RobFather X in a Smooth Groove

I hardly take video selfies but, when I do, I have to make sure that such videos will make me smile, otherwise I won’t post nor share them with anyone. (It’s the shyness factor in me.)
So yeah  folks, this is me at work today [Sunday, August 20, 2017], doing my radio show. I’m grooving to one of my favorite tracks from the American R&B (rhythm and blues) and jazz-funk fusion band/group, The Blackbyrds. The song is Soft and Easy from their 1977 album, ‘Action(Click the song title or this You Tube link to listen to the entire song.)

Staying cool…by any means sexy!

Chillaxin'-71 (how to stay cool)

Face it: it’s hot as fuck somewhere on this globe…perhaps even where you are!
What better way for you to chillax, cool off, and stay cool and sexy than by stepping naked in a public park’s water cascade?
(You can deal with any police-given citation for public nudity later!) 😎

A Man … and by His Own Definition!

CT (use for Man in his 50's post)

By age 50, most males are certain of their manhood and/or are secure in their masculinity, allowing no one to neither define nor determine the measure or degree that is for them. I need not say much more because either my words are true and applicable to the men who read this article or they aren’t.

Acts of Patriotic Defiance

Yesterday, [August 14, 2017] protesters in Durham, North Carolina [U.S.] toppled a 100-year-old statue dedicated to the [then] Confederate States of America (commonly referred to as the Confederacy). Things like that shown in the video (which has gone viral on social media) will be happening by many brave people in other parts of the southern United States and in a number of public places in the U.S. where statues or monuments sit that represent, symbolize or give honor to ideas or advocates of racism, bigotry and other forms of hatred. Watch the video clip:

As an American citizen but more importantly as a person who detests all images, symbols and/or messages of social hatred and bigotry in my country (as well as those in other places around the world), I’m completely in support of legally (but safely) bringing down and having destroyed, any statue, sculpture, monument and/or building sitting on American pubic soil which represents, symbolizes, honors, advocates and/or sends a message of racial hatred and bigotry – or the history of that sort. Future generations of Americans can read about the record of racial hatred and bigotry in the United States; we don’t need to erect, keep or maintain physical monuments to it. Still, while watching the video clip showing a few brave American citizens toppling a statue that was dedicated to the then-Confederate States of America, I couldn’t help but chuckle (not mock, but simply chuckle) at the scene of those persons who did just a little more than that to the inanimate object. (Watch the video again.)

You see, I wouldn’t waste my saliva nor risk hurting or breaking my foot (nor any other body part) on a thing made of materials like metal, marble, plaster, cement or resin, et al; particularly not on a thing which never received life and attacked me. I understand the significance of one spitting on and kicking and hitting a statue. However, those particular acts neither mean anything much nor will they do any more damage than that which has already been done by bird droppings (aka feces or shit), the harsh heat of the sun, acid rain, and winter’s cold and ice during the statue’s existence.

Here’s the point of my message: When tearing down and/or destroying an object whose existence or presence either symbolizes, represents or honors a social and/or moral wrong – or the history of such wrong, I think one should perform those acts of sociopolitical defiance by using good mindful sense and by taking a personally safe and healthy approach. Few things in this world – such as statue and/or building vandalism or destruction, are ever worth hurting, seriously injuring or possibly killing oneself in the process. History rarely remembers martyrs of sociopolitical causes, especially none who haven’t been identified. And remember: the town or city where one has hurt/injured or killed him or herself while in the act of doing those patriotic things of defiance isn’t necessarily obligated to cover that person’s medical, funeral and burial or cremation expenses. Just a little something to think about.
Carry on, patriot!
