Defining boogie-woogie

Boogie-woogie is that sound from the south that makes you snap your fingers; bop your head; warm your spirit. Boogie-woogie is apart of jaz? It has that jazzyness? Boogie-woogie was head banging before hair metle was a thing. Boogie-woogie is what Fats Domino mastered. I cannot define it so I’ll let the NYT do that. Domino, who died in Louisiana at 89 , both embodied and extended the New Orleans piano heritage of styles that are at once unswervingly propulsive and floridly improvisational; he also gave early rock ‘n’ roll an infusion of New Orleans syncopations. His songs, most of them written with his longtime producer and bandleader Dave Bartholomew, were often concise sketches of romantic strife involving heartbreak, betrayal, loneliness and spite.
But he sang them with such sly good humor in his voice and his timing that they sounded like a good time (2017.)

This #crossfit woman put herself threw Ashley Graham’s gym routine and it kicked her butt

This woman put herself through Ashley Graham’s gym routine and found herself tired. Beyond tired? Yes.
Jordan Shalhoub, 27, is no stranger to putting herself through rigorous workouts for the sake of her fitness-focused YouTube channel, having tried out the routines of everyone from Demi Lovato to Chris Pratty. This one was the most extreme.
Jordan began the video for her 122,987 subscribers emphasizing that fitness and health routines manifest differently on every body type.

She noted that this is something she wants all of her followers to be aware of, no matter what their own routine or body shape.

‘I really wanted to emphasize this week that being fit and being healthy looks different and means different things for everybody. Despite whatever I’m doing for my own personal journey, I still want this to be a body positive channel,’ she announced. Watch it below.

Blackish star Tracee Ellis Ross should not wax her nose hair with a swab – it is nasty

My god! I must declare my feelings with this story from the Huffington Post! Icky and stupid!
Blackish star Tracee Ellis Ross showed her Instagram followers just how she handles unsightly nose hair Tuesday, and it aint fun.
Apparently she puts hot wax on a Q-tip and sticks it up her nostril and then takes it out.
“HAS ANYONE EVER HAD THEIR NOSE HAIRS WAXED? ~ let this be a lesson to you: just say no,” Ross captioned her video.
No Ms. Ross, I have never had my nose hair waxed off – because I want to smell afterward. Wouldn’t that mess up your sniffer?
While this question cannot be answered at this time – nor will it ever – I can tell you that”Most experts agree that you shouldn’t remove your nose hairs, because they act as a filtration system that keeps out germs, while also helping to trap dust and debris . There’s also an added risk when you pluck, wax or shave nose hairs.
According to Anthony Del Signore, MD, assistant professor in the department of otolaryngology and director of rhinology and endoscopic skull base surgery at Mount Sinai Beth Israel when you remove your nose hair “You do remove that level of protection into the nasal cavity whether it be particles or foreign objects getting in there.”
“The hairs emanate from follicles in the skin and sometimes bacteria can get in there, especially for people that shave their nose hairs or pluck them. It sort of leaves an entry for bacteria and for infection,” he said. “That usually manifests itself with increasing redness or tenderness and pain.

He explained that the redness is a sign of cellulitis (a potentially serious bacterial skin infection ) or folliculitis (a skin condition where hair follicles become inflamed ). These conditions can lead to pus, the formation of abscesses and skin that is warm to the touch.

Our future president wrote a letter to Richard Branson – a scathing letter – in 2004, proving that his contempt for respect is not an act

Future President Donald J. Trump wrote a letter to Richard C. Branson showing his well-known bullying tacktics. This letter shows me that his tactics are nothing new.

From Business Insider:
In Branson’s new memoir, ” Finding My Virginity ,” Branson published the letter and his response in full. Trump’s letter, dated November 12, 2004, is below.

“Dear Richard:

“I see that you are trying to take me on with your nasty comments, much the same way as Mark Cuban had tried. As you know, Mark went down in flames, his show was unceremoniously cancelled, never to return again. In any event. now that I have watched your show, I wish you came to me and asked my advice – I would have told you not to bother. You have no television persona and, as I found out with others a long time ago, if it’s not there there’s not a thing in the world you can do about it.

“At least your dismal ratings can now allow you to concentrate on your airline which, I am sure, needs every ounce of your energy. It is obviously a terrible business and I can’t imagine, with fuel prices etc., that you can be doing any better in it than anyone else. Like television, you should try to get out of the airline business too, as soon soon as possible! Actually, I wonder out loud how you can be anywhere close to a billionaire and be in that business. Perhaps the title of your show, The Rebel Billionaire , is misleading?

“In any event, do not use me in order to promote your rapidly sinking show – you are a big boy, try doing it by yourself!

“Sincerely,

“Donald J. Trump

@dove made a major mistake with an add on @facebook

Fashion company Dove made a moronic mistake with a video that shows an african-american woman removing a shirt revealing a white woman. In an emailed statement Sunday, Dove said the ad, a three-second video clip, “did not represent the diversity of real beauty which is something Dove is passionate about and is core to our beliefs, and it should not have happened … we apologize deeply and sincerely for the offense that it has caused. If you cannot see the video because of blindness the ap describes it:
“The ad was a gif showing a black woman taking off her brown shirt to reveal a white woman, who then took off her lighter-colored shirt, revealing a woman of color in a slightly darker shirt. While that post has been taken down, there are screenshots from the ad circulating broadly online. One is a group of four images from the ad that show only the black woman turning into the white woman” (ap, 2017.)

wtf are Spray-On Rainbow HEADBANDS

Apparently people on social media are in love with Spray-On Rainbow HEADBANDS and I have no idea wtf they are? How can you have a headband that isn’t solid.
You cannot have one that is made just out of paint according to the college dictionary of the english language: “a band of fabric worn around the head as a decoration or to keep the hair or perspiration off the face.
Apparently it isn’t something that you spray around your head and call it a headband. Nope. You take a normal headband and start layering on the colors. Teen Vogue explains:
“Bumble and Bumble stylist Allen Thomas Wood took to Instagram to show off the look, which was sort of created by accident. Wood explained to Vogue that he originally intended to make a monochromatic stenciled headband as an experiment, but he just kept layering on colors until the style took on a rainbow effect.

The result is certainly worthy of a thousand double-taps. With various stripes of neon green, bold blue, and even an ombré of pink and purple, Wood’s rainbow headband is the perfect combination of that throwback middle school stye with 2017’s unicorn vibes” (Teen Vogue, 2017.)
It is wise to avoid products that react negatively to water. Mr. Wood’s color mixture was
