Terry Tsai: SF drone footage during the #BayAreaFires on 9/9/20, set to Blade Runner 2049 music.

Now we’re getting Red Sky Crossovers in real life, too? Perfect.

8:46

Dave Chappelle’s new special, “8:46”, is excellent. You should watch it, which works out ‘cause it’s right up there.

Katie Porter’s Whiteboard

When you woke up this morning and put on your bland suit in preparation for your hearing, I bet you looked yourself in the mirror and thought: Today’s the day. Katie Porter’s not going to get me.

Well, I’m Representative Katie Porter’s whiteboard, and I’ve got a message scrawled upon my glistening façade: We’re about to kick your ass.

The exchange between Rep. Katie Porter of California and an official from the CDC during a hearing yesterday was awesome. This monologue from McSweeney’s Internet Tendency is an equally-awesome companion piece.

If you haven’t seen Rep. Porter mopping the floor with the officials from the CDC yet, you should 100% watch the video below before you read the piece on McSweeney’s. It’s worth your time, I promise.

Lords of the Dance

I might not have liked Joker, and I didn’t like Spider-Man 3 (just like any right-minded person), but I love this nonsense.

I love it so much.

Last Week Tonight: SLAPP Suits

After spending two years engaged in a legal battle with a coal executive who was less-than-enthused with a giant squirrel telling him to “eat shit”, John Oliver finally shares the details of what happened, explains SLAPP lawsuits, and ends the segment in a way that ensured that I’d have to post it.

I had no choice, people.

Microsoft the Musical

The bit in the beginning where they consider Bill Gates less of a person and more of an idea is kinda weird, but the part where they make fun of Windows Phone really makes up for it.

Gourmet Pop Rocks

This is some top-notch “I do not want to do this content but I will do this content because it is my job” content.

Also I learned more about Pop Rocks than I ever thought possible, so that’s a pretty solid bonus.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Trailer

Honestly the only reason I’m not demanding it be December right now is because that would mean I’m skipping Avengers: Endgame, but that’s it.

Ya Damn Right

In 11th grade, we had to make a video based on a poem for my A.P. English class. At the request of my teacher, I did two — the one she wanted was a overly-serious (and totally misunderstanding of the point of the poem) video for Robert Frost’s “The Road Less Traveled”, and the one I wanted to do was a reading of the Shaft theme.

This is all to say that I can’t wait for this movie, and I will 100% be there several times opening weekend.
