C’mon, c’mon, with everything falling down around me
I’d like to believe in all the possibilities

Try not to mistake what you have with what you hate
It could leave, it could leave, come the morning
Celebrate the night
It’s the fall before the climb

Shall we sing, shall we sing, ‘til the morning
If I fall forward, you fall flat
And if the sun should lift me up
Would you come back? C’mon!

C’mon, c’mon, with everything falling down around me
I’d like to believe in all the possibilities

The fact that you're comparing the day after pill to chemo, diabetes medicine and blood transfusions is absurd. A person does not need the day after pill to help them survive. If you aren't responsible enough to raise the child that you are possibly making you shouldn't be having sex to begin with

slackmistress:

What you’re saying is that women should choose to never have sex. Cool. Because no woman has ever been forced to have sex against her will. That would be rape, and we know that never happens.

Okay, so women aren’t having sex, and women aren’t getting raped. And yet…boner pills are still covered by insurance. So dudes need boner pills to survive to have sex…with other dudes? FINALLY WE KNOW WHO IS PROMOTING THE GAY AGENDA! THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT! (PS. I am totally 100% pro-gay agenda. I’m thrilled that all y’all have come around.)

I bring up chemo, diabetes, &etc because a Supreme Court Ruling establishes something called “precedent.” You probably don’t know what that is, but I’ll explain in terms you might understand. For example, you sent a dumb anonymous ask, followed up by another one. You’re setting a precedent that my anonymous asks will be dumb, which is why I’m shutting them off after this. NO MORE COOL GREY CIRCLEFACE, BRO.

By establishing that a CORPORATION can prohibit certain types of health care based on RELIGION, it establishes a PRECEDENT that other CORPORATIONS can use.

Regarding survival, women’s access to birth control goes hand in hand with women’s progress. You won’t read these, but here you go:

You're being so ignorant with your tweets. Hobby Lobby is a company that isn't going to support something they do not believe in. They aren't saying for people to not use birth control or any types of birth control. They just don't want to be the ones allowing it through their insurance. The company is being bashed for doing what they believe in while ignorant people like you get upset about it. If you don't agree don't work for them. It's simple

slackmistress:

Point one:

Hobby Lobby is a corporation. Corporations get certain benefits that people don’t: tax breaks, protection from criminal charges being filed, etc.

If Hobby Lobby would like to be a PERSON WITH RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, then Hobby Lobby should not get the protection of a corporation.

Point two:

If Hobby Lobby had the courage of their religious convictions, they would not:

If you are a human in the United States, it should not be up to your boss to decide what medicine is appropriate for you to take. It should be up to your doctor. Yes, and insurance company could deny you, but YOUR BOSS SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY DECISIONS WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR HEALTH CARE.

Point three:

Hobby Lobby is totes cool with vasectomies and erectile dysfunction drugs.

Point four:

One of the points people up is that Hobby Lobby doesn’t want to cover the Morning After Pill because it’s abortion. Except that the Morning After Pill ISN’T ABORTION. The Morning After Pill delays or inhibits ovulation. IT PREVENTS PREGNANCY. This is science. But maybe you think gravity is a myth, too.

Point five:

Christian Scientists and Jehovah’s Witnesses* traditionally do not believe in medicine. So I imagine you ‘re okay with a business run by someone who practices these faiths to not cover your mom’s chemo, or your diabetes medication, or a blood transfusion for your child. (*Edited to add: Jehovah’s Witnesses believe in medicine, just not blood transfusions. Thanks to annelangston for the clarification.)

Point six: (bonus round!)

I appreciate that you are so confident of your convictions that you are willing to put your name on your…oh wait. You’re anonymous.

ASCAP to Honor Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman with Inaugural Shirley Walker Award at 29th Film and TV Awards

"But I’m here to tell you, there’s something else… our music!" Lisa, to The Kid, Purple Rain, 1984

30 years to the day that the album “Purple Rain” was released, Wendy and Lisa will be honored tonight by ASCAP for their contributions as film and TV composers. 

Celebrating its own 30th birthday today, the Prince and the Revolution’s Birthday Show at First Avenue served as the live debut of “When Doves Cry.” The eventual monster smash, his first Number One single, was released to radio only 3 weeks prior. This one-off show pre-dated the release of the Purple Rain album by about 2 weeks and the movie by about 6 weeks. Conventional wisdom (or label executives) would dictate the show to be a preview of the album, but CW (or heeding label executives) was never Prince’s game. Instead, he chose to show off a random sampling of B-sides, unreleased tracks, associated artist giveaways, and a couple of 1999 album tracks.

The show is tight, showcasing his mastery as bandleader and the cohesive magic of the Revolution. Lisa’s background vocals are miked so to remind us how her voice complements Prince’s in a way that no other can or ever has, particularly on “Noon Rendezvous.” The studio version of the song is a cold mechanical novelty on Sheila E.’s The Glamorous Life, but here Prince’s passion, the warmth of the Revolution’s playing, and an added refrain of “sitting in this café, waiting for my baby,” changes the song into a plaintive love song.

Change was the order of the day, and the re-working of Erotic City into a guitar-laden rock funk workout from its traditional slow burn funk is my personal favorite.

The importance of “When Doves Cry” to Prince’s ascension into pop royalty is underscored by his nervous flubs introducing the song and imploring the crowd to join in the fun. Of course by the launch the Purple Rain Tour in November, 1984 such requests were not necessary. But on his 26th birthday, it showed a vulnerability that rarely crept out, and as such is ridiculously endearing. As if he ripped the scene right out of the movie, by the end of the track it fully won over the crowd, now ready to jump into a rousing serenade of Happy Birthday. And again like the movie, Prince and the Revolution then returned to the stage with a one-two punch of funk (“Irresistible Bitch” and “Possessed” in lieu of “I Would Die 4 U” and “Baby, I’m a Star”) that left the crowd clamoring for more. Luckily for them, and for world, Prince and the Revolution were just warming up.
