What SHOULD Matter?

So apparently size and more matters when it comes to anchors.

Check out Uncle Barky’s thoughts on the matter – interesting.

Do we really care who we hear who killed who from? A pleasant personality and speaking manner is all I require? What about you?

Folks visit the site. See what you think. Is it time change some thangs? Don’t get mad at me I’m just tellingitlikeit T-I-Tiz!

This is hilarious!!

Please note for all you sensitive people:

This is done very tongue and cheek. There’s obviously a “special setting” or lighting issue being overlooked.  However, with advances in technology, you would think this would NOT be an oversight.

Enjoy!!!Please watch in the spirit of the video. If you leave anything to risque you will not be approved although I welcome your comments pro or con for the video.  I don’t like to censor… Just be easy.  Play like adults. 🙂

“Hit The Bitch” – A NEW Danish App?

Posted on

First. What do you think about a game called “Hit The Bitch?”  I want you to remember what feelings or thoughts it evokes.  Write em down whatever you have to do, just remember them.

Now…It’s the new Danish platform to promote awareness AGAINST domestic violence.

I first learned about this on Blogher while perusing the health section. Read the article tell me what you think.

There’s a lot of things that can be said:

Does it reach its intended audience? Yes.

Does it promote awareness of the issue? Yes. (look we’re all discussing and even outraged)

Does it promote awareness AGAINST violence? I’m not so sure…

When our younger community is NOT easily swayed by scare tactics or moved by statistics.  Is this the guerilla style tactic we have to resort to in order to reach this audience? Be realistic.  There are tv series about robin hood style serial killers and rogue plastic surgeons….

It’s definitely an “in your face” campaign and may be NOT to the liking of some or MOST folks.  If nothing else…it has people talking/buzzing?  I’ve seen other campaigns like the European Don’t lose your head HIV campaign…it was racy and controversial. (beware of pics before you click!) Even our super heroes have been used to get the message across!  Is this different?

I’d love to hear what teens think about it. What about Danish teens?

Here are some male thoughts on the matter:

Rapper (Master P) starts New Cable Station?

Posted on

According to the Chicago Suntimes rapper and entrepreneur Master P is poised to launch his BBTV in 2009. He has teamed up with many celebrities including Denzel Washington. His station will provide alternative content and programming to MTV’s BET. It is aimed at persons of color yet still appeal to people of varied background. Will Master P be able to compete with BET and TVOne (also with the same target market?).

All I’m going to say is this will be interesting to see. Master P is a renowned pioneer, “hustler,” and philanthropist (I think that’s the right word). He’s even made his son into a brand name. He’s had his own potato chips and a few straight to DVD movies. However, Master doesn’t really have the reputation or resume you would expect of someone who had the ability to bring a successful family oriented cable network to the masses. Then again, nobody expected Bernie Mac or Ice Cube or Ice T to make their fortunes in family oriented shows on prime time or on the big screen –but they did! There are many critics out there that don’t believe Master P will even get close to success in this particular business venture. I won’t be a nay sayer –but I am skeptical. If Master P Theater featuring Black Superman and Uncle P are any indications of Master P’s creative skills –hopefully he doesn’t make the mistake of placing himself as creative director or producer of any of his programming… in that situation he would be setting himself up for failure! If he isn’t wise enough to hire a team of professionals who actually KNOW the industry then I would have to concur…the network is going down the toilet like a fresh one!

Don’t get mad at me I’m just tellin’ it like it T-I-Tiz!!!!

Isaac Hayes found DEAD – Another Entertainer lost!

Posted on

Isaac Hayes - no longer with us!

Isaac Hayes - no longer with us!

Another entertainer that touched our lives was found dead today. Reported earlier this morning Isaac Hayes was found dead today in his home lying next to his treadmill!! Mr. Hayes brought into our lives music that moved the soul such as…the theme from “Shaft” and “Hot Buttered Soul.” He was also a favorite voice on the show, South Park. He is another great artist that will be missed.

This comes on the heels of the loss of Bernie Mac another entertainer that touched our daily lives.

Bernie Mac — Dead?? : UPDATE!!!

Posted on

Nope. The title eludes to Bernie Mac being deceased b/c last night I got a Text stating his death as a fact! Yes. While painting the town red last night, a girlfriend of mine (who forewent painting) bothered herself to send me a text stating that Bernie Mac, the comedian and entertainer from Ocean’s 11 and other well-known films has “died”! I immediately sought sympathy from my surrounding friends who were out painting with me. No one wanted to believe it but, my friend said she got the info. from CNN’s own Nancy Grace that he was hospitalized earlier and now he was “dead”. I felt bad and then someone said something interesting…. “Did you Google it?”

I hadn’t thought to Google even though I held the latest of technologies in the palm of my hand. Why should I? I had taken my girlfriend’s words for truth. I’d known her for years to be a gossip, but I was sure she wouldn’t say…”dead” unless she herself had confirmed it. Much to my dismay I already felt that feeling in the pit of my stomach coming on stronger than ever…Was I? passing on an untrue rumor? This was the perfect set-up to just be flat out wrong. Now, I had to hope that the words that were coming out of my mouth were true (sorry Bernie) but, I didn’t want to be part of the gossip chain. I don’t mind stating facts and my opinion on them but to spread a rumor that just isn’t true…well, that’s not me.

Lo and behold…She ONLY had it 1/2 right. Not ONLY is Bernie Mac NOT dead…he was hospitalized for pneumonia and is recovering according to his publicist who had to release a statement in order to dispel the rumor that had quickly spread to the masses! Where did it come from who knows and who cares? I’m ashamed that I was one of the ones who just should’ve kept their mouths shut!!!

Sometimes I even have to tell myself like it T-I-tiiz!!

Unfortunately, when this was originally posted, Bernie Mac’s death was just an ugly rumor. Now it is a sad reality. It turns out that Bernie Mac has passed on. We shall miss his contributions and the humor he brought to us all.
