Who is behind the Whimsical Blasphemy Show?
The WB Show is owned, designed, curated and operated entirely by: Mercy (if that IS her real name).
A Gen X’er who embraces the FUTURE.
Mercy was one of Generation X’s last latchkey kids and grew up during the time when MTV truly was music televison, and was always on. Very grateful to have an outlet for all these songs and videos that still get stuck in my head to this day – the best and the WORST of them.
More of Mercy’s backstory:
During the 80’s, Little Mercy could easily be found by a boom box or VCR, sometimes both at once, finger waiting excitedly on the record button, for a song or video she liked to play so she could tape it to enjoy again and again and again, and will never get over having the ability to hear/watch anything she wants nowadays.
To her, music, and those who made it- with often wild and innovative concepts, fashion & personas- were a promise of a much more exciting future, vastly different from small town life she knew and found very boring.
She would often have her friends over from more strict families, whose parents banned MTV in their homes, to corrupt them with the glorious sights and sounds they were missing out on.
Mercy may or may not have had a business in elementary school with a friend taping explicit music from their vast collection for other kids who weren’t able to get it during “The Satanic Panic” era.
Mercy resides in Salem, MA and is never going to live anywhere else, ever again. She is an autonomous communications creative by trade and sees streaming as a productive and entertaining way to practice and improve digital media skills- along with the obvious reason of sharing music and videos she cherishes with others. A Siamese cat owns her soul.
