Twenty Questions: October 26, 2010

1.) Kanye just released the epic video for "Runaway." And I do mean, EPIC. So have you actually been able to sit through the ENTIRE thing straight?

2.) Do you think it's fair convicted rapist Mike Tyson was allowed to star in "The Hangover", but cast and crew shot down not-convicted but probably should be committed actor Mel Gibson's cameo in the sequel?

3.) Okay, so "The Simpsons" are not Catholic. But what the heck is a "Presbylutheran"? Not to be nitpicky, but Presbyterians are Calvinists while Lutherans are of the Arminian strain. Which means they are not close to being the same.

4.) You do know that last question was NOT referring to Armenian like the Kardashians, right?

5.) Isn't it crazy Michael Jackson made more money in the last year than any celebrity- dead or alive?

6.) So in France,there is a ban on the burka. But do you know in one Italian town, there might be a ban on miniskirts?

7.) Because the Moon is sooo 20th century, China is making plans to get to Mars. But do you believe they'll make their target date of 2013?

8.) Who do you think hit the one billion mark for views on YouTube first- Justin Beiber or Lady Gaga?

9. Do you think that last question is a sign of the coming Apocalypse?

10.) Are you mourning the loss of the Psychic Soccer Octopus?

11.) Do you think NPR was right to give Juan Williams the heave-ho for his comments about feeling nervous when seeing people in Muslim garb on planes?

12.) Does Juan know the 9-11 Terrorists weren't rocking Muslim garb when they hijacked those planes? Terrorists can shop at Target, too.

13.) Hey Fellows! Are you surprised women are more charitable than you? I'm not. :-)

14.) "It's the end of the world as we know it!" Or, maybe not, despite the ever popularity of Gaga and Beiber. Looks like those Mayan Calendar/End of the World calculations might just be off. Surprised?

15.) Is Charlie Sheen literally becoming his "Two & A Half Men" character? And if so, where is Alan to come help?

16.) Should I be offended as a life long Jersey girl that millions of people are going to go "Jersey" for Halloween this year?

17.) Do you think that last question is a sign of the coming Apocalypse? Or just the dumbing down of America?

18.) For all you non-Jerseyans reading this, do you REALLY think this is how we dress? Really?

19.) Okay, so I get between 80 and 120 hits on average on this site. Why is it that only Don, Alan, Yazzy, April, Gary and Carlos really comment?

20.) Are the rest of you reaaaaaaalllllly shy? Because I'd like to hear from you. Also thanks to Erin aka "The Red Cardigan", Joe and K, since I see you all, too. <3

Wow @ Kanye's video....that was the longest and weirdst music video I have ever seen! I give him thumbs up for having a very vivid imagination....but dang what happened to this man? Anywho Good Post Lili

Alisha De Freitas said...

Thanks, Girl. Of course I'll mention you! Be forewarned, my friends eventually become part of this blog, lol.

Yeah, Kanye's video was extremely... interesting. But I couldn't sit through it. Over a half hour? And I thought MJ went long!

Carlos said...

Women are more charitable then men. Funny thing is that some are being charitable with the "fellows" money lol. Cant lie that's a good way to bolster the numbers in females favor and make us look cheap all at the same time.

Alisha De Freitas said...

@Carlos, true, but why aren't more guys writing those checks to charity for themselves? No one is forcing them to give their chicks cash. Hmm... then again...

Alan said...

Lol, well its just like in most aspects of life, people want to get the good stuff for free without contributing to it. I hope that doesn't discourage you, your blogs are great, please keep writing!

Alisha De Freitas said...

And that is why, Alan, you get a shout out, my friend. :-)

Don said...

1. I loved Runaway, its imagery, music, underlying meaning. Genuis short film. I've watched it maybe 5 times, already.

2. Good point. It's all political.

19. I believe some readers would rather read and not necessarily offer comment. This appears to be the growing sentiment. Every now and then I will write a bait post just to see who is exactly reading the blog. For the most part, it works. I love your blog, your writing, understanding, sense of humor.

"Beliebers" will assure that Justin hits a billion marks first. Children have a tendency to repeatedly watch musical videos, even moreso than adults.

Hilarious @ this being asked twice. I feel you though. @ Do you think that last question is a sign of the coming Apocalypse?

Alisha De Freitas said...

@Don For 1.)and Beliebers (Ahh, they have a name for them???)... Gaga beat Beiber. Does that mean Gaga has a gaggle of tween fans? Or maybe, like you for "Runaway", there are a whole lot of Grown Folks on YouTube clicking "Play" again and again and again. Guess it's not such a "Bad Romance".

Don said...

Ahhh. Brilliant word play!
