Fierce Felines

Two members of Pussy Riot are in an episode of the third season of House of Cards! And they have some deliciously vicarious dialogue.
And a new Pussy Riot song, “Don’t Cry Genocide,” plays during the ending credits.

More Johns Than Women

Who are CEOs of large companies, that is. Frankly, we’re not surprised.

Chris Rock, Why He’s Brilliant

His critique of racism in the U.S. is so on point, as are other comments he makes in this interview:

ferguson_right_now_highlights_from_frank_richs_big_chris_rock_interview_in_ny_mag/

Unfortunately, I’ve always had trouble with the way Chris Rock talks about women. There’s only one reference to his attitude toward women in the article. “Unsparring” is the word they use.

You can’t always get what you want, but sometimes… sometimes you get something close. http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/11/10/duke-doubt

We’ll see how he does with his new film, Top Five, the cast of which includes comedian Leslie Jones. She’s another stand-up to watch for!
