There have been a lot of unfounded rumors floating around the internet that smooth, British, black woman panty-soaker, actor Idris Elba may be in the running to play the MI6 super spy James Bond. While this could do wonders for the man’s career I do think that he should become his own super, cool, ladies man via another more original vehicle. How long has it been since we saw a really cool black guy in the title role of a movie, scamming on chicks of every color, thwarting evil, and representing manhood in all its glory? No, no, no not Undercover Brother! I would like more black roles not blackened roles… Think Jason Statham with a deeper tan, or Jason Bourne with a little melanin. Black Dynamite is 100% that guy, but his movie was a comedy aimed at blaxpoitation fanbois like myself and didn’t have the kind… [Read more]
Lady Dragon Halle Berry is a very likable, pretty, and pragmatic woman when interviewed. In magazine spreads and in front of the rolling cameras she is goddess-level bad! But recently when I see her name on places all over the internet it is likely to be accompanied by the word crazy. Halle’s life has been an open book to the world for a long time. She has somehow become the face of the beautiful but crazy stereotype due to her failed relationships and that one incident where she hit someone with her car and kept driving (tsk-tsk-tsk). Halle is a realistic woman when asked about all of this in interviews and she knows very well how she’s perceived and sees her man issues as a lack of good judgment on her part when it comes to mates. Halle on her bad choices in men: “My… [Read more]
Do you know who controls whether or not a man and a woman has an affair? Easy answer – both parties do, at least when the situation doesn’t involve slavery or sexual abuse. So it confuses me to no end when I hear women blame Wyclef Jean for the disaster in life that is Lauryn Hill. This pattern of finger pointing is something that people have been doing for quite some time now and it is not only unfair to the person blamed but shows a dangerous bit of tribalism displayed by the accuser. The pattern I outlined in the intro is part of the reasoning for the Wyclef blame and we can mix in Twilight’s Kristen Stewart because she now suffers from the same public scrutiny that Wyclef has for all these years since the Fugees as a group had split. People pick the… [Read more]
Is drama a necessary component for sports nowadays or should the aspect of winning and losing be enough? I think of this past Olympics and how viewers were force-fed a meal of Phelps vs Lochte, Douglas vs Wieber, and many other imagined rivalries and wondered if it was really necessary for us to enjoy the games. The 2012 Olympics was a grand spectacle of wonderment but there was so much petty, unnecessary drama! In the days before the Internet and instant news, sports fans would huddle around the television to watch the big game and outside of what happens right there in front of them there wasn’t anything else that mattered. Nowadays we have athletes that are judged more for their off field antics than their actual accomplishments on the field. We know who just got divorced, who’s dating a super model, who partied the… [Read more]
“I’m like, ‘Who’s calling my name?’ And then I look up. It was my dad and his friend, and I haven’t seen him in a while,” Gabby said. “They were holding up the flag. And I almost felt like bawling. I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh, Dad!’” When we watched tiny Gabby Douglas take gold in the all-around competition of gymnastics in London 2012, we were routinely reminded that her journey there was a rough one. The focus has rightfully been on her strong, single mother who was willing to take a chance in letting her child live with another family in order to realize her gymnastic potential and a heart as strong as a bull that allowed her to focus and keep it together. But nowhere in the narrative was her father mentioned and it led to many people assuming that it was the… [Read more]
If you are a socially awkward guy that has issues talking to women, you should check out The Amazing Spiderman. No worries on the movie sucking as it is actually top notch, so hesitation is unnecessary – I just want you to see Peter Parker’s swagger. In the original Spiderman starring Tobey Maguire, the character of Peter Parker was an overly nice smart kid whose childhood love interest was a red-haired girl-next-door (Mary Jane Watson) played by Kristen Dunst. Peter allowed his much cooler, richer, better looking best friend to take this average looking girl away from him, while he just waited for her to choose. Many guys do the same thing in life then end up upset when the woman chooses the better package deal. The new Peter Parker is socially awkward, but unlike the former he is dark in a way that works… [Read more]
Smiles are amazing aren’t they? They can warm you up to someone, invite you in, hide malicious intent, you name it.

Our 10 Favorite Female Celebrity Smiles… Our 10 Favorite Male Celebrity Smiles… So did we get everybody that crossed your mind? Let us know who we may have missed in the commentary. Smiles are all that and for some of these people it has made their career.
Lady Dragon Lolo Jones volunteered information about her virginity on a recent HBO show and the news went immediately viral. Suddenly every blogger and journalist alive had a solution to the poor virgin’s plight and was offering up articles as to who she should sleep with, what she should do to cure her virgin disease and all sorts of other nonsense. Frankly it was disgusting and a bit of a shock to me seeing that many of these articles came from magazines that prided themselves as being “for women”. Look, it isn’t so much that it is none of our business if an older woman (Lolo is 29 yrs. old) hasn’t been deflowered; it is the fact that we now assume that she wants our advice on getting laid. Why is virginity such a bad thing? Is a good looking virgin such a bad thing?… [Read more]
