Bachelorette




The Bachelorette premiered Monday, if you don't know what the Bachelorette is it is the female companion to the Bachelor, a show in which a man chooses from a group of woman that is whittled down each episode until he is left with one woman that he presumably will marry. Well the show came on and I was looking to see if any black men were stupid enough to try out and sure enough there was one and predictably he was among the first eliminated. Black people please save your self the embarrassment and stick to shows which feature your own kind. No white man or woman is gonna marry you unless you are a supermodel or actress in the case of a white man or a million dollar athlete in the case of a white woman.

somewhere B.I.G and Tupac are laughing


Hip Hop mogul and bully "Suge" Marion Knight was knocked unconscious in a club and was photographed while out. I know it is only one knockout but I know it made a lot of people happy to see it the same way Paris's jailing perked up every body's day

Family Guy Spins Off Cleveland



A new spin-off of family guy is coming on starring Cleveland, Peter’s black neighbor and I am a little weary. I know the kind of humor MacFarlane employs and I can take a few black stereotype jokes but a whole show dedicated to them every week I could not stand. And is it me or are black jokes all the rage now, in several of my favorite shows black jokes are deployed frequently and I can laugh at myself but it is starting to feel like my childhood when I was subjected to those awful Tex Avery Tom and Jerry cartoons in which after every explosion you would cringe because there would be a person left standing in black face making a offensive joke, lets just hope those days are gone now.

american dad schoolhouse rock






Remember those old Schoolhouse Rock cartoons from the 80's. They were really fun and educational i can remember humming those tunes in school when i needed to know what an adverb or conjunction was. Well American Dad has done yet another parody of the cartoon with the Iran Contra scandal as the subject and it is as informative as the real Schoolhouse Rock cartoons. It is also sad to believe that no one was really punished for the illegal things that went on.

jacked at the pump


When I watched the movie Mad Max, Road Warrior I thought the concept of not having gas was a fantasy or at least not to be realized in my lifetime. With the gas prices spiking the way they are it seems to be a reality now. I never thought I would have to pay 5 dollars a gallon for gas. For all those people that compared gas to milk would you pay that much for a gallon of milk?

The joker

The Joker is one of the oldest and well known Batman villain's and maybe most popular. Several actors have portrayed him on the small screen and big screen and now the deceased Ledger takes a stab at it. I think his performance may be remembered as one of the best.

metal gear solid


I did not know anything about MetalGearSolid before I played the demo but when I played the game I was blown away. The game was very cinematic in its approach and the stealth element was new to me after playing Tombraider where you can go in guns blazing and survive if you had enough medipacks. Another interesting thing was the interaction with the colonel and other advisers through codec. The demo had me hooked and i went out and got the game and discovered a complex story filled with drama and twist and turns. Like Ratchet and Clank, Snake can hold an array of weapons, some real and some fake. Metal gear is on its last game now and I think the franchise is one of the most important in video game history, console history at the least.

Grand theft auto IV


Rockstar games has released Grand Theft Auto IV the next gen version of the series and it looks fantastic. Of course it already has attracted attention for being too realistic and violent. People just don't get that all video games are not for kids and that a large majority of gamers are over 20 years old. So parents if you have kids that are under 16 or are just too immature to handle the game then make sure they don't play it

calling all heroes




Ironman debuts in theaters today and by all accounts, from critics anyway it may be a good movie. I am just amazed how they were able to get the movie made after years of marvel not being able to make a decent comic adapted film now they cant seem to miss


The Incredible Hulk returns to the big screen with an all-new movie after the much-maligned version by director Ang Lee. Personally I liked the performances in Lee’s version although it did not have the action that a lot of comic fans wanted. I hope this version is superior and it should be with the cast lined up to star - Edward Norton, Tim Roth, William Hurt and Liv Tyler. Although Liv does not have the acting chops, she is competent
