Latest Flicks / True To The Ghetto-fabulous
« on: September 17, 2017, 12:48:39 am »
The story was in fact a very good story and at a certain point, in the middle, I suddenly had a tear in my eye
But something was lost in the translation from the (popular) book to (non-advertised) movie
I only knew of it when it popped up on my Fandango list as made in Philly
With that said there was some intangible that fell short
Like the plot line was too rushed
Making Ghetto-Fabulous
Just ghetto
A book
By Terry Woods
"True To The Game"
Think I may buy the book

Books / "OJ" Copyrighted
« on: September 11, 2017, 03:28:06 pm »
I was just told I could not use the name "OJ Simpson" as part of a title for a book
I thought "OJ" fell under the public domain
If kept short of slander
Am I wrong?

A main character stutters
Hitchcock could master stutters
This movie couldn't master a clown

General Discussion / Eclipsed By Mother Nature
« on: September 10, 2017, 12:54:09 am »
My beliefs in Nature begin largely with Race, transformed by Paul Simon
And then that Genesis 2:17 stuff, I have come to respect Mother Earth
Paul Simon has a line, "The Northern and the Southern Hemispheres
Led me to see it in a non-racial ("black" and "white" at least) way
Simply put the global cultures, along a north and south divide
See the System of civilization and the rhythm of the Earth
Different in so many ways beginning with "Good Hair"
My boss, took "Eclipse Day" off to the Jersey shore
He told us he noticed the temperature change
At which point I then snapped my fingers
"How quickly Nature can flip the script"
From Good Hair to Bad Katrina
Too funny

Latest Flicks / Hit Man Walks 16 Blocks
« on: August 19, 2017, 02:21:23 pm »
The plot is the same as Mos Def in "16 Blocks"
But the theme is just out-right good fun
The quality is equal...or better
Not Academy level...but
It's entertaining
& Fun

And now Virginia, August 12, 2017 a question remains

Latest Flicks / Girls Trip To Parrrrrrtae'
« on: July 26, 2017, 12:17:02 am »
Saw the late show
They added a 11:25 AND 11:30 show
As the situation played out I went with my sister in Delaware
While I was trying to determine if Jada had a nose or eye job, my sister was laughing
And though I had to shake her awake at 12:35am, by the end I had a tad of water in my eyes
...You go girl

Vox Populi / Republicans Win Again (Atlanta/SC)
« on: June 21, 2017, 03:10:54 am »
Two more elections last night
And the Democrats still can't make a dent
As Republicans merely say Tax cut & Small Government
The best the Hippy/Black Democrats can say is ANTI-Republican
The Democrats still remain amazingly ignorant of PRO-Democrat
The Democrats to this day don't have a clue whatsoever
The suburban White female vote is number one
The Republicans have hated the PUBLIC
Since July the Second in 1964
PUBLIC Broadcast System
PUBLIC Infrastructure
PUBLIC Education

Vox Populi / Virgina, (DMV), Political Violence
« on: June 15, 2017, 02:43:35 am »
As most of you know by now a Democrat shot and injured a Republican at a baseball game
In the most American of scenarios, right down to the Negro saving the day
Yes this is America, complete with gun and bible in hand
Ignorant of a bigger truth, violence, we project
We had all best realize that violence
Obscures the big picture
NOTE: What role did government play
In the lives, jobs and maturity
Of the two Black guards
After all, it is DMV

Acting / ADAM WEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
« on: June 11, 2017, 04:39:01 pm »
I've been outta town in DMV for 36 hours
I am so surprised Adam West is gone
The 'Bat' display at Woolworths
The Batman of my youth
Where have you gone
Joe DiMaggio
Our nation.......

The James Comey testimony
Not only was a non-issue
But his biggest hit

In Philly we have a few "Artsy" theaters basically they're called the Ritz Theaters
Last Saturday, I shyed away from Richard Gere's latest"The Diner"
The two and a half stars were all the warning that I needed
So I chose "The Happiest Day In The Life Of Olli Maki"
Touted as based on a true story with four stars
The music played by the theater was nice
The Ritz played and named Bedouine
And her song "Solitary Daughter"
That said, the movie started
In spite of the sub-titles
It did hold my interest
It's a boxing story
Full of love

Ya didn't want to be Black

Sports Talk / The Three Point Shot in Chocolate City
« on: May 14, 2017, 06:56:53 am »
I don't follow basketball that much at all these days
Just waiting for the inevitable Golden Cleveland
But I was in a bar Friday night and on TV
Was an amazing one point ball game
The last 5-10 minutes, 1 point
Seven seconds left, 2 points
Then in one fluid motion
Wall made a shot
Three points
All net
