TWENTY YEARS AGO

20th Anniversary of Ellen Degeneres Coming Out

I remember as if it was yesterday.

I watched Ellen’s sitcom religiously.

I followed all her antics and was waiting for that one episode.

I was with you, I’m still with you and will always be with you, Ellen.

Thank you!!

YEP I’M GAY

Did you expect it to turn into all of this?,” Oprah Winfrey asked Ellen DeGeneres on an episode of her talk show that aired on the afternoon of April 30, 1997.

Two weeks earlier, a Time cover had debuted, featuring DeGeneres and the instantly famous words “Yep, I’m Gay.”

On April 25, DeGeneres spoke to Diane Sawyer on 20/20 and said, “I decided this was not going to be something that I was going to live the rest of my life being ashamed of.”

Hours after the Oprah interview aired, DeGeneres’s charismatic bookstore owner character, Ellen Morgan, followed suit, coming out as gay in a one-hour, two-part episode of her sitcom Ellen. “The Puppy Episode” was watched by an estimated 44 million people, nearly three times the show’s usual ratings.

It’s been 20 years since that April.

DeGeneres has hosted her own daytime talk show, also called Ellen, for nearly 14 years. She’s hosted the Oscars, won the Presidential Medal of Freedom, starred in two blockbuster cartoons, and all the while lived openly as a gay woman.

E420

~~April 20, 2017~~ 

WEED DAY

420, 4:20, or 4/20 (pronounced four-twenty) is a code-term that refers to the consumption of cannabis, especially smoking cannabis around the time 4:20 p.m./a.m. (or 16:20 in 24-hour notation) and smoking and celebrating cannabis on the date April 20 (which is 4/20 in U.S. form).

Such a special day!

Even Ellen got some of the action.

Take a look at ‘her take’.

You know a date that celebrates the use of marijuana has become somewhat of a norm when it’s a feature on The Ellen Show.

It’s 420 and Ellen DeGeneres just so happened to stumble upon some 420 inspired children’s books and shared it with her audience and viewers.

Something to think about …. “Meryl Streep …. She Persisted …. so glad she did …. “!!


MerylUplift

~~April 1, 2017~~ 

SHE PERSISTED 

(She’s in good company!)

Mary Louise “Meryl” Streep (born June 22, 1949) is an American actress of stage and screen, and philanthropist. Cited in the media as the “best actress of her generation” – a designation to which she objects – Streep is particularly known for her versatility in her roles, transformation into the characters she plays, and her accent adaptation.

This is a list of awards and nominations for Meryl Streep. Streep has been recognized with multiple awards and nominations for her work in film, television, and music.

She holds the record for the most Academy Award nominations of any actor, having been nominated 20 times since her first nomination in 1979 for her performance in The Deer Hunter (sixteen for Best Actress and four for Best Supporting Actress). She holds eight more nominations than both Katharine Hepburn and Jack Nicholson, who are tied in second place. With her third Oscar win for her performance as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady (2011) in 2012, Streep became the fifth actor to win three competitive acting Academy Awards, after Walter Brennan, Katharine Hepburn (who has four in total), Ingrid Bergman, and Jack Nicholson. Daniel Day-Lewis has since become the sixth actor to achieve this.

WHAT I HAVE IN COMMON WITH DRUMPF …. “interesting humor …. could apply to all …. “!!

IN COMMON WITH DRUMPF

Never thought that there’d be anything I’d have in common.

After reading this article in the New Yorker, there could be some points of intersection.

Maybe there are some for you!

Again, I can say for myself, that only humor helps me make it through the day!

I have never read the second half of “Infinite Jest”; I have never read “The Art of the Deal,” by Donald Trump; and other shared attributes.
By Ethan Kuperberg

I love television.

I have almost zero understanding of international politics.

I have not exercised in 2017.

I have never read the second half of “Infinite Jest.”

I have never read “The Art of the Deal,” by Drumpf.

I know it’s silly and will never happen, but I secretly wish that Barack Obama were my best friend.

I have been scared every day since November 8, 2016.

I’m not as good at having sex as I think I am.

I am related to Jewish people whom I don’t understand.

A waiter once forgot to charge me for a drink at a restaurant, and I did not tell him to adjust the check.

Melania Trump has no interest in having sex with me.

When I get really stressed out, I like to watch the film “Finding Dory.”

I have recently Internet-stalked the people who bullied me in middle school.

I need more therapy than I am currently undergoing.

I look awful in hats.

Hillary Clinton is much smarter than I am, and I know it.

I would rather win an Emmy than be in politics.

I would rather win a free drink at the Coffee Bean than be in politics.

BLine

Sometimes I wish that dogs could talk. I wonder what they would say.

Not to harp on it, but “Finding Dory” has a plotline that I find easy to follow.

I am not on the correct medication.

I have a recurring nightmare in which my father tells me that he is not proud of me.

I have never had a one-on-one conversation with Tiffany Trump that lasted for longer than ten minutes.

I’m pretty sure I’m not gay, but every once in a while I see an attractive man and I think, Geez, that guy is good-looking.

I hope they make a sequel to “Finding Dory.”

I think that Paul Ryan is a fucking wimp.

I will never understand what it’s like to be a Syrian refugee.

It’s embarrassing to admit, but all I want, deeply and unequivocally, on any given day, at any given hour, is to have someone look me in the eye and tell me, with complete and profound sincerity, “I love you.”

I have never been democratically elected President of the United States.

Ethan Kuperberg is a filmmaker and a writer for the TV series “Transparent,” which recently won five Emmy Awards.

‘WHEEL OF MUSICAL IMPRESSIONS’

DEMI LOVATO

Comedian Jimmy Fallon loves to make his celebrity guests partake in the hilarious “Wheel of Musical Impressions” segment of The Tonight Show.

It’s a fun game where a random singer is paired up with a random song title. Jimmy’s guest goes head to head with him to see who is better at doing a successful impression of the artist singing that song. The combinations that the “wheel” comes up with are pretty wild, and it almost always has everyone in stitches.

Some guests can do some pretty amazing impressions.

Here you have Demi Lovato!
