This blog will be about whatever suits my fancy. Chances are, it will concentrate on media misrepresentations of the American "Black community", Black politics, politics in general, and whatever else I want to mentally masturbate about.
The calls came as soon as Shaquille O'Neal decided to retire, all wanting to hire one of the NBA's greatest entertainers.
TNT's "Inside the NBA" studio show had been O'Neal's favorite as a player, so the choice was easy.
Get ready for the Big Analyzer, Big Commentator, or whatever other nickname he takes in the next phase of his career.
O'Neal agreed Thursday to a multiyear deal with Turner Sports to become an analyst on its NBA coverage, where he will fold his 7-foot-1 frame into the fourth chair on the TNT set alongside Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson.
"I'm just going to try to make it more fun than it already is," O'Neal said during a conference call.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Leslie Nielsen, who went from drama to inspired bumbling as a hapless doctor in "Airplane!" and the accident-prone detective Frank Drebin in the "Naked Gun" comedies, has died. He was 84.
His agent John S. Kelly says Nielsen died Sunday at a hospital near his home in Ft. Lauderdale where he was being treated for pneumonia.
Why the hate on Tyler Perry for bringing a play done in the 70s to the big screen? Perry did the screen play, with collaboration of the original author and, he claims, he couldn't do the movie without putting in "one good man."
And I'm not even going to get into how he has built wealth AND entertainment power by catering to "us folks." I don't get into the male bashing, but I'm just saying I think it's over the top. Don't blame Perry, blame the author of the play and book.
A world is full of people who can master only one fundamental element. A person is born who has the ability to master all "fundamental elements" but that person is born into a group of people who master one element. When that person dies, he/she is born again to another group of people who master a different element. The person grows up and learns, again, to master all elements, and the Avatar line continues.
That's multiculturalism with a heavy dose of Earth worshiping.
I LOVED the anime series and look forward to seeing the movie.
Last year, around this date, my cousin died from prostate cancer. His family had a strong history of prostate cancer so i guess he was high risk, but one of the things he did on a regular basis was to eat charcoal grilled chicken.
I can't get that off my mind along with the research that shows a link between charcoal cook food and prostate cancer.
So, I apologize for YEARS of mocking against the gas grillers. :-)
At first I was mad that Marvel Comics "sold out" to Disney, but then when I thought about it, it made perfect sense.
For Disney, they get the fast track to obtaining the rights to the Marvel Comics characters AND some of the talent Marvel has.
For Marvel, they get the deep pockets of Disney and greatly increases their chances of survival in a "new world" where reading of newspapers and magazines are down. My assumption is, in this new age, comic book sales are drastically down as well.
Her performance at the White House Correspondent's Dinner was probably more appropriate for her club act than for the dinner. But even with that, the "cries" over her comments about Rush Limbaugh are way out of order.
If the same people didn't complain when Rush Limbaugh "joked" that heroine users should OD and die, then they have no standing to complain now.
More thoughts in bullet point format. Are you ready?
Am I the only person thinking that it normally takes a long time before "road work" projects are started after the work has been approved? Design. Public comments. Environmental evaluation. Surveying. Permits... Letting the contract. So, by the time the road projects start, it may be "too late".
More than half of troubled borrowers face losing their homes even six
months after lenders have eased their monthly payments, one regulator
said, a discouraging sign for reversing a tide of foreclosures.
"The results, I confess, were somewhat
surprising," said John Dugan, the Comptroller of the Currency, who
oversaw the study and spoke on a panel with fellow regulators.
Bair, the chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp, said that aid
efforts to borrowers were falling short while another regulator said
Washington may be wasting money on foreclosure prevention.
Have you ever loaned money to someone who just doesn't pay people back? When you do, do you REALLY expect to get paid back? If you do, you are a sucka.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta was really different from The Real Housewives of Orange County. The former seemed to be about a culture of conspicuous consumption while the latter seemed to be about people living in their culture of having money. With that in mind, this didn't come as a surprise but I hope this is not as is being reported and assumed. Even so, she really has no class.
I'm bored with politics, but this is just straight up gangsta. Dollar Bill Jeffer$on has NOTHING on this dude!
