!! OMG, 40 musical reasons why Dolly Parton is a groundbreaking genius, in chronological order !!

dolly-wink

To celebrate the third leg of Dolly Parton‘s Pure & Simple tour (beginning this Friday in Toronto), we asked our friend Brad, the biggest Dolly fan we know, to create a chronological list of his favourite Dolly songs.

You might be surprised that most of Dolly’s songs (particularly the early ones) are not about romantic heartbreak, but uplifting things like unplanned pregnancy, child abuse, murder, and insanity — from a feminist perspective.

Heads up: We didn’t even try to include a song from Trio or Trio II, the glorious collaboration albums from Dolly, Emmylou Harris, and Linda Ronstadt. You should really listen to those in their entirety.

Now, on to the list! Song titles in bold are the ones Brad predicts Dolly is most likely to play on the Pure & Simple tour.
​​
01. Dumb Blonde (1967) was the first single from Dolly’s first album Hello, I’m Dolly. She ain’t no dumb blonde though!

02. Just Because I’m A Woman (1968) was Dolly’s first single on RCA. She wrote it in response to her husband’s disappointment that she wasn’t a virgin when they were married in 1966 (50 years ago!). Some radio stations refused to play it because it was considered controversial at the time.

03. In The Good Old Days When Times Were Bad (1969) is about Dolly’s impoverished childhood and her mixed emotions about those times. It’s full of imagery and sincerity. Classic Dolly.

!! OMG, WATCH: Seth Rogan and Amy Schumer are back in BUD LIGHT ads and awesomley pushing gender nonconformity !!

“We are going to bring America together… to party for everyone, men, women, people of all genders! But, you know, gender identity it’s really a spectrum and we don’t need these labels”

We love it! Take the paycheque but do some actual good while promoting the product! This is great advertising.

!! OMG, WATCH: Whoopi Goldberg debuts trailer for her new trans modelling agency reality show STRUT !!

Not sure if this will be a good thing for the trans community (visibility) or a bad thing (exploitative display of terrible unnecessary drama) – but these days, we think it’s great that an inclusive show like this just exists to begin with!

!! OMG, quote of the day: Bret Easton Ellis is not here for the SJWs of the world !!

“Oh, little snowflakes, when did you all become grandmothers and society matrons, clutching your pearls in horror at someone who has an opinion about something, a way of expressing themselves that’s not the mirror image of yours, you snivelling little weak-ass narcissists?” he added. “The high moral tone from social justice warriors is always out of scale with what they are indignant about. When did this hideous and probably nerve-wracking way of living begin transforming you into the authoritarian language police, with your strict set of little rules and manufactured outrage, demanding apologies from every sandwich or salad you didn’t like?”

– Author Bret Easton Ellis on the hyper-sensitivity of today’s society.

!! OMG, WATCH: Sarah Silverman to ‘Bernie Or Bust’ at DNC: You’re being ridiculous !!

So according to Wikileaks, and some leaked emails – there’s been some serious DNC manipulation in Hillary’s favour – but Sarah is trying to look past all that and she wants us to vote for Hillary and beat Trump so we don’t have the next Hitler on our hands! Cuz then we’d be really fuct! We can see how frustrating this all is, but she’s also kind of right. Check out Sarah’s speech above!
