For the next 2 weeks
Please excuse me
I will be riding

Vox Populi / President sh*thole
« on: January 12, 2018, 02:44:15 am »
Some Hispanic Congressman
Says the actions to date
Of President sh*thole
Are most suitable
For one thing

Latest Flicks / "The Greatest Showman"...The Other American
« on: January 03, 2018, 08:19:40 pm »
I have not seen this movie nor was I attracted to it
But a local news story in Philly caught my eye
Saying PT Barnum made his first money
From an old slave woman he owned
Whatever happened to the saying
No Blacks literally means
No America

Latest Flicks / The Shape of Water, Monsters & Love
« on: December 17, 2017, 02:28:21 pm »
Except for the blood, gore and sex
This takes the 1950's monster
And transforms into love
A chick flick for sure
But a little more

Even Christmas is Fake News, Fake Facts and Fake History
The buy one get one free sale of a Blue Eyed God
With springtime transformed into solstice
Yes here within the infinity of facts
Fake news is a woven reality
But that is not the point
The point, the goal
One Civilization
One Earth

Latest Flicks / "Quest" Beyond A Philly Ghetto
« on: December 05, 2017, 07:59:39 pm »
I had seen more Blacks than usual at the Ritzy theater this past weekend
Not knowing that I was passing up an invitee to the Sundance film fest
I was there to see a rendition of the Don McLean song about suicide
But then via accident of a news story I stumble upon the ghetto
And having no idea it was a Q&A night with movie principles
I rushed to see Philadelphia, and discovered non-fiction
It was all ghetto from the Rap music to the police
It's ghetto humanized, well, by a little girl
Maybe it's greatest display is growth
This non-fiction documentary
Covers in fact 8+ years
But beyond humanity
For the ghetto girl
There's growth
In a man's

Latest Flicks / Loving Vincent's Starry Night
« on: December 02, 2017, 04:46:48 pm »
A rather refreshing animated display
Into a fictionalized retelling
Of Vincent Van Gogh
The fiction fades
But a reality
The song


Latest Flicks / Three Billboards...Signs From Within
« on: November 24, 2017, 07:38:06 pm »
I haven't seen such storytelling, almost never
Beyond seeing Woody grow into mid-life
As I awaited the advertised comedy
There arose a greater gravity
Amid the fading laughs
And a growing fear
Of a reflection
From within

Vox Populi / Et Tu Charlie...A Rose By Any Other Name
« on: November 22, 2017, 02:30:56 am »
Recently to make a political/racial point
I pointed to a Charlie Rose interview with Chris Rock
The stature of Charlie Rose instantly gave my argument credibility
Now beyond Sugar Daddies and paid dates a new gravity has consumed us all
The politics of Sex can't save America from last November's votes
As we brace ourselves for more tales of ultimate sin
We still overlook a white lie from 1968
"My best friend is Black"
"Heaven help us all"
Stevie Wonder

Latest Flicks / "LBJ", Woody Grows Old
« on: November 18, 2017, 02:27:56 pm »
Woody Harrelson wants to make a statement, I suppose
But I don't get the Rob Reiner part though
Baby Boomers and the Kennedys
Time to grow up

Latest Flicks / "Lady Bird"...Silver Linings
« on: November 18, 2017, 02:15:47 pm »
My main attraction
Was good reviews on NPR
Confused I went to see Woody's "LBJ"
Finally made it to "Lady Bird" of Sacramento
It almost made me feel like I was back in Philadelphia
There remains a "Silver Lining" in the many playbooks of "Love"

Latest Flicks / Suburbicon: Pristine View
« on: October 29, 2017, 01:52:22 am »
Suburbicon was all that I had hoped for it to be and more
Far removed from the rural world of "Fargo"
Succeeding past "Falling Down"
Even the direction
Gets Out
A gem

Acting / Idris Elba...Say It Ain't So
« on: September 28, 2017, 08:07:08 pm »
In the "Dark Tower" and now "A Mountain Between Us"
It seems Mr. Elba who now has his pick of roles
Seems to be steering for Black savior
I don't think Gunga Din
Is gonna cut it
Ask Sammy

Other Comics / Batman & Bill (gets the Finger)
« on: September 19, 2017, 07:45:03 pm »
Bob Kane
Is credited as THEE creator
But in a touching story a new truth is discovered
Bill Finger was the main source of inspiration for the Dark Knight...Batman
Holy BS Batman
Not you

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
