It didn’t take long after the triviality statement for Trump to go on a twitter spree where he accused Obama of wiretapping him and also slammed Arnold Schwarzenegger for his performance on The Apprentice.
CAN I SAY SOMETHING ABOUT JOHN’S LITTLE SPEECH?
I’ll say it anyway.
He is asking Sherlock for a miracle and he underlines the fact that Sherlock should do it for him. You just have to read it. He said “For me” and then he repeats it saying “Just for me”. And I think he said that first of all cause he cant live without Sherlock, he just cant live without the only person he is in love like never before and also becaUSE HE THINKS HE IS A GOOD REASON FOR SHERLOCK TO BE ALIVE AND DO A MIRACLE. I mean, John said “just for me” and im absolutely sure he means “just for me, Sherlock. If you cant find a reason to come back do it for me cause im here and i want you back. For me. Cause i need you and i love you. Do it for me. Let me be the reason why you want to live again. Cause you are the reason why im alive. I want to be yours.”
Now I’m crying.
(If someone else just pointed it out before god bless you. I’m just seeing it now and I share it. Cause of the feels. And the heartbreak. And the pain.)
Arizona Sen. John McCain warned against President Donald Trump’s criticism of the media in a recent interview with Meet the Press’ Chuck Todd, saying dictators “get started by suppressing free press.”
In a preview clip of the full interview, which will air on Sunday’s Meet the Press, Todd read a recent tweet in which Trump claimed “The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!” Read more. (2/18/2017 6:33 PM)

Larkin was worried that listeners would realize he stuttered, and his wife Judy suggested that he talk about it directly in his music. Working with dance producers Ingo Kays and Tony Catania, he recorded the first single, “Scatman (Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop)”, a song intended to inspire children who stuttered to overcome adversity.
“Everybody stutters one way or the other So check out my message to you As a matter of fact, I don’t let nothin’ hold you back If the Scatman can do it, so can you…”
“Thank you. Thank you very much. I’d like to thank the Board of Governors of the Academy for giving me this special award. I tried many times to get it but I didn’t make it, so this is indeed very special to me. You don’t get them alone. There were writers, directors, producers; all their kindness to me through the many years. And the people backstage, the remarkable crews that we have the privilege of working with: the electricians, the property men, the stagehands, camera; they’re just marvelous. And my wonderful group, the stunt men and women who taught me so well. I’m grateful to them and I thank them very, very much.”
Scatman John had a brutal speech impediment that ruined his day-to-day interactions and destroyed his self-confidence so badly that he turned to the piano as the only way he could express himself. While others around him knew that he was an accomplished singer and a student of the “scat” style of singing, Scatman John was content to linger in the background of more accomplished singers for the rest of his life… until he was forced to sing when his frontman caught a cold.
Scatman John was terrified that, since he was unable to speak coherently, he would be unable to sing coherently. But, 30 years after he began performing wordlessly in public, he found himself to be a natural and smooth singer. A music producer took note of the Scatman and offered him a deal, but only if he was willing to play along with the modern trends of the time. A strictly classical jazz pianist, Scatman John reluctantly accepted.
He was a natural. Scatman John never believed that he could connect to a generation so much younger than his own, but found himself speechless when he realized that he was standing in front of a crowd of thousands of European teenagers. Even though he only had two hits in Europe and the Americas, he had managed to bridge the gap between his era and the ‘90s and, all the while, preached messages of encouragement to anyone struggling with a disability.
After his star faded, Scatman happily continued his career in Japan. Even when he was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, the Scatman refused to slow down. He knew that, against seemingly impossible odds, he had overcome with flying colors and had seen true beauty.
Although Scatman John was a fad in most of the world, he had managed to incorporate his love of jazz with the newfangled world of techno and, in doing so, gain an appreciation of how the ‘90s youth thought and what music they liked to listen to. He overcame his speech impediment through the power of music after literal decades of obscurity and spread his message of positivity as loud and clear as he could possibly muster, across languages, until his peaceful death.
