Maybe I’m Over Thinking This …

I don’t want to get too deep into this. Personally, I think it is getting out of hand. I don’t have it all figured out. However, I can speak to what I know is true for me.

I watched Elmer Fudd …

I watched Yosimite Sam…

…and I have never had the desire to own a gun or the desire to shoot someone.

I watched Pepe Le Pew…

…and have never forced myself on a woman.

I watched Wile E. Coyote….

…and never had the desire to buy a load of explosives (or kill a Road Runner for that matter).

I watched The Three Stooges…

…and have never hit anyone with a hammer, poked anyone in the eye, pulled out someone’s hair, grabbed someone by the ear with a pair of pliers….

I don’t get it. Especially when I see the garbage that is accepted on TV, in movies, and on the radio. The Grammy Awards is a fine example of the trash that is looked upon by people as “entertainment.” It is far from it. How in the world is WAP by Cardi B even worthy of air play?

Recently, on Facebook everyone was posting the song that was #1 on the day you were born (Mine was American Woman by the Guess Who). I wondered about what song was #1 when my daughter was born, so I looked it up. The song is called The Box by some guy named Roddy Ricch. I truly hope my daughter never looks this up. It is complete garbage. The F word is prominent, the N word is prominent, and plenty of sexual content. It makes me sick.

Sadly, I don’t see things getting any better.

Your Birthday #1

I have always enjoyed looking back at things from the past. When I worked at Honey Radio, I produced the Top 12 and 12 every weekday. We’d always have plenty of information about dates in history. No matter what year we were focusing on, we’d talk about how much a new vehicle cost or the price of milk or bread, the price of gasoline, or the cost of a new home. These pieces of information added extra nostalgia as we counted our way up to the #1 song in the City of Detroit on whatever day (and whatever year) we happened to be focusing on.

I mention that because our daughter Ella turned 10 months old this week.

It’s truly amazing how fast this time has flown by.

American Woman by the Guess Who was #1 on the pop charts when I was born. I guess I have known that for as long as I can remember. I decided to look and see what the #1 song was when Ella was born. Let’s just say that I hope she never really wants to know.

The song that was at #1 is called The Box by someone named Roddy Ricch. I’ve never heard of him and I’ve never hear the song. I looked it up. I read the lyrics. Sigh. Good Lord…

At any rate, if you don’t know what song was number on when you were born … you can find out here:
