DryerBuzz Entertainment Report: Who’s Talking About You? Sherman’s Super Bowl | MLK Wrap Up | Wonder Women Buzz Atlanta | Go from mediocre to best in Buzz!
January 21, 2014
DryerBuzz Entertainment Report — Read It Watch It Listen today and everyday …
Who’s talking about you? that is the question of the day or shall we say weekend. It was all Erin Andrews could think of when she happened upon an interview with Richard Sherman before he could get out of his feeling after his team clinched a win taking them to the Super Bowl. With this Shermanism in mind – are you the best or just mediocre? Who’s buzzing about you?
Here’s what some are buzzing about to kick off the week. First and foremost Richard Sherman’s team IS going to the super bowl. Who does he play for — the Seahawks. Who are they going against in super bowl — Denver. Who’s performing half time — Bruno Mars. When: Sunday, February 2, 6:30 PM on FOX; Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey. This only happens when you’re the best — no mediocre.
If you spent MLK Day in Atlanta — then you probably had the best time commemorating the life and legacy of Dr. King. Any where else — probably mediocre. Hopefully, you followed the buzz all weekend — and you were able to do so via various live streams as we buzzed the city events hosted by the King Center and later Operation Hope’s Financial Dignity Center.
In the #top10weekend report we gave you 10 of the best events happening around town. We took you via live stream to the annual Salute to Greatness Awards dinner held by the King Center each year, hosted by Bernice A King, daughter of slain civil rights leader. Guests hosts were Malcolm Jamal Warner (Cosby Show, Malcolm & Eddie) and Dawn Lewis (A Different World, Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper). Saluted were the greatest of all time Muhammad Ali — accepting for Ali was his daughter Rasheda Ali; One Billion Rising and Eve Ensler, and Sughar Founder Khalida Brohi; along with Xerox Corporation. Amazing evening with leaders of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
From there, we buzzed comedy, 5k runs, film screenings, marches, speeches, panels and more all in the name continuing the dream of Dr King. Links to streamed events available at DryerBuzz.com. Thanks to all who participated by switching their avatars as part of #choosenonviolence. Keep a King heart everyday and we can change the world.
Now for the best and mediocre of this weekend’s box office. Ride Along with Kevin Hart and Ice Cube burst on the scene taking best with more than $40M; followed by second best Lone Survivor with $22M and The Nut Job with $19M. I guess we can say the Crabtree of weekend take was Jack Ryan at #4 or Devil’s Due at #7 — but if we’re talking about them — are they really mediocre.
Are you ready to become your best. Here’s an event that might take you from mediocre to best in one visit. Connect and learn from experts in the areas of Emotional, Physical, Spiritual, Professional Development, Personal & Business Branding, Love, Wealth Building and Financial Prosperity at one of Atlanta’s premiere Day Spa when you join host Tarra “MsMadamMoney” Jackson and her special wonder women Saturday, February 1, 2014.

Rewind… back to the Golden Globes … back to 12 Years a Slave… and yes we had to search for her almost like a runaway slave. We didn’t see her as the cast came out for the awards … yet Adepero Oduye made a lasting impression on me as one of the films stars. Her scene, the scene of “Let Me Weep Solomon” remains on my heart and i think was one of the most pivotal scenes in the movie – one somewhat overlooked if you ask me. It is the scene where the main character give his speech of waiting for freedom’s opportune — but where are we if no one weeps for women and children – you already know – we are here where we are today. We’ve got to stop missing the story of women and children. Our Wednesday Woman is Adepero Oduye from 12 Years a Slave. I want you to follow her buzz. Pick up her trail in social media. Amazing.

What is Sochi – Sochi is a couple of things, but as it relates to conversations you’re over hearing along with news items and trends, it refers to the winter olympics. If you hear people talking about going to Sochi – they are going to the Olympics. Winter Olympics gets a bit a shade. One, because its cold as … well let’s just say it’s a different season of sports. There’s ice skating, skiing, speed skating and more. The programming doesn’t inundate television like summer olympics. But it is still exciting. Many athletes are finding out right now if they made Olympic teams and have to prepare right away for the trip to the Black Sea Region. While some are highly endorsed, others are counting on you and you can help an athlete get there – many have launched crowdfunding and you’ll find their campaigns on popular crowdfunding sites.

Bishop W. Ron Sailor, Sr., Pastor of Christ the King Baptist Church and former journalist for CBS Radio – WAOK 1380 and V-103, passed away yesterday October 6, 2013. He was 63. Sailor, Sr., a native of Buford, Georgia is survived by his wife, the Rev. Dr. Marion Sailor, and their 4 sons and 2 daughters.
As a journalist and commentator for television, radio, and newspaper, Sailor has been awarded the highest accolades and awards of his profession. A seven-time EMMY award winner for his outstanding performance in television as well as being named Outstanding Commentator in the Southeastern United States three-times, Bishop Sailor was the first African-American to serve as commentator for the evening news for a major southern television station on WSB-TV and also the first African-American to host an afternoon television program in Atlanta, when he hosted the “Backtalk” program on WXIA-Television.
Buzz offices saddened to hear of this lost in media and radio. Who didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Ron Sailor, Sr? I personally had the pleasure of being in Sailor’s presence and learning from his media and radio wit. When owner of WIGO, Sailor took me under his wings giving me not only a show on his station, but a love for and understanding of the power of media. ~ Yalanda P Lattimore.
