Last Week Tonight: Alex Jones

John Oliver is back! In this new episode, he talks about Alex Jones, the unhinged psycho who founded and hosts “InfoWars.” Whenever some inbred mongoloid leaves an inane comment on my blog, I picture an individual who is just as fucked in the head as Alex Jones is.

I first heard of this cretin back in 2011, when one of my brothers shoved his laptop computer at me and urged me to watch Alex Jones. I could barely stomach five minutes of the outrageous, incoherent propaganda that I saw, and wondered how on earth anyone with a functioning brain could believe such obvious bullshit. Then, I read some of the other blogs out there in cyberspace, and find myself asking the same question…

Les chats du toit de Strasbourg~

Some lovely photographs of roof-dwelling cats, courtesy of Cindy!

😎

Strasbourg’s cats live on steep rooftops,

rest on high windowsills,

sleep on chimney tops,

stalk pigeons on ridgelines, and enter and exit their homes via high rooftop windows.
They notice, eventually, the biped with telephoto, and I could see it shocked them, to be watched so quietly, so intently, like they watch everything.

Lucky felines. No bipedal landlubbing for these cool-cats.

They much prefer looking down on mere humans.


Of course, some poor cats have yet to claim their rooftop-aeries,


and have to settle for schlepping down-low with humans.

Cheers to you from all the cool cats~

Procter & Gamble Releases Powerful Video “The Talk” to Increase Awareness Around Bias as Part of “My Black is Beautiful” Campaign

This…this, right here. Very timely, and very much needed!

GOOD BLACK NEWS

A new video released Monday titled “The Talk” compellingly tackles the impact of racial bias through the lens of black parents in America. The video ― which was released by My Black Is Beautiful, a beauty brand owned by Procter & Gamble ― is a powerful two-minute clip that explores racial bias by depicting some of the burdens placed on parents of black children, who are challenged with having necessary but difficult discussions with their children about their survival and self-esteem.

The video follows several black parents who have talks with their children about the ways in which their skin color can affect how they are perceived and treated by others. In one scenario, a mom asks her son if he has his ID before heading to practice, in case he is stopped by police. In another…

5 On Friday: Conan at Comic-Con®!

Comic-Con® is over for 2017; my in-game Mid-Year Mayhem will be ending soon. Since it began last week I’ve been geeking out, grinding, and giving salty grief and guff to other gamers as I stomp, shred, and get rekt in return! Since I have gaming on the brain, I selected my five favourite Conan O’Brien Comic-Con® skits. He has been attending that specific event for the past three years, and the footage he shares on his show has been awesomely funny – laugh along with me as we head into another fun-filled weekend!

Musical Interlude: 5 On Friday

July is nearly over; August peeps ’round the bend. This day in history marked one of the first marches protesting the lynching and murders of African-Americans in Texas, Mississippi, Missouri, and other southern states. The “Silent Parade of 1917” was held in New York City. It’s a shame that white teachers in public schools don’t feel the need to teach this part of history to their students! This is why I put informative and educational posts here on my humble little blog from time to time – they are sorely needed. 100 years later, and things are still more or less the same. We’ve come a long way, and have much farther to go, but some are heavily invested in turning the clock back.

The weekend approaches, so how about some music? I will be gaming like a maniac as well, so tune in to my Twitch channel and watch the madness of Mid-Year Mayhem! I keep the laughter in slaughter on a regular basis…in-game, that is!

Shameless Gaming Promo: Mid-Year Mayhem! (Re-blogged)

Since the Mid-Year Mayhem in-game event is still in full swing, I figured it was the perfect time to re-blog this shameless gaming promotion! Many screen-shots are being taken, and more live-streaming of the slaughter is scheduled for Friday and through the weekend. Tune in for the fun!

*** DISCLAIMER: As always, I wanted to clarify that I receive no compensation of any sort for these personal gaming promotions. I do these of my own free will as a dedicated gamer, and as a long-time subscriber to this awesome game! ***

I’m happy to announce the fourth installment of an in-game, seasonal event: Mid-Year Mayhem will be celebrated in the battlefields and war-zone of The Elder Scrolls Online! As you might recall, the first event was the Witches’ Festival in October of last year. That was followed by the New Life Festival in December, which began on the Solstice and ended around the New Year.

The Vernal Equinox was celebrated with the Jester’s Festival, where one of the mementoes that could be earned was a branch of Sakura (桜 or 櫻): you can festoon fellow gamers and guild-mates with a shower of fragrant flower-petals whenever…

R.I.P. Jim Vance, 75, Washington DC’s Longest-Serving Local News Anchor

Another giant of journalism passed away on 22 July. In this day and age, we need many more like him to fill his shoes, and keep reminding us to maintain integrity in these divisive, troubled times.

In a city of news junkies and scores of high-profile figures in politics and the media, the most-watched journalist in Washington may well have been Jim Vance. With 45 years as the face of WRC-TV (Channel 4), he was the region’s longest-serving television news anchor. He presided over the area’s top-rated newscasts and became a public figure in his own right. He gained broad sympathy for his openness about his struggles with drugs and depression.

Mr. Vance, who was 75, died July 22. The death was announced by WRC-TV, where he had worked since 1969, but no further details were provided. He announced his diagnosis of cancer earlier this year.After three years as a reporter for Channel 4, Mr. Vance ascended to the anchor’s chair in 1972, putting him in the first wave of black news…
