Monday Open Thread: A New Network to Watch

It's a jail day for me, open thread for you.

All topics welcome, but speaking of TV: Has anyone been watching the Viceland shows? Vice launched its own channel at the end of February and has about 8 shows. From what I've read (no time for links right now) the network is geared towards millenials and the first month ratings via cable were not good. (There are many ways to watch.) This New York Times article sums

I actually liked F*ck That's Delicious, with rapper Action Bronson. It's part of their "Munchies" series. I never heard of him before. Physically, he resembles one of the guys in Duck Dynasty. But he's from Queens, NY, NY, , the son of an Albanian Muslim and an American Jewish mother, so any similarity ends there.

Anyway, Action used to be a chef before he broke his leg and became a rapper. The New York Times has this pretty extensive write-up on Action and Viceland. [More...]

Saturday Open Thread: Belated April Fools' Edition

The Aspen Daily News has a funny article about Trump getting the naming rights to Sardy Field (Aspen's airport) and his plans to turn it into an international hub. It's an April Fool's joke.

There's even a photo of the new airport, topped with a Donald-style mane of hair. There's more about his plans to outlaw hiking, take on environmentalists and erect a statue of himself in Carbondale.

Trump is also seeking naming opportunities elsewhere in the Roaring Fork Valley. He has already approached Carbondale about placing a statue depicting himself as a Roman god in the town’s roundabout, and Glenwood Springs concerning the design of the Grand Avenue Bridge, which would be shaped like his p*nis.

Tuesday Open Thread

We all know Susan Sarandon is familiar with driving off a cliff. That's what she's advocating in her latest interview. The days of Thelma and Louise are long gone.

Skip her, and watch the CBS primetime time special tonight of James Corden and the Late Late Show's Primetime Karaoke.

Here's a screengrab of JLo from tonight's show. [More...]

Easter Sunday Open Thread

Happy Easter, to everyone celebrating today.

Does anyone have a Surface Book? Is it worth more than $2k? Does the 13.3 inch screen seem bigger because it has such a thin bezel (or for whatever reason) or is it wysiwyg?

There are so few computer stores around here (everything is online other than a small kiosk in two local malls)that you can't even test them out before you buy -- keyboard feel, screen size and weight matter a lot to many besides me, I'd bet.

For those of you online, here's an open thread, all topics welcome.

I'm way behind on news. I only heard about Brussels coming back from the jail. It's a really busy work week.

Thursday Open Thread

I've got motions due, so no blogging for a day or so.

Has anyone noticed that Donald Trump's ex-wife Marla Maples will be on DWTS starting next week? She supports Donald. Isn't that just like more free publicity for him? [More...]

Monday Night Open Thread

Plenty of politics to talk about. Tomorrow John Kasich and Marco Rubio will find out how voters in their home state feel about them -- going home might not be so sweet, especially for Rubio. I think Kasich will take Ohio, he's got a slight edge over Trump in the latest polls.

In other news: A Palestinian-American fighting for ISIS surrendered to the Kurds/Iraqis today. Russia announced it was pulling most of its military forces from Syria.[More...]

Saturday Open Thread: Non-Politics

If you'd rather watch happy stuff than the politics race, check out James Corden (host of the Late Late Show) and One Direction doing carpool karaoke. I've watched it six or seven times and still laugh. Also fun to watch: James and One Direction playing a game of Tattoo Roulette and Corden's "Take a Break" segments where he fills in for others at work. Two really funny ones are where he tries to be a real estate agent and sell a house to rapper Tyga and get the listing for a house owned by LA Clippers player J.J. Reddick. In the second one, I think the funniest part is when he takes a shower. [More...]

Friday Open Thread: Cuba and Sweethearts

Marco Rubio bashed Cuba hard during last night's Republican debate. I don't know that anyone outside of Miami's conservative Cuban-American community agree with him. He also threatened that Guantanamo will be kept open and lots of people will be tried there.

Marco Rubio is not "America's Sweetheart." Neither is Ted Cruz, who always seem to wear too much eye makeup during debates. He reminds me a bit of Pee Wee Herman.

Much more fun to watch than Republicans, is Elle King. The video above of "America's Sweetheart" is from her appearance a few days ago on the Late Late Show with James Corden. "Kick out the jams, kick up the soul, Pour another glass of that rock and roll." [More....]
