And the Oscar goes to…..

21 Jan

The latest Oscar buzz is now mired in controversy. People are not talking about the best actor, director, screenplay, &c.; they are talking about the lack of the best black actor, best black director, best black screenplay, &c.

Personally, I no longer watch the Academy Awards. Most of the time they pick shows that I’ve never heard of, or shows that after seeing, I scratch my head wondering why the hello they picked em to be in the running. The Academy voters are like the government; they decide which shows and performers you’ll like, and which shows and performers you won’t. I don’t believe they consider race.

It could be that my perspective is way off, and the Academy voters are racist pricks who choose white shows that everybody aught to love, and choose white actors who people unquestionably love…….like Sean Penn. Sorry, but I still stand by my contention that these silly voters aren’t racists. They are elitists.

Obviously, my train of thought is not on the same track as the latest buzzers. This quandary, I am told, is a black thing, and I wouldn’t understand. I notice no Asian or Latin faces in the mix this year. I wonder why they haven’t started a boycott as well. Come to think of it, I haven’t seen any Indians (head- feathered or head-dotted) for that matter. Hmmm….

Maybe we should adopt an affirmative action Oscars program. This would assure that in addition to the shows that already suck, we can have a percentage of diversified suckdom thrown in to make the displeasure of watching the Academy Awards more interesting.

The Academy Awards is for suckers. As for the non-nominated nominees; any occupation that craves and demands so much adulation and adoration in addition to their pay, only proves to me that their love for their craft isn’t really love at all.

Don’t Touch Our Tits*

27 Oct

For me there is nothing worse than getting a mammogram. Let me give all you fellas a glimpse into the fun that we girls go through once a year…..

First they give you this open-backed gown for modesty – kinda pointless as the tech does everything but motorboat your bazookas.

Seriously, your hooter is placed on a cold metal slab, and arranged as if being plated by a Michelin-star chef serving the Queen of England. To make the perfect presentation, it is then flattened a la Melon Crepe-style by another cold metal slab from above. As you exhale through your discomfort, you are told not to breathe (the perfect shot is essential.)

Perhaps this would all be fun if Hugh Jackman was my titty tech, but I guess they don’t let men do this kind of job…..or actors?

Imagine then, my rapt attention when perusing my Prevention magazine. The page I opened to reads: Creating Fear for No Purpose? Take a look at what happened over the course of a typical decade for women 50-74 who got mammas versus those who didn’t.

It then listed the stats for every 1000 women who did get screened and those who did not. Check this out:

Not Screened                                                                                                               Screened

0    Women who learned after biopsy that their diagnosis was a false positive            100

0    Women whose breast-removal surgery was medically unnecessary                      5

21  Women who died from all types of cancer                                                              21

5    Women who died from breast cancer                                                                       4

Interesing, huh? Basically, Dr. Laura Esserman, a renowned breast surgeon and scientist, correctly asserts that we should do away with blanket mammogram guidelines, and make them the life-saving tool they were meant to be. Her research showed that while screening mammography was increasing breast-cancer diagnoses, it was not reducing cancer deaths. Esserman has designed a new system of screening that will dramatically lower the number of women who die from breast cancer. Don’t get your hopes up too high; mammograms are still part of the mix in her logical breast-screening trial called WISDOM.

To keep abreast, please read the full article in the November edition of Prevention. In the meantime, please pray that Jackman desires a career change.
