The Post Lebron James Fandom Apocalypse

Well folks the decision has been made unless you are currently living off the grid like Gene Hackman’s character in Enemy of the State then you probably know that Lebron James has decided to return to Cleveland to be a Cavalier again. I have to say personally for me it was one of the better stories I’d heard out of the NBA in a long time. Once the news became official it was almost like the universe righted a wrong that should’ve never occurred in the first place. Continue reading

The New Face of Dr. Hannibal Lecter


It’s no longer Sir Anthony Hopkins folks, the new face of Hannibal Lecter belongs to Mads Mikkelsen lock, stock, and barrel. Just before you go calling me crazy I have to stop and ask you first, have you seen the Hannibal series on NBC? If you have seen it then I need to ask you, what is the meaning of quality acting to you? I realize in the day and age we live in where mediocrity is exonerated and true talent shunned that making that last inquiry can be a loaded question depending on the person it’s presented to. That being said however, Mads Mikkelsen’s performace as the stylish, cunning, charming and sadistic Dr. Hannibal Lecter for the last two seasons has been nothing short of brilliant. Continue reading

Third Root’s Revolutionary Theme Music: Album Review

070514_1759_ThirdRootsR1.jpgDo you have a revolution you’re fighting for? Is it a fight to get in shape while struggling to leave junk food alone? Is it a fight to get off an addiction to drugs? Or perhaps, is it an uprising of everyday average people against a billionaire tyrant who refuses to change the racist name of his football team? I’m sure you get where I’m going here, we should all have something that we’re fighting for and until that goal is achieved your revolution should continue to live on. Now just imagine if whatever said revolution you were fighting had its own theme music? It makes me think about how much more pumped I get in the gym when I’m listening to a song like Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger”. Something about that song reaches down in my soul and tells me I can do one more set or I can stay on the treadmill a little longer. That’s the beauty and power of music it can speak to us in ways few things can. Continue reading

Join Spike Lee for the 25th Anniversary of “Do the Right Thing” With Brooklyn Block Party

bKlynToday at 12PM ET – you won’t need to ask “where’s the party at” – that’s because Spike Lee will be throwing a block party in Brooklyn’s “Do or Die” Bed-Stuy!  To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Spike Lee’s film “Do the Right Thing” on Saturday, and the director says he will be there signing autographs.  “It is all going down on the single block where the film was shot 25 years ago,” Lee wrote on Instagram Friday. That’s Stuyvesant Avenue between Lexington Avenue and Quincy Street. The party goes from noon to 6 p.m. The film was released June 30, 1989, and tells a story about simmering racial tensions on the Brooklyn block amid the hottest day of summer. Continue reading
