Snap music for the eyes

July 30, 2007


I don’t know about ya’ll, but one of the things I loved as a lil’ Phuque was prime-time television. The Cosby Show, A Different World, and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air were a few of my favorite sitcoms to watch.

Flash forward to 2007…



Bored as Phuque

Vick should’ve shocked this Pitbull…

It’s friday…and I ain’t got shit to do, so I’m posting for the helluvit:


Health > Beauty

July 26, 2007


Monique is a comedienne/actress who is mostly known for being proud to be overweight (and that one show on VH1). While her outer appearance may not necessarily concern her, you’ve got to wonder if she considers her health to be an issue (and why she opted to host “Charm School” instead of appearing on “Celebrity Fit Club”).

In case you haven’t heard, NBC will be premiering their new (old) series “Bionic Woman” in September. For those of you who are not familiar with 1970’s television (I know I’m not), the show is a remake of “The Bionic Woman” (notice the “The”) which ran on the ABC network from 1976-77, and NBC from 1977-78. Along with the drastic name change [/sarcasm], the show is said to be a lot different than it’s predecessor. Peep the trailer.

Phuque doesn’t care about (white) black people

Everbody wanna be a nigga, but don’t nobody wanna be a nigga.” – Paul Mooney

Last weekend I went out to a friend’s engagement party/BBQ/drinking contest out in B.F.E. (population 219 – counting the animals) and I saw something that made me want to vomit a little in my mouth. It seemed like the entire town of farmers, truckers, etc. had big-ass SUVs – on 22s. People were walking the streets in Rocawear, Phat Farm (smh), etc. It was enough to make a grown man shed a tear. I guess that what happens when you sell your soul your culture to the masses.


When Keeping It “Real” Goes Wrong

July 16, 2007


“Hot Ghetto Mess”, a six-episode series dedicated to the “betterment of the African-American community”, will debut on Bullshit Excuses Television on July 25th. Judging from the show’s title I’d say that it should fit in well with the network’s current programming (it’s even hosted by Chaalie Murphy). This show has probably caused a first in television advertising history (I know someone will correct me if I’m wrong) – companies State Farm Insurance and Home Depot have asked BET to pull their advertising from the series’ time slot…..and they haven’t even seen an episode.


Stuck in the middle

I haven’t purchased a CD in a year.

I haven’t listened to the radio since God knows when.

So….in my personal opinion: HHID.


Sometimes there just aren’t enough rocks…

July 9, 2007


Sundays are usually my day to (try to) relax, catch up on some sleep, and maybe watch a movie or two, so I caught Mr. Forrest Gump on the tube yesterday. Unless you’ve been living under a rock you know the story, so I’m not spoiling anything when I say that Jenny was one fucked up broad. I mean the whole abusive father thing had a big domino effect on her life, causing her to dabble in coke/heroin/kryptonite and keeping her trapped in abusive relationships. In fact if it wasn’t for the whole Vietnam thing, I would say that she had it worse than Forrest himself. But you have to wonder – could she have avoided all of this?


I Retract My Previous Hatin’….

July 6, 2007


I can’t front – it was dope.

Just enough action, just enough humor. Shia failed to disappoint, the 5 minute Bernie Mac scene was comedy, and Tyrese (I can’t believe I’m typing this) did not deliver any corny “I’m just here to get black people in those seats” lines….but then again that’s probably because he only had 4 lines throughout the whole thing. The robots (sans the cliché “THUG KILL NIGGA” Jazz) all had interesting personalities as well.


Beautiful…I Just Want You To Know…

July 5, 2007


Its as simple as this:

Step 1: Pop 2-3 Vitamin B-12 pills

Step 2: mix 1 oz Hennessy® cognac with 1 oz Grand Marnier® orange liqueur

Step 3: Hold on to your slippers, Dorothy…

This little pagan ritual is known as the “Beautiful” – a mixed cognac beverage known for it’s classy look, and for it’s unique taste.
