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.

Rockin' to the Imagination Movers!

This is my son's latest, most favorite show, and it's on the Disney channel. For once, I can actually tolerate a daytime child's show without wanting to slam my head into a wall. This is a show for mom's who cannot even stand 5 seconds of Barney, and who feel they might need to throw the TV out if they see one more episode of most of what's on NOGGIN lately — and this is coming from a mom who used to like Noggin's programming! I liked The Upside Down Show, and 64 Zoo Lane is wonderful (though you need to DVR it or tape it since it's only on in the middle of the night, or rather, the pitch black morning), and I'll admit that at first I thought Little Bear was totally "faggy," but I like the show now that I've paid attention and gave it an honest chance, and like it even more when it's calm, kind stories put my son to sleep for nap time. But if I see some of the other shows one more time, I might need sedation. ;) Noggin shouldn't have put LazyTown on in the morning; my son hates it. He doesn't care for Franklin either. But Noggin putting Lazytown in the 10am slot made me have to find a show for my son's after breakfast lazy time, and that's how we found The Imagination Movers, so thank you, Noggin, for changing the line-up and making us change the channel!

You can go to Disney's website for the Movers if you want more info, check out the bios, see videos, hear songs from the show or just sit with your child in the Kids Only section.

About Imagination Movers

The Movers Rich, Scott, Dave and Smitty -- began in New Orleans in 2003 and now are fast-rising stars on the national kids music scene thanks to their combination of radio-friendly songs, kid-friendly themes and dynamic live shows.

Mover live shows are instant parties. "There's no guitar solos or fancy playing, but by trial and error, and by playing 250+ shows all over the country, we've figured out our identity and created the prototype for what we hope will be this big, multiple 18-wheeler arena rock concert for kids and parents. We basically want to take the Van Halen 1979 World Tour production values and do it for kids," sayeth Mover Rich.

So . . . catch the Movers on satellite radio as they are on heavy rotation on XM, Sirius and now - Radio Disney. On XM, they have launched five songs to the top of the charts, including the recent No. 1 hit "Farm." But they don't stop there - IM has cracked college radio charts at Emerson College, Drexel University, Rice University, Muhlenberg College and others. The Movers have even gone international: their music is played on digital radio throughout England and Canada; and Happy Rainbow in Beijing, China.

They've also won 14 national music awards and were named a Parenting Pick by Parenting Magazine, and won a John Lennon Songwriting Contest award for the song "Looking Out the Window." An ongoing tour of U.S. cities creates new Movers fans (affectionately known as Gearheads) in the wake of every show.

Movers audio and video encourages kids to reach high, think big, work hard and have fun! The Movers themselves are leading by example as they captivate new fans daily with their winning sound and style.
