December 12, 2013
As heard on Toni and Griff Show | TGSMM.com
Hammer Hammer — write the check Hammer! You know the one. The one the IRS is looking for … to the tune of $798,033.48. The story has cycled thru so many sites, Hammer should ask for a cut of content checks. Fearing he won’t write the check the IRS has decided to just dip in and take it – ALL that’s owed from ‘96 and ‘97. Critics still cite mismanagement of monies during Hammer’s lavish lifestyle from his gyrating trend setting hire er’body dance craze days but Hammer is now one of the top influencers in technology… hanging out and cutting deals with sweet tech start-ups. Don’t get it twisted, Hammer is by far beyond a one trick pony.
Was it baseball signs, gang signs, did he make it up as he went along? World Association of Sign Language Interpreters, Sheena Walter said the movements of the interpreter at Nelson Mandela memorial were unrecognisable. During the Presidents and other speeches, outrage began to build and someone had to answer for it. World Federation of the Deaf Youth Section Braam Jordaan said the interpreter was simply making up his own signs. Where they do that? In world of social media, however politically incorrect, it has become somewhat of a sport to watch the various styles of delivery of interpreters. One of the most popular often took the stage with with former Mayor of New York with her red clad weave bouncing in the breeze. She grew to fame for her animated and entertaining interpreting. Once New YOrk tried to place her during peak storm season with a more professional less entertaining figure – backlash ensued. They quickly brought her back to the delight of viewers. And then there are now those who sign for hip hop concerts. Again, as I said this is all politically incorrect and we should probably be a shame – but clearly we’re watching.
Women and minorities don’t fair well during the Oscars, so SAG and Golden Globes are ones to watch. Many believe a Golden Globe could lead to an Oscar — so even more reasons to watch. SAG nominations are out and Golden Globes are on the way. Who’s got the buzz – don’t sleep on Oprah – she’s the one to have on the red carpet and nomination list this season. Award watchers are buzzing to see if Oprah’s painful depiction of a depressed alcoholic shutin bride to an adversary of change aka The Butler will pick up nominations. Oprah picked up best support nominations from SAG and So far Kerry Washington for Scandal, Angela Bassett for Betty & Coretta, Don Cheadle House Of Lies., Are SAG Awards Nominees according to Shadow and Act. And yes, Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role includes Chiwetel Ejiofor for 12 Years A Slave and Forest Whitaker for Lee Daniels’ The Butler. Golden Globes announced at report time — checking twitter – we see Best TV Drama nominees: Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, House of Cards, and Masters of Sex!; Best Drama:12 Years a Slave, Captain Phillips, Gravity, Philomena, and Rush! We’ll have more to come
Where can we see Christmas… not in social media. Gone are the boastful postings of Christmas trees, outdoor decorations, and left overs from the annual hauls from shopping sprees to put presents under the tree. It seems over the last couple of years – friends and friends of friends found themselves with one post in common. “We’ve been robbed.” Some friends were even robbed and posted twice. Homes with abundance of Christmas decorations found themselves victims where Santa and blow up rudolf were victims and even held hostage in some cases. A couple of local politiicians posting their schedule of good deeds and santa like stops were even carjacked in seasons pasts. No more posts saying gone to grandma’s or traveling for the holidays. You never know who’s watching and waiting. Don’t let the Grinch steal your Christmas – Friends rob friends.

As heard on the Toni and Griff show with Michael McFadden | TGSMM.com
Did we watch a real life scandal episode unfold? A picture is worth a thousand words or at least one good rumor. Did a self with prime ministers make first lady Michelle Obama go ham at a Nelson Mandela memorial event. If you’ve been following first lady’s side eyes as captured in photos, then you saw the roll of images which came across streams where it appeared our President was enjoying himself too much while sitting with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Denmark’s Prime Minister Thorning Schmidt. After prime ministers and president Obama posed for a selfie, in footage, first lady appeared to adjust her sleeves and check her mate. Next photos show first lady having switched seats with the president and sitting with her back to the Denmark’s (blonde) Prime minister – see that’s how rumors get started. Inquiring minds wanna know if first lady later went all Mellie on the president once back in the limo. There’s no shortage of the first lady wiping the smile from Presidents face in their history in the white house – can you say #checkMate literally.
Everyone has a dream … for some its to wear a string… string bikini that is … in the Victoria Secrets fashion show which aired December 10th. The show was the talk of the town. A fashion bloggers dream, which I’m not, for me it was about the music. The song and acts chosen while secrets were revealed again and again on the runaway. Move over models, with her own legs to infinity , Taylor Swift had no trouble owning the runway during performances. She shared the stage with Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World, and Neon Jungle. It’s their songs probably still banging in your head if you stayed up to watch.
We told you about controversy surrounding RKelly’s release of his latest album Black Panties – the cover art… well … #askRelly he said and twitter did — unleashing a horrid of questions which made our head spin. The questions ranged from things we can’t say on radio to other things we can’t say on radio involving a whole lot of bodily fluids. One question received instant retweets asked RKelly “is this YOU” in an attached photo to which a reply was sent from his account asking the tweeter to “define YOU?” really Rkelly. By the questions fired off from twitter one would have thoguht it was ask a pedophile day – I mean really. It’s obvious, again, while folks love his music, very few people have moved beyond his past transgressions. But I bet you can sing every song… moving on…
What does Billy Joel,Carlos Santana, and Herbie Hancock all have in common. Music — life long music and as such the three join opera star Martina Arroyo and actress Shirley MacLaine in receiving the Kennedy Center Honors. They all have a Kennedy Center honor in common. The ceremony will air December 29th on CBS. The Kennedy Center Honors medallions were presented on Saturday, December 7. Honorees sit with the President and First lady while peers pay tribute. The annual Honors Gala has become the highlight of the Washington cultural year. Each president brings his own unique audience to the events. The President and Mrs. Obama received the Honorees and members of the Artists Committee who nominate them, along with the Kennedy Center Board of Trustees at the White House prior to the gala performance. Did you now the center takes recommendations for honorees.

DryerBuzz Entertainment Report #TGSMM Mama Drama with Mama Joyce Mama Pope Kerry Washington’s Motherhood Shortens Scandal and Madea | As heard on Toni and Griff Show
December 9, 2013
As heard on Toni and Griff Show…
Scandal happened. But Quinn, Olivia, and even Mama Pope ain’t got nothing on Mama Joyce – on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Don’t get knocked out by her blue stacked shoes. #RunToddRun and take Kandi with you.
She’s from Summerhill #nuffsaid. Who? Kandi’s mama. I tweeted Kandi during RHOA to see exactly which part of old school Atlanta her mother reign and she tweeted back that Mama Joyce is from Summerhill, I was like OMG and you should be too. For those that don’t know, half of Summerhill was flattened to make room for Atlanta’s baseball stadiums. Trending right now are scenes from the latest episodes of RHOA over feelings Mama Joyce has and expresses over Kandi’s fiance Todd. Mama Joyce does not like the man and thank God this is not Scandal or Todd would be handled. The women of Summerhill aka Mama Joyce and crew rolled up on Kandi’s wedding dress fitting and straight set it off. Let’s face it, we watch these shows for drama and until now, this season of RHOA has been crickets all the way. NeNe’s happy, civilized and sane – clearly on her med. Apollo and Phaedra – just double coats paint drying. Kenya can twirl on with the wind – blow away. Who else is on the show – bueller bueller. All we have to say is #RunToddRun and take Kandi with you. Here’s your tweet of the week – let’s get it trending – tweet me your favorite Mama Joyce vs Mama Pope quotes with the tags #MamaJoyceQuotes or #MamaPopeQuotes – as we watch the battle of the mama drama on both RHOA and Scandal.
Speaking of Mama Pope… we’ll we can’t speak on it yet. What’s with the delayed Scandal viewing. Every where we go, folks are mums on the scandal talk because there’s always someone saying they haven’t watched it yet. I myself need to go back a few episodes. Speaking of episodes, Scandal is cutting a few due to Kerry Washington’s baby bump. The show cut from 22 to 18 episodes. That’s four less scandal parties – what are we too do? How disturbed are you that there’s less Scandal and why is the show still coming at us piece by piece. Get er done! OMG before I could say I was teamVP the way she put the smack down on Cyrus for his plot to destroy her marriage and candidacy – she put the smack down on her … OMG spoiler. Please hurry up and watch so we can talk about it…
Time for your weekend box office – can you say sleeper weekend. The top three movies split and estimate of $60M dollars – that’s Frozen, Catching Fire and Out of the Furnace respectively. Yet this coming weekend is the one to watch It’s the Hobbit vs Madea with American Gangster and Saving Mr Banks in tow. Hobbit will play on 1800 more screens than Madea. Madea’s box office has been dropping like her stockings – way down – yet Madea’s stage presence stills draws a packed house for Tyler Perry – perhaps that’s where he should keep her. Weekend box will let us know.
Quick shout to Stepp Stewart and cast of A Soulful Christmas now play at Porter Sandford Arts Center. They invited us out yesterday to enjoy the holiday musical. Amazing cast of all ages takes us on a wonderful journey of soulful, holiday, and gospel music. Great for all the family. See videos from our day at the theatre at DryerBuzz.com

VideoBuzz: As heard on the Toni and Griff Show with Michael McFadden, DryerBuzz pauses entertainment to pay tribute to the passing and death of Nelson Mandela by recognized those who share the world stage as humanitarians. What does it take to make self sacrifice and commit to service.
Listen daily for Toni and Griff Show http://TGSMM.com
In honor of the passing of Nelson Mandela, We pause the entertainment report today to talk about greatness – interesting how the two don’t often coincide – well let me tell you. Living in America, we live under a veil of #mediaapartheid, so many americans do not aspire to greatness unless making a concerted effort to venture beyond American media to international media. Not since the war on civil rights has american media truly shown devastation which takes place around the world and here in America. Media has to satisfy imagination of it’s demographic. Which begs question, what does Americans imagine? Who remembers curling up with Life Magazine, National Geographic, Ebony?
While magazines have changed over the years, pop culture stars replacing leaders on their covers, there was still a trail for us to find more to honor in the passing of Nelson Mandela. What are the makings of a humanitarian? A man or woman who decides to give their life to service? A nobel peace prize winner in 1993, winning with Frederik Willem de Klerk quote “for their work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa.”
Who, we wondered, shares such a world stage? What is it to be known around the world for self sacrifice and service. There’s history every but what about the future? Who’s the next Nelson Mandela? Most today are familiar with Nobel prize awards because of Americans MLK, JR and of late President Barack Obama. However, In one click and review of NobelPrize.org, we found a century of peace prize winners, including amazing nobel prize winning WOMEN.
Let’s take a look…
2011 was special for me as three women shared the nobel peace prize award Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee (gobawee) and Tawakkol Karman “for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work” – I remember being excited to blog about at DryerBuzz.com
But who are some of your picks?
Jimmy Carter also won in 2002; Yasser Arafat follow Mandela in 1994; also rounding out top ten are …
Martin Luther King Jr.
Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons
Barack H. Obama
Le Duc Tho
Aung San Suu Kyi
That’s your entertainment report for the Toni and Griff Show with Michael McFadden.

DryerBuzz Entertainment Report #TGSMM Prince Headlines Essence Billy Joel MSG Ceelo Too Green | As heard on Toni and Griff Show with Michael McFadden
December 4, 2013
As heard on Toni and Griff Show with Michael McFadden… DryerBuzz Entertainment Report
Stop! Did you miss the miracle? Apparently we all did. Go to DryerBuzz.com right now and watch raw video of a brother who survived in a sunken tugboat. Video has emerged showing how Okene Harrison is alive today after surviving nearly 3 days in a submerged tugboat. He was in the restroom when the boat capsized; found air pocket and stayed put until divers discover the boat with him alive. Harrison was the cook of a 12 person crew aboard the Jascon 4. You gotta see this. Divers were coming the boat expecting to find bodies but not a live one. Imagine their surprise – no watch their surprise – it’s on video. Buzzing now at DryerBuzz.com Don’t miss the miracles.
Cee Lo may need a miracle. We hear all the time about the drug ecstasy. Cases come and go if they become cases at all. But headlines, speculation, conversation, and can we say felony drug charges are still pending for Cee Lo’s although he feels the case may rule in his favor. The Voice star and coach remains positive. The case stems from a previous dropped sexual assault charge for lack of evidence. “We still out here reppin’! It’s all good!” he said this week. He’s looking for a miracle – sing it with me.
Are you ready for Billy Joel every month? Touted as the fourth “franchise” in Madison Square Garden, Billy Joel will play one concert a month in the famous venue starting January 27th 2014. We’ve heard about shows like this in Vegas, but who doesn’t love New York? Joel says he hasn’t come up with the set just yet and he has to relearn some of his work. The show will definitely become a hot ticket in New York – with many travelers and tourist in the city — the miracle might be in getting a ticket. Rock that!
If you’re a woman and you’re in the headlines at the New York Post then you did something stupid. Remember their formula seems to be women have to be lying crying drying flying off the handle or naked to make their news… well – there’s no shortage.. unless we get a miracle – but a scarf-clad blonde is said to have taken a selfie with a suicidal man on the Brooklyn Bridge – she even smiled in the photo. She was questioned by the paper, became camera and left the scene – they say. But how bad are they that their story became that of the blonde instead of the suicide attempt? Remember we live in public – you already know!
Super Bowl halftime announce already came and went. Does anybody remember the headliner? Will let you think about it while we tell you who’s headlining Essence Festival, the annual vacation trek where millions descend upon New Orleans — not for madi gras – but for Essence Festival which takes place over 4th of July weekend – you already know and probably ready to go – cause it’s PRINCE – yes the purple one – himself!. It’s the vacation planned for all year – the Saints vacate the dome and the stage is set for the best in music, there’s expos, celebrities – everything that is the Essence of summer. The announcement of Prince as a headliner means promoters are pulling out all stops and this may be the best one of all time – on dry land – that was once wet – remember that miracle.
BTW headliner for superbowl is – not trending yet – but it’s Bruno Mars

As heard on the Toni and Griff Show with Michael McFadden… the truth shall set you free or at least get your buzzing!
No turkey baster needed. She went to the source. A real live turkey. Evelyn Lozada is like roger dangerfield in drag. She gets no respect. Deservedly so? The #traumatizedorphan i mean reality star i mean iyanla vanzant #fixmylife dropout recently posted an instagram showing how her system works. With America all up in her tea and busting up her tumultuous relationship with Chad Johnson, Lozada needed a new plan. Seems it’s been six months in the making. She posted a picture of a baby bump. Tongues went to wagging when she went to bragging and the bullseye fell squarely, according to rumor mill, on Carl Crawford, an LA Dodgers baseball player. True or not, they’re linked in Google forever… can you say 18 years to life. Evelyn and Chad divorced in 2012. It’s said the planting of the seed was planned – doh! Just tell the truth – is Crawford your baby daddy. Friends say she’s been in a relationship for more than a year – yeah ok.
Gabe wants Trina Braxton to just tell the truth. Does she still love him? Trina is the one with the fake accent cause she’s the middle child and needs to standout — and that’s pretty much all we can remember and the rest we can’t say on radio. But this relationship has been on and off for seasons — reality seasons that is — playing out on the Braxtons reality show and all up and through instant messages, dm’s and video chat sites. Searching searching searching for which of her sisters can give her relationship advice… moving on….
Paul Walker fans and authorities want the truth. Can’t trust early reports, especially now days when news outlets rush stories in order to trend in social media. Video has surfaced from first impact which may contradict street racing rumors. It’s said that both Walker and Rados (the driver) were racing enthusiast and wouldn’t partake in such. Yet authorities and arm chair social media experts are looking into and disputing various claims even though the area is known for street racing. Witness statements say the car was traveling alone but at a high rate of speed. Skid marks at the scene are said to come from other vehicles. Immediately after crash several cars are shown to pass but many stopped at the scene – some filming the horrific fatality – which of course is available online. Millions upon millions have viewed and want the truth.
Lastly truth we just can’t handle. Kanye West is in a world all his own… well he’s not alone he’s with Kim Kardashian and there’s a baby somewhere. Nobody has the answers and we all want the truth – what’s up with dude? West is on tour and he’s interviewing all over the place. His recent concert in Atlanta meant yet another interview but check this out… after Kanye’s concert friends of friends were looking at their friends updates and pretty much in shock. We saw some that pretty much described the concert as “Satanic… like sitting courtside in “middle of a cult meeting”; “People rocking and swaying with the two handed illuminati sign to the tune of him saying I am God with women dressed in nude costumes and behaving lewdly. young brothers with the Rebel Flag…a hairy beast with red eyes running around the set that was a huge mountain where a white Jesus emerged from the top. The performers gave the image of worshipping a new messiah.”
Should we stop asking Kanye for answers?
Now if that ain’t telling the truth… That’s your entertainment report for the Toni and Griff Show with Michael McFadden. Get the buzz behind the buzz at DryerBuzz.com – read it watch it listen today and every day.

DryerBuzz Entertainment Report #TGSMM Soul Train Awards Paul Walker Hours RIP Backlash Box Office | As heard on Toni and Griff Show with Michael McFadden
December 2, 2013
Hey Griff Toni and Michael…
Welcome back everyone. Hope your holiday was wonderful. Did you get caught up in brawl at the mall or were you in the mix at what some are calling brawl-mart? According to http://blackfridaydeathcount.com/ a site which tracks deaths and injuries — sadly to say we are at 7 deaths with 90 injuries. Shoppers pepper sprayed each other in New Jersey; brawled and tazed each other in Philadelphia. Number of shootings across the country and with such late night shopping this year on Thanksgiving, some deaths occurred from falling asleep at the wheel.
Traveling mercies to those still making their way home and back to work. Be safe.
Here’s what buzzing in the blogosphere and beyond got the good the bad the buzz from Soul Train Music Awards, run it backwards and you might really enjoy it; Paul Walker’s life too fast too furious – we hear his best performance is yet to come in Hours; and we’ll look at your weekend box office… did you go to the movies?
First the good the bad and the buzz from Soul Train Music Awards. The season awards shows are off and running and its interesting to see who comes out for which. This year the soul train awards moved from Atlanta to Vegas and was hosted by Anthony Anderson. The good was no doubt the ending and a few sightings in between like Big Daddy Kane in pink camouflage t-shirt! Of course anytime slick rick and doug e fresh are on stage, you got a party. Hilarious throughout the night was the mock 90’s group Lustacy made up of Anthony Anderson, Carl Payne and Deon Cole. Number of sightings including Vanilla Ice who no longer shys away from his hit Ice Ice Baby! of course you can watch it again and again unlike other award shows. The Buzz are the winners
starting with honors for Dionne Warwick— 2013 Soul Train Legend Award
Best New Artist – K. Michelle
Best R&B/Soul Male Artist – Miguel
Video of the Year – Janelle Monae
Album of the Year – Kendrick Lamar
The Chaka Khan Award for Best R&B/Soul Female Artist – Tamar Braxton
Song of the Year – Robin Thicke ft. Pharell & T.I. – “Blurred Lines”
The bad – the future of R&B all around. If you got then you can get it when you look at who’s holding this category down
Social media is known for what – backlash – so if you jumped in timeline for RIP Paul Walker you probably saw a bit of backlash for not being considerate enough of the driver in the Paul Walker crash – Roger Rodas, a financial adviser and part-time race car driver and collector was behind the wheel. The two perished in a fiery car crash, November 30th over the holiday weekend. Fans of the Fast and Furious franchise were devastated and took to social media where they clashed with others who bash celebrities memorial when lesser known people are also involved. What’s buzzing about this is Walkers death comes two weeks before we are to see him in a different role as 2013 SXSW film “Hours,” gets distribution. the film is set in New Orleans during aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. He plays a father who tragically loses his wife during birth and is left in an abandoned hospital during the history making storm to take care of his premie daughter who can’t survive without a ventilator. In survivor last man standing type of role, Walker needs to carry this film. Early reviews are split. The film is due out December 13 is based on true story. Catch trailer at DryerBuzz.com.
Looks like some of you waited for the holiday to catch a movie if you saw one at all. We chose Kasi Lemmons’ holiday musical BLACK NATIVITY with music director Raphael Saadiq as recommended by our instagram followers. Many say they loved the movie at the same time saying it was predictable – doh it’s a holiday movie. I thought it went too fast and wanted more. With such bold actors, I was looking for a more bolder story. Screen chemistry with Tyrese and Jacob Lattimore was great – more scenes with the two of them could have meant much more for this movie. Attention casting directors – they are the two to book. Even loved the singing and soundtrack. Love love love the scene and song with Jacob and Nas – Motherless Child. Let’s get it trending.
For your box office — Hunger Games 74M, Frozen 66M, Thor 11M and Best Man 8.4M – they held their respective top 4 spots. Homefront grabbed the 5 spots at 9.8, Black Nativity 8 spot at 5M and Spike Lee’s Old Boy hit the low low at number 17 with 1.2 including the holiday.
