Peggielene Bartels, A.K.A. King Peggy, is currently the King of Otuam, Ghana. She was chosen to be one of only three female kings in Ghana, and when she discovered that male chauvinists wanted her to only be a figurehead, she said: “They were treating me like I am a second-class citizen because I am a woman. I said, ‘Hell no, you’re not going to do this to a woman!’” When she encountered corruption and the threat of embezzlement to the royal funds, she declared “I’m going to squeeze their balls so hard their eyes pop!”
King Peggy has maintained her work in Ghana’s embassy in Washington, D.C. while making education affordable in Otuam, installing borehead wells to produce clean drinking water, enforcing incarceration laws to deal with domestic violence, replenishing the royal coffers by taxing Otuam’s fishing industry to improve life in the village, and appointing three women to her council.
“Nobody should tell you, ‘You’re a woman, you can’t do it,’” she insists. “You can do it. Be ready to accept it when the calling comes.”
Quoted from the Spring/Summer 2012 issue of Ms. Magazine.

What a beautiful badass woman.

King Peggy has been on my blog before but this is my goddamn blog and I will have King Peggy on here twice if I want.

MORE FEMALE KINGS.

Always reblog King Peggy, who is on my dash far less than she should be. Did you know she has written a book about her life? It is great, and you should all get right on that if you haven’t already.

Mabel Pines sculpture by Joyce
Photographed by Romy

I made this sculpture in secret for my sister and gave it to her as a christmas present. There are some mistakes and things I’m not satisfied with but I’m not going to point them out, so hopefully you’ll overlook them. I am quite proud of the fact that I actually finished it in time :>

Happy Holidays everyone!

So sad this joke got cut

Not gonna lie— this one was pretty draining, with pretty much every character in every shot, a few songs, an acapella version of Keeping it Cool that took FOREVER to record, and one of the most complicated mixes we ever had to deal with. See more, including more Thomas, a completely cut montage, and weird Mordecai faces on the storyboard on scribd!

The Mordecai and the Rigbys - Keeping it Cool

Hey everybody! Hope you enjoyed the episode. Here’s the demo of the song I wrote for “The Return of the Mordecai and the Rigbys”, Keeping it Cool. It’s kind of a Nirvana/Thin Lizzy/Journey/Cheap Trick power pop chimera. This is me on vocals, not JG.

Me (guitar), Sean (bass and guitar), Krandal (producing and solo), Marcus (keys) and Clinton (drums) spent a weekend and recorded a hi fidelity version of this. It was a blast playing it live!! It sounds way more professional and you can hear it a little bit in the episode when they’re practicing. There’s no vocals though.

Keeping it Cool pro version

B-B-B-BONUS! Demo of horrible Grunge song I also wrote.

Lyrics:

<Verse>

Sometimes I dream about that AC, AC

Cold Waves flowing over, over me

Feelin’ Hot, maybe it’s a state of mind

Think cold to pass the pass the time

Snowmen and Snowstorms

There’s not much to it

Think things like, ice cubes

Igloos and fridges

Chillax….

<Chorus>

K-k-k-keeping it cool x 2

<Verse>

Sometimes I dream about Ice Planet X

A distant planet way colder, colder than the rest

That’s where Lord Blizzord resides

Think about his kingdom to pass the pass the time

Ice-liths and Ice-henge

There’s not much to it

Getting blasted by ice rays by

Blizzard wizards ice druids

Chillax…

<Chorus>
