Apparently this is my last week @ the Cumbies I work at. Mainly cause next week I’ll be at the closer store. ;-) Woo Hoo! Less gas money spent, and less travel time. Not to mention less drama. Or is it different drama? Whatever. Hopefully it’s also a little more money.
He did it again. He did it a-fucking-gain. The god dammed electricity is off. He said he was paying it Thurs/Fri and I find the bill saying how’d on the 9th. And how I would normally vent frustration is lost to me since the fucking PS3 works off electricity.
We’ve all heard of Betty Boop. But how many of you knew that she was based off of a BLACK woman.
Yes Betty Boop was based off of Ms.Esther Jones known by her stage name “Baby Esther”. She was an African-American singer and entertainer of the 1920’s. Her singing trademark was “Boop oop da doop” hence the name Betty Boop! She performed regularly at the cotton club in Harlem,New York.

"Esther Jones was a regular performer at Harlem’s infamous Cotton Club, where a white American singer/actress named Helen Kane saw her act in 1928 and copied Jones’ “baby” singing style for a recording of “I Wanna Be Loved By You.”
In June 1930, Kane starred in Malcolm St. Clair‘s comedy film titled Dangerous Nan McGrew, alongside Victor Moore and James Hall.
A few months later in August 1930, Betty Boop made her first appearance in Dizzy Dishes, the sixth installment in Fleischer’s Talkartoon series.”
