Yesterday I used the work word a few too many times. But maybe I have to do it again after seeing this incredible video of what may be the best boss in the world. I never had one like this. Many of mine were uninspiring and certainly did their best to squash any creative instincts I had. But when Obama thanked his campaign workers this week, he began to cry. The man is exhausted and sincere as he tells a room full of devoted staffers that he is proud of them. For all you haters out there, I challenge you to watch this and tell me exactly what can you truly hate about this man?
And just in case that didn’t inspire you, here’s another uplifting video.
But a brief preface:
I detest Christmas creep and refuse to go all glitter and pine until the real gold on my trees has fallen to the ground. My garden is hanging on to the glory of fall and who needs Christmas music this early?
But there is one kind of music I will listen to but I have to wait along with everyone else. As I wrote in September, the musical adaptation of Les Miz is opening Christmas Day and is expected to be epic.
This week Universal released a spectacular new international trailer. Have fun. But you will still have to wait until Christmas!
You don’t have to wait for the new Bond film. It is out in theatres in selected cities across North America today. But you might have to wait to see the first black Bond. But it is coming. Rumours are swirling about London actor Idris Elba to take over after Daniel Craig finishes out his contract for two more Bond films. I’m in no rush to see Craig go ( swim trunk scene, thank you!) but Elba can fill out 007’s tux to be sure. Fans of The Wire will know this talented actor’s work well. Elba is also a hip hop artist so maybe his version of Bond will feature some crooning.
Have a great weekend!
