  • Celebs who vow to leave the country if Trump becomes president

    Rolling Out ^ | April 27, 2016 | Kacie Whaley
    A lot of liberal celebrities are not pleased with Donald Trump’s lead in the 2016 presidential race. In fact, many are promising to leave the United States if the Republican front-runner is elected. Trump has gotten wind of this, and seems to be having fun with the idea. On a Tuesday episode of “Fox and Friends,” the hosts told Trump that stars such as comediennes Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donell and actress Lena Dunham said they would flee the country if he becomes president. “We’ll get rid of Rosie? Oh, I love it. Now I have to get elected!” he...

    What's going on behind that shield? Understand this about the media’s pursuit of agendas: It’s often not so much how they cover stories, as it is which stories they choose to cover at all. Let a bunch of people on social media start using the hashtag #IndictHillary, and I seriously doubt it gets any attention. A bunch of people on social media wanting something is not a story.
  • Video: Obama beat boxes for Vietnam's 'queen of hip hop'

    The London Telegraph ^ | May 25, 2016 | James Rothwell and Jirtme Cartillier
    Barack Obama has wrapped up his historic visit to Vietnam by throwing down some beats for a Vietnamese rapper. The President was taking questions at a town hall-style meeting in Ho Chi Minh city when a young woman introduced herself as a hip hop artist before asking her question. Mr Obama immediately invited her to show off her talent, asking "do you need a few beats?" The woman, named Suboi and renowned as Vietnam's "queen of hip hop," then serenaded Obama with Vietnamese lyrics about whether people are really happy if they have lots of money. Seemingly delighted with the...

    Hey everyone been taking a break for awhile and I wanted to talk about a new TV show that really isn't that new its been around for awhile and I only recently began to watch some of it at the behest of my Catholic friends. They asked me to write about it and give my take on it because this show is Anti-catholic and irreverent. Also the main character is a queer. The writer is New York Times columnist and comedian Dan Savage, an Irish ex-Catholic homosexual liberal. Savage's articles are generally crap. Attacks on Christians, particularly catholics, attacks on...

    Breitbart - Big Journalism ^ | 5-20-2016 | Breitbart News
    Gabriel Sherman writes that the poor reaction to Megyn Kelly’s primetime FOX special, Megyn Kelly Presents, has spooked the news anchor as she positions herself for negotiations at the end of her Fox News contract–so much so that a phone call to her publicist led to an immediate hang-up. From New York Magazine: Megyn Kelly’s much-publicized broadcast special with Donald Trump was supposed to launch the Fox News star into the stratosphere of television anchordom. Instead, the widely panned show seems to have achieved the opposite result: It exposed the extent of her limited mainstream appeal. Kelly drew just 4.8...

    Youtube ^ | 11-24-2010 | Bocageek
    "One of our Submarines" is a song by British new wave/synth pop musician Thomas Dolby. The song was recorded in August 1982 and remains a favorite among Thomas Dolby fans. Originally written for The Thompson Twins, the track was released in a 12" extended version (found on the successful 1982 "Blinded by Science" EP) clocking in at 7:18, as well as in the album version found on The Golden Age of Wireless. The inspiration for the song was Dolby's late uncle, who died as a submarine crewman during World War II. The submarine that his uncle served on sank due...

    One of the benefits of living in New York City-a place which often feels like it was expressly designed to discourage your presence-is the seemingly endless opportunities to see amazing, live music acts. Just within the past decade I’ve had the chance to watch the New York Festival Orchestra perform a remarkable tribute to the victims of the 2011 Japanese earthquake, meet the Bangles at the Highline Ballroom, see a remarkable chamber orchestra at Lincoln Center, and attend concerts by groups and individual artists like Hello Seahorse, They Might Be Giants, Dramarama, Stevie Wonder, Los Lobos, Big Daddy Kane, Bad...

And also, the party has glorious dance music, over-the-top costumes, and human-sized hamster wheels. That’s how it feels to be an American who is only now finding out about Eurovision Song Contest. From what I can gather, the European Song Contest is like American Idol in its heyday, if you took every boring white guy with a guitar and replaced him with a techno dancer in...

    When I tell people I'm moving to Berlin for the summer, I usually get one of two reactions: 1. Berlin! Such a cool city. I'm jealous! 2. Why? I would never step foot in Germany. Berlin made headlines among Israelis when the "Milky controversy" broke out in 2014. An Israeli Berliner bragged how cheap the cost of living is in Berlin compared to Israel, if grocery receipts are the judge. According to the chocolate pudding index (the Israeli brand being “Milky), the difference is 300 percent. My calculations are not necessarily financial, although I don’t think I could afford living...

    A free concert is very nice, but it's a reminder that Cuba remains in communist squalor It was awfully nice of the Rolling Stones to go to Havana this past weekend and play a concert for free. I’m sure the longtime victims of communism appreciated the gift - especially since exposure to any media that would have made them aware the Rolling Stones exist put them in jeopardy of prison under the Castro regime that Barack Obama thinks we can learn from about civil rights. The Stones may be almost as old as the Castros, but they rocked, as they...

Everyone on the set was distraught except Tarantino, who reportedly smiled: The head of the museum was furious when he found out the guitar had been wrecked not in a random accident, but because Tarantino had failed to tell Kurt Russell about...

She did fine with the first part, naming Abraham Lincoln, but then dipped into the history of Reconstruction, bemoaning the vengeful way in which the North targeted the South after Lincoln's assassination. You know, he was willing to reconcile and forgive. And I don't know what our country might have been like had he...

For example, Kidd explained to Mercer and dePaul his conception of the "Lonesome Polecat" number, the lament of the brothers for the women, and the two worked out the music and lyrics. To perform the electrifying dance numbers and grueling action sequences, choreographer Michael Kidd wanted dancers to portray all six of Adam Pontipee's rough and tumble brothers. Kidd said...
