If she is still in possession of Big Jim and the twins, going into a female baths is going to have her put down for a nonce straight away.
It's ok identifying as a woman, but to most people dangling the meat n taters in the bath says otherwise.
What ever happened to kon-yoku anyway? I remember sitting in a bath in the boonies of Tohoku. The only other occupants were two old women with their well droopy danglers floating in front of them. Truly a gender-free experience.

The trans females I know are beautiful and take great care to give their external appearance to fit their internal one.
I have worked with a couple of trans females. I support their lifestyle, but no amount of hormone therapy can hide the fact they still look like geezers in dresses.

Country generally connects with listeners through more relatable lyrics, storytelling, and a range of emotions. A good thing, if you appreciate the holistic experience that music can provide.
Or it's soulless MOR rock in cowboy hats.

Some people are prone to addiction. Add to that copious amounts of money and the pressures of fame...it's a story that has been told many times.

People still believe in detoxing?
We have an amazing system called the body that does it very well on its own, but those of a lower mental capacity still think shooting water up their chufters or eating scam diets can help.
I had a friend who did the Paleo silliness diet. Despite getting kidney stones several times, and his doctors telling him that the kidney stones were a direct result of his diet, he refused to believe it. What a tit.
These new scams being aimed at children is a whole new level of scummy marketing.

They are both as bad as each other. Israel has the power and should have responsible enough not to treat the Palestinians as they have done. But Hamas' latest actions are horrific in the extreme - nothing justifies it.

It's not even true AI right now, it's just predictive AI. Still a long way to go before they come up with a true AI
What is true AI? Are you talking about a general artificial intelligence?
Artificial intelligence is a wide field - machine learning, deep learning, robotics, neural networks, natural language processing, genetic algorithms...it goes on. What's 'just predictive AI?' Chatgpt or Midjourney aren't, they are both generative AI. Predictive AI is a different type.

I understand the concerns; the rapid advancement of AI does bring about serious ethical and safety considerations. However, a total ban might prevent the development of technologies that could profoundly benefit society, such as in healthcare or environmental protection. A more measured approach would be to establish stringent regulations and oversight to ensure responsible development and deployment of AI, addressing the risks without sacrificing the potential rewards.

Brand went down the conspiracy nut rabbithole on purpose. He knew it was coming eventually and he wanted a rabid following to defend him.
The carefully timed video before the charges were released put focus on 'mainstream media.' And now his nutjob following is screaming it was the fault of the tv companies, rather than that Brand is a serial rapist(alleged.)

As AI has rendered me illiterate, as asked ChatGpt to express my thoughts on Samba festivals in Japan.
"In the vast tapestry of Tokyo's cultural endeavours, the Asakusa Samba Festival stands as a beacon to all things delightfully gauche. The festival, in its symphony of riotous colours and sounds, is undeniably a masterclass in the art of the unrefined. And then, amidst this kaleidoscope, one finds the saggy-assed middle-aged participants. Adorned in the most vivid makeup, their attempts at dance are reminiscent of epileptic turkeys performing atop a blistering tin stage. The Asakusa Samba Festival, it seems, is where elegance takes its leave and whimsical absurdity holds court"

Let's face it, anyone in the entertainment business, whether in Japan or abroad has sucked someone off to get a role.
The casting couch is as old as the industry.
So if you wanted the cushy famous lifestyle back in the day, you had better pucker up those cheeks, because here comes uncle Johnny.

The Band were a bit before my time, but one song stood out so much the first time I watched Easy Rider, I had to look it up.

I think she was a complicated soul who tried to console herself in religion, but was ultimately destroyed by it
The suicide of her son was probably the biggest factor in the end.
I met her at a traditional music festival in Ireland once. She was there with Enya - probably researching her Sean-Nós Nua album at the time.
I only spoke a few words with her, but she seemed very quiet and humble - not the firebrand she was often portrayed as.
