Ep: 188: Heavy Lies the Lampshade (DS9 S1E10)

| 0 comments

When an extremely droopy Tony Robbins convenes a group of Ferengi economic minds, scheming for profit in the Gamma Quadrant is their top priority. But when he chooses Quark as his successor, the bartender is thrust from his comfortable place behind the scenes into a spotlight that proves dangerous. Where are the eyes supposed to go? Why would a Vulcan steal homework from a Ferengi? What are the chances that Rom has a nice apartment? It’s the episode that turns on Find My Friends!

No terrorist got James this week! Nnekay went to an avant guard Bill Murray live performance and apparently the hipsters of San Francisco were drunkenly not hear for it. Also did Bill Murray set up an awkwardly racist caricature, pro confederacy moment? Nnekay's got the side eyes ready. The Golden Globes nominations are in and we've been snubbed, and by we, we mean POC's. Still so many white nominations! James is perplexed with all the Black excellence on TV from Queen Sugar, to Atlanta, to She's Gotta Have It, which brings up a great discussion. Spike Lee has updated his 80's classic of a young Black woman who doesn't have her shit together, queerness, sexuality, and feminism. And would She's Gotta Have It be more embraced by the feminist community if it were starring and written by a white woman like Leah Dunham? Let's continue our conversation about PrEP! What is it? How does it work? What is the debate? Why are some for it, and some against it? What is the fear or celebration? And who has access to it? And we have some alarming info about infection rates amongst young folks. Apparently Nnekay is the Chancellor/President of School of Don't Trust A Bitch. Nnekay's got all the tips of what to watch for when on the net, some of what you're reading is paid content known as Native Advertisement, which is growing in our media in crazy ways. Nnekay's got it's origins through advertorials, banner ads, and to sponsored content, and how it's growing, and doesn't seem to be going away. How will this impact our media sources and their credibility? How can you protect yourself when in information land? And Charles sit down or go home!

When diplomats from the Gamma Quadrant head straight past a good premise, they wind up in Quark’s bar. But when the Ferengi act like Ferengi, the stakes are raised for the staff of DS9 in the worst way possible. Are the Wadi elves or sharks?

It’s the episode that is paid for with swag from a natural history museum gift shop.
