It’s all the same damn show!

February 18, 2016 Leave a comment

Lucifer (TV Series 2016)Back in my not-so-glorious university days I enjoyed following the Sandman graphic novels by Neil Gaiman. So I was rather intrigued to learn that one of the comic book’s spinoff characters was getting his own television series. Lucifer premiered on FOX on January 25 of this year. Mind you, I’m not all that familiar with this DC character’s story line (I know enough of the source material to know that John Constantine should look more like Sting than Keanu Reeves). However, I was disappointed to learn that the show would depart from its unique stories for a more procedural cop formula. Read more…

Star Wars vs. Star Trek

Damn, it’s been a while since I posted anything. What was the last thing I ranted about? Something about a girl who could fly? Then again it’s not like I blog on a consistently frequent basis anyways. Life has this pesky tendency of, you know, happening. Anyways, a lot of shit has happened since then. Caitlyn Jenner won “Woman of the Year” some how, we lost David Bowie, it’s now 2016, and Donald Trump is still leading the polls disturbingly enough. Oh, and something else occurred too…

Can’t say I approve of the new Supergirl series

May 15, 2015 Leave a comment

supergirl-tv-series-actress-640x360So we all know how DC has been desperately trying to catch up with Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. They’re shoehorning in all sorts of characters in Dawn of Justice and already releasing a Suicide Squad flick, chalk full of even more characters with separate back stories who probably won’t be that well established. Not to mention shows like Arrow and The Flash that are kicking off a universe of their own. Read more…

ford3So here we are again. The next episode. Rob Ford back in the news, though some might say he never left.  As I’ve previously wrote, this man is a made for TV movie waiting to happen.  This week Ford found himself back in the spotlight having some explaining to do after the alleged “Crack Video” was prematurely surfaced by police chief Bill Blair.

God bless Miss America 2014!

missI never really cared much for beauty pageants. Although covering Miss Black Beauty Canada 2013 a few weeks ago might have had my curiosity, Miss America 2014 got my attention. Twenty-four-year old Nina Davuluri, who had also reigned as Miss New York, was the first winner of East Indian descent to be crowned Miss America this past Sunday. Read more…

Looks like “Stand Your Ground” is being used to justify killing blacks

So with George Zimmerman now free to walk the streets, many Americans and those abroad have exploded with rage at the verdict. Despite the fact that a 17-year-old  boy was murdered for minding his own business and buying skittles, and Zimmerman claimed self-defense even though he was the obvious aggressor, the prosecution fumbled the ball  in what should have been a straight away touch down.

The real Booty Warrior

July 22, 2011 Leave a comment

Now we’ve all heard those horror stories about prison, how pretty boys are relegated to being wives, how blow jobs are used as currency, and pretty much anything made popular by the hit TV show Oz. And  some of you who just got out may be more familiar with these stories than you’d like. Here’s an excerpt from the MSNBC show Lockup, where Fleece Johnson, who oddly bares a resemblance to Samuel L. Jackson,  makes a freshly incarcerated inmate’s worst nightmare all too real.  Read more…
