I don’t watch award shows because time is precious and these shows are such a waste of time. At one point that night twitter was ablaze with ‘what the hell just happened at the Oscars? ‘…so of course I had to find out. Wow. Right? Anyway, everyone seems to have an opinion on that slap heard round the world. I might as well get in on it too!
Although poking fun at a person’s disability, at a person’s issues etc isn’t right I am team Chris all the way. The joke wasn’t all that bad but more importantly there is no place for violence. Is it possible that Chris Rock really didn’t know about Jada’s alopecia? It’s possible. I mean not every celebrity is in tune with the goings on of every other celebrity. I didn’t know and I am not a celebrity. And this woman and her red table spills so much TMI it’s ridiculous!
We can speculate all we want about what triggered Will’s Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde moment. Only he really knows. Folks are speculating that he’s a broken man who just flipped. Some folk in the industry claim he’s a thug. Who knows. But…
There seems to be a lot of validity in all of the above. I buy into these opinions.
There’s no doubt Will worked hard to get where is he but I do think it’s a fair statement to say that, that whole family does carry itself with entitlement. I mean just think about what he did. Nevermind about whether he was asked to leave or not. The man got up, slapped another man on live TV and his walk back was so full of attitude it was disgusting. And to boot he sat right back down knowing very well nothing would happen to him because of who he is.
My heart sank for Chris. And considering all the stuff that is now coming out about his childhood bullying days really adds to how much I feel for Chris. The fact he continued on and kept his composure as best he could is commendable. We all have demons and time heals so in time this should go away. Having said that I don’t know that Will will ever be looked at the same way.. But then again time will tell.
And get a load of this.. Almost by divine intervention.. This YT video hits my feed.. On the day I decided to write this up. Alan recaps and analyzes that infamous red table talk about the entanglement. Cringe worthy watching a broken man listening to that rubbish.
Btw Alan Ritchson is amazing as Reacher.. And I have watched some of his other YT videos. I am not much for religion but this man is very well spoken and insightful. He looks to have an amazing outlook to life.
Sunday morning coffee with a little musing: To Parler or not to Parlez?
Is what happened to parler fair? Being singled out the way it was after the nonsense that happened on Capitol Hill? Is what happened to parler a serious hit to freedom of speech? it’s a bit of a slippery slope but in the end it was the right decision.. regardless of those conspiracists that think otherwise.
Paraphrased from the mouth of the CPO..
Parler.. A platform where you can speak freely, where u will not be fact checked and told how to think, what to read etc…
So basically u can spew a bunch of lies and that’s ok u won’t be called out on it .. Because u know in today’s world it’s not about truth… it’s about ‘your‘ truth.
Every social media platform has its share of toxicity. I don’t think any of these platforms started out that way. That wasn’t the intention behind the platform. Unfortunately it devolved into that because unfortunately in this world of ours there are scumbags on every side. Parler on the other hand was created specifically for that, masked under the veil of ‘freedom of speech’ nonsense. It’s a group of like minded toxic people spewing lies, conspiracy theories, nonsense and more importantly, violence without accountability. And now they’re getting a little help from Russia. And maybe it’s just me but .. A little bit of irony, no? Russia and freedom of speech.
@Marvel #Punisher: So Much Punishment…For Me.
Omg, omg, omg and one more for good measure… O.M.G! Soooo much violence. I have watched all the previous #Netflix #Marvel series in either one sitting or over a couple days. Punisher took a couple weeks.
The amount of violence in this series is staggering. I am not one for violence and it was very difficult to watch through some of the scenes. It’s why you”ll never see me watch MMA. The last two episodes especially… wow.. I was doing the sign of the cross constantly.. And by the way… not a good idea having food during these ridiculously violent and gory scenes.
As for the series itself. It isn’t too bad. The storyline was decent. I sure despised the villains. We all know that we haven’t seen the last of Russo. After the first four episodes I was questioning the choice of Jon Bernthal for the role but as the series went on I realized that he’s perfect for the role. It’s incredible how much punishment he was able to take 😜. Pretty unrealistic if you ask me but hey… he’s the punisher. He can take as much as he gives, I guess. His sidekick ‘micro’ is a fantastic sidekick. Loved him. I am looking forward to Punisher 2 but I’m ok if they take their sweet time.. Like nice and easy. I need to recover.
My ‘Joe Dirt’ thoughts on Holly v Ronda
Ok, so I really have no business critiquing #MMA… I don’t watch the sport because I find it violent and I can’t deal with violence. However, I can still have somewhat of an opinion. There’s no doubt that Ronda has paid her dues and is deserving of all her success in the sport. She’s one hell of an athlete.. but it’s clear that the bloated head was starting to rear it’s ugly head and probably ended up weighing her down during the fight on saturday. Ya, that must be it. Lol… Anyway, I think the best thing for Ronda and the sport is what happened on saturday. Holly won. So proud of Holly and I don’t even know her. Lol. So happy for the so called ‘underdog’.
As I mentioned earlier I am anti violence but i’m glad Ronda got her ass whooped. Holly was bad ass impressive. A good lesson in humility. So you’re a great athlete.. show some humility. Nope. Not Ronda. So what’s the cure for this? A good old fashion ass whooping.. I mean did u see how Holly tossed Ronda like a salad? It was unreal. Anyway this was a great way to get Ronda off her high horse and back to reality.
All hail the new champ, Holly!! Who btw is hawt and I’d have no issue at all if she assaulted me and wrapped her long luscious legs around my neck. None whatsoever.
