2015 AUS OPEN: Women's Quarterfinals Preview  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
The women's quarterfinals are now set at the 2015 Australian Open. Last year, I predicted 1 of 4 women's quarterfinals correctly and 1 of 4 men's quarterfinals correctly. I will also preview the 2015 Australian Open men's quarterfinals.Serena Williams (USA) [1]  vs Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) [11].mSerena Williams got revenge on Gabine Muguruza in a hard-fought 2-6 6-3 6-2 win that was a lot closer than the score indicates. Cibulkova, last year's surprise finalist here, played what most observers are calling the best match of the tournament to date in her win over 2-time Australian Open champion Vika Azarenka, coming ...

And the SAG Award winners are …  »  popbytes
We’re in the home stretch of awards season, which means it’s time for the guild awards to start handing out pudding amongst their peers. This weekend gave us the double-header of the Producers Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild, who both saw fit to give top honors to Birdman, which now puts it neck and neck with Boyhood for the top pudding at the Oscars. Anyway, let’s take a look at all the actors who were rewarded for their work this weekend, shall we? From Variety ...

Trailer: ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ w/ Ellie Kemper!  »  popbytes
A little while ago, we talked about how NBC passed on Tina Fey‘s new show, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, because … I dunno. Maybe one of the executives’ parents died of laughter and this is their revenge. Who knows? Anyway, the series made its way to Netflix, and here’s our first official look at it. Initial impressions: The writing is sharp, especially when it hits the throwaway gags (“WHITE WOMEN FOUND! Hispanic woman also found.” Nicely done.) and Ellie Kemper really knows how to sell every line with terminal delightfulness. Also, I’m happy to see Tituss Burgess is in ...

Viewing  »  A Life in the Day
Skimming the list of his year's Oscar nominees, and I'v seen a grand total of...eight of the films. That's going through all categories. I'm actually not surprised at how low the number is; most of the movies released in 2014 failed to garner enough interest from either of us to go to a movie theater. (And, truth br told, I watched one of the movies a few days ago on Netflix.)The movies?Into the WoodsThe Grand Budapest HotelGuardians of the GalaxyThe LEGO MovieX-Men: Days of Future PastCaptain America: The Winter SoldierIdaMaleficentIs it sacrilege to say that I'm not all that interested in ...

EYE CANDY: Pierre Abena  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Pierre Abena is beautiful, multiracial model of Italian and Cameroonian descent from Paris who now lives in Los Angeles. He has his own website at PierreAbena.com and is also active on Instagram and Facebook. He is represented by the Wilhelmina Models agency.

Regardless, I am sure you will agree with me that he is definitely Eye candy material!Hat/tip ...

QUEER QUOTE: Obama Hopes Supreme Court Makes "Right Decision" In Marriage Case  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
President Barack Obama gave an interview with YouTube celebrity GloZell Green where he expressed support for a decision from the U.S. Supreme Court that will legalize marriage equality throughout the country.What he actually said is today's Queer Quote:My hope is that they go ahead and recognize what I think the majority of people in America now recognize, which is two people who love each other and are treating each other with respect, and aren’t bothering anybody else, why would the law treat them differently? Why? There’s no good reason for it, and so as a ...

iTunes Saturday - Cherry Bomb  »  A Life in the Day
I think some folks might be a bit surprised by some of the songs in my iTunes list. True, I have showtunes, music from movies, dance music, many lgbt artists, and a bit of 80s classics, but I also like some songs that people would never suspect, such as this week's selection. The song was featured in the recent film Guardians of the Galaxy, but I've liked it for much longer. Cherry Bomb by The Runaways.... ...

Theory into Action.  »  a guy named dave
Crashed in Brooklyn last night with my bud, Patrick, who's also the designer behind the NEMstudents.It was a trek and half getting to Columbia this afternoon, but Cleve was there speaking with students. It reminded me of when he spoke at 1FEST, intimately with students. Very real. About their concerns and the direction of this movement. He spoke about the need for students to take charge, to take hold, but for a greater need to develop an understanding of civil disobedience...I spoke with students after the event. We need to think bigger, we agreed. Nobody is going ...

The vanishing of a one-star review  »  Fiat Blog!
My response to a one-star customer review for the game The Vanishing of Ethan Carter:Since your review is about Steam and not about the game itself, you should remove it. I played the demo a while ago and was impressed with the quality of the game, and when I saw that the game had received only one star from one reviewer I wondered why and read your review. (I'm not associated with Nordic Games at all; I don't even know where they're located.) Your review isn't about the game, since it's a game you own that never gets played. ...

OMG! Federal Judge Strikes Down Alabama's Ban On Marriage Equality  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Wow. Look at the map of marriage equality now. By my count there are 38 states that are dark blue (or "sapphire") because they have marriage equality in effect right now. Just visually this makes the point that the Supreme Court will basically be in "mop up" mode when it decides marriage equality cases this term and probably turns the remaining dozen red and yellow states to the uniform sapphire of the rest of the Union.Today a federal judge in Aabama appointed by Presiudent George W, Bush on the recommendation of both Republican U.S. Senators ...

Netflixin'  »  A Life in the Day
These are a few more of my recent finds on Netflix that are definitely worth watching.... I watched an episode of this many months ago when it was on BBC America...or PBS. I don't know why, but I never caught another episode until Neflix. One weekend in December, I decided to watch the first episode and wound up bingewatching the entire 8-part series that night. For those who aren't familiar with Broadchurch, it focuses on the death of an 11-year-old boy in a small Dorset town. The series focuses on the police investigation lead by Detective Inspector ...
