Pat Benatar – Behind the Music…

01) Pat Benatar – Behind the Music


I think the one sole thing about Pat which I had a harder time with…was the “Hell is for Children” thing…

I was still pretty young when it came out..It sounded fine…It just always went over like a thud, with me…It’s a dark, very emotionally suggestive song, incorporating your typical themes on child sexual abuse.

Why it stood out, is because nobody was doing this type of thing…introducing that sort of issue, with that sort of depiction and message…

As I got a bit older…I realized more deeply what the song was actually about…and for most of my life, “Hell is for Children” has stood out in my mind…as a pioneering effort to construct this really dark mental picture…of “what it means for children to be touched by sex”…

…I dislike this song, because of what it lyrically pushes…in a black and white sort of way.

It always seemed like it was setting there, “right at the beginning”, fanning the flames of hysteria.

At the same time…I do realize, that “Hell is for Children” does represent the lived experience of many children in this world.

I just think the song falls short, morally…in that it’s so narrow in view…

…There is no distinction…It’s all just, “You shouldn’t have to pay for your love, with your bones and your flesh”…as if there were no other option, than brutality and injury.

Given everything that falls under the umbrella of “child sexual abuse”…I find this to be a really wrong, honestly reprehensible, framing of the issue.

Date: May 01, 2019

01) Gender Test – Gender Role Test – More Masculine? or Feminine?

“You are more Masculine!

You are the person who is protective towards the people you care about and you like to make them feel comfortable in your presence. In order to do that, you are always the one who invites everybody to hang out, you make funny jokes and tell interesting stories, but on the other hand, you always know when to act seriously. Whenever you have clear goals, you make sure they become true because of your strong will decisive personality.”

“Serving up the best roadkill on the web!

You Can’t Do That On Television

Everything you ever wanted to know!

But were afraid to ask!”

A very cool, old style fan site, for You Can’t Do That On Television.

The pictures are really grainy…and this will remind you of a website from the 1990’s [which, personally, I love]…It hasn’t been updated in a long time…

…But, there’s a lot of pictures…there’s a great rundown, of every single episode…The trivia game still works [for me, anyway]…So, this is a worthwhile visit, for anyone who loved the show.


02) You Can’t Do That on Film

American Death Cult has MILLIONS worshipping FAKE SCIENCE!…

01) American Death Cult has MILLIONS worshipping FAKE SCIENCE!


“In this episode of “Modern Death Cults” we take a look at one of the largest and most dangerous sects of dogmatic zealots in history: the United States of America!”

This is what happens when the common media tactics used to disparage people and cultures, is applied to cultures normally shielded from such.

Very interesting watch…Not sure it’s entirely accurate…but, still…

This clearly wasn’t meant to be taken seriously…and I love this type of poignant exercise.
