In the interview he said that he doesn’t participate on Facebook or Twitter as he didn’t want to lose his focus and clarity that he brings to his blog which is his primary focus and he then went on to say “Most people are a wandering generality rather than a meaningful specific” which from my research is a quote from Zig Ziglar which he said, indicates that people who lack clarity about their life purpose weaken their effectiveness to a massive degree if they don’t get clear and motivated about what they want most out of life.

Google has worked on vast improvements to its word processing program since it launched in 2007, including the addition of more than 200 updates to the core apps suite in the past year. These changes are apparently causing some users to make the switch from Microsoft Word. Word?!

When people are trying to be sensitive about race but they don’t know what to say, they usually go with, “Well, race is a complicated issue.” Except, no, it’s not. Race is one of the least complicated issues that there is, because it’s made up. It’s arbitrary. It’s as complicated as goddamn Santa Claus.

I haven’t posted comedy for a while because, well, blogging is such serious business (tee-hee). But seeing this post of Chris Rock’s Saturday Night Live bit at PlayaHata.com has caused me to lighten up. He takes the issue of Hillary vs. Barack to a higher plain.
Funnyman Steve Harvey claims his attorney, Ricky Anderson, merely sought to protect his packaged, do-good, likeable, Christian-type image when filing for divorce in Texas. Ex-wife Mary Harvey is now suing the couple’s attorney who represented both in the proceedings.
Planned for a fall 2008 release, Robert Teitel and George Tillman, Jr. will produce Humboldt Park to star John Leguizamo and Freddy Rodriguez. The family dramedy will be directed by Alfredo De Villa.
Oscar winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. has at least a couple of films in the works, Dirty and Untitled Gehenna Project. The latter film includes the wickedly sculpted Franky G [photo], Taryn Manning, and Valerie Cruz. Indulging his fetish for humor, Cuba toys with Dan Snierson for a silly Q&A.
Happy birthday Tyra Banks, Jay-Z, Marisa Tomei, Jeff Bridges, and Beach Boy Dennis Wilson. Love the song Don’t Worry Baby for which writer Brian Wilson confesses the Ronettes’ Be My Baby was the inspiration.
I promise that watching this outrageous clip of Bruce Willis on David Letterman will cause you to laugh to tears. So if you’re at work, beware.
Don Imus returns to the air with new cast-mates Karith Foster and Tony Powell, both African Americans. My, my! Is the Age of Tokenism on the decline?
Showtime bills the five filmmakers in its “Latino Filmmaker Showcase” as “winners,” but there’s clearly one winner and four runners-up. Gustavo Mercado’s “Sensitive” is by far the most accomplished of the short films, and Showtime wisely awarded Mercado first prize and $30,000 in its Latino filmmaker contest. I am not alone in truly loving the series.
Actor Brad Pitt said on Monday he wants to build 150 environmentally friendly homes for families displaced by Hurricane Katrina in a hard-hit New Orleans neighborhood. Angelina Jolie is like a modern-day Mother Teresa with her humility, only Phoine! They are redefining the term “power couple”.
Madonna’s hubby Guy Ritchie will soon release his new film Revolver that includes the weighty cast of Jason Statham, Andre Benjamin, Ray Liotta, Togo Igawa, Terence Maynard, Vincent Riotta, Mercedes Grower, Mem Ferda, and Serge Soric. Cop a feel right here.

Her staff shuddered and trembled at his request. Yet who could deny that magnificent magnitude of talent and achievement? Who could resist that face? All were on pins and needles before his surprise appearance. Despite the valid trepidation, Jaime Foxx pulled off a jubilant triumph when he and Rascal Flatts performed for a deserving Oprah on Oprah, Friday. And for this performance, Gary LeVox’s voice was superb. At this writing I’ve enjoyed that number several times, having yet to view the remainder of the program. The Holidays, Country style.
After hobnobbing with the gentries late Saturday afternoon I arrived home and stumbled upon College Hill: Interns on BET. Similar to NBC’s The Apprentice, this reality competition has the telegenic Dr. Ian Smith deciding the outcome of challenges to determine who stays and who goes. However, unlike NBC’s offering, this one has a younger group that includes a lot more smooching and hooking up. The show yields a bit of redemption for executive producer Tracy Edmonds, responsible for Who’s Your Caddy. But the website reflects College Hill: Virgin Island. Hmmm?
Are we caught up in consumption instead of investing? BET’s Meet The Faith, hosted by Ian Smith (minus the “doctor” title) had as guests this Sunday corporate attorney and banker Donald Smith, BET correspondent Jeff Johnson, and co-chair of the National Ten Point Leadership Foundation Rev. Eugene Rivers. They discussed and examined people tithing vs. church tithing, churches creating credit unions, and more. Carlos Watson interviewed Oprah Winfrey in South Africa regarding her philosophy of philanthropy. Not just TV. Tele-Vision. Surprisingly excellent fare. Reginald Hudlin’s doing a fine job.
On the heels of the weekend arrest of four young men who reportedly confessed to the shooting death of Sean Taylor comes even more disturbing news that the high profiles of professional athletes may make them easy targets.
Cited for their excellence in the performing arts – dance, music, theater, opera, motion pictures or television – Brian Wilson, Martin Scorsese, Steve Martin, Diana Ross, and Leon Fleischer received the 30th Annual Kennedy Center Honors. The 2-hour event will air December 26th on CBS.
The battle of the format wars is reaching a crescendo. Not HD DVD vs. Blu-Ray, darn it. It appears major players including Pepsi, Amazon, Wal-Mart, and EMI are singing the praises of distributing music via the MP3 format – that is – without digital rights management, commonly called copy protection. Surely Apple, which holds a loud 70 percent market share of music downloads, will hardly become mute to this sonic boom.
An angry outburst at a news conference from Montel Williams caused several reporters to feel so threatened that the incident warranted an apology from the talkshow host and prescription medicine advocate.
