10 BEST SUSPENSE MOVIES OF ALL TIME!

If you love suspense thrillers, then you have to watch all of the movies on my list. The best suspense thrillers are the ones that leave you with your mouth wide open. After watching suspense movies, I immediately watch them again lol. Hey, it's the only way to piece things together. Watching the movie a second time is always best; while I watch it, I say to myself, "right, I get it now" or "yes, now it makes sense". Haaaa!

10. WHAT LIES BENEATH



09. THE GAME



08. ORPHAN



07. THE SECRET WINDOW



06. THE SKELETON KEY



05. MEMENTO



04. THE USUAL SUSPECTS



03. PSYCHO



02. THE OTHERS



01. THE SIXTH SENSE

THROWBACK THEATER: COOL RUNNINGS (1993)

You can thank the Sochi Winter Olympics for this post. The Jamaican Bobsled Team may have finished near the bottom of the standings this Olympics but they are still, as always, a crowd favorite.

FROM BANDMATES TO SOLO SUPERSTARS!

The Number One spot was obviously an easy choice but 10-2 was not so easy. I am a huge Toni Braxton fan but I did not include her on the list because The Braxtons were not a well-known or very successful group. Let's be honest, we didn't know about The Braxtons until after Toni's solo success. No disrespect, just facts.

If you're also wondering why R. Kelly didn't make the cut..well, do you honestly consider R. Kelly and Public Announcement an actual group? R. Kelly was always a solo act, even when he was with P.A. The only two artists I struggled with by not putting them on this list was Patti Labelle and Kelly Rowland. Other than that, I am content with my choices. Bow!

REWIND WEDNESDAY: PHIL COLLINS- IN THE AIR TONIGHT

I am so blessed to have had a mom who loved all types of music. I grew up listening to everyone and everything; Al Green, Rod Stewart, R.E.M, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Phil Collins, and the list goes on. I breathe music. I can't imagine my life without it. Rewind Wednesdays mean more to me than just posting music videos. All of these old-school videos represent the music I grew up listening to. Playing Phil Collins' In The Air Tonight just reminded me of my mom picking me up from school while this song played on the radio. I miss those days...

I am sure you all have seen Joe's crazy shoe collection. If you haven't seen it, I got you. Anyway, you have to take a look at these sick custom made Lebron's.

IT'S TIME TO DROP AN ALBUM THIS YEAR!

I know you may be thinking some of these artists have fallen off but the reality is...all of the artists on this list actually left the music scene on a high note (no pun intended). Lloyd Banks may be staying relevant by dropping mixtapes but he honestly needs to get back in the studio and release an album; HFM2 was classic.

I definitely thought Mario was going to release Evolve (supposedly slated for a 2014 release) after his hit single Somebody Else featuring Nicki Minaj. It seems singer Lloyd is just content with releasing hit songs on the internet instead of putting a complete album together. Either way, I hope these artists make a 2014 comeback and release an album this year. I won't say it's 2014 or bust BUT their window will be closing soon...

OUTKAST Hopefully their recent outings will prompt a studio visit



LLOYD Hasn't dropped an album since 2011



MARIO Last album was never released after two failed release dates

Kia has definitely come a LONG way. I am still not a Kia fan but the GT4 Stinger is actually a nice car. The concept car got the green light and is heading into production.

ACTORS WHO HAVE RETIRED...SMH

I honestly don't understand when actors announce they are retiring. Really? Why not just STOP making films. Has anyone noticed actor Sean Connery hasn't made a movie since 2003? Thank you Sean for not announcing to the world that you have retired. The reality is, most of us don't really notice your absence from the big screen unless TMZ catches you walking down the street or you end up on a Where Are They Now list.

Secondly, you more than likely will come back out of retirement. Usually, these actors come back because they miss the fame and we know they miss the money. No matter if you are wealthy or not, when people come out of retirement, it's because they can't afford not to work. Here is a list of actors who have announced their retirement...

EDDIE MURPHY (Eddie, please retire from the music business too LOL, no seriously)



MACAULAY CULKIN (I lied, I miss Macaulay lol)



AMANDA BYNES



GENE HACKMAN



RYAN PHILIPPE

Not really a Chief Keef fan but these videos are pretty interesting. There's a lot of talk that he was dropped from Interscope...who cares. As long as Kanye West is still working with him, I am sure he'll be fine.

THROWBACK THEATER: THE GOLDEN CHILD (1986)

I had a traumatic experience watching this movie when I was a child and I couldn't eat oatmeal for months thanks to The Golden Child. It really sucked because my grandmother used to make the best oatmeal! If you have no idea what I am talking about, I guess you're gonna have to watch the movie.

REWIND WEDNESDAY: THE CARS- DRIVE

I love having an intelligent niece who appreciates music like this. The minute I played this song, the whole room went silent. After the song went off, we both had a conversation about how great music was in the 80's. #LoveBeingAnEightiesBaby

SKITTLES PORTRAIT OF MARSHAWN LYNCH

Wow! This is beyond cool. The talented Nick Harmer made a Skittles portrait of Super Bowl Champs running back Marshawn Lynch. Skittles is my favorite candy of all time, I wish someone would make one for me. Second thought, I probably would just eat it lol. Mmmm, taste the rainbow.






For those who don't know, Marshawn Lynch is obsessed with Skittles. He even eats them during NFL games on the sidelines. Once the Seattle Seahawks faithful fans caught wind of his obsession, they started throwing Skittles on the field when Marshawn scores touchdowns.
