It’s Friday ….Motes Of Happy

It’s my ball: In response to widespread criticism of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s demographics and conduct, which has threatened the very existence of the annual Golden Globe Awards, the HFPA’s board has written a letter to the organization’s members calling on them to approve a sweeping set of reforms. The board vowed that it will take “more serious measures,” including but not limited to resigning, if the membership does not approve and implement the reforms in a timely manner. So do it my way, or I’ll take my ball and go home. Well, Bye.

Is it true in some cities Target is only hiring door greeters with recent combat experience?

Probably watch a couple more: Recently watched a couple of the “Young Rock” shows, and enjoyed them. The script is written with a great deal of self-deprecating humor between Dwayne, his Dad, and his Grandmother Lia, who I worked for as an announcer and tv commentator. I even recognized a couple of the incidents included in the episodes I watched so maybe that added to the enjoyment. It’s not everyone’s type of humor, but it is mine. Only problem is the Rock IS a Biden backer, so maybe not.

Unequal justice: A Florida mother and her teenage daughter each face up to 16 years in prison after rigging a high school homecoming court competition, officials announced on Tuesday. In October,2020, 117 votes for Tate High School’s Homecoming Court all originating from the same IP address within a short period of time and were flagged as fraudulent 16 years? Hell, Biden only got 4 years. I hope.

I’ll watch this too: NBC has given a pilot order to Night Court, a follow-up to the classic legal comedy series, starring The Big Bang Theory’s Melissa Rauch and the original series’ co-star John Larroquette reprising his Emmy-winning role. Rauch will play the daughter of “Judge Harry Stone”. Heck, I’ll watch it just to see “DA Dan Fielding” as old (and still horny).

Not a TV mote:  Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) stated that there is emotional fatigue among black lawmakers because they have to have conversations with those “who want to turn a blind eye to the injustices that exist within our systems, who continue to insist that this country is not a country that is racist, that our systems don’t have racism embedded in them.” All I can say, that is a two way street. We who try to speak up for the other side of that argument often feel like we’re talking to a wall. Especially when the conversation always starts with blaming Trump for everything.

Spending weekend in Hilo doing lawn, hedge, and stuff. Probably, mostly stuff. Maybe some Woodford Reserve stuff. Definitely some Woodford Reserve stuff.
