KATH DON’T CARE what Simon Says…

Truths to Consider:

1)  WE ARE ALL ARTISTS! (here’s Prezident Uchtdorf’s take on this…)

2)  We ain’t all gonna make it big (and that’s okay, ya’ll!)

3)  Stem of Jesse (Jessica!) in the scriptures

4)  What insight “The Merchant of Venice” taught me about the HBO filth series “Girls”

5)  My take on “The Great Gatsby” in 3 sentences.

6)  Haven’t yet written about Mark Twain’s  ever famous and influential piece (Huck Finn).  Stay.  Tuned.

7)  What Amanda Bynes (indirectly) taught me about Mormon temples.

8)  “American Idol” certainly has produced some talent, but overall is waaaaay over-rated.

9)  Hozaboutcha take an exodus from this blog and go read about what Moses says about idols? (here!)

10)  Katherine loves wordplay.  And admit it, she’s pretty darn awesome at it, huh? 🙂

Howard Stern

is a coward who’s show should burn!

figuratively

A STERN sonnet about a miserable man

howard

This man is awful.

His “program” filth.

I’ve never watched it.

And never will.

Screen shot 2013-10-07 at 3.29.10 PM

Howard could stand to cut his hair.

Or maybe he should use some Nair.

That would burn his scalp of sin.

Sorry, hope ya’ll know I’m just JOKin’

Howard-Stern

But seriously words cannot express

How much Stern is a pathetic mess

I HATE that some consider him a star

when he takes freedom of speech WAY.  TOO.  FAR.

Screen shot 2013-10-07 at 3.36.14 PM

But Howard, wouldn’t it be fun.

If your story turned out like that of the Prodigal Son?

🙂

Repentance is real ya’ll; even for the vilest of sinners.

Jesus_Christ

It is.

The natural [Katherine] is an ENEMY… (Mosiah 3:19)

RESEARCH:

1)  Why 1984 made me doubt the name Katherine

(doubt not, but be believing!)

2)  How veeeery much of an influence Ms. DeGeneres and Mr. Paisley are on me.

3)  The reconciliation of the paradox of being an enemy and being a daughter.

4)  What water taught me about selecting television program(s).

5)  OH.  BE.  WISE.  (what can I say more?!)

Main Objective

I have a lot of goals and purposes for my blog (read here about it’s many part-time jobs).  I have a vision for it.  A dream, even.  And yet I still can say in two simple words what my main objective is:

What the heck does that even mean?

So, yes friends.  That is what I’m striving to do.  Hope it’s working at least somewhat.  And I think it is, to be honest 🙂  As I have said before, my blog is (partially) a gift to you!  And as I have also said before, if it’s not doing it for ya, then there’s a ton of other websites you could be browsing right now….

sure [does] stimulate my brain

Gwyneth Paltrow

Imagehas, through the years, said publicly many, many tacky, arrogant, sexual, and overall highly inappropriate things with which I find (great) offense.  Chris’s wife badly needs to take a course concerning class.

Gwyney, you would do well to learn from mine and John Mayer’s life lessons concerning freedom of speech.

Screen shot 2013-09-20 at 8.06.34 PM

Girl, just cuz you’re thinking it

don’t mean you gotta say it!

Even if it is the truth.

Line of Propriety, Paltrow!

Divine Organism

A few years back, a stupid 90s pop song suggested that the human race was merely mating mammals likened unto primates on a popular scientific television program.  Um, that’s pretty ridiculous, if you ask Kath.  Check it out:

Plus there are WAAAAAY better episodes to discover by clicking our channel changer to something else…

And now I would like to share a poem from a few years ago (I wrote it for extra credit for Biology 100 at BYU).  It is not exactly related, but it still speaks of these ideas of science/God/creation, et cetera.  Again, I’m no scientist (and don’t pretend to be!).  But I like to try to explore the ideas of reconciliation of seemingly opposing truths (over which theologians, experts, and philosophers have fought for centuries!).  HERE IT IS!

Creation or evolution?

What’s the solution?

Did God make man?

Or is it from apes we began?

Some thump their Bibles, saying evolution is libel

Some their microscopes claiming God is a hoax…

Creation or Evolution?

What’s the solution?

In this time of scientific and religious growth,

maybe the answer is BOTH!

What didjaylthink?  Again, I don’t pretend to be an expert (but check out more about Mormon scientist Henry Eyring here!) and I CERTAINLY don’t pretend to be the only person who thinks creation and evolution do not need to be mutually exclusive (line of propriety YET AGAIN!).

But seriously that poem is pretty awesome 🙂

(read it again and ponder every. single. word.)

And now a beautiful song from a band that has had on an indelible influence on not only music, not only the world, but also on Katherine!

Lyrics here

(the title is phrase-twisting Mr. Chuck 🙂 Darwin’s famous piece…)

charles-darwin-320x240

There is obviously a lot more to say about these ideas (and you better believe I have more to write!), but this much will suffice for today.

mormon-temple-room

This is a picture from an LDS temple, where we learn more about how divine (of organisms) we really are.

(and I’m allowed to show this pic in case you are wondering!)

Readers:  What are YOUR thoughts on evolution,

science, God, creation, etc.?

We are a special species.”

Dewey (eyed) Beauty Gets Lost in the Library…

Screen shot 2013-09-02 at 5.06.48 PM

I have a confession to make that may cause you to question my ethos as a thinker/writer/scholar:

Back to December all the time…

Screen shot 2013-09-01 at 10.54.33 PM

(don’t love this song, but am sad I didn’t mention DECEMber in the video AND I love Taylor’s whole look here…)

Anyways, libraries can be amazing, but even the great American transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson knew that they could be problematic:

Screen shot 2013-09-01 at 10.44.50 PM

“Meek young men grow up in libraries, believing it their duty to accept the views, which Cicero, which Locke, which Bacon, have given, forgetful that Cicero, Locke, and Bacon were only young men in libraries, when they wrote these books.”

          ~The American Scholar (this address is SO powerful.  Read (about) it!

Screen shot 2013-09-02 at 5.02.07 PM

And to further illustrate (figuratively AND literally!) this idea of library limits,

allow me to borrow some palabras from my dear friend:

They read all the books, but they CAN’T FIND THE ANSWERS!”

Though I rarely (if ever) use profanity, a certain Halloween costume is a BITCH!

I’ll let the video speak for itself:

Regina George may think people can wear whatever they want on October 31st.

ImageBut Katherine Anne does NOT!

Image

There are many beautiful, wonderful things in life in which to find humor & joy.

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 10.56.05 AM

The Holocaust is NOT one of them.

Image

If you agree with me (and you should!), please spread this message/post anyway that you can.

Image

Oh, also I read a book by the German LDS General Authority F. Enzio Busche. 

It changed my life.

Image

  Must write about it soon.  Until then, here’s a wonderful video by him:

But back to costumes (bookending again!),

here is one of my personal favorites of my own:

Strong women are hot, ya’ll.

And speaking of, if somebody’s costume offends you,

don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself.

Take a tip from my friend (pictured above!) Rosie (the Riveter).

Screen shot 2013-10-01 at 10.31.32 PM

And to sum up in one brilliant phrase my beliefs on costumes,

allow me to quote from THE greatest playwright of all time.

Screen shot 2013-08-31 at 11.26.09 AM

“There is much truth in jest (for good and for bad)”

~William Shakespeare

Now it’s time for a little text-to-self connection (my favorite part!):

Righteous Readers: what do your Halloween Costumes say about you (for good and for bad)?

PS.  If you think the fact that there is a Picture of a Pumpkin on this Post (about Halloween!) is a coincidence, THINK AGAIN.

Pay Day!

Explore More Issues Here:

1)  Line of Propriety

2)  Sunburn stuff

3)  Bad hair day means good writing day!

4)  Bragging?  Guilty.  YOU WOULD TOO!

Oh, and by the way, I was singing a version of a John Mayer song (SHOCKING, right?)….

Lyrics here. 

The song is VERY interesting.  The melody/guitar itself is hauntingly beautiful, but the words are contradicting the story-teller’s true convictions (unreliable narrators are FASCINATING).  You see, Johnny is lonely and trying to convince himself that he can engage in self-destructive behaviors (drugs, women, etc.) and it won’t effect him.  Sad.

Have done my own version of “Who Says.”  And I will DEFINITELY include it soon…

But Back to the Benjamins:

Laughing all the way to the bank…

PS.  The check wasn’t for a ton.  And also it will not even begin to cover the costs of medical expenses I will incur from the pending thunderbolt of blasphemy I will shortly receive due to my comparing myself to Brad Paisley.

Hugh Hefner is not a hero.  He is a ZERO.  He is not someone to be admired.  He is a sad, ugly old man who has made millions from an industry that has destroyed relationships, lives, jobs, freedom, confidence, health, and happiness.  Total loser, if you ask me.

Image

Plus, his red plush robe only makes him look more like the devil,

AND emphasizes his blood-shot eyes and blotchy complexion.

And ya’ll know how much I love free speech, but don’t even try to go there with me on this one because I will PULVERIZE every claim you make.  That’s how good I am 🙂  And that’s how bad pornography is.  So let’s hear what real men think of it:

Don’t care about/believe in religion/God/prophets?  This guy doesn’t talk about it:

And neither does this girl:

Pornography is terrible in every way possible!  It’s not sexy.  It’s not hot.  It causes abuse.  It degrades something sacred.  It it highly linked to drug use, depression, crime, and other problems.  Bourne Ultimatum?  I wish we could make it the PORN Ultimatum!  But until then, we just have to try our very best to control ourselves and keep this trash out of our lives in every way possible.  Sound good?  Peeeeeerfect.

🙂

But back to mansions, if we Stay out of the Smut that Satan Spreads, we can party it up at this one!

Image

In my Father’s House are many mansions... I go to prepare a place for you.

~John 14:2

(and for further reading, I also write about chastity/purity/sex/temples here)

PS.  Think I’ve covered all my bases, ya’ll.  And I don’t even play sports.

PPS.  If you are involved in pornography, there is hope, both professional and spiritual.  Keep fightin’

PPPS.  Even Mr. Hefner could repent through the Atonement.

still considering law school…
