The week’s antics

    • Kanye West ruined the best song on his Yeezus album by releasing this unnecessarily explicit video for it.I don’t think that’s Kim Kardashian’s real body. I think he was trying to play with the image of the naked woman bumper stickers that you see on the back of trucks. Watch for yourself:
  • 70 things somebody learned in their 20s. I will loudly stand in the Amen corner for numbers 12, 19, 31, 32, and 48.
  • “25 of the best, old Disney movies that need to be released from the vault” I wanted a Smart House and to be friends with Xenon and Nebula. Also, if they made another Halloween Town movie, I would watch.
  • George Zimmerman, the man accused of killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fl. is spiraling into a tornado that will likely end in drug use, mental break, and suicide. He needs to just move to Europe. Here’s the latest. *side note: In the Jackie Robinson biopic 42 he was terrorized by a crowd of baseball fans when he played in Sanford, Fl. I see a pattern here…

Now it’s time to watch Chicago Fire. So much is happening at Firehouse 51 or 87 or whichever one we’re trying to save from budget cuts these days.

4 things that caught my attention this week

  1. So I don’t have time to explain the spectrum, the transition from analog to digital, and how it all affects journalism and communications. What I can tell you is that the angle that the theatre community cares about is one that I haven’t thought about. Wireless microphones, like those used in live performance, fall under this Wireless Spectrum debacle and here’s why it matters http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-57488618-94/wireless-spectrum-what-it-is-and-why-you-should-care/
  2. 1990s girl group TLC’s former manager Pebbles is relentless in her pursuit of crazy, sexy, cool money. She was their manager under their first two albums and she took them for all that they could make. She made them pay $3 million for their name when they fired her as their manager. Since the TLC biopic came out on VH1 Pebbles has been threatening to sue the group for slander because she did not like the way that she was portrayed in the film. Here she is on The Wendy Williams Show trying to be relevant again http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1O3VHdcLpTQ
  3. A dating coach/author by the name of Justin Lookadoo spoke at a Texas high school about dating and evoked some strong reactions from the students http://jezebel.com/smart-texas-high-schoolers-lambast-dickhead-lecturer-on-1464428854. For extra kicks take the quiz http://www.rudateable.com/cool_quizzes.php.
  4. Rapper Nelly was interviewed by the Huffington Post http://live.huffingtonpost.com/r/segment/rapper-nelly-live/527acc6c78c90a3994000313
