Hard Choices / Re: Hard Choices: Lauryn Hill v Mary J Blige

Mary J.

Sure... Lauryn has her beat hands-down in talent and range, but I'm not digging or rewarding her chronic lateness regardless of the excuses. If you can't or won't do your job, get into another line of work.

Michael Jackson by a mile.

Whitney, Cash, and Marley would also be on my list.

Hudlin's Huddle / Re: The House of Hudlin Family Tree
« on: January 29, 2016, 03:45:08 pm »
This is another one of those posts - the entire series, actually - that you need to share a photo on Facebook and attach the link to it like you did with the manifesto. Actually on the picture, I'd suggest putting "The House of Hudlin - Part I." (Mostly, that's just to make sure no one else snags your picture.)

You may need to adjust the caption a little. Something like this, though I'd suggest making the intro even more concise:

My success is built on an incredible history of heroes who have achieved great things in the face of oppression.  This is the first of a series of posts about the Hudlin family.

I could not tell this story without the extraordinary efforts of my uncle, Richard Hudlin, who tirelessly researched our family history long before it was cool to search out oneís roots.  Most of what I will be recounting is based on his research and writing.

Peter Hudlinís Underground Railroad Station

by Dr. Richard A. Hudlin, Senior Fellow, Center for Historical Research

There is a considerable body of literature on the underground railroad, but to the best of my knowledge few sites have been documented in St. Louis. My great-great-great-great grandfather ran one of them.

Peter Hudlin was born in Virginia in 1828. His wife, a Cherokee born Nancy Jane Rutledge, was born in Kentucky in 1833. According to the Hudlin Family oral history and other sources, great-grandfather Peter Hudlin was a conductor on the underground railroad. For example, in 1976 Josephine Lockhart wrote:

"The human cargo would arrive at Peterís home in crates. He would uncrate the run-away slaves, feed them and provide space for them to rest in his basement until nightfall. He would then recrate them and under cover of darkness, load the crates onto a wagon and drive across the river to one of the two major underground routes northward near Alton, Illinois."

Ben Affleck as Batman doesn't bother me. I don't know about his Bruce Wayne. I might buy it if that is after he already figured out who Clark Kent was.

Henry Cavill has it nailed.

Wonder Woman, I have absolutely nothing to go on except for her two non-speaking seconds.

Lex Luthor as the flamboyant eccentric socially-awkward nerd, I'm not buying at ALL. Yes, I liked that line about being psychotic, but... Dude comes across too much as Carrot-Top. Only perfect Lex Luthor IMO has been Clancy Brown and that was animated.

That Sup/Bat exchange when they see WW for the first time made me groan.

That said... I'm still excited to see this.

Sorry, Man. Power Rangers is not worthy enough to be in this line up. Replace it with Voltron and we'll talk.

The answer, regardless, is Godzilla.

I'll go with The Jeffersons. They remind me of my parents, except much richer.

Can't speak on Green Hornet. I've never seen an episode! (Yes. I know. I'm ashamed.)

Batman with all its camp and BAMS had Eartha Kitt (aka the REAL Catwoman) and Batgirl... and I'll go ahead and give Adam West props, too.
