I fund my Periscopes and podcasts via audience micro-donations on Patreon. I prefer this method over accepting advertisements or working for a “boss” somewhere because it keeps my voice independent. No one owns me, and that is rare. I’m trying in my own way to make the world a better place, and your contributions help me stay inspired to do that.

There’s still no mixtape between Drake and Future yet, or any further telltale signs that it’s even happening since Thursday’s initial buzz. However, Future played Toronto University university on Friday night and the 6 God, of course, made sure he was well received in the city. Drake didn’t come alone either, bringing with him councilman Norm Kelly, the politician who issued the no-fly zone warning to Meek Mill at the outset of that whole fiasco.
Always pay your respects to the 6 God(s).
Watch footage from the show below, more on the flip.

KFC’s weird ads have just gotten even weirder, with the introduction of a plot twist in the form of comic Norm Macdonald, who claims to be the “real” Colonel Sanders.
In a new commercial, Macdonald — dressed as the fast food chain’s founder — watches one of the recent love-’em-or-hate-’em ads that featured fellow “Saturday Night Live” alum Darrell Hammond as the Colonel.
“Hey! That’s not the real Colonel Sanders! I’m the real Colonel Sanders,” says Macdonald. “This is how you sell chicken!” He then introduces himself as “Real Colonel Sanders,” does the sales pitch and announces, of course, that the food is “finger-lickin’ good.”
“Other than not quite looking like him, his voice being different and his inability to cook the world’s best chicken, we thought Norm was the perfect choice to play the Real Colonel,” Kevin Hochman, chief marketing officer for KFC U.S., told AdWeek. “I think the fans will agree.”
A second ad features Macdonald as Sanders in his underwear denouncing the “imposter” Colonel Sanders. As he gets dressed, he says “they can’t just grab some super-funny Hollywood actor, throw a white suit on him and try to pass him off as the real Colonel Sanders.”
Check that out here:
For the record, the real Col. Harland Sanders died in 1980.

When picturing the typical American family, you can forget about a “Leave It To Beaver”-type image. Currently, 54 percent of kids in this country don’t live in a home with two heterosexual parents in their first marriage, according to a recent Pew Research Center report.
“It’s important to keep in mind that what many define as ‘traditional’ is based on a 1950s-style family,” Gretchen Livingston, Senior Researcher at Pew and author of the study, told HuffPost in an email. “But in many ways, the 1950s and early 1960s were an anomaly, especially in terms of the fact that people were marrying quite young and also having relatively large families.”
Nowadays, only 46 percent of kids live in that aforementioned “traditional” family. Instead, 15 percent of today’s kids are living with two parents in a remarriage, 34 percent live with an unmarried parent, 4 percent live with cohabiting parents and 5 percent don’t live with either parent.
For perspective, 73 percent of American kids lived in a “traditional” family home in 1960, while only 9 percent lived with an unmarried parent.
Livingston said that the decline in marriage over the last 50 years can explain the increasing number of kids living with single or cohabiting parents. It’s also now more socially acceptable for people to cohabit, marry later and have kids outside of marriage — 41 percent of births today are happening without a walk down the aisle, according to Pew.
Then, of course, there’s the rise of divorce. The divorce rate may have peaked in 1981, but it’s still contributing to the shift away from the 1960s “traditional” family structure.
Moral of the story? When it comes to family, abnormal is the new normal.
