Happy Monday.

The following PSA is brought to you by Tish Lyndsey and the letter 'R'.

In light of my last blog and the commentary of a deeply respected friends opinion, I need to go on record and state the following. I in no way condone nor encourage the misuse of any narcotic - street or prescription. (The misuse of alcohol, however, is a-ok with me. Joking!) Abusing painkillers is bad-news-bears, and more importantly, out of sync with the good girl image I need to uphold! So hear that kiddies? Feeling down? Ride a skateboard, rent 'The Secret', write about it - whatever - Everybody Huuuuurts. (That was meant to be sung in a goat-like Michael Stipe voice.) Just channel your blues properly and the world can live as one. I don't know what that meant, but I needed a big finish.
I'm Tish Lyndsey, and I approve this message.


So anyway, I got sucked into watching the VMA's last night and I realized a few things. I'm young, but waaaaay too old for that mess. I just don't get it. (I will graciously accept my moon man next year though. lol) I never watch MTV, so I guess I'm out of touch with what's supposedly 'cool'. I assure you though, I'm not one of those snobby "Oh, I NEVER watch TV or listen to the radio types". No way - I'm as simple as they come. I just appreciate real music and real artists. They are few and far between these days. I knew I made a mistake watching the show when Britney Spears won video of the year. She apparently has never won, and she took home an award last night for 'Piece of Me'? Nice track and all, but come on. If that was video of the year, it was a horrible year for music. Homegirl didn't dance, she looked high as a kite, and I'm pretty sure her outfit came from Rainbow. If ever she were to win a VMA, it should have been for 'Toxic.' If Tyson Beckford's in your video, you should just automatically win. That should be the standard. note to self: have my people call his people...
Anyway, watching the show just made me confused. Where was the singing? The soul? The passionate performances? None to be found. I did feel impassioned seeing Lil Wayne's underpants though - I wanted to sit him in a corner and sternly tell him it's not polite to moon people. Time out, young man! I guess I just miss the days of real live artists.
Oh well, that's what You Tube's for.

love,
t

Here's one of the few highlights. Paramor.




And for old times sake, here's Alanis showing these young cats how it's done.

    Good afternoon. Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all other countries because you were born in it. I am from Nicaragua and now study English, tell me right I wrote the following sentence: "For types hermès has associated with tuareg boards on perfect perfume." Thank :p Adonis.
