01) Irate the 80s – Colorforms (Ep 10 History & Review) Pac-Man


“Back in the 1980’s Colorforms were all the rage. For this episode we are going to check out the PACMAN themed Colorform! Includes a history and review!”


1982 GI Joe Colorforms:


Colorforms is Classic!:

“Colorforms is Classic!” features Patricia Kislevitz, who co-founded Colorforms® along with her late ex-husband, Harry Kislevitz, in 1951. Patricia provides insights into some of the early decisions in getting the Colorforms business off the ground and later developments as the brand took flight. She closes by sharing her thoughts for the future.”

I loved Colorforms!…

I used to see these in the store, and long over them.

I only had one set, though…Snoopy [or Peanuts, if you prefer]…It was purchased for me, at a yard sale.

One of my brothers got a set themed on the Muppets.

I always remember the soft feel of these things…and the smell of them…and sticking them onto the scene…It was strangely like playing dollhouse, without the embarrassment of being a boy…who was playing with a dollhouse…

…Which reminds me of the time…when one of the girls in my third grade class brought her Colorforms set to school…A huge, Barbie themed house set…I recall standing off to the side, peering over at what the gaggle of girls were doing with this thing…thinking, “That is so freaking cool!”…”I want one!”…

I wouldn’t have been caught dead asking for that set, however.

Come to think of it…while I’m confessing my deepest embarrassing, boyhood desires…I always loved dollhouses, too…particularly the well built, detailed ones.

I never felt like a girl…nor did I identify with especially girlish things, on average…But, I did like some toys made for girls.

…Well…This post has gone in a curious direction…hasn’t it?

CNN Attacks Jimmy Dore…

01) CNN Attacks Jimmy Dore


“Ads from over 300 companies and organizations — including tech giants, major retailers, newspapers and government agencies — ran on YouTube channels promoting white nationalists, Nazis, pedophilia, conspiracy theories and North Korean propaganda, a CNN investigation has found.

Companies such as Adidas (ADDDF), Amazon (AMZN), Cisco (CSCO), Facebook (FB), Hershey (HSY), Hilton (HLT), LinkedIn, Mozilla, Netflix (NFLX), Nordstrom (JWN) and Under Armour (UA) may have unknowingly helped finance some of these channels via the advertisements they paid for on Google-owned YouTube (GOOGL).

US tax dollars may have gone to the channels, too. Ads from five US government agencies, such as the Department of Transportation and Centers for Disease Control, appeared on the channels.

Many of the companies that responded to CNN said they were unaware their ads had been placed on these channels and were investigating how they ended up there. (Fuller responses from these companies are collected at the bottom of this article.)

One of the companies, Under Armour, is pausing its advertising buy on the platform after CNN notified the company its ads appeared on a white nationalist YouTube channel called “Wife With A Purpose.”

Going back to the well?…

…It worked phenomenally for big media, the first time they did this.

Right-Wing Terrorist Was A Ben Shapiro Fan…

01) Right-Wing Terrorist Was A Ben Shapiro Fan


“Right-wing terrorist Alexandre Bissonnette, who shot up a Quebec City mosque last year, was a fan of Ben Shapiro and other right-wing news hosts. While Shapiro is NOT at fault for the shooting, this brings into question how right-wing pundits cover issues of terrorism.”

I agree…Ben is not at fault for this…

…But I often witness double standards, surrounding this type of social notion…

People love their own community mouth pieces, and commonly turn a blind eye where these senseless acts of terrorism inconveniently happen from within their own community.

I think the problem is unfair representation of the facts…and a total lack of good faith, where it comes to communities one finds scary, or icky…

As an outspoken MAP…I’ve seen far more than my fair share of accusations and blame…

…Some people out there have the audacity…to equate my openly standing up for human rights [including those of children and youth], with some impetus that “will get children raped”…and other such nonsense.

It is mind boggling what people will accuse you of…even when you’ve been acting on the best of intentions all along.

Why Bernie Sanders Should Endorse Cynthia Nixon in NY Gubernatorial Race…

01) Why Bernie Sanders Should Endorse Cynthia Nixon in NY Gubernatorial Race


“Progressive Cynthia Nixon, who’s challenging corporate Democrat Andrew Cuomo in New York’s gubernatorial race, is the the real deal. She checks all the progressive boxes, and as a result, Bernie Sanders should endorse her, as she’s someone who could one day be a potential leader in the progressive movement.”

My Own Worst Enemy Podcast: #051- Interview with a Pedophile (Tom O’Carroll)…


Date: April 20, 2018

01) #051- Interview with a Pedophile (Tom O’Carroll)


“Tom O’Carroll is a self-confessed pedophile, pro-pedophilia advocate, and writer.

In today’s episode we delve in to Tom’s early life, the experience of first realizing his sexual attraction to children, his failed attempts to lead a normal life, and his pro-pedophile advocacy efforts.

We debate the nature of consent, whether or not adult-child sexual relationships are always harmful, if childhood sexual trauma is caused by the sexual acts themselves or subsequent societal judgement, and the likelihood of pro-pedophile advocacy ever resulting in a society which accepts adult-child sexual relationships.”
