RIP Gregory Jacobs

Just grab 'em in the biscuits!

*Mic3* Gregory Jacobs, also known as Shock G and his alter ego Humpty Hump from Digital Underground, passed away Thursday   at age 57.

*Turntable* And I know you know this song, and the P-Funk sample.

*Mic* Even though I'm not a huge fan, he also gave a young Tupac his big break and produced his first album, setting him off on his way to legendary status.

to another musician we lost way too young.

His Humpty song came out the year that I came to the USA for the first time. It was kind of the hymn or battle cry of that summer for me and my friends in the student exchange program on both sides of the Atlantic.
RIP Humpty. He was a funny one.

Hey, anyone heard from Charlie ๐ŸŒˆ lately??
Yeah, I get it. Not like him to not check in here once in awhile though. But thanks for letting us know!
I sent an email a while back so I'm glad to hear from ๐ŸŒ‘ Darleen's writing a novel .
Glad he's doing okay. Thanks for asking Fivesixer ! I wondered about him as well.
Thanks, anonymous GP Prankster!

A shared image for fun

*Dollar* A fitting gif, since I'm also binge-watching Schitt's Creek before I go to sleep each night lately.

*Stop* Besides reversing the order and doing some final edits, I think I'm wrapping up my work-in-progress poetry collection, "World By Design. It's taken me longer than I thought to get through, between surgery and a brain-stifling pandemic we've all had to deal with. Some of you have dealt with it better than others, and by others I mean me. It's time to find some newfangled inspiration and write about something more refreshing...I've only been doing this thing since October of 2017 and I've personally been through a whole lot of change since then.

*Pig* I also wasn't gonna say anything, but soon starts the editing phase again. I almost feel like I haven't left it since Mutants   came out; maybe I'm still living on PT (Pandemic Time). But an indie UK press house I follow, Hedgehog Poetry, has open submissions through the end of this month for their Full Fat Quatre   collection series. "World By Design in some form will be entered once I get off my ass and start dropping it into a Word doc. Word.

*People* And yo, writing isn't always a competition...I encourage all y'all to enter. Hedgehog has turned out some excellent poets over the last couple years. I can definitely vouch for their excellency.

*Pen* So, the whole point of this post was to highlight the fact that I've added a new entry to my book, "World By Design: "What You Want It To Be. It honestly came to me once I decided I was going to do all this but had taken my sleep meds. Banged it out real quick and had a very well-deserved fitful night of sleep.

*Audio3* Gotta shout out some friends while I'm here, right?

I've done a lot of writing during this Pandemic Time by entering contests. Haven't submitted any for publication though. *sigh*

The last 4 years of constant lies and uncertainty has unsettled me. My nerves will calm down eventually (I hope). It takes time.

Thanks for the *Plug*! *Bigsmile*
It's great to see you working on stuff! Thanks for mentioning my contest! *Heart* You're right about you rocking e like you life depends on it. Otherwise, it would be just lif. *Rolling*

It's easy to say this is satire.

But it's not.

*BoxCheckB* I know most of you already have your minds made up. And if you don't, do you have space under the rock you're living?

*BoxCheckB* McSweeney's is a great little humor site, but damn if they're not also keeping track of what's going on in the 4-year panic attack we've been living under. Lest you forget the horrors  , the cruelties, collusions, corruptions, and crimes are all documented here.

*BoxCheckB* I hate talking about politics, because of how divided the US has become. But if you're voting for Trump, feel free to unfollow and/or block me. I can't live another four more years in an America I didn't grow up in. United we stand, divided we fall. I don't need the support of people who support a white supremacist, racist, misogynist, clueless- the list goes on and on- Russian puppet who has no concern for any of us, regardless of which side of the aisle you're on. If you wanna vote against your own interests, that's your business, but for some of us it could really mean life or death. And I'm sorry if you're too shallow to see it that way, but it's true. And I'm also sorry if facts don't mean anything to you, but there's no way I'm gonna make you flip the switch if you can't see the light.

Vote like your life depends on it.
because to some of us, it does.
