My friend Jim loves Thailand, and he travels there as frequently as possible. Fortunately for us, he documents many of his adventures with photos and videos, and then he posts them to his blog PHOTOJIMSF!!! Follow the link to see his YouTube footage of Thai guys breakdancing in the streets of Pattaya. I think you will agree: these kids are really great.
Some of the best break dancing I’ve seen in Pattaya, or anywhere. OMG the guy juggling the hat starting at 4:50. Catch up on the chatter at cupofjim.com. from Tumblr
A couple of weeks ago, I went to see the indomitable, unstoppable, incisive comedian Kathy Griffin perform her “Laugh Your Head Off World Tour” show at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC. Boy, was she on point! Driven by the controversy spurred by a satirical photo in which she held up a mask resembling Donald Trump and dripping with ketchup to imitate blood, her show is taking the world by storm.
In fact, the show has been such a resounding success that the Palm Springs Comedy Festival has announced that Kathy Griffin will be named Comedian of the Year this coming November. Even the folks at conservative Breitbart News are excited!
This post about paintings of the biblical Judith beheading Holofernes from Current Affairsmagazine brought Kathy Griffin to mind immediately. Like Griffin’s show, this kind of humor is the perfect mix of art, politics, and fun. Plus, the Current Affairs article gets bonus points for taking on religion, too. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
