The other night I was watching What’s Love Got To Do With It?, a favorite of mine since high school. After over 20 viewings, every nuance of Angela Bassett’s performance still impresses me. In fact, if Angela Bassett were …

I have some nerve even posting this. If you can remember what this 80’s group looked like back in the day let alone imagine what they’d look like after having aged 30 or so years, then you’ve sped right through …

I forgot that one reason I started blogging was to tell stories about the crazies I encounter. I have a special talent for identifying, attracting, and setting them off. So I’m going to write about it more for my own …

Oh heavens.

To be frank, I haven’t felt this kind of anticipation since New Kids on The Block were up for a Grammy. I live in Philly so for this entire campaign season I’ve pretty much been ignoring all of

Race and gender blah blah blah…frankly I’m tired of all of this race and gender talk when it comes to the presidency. You all know who I support and why, but I can’t help wonder how differently I’d feel …

It’s usually my policy to have mercy for un-funny has-been comedians. Gilbert Gottfried, Bob Cat Goldthwait, Ellen Cleghorne – I have no beef with any of them. I snickered a few times at each and now wish them well. But …

Remember the movie Car Wash (the 1976 version, not the updated coon-fest from a few years ago)? Do you remember the plotline with the ex-con (played by Bill Duke), who attempts to rob the carwash after losing his job there? …

If Bossip gets to make an endorsement, then so do I.

And guess who I pick?

Mmmhmm. And I’ll give you five reasons why.

Rather, who are WE? This 90’s group is still trying to be in the mix – with most of its original members, at that. Any ideas?

I took piano lessons for two years, and I played “We Are The World” at my second recital when I was about nine or ten. I thought I was fly for playing a popular song, only to realize that everyone …

Even though Jenifer Lewis isn’t too obscure considering she’s been pretty much EVERYWHERE in tv and movies for the past 30 years, even if you knew her name already you probably didn’t realize that it only has one ‘n’. Jenifer
