Together, the creative genius of James Corden and his writing staff wax poetic to condense dense Donald Trump’s 4 Year reign of terror down to a 3 Minute Video.

If, on this day, my compatriots and I wind up successfully empowering Joe Biden and Kamala Harris AND we flip the U.S. Senate back over to the Democrats, too, America will soon be heading for a true blue renaissance.

If so, will the drunk on power DT’s DTs soon follow?

Special message to all who’ve yet to cast your ballots. Unless serious health concerns are a factor, consider showing up at the polls, today, to fire Donald J. Trump’s ass; to tell him where he can shove his anti-American agenda.

If you do so, make damned sure you remain socially distanced (at least 6 feet apart), mask up, wear vinyl gloves, don’t touch your face and, as soon as you get home, scrub your face and hands. BTW, wearing glasses / shades can afford extra protection, too.

If you don’t own store bought PPE, I’ve linked us, below, to EZ to follow, DIY instructions to fashion your very own face covering / mask; no sewing skills needed.

Spicer has Returned to the White House? (Vid of the Day)

We can count on the CBS Network’s Late Late Show, hosted by James Corden, to keep us enlightened, entertained and encouraged while we wend our way through our troubled world during uncertain times.

This blurb, copied and pasted from Corden’s official YouTube site, will further set up the clip…

James checks in with Michael Spicer, special communicators advisor to President Donald Trump for his COVID-19 briefings. Despite Michael’s best efforts from the room next door to coach the president while he is at the podium, Trump is always going to be someone who marches to his own beat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Send Them In! (03/14 Vid of the Day)

The wee hours of Friday the 13th turned out to be my lucky day. That’s when I paid my visit to James Corden’s Late Late Show multiverse… tuning in just in the nick of time to witness the above clever and comical vignette. Be it intentional or not, Corden teamed up with Niall Horan, present an off-beat, Monty Python-esque approach to the ensuing comedy / tragedy… or to be more precise… the tragedy averted X4.

The following quote, courtesy of Corden’s YouTube site, further sets up the clip / tells the rest of the story…

“In an homage to The Proclaimers classic “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles),” James Corden and Niall Horan are available to show up and diffuse any high pressure situation and they’ll walk 500 miles to help.”

What a shame The Proclaimers… as portrayed… cannot sing their way to the betterment of society. There’s certainly no shortage of stumbling blocks to smooth over, infirmities to cure and wounds to heal.

Yet, on second thought, perhaps the levity they generate doth supply us a sublime starting point. How thoroughly we apply it to real life will be left up to us…

The Late Late Show with James Corden is Must See TV. Our above clip’s content is representative of the oft zany comedy that awaits us, stateside… week in / week out… each and every M-F along about 12:37 a.m. Uh… for those who reside elsewhere, check your local listings.

 

 

 

 

 

McCartney’s Carpool Karaoke ~ Vid of the Day

On a cold, wintry Sunday evening, February 9, 1964, I was amongst the estimated 73 Million TV viewers on hand to ear and eyewitness the Stateside Birth of the Beatles… courtesy of the “CBS Delivery Room’s” “Ol’ Doc” Ed Sullivan.

To have been there almost from the dawn’s earliest light of JPGR’s brilliant musical careers, is what played a significant role in my forming an instantaneous, nearly lifelong, long-distance, musical mind meld. As for that approximately 12-year age gap between us? It didn’t really matter… the rapport we were building was inevitable.

All of their music that was to follow… recorded both as bandmates and solo artists… dominated… still dominates… the soundtrack to my life. Since I’m familiar with every tune the Fab 4 ever commercially released, I can attest to the fact that there’s not one turkey (cold or otherwise LOL) to be found throughout that entire discography.

Transitioning to the Vid of the Day… My first order of biz is to thank CBS Late Late Show star James Corden for presenting and participating in such innovative, quality, TV programming. In comparison, many competing TV networks’ shows aired in the wee hours are not much more than 4-watt “nightlights”. Hell, I’ve even seen some overnight, music infomercials that dim those “nightlights”… put them to shame. But, I digress. Getting back on track…

In this video we find singer / songwriter / performer Sir Paul McCartney still at the top of his game… at the Mt. Everest apex… providing ample proof that age 76 is the new 26 (btw… my best, belated Happy Birthday wishes to Sir Paul — dob 06/18/1942). To continue to hear him delivering his trademark clever / playful / cheeky / dry wit… his uniquely-Beatle banter… easily elicits smiles and laughs. To ear and eyewitness him rocking on as if he’s still that young Liverpool Lad debuting on the Ed Sullivan Show is nothing short of a rejuvenating experience.

As for the affable ex-Beatle and chat show host’s actual interview / conversation, one can sense the strengthening mind-meld and rapport with each passing syllable. Like life itself, Sir Paul and James’ conversation touches base with a wide range of emotions. Their mutual, genuine feelings of joy flow… as do their shared tears of sorrow. For those who have chosen to read this prior to viewing, I’ll avoid relating both the specifics and concurrent need to issue spoiler alerts. Suffice to say… these real life moments are what breathe even more life into this autobiographical sketch / music video… virtually add that missing third dimension to our flat screens.

Perhaps this is just my sentimentality talking, but, to merely categorize Paul McCartney’s Carpool Karaoke as a Vid of the Day just doesn’t seem to cut it.

How about re-titling it to read: The Feel Good Vid of the Century… of the Millennium!

Oh… to hell with all the wordplay… if you haven’t yet done so… just play and enjoy the video! Don’t allow that 23:42 PB time to be of any concern to you. As soon as McCartney and Corden start rockin’ and rollin’… once the tunes are rockin’ and the car is rollin’… you’ll tap into that Sixties spirit, the time will surely fly by… and then… by video’s end…

You may even catch yourself “grousing”… “Oh NO! Over so soon?”
