Bernie Mac 1957-2008

How much we take true stars for granted. When I first heard of Bernie Mac’s illness, I thought he would bounce back. You have to be fantastically resilient to stay in the business of show for so many years. I thought he was stronger than any disease. But I guess none of us are. When I heard over the...

I Love Nas!

Nas is speaking out and going after Fox News. We all know that they are the very definition of biased journalism, and until now everyone has just accepted it as an unchangeable fact. But now Nas is doing something about it. Besides his new album featuring songs about Bill O’Reily and the Fox News... Sign in to see full entry.

CNN Black in America Part II: My Reactions Part II

The one thing I didn’t care for was the interview with the guy from the Cosby Show, Joseph C Phillips. He was so ignorant to the black experience. Or maybe he was just blind. While I do realize that selling drugs and shooting people is wrong, you also have to take into account that the system has... Sign in to see full entry.

CNN Black in America Part II: My reactions Part I

While I didn’t enjoy this segment as much as the first one, I did think it was informative. However, it was also quite predictable. They talked about what I expected: crack, deadbeat fathers and hip hop among other things. Surprisingly though they didn’t blame all of blacks problems on one thing,... Sign in to see full entry.

Black in America Part I: My reactions part II

Of course this documentary wasn’t all depressing. There was a family featured on the program, they had six kids and all of them went or were planning on going to college. The family had a white patriarch from many generations back. That isn’t uncommon in this country. I think you’d be hard pressed... Sign in to see full entry.

Black in America Part I: My reactions part I

I wrote out my response to this documentary, and realized it was a little long so I'm breaking it up. Nobody wants to read a long a$$ blog entry, atleast I don't. I watched this documentary special last night on CNN and found it to be very interesting. They touched on a lot of subjects affecting the... Sign in to see full entry.

DH is going Back to the Furture

When Desperate Housewives comes back this fall, the show will permanently take place 5 years in the future. We got a little preview of this in the season finale, but I had no idea this is where they were taking the show permanently at the time. However, the time jump has been confirmed by ABC execs,...

Emmy Reactions Part II: Actors and Actresses

Can I start out by saying that Glenn Close has no competition for best Actress in a drama. She brought her A-game to the FX series “Damages” and I really want to see her honored for this performance. For best actor in a drama, I’d really like to see Bryan Cranston win for Breaking Bad. I thought... Sign in to see full entry.

Emmy Reactions Part I: Shows

Best Drama Series is the category with the steepest competition, in my opinion. Lost, Mad Men and Damages were all great shows this season. I was especially impressed with Lost because it was starting to get frustrating and boring. But they really redeemed themselves this season. Damages and Mad Men... Sign in to see full entry.

“Dirt” is Buried

So Dirt will not be back next season and I can’t say I’m surprised. I so wanted this show to be the next Nip / Tuck, a provocative look at our values as a society. I wanted Dirt to attack our quest for money and fame, the way Nip / Tuck attacked our pursuit of beauty and perfection at all costs. But... Sign in to see full entry.
