Trib Updates

This is a weekly series that will include a brief summary of the latest articles that have been published on The Tribulation Times Herald-Exhorter.  Hopefully, this will encourage you to go check out some truly outstanding articles that have been published by a number of truly outstanding authors.  Moreover, I hope this will also encourage you to want to become a contributing member/author, as well.  The “Hear Ye!  Hear Ye!” site explanation near the top of the side-bar should answer many of your questions.  Yes, this series also included an “SOS! (Spam On Saturdays)”  segment before, but it just wasn’t working for me.  Therefore, that will be replaced by a republishing of one of the Trib articles.

[Most Disturbing] contains what I consider to be a most disturbing ad for the new TNT smart phone app.

[“Where No One Has Gone Before” and Musings on the Next Generation of Star Trek] contains some observations from Lavender Darwin, and you can probably guess where that’s going.

[Mr. Darwin Meets Mr. Common Sense] has Lavender attempting to make George Lucas jealous of his movie producing skills.

[Hitler and…the University of Phoenix?] has Lavender providing us with a fairly entertaining movie clip.

[Shaun(a) White Gum!] has Lavender displaying a sense-of-humor that no one should ever see while sober.

[A Tale of Two Tonys] has me anguishing over the future of my beloved Dallas Cowboys.

[There is nothing in the world worse than…] has Lavender providing more devastating ramifications to having a vasectomy.

[‘Anonymous’ Movie] contains a clip and some poignant commentary from Lavender about the movie.

[Steve Taylor – Meat The Press] contains the video to one of Lavender’s favorite tunes.

[Steve Jobs, Billboards, Beatles, Yoko, Beer, Smoking and C.S. Lewis] is from Lavender about Steve Jobs, billboards, The Beatles, Yoko Ono, smoking and C.S. Lewis.

[More on Steve Jobs and Yoko] is from Lavender, and contains a video clip from In Living Color.

[Raising a Family Becoming Too Expensive?] contains a video clip of an interview conducted on Fox Business, along with some commentary from Lavender.

[Viagra Safety Videos or Propaganda?] has Lavender complaining about there not being given enough information in the ads that are now showing up when he goes to watch a Shaun White Video on YouTube.

[Fred Phelps, Westboro Baptist and Vasectomies!] has Lavender musing about a few of his favorite things.

First of all, I would like to make it absolutely clear that my wife and I are both HUGE fans of [Mike & Molly].  Mike is played to the hilt by [Billy Gardell], and [Melissa McCarthy] more than holds her own playing Molly.

I’m not quite sure if it is the chicken or the egg, but since we were already familiar with Melissa from Mike & Molly, I am going to go with it being on account of her success on that show that secured her place on [Bridesmaids].  Yes, I well aware of the fact that movies are often completed years before their actual release, but this is my story, which I am sticking to.

Anyway, my wife still wants to see Bridesmaids in the worst possible way, but after hearing it described as [The Hangover] for chicks, I am having some reservations.  After seeing Melissa on [SNL] last Saturday, my wife is starting to have some of the same reservations.

Link: [On NBC]

Yeah, I know that gross-out humor rules the roost these days, but that doesn’t make it funny.  Be assured that Melissa was playing anti-Molly there, and I suspect that she was also playing her in Bridesmaids.  Oh, how I hope Melissa wasn’t just being herself.

My wife and I have also been HUGE fans of [Andy Rooney] on [60 Minutes] over the years.  For we thought that he was just employing a very dry sense-of-humor to moan and groan about things that make a lot of us moan and groan about, but after watching that parting interview, it would seem that he is really not a very nice man at all.

Hence, the dangers of overexposure.  For my wife and I now have very different opinions about both Melissa McCarthy and Andy Rooney, which we wouldn’t have had if they had of just stayed with the “less is more” rule.

  1. The TNT ad is most disturbing in that it correctly portrays a majority of modern phone users.

  2. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Gorges!!! Well, what I found the most disturbing was that sweet little puppy getting eaten by whatever that was towards the end of the ad, but you are certainly right about your point.

  3. there are a lot of things on tv these days that some would consider funny. I would disagree. As for Andy Rooney, I never liked the guy.

  4. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!! I liked him a lot better before coming to understand that he was not pretending to be an awful old man.

  5. That goofy Lavender guy has got a strange obsession with vasectomies, hasn't he?

  6. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Lavender!!! Yes, he most certainly does.
