Why Did The DOJ Reword The Orlando 911 Transcripts?

June 20, 2016 in Commentary, News, Review, Society

It seems very odd that the DOJ would want to take the transcripts from the 911 call of the terrorist attack in Orlando and change the words. What purpose does that serve?

They took out references to ISIS. They also changed Allah to God. It’s hard to imagine why they would want to make those changes. You’d have to have been in the room when they were discussing the decision to be politically correct? Rewrite history? Dial down the fact that the shooter was loyal to ISIS and that this was an act of terror?

Who knows? Maybe all of those reasons fit. So, we need the recordings. And by the way, DOJ we are all grown people. We can handle the truth. Keeping sensitive information secret is what you do to five year olds. We don’t need coddled like that.

They released this statement:
“The purpose of releasing the partial transcript of the shooter’s interaction with 911 operators was to provide transparency, while remaining sensitive to the interests of the surviving victims, their families, and the integrity of the ongoing investigation. We also did not want to provide the killer or terrorist organizations with a publicity platform for hateful propaganda. Unfortunately, the unreleased portions of the transcript that named the terrorist organizations and leaders have caused an unnecessary distraction from the hard work that the FBI and our law enforcement partners have been doing to investigate this heinous crime. As much of this information had been previously reported, we have re-issued the complete transcript to include these references in order to provide the highest level of transparency possible under the circumstances.”

In The Single Lane Again, Kaley Cuoco Comes Around About The Sad Things About Her Life

June 19, 2016 in Celebrities, Commentary, Review

My girlfriend is single once again and she’s carrying herself like a boss. The tattoo of her wedding date is gone and her name is back to normal. Kaley Cuoco’s split from Ryan Sweeting came abruptly and the divorce was very swift. After only being married for three years, Kaley was a free and single spirit once again.

But, she had to come clean about a few things she’s says are sad about her life. Of course, everyone has their own reflections after a breakup. Was it you? Was it them? Did he change? Did she change?

Plenty to think about and it’s not a bad thing to think. Not everything should be about going from one thing to another without wondering how you got where you are. But, some reflections can lead people to the wrong conclusions about themselves.

Kaley definitely won’t let that happen. She’ll put it all together and move on to bigger and better things. So, let’s see what’s in this list of things that make her sad.

Her Up And Curly Hot Look

It appears Ryan was a bad dietary influence. He ate way too much food and it looks like she started to adopt some of his bad eating habits.

In A Hot Red Dress

She might feel bad about it. But by the looks of her, it didn’t affect her at all. She might tell us stories of going to the gym a few extra times to take the extra weight off. But she looks as good as she ever did, if not better.

Getting Ready In The Mirror

Of course, another thing that made her sad is the tattoo that she got to commemorate the wedding. It was the Roman numerals for their wedding date. But as I mentioned earlier, that baby is gone.

One Of My Favorites Of Her

She put a moth over it. It was a good choices because it was big enough and perfect to cover up the numbers. Over time, she just might find some meaning like what it’s like to go into a cocoon and come out completely reborn as someone different.

Oh Look…Another One Of My Favorites

on her back
In a deeper issue, she admitted to being addicted to Afrin. When rumors were flying about her getting a nose job, she addressed them making a very adamant statement that it wasn’t for cosmetic purposes. She went under the knife because of her addiction.

On The Red Carpet In Black

She had to have sinus surgery. Her addiction was so bad that she was choosing her purses accordingly to smuggle Afrin into things like award shows. She would literally be under the table snorting it up.

To which I say, her nose is perfect and we all have our vices. Carry on!

Making Starbucks Look Good

Digging deeper, she admitted to getting a boob job. But, it was back when she was 18 and it wasn’t for the typical reason other women do it. She didn’t do it to increase her bra size tremendously. She simply had an ill feeling about her proportion. Her implants balanced her out and it gave her more confidence in her body.

And My Absolute Favorite

super hot black bikini
Finally, she admits to being self-absorbed. She says she’s obsessed about the negative comments fans make about her online. She let’s it affect her.

But, I submit that celebrities naturally are self-absorbed and somewhat have to be. The media demands that they be perfect at all times and points out flaws fans wouldn’t even notice. It’s a tough industry and keeping the fans, and the jobs, and the attention means staying on top of your game.

Kaley is doing it with grace. She is far from fading away into insignificance. I can actually imagine her having a crazy career that lasts long into her years because she’s one of those who will find a way to stay relevant while others her age will be falling off the map.

What Started Out As A Motorcycle Ride Gone Wrong Became Poetry In Motion

April 14, 2016 in Commentary, Entertainment, Events, News, Review

They were riding on a rainy day. The roads were wet. Anyone can tell you that’s not the best time to go for a ride.

But, that’s what they wanted to do. So, they put on their riding gear. Good thing too! It’s the kind of gear that protects you from head to toe.

If you go sliding down the road, half your skin doesn’t get left behind. Ladies in Daisy Dukes and half shirts might look sexy on the back of a bike. But, anyone can lay a bike down. All that sexy goes away when she’s in a hospital bed covered in second degree road rashes.

In fact, that’s just what this couple did that day. He laid the bike down in the middle of the road. It could have turned out tragic. It looked like a very bad wreck at first. The bike is flying and the couple is sliding down the road away from it.

But then, the video shows the slow motion action. It’s actually poetic beauty. True love was on the side of this couple as they faced what could have been the end together. But, it was the fact that they were together that saved both their lives.

Is There Such A Thing As Having ‘Too Much Beautiful?’

April 11, 2016 in Celebrities, Commentary, Entertainment, Review, Shows, Television

Catching The Catch on ABC, I’ve had to shake my head more than once when I’ve looked at Mireille Enos. In the first episode, she glanced a smile at fiance and professional con artist Benjamin Jones, played by Parenthood star Peter Krause. There was too much beauty on her face at one time. How can someone have that much beauty on one face?

It’s an interesting love affair I have for her. When she doesn’t have any makeup on, I can see the real beauty that lies beneath. But when her face has color and her lashes tease, she does this magical thing that just kicks you in the gut. And when you can’t breathe from a kick in the gut, everything’s beautiful.

how ben conned aliceShe has this sizzling look across her face. Sometimes when she’s smiling, you can’t tell if anger lies beneath the brightness of her face. Her eyes don’t give it away. Your knees just wobble and your heart beats twice as fast like it’s just going to jump out of your chest.

But when she’s mad, you know it. That’s one awesome trick she pulls off nicely. When her face goes solid and her eyes stare at you with the coldness of a woman scorned, hide! Find a place stronger than stone. She’ll cut you down with a look and you’ll never recover. Your heart will be broken if you’re ever on the receiving end of her disdain.

If you haven’t caught up yet, The Catch has an interesting twist. She’s a professional investigator who is the best at getting the con. But this time, the con got her. Played her beautifully from the first moment they met when he got her to come to him. As they explain in the show, that’s how a con gets you. They make you do all the giving, so they never have to ask.

What an interesting concept? She came to him to chase down his business. But, he turned her down as a client to keep the door open. He didn’t initiate a sex life with her. He sat back and relaxed while she climbed on top of him. Wow! This guy is good!

Then, they go into how he didn’t even ask her to marry him. When she flashes back through that conversation, she realizes that she actually asked him to marry her. Whoa! The professional investigator dropped her guard and fell for the best con ever. No wonder she gave him over a million dollars and of course, that’s about the time he split.

But, that’s just the beginning of the story…

Exposing A 17 Year Old’s Nipple Is Unacceptable, Except Of Course If You’re Madonna

March 24, 2016 in Celebrities, Commentary, Entertainment, News, Review, Shows

Madonna is the queen of shock value. That is true. But, that was always because it was herself she was exposing.

When she started kissing other stars, that took it to another level. But, that’s okay too. They are legal and that’s a part of entertainment.

This time, it went a bit further. Actually, it stepped into a whole slew of things wrong with it. But, there is a major difference.

First of all, this happened in Australia and the age of consent is 16. So, Australia’s law would only persecute Madonna if the victim complained. Josephine Georgiou is a 17 year old aspiring model who had this to say, “Seriously, why would I sue Madonna for the best moment of my life?”

So, there’s no issue. Josephine just might go on to become a very famous model after this incident and Madonna once again pushes the envelope. So, what’s different?

But, That’s Entertainment

Lady Gaga Brings Down The Tears At The Oscars With ‘Til It Happens To You’

March 3, 2016 in Celebrities, Commentary, Entertainment, Music, News, Review, Shows, Society, Television

The message is clear. You don’t know how it feels until it happens to you. What is she talking about?

She’s talking about rape. Finding a credible statistic on rape is difficult because many of them go unreported. The victims might be ashamed. They may not want to put their business out there. They may not want to be dragged through the legal system of getting checked at the hospital, getting interrogated by police, running through that moment over and over again until they just want to scream.

There are plenty of reasons that a rape victim won’t ask for help. But, the U.S. Department of Justice conducted a National Crime Victimization Survey and concluded that over 290,000 people are victims of rape and sexual assault each year. That actually comes out to 1 victim within every 2 minute time frame.

When Lady Gaga took the stage at the Oscars, her performance brought tears to everyone’s eyes. She has a great voice and it’s a powerful one. More performances like this might bring more victims forward. No longer ashamed. No longer paralyzed by that awful moment. But, ready to step forward and do something about it.

‘Hotel California’ Like You’ve Never Heard It Before! You’ll Want To Listen To This

February 27, 2016 in Commentary, Entertainment, Music, Review

Have you ever imagined if “Hotel California” can be played with one guitar. I’m not talking about just hitting the main riff and going with it. I mean actually sounding like something special, but only one guitar.

If you’ve ever watched Eagles playing live, you watched blazing guitars all over the stage rocking out the classic. Even when they remade the song and had only guitars, there was still about eight of them up there finding a way to hit every note. But, they wrote the song and performed it for years. Of course, they had it down.

Gabriella Quevado is an awesome guitarist who is going to rock the “Hotel California” hit with just one guitar. She uses just five fingers on one hand and five fingers on the other. I know I’ve now said that several different ways. But, I want to make it very clear. She is phenomenal!

If You Have An Annoying Stalker, This Adele ‘Hello’ Spoof Is The Balm

February 5, 2016 in Celebrities, Comedy, Commentary, Entertainment, Music, Review

The balm that heals all that ails you. Stalkers have gone new level. Now, they don’t even have to get out of bed. They can stalk from drones with cameras and watch the footage.

Remember the day when stalkers had to actually follow you? They had to hide in bushes and write anonymous notes. They had to buy binoculars and track your every move.

Technology has given them so many more tools to do their work. With GPS and a drone, they can sit on their couch and watch everything you do from the comfort of their own home. Gone are the days of them getting caught in the rain.

adele hello

This is a hilarious video that shows how easy it is now for stalkers to be annoying. Taking the Adele “Hello” song lyrics, they’ve added a whole different meaning Adele never could have imagined.

Steve Carell And Rashida Jones Hit A Home Run With ‘Angie Tribeca’

January 18, 2016 in Celebrities, Comedy, Commentary, Entertainment, Review, Television

I know Nancy Carell has something to do with the show. Like she might be a producer or something right along with her husband Steve. But, mentioning her name in the title would have made it too long. So…

Angie Tribeca is hilarious comedy reminiscent of Leslie Nielsen in Police Squad!, or even Leslie Nielsen in Naked Gun. Quite possibly the humor of Leslie Nielsen in Airplane!

It’s the kind of fast paced humor with jokes coming out of nowhere. The thousand jokes per minute type of comedy that makes viewers laugh the whole time and miss jokes while they’re cackling like a kangaroo in a boxing match.

In the pilot episode, there is a running scene where the guy they are chasing is jogging. Detective Geils is sprinting around corners and flipping over obstacles like a parkour pro. Tribeca has to staple a paper suit together to get in the race and ends up getting the guy. That’s the kind of humor you can expect and that barely scratches the surface.

The best joke though is that they are in Season 2, or so they would have you think. But if you follow television, you might be thinking, “When did Season 1 run?”

The Pilot appears to be scheduled to run on January 25, 2016. That’s right! Do the math and you realize that Season 1 was introduced in the Binge Marathon that started January 17, 2016. Your mind is not playing tricks on you. TBS is!

With a 25 hour marathon scheduled and the entire season ending just a little over 4 hours into it, you’ll have plenty of chances until 10 pm on the 18th to catch all of the episodes of Season 1. This has to be the most unique idea in television history. Is Season 2 for real? Has it been made yet? Or is this just a really interesting gimmick to get comedy enthusiasts and Rashida Jones fans like me interested in a show to see if there will even be a Season 2.

Stay tuned for my first installment of Steve Carell And Rashida Jones Hit A Home Run With ‘Angie Tribeca’. It should be a good article if you like reading that kind of stuff.

Miss Filly won. But, her routine was hard and set to rock. She has a tone body with muscles on top of muscles. When she wrapped her legs around the pole, you thought she was going to break it.

But, along comes Maddie Sparkle. She was sexy and sensual. When she climbed on the pole, it was like she was getting ready to make love to it. Her moves were smooth as she spun around the pole, up and down and then off to the other one to give it a workout.

Why The Drama Has To Stir For Lady Gaga From One Haphazard Look Of Leonardo DiCaprio

January 12, 2016 in Celebrities, Commentary, Entertainment, Events, Movies, Music, News, Review, Television

This is how the news makes a stink out of nothing. Did Leonardo DiCaprio have a strange look on his face as Lady Gaga went up to get her award at the Golden Globes? Yes. But, what did it mean?

The fact of the matter is that Lady Gaga had bumped his arm. Not her fault. Not his fault for not expecting it. But, the news will churn it like he cast “Shade” on her.

You know what? It was such a great evening for Lady Gaga, it would have to be dragged down by the media who builds its business by finding the drama in every story. She looked great! I loved how sincere she was when she accepted her award. And I love her period.

As far as Leonardo DiCaprio is concerned, I’m a fan. He has grown into one of the best actors in Hollywood and he should have received many awards by now. The fact that he has never received an Oscar is a crazy calculation of odds that won’t always be true. He’s due! If not for all the other work that he has done, The Revenant will get him there. No doubt!

So, what entertains you?

What Was Kirk Cousins Thinking Before The Half Against The Eagles?

December 28, 2015 in Celebrities, Commentary, Entertainment, News, Review, Sports

You can learn a lot from Kirk Cousins in his game against the Eagles week 16. There is one specific moment to highlight and it happened just before the half. The Redkins were up 16 to 10 and they had an impressive drive going. With 6 seconds left on the clock and the clock ticking, Cousins had to do something.

Lesson one, you have to keep your head. He could have spiked the ball and stopped the clock. That would have given him time to figure out how to wrap up the drive with a score. But, that’s not what he did.

Lesson two, making a mistake is not the end of the world. The Redskins went on to beat the Eagles despite Cousins lapse of judgment. That’s exactly what he did too! He had a lapse of judgment.

Being up and going in at the half ahead is not a bad situation. But, could the situation have been better? It could have. For some reason though, Kirk Cousins had an entirely different idea…
