"Phantom Punch"

And again, another movie in the need of financial support.

“Phantom Punch” is a movie about world heavyweight champion boxer Charles L. “Sonny” Liston. In addition to his success, he is known for being knocked out in the ring after two minutes by Muhammad Ali. That punch was given the nickname  the “Phantom Punch.” This punch led to the demise of his carrer. Liston died later under mysterious circumstances. 

The movie is directed by the famous Robert Townsend, known for his role in Hollywood Shuffle, The Five Heatbeats and Parenthood. Unfortunately, production of “Phantom” finished in 2008 but  Townsend has not been able to find a willing distributer. Without a distributer the movie will not be shown to the public. Why do you think the movie has not been picked up? The recession? Not an important story? If it will help, look at the cast. Ving Rhames is playing Liston and the smok’in Stacy Dash is playing his wife.

When the Oxygen channel came out with the reality television show, “The Bad Girls Club,” I refused to watch it. Now, after two and a half seasons I am glued to the show. I just finished watching the marathon. Though the girls, or characters, are interesting, they are not phenomenal in any way. The real appeal of the show is the drama, arguments and physical fights between the roommates in the Bad Girls Club house. I fell deep into this trap this week while watching the violent show. While watching the marathon I was cheering on the roommates when they got into bar brawls with customers and clapped my hands when one of the roommates that I didn’t like got cussed out by a roommate I did support. I watched the drama and nodded my head with the confrontation. That is, until the newest episode. The episode that aired this week, Amber M. was attacked by three of her roommates. In the fight her hair was snatched, she was punched, slapped, pushed onto the pavement and kicked once in the head. After the fight Amber M. retreated to a different hotel room and the other roommates celebrated their actions. This episode disgusted me and made me take another look at the image that I was supporting.

Females getting into fights is not a new trend in reality television. However, it is a trend that needs to stop. As women, we should be conducting ourselves in an honorable way. We should not be calling each other “bitches” “sluts” or “whores.” It saddens me to see women tear each other down.

Women insulting each other also opens up the door for others to do the same. I a a firm believer that, if you keep calling a female a bitch, a male will feel that he can, too. As women, we disrespect each other too much to have a man doing it as well.

I am tired of seeing the rip between women widen.

New discoveries, new adventures!

Designers Stefano Pertegato, Massimiliano Rampoldi, Eloisa Tolu, Francesco Schiraldi and Giovanni Mendini have come out with the newest line in mp3 players: the NVDRS Tape! At first glance, the new mp3 looks likes a cassette tape, but it is actually a digital player. To add to the uniqueness, the players come in 45 minutes (10 songs), 60 minutes (15 songs), and 90 minute (20 songs) options. Songs are uploaded via USB. 

The amount of songs allowed on the mp3 player is not attractive……..but………I am being style freak I guess………because I want one!

According to People, Chris Brown has withdrawn his name from consideration at the Kids’ Choice Awards.

On Wednesday, his rep released this statement:

Chris very much appreciates the support of his fans and the honor they have paid him in the way of nominations for Favorite Male Singer and Favorite Song. Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding the incident last month has shifted the focus from the music to whether he should be allowed to be among those nominated. While Chris would like to speak to his fans directly about this and other issues, pending legal proceedings preclude his doing so at this time. Once the matter before him has been resolved, he intends to do so.

Do you agree with Browns decision? Most importantly, do you think he would have won?
