1. Late Night With Roy TONIGHT
It’s that time once again. Late Night with Roy is BACK. The annual kickoff for basketball season should be a blast yet again. Tar Heel great Antawn Jamison will co-host the event so it should be a blast! Keep an eye on my Insta and Twitter for more.
1. Remarks on Our Country
I have sat tirelessly the past few weeks and watched the Brett Kavanaugh hearings regarding his nomination to the Supreme Court. Through this, I have found that the state of our nation is bleak.
1. Thoughts on a Concert Cancellation
Hurricane Florence wreaked havoc throughout North Carolina, from real damage to shifting around countless events. One such event that piqued my curiosity was Niall Horan’s concert at Coastal Credit Union Park at Walnut Creek on Monday. Horan announced via social media on September 14 that the show was being cancelled, which really came as no surprise. What is a bit surprising is the show was never rescheduled. In my experience, most shows that are affected by weather or whatnot are eventually rescheduled. This show? No reschedule whatsoever.
The first of two appreciation posts goes to Nike. The sportswear brand announced a new “Just Do It” camapaign featuring Colin Kaepernick, the NFL quarterback who (wrongly) received much ire for kneeling during the National Anthem in protest of racial discrimination that still exists in our country.
It’s that time yet again for me to begin thinking about Photography Competition at the N.C. State Fair. I have participated in it for the past 10 years and have enjoyed it overall, despite some flaws. I will get to that in a second. Plus, I’ll also tell you why I actually won’t be entering the competition this year or in the foreseeable future.
1. Musings on The Fosters Finale
Well, that’s it, folks. After a five-year run, The Fosters has come to an end. As you may know, I haven’t shied away from expressing my disgust with concluding the show. Particularly because I felt there was more story to be told and the decision to make this the final season seemed hasty. The three-part finale was mostly useless except for the final 10-15 minutes of the last episode, which featured several flashbacks with the whole family. I knew the show couldn’t go on forever but it’s a shame it ended the way it did.
1. Park Lecture at UNC
I had the opportunity to attend the UNC School of Media and Journalism’s 20th annual Park Lecture on Thursday. If you click on the link I’ve provided, you’ll notice who the keynote speaker was: Tucker Carlson. The - often - outspoken host on Fox News has several beliefs that I do not agree with and I also have strong opinions about Fox News as a whole.
