So, the world's richest woman (almost) didn't get the bag she wanted? Hold the front page, stop the presses. What is going on? Oprah can't walk into a store in Switzerland these days and buy a bag allegedly because SHE'S BLACK?
This most ridiculous of news stories made me almost join Twitter. My brain-washing is not yet complete it would seem. Funny how the MM are painting this as something to do with immigration and race discrimination. What a black-bag full of rubbish that is.
Perhaps the real reason is that she just wasn't recognised by the shop assistant, who would have probably sold the Diva fifty bags if she'd have known better!
With all the real 'black bag jobs' going on in the world right now, you would think that a story like this not worthy of headlines, but think again. More distraction tactics and focus on race and immigration.
Syncs featuring 'black' include Karen Black who died today. She was the Golden Globe winning Hollywood actress who starred in many films from the 70s, including Five Easy Pieces, Easy Rider, and The Great Gatsby. Black Sabbath are also in the news after it was announced they would receive the Living Legend Award at this year's Classic Rock Roll of Honour in November.
I have written for the culture, entertainment, and travel sectors, both on-line and in the local press.
For over twenty years my day-job consisted of slugging away, making other people rich, in the world's most ruthless, yet strangely boring and inept corporate finance environments. That includes international banking, new-IT, and advertising.
As freelance writer, and critic, in my spare time, I help run a workshop for local writers. I am still writing the on-line movie review blog ‘Celluloid Seduction’, hanging around a lot of the entertainment sites in the process.
After the devastating and unsolved death of my younger brother on 09/09/1994, I now attempt to exorcise feelings of powerlessness, and loss, that plague my psyche, by creating modern literal performance poetry, using traditional rhythmic forms, following in the footsteps of my late grandfather, the Cypriot 'Red Village' poet 'Vasilis'.
I have many interests including the cinema, music, writing of all kinds, political and religious debate, new and weird science and the occult, plus a lot of other things that just don't fit in this box.
This blog is full of memories and opinion and observations. Feel free to quote me, but please respect me enough to credit 'Marie from Cyprus' on anything you repeat.
Thanks for dropping by!
