“Stop bitching and be thankful”
And you sir are exactly who we need to be raising awareness to! Thanks for coming out Pat :) . You must live in a world of all males… You must never have had contact with a female.
… Ohh wait? You have a mother? A sister? A female cousin or friend?? Why yes of course you do. And this is the kind of treatment they should be “thankful for” ? If they came to you FRIGHTENED out of their mind because they couldn’t even walk to their car at night without being harassed, would you SERIOUSLY tell them to “stop bitching”??

Woww! This video just brought me the most awful feeling in my gut. I went to uni in Toronto and walking around downtown was always a daily mission. My shoulders were always tense, hands balled up in my pockets and I speed-walked it from point A to point B with my head down hoping for little incident. Comments like these are not funny to me, nor are they cute or endearing. Those comments mean that I look like a piece of meat to you, and.. f–k, does that scare me. That’s why I’m looking down, and walking faster. I’m not playing hard to get and coy.. It means, “I’m terrified for my safety right now” Walking from Yonge and Dundas to Yonge and Gerrard always brought on a bout of anxiety for me. 0.0!!
Thanks for raising awareness for this not-for-profit, Trent. I’m heading over to their website right now! :)

“…but I do take pride in the fact that I have truly tried to keep things fun, positive and non-douchey here on PITNB”
As do I, Trent! PitNB is my homepage for a reason ;) Love to J.Law for being such a rockstar, but TONS for you as well for holding on to what you believe in!

His autoimmune and regulatory systems must be shot, hence the frequent illnesses :( Poor guy! I doubt he will even ALLOW himself to succomb to his diagnosis.. not without a good, hearty fight. Get your rest, eat well, and keep doing what you love. Best wishes*

I loved the studio version, and I absolutely ADORE the live version. What a privilege to time travel to the past with a song from the future.
I always think about artists from the past and wonder if they would make it in today’s tough industry. Would Bon Jovi’s glorious hair and “Wanted Dead or Alive” have made it big today or would they just be a sad Nickelback tribute band? Would Stevie Nicks make it to #1 with “Edge of Seventeen” if it was released this week? When I really get to thinking about it, I tend to get overwhelmed and just leave it alone.. there’s too many logistics (the recording process, sound quality/technology, the impact of social media) to really justify anything. “Just appreciate old music for what it is!”
But seeing Aretha singing Rolling in the Deep LIVE just reversed all of this manic thinking :o Would Adele have been just as huge and loved in the 70s? What an idea :D

Hi Trent, as a nurse I just wanted to say .. there is no medicine, no IV antibiotic, that could speed the recovery of your father faster than a visit from you! :) Trust me, I’ve seen the worst of patients rebound in 24h when someone special comes from far away to be with them.
Keep him motivated,keep him moving and drinking lots of fluids .. Don’t forget to be there for your Ma, she’ll need your support too. Just don’t wear yourself out either. :( Take a few days from the blog even! We would gladly wait here and hold out fort for you. xx
