We Talkin Bout Practice.

Filed in Music, Sports

For it to be the semi-embarrassing moment that it was, Allen Iverson’s “Practice? We talkin bout practice?!” press conference is one of my favorite times with him as a Sixer. I remember listening to it live as I drove up Haverford Avenue. And now it has a remix, along with some other classic moments from [...]

Transform The Discussion?

Filed in Everwhatever

Two characters in the new Transformers movie, Skids and Mudflap, are getting a lot more attention than the film’s creators probably anticipated. Given their use of slang, their shuckin’ and jivin’ personae, and the fact that they are unremorsefully (unashamedly?) illiterate, particularly vis a vis the behavior of the other Autobots, some people question whether [...]

The Sixers are going back to their classic logo. Now let’s see if they can go somewhere in the playoffs.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Filed in Everwhatever

I’ma try, try, try to do this without spoiling the movie, but we’ll see what happens. Overall, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was okay. Not great, not totally wack, it was okay. Was it worth gettin up and going to the 12:01 show for? Probably not. But y’all couple of people lookin at this probably [...]

Push Away From the Table, Mabel – Joe Tex

Filed in Everwhatever

One statistical projection says that by 2034, 100% of Black women will be overweight, as defined by the BMI. When it comes to people, it’s usually the case that all of anything is nothing, so it’s not gonna be true that literally every Black woman will be overweight, but statistically all. And I know the [...]

Missed Opportunity?

Filed in Everwhatever

Flippin through the channels while my daughter was here, I saw a commercial for a TV show a friend of mine was complaining about. Make Me A Supermodel She’s Got The Look is about over-35 women who think they have what it takes to model. Per my friend’s observation, the contestants on the show had [...]

Same != Equal

Filed in Everwhatever

One of the things I think people need to be very careful about is pointing out the difference between being racist and acknowledging that there are certain differences between racial groups (which may or not apply to a given individual within that group.) These days, the popular mode of thought is that because we are [...]

Top 10 Lakers

Filed in Everwhatever

Because they’re in the Finals again, and because they’re the first basketball team I ever really even cared about (but I never loved them like I loved the Knicks), here are my top 10 LA Lakers, in some semblance of an order. 1. Magic 2. West 3. Kareem 4. Shaq 5. Kobe 6. Worthy 7. [...]

What More Can I Say?

Filed in Everwhatever

Apparently, Crunchberry Crunch does not contain actual berries! Forgive my skepticism for never having thought so in the first place, but a California woman found out for sure, and because she wanted to protect us all, tried to sue the manufacturer to get them to stop fooling us. She, apparently, had been fooled for four [...]

I Met The Browns

Filed in Everwhatever

Last night, I did something atypical: I watched television. I probably watched more TV last night than I had all year, not counting sporting events. There wasn’t anything that I particularly wanted to see, but when I saw that they were running a marathon of the Tyler Perry shows, I wanted to take a look, [...]
