THE Anniversary: What Dreams May Come?

THE Anniversary: What Dreams May Come?

Our 5th Anniversary You may have noticed I was not in for last week. We aren’t doing the old number quite yet so I’m certain that far fewer of you know how this usually works. The week of the anniversary for Words Don’t Do It Justice I go away. Usually for planning, but also because life tends to get in the way and I write the post ahead of time to get ready for the day of. This year was a bit different. March 4th was a weekend. And I told you no more weekends. So I took off to Read more »

Notes From Your Favorite Super Villain: No Kings, No Masters

Notes From Your Favorite Super Villain: No Kings, No Masters

ALL HAIL KING KILLMONGER! Now that the hook is out let’s get to it. I know you expect me to rock with N’Jadaka. And I do, sort of. Let’s get this out the way. Michael B. Jordan tore the face off this role and wore it for 2 hours. He is a better written and acted villain than Heath Ledger as the Joker, and were this note a spoiler discussion I would get into all the ways that is. Instead I want to get to a bigger point. Choice. Fair Warning: This is the new style of note, all opinion, Read more »

And now…A new hour begins

And now…A new hour begins

Your brain is feeding you correct information, I assure you. That weird feeling in the back of your mind that says this can’t be happening is, in fact, incorrect. You are here, reading these words. And as it were, so am I. I’ll let that sink in for a moment. You deserve it. Crazy how life goes. For 3 years my Monday schedule included frantically editing and prepping the piece I wrote over the course of the last week. And then getting it shared all over my various social media sites. Stressing over content. Straight up harassing my writers until Read more »

And now we come to…the end of an era

Today, oddly enough was supposed to be the pay off FINALLY for a number of posts about relationships that I thought might be better than all my previous ruthless on relationships post. And indeed I’ll get to that later.   Instead, Today is a day I bring us to a place I knew could happen, but was happy every time it didn’t. Today we end the hour for the last time. What do I mean? Today is the beginning of a goodbye party. For this blog. Oh it will continue to exist, but a transition is afoot. And so with Read more »

And now… at the end of the hour

And now… at the end of the hour

This week we debuted a brand new podcast with a livestream. We said goodbye to one of the founders. We tackled coons, and hoteps. As well as assault, and the HIV & AIDS treatment drug Truvada.     I skipped a couple lines to let that sink in. When this started I literally just wanted to take my usual facebook ranting to a website. I figured it would be like the old days of my Xanga page. Now, now I deal with potential sponsors, have production meetings, worry about our average listening and reading time, and look for brand expansion. Read more »

Dear Lost Cause, err America

Dear Lost Cause, err America

Let’s be real for a few minutes of your Monday afternoon. Dear America, I sat back on Super Bowl Sunday a day traditionally I enjoy above all sports days, most movies, presidential elections, and if we’re being honest, most holidays in any give year save Christmas, and found myself underwhelmed. You as always were at peak Superbowl hype, great commercials, a game that until the actual last few minutes was not in hand, and yet, I just wasn’t feeling it. I turned down prior to the game the exact same amount of “hey come watch the game with us” invitations Read more »

In a world where films matter more than people dying In a place where black lives still matter unless Flint Michigan’s water is poisoning people.
