James Corden & Rosie O’Donnell Show Off Their Hamilton Rapping Skills

first_img View Comments Hamilton Related Shows from $149.00center_img And you call yourself a Hamilfan? Step aside for Rosie O’Donnell and James Corden. When O’Donnell, who’s hosted the Tony Awards thrice previously, visited Corden on The Late Late Show, she had some advice for this year’s emcee: practice saying “And the Tony goes to Hamilton.” This led to her admitting she’s seen the Lin-Manuel Miranda masterpiece literally a dozen times, likening it to a religious experience, and rapping a good bit of the opening number with Corden. Color us impressed! We now have two people to add to our “King George dream casting” list. Take a look at the clip below, and someone please send poor Nikki Glaser the Hamilton cast recording pronto.

Trail Mix – Chuck Hawthorne

first_imgCH – If you want to hear every word and every note, one of the last listening rooms is the Cactus Cafe on the UT campus. That’s one hell of a storied room. If you want to kick your heels up at a honky tonk, try The Broken Spoke or Giddy Ups. Somewhere in between are The Saxon Pub and Continental Club. The Paramount Theater is the place to catch the big acts. BRO – Best place for hunting vinyl? CH – You’ll have a hell of a good time if you can catch Walt Wilkins & The Mystiqueros in town. They’re not afraid to have fun, and the songs . . . well, you’ll see. CH – Try this. Check out Mystery Monday, hosted by Christine Albert, with her mystery guest, at El Mercado. Then cruise over to Donn’s Depot for the post-show soiree with Chris Gage behind the keys. It’s tradition. There’s something about songwriters from Texas that sets them apart from their contemporaries from around the country. And be sure to listen to “Such Is Life (C’est La Vie),” alogn with tunes from Steve Goodman, The Steel Wheels, Giri & Uma Peters, and many more on this month’s Trail Mix. BRO – Local music hero? BRO – Local band our readers should know about? CH – Matt’s El Rancho. You can’t beat the Tex-Mex food. A lot of deals have gone down there, music and other wise. I’ve heard LBJ held court there back in the day. “Amarillo Wind” and “I Will Fight No More Forever” are two of the finest songs I have heard all year. BRO – Favorite local distillery? CH – Out of town guests usually want to go to the Texas Chili Parlor for a Mad Dog Margarita, a la “Dublin Blues,” the Guy Clark song. We’re forced to take them there. You know, just being good hosts. It’s a tough duty. CH – Desert Door Distillery. They make a sotol that’ll make alliteration impossible. BRO – Favorite outdoor adventure? CH – I don’t hunt vinyl much, but I’m partial to Waterloo Records. I discovered Waterloo and credit cards around the same time. That was a mighty dangerous combination. Catch an indoor performance if you can. They have some great ones. BRO – Favorite local restaurant? Chuck Hawthorne certainly can keep company with all l of them. His sophomore release, Fire Out Of Stone, dropped last week. This collection of songs is as Texas as they come, rich with dusty boot honesty and echoes of the wide open Texas plains. BRO – Best place to catch a show? BRO – One place an out-of-towner should visit? CH – The patio at The Saxon Pub. Or camping with Libby Koch at Flathead Lake in Montana with a grizzly bear named Pucker. But the Austin thing to do is float the Guadalupe or Cormal Rivers with a cooler full of your favorite beverage. BRO – Favorite place for a post-show libation? CH – Ray Bonneville has a residence in Austin. If you can catch him in town, he’s the maestro that got me started. Folks like Guy Clark. Dale Watson. Ray Wylie Hubbard. Nanci Griffith. Ryan Bingham. And so many more. Their work seems to have an extra dash of kick ass and grit. If you find yourself in the Texas state capital, Chuck Hawthorne has served up a pretty solid hit list of places to visit. You can catch Chuck live at The Grove on August 4th. Later in August he has dates lined up all around Texas. For more info on those dates, as well as how you can grab a copy of Chuck’s new record, check out his website. Austin has long been on my list of places to visit, so I recently caught up with Chuck to let him dish on his hometown, one of the most musical cities in the country.last_img read more

12 financial tips loan officers must share with members

first_imgLoan officers should strive to be more than form pushers and evolve to be viewed as members’ financial advisors. When you have a loan origination system that provides a holistic view of your members’ financial data, you are more apt to position yourself as an advisor, increasing the opportunities to provide additional member services. Here are 12 tips to give members that will help put them into a better financial position:Set Realistic Budgets. Budgeting is a great way to establish benchmarks for spending and saving. But, they aren’t going to be useful if they’re set in a vacuum. Don’t forget to include emergency savings accounts, savings plans – both short and long term – for vacations, college funds, home purchases, and retirement.Track Your Budget. Budgets help members live within their means, but they can be difficult and time consuming to track. Maintaining a record of cash flow in a home is complex and detail oriented. This is where most of your best-laid plans go off the rails. Help members by introducing them to websites, software, and mobile apps that are designed to help with budgeting, such as mint.com or other Personal Financial Management (PFM) tools. 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more

Yobo reveals what he will bring to Eagles’ as assistant coach

first_imgAlthough many have criticized his appointment owing to lack of certification and qualification, the former Everton player believes he has what it takes to excel in the role.“I am bringing back that motivation. As a former captain, I’m bringing inspiration. I’ve been there and I’ve done it all,” he told former Super Eagles media officer Colin Udoh in a live Instagram chat monitored early in the week.“I was a fan of the team before I became an assistant coach, so I’ve seen from a fanatical point of view how people feel when they are watching the team. We as players, while playing, don’t notice these things but after my retirement, I’ve been a pundit, I’ve given my opinion about what should be done in the team.”Yobo also hinted that his 15 years of experience as a top professional will be vital for the team.“I’m bringing in my experience. Having over 15 years of consistency in my career, I think that is a lot. The good thing is that the spirit is going to improve. The 40-year-old was appointed Eagles’ assistant coach in February following the dismissal of Imama Amapakabo by the Nigeria Football Federation. Former Super Eagles captain and assistant coach Joseph Yobo has vowed to bring experience, motivation, and inspiration to the national team.Advertisement Loading… center_img Read Also: Messi urges Barcelona to offload teammate amid pay cut row“Having been a pundit and looking at this team, I think we can go a lot higher with the quality we have.”He hanged his boots in 2014 after leading Nigeria to her third continental title at the 2013 AFCON in South Africa.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do7 Universities In The World Where Education Costs Too Much8 Best 1980s High Tech Gadgets8 Weird Facts About Coffee That Will Surprise YouWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Fans Don’t Know What She Looks Like NowThailand’s 10 Most Iconic Landmarks7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way10 Gorgeous Asian Actresses No Man Can ResistHere Are The Top 10 Tiniest Mobile Phones On The Planet!last_img read more

Keane: Mourinho was a disgrace

first_img The Scot suggested at one point that the hardest part of the midfield enforcer was his tongue, a barb which produced a cutting response. A smiling Keane said: “Well, what do you think? I kick pretty hard. “I think it was a cheap dig. He was never critical when we were winning trophies and he was getting his new contracts, getting this after him, Sir this. “He was not pulling me or other players, saying, ‘Listen, you need to relax a bit’. That was the game and I appreciate the game. The game finished, but it was all the carry on afterwards.” While Keane moved on to Celtic to finish his playing days before himself heading into management, Ferguson rebuilt once again at Old Trafford before retiring in a blaze of glory, leaving the club in a period of transition which created issues for successor David Moyes that are currently being addressed by Louis van Gaal. However, Keane does not blame his former manager for what he left behind. He said: “I wouldn’t be critical of Ferguson, but sometimes when you’re leaving, it gives the manager a chance to make their own mark. He (Moyes) brought in one or two players, didn’t get the players clearly that he was after in the summer. “But I don’t think that’s the manager, it’s the chief executive (Ed Woodward) who can probably look at himself. I’m sure if you ask the chief exec, he will say, ‘Yeah, we missed out on a few deals’. There were two or three lined up that fell through, and they ended up getting one or two on transfer deadline day, (Juan) Mata in January. “But maybe the damage was done then. I was going to Old Trafford and there was a lot of negativity around. They got no momentum and it was as if David Moyes was snookered from the first few weeks. “That negativity can get into the dressing room, and that’s why I felt it was a weak dressing room. They should have dealt with that and the players should have done better. “I saw a number of games and whatever has gone on – politics, managers leaving, lack of players coming in – they should have done better and they did let him down, without a shadow of a doubt.” In the book, Keane talks candidly about his issues with alcohol and anger, and the mistakes he has made during his career to date, and it has proved a cathartic exercise. However, asked if it has been hard work being Roy Keane at times, and if he now likes himself more, he replied with a smile: “That’s a bit heavy. I’m contented and comfortable with who I am, yeah.” Roy Keane has warned Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho he would be “knocked out” if he tried to shake hands before the final whistle in Sunday league football. Press Association “I’ve seen him doing it to other managers, it is a disgrace. The game is still going on. You wouldn’t do that on a Sunday morning, you would get knocked out.” But while Mourinho found himself in the firing line, it was Keane’s former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson upon whom the spotlight fell as Keane discussed the falling-out between the pair as his time at Old Trafford drew to a close in 2005. The relationship between the two men deteriorated beyond the point of no return with the then United captain’s infamous MUTV interview and his reference to Ferguson’s involvement with the syndicate which owned racehorse Rock of Gibraltar helping to bring matters to a head. Keane, who insisted he only ever had ” five, six” one-to-one talks with the Scot during his 12 and a half years at United, was nevertheless not afraid to have his say, but admitted other managers were intimidated by Ferguson. He said: “I think a lot of managers would probably be intimidated by him, probably bow to him. I think a lot of managers are heavily influenced by him, of course. “I think (Everton boss Roberto) Martinez reckons he was misquoted a few years ago (saying) that Ferguson had his disciples. He obviously does. “When a manager takes players away from being on loan – I think it was Preston when Ferguson was manager – when his son (Darren) got the sack, and, all of a sudden, the players are coming away on loan.” Ferguson used his own autobiography, published last year, to settle his own scores with Keane and Beckham among those to come in for criticism, a move described as “ridiculous” by the Irishman. Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert refused to take Portuguese’s hand as he prepared to head down the tunnel before the end of his side’s 3-0 defeat by the Blues at Stamford Bridge on September 27, and his assistant Keane’s reaction was even more withering. Asked about the incident as he launched his new autobiography, The Second Half, in Dublin on Thursday afternoon, Keane said: “It’s disgraceful. last_img read more
