every girl’s dream up there, from the clothes,
to the necklace, to your man serenading
you on stage, with your family
all around, I mean. That was like a fantasy,
it really transported me. The space and the arrangement let us really hear your vocals, and your harmonies, to me,
were tighter than ever, so congratulations. I’m a fan of that song,
I’m a fan of yours! – [Toni] Thank you. – You know, I just
really love you guys, when you guys sing together
you are such a force. – Thank you.
– Thank you! – You can feel the
love on the stage. You seem like you’re so
comfortable right now. Now it’s like, you guys are
playing around with stuff, you’re like, “We
know who we are.” It’s getting better and better, it’s leveling up every time, and I really enjoyed
you guys tonight. – Thank you, thank you!
(cheering and applause) – Echoing kind of
what Ciara was saying, you can actually
really feel the love. At one point I was
completely gone, and I was just thinking about
mom and dad’s relationship, I was trying to dissect it, I was like, “I wonder
where they met.” (laughing) I was sucked in, it
was so beautiful, it was like watching a
performance at the Grammys, you guys look like
a million bucks, and you guys sounded
like a million bucks. – Thank you, David! (cheering and applause) – Great job guys, as always. From day one, every
time you guys perform it leaves me speechless. It’s a very, very special
thing to be a part of and to witness, so– – Thank you.
– As always, thank you all for the
gift you’ve given to us, great job yet again. Please give it up for the
Mathis family, everybody! (upbeat music)

Jenny Slate Is Obsessed with Wedding Videos of Brides Singing to Grooms


-I imagine one
of the fears was — ’cause, obviously, like,
people were gonna film it — like, this might
be one of those — It could live on
in the Internet. Like, you also
have that pressure. -That’s right.
We’re in the future now. -Yeah, right.
-And everything is computer. -Yes.
-You know, and computer rules. So, I was like — Okay. There’s two things I’m obsessed
with on the Internet that are, like,
painful for others but I can’t stop watching them. One is —
[ Chuckles ] Sorry.
[ Laughter ] I can’t even think about it
without laughing. Failed productions
of local Peter Pans. -Yeah.
-[ Chuckles ] Where someone backstage
pulls the wrong rope and just, like, Wendy gets
ripped out of her bed. -[ Laughs ]
-Truly bad karma, but I can’t stop watching it, and there really is one
where Wendy gets ripped out, and then she is,
like, in character, and she’s like, “Oooh!” [ Laughter ]
And, like, goes back to bed. But, anyway,
then there’s this other thing that I’m obsessed with,
which is brides that sing original songs to their grooms. -Uh-huh. Oh, wow. -Because it’s like
a one-on-one thing, and there’s one video
where it’s a bride. She goes down the stairs,
and she sings a song. It, like, actually
hurts me to remember it, but I am addicted to it. And she’s like… ♪ Mm, Kevin, we are getting
married to each other ♪ ♪ Right now! ♪ And he’s like… [ Laughter ] And he — [ Laughs ] He has to stand there
and be like, “Yes, baby. You are the best singer.
You are so beautiful.” And she’s like,
♪ Our parents are there ♪ ♪ Judy and Bill,
and there is my aunt ♪ You know, it’s just
like whatever, -[ Laughs ] -So you — -I don’t want to
just be in her face being like, “You are
graduating today.” You know? So, I had to play it real cool. -I have written a song called
“First in Your Class”. -Yeah. That would have been a cool leap if I had made it
a musical number and not told her…
-Yeah. -…and just shown up
on that island. It was in a tiny church. and just been like,
“And a one and a two…” [ Laughs ]
-‘Cause I will say, My biggest fear in life
is someone singing a song directly to me.
-Oh, yeah. -That is the worst thing
in the world. -Ugh! I can’t imagine it. I mean, I guess that’s why
I watch that on the Internet, all the time, just to, like, condition myself in case I’m just
in my house one day, and someone’s like,
♪ We’re in the kitchen ♪ I’m just like, “Aaaah!
I don’t want it. I don’t want it.” -So, this is your… -[ Laughs ]
-Congratulations. That’s so awesome.
-Thank you. It was okay. It was great.
-There is a photo, too. This is in the Vineyard Gazette. -[ Chuckling ] Yeah.
-A newspaper that I’ve — I’ve read the Vineyard Gazette. -Yeah?
Do you remember last year — Now we’re a little off topic, but they had a story
about how a bird called the blue-footed booby, like,
landed on someone’s boat, and it made the newspaper. -Yeah.
-You know? That’s what’s going on. -My father-in-law had
a pet goat that died, and it got on obituary, like,
longer than a president’s. [ Laughter ] They, like, interviewed other
people in, like, rememb– Like, “What did you
think of Raisin?” They’re like, “Well,
you know, he’s like… He was like most goats,
but I guess we’ll miss him.” -Oh, man. I’m super sorry to hear
about the goat, though. -Thank you.
-[ Chuckles ] -It was weird when he died
that I didn’t hear from you. -Yeah, yeah.
I don’t know. I have a really bad personality. -So, this was in
the Vineyard Gazette. -Yeah, yeah, yeah.
-You and Gwen. Are you happy with the photo? -Look, Gwen looks great. I want to go on record.
Gwen, you look great. My feeling about this photo — and I can’t believe I’m gonna
do this on television — but another fear of mine,
besides brides with microphones, is this thing that
one of my friends calls “adult head spread.”
-[ Laughs ] Okay. -I call it pumpkin head. It’s this feeling that
once you get into adulthood, your head becomes,
like, a lot bigger — like, you just can’t control it. Like, you just get
adult head spread. And I saw that in the newspaper, and I was like,
“What is this year of me finding stuff out
in the newspaper that’s, like, terrible.” And I just think it might be
the start of head spread. -Yeah.
[ Laughter ] -And I’m also like,
you know… “Did I really need to wear
a big chunky sweater?” But that’s for another show.
-It does feel like local — -It feels like a local girl meets an out-of-towner
afraid of ticks. -Yeah, that’s right. That’s what it was.
That’s what it was. -This is your second time
playing in… “The Secret Life of Pets 2”
-Yes. -This is a very pampered dog.
I think you can tell. -Yes, Gidget. -Are you pampered in real life?
-You know what? I’m not pampered at all.
-Really? -And I was saying —
I was hoping just before I came here
to just even get, like, a lip wax.
[ Laughter ] Like, I’m out of
the mani-pedi game. It’s over.
-Really? Fully out? -Yeah, I’m just really… [ Laughter ] Wild and free.
-Yeah. -Yeah.
-You’re with the ticks now. You’re running
with the ticks now. -Yeah. Oh, yeah. I live on a peninsula with my boyfriend
in Massachusetts, and we just, like,
check each other for ticks. That’s my chosen life. I like it.
-Thanks so much for coming back.

The /h/ Sound – Swedish Pronunciation #33

The /h/ Sound – Swedish Pronunciation #33


Hi there, I’m Edvin Palmer. Welcome to my
free Swedish Pronunciation Training. In this lesson, I want to practice our
seventh fricative: the /h/ sound. I want to practice this sound, so, that, by the
end of the lesson, you can name, describe and say the /h/ sound. Before we start
practicing, I want to tell you everything you need to know about the
/h/ sound. Let’s start with this: What is a consonant? A consonant is a speech
sound which we make by completely or partly stopping the flow of air which we
breathe out through the mouth. The /h/ sound is a consonant sound. We call it the Voiceless Glottal Fricative. This name tells us how we physically want to
make this sound. The following six things are imperative to know: One.
It’s manner of articulation is frica-. tive. Or, is it? In most languages, it’s
actually a transitional state of the glottis, with no manner of articulation
other than its phonation type. That means the /h/ is a one-of-a-kind
consonant sound. In fact, many phoneticians no longer
consider /h/ to be a fricative because the /h/ bears little resemblance to the
other fricatives. We have, however, kept the term fricative for historical
reasons. Two. It may have a glottal place of articulation. This means the /h/ just
sounds like a glottal sound, without actually having to be one. We probably
don’t produce the /h/ in the glottis itself and without any friction or
turbulence. You see, surrounding vowels influence the
pronunciation of the /h/. As the /h/ has the place of articulation of these
surrounding vowels, phoneticians have sometimes presented the /h/ as a voiceless vowel. That’s why the /h/ may have a glottal place of articulation.
We probably produce the /h/ in a similar way we produce the vowels
which are close to the /h/, without using the glottis. Three. Its phonation is
voiceless, which means we say it without vibrating our vocal cords. Four. It’s an
oral consonant, and that means we allow air to escape through the mouth only. Five. The central lateral dichotomy doesn’t apply, and that’s because we don’t
produce the sound with airflow over the tongue. Six. The airstream mechanism is
pulmonic, which means we articulate it by pushing air solely with the lungs and
diaphragm, as in most sounds. So, the /h/ sound is voiceless because we don’t use our vocal cords to say it. This is what definitely makes it a consonant sound
because all vowel sounds are voiced. It may have a glottal place of
articulation. It probably doesn’t, though, as we probably produce the /h/ in a similar way we produce the vowels which are close to the /h/. And, it’s a fricative sound. Or, is it? Nah, it probably ain’t that. We just call it
that because phoneticians used to call it that. Whatever. Pause the video and try it: /h/, /h/, /h/. It’s time for the exercise. It
is. Right here, I have ten words. Ten words I’m going to read out loud. All you
have to do is say each word after me, and I’ll say each word twice. So, let’s do
this. Let’s go! Word number one: “hatt”, “hatt”, “hotell”, “hotell”, “hiss”, “hiss”, “aha”, “aha”, “attrahera”, “attrahera”, “hysa”, “hysa”, “handla”, “handla”, “heta”, “heta”, “håna”, “håna”, and the last word is: “hoa”, “hoa”. I’m sure you did a great job, and you can
practice this over and over again. Can you think of a Swedish word which
contains the /h/ sound? If you can, I’d love it if you wrote down that word in
the comment section below this video. By now, I’m sure you’re able to name, describe, and say the /h/ sound. Be sure to subscribe to my channel, and watch this
series from the start. Next Friday, I’ll be back with a new video in my series on
LGBTQ+ Related Topics. Till then, I only want to say three things: thank you for
watching, have a great day, and bye y’all. Hej då.

Oklahoma Film + Music Spotlight: Lauren Nicole Clare, singer/songwriter

Oklahoma Film + Music Spotlight: Lauren Nicole Clare, singer/songwriter


Currently I head up the Allie Lauren
project it’s kind of just like an eclectic alternative project in terms of
the Oklahoma film and music scene there’s not a lot of places that I feel
like I’d go where I just immediately feel like home and of course this is
home I was just reading an article the other day where they were talking about
how a lot of times you know artists in their own home don’t necessarily feel
welcome and they’re often times welcomed with other places before they’re welcomed at home I don’t feel that way at all about Oklahoma, like every time I am
doing anything here I feel 100% able to just be myself and that to me is the
most special thing about this scene is that somebody as sort of oddball as
myself can feel welcome and feel at home and feel like there’s a space

10 Advanced Verbs to Help You Sound Smarter

10 Advanced Verbs to Help You Sound Smarter


– Today I am going to
talk to you about some advanced verbs to help you sound smarter. That’s coming up. Welcome to today’s lesson. It is a super, awesome,
amazing vocabulary lesson because I’m going to teach
you 10 different verbs to help you sound smarter.
And I say that they help you sound smarter because
these are more advanced verbs, these are advanced vocabulary words that are very specific, very precise that you can use in certain situations so that you can perfectly
express your ideas, thoughts and opinions and say
exactly what you want to say. These verbs are going to
help you do just that. Now I’m not only going to
tell the verb and the meaning but I’m also going to
give you the pronunciation as well as an example
sentence so that you can see how these words are used in context. That’s very important. So without further ado, let’s begin. The first word is to admonish and admonish has three
syllables and the stress is on that second syllable, mon, Admonish. And this is a verb that we
use with a direct object, to admonish someone, usually
for doing something wrong because what it means
is to counsel or advise against something, it’s
kind of like you’re scolding somebody in a way but
not because you are super angry and they did
something really terrible but they just did something
wrong and it’s not correct, maybe it was a little rude. – You just interrupted me
again while I was admonishing you for interrupting me. – Have you ever been
admonished for doing something? I definitely have been admonished for many things in my life. The next wonderful verb is to advocate. This word has three
syllables and the stress is on that first syllable, advocate and to advocate means
to show strong support for something, it could
be a support for a policy, it could be support for an issue and you advocate for it. We often use it with the preposition for, you advocate for something
when you are really passionate about something,
you really, really really believe in it and you want to advocate for this thing. The next verb is to bemoan and
this verb has two syllables and the stress is on that
second syllable, mohn, bemoan. You may also notice that
word in that second syllable, which kind of shares a
similar meaning to the verb, to bemoan, which means you
are basically expressing that you are upset, you are
distressed about something. It’s kind of like you’re
complaining and you might bemoan a situation that you are in. You might bemoan someone’s
decision if you disagree with it and you don’t like
it, you’re not very happy with something that happened
and you bemoan the situation. The next verb is compel. This word has two syllables
and the stress is on that second syllable, compel
and what it means is to, to force or drive or maybe
even encourage somebody to do something, some course of action, to do something that you want them to do, you really want to convince
them to do something, sometimes it can be done by force, you compel someone to do
something because maybe you’re threatening them
in some way, shape or form and you are compelling them to
do what you want them to do. – The power of Chrysler compels you. – But you’re really just
trying to get somebody to do this thing, to compel
someone to do something. The next verb is a good
one, embezzle, to embezzle. This verb has three syllables
and the stress is on that second syllable, embezzle. Embezzle and what it means
is to take money or maybe even property but most
of the time we’re talking about money and to do
it in a fraudulent way. People are creating some false
records, some false receipts and they are taking that
extra money and stealing it and they are embezzling the money. You could embezzle money from a company, you can embezzle money from a bank. – Lloyd Gross is a fictional salesman we invented
to, how do I put this, steal from the company, embezzle. To commit fraud. – I just got fired from Sweetems. – Because you were embezzling? – Now if you do this,
it’s a crime so it is not a good verb, it’s not a verb that you want to be associated with. The next verb is extol, to extol. This word has two syllables and the stress is on that second syllable, extol. And what it means is to praise highly, to give a lot of high praise,
to someone or to something. Often times you might extol
someone during a eulogy if there is a funeral and
a person is giving a eulogy and talking about the
person that has passed away, you want to talk about
all of the good things that this person did, you want
to give them a lot of praise and you would extol this person. You can also use it talking
about places or things, if you really just want to
speak highly of it, extol. Next is the verb impugn, to impugn. This word has two syllables and the stress is on that second syllable, impugn. And what it means is to claim
that something is false, to say that, to challenge it
and say that’s it’s not true and kind of cast doubt upon this situation or even this person. – So because of a few bad
apples, you’re gonna impugn an entire continent? – I’m impugning a continent. – A lot of times you might hear
it with the word character, to impugn someone’s character. Basically saying that
this person should not be believed, that they say
things that are false, they’re dishonest and
you’re trying to cast doubt over the things that this
person is talking about when you impugn someone’s character. – Mr. Chairman, if she’s
going to impugn his character while he’s speaking. – It’s not a good verb,
it’s not something that we should try to do
but this is a situation that happens and it’s a
great way to describe it. To impugn someone or something. Another great verb, which is one of my favorites is obfuscate. This verb has three syllables
and the stress is on that first syllable, obfuscate. And what it means to obfuscate something is to confuse or bewilder
and just try to create a confusing situation so
that it’s really difficult to understand so you
might hear it being used, they want to obfuscate a
situation, they want to obfuscate an issue, they want to obfuscate a policy, it happens a lot I think
in politics when you’re trying to get people to believe
one thing or another thing and some people try to
obfuscate certain issues. The next verb is placate. This word has two syllables and the stress is on that first syllable, placate. And what it means is to
appease by giving something up, you’re giving up some concession in order to try and get something that you want, to placate someone. For example, if somebody
is upset with you, you did something wrong, you
will do something for this person, you’ll give
something up, you are trying to placate them in order
for this person to forgive you, to be okay with
it and just to move on, to placate someone. Another great verb, repudiate. This verb has four
syllables and the stress is on that second syllable, repudiate. And this means to reject
something, to reject it with disapproval because
there’s no authority in this thing that people
are trying to say or do. To repudiate someone or you
could repudiate something. So for example at work
if you are the manager and you have employees
and they make a request and you could reject it and say no, I don’t like it, this is a terrible idea, you would repudiate this. – Senator Eleanor, Prenses
Shaw, does it bother you at all your son
repudiates so many of your more controversial policies? – No. – It was refused, rejected,
rebuffed, repudiated. – It’s kind of a
confrontational word because if you repudiate something
then you’re really letting the other person
know that you’re a bit unhappy, that you don’t
like this and you are rejecting it, you repudiate it. So right now I would like
to advocate for you to write us a comment and let
us know an English word that you have recently learned. It could be any word, a
noun, an adjective, a verb. Just let us know, we love hearing from you in the comments. If you don’t write us a
comment, I’m not going to bemoan the situation, I’m
not even going to admonish you but we would really
appreciate it and if you do, I will placate you by coming out with another lesson next week. I hope you enjoyed
learning these new words and you can go on and
practice and use them, please hit that like button
if you found this lesson useful and as always, thanks for watching and we’ll see you next time.

The ‘Full House’ When D.J. Almost Starved Herself To Death

The ‘Full House’ When D.J. Almost Starved Herself To Death


(crash) (slow gentle theme music) – [Narrator] Kimmy invites
D.J. to a pool party to celebrate her 14th birthday. D.J.’s concerned because unlike Kimmy, she’s
insecure about her body and won’t feel comfortable
in a bathing suit until she looks like this insane picture on the
cover of a made-up magazine. D.J. says she only has
two weeks to get skinny, and the diet starts now by
throwing these cookies away. She asks Kimmy how she stays so thin, and Kimmy demonstrates. It’s a casual mix of waste bins
and watching what she eats. D.J.’s taping half naked
models to the family fridge when Becky comes home. She says looking at these models is thin-spiration, to stay out of the fridge. Aunt Becky tries to tell
her about healthy food she can still enjoy. D.J. says she’s not trying to
think about any food at all. Becky says what really matters is keeping junk food out of the house. Uncle Jesse shows up
with a huge box of cake. D.J.’s not phased by the cake, and announces she’s going to enjoy this delicious and savory
water-pop she made herself. Jesse’s doing wedding research, and got enough cake samples
to murder a diabetic pothead. They invite D.J. to
join the frosted feast, but she says she’s fine sucking
this ice cube on a stick that even kids in third
world countries might see and say, “Yeah, no.” Michelle goes ham on that cake. D.J.’s frustrated, she only
lost half a pound in two days. Jesse says all she needs to
do to lose weight is work out, and they can all go to the gym and work out as a big family this weekend because that’s a normal thing
families do all the time. Danny makes D.J. a sandwich,
and tells her to eat up because they’re about to hit the gym. D.J. says she’s skipping lunch, and asks Kimmy if she wants the sandwich. Kimmy says it’s a ham sandwich, again, and she’s been eating her
lunch for three straight days, and doesn’t want another ham sammy. Stephanie overhears the sammy talk, and adds D.J.’s also been
skipping breakfast and dinner for three days straight, and doesn’t understand
how she’s still alive, on account of you need
to eat things not to die. D.J. promises to eat her sandwich, then promptly feeds that crap to the dog. D.J. says Comet is lucky because dogs don’t have
to wear bathing suits. Stephanie makes this face because she realizes
her sister is a dummy. Stephanie busts D.J. for
lying about the sandwich, and D.J. lies again, saying
Comet snatched it from her. Steph busts her for lying a
second time about the snatching, and when D.J. says she wasn’t
lying those last two times, Steph busts her for lying a
third time about the lies, which honestly feels a little nitpicky. D.J. tells Steph she has one week to look good in a bathing suit, and after that week, she’ll resume eating. But in that time, when D.J. will certainly
die from not eating, Steph has to pinky swear
she won’t tell anyone about her plan to starve to death. Steph reluctantly pinky sears to keep this slow suicide a secret. The fam goes to the gym, featuring a plethora of oiled
up muscle heads and women with thin strips of neon fabric
wedged up their assholes. D.J. wants to know the
best way to burn calories, those things she hasn’t had in days. Danny points her to a bike, and tells her to start slow at level one. D.J. does not have time
for that level one nonsense and takes that shit straight to level seventy god-damn five, what you know about it. The guys go with Michelle
for a cute B storyline. It’s Michelle doing cute workout stuff in cute workout clothes. It’s a real cute pallet cleanser from the harsh reality that a 14 year old they bailed on is about
to drop dead upstairs. Meanwhile, D.J. hits a new machine like she’s dying of cancer,
and this thing has the cure. Becky tells the guys to
join her in aerobics class. They say no way because it’s 1990 and (scoffs) aerobics? Until they see some of those women with fabric in their booty cracks and decide they’ll give this
aerobics a thing a fair shake, ignoring D.J. in the corner, about to have a goddamn heart attack. Aerobics class is whatever, who cares. The guys just post in the
back and look at butt cheeks. The aerobics teacher moves
these perverts to the front, and they start flailing around because they’re out of shape. It’s hilarious if you
have no sense of humor. Stephanie says D.J. has to
see this very bland spectacle. D.J. says she’ll be right there, and falls down faster than a
folding chair in a hurricane. She says she’s okay, and
just got a little dizzy because she overdid it. It meaning everything
except eating anything. Stephanie is sad her
sister’s about to die. D.J. comes down, saying she’s well rested, and nobody’s buying it. Joey said he made chicken parm, and invites her to taste the sauce. D.J. says she can’t taste the sauce because she just brushed her teeth, even though she definitely didn’t because toothpaste would
borderline count as food. D.J. starts yelling because she’s hangry, and says she’s going to dinner at Kimmy’s. Stephanie stops her because she realizes a pink
swear isn’t legally binding. She reveals D.J. hasn’t
eaten in three days. Her family warns her that
what she’s doing is dangerous because she’s riding a bus with no breaks to Crankyville that
ultimately will drop her off with her dead mom in hell. Danny runs after D.J. to console her with a boring story about
how he had body issues when he was young because he’s tall as
shit and lanky as hell, but it doesn’t matter, because your real friends
will like you no matter what, at least at this age before they start picking
friends based on things like who has a car, who has drugs, and who’d like you’d maybe
eventually sleep with. Danny makes D.J. promise she’s going to eat healthy and exercise. Then he takes her hungry ass downstairs. So what did we learn today? Food isn’t just some shit that’s stopping your
fridge from floating away. You actually need to eat
it in order to survive, and if you don’t eat food
for several consecutive days, you’re going to majorly fuck
your shit up, and maybe die. But if you know people around
you are watching their weight, don’t eat cookies out of
the trash in front of them or taunt them with a cake buffet or drag them to gym full
of impossibly fit extras when all they need is a gentle reminder that everyone’s miserable all the time, and the only thing you
can ever do about it is shove chicken parm in your mouth with people you care about. And if you see your
deliriously hungry sister talking to dogs about bathing suits, don’t wait until the brink of death to save her life because
her designated guardians will be too busy looking at butt cheeks to realize something’s horribly wrong. See you next time on a
Very Special Episode. (bell rings) (hinge creaks)

Jared Singer & Omar Holmon – “Uncle Daycare” (NPS 2014)

Jared Singer & Omar Holmon – “Uncle Daycare” (NPS 2014)


When someone gets married,
they get a bridal shower. When they have a child,
they get a baby shower. I’ve got a question… Where the fuck was my uncle shower? Where’s my instruction manual for this? I was damn sure to make sure
I didn’t have any kids. My genetics? Fort Knox. – I’m talking birth control,
– Nonoxynol-9, straight spermicide, son. – I went all-pro in prophylactics.
– Condoms. What! I drink an ocean of Mountain Dew
because it nukes your sperm count. But I never thought you having a kid
would change my life. You know how Lord of the Rings
is supposed to be a grand adventure? All the fellowship had to do
was walk across a few fields and throw a piece of jewelry
into a glorified fireplace. I’m calling bullshit. You want an impossible, magical task? Try putting six nieces and nephews
into the back of a ’96 Toyota Camry, and leading them safely to the zoo. – Between the screaming,
– “I am so great! I am so great!” – …the prying into my life.
– “What’s going on with your beard? Do you have a girlfriend?
How about your stock options?” It is a miracle
I did not ram us into a wall. They say Gandalf the Grey
was a patient wizard. Fuck that! I am Gandalf
the I Will Turn This Car Right Around! Kids, kids are the living embodiment
of Jason Derulo music. Jason Derulo sings his own name
in every song. ♪ Jason Derulo ♪ Upon hearing this for the first time, my nephew shouts out, “Noah Fernando!” – Now, any time he does anything it’s…
– “Noah Fernando!” – …even when he proclaims his innocence. “Noah Fernando.” You think you know vindictive adults? My nephew Harrison’s brother
stole his dessert once. Harrison can’t allow that. Now, whenever no one is looking,
he steals his brother’s dessert, licks it, and puts it back on the plate. You think you know mean girls? I watch my nieces get into it
when Mariah reads her sister’s diary then starts quoting it
like a hip hop disc track. On the outside, I’m like, “This is fucked up,” but on the inside, I’m like, “This shit’s better than Scandal!” You think you know love? My sister tells me
how Noah defends his nanny in the face of a man
shouting at her, telling him, “You are a naughty man.
Stop talking. Go home.” You think you know compassion? After blaming myself
for the worst breakup I will ever have, believing I’d never find love again,
Harrison joins the conversation. “Why are you being so mean to yourself? You’d never let me
talk to myself like that.” But I never thought you having a kid
would change my life. – I always hated kids…
– Until I fell in love with yours. Now I want to have my own, to know I can help
make something this beautiful. (cheers and applause) (man) Give it up for [inaudible],
ladies and gentlemen.

Ozzy Man Reviews: Live Music Fails

Ozzy Man Reviews: Live Music Fails


Oy if you live in Perth, then come to my live show bushfire fundraiser. All proceeds go to the pregnant sheila that had ScoMo force a handshake on her and the Irwin’s Wildlife Warriors charity. The link to get tickets is in the post description below. Let’s fuckin do it! [Music] It’s me again with some tips and tricks on how to nail a live music performance. OH! Spinny guitar RIGHT to the face. The singer is pretending it didn’t hurt, but I reckon that’s gonna leave a mark. It makes the show ten times better, though. The bass player bloody loves it. Get ready for another spinny guitar move. The drummer’s in danger! Nah, it’s all good. I think this guy’s bandmates had the bass guitar turned right down anyway, so no one is gonna miss hearing it. I don’t wanna brag, but… I do know how to shred a great guitar solo, this here is not a great guitar solo. [Bad guitar solo performance] The singer comes out and says “you’ve ruined my dreams!” The bass player is like “just quit, man!” It is frustrating when the weakest link in a band has no idea how shit they are, and refuses to quit. On tour is NOT the place to try new, experimental directions. Even if you’re Van Halen! [Bad performance] If your name is Lil’ Wayne, don’t play guitar at all. Put the guitar down. [Bad performance] I can’t tell if he’s concentrating or high as shit. Actually, definitely both. Don’t play a Jimmy Page style doubleneck guitar in a Storm Trooper helmet. DON’T DO IT! [Music] There’s a reason Stormtroopers have shitty aim. You cannot see a fucken thing in that imperial workwear. Stagediving! Here’s a few pro tips. Make sure you know WHERE the crowd is before ya do it. Once you’ve found the crowd, make sure they genuinely wanna catch you. Oh, don’t wear budgie smugglers. Yeah nah, it was at this moment Shane realised NO ONE wants to touch his balls. And off to the medical tent. Iggy is like “my dick is away. It won’t rub you. C’mon, catch me.” Nah, no one trusts him. His dick is never away. A trampoline is both an excellent idea and a horrible idea when stage diving. Just rehearse ya stunts before the show or you’ll end up with regrets like Steve Aioli. Stage diving is getting popular amongst rap musicians at the moment, which is handy, because everyone in the audience is filming on their phones, so if you fuck it up, you have plenty of angles to choose from when filling out your insurance forms. Always remember the show must go on even if ya spew, even if ya vomit ya guts out, even if ya hurl like a motherfucker, do not stop. You pretend it didn’t happen and you finish the song. “Oh yeah baby… AHHHH” that’s the last time anyone ever saw Travis. Oh no, there’s Drake, that’s handy. Bring your own Drake if you ever fall off stage. BYO Drake. If you’re security working at an Anthrax gig and a dickhead runs up, try not to tackle lead singer Joey Belladonna. He’s an important part of the band, and his mates get shitty when you do. (Band member: “I guess they haven’t seen him up here on stage for the last 90 minutes. he is in the BAND!” A Fan: “The fuckin arsehole.”). Take a tip from TOOL singer Maynard, if an overeager fan storms the stage, simply body slam him, mount him, and apply a choke hold. Then spend the rest of the set gently riding him while singing loudly at the back of his head. The fan will be cool with it. Soon he’ll sing along. Yeah! Boom! Situation deescalated. Cross out the security fee in ya budget. The fan leaves the stage confused, but happy. Yeah nah yeah, those are me tips to a successful live music performance! Rock out with your cock out, like Iggy Pop, unless you prefer your cock in your pants, which is understandable.

it over and over but you have that
old soul quality. And Zacary, when you
were singing soon
I’ll be 60 years old it made me think that
whoever wins this tonight is not only just
winning for a moment, it’s an opportunity for us to hear your music for
decades and decades. And if I was that
record company, I’d be like yeah I want to
see what these guys are doing in a year, in 10 years and 30 years and 50 years. (cheering) Because you’re standing
there with all this promise of what’s to come and that’s what makes me so
emotional watching you guys and it’s just so
incredible, well done. – Thank you.
– Thank you so much. (cheering) – I don’t want to say too
much ’cause I know you guys got to start your
world tour soon. (laugher) Every time you guys come here
it’s your best performance. It’s getting annoying. When are you guys going to peak? When we’re watching you guys there’s nothing
else in the room. It’s just you three. You guys really know
how to captivate us and bring us in and then make
every song your own and you make it feel so good. I’m so excited to
see what you guys are going to do after the show. Because it’s going to
be really impressive. – Thank you.
(cheering) – That performance was heavenly. It was so sweet. I was about to cry up here. You guys brought
the feels tonight. I’m speechless, really honestly, because I know what I’m looking
at is really special here. And you can feel it in the room. It’s just been so fun to be a part of your
journey ’til this point. Way to bring it again tonight. – Thank you. (cheering) – I need to shake some hands. I’m a 45 year old man, and I’m going to thank you guys, you young bucks for moving me in a way that I haven’t
been moved in a long time. How does singing that
song make you feel? – Well, whenever I perform
I take myself on a journey to another different world. A world of music. A world where I just get to sing and just share my voice
with all of the world. Including all of you! (cheering) – I’ve just now realized that you are in fact
Benjamin Button. – (laughs) – You’re really
a 65 year old man but you keep getting
younger as time goes on. And we can’t tell and you’re fooling us all. No, the talent that you guys
possess at such a young age is special, man. It is something that only comes along
once in a long time. So, embrace it, love it, don’t ever let it go. Keep doing what
you guys are doing ’cause it’s powerful,
powerful stuff. One more time for The
Melisizwe Brothers everybody. (upbeat music)
