THIS IS AMERICA

Quite a strong message.

Here’s the Saturday Night Performance.

The title is right on target:

This IS America!

Be forewarned.

Some content may be offensive to some who may shy away from the sad reality.

I had to look up the lyrics to get the full meaning.

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

O-M-G!

~Thy Rock ‘N’ Roll Holiness Electrifies In Amped Up Musical Event~

Yesterday, on Easter Sunday, I was visiting family to celebrate the occasion.
I had set my DVR in case I wasn’t home before the show began … and that was the case.

You see, back in 1970, when the LP was released, it became one of my favorite musical ever. I would stay in my room, lyrics in hand, headphones in place … till the wee hours in the morning listening to the music over and over.

Watching the show last night lead to many happy memories and moments of amazing flashbacks.

To my surprise, I remembered most of the lyrics.

For me, back then, the musical represented a state of the times … these being the times of Jesus Christ and the times when the musical production was released. To me, it was an attempt to explain the story of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Judas, the Apostles and the politico-social reality of the era. It was also an attempt to bring humanity to the characters.

I found it quite interesting that 48 years after the initial release, the message still rang true and applied to the times we are currently living.

I definitely loved the concert.

I think the set, the musicians, the development concepts and the performances were beyond amazing.

John Legend, Sara Barielles, Alice Cooper and Brandon Victor Dixon were flawless. 

In other words, I loved it!

It’s great that I have it recorded and can watch it over and over and over.

I will buy the DVD for sure when it’s released!

Jesus Christ Superstar is a 1970 rock opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. The musical started as a rock opera concept album before its Broadway debut in 1971.

The musical is mostly sung-through, with little spoken dialogue. The story is loosely based on the Gospels’ accounts of the last week of Jesus’s life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion. It depicts political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus that are not present in the Bible.

The work’s depiction offers a free interpretation of the psychology of Jesus and the other characters. A large part of the plot focuses on the character of Judas, who is depicted as a tragic figure dissatisfied with the direction in which Jesus steers his disciples. Contemporary attitudes and sensibilities (as well as slang) pervade the lyrics, and ironic allusions to modern life are scattered throughout the depiction of political events. Stage and film productions accordingly contain many intentional anachronisms.

It’s only appropriate that NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert aired on Easter Sunday.

There is no better way to celebrate the Holy holiday than with an Easter egg hunt in the day and a live TV adaptation of an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical at night. And when it comes to NBC live musical events, Jesus Christ Superstar ranks at the top.

What could have felt like a dated rock opera was more like an uproarious arena concert filled with screaming fans, frenetic lights, blaring speakers, pyrotechnics and a group of musicians and performers fueled with the spirit of a chaotic electric guitar wildly flailing about – just how Jesus would have wanted it.

OPRAH …. “🏆 Intro and Powerful Speech …. Golden Globes 2018 🏆 …. “!!

~~January 8, 2018~~ 

THEIR TIME IS UP

MAGNIFICENCE!! 

 ~Annual Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement~

I’ve always admired her. I followed her when she had her TV show. Her movies, her OWN Network.

So deserving of this award.

Listen and watch the introduction and her powerful speech.

The video speaks for itself.

~Full Transcript of Oprah’s Inspirational Golden Globes Speech~

Oprah Winfrey was the recipient of the Golden Globes‘ annual Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement, and gave a powerful acceptance speech during Sunday night’s ceremony. She was introduced by Reese Witherspoon, who compared their time together on the set of A Wrinkle in Time to a master class at Harvard Business School and a spiritual retreat all in one.

“Oprah’s hugs could end wars, solve world peace,” Witherspoon joked.

Once Winfrey took the stage, she delivered an inspirational, uplifting speech which discussed race and gender and the fight for equality. She also told the story of Recy Taylor, a woman who fought for justice in the Jim Crow era after she was raped.

“For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men,” Winfrey said, bringing the audience to its feet.

“But their time is up.

Their time is up.”

~TRUMP DEFENSIVE AFTER WITHERING SPEECH BY MERYL STREEP~
Editorial Staff

(January 9, 2017)

Donald Trump took to twitter this morning in an attempt to refute Meryl Streep’s denunciations, leveled during an emotional acceptance speech at last night’s Golden Globe Awards.

Without once mentioning his name, Streep nonetheless had portrayed Trump as a bully who uses his position of power and capacity to humiliate and disrespect others.

CANDY AT THE FOREFRONT

The level to which election cycle process has dropped to is totally unbelievable.

From ‘Lyin’ Ted, to sweaty and thirsty Marco, to comparing size of certain anatomy areas, to insults about wives, to face tans and small hands, to declining endorsements and then caving in …

we’ve seen the complete gamut of low level thoughts and behavior from ‘future leaders’.

It’s been boom season for late night comedians.

Here’s a cool, funny example.

Enjoy!

Conan Releases Donald Trump’s Other Candy-Related Ads

After Donald Trump Jr. compared Syrian refugees to Skittles on Monday, September 19, the internet understandably lost its s**t.

But wait there’s more!

Conan reveals some other Donald Trump ads where the GOP candidate uses candy to push his deliciously bigoted political agendas.

Mmm, bigotry.
