Sorry I’ve been gone so long folks. I’ve been busy moving into our new digs, and we just got the intertubes back up today. Did I miss anything?
Ya know, it’s her life. If Miley Cyrus wants to go on national tv and do this sort of thing, I’m not going to judge. Barely anybody said a word when it was Prince making shadow puppets of his junk during the Super Bowl half time show a few years back; why is this such a big deal?
Though I haven’t read the books, I’m a huge fan of Game of Thrones. My wife and I have been watching the series from the beginning. While there have been several jaw dropping moments during it’s run, last night’s wedding reception scene was one of the jaw droppingist. After this last episode, I am convinced that GOT author George R. R. Martin is out to kill everyone and everything. Jeez, the Starks are hard to kill? They’re dropping like flies!
Here are some funny as hell reactions to Sunday night’s episode. I’m still in shock.
Are you a fan of GOT? What was your reaction to this latest blood spattered character purge?
I really have no idea why brawls in Korean baseball occur like this, but it’s funny as hell. It’s too bad we can’t settle all of our conflicts this way. :)
Having a rough day or week? Then you simply must check out Too Cute! On Animal Planet. It’s an hour of pure AWWWWesomness. The show is so sweet, that you could sprinkle it over your cereal, and still have enough left over to bake cookies :)
I just now got around to watching this YouTube video starring Samuel L. Jackson. This has to be one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen! There are a lot of Romney supporters who do need to “wake the fuck up.” If you’re not a rich white straight male, he’s going to fuck you, every last one of you. Please, educate yourself to the truth and get out and vote. It’s imperative that we as a collective group tell the GOP that we’ve had enough of their bull shit.
The DNC kicked off last night with some fiery, impassioned speeches that focused on government doing right by Americans, rather than Americans doing for the corporate world. While there were certainly some half truths and political cherry picking, blatant lying such as what we saw last week does not seem to be on the agenda.
The best of the best from last night comes in a four pack: San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro dazzled with an effective but not overly partisan criticism of Mitt Romney. Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick fired up the crowd with his show us your backbone speech. Former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland lobbed several crowd pleasing cannonballs at the GOP, my favorite being this: “If Mitt Romney was Santa Claus, he would fire the reindeer and outsource the elves.”
The fourth and brightest star of last nights activities was Michelle Obama. Her speech touched on humble beginnings and hard work, as well as doing right by others. It was the antithesis of the message conveyed so far from an overly increasing elitist, out of touch GOP. Hopefully, the rest of the convention is as positive as last night, and hopefully, there will be no verbal attacks on inanimate objects. Although, I find it hard tell the difference between Mitt and my living room furniture, other than the fact that my furniture has colors other than white.
