Thought I’d do a roundup of some of the more memorable topics in the headlines this week.
The Thud Heard ‘Round the World
What can I say… Lenny. We all know Lenny a bit better this week. Make that a lot better.
I saw Lenny Kravitz perform in Vegas years back and it was very memorable. Not for the reason that his performance in Sweden was memorable but memorable nonetheless.
There was the stranger standing next to me in the crowd who brushed my jawline with his hand while gazing at me and told me how beautiful I was. I must admit, I was looking pretty rock and roll that night but it was a bit awkward. Especially because his girlfriend was standing next to him smiling at me too. For some reason this wasn’t the first time I picked up on that “let’s party” vibe from a couple. I looked around to see if my then-husband saw what just happened but he was busy talking to the two flight attendants behind us (yeah….#signs).
Also memorable, during intermission I almost threw down with a drunk gorilla in a shiny shirt that had a man-crush on Lenny. I won’t elaborate. What can I say? Lenny can make people act… out of character. *sigh*
I found the reporting of the incident comical…especially the Gawker headline, “Lenny Kravitz Shredded so Hard his D**ck Fell Out on Stage.”
You know if it was any other rock star*, it would say something like…. “Adam Levine’s Pecker Peeped Out of his Pants.”
*I use that term loosely in reference to AL
Things that Make You Go… Huh?
Oh Donald…..you scamp! Thanks for at least making the Republican duck-duck-goose game interesting. You are the gift that keeps on giving.
I did watch part of the debate out of curiosity and hope of witnessing a spectacular train wreck. Was a bit disappointed but it did induce quite a few moments of, “Huh?”
I get sidetracked by the mysterious swirl of strands on his head. This comes to mind:
I am so with Elaine on this one. Melania, any thoughts?
Democrats, learn a lesson about tolerance from the Republicans in this one area:
Don’t discriminate against a politician because of his hair!
The Other Thud Heard ‘Round the World
The debate was really just filler and time-killing. I was eagerly and grudgingly waiting for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart finale. The other thud would be a collective of sunken hearts as Jon Stewart signed off.
I loved the show because it was blisteringly funny and smartly written. The show wore it’s heart on it’s sleeve as did Stewart. It was really a long-running love letter to America and what it is supposed to stand for. Reminders are good every now and then. I adore the fact that Jon Stewart remains humble in the knowledge that we really do possess these amazing freedoms in the United States. These freedoms that allow people to question authority, poke fun at policy and possibly make you think about something in a different light.
Remember your way isn’t always the only way to be or act. When humans become inflexible in their thinking and action they may end up in a state where things like this happen.
Thank you Jon Stewart.
