Inspiration...won't she do it!

It started from a meme now we're here.  The ball on ideas is rolling at a crazy pace and we are anxious like lil hyped up kids on Christmas morning. Let the brain-storming of ideas rain down upon us. I am so here for it. 

The birth of a buddy movie starring Rhianna and Lupita Nyong'o is a celebration. The whole idea is to die for.  I don't know who took this photo and thrusted upon us but the creative juices have been flowing ever since. Not since Zola's story of a weekend in ho hopping and pussy popping hell has an idea of a forthcoming movie had Twitter ablaze AND folks is with the business?! Chit chatter swirled around and had us ready to buy movie tickets and popcorn but alas our lil feelings were crushed as nothing came to fruition regarding #thestory of Zola. I digress....

                                                      

 EW News has reported that Ava Duvernay and Issa Rae are already locked and loaded. 
I definitely need to do more research and follow this story closely. Here are some tweets regarding this idea:

The original posts

It started on Tumblr now we're here with the Black Twitter takeover....

The official announcement...

The corroboration...



I just really dig this flick so yea...here it is again.


So the question everyone is asking is who's getting the credit for the initial idea and like Wyclef sang: "where the money at?!"

Are you ready for The Dark Tower?

I have watched the trailer for The Dark Tower several times and get more excited about seeing it each time. August 4th is a loooonnnnnggg time to wait for a movie to come out but alas....what am I to do. So I did a little research and found more info including the fact that this movie is based on eight novels , 30 comi series entitled the Dark Tower written by best-selling author Stephen King.

Now as far as adaptations go I have read plenty of comments by plenty of fans who are bracing themselves for the worse most likely because the idea of eight books and 30 comics being condensed into a two hour movie has got to have fans wondering how are they going do it? And what is going to be left out?

A movie that combines the old west with magical finesse, of course, with science fiction, horror and dark fantasy with inspirational nuances taken from King Arthur and Lord of the Rings (a fav of mine) as well as some of Kings other novels and some of the characters from these other novels that we have grown to know and maybe love or hate whichever your preference. The point is The Dark Tower movie will have to be a massive cumulative compilation of eight novels, 30 comics, multiple genres, new and previously seen characters, with enough to satisfy the legion of fans it already has and to capture the minds and money of new fans. That's a hefty order.


One of the main things I have read that is bothering some fans, not all, is the fact that Idris Elba was cast as Roland who appears in all illustrations and characterizations as blue-eyed white male basically a Clint Eastwood dobble-ganger.


A few commenters mentioned the fact that Idris wasn't cast as the first black James Bond so this was the politically correct thing to do. Cast him as the black version of Roland Deschain, the movie's main character the last of a line of gunslingers who is trapped in an eternal feud with a man described as worse than the devil himself The Man in Black played by Matthew McConaughey who the gunslinger must keep from tumbling the Tower. Now based on some of the descriptions I have read, sans the color of his skin, Idris is indeed a great choice especially with that scruffy beard but hey what do I know. I know he has the acting chops and he's already gotten the role so the proof will be in the pudding so enough.

I am eager to see this movie and am planning to run to my local library to grab the books so I can read them prior to see the movie. I will probably make an updated post at that time with more insight.

Damn....

I'm just gonna leave this right here. Kendrick Lamar's recently released 4th studio album DAMN has hit the ground running with no intentions of slowing down and is currently numero uno in the country. 


The current reigning number one song in all of the land Humble already had conversations buzzin because of such lyrics as "I’m so f*cking sick and tired of the Photoshop. Show me something natural like afro on Richard Pryor. Show me something natural like ass with some stretch marks..." I got you K Dot and many women started the slow clap in celebration posting pics of themselves au natural such as this pic Porsha Williams posted of herself sans makeup inspired by Kendrick Lamar.



Now it wasn't all kumbaya let's all do the happy dance and throw that ass full of stretch marks in a circle. Some females voiced their displeasure with Kendrick's lyrics citing that he is only saying what he is saying because of his own sexual wants, needs and preferences. They didn't perceive his remarks as being real and thought-provoking but more so as shallow and superficial. I mean it's his words, thoughts and expression so....

Hey ya...did you catch Lip Sync Battle?

If you missed John Legend's portrayal of Andre 3000 in his rendition of Hey Ya for his Lip Sync Battle All stars performance you missed a good one. It was "ice cold" to say the least. With Stevie Wonder on the keyboards Legend definitely garnered my vote. The man should've won. He was robbed.

Olivia Munn's performance alongside two of the women's Olympic gymnasts was fantastic. Terry Crews was on deck to do his thing with politician impersonators galore. He had two Obama, two Clintons, and a Trump sounds like a full house to me and dressed like he was having a gladiator flashback he deemed himself thr president of Lip Sync Battle. The weave he was wearing wasn't budging. It swayed to the beat like a good wig should.

In the end newly retired Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps walked away with yet another gold win for his performance as Eminem singing Lose Yourself. I can't hate on him, he did do a good job. He set the scene just right as Rabbitt in 8 Mile. All we needed was his dysfunctional mom and disgruntled baby mama so Phelps for the win. I was still hoping for an upset in the end and the belt to go to Legend. I'm just bias I guess. At least I don't have a problem admitting it.

Enjoy the vid of John's full performance below.

Dear United...

You done did it now. After the unfortunate event of Kentucky physician, David Dao, a 69 year old passenger on overbooked United Express flight 3411 suffered a broken nose, a concussion and the lost of two front teeth as he was being involuntarily dragged off of the plane the internet went in of course. This is in no way a laughing matter. Nonetheless, the net has been unforgiving in it's tirade of the event. Below are some memes to enjoy for shits and giggles.
