided to shoot a bunch of people who did nothing but draw a picture. A fucking picture caused someone to commit murder. Yeah, it was a picture in bad taste, but there were other ways to handle this that didn’t have to involve killing. If you don’t like a product someone is selling, then don’t spend money on it!!! I’m not part of #JeSuiCharlie, nor am I part of #JeSuisMuslim, I’m part of the #JeSuisDrawwhateverthefuckyouwant&don’tbitchtomewhenyoudon’tlikewhatyousee. Also, not all Muslims are terrorists, I hate to repeat myself but get it into your thick ass head you motherfuckers, not all Muslims are terrorists.
You know what else is news that everyone isn’t making a big deal about? Cuba has re-established relations with the U.S. Guys, this is history in the fucking making. For several decades Cuba has been cut off from the world, they were in the side lines of the Cold War with Castro, these guys still think it’s 1966, still driving old shabby Chevy Bel Airs’ & these guys are now getting WiFi in their country. We have to be paying attention to this because this could be the start of a long fulfilling relationship or a fucked up mess. I don’t know, we’ll see!!
And what else made news, some asshat supremacist tried to blow up the NNACP offices in Colorado. Oh, and they released a sketch & it’s such a half assed sketch, you could tell that the artist was like “Yeah, them darkies want a sketch, just half ass it so they can stop bitching.” Yet this isn’t being covered in mainstream news, I sense conspiracy theories here. It’s 2015 & yet people are still pissed off that there are people who aren’t white? Jezus fucking christ, this is why aliens don’t want to visit anymore!!!
And now, our feature presentation, HEALTH!
Doesn’t matter who you are, doesn’t matter what species you are or if you’re a metaphysical being, our health is important & for some reason it seems like everyone is all up in everyone’s business with Health. Oh my god, last year I had to drop someone from the friends list on ‘Facebook’ because she lost 10 pounds & the whole feed was this chick talking like she’s the newest fitness guru by talking shit on people’s profile pictures & offering ‘Weight Loss Tips’ like she lost 200 pounds. It was annoying, just like the ads for ‘healthy’ foods & diet pills as well as the Paid Programs that fill hours of timeslots. Seems like everyone (in America, I can’t speak for other countries in this specific case) seem nosy when it comes to weight. I understand if someone has a friend who had an obese heart attack & their eating habits have to be monitored so they can avoid that obese heart attack again, but I don’t get the people that have to mandate what to eat & what not to eat towards everyone. By this I mean back when I was in middle school I loved cafeteria school food, this was when schools actually had money to feed kids nice looking & good tasting food (This is pre-Michelle Obama mind you) & I loved that squared pizza. Out of nowhere some punkass, curly haired, halftoid looking motherfucker comes up to me & goes “You like eating that?” with a cringing look.
“Cheese & peperoni & Marinara sauce” & then he gives me this look, like I was eating shit off the floor. It’s my lunch ticket, I’ll use it to get whatever the fuck I want. Then when I got to high school the food was crap & went to school with a grumbling tummy because high school food was becoming shit (THANKS A LOT OBAMA, SPECIFICALLY MICHELLE OBAMA & HER CRAP CAMPAIGN!). People need to keep to themselves, especially these fitness guru wannabes who dictate useless advice to people they don’t know. It’s none of your business, it’s none of my business, no one’s business, that is unless they had an obese heart attack & have to watch what they eat, but that job is for friends/ family. Are we as a society that vain that there are people that bitch when others are using their right to choose what they like? Seriously, everyone’s so conscious about other people’s weights, but at the same time we’re not. What I mean by that is everyone acts like they care for you, but what we (The Public) forget is that they don’t. For example, diet books. You’ll see them on display at Pharmacies near the magazine shelves & the covers have the word ‘HEALTH’ or ‘HEALTHY’ or even ‘DIET’ & ‘WEIGHT LOSS’ with a picture of a doctor who used to be fat, but now they look ugly. If you didn’t already know, all of those doctors are just cashing in on the weight loss market, they want your weight problems to pay off their mansion or cruise. Same goes with the crap that airs on daytime television with that one ugly old dude with the hospital gowns, Dr.OZ. More like, Dr. Prision Rape because his name reminds me of the HBO prison show. Why’s he on Televison? To swindle all you stupid people into buying his books (Same goes to Dr.Phil, but I’ll see if I can talk about him later on). Same goes to that other show, ‘The Doctors’ or as I love to call it ‘ Multi-Racial Swoop Gang: Including the white guy’ which is a panel of ‘Doctors’ that talk about health issues & made a huge ass hubub about Ebola last year. That show is nothing but a scare, beware of the nail clippers, don’t use cotton swabs or else your ear will be violated. As I said before, these mother fuckers care about the money from the ratings, if they were informative then they‘d be listed under a public service. America’s fatness is a person’s profitable market!!!
Gluten free, I’m sure all of you have heard that word or seen it. Gluten-Free, that’s English for You payed an extra 2dollars for words on a package! I don’t get why all of a sudden advertisers are making a big deal out of Gluten. here’s the definition…..from Wikipedia. I don’t know if they’re right, I’m too lazy to double check. ‘Gluten (from Latin gluten, "glue") is a protein composite found in wheat and related grains, including barley and rye. Gluten gives elasticity to dough, helping it rise and keep its shape and often gives the final product a chewy texture.’ All in all, Gluten makes bread feel & taste good, yet the general consensus thinks gluten is some preservative that makes your dong explode or something.
I admit, I’m not at all well versed in these names & terms for stuff that goes into processed food, but then again, who is? Stupid people get their health info from Mainstream News & that is an animal farm of misinformation. These are the same people that would report on how Coffee is linked to Cancer, one week later there’s a new report in which coffee is linked to stopping cancer. At this point, we all know the scientists aren’t the blame but the people that deliver the news. Hey, studies show cheetoes are junk food, the sky is blue & fire baaaaddd!!!
Everyone says everyone should be healthy, everyone should eat, cook, shop & breathe healthy yet here’s a constant issue that half of the country faces & I call this ‘Health Gerrymandering’. Notice how all the rich/ upper class neighborhoods (I’m looking at your direction, Palos Verdes/ Rolling Hills California) have the healthier supermarkets like ‘Whole Foods & Trader Joes’ where the food is much more pricey but it’s all ‘healthy’ food. On the other side of the spectrum you have poorer neighborhoods that are flooded with fast food restaurants (Most commonly Mc.Donalds). See the difference? Not only is healthier food restricted to the people that work white collar jobs & live in the prestigious estates, but the prices of food also factor into the issue. Of course the poor people are going to pay a few bucks for an Xtra large hamburger with everything because they can’t afford the 8dollar salad!! I shit you not, in colleges everywhere (especially ones with restaurants) sell their healthier alternatives for way too fucking much. It’s bullshit, the elected leaders want everyone to eat healthier so they ban trans-fats, but they end up creating a Trans Fat prohibition with hidden trans-fat speak easies. They tax soda but it’s still cheaper than buying bottled water that looks like something out of a cheap Vaporwave aesthetic picture from Tumblr. Hey, all you rich chicken shit motherfuckers in charge, make healthier food cheaper & make fast food expensive instead of banning shit & taxing people up the ass!! It’s such a stupid republican thing to do, pretty much blaming poor people for stopping their hunger by buying fast food, though at the long run they’ve become fatter. I’ll retract, sometimes they won’t become fatter yet they’re still called ‘Unhealthy’ because you live in a poor people town where half of the population is fat & for some reason health journals consider fatness as being unhealthy. The system is stupid & they still think they’re doing the right thing by bombarding everyone with that ‘eating healthy’ propaganda bullshit that I’m still seeing today. It’s pathetic, like a person telling everyone to stop eating food altogether, but we need food to prevent ourselves from becoming cannibals & dying.
Okay okay okay, I exaggerated, but we all eat to survive, unless you’re a hoarder & eat whatever you please just to satisfy a personal emptiness. This leads me to another factor that should play in health, Mental Health. This is very important, yet everyone’s so bitchy about a person’s waist size, especially women, they’re the biggest victim of image & that doesn’t go over well with feelings or state of mind. You can’t be healthy if you’re not comfortable being who you are or happy with yourself. I’m all for people who feel happy after working out at some gym or people who are happy being the way they are without pressuring themselves to look a certain way. The happier someone is, the healthier they are. Sadly, we live in such a negative & cynical world that everyone looses sight on the lighter things in life. People, depression isn’t a joke, it’s a real sickness & that shit is no stroll on a park. Psychiatrists, I don’t get why they’re expensive. Why are they expensive? I know they have studied & spent endless amounts of cash just to listen & come up with a diagnosis or revisit a childhood trauma, but a person’s mental issues shouldn’t be a business where only rich people & stupid suburban kids are the clientele!! I’m going to continue sticking up for the poor people here, poor people can have mental issues too. Oh but who cares about the poor people, we’ll just send them to prison or shoot them when they go postal. Oh, a high upper class asshole shot up a school of kids, better send him to the mental ward, he’s got a mental deficiency. This is how the country treats mental health. I’m sick of all this Psychiatrist based programming like ‘Dr.Phil’ or that bull Crap ‘Bill whatshisname’, just like that Dr.OZ they’re just doing it for the fucking paycheck. Phil Mc.Graw (Yeah, that’s his real name, how country, much ‘murica, very cowboy) is fucking hilarious, that show he does is hilarious, it’s like ‘Maury’ but with upperclass people. All in all, I believe everyone should have someone who can solve their problems & sadly school isn’t the place anymore. I understand that the problems of all teens (Especially teens) can become a handful, especially the overly emotional ones that make huge drama out of useless shit. As I was saying, I’m not sure whether all high schools still have this now but the Counselor’s Center, it is what the name says it does, Counseling. I have my issues with the counselor’s center & all those people from my high school, they didn’t do any counseling! All these jack holes did was talk to kids about their grades & change their classes, they should have called it the ’Letters that mean a lot CENTER’. It’s like if I owned a pizza restaurant, but only sold copies of ‘Fallout 3’, it doesn’t make any sense!! Teens have got it hard, they got studies to worry about along with grades, incoherent teachers (For every awesome teacher, there’s always that teacher that doesn’t make sense & ends up failing everyone), home (though that depends on the person) as well as bullying (also depends on the person), as well as their job (if they have a job) & the constant pressure from the parents/ guardians to do better & the expectations are so high that you think their parents are robots. I forgot to mention relationships, but that also depends on the person. So as you can see, teen hood isn’t some CW drama where everyone’s happy & everyone has sex with everyone on Friday night & get all A’s because intelligence is some mystical force everyone has. So you’d think there would be a big push for things such as a Counseling programs where people talk & get some advice for any problem they‘ve come across. Also, teens are the big demographic for suicide everywhere, most notably South Korea, Japan, any country where school hours are longer & kids have little time for lesiure. There was an article I read in which a British (or was it Irish? I forget), anyway a high school was mourning the loss of a student who killed himself & what does the school do instead of providing a little forum about this tragedy. These school people decided to put on a stand up comedy show using some D-list comedian to ‘Entertain’ these teens. Anyone see the problem behind this? They pretty much used that as a distraction, a distraction that will not last for long. I know, younger generations are becoming stupider (Especially my generation, the LOL WTF BAE generation) but I see this as older people going “They gotta deal with their own problems on their own time on their own.” bullshit that the older generations are saying. I understand the whole ‘not crying over spilled milk’ analogy where we should deal with problems like grown ass adults, but they never teach you how to deal with the problems that no one can handle on their own & that’s the problem with younger people & their methods of dealing with serious problems that affect their mental health. It’s pretty sad & all this constant bickering over how to spend district funds won’t help anyone reach high grades. I also have issues over that whole Macho-man ‘We no need no therapy cuz we hombres’ bullshit, but I’ll save it for the an entry.
I’m just sick & tired of everyone giving mental health a seat in the back of the bus while everyone bitches about a person’s gut. People need to get their priorities in check & quit listening to all that false bullshit that Mainstream news & people like Dr.Phil or Oz say because no one’s health should not be tampered with. Also I don’t get that whole “Don’t eat after 8pm” bullshit. If my stomach is gurgling & it’s 9pm, I’m going to eat something because have any of you every tried to sleep with an empty stomach? It’s like trying to sleep in a bed of nails. Also, I don’t get a person’s weight in the world, in America there seems to be the floating ideal of ‘Thinner is better’, but the percentage of fatness in this country is huge. In some parts of other countries someone’s fatness is like a status symbol, especially for women. There’s a part of India where fat ladies are worshipped, then there’s also the thinness variation of that in Japan. It’s weird, one part of the country is trying to loose weight while the other is trying to gain it, then there’s the countries with the food shortage & they don’t have a voice in this battle & it’s sad.
I believe I’ve covered the spectrum of health, up until I just started ranting about teen mental health & how the stupid older generation just passes it off as ‘ANGST.’ Anyhow, at the end of the day all of this is mental, physical health is the one thing everyone goes ga-ga over, yet forget that a person’s state of mind is actually what really matters. You can be the athletic, most perfect specimen that makes ‘Doc Savage’ have an inferiority complex, yet be the most depressed & disturbed person in the whole galaxy & that also affects the way you act. So here’s my advice to you, if you feel good working out then work out & if you feel comfortable the way you are then don’t change a thing. If you’re that type of person that dictates what someone should or should not be eating, then go to hell. You’re not eating that food, then why pick on them? Unless you’re someone trying to keep a friend or family member from getting an obese heart attack. Also, people need to be positive or at least not let their negativity get the best of them (and I blame the government for most of the negativity).
I got to go on a tangent, what is it with media & the sheer bleakness of it all. Reality Television is nothing but crying & overly emotional rich people, same goes to superhero movies, I’m tired of the “Mah parents are dead!” angle of superheroes. It’s an overused angle created by Batman & I’m sick of superheroes that use that as a motivation to do good in the world. I’m sure there are a few comics/ superheroes who do this, but how about a superhero that protects the world because it’s the humanly thing to do. That’s also a reason why I don’t like this ‘New 52’ DC comic re-launch, too much unnecessary negativity & dark themes. They made Superman (The ultimate do gooder boy scout) into an egomania dick, in an issue he yells at a dog for wearing his cape. What the fucking hell!!! This also translated to Science Fiction (films, movies, books, etc.) where every story about the future is nothing but a corrupt government that screwed America over (though that sounds plausible), post apocalyptic due to a virus or invasion or humanity being lazy. What happened to the optimistic future? I want my goddamn pointy spaceships!!
So when it comes to negativity, negate it with positivity. Don’t let the negative auras of the world around you get in the way of doing something positive like writing or doing a donation drive or even watching a movie you like which everyone hates. In this case I’m going to defend sad people who like crap movies because believe it or not, I kinda dug the 1995 ‘Judge Dredd’ movie. I understand that it’s not faithful to the comic book & Stallone butchered it, but I love it as a big budget, studio R-rated flick. Don’t get me wrong, I dug ‘Dredd’ & it’s superior to the 1995 film, but ‘Judge Dredd’ was a cheesy 80’s 90’s action movies which always stuck my fancy. Also, if there’s something you need to say that pisses you off, go ahead & say it instead of holding it in, that’s one of the many reasons why I do this blog. People will tell you to shut up, or that your opinion doesn’t matter. If you have been told that your opinion doesn’t matter after they heard it, then that means they’re afraid of what you have to say & they’re weak ass people because they are afraid of words with a force.
That is all for today, next time I’m going to focus an entry on movie trailers for films that will be released on 2015 & I have an entry’s worth of commentary on the crap Hollywood is flushing out. This will certainly be outdated after all the films are released. So I will have to skip our current affairs segment (unless something heavily crazy happens).
Goodbye & don’t take all that I said about mentality with a grain of salt, love yourself, but also grow some balls & don’t listen to Dr.Oz. I hate that fucker.
Bye Bye ^.^
Oh & I made a forum. I don’t know what to do with it. I’m using it just to promote the site. Visit it if you must, I’m unclear what else I’m going to do with it.
