The Begining of My Living Will?
Sometimes sh## happens, but when it does you have to be ready.














I'm putting together what I hope will be my living will stating my wishes if
I'm among other things:

In an irreversible coma.

Paralyzed.

So severely disabled I can't take care of myself.


I will work on this more, but for now, I would not want to be kept alive if the aboved happens to me.
Eventually, I want to have that "little talk" with my family so they will know my wishes.

Pink Floyd Marriage Slash: End of Prop 8 Vow
When Prop 8 was being challenged in the courts, I vowed that I would write a marriage slash to celebrate Prop 8's demise if overturned: On June 26, 2013, the US Supreme Court upheld a lower court's ruling that Prop 8 was unconstitutional.

This week the fan fic will start.

The song here might prodide its title dispite not being a PF song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8pulOnIE5Q

BGSL Under Construction
Alert! Hopefully in a year I will be posting to a fanfic page near you about a certian soul pop musician who learns to use BSL because h- couldn't speak as a result of having a trach tube--that's all I'll say! It isn't Adelle--besides she used an app while recovering from throat surgery.

Part of the storyline uses British Sign Language and I'm concidering using this website to learn! http://www.bslhomework.org.uk/

I'm using ASL in this scene, then when I learn more BSL I can convert it into BSL signs:

R& B ARE WATCHING A FOOTBALL (SOCCER) MATCH ON TV. THE TEAM B IS PULLING FOR JUST MADE A GOAL KICK, B HOWLS.

R; (In subtiles) B, your team's ten points behind, it's over before...I won't go there.

B: Just watch (team 1) will come back in the next half!

R SIGNS (http://www.aslpro.com/cgi-bin/aslpro/aslpro.cgi
http://www.aslpro.com/cgi-bin/aslpro/aslpro.cgi http://www.aslpro.com/cgi-bin/aslpro/aslpro.cgi)! SILENTLY LAUGHS.

B: (Signs while yelling at R) WHAT DO YOU MEAN I'M "IN DENIAL!"?!


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
R couldn't speak in real life because of a trach tube after coming out of a coma but I'm including the ASL for "SPEAK/TALK" http://www.lifeprint.com/asl101/pages-signs/t/talk.htm


note P in bsl looks like "word" in ASL http://www.aslpro.com/main/w/word.swf remember to tap bent fingers at extended index finger for ASL "word".

"Thank you" in ASL can also be signed starting with the fingers below the chin like in BSL http://www.lifeprint.com/asl101/pages-signs/g/good.htm

R: I believe http://www.aslpro.com/main/b/believe.swf in other http://www.aslpro.com/cgi-bin/aslpro/aslpro.cgi world.

R: All http://www.aslpro.com/main/a/all.swf that matters--is to see you lose!

R: I can't wait to get well, go home and invade the kitchen!http://www.aslpro.com/main/k/kitchen_a.swf

R Have you seen the commercials http://www.aslpro.com/main/c/commercial.swf for "Titanic Requium"? It was AWESOME!


R: I don't regret signing it better than having to whisper http://www.aslpro.com/main/w/whisper.swf It's great to to have another language http://www.aslpro.com/main/l/language.swf


R: I remember...crying... my greatgranda was a midwife

Daydream Believer and the Homegoing Theme
As of the begining of this post funeral plans for Monkees singer Davy Jones has not been set. According to family it will be private therefore the surviving member of the Monkees not attending is a means to keep it that way. But it does not mean we can't imagine what it would have been to have Davy Jones having a "Homegoing Celebration"-type funeral and public memorial services http://elegantmemorials.com/homegoing-service-celebration minus the Christian connotions (it can be any form of afterlife from any religion or spirituality).

Title: "Daydream Believer and the Homegoing Theme".

Author: mel-pa
Rating: PG
Summary: Fictionalized story of Davy Jones' "homegoing celebration"-type funeral (this story is modeled on a high profile and televised funeral).

Warnings: mild language.
Genre: Real-Person
Pairing: no pairing

Main Character: Davy Jones, but does that qualify?

TITLE CARD: FEBRUARY 29, 2012

TV SCREEN: BREAKING NEWS

Davy Jones, former lead singer of the 60s band the Monkees has died in Florida. An autopsy is scheduled for today...

an autopsy determined it was a massive heart attack toxicology will take six to eight weeks...One never knows what a toxicology report could reveal about a celebrity's potential drug use....

CUT TO CLOSE UP OF DAVY JONES' FACE AS RECORD PRODUCER CHIP DOUGLAS PROPOSES A SONG HE WANTS THE BAND TO COVER: "DAYDREAM BELIEVER". DAVY IS NOT A BELIEVER.

CHIP: No, Davy, I think you'll like this song.

WE CAN HEAR IT'S A COUNTRY/FOLK SONG.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4aG0pG4W-NI


PETER TORK SUDDDENLY REARRANGING THE SONG AS A POP ROCK SONG

PETER TORK: Now try it.

ON A SCREEN OF THE MONKEES EPISODES 'MAROONED MONKEES' AND ' COFFINS'

THE CAMERA PANS TO DAVY JONES ANNOYED FACE AS JONES RECORDS THE VOCALS, BUT STILL CAPTURES THE BITTERSWEET ESSENSE OF THE SONG.

SINGS SOFTLY INTO THE MICROPHONE

Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings
Of the bluebird as she sings.
The six o'clock alarm would never ring.
But it rings and I rise,

LOOKS UP AT SCREEN REFLECTING ON SECRETLY DATING OF LINDA HAINES--CAN DAVY BE OPEN ABOUT IT? Wipe the sleep out of my eyes.
My shavin' razor's cold and it stings.


BELTS THE WORDS OUT
Cheer up, Sleepy Jean.
Oh, what can it mean.
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen.

You once thought of me
As a white knight on a steed.
Now you know how happy I can be.
Oh, and our good times start and end
Without dollar one to spend.
But how much, baby, do we really need.

Cheer up, Sleepy Jean.
Oh, what can it mean.
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen.
Cheer up, Sleepy Jean.
Oh, what can it mean.
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen.

[Instrumental interlude]

Cheer up, Sleepy Jean.
Oh, what can it mean.
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen.
[Repeat and fade]

Madison Perry does Pink Floyd's D-Gil's 66th Birthday on YouTube
This is a fictional post on YouTube by an equally fictional gender ambiguous comedian named Madison Perry. Madison Perry has large grey slightly hooded eyes and full lips....

MADISON PERRY: Hi, I'm Madison Perry. Today (March 6th) is Pink Floyd guitarist's birthday so here is my tribute using a spoof of "Shine on you Crazy Diamond" http://empty-spaces4.livejournal.com/12176.html but I'm tweeking it for my own purposes. I'm not using a real guitar this is controler guitar and on the tv screen is Guitar Hero. Let's begin.

MADISON PERRY: Dine On You Famous Fatass

Remember when you were thin
You ran like the wind

MP: I wonder if Gilmour saw this part and thought "I couldn't run like the wind even when I was thin" But the good news is though we have the same exercise of choice: walking! Woo! Woo!

Dine on you famous fatass
Now there's a steak on your plate
Like you need to gain weight?
MP: You're right D-Gil doesn't need to gain weight. D Gil would be crossing over from nice looking thick to being a blob!

Dine on you famous fatass
You got lodged in the armchair
You stuck to the leather

MP: I hope it was a small chair. Baby's got back!
Grown horizontally

MP: Just enough.

Come on you eater of chocolate candy
Come on you eater
Of hot dogs
And sundaes

MP: Have you tried Nutrisystem's chocolate? It's awesome! So are Tofu Pups and sundaes made from soy ice cream!
And dine!

You reached to the freezer too soon
You cried for a spoon
Dine on you famous fatass
Hampered by clothes grown too tight

MP: Clothes grown too tight? Where? Wait a minute, let me adjust my D size compression binder. There. Let's continue.

Lost the talent to write
MP: I disagree, check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2H65mHd9Vk
Dine on you famous fatass
Well you wore out your britches
MP: And bought some new hot stitches!

With many fish dishes

MP: Adventurous? Put this on your table: http://www.vegieworld.com/cart/product_pages.asp?id=840

Screamed for some real cheeze
Come on you fatty
You eater of waffles
Come on you eater
Of pasta
And sauces
And dine!

MP: On whole grain waffles, pasta, I have recipes for the cheese and sauces that are da bomb! http://veggie.buntch.net/for-the-cheese-lovers/
and http://vegetarian.about.com/od/maindishentreerecipes/qt/vegpasta.htm

Nobody knows what you are
A walrus or car?

MP: No, Beyonce in a car, whoa!
Dine on you famous fatass
Pile on many more layers
Don't forget the tomatoes!
MP: Come on, tomatoes are good for you they have anti-oxidants, and vitamin C.

Dine on you famous fatass
And you'll bask in the dim glow
Of refridgerators
Eat until you burst

MP: OUCH!
Come on you big boy
You plus-sized guitarist
Come on you consumer of pork chops and Triscuits

MP: Try this recipe http://www.thevegancookbook.com/2009/02/barbecue-pork-chop.html with the whole grain pasta I've mentioned. Triscuits are a great wholesome snack!
And dine!

MADISON PERRY PULLS OUT A BIRTHDAY CAKE THAT IS SHAPED LIKE A FENDER GUITAR WITH A 66 NUMBER CANDLE ON IT.

MP: Yes, there is a recipe for this, too: http://vegetarian.about.com/od/desertrecipes/r/yellowcake.htm

With frosting, too: http://vegetarian.about.com/od/veganfrostingrecipes/Vegan_Frosting_Recipes.htm

Happy Birthday!

Levon
This post is a fictionalized story of the civil union ceremony of Elton John and spouse David Furnish during the holiday season 2005 up to the birth of their son Zach. I hope this list allows characters who are gay in real life!



Title: "Levon"

Rated PG-13 : For cocaine use

Pairing: Elton John/ David Furnish

TITLE CARD: DECEMBER 21, 2005 TIME: DAY PLACE: WINDSOR GUILDHALL

OUTSIDE THE VENUE HOLIDAY DECORATIONS, CHRISTMAS TREES, WREATHS, POINTSETTAS, HANUKKAH DECORATIONS, DECK OUT THE STREETS--BUT INSIDE WHITE LILLIES WERE PLACED AROUND THE HALLS BEFORE ELTON AND DAVID ARE TO EXCHANGE THEIR VOWS.

IT IS HISTORIC FOR ENGLAND--THE FIRST DAY SAME SEX COUPLES CAN REGISTER IN A CIVIL PARTNERSHIP. IT WILL BE A LOW KEY CEREMONY APPARENTLY NO GROOMZILLAS HERE. HITCHED, (BUT NOT FULL MARRIAGE. MAYBE SOMEDAY...) A STAR STUDDED WEDDING PARTY FOLLOWS THE HAPPY COUPLE IN. THE USHER CLOSES THE DOOR TO US. 30 MINUTES PASSED AND ELTON & DAVID EMERGE AS SPOUSE & SPOUSE. IT HAD BEEN RAINING EARLIER AND RICE IS TOSSED IN A HAIL OF GOOD LUCK.

CUT TO CIVIL PARTNERSHIP PARTY.

ELTON & DAVID ARE CUTTING AN APPLE ICE CREAM WEDDING CAKE.

DAVID: (Whispering) Pink champaign for the guests. Are you good?

WE SEE A FLASHBACK OF ELTON BOMBED OUT IN HIS ALCOHOL AND COCAINE ADDICTION DAYS.

ELTON: Sober table, Martinelli sparkling cider.

CUT TO ELTON & DAVID'S HOME. IS IT CONSUMING YOUR CIVIL PARTNERSHIP IF YOU'VE BEEN TOGETHER FOR 17 YEARS? THEY PASSIONATELY KISS READY TO UNWRAP THEIR HOLIDAY GIFTS.

FADE TO THE UKRAINE FOUR YEARS LATER.

ELTON AND DAVID ARE CELEBRATING THEIR ANNIVERSARY LOOKING FOR A CHILD TO ADOPT AND THEY FIND ONE. AN HIV-POSITIVE BOY NAMED LEV. WE HEAR "CAROL OF THE BELLS"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htef8Am-XxU&feature=related AS THE GOVERNMENT DENIES ELTON & DAVID ADOPTION BECAUSE OF ELTON'S AGE AND MARITAL STATUS (GAY UNIONS AREN"T RECOGNITIZED IN THE UKRAINE).

CUT TO BACK TO THEIR HOME IN LONDON.

BEFORE THEY MAKE LOVE....

DAVID: (As if he were speaking sweet nothings) Let's make a baby.

ELTON: How?

DAVID: Ready?

WE SEE A FLURRY OF SNOW FLAKES SWIRL ACROSS THE SCREEN.

AS CLASSIFIED AS A TOP SECRET PROJECT A CHILD IS CONCEIVED. ELTON & DAVID TAKE TURNS SPEAKING WITH THE SURROGATE MOTHER ABOUT THE PREGNANCY
ELTON EXCUSES SELF TO HAVE A SYMPATHY HURL IN THE MORNING http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Couvade_syndrome.

CUT TO A COLD RAINFALL SWIRLING ACROSS THE SCREEN. WE ARE NOT IN LONDON ANYMORE WE ARE IN CALIFORNIA USA IT DOESN'T SNOW IN LOS ANGELES--IT JUST RAINS! THE DECORATIONS OF THE SEASON ABOUND AS THE HOLIDAY TREES, WREATHS, MENNORAHS, LIGHTS ETC. FILL THE STREETS AND HOMES.

LEV WAS NEVER FORGOTTEN: ELTON HAS PROVIDED FOR THE CHILD FINACIALLY AND ELTON & DAVID HAVE FOUGHT TO HAVE THE UKRAINE'S ADOPTION LAW REPEALED.

WE HEAR ELTON'S SONG LEVON A TRIBUTE TO A FRIEND BUT IS IT ALSO NOW CONCERN ABOUT EJ'S CHILDHOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS FATHER WHOM HE WAS "PETROFIED OF" BEING REPEATED. HOW ABOUT STEPDAD FRED OR "DERF"--VERY SUPPORTIVE VERY CARING ELTON HAS THAT TO FALL BACK ON--SOME HOPE FOR THE BABY.

CUT TO ELTON HAVING WHAT APPEARS TO BE A VIOLENT OVERDOSE OF COCAINE--IN AN ERUPTION OF COCAINE BURSTING OUT OF EJ's BODY! ELTON ABRUPTLY WAKES UP. THANKFULLY IT WAS JUST A NIGHTMARE.

CUT TO A MALL.

ELTON & DAVID ARE SITTING AT A TABLE IN A FOOD COURT HAVING LUNCH. EJ REACCOUNTS THE DREAM. WE HEAR A "CANDLE IN THE WIND" RINGTONE. ELTON ANSWERS THE CELLPHONE. IT IS THE SURROGATE MOTHER.

DAVID: Elton, you must be psychic! It's time!

CUT TO HOSPITAL.

ELTON & DAVID DODGE PAPPARZI FOR THE COVER OF THE DELIVERY ROOM.

AFTER THE USUAL LONG HOURS OF LABOR WHICH SEEMS TO BE TAKING ITS TOLL ON ELTON AS MUCH AS THE SURROGATE MOTHER! THE BABY POPS OUT. ELTON CUTS THE UMBILICAL CORD. BOTH ELTON & DAVID TAKE THEIR SHIRTS OFF TO WELCOME THEIR SON AND TO BOND WITH HIM HOLDING THE NEW BABY TO THEIR CHESTS.

WE HEAR THE LINE FROM "LEVON" "HE BORN ON A CHRISTMAS DAY..."
CUT TO THE NURSERY THEY ARE FEEDING ZACHARY JACKSON LEVON FURNISH-JOHN BREAST MILK: FROM A BOTTLE (THEY WILL BE GETTING IT SHIPPED FED-EX STRAIGHT FROM THE SURROGATE MOTHER UNTIL ZACH IS WEANED).

MAKING LOVE? FORGET ABOUT IT! THEY'LL PROBABLY BE TOO TIRED! :)

Conrad Murray Convicted!
Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter November 7, 2011!

I heard online fans call the anniversary of MJ declared innocent of child molestation as Victory Day. I propose the anniversary of MJ's being cleared of all charges as Acquital Day so the anniversary of Murray's conviction can be designated as Victory Day, a victory not only for MJ, the family, friends and fans but a victory for those who were victimized by doctors who take advantage of people especially celebrities with drug dependency issues!

This Thanksgiving we can thank prosecuter David Walgren for putting the REAL turkey on the table! (as or your actual holiday meal I recomend Tofurkey a vegetarian turkey substitute! :))

CARTMAN PRODUCES A FEW COMPUTER PRINTOUT SHEETS.

CARTMAN: I carry these around just in case. Here are copies of Obama's selective service paperwork (pointing at the bottom of a sheet) and over here is a fake Social Security number!

KYLE: (Getting frustated at Cartman's shanagins) Do you accept Obama's birth certificate? Yes or no!

CARTMAN SHOVES THE PRINTOUT IN KYLE'S FACE. KYLE HAS HAD IT WITH CARTMAN.

KYLE: Get out of here, Cartman! Go play with Donald Trump!

Roses
Title: "Roses"

Summary: On Valentine's day 1964 (or 1965) a young mod named Jimmy Cooper attends a Who show. This story is inspired by Outkast's song and video "Roses". It also uses characters from the 1979 film "Quadrophenia".

Rated PG-13 for language and violence.

I don't own the film "Quadrophenia", nor Outkast's song and video "Roses" nor the Who.

Jimmy Cooper opens a book about the history of a local band called the Who
and finds an early picture-- with mods as their main fanbase.

Jimmy recalls life as a mod....

On stage the Who plays a show, on the floor mods dance. Keeping the band's rhythm is drummer Keith Moon---the mods "Biggest Flirt".

Chalky and Dave are primping in a mirror in a restroom. "Moonie" is primping, too between shows. Meanwhile on the street rockers are invading London on their motorbikes (in the US motorcycles). In a tight shot we see Jimmy's old friend Kevin.

Cut to Moonie returning to the stage winking at the Mods along the way. "Who" will be Moonie's Valentine?

Moonie is dressed as a mod girl on the drum set "blocked up" on "blues". Oh, yeah, when you're high on "blues" the mods are down with you. Moonie falls backwards as a result.

Jimmy is somewhat attracted to Moonie, but what about Stephanie? For Moonie what about Kim?
Moonie really is the "Biggest Flirt". Jimmy once screwed Stephanie in an ally during a riot between the Mods and the Rockers http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mods_and_Rockers. Stephanie never gave Jimmy another thought afterwards.

The Rockers burst into the dance hall and brawl with the Mods. Jimmy, Dave and Chalky grab a Rocker who turns out to be Kevin--Jimmy refuses to punch him!

"Who" would be Moonie's Valentine? Moonie finds roses in the band's dressing room with a card: "You're a crazy b____, but I love ya! John.

The End.

Holiday Rage
Holiday Rage

Happy Holidays from Butters in South Parks--save him from his own parents!



Holiday Rage

TIME: DAY. BIG GAY AL AN MR SLAVE'S HOME.

WE SEE SOMEONE COMING OUT OF A CHIMNEY. IT ISN'T SANTA CLAUS. BUTTERS EMERGES FROM THE FIREPLACE.

BIG GAY AL: Would you like some egg nog, Butters? You're doing a super job cleaning out the chimney. That's $3 an hour?

BUTTERS: Wh-o-oa! Does it have booze in it? I can get grounded if I come home drunk!

BIG GAY AL: No, no. It's non-alcoholic.

MR SLAVE: I would have been the designated driver.

BUTTERS: I'm just a kid...

MR SLAVE: I know, I was just jokin' with you...

BUTTERS: I meant being driven home by someone other than mom and dad. (Big Gay Al brings egg nog for all of them) Oh, thanks.

LATER. MR SLAVE SHAKES BUTTERS' HAND.*

MR SLAVE: Good luck with your business (In seconds his cellphone rings)
Hello? I got that job at Master and Servants Bondage Store!

CUT TO LATE IN THE AFTERNOON. BUTTERS ARRIVES HOME COVERED IN SOOT. HE GOES UPSTAIRS TO GET WASHED UP. HE IS AFRAID OF TRACKING SOOT INTO THE HOUSE AND ENDING UP BEING GROUNDED ESPECIALLY WHEN HIS PARENTS ARE PREPARING FOR THE HOLIDAYS. BUTTERS IS TAKING A SHOWER AND IS IN THERE A LITTLE LONGER BECAUSE THE SOOT IS HARDER TO WAS OFF. SUDDENLY LINDA COMES UPSTAIRS WITH MORE DECORATIONS.

BUTTERS: Oh, my God. More decorations? I thought mom was done up here!

BUTTERS SPEEDS UP WASHING HIMSELF, CLIMBS OUT OF THE SHOWER, AND TRIES TO ESCAPE.

LINDA: BUTTERS! WHY ARE YOU TAKING SO LONG TO SHOWER! IT ISN'T NORMAL!

CUT TO MR MACKEY'S OFFICE.

BUTTERS SITS IN THE CLIENT'S CHAIR. HE HAD TOLD MR MACKEY OF HIS PARENTS ABUSE.

MR MACKEY: M'kay, some people call getting angry during the holidays holiday rage. How about hitting a pillow to get you anger out, maybe that might help.
(Mr Mackey gets up to shake Butters' hand.) Good luck with your parents.

BUTTERS LEAVES THE OFFICE. SUDDENLY MR MACKEY''S CELLPHONE RINGS HE TESTED NEGATIVE FOR DRUGS. RECENTLY HE CAME CLOSE TO RELAPSE.

SHAKE HANDS WITH A CHIMNEY SWEEP AND YOU WILL HAVE GOOD LUCK? FOR REAL?

CUT TO BUTTERS' HOME HE PUTS ON A HOMEMADE GINGERBREAD MAN COSTUME. LINDA SEES THE COSTUME ,AND IS NOT IMPRESSED.

LINDA: BUTTERS! WHY ARE YOU WEARING THAT RAG! WHY DO YOU HAVE THOSE PIECES OF CLOTH ON YOUR SHIRT?!

CUT TO BUTTERS IN HIS ROOM TAKING UP MR MACKEY'S ADVICE AND PUNCHS A PILLOW. HIS MOTHER CAN HEAR IT THROUGH THE DOOR AND PUNISHS HIM FOR HIS "TANTRUM".

WHERE IS BUTTERS' GOOD LUCK?

OUTSIDE CARTMAN ARRIVES AT THE STOTCH'S HOME. HE PARKS HIS BIG WHEEL ON THE LAWN NEARLY KNOCKING OVER AN ELECTRIC LIGHT ANIMATED REINDEER. BUTTERS PARENTS GO BALISTIC.

BUTTERS IS WATCHING HIS PARENTS AND CARTMAN ARGUE LOUDLY WITH EACH OTHER FROM HIS BEDROOM WINDOW. CARTMAN SPOTS SOME WEEDS ;) IN THEIR YARD.

NEXT DAY. BUTTERS GOES UPSTAIRS BUT IS STOPPED BY HIS PARENTS. THEY ARE HAVING A HOLIDAY VISIT BY RELATIVES. THEY TRY TO HUG BUTTERS BUT HE RECOILS FEARING GETTING THEM DIRTY.
BUTTERS PARENTS GO BONKERS OVER HIS "RUDENESS". WE HEAR A KNOCK ON THE DOOR. IT IS CARTMAN.

CARTMAN: Ho, ho, ho! Season's Greeting! I brought you some chili!

LINDA AND STEPHAN/CHRIS: Why thank you. You shouldn't have! (We now hear them out of frame. Butters is watching from the top of the stairs)

LINDA: This is so good. (She is getting high)

STEPHAN: YEAH! THIS IS SO GOOD! REALLY GOOD!

CARTMAN IS HIDING IN THE KITCHEN POINTING A CELLPHONE AT LINDA AND STEPHAN/CHRIS GRINNING ABOUT PLANNING TO POST THIS ON YOUTUBE.

BUTTERS: (Smiling) Yeah, you shouldn't have. Maybe...

CUT TO BUTTERS IN HIS ROOM PLAYING VIDEO GAMES WEARING A SUIT CELEBRATING AN INDIRECT VICTORY FROM AN UNEXPECTED SOURCE--CARTMAN!

CUT TO THE NORTH POLE. SANTA'S WORKSHOP.

WE HEAR RUN DMC'S "CHRISTMAS IN HOLLIS" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OR07r0ZMFb8ONE OF SANTA'S ELVES IS CHECKING UP ON THE "NAUGHTY" KIDS VIA A GLOBAL MONITOR. HE SEES WHAT CARTMAN PULLED ON LINDA AND CHRIS/STEPHAN. THE ELF GOES THROUGH THE DATABASE DOCTORING THE LIST WITH CARTMAN'S NAME. BUT WHERE WOULD BUTTERS' NAME BE?

CUT BACK TO BUTTERS' HOME.

BUTTERS LOOKS UP FROM HIS VIDEO GAME AND SPOTS A LAP TOP ON HIS DESK WITH RIBBON AND A CARD.

TIGHT SHOT OF CARDS WORDS: GO TO YOUTUBE. A CHIMNEY SWEEP'S OWN GOOD LUCK FINALLY ARRIVES.

Today is Butter's birthday--September 11th. So I'm posting this story straight out of the headlines:

INTERIOR OF THE STOTCH'S HOME. TIME: DAY

LINDA STOTCH ANSWERS THE DOORBELL AND ACCEPTS A PACKAGE.
ON THE PACKAGE IT IS ADDRESSED TO BUTTERS FROM Bahir Hassam Abdul Hakeem
A BOY WHO BEFRIENDED BUTTERS BEFORE CARTMAN SCREWED IT ALL UP BY HOLDING HIS MUSLIM PARENTS HOSTAGE. APPARENTLY Bahir Hassam Abdul Hakeem HASN'T FAULTED BUTTERS.

LINDA: O-o-oh! What can it be?

UNFORTUNATELY CARTMAN IS VISITING.

CARTMAN: (Still paranoid) It's a trick!

BUTTERS: Knock it off, Cartman!

LINDA OPENS THE PACKAGE.

LINDA: It's a Quran! For your birthday, Butters, How nice!

BUTTERS: What's a Quran?

LINDA: It's the holy book of Islam, like the bible in Christianity and Judaism.

CARTMAN: It's Jihad how to book!

LINDA: Cartman!

LINDA: I'll put it away until your birthday Butters, so you can play with your friend.

CARTMAN WATCHS LINDA PLACE THE HOLY BOOK ON A SHELF. AFTER SHE WALKS AWAY CARTMAN CLIMBS UP AND TAKES IT.

CUT TO INTERIOR OF CARTMAN'S HOME. NEXT DAY.

CARTMAN IS TAPING UP A PACKAGE. LIANE APPROACHES HIM.

CARTMAN: Oh, M-u-u-uh-m!

LIANE: Yes, pookie?

CARTMAN: Can you mail this for me?

KYLE IS FURIOUS.

KYLE: Cartman, I can't believe you actually mailed a Quran to that sick bastard!

"Big Yellow Taxi"
Hi, this is a story of sex, drugs, and a big yellow taxi...

Kerry Perry begs a adult figure for tickets to the Raging Pussys concert and gets them!

Late that night, young woman enters Kerry's room...an older woman named Katlin.

Kerry: (Jublibant) O-o-o-h! I GOT THEM babe!

(CLOSE UP OF KATLIN GIVING KERRY A HUG AND KISS)

Katlin: (whispering) Happy anniversary. (OUTSIDE KERRY'S ROOM THE ADULT FIGURE DOES NOT SEE KATLIN).

TIME: DAY. PLACE: KITCHEN. KERRY IS AT A TABLE ON A CELLPHONE.

Kerry: Hey, Kyle! I got two tickets to the Raging Pussys show , ya wanna come?

BUT WHY ARE THERE TWO TICKETS AND THREE OF THEM?

CUT TO KYLE'S HOME

Kyle: Yes! I'll ask my mom if she can drive us!

Kerry: Cool!

KYLE ASKS SHEILA BUT SAYS GERALD IS GOING TO USE THE CAR. SO THE LAST RESORT IS TO CALL...CARTMAN.

Kyle: (Calling Cartman) Hey, Cartman, can your mom drive us to the Raging Pussys show?

CARTMAN AGREES

Kyle: See ya!

CUT TO KERRY'S HOME. TIME: AFTEROON, DAY OF SHOW.

TIGHT CLOSE UP OF CELLPHONE WE HEAR A RAGING PUSSYS RINGTONE. KERRY ANSWERS. IT IS KYLE.

Kyle: Uh, Kerry Cartman came over and he sounded like he's trying to weasel his way out of taking us to the, show. So I told him F@#% YOU!

KYLE AND SHEILA LOOK OUT THE WINDOW AS CARTMAN SHOWS UP IS ON HIS CELLPHONE TO LIANNE WHOM WE CAN TELL FROM CARTMAN'S BODY LANGUAGE IS COMFORTING HIM. KYLE AND SHEILA STICK THEIR FINGERS IN THEIR THROATS IN DISGUST.

SHEILA GETS ON THE CELLPHONE TO KERRY.

Sheila: Kerry? Look, come over, I'll call a cab and we'll all go!

Kerry: But how will you get a ticket?

Sheila: Maybe I'll find a scalper!

Kerry: Thank you! I'll be there in a few minutes! (Hangs up)

BUT WHAT ABOUT KATLIN?

Kerry: Katlin, what a way to sneak in!

WE SEE AN OLD PICTURE OF THE RAGING PUSSYS. KATLIN LOOKS LIKE ONE OF THE GUYS IN THE LINE UP--IT IS KATLIN WHEN SHE WAS A LIVING PERSON AND MALE. APPARENTLY, SHE TRANSITIONED http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transitioning_(transgender) IN DEATH.

ALL THE SAME THEY HAVE TO GET READY TO GO TO THE SHOW IN A HURRY.

CUT TO KYLE'S HOME. TIME: NIGHT

KERRY HAS ARRIVED AT KYLE'S HOME BUT CARTMAN IS STILL THERE.

Kerry: (to Cartman) Thanks a lot, asshole!

THE CAB PULLS UP. KERRY, KYLE, SHEILA, AND AN INVISIBLE KATLIN, ARE LEAVING AS IKE GREETS KERRY--AND KATLIN!

Ike: (to Katlin) Hi-i-i!

SHEILA IS BAFFLED, BUT KYLE IS WONDERING WHICH CELEBRITY IKE IS SEEING THIS TIME.

IKE CAN SEE DEAD CELEBRITIES, HOWEVER GENDERQUEER http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genderqueer KERRY CAN SEE DEAD TRANSPEOPLE.

DISSOLVE TO INTERIOR OF CAB. WE CAN SEE KERRY HOLD KATLIN'S HAND TRYING TO KEEP THE ACT HIDDEN FROM SHEILA.

KERRY DAYDREAMS ABOUT SELF AND KATLIN ON BEACH LIKE CHRIS ISAK IN "WICKED GAMES" VIDEO
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oaHHrNQVrg KERRY IN A SHIRT AND A BINDER WATCHS KATLIN CAVORT TUGGING HER BIKINI BOTTOM LIKE THE VIDEO. WE HEAR THE MYSTERIOUS, HAUNTING, SONG UNDERSCORE THEIR DESIRE AND DEVOTION FOR EACH OTHER...

Sheila: Kerry! Were here!

KERRY SNAPS OUT OF THE DAYDREAM.

EVERYONE OUT OF THE CAB.

THE GROUP GETS READY TO LINE UP AS SHEILA REALLY DOES SEEKS OUT A SCALPER TO GET A TICKET SO SHE CAN CHAPORONE THE KIDS.

WE ARE SHOCKED(?) TO HEAR CARTMAN'S VOICE. HE IS SCALPING TICKETS!

Kyle: You stood us up! So you can come here to sell tickets at a jacked up price--you bastard!

Cartman: Yeah, ya wanna buy a ticket, Mrs. Broflovski ? Only $70.

SUDDENLY NATHAN APPEARS.

Nathan: (Holding up tickets) $60!

Cartman: $50!

Nathan: $45 Goin once, going twice, sold!

SHEILA PAYS FOR THE TICKETS AND CARTMAN IS LEFT FUMING.

CARTMAN LOOKS AT THE UNSOLD TICKET AND DECIDES TO USE IT TO WATCH THE SHOW. A RAGING PUSSYS TICKET IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE.

INSIDE VENUE. KERRY, KATLIN, KYLE TAKE A SEAT. THEY ARE SPOTTED BY CARTMAN WHO SITS NEXT TO THEM. UNBELIEVABLE LIANNE IS ACCOMPANYING CARTMAN, MAYBE SHE DROVE HIM TO THE SHOW AS A RESULT HIS MANIPULTIVE BEHAVIOR.

Lianne: Kyle, would you like a hotdog?

Kyle: No, thank you.

Lianne: Why not?

Kyle: It might have pork. Is there anything else?

Lianne: I don't know maybe I can see if there is anything fitting the dietary law.

LIANNE GETS UP TO GO TO THE CONCESSION STANDS. CARTMAN WAITS UNTIL SHE IS OUT OF EARSHOT.

Cartman: Goddamn it, Kyle, that's the last time I'll go with a Jew to a show!

NOW THEY ARE JOINED BY STAN.

Stan: I never thought I'd get here.

Kyle: Where were you? I've been trying to reach you but you weren't home.

Stan: I was visiting Jimmy and Timmy at summer camp...so many mosquitoes...I've never seen so many bloodsuckers since the Michael Jackson trial.

THE LIGHT DIM AS THE SHOW STARTS

Lead Singer: We want to dedicate this tour to our late drummer Keif who od'd in the flat of another dead rocker...

KATLIN FEELS HONORED ALTHOUGH INVISIBLE TO MOST OF THE LIVING WORLD

THE RAGING PUSSYS LAUNCH INTO THEIR MUSIC.

DISSOLVED TO WELL INTO THE SHOW.

KATLIN BEGINS TO LOSE HER INHABITIONS AS IF LOSING HER INHABITIONS WEREN'T THE NORM AS A LIVING PERSON. SHE STRIPS DOWN TO HER UNDERGARMENTS! HA HA! NO ONE CAN SEE THIS! THE ULTIMATE PRANK! IF ONLY THERE WERE A STRIPPER POLE AROUND!

THE RUGING PUSSY'S LEAD GUITARIST PUTS A CIGARETTE IN HIS MOUTH AS THE LEAD SINGER LIGHTS IT, THE LEAD GUITARIST ARCHES HIS EYEBROWS LIKE GROUCHO MARX.

Psychological Burqa
"Psychological Burqa"
Is this appropriate for the HHP list?

Earlier this month I saw an episode of "Issues" with Jane Velez Mitchel and sh eand the panel were discussing a case of a model found burnt in a dumpster which she refers to as part of the War Against Women. Mitchel expressed anger at what she rightfully calls a "psychological burqa" (no offense to Muslems) the restrictions placed on women allegedly to "be safe" from male-perpetrated violence. Mostly enforced by other women so they can avoid feeling vulnerable.

These restrictions in reality simple don't work. I feel the psychological burqa perpetuates violence against women by reenforcing women's class citizenship in society.

We need alternatives to the ineffective and demeaning restrictions on women and we need them now!

Like TREATING WOMEN AS EQUALS in the long run and condition women to fight like Hot Head (maybe not so literally in non-immenent situations) in the meantime!

Below is an excerp from that show:

PATSY WATKINS, MOTHER: They`ve got to find who did this to my baby. They`ve got to find who did this. Please.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I bet they will. I have a feeling.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

WATKINS: I lost my baby. She was only 26 years old. I`m just so mad that somebody out there knows something. My little girl left with somebody. I`m just so angry.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Did Paula Sladewski leave a Miami club with her killer? Witnesses told police they saw her with an unidentified man. We are hoping to get a police sketch with him in the next couple of days. We`re going to bring it to you as soon as we get it.

Meanwhile, we`re all wondering: why haven`t more people come forward who saw something? Phone lines, however, lighting up.

Shiva, Illinois, your question or thought, ma`am?

CALLER: Hi, Jane. I am not blaming the victim at all, but there is an old John Wayne movie that says -- where he says, "Dance with the one that brung you."

My question is, when are these young pretty women going to realize they cannot be out by theirselves even for a walk down their own street? They need to pair up.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well...

CALLER: When I went to college, we were told, "Pair up at night."

VELEZ-MITCHELL: OK. I think.

CALLER: "Don`t walk by yourself."

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Shiva, I think you raise an interesting point. Here`s my point, though, about that, Judge David Young. I don`t want to go back to the 18th century, where when I have to go to the bathroom, a guy has to escort me to the ladies` room, in order to protect me from another man.

How would you like to live in that world, where, if you want to walk down the street, you have to ask a person like me to help you go to your car, because another person like me might attack you?

Aren`t we really putting women in a psychological burka, when in fact, what we should do is address why are men so angry? Why are men killing women and setting them on fire? What`s going on with our culture, and that`s why we`re very delighted to have a very special guest who`s going to join us in a little bit to talk to us about that, somebody who`s truly extraordinary. But I ask you, Judge, right now.

JUDGE DAVID YOUNG, TV/RADIO PERSONALITY: Well, it`s a sad state of affairs. Unfortunately, women are being abused, whether they cause it themselves or society caused it.

In this case it`s particularly troubling, because, Jane, you had an innocent woman who only wanted to have a good time at a Lady Gaga concert with her boyfriend, and this horrendous thing happened to her.

You know, the way that I`m looking at this murder is that this was a professional done it, because the person had to know that by singing the body the way that person did, there`s going to be no evidence, no proof, no way that they could actually have any type of forensic evidence that could ever be deduced for any type of investigation. It`s absolutely disgraceful and disgusting and sickening.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Yes. And it didn`t happen at the Lady Gaga concert. That was a couple of days before. But I get your point, absolutely.

Here`s my big issue. Somebody had to have seen something. You cannot tell me that Paula was murdered, her body transported, tossed into a Dumpster, set on fire in a major metropolitan area and nobody saw anything? Paula left Club Space in downtown Miami just before 7:30 a.m. Her body was discovered 14 hours later, 12 miles away, Judge David Young.

YOUNG: You have to believe that maybe the bartenders or somebody who was working there was not necessarily inebriated or on drugs or overdid, overdid it with alcohol, saw something, or people walking the streets, people who were out there. Somebody in Miami, my hometown, must have seen something. And they must have the courage of their conviction to come forward, because you`re talking about an innocent life that was taken.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Yes. And Steve Kardian, you have actually done an undercover investigation into the dangers of nightclubs for "Inside Edition."

And you actually went into a New York City hot spot with hidden cameras, and in just one hour -- here you are, partying it up in a New York city nightclub -- five different women accepted drinks from you, a total stranger.

So that, of course, raises the possible that somebody may have dropped a date rape drug into a drink, and that could have impacted her decision making.

KARDIAN: Absolutely, Jane. When I went into that club I was looking for a couple of things. I was looking for what we referred to as a soft target. I was looking for women that were alone, that looked a little bit bored, that had maybe an empty drink. And those are the women I approached.

I didn`t approach the women that were with a group of other people or with a boyfriend. You know, I lecture across the country to women of all ages. And I have to say that anywhere...

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Why don`t you lecture to men across the country of all ages and tell them to cut this out?

KARDIAN: I do it as well. And what I tell everybody is that wherever you go, whether it be New York, L.A. or a small suburb of Tennessee that, if you drop your guard low enough, there is someone waiting to take advantage of you.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: I am so sick and tired of living like this. I really am. You know, I`ve been a journalist for 30 years, and I`ve been covering these murders for 30 years. And I am so sick and tired of it being business as usual, another murder. I mean, it`s an obscenity.

And I think that the problem here is that there is -- there`s a cultural dysfunction that has occurred. In other words, this is more than just a series of individual murders. It is a cultural dysfunction. We have to look at all of this behavior together and say, "Are we creating a culture where this is tolerated and accepted?"

And I`ll throw it to Dale Archer. Dr. Dale, psychiatrist.

ARCHER: Yes, I think that the issue here, Jane, is that there is definitely a big difference between men and women. And men, if we go back a hundred thousand years ago to the hunter/gatherer days, men were the hunters, the fighters, the warriors. And women stayed at home and were in the village, and they had to solve problems through rational thought.

So I think that the discrepancy now in a civilized society is very, very apparent. And I think you`re right on target. Women can be the answer to this solution by continually making the point, as you do, that the violence is mainly man against man and man against woman. But men are the operative problem because of the genetics that go into it, but we have thinking brains that can overcome our instinct. And we have to appeal to that nature now.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: And I want to say I`m not attacking men. I`m -- listen, who is devastated? The brothers, the fathers, the sons. This is about all peaceful people coming together and saying, as Howard Beale said, I`m sick and tired of this, and I`m not going to take it anymore.

And we`ve got an amazing person coming up to address the big issue, the spiritual issue. Up next, a very, very guest. Delighted to say we`re going to have author and renowned spiritual teacher, best-selling author Marianne Williamson. She will join me next for an in-depth conversation about the war on women.

And then we`re going to talk about Mitrice. This is a woman who is missing, and her dad is desperate, absolutely desperate, to find this woman.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MARIANNE WILLIAMSON, SPIRITUAL TEACHER: I want to talk to you this morning about your life. How many times do you feel, well, I don`t have the life that you want, so I`m going to imagine the life that I do want.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: That is internationally-acclaimed spiritual teacher Marianne Williamson. I am thrilled and honored to have her as a guest here on ISSUES tonight.

Marianne, thanks for coming by. You are famous for many things, but among them "A Course in Miracles." You have a new project, "Sister Giant: Rousing the Sloping Giant of American Womanhood." I love that. I do want your insight into what we as women can do to combat the horrific violent crime against women that we report on every day. It`s gotten so bad we here on ISSUES have actually coined the term, "the war on women." Your thoughts?

WILLIAMSON: Well, you know, the problem is that we are always playing catch-up. We`re always in a reactive state when something horrible happens like the two murders -- or the one murder, hopefully not the murder of the other woman that you`ve mentioned.

We need to go back to what you yourself mentioned as a cultural dysfunction. We can`t just deal with this specific horrible thing that happens or that specific. We have an epidemic of violence against women and girls in our society, from partner stalking. We have a domestic slave trade, sex trafficking, domestically as well as internationally that we want to deal with.

And I think that we want to go back to some causal roots. We have to acknowledge, Americans need to acknowledge and to recognize, with all the shame and horror, that we have a very violent society. When you look at the violence on television, the violence on video games, the violence in our movies, the gratuitous violence against women on primetime television.

And there is such a thing as healthy shame. I think as we have this conversation and recognize all the ways in which each of us can play a part, I think, in so many of elements of our society, in recognizing that we`ve made violence sexy, that we`ve given almost a glamour to it in far too many cases, and then we act so astonished when it turns into this sort of societal pathology that truly leads to horrific things like these murders. I think that`s one thing.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: You have said what I have thought for so many years. We women have to stop subsidizing the violence against us. If we do not want violence in our lives, let`s stop watching all these violent shows. Let`s stop going to these movies that sexually torture women. These "Saw" type flicks that are horrific.

WILLIAMSON: It is so true. You know, there`s one television network that actually labels itself television for women. And there is more -- there`s so much gratuitous violence against women on this television network. And I think that we do need to speak up, and we do need to call sponsors, and we do need to be having this conversation.

And I also think that as -- while this is happening, we need a greater consciousness of the danger to women. I think it`s true what both your professionals and one of your callers said, which is a woman should not be, while this situation is the way it is -- a woman should not be walking alone in these situations.

Even, too, like one your criminal investigators said earlier in the program, that if a woman is even with another woman, statistically she will -- she does not stand the same chance of being accosted. And I think we need to teach our girls this. We need to tech our boys this.

You know, you said something earlier about we don`t want to go back to the century when men, you know, accompanied women. Well, the truth of the matter is, Jane, the violence is the same.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Yes.

WILLIAMSON: And I think -- I think too many men think that almost it would appear too macho if they said to the woman, "Let me walk you to your car."

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, you raise some fascinating points. We`re going to take a quick break. Stay right there. Because I think we have to evolve forward. And you`re going to stay with us as we try to help a desperate father find his precious missing daughter who disappeared in Malibu.
