comedy chat – “real actors read”

Third in a series of my favorite YouTube snark, today we visit with the geniuses at “Real Actors Read”, aka “Gottakidtofeed”.

The basic premise is that real actors read things such as Yelp reviews, missed connections ads, Netflix reviews, and such. But, of course, they emote as only actors can. All of which makes for a few minutes of hilarity and stress release.

Missed Connections #8

Christian Forums, #3

Enjoy, and laugh: it’ll piss off a Tea Party Freedom Trucker.

      Yes he should! But I bet when he gets frustrated, someone reminds him that he is soooo much smarter than all of them. Then he goes out there and proves it!

    Death Cab for Cutie guitarist Chris Walla on why he’s gotten involved

    “The effort to derail, defund and discredit the ACA (‘ObamaCare’) is ridiculous and insulting. The law serves to help all Americans more easily access affordable, reliable health insurance, even those who were previously shut out of private insurance because of a pre-existing condition. These objective basics of the law are rarely front-page news. Healthcare.gov does a great job of detailing out the most important features.”

    “As for the Republican efforts to defeat this law, I’d like to recommend any of the time-tested, American-as-apple-pie methods of repealing a law,” Walla said. “There are many. Like, say, winning an election and repealing a law through legislation which can be enacted by the executive branch. I can also recommend the judicial branch as a place to sort through grievances and contests of law. Our three branches of government provide ample checks and balances, in a sound framework, for any party wishing to engage them.”

    Okay, back to work. Can you believe these people except me to work with that gorgeous day outside just calling me, taunting me…[“get off the compyewter… come out and play, girl!!!]? Huh, huh, who can concentrate? Not me!

    Everyone enjoy the rest of your Friday afternoon! I’m putting my chains back on for another couple of hours. 😦

    Will be back late night if I don’t fall unconscious from exhaustion and fun deprivation.

    Do you guys think House GOPs gave any thought to actually also impact the unemployment numbers, or is this collateral damage?

    //…………………..

    In D.C. and Maryland alone, 24,000 furloughed workers have applied for unemployment benefits. Food banks across the country are seeing an uptick in clients. And it could get worse: If the shutdown were to go on until the end of October, states would likely have to cut aid to the poor, including food stamps.

    “I’m very frustrated with the government, I think that it’s unfair, it’s interrupting people’s livelihoods,” Carroll says. “I don’t understand how human beings can have so much power, it amazes me.”

    When the government shutdown ends, and Carroll gets back to work, she says she plans to donate back to Nourish Now.

    • October 11, 2013 at 4:51 pm

      No, I don’t think the GOP thought about the impact because they didn’t think the President would call their bluff nor that the Democrats would remain united.

      So instead, they are trying to spin a storyline that the impact is not significant. Of course, that’s hard to do when people are living the impact of this shutdown.

        Well, I cannot think of one thing the Repubs have planned PROPERLY since I’ve started paying attention to politics. It seriously boggles the mind that they have so many people who actually think they are worth voting for. Simply listening to them speak on, or to, an issue is grating .

  32. October 11, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    Why is it hard to understand that budget negotiations will begin once the government has been re-opened AND the threat of default (which means for more than 6 weeks)? The usual suspects in the WHPC are trying so hard to get Jay to say that the talks taking place amount to “negotiations” so that they can say that the President has caved.

      The GOP doesn’t want budget negotiations – they’ve knocked them back for 6 months. They have no idea what they want – other than to hurt President Obama – strange how some plans backfire.

    How many more fake plans is Boehner going to present and get whacked down? What about “NOOO until a clean resolution” does he not get? However, from what I read, I’m wondering if Boehner has any clout left in his own caucus.

    love me some sam wang!!

    ‘ Andrew Sullivan has collected some commentary that argues against my suggestion that the House could potentially flip in 2014. There were some good points made. However, it should be noted that some of these analysts’ comments have been OBE (Overtaken By Events) – the shutdown.
    ~
    All of the arguments on this subject can and should be quantified. It’s just like last year’s Presidential race: is any of this punditry data-based? Today I start to outline a true prediction.
    ~
    Provisionally, it looks like the following: In a little over a week, the shutdown has increased the probability of a Democratic House takeover in 2014 from 13% to as high as 50%. ‘

      Nothing like numbers to wipe out pundits predictions and if someone is arguing against Sullivan – we are best friends forever.

    A poll released Thursday brought historically bad numbers for Republicans, but it also marked the return of a conservative faction largely unseen since the 2012 campaign.

    The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found an all-time low approval rating for the GOP, but some on the right have sought to “unskew” the numbers.

    I read page 1 and stopped because I’m not really interested in Gov. Christie, but others might be……

    The Quashing of a Case Against a Christie Ally
    //….

    When the charges became public, the indicted undersheriff, Michael Russo, shrugged it off. Governor Christie, he assured an aide, would “have this whole thing thrown out,” according to The Hunterdon County Democrat. That sounded like bluster. Then the state killed the case.

    On the day the indictment was unsealed, the state attorney general, a Christie appointee, took over the Hunterdon prosecutor’s office. Within a few months, three of its most respected veterans lost their jobs there, including the one who led the case.
