Music, Movies and the Not So Mundane


Y’all have a good Turkey Day? You feeling fat? Well Takeru Kobayashi ate 7.5 pounds of turkey in 10 minutes.

That’s what’s up.

Pat Robertson’s The 700 Club last Wednesday featured Condoleezza Rice and host, a black Kristi Watts, discussing the ideal Thanksgiving side dishes. Watts asked Rice what she just had to have and Rice replied macaroni and cheese. Watts reacted enthusiastically saying, “Sister, that is my dish!”

Robertson, feeling left out chimed in, “is that a black thing?”

Watts simply replied, “It is a black thing, Pat …The world needs to get on board.”

You can buy Black Star’s single, “Fix Up,” on iTunes as well as stream and download their first single, “You Already Knew,” off of their tribute to Aretha Franklin.

Wyclef Jean (ex-Refugee/ex-Hatian politico/soon-to-be-ex-leader of charities and the like) was somehow only able to find less than a third of the $16 million he gathered for the earthquake relief in Haiti. The New York Post reported Sunday that Jean’s charity, Yele Haiti, actually handed out millions of dollars to what looks like nothing, including $1 million being paid to a firm in Florida that doesn’t exist. According to the report, Yele Haiti even donated $250,000 to a Haitian TV station owned by Jean and his cousin Jerry Duplessis. “Have we made mistakes before? Yes,” Jean said back in 2010. “Did I ever use Yele money for personal benefits? Absolutely not. Yele’s books are open and transparent.” Yele Haiti is yet to respond to the new charges.

British film director Ken Russell (Mahler, Altered States) has died at 84 after struggling from a series of strokes. 

Jay-Z and Kanye West played “Niggas in Paris” seven times during their latest performance in Detroit. That shit cray.

Rapper T.I. told Vibe that he thinks gay activists are being “too sensitive” about the whole Tracy Morgan saying he’d kill his son if he found out he were gay thing. “Man, I will say this, the funniest joke I ever heard Tracy say during a stand-up was, ‘C’mon man, I think gay people are too sensitive,’” T.I. told the magazine. “'If you can take a dick, you can take a joke’ That shit was funny to me. And it’s kind of true.”

T.I. added, “That’s not American. If you’re gay you should have the right to be gay in peace, and if you’re against it you should have the right to be against it in peace.” 

Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords says there could be a movie made based on their television show

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten (6”6, 265 pounds) absolutely crushed Cowboys cheerleader Melissa Kellerman after running out of bounds during their game against the Miami Dolphins over the weekend. Kellerman tweeted about the incident a few times before her account was abruptly deactivated, allegedly by Cowboys officials for making their team look girly. “Not hurtin’ today, like some of y’all thought I would be! Our TE isn’t as tough as he looks…That or I’m WAY tougher than I look. ;)”

Happy Birthday to Judd Nelson, Ed Harris, Jon Stewart, Pamela Hayden, Randy Newman, Trey Songz and Berry Gordy.
