Best of

[In response to those who say slavery was a long time ago, you need to get over it, etc] This is what I say to those people, ‘To argue that is to say effects don’t matter. To say that effects don’t compound. Everything that happens in the world has an effect. […] So if you have a system that promotes your well-being, you are going to grow in that world. So if your great grandfather could have some money, a house, and a piece of land, and then his child and then his child, […] it’s going to get to you in some shape or form. Even if it is just in the way of knowledge. Knowing how to own a place, knowing how to get credit, knowing how to live in a different world, these are benefits that you have.’ So when you say […] ‘Well I started from nothing.’ I’m like, ‘No, but you didn’t start from nothing though. That’s the thing you don’t understand. You started from nothing in your world, but it’s not nothing, nothing.’

“Anything you practice you’ll get good at. Including BS.”

I believe we should treat racism like a disease and not as a choice. I believe racism is heredity, it is passed down generation to generation just like alcoholism. […] The problem I have is, when you shun racist, when you cut them out of society, where do they go to? […] If you look at it, as a disease, if you have somebody who has this disease of racism you would treat them as someone else who has a disease. So if I go ‘Hey Charlemagne, you friends with that racist girl Tomi?’ Now people feel the need [to be defensive] because now it is inferred that because you are friends with a racist, you are now racist or you are complacent to their racism. But if I said that about someone in your family who was an alcoholic, I say ‘Yo, you are friends with an alcoholic?’ You’d be like ‘Yeah, I’m trying to help them. This person has a problem and I think I can be a positive influence on their life.’

We live in a post-fact world. Everyone can make their own facts. You go on the internet, you can find anything that backs up your facts, you can find graphs that believe what you believe in, like everything.
— “Trevor Noah – 12/7/2016.” The Breakfast Club Power 105.1 FM


[On Nelson Mandela effort in trying to prevent oppression in South Africa] If that was the surgery, we didn’t succeed in the rehab.
— “Trevor Noah – 12/7/2016.” The Breakfast Club Power 105.1 FM


I see life like a video game. I don’t know all the moves. I know the moves that I know, I know which moves of mine work so I’m gonna do those moves. Sometimes I’m gonna meet someone who teaches me a new move, I’m gonna use that move in the game and sometimes when you’re playing, I’m gonna be like ‘Hey man, I don’t know if this will work for you, but whenever I’m up against this boss I use this move.’ I’m not telling you how to do it, I’m just telling you this has worked for me in my world.
— “Trevor Noah – 12/7/2016.” The Breakfast Club Power 105.1 FM


What does it mean to be lonely? How do we live, if we’re not intimately engaged with another human being? How do we connect with other people, particularly if we don’t find speaking easy? Is sex a cure for loneliness, and if it is, what happens if our body or sexuality is considered deviant or damaged, if we are ill or unblessed with beauty? And is technology helping with these things? Does it draw us closer together, or trap us behind screens?
— “The Lonely City.” The Lonely City – Pages 5


Don’t make me hate you. Loving you is painful enough.
— “Season 1/ Episode 2.” Fleabag

Overview

There is a certain beauty to revealing yourself and your intentions. However, as shown in this episode, there are often consequences for doing so.

Review (with Spoilers)

If I was to be perfectly honest, I couldn’t tell you what is driving me to keep up with this show. There is a lack of urgency, villains, and any sort of mystery, so I almost feel it is loyalty at this point. That and perhaps hope that whatever hook there was a year ago could return. Until then, let’s keep on keeping on and speak on episode 4.

Overview

Autonomy is a major focus on this episode of humans as Niska continues to and get human rights, Mia is questioning her place in Leo’s grounp, and Dr. Athena reveals some parts to herself. Parts which drive what she is living for.

Review (with Spoilers)

I must admit, a Sunday night seems like the worse night for me to review anything. On top of the fact my thoughts are mostly focused on what I’m going to do, or need to do, in the coming week, I’m generally easily distracted. Which while watching a show like Humans makes things difficult for Humans isn’t strongly for the dramatics. It takes things slow and steady and even as it reveals things there isn’t a DUN DUN DUN or shock to it. You’ve been led to this realization for a while now and the show is just providing confirmation. With that said, let’s talk about episode 3.

Humans: Season 2/ Episode 2 – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

Last updated on July 22nd, 2018 at 06:25 pm

Overview

As many of the synths pursue normalcy, if not safety, the humans remain flustered with not only the effect they have on their lives but trying to understand them.

Review (with Spoilers)

Being that it has been so long, I can’t say if the first season of Humans was overly exciting or not. What I do know is that episode 2 has left me in a rather dull state. Not to the point of questioning if I’ll continue the season or not, but I must admit I don’t feel like there is much to be excited about. Similar to Westworld you know there are very few roads the show can go and with that goes some of the excitement. Especially since the secret is out. Yet the characters, while none really a standout, the ensemble does make for a likable cast you want the best for. Perhaps being the main, if not sole, reason for continued loyalty. With all that said, let’s speak on episode 2.
