Stephen Colbert, Elizabeth Warren, CBSSet your DVRs and enjoy the show. I guarantee this will be far more interesting than anything you will see on those 24-hour news networks tonight.

The RNC is like christmas in july Stephen ColbertEarlier this week Stephen Colbert opened his show with this Broadway-inspired number, “The Republican National Convention is Like Christmas in July.”

It injects a lot of humor in a little more than 3 minutes and sums up how I feel so I thought I’d share it with you in case you missed it.

Chardonnay Go

Pokemon, Pokemon GoIf you are 30 or younger, chances are you and all of your friends have downloaded the popular game, “Pokemon Go”. According to papers that are covering the craze, it now has more downloads than the popular dating site Tinder, has surpassed Twitter in daily active users on Android devices and ranks above Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram in the Google Play store.

As a 40-something, I have no fond memories of Pokemon nor am I much of a gamer so I’ve not felt the pull of the craze gripping the nation. That is until I heard about this brilliant spoof video of Pokemon Go called Chardonnay Go, created by (and apparently for) white suburban housewives.  Too funny.

Wicked funny: Zachary Quinto performs Missy Elliott’s “Get Ur Freak On”

I admit that I’m a Zachary Quinto fan and I’m a Missy Elliot fan so there was no way I wasn’t going to post this video of Quinto putting it on the line in his lip sync battle where he performs “Get Ur Freak On”. I hope it brings a smile to your face as well.

Have a great Saturday night
