leave a comment »

On Tuesday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert had a field day reading hilarious tweets by journalist Jared Yates Sexton who voiced his severe disappointment about Donald Trump Jr.’s damning mails regarding the Trump-Russia meeting:

I…worked on this story for a year…and…he just…he tweeted it out.


Here is a collection of Sexton’s tweets after Trump Jr.’s providing ’smoking gun‘ evidence against himself:

Buffy (and Xander) at their best: „Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered“

leave a comment »

After posting my 20th anniversary tribute to „Buffy the Vampire Slayer“, I just encountered my favorite episode in the first two seasons (so far): „Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered“ – which starts with this cute dialog (in a graveyard):

Xander: Well, this is new territory for me. I mean, my valentines are usually met with heartfelt restraining orders.
Buffy: She’ll love it.
Xander: I wish dating was like slaying, you know? Simple, direct, stake to the heart, no muss, no fuss.
[Vampire shoots out of grave, attacks Xander, gets slayed by Buffy.]
Buffy: Sorry to say, Xand. Slaying is a tad more perilous than dating.
Xander: Well, you’re obviously not dating Cordelia.

Wikipedia’s synopsis:

In this episode, Cordelia breaks up with Xander after her friends mock her. Xander retaliates by attempting a love spell to „put her through the same hell“, and he gets a little more than he had bargained for.

Buffy goes to Bollywood: „So, how does the water buffalo fit in again?“

with one comment

„Buffy the Vampire Slayer“ turned 20 this March – and, revisiting the first two seasons, I think it has aged quite nicely.

I just ran across a funny exchange in the „Reptile Boy“ episode (S02E05), featuring Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Willow (Alyson Hannigan) and Xander (Nicholas Brendon) watching a Bollywood song & dance scene together:

Xander: Is she dying?
Buffy: I think she’s singing.
Xander: To a telephone, in Hindi. Now, that’s entertainment. – Why is she singing?
Willow: She’s sad because her lover gave her 12 gold coins. But then the wizard cut open a bag of salt and now the dancing minions have nowhere to put their big maple fish thing.
Xander: Uh-huh. – Why is she singing?
Buffy: Her lover? I thought that was her chiropractor.
Willow: Because of that thing he did with her feet? – No, that was personal.
Xander: And we thought just because we didn’t have any money or any place to go, this’d be a lacklustre evening.
Willow: I know, we could go to the Bronze, sneak in our own tea bags and ask for hot water.
Xander: Hop off the outlaw train before you land us in jail.
Buffy: I, for one, am giddy and up. There’s a kinda hush all over Sunnydale. No demons or vampires to slay. I’m here with my friends. – So, how does the water buffalo fit in again?

Video-Download-Tipp: Rolling Stones auf Kuba („Havana Moon“)

Wie ich in meinem Beitrag über den 3sat-„Pop around the clock“-Tag am 31.12.2016 schrieb, war ich am meisten auf „Havana Moon“ gespannt, den geschichtsträchtigen Auftritt der Rolling Stones auf Kuba. Ich habe ihn gestern gesehen und kann mich den begeisterten Kritikerstimmen anschließen: eine tolle, energiegeladene Show mit gut aufgelegten Musikern, die auch untereinander großen Spaß hatten, und einem unglaublich ekstatischen Publikum. Selbst einer meiner meistgehassten Stones-Songs („I Can’t Get No Satisfaction“) war durch den fetten, vorantreibenden Beat von Charlie Watts erträglich.

Das Video ist noch bis zum 14. Januar 2017 in der 3sat-Mediathek abrufbar. Im o. g. Blog-Beitrag erkläre ich, wie man es mit der kostenlosen MediathekView-Software herunterladen kann.

„Pop around the clock 2016“ bei 3sat: Alte weiße Herren machen Musik – dennoch ein paar Download-Tipps

with 3 comments

Pop around the clock (3sat-Screenshot)

Pop around the clock (3sat-Screenshot)

Im vergangenen Jahr war ich gnädig und sprach von einem „Festtag für Freunde der Live-Musik“, denn damals gab es wenigstens noch „Ausrutscher“ wie Katy Perry, Miley Cirus, Die Fantastischen Vier, One Direction und Revolverheld. Gegenüber dem, was ab morgen (am Samstag/Sonntag, 31.12.2016/1.1.2017) bei „Pop around the clock“ auf 3sat läuft, war aber selbst die Programmgestaltung des Springsteen-Fans Peter Rüchel beim WDR-Rockpalast vergleichsweise progressiv. Der hatte damals immerhin auch farbigere bis buntere Bands wie George Clinton und Parliament/Funkadelic oder Ian Dury & the Blockheads dabei.

3sat hingegen versteht unter „Pop“ 2016 primär alte weiße Herren – und holt dafür selbst Journey und Foreigner aus der Mottenkiste.

Der jüngste Viral-Hit: die heißen Herdboys von BSH Hausgeräte!

Fundstück bei Facebook:

„Consumer Centricity“ mit „Storage Management“ im „Home Connect“, mit „Remote Diagnostic“ „geflasht“. Aber entirely ohne Women. Die haben ja bei so was in der Küche nichts verloren.

Die Nutzerkommentare sind klasse:

So unscripted. Also im real life. Really authentisch.
