Ben’s freakin out ALL MONTH about spider eyes which he describes as “loose remnants of damned human souls” among other things that scare him, and folks again mass shootin again. My birthday is Monday, and I wanna laugh. I’ll laugh at the young me trying sleeping with a durag on to “get them waves on lock”. Then one day, I woke up with the headache those usually come with, and realized “Wait a minute.. I’m African.. My hair’s suPPOSED to be nappy AF. Skip All that!” It’s been nap city every since, on this side! Ain’t no lookin back, baby! Well maybe just this once…
Join me, and take a trip with us down memory lane on this week’s Top 10 Moments In Durag History: Continue reading Flashback Friday: Top 10 Durag Moments Of All Time… And A Lie
“Everyone needs a champ” is the title of this campaign. It’s beautiful, inspiring, and a great way for your sports heroes to show some love back to the 3-5 lucky few of you American Family Insurance picked. Maybe I’m just being sinister on this Tuesday, but all I saw was “nice concentration on that dance routine, AMANDA – hope you don’t blow it when your heroes bang on the window of your dance studio! OOPS“. Or maybe, “skate, skate, skate, KRYSTAL – now don’t freak out and crash into your teammates when J.J. Giant trolls you then chases RUSTY down for 26 miles straight”
It’s either that or whatever the intended message was. Check the short clip out for yourself:
I’ll admit, I haven’t really checked out this James Corden fellow. I’m on a strict one-Britishlate-night-host a year-diet, and John Oliver’s once a week is enough for America to take… for now. That said, we’ll take his “carpool karaoke” series over Fallon’s “lip syncing” (seriously HOW is that entertainment!) ANY day. Especially when it’s with the national treasure, and apparent goofball, Stevie Wonder. Rarely do segments get funnier and funnier for a whole 10 minutes, no WONDER this was a joy to watch for these 4 reasons:
1. Stevie wants to drive. WTF, STEVIE! You don’t see a problem with that?
2. Stevie “watches” James Corden all the time with his wife. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR, STEVIE! We just can’t see that happenin how you say it does 😉 .
3. Stevie is blind to the bs. Stevie, you’re trollin us hard, and it’s weird coz we don’t know when it’s appropriate to laugh at your blind jokes. Can we just always laugh WITCHU, Stevie? The only sound better than your laughter is your vocals, and also your ridiculous British accent. (no disrespect to that harmonica)
4. Stevie WILL NOT hear any of your harmonica. On this one, we’re witchu, Stevie. WHO do you THINK you are? Don’t touch that!
Stevie – JUST GO FOR IT, MAN! Whatever, you want! We’ll sing along and laugh away the superstition.
WHAT is that eternal garment Stevie has worn for as long as I can remember. It’s not a robe. It’s not a kimono. It’s not a Dashiki. It’s not an over-sized shirt. WHAT IS IT!
You’ve thought it, posted it and regretted it. Sometimes, you may have been a
bit bigoted jackhole, sometimes you were somewhere in between Trevor Noah, Jerry Seinfeld, and Curtis Jackson. Whatever the case is, its clear in 2015 – more than ever – that somewhere, somehow even Gandhi’s dieting, and Mother Teresa’s prude self would be crossing the line for some poor sap who is a offense-detector. Here’s a hilarious take on how to avoid an AIDS fire, ebola hurricane, or meningitis tsunami or any biting comeback in such an event:
