THROWBACK THURSDAY THEATER: HAPPY GILMORE (1996)

Happy Gilmore is one of those films that is best to watch really late at night; you know that dangerous hour when everything is funny lol. I will admit, I didn't see this film until last year. I know, it's a shame but I'm not a big Adam Sandler fan. Although it took me a while to catch on, Happy Gilmore is a hilarious film. The more Adam Sandler films I watch, the more respect I have for him as an actor.

REWIND WEDNESDAY: PETER CETERA- THE GLORY OF LOVE

All my 80s babies know The Glory Of Love; lyric for lyric and word for word. This song became a sensation when it was featured on The Karate Kid II soundtrack. I just listened to The Glory Of Love on Spotify and it took me back to my wonderful childhood lol. Yes, back then when life was so simple and so good.













Tonight it's very clear. 'Cause we're both lying here. There's so many things I wanna say. I will always love you. I would never leave you alone. Sometimes I just forget. Say things I might regret. It breaks my heart to see you crying. I don't wanna lose you. I could never make it alone. I am a man who will fight for your honor I'll be the hero you're dreaming of. We'll live forever. Knowing together. That we did it all for the glory of love. #PeterCetera

BASKETBALL IS LIFE: NBA 2K15

NBA 2K15 will be released October 7, 2014. The more I view these video game trailers, the more I think about the progression of video games. Who remembers the game Double Dribble? Lol. I used to play Double Dribble everyday!!! Lawd! I feel old...

BEST BOXING FILMS EVER MADE: TOP 10

Although I don't post gossip, rumors, or foolishness on my blog, I am aware of all the nonsense surrounding legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather and rapper 50 Cent. I do not understand why two former friends; especially two men, are bickering back and forth like children. It's always entertaining to witness men catching feelings; I thought catching feelings was a female trait lol. But in all seriousness, what I don't find funny is making a joke about illiteracy. Illiteracy should never be a laughing matter, and anyone who thinks it is funny should be ashamed of themselves. 50 Cent, as usual, went too far. But since boxing is getting all of this attention, I figured it'll be fitting to do a post on the Best Boxing Films Ever Made. If you've never seen the movie Ali, please find time in your day and watch it. The beginning sequence of Ali is probably the best opening to a movie I've ever witnessed. Let's proceed...

NO AUTO-TUNE TUESDAY: TAMIA

Yes!Tamia! Tamia! Tamia!This is my song! When Tamia sings I can't get enough of you at the end of the song, I can't help but throw my hands up. Lawd! This woman can sang. By the way, Tamia just signed a record deal with Def Jam; I am really happy for her. She deserves it. I am a Tamia fan for life, and she can do no wrong in my book lol. Much love and respect to Tamia! #MissionRnB

TRAILER: KOBE BRYANT'S MUSE- The Sacrifice For Greatness

Showtime's documentary entitled, Kobe Bryan't Muse- The Sacrifice For Greatness, follows the Laker legend on his quest to return to dominance. I will never count Kobe out, when in doubt, always bet on Black; the Black Mamba. In regards to mental toughness, there is no one tougher than Kobe. Unlike most people, Kobe enjoys being doubted; he embraces it, he encourages it...it makes him stronger. Kobe is on another planet where doubt doesn't exist...

THE MOST ANTICIPATED SHOW OF ALL TIME: GOTHAM

Gotham is arguably the most anticipated television show of all time. I know I will be watching when the show premieres on September 22, 2014 (8pm on Fox network). The show is centered around characters appearing in and published by DC Comics; primarily Detective James Gordon and Bruce Wayne. Other characters on the show include several Batman villains; the Penguin, the Riddler, Catwoman, the Joker, Poison Ivy, and more. Gotham's first season will consist of sixteen episodes.

STILL TIPPIN': THE SONG THAT REVIVED HOUSTON HIP HOP

Mike Jones, Slim Thug, and other Houston legends break down the record Still Tippin' and how it revived Houston hip hop 10 years ago. It's hard to believe it's been a decade since Still Tippin' was released but I remember it like it was yesterday. For those who remember, the network BET had a late night music video show (that aired at 3am) entitled Uncut. It was on that show that I first witnessed the Still Tippin' music video. Little did I know, this song would revitalize an entire Houston rap movement. With Mike Jones in the forefront, the careers of Slim Thug, Paul Wall, Chamillionaire,and others went from non-existent to superstardom. Take a look at the Still Tippin' documentary, presented by Magnum Opus.

GREATEST SUPERHERO FILMS: TOP 10

This is sort of embarrassing but I think my readers know me well enough and I'm sure you won't judge me lol. Well, I had this idea to do the Greatest Superhero Films post two years ago but the post has been sitting in my Draft folder---waiting for me to release it. Yes, it honestly has been sitting there for two years! I don't know why but I had a hard time deciding where to place the movies; especially the 1st-5th spots. Therefore, I figured I would just wait until I was completely satisfied with my selections. Okay, now that you know what a mess I am; you can at least take comfort in knowing I don't just throw these countdowns together. I put a lot of thought and effort into all of my Top 10 lists. Enjoy!!!

FREAKY FRIDAY: R. KELLY- HALF ON A BABY

Turn the lights down low.I'm ready to break it off. Since computer love. Been wanting to set it off. Like a hotel room. I'm checkin' into you.I'm diggin' like a shovel. All the things you do. Take a leep over the broom. That's how you're makin' me feel. Come on in this room. And let's keep it real and go. Half on a baby. All I need is your body next to me. Singing ooh, na, na, na, na, na, na, na. Give me your body, your body, na, na, na, na... #RKelly

NEW MUSIC VIDEOS: WEEKLY WRAP UP

I'm sure the whole world has either heard about or viewed the new Nicki MinajAnacondavideo. Just in case you didn't know, there were other music videos that dropped this week as well. Yeah, Nicki has been hogging all the attention. I had a crazy week and didn't have a chance to see the new videos, and I assume there are others who haven't viewed them either; I'm so considerate lol. I wish all of you a safe and great weekend. #HappyFriday

LOOKING FOR TROUBLE...MUSIC!

I heard you were trouble and you heard I was trouble. But your name is a wave washin' over me. No games, just a slave to you totally. Cause I don't care what they say about you Virgo (I don't care!). And you don't care what they say about me Virgo. But you know what they say about trouble...

Pull me down if you want to and I hope that you want to. Cause I wanna be your man and I wanna say it loud. You can show me where trouble goes. Tell me secrets only trouble knows. Cause you wanna be my girl and you wanna say it loud. #FrenchMontana

THROWBACK THURSDAY THEATER: WAITING TO EXHALE (1995)

Waiting To Exhale is a remarkable film about the importance of having friends by your side through the best and worst times in your life. We all need friends who support us, accept our flaws, and respect our differences. I don't have a lot of friends but I greatly value the friendships that I do have. When you get older, you realize friendship is about quality not quantity. Sometimes you'll laugh. Sometimes you'll cry. Life never tells us. The whens or whys. But when you've got friends to wish you well. You'll find a point when. You will exhale. #RIPWhitneyHouston

I PROMISE YOU...MUSIC!

When the visions around you. Bring tears to your eyes. And all that surround you. Are secrets and lies. I'll be your strength. I'll give you hope. Keeping your faith when it's gone. The one you should call. Was standing here all along..And I will take. You in my arms. And hold you right where you belong. Till the day my life is through. This I promise you. This I promise you. #NSYNC















These are some great songs; especially Jagged Edge's Promise record. Shameless plug: Jagged Edge's JE Heartbreak II will be released September 30! Anyway, I almost forgot to mention how much I love Tiffany Evan's voice. Such a small person with such a big voice. Respect! #MissionRnB

REWIND WEDNESDAY: MICHAEL BOLTON- LOVE IS A WONDERFUL THING

When you first fall in love, it's the greatest feeling in the world. The first year in a relationship is usually filled with good times and bliss. But if a relationship can withstand all the hard times and you both are willing to forgive; that's when you know you have a solid relationship worth fighting for. Love is a wonderful thing, when you fall in love with a wonderful person. I am not ashamed to say I was a huge Michael Bolton fan when I was younger but I refuse to post a picture of him with that mullet hairstyle lol.

MOVIE TRAILER: SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS- SPONGE OUT OF WATER (2015)

Yes! I will be going to the movie theater to see this. I'll take my nieces with me so I won't feel too bad about going to see a children's movie lol. But let's be real, most of these adult films are terrible anyway; might as well go and see a feel-good movie. I'm a little bummed I have to wait until 2015 to see Sponge Out Of Water. No official date has been released but as soon as I know a date, I'll definitely let you guys know...

NO AUTO-TUNE TUESDAY: MIGUEL

Miguel is definitely on my list as one of the best voices in R&B music. It not always about having a BIG voice; having a polished and controlled voice is just as respectable. Miguel sings so effortlessly. Listening to him sing is just like listening to someone play an instrument. I have probably played this video 100 times lol. Gonna do you like drugs tonight... #MissionRnB

SNEAKERHEADS: JORDAN FUTURE RELEASE DATES

I'm not a huge fan of these Air Jordan Future shoes but I like their simplicity. It's weird but these shoes look best when worn with jeans. Wearing shorts with these shoes looks rather odd. As a matter of fact, the Jordan brand's reinvention of the sneaker has evolved so much that you can wear Jordans to the prom and to weddings as well.

AIR JORDAN FUTURE Infared 8.27.14



AIR JORDAN FUTURE Black Reflective 8.27.14

DAME DASH: HIP HOP MOTIVATION

Dame Dash. The man. The mogul. The legend. The misunderstood. Say what you what about Dame Dash but you can't argue the huge impact he has had on the entire hip hop nation. He cultivated music, fashion, film, and the arts. In layman's terms...Dame Dash is hip hop. I've been watching these Dame videos soaking in all of his knowledge. I want to be remembered in this business. Do great things. Whenever I'm asked what's the difference between good and great. The answer is quite simple. The difference between good and great is MILLIONS...
