Making A Classic Dave Chappelle Skit Even Funnier

A co-worker sent this in a e-mail chain this morning, and I couldn’t stop laughing for a good ten minutes! I’d be wrong if i didn’t share it with the rest of you guys! Like Dave Chappelle’s Rick James skit wasn’t funny enough! Now, we’ve got the house remix!!! [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYP_MgWF8hw]

If It Bleeds, Robert Rodriguez Can Produce It?

I’ve always been one of these people who didn’t really care one way or another about remakes. I can at the very least understand that some things are sacred, and there are several classic films that should NEVER be touched. And even if someone actually dares to try, I’ll at least keep an open mind […]

What Will Scarlett Johansson Do Next?

Alright, this is clearly becoming the trend of the week for me. Between Lil’ Wayne, Lupe Fiasco, and Joaquin Phoenix (unless he’s just playing a sick joke on all of us), I’ve overloaded on actors wanting to rap, rappers wanting to sing rock n’ roll, and back to actors wanting to sing. Or “still” wanting […]

My Review Of Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

Yeah, I know there are a lot of Oscar-Nominated films I could have gone and seen last weekend, but I wanted to see werewolves and vampires rip each other to pieces. Is that so wrong?! In any event, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans precedes the first two films, taking place in some non-descript European country […]

Is Joaquin Faking It?

For the love of all that is decent and holy, PLEASE LET THIS BE THE TRUTH!!! I know this is the point where a buttload of people come out of the woodwork to say, “I knew it all along!!” But I’m not gonna be one of those people. I’m gonna own up to my naivete, […]

Japanese Cartoon – Firing Squad

Oh, how the tables have turned! ‘Cause here I am, just one day after raking Lil’ Wayne over the coals for his crimes against rock music, and I come across this little ditty. For weeks now, I’ve been hearing about Japanese Cartoon, and how the band is basically Lupe Fiasco’s needlessly elaborate side project. That […]

Lil' Wayne – Prom Queen

Continuing with my idea that there are some people who should just leave certain things alone, we’ve got a new song from Lil’ Wayne off of his upcoming rock album. Again, I have nothing against an actor or music artist trying different things, but it really is a situation where it’s either going to work really […]

Currently Listening To . . . DJ Jackie O – Grind

Eminem Better Watch Himself!!!

Now, when Joaquim Phoenix declared he’d be quitting acting to focus on “music”, I didn’t really think much of it. I’m not one of those people that says no actor should pursue music. There are the occasional exceptions. For a guy who started out as a stand-up comedian, Jamie Foxx surprised a lot of people when they […]

My Review Of Notorious (and the experience of seeing it at my local movie theater)

If this weekend’s box office numbers are any indication, fat men made quite a splash, as Paul Blart: Mall Cop (Jesus Christ!) was the number one movie in the country, and the 2nd biggest opening for a film ever during the Martin Luther King holiday weekend . Meanwhile Noturious, the biopic chronicling the life and tragic death of rapper […]
