Lizzie Douglas (June 3, 1897 – August 6, 1973), known as Memphis Minnie, was a blues guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter whose recording career lasted from the 1920s to the 1950s. She recorded around 200 songs, some of the best-known being “Bumble Bee”, “Nothing in Rambling”, and “Me and My Chauffeur Blues”.
This year, Entertainment Weekly named Ryan Reynolds their Entertainer of the Year. But there’s one woman whose contributions to 2016 feel seismic — at the cross section of entertainment and politics that befits this particular year. We’re talking, of course, about Samantha Bee.
We do not live in apolitical times. Every action can be seen as a statement, from Bee’s raging rants to Jimmy Fallon tousling Trump’s hair. (That made Bee mad too.) Late night is not a haven for getting away from the problems of the world. Bee knows this, and she used her show as a soapbox to deliver some of the most powerful, hilarious, cathartic statements about the news this year.
Bee has been sorely under-rewarded for her success, which has been baffling to experience. She regularly dominates next-morning news headlines; her takes after the debates and conventions became essential viewing. There was no one who interacted with the ugliness of 2016 in the way Bee did. If that doesn’t make her the entertainer of the year — helping us smile through the shit — nothing will. Read more
The host of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee shared her Official Trump Thesaurus, which rounds up some of the best burns directed at the guy she once called a “melting hunk of uninformed apricot Jell-O.” Don’t worry, there’s more where that came from.
Feb. 10 - Social Media Shenanigans – Jeff kind of wishes that he didn’t know
Kent and Alexei apparently sext each other through Snapchat pretty regularly. 1.3K
“What the hell are you doing?” Jeff asks, a towel over his head as he
enters the locker room.
Kent doesn’t even look remotely embarrassed as he pulls his shirt down and
pockets his phone. “Sexy snapchatting my boyfriend.”
Alexei Mashkov likes his men blond, shameless, and a little stupid, he
supposes. There’s no helping taste.
He shouldn’t be that surprised when, that night while marathoning Game of
Thrones by himself, he gets a notification that he’s received a snapchat from
Kent. When he opens it, he nearly drops his phone and spills his cup noodles
all over his crotch.
Miss you lots babe, when you coming to
Vegas??? Providence is no fun, the caption says. The Kent in the photo is
lying down on what seems to be super soft blankets, the picture taken from the
up-down to showcase Kent’s exceptional abs all the way down to his low
waistband. He has an actual finger in his mouth, like he’s trying to play coy. It’s
clearly sent to the wrong person.
