Friday Funtime: Colbert, Conan, and ‘Wrecked!’

I think that a bit of comedy relief is needed, what with the bellicose atmosphere between Baby-Hands McDrumpf and Kim Jong-Un blanketing the week.

My taste in humour is not one that is easily pinned down, much like my personality or personal beliefs. Those who look to be offended by me, or anything that I say, are always going to be. I’m looking for positive and upbeat collaborators, not negative drama queens and self-absorbed shit-stirrers: so, the needless, mindless, and baseless criticisms of bullshit artists will no longer be entertained here.

😈

With that caveat, enjoy these five comedic clips that had me doubled over with laughter! Along with John Oliver and Samantha Bee, I rely on Conan O’Brien and Stephen Colbert to keep me smiling through these tense times. They, and the TBS television show ‘Wrecked,’ are genuine gems!

Mid-Week Amusements: Food & Comedy!

It’s a nice, relaxing Wednesday, and the delicious aroma of home-made beef stew is wafting through the house. Cooking is such an enjoyable thing to do, especially with fresh ingredients! I figured that I’d show a few of the vegetables which I like to use in stews, much like my previous post about the things I toss in with my chicken soup.

Onions, shallots, and garlic make up the base – I don’t think that any dinner is complete unless it has at least one of those flavourful bulbs included! Carrots may or may not be used, since the variety of root vegetables used more than makes up for their omission. These herbs and vegetables round out the meal:

Thyme

Rosemary

Oregano

Parsnip

Turnip

Rutabaga

Red potatoes

I love using fresh herbs of many different types…the picture below shows a few of my go-tos.

Baseball season is just around the corner – I’m looking forward to it, as always! When spring arrives, the “Boys of Summer” aren’t far behind…also, my comedy shows are back with new episodes, after being pre-empted by the overly long and drawn-out “March Madness.” Don’t get me wrong, I like basketball well enough. I just happen to prefer baseball, football (American, non-arena), and rugby if / when I can catch it on television!

Anyway, since I’m amusing myself with some choice comedy bits, I thought that I’d share them with you. Sometimes, a good laugh does a body good, and these clips had me in a fit of giggles!

Shining the Blacklight on American Democracy

Drumpf’s Agenda: Today, America…Tomorrow, the World!

Conan O’Brien talks about the United Airlines dress code

Conan O’Brien hits Comic-Con(R) Mad Max-Style (2015)

Finally, this post wouldn’t be complete without a couple of nods to yesterday’s post about bots and the role they play in various online scams. Behind every bot, troll, sock-puppet and cat-phish is someone looking to give you the old “Rick-Roll!”

I just had to re-blog and share this post…it’s too good! I love it…

Friday Fun-Time: “Hollow-Day” Edition!

Ah, December…the month where everyone that you know is suddenly going overboard with shoving holiday cheer down your throat, and blowing so much crap up your arse you feel like you’re going to fart snowflakes, tinsel, and candy canes! All of this hollow “good-will” starts well before Hallowe’en, mind you, so some of us are beyond sick of xmas before the end of November. That, combined with the paranoid screeching about the nonsensical, imaginary “war” on xmas has me completely over the whole “peace on Earth” thing which doesn’t seem to exist, as of late. Believe it or not, I’m not a pessimist – but, I can say that I’m fairly cynical! It isn’t about the glass being “half-full” or “half-empty,” I just look at the reality of a situation and call it what it is.

I’ve been noticing an interesting trend for at least a decade: the amount of “hard-luck” stories explode exponentially during this time of year, and have gotten worse with the popularity of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other “social” media sites. There was a story reported on the local news last month that I wanted to cite, but it is no longer available on the specific local station’s website, meaning it was exactly what I suspected it was – a fake, “hard-luck” story!

No, I’m not in a bad mood; I can certainly think of some recent posts I’ve seen on the blogs of others, and I’m a glowing, golden ray of sunshine, comparatively! In light of that, I’m going to share a few of my own personal Thanksgivoween and Hannukkwaanzamas favourites. For instance, my buddy Brian over at Bonnywood Manor did an awesome post about the “12 Shots of Xmas.” It reminded me of a song that used to be played on the local Seattle radio station KZOK-FM around this time of year, and after years of searching, I managed to find it again – it only took me 13 years to do so, LOL!

(The other video I had up was way funnier, but isn’t allowed to be played here! Click on this link for the better version)

Finally, here are my top three “hollow-day” favourites to close out this post. Hey – I’ve always said that my sense of humour isn’t easily understood, so don’t expect anything warm and fuzzy! Enjoy, and have a great weekend…I have to get back to the New Life Festival activities in Tamriel! Later, gators…

Tuesday Tidbits…13 December 2016

It’s a particularly awesome day, today! It’s a special one – why, you may ask? Because it is, that’s why! That should be good enough, I’d wager. I’ll give a little hint, though: it’s a day celebrated annually by some, and involves the giving of gifts and toasting good fortune, and the gift that I have is one that I’ve needed and wanted for some time! Anything that keeps me in fighting trim is necessary, and the garbage advertised on television leaves much to be desired – I’ve yet to see my machine advertised anywhere, personally; and it is a brand that has been around for 20 years or more. Yes, I’m now the proud owner of a circuit-training home gym and couldn’t be happier! Free-weights, kettle-bells, and ellipticals are fine and dandy, but my ideal workout has always included a “universal” machine – and, best of all, I don’t have to go to a stinky, sweaty, germ-filled “fitness center!” How anyone can stand those places is beyond me…seriously, every single time I tried to have a membership in any sort of health club, I would get sick within a week no matter how much I cleaned the machines before and after I used them. I didn’t pay to get sick, I paid to work-out, but muscle-heads and cheese-cakes were too busy primping and posing on the machines instead of using them, so they were a waste of my time and money, LOL! Exercising in the peace, quiet, and comfort of my own home is best for me.

It’s cold out there, but I don’t mind because I was able to see the beautiful moon last night, and should be able to see it again tonight when it reaches complete fullness. Clear skies means colder weather, but the sunshine is very refreshing after what seems like a straight month and a half of clouds, rain, hail, snow, and nearly every other type of precipitation you can imagine, except for sleet! Gotta bundle up before walking on the beach…

Time for some music, and I have to do some cooking! Beef stew for lunch, game hens for dinner…the only thing that sucks about cooking is the cleaning and prepping, but it’s still worth it. Talk to ya later, gators!

Cotton-Headed Ninny Muggins

LOL – stupid people definitely make me squint; that’s why I don’t interact with them!
I love this post!

Friday Fun & Foolishness!!!

Well, whaddya know…we actually got some snow! It started coming down yesterday morning at around 11:30 PST, changing back to rain near midnight. I enjoyed it while it was around – I even went out and built a little snowman on the top of my car, LOL

Since it’s Friday and I’m in a good mood, I figured I’d treat you to some silly comedy, funny memes, and a bit of music…enjoy while I get back to doing some gaming!

Thursday Thoughts: 17 November 2016

Wow – this month is just over halfway over, already! What with the recent election and doing my best to meet the daily word-count challenge of NaNoWriMo, I’ve been insanely busy – but it is enjoyable, believe it or not! I didn’t assume that the challenge would be easy…after all, if something is easy, then it can’t qualify as a challenge, now, can it? I will say that it is a worthy challenge, so I’ve been adjusting my writing schedule as needed, so as not to be overwhelmed or frustrated. One cannot force inspiration, and if I’m staring at a computer screen blankly, with nothing coming to mind, then trying to push myself isn’t going to work. Those are the times I unplug from the computer completely and do something else! My “unplugging” is why I’ve barely been able to keep up with even 1/10th of the blogs that I follow! Apologies to my friends and acquaintances for my absence…I at least try to “like” posts here and there, even if I can’t comment as much. The month will be over before I know it, though, and things can get back to some semblance or normalcy…whatever that is!
XD

Speaking of gaming, there is a “free play” weekend promotion going on for the game that I’m hopelessly and shamelessly addicted to. It’s so free, you don’t even have to purchase The Elder Scrolls Online game. Simply click on this link for the details – if you have a Steam account, then you’re halfway there! I do notice though, that many gamers (including myself) definitely have a preference of the genres that we play. Me, I like the MUDs and RPGs, whether they’re MMOs or not. I also like the “collect & build” games, including StarCraft, Command & Conquer, and Total Annihilation. The only FPS-types that I liked were Half-Life and Half-Life 2…it doesn’t hurt that I’m actually in one of those games – at least I can admit my favouritisms and why, LOL

In honour of Skyrim’s newest version recently being released, and the free-play weekend going on, I figured that I’d add the links of my three favourite “Clueless Gamer” clips from Conan O’Brien’s site, TeamCoco.com. They are some of the funniest things that I’ve ever seen, so why wait for Friday to watch them? Thursday has been called “Friday Eve” by myself and many others for a few years, so let’s get the weekend started early, and on a fun-filled note! I hope that you enjoyed the hidden links scattered about, and that the five songs at the end of the post get you dancing around. Later, gators!

Conan O’Brien: Clueless Gamer – “Skyrim” review

Conan O’Brien: Clueless Gamer Big Game Showdown – “Mortal Kombat X”

Random Saturday Screen-shots & Silliness!

I’m celebrating the fact that the month is nearly over, and my jury duty is completed! Enjoy these random screen-shots of some recent gaming, and three awesome episodes of one of my favourite comedies of all time, Absolutely Fabulous. I hope that they make you laugh as much as I did!
