Yeah, I’m a Hypocrite

Filed in Everwhatever

I know I always talk about people watching TV and all that, but right now, I cannot stop watching Car Wash. (I guess that’s why I done watched it 150-200 times already.) Now I’m watching for all the details and trying to formulate some life lessons out of it. Knowing me, I’m probably gonna wind [...]

Ask me somethin’.

Naw, I’m serious. Ask me somethin.

Talkin

Filed in Everwhatever

Following a link from Booker Rising, I ran up on this article describing Bill Cosby’s critique of popular media as it pertains to language. Of all the things I talk about here, this is probably what I am most qualified to talk about. So you know I’ma break it down. I think the key to [...]

Surreality TV

Filed in Everwhatever

Leonard Pitts has an interesting article on the lengths to which some people will go to be celebrities and what that means for the rest of us. Thankfully, I do not have an idiot box and even when I am around one, I don’t watch those surreality shows. My only guilty habit is getting my [...]

DMX has lost his mind. I wish there had been a police helicopter filming this.

Good Morning Heartache

Filed in Everwhatever

I didn’t put this one on the list, but of the versions I have, I think I like Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s rendition of Good Morning Heartache best. There’s a woman, Li’l Mo, singing the song, keeping it very close to Diana Ross’ interpretation. She’s the anchor. None of the rest would work if she weren’t [...]

Idiot Box and random wildness

Filed in Everwhatever

Three times this week, I have seen it written that Black households average 70 hours of television per week. Seventy hours. That’s two full-time (35 hrs) jobs. That’s literally inconceivable to me. That’s 10 hours a day. In those households, the television must never go off. Or nobody goes to work or something. When is [...]

Hope You Come Back

Filed in Everwhatever

Somebody googled my spot looking for The Grunt JBs Arrangement. Because I know how difficult it can be to find this information, I’m gonna put it here. The Grunt (parts 1 & 2) 3:30 Trumpets Clayton “Chicken” Gunnels Darryl “Hasaan” Jamison Tenor Sax Robert McCollough Piano Bobby Byrd Guitar Phelps “Catfish” Collins Bass William “Bootsy” [...]
