TNFro Is Reading…Mercury Is In Retrograde. Duh F***

Notes from TNFro Is Reading Podcast….

TNFro Is Reading Season or Podcast Finale…I haven’t decided Yet. Talking about Inheritance, Woke History, Pop Culture, and Unreali-TV Mena Not Invited and #RHOA-Nay Nay Not Down feliciabaxter

  I forgot which writer said it's better to be at the end of something instead of the beginning. But what I do know this is the last new episode besides going live every now and again.  I don't know if this is just the season finale or if this is gonna be the last new episode ever of my podcast,  but I know I'm gonna take this time to rethink what direction I'm going to go.   And I want to get back to my first love which is writing. I guess I am just in enough time for NaNoWriMo 2023.  I want to take a skill share class on screenwriting and may be tightening up my book writing skills. I  also want to concentrate on things that I like to do and learn better skills to do it. But also concentrating on building relationships and only working with people that I like.   All good things must come to an end…my passion project hasn't started to pay for itself.

Mercury is in Retrograde until October 18th.

What does that mean exactly??? Communications are fraught with angst and anxiety. Is that why everyone with an inflated sense of self-worth or importance coming at me with their hands out?

It appears the planet is moving backwards, from West to East

I would love to have a side business, including my blog and website as a safe space for other creatives, and I actually wanted to include family members. But, sometimes you can’t take everyone with you. You don’t have to take everyone with you. Also, you, human crab, don’t need to go where I go.

Crab Family

Thus I started Side Eye-Side Bars to express my derision with people coming at me crazy.

Side Eye

Having other creatives acting like the blue crab. Tearing down or negating another creative’s worth and importance with their own inflated self importance. I am a significant other of no one. I am not an agent nor a life coach. I will no longer support a delusional inflated self important egotist. Riddle me this, is it easier to support the work of a creative with no sense of self worth or a wanna be creative with an inflated sense of self? I know my request for freelance blog post went left quickly. Although I will not accept the submission my response did provide the content for my TNFro Is Reading Podcast. Let me know what you think in the comments section or send them to If non-trolley I may add to the daily posts or read on the podcast.

What I’m Reading Watching and Writing…

Still Reading and Writing about the Perils of Privilege and more about Black Privilege.

Dave Chappelle is more genius than Lil’ Naz X. I would gather Dave Chappelle is the original troll. You expect him to say some wild -ish forcing people to stream his shows and comedy specials. Y’all do realize Sticks and Stones, Equanimity and now the latest and if you believe him the last in his Old Dude Comedy Trilogy, The Closer, he has used some of the same jokes, different context, at different points in the shows although taped in a 4 year span in front of different audiences in different cities for 60 Mill Large right? Yes, he says some really problematic -ish in his special, but does he need to be cancelled? No. Because he used some of the same material in his other specials, and in this version seemed a bit more tame. Further, demanding Netflix to remove the episode, is not violation of free speech, if you paid attention in Civics 101. Nor is it a remote possibility that this will happen, given its ranking from a streaming standpoint. This special does not excuse homophobia, Asian Violence, or the serial killer(s) hunting trans-women. If you want to use a comedy special as an excuse to do your dirt and kill and maime people, girl bye, Dave Chapelle offense is not a defense for your shenanigans. Stop it! I don’t buy it.
