Because everyone needs a soapbox…this is mine.

With Bad Boy R&B group Day 26 dropping their album Day 26 on the 26 day of March (note the marketing savvy), I thought that it was time to track down some of the potential songs on their album and bring them to you so you could decide whether you were going to help them earn mani-pedis from the girls of Danity Kane. Apparently, there is a bet between the two groups that whomever sells the most downloads on Itunes gets the loser to personally provide them with manicures and pedicures. Personally, I’d much rather listen to the guys than girls because the guys are leaning towards classic R&B while the girls are going for a more sugary pop, rebirth of Britney Spears slash N sync, futuristic thing and I’m just soooo not ready for another Pop explosion. Plus, there’s only so much of Aubrey’s heavy breathing and breathy seductive singing that I can stand. The guys are like a fresh breathe of air but that’s just my opinion you be the judge.

I have never watched an episode of Dancing With the Stars and thanks to Youtube I will never have to. I only want to see 21 year old r&b singer Mario move his body around the dance floor. He looked like a professional dancer moving around the stage and was quite a joy to watch. So my vote is for Mario to win. I check back with Youtube next week to see how he’s doing and post his performance, lol.

Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who (Movie Trailer)

So, I took the family to see this Dr. Seuss classic on the big screen and it did not disappoint. As usual Blue Sky, the creators of Ice Age, have worked their computer animation magic along with colorful voices of Steve Carell, as the mayor, Jim Carey, as Horton and Carrol Bernnett as the evil Kangaroo to bring the words of my favorite childhood author to life. The jokes are intellectual enough for the parents to enjoy but not to adult for the children to enjoy which is an important factor in a quality family movie.

There are also a couple of unexpected yet pleasant surprises within the the movie that makes it stand out from any cartoon animation movies before it. I would definitely suggest this movie as a must see for the family, as well as, a sappy girl because this movie makes a great date that you can drag your man to and he’ll actually enjoy the jokes while you’ll get to shed a tear. Awwww, LOL. To make things even sappier, here’s the cartoon version of Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hatches the Egg:

Dave Chappelle Show Skit “When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong”

This week’s Friday Funny comes via The Chappelle Show. Like millions of dedicated Chappelle fans I wished things could have worked out so that Dave could have finished his show the way that he wanted but it didn’t work out that way. So big ups to Dave for holding onto his dignity and knowing what he could and couldn’t live with. Here is one of the skits that helped make the show a success.

Listen First: Brandy-Dig This

Singer/Actor Brandy is throwing her towel back into the musical ring with her latest offering “Dig This”. This new track from Brandy sounds exactly like that song “Sexy Can I” by her brother Ray J…well maybe not exactly like Ray J. but really similar. After the last year’s turmoil, it’s good seeing her get back to making music but what do you guys think?

Why is today the best day on the calendar? Duh, because it’s my birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MS. MINDS!!!

 Here are some other folks who will agree that March 10th is the best day on the calendar:

JASMINE GUY

The all remember her as Whitley on A Different World and for her role in School Daze and I enjoyed watching her in Dead Like Me but how many remember when she tried her hand at being a singer:

CHUCK NORRIS

70s and 80s action hero Chuck Norris had a string of hit movies including Delta Force and Mestre with Bruce Lee, but is more recently known for his love of Mike Huckabee…I forgive him for that because he gave me one of my guilty pleasures…Walker, Texas Ranger. Here’s his mountain Dew Commercial:

SHARON STONE

Once the sexiest woman in Hollywood actor Sharon Stone is a March 10th baby also. You may remember her from Sliver, If These Walls Could Talk and recently as in Alpha Dog.

Here’s a commercial starring Sharon while parodying her famous leg crossing scene:

TIMBALAND

Supa Dupa producer Timbaland also celebrates a birthday today. Timbaland featuring Cheri Dennis “The Way I Are”

CARRIE UNDERWOOD

American Idol turned Country Music star Carrie Underwood celebrates her big day today. Here’s my favorite video by Carrie Underwood “Before He Cheats”:

NENEH CHERRY

Neneh Cherry had everyone in a Buffalo Stance back in the 80s and here’s the video:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALL THE MARCH 10TH BABIES BOTH FAMOUS AND INFAMOUS!!!

So the beautiful Ms. Kelly Rowland decided to go from this:

To this:

Which leaves me to ask? What’s the big damn deal? She’s sexy either way and I say if you want to tweak your your sexy and have the money to do so then good for you. It’s not like she went all Lil Kim at the plastic surgeon’s office. She went for a more natural tasteful look. It’s easy to shun and say “I can’t believe she did that.” or “why would she mess herself up like that” or tell the biggest lie of all by saying “I wouldn’t get plastic surgery if I were her, when the truth is most women would if they could afford it. We’ve all looked in the mirror at one time or another and said “If I could just get this little pooch around my belly sucked out” or “if I could just go up one cup six” .” Kelly just has the financial means to act on her desires to change a part of her body.

A great big thumbs up to Kelly for keeping quiet until it was time to re-release her album. Way to get your name back in everyone’s mouths. You go girl!

 

Everyone enjoys a good laugh, so I decided to start posting what I will be calling “The Friday Funny”. I don’t have any idea what this guy is saying but the jokes translate to any language. If I had to translate then I would guess that this guy rigged a skeleton to a remote controlled motorbike and then had it ride up behind unsuspecting passersby to scare the crap out of them.  It’s been on youtube.com for awhile but I still think it’s funny. Enjoy!

Damaged by Danity Kane off their upcoming album Welcome to the Dollhouse in stores March 18, 2008. Listen to their new song Damaged here.  For some reason I really don’t think that the girls are gonna go platinum this time around.  They pretty much feel off the face of the planet after their “Show Stoppers” single and they aren’t really poised to be the next Destiny’s Child but hopefully the girls can pull a rabbit out of their hat.

Got Me Going by Day 26 off their upcoming album Day 26 on March 25, 2008. Listen to Got Me Going here.  This photo looks really reminiscent of the last New Edition cover.  After seeing them perform on BET’s Rip the Runway, I wasn’t all that impressed.  They are still green though, so maybe they’re still just getting all of their nerves out.
