Thursday's Tidbits...

Anyone watch the premiere of Black.White. of FX Network last night? Anyone? (Saw your name in the credits, Ms. Ahmad!) Check out Emerging Phoenix's recap.

Going to watch Lil' Kim's Countdown to Lockdown on BET?

Supa is happy to report that as of sometime last week, her machine became full and is no longer accepting new messages: (lmao)


Finally: leaving you with a quote from one of Supa's favorite flics:

"Life is filled with goodbye's Eve. A million goodbyes..and it hurts every time. Sometimes I feel like I've lost so much, I have to find new things to lose...All I know is, there must be some divine point to it all...it's just over my head.. And when we die, it'll all become clear and we'll say: So that was the damn point...and sometimes, I think there's no point at all, and that's the point...All I know is, most people's lives are a great disappointment to them...and no one leaves this earth without feeling terrible pain..and if there is no divine explanation at the end of it all..well..that's just sad..."

I'm first...perhaps!!!

I didn't see Black.White. If you did, please share...

Supa said...

Hey Cocoa! I caught it. Will reserve final critique until the episodes are complete (it's a six part series, I believe) but what I saw was interesting. From the make-up, to the dialogue.

The white dude (who is made up as a brotha) is on the "black men just look for racism" kick. For now.

The young white chick really LOOKS like a young sista, and she's in a spoken word poetry performance group. She's nervous but she seems open, respectful, and receptive re: her experience with black folks.

More to come... :)

Hey Supa! I missed it gonna try to TIVO the repeat though. Thanks for sliding through my spot...come on back anytime.

Me said...

it was interesting - I think the way that black/white relate to each other is wild

That Girl Tam said...

Now you KNOW I didn't watch no TV last night after the fuckin evening I had!! *sigh* And girl I love me some Eve's Bayou...LOVE IT!!! And yes, that is one of the greatest parts in the movie...

Miss Ahmad said...

Supa, thanks for the shout out! Black.White was a labor of love that spanned the course of almost 2 years, i am soo glad that it has finally aired the public can chime in!

It's amazing to be apart of television that will truly change the game!

this project changed me...it made me realize how very powerful the images of media are and can be!

Single Ma said...

I missed it! I've been looking forward to seeing this all week and it completely slipped my mind. Damn that ANTM! OMG I can't wait til next week. I need a rerun.

This show definitely has the potential of changing the world. Congrats Miss Ahmad!

Mwabi: My lil' sis BD is this weekend. Gettin' kinda melancholy, that's all....

DAMN, u feel better if I was singing 'it's hard out here for a pimpette?" lol :)

dpm said...

I misseded-it. I was wanting to peep. I guess I will catch up later.
It just reminds me of that Saturday Night Live skit with Eddie Murphy. That ish was fuh-nee!

Supa said...

Word, DPM! I was thinking about the Eddie Murhpy skit while watching it, too.

You know I watched Eve's Bayou twice and I didn't get that quote like I did when I read it here. How unfortunately true.

Sidebar:

Did you know that Eve's Bayou was on over 75% of Critics top ten movies of that year

AND

Didn't get nominated for any types of Awards?

That just shows to go you. And I don't think it was gender based more than I do race based. Roger Ebert actually called it the best movie of the year for that year (He's also got jungle fever) but THAT'S BESIDES THE POINT :p

I know it doesn't matter what others feel about our bodies of work, but let that have been another group of individuals that had made it. . .It would have been the toast of Hollywood.

Supa: I'm out. Holla

Supa said...

SPEAK on it, P! Eve's Bayou is phenomenal, easily a classic. So sorely underrated..

But WE know what beautiful film making is - so fuck whoever else 'aint knowin'!

Genesis said...

oh snap! that is my favorite movie...or one of them. i have a lesbianic crush on that girl...u should see her now...she's 19..but she's legal. she looks good.

pause no brokeback

Cocoa Girl said...

Ah, dayum. I need cable (big a$$ pout).

"Roger Ebert actually called it the best movie of the year for that year (He's also got jungle fever) but THAT'S BESIDES THE POINT :p"

Too crazy, P, too crazy...LMBAO!!!

:p


WORD! and that shit has to be one of the most underrated black films of all time...every other motherfucker was watching soul food.

it did get nominated for NAACP image awards, and jurnee (eve) got robbed for best young actor when brandon hammond (soul food) got it. that was some bullshit..i wanted her to win...she was so good.

if more motherfuckers was watching that shit....they wouldnt have thought the megan good just came out of the woodwork when "21 questions" came out. MFs was acting like they never saw her ass before. BONG. I'm still mad to this day.

Supa said...

lmao @ doc: "no brokeback"

Meagan Goode & Jurnee Smollet (sp?) did their thizzle in this movie. Basically the entire cast was awesome.

Genesis said...

oh yeah...and megan good career...as far as the quality of her acting and her roles have deteriorated since EB. real talk.

Shawn said...

I saw Eve's Bayou last month, my first time in a few years. It was so much I missed the first two or three times I watched. Truly a classic. I have to get the DVD for my collection.

Supa said...

FYI - Turned to Lil' Kim's special. I switched after 10 minutes, couldn't do it.
