The IF Factor: Questions Answered #271-280

271. If you were to be a news correspondent posted to any foreign country, where would you like to go?

Probably somewhere relaxing, tropical, friendly, and where nothing catastrophic ever happens. Caribbean. More specifically, St. Croix. 

272. If you had to choose a time in history when overall things were worse than any single time, when would you say it was?

The time of slavery in this country. Even the things we thought were good, weren't as best as they could be. Diversity makes everything better.

273. If you could take away the vocal chords of any person, who would it be?

Anyone with one of the following accents: Boston, Bajan, or Staten Island/Long Island. Really, you can pick any of these as an answer. I'd be alright if I never hear those again. 

274. If you you could be a guest on any television talk show, which would it be?

Centerstage on YES. 

275. If you could keep only one thing that is in your bathroom right now, as the only thing in there forever, what would you save?

Weird question. I'll go with a small cup I have from Madison Square Garden that doubles as water class/spit cup. It's retro, and probably the only thing I'd keep forever in my bathroom. 

276. If you could have prevented one event in history, what event would you eliminate?

Doubling up on my answer from #272, I'm going to go with slavery. 

277. If you had to rename your hometown, what would you call it?

I'm not sure how I could rename Brooklyn. The name is so cool as is. But I guess I would go with the officially county name of Brooklyn - Kings. It's fitting as it is the greatest place on earth. 

278. If you could teach your children only one lesson in life, what would it be?

Integrity for themselves and for others. 

279. If you had to be a member of another family you know, which family would you join?

The Royal Family. To be forever rich and have pretty authentic British accents would be awesome. 

280. If you had the chance to make one purchase that you have passed up in your lifetime, what would it be?

PlayStation 3. Bought an X-Box and missed out on several years of playing MLB The Show. Although , it might have worked out as I saved myelf plenty of unproductive hours in my life. 

No worries though as I'll be purchasing a PS4 next month.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 12/13/20

  3 Up 1. Vaccines - Well, it's here. The FDA approved emergency use of multiple vaccines (with more to come) and it now feels like there is a significant light at the end of this dark, scary tunnel. We're not out of it yet as the virus continues to rage, shutdown are pending, and vaccines distribution is sure to be polarizing. But at the very least, there is an answer forthcoming. Continue to stay safe, ya'll.  2. Rashinda Jones at MSNBC - This is small, but it is super cool. Rashida Jones - no, not that Rashida Jones of Ann Perkins...or Karen Filepelli fame - became the first black President of a major news network, taking over at MSNBC. The country needs a new shift in cable news in the worst way, and hopefully Jones can be a part of it. At the very least, it's nice to see the industry having representation at all levels.

Hard to Kill 2023 Review: "A Great Way to Kick Off 2023"

Impact Wrestling continues to be the most solid pro wrestling product - at least for this fan. Yes, there are some other exciting things going on in different companies, but for me, Impact does the most with the least, and that's a good thing.  As noted in some previous posts on Impact Wrestling, I was all about bringing in Bully Ray. I get the hesitancy because,  here we go with old stars taking up television time , but everything about the Bully and Josh Alexander storyline has been done well. It's been personal. It's a different look for Alexander. And it's a nice blend of history for the company with Bully returning, a nice mix of a veteran and your current top guy, and overall, something very different we've yet to see from Alexander as champion.  This is the case up and down the roster and the product for Impact. Add to this theory Mickie James vs. Jordynne Grace. And the tag team scene. And everything else. The company continues to rehabilitate older stars, l

Reaction to Nike's Kaepernick Ad

So in shocking fashion, the juggernaut that is Nike has now backed Colin Kaepernick and all that is, was, and has become, in this on-going dilemma. And of course, has now added a new layer to it all. Interestingly enough, the company fully supports Kap, and has centered the 30th Anniversary of it's "Just Do It" campaign around him, continuing a clear divide of idealism and ridiculousness across the country. And shall I say, even more absurd rhetoric on defining patriotism in the good ol' United States of America. First things, first. If you're new to this blog, I'll catch you up to speed on my stance - I've been with Kap. And no, I'm not "anti-American". But I'm pretty sure you will jump to conclusions and tell me that I am.

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Life Itself (2018)

Who is in it?  The happenstance and journey of a young New York City couple cause a reverberation of several instances and effects that echos and effects several others through various generations.  What is it about? Oscar Isaac - Will Olivia Wilde - Abby Olivia Cooke - Dylan Sergio Peris-Mencheta - Javier Gonzalez Laia Costa - Isabel Diaz Antonio Banderas - Mr. Saccione Favorite Scene:   The alternate scene from the original bedroom scene between Will and Abby shows a different version of what happened with the exact words used, just a different tone - indicating that life itself isn't the greatest narrator, and we all have our own versions of a story that is possibly part of a bigger story.  Favorite Quote:  "I crave a happy life, grandpa. I have an almost desperate craving for stability and happiness like fat people crave chocolate or lost hikers crave rescue. I want to live a big, great, fantastical life, but I am concerned that the tragedy that seems to follow me, the tra
