This should be incredibly obvious, but I’m just going to say it anyways:

THE CONTROVERSY KNOWN AS MILEY CYRUS IS NOT OK!

Image

Miley Cyrus’s recent crazy antics, self-exploitation, and blatant and obscene exhibition of sexuality are not cute.  They are not funny.  They are not sexy.  They are not empowering.  They are not entertaining.  They are not artistic.  They are not healthy.

THEY.  ARE.  SAD.

And friends, we NEED (young) women who are classy.  We need women who respect themselves and others.  We need these women as role-models for our own children.

One of my favorite musicians expresses this same sentiment:

   I’m looking for a four-course meal that isn’t based in base desire
I’m looking for a lady that knows the soul is more than an appetizer

But back to the troublesome twerker:

Ms. Cyrus, I only just recently wrote you a letter concerning your disappointing music video “Wrecking Ball. (I wrote your confused father, Billy Ray, a letter as well).”  I didn’t expect to be writing about you again so soon, but you’ve left me no choice.

Miley seriously, you must make a change.

I beg of you to stop before you self-destruct.  Truly.

Please.  Stop.

Readers, as is always the case,

if you agree with what I’m saying,

please pass this along.

Thanks.

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…

(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:

“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!

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!”

Whitney me JM concert...

so BACK TO BIBLIOTECHAS (after that long but still fascinating tangent)!

Let’s ask ourselves what are the extremes/outliers to all the stuff available to us today..

Where is the wisdom in all this knowledge?

Eternal struggle between reading and writing…

What things do you like about the library?  What things intimidate you?

That time that Andy Grammer kindly and tactfully squashed a TWSS joke at his concert…

Image

That’s a true man right there.

Andy, no wonder I haven’t forgotten about that kiss that rocked my world…

Readers!

1)  How do YOU react to TWSS jokes (or even opportunities to make them yourself)?

2)  Would you follow Elder Christofferson’s advice and be as awesome as Mr. Grammer was?

*And just so you know, whoever kisses Ms. Katherine has to be just as cool in this regard…

🙂

Actually the Best/ Celestial was that kiss, but some things are too sacred to photograph.  Yes I just compared my brief kiss with Andy to the LDS Temple, and yes I am expecting a thunderbolt of blasphemy.

Oh,wanna know more about Celestial/Telestial/Terrestrial?  Check it stat:

My Fan Video to Andy Grammer

Remember when I got a little kiss from Andy Grammer?  Well I worked REALLY hard for the opportunity to get those meet-and-greet passes.  I even had to do this.  And yes, I am confident enough to share:

Reluctant Optimists

                                                          Neil

“I never personally considered myself an optimist.  And I have dark days…but it’s just about reminding yourself that there are so many tiny little awesome things in life.”   –Neil Pasricha 

schmandy

“I’m not intentionally trying to be positive.  I’m just trying to be real.” –Andy Grammer

gordon

“I am not suggesting that you put on rose colored glasses to try and make the world look better.  I plea that we stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight.”     -President Gordon B. Hinckley

Read the whole speech here.

I love all these quotes.  Being optimistic doesn’t mean we never experience pain.  It doesn’t mean we pretend those things aren’t real.  It means that maybe we can choose to be happy despite the pain, and that maybe there still are good things to come.  Now just one final question…can I still wear these?
