Stacy Green is hosting Kassandra Lamb at her site for Thriller Thursday, and Kassandra is asking, Narcissist or Psychopath?

We’ve all been hearing about PRISM this past week–the NSA program that collects all of our electronic data and scrutinizes it without probable cause or warrants. But it’s not just the US. Five countries, the US, UK, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada, are known in the government and intelligence agencies as the “Five Eyes.” The alliances between the intelligence agencies of these five countries effectively allows them to circumvent any prohibitions against spying on their OWN citizens in that they spy on EACH OTHERS’ citizens and share the information on a “massive spy cloud.” PRISM: Concerns Over Government Tyranny are Legitimate by Kim Dotcom at The Guardian.


An interview with . . . me! Historical fiction author Susan Spann got me to spill about this month’s dystopian thriller release, FIRELANDS, and forced me to reveal my favorite childhood story. No offense, New Yorkers. An Interview with Piper Bayard!

A Cheerios commercial with a bi-racial couple caused quite the stir, generating so many hateful, racist comments that Cheerios had to turn off the comments at YouTube. While that’s disturbing, there have been a couple of great LOL spoofs–the silver lining.

This video shows the original commercial and Deon Cole’s hysterical parody take on it:

And then we have this seam-splitter from Kenji America:

Congratulations to best selling author Kristen Lamb! She just finished her third book about social media, Rise of the Machines, and it’s outstanding. Check out her cover art by Corey Clubb of Go Bold Designs, the same fellow who did the art for Firelands. Change–Resistance is Futile

  1. K.B. Owen says:

    Thanks for the awesome shout-out, Piper! I’m looking forward to writing more for SocialIn.

    Love the mashup – the Cheerios spoofs are a hoot, and I love the bacon one, too (can’t eat a diamond, duh – bacon’s better).

    Have a fab weekend,

  2. Cheerios!
    Have a crunchy weekend – a real ring-a-ding one.
    (Nice links. Heading over to interview)

  3. tomwisk says:

    Loved the commercial send ups. As God is my witness I have never been inside a Krispy Kreme and after this gastronomic abomination I never will. Even if thet fulfill my kinkiest fantasies.

  4. Why did your interview not hit my radar screen earlier? Were I not already intellectually and emotionally invested in FIRELANDS. the interview would have pushed me over to The Amazon Buy It! cliff.

    Fun, fun links.

  5. Thanks for the shout-out, Piper! Coming right after the Krispy Kreme Joe *stops to swallow the ‘not saliva’* my discussion of narcissists vs. psychopaths should seem like a Sunday school picnic. 🙂

  6. Hmmn. Krispie Kreme Joe…tempting, but unavailable here in NZ so I’ll have to stick with the Double Down burger, sold here by KFC. Consists of a double filling without the burger, in a bag. Actually, no. on second thoughts,I’d rather stay home and eat broccoli (possibly deep fried with a beer ice-cream topping)…:-)

    Kim Dotcom is something of a celebrity here for all the obvious reasons!

    • Piper Bayard says:

      I’m glad to hear it about Kim Dotcom. I’m glad someone is talking, and someone is listening. The mainstream “media” here is ignoring the whole story at this point, except to publish about how Americans don’t fear the NSA and don’t mind being spied on, and how they can go back to sleep because Obama is on it. What most Americans don’t notice is that Obama stacked his administration with the spouses/parents/children/mistresses/pets of the mainstream media executives. Nothing but Obama mouthpieces at this point, just as with Benghazi. I am sad to say a vast number of Americans are dismissing PRISM, just as they have been told to do.

      As for deep fried broccoli, that sounds delicious! Oddly enough, the ice cream topping sounds okay, too. 🙂

  7. Loved your interview, loved the parodies of the bi-racial Cheerios commercial, but ‘Sayin’ in With Bacon’ was over the top! ha ha, thanks for sharing.

  8. Congratulations! You should self promote more because in the end, we benefit. 🙂 I’d prefer a Krispy Kreme grilled cheese!

Talk to us. We talk back.
