If you guys ever uncover any major company conspiracies like the fact that Carol from HR doesn't exist or that the company is being bled like a stuck pig, tell me about it. That would be great blog material. Have a good weekend everybody!
People - The world’s highest-paid actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has big box-office draw — but it’s his even bigger heart that made the Moana star this year’s Sexiest Man Alive!
So what did the former WWE champ, 44, think when he first heard about his latest title?
“I said, ‘That’s awesome.’ And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is,” Johnson tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “And then I thought, ‘Wow, we’ve pretty much reached the pinnacle.’ I’m not quite too sure where we go from here. I’ve done it all, this is it.”
The most entertaining man in show business strikes again!
The Rock makes a great point in that quote at the end of the story. Where does he go from here? He's already the world's highest-paid actor. He's dominated the TV screen via his days in the WWE and the movie screen via the Fast and Furious franchise and other standout films like The Tooth Fairy and whatever buddy cop movie he's in with Kevin Hart this year (Okay, maybe he can work on his movie resume a little bit).
Some possible options moving forward for The Rock:
-One of those Uber pranks where he drives the Uber and the passenger has no idea that it's a famous person.
-Make an attempt to join an NFL team. The Rock was a part of that unbelievable Miami football team with Ray Lewis and Devin Hester and shit, why not make a comeback tour? He's probably big enough for the job
-Host a daytime talk show. Maybe take over the other half of Live with Kelly? Maybe a new one called "Rock Talk"? He has the charisma, and he's experienced on live TV from his WWE years.
-Leave the public spotlight altogether. Pull a Costanza and leave the people wanting more. This might be his best course of action.
However, I bet if I presented these ideas to him, he'd tell me it doesn't matter what I think:
Because even though this election is a joke, we could all use a laugh right about now.
Keep a good D2F number, and have yourselves one hell of a weekend.
"Battle of the Bastards," Game of Thrones' 9th episode of this past season, won SEVEN Emmys on its own
GQ - .....The result was a stunning, emotional, cathartic episode that took home Emmys for:
Okay, I'm just gonna state the obvious to start this one out: Game of Thrones is the best show on television. There are no ifs, and, or buts about it. The acting, the directing, the writing, everything about it. It is head and shoulders above any other show on TV.
Battle of the Bastards is the best episode that Game of Thrones has ever put out, so it makes sense that that one hour of television collected more Emmys than even some of the most accomplished actors in the world will ever pick up. Battle of the Bastards emitted more genuine human emotion from me than any other TV show ever has. Even just looking at the episode's title, it was obvious that the episode was going to be awesome. "Battle of the Bastards" is a simple, yet perfect name for what was to come.
When Khaleesi set Drogon free on those slavers' asses, you knew the episode was going to be awesome. When Rickon took the arrow through the heart and you saw the fire in Jon's eyes, it set off the best battle scene in the history of TV. The little things like all of the horses running at Jon while he stood by himself and Jon breaking through the pile of bodies to finally take a breath added up and created one of the top two episodes of TV ever (along with the episode that followed Battle of the Bastards, The Winds of Winter). Simply put, Game of Thrones has passed other great TV shows like Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, and The Wire to firmly take the place of best TV show of all time, and one single episode winning seven Emmys is a tribute to that.
