Obama opens this doc by saying ‘Some people are attracted to the power that is part of being in the spotlight, others work best behind the scenes. Clarence Avant is the latter.’ Truer words never spoken, cause 99% of the audience of this Netflix doc will surely have never heard of this man… Like a […]
It’s not an exaggeration to say I idolized Michael Jackson as kids. There’s no movie star, athlete or musician even close to his level now. So I’ll start there and add, my head hurt watching this, and I’ve seen/heard enough of the stories calling the centerpiece of this documentary an opportunist and a liar. I […]
Hard to mess up my favorite song ever. But honestly, this remix works, because it works. On its own. Enjoy!
Quincy Jones has had a career and a life that just won’t me duplicated. EGOT. He opened the door for Oprah to go to the next level. He opened the door for Will Smith to go to the next level. Nearly any creative I know would feel like his 90th biggest accomplishment would easily […]
Tis the weekend! Back on my grind, so I pulled from my favorites. I was never the biggest Ne Yo fan, but have to give credit where it’s due. This is one of the better covers of one of my favorite MJ songs. Have a good one folks.
Humpday for most of you, the end of the work week for me. Heading to a homie’s wedding, so this feels like a perfect song to go out on. Have a good one folks. See you Sunday.
Happy MLK weekend everyone! Some of the Black Panther conversations I’ve had this week turned into ‘What other pop culture things felt like everyone had to see it right away (before we had social media)?’ Michael Jackson video premieres definitely were on the list, thus today’s choice (particularly with the cast, setting and director […]
The Halloween/creep factor of today’s video is a happy coincidence. Got hit with an 80s playlist today and this gem popped up. Have to chuckle because, in my entire life, I’m pretty sure this still holds the title for ‘We all know why this became a hit record, right?’ Enjoy!
If you know me personally, you know my personality, you know the city I’ve called home in my adult life, you know the shorts I’ve written and directed…then you know this man’s influence. Happy Birthday Mike.
Michael Jackson is still not a genre of music, but now that Justin Timberlake is a middle aged man (yeah I said it), this kid can definitely own the corner. Bonus points for putting little MJ in his video. Enjoy!
