Roseanne Barr Drops Depressing piece Of News

Rosanne Barr is going blind. The former sitcom Roseanne star revealed a bombshell, that she is starting to lose her vision. She has spoken out to The Daily Beast about a lot of subjects- Hillary Clinton (against), feminism (against), other comedians (she’s a big fan of Doug Stanhope, apparently)- but what sticks out the most is her eyesight. She has let all her fans know that she is suffering from macular degeneration and glaucoma,

and that eventually the condition will one day rob her of all vision.

“My vision is closing in now,” Barr explained. “It’s something weird. But there are other weird things. That one’s harsh, ’cause I read a lot, and then I thought, ‘Well, I guess I could hire somebody to read for me and read to me.’ But I like words and I like looking. You do what you have to do. I just try and enjoy vision as much as possible—y’know, living it up. My dad had it, too.”

But she’s got a secret weapon (well, not so secret really) to keep herself balanced. Marijuana. “It’s a good medicine, you know,” claims Barr.

“It’s expansive. It opens your mind. You’re like… Wow, you’re in awe. You look up into the stars. It makes you wonder. It doesn’t close that down.”
Barr added that marijuana also helps prevent “mind control,” as well.

More on Barr, she is an actress, comedian, writer, television producer, director, and 2012 presidential nominee of the California-based Peace and Freedom Party.

Surfer Blood Thomas Fekete Has Rare Cancer Fighting For His Life

Thomas Fekete has been diagnosed with Cancer. A member of the American alternative rock band from West Palm Beach, Florida, Surfer Blood has launched a Crowdfunding Campaign. Fekete is a guitar and backing vocals and on May 12, the group are preparing to release their album 1000 Palms, but sadly Fekete will not taking part in the promotion, and he is battling against serious health issues.

He’s been diagnosed with “a very rare and aggressive cancer,” and he’s seeking funds to help pay for the treatment.

Fekete has started a GoFundMe campaign and is seeking $76,000. In a statement, he revealed that he recently underwent surgery to remove a tumor from his abdomen. The disease has since spread to his lungs and spine.

He will be undergoing chemotherapy and has a team of doctors who are “extremely confident in an alternative treatment plan,” but this isn’t fully covered by his health insurance.

Fekete seems to be in good spirits, as he writes,

“I know this will soon be over like a bad dream.” As of press time, his GoFundMe campaign has raised more than $16,000. Check it out here.

His message,

A few months back I had a major surgery to remove a large tumor from my abdomen. I was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive cancer (a sarcoma), which, unfortunately, has moved. A few days ago, my doctors informed me that it had spread to my lungs and my spine.

The lesion on my lower spine will be treated with radiation, and I’ll also start chemotherapy this week. Because my cancer is so rare, there is very little research on it (cancer treatment is a business after all), so going to a typical doctor and getting loaded with all types of drugs would probably kill me. However, I found a doctor who is on the cutting edge of cancer treatments, and we have assembled a team of brilliant doctors who all seem to be extremely confident in an alternative treatment plan, to complement the chemotherapy. Because these doctors are doing things a bit differently, insurance will only cover a portion of my treatment. I never in my life thought that I would be asking for money publicly, but the universe works in funny ways.

Any bit of help would be massive for me, as I’m no longer able to tour and make a living, and my wonderful wife/best friend whom I just married in November will now be leaving work to help me throughout my treatment. If you can’t help, no worries whatsoever, all I ask is that you spread the word. Any extra funds collected when this is all said and done will be donated to further my doctor’s alternative cancer research. I not only feel great, but I am in great spirits, and I know this will soon be over like a bad dream. Please take care of yourselves, enjoy every single day. Life is beautiful. Love and light always.

-Thom

Yoko Ono Said Surprising proclamation ‘Ringo Starr Was The Most Influential Beatle’

Yoko Ono says Ringo Starr ‘Was the Most Influential Beatle’. It was in he sixties when Starr rose to fame when he was a drummer for the legendary rock group the Beatles, and the widow of he late John Lennon says Starr “embodies peace and love” at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. She said what was missing from the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony were John Lennon and George Harrison. And hen while backstage at the ceremony in Cleveland, Ohio, Ono made a surprising proclamation about Starr, she said,

the final Beatle to enter the institution as a solo artist. “No one is probably going to believe it,” she told Rolling Stone, “but he was the most influential Beatle.”

Ono said Starr’s honor “means so much to all of us in the Beatle family,” and that she was pleased to see the band’s happy-go-lucky drummer finally get his moment in the spotlight. “For some reason John got it, then George got it, then Paul got it,” she said. “So why didn’t they think about Ringo?”

John Lennon’s widow said that when she entered the Beatles’ orbit, she came to understand Starr was the most popular member of the band. Her explanation? Starr’s steady, kind personality. “John would go up and down and all that,” she said, “but Ringo was always just very gentle. And he really believed in peace and love.”

Ono said she’s glad Ringo has “a long, long life ahead of him” and says Starr doesn’t even have to preach anymore, because “he just sort of embodies peace and love.”

She added there’s the only thing missing from tonight:

“It would have been better if George and John were here, too.”

More on Starr, he is from Liverpool, England, Ringo Starr, and he is known for his easy-going personality.
