i love facebook. it is the narcissist’s best friend, if such a thing is possible. YOU, the account holder, have an entire page focused on YOU. what’s more, other people can post images and messages on that page. of course, these postings are all related to YOU. because it is all about YOU. YOU get wander around the home page and casually “overhear” all of the conversations that YOUR friends are having and then decide whether or not YOU would like to add YOUR comments to their discussion. it’s like an internet cocktail party with absolutely no social etiquitte required. why? because it’s all about YOU. once YOU are friends with someone on facebook, it is expected that YOU will then pilfer through their photos and info and their friends to decide what YOU may want to comment on and which friends YOU would like to have for YOUR very own. it’s all about YOU. then there is also the extra dose of just how focused facebook is on YOU; facebook will notify YOU every time someone comments on something YOU have commented on in the past. can it get any more about YOU? oh yes, it can. YOU also have a message box so that YOUR friends can write notes directly to YOU. there is a place to put YOUR photo albums, a section for YOUR favorite music or videos and a bio page for all of YOUR interests and “personal information”. YOU can get “flair”, badges, own a farm, have an apartment and even create YOUR own mafia. facebook is the virtual home away from home, living inside YOUR computer. and since it is inside YOUR computer, YOU can visit facebook any hour of the day or nite. YOU can go there while wearing an evening gown or nothing at all. YOUR virtual hair is always perfect as long as it’s that way in YOUR profile picture. it is all about YOU.

the thing that i like the most about facebook is that it is easy to find other people who share YOUR interests. i am a fan of kevin spacey, stephen fry, steve martin, nuno bettencourt and the t.v. show “house”. in fact, facebook is so good that i am also a fan of dorothy parker who has been dead for 50 years. now that is a good wireless connection. YOU can also find the not so common interests as well as the celebrity pages. YOU can be a fan of lint, taking naps, blowing bubbles, blinking and even banging YOUR head against the wall. no matter YOUR proclivities, YOU can find other people out there who are just as warped and bizarre as YOU are. and really, isn’t that what we all want? don’t we all want to be the star of the blockbuster film that is our life….and then make everyone come to the premiere?

facebook – our reason for existence is YOU.

“Barbie Angell Uncensored” is a dazzling fusion
of poetry, comedy and tragedy

ASHEVILLE NC – Poet, playwright and raconteur Barbie Angell performs “Barbie Angell Uncensored: An Unfiltered, Uninhibited and Unapologetic Event” at 8pm Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at LaZoom Bar & Gorilla. The 90-minute show is a melange of works spanning Angell’s career, including her poetry, excerpts from her autobiographical play “Death by Sparkle,” pieces from her children’s book “Roasting Questions,” and rarely performed mature works.

A multitalented, multi-hyphenate personality based in Asheville since 1999, the always colorful Angell is recognized around town for her work as a poet, playwright, columnist, emcee, artist and fashion designer. She has been voted “Best of WNC” poet by Mountain XPress readers for 10 consecutive years, and her skills as an emcee have made her a sought-after host for local festivals and large events such as Planned Parenthood’s Condom Couture and the Reproductive Rights Rally. 

Angell has written sketch comedy, co-authored “The Kids Show: Definitely Not for Kids,” and penned one act of “Grimm’s Fairy Tales” for Montford Park Player. She is currently creating and selling upcycled clothing in her own fun and funky signature style – some of which will be available for sale at the event, along with original artwork and prints.

Equal parts stand-up comedy, poetry slam and public confession booth, “Barbie Angell Uncensored” promises to be emotional, unsettling, hilarious, and as unique as Barbie Angell herself!

Tickets are available at for a suggested donation of $20.
