Nobody likes to hear about their favorite artists dying but it worsens when that artist is young and full of potential. Amy Winehouse was a songstress who transcended many of her peers by channeling the greats with her powerful voice. She was in tuned with hip hop, not an elitist who shunned it – one of her songs “fuckery” was even dedicated to Nas, that’s how down she was and she did a collaberation remix of “I’m no Good” with Hall favorite Ghostface Killah. I say all that to show how much she embodied my two favorite musical genres of rap and jazz, she was my soundtrack and I was one of her fans who was hoping she could kick her demons and deliver a 3rd album. Today’s loss is another reminder to all of you out there who think that you are smarter and… [Read more]

I think it was on Enterprise (the newest in the long line of Star Trek series) that first brought this phenomenon to light for me. T’Pol, a super intelligent and advanced Vulcan female became sub-Commander on the ship despite the racial tension with her human crewmen. The most tension she had came from her Captain Archer who had a deep prejudice with her people after they robbed his father of the honor of space exploration. T’Pol and Archer were always at it but as the show went on their rivalry turned into mutual respect and then shifted towards some hardcore sexual tension. Soon T’Pol knew Archer’s most intimate secrets and he hers having to aid her on private missions and council her as one of her only friends. I can recall yelling at Archer to jump that sexy little nymph whenever she would come into… [Read more]

If you’re a man that loves women and you have a pulse, you need to go ahead and set your calendar for September 22nd. Why? Well it’s when all sorts of hawte will be on ABC shooting up the screen and fogging up your glasses. No this isn’t a bait and switch but being that it’s ABC we had better show up en masse to make sure that this show stays on the air or it won’t see 5 episodes, trust me! What show? Charlie’s Angels, thats what show – this time a little less 70’s era Lily white with the inclusion of the beautiful Annie Ilonzeh as Kate. That’s if you like sweet milk chocolate, for the boys craving some bright-haired Aussie sunshine you can check out Rachael Taylor as Abby Sampson (she played the hot blonde nerd on Transformers 2), and for the… [Read more]

I lived in Orlando during the frenzy of media looking for little Caylee Anthony in July 2008.  I cussed at my TV when they would break into the Young and the Restless for updates on the fact that they did not find her. I watched Nancy Grace for the first time in my life since it appeared that she was the only person who dug deeper into why Casey Anthony would wait 31 days to let someone know her daughter was missing. As the months went on, I became very familiar with the case and its intricacies surrounding the whole dysfunction that was the Anthony family. The lying, the stealing, the incest, the abuse, a missing baby daddy, and the little innocent cutie pie placed in the middle of it.  When it came time for the trial to start at the beginning of June 2011,… [Read more]

Twittercide – when you destroy or come close to destroying your career, character and relationships by tweeting offensive vitriol in 140 characters or less. This week the awful game Duke Nukem Forever came out and was lambasted by game review sites all over the internet. One spaz by the name of Jim Redner who owns The Redner Group that once represented 2K Games (the company that released Duke Nukem) took it upon himself to commit Twittercide through the following tweet: “Too many went too far with their reviews… we r reviewing who gets games next time and who doesn’t based on today’s venom” Well needless to say Jimmy’s attempt at a blacklisting rant backfired and his little company was dropped by 2K Games about as fast as it took him to click “tweet”… then came a mile long apology letter from him to try and… [Read more]

R-Kelly did a video where he hid out in a man’s closet with a loaded gun after sleeping with his wife and America ate it up as entertainment. Rihanna kills a man who violently rapes her on her music video and the country jumps to cut her throat with “how dare you”. I have one question, is it really all about the kids or is it that she’s a chick with a gun that bothers people so much? Is it apples to oranges when I wonder why the pedobear R-Kelly is applauded for music video violence while Rihanna is getting tarred and feathered? I’m asking you parents out there because it is the same ideology of “what about the kids!” that led to over 30 bitter comments on the Axe Ball Cleaner Commercial that I posted on here back in January of 2010. Do we… [Read more]

Sources have confirmed that Wrestling legend Randy “Macho Man” Savage has died from a car accident after suffering a heart attack behind the wheel. No doubt your timelines, Facebooks and Twitters will be flooded with jokes about the business, cocaine and Miss Elizabeth but the Hall remembers the iconic superstar who could cut a promo like nobody else and ignite the ring with that flying elbow that seemed to touch the stars. People die and our heroes are not immortal, but Savage will be eternally remembered as one of the men that made Wrestling such a big deal for all of us kids. It was Savage that inspired us to wear fancy shades, flex with confidence and drop the elbow on our playmates. The last time I thought about Savage was after seeing him in the commercial for the new WWE Superstars game. I know… [Read more]

So I’m checking out this abortion of a reality show called “Mob Wives” when the baby rat of Sammy Gravano announces that she’s on the show to promote her new book about “the life”. Just a while ago I get word that Lamar Odom’s ex is writing a tell-all book about he and his current wife cheating on her… what the hell is going on here? Who is it that reads all of these books being written by ex housewives, ex jump-offs, and ex transvestite hookers? Talk about hive-mind, if it’s one positive thing that can be said about Karrine “Superhead” Steffans, it’s that she wrote her tell-all memoirs back when it wasn’t the “cool thing” to do. Now every time I turn around some broke rapper, video vixen, friend or sex slave is become an overnight author. As a book reader who finds it… [Read more]
