Monetizing Mo’ne

The irony is that the real Mo’ne Davis herself, even at the age of 13 playing in the LLWS, had enough foresight to know that her competitive baseball career was living on borrowed time, that once they hit puberty, the boys will all of a sudden start throwing a lot harder, while she won’t, therefore her future athletic ambition is in basketball and specifically the University of Connecticut.

I’d like to predict that this will be a ratings bust.  But then again, it involves a black woman as the central character, and when you’re dealing with black women audiences, they really have a way of surprising everyone.  See:  Scandal, Blackish, Empire, Real Housewives, Basketball Wives, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, and the Tyler Perry movies.  If Pitch isn’t counterprogrammed against another black women favored show, I bet they’ll made it appointment viewing.  Especially if, considering the promo poster above is any hint, sexual innuendo between her white teammates and her is a recurring theme.  Which is why BW love Scandal.





Anton Yelchin Joins the 27 Club

Read all about it.

Even though, statistically speaking, there is no 27 Club, it is an interesting coincidence and curiosity.

And to ease your troubled mind, Adele turned 28 last month.





Internet of Things

Season 2 Episode 9 of “The Garfield Show,” episode title “Night of Apparatuses.”

Netflix streaming has it.

The Internet of Things just might wind up turning out that badly.

The second short in this same episode, “Land of Hold,” is also a hoot.





Smallest Violin

Because there were no affirmative action Oscar nominations given to black actors or black-ish movies, there’s pressure on this year’s host, Chris Crock, to drop out and boycott.

This means that to protest the lack of affirmative action in nominations, they want the affirmative action host not to do the only affirmative actiony thing about this year’s Oscars.

Just, lame.

If we crackers had our act together, you black people would be sooooooooooooooooooo fucked.





Straight Out of the Oscars

Los Angeles

While Straight Outta Compton did receive on Oscar nomination, the #OscarsStillSoWhite crabs have to realize that AMPAS was never going to reward that movie with hardware.

Why not?

Because the movie portrayed one Mr. Jerry Heller as being decidedly less than ethical with N.W.A. members’ finances and accounting.





The Empire Strikes Back

Seriously?

Things must be going pretty well in her life and her wing of politics must be going swimmingly, if she’s reduced to complaining about this.

Because today is Saturday.

Considering what time of year it is, his best Christmas song.

Kudos to my biggest fan for complete and comprehensive coverage of The Chairman of the Board’s career in the months leading up to today.
