Help Me Understand.

Creflo’d.

What do y’all think of Creflo, man? Usually I steer clear of putting out public opinions when it comes to pastors and such. I usually refrain because I know how easy it is for the words of a pastor to be twisted and misconstrued by public opinion. I ...

I am a Family Guy fan. Let me fix that.   I was a Family Guy fan. When the first episode debuted after a Patriots Super Bowl win in 1999.  I, like many others, became a bigger fan while the show was running in rerun loops on Cartoon Network.  I was on ...

Whoever the terrorists are, they won.

America is a super proud country. We like to think of ourselves as being the biggest and baddest nation on the planet. We get nervous when other countries do anything better than us. ANYTHING. We constantly want to be the best at all sports, the best at c ...

Don’t Do This Bro.

Two weeks, two high profile (albeit one more high profile than the other) took to social media to public shame their significant others. I guess this is a thing in 2014 now. Back in my day when you had a problem with your lady it was between you, her and ...

#EricGarner.

Just last week, Chris wrote a post about his lack of words for the Darren Wilson [non]indictment. I agreed with ever sentiment he expressed. Well, friends, as I’m writing this it is December 3, 2014. It was just announced that the officer who choked ...

400 Years a Slave.

Head in the Sand.

  All of the coverage.  All of the opinion.  All of the rhetoric.  I am done with all of the Ferguson, Missouri coverage. I am done with the back and forth arguing about who deserved what, and how he got it.  This rant is the last that I can stom ...

Dead and Gone.

I’ve held my tongue for as long as I can, but no longer. The comedy marketed to and generally consumed by black folks is awful. “Black” comedy is obvious, stereotypical and mean spirited. I’ve read that comedy is based on surprise. ...

No Mall Proposals Outchea.

I graduated from college eight years ago. In all that time I’ve have not proposed to a woman. I have not dated a woman long enough to even consider saving the three weeks (or is it days?) salary to buy a ring. I could chalk it up to me just being we ...

Rants of a supersetter.

America’s New Religion.

As we close out the year, the close of this week got me thinking; America now has an official religion. Chris Rock joked in the past that America worships money.  That is true, but even the almighty dollar seems to have taken a backseat to a new deity. ...

Social Media Has Ruined News.

Every morning I turn to CNN to see what’s been going on in the world that I need to know about. This is crucial during the summer months, because there are no sports of any importance to me going on and ESPN is usually stuck on baseball highlights a ...

Nice Guys Fini…Whatever.

I was texting a friend last night and at one point in the conversation we began to talk about the movie Boomerang. This was kind of random, but really those are the kind of conversations I enjoy the most. Whenever I think about the movie Boomerang my mind ...

Crossing The Line.

Before this week, many people would be hard-pressed to tell you two things about the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver.  Drafted in the 5th round of the 2010 NFL Draft, Cooper has been a reliable receiving target of Philly quarterback Michael Vick.  Yes ...

Thoughts on the Fast Food Workers Strike.

I’ll admit, I was unaware that there was such a thing as a one-day strike for fast food workers until yesterday (Tuesday, 7/30). I had no idea. So my knowledge about it doesn’t go much further beyond an article I read online today and a video ...

Monday Potpourri.

A couple random thoughts from the weekend. This weekend I went and saw Fruitvale Station. The film was about the last day of Oscar Grant’s life before he was killed by Oakland transit police. The film was cinematically and visually wonderful. It was ...

No More #BlackTwitter.

Today is a short post, but one in which I would like to submit my retirement from #BlackTwitter. A sad day indeed. Well, not quite. I was moderately adopted into #BlackTwitter a couple of years ago and at first I enjoyed my time. I was able to see hilario ...

(Un)Healthy Addictions.

Full disclosure moment:  I have addictions. Now, I’ve never smoked weed or cigarettes, although I did take a puff of my cousin’s Black n’ Mild once (gross).  I rarely drink, and when I do it is nothing more than a glass of wine or cham ...

The Incredibles.

Yesterday, Erik touched on the good old Boaz story (that’s like 8 times on ThaWell.net, if you’re counting).  So….another relationship/Boaz discussion today.  However… a) I will not be linking, showing or playing that horrible so ...

Are You Not Entertained?.

Top 10 Worst Cars of the Past 20 Years.

There have been some really poorly manufactured cars in this world.  In the 70s, there was the Gremlin and the Chevette, and in the 80s there was Chrysler Shadow and the Ford Mustang.  But in 90’s and 00’s, there should be no excuse for poor ...

I’m Starting To Not Like President Obama.

It’s true.  Sad, but true.  It’s not because I reject his premise and stance on social or political issues.  It’s not because of his State of the Union speech either, because honestly, I missed it so didn’t get to hear what he said. The reason ...

2012, We Hardly Knew Ye.

Punishments That Fit the Crime.

I think that it is clear that we live in a society where prison systems are more like revolving doors.  Criminals are made better criminals in prison and statistically are more likely to be a repeat offender than a rehabilitated citizen. This should not ...

Donald Trump can kick rocks.

If you haven’t already noticed, Donald Trump is kind of a ridiculous human being. Highly annoying. Highly irritating. Near the top of my list of people that I wish would go away. During the years that President Obama has been in office, Trump has de ...

You Too Can Instantly Become My Favorite.
