If you know anything about me you know that I am enthralled with the concept of “love” and how that manifests can be from rooting for two celebrities to be together (Niley forever) or in my consumption of romcoms. So going into the series I was intrigued by the protagonist being not only a man but a fellow lover of the genre as well. I do wanna say that not every male who enjoys romantic movies including romantic comedies are secretly stalkers who obsess over strangers but within seeing the first episode I felt it did a great job of building up who Joe is and why he has his worldview.
This week I saw Adam McKay’s film VICE. Most known for his comedy classics Step Brothers, Anchorman & Talledega Nights he’s recently made a shift to bring his style to more serious topics. His film The Big Short earned him an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. This showed he could succeed out a Will Ferrell lead project and he’s continue to expand with his most recent film looking at Bush’s right hand man, Dick Cheney.
The NCAA would have to take a serious look at the lie that is ‘student-athlete’ and find ways to properly compensate these players who risk injury while biding their time. Let’s hope change truly comes because right now these players are getting screwed. And they truly need to be properly compensated for there talents and by that I mean receiving percentages of those billion dollar March Madness and hundred million dollar apparel deals.
Quincy is a legend. Winning 27 Grammys he’s the second most awarded and has contributed to the best selling album of all time, Thriller. Whether it’s philanthropy building 100 homes in Africa with Habitat for Humanity, speaking to the UN about eradicating extreme poverty or empowering Oprah and Will Smith he’s truly made the most of his 31000 days.
If you love romantic comedies then this is the film for you. It’s fun and is full of life. It’s critically loved and it’s gonna be a success at the box office. Go and get some friends and enjoy.
What I like most about these loosies is that it shows his depth and also the different ways he can approach records. That he can go from just rapping his tail off on 435 to taking a groovy song lie Prophet’s I Wanna Be Your Man and giving a new flavor with Peach Fuzz is awesome. I’ve loved these songs so much that I complied them into a playlist. You can find these songs on his Twitter page and his YouTube channel.
This album is one of the records where you can turn it on and play it all the way through. The songs blend right into each other and the theme of gardens is all throughout the album from Dropping Seeds with Lil Wayne to Garden Shed featuring Estelle. If you haven’t heard it you need to check it out. It was placed #2 on Billboard even after the album leaked two weeks before his release date and has now been certified Gold along with being nominated for Best Rap Album at this past Grammy’s.
