Okay, This Is REALLY The Final Season Of Marvel’s “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D” (Trailer)

… on ABC, at least. I am still holding out for a return to the storyline in some fashion on Disney+ or something. Why not? It was supposed to be a wrap last season, but ABC (owned by Disney) brought it back. Let’s keep bringing it back!

Speaking of ‘bringing it back’ … won’t this be like… the FOURTH Coulson we get?? Counting Agent Phil Coulson from the Iron Man, Thor, Avengers, and Captain Marvel movies… who died and came back to life to eventually become the new Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. …only to die and return (sort of, at least in borrowed body form) as single-minded evil alien slayer ‘Sarge’… who bites it… THEN we get a new and improved good ole [Life Model Decoy, or LMD] Phil Coulson (thanks to ancient mysticism and super-futuristic sci-fi tech)… I mean wowwww! That Coulson has gotta be part cat with all those lives, right?

And I was and am still here for ALL of it! Come on Season 7. Hurry up!

DaBaby – “BOP” (Live Performance) [Video]

Okay, I declare an official end to the hate. DaBaby is alright with me… especially after a performance like this. But you make up your own mind. I was clapping at the end of this live “BOP” performance on SNL, but you don’t have to. Turns out, DaBaby’s got his own ‘clapping’ going on in this #WOWZERS #HandstandYAMS

Comedy: SNL Shows How They Get… How They Get To Sesame Street… Being So F***ed Up (Video)

I haven’t seen “Joker” yet, but I am going to. I dunno about this “Grouch” flick though. Mainly because I think I like Dave Chappelle’s take on Sesame Street better (go watch that part from his “Killing Them Softly” stand-up, again, after this, here).

I mean… The Count HAD to be a PIMP; not Snuffaluffagus, who stayed smacked out, cramming that booger sugar up his trunk. In fact, wasn’t Big Bird the only one who could see & talk to Snuff? Yeah, Big Bird was a ‘bird’ alright (just like Reggie Bo is a ‘pound’). HA!
