THE OBAMAS - Easter 2013

The First Family – Easter 2013

Tyler Perry’s Temptation has to be seen to be believed! Once again, Tyler Perry has made a film that no one else could make. His scripts, directing, choices of performers and pace of his storytelling can’t be duplicated by a trained filmmaker anywhere. No other director, and I include those with Best Director Oscars on their resumes, can do what Tyler Perry does over and over again. I can honestly say that I have never seen a film like this and probably never will again. I left the theater in a daze from what I’d just sat through. It’s going to be a long, long time before I see another film like Temptation.

All things considered – the age-old Celtics/Lakers rivalry in particular – it’s really not that remarkable that Heat president and minority owner Pat Riley told Celtics GM Danny Ainge to “STFU” last week after Ainge said that Heat star LeBron James should be “embarrassed for whining about the referees’ calls” (“Danny Ainge needs to shut the [expletive] up and manage his own team,” Riley proclaimed. “He was the biggest whiner going when he was playing and I know that because I coached against him.”) What was remarkable is how Riley did it – in an official statement released by the Heat’s public relations department.

Chelsea Handler is ugly.

Does anyone really think that Tiger Woods and Nike give a damn what the media, or anyone else for that matter, thinks about his most recent ad?

How you meet someone/get something is usually how you lose them/it. Isn’t that right Jay Leno?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Berry Gordy, Jr is going to outlive everyone he personally signed to Motown.

Imagine what Tony Romo would have gotten from the Cowboys if he’d won TWO playoff games in his career.

Is American Idol still on?

Justin Bieber, Lindsay Lohan and a monkey walk into a club…

Roland S. Martin wasn’t let go by CNN because he’s African-American, he was let go because his shtick isn’t wanted by Jeff Zucker for the new and improved network. Nothing more, nothing less.

Tennis on TV is boring.

The latest Tyler Perry crack, excuse me, “movie”, came in third place with an estimated $22.3 million at the box office, despite receiving what can be described as extremely mixed reviews: critics hated it and his fans, at least those who post on his message board at loved it. But, the diminishing box-office results on Perry’s “non-Madea” films show the persistent problem he has in crossing over with other material.

What new UCLA men’s basketball head coach Steve Alford just did – leaving New Mexico mere days after agreeing in principle to a 10-year extension of his contract – is like a guy spotting another, slightly hotter woman at the rehearsal for his 25th wedding anniversary vows renewal ceremony who tells his wife, “Upon further review…”

Whatever happened to Sarah Palin?

Why is it that the Southern states with the poorest and unhealthiest populations, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina come to mind, are among the ones whose governors are most adamant about NOT accepting Medicare and Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act? Oh that’s right – all have Republican governors who oppose anything from the Obama Administration.

Yes, Doug Gottlieb was on the CBS March Madness studio-show panel to give the “white man’s perspective” just as Ernie Johnson, Jr is there on TNT’s Inside The NBA to translate for those who speak English as a first language, especially on the nights when both Shaq and Sir Charles Barkley are on together.

You know you’re getting old when after going to the Lab to give blood after seeing your doctor, you forget to stop at the pharmacy to pick up your prescriptions. Oh well, the VA will mail them to me. -:)
