Exercise grabs a hold of me tightly

10 Memories I Have Of “Sesame Street”

I grew up with parents who were not particularly pro-television. My dad even attached a scarf to the top of our TV and would insist on pulling it down to cover the screen during commercials (he also muted the sound). But one show they were always in favor of me watching was “Sesame Street.” I grew up with Big Bird, Telly, Grover, Oscar, the Count, and all of their human friends and have many amazing memories to show for it. I also believe the show helped instill a love of learning, a sense of compassion, and a genuine curiosity about the world around me. Given that the show has been referenced in the same breath as cutting funding for PBS by Mitt Romney — just to be clear, the show actually receives a very small portion of its funding from PBS, and PBS only takes up .014 percent of the federal budget — I thought it would be a good time to review the show’s significance. Because if anything, these empty threats to “kill Big Bird” should serve as a reminder of why “Sesame Street” is so important.

5 Dumbest Moments Of The 1st Presidential Debate

Still feeling the Rocky Mountain High from the first Presidential debate?  We sure are.  Others will fact check — we can’t — we’re dumb.  Think of us as “fun checkers.”  Isn’t that adorbz? Anyway, here are the five flat-out dumbest moments of the night with our ribbing for your pleasure:

1. Dueling Flag Pins: Guys, it’s embarrassing showing up to a party wearing the same patriotic bling. Well, not exactly the same — Romney’s was two millimeters bigger than Obama’s.  That means he loves America more, right?

2. Big Bird: The mellow yellow icon was shown some love by Romney — the same guy who had just pledged to de-feather his PBS nest if elected.  Even dumber, Twitter parody accounts sprouted faster than bird seed in fresh manure.  Lots of attention whores people started tweeting as Big Bird and then lemmings people flocked to follow them.  Cue the inevitable articles about social media being important written for the AARP set, who will, inevitably, still have no clue what it is.  e.g. “Social media? That’s new fangled clap trap!  Now go back to yer Phasebook and git off my lawn!” Read more…

Mitt Romney’s Bronze: Political Makeup Artists On The Perils Of Their Craft

Mitt Romney’s appearance on Spanish-language news channel Univision yesterday demonstrated a peril of modern politics as old as televised campaigns: men’s makeup. Ever since Richard Nixon refused professional makeup in favor of drugstore stubble-coverup for the first-ever televised debate against the youthfully radiant John F. Kennedy in 1960 — a choice many say cost him the debate — male politicians have been forced to perform a cosmetic balancing act traditionally reserved for women and actors. Underdo it, and risk subconsciously turning off voters with the pallor, dark under-eye circles, and beads of sweat drawn out by hot on-set lights. But go a shade too dark and risk losing the day’s narrative to blog posts like “Mitt Dons Brownface For Forum with Mexicans.” Read more…
