I'm a high school English and French teacher who trains in the martial arts and works towards continuous self-improvement.
'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 5' Cast Announced, But Whose Race Is It?
"All Stars, start your engines - and may the best woman win!" These now-immortal words from #RuPaulsDragRaceAllStars host RuPaul Charles are about to be uttered once again, thanks to the rapidly-approaching premiere of #AllStars5 coming up on June 5, 2020.
Has Bryan Adams Gone Batty?
As Canadians, we are generally believed to be unfailingly polite, and our good humor and manners are often the stuff of both jokes and legend. That may have now changed thanks to Canadian icon #BryanAdams, who was to have begun a three-night stint at London, England's #RoyalAlbertHall on May 11, 2020.
Wishing Jerry Stiller 'Serenity Now!'
The only reason I ever really watched #Seinfeld was because of George's dad, played by the inimitable #JerryStiller. Stiller, who passed away May 11, 2020 at the age of 92 of natural causes, was an onscreen grouch whom everyone knew. Everyone knows the guy who gets worked up over everything, or who yells about just about any subject just because he can. When he first started appearing on Seinfeld as George's dad, I was at first a bit shocked; it was the first time I'd ever seen a character like that on television. There was something loveable about the guy, though - something about him irritated you but he was somehow inherently loveable all at once, and he was incredibly entertaining.
Rock 'N' Roll Legend Little Richard Dead At 87
#LittleRichard, the man behind such hits as "Good Golly, Miss Molly!" and "Long Tall Sally," has died at the age of 87. He was perhaps the pioneer behind the androgynous rock star image later popularized by the likes of David Bowie and Prince, frequently coming out in impressive pompadour hairstyles, clothes that glittered under the spotlight, and wearing colors that were a significant departure for other rockers of his generation. Gone were the muted tones that many of Little Richard's contemporaries wore; when Little Richard came on stage, he was wearing androgynous makeup (usually some sort of eyeliner, at the very least), and he would be wearing clothes that, if not brightly colored, were festooned in crystals or sequins. In later years, he would hit the stage in shoes with a slight heel, shoulder length curls and the same bright colors.
Roy Horn of Siegfried & Roy Dies From COVID-19 Complications
Back in the late 1990s and early 2000s, if you heard the names Siegfried and Roy, it was with a mixture of awe and admiration. The two were among the biggest magicians and illusionists in Las Vegas, and their shows were made even more impressive with their impressive array of big cats.
Stephanie Beatriz, I Love You!
I realize that I'm several seasons late to the Brooklyn Nine-Nine party, but forgive me. I only loosely followed the show previously because, quite frankly, I didn't have the time between teaching high school full time and raising two daughters.
'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 12 Struggles With Editing
The one thing I've always liked about RuPaul's Drag Race is the way the show illustrates the relationships between the contestants and the contestants and the judges. You can learn a lot about the struggles and triumphs these drag queens have to cope with just in a short hour-long show, and my daughters and I have been along for the ride over the course of 12 seasons.
Everyday Heroes: A Nurse And A Pharmacist Walk Into Work
I grew up surrounded by nurses and, come to think about it, there were a few pharmacists I came to know growing up as well. It was very much a part of my world to see my mother, who was a palliative care nurse, getting ready to see clients, or writing reports, or going to see pharmacists about things that her clients might have needed.
