But we still have news about a 2nd lion shot by an American back in April.
I'm for all the news coverage because regardless of if it's real or not, it's negative attention for something that should be forbidden.

I agree about not trusting the media; particularly when it comes to American media and politics. Here I find the media to be very polarizing and cable news produces a lot of "hate" TV. Some of the UK's papers such as the Guardian or the Independent seem to have a more journalistic integrity.

Yes it is true that the media is powerful in that it can bring about awareness to issues. Yet it also causes so much confusion. Just look at the whole food issue in the US - gluten, organic, non-GMO, "natural" foods, non-dairy, non-sugar - while we still have the highest rates of obesity. So f--- it, have a piece of cheese and glass of wine here and there. :-) Educating ourselves is so important - and not just in the academic sense - gosh, there is a line by Guru in a song that is sums up what I am trying say. Darn it - I will have play it and come back.

But even though the food issue "sounds" complex, it is because it is. Monsanto, processed, American foods... I try to buy European cheeses and more natural products because the rules on American production are lax. Whole foods has an entire list of chemicals banned from their store, but Meijer, & Kroger sells their items with them.

But you also need to not overeat, and exercise but indulge occasionally!

Yes - we just have to do our own research regarding food and what is healthy because the most of the government funding regarding nutrition in the US is funded by big corps like Nestle, Coca Cola, Kraft and other big corporations that do not make healthy food and care more about pleasing their boards and $$$$$. And these corporations fund research to "prove" that their processed food is not so bad. So what we are taught regarding the food pyramids and what we should consume is not necessarily true.

Found the lyric about the importance of educating ourselves for our survival - it is by Gang Starr, not Guru, in "Who's gonna take the weight?" (my gym song) -

"Knowledge is power, and knowledge can be the difference between life
or death...you should know the truth and the truth shall set you free."


We have to seek out knowledge, truth and information (aside from just college academia or what the media reports) to make the best decisions and create a healthy lives for ourselves, our children, families etc.

(Super tired so hope any of this makes sense.)

I'm not sure if that is the right song Jolie Fille -but I think Gang Starr is old rap!

but I agree with the words. But it is challenging to live ideally because there is just so much.

I was showing my cute little 8yo some Jami videos: "Deeper Underground"
"why does he just keep dancing and doesn't get out of there?"
and "Canned Heat"
he can't go through the walls and TV like that in real life.

everytime I watch Canned Heat I swear those are my tables!

Florida had a Bear Hunt, legally allowing nearly 300 Black bears to be hunted and killed.

Feeling immensely grateful for my life.

Given how we treat our very own mankind - humans (in this case below, refugees) - it never surprises me how awful we treat "animals" (which we are too.) If you need to feel grateful for your life, check out this video http://www.democracynow.org/2015/11/18/ ... hows_risks

Interesting how Jay/Jam is always so prescient about the sh-- going on in the world.

I wish nobody had to leave their land, but could stay safely. And have a say in their government (democracy).
But refugees should be welcomed.

Relaxed - happy holidays (yay!) Finally a break from the hustle and bustle.

Watched this documentary "Lord Montagu" and was thinking Jay or his heirs should do what Lord Montagu did with his English estate and classic car collection. Cool way to preserve history and a person's passion.

thoughts for the day:
Everybody comes from something different. We all share in our own culture. We are born of our own race and ethnicity. People live in many different countries. And people believe in different religions, or none. And many times, people practice the culture or religion from which you were raised. So the best way to be is neutral toward others, in regards to how they live or how they believe. If you believe yours is better than another, this is ethnocentrism. When we believe we are better, this is a sort of survival mechanism, which reinforces we are doing the best we can. But when you put it into words of criticism of another culture, country, ethnicity, race, or religion; then this is discrimination.
So if you don’t like how other people live, whether it be a race, country, or religion of people, keep it to yourself. Because in words, we see hatred.

wow Giba; nicely said. Deep. I studied ethnocentrism in college and how it led to various wars.

The Secret Life of Pets was hilarious!
It was a group of dogs and one cat hanging out, always sitting in a box or bowl!
One scene had this old guy wearing an "I Love Disco" hat!
Snowball, the naughty rabbit was so hip hop he was saying "R I P " to his deceased friend in reference to this song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjQ4m2k9L_g

Well it's a sad day here in America today.
Trump won the electoral college votes, even though Hillary won the majority of the vote.
A country divided by what people think is right and wrong, literally makes me sick. (vomit emoji)

I actually wish Bush was the Republican candidate again. :shock:
My education's worth is thrown out the window (diversity & equality) and my church should be boycotted for promoting Trump.

But America deserves it -they made their bed and they shall lie in it.

I typed out a long response to this question....twice......and lost both posts because I took too long to submit.....

But to answer the question....Not good.

I don't know how adults honestly thought Mr. Trump was the right person for one of the most important jobs in the world. His whole "ass and balls out" approach was a total turn off. The citizens of the United States should have at the very least made him prove he was sane and could show compassion, acceptance and respect for those who are not like him. But this is who will represent these "United" States for the next 4 years.....if he doesn't do something to get impeached before that.

Well I came to find the old Jam Party People forum to join in the excitement of Jamiroquai's new album, Automaton, being released today but no one is here! I absolutely LOVE the album <3 :D

I posted here to explain my side of the story to Jamiroquai, after realizing they probably got K's story. I can’t change my regret, but I can express it.

I confided in you, Leanne, before the trip. K had tweeted of plans to leave London on day 5, a day earlier than my flight out, leaving me alone that day without regard. I told you before the trip my concern that they would leave me! But K on Day 5 (who had stayed at W request) asked me snidely "so, are ya gonna go off on your own today? Hmm??" telling me she knew what I’d told you! 2 other things you’d done lost my trust, but it doesn’t matter now. I don’t trust you either, especially when you mention JolieFillet catfish. :lol:

After the trip, you oddly ask for my pics, and Amy’s telling me K’s gone off to hotels w/her TC, leaving W alone in the lobby. I didn’t believe her words, or trust her either (I fed her some stuff too).

But in the end you all saw her nasty tweets of me, and you all supported her. So you all got blocked. I don’t care today, I wanted to just express the reason for the separation - K didn’t want me on that trip and did everything to let me know. I'm sorry I went with them on that trip -it should've just been them. But I’m still happy for the fans that support the band.

So very sad to hear of the passing of original Jamiroquai keyboardist, Toby Smith, on 11th April, 2017. RIP Toby, your wonderful music will live forever. Condolences to his family and friends.

Jay Kay wrote a beautiful tribute to Toby on Facebook today <3
