I’m not intending for this to be as cuntish as I’m sure it will seem to some of you, but I have an honest question: Are the British excellent at queuing BECAUSE they’ve dealt with disasters like Hillsborough before, or DESPITE disasters like Hillsborough?
It’s almost embarrassing how much I laughed at this.
The British have no rights to criticize our use of the word “Soccer”. If they hated the term so much, they shouldn’t have invented it.
Wait… you can’t pronounce “Craig Ferguson”? Or is there something else I’m missing here?
Hey, everybody, I think they put yoga pants in there twice
One amendment I would make: “What’s the problem with those names? How many of them are of the caliber that you would put them on one of the flagship programs of the genre?” … should have read … “What’s the problem with those names? PUT IT THIS WAY: How many of them are of the caliber that you would put them on one of the flagship programs of the genre?”
Here’s the thing: The Late Show on CBS is a big deal. That gig really should go to someone with the cache and skill set to handle it. There are a TON of women and POC that are worthy of a chance to do late night, but NONE of them are (a) on par with Colbert in terms of having the skill set to do it, (b) currently available to do it and (c) likely to be willing to do it. Tina Fey is probably the closest there is to meeting all three of those criteria. Amy Poehler and Ellen Degeneres meet (a) and possibly (c) but are currently busy with other gigs. Chris Rock and Dave Chapelle meet (a) and (b), but aren’t likely to be interested in this kind of gig. That said, there are plenty of people out there who deserve a shot at late night. There are plenty of faces that pop up in this article, but you could really go on and on (Aisha Tyler, Jane Lynch, Wyatt Cenac, and loads more) with the names of people that would be good at a late night talk show. There are even some (W. Kamau Bell, Chelsea Handler, Arsenio, hell even Joan Rivers) that actually HAVE had late night talk shows. And this is to say nothing of the long list of people that have had success in daytime talk formats (Oprah, Ellen, Rosie O’Donnell, etc.). What’s the problem with those names? How many of them are of the caliber that you would put them on one of the flagship programs of the genre? I could see many of those names getting a chance to do something in a late night timeslot, like how Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Fallon and Craig Ferguson were able to do. But those were all names that (at the time) you would never have given a flagship job to right out the bat without giving them something else to prove themselves on first. To insist otherwise is to say that someone should’ve gotten the Late Show gig simply because they weren’t a white male, and while that may be karmic to some extent, that’s still just plain wrong.
Ooof, Lorde just didn’t sound good in this one.
Danny DeVito worked with a part of the human anatomy that he could barely reach when his customers were sitting down?
Nevermind. I missed that this was an elective course that they were creating, and that it’s not the only ethnicity getting this treatment. I recant my previous posts.
It truly is much more of a melting pot (and an integrated one, at that) than most would think. I think that’s what actually surprises me about it: highlighting the Mexican-American experience explicitly seems like it distracts from the other ethnicities that define the history and culture of Texas.
Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to have “Texas History” or “Social Studies of Texan Culture” as mandatory classes? Mexican-American issues are going to inherently fall under those two categories, considering the importance of Mexico on the overall history of Texas (past and present). It seems odd to single out Mexican-Americans in this way, especially since you KNOW that it wouldn’t fly to highlight the other ethnicities (the Native Americans and Eastern Europeans) that formulate the core of what became Texan culture.
I was hoping that the perfect way to deal with it was to try to find ways to get them to sing other, better songs.
Louis CK needs to make a call to Jack Dall and get himself ready.
It’s kind of torturous to read this right after eating my own lunch.
This would be more interesting if we could see how many people chose if each of those albums.
FIBs To everyone else, it’s the little lies to you tell people.
To Chicago, it’s all your friends and neighbors.
And it’s only just beginning…
*sigh* I got Leonard. *blows raspberry*
Everyone knows that the South is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay worse on all of these fronts than the Midwest.
Fine by me.
Wait… Frigid Tosspots? Are you referring to the Packers as chronic masturbaters or something?
Oh, sure. Go on and be reasonable on the internet. How dare you.
Half of these are lies. LIES I TELL YOU.
For #1, I think Alton Brown was on to something with his idea of using tins instead of glass jars. Light not be as bad as air exposure when it comes to keeping spices fresh, but it’s certainly something to eliminate when you can.
Counterpoint: I’ve never had sex after being in bacon.
Let’s not go overboard here. Nobody (male or female; gay, straight or otherwise; in any body type that there is) looks good in mens formalwear once it gets all loose and sloppy, like it is in the first two pictures of Ms. Page in menswear here. I have no other arguments, though. Being YOURSELF when you dress is the best fashion sense there is (not to mention… shouldn’t that be the point, anyway?).
Oddly enough, it drives me up the wall for reasons that have little to do with grammar. (Sarcastic translation: “It annoys because not grammar” :D) It bothers me more because I think it is a half-assed way to make a point. It tells us why the author thinks the video is trending without really telling us anything at all. I’ll admit that there’s a part of me that appreciates the fact that I’m trusted to connect the dots so the author can use fewer words, but I still feel like the “because ___” line of reasoning is just a shorthand for the inability to articulate one’s ideas. (Sarcastic translation: “It bothers me because lazy, but I do like dots”)
