My present to you for making it to the 400th post? RAP VIDEO!

No beatin’ around the bush on that title (figuratively OR literally)!  I had my NEW friend Kemp and my OLD friend Carlos help me out.  Check it stat (and please excuse my being a little dance happy.  I’m not as smooth/subtle as my friends):

And if you think that was entertaining (probably mainly because Katherine was making a fool of herself), it actually wasn’t anything compared to what these guys can do for real.  Here’s just a taste of their INSANE TALENT.  And yes Mom, the following is improvised.

Here’s Carlos’s youtube channel. 

And here’s Kemp’s twitter. 

Oh, and just had to include this one too:

How this blog is helping people!

I have a friend named Sonrisa.  Not her real name of course (my name in 8th grade Spanish class was Sonrisa that means SMILE, so that’s why I chose it.)  ANYWAYS, Sonny came home and read this blog, then gained some clarity about a D-bag who had been in and out of her life for quite some time after she read the comment on this post (thanks Christine!).  She realized Mr. D hadn’t weathered enough storms, and that she needed a man by her side, not a boy who’d run and hide!  And NOW, she is that much closer to finding her dream man.  Love you Sonrisa!  Thanks for telling me, and onward you go 🙂

And as for me?  Just call me “Katherine clean Carrie Bradshaw Wilkinson.”

There were a lot of good things about the John Mayer concert,

Screen shot 2013-08-08 at 3.16.45 PM

but this is definitely in the top 3.

The whole thing is AMAZING, but if I had to pick one or two lines to highlight, it would be this:

So when you start feeling like the world’s coming down on you, and that somebody feels like you’re not good enough or smart enough or thin enough, and that’s getting sent to you, like a psychic getting sent to ya, like a pyschic getting sent to ya, just ask for names.  And guess what?  There are no names.  It’s all just fog, it’s all just a made up fog in a hall of mirrors, it’s all garbage, it doesn’t exist, so just do away with all that negative energy; it doesn’t even exist, it’s not even real….when people see other people having a good time and not questioning it, they just like to bring it all down, ya know.  “I WANT NAMES!” from now on.  And let me tell you something.  I’ve been through my life, and I got bumped, and I got bruised, and I got kicked to the ground., but I never actually got a name the whole time.  And therefore, I disregard all of it, and assume that I am loved the world round. 

Whoops, guess that was a few more than 2 lines.  If it’s all meat, you can’t cut any out!

My (near perfect) approach to satire…

Screen shot 2014-06-03 at 11.17.26 PMscreen-shot-2013-09-18-at-11-58-04-pm

When it comes to our world and its issues, there is a lot to say!

… And a lot to criticize

There are absolutely times when it’s important to speak plainly and even harshly.  To reprove with sharpness (Doctrine and Covenants 121:43) , and to not beat around the bush (From what I understand, my grandfather Ernest Wilkinson often preferred this approach.).

So I occasionally will speak harshly (but still intelligently!) about subjects, but my passion does not overrule my logic (and vice versa).

Here are 2 of my strongest examples yet:

1)  Some Mansions

2)  Halloween Costume from Hell

And there are certain topics that Katherine simply will not explore in a comedic way (humor is great, but out of bounds can be dangerous, obscene, and grossly offensive).

You will never see any joke on my blog about racism, abuse, pornography, or violence.  

And it is NOT that I am afraid of alienating readers (although I do seek to maintain them!).  It is that those jokes are not a part of my life AT ALL, and therefore most certainly will not be part of my blog.

However, when it comes to less serious (but still important!) issues like modesty, time spent on Facebook, and dating, things that are relevant to many people but are especially present in my psyche as a Mormon living in Provo, I like to (try to) be  funny!  I often think deeply about the issue (let it cook in the crock-pot of my mind for a while), but usually say very little.  It’s that whole “economy of words” things again.

Sure I know how to write 15 page papers, but in this case, I think that often the less said, the better.  Brevity IS the soul of wit, ya’ll! As long as what you are saying is funny, uplifting, entertaining, honest, but still speaks an important truth and sparks discussion and thought, I believe that often the point gets across most clearly and perfectly.  The idea of “truth in jest” shows up in almost all of my posts, and it is the core of my approach to satire.

(2 Shakespeare references in 1 paragraph-not bad!)

Two of my greatest influences in this respect are Ellen DeGeneres and Brad Paisley.  Both are brilliant comedians and satirists (Brad is also extremely good looking and could shred a guitar to pieces), but are NOT preachy or unkind.  They respect the intelligence of their audience.  And I believe this is what makes them so good.  Check out these two examples:

Well done, you two.  Well done.  Thanks so much for your inspiration.

And now back to the woman of the hour…

My satire may not be perfect, but it is funny, witty, occasionally sexy, intelligent, clean, refreshing, and overall pretty darn awesome, if I do say so myself.

Make new friends, but keep the old…

One is sexy dark chocolate, and the other flaxen gold.

See what I did there?

Wrote the line in my head, THEN took the picture (chicken/egg dilemma)

I am cuter than this.  I SWEAR (not literally).  But then again, you already know that 🙂

There are worse things to have take over your life….

than a blog.  Especially when you’re not married, don’t have kids, and are not fully employed (but I got a job yesterday!  will write about it soon).  And this blog is actually helping me make connections and also is allowing me to encourage others to awaken their dormant talents as well!  So any haters out there in cyber-space who think I’m a little TOO blog happy, here’s what I have to say:

Coulda been the other version, huh? 🙂
