This N' That....

This post is just a mish mash of things...feel free to wonder why I'm going off on different tangents....

First off, I listened to a couple of Terrence Howard's songs. I had the same approach as when you go into a deep, cold pool; just take a deep breath and hold it, then jump in. And. Oh. My. God. I actually liked it! I thought it was very different, and it kinda had a 70's soul sound to it. Believe me, it gives me no pleasure to admit this--it is tantamount to admitting to my boss that I shoot up heroin in the bathroom during lunch....who woulda thunk? Not me, that's for sure.....these are truly the last days.

Speaking of music, why is Solange's hair always so mountainous, and when will Andre 3000 stop wearing that stupid hat? Note to Andre Benjamin: that ish is NOT the business--let it go!





I'm glad to see that The Hughes Brothers are doing something besides that pimp mess. From Black Talent News:

Oscar winner Denzel Washington has signed on to star in the post-apocalyptic drama "The Book of Eli" for directing duo Allen and Albert Hughes ("From Hell).

Gary Whitta wrote the original story, with rewrites by Andrew Peckham. The story takes place in the not-so-distant future where America is a wasteland and a lone warrior (Washington) fights to bring society the knowledge that is key to its redemption.

"This is an epic tale, a thriller set in a future uninviting yet hopeful, and its hero could not be batter suited to Denzel Washington," Alcon's Johnson and Kosove told Variety. "The Hughes brothers will bring a bold, contemporary edge to the story and we're excited to have this be our next film."

From IW: Hopefully Denzel and the Hughes' can bring something new to this 'been there, done it too many times' genre.



And speaking of 'been there, done that' do we really need a sequel to "Inside Man"? Me love Clive Owen and all, but....



And speaking of Spike, why is he saying that talkin' greasy about Clint Eastwood will cost him the Oscar for "Miracle At St. Anna"? Ummm...note to Spike: Maybe your movie will prevent you from getting an Oscar, yes? Nobody's even seen it yet...damn.



Is Kelly Rowland's new man a ghost?



Urbanworld Film Festival in The Big Apple, y'all. It starts TODAY. I don't know if it's still the same, but I've been a couple of times and it was very exciting and energizing. Check out all the details HERE.




Why Janet and Jennifer? Not the look, girls....




And finally thank you so much Dirty Red from a "Black Man's View" for giving me this tasty award; "The Brilliante Blog Award". Thought I forgot about you, huh Red? I did forget about the tag, tho (accidentally on purpose! :-) )

Umm, can I speak to IW please?

She must not be here because I know she didn't just write that she listened to this CD and liked it...

tee hee hee...I'm just messing with you girl...you almost make me want to listen to it again...almost.

And tell JHud that with her hair like that, you can tell where her weave begins...not the bizness...

Invisible Woman said...

@Ms. M: Never fear, I am actually here and coherent, and more suprisingly, sober--haha!

As for JHud, those comatose bitties ain't helpin either.

sdg1844 said...

It must be because IW loves Baby Wipes Man so much that she likes his music. That's the only thing I can figure.

IW ain't down with more Pimp-o-logy? Gasp! I hope the Hughes Bros. and Denzel are a winning combo.

Jennifer and Janet get the Nay-No from me. What happened to Janet? I blame JD for all this madness.

The Obenson Report said...

I've read a bunch more reviews of "Miracle" and they all range from average to bad.

Not good for the movie. Not good for Spike. At almost 3 hours long, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little nervous. I'll be seeing it opening weekend.

As for the Hughes Brothers and "Book of Eli," I bet you they'll find a way to make Denzel's character a pimp in the movie - a post-apocalyptic pimp.

Reel Whore said...

I best not tell my wife you liked his CD or she run out to get it.

Solange's hair has to be big enough to hide her massive lack of talent.

St Anna is nearly 3 hrs?! It's called editing Spike, look into it.

Invisible Woman said...

@sdg1844: maybe I was in a state of delirium, I dunno....

You knows I loves movies about pimps, but I find the Hughes Brothers take extremely tired--and unneccessary. Janet's outfit is perplexing; I don't think she knows what to do with herself anymore.

@obenson: LMAO at your comment!

@reelwhore (added you to my blogroll by the way) I won't tell your wife if you don't---I barely wanted to admit it myself!

Def agree with your other 2 comments...

michael a. gonzales said...

funny as usual
where have you disappeared to

Luvvie (aka Queen IG) said...

Solange tries to hard to be "different". The NEVER MATCHING clothes and the yellow lipstick. Trying TOO hard there, chick.

Reel Whore said...

Thanks for the add, I added you too. Now if only people can find your link in my cluttered corner of the web.

I think my wife will be getting the CD regardless. She's a glutton like that.

Invisible Woman said...

@michael: i know, i know--i'll be working from home soon--will have time for everything for once! :-)

@luvvie: welcome! i always say the same thing about her. if you have a naturally different style, folks aren't always saying "why the eff is she wearing that?" ya know?

@reel whore: thanks :-)

make sure you're off to the movies when she's playing it! haha

madame z said...

Solange, yellow lipstick? Really?

Andre, the hat...oh well, I still like him. LOL.

I love the Hughes brothers. I'll go see.

I'll take Clive however I can get him; even in a sequel.

I've heard some good things about Spike's new film...then I looked at the trailer. Hmmm, we'll see. :)
Jeffrey Wright is the shiznit though :) Love him.

Kelly Row :) Looking cute as usual..and yes, her beau's name is Casper LOL

JHud...your WIG is showing, chica. And what's up with her tittyballs? :( *weeping on the inside*

Janet, you're on some space-age shiznit here, but I still love her and plan on seeing her in October ;)

Congrats on your Award, IW! :)

Bygbaby said...

JUd got some long tits! & that weave is ate up.!!! Sorry, had to go there.

Invisible Woman said...

@Madame Z: I LOVE your comments!

@byg: that's ok--those were the sole reasons for posting it--haha!

Eb the Celeb said...

I saw the express (the ernie davis story) via urbanworld week and it was really good

Invisible Woman said...

How was the rst of the festival? i'd be curious to know if you went to anything else...

Sincere said...

hey IW,
I gotta admit, I listened to it and was kinda diging it too.. I know I know he's a weirdo and music is kinda bugged but it was aiight.

belledame222 said...

I kind of like the yellow lipstick/eye makeup, but I am strange like that.

Oh, went to high school with the Hughes Brothers, a year behind them. very suburban it all was. I remember their early efforts on local cable; forget the contents exactly but it was quite a jump from that to, what was their first release again? Menace II Society? I might still have shots of them in my old yearbook somewhere...they were pretty popular and in the swing of things as I recall...

Invisible Woman said...

@sincere: thank GOD i am not alone--i was starting to feel like a freak!

@belledame: hi there...good to see you! :-) what city did you go to high school in?

i wrote on this blog that when i would see them around, they always had a charisma cloud around them...must have been true even back in the day...
