Hello There...

Hi all. I guess it's safe to say I'm back for awhile for 3 good reasons:

1) I was moved by the concern of my safety in the quake via email (btw, it scared the sh*t out of me, and I was in the big one in San Francisco).

2) If I die in a quake, I don't want my last blog post legacy to be a week old "today in b'days post", haha.

3) Your girl is monetizing her blog a bit, which means I have to get my slacking self together and actually write on my own blog a bit regularly (the nerve). I even answered your recent comments (!).

So, there has been a lot of little, unimportant news...I'll get to some of it. Thanks for all who emailed me about the Black Cinema stamps. I actually wrote about them a while ago in February HERE. I usually write about things way ahead of time, so if it seems like I'm late or not aware of something current, use my searchbar to check the archives.

First up. a funny story Sergio emailed me about the Oprah/Tyler Perry "romance" (lmao):

He just kept complaining to Oprah that he’s this successful film director and yet the paparazzi ignore him,” said a source close to Perry’s camp. “So [while on vacation in Italy] Oprah took him by the arm and said, ‘come on, let’s go take some pictures.'"

According to the source, Oprah made sure the paps got all the shots they needed of the pair while they vacationed with Oprah’s BFF Gayle King in Portofino, Italy last week.“Apparently, he complains a lot to Oprah because she did the same thing for him while they were in L.A. together last year,” said the source.

From IW: Damn, just sad.


Did you know that Charles Dutton served some serious hard time? I didn't. My man has overcome some serious odds. From Variety:

Random House's Crown Books will publish multihyphenate Charles Dutton's memoirs in 2010. The book's working title is "From Jail to Yale.''

In 1968, at age 17, the Baltimore native was convicted of manslaughter, and he served 7½ years in prison.

Less than two years later, he went back to prison after being convicted of possession of a deadly weapon. During his second stint behind bars, he became involved with prison theater groups and after his release went on to college and the Yale School of Drama.

From IW: Interesting.


This is very random: Sanaa Lathan and Nia Long will be two of the voices on "The Cleveland Show" a spin-off of the cartoon "Family Guy". This should be interesting as I am usually not amused by the "satire" of Blacks on that show. At all.



What I am amused by, however, is a new blog I discovered called "You Know You Dead Azz Wrong". It is crazy, hilarious, and extremely mean and ignorant. Keep that last part in the forefront of your mind if you click on the link, and view sigh inducing pictures like this one (sorry folkses):

I looked and I'm done. This picture right here? I have NO words.

I'm glad you are safe IW. I felt a little tremor here in SF, but nothing beyond that.

justjudith said...

hey girl, glad ur safe. and wow...there's nothing to say about a tattoo like that. wow...

Sergio said...

You know you dead azz wrong is the GREATEST! I'm hooked!

Regina said...

IW, Glad that all is well with you. I was watching that quake mess on tv, crazy!
Uh, that picture gross, I am certainly not even going to bother going to the site!

MsMarvalus said...

I checked out the site and had a couple of hearty laughs...

But the picture right here? Damn...

Glad y'all are alright with the tremor and all...

nia long is absolutely stunning. face transplant for me please!

as for family guy, it is borderline. it is over here on bbc3and whilst i find it funny, i s don't think it is good satire. i think satire is good when it is not trying, which is a trend i have noticed with some US cartoons like family guy and futurama which seem like they are trying OTT to be sarcastic. having said that, the character of brian is jokes in that thing. he was very UK humour so maybe that is why i get him!

good post, IW!

Invisible Woman said...

Danielle and JJ: It lasted just long enough for me to start getting worried---and I usually don't pay attention to the quakes cause they're over pretty fast. As far as that tattoo--there is so much I could say about that chick that I won't even start.

@Sergio: me too!

@regina: that is def the worst and most tasteless picture on the site--the others aren't as bad. Thanks for the well wishes :-)

Invisible Woman said...

@ Ms. M: Thanks girl :-) As for that site, it is a crack up. Hopefully she'll be able to keep it up and be craetive.

@ aulelia: Nia is beautiful yes? Tho never much of an actress to me. I enjoy Family Guy, but that Black humor they have in there is always a thorn in my side...I better not ever meet Seth McFarlane, the creator!

aulelia said...

@IW, oh no, nia was good in friday as the cutesy girl. i need her hairstyle in that film lol.

Charles Dutton is also an ex of Angela Bassett and he is mentioned prominantly hi her and Courtney B. Vance's book - Friends: A Love Story. By the way, it's a fantastic read.

She tells of how Dutton cheated on her with the woman who would become his wife.

Invisible Woman said...

@anonymous: oh hell no! I didn't know that....Charles cheating on Angela? Ballsy as hell!

Tyler Perry needs to get his ass out of the closet ASAP.
