Seriously? OMG! WTF?

Chris Cuomo fired from CNN
December 4th, 2021 under The Cuomo Brothers. [ Comments: none ]

2021 started off as Andrew and Chris Cuomo’s year, and it is ending with both of them being out of a job.

Andrew Cuomo resigned earlier this year after allegations of sexual advances and harassment towards women he worked with while governor of New York. There were several women who made this claim, and his brother used his influence to allegedly look up on dirt on them and act as his brother’s aide.

As soon as CNN learned about the latter, they did an investigation on him. Today, they made a decision about his future with the network.

“Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother’s defense. We retained a respected law firm to conduct the review, and have terminated him, effective immediately.

“While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light. Despite the termination, we will investigate as appropriate.”

While Chris Cuomo said, “This is not how I want my time at CNN to end but I have already told you why and how I helped my brother. So let me now say as disappointing as this is, I could not be more proud of the team at Cuomo Prime Time and the work we did as CNN’s #1 show in the most competitive time slot. I owe them all and will miss that group of special people who did really important work.”

As someone who worked in hard news, I will admit we will use our jobs sometimes to get information about personal matters, like if a friend or family member might have been injured in an accident before it is released to the public. However, we know the line, and Cuomo crossed it.

Our loyalty belongs to our jobs and journalism before everyone else, including our family members. Or at least it should.

And to the people, who work at other news outlets, don’t get overly excited about this news. It could easily happen at your place of employment too. If it hasn’t already. Remember how happy you were to see male anchors get fired at Fox News, then CBS, then NBC, and so on. No place is safe from people abusing their power. And you know it.

Dave Grohl is a Big Shot
December 3rd, 2021 under Billy Joel, Foo Fighters. [ Comments: none ]

It is the sixth night of Chanukah, so that means it is time for Dave Grohl and Greg Kurstin to release their take on another song by a Jewish artist. Tonight, they gave us something from The Piano Man.

Grohl wrote, “While he claims a secular Long Island upbringing (and has songs full of Catholic and Italian imagery), Billy Joel remains one of the great Jews of musical scripture—here’s his ultimate ode to a true Macher: ‘Big Shot!'”

After watching this performance, I hope that the Foo Fighters add kazoos to their act!

Zendaya latest cause is for actors who wear superhero suits
December 3rd, 2021 under Graham Norton, Superman/Spider-Man, Zendaya. [ Comments: none ]

Zendaya is starring in the latest Spider-man movie, and she has a real concern for Tom Holland and other actors who wear full-body suits to play a superhero. The costumes are not easy to get on and off. So they have to do everything in them.

Because of that, she told Grahan Norton on his show today that she is worried about what happens if her boyfriend has to throw up in it while dressed as Spider-man. She believes there needs to be an easier way to get out of it.

If I were her, I would be more worried about the rush to go from the other end. I know; they are both equally awful. So, now that she mentions it, I think we need to take a stand for actors who cannot easily get out of their costumes when nature calls.

They also need to have a better way to eat. I mean, can you imagine having a straw being stuck down your eyehole so that you can eat and/or drink.

We know that true actors suffer for their art, but this seems to be unnecessary. I mean, how hard is it to add a zip? Let’s save the superheroes and protest for their right for zippers!

Let’s organize marches on National Zipper Day, April 29th, to let the studios know that actors should be able to get out of suits quickly. They deserve the same rights as you and me when it comes time to pee.

Devo’s Jerry Casale whips it with shaving
December 3rd, 2021 under 80s, Awesome Videos. [ Comments: none ]

Back on 1980, Jerry Casalawee had a huge hit with Devo called Whip It. The song has had such an influence over him that he uses whipped cream whenever he can.

One of the things he uses it for is to shave his face. He says it works really well. And the best part is you can get your lover to lick your face when you are done. I will lick whipped cream off almost anything, so I am willing to try this.

While that is what I would do with it, Casale wants to know what you Whip It with. So let him know on TikTok at @Devo, and he might try it out.
