SJW | Buttercup of Doom 2.7

This week I talk about SJWs, aka Social Justice… Witch hunts. Not Warriors. Witch hunts. Because definitions get fuzzy, fingers get all pointy, and evidence and procedure are tossed out the window in the name of social media hysteria. Welcome to the American Witch Hunts of 2017, where sexual harassment, racism and prejudicial behavior are all lit up like torches for the masses to carry with their pitchforks.

Dumbing Down America | Buttercup of Doom 2.4

This week I don’t just get angry at the system for dumbing down America, I spew about the sheep allowing it. From the blatant watering down of education to the mental tapeworm of media and entertainment… NSFW: language.

Adulting | Buttercup of Doom 2.3

*to boil an egg: put water in pot. turn on heat (burner/flame/etc). once it is boiling, gently add eggs. set timer for 13 minutes**. go scrub your f**king toilet. take off heat. tip pan into sink and pour hot water out (not the eggs. use a lid or something to hold them there). add really cold water. drain again. cold water. drain. add cold water and let sit on stove/counter. go dust the tops of all the frames and clocks. remove from water. dry off. use sharpie to draw faces on eggs (that’s how you tell the boiled from the raw, duh). put in fridge.  you’re welcome.

**13 minutes is the exact time needed for a. perfectly yellow insides, not that overdone green color, and b. if you slap it against the counter and roll it back and forth, the shell will come off in one piece… handy.

Kelli Owen (Buttercup of Doom)

 All of them!! oh, why did i answer that way? because i’m just a sad girl from the midwest who lived in areas that were not populated for most of my life and concerts didn’t actually come by me. hell, animals didn’t live where i did! but for my birthday one year, a friend got tickets, tossed me in the car, and we drove 4 hours to go to Aerosmith. Then i moved to PA 10 years later, and managed to sneak out to a couple, so then i finally got to actually GO to some concerts

1. Chris Cornell – acoustic heaven!!
2. Aerosmith
3. Avett Brothers
4. Breaking Benjamin
5. Motley Crue… last place only because the 2 times they were near me when i was younger, i was grounded, then pregnant, and missed them. This did not stop friends and family from sending me every VHS or DVD of their concerts over the years. so while it was never “live” for me, it was live taped concerts and i have watched them repeatedly. someday i’ll see some part of them actually live (probably SIXX AM, since meteornotes said the Crue tickets were ridiculous last time they were even close enough to drive)

New Norm | Buttercup of Doom 2.1

This week I lament over the new norm: the stupid things society just accepts because they’re common. From emulating stupidity to demeaning terms like baby mama and side chicks, I have opinions… and a potty mouth. *NSFW* this week for Language.
