  • Designated Survivor… while an interesting premise, is nothing but preachy Liberal Mush.

    Designated Survivor… while a promising and interesting premise, it has turned unto predictable crappy PeeCee nauseating liberal mush. What makes it worse is that it’s no surprise. Rich and privileged Hollywood these days... much prefers to preach and lecture us on our (perceived by them) “shortcomings” than to actually entertain. It IMHO will be their undoing.

    Liberal celebrities just can’t let it go. Hillary-loving singer Katy Perry gave an interview to Vogue for the May issue and recounted the “trauma” caused by the “scary” Donald Trump winning last November. As though she were suffering PTSD, Perry mourned, “I was really disheartened for a while; it just brought up a lot of trauma for me. Misogyny and sexism were in my childhood.”  She compared, “I have an issue with suppressive males and not being seen as equal. I felt like a little kid again being faced with a scary, controlling guy.” Perry added, “But it's an awakening...

    Could Apple buy Disney? It would be a huge deal, worth hundreds of billions of dollars — and that's what analysts are speculating about on Thursday. Research from RBC Capital Markets says such a merger would produce a "tech/media juggernaut like no other" — the combination of the biggest tech company in the world and a near-century-old cultural titan. "The resultant company would be massive, with enough cash and balance sheet capacity to change the nature of the hardware, service, and content industries," the analysts wrote in a note to investors....

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Last year, Sheryl Crow started a petition on Change.org to shorten the U.S. presidential election cycle. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter said she was exhausted by the mudslinging and divisive language that had dominated the discussion about the candidates. “I felt like it was becoming so hateful that I had to watch to make sure my kids didn’t pick up the remote and turn the TV on,” she said during a recent interview at her home in Nashville....

    President Donald Trump expressed Friday how proud he was of his grandchildren for their performance in honor of Chinese President Xi Jinping and Madame Peng Liyuan's official visit to the U.S. The president retweeted his daughter Ivanka Trump's tweet in which she had posted a video capturing her children, Arabella and Joseph Kushner's performance for the Chinese president and his wife. Trump's grandchildren, Arabella and her brother Joseph were seen singing a Chinese folk song "Jasmine" and reciting verses from the "Three-Character Classics" as well as Tang dynasty poems to the two presidents in the video, while Melania Trump, Ivanka...

    YouTube ^ | Unknown exactly | David Knox, a Scots bandsman
    I submit this for lovers of fine music, and if you shed a tear or two, that might be a good thing. I can't find out much about David Knox, the writer, except that he was a bandsman for a Scot military pipes band. I don't know if he's still alive. His composition is fairly recent. Kelvingrove Park is a public park located on the River Kelvin in the West End of the city of Glasgow, Scotland, containing the famous Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. This rendition of Rose of Kelvingrove is recorded by the pipers and band of the...

    Guido D’Arezzo, the inventor of modern musical notation, named his notes with an acrostic drawn from a hymn for the saint's feast day. Maybe you thought the names of the musical notes originated with Maria von Trapp, making up songs to entertain her stepchildren-to-be as they rode their bicycles through the Austrian countryside. But the real origin is much older.Modern musical notation was born around 1025 in Pomposa, on the Adriatic shore of Ferrara in Italy, when the Benedictine monk and music theorist Guido D’Arezzo noticed his fellow monks had difficulties remembering the melodies they were supposed to sing while...

    Singer Roger Daltrey of the rock band, The Who, voiced support for Brexit and took a shot at Hillary Clinton in an interview published Wednesday. In an interview with NME, Daltrey declared that withdrawal from the European Union will prove to be the right decision for the U.K. […] The singer then took the opportunity to comment on the 2016 presidential election, saying that Democrats lost the election because they put up a candidate so unpopular that “a dead dog” could have beaten her. …

    mainestategop ^ | Brian Ball
    Several days ago, one of my arch nemesis oldfartrants, a senile old hippie bum from West LA who has a YouTube channel advocating socialism has now called for the overthrow of Donald Trump. This, after spending nearly a decade referring to Conservatives as traitors and opponents of Barack Obama as seditionists. He attacks Trump comparing him to Hitler and attacking other conservatives such as Ron Paul, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Sarah Palin and so on. Yet now its not treason anymore to be in dissent, its no longer treason to want to overthrow an elected official like Trump or...

    There is no rejecting that in the past few decades, TELEVISION has actually ended up being the major center of numerous types of home entertainment. At the beginning, switching on the television meant tuning right into a few various shows on a handful of networks, with the occasional long function film included for something truly special. As the yeas passed, various other types of entertainment found an inviting residence on tv displays, particularly movies from VHS to Blu-rays and video games from a variety of different systems. The latter now represent a significant portion of the entertainment industry with millions...

    Rapper Bow Wow took to Twitter to defend his mentor Snoop Dogg in his public feud with President Donald Trump, but he drew in First Lady Melania Trump and in a way that was derogatory, offensive and sexist. He told the president he should shut his punk (executive) up about Dogg. He then if said the president didn’t stop attacking Dogg, “we” would take an action that suggests turning the First Lady into a prostitute. His tweet crossed several important lines. First it implied a certain attitude among rich, powerful, arrogant and misogynist men. It is that women only exist...

    Saturday Night Live made media headlines last night after their flagrant attack on First Daughter, Ivanka Trump. Scarlett Johansson starred as Ivanka, while the narrator slammed her as “complicit” in the perceived wrongdoings of her father. “She’s a woman who knows what she wants and knows what she’s doing.” The ad continued by making satirical, sarcastic remarks about Ivanka being a feminist and a champion for women before ending with Johansson running out of a gold door. The skit was in very poor taste, lacking class and humor. It reeked of liberals who resent powerful, strong women, which is an...
