Is Donald Trump Channelling Elvis?

This is one of the delights of Being Gen X. If you first got to listen to the music and then subsequently get to see the visual, it adds a special layer of nostalgia and meaning that is impossible to describe to younger people who grew up with Youtube and full media or multimedia as it once was called.

I'm posting this Elvis clip as it claims to be new video footage though I doubt it is. However it is notable for a drunk and barely able to breath Elvis launching into song and smashing it out of the park.

I also find the first few seconds of Elvis in the video remind me of Trumps body language.

Joel Osteen - Parody

There's possibly a bit more to Osteen and his wife (nee) Iloff than meets the eye (sic), but suffice to say the mega-church leader's hypocrisy has been uncovered.

I notice the 'believers' and 'followers' of Osteen on Twitter invariably have no ability to separate what he says from what the Bible says. 

This has to be a fundamentally mental-illness in anyone who claims to be a follower or believer in Christ.

Kung Fu Hustle - 2004

Kung Fu Hustle has to be the best example of a film that has local themes, but is flat-out globally funny. 

Well, OK it might not make sense to a North Korean or Arctic Circle dweller but it is a hoot, and I'm surprised it took me 13 years to get round to seeing as I recall buying the DVD in Bangkok when it was released.
