The older I get, the more I think this may be the greatest moment in American television history.

I’m never gonna watch Young Pope. There’s no way the actual show can live up to my imagination. 

You might be surprised :)




Faves From A Problematic 2016 — Part 3: This Time It’s Personal

Faves From A Problematic 2016 — Part 3: This Time It’s Personal:

This project ended up taking a lot more time than I expected. But here’s the last piece, featuring Wesley Morris, Grease: Live, @okbjgm and a late reprieve from my stunning lack of financial acumen.




"The problem, and the good news, is that The Young Pope as an online phenomenon relies on a version..."

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 18:59:31 -0800

“The problem, and the good news, is that The Young Pope as an online phenomenon relies on a version of The Young Pope that doesn’t actually exist: a version that isn’t cognizant of how ridiculous it is, and doesn’t take full advantage of that ridiculousness. If you’re just looking to fire off some jokes in exchange for virtual hearts, or even if you’re HBO — viewers are viewers, ironic or not — that doesn’t change much. It also doesn’t make the gap between the two Young Popes any less fascinating, nor the internet’s ability to create an entire alternate show for the sole purpose of reacting to it sight unseen. All that’s left is to see whether The Young Pope as we’ve joked it into being can coexist with The Young Pope as it actually is.”

While we’re trying to parse out fact from fiction, though, there’s the matter that nobody has been seriously attached to the John Stewart role, even in the world of internet rumor. As you might expect, that opens up the door for a lot of actors to talk about how much they’d like to play the part. 

One such actor is This is Us and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story star Sterling K. Brown, who took to Twitter at the behest of Emmy-winning writer/producer Jay Bushman to plead his case.

In my much angrier days I read a lot of Larry Kramer, and then had the chance to work with him as an editor and an activist. Of all the things he taught me about how to use my anger to make good in the world the one I remember best is quiet and small, or as quiet and small as a loud man like Larry Kramer ever gets. It’s from the speech he made at New York’s gay community center in March 1987, the speech that helped launch ACT UP, the movement that changed not only AIDS awareness but health care and the concept of patients’ rights worldwide.

He said:

“I want to talk to you about power. We are all in awe of power, of those who have it, and we always bemoan the fact that we don’t have it. Power is little pieces of paper on the floor. No one picks them up. Ten people walk by and no one picks up the piece of paper on the floor. The eleventh person walks by and is tired of looking at it, and so he bends down and picks it up. The next day he does the same thing. And soon he’s in charge of picking up the paper. And he’s got a lot of pieces of paper that he’s picked up. Now – think of those pieces of paper as standing for responsibility. This man or woman who is picking up the pieces of paper is, by being responsible, acquiring more and more power. He doesn’t necessarily want it, but he’s tired of seeing the floor littered. All power is the willingness to accept responsibility.”

This idea is at the heart as I know it of community organizing, of leadership, of being a person who wants to leave the world a little better than you found it. It’s a quiet and small gesture to make, especially for a man on the cusp of having an immense amount of power.

This is the caption from the above photo, via Getty: US Democratic presidential candidate Illinois Senator Barack Obama picks up a water bottle cap he dropped after speaking during a rally at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, October 28, 2008.

Power is the willingness to accept responsibility. Leadership is the willingness to accept that power, and the responsibility that comes with it. Leadership is picking up little pieces of paper off the floor while the world watches.

I wrote that on October 28, 2008, the day the above photo was taken. 

I don’t know if Obama’s farewell speech tonight was what I needed or wanted to hear, but it was in so many ways exactly the same point he’s been making all along. 

It’s our fight to take up, our power to use.

Oh my gosh, this is so amazing, I don’t even know what to say! What an honor. Everything you wrote was so kind; I was squealing throughout the entire passage! You seriously just made my day (and kind of the rest of my life, honestly?) You have no idea how much this means to me! Thank you so much!!

I don’t give a fuck. I honestly don’t. Most six year olds blow off insults more easily and more creatively than Tall Joffrey.

It’s an international embarrassment that he’s the President-elect, a national embarrassment that at least once a week we’re talking about his tweeter tantrums to criticism, and an industry embarrassment that Facebook and Twitter didn’t block his accounts three years ago.

“Tall Joffrey”

Yup, that’s gonna stick.

A former Snapchat employee alleges that the company has been faking its growth numbers in order to boost its value in an IPO, according to a lawsuit filed in L.A. Superior Court.

Anthony Pompliano, who was the company’s growth lead, alleges that he was fired after just three weeks with the company because he refused to go along with Snapchat’s plans.
