According to Sandra Rose the next edition of Donald Trumps' The Apprentice will include a celeb line-up including one of my favorite people former boxing Heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis. I haven't watched The Apprentice in a while but I will definitely tune in to see Lennox.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot, that Omarosa person is coming back to The Apprentice again (Donald must be desperate).
For all you Amy Winehouse fans, like me, you may have heard that Amy has a new album out. Well don't be fooled. It's not really a new album. Just new to us here in the U.S. The album called Frank is Amy's debut album from 2003. Although the album is not new, from what I hear you won't be disappointed. The album is very 'jazzy' and got great reviews. I plan to buy it on my next download binge. I'll let you know more then.
Have you seen the trailers for the two "Black" films coming out this holiday season? First there is American Hustle starring Katt Williams. Can't quite remember who Katt Williams is? Well he's the one who attended the recent BET awards with a noose around his neck. Snoop Dogg, who is currently banned from entering Great Britain, will also be in the film. Too bad he's not banned from the U.S. This is one film I won't be seeing.
The other film is This Christmas starring Regina King (the voice of the Boondocks) and R&B singer Chris Brown. From what the trailer looks like the movie does not really have a plot. Just a family gets together for Christmas and the hi-jinks ensue kind of a thing. I think I'll pass on this one too.
Do they make any Black films that aren't gangster films or comedies? The last one that I remember was Akeelah and the Bee. Oh, sorry I forgot about the Tyler Perry film. I did hear that was good.
Anyway I'm not excited about any films this holiday season.
On a better note I bought Alicia Keys' new album As I Am yesterday. I normally download music but on some occasions I still buy Cd's. This was one of those occasions. I love the song No Way.
I saw Alicia perform the song Sunday night on the American Music Awards. It was a good performance (except for the Beenie Man part).
I wanted to give a link to the youtube of Alicia's performance but this is what I found, "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Dick Clark Productions, Inc." Drats! Foiled again by Dick Clark.
Moving along to news. Have you heard that Brasil has made a very, very, very big new oil discovery off the Brasilian coast? I wonder if it will bring gas prices down? Read about it here.
This past weekend I took a test. You may have heard about it. It's a test to detect if you have a preference for White people or Black people. It's called the IAT (Implicit Association Test). My result was; Your data suggest that you have little or no automatic preference between African American and European American.
Apparently just 17% of those who take the test score no preference. I guess that's a good thing not having a preference right? I was really surprised. On one part of the test it asks if you think you would have a preference. I said yes, toward African Americans. According to the chart, only 2% of takers show a preference for African Americans compared to White people. And 27% show a preference for White people compared to Black people.
The test is given by Harvard University. Here is the (link) if you want to take it. If you do let me know how it went.
That's it for now!
