As this session comes to a close, SCOTUS (Supreme Court of The United States) handed down two of the three most controversial decisions of the term.
When asked why the Supreme Court waits until the last minute? Experts seem to say – its so that they can get the cases ready. But I disagree. It’s cause they know the fall out will be huge and it’s best to be out of town when it happens.
In today’s “is this believable”, I spotlight a provocative documentary movie I just read about called, Tickled. It has the chills and thrills of Psycho minus the murdering, plus the homophobic twists.
The movie begins with New Zealand journalist David Farrier, a fan of the bizarre and absurd, hunting for a new story when he stumbles on a sport called competitive tickling.
Intrigued, he makes contact with a company in the US called Jane O’Brien Media which every month has an event called competitive endurance tickling. The sport is for young athletic men who submit to being strapped (that should send bells going off in your head), straddled by other young men, then tickled all while being video taped.
Prince Be from the soulful funky rap group P.M. Dawn died Friday of kidney disease at the tender age of 46 according to USAToday. Prince Be was born Attrell Cordes and started PM Dawn in high school but was rejected by most labels for sounding too much like De La Soul or not enough like gangsta rappers NWA.
