Song of the day: "My Name is Not Susan" Whitney Houston
A long forgotten dance gem in my opinion.
I loved "talking out" of this song on the radio, because simple humor amuses me most.
" 10:52, Whitney Houston there, who's not Susan, but I am!"
I used to think that was sooo funny. But it probably wasn't to most people. Which can explain alot.
Yes, my name is Susan. And I'm here to claim it.
What got me on this protective Susan rant is something I just read about- a new "mockumentary" that will be appearing on the web. And it stars Sarah Silverman. Who I don't particularly care for. I don't know why. Some would say it's jealousy. But whatever, the point is...her characters name is SUSAN! grrrrr.
But of course I've just given the show a plug, so there you go. Any P.R is better than no P.R I always say. Look at Britney if you don't belive me for heavens sakes!
But I digress...
Sarah Silverman playing a Susan is not as bad as the mother of all eyebrows lady who I really really don't care for, Brooke Shields who did a show called "Suddenly Susan" for what seemed like forever. I could NOT believe Susan was her characters name. I took it as a personal assault. Back then I was on the air and I would rail about it constantly. The universe had plotted against me. That too would probably explain alot.
Cute Susan side note, while Googling for "Suddenly Susan" I came across a interesting little blog by that name.
See, my "Susan bashing" is random. For example, I didn't mind Madonna's character being called Susan in "Desperately Seeking Susan".
Although I always wonder-Why does the flower's name have to be Black Eyed Susan??
Why are trays that rotate around called a Lazy SUSAN???
Yes, my name is Susan and I'm a bit of a a nut job.
It's been about six months since I started this blog, and I wasn't quite sure where I was going with it. I just knew it was something I really wanted to do. And felt I should do. People have been asking me, what is your blog about? And I usually say "pop culture", which is partially true. But really it's about me I guess, and my little observations on the world. And it's a release for rants that would normally be reserved for the radio.
We are all "me centric". We all think the universe revolves around us, and can't understand why people would not agree with us, hence the reason there is so much bickering going on in the world.
I used to say, "I'm the sun, and you are all planets circling me"
And someone said to me, "Well in that case, I want to be Pluto, as far away from the sun as possible"
That brings you down a peg.
Because in the end, it's the over sized ego that gets you, no matter what your name is.
