About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most, if not all readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what is important.

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A disturbed and manic online stalker and cyberbully has made it impossible for me to post about family, my son, life in my part of New York...so I stopped (for the most part), and I mostly reblog and repost what I feel is important, necessary or close to my heart. As for the stalking sociopath, she can go to hell for harassing me and my family since mid-2008. You can't scare me offline with a few lame threats and dozens of pages of defamation, abuse, depravity and libel. I'm bitchy like that. ;)
(Anyone who knows me knows I'm not actually a bitch, but let's allow this psychopath to think I'm a bitch to her blackened heart's content—it seems to make her feel she has some sort of control over me…and it does not.)

If you read a story and you feel moved in any way, comment. Comments are more than welcome.

Unlike those online who lie and hide behind fake photos and insanely fabricated stories, I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

Feel free to email me if you have a story or cause you would like shared, especially if it pertains to animal rights, liberation, veganism, animal welfare, health and well-being, geekery, Macs and computer dorkiness, music, lowbrow art, kitchy stuff, skateboards, the beach, swimming, diving, NYC, beading (it's my hobby), recipes (love to cook, especially if I made the recipe up myself!), VEGAN!, ALF, Sea Shepherd, Action for Animals, NIO, 269Life and/or anything you think I might enjoy or others might—you never know. It doesn't always have to be serious. Hilarious stories, local NY, funny videos or photos, photobombs (especially if they contain pets!)...I might be partially censored, but I'm not closed down!

Please, join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and follow them and The Barbi Twins on Twitter and Facebook.

For the Oceans,

I Know She's an Avid Reader…

To The Improper Adoptee: Are there any questions you'd like to ask? Any unanswered tidbits about my life you've yet to twist and fabricate for your Creepy Damaged Goose Fairy Tales book? Let me know, and I'll just post whatever it is you're aching to know about, because you're really grating on my nerves with your sick, fucked up shit lately, and I'm just about ready to hit PRINT and drop off a huge folder to the local precinct and call it a day, capiche?

He Makes Emo Guys Cry.

Look at that hair.
Cry more, emo boys.

Sirius Radio, You Really Blew It.


Oh well. It was good while it lasted, but this relationship isn't going anywhere, and it can't, seeing as you've changed so much. I asked you months ago, would you be making radical changes? I asked you before I signed up and paid ahead for a year of service, because you said you'd not be dumping my favorite channels, but oooh, you did. You lied. You and your little puppy dog logo. I think it's time you updated your look, Sirius/XM, and put the puppy out of the picture just as you did to so many good channels and DJ's. I'm only hanging around, like that poor little puppy, to see if you change your tune. I filed my complaint/feedback the afternoon you removed BOOMBOX. 27 minutes on the phone with a rep, detailing every reason why I signed up, and why I should cancel, why I shouldn't pay for most of your channels now and why I did pay previously. I hope you pay attention to your customers, because I know it's not just the electronica listeners (Boombox, Area 33), or the punk listeners, or even the hard rock listeners who are really ticked off. It's people who span all genres of music. They're all disgruntled. No one is happy. It's time to sit around that big table and think.

Here's a taste of what's on the net about this disaster.

Sirius-XM Merger Kills Punk, Promotes AC/DC
By Scott Thill EmailSeptember 19, 2008 | 8:00:00 AM

Wonder powers, deactivate! If you were a Sirius or XM subscriber, as well as a fan of Fugazi, Dead Kennedys, The Clash, Ramones, Black Flag and more, then you're probably not too happy that the twin titans of satellite radio merged. Because all of the bands you love will be replaced with one you can hear on any rock station on any given day of the week.

Sirius and XM to Begin Music-Station Merge November 12th

11/7/08, 1:50 pm EST


On November 12th, both Sirius and XM Radio listeners might find that their favorite channel is misplaced or even missing as the two satellite radio companies begin to merge their stations. The consolidation was first revealed on XM Escape, which announced in a promo that it would make the leap from Channel 78 to 28. The merge date was also confirmed by a DJ on Sirius’ the Pulse. The merge actually started in the weeks following the XM/Sirius deal, as Howard Stern was added to XM’s lineup after being Sirius’ marquee star. Neither Sirius nor XM has announced the realigned station breakdown, but Sirius’ oldies icon Cousin Brucie will reportedly become available on XM, meaning XM’s own oldies station is in danger of becoming dead air. Other genres across the board will also face similar showdowns between their cross-radio counterparts. As long as we can still find Eminem’s Shade 45 station (where he tends to announce major career news) and Bob Dylan’s dispatches, we should be okay. After years in anti-trust limbo, Sirius and XM finally joined forces in July to form Sirius XM.

Boombox went off the air on Sirius XM in the early morning hours of Wednesday, November 12th, 2008 after almost three amazing years. I designed Boombox as my ideal radio station - all breaks, all the time. It came on the air after I wrote an epic proposal for Sirius Satellite Radio about improving their dance lineup. As a result of unbelievable support and trust from senior management - especially Senior VP of Music Programming Steve Blatter - I was privileged to be able to be a key player in getting three new channels - Chill, Area and Boombox - on the air. Boombox started as a pure breaks channel but, after some (as it turned out, much-needed) guidance from Blatter, moved in a more breakbeat/rock remix/bootleg/mashup direction after the first year. 

I’m extremely proud of all the great music we played and for all the people who have written me to thank me for turning them on to artists and mixes they would have never heard without Boombox. It was a great run on a big stage and I am thankful for every day Sirius management let us get away with airing a whole station with nothing but the best remix-tronica available.

I especially want to thank Steve Blatter (for giving us the green light and then a massive amount of support), Jeff Regan (for being the glue that held the whole thing together and for being a damn fine programmer), Geronimo (for helping get Boombox, Chill and Area on the air and for never wavering in his support for my crazy ideas), DJ Icey (for doing “Automatic Static” on Boombox every week without fail - a truly legendary radio show), Gregg Steele (for supporting the channel and empowering us to play what we thought was best), S-Dot and Vanessa (for all their essential behind the scenes work), Kool DJ Red Alert (for his short-lived but great midday show) and everyone else who pitched in to make Boombox happen every day. I especially would like to thank all the wonderful Boombox listeners. We would have been nothing without our faithful and ever watchful audience of super cool cats.

I will continue to play great music on Sirius XM as my Zeros+Ones show moves over to Alt Nation (and maybe even gets a new name) in the weeks ahead.

Pure Rock News: Mötley Crüe announce 2009 North American tour

A Colorful Life


New York Daily Photo: A Colorful Life

My son's father is a Deadhead. I am not. Harry's daddy just left to run the soundboard for a Dead style jam band that is playing out here on Long Island tonight. My son is sitting beside me, using his computer, an eMac, playing Dr. Suess's ABC's. I was browsing New York Daily Photo, and I came across this photo just as my fiancé was leaving to do the gig.

People stereotype Deadheads all the time. People always assume hippies do drugs. This blog is a must read. The owner of this colorful bus is Kat O'Sullivan, and if anyone is living life to it's fullest, it's Kat. You could say she's already lived life to it's fullest. 


As an artist and a supporter of the DIY community, I am in awe of this woman. I'm jealous! She's doing what she wants to, what she loves and she doesn't have to ask for help from anyone. She makes wonderful handmade clothing; I am very partial to handmade arm warmers and cuffs in the inter, and hers are just so colorful.


Last, but not least, she is amazing. She worked with Mother Teresa. She dumped a job with no meaning and hitchhiked to Timbuktu. You just can't make things like that up. This is a site you must check out when you have some free time. Not many people can just get up, leave it all behind and do what she's done.

I know this blog isn't written well, but I had to type it up quickly since my son needs some help with the mouse. He's 22 months old, and his mousing skills are not the best…yet. When they are, I can't let his computer near the cable connection.

From The Daily Bastardette: ANNOUNCEMENT: HATE NOT WELCOME HERE

The Daily Bastardette: ANNOUNCEMENT: HATE NOT WELCOME HERE

(I will get to this ASAP)
UPDATE: I just don't have time to blog about this nutter twice.
Here's the link to the original information, and from there you can find all the facts on this woman who has stalked me for so long, it's utterly outrageous.


This is a doozy. This woman is stalking me. Now she's rabid. RABID!
I kid you not. It's not even funny. She won't stop harassing me, and others.




To her, I say:



I just don't have time to blog about her now.

That Big, Mean Pot Keeps Bullying the Kettle and Calling it BLACK!

OH MY! Her *blog is so full of hate, too! It's so...IMPROPER!
THIS WOMAN is a nutter. E-bullies are NOT always mentally insane. What is pitiful about this one in particular is that she's 49 years old, single, with a daughter she had when she was around 27 years old (most likely from a fling with some random guy, because trust me, this is one hell of a nutter) and she spends all her time claiming she's soooo busy, yet she stalks people online and then blogs about them, with HATE and libel. Doesn't she have anything else to do?

I asked this wackjob to cut the shit, take the libel down, remove copyright infringement and cease and desist all harassment. What did she do? Escalate! Yeesh! Some of her stories are so out there, she must have one hell of a stash up there in New England. I don't just mean green stuff either. She must go into the woods with a wicker basket and come out with one full, if you know what I mean.

Fucking people...crazy in the coconut.

*NOTE: The Improper Adoptee changes her blog's LABELS to try to break LINKS to her blog and to specific blog entries that are libelous. If any links to her LIBELog do not work, just type in http://abolishadoption.blogspot.com/

Shocking. MySpace is CENSORING users' blogs and bulletins. What a surprise!

Not shocked.

A little Ha Ha from The Gothamist on Palin…oh, oh I'll Miss Her.

Ha ha ha, NO. I hope a wolf pack bites her ass off.

As we know, I LOVED Sarah Palin. PFFFT! Thank goodness this freak isn't getting into the White House. WHEW! I was worried, yet deep down, I knew that McCain couldn't win with this wacko as his running mate. Choosing her was his biggest mistake, and THANK GOD! I knew people that were on the fence, and once Palin was at McCain's side, blabbering with that creepy smile, not one was still even thinking McCain. Ha! Cry more, Sarah.

Cry, Republicans, cry. Boo hoo hoo. But do us all a favor and cry in your own room or in the restroom. We're all so tired of hearing you people whine since the election. Fair is fair; what did you want? Another theft? Seriously now, you can't pull that off twice in a row. Maybe next time, crybabies.


I just read this and found some of the comments amusing. Enjoy.

Palin Calls Post-Election Attackers "Jerks"

2008_11_palin2.jpgSarah Palin came out swinging yesterday at insider attacks against her that surfaced after Tuesday's election calling them "cowardly." She also said that those from the McCain camp who leaked out implications that she didn't know which countries were involved in NAFTA and whether or not Africa was a continent were "jerks" and that the comments were taken out of context. Other campaign aides came to Palin's back yesterday, no more than McCain adviser Nicole Wallace. Wallace made headlines in the waning days of the campaign as internal tensions boiled over into the press by saying she would lie under a bus if those in her camp were throwing her under one. Yesterday she said that Palin was “perhaps the most un-diva politician I've seen" and that "the only thing I’ve seen her ask for is a diet soda.” Palin later confirmed the diet soda comment, specifying it was a Diet Dr. Pepper.
