May Favorites: Covfefe & #BowWowChallenge

Let’s not even get into how late this Monthly Favorites post is.

May 2017 was a month of laughs. Oh. Em. Gee. I don’t think I’ve had this much fun with pop culture news in a while. We got some awesome music videos during the month of May as well.

Let’s get to it:

Favorite News Articles

1. Donald Trump’s “Covfefe.” The tweet read round the world?

2. Jaden Smith’s hair as an accessory. When it comes to the MET Gala 2017, anything goes.

3. When a pineapple becomes modern art. Simply brilliant.

4. This couple went to prom dressed like the Obamas. YAAASSS.

Favorite Music

1. “Passionfruit” (A R I Z O N A Cover).  I might actually go as far to say I like this version better than Drake’s!

Gallery Mondays: The White House

I had the honor of visiting Washington, D.C. during the 4th of July weekend in 2016—a time when President Obama still had months left of his second term, and everyone was still grappling with the fact that Donald Trump would be on the ballot come November.

Now that we’re days away from the inauguration, Obama and his family are probably packing up boxes of stuff and getting ready to head out of the White House this week.

I’m really going to miss him. Obama was a unique president in every way. However, I’ve come to realize that it’s time to start coming to terms with the fact that Donald Trump is getting sworn into office on Friday.

Thankfully, I’ll be at work during the ceremony, so I won’t have to watch it. I know many are planning to boycott channels showing live coverage the ceremony as well.

The next four years are going to be a wild ride. We have to remember that whatever happens, Trump cannot define us as Americans. He may be the face of our nation for the next four years, but he doesn’t have any power over our individual reputations.

Stay strong. Fight for what you believe in. Politics are always going to be a dirty game, but when we come together, there’s nothing we can’t do to bring about change.

Enjoy this model of the White House I saw last year at the White House Visitor Center.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and God bless America.

 

Fan Art Fridays: Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp is the latest actor to portray none other than Donald Dump  Trump in a biopic/parody.

The actor’s role as Donald Trump on Funny or Die is based on the 2016 presidential candidate’s book The Art of the Deal. I couldn’t handle how accurately Johnny Depp portrayed Trump, from the hair to the voice, all the way down to the antics.

I honestly wonder if there’s anyone that can’t imitate Trump…

Anyway, this led to my decision to feature Johnny Depp for this week’s Fan Art Fridays. This one was created by Singhooi Lim who has also made fan art of other celebs like Jackie Chan and Michael Jackson.

Is it just me, or does Johnny’s hair not look as if there weren’t a strand out of place?

View the original fan art here and enjoy the Funny or Die’s The Art of the Deal trailer below.
