[1: 2,016 of 10,000] Inspire The Room

I have to give David Chappelle enough credit that in his Netflix special called “Dave Chappelle: The Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. The show gave me quite a number of AHAs that makes me appreciate him more not just as a comedian, not the label of he marrying someone from a Filipino descent, but because he’s a decent human being.

He understood when a room needed an inspiration that people remembers. He shared the words of Toni Morrison to SNL people, “This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There’s no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do languages. This is how civilization heal.” I’m a sucker of great wisdoms and this is resonating to my soul.

He is known to be a seeker of knowledge and speaks with truth in an art form. He was significantly raised by his mother Yvonned Reed etching in his mind that he should be a griot – a person in Africa who was in charged with keeping the stories of the village. And most of all, he was taught my his mother with bravery when she utters these words, “Son, sometimes you have to be a lion so you can be the lamb you really are.”

Dave didn’t start easy, he went through different seasons, and the words of Miles David rang true to who he is, “It took me years to learn how to play like myself.” I also learn from emulating adult, looking up to my chosen role models, and then I have to be out to the world being me because only when I show up authentically that I will feel fulfillment.

In Washington, D.C., 27 October 2019, was the first time it was celebrated as “Dave Chappelle Day” and Dave said, “In the future on Dave Chappelle Day, I ask everyone who wishes to celebrate it, to make one incredible memory for themselves, and/or somebody else.” For a man who’s living with spontaneity, that’s really incredible. His friends can attest that he knows how to make fantastic memories because he lives in the moment.

[1: 1,951 of 10,000] The 70th Emmy Introduced Hannah Gadsby To Me

I didn’t know Hannah Gadsby until I’ve seen the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards when she presented the Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series. It was an under 2 minutes exposure and yet she caught my interest.

There is something about her, I didn’t really like the hosts for the Emmy this year, I thought it wasn’t funny and engaging enough, and then Hannah came out and she was fresh and I am intrigued. I think she’s cute, I love her curves, her delivery and what she smartly delivered. I felt her independence and confidence.

I search more about her until it leads me to watch her Netflix special called Nanette. She is very witty, she was making me laugh, but in between bits there are vulnerable revelations, and by the latter part of the special I was sobbing. I was feeling her pain and I don’t like it that she was overpowered and violated by men.
Hanna Gadsby
She was beaten in public and no one helped her. It was the first thing that shook me. I vow that when I see something wrong in my proximity, I will speak up and act. It’s not right to not protect somebody. Oh God, bless her. Thank you Hannah for your bravery to speak up and share your story. Thank you for showing your anger and inviting us to face the reality.

Unless everybody is fine, no one is fine but this is hard to accomplish over night. I’ll do what I can control, I will better myself to give me comfort that I am making use of my life, and I will always recognize my worth and that no one can intimidate me.

I have been inappropriately touch (swiftly their hands ran my booty) by strangers in a crowd twice in the past and I know that it those moments, I wasn’t fighting back. I let it go to not cause a scene, and now I wonder, should I searched for the predator so they will stop their malicious actions? The last time, it even happened inside a church, and I remembered feeling flustered and wants to burst out to cry. Men are physically stronger than women, that’s the advantage that they have and that makes it easier to take advantage of the weaker ones. I pray that may we use our strengths for goodness.

[1: 1,659 of 10,000] Lighten Up And Find What’s Funny

Don’t take life too seriously! Lighten up and find what’s funny.

I feel better when I laugh. I feel discomfort when I’m intensed and in a fight mode. Between these two opposing emotions, I’d rather be in a comedy than in a drama.

[1: 1,024 of 10,000] 1 ♥ 2 Broke Girls

In Review on May 19, 2013 at 12:00 AM


I like 2 Broke Girls. In a way, I feel like so broke right now that I could relate to them.

I love the cash register at the end of every show but the real winner is their tandem and the comedic relief. I love the whole cast including Han, Sofie, Oleg, and Earl. There is something so real about all of them. It’s so cute that warm background applause comes to life whenever Sofie comes in for the first time for every episode; that’s pretty grand.

RESPECT for the whole show and the team behind it that never fails to make me laugh.
