WEBSERIES: Black and Single

I am all about the gaining popularity of web series.  Writers and directors are taking control of how the media portrays African-Americans in mainstream media by creating their own platform and specialized audience.  Here is my latest obsession, a series entitled "Black and Single" written and directed by the talented Jay Ali who I got a chance to speak with regarding the background and creation of the show.

Ali expressed how the idea to create the show came about due to his feeling that African-Americans are not portrayed to look or act like real everyday Black people on network television.  Poor writing, production, and the rise of reality television are a few of the things Ali attributes to this inaccurate portrayal (he even thinks Black porn is suffering from the aforementioned as well!) and are causing scripted television shows to become the last of a dying breed.  It is through generosity, dedication of FREE time, and the belief that his team has in the success of "Black and Single" that this show is currently being made possible.

The web series takes place amidst the back drop of the dating scene in Atlanta, Georgia where two young black and single characters, Oni and Jessie, struggle to find love.  They continuously and inadvertently cross pathways and it appears they could be perfect for each other, only problem is, will they ever officially meet?  Check out the first episode below:

My Review of Nicole Ari Parker's Gym Wrap (VIDEO)

A few weeks ago, I did a post on Nicole Ari Parker's Gym Wrap, the hair wrap created for Black women who work out.  Since then, I have gotten a lot of email request, text messages, and tweets about me trying it and if it worked.  I made a video so you all could see the before and after to decide if you want to purchase it.  Besides, I think it's better to see a review/video from a consumer versus what is on her website as you know only favorable results would be posted.  So here is my video post from an everyday Joesphine like myself:

Ask Yourself Why DID You Get Mauled by a Cheetah?!

I need this woman to reflect on how she's living life.

Violet D' Mello got mauled on her 60th birthday during a trip to a South African zoo.  Apparently the zoo staff has a petting area and Violet thought it would be a great idea to get in the cage with and pet two grown male cheetahs.  While petting the cheetahs, one attacked an 8 year old girl so Violet felt that she was Super Woman and jumped in to save the child but ended up getting chewed up like a 100 calorie pack snack by the cheetahs for more than 3 minutes.  While she was getting chewed up, her husband continued snapping pictures of her attack which are now viral.  Best part?  They now want to sue the zoo!

Adding a Title Doesn't Save You From Being a Hoe

Basketball Wives is one of my guilty pleasures in life.  I love to watch a ratchet broad get ratchet from the confines and comfort of my home and text and tweet my friends about it.  It's fun to live vicariously through reality stars ignorance.  This post is inspired by the ignorance that is Royce Reed and her dating decisions.  Not only does she look 18, she acts 18 too.

While I don't agree with a grown adult man or woman "dating" someone for months on end taking on roles of a boyfriend or girlfriend without some sort of title, or people dating for years having multiple children and never knowing if marriage is a possibility, I am strongly against serial monogamist.  Ladies, learn from Royce on Basketball Wives...throwing a title on a guy you date just so you can have sex with him doesn't save you from being a hoe.  Let me explain further:
