Is ‘Key and Peele”s New Gay Marriage Sketch an Interrogation of Identity Assumptions or a Big “No Homo?”

Samuel:

On point right here.

As Comedy Central readies for the July 8 premiere of Key and Peele‘s new season, the network has released a very topical sketch: Keegan-Michael Key plays a Michigan congressman who’s emphasizing how he cares about everyone during a town hall meeting that’s being recorded and broadcast by C-SPAN — whether they’re young, old, Asian, Hispanic, straight or gay.

Attending the Warriors parade was an amazing experience for me

Samuel:

WARRIORS PARADE BABY!!!

Originally posted on But at the end of the day...:

The Warriors winning the championship was a dream come true to me and naturally I had to find a way to the parade. I knew that it was going to be hard to get up to the Bay from LA but I figured it out. I would take a midnight bus from LA up to Oakland. I arrived at the West Oakland BART station at 6:20 in the morning and took a one station stop to Lake Merritt.

Walking to the rally location was quite an adventure. There were people camping their spots at least a few hours before I even got there and trying to find my friends was really difficult. But once I got to a nice spot on the grass with the lake right behind me, it was a great view of the stage.

The Warriors’ championship run taught me the beautiful lesson of patience

Samuel:

OVERYJOYED!!

Originally posted on But at the end of the day...:

Patience is hard to come by when you’re a fan of a franchise that has struggled to reach the top for 40 years. It’s hard to believe that something good can happen when everything wrong has happened. I didn’t think that the enduring pain of seeing the Warriors falter for so many years would go away.

Yet tonight, all that pain and suffering was washed away. Just like that.

Being a Warriors fan wasn’t easy growing up. I was in first grade when I mimicked my first basketball player. That was Chris Mullin. I thought the Warriors were the best. But in the following years, we would see bad trades, bad coaches and bad play. Yet I stuck with them. I didn’t know any better. But I knew that they were the team I fell in love with first and I would stick with them. They were my home team…

Warriors to the NBA Finals is all the gravy

As I think back to last night, I realized that I didn’t cry. I could have cried. I should have cried.

It was that 5-year old kid at St. Joseph’s Elementary school making his first basket on the playground, thinking back to the Warriors he saw on TV.

It’s that kid who was so excited about the Antawn Jamison draft pick that he drew Jamison’s new Warriors jersey and taped it on his wall.

It was that little boy who thought that the head coaching changes were decent and that the 1999 team was on to good things.

Pretty Little Liars Season 6 Promo: Charles’ Twisted Game Turns Deadly

Samuel:

I am excited only because I don’t know why I continue to watch this. LOL.

Originally posted on TVLine:

It’s appropriate that the Season 6 premiere of ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars (June 2, 8/7c) is titled “Game on, Charles” because, as you’ll see in TVLine’s exclusive first look at the promo, the newly revealed “A” has only begun to play.

And because this alleges to be the “summer of answers,” allow me to pose a few questions for you to consider while you obsessively re-watch the 30-second teaser all weekend (unless that’s just me):

0:03 — How did Mona get separated from the herd?
0:10 — Is she “M”? If so, how is she sending the girls’ messages from wherever Charles is keeping her?
0:12 — Who is Toby pointing that thing at?
0:19 — What inspired the return of Aria’s pink hair?
0:15 — Is that pizza or vomit?
0:22 — If…

Warriors basketball: A passion that never goes away

Samuel:

A story of my journey as a Warriors fan. Great read.

Originally posted on But at the end of the day...:

Been a Warriors fan through these three eras.

A trip down memory lane for me as a Warriors fan. 

I remember I was in first grade and I saw the Warriors on TV. I didn’t know much about basketball, I just liked it. I would try to imitate what I saw on TV to the playground. I even remember the first ever basket I made on the playground I thought that I could one day match what the Warriors did. It was so easy to be impressed by this Warriors team. Little did I know that they were embarking on a playoff drought. But they were the first team I watched. The first team I followed. I fell in love with basketball because of them. And I never left.

It’s not easy being a Warriors fan. As I grew older, my frustrations would grow more and more with the team…

21-day fast and prayer testimonies

Samuel:

For 21 days I fasted and spent my time praying. What happened? Check out my story and four other friends who did the same thing. God did some great things!

Originally posted on Love God, Love People, Change the World:

FastingLast week, we as a church concluded a 21-day fasting period. During the fast, each person spent time in prayer daily to focus on God and to deepen the relationship. The purpose of the fast was to cut out distractions from our lives such as social media or junk food and in its place spent time to draw strength from God. Along with prayer, it opened up an avenue for us to connect with our Lord and it enhanced that relationship.

Before Jesus began His ministry, he spent 40 days in fasting and in prayer. He wanted to connect with His Father. Despite the devil’s attempts to tempt Jesus away from his fast, Jesus resisted because His relationship with God was strong. Jesus depended on God for strength, not the temptations and distractions from the devil.

Several members of our church experienced great change in their lives during the three weeks of fasting…
