Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/6/18


3 Up

1. New Year - It's 2019! The last year of the teens in this century! Wishing all of you a Happy New Year!

2. NY State Changing Tables - It's a new year, and New York State are making some big moves in adding changing tables into ALL bathrooms. As a Dad now, I'm all for this. And yes, I've been there in the disappointment of not having one.

3. Bird Box - I haven't seen it yet. But it is incredible how the Netflix film has taken off. The holidays will definitely do that. I'm pretty sure the week between Christmas and New Years will now be a big release period for streaming services. I know I burned through a few movies...

3 Down

1. Jazmine Barnes - So incredibly sad. The entire story - so absolutely senseless.

2. Government Shutdown - The holidays were a good break from politics and the nonsense that surrounds Washington these days. But now, it's back to reality and we have a shutdown because our President won't get his way. But what is even worse are the ramifications we are seeing from those working in the public sector.

3. R.Kelly Debate - With the recent documentary chronicling the stories of those abused by the singer, it's amazing the discussion that has risen surrounding Kelly. Let's simplify this - Kelly is wrong. Kelly has been wrong. We've all known Kelly has been wrong. End. Of. Discussion.

1 Awesome

1. DeAndre Hopkins - Shout out to the Houston Texans wide receiver who donated his check this week to the family of Jazmine Barnes. Kudos.

3 Up 1. Bad Bunny - Congratulations (and major breakthrough props) are in order for Bad Bunny who made history with the first Spanish-Language Album of the Year nomination. The dude has been crushing it with major cross-over appeal - and yes, he's a helluva wrestler.  2. Taylor Swift - This could be a down because of the entire Ticketmaster ordeal, but Swift gets the "Up" solely because only she can break Ticketmaster like this. The star power continues to be amazing.  3. FIFA World Cup - Sure, there is plenty of negatives to get into here, but the event itself is amazing. I'm ready to get caught up in it all.  3 Down 1. Iran Protestors - The nation is in political unrest and many protesters being caught are being sentenced to harsh penalties, or worse, death. Just more instability  2. U.S. Mass Shootings - We just continue to give access to individuals who shouldn't have guns. We've become so numb to this. What have we become?  Prayers, comfort, and positive

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.

  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.
