The BOSSY List: 5 things I love this week 11.7.16
1. "Westworld" (HBO)
Listen to me people: you need to get on this. Did you love "Lost?" Loved its twisty plots, secret messages and mysterious characters?
You need to check out "Westworld" on HBO.
Now, it looks like a western…but don’t be confused. The western atmosphere is a game. A game where rich “guests” can pay to play a character and do practically anything they want (e.g. rape, kill, create general mayhem). The actors in the game are the “hosts:” robots with artificial intelligence.
I don't want to give too much away, but here are some things to tease you: Who's traveling when and where? Who is the Man in Black? Who's programming the glitches? Who is Arnold?
If you’re looking for a clever show that has more questions than answers, "Westworld" is it. #obsessed. Catch up on HBOgo.com. There are also podcasts, faux web sites, faux Twitter pages and recaps galore.
2. "Saturday Night Live" (NBC)
Sorry, I gotta go with SNL again. The opening was brilliant and the Cubs performance with Bill Murray was adorable. Keep it coming! The election might be close to over, but the drama isn't. We need to keep laughing or we'll cry. Watch videos from this week's episode here.
3. A Tribe Called Quest new album: "We Got It From Here, Thank You for Your Service"
Although coming at a time of sadness (founding member Phife Dawg passed away this past March at age 45), this Friday November 11 A Tribe Called Quest releases their sixth album, their first in 18 years.
According to the New York Times: "[The album] features all four of the group’s members plus a host of guests — André 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Elton John, Jack White and Busta Rhymes, a longtime Tribe collaborator who made a heralded appearance on the 1992 posse cut “Scenario.”
You can see the Tribe perform this weekend on "Saturday Night Live" with guest host Dave Chappelle.
4. Tom Brady
He's back and he's EN FUEGO. At this official mid-point of the season, the Patriots have won all four games since Brady's return from a four-game suspension and currently have the best record in the AFC. My love for TB12 could not be stronger at this moment.
Even ESPN - who skewered Brady and perpetuated lies during the silly "Deflategate" scandal - wrote recently:
"What he has done over the first four games of his 2016 season has been scary: Brady is 98-of-134 for a 73.1 completion percentage, throwing for 1,319 yards and averaging 9.84 yards per attempt. He leads all qualifying passers in both of those rate statistics. Perhaps most impressively (albeit unsurprisingly): Brady has thrown 12 touchdowns without an interception.
"In all, Brady has posted a passer rating of 133.9 through four games. 133.9! That's unreal. We would say those are video game numbers, but if the game was that easy, you would raise the difficulty level because it almost wouldn't be fun if you were that good."
5. Hillary Clinton for 45th President of the United States
Name cleared, yet again. Haven't you boys had enough? You've tried and you've tried to bring her down and she keeps fighting back and standing strong.
Let's do this Hillz. You stand for the future and for what's right and good and just and fair. #imwithher (if you hadn't already noticed).
