Crazy Cats Stealing Dog Beds

This is my fave compilation on this silly subject. Some of these poor dogs will try to fling their beds, some bark hysterically & some get bummed out & give up. A few at the end just snuggle up with their feline. Now cats love cozying up in small spaces so it’s safe to assume that when a cat decides to sleep in the larger dog bed, it’s done purely to screw with the dog. And I say this as a cat lover–but cats can also be furry little jerks sometimes. Oh well…

Photography | bringing out the warm humanity of humans

Share

Bringing out and capturing the natural warmth and personality of people is often the essence of a successful photograph to me. It’s something I strive to create whether it’s a formal portrait or an instant snatched at an event setting. Here are a ten of mine I think worked out pretty well.

Podcasts | Hang Up and Listen-Slate’s weekly sports discussion

Share

Hang Up and Listen is a weekly sports discussion from the online magazine Slate. It features Slate sports editor Josh Levin, writer Stefan Fatsis (author of A Few Seconds of Panic), and NPR sports reporter Mike Pesca.

Podcasts-Slate magazine's Hang Up And Listen excellent weekly sports discussion podcastHang Up and Listen isn’t a “scream and debate till the hosts are red in the face” PTI-style yap fest type of podcast. Anchored by Slate’s sports editor Josh Levin, writer Stefan Fatsis, and NPR’s Mike Pesca, these three are smart, thorough, and highly analytical. They can be pedantic at times-some of their segments are as dense as a dissertation—but it’s better to be critical and informative than beer-bellied, redundant, Bayless-like, and dependent on the adjectives “good” and “great.”

Instead of putting in a review by me (I listen every week) or a professional smarty-pants reviewer, I’ll just paste some insights from mere average humans for your edification. Then check it out for your own selves.

Video | Comedians In Cars-Jerry Seinfeld’s funny web series

Share

Jerry Seinfeld is back with “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”–an excellent and amusing web based series. Episodes follow a format of Seinfeld introducing a vintage car, picking up the guest comedian, and taking them out to have coffee. A simple and engaging concept.

Comedians-In-Cars-Getting-Coffee-Jerry-Seinfeld's-web-based-tv-comedy-series-Comedians-In-Cars-Getting-Coffee,-tLeave it to Jerry Seinfeld to create something fresh and funny about three things you don’t normally think of together. His Internet show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, is a well-deserved hit, and the second season features such luminaries as Sarah Silverman, David Letterman, and Don Rickles.

Each short episode is a lighthearted attempt to answer a serious question: what makes something funny?

The show is presented by Crackle.

Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee – Review So Far

by Michael Record

In the new season premiere, Seinfeld takes Sarah Silverman out for a ride in a Jaguar XKE convertible. Each comedian gets paired with a car that matches their persona. So Silverman gets a sleek and sexy Jaguar, while comedy legends Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner got a silver Rolls Royce for their episode last year. In an upcoming episode, Seinfeld and David Letterman cruise the streets of Connecticut in a Volvo station wagon suped-up with a new engine by the great Paul Newman.

So why is Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee so popular? I think it is because there is a difference between watching a stand-up comedy act and watching innately funny people be themselves. Sure, the former is a crafted experience designed to make you laugh your ass off, but the humour presented in a naturally witty conversation always has that extra something due to the spontaneity of it.

Movies | Flight – the script and intriguing tales about the production, director, writer, cast

Share

John Gatins was the screenwriter for Flight. The movie received two Oscar nominations including best original script, best actor for Denzel Washington, and it was directed byRobert Zemeckis.

Flight -movie--poster with-Denzel-Washington, tFlight tells the redemption story of “Whip” (Washington), a commercial airline pilot who pulls off a heroic feat of flying in a damaged plane, saving 98 lives on a flight carrying 106 people.

While the world begs to embrace him as a true American Hero, the everyman struggles with this label as he is forced to hold up to the scrutiny of an investigation that brings into question his behavior the night before the doomed flight.

Flight movie trailer

About The Film

On a mid-Autumn morning, SouthJet 227 departs Orlando, Florida for what should be a routine trip. Captain Whip Whitaker is at the helm of the Jackson-Ridgefield 88 Passenger Jet along with his young clean-cut co-pilot and first officer Ken Evans, who is Whip’s polar opposite in every way. The flight soon encounters heavier-than-anticipated turbulence as they fly into a massive storm. Not a problem for Whip who steers the plane into the clearing, albeit in an unconventional and eyebrow raising way, to the relief of the flight’s 96 passengers and six members of the flight crew.

Crazy Husky Joyfully Playing In Huge Pile Of Leaves

Since this Husky doesn’t have piles of snow to romp around in, he figures this huge pile of leaves is close enough. The Husky, Butch, gleefully buries himself in the pile & then gets into a romping frenzy of joy. This viral video is a perfect example of how dogs bring out our inner child & make us laugh. If you listen to Butch’s guardian laughing, you tell me if this isn’t great for stress relief. Just cut loose & have fun. Thanks for the laughs Butch!

The Funny Water Antics Of Best Friends–An Elephant & Dog

This video’s got a ton of fun & warmth to enjoy. Well much more than a ton since Bubbles, the elephant, is over 9,000 pounds. She & her best friend Bella, a Lab, are inseperable friends & love splashing around their river together. Bubbles & Bella were both abandoned by their families & have now formed their own wonderfully weird family with their human. Bella’s favorite thing to do is diving off Bubbles gigantic head. I also posted a GMA video about them.
