My Friday Five: On A Concert Cancellation, A New ‘AGT’ Champ, And Recapping The Bulls Season

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.

My Friday Five: On ‘The Fosters’ Finale, Joe Biden & Supporting Friends

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.

My Friday Five: On UNC’s Park Lecture, #Pack9 & Krispy Kreme

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.
