Good Hair Gone Bad, News »

[30 Nov 2007 | 13 Comments | ]


So what if I had a crush on Gary Dourdan when he played Shazza on A Different World? And so what further if I still kind of have a crush on him when I see him on CSI? …

[30 Nov 2007 | 13 Comments | ]


Along the lines of things that no one needs to hear, my body has become a little more “womanly” in recent weeks and so I have been getting all kinds of extra leers from greasy dirty old men. It’s pretty …

Hip Hop Is Dead., White People Dancing, White People Is Funny. »

[30 Nov 2007 | 12 Comments | ]

Please just give this 30 seconds and you’ll see.

I kind of find it touching when white people refer to their butts as something to talk about and I think they were creative for this. But I don’t think they …

I know I’ve been completely delinquent (and I love the fact that y’all even noticed) but I have my reasons. Above all else, a lot of things have been disrupting my creative flow and ability to focus on writing. Believe …

I need to focus on some personal goals this week (as alluded to in the title of this post), so I’ll be taking a break from the blogosphere until after the holidays. Have a great one!

Bad Grammar, Our Shame, What the Eff? »

[14 Nov 2007 | 14 Comments | ]

I live in Philadelphia where there is no real public access television, otherwise I’m sure I’d have a show by now (speaking of which, what would you think about a Thembi radio podcast? I’m considering it). Since it’s all about …

Contest, Who is This? »

[12 Nov 2007 | 7 Comments | ]

I love watching you guys scramble like overachievers to answer these, so I’m going to try to do them more often in the hopes of someday trying to stump you. Don’t do a bunch of research trying to out-Thembi me, …

Most Memorable Episodes: Martin!

martin-show

Martin is the show that defined my high-school years and shaped my personal brand of comedy - we often forget how revolutionary it was at the time. Martin Lawrence didn't mind cussing, he didn't mind playing stereotypes, and he didn't mind intense physical comedy, which is what really made Martin a genuine success (until Gina left the show and it jumped the shark). My past Most Memorable Episodes" posts have had 5 episodes each, but for Martin I had a hard time narrowing things down so I had to add a few bonus clips. But the best part is that hundreds of episodes are available on YouTube for your viewing pleasure, so if you have time

While I was busy this week gathering those contest votes and packing my bags for Barbados with Michael, I stumbled across these links of interest:

Loyal Readers,

Behance is a cool new networking site for creative people where you can put your portfolio online and everything (I think of it as myspace for people who actually DO stuff minus the pervs). I’m entered in their …

I’m huge nerd, especially when it comes to grammar and graphical representations of things. Loyal WWTD reader John B sent me this hilariously geeky site that makes graphs out of hip-hop stuff. Some examples:

At Least They're Not Black..., What the Eff?, Yipes! »

[7 Nov 2007 | 17 Comments | ]

It’s no big deal to get a little sip or smoke on, but I do draw the line somewhere. Reports of people using the fumes from human waste to get high have been circulating since 1995 but have recently resurfaced …

Long Live the Colored Race!, Our Shame »

[6 Nov 2007 | 42 Comments | ]

I skipped obvious things like slavery, racism, and crack in order to focus on things that ONLY black folk can control starting today.

1. “The Corner Store”. Also known as “The Chinese Store” or “The Ghetto Store.” Unlike a bodega, …

After being tagged for the same meme twice by Natural Muze and Tha L, I’m breaking down and doing it. For you non-bloggers, a meme is kind of like a chain letter. The rules are:

A). Link to the …
