This Week at The Conservative Journal: September 27th- October 3rd

Sorry posting was so non-existent Friday and Saturday.  I was extremely busy with work and I didn’t have much free time.  But this week I should be back on schedule with regular posting.  Here’s a look at you can expect for the week ahead:

Sunday

  • I’m pretty much going to play catch up today and post the big stuff I was planning on posting at the end of last week but didn’t get to due to time constraints.  That means you can look for that “Fireside Chat” with a former Barack supporter, and some “Thrilling Thursday” posts.

Monday

  • Look for an addition to the “Hall of Fame”  in the form of a “Seal of Approval” and, if time permits, a response to last week’s EnergyFLA post that answers questions you’ve sent in.  I’ve had a great response to that so far, so if you want to have your question answered, send it to me at theconservativejournal@gmail.com!

Tuesday

  • If there’s any fresh garbage at the DUmp, look for a “DUmmies Exposed” post.  Considering it’s the DUmp, you can be sure they’ll do something post-worthy.

Wednesday

  • Be sure and stop by on Wednesday so you can check out what I’m checking out!  What blog or site will be featured next?  Stop by on Wednesday to find out!

Thursday

  • IT’S THRILLING THURSDAY EVERYBODY!!  I’ll be back on schedule to post recaps of The Office, Parks and Recreation, Saturday Night Live Weekend Update, Fringe, and possibly FlashForward.  I totally forget to record that one last week, so we’ll see if I like it.  Also, I’ll announce the winner of the comment/e-mailing contest and then lay down the details of the next “Thrilling Thursday” contest.

Friday

  • I’m going to go ahead and say it’ll probably just be regular scheduled posting, i.e. the daily posts.  If it turns out I’m free Friday, I’ll be sure to post away!

Saturday

  • Someone’s going to be inducted into the “Plaque of Fail” section of the Hall of Fame, so be sure and stop by with your pitch fork in hand to drive the village idiot into the cave of exile.  Or just read the post.  Whatever works.

Be sure and check out all the exciting things taking place this week at The Conservative Journal!

Song of the Day: “Never Say Never” by The Fray

The Fray’s second single from their third album FAR surpasses the overplayed debut single, “You Found Me”.  It’s about 1 million times better, to say the least.  Listen to the nice, piano-infused song below:

Song of the Day: “Live Like You Were Dying” by Kris Allen (New Single)

Here’s Kris Allen’s first single after winning American Idol, “Live Like You Were Dying”.  I like it, it’s not anything revolutionary, but it’s a fun song that I can see myself listening to while driving home from work.  I’ll probably even sing along.  Listen to the song below:

Song of the Day: “Happy” by Leona Lewis (New Single Live on America’s Got Talent)

I was a big fan of Leona Lewis on the X-Factor (Yes, I did watch that), and I was also a fan of most of the stuff on her first CD, and there’s no denying she’s got a great voice.  The new song,  “Happy”, is different, and I’m not crazy about it now, but I think it’ll grow on me.  Listen below and decide for yourself if you like today’s song of the day:

Song of the Day: “Battlefield” by Jordin Sparks (Remix)

Generally, I’m extremely against remixes of songs; however, I’ve finally found one that works.  The remix of “Battlefield” by Jordin Sparks is much better than the original.  Listen below to today’s song of the day!

September 18th News Bits and Pieces: Kanye West, Taylor Swift, Carrie Prejean, and Republicans

News and Politics

Democrats run away from embattled ACORN

Aside from the fact that the article I linked to is a grossly biased look at the issue by MSNBC (slight exaggeration), this is refreshing news for me to read/hear.  It’s no surprise that Republicans in Congress were able to band together and vote for banning ACORN funding, but the fact that any Democrats are jumping on board is a great sign that we’re getting somewhere.

CNN Responds to Fox Ads: “You Lie!”

I’m afraid that I’m going to have to take CNN’s side on this.  Write it down, because this is probably the first and the last time.  While I do agree with Fox that they gave the best and most indepth coverage of the 9/12 Rally, CNN did show up for some coverage.  And while I don’t agree with Sanchez (CNN) that it was “extensive coverage”, it was some and therefore CNN did not deserve to be mentioned in the Fox News ad that listed all of the networks that ignored the story.

Ex-Miss California Carrie Prejean says she’s not a ‘hater’ at Values Summit

For those that were following me during the start of the Carrie Prejean saga, you’d know that I’m on her side.  I really am.  But I think she maayyy be milking the beauty pageant events a little too much.  I think she definitely deserved her attention for that right after it happened, but it’s been many months.  I think Carrie would make a great news anchor, tv personality, etc., but I’d like for her to do it on her own right and not because of a scandal caused by a lowlife scum.

Dow nears one-year highs

WOO THE RECESSIONS OVER!  EVERYONE GO BUY A NEW BMW!  Alright, not quite.  I have my doubts that the recession is truly over, especially since job less is expected to continue.  I think what we may see is a “double-dip” recession; meaning it’s going to look like it’s getting better (now), but then drop back off again slightly before getting fully better.  I do think the worst is over, and I’d love to proven wrong on my “double-dip” theory.  After all, it is just a theory.

Entertainment

Was Kanye-Gate Staged?  Experts Say No.

Why do people write pointless articles about stuff we already know?  AOL really just wrote this article to reaffirm common and accepted fact that this event was not staged?  Someone needs a new creativity team.

Taylor Swift Gets A Few Questions Too Many About Kanye West VMA Interruption

Like the rest of us, even Taylor Swift is tired of hearing about herself and Kanye.  In an interview today, she asked the interviewer to move on from the Kanye subject because she didn’t “want to make it a bigger deal than it is”.  When the interviewer continued talking about it, she quit doing the interview.  I’m liking Taylor Swift more and more by the day.  She’s starting to grow up and stand up for herself, whereas before she’s always come across as so week and feeble.  Good for her!

Thrilling Thursdays: You Definitely Want to Be Here

For those who were following the blog in the spring or late winter, I’m sure you remember “No Politics Tuesday”.  For those that don’t remember/weren’t hear, let me catch you up.  Trust me, it’s not difficult:  Every Tuesday I took a break from discussing anything about politics and posted only entertainment stories, reviews, etc.  Well, after the television shows ended (though to be quite honest it started to crumble a little earlier) No Politics Tuesday kind of fizzled out.  Well, let me tell you right now, I’m bringing it back and this time it’s better than ever.

Everyone give “Thrilling Thursdays” a warm round of applause.  Woo!  Since most of the television shows I will recap air on Thursdays, I found it only fitting to switch the entertainment days around.  The new day for fun isn’t called “No Politics Thursday” because I make no promises the day will be devoid of political discussion.  In fact, I posted something about ACORN earlier today.  So Thrilling Thursdays will be a mixture, though mostly entertainment content.

Here’s the scoop on what Thrilling Thursdays will hold:

  • Recaps of “SNL Weekend Update Thursday”, “Parks and Recreation”, “The Office”, and “Fringe”.  These are live blogged, so I’ll be posting the recaps as they happen.
  • At least one music review or book review.
  • The Thrilling Thursdays TCJ Arena Smackdown.  This is going to be really fun.  Starting next week, I’ll be doing a contest exclusively for subscribers.  So if you haven’t signed up, read more about it here, or click here to fill out the registration form (all it takes is an e-mail address and your ready for action!).  The Smackdown isn’t going to be a giveaway, but an actual contest where you have to do something.  Don’t worry, there will be a good prize envolved.  Remember, these are exclusively for Deluxe Members.  Become one free by clicking here and reading the details!

That’s all for Thrilling Thursdays now.  The first full force Thrilling Thursday will take place next week, so make sure your here for the contest!  I’ll make an announcement on contest details next week.
