theClippings | #AaliyahMovie Failed Sparking #LifetimeBeLike Tweets and Instagrams

November 16, 2014

Social media is the new Nielsen when it comes to television viewing.  Before twitter, I rarely watched TV.  Now like most, can’t tweet or instagram without it.  Such was the case with #AaliyahMovie. Box of tissues at hand and ready for an emotional rollercoaster, I was ready to shoot myself shortly after opening credits. BAD! The movie was BAD! Not bad as in good either.

Lifetime Movie Aaliyah sparks #LifetimeBeLike tweets

Takenover by Wendy Williams production as her new pet project, Wendy tried to nurse the movie via social media while at the same time performing at an appearance. Didn’t help. Can’t wait to see how Williams spends reaction to #AaliyahMovie live on her show come Monday.  Ratings are one thing but hate is another — and viewers hated the movie.

The brunt of punchlines fell on Lifetime network for it’s casting of such iconic hip hop characters — throw in story-line, script, acting, music choices, etc etc. “Karma” tweet by movie’s original lead actress was priceless.

Let’s scroll back the tweets and instagrams for the hilarity that ensued with #LifetimeBeLike

Sunset: Herman J Russell Death Notice | Obituary

November 15, 2014

Clipped from Black Enterprise — Death Notice — Herman J Russell

Herman J. Russell, the iconic entrepreneur who built the nation’s largest black-owned construction and real estate firm, as well as much of the Atlanta skyline, died today at the age of 83. He was also a behind-the-scenes financial backer of the 1960s Civil Rights Movement led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., later playing a critical role in the construction (both literally and in terms of economic and civic participation for African Americans) of the “New South” Atlanta during the administration of the city’s first black mayor, Maynard H. Jackson Jr. Russell was the first black member of Atlanta’s Chamber of Commerce and the second black person to lead the organization as its president.

theClippings | Bill Cosby had no conversation for NPR when it came to rape allegations | Listen

November 15, 2014

What are we waiting for? Where there are allegations, should there not be answers — especially when it comes to rape? But William “Bill” Cosby had no conversation for NPR on the subject during recent “Conversations” interview.  Surprisingly Cosby appeared in the interview where other interviews have been cancelled or postponed.

With wife by his side to talk about art, Cosby went silent when interviewer changed subject from art to rape. Listen

SIMON: This question gives me no pleasure, Mr. Cosby, but there have been serious allegations raised about you in recent days. You’re shaking your head no. I’m in the news business. I have to ask the question – do you have any response to those charges? Shaking your head no – there are people who love you who might like to hear from you about this. I want to give you the chance. All right, Camille and Bill Cosby – they have lent 62 pieces from their collection of African and African-American artists to create an exhibit called “Conversations: African and African-American Artworks In Dialogue.” It’s now on display at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art through early 2016. Thank you both for joining us. From transcript – read more
