Happy Hanukkah everyone! Sorry for missing First Candle yesterday!

Here, have a Simon Amstell. :D

1. Hanukkah and Christmas are almost upon us! Hanukkah is, as I've iterated before, my favouritest Jewish holiday of them alllllllll (and it always makes me sad when Jon Stewart tries to reconcile it with Pagan Jesustide Christmas), and so my Menorah is already out and waiting to be lit. :D As my Roomie is half-Christian, half-Muslim, I put out some Christmas decorations at her behest. Now my place looks like the clashing of the SPARKLES, or otherwise the kingdom of LED. WUT.





2. I saw Sherlock Holmes you guys, and there was a surprise!TDKR trailer before it (but I'm only spoiling Sherlock Holmes) )


3. Speaking of Batman, I miss "Community". :( I've been marathoning season 2 the last couple of days. So here's an ABSOLUTELY AWESOME fanart of the cast of "Community" as Batman villains:





4. And if we want to be COMPLETELY geeky, here's someone's suggestion for a new "League of Gentlemen":





I WOULD LIKE TO SUBSCRIBE TO THIS PERSON'S NEWSLETTER KTX.

loony_moony: (Jon Stewart: I promised I wouldn't cry!)
First of all, happy 2011 everyone! We're into the second decade of the 21st century, and the world still hasn't ended. Can someone tell that to all the nutcases littering Port Authority?

Secondly, I've been wanting to write this entry for a while now. Well, I also wanted to write a sum of 2010 entry too, but then life happened and I didn't have time or energy. Bah, humbug.

Anyhow. So, as I'm sure most of my flist knows, In his last show in 2010, Jon Stewart dedicated the entire show to the Zadroga (or 9/11 responders) bill in a carefully orchestrated move. The direct result of this show (and the full month of continuous campaigning Stewart did beforehand) was the passage of the bill in both the House and the Senate in the remaning week of the session. Which, of course, got everyone talking again about Stewart and what The Daily Show actually does. Most notably, the New York Times wrote a full article about Stewart's influence, making him into a 21st century Edward R. Murrow, and NPR chiming in somewhat more sanely (but it was pre-passage, which is important to remember). Then, in a responding article, analyst Andrew Cohen made a very good point by saying 'he's no Murrow, he's Stewart, and that's plenty'.

My two cents (as a huge nerd of media and politics, and a Stewart fangirl to boot)? There is a difference between what Jon Stewart normally does on The Daily Show, and what he did on December 16th. 9/11 is an issue that has been extremely sensitive to Jon Stewart, and so his sense of obligation to defend the people who defended New York that day (and dealt with Ground Zero onward) hugely played into this whole deal. When Jon Stewart normally campaigns for things, he does it on his free time (like "The Evening of Too Many Stars" autism charity benefit, for instance). I feel like media analysts keep getting him wrong, by lumping in his political views, his criticism and what The Daily Show does.

Jon Stewart may be the most brilliant political analyst of our time. He really is very, very bright at what he does. But what he does is not journalism; he analyzes political waves and the media that covers them, and in rare occasions like December 16th, he lobbies. Neither of these things are investigative journalism. The Daily Show is not a show of breaking news, but a satiric commentary on the 24-hour news networks. It's, quite simply, infotainment. You don't watch The Daily Show to hear about their latest discovery; you watch it to get its perspective on the big stories of the day/week/month. I keep gaping at respectable news outlets getting this simple distinction wrong, whether knowingly or mistakenly.

It's hard for the media to give Jon Stewart the benefit of the doubt. He repeatedly insists that he hosts a fake news show in a channel championing ridiculous comedy, and he self-deprecatingly refuses to acknowledge that he is an extremely intelligent man who is well-spoken and wields great cultural and political power. But the thing is, Jon Stewart knows not to blow his horns. In a field full of people with huge egos and horrible cases of narcissism, he keeps a low profile and talks humbly of his own successes. I'm sure he celebrated when he heard of the passing of the 9/11 bill, but he's not about to brag about it to Brian Williams in Nightly News, for instance. Other journalists seem to take it as a sign of cowardliness, but it really is just a sign of levelheadedness. Jon Stewart is a reasonable man.

And by the way? I thought the 12/16 show was incredibly touching. My god. At least one of those men was dying, for crying out loud. How much more human than this can you get.

SO GUESS WHAT, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY.



AND FOR MY BIRTHDAY, I'M BRINGING YOU THIS FOLLOWING AWESOME:

1. TOM HARDY, YOU ARE KILLING ME.

This dude, he finds a KITTEN IN THE STREET. TAKES THE KITTEN BACK TO HIS HOTEL AND TREATS IT AND FINDS SOMEONE TO ADOPT IT. Could this get any better? Why yes, because Tom Hardy? Is a HILARIOUS WRITER.

EXAMPLE:

On the way back from the internet cafe yesterday, there’s this kitten in the road, and I’m like. hey kat whssup? then I had to double take. that’s a small cat as cats go. it’s prolly like a couple months old max. so I’m like hey little fella, and I look about but no one is looking for this thing. so I stopped and turned round and said hey kat where’s your family, and he’s like I don’t know. then he wanders up to me and bang he’s in my scoop and I’m looking around I ask a few old ladies this your cat

2. TOM HARDY IS STILL KILLING ME. Because apart from being a nice man and a hilarious writer (AND SO GODDAMN HOT HE PINGS ALL MY DEAN WINCHESTER BUTTONS LIKE ALL THE FUCKING TIME), he's also well-spoken. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK I CAN'T EVEN.



TOM HARDY, PLEASE TELL ME YOU MET MISHA COLLINS. AND THAT SOMEONE TOOK A VIDEO OF IT.

3. TOM HARDY AND CHRIS PINE, YOU ARE DOUBLE KILLING ME

Because you look like a beautiful gay couple and it's KILLING ME you're not actually playing a gay couple in this movie. Also whoever is dressing Hardy is CLEARLY a Deangirl. Also? A SAINT.

4. JON HAMM, NEVER WEAR UNDERWEAR AGAIN.

Because Hellloooooooo. :D

5. JON HAMM, YOU ARE AMAZING AND SPARKLY AND MAGICAL AND PLEASE NEVER STOP DOING COMEDY.





(sorry for the Hulu, international folk! I truly tried to find the clips anywhere else)

Remember that music post I made about Eric Whitacre's music?

Well, today I found a YouTube video of a FANTASTIC choir performing "Sleep" in what has to be one of the best concert halls in the US, conducted by Whitacre himself.



GUH. GUH GUH GUH MUSIC ORGASM GUH. If I ever get to sing this, I would fight tooth and nail for the opportunity omfg.

On a more mature note, the more I listen to Whitacre, the more I'm convinced he is going to be one of the main voices in the American classical style (my amateur terming), and music such as his will be remembered for far longer than all the post-Webernian monstrosities I had the misfortune to hear in my academic life.

ETA: AWESOME. SO MUCH AWESOME.



Can we have more people like this dude composing classical music please?

1. As I promised, I'm doing a picspam comprised entirely of those comparison pics people made of the SPN dudes and cute little animals. You've probably seen most of these BUT I DON'T CARE.

BECAUSE THEY ARE THE SAME (warning for some usage of gifs) )

2. Also, today Colin Firth turns 50! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ORIGINAL GQMF! :D
