It’s been a minute since I posted something other than a throw back. The same can be said for my motivation to have new photos taken of myself, but sometimes the right piece of clothing or right accessory comes along and motivates me to do something again.
Thanks @skullringpics for always entertaining my photo ideas.
Today is National Cherry Turnover Day. I’m not really a fan of those, now chocolate turnovers that’s a different story. Also for wine lovers it’s Red Wine Day. Though today is also the day Bill and Ted 3 is available and everyone should just watch it while drinking wine and eating turnovers.
Today in history in 1963 Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I Have A Dream” speech in front of 250,000 people on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. This was during the March on Washington demonstration that brought black, whites, poor, and the rich to come together in the nation’s capital and demand voting rights and equal opportunity for African Americans and to appeal for an end to racial segregation and discrimination.

Another Thursday means another set of throwback photos. I might be taking some new ones soon and obviously social distancing and being safe. These photos were done by one of my late great friends and I sometimes still can’t wrap my head around that he’s not here anymore. I’m glad I have these and some other photos to remember him by.
Today is National Drive-Thru Day and National Tequila Day. So go pick up some food but use the drive thru and get a bottle of tequila (I recommend cranberry and tequila, it’s a really good combo) and have a google hangout party.
Today in history in 1911 Machu Picchu was discovered by American archeologist Hiram Bingham. When Bingham arrived on Peru, his goal was to find the lost city of the Incas. Lee by an 11 year old boy, he achieved his goal. Since the cities discovery more then 300,000 people visit the city a year.

Every time I look at these photos I always think of these titles to give it, the Red Queen, Queen of Pain, and Queen of Broken Hearts. Oh well only thing I know is I look royal as fuck in these pictures hahaha
Maybe one day I’ll start taking new photos again but until than I’ll stick with throwback ones. I love this 1950s gown. When I put it on for the first time, it was already set to my measurements. It truly felt made for me.
Today is National Corn Fritter Day. I had to google what these things were and hard pass. If anyone digs them, than they are all yours.
Today in history in 1945 the Manhattan Project comes to an end as the first atomic bomb is successfully tested in Alamogordo, New Mexico. The project started in 1939 and Albert Einstein wrote President Franklin Roosevelt encouraging the development as he was afraid the Germans would develop it first. He would later regret this, along with scientist on the project. The original budget for the Manhattan Project was $6,000 but ended up costing $2 billion.

Throwback to normal days when we could go to places like Disneyland, also pictured was a time when I had no leg tattoos and black hair.
Today is National Sugar Cookie Day. There is only one sugar cookie I like and that is the holiday ones they usually sell at the store (already cooked).
Today in history in 1947 in a ceremony at the Pentagon, General Dwight D. Eisenhower appoints Florence Blanchfield to be a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army, making her the first woman in the U.S. Army history to hold permanent military rank.

Another throwback to a simpler time. Definitely when lock down is over (and if it’s still warm out) I need to go visit the dinosaurs at Cabazon and plan some Palm Springs getaway.
Today is World UFO Day. A few months back the government admitted to their existence. We didn’t focus much on it because 2020 had been a dumpster fire.
Today in history in 1964 President Lyndon B. Johnson signs the Civil Rights Act into law during a nationalized televised ceremony at the White House. Kennedy made passing the civil rights bill part of his presidency platform. When Kennedy won the Presidency, Johnson served as chairman of the a President’s Committee on Equal Employment Opportunities. After Kennedy’s assassination, Johnson vowed to carry out his proposal for civil rights reform. The Civil Rights Act fought tough opposition in the House and a lengthy, heated debate in the Senate before being approved.
In my history today is my black cat Billy’s birthday, he turns 7.

Throw back to when @art_of_victor_medina and @_donnarouge helped me achieve my “Sin City” dream and made me into a comic book character come to life. It’s still one of my favorite pieces. I actually have all the “Sun City” graphic novels and am a huge fan of the series and Frank Miller. Also my hair was silver during this time (oh how I miss it)
Today is National Strawberry Parfait Day. I only enjoy these when made out of ice cream and whipped cream, if made with frozen custard than don’t even bother (not a custard fan)
Today in history in 1876 the Battle of Little Bighorn occurred which is also known as Custer’s Last Stand. 3000 Native American troops defeated the 600 U. S Soldiers. This battle marked the most decisive Native American victory and the worst US Army defeat in the long Plains Indian War. This victory was led by Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull, though sadly in five years the Sioux and Cheyenne would be confined to reservations. It’s kind of ironic I was just talking about my dislike for custard and today was Colonel Custer’s Last Stand.

One thing I’ve never openly admitted is how I’m a sucker for those souvenir photo booths. I love how they are just so chaotic and you have such little time to figure out how you’re going to pose. There is no do overs and however the camera captured you, that’s what you end up with. The more people you try to fit in, the more crazy the photo comes out.
These are my favorites. I don’t care if I take ones alone but the ones with friends are best. The ones by myself are when I went to Orlando to see a bunch of bands play, followed by the Colorado trip for the NYE @lessthanjake show (we stopped by a bar so I could get a @redcityradio glass) and my first ever Chicago trip to see Allister play with @afunkychild.
Today is National Splurge Day. Splurging doesn’t mean breaking the bank but could be something like treating yourself to that dessert or coffee drink you’ve been denying yourself. It’s that “oh what the hell, I’ve earned it” kind of thought. So enjoying doing something extra for yourself.
Today in history in 1983 Sally Ride becomes the first American women in space aboard the space shuttle Challenger on its second mission to space. This is not to be confused with the mission that took several astronauts lives, which happens three year later. The Challenger had three successful missions before the tragic one that took seven lives. The second mission was a big step for women because originally NASA only allowed men to be astronauts despite the Soviet’s putting a women in space exactly 20 years and two days before the US.

Sunday a few @goodr coworkers and friends got together to protest against racism and talk about equality for LGBTQ+ and all black lives. I know many who don’t get it and believe they are already treated equal, so I’m going to give some context on how soon these groups became “equal”
Black men got the right to vote in 1870:
150 years ago
First African American to break the color barrier in baseball since the 1800s plays in 1947:
73 years ago
Segregated Schools became unconstitutional in 1954:
66 years ago.
Jim Crow Laws we’re abolished in 1964:
56 years ago
Black women got the right to vote in 1965:
55 years ago
Banning interracial marriage became unconstitutional in 1967:
53 years ago
First Black American astronaut(Soviet Union sent an astronaut of African decent before the USA) was sent into space in 1983:
37 years ago
Sodomy Laws (which were used to target homosexuals) became unconstitutional in 2003: 17 years ago
Same sex marriage legalized in all 50 states in 2015:
5 years ago (and they still struggle with it being allowed or fear of it being removed)
There are still people alive who remember when the world was segregated and being LGBTQ+ could send you to prison. Just because things were deemed unconstitutional does not mean it changes how someone thinks. These two groups have barley had the chance to live with out fear of being arrested just because of who they love and the color of their skin. Yet in 2020 history is repeating itself and they have to fear for their lives by interacting with police and society. Yes many of us will speak for them but there are still those who remain silent and believe this is overreacting. The only way change is going to happen is if we use our voices in unity and say “Being racist is unacceptable and has no place in this world. Hating the LGBTQ+ community is unacceptable and has no place in this world”

This past weekend @punkrawkprof and I went to Warner Springs to check out Eagle Rock. There are a few ways you can do the hike but we did the one that was 8.41 miles. It was a great time and the much needed break from reality, also we now have a great story from this adventure.
We thought we would be smart and so we parked my car at the end of the route and her car at the beginning. Only snag in our bright idea was I thought it would be a good idea to leave my keys in her car. Luckily the end was right next to a Cal Fire Station and they helped us out by going to her car for us and getting my keys (we had tried to grab an Uber but the place is pretty rural). If they hadn’t been there we would have ended up hitchhiking because it was getting dark and neither one of use wanted to walk three hours back.
Today is National Black Cow Day. I know what your thinking, moo cow but no. This is in honor of Root Beer Floats. This may surprise you but I don’t like root beer or floats. It’s shocking I know, but for those that do I hope you enjoy one today.
Today in history in 1692 the first Salem witch was hung. Bridget Bishop was the first to be tried by the special Court of Oyer and Terminer (“to hear and to determine”). She was known for her dubious moral character, frequented taverns, dressed flamboyantly, and was married three times. She claimed her innocence but they found her guilty. In total 19 innocents women and men died as a result of the Salem Witch Trials.

Black Out Tuesday isn’t about being silent, it’s to show unity with the community but that does not mean you still can’t use your voice. Contact your local and state government officials, contact the police chief, and anyone else involved in the police department, flood their phones, email boxes, and snail mail! Demand that they change how they train the police, demand they don’t profile based on color, demand that they be given the tools and skills to handle every situation properly. Dont go silent, use your voice to drive change! We can do it, I know it.
I was once told that my eyes give away my true emotions and it had always made me uncomfortable to know that they could betray me.
Now I feel like I have them under control and so no one ever knows what I’m feeling unless I tell them (though I still wear sunglasses all the time to be safe)
Continuing with the photos from the set I never shared.
Today is National Strawberries and Cream Day. I love strawberries and whip cream. It’s just so good. I am totally going to eat this when I get home
Today in history in 1881 the American Red Cross was founded by Clara Barton and Adolphus Solomons in Washington D.C. The organization was established to provide humanitarian aid to victims of wars and natural disasters in congruence with the International Red Cross.

Throwback to one of my favorite haircuts. I’m thinking of bring it back next year, but just waiting for my hair to get longer. It’s weird to think a hair style could fit me so perfectly. I also realized I hadn’t shared very many photos from this shoot and decided to change that, it’s not like I’m going on adventures right now anyways.
Today is National Buttermilk Biscuit Day. I’m not a fan of buttermilk biscuits but buttermilk pancakes, not that’s a different story. My cats like buttermilk biscuits and sometimes I give them a few pieces.
Today in history in 1973 America”s first space station, Skylab was successfully launched into orbit. Eleven days later US astronauts Charles Conrad, Joseph Kerwin, and Paul Wentz went up to Skylab to repair a jammed solar panel and conduct scientific experiments during their 28 day stay.
