Daily Dose: 11/1/16 Bill Cosby is trying to hide behind his impaired vision

Oh, you think you had a cool Halloween costume? I’ll bet you do. Plenty celebrities did, but you know who had the best? None other than our own Brent Lewis’ son, who looked amazing as Kit Kat Chance The Rapper. So dope.

The Bill Cosby trial will soon be underway. He arrived today for a pretrial hearing, looking like a blind old man because, effectively, that’s what he is at this point. The big thing at question for this trial is whether or not Cosby’s other accusers will be allowed to testify against him. The longtime television star’s lawyers are arguing that because he apparently can’t see, they shouldn’t be allowed to speak. That gross irony of that defense is not lost on anyone, considering what he’s accused of doing. ABC News reports the latest.

I’ve got a lot of friends who are hysterical about the election. Between group texts, online chats and otherwise, there are a lot of people who refuse to believe that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will not be the president-elect next Wednesday until they actually see it with their own eyeballs. Between polls and predictions, everyone’s head is spinning about what is a realistic forecast and what isn’t. Luckily, FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver is around to solve that problem. On Tuesday, he explained how the odds of an electoral college popular vote split are in fact increasing.

We really need the Taylor Swift and Drake rumors to be true. If for no other reason that these two could make an album together that would instantly go double platinum just off the strength of both fan bases. Don’t get it twisted, Tay Tay’s got bangers. Perhaps most importantly, if and when the two broke up, they’d both then make albums that would also do numbers. From a music fan standpoint, this is a match made in heaven. Listen to what Viceland‘s Desus & Mero have to say about the matter.

It’s all over for Ray Allen. To be quite honest, I didn’t exactly realize that this wasn’t official for some time. But, the man who initially made me cry as a high schooler back in 1995 when he hit a shot to win the Big East Championship game over Allen Iverson is certainly the greatest NBA shooter of all time. People tend to forget that he used to be a guy that could dunk on you if you didn’t look out. Now, it’s just a countdown to the Hall of Fame.

Coffee Break: I’m always looking for new places to hang out and work. Sometimes that means a cafe, other times that means a library or a reading room. Or, if I’m lucky, some combination of both that provides a reasonable environment to concentrate. If they had listening clubs like this where I live, I’d be there every single day.

Snack Time: If you’ve never heard of a fungus called Devil’s Fingers, you’re in for a treat. Check out this tremendous time lapse, paired with some pretty crazy music that will make you feel like you might have gotten closer to hell.
