Jimmy Kimmel Demolishes ABC’s Upfronts - ArtsBeat Blog -
"To the ABC advertisers, Mr. Kimmel said, “Every year we lie to you and every year you come back for more. You don’t need an upfront. You need therapy. We completely lie to you, and then you pass those lies onto your clients.”" - michael sean wright from Bookmarklet
Line of the show: “The important thing to remember is: who cares, it’s not your money.” - Mark "Rizzn" Hopkins
i know that he has a dog gets a few bites clause which means he can say anything on his show... but wow this is bold. - michael sean wright
I think he's trying to grab a bit of that Colbert style honesty magic. Remember that press dinner speech Colbert gave a few years back? - Mark "Rizzn" Hopkins
i'd give anything to see video of this! love the line - 90% of these shows are going to be canceled! - michael sean wright
I hope he goes after Leno's seat. - Mona Nomura
Leno is locked for at least a decade with that nightly show - yipes that could tank nbc. Mona maybe on to something here- Jimmy's trying to get fired so he could go to nbc, though he swiped at them as well. wonder if he wants cbs? - michael sean wright
Nothing like biting the hand that feeds ya! - Don Whittaker
ha - chewing it right off! - michael sean wright
If TV was in the situation the newspapers are right now (and not off in the future, but in the same boat right now), I'd say he's gunning to go independent. It's either burnout or him trying to just push the edge. - Mark "Rizzn" Hopkins
I watched his interview on Shatner's Raw Nerve (great show, by the way), and he talked about how he routinely spends 15 hours a day on the show, so burnout is a distinct possibility. - Mark "Rizzn" Hopkins
tv is speeding towards a hurt in general. what i want to know is if he had this planned or did an abc exec. say something to him right before the 'upfront' and set Kimmel off? do you have a link to the raw nerve show Mark? - michael sean wright
(preview, not full ep, of Jimmy and Shatner: - Mark "Rizzn" Hopkins
I'd say that he was probably set off, though not by something necessarily there at the upfronts, but likely something in general. He has a pretty cavalier attitude about his employers, and big passion for doing what he does. Sort of an "artist" mentality, if that makes sense. - Mark "Rizzn" Hopkins
this goes beyond the ribbing he's known for - he went after their wallets. thanks for the shatner link btw. - michael sean wright
no prob. If you have the biography channel, set your DVR for it. I've watched most of them front to back. - Mark "Rizzn" Hopkins
As much as I like Conan, I have a feeling he's going to tank. And Kimmel'll be RIGHT there to try and swoop - he *might* be planting seeds, who knows. - Mona Nomura
would think though that nbc is committed to Conan for a long time. took him a few years to catch on in late night prob. going to the case with new time as well. cbs sticking with letterman and world wide pant's late late show w/ craig ferguson. would kimmell go to a pay chan. or a comedy central? do you remember when letterman was ticked at nbc? he really went after them, night after... more... - michael sean wright
...i know kimmel is supposedly a comedian, but i'm sure a lot of TV and advertising brass didn't particularly dig this bit. I give him props for running with it. I love how the article starts: "If Jimmy Kimmel still has a job at ABC on Wednesday, he is either a very lucky or very deft comedian, or he has great blackmail photos of the network executives..." .LOLz*2 - .LAG liked that

Did any science fiction writer actually manage to predict the ubiquity of smartphones?
...writer(s) behind "Star Trek"? - .LAG liked that
Yeah, I guess the communicators/comm badges and tricorders could be considered precursors, but even Roddenberry et al never realized we'd all have all-in-one-devices that let you communicate with people all over the planet and let you access entire databases from an independent self-contained handheld device. - Victor Ganata
I do wonder how much the TOS communicators influenced the design of clamshell phones, though :D - Victor Ganata
It seems like TNG did anticipate tablets. - Victor Ganata
...if you think about the imagined technology behind the term "beam me up, Scotty" you arguably have the ultimate smartphone... GPS, P2P communication, data streaming, DNA profiling, etc. I don't think Roddenberry came up with all of this himself... he did have a distinguished combat career in the US Air Force, but that's probably just coincidental, military technology never makes it to the public...but I could be wrong. - .LAG liked that
I dunno, I think if a defense contractor had invented a Heisenberg compensator, that would already be everywhere (and the laws of physics would drastically changed.) If you think about it, the spread spectrum tech that allows cell phones to work was originally a military innovation. (As was the Internet, now that I think about it.) So commercially useful tech makes it out eventually. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
In the Otherworld series, there were "handsets" that were used by the characters, that performed multiple functions, but it didn't seem they were ubiquitous. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I think 3-5" screens were not sci-fi-y enough. The few comparable things I can think of tend to be audio-only talking wearable computers, or have HUDs, or just magic holographic projection. And older sci-fi had ubiquitous networked computers in the everyday infrastructure (built into buildings and cars) but few had handheld personal computers... - Andrew C (✔)
But hmm, a lot of the sci fi I've read came from before the PC era even started, and then there's a giant gap. - Andrew C (✔)

Study Shows White People Believe They Experience More Racism Than Black People -
Study Shows White People Believe They Experience More Racism Than Black People
"Researchers from Harvard and Tufts University have conducted a surprising study which shows that white people think that much needed racial progress has been made since the 1950s — but at their expense. The study in question polled several hundred people, both black and white, about the pace of progress since the 1950s. Both racial groups indicated that there has been some definite change in the racial climate since then. But the surprising piece of the puzzle is that white people now believe that the decrease in anti-black racism has led to the rise of anti-white racism. In other words, white people believe that equality has been reached but that this has subjected them to experience more racism than black folk." - Anti-Racism Media from Bookmarklet

I think it was Andrew who retweeted a description of libertarianism, something like: "fuck history and context." I think that's a good description of the vantage point of those complaining about WASP discrimination. - Eivind
So, WASPs should just accept discrimination? It's just revenge at that point, and collective revenge at that! No thanks. - Todd
Yes, I think it's time WASPs accept their new role as the helots of the world. - Eivind

I am really getting tired of folks assuming that since I am a FTM, that I know absolutely nothing about babies or child care. I've stopped responding to the comments. I just wanna scream: I come from a huge family, there were *always* babies, I have six nieces and nephews, who do you think watches them when their parents are out or need a break?
My BFF has five kids, you're right I've never been around any of them. Ugh. So frustrated, so tired, so pregnant. - Mary Carmen

I had the same experience being a FTD, MC. I had aunts who married young and had kids early. We were very close and because I was a part their lives, I baby sat for them. I knew a few tricks that Wife was not aware of when Waif was born. As my grandfather used to say: "Don't try to judge my bushel by your thimble full." - MoTO Boychick Devil

As someone who has a LOT of younger cousins and babysat a lot before having my own, the one new thing I learned from watching my friend's 4-month old for a few days was that babies cry when they're tired. News to me! Of course, by the time mine came along there wasn't too much I didn't know about except maybe breast feeding (which was its own hell). Sometimes you just have to nod and roll your eyes until you DO need some advice. I have every confidence in you! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!

I think the most insulting FTM experience I had was when my mother came up from FL for a visit, when my daughter was 4 months old. I got the heads up from my brother, that the purpose for her visit was to check up on me and make sure I was taking care of the baby properly (but I wasn't to let on that I knew this). - April Russo

Iman Shumpert bids farewell to the NBA's finest flattop | The Point Forward -
"Some sad news in the lead-up to the NBA season: Knicks guard Iman Shumpert -- previous owner the NBA's most ambitiously skyscraping flattop -- has decided to move in a new, more restrained stylistic direction with his hair. Knicks web manager Jonah Ballow posted the above photo to Instagram, showing a shaved-down Shumpert staring blankly into the out-of-frame abyss. He is still a player of purpose, a perimeter defender of unquestionable mettle. But this marks a crisis of identity for a player who drew power from his flattop, not to mention a very public loss in the sacrifice of high hair art." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
