"Top Cat" LOL! (And a gripe at the end.. *sigh*)

Can you imagine walking down the street and seeing this fellow with his pal? I'm sure the regular readers of my blog know I like cats, and I think I've mentioned a while back that I have 2 cats here that "own" me. But my cats have never tried riding around on my head! LOL

I guess I'll continue the feline funnies by adding an LOL Cat...

I'm still watching the news, both on TV and online. I just haven't found a lot to write about lately. The Casey Anthony case is progressing, both for the murder trial and for the fraud case. Apparently the prosecutors are going to try to push the fraud case ahead of the murder case. The defense for the murder case is saying they won't be ready until some time next year, so why not push the fraud case ahead.. The motions have been filed, so we'll have to wait and see what the judge says. And we'll probably have to listen to Baez whine about how unfair it is for Casey to have to face up to her theft of money from her friend and her grandparents before she has to face the music for Caylee's death.

Someone recently asked about the case against a local man that I posted about months ago, and I've done some looking around and have found absolutely nothing online about the case that is recent. The man I am talking about is Rex Archer. When I went for that drive on Sunday with my Mom and Stepdad on Father's Day, we talked about Rex and the lack of news about the case against him. (Rex Archer was accused and arrested for sexual abuse on two girls. ) There were two postponements of hearings and then suddenly there was no news at all about the case. My folks and I are thinking that Rex has pulled some strings in Yuba County.. After all, he is one of the "good old boys" over there. I'll keep trying to find out what has happened with the case.

Now, about a case that is done with. Sort of. Phil Spector. Apparently there are a few people trolling the net who object to anything being posted that is the least bit unfavorable towards thier idol, Phil Spector. They've decided my blog is a good place to play again. (Similar childishness happened back when I posted the photo of Rachelle Spector playing with a gun during the second trial for Phil.) So, since the children have decided they want to use my blog for their games, I am putting the comment moderation back into effect. If they want to post about how much they love Phil and Rachelle Spector and spread their hate for everyone that doesn't love them, I suggest they start their own blog or message board. I guess they haven't noticed that Phil Spector is only a very minor part of my blog. As the civil cases that Phil Spector is involved in advance, there may be other posts about him on here. If Rachelle Spector does any outrageous things again, there may be other posts about her. The fans of Mr. Spector and his wife need to grow up and realize that their games aren't going to change anyone's minds about his guilt or anything else. Give it a rest, kids... I'm not going to change my mind about Phil Spector. He has been found guilty of murdering Lana Clarkson. And rightly so. He has been sentenced to prison, most likely for the rest of his life. Again, rightly so. If his "fans" don't want to behave themselves in the comments here, the comments won't see the light of day. Period.

After all, this is my blog and since it is my blog, I can post my opinion whenever I want, no matter how popular or unpopular it is. (And I don't have to put up with abuse from people who oppose my views... lol)

My apologies to my regular readers and commenters. Hopefully the children will go find another place to play soon.

YOU GO GIRL.....If it were "my" blog I would probably be a tyrant LOL These Phil Spector idolizers must really live in the past. YES.. he WAS a musical genius "way back in the day", but music has come a long way and we have lots of new geniuses to bring music even further. To rest on the laurels of time long past is so unproductive..what has he done lately???? What has he done to give back to the industry that made him??? What has he done for anyone other than himself??? (tips to hot waitresses don't count) This man was extremely troubled and had serious rage issues against women. He never dealt with it or sought help. Very sad!!! It ended tragically. Alot of people turn their lives around and become functioning humans able to give back.....he chose to wallow in narcissism and rage and live off of the past. So sad, too bad!

Don't ask for people's opinion on the 2 photos of Lana and Rachelle if you are not prepared to accept ALL views, that do not agree with yours. Why ask?

Anakerie said...

Anon, give it a rest. I accepted the views of the ones who commented on how "beautiful" Rachelle is, didn't I?

I've tried to be fair about the comments on this blog from the very first and I've allowed BOTH sides of every issue to be posted. It's when the ones like you and your other anon buddy come in and try to take over that causes me to call a halt to it.

Like I said, it's amazing to me that it's the SPECTOR fanatics that have caused it BOTH times.

Sprocket said...

You can't please 100% of the readers 100% of the time, so why try?

Keep doing what you do best Anakerie, and that's run your blog how you see fit.

Anakerie said...

Thanks Sprocket.. I'm workin on it.. lol..

It just kind of amazes me that with all the posts I've done on here over the last year and a half or so, the only subject that causes the fanatics to come out and make trouble is Spector...

Sprocket said...

Okay. I just watched the video of Sprockey's long lost cousin. You ALWAYS find this amazing stuff, LOL!

Spector will die in prison; end of story. Most people don't realize that his sentence 19-to-life IS a LIFE SENTENCE. The earliest possible parole is in 19 years, yet, for murderers, the first time before the parole board is almost 100% of the time, DENIED.

IF, and that's a big IF, Spector really wanted the world to know THE TRUTH of what happened in the early morning hours of February 3rd, 2003, in the blood red carpeted foyer, he would have taken the stand and told them. But as everyone knows, he didn't.

Anakerie said...

lol, I can't take credit for finding that video of Sprockey's long lost cousin. That one is all on my daughter, she sent me a link to it..

I agree with you about Spector. I don't believe he's going to last 19 plus years in prison. Unless his health dramatically improves now that he's no longer on so many different medications.

He most likely can't remember what he did that morning... His memory of murdering Lana probably disappeared when the alcohol wore off... And then he spent all these years trying to convince the world that she committed suicide with his gun... (insert rolling eyes icon here.. lol)

Oh I see friends only allowed is it. Very biased.

Anakerie said...

Interesting... another "biggie" in the music industry just got arrested.. Just saw it on CNN.. 71 year old Joseph Brooks, the guy who wrote "You Light Up My Life" was arrested on rape charges.

Anakerie said...

Oh by the way, Anon @ 1:17.. You're wrong. It's not "who" writes the comment. It's the content of the comment that gets it canned.

Play nice on my blog or don't bother posting at all. Yes, I've discarded a few posts of yours and others since enabling the moderation. Just like last time.

shari said...

Amazing how the "anons" won't put a name to their nonsense. Get your own blog if you don't like the tone here. Anakerie, I happen to love this blog and Sprockets and others. You don't have to agree with me and I don't have to agree with you...but....I DO try to be respectful ! Thanks for being here. These anon comments sound very juvenile.

I know this is an old blog, but I found it on Google. Just to update on the Rex Archer case.. it was dismissed.

I don't wish to start any kind of blog match, but calling him one of the good 'ol boys is very inaccurate considering they do not like his constant inquiries about where thirty million tax dollars that were not audited by TRILIA and other area discrepencies.

Most details about the dismissal can be found on the Appeal Democrat site with a search. You will get the DA's comment and many reader comments who debate the truthfulness of the DA (Pat McGrath).

Take care and Happy Holidays. :)

Hi Anon.. Yes, I know that Rex's case was dismissed. I saw/read the article in the local paper about it.

Perhaps you know the man better than I do, since all I can go by is what my parents had to say along with what has been published in the paper. And I include Rex's own comments on various articles in the online version of the paper. Like I said. I don't know the man. But I trust my parents and their assessments of the man and their dealings with him. ::shrug:: I didn't get involved in the discussions on the paper's website and I won't get involved in a debate of the case now on my own blog.

I hope you have Happy Holidays too... :-)
