MISTRESESS S2E04 “Friends with Benefits”

Previously: Mistresses S2E03 “Open House” Well, just finished watching tonight’s episode. Here’s what I think. First, Krista Allen is back! As Janine the Real (Rich) Housewife again. That’s awesome, I was hoping we’d see her again. It’s just a small role again, but I’ll take it. And also returning is Krya (Ashley Newbrough). I guess…

LEE O’DENAT: KING OF INTERNET COONERY

This is Lee O’Denat, the founder of the inexplicably popular website, World Star Hip-Hop (no, I will not link directly to it).

That website is disgusting, as it’s become known primarily for posting videos of Black people acting stupid…

J.R. reviews…MAN OF STEEL!

I’ve been thinking about writing a post about the state of modern superhero movies, and that includes Man of Steel and DC’s upcoming slate of films. Then I realized that I never did write a full review of this film. I’ve meant to do so for awhile, after finally seeing it for free on HBO.…

DANGEROUS by Michael Jackson

After fully embracing pop music on 1987’s BAD album, Michael seemed to purposely re-embrace his R&B music roots on this album. This time Michael did not hire Quincy Jones to produce his album, instead producing most of the album himself along with producers Teddy Riley, Bill Bottrell, and Bruce Swedien. Riley’s involvement is felt most…

BAD by Michael Jackson

If every singer wanted to be in Michael Jackson’s place when he recorded the biggest-selling album of all time, 1982’s Thriller, none of them wanted to be in his place when he was faced with the task of trying to follow-up on that album. In 1987 Michael did just that, with BAD, released on Epic…
