Music Monday: The Lonely Island – Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie and Clyde Feat. Rihanna

I’ve liked The Lonely Island since their first album for 3 Reasons. The first reason is that the songs are usually rather HILARIOUS. I LLOL (Literally Laugh Out Loud). Secondly, They get some of the biggest names in music featured in their songs. How they get them to agree to doing these off the wall songs I don’t know. And lastly, for some odd reason I really like the beats! Haha! So if you haven’t had the pleasure of hearing their skits/music before, I present to you… THE LONELY ISLAND!!!




Sunday Sunday Sunday!!!

Sunday’s are honestly one of my favorite days of the week because I reserve it for doing absolutely nothing. And while some people would say that it is a waste of a day I beg to differ! Sunday’s really help me keep my sanity. During the week I work around 45 hours at my job. Going to work at 5 A.M. and getting out around 2. On top of Monday-Friday work I hang out with my friends, do projects at home, and sometimes do all nighters at the bar or club among other things. So don’t be surprised when I say I don’t have any weekend plans because my weekdays keep me so busy. Saturday’s usually contain some sort of activity but Sunday is definitely my recovery day.

This week Friday I’m super excited to see Lisa Lampenelli! She may be my all time favorite comedienne and this will be the first live stand up show I’ve ever seen! I don’t know if I’ll be able to get any pictures or video but I’m sure going to try!!! ALSO I want to make it out to Artprize one last time to see the Top 10 art pieces and vote! You people enjoy the rest of your weekend and get ready for the week however it is you do that!

Fall Television

With Fall comes the r turn of some of our favorite tv shows. Summer has gone by FAST and thank God because I had a craving for some GLEE! And although Alphas has been out for a few weeks it’s keeping me tuned in to see what happens next. PLUS it was good news to hear it had been green lit for a second season. ANOTHER  show that I am definitely excited for is Modern Family. It is such an amazing show if you haven’t seen it. Here are the three shows and a little bit about them:

Alphas: Currently still on its first season, Alphas is about a team of super powered humans working for the government. Their mission? Track down OTHER super powered humans. The cast is wildly diverse with my favorite character being Gary. One thing that sets this show apart from other ‘super hero’ shows is the powers they have aren’t always ones that have been done before. That, and their powers are explained in a scientific manner. Instead of just being accepted. Tune in to the Syfy network on Mondays 10/9c.

Modern Family: It’s third season premieres tomorrow and is on Wednesdays at 9/8c. Modern Family takes a look at 3 families and how they are connected to each other. The show includes multiracial, same-sex, and cross generational couples. It is hilarious and usually has pretty good themes. My favorite character? Gloria Delgado-Pritchette, the voluptuous fast talking Colombian.

GLEE: It’s third season premieres TODAY. Airing Tuesdays 8/7c. Set at McKinley High School, it’s about the glee club members trials and tribulations. The characters also have a wide range of diversity. Laced with pop music covers and now original music, Glee is a rollercoaster of emotions! Especially anything that has to deal with Kurt and his Dad! I cry every time…

So be sure to check out some of the above shows if you haven’t already. Let me know what shows YOU are looking forward to watch!

Looking for a Laugh?

I have always been a fan of stand up comedy. Stand up though, is about a lot more than being able to tell a joke. It’s about when to tell the joke, how to tell the joke, the set up, the punch line, the encore, the energy, and the list goes on and on. One of my all time favorite comediennes is the “Queen of Mean” Lisa Lampenelli (whose show I will get to see THIS OCTOBER!!!).

She got her moniker “Queen of Mean” because she takes shit from no one, talks shit about EVERYONE, and doesn’t give a F**K!! She will make fun of everyone, no matter race, gender, sexuality, handicap, NOTHING is off limits. You may have seen her on several of Comedy Central’s Roasts. She always steals the show for me. I’m going to leave you with a little clip from The Roast of Larry the Cable Guy. Trust me she WILL make you laugh. She is definitely not for the faint of heart or easily offended. Oh and she swears like every other word so she is:




So what did you think!? Did you laugh? Were you offended? Comment Below!


I also will do a follow up post after I see her October 7th in Kalamazoo!!! Tickets are still available!!!
