OF BOOKSHELVES AND RECORD CABINETS

I'm a published poet and short story author where music and books were the load bearing walls of my childhood. This led to a love of movies, anything from Bogart to Clooney. My heros are Margaret Atwood, Hugh Laurie, and The Beatles. I was lucky enough to have met Ms. Atwood, taught by Thomas Lux, and to have heard Drake Bell play his own music and cover The Beatles three times. My name is Veronica. Let's get passionate.

Watching this (and fearing broken ankles with each loop) I can’t helping thinking about that old quote Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels.

But no, if you watch closely you’ll see she doesn’t even step on the last chair. That means she had to trust that fucker to lift her gently to the ground while he was spinning down onto that chair. That takes major guts. I’d be pissing myself and fearing a broken neck if I were in her place. Kudos to her. 

I can’t stop watching this.

I hate to block people, but this had to be done. I had defriended this person twice because I couldn’t take the constant messages about a certain celeb, the constant, frivolous questions I simply could not answer. After thinking they were gone, they reentered my life last week, with a pitiful story, begging me over and over to answer back. I am sorry to do this, but this person has a mole here on Tumblr that relays my personal posts to them. So here you go. They have decimated any previous support and feelings I had for this celeb. Is it not enough that I never hear from so called closest friends and relatives, that social media has actually made our relationships more distant than they already were? Is it not enough that my stomach hurts from worry, stress and sleeplessness? I cry for my special needs son, everyday. Is it not enough….that a newsman filmed our neighborhood because of the rash of break-ins, and now I have to worry about being broken into virtually? I AM broken, I’m sad. I’m a forgiving person, and I hate to do this to anyone.  
I, too, am sorry I had this experience.

I wish more groups had to AUDITION before they made it to radio these days….

Where the fuck was Ken Burns when I was in high school?????????????? Just turn on the documentaries and forget the books.                                      (P.S. Ken Burns was in high school, drooling in boredom, the same time I was…) 

No wonder.

Announcing: Your V-MAIL now in print!

As trusty followers of Save Bomb Girls will know, Team Save Bomb Girls has been collecting your messages of love and hope for the continuation of Bomb Girls ever since the fight began over a year ago. Some of you may have seen the electronic versions we’ve published at regular intervals, but we’re happy to announce that our collection of V-MAIL is now also in print!

The complete repository is the culmination of hard work by Team Save Bomb Girls and fans alike, spanning messages we have collected between April 2013 and this month that pay testament to our love for the show. The result was a hefty stack of 600 pages of paper containing well over 10,000 individual messages, which is the integral part of four separate V-MAIL packages (see photos above). One of each is now on its way to the TV networks that represented potential homes for the continued series or more TV movies.

Over the course of more than a year, fans of Bomb Girls have sent hundreds upon hundreds of letters, postcards, emails, and packages to the people in charge—a touching exchange that communicated the impact Bomb Girls has had on the world. As much as the show has brought into our lives, so have we given back. To each and every fan of Bomb Girls, each and every follower of Save Bomb Girls, we say: Well done and thank you.

Carry on!
