Five on Friday: Conan @ SDCC

For today’s “Five on Friday” post, I selected my favourite clips of Conan O’Brien at San Diego Comic-Con and a special clip of him playing World of Warcraft at BlizzCon.

Nelson Mandela Day

Today marks Nelson Mandela Day, honoring a great leader who passed away in December of 2013. He would have been 100 years of age today.

Former President Barack Obama spoke in Johannesburg, South Africa yesterday, giving a speech at the annual Mandela lecture. I selected three excellent portions of his speech to post today, because the importance and necessity of what he said needs to be heard loud and clear.

Communication is a two-way street. When people want to misconstrue what you say, or refuse to listen to you at all, communication becomes impossible.

Don’t assume that I’m silent when you have plugged your ears and don’t want to hear what I have to say. I still speak about important things. I choose to talk with people who have open minds and hearts, not miserable fucks who run everything and everyone down while claiming that they have all of the answers for a “perfect” life.

Thursday Comedy Mashup

“Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” will be back next week, so here is a comedy mashup of some good stuff from the past week.

Five on Friday: Comedy Mash-Up

Full Frontal Thursday: Sanctioned Child Abuse & The Cult of Impeachment

In today’s installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam talks about Drumpf’s sickening practice of tearing children away from their mothers at the southern border. It’s interesting that she believes the lie that it started under Obama, but white women always want to blame a black guy or gal for something.

Also, Mike Rubens attends a meeting of the “Cult of Impeachment” which is headed up by Tom Steyer. Impeachment does sound nice, but it helps to think about what the entire process entails. Drumpf is horrible, yes. Pence just might be worse. That could be why many politicians on either side aren’t wanting to jump on that particular bandwagon.

Sunday Morning Anime

Here are a couple of endings from the anime JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure for your Sunday morning entertainment.

I love the various references to different artists in the episodes they conclude.

Full Frontal Thursday: Firings, Birth Control, & the 15-Year War in Iraq

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam talks about the firings of nearly everyone who has spent any amount of time in the same room as Baby-Hands McDrumpf.

She also joins up with Laurie Metcalf to shine a spotlight on the history of women’s pain, and how birth-control pills are the only option women are given for issues such as endometriosis, dysmenorrhea, and PCOS, to name a few.

Finally, she reminds us that we have been at war in Iraq for 15 years. Seems like only yesterday when the lie was told that hurled the USA into that quagmire.

Drunk History Lessons

Here are a few short, “Drunk History” lessons. I love that show.

Saturday Sensibility

No preface needed. Watch, listen, and learn, if you have the capacity and capability to do so.
