Favorite Things Friday

Hello, all. Welcome to my brand-new segment, Favorite Things Friday, in which I will share with you some of the funny/interesting/just plain cool things I've come across during the week.

(Full disclosure: I may forget all about this segment and never revisit it ever again. There's precedent.)

First up is this graphic sent to me by a fellow writer friend:



I can totally relate to this.

Next up, is a segment from Last Week Tonight, featuring John Oliver. It's twenty-one minutes long, so if you don't have time to watch it right now, make a note for later. Because it's all the things.




Finally, today, I'm sharing this video from Jimmy Kimmel's latest After The Oscars special. I may be one of the few people who aren't really all that excited for the Batman Vs. Superman movie coming out this month, but this segment made me laugh. The first three minutes is the over-long and not-entirely funny introduction to the video, but after that, I found it very funny.




And that's all from me today. Be sure to tune in on Monday for my latest book review post.

Have a great weekend, all.

  1. You can stick with it! I wish I stayed up late enough to watch all the good shows like Oliver's. I'm lucky if I can make it past ten these days. Have a wonderful weekend too. :)

    1. I sadly don't have HBO right now (and won't until Game of Thrones starts up again) so I'm relegated to watching John Oliver clips on YouTube, but I love to watch his show when I have the opportunity.

      And I usually awake (insomniac, after all) I usually don't watch any late night talk shows, but I just happened to be in front of the TV for Kimmel the other night. A happy accident.

  2. I like when people do these Thankful for the Small Things/Favorites of the Week type posts. It's a nice way to end the week, head into the weekend.

    I'll definitely check out the John Oliver clip later.

    1. Oh, you should. I've watched it a few times now, and I cheer every time. :)

  3. And Kimmel was never heard from again! Funny. And no one cares about Lego Batman.

    1. Ask your kids if they care. Of course, my kids are dogs, so no, they don't. :)

  4. Nope, you're not alone. I don't care about Batman vs Superman either. If there is never another comic book movie, I wouldn't care.

    1. The only thing/character in Batman Vs Superman I'm remotely interested in is Wonder Woman. But I don't know if it's enough for me to ever watch the movie.

      And Joss Whedon made me like the Avengers films, so I want to see the new Captain America movie when it comes out in May, and if there's ever a Black Widow movie, I will be first in line, but I guess I'm just a Marvel girl. :)

  5. I already loved John Oliver but this put him into the stratosphere. I wanted to give him a standing ovation.
    This is a fun idea for a post topic!

    1. I hope the studio audience did give him a standing ovation, because he certainly deserved one.

  6. Personally, I don't understand why everyone keeps lambasting ol' Drumpfy. Just because his idea of the truth (i.e. whatever comes out of his mouth) is different from everyone else's idea of the truth (i.e. the truth), that's no reason to vilify him. After all, he's a human being with feelings of his own.*

    *Note: Not a single word of that last sentence is true.

  7. There's precedent, lol. And I'm not really excited about Batman Vs. Superman either. I'd probably be a lot more excited about a Wonder Woman movie.

    1. There have been many a segment on this blog that has gone by the wayside.

      I'd be more excited about a Wonder Woman movie, too.

  8. I occasionally get to watch Oliver. My dad likes to record him on the DVR, and he'll put him on when I'm over visiting. We had fun with the whole creating a religion thing.

    Yeah, I'm so over Batman. And Superman. Don't care about a movie with both of them.

    1. Before I moved, my brother and sister-in-law did the same thing for me. Every time I went for a visit, there were saved episodes of Last Week Tonight waiting for me.

  9. I'm not excited for the Batman Vs. Superman movie, either. Then again, I'm that oddball who grew up reading Archie instead of DC or Marvel, so I'm not really part of their demographic, haha.

    Hope your weekend is going well! :)

    1. I heard they're doing an Archie TV show on one of the networks. Are you looking forward to that?

      Delete
    2. Hahahahaha no. I could snark about how bad that show is going to be for hours. It seems to be catering to non-Archie fans, tbh.

  10. It's a great idea for a feature.

    I'm not all that thrilled by the Batman Vs Superman movie either. I tend not to like the idea of a Vs movie in general.

    1. Yeah, the Vs movies don't do anything for me. There was one of those crappy made-for-tv movies on the SyFy channel a few years back (before Sharknado) that was, like, "Mega Python Vs Gatoroid" or something. My friend and I made a drinking game out of it, so that was the only reason that was fun.

  11. I'm not at all excited for Batman v. Superman either. I mean, I'm going to see it, but I'm not excited about it. I do adore Jimmy Kimmel, though, so I'm excited to see this video!

    1. The video made me laugh so hard, I've actually watched it a few times now. :)
