Quick Hits: Pronouns and Shimmies

I loved Looney Tunes when I was a kid. Who didn’t love Bug Bunny and Daffy Duck feuding, especially when Elmer Fudd was added to the mix. In fact, one of the funniest arguments they ever had revolved around Daffy constantly telling Elmer to “Shoot me now!” in the classic, “Rabbit Seasoning.” At one point, Daffy slows things down and says “Pronoun trouble,” leading of course to another slapstick blast of buckshot in the face. (I wonder if the cartoon is even online with all the violence. Here is a clip.) Again Again addresses the subject of modern self-identification with their new song, “Pronoun Party,” from their upcoming CD, Your Voice Is Magic. “Pronoun Party” addresses gender expansive usage through a woke blast of knowledge directly into your kids’ brains. 

You can find music from Again Again at their website, Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon

Growing up, I had a friend who was described as “fussy” by other parents. He just couldn’t seem to concentrate or sit still. Reflecting back, it’s highly likely he had undiagnosed Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The condition is now more understood and children (and adults) are afforded proper medical care and treatment, which has removed much of the stigma from ADHD.

‘The Shimmies’ from Jazzy Ash

Musician Jazzy Ash (Ashli St. Armant) confronted her ADHD diagnosis head-on with compassion and honestly. For Mental Health Awareness Month (and also for her birthday this week), she has delivered “The Shimmies,” a brand new song that shines a spotlight on ADHD. Creativity and music are a potent combination and Ashli strives to let children know that it’s okay to get up and move around when your brain get fired up from an intoxicating blend of sound and lyrics.

You can listen to “The Shimmies” on Jazzy Ash’s websiteSpotifyApple Music, and Amazon.
