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 »

Screenshot „Buffy the Vampire Slayer“ S02E16

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.

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.

Post-binge watching: My favorite quotes from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s season 2 (#KimmySchmidt)

with one comment

Netflix sitcom "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"Season 2 of „Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt“, the hilarious sitcom created by Tina Fey and her „30 Rock“ show runner Robert Carlock, is at least as strong as its premiere season. I especially enjoyed the addition of Tina Fey’s role as Andrea Bayden, „an alcoholic therapist who is separated by work Andrea at day and drunk Andrea at night“ (Wikipedia). On RottenTomatoes.com, the series still has the same approval rate by critics as in season 1: 95 %. In short: „Not letting up in season two, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is still odd in the best of ways, wonderfully building on its unique comedy stylings and brilliantly funny cast.“

Here is a selection of my favorite quotes:

Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper): I did it for your own good, Xan. Someday you’ll thank me.
Xanthippe Voorhees: Yeah, when pigs fly. – Oh, my God. I sound so lame now! And stupid.
Kimmy: Pigs fly all the time, Xan, or did you think prize pigs walk to international pig competitions?

Kimmy Schmidt: What do I call you now? Mrs. Voorhers?
Jacqueline White (Jane Krakowski): Ms. White. That’s my Sioux family name. It was given to us in the 1920s by a sarcastic census taker.

Jacqueline White: Kimmy, I need your help.
Kimmy Schmidt: Help? That’s what we elves are born to do.
Jacqueline: Oh, you are dressed like an elf. I just assumed it was the trucker pills.

Jacqueline White: Oh, Kimmy, I also need you to call my hotel. My suite is so big, I keep getting lost. Have them send up a guide monkey.

Deirdre Robespierre (Anna Camp, to Jacqueline): I have a 150 IQ, but I spent all morning picking out dog stationery. Maybe I’m just tormenting you just to feel alive, but also there is a chance this is real empathy.

ARD-Cloud-Report „Zugriff!“: „Heiße Luft“, „gebührenfinanzierte Panikmache“, „plump und unsachlich“

"Exclusiv im Ersten: Zugriff! Wenn das Netz zum Gegner wird" in der Mediathek

„Zugriff! Wenn das Netz zum Gegner wird“ in der Mediathek

Gestern gab es noch Vorschusslorbeeren für die ARD-Sendung „Zugriff! Wenn das Netz zum Gegner wird“ (unter anderem in der Süddeutschen: „Wehrlos in der Wolke“), heute hagelt es Kritik – wegen einer verschenkten Chance. Peter Onnekens Selbstversuch in Sachen Identitätsdiebstahl (durch Koautorin Diana Löbl) beschränkte sich nämlich auf billige Effekthascherei und ließ wichtige Infos aus.
