It’s Black Friday, I’m STILL a bit Turkey wasted, and some people are presently out body slamming someone WWE-style for a microwave oven. The rest of us (Who would rather NOT open a can of whup ass to save a whopping 50 cents) get to enjoy an all new 5 Finds 4 Friday instead. Yay, us!!
Since it’s ALSO the last Friday of the month, I am opening up my Blogger’s Bookshelf: connecting fabulous blogs to fabulous people… since, last month! LOL Let’s get started!
Nicki Minaj + Maya Angelou = AWESOMENESS!!!
This past weekend, A&E aired Shining a Light: Conversations on Race in America. Did the star-studded affair OFFICIALLY end racism in America?!? Nope. But it did lead to some conversations about privilege, and featured some amazing performances (Seriously, check out Jill Scott’s rendition of the classic Billie Holiday song Strange Fruit… it will give you chills!!), and a highlight of the event was Nicki Minaj’s eloquent recitation of the Maya Angelou poem, Still I Rise. Check it out on Jezebel.
Game of Thrones Season 6 begins April 2016, and Jon Snow’s…. Alive?!?!The cast and crew of HBO hit show Game of Thrones really KNOW how to play with our emotions. After we apparently saw the demise of Jon Snow at the hands of the traitorous Crows, we were left not knowing whether or not he survived the stab-a-thon. Stars of the show (even Kit You Know Nothing, Jon Snow Harrington, himself) have assured us that Jon has indeed gone off to the great beyond, but then… this poster appeared. What are we to take from it?!? I guess the mystery will (hopefully) be revealed in April, but until then, read all about it on Buzzfeed.

Thanksgiving Clapback: Some We ALL Can Be Thankful ForOne thing most of us have grown accustomed to is plastering that weird, creepy smile on our faces when our older family members get out of pocket during the holidays… You know what smile I’m talking about, don’t you? That crying on the inside sort of smile when Great Aunt Agnes says something about your hair, or your clothes, or your job, or your lack of job. Imagine with me, if you a will.. a world where you can clap back without repercussions. I think that ultimately was the allure of the #ThanksgivingClapBack memes. We all have a family member we would LOVE to say these to… But we won’t. Not because it would be disrespectful, but because it ruins our chances of getting some Banana Pudding to go! LOL Check out some of the best memes on Awesomely Luvvie.
