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.

Lollapalooza 2009: Just Shoot Me Now…

A) I can't afford it,
B) I can't take Harry and
C) I can't leave Harry in NY while I go.

Why can't Lollapalooza tour like it did way back when? Why can't it be in New York? ARGH.

August 7-9. It’ll be held at Grant Park in Chicago, Illinois. Thanks, Lolla-people. TOO FAR AWAY!

Normally I'd not give a crap, but this time the lineup is MY lineup. This year's Coachella Festival is not my kind of lineup. Even this year's Ultra Fest isn't enough to make me feel I'm missing out. Lollapalooza is just what I'd want to have here close by, and the reason is the following bands:

  • Tool
  • Jane's Addiction
  • The Beastie Boys

You also get The Killers, Depeche Mode and Lou Reed to name a few.

Add ΝIИ and I'd just have to find a way.

Jane's and Nine Inch Nails are touring, but the chances of getting tickets to Jones Beach are slim to NONE and It's NOT HAPPENING. I've been through this before, and I know I'm just not going to get to go. Pshh. I'd settle for the NIN show in Wantagh. Get me tickets.


  1. Lollapalooza-that takes me back.

  2. I know, can you believe how long ago that was?
    That's the last place I'd want it to be in NY, though. Downing Stadium probably crumbed afterwards.

    That was over 10 years ago, I just can't remember what year and I'm not going to dig through ticket stubs anytime soon… or even Google it now.

    p.s. I knew you were my reader from you know where ; )

  3. I think that was either '94 or '95.

    Ticket stubs? And I thought I was a pack rat!
