From the moment that I read that Ryan Coogler would be teaming up with Michael B. Jordan again I knew that whatever movie they did would be magic. When I heard that it was for a Rocky spinoff I got exponentially more excited! I decided to watch interviews as to why he decided to do this movie and Coogler said in the interview how he would sit down with his father and watch the Rocky movies. Coogler’s father always said that Rocky teaches you so much about just stepping out there and putting your best foot forward no matter what…

To all the retail associates, I sit here thinking about you all as you get ready for a fierce battle. The animals that are better known as customers have been lining up and waiting for the time to strike. They’ve been stocking piling weapons known as coupons and sales ads in order to break you down but you cannot let them win. A few of the experienced warriors of retail know what to expect. They know what kind of monsters their up against and I believe they will be prepared. I’m most concerned about the ones just entering battle. I…

For many young athletes not making the team can be one of the most devastating feelings they experience. Getting cut from the team can often hinder athletes from pursuing professional sports. A dream less than 1% of athletes realistically achieve. Trust me I have been there before, most athletes have. It’s normal to ask a young school kid what they want to be when they grow up and their response be shamelessly genuine. “I want to be a professional ______ player.” As a parent, sure you encourage them. Tell them they can be anything they want to be. That’s your…

This is truly the end of an era. The hunger games started off as a huge hit right away. It catapulted Jennifer Lawrence from independent actress to globally renowned star. Just like J Law’s star power the hunger games has been building towards an amazing climax. The games were sadistic, the emotional repercussions were confusing, and you find yourself racking your brain on what to think. Throughout all that we have been through with the hunger games, you should know that the ending is as satisfying and great as you could expect. Throughout this entire series we have been captivated…

What we feed our souls will manifest its way into our actions. This applies to our friends, preachers, television shows and movies, and even the music we listen to. Often times we simply wave music off and say that it’s just something that we are having fun to. But 90% of the time if the beat or song is to playback (even if its years later) we will remember most of the lyrics that were associated with it. Which should make a light go off in your head that these lyrics have crawled their way into your brain and made…

I first discovered John Mulaney randomly while on a Pandora comedy station one day. Instantly he was funny. It was as if he’s settled into how weird and out of whack he is and could just relate his awkwardness to people’s silly misconceptions of him. When I first heard New in Town I didn’t know what to expect, but what I got was gut twirling laughs. So I was excited to see his new show premiere on fox, but sadly it was canceled after some bad ratings. So imagine how elated I was when I saw that he had a…

Marriage is legally recognized as the union of two people becoming partners in a relationship. When done correctly, marriage is about love, emotion, and building a legacy with your partner and best friend. However, over the years the definition and sanctity of the union has gone through many changes.Marriage has seen wavering changes in the aspect of perseverance, specifically the “until death do us part” portion of the vows. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, the divorce rate was close to 70% percent nationwide. But some couples managed to find the flowers amongst the weeds. Married in 1984, my parents have…

Kids are hilarious, but when you throw in hilarious kids who understand technology and mix it with their parents who don’t understand technology it makes for some of the greatest laughs. Auto correct can be really annoying except when you use it on your parents. These things are actually way funnier than prank phone calls. Here are 8 of the funniest auto correct pranks. This mom is cool as hell! We have to figure out why she’s so obsessed!? Apparently cleaning the room is priority number 1-10! Well damn mom!? Oh yea, this mom just wants her daughter to party!…

Drawing inspiration from your past is something that is getting lost in the shuffle in today’s day and time. The ones who can tap into this part of themselves and create something that can inspire the future is a team we all need to take serious. These people aren’t motivated by money and that means they can’t be bought. The team will continue to do what’s best for the people and that is a lost art. When I talked to the owners of the clothing company Black Nostalgia I understood what they wanted to bring, and that is the pride of…

CeeLo has been really making his way into a different market as of late. He’s no longer the goodie mob cee-lo, he’s a singing man with an old school spirit. CeeLo really established himself in the pop market with his last album and since then he’s been exercising his vocals. I’ve got to say that heart blanche really does blend pop and soul together for an album that is fun, introspective, personal, and very enjoyable. CeeLo brings an amazing energy to each and every one of his songs in this album. When he wants you to feel pain and hurt…
