Charlamagne Tha God on Sapphyri (from Flava Of Love's Charm School with Monique) Rumor



Friday, February 29, 2008 -- by Wow Jones

Was listening to The Wendy Williams Experience radio show yesterday and heard a funny comment from radio personality/co-host Charlamagne Tha God regarding a rumor regarding Sapphyri -- a contestant on the Comedian Monique's TV show Charm School.

According to the rumor (from popular website MediaTakeOut.com, apparently she was impregnated by Death Row Records founder/Record Executive Shug Knight.

Charlamagne Tha God doesn't believe it. He found it hard to believe that Shug Knight would lay down with a woman like Sapphyri. Charlamagne Tha God said that her complexion, "Sapphyri's complexion reminds me of the color of my Schwinn bike chain after I left it uncovered in the rain after three days in 1987!"

"Sapphyri's complexion reminds me of the color of my Schwinn bike chain after I left it uncovered in the rain after three days in 1987!" -- Charlamagne Tha God

Vance Walberg's Dribble-Drive Motion Offense (re: John Calipari)


Thursday, February 28, 2008 -- by Wow Jones

Just came across a Sports Illustrated (Dated 2/18/08 The story is entitled, "Fast and Furious" by Grant Wahl. The issue has Dale Earnhardt Jr on the cover laying atop a lime-green car.) article on an offense that's purportedly changing the game of Basketball. Memphis Head Basketball Coach John Calipari currently uses it and it's the popular Vance Walberg Dribble-Drive Motion Offense.

Check out the way Coach Calipari explains how his players ball using popular offense. Calipari explains, "The players are unleashed when they play this way, because every player has the green light to take his man on every play".
"The players are unleashed when they play this way, because every player has the green light to take his man on every play". -- Memphis Head Basketball Coach John Calipari

Simple yet visual, kinetic description. Ya heard me?

The article mentions that Calipari is a born promoter. When explaining how he came to name Vance Walberg's offense, you see why.

Coach Vance Walberg initially called his offense the Attack-Attack-Skip-Attack-Attack (AASAA) Offense. Well, it understandably didn't come across very well. The story goes on to explain,

"A born promoter, Calipari also came up with the name Dribble-Drive Motion for the offense, 'It's just easier to understand,' he says. 'AASAA? Come on, what are you talking about?' Owing to the offense's continuous patterns, reads and backdoor cuts, he also branded it 'Princeton on steroids.' "

How To Become An Internet Sensation: Lollipop Lovin -- Why Give Head? (Alexyss K Tylor) TIME: 6:22

Wednesday, February 27, 2008 by Wow Jones

Sure, Alexyss K Tylor (The Black Dr. Ruth?) has her detractors, but love her or hate her, the woman knows how to communicate her ideas. In this clip, pay particular attention to HOW she gets her points across on sex and relations between the sexes. This clip focuses on oral sex.

For example, in this clip, she talks about women who "Don't want to do the Down and Dirty...". Hell, listen to how she introduces herself, "Welcome to the VaGIIIIINA Power Show."

Later in this clip, she describes the penis as "a beautiful piece of architecture...It was designed, to be loved, smelled, TASTEted, TOUCHed, just truly honored and admired."

Again, listen to how she talks. He emphaszing certain syllables and her intonations. I am capitalizing certain parts of her words to illustrate this.

Check out her use of dramatic pauses here,

"When you...touch a penus and when you...LICK a penus when you...STROKE a penus you DO it first with your mind." (I am intentionally mis-spelling penis to get a closer approximation as to how Miss Tylor pronounces the word--with her husky southern twang)

Here's some more of what Miss Tylor says...

"The very thought of...touchingandlickingandsuckingapenus should MOVE through every pore of your body. That energy should move through you to the point that your aura EXUDES it and everybody in the room can feel it. Every man can feel it."

"HELL, even sometimes when women are good at what they do in bed. We don't know all a y'all but we can FEEL you when you walk into a room around our man. Cause you can see women start clutching they man when certain women come in a room. The way they...(illustrates with mouth/lips) lick they lips and...(illustrates with mouth/lips) part their mouth and...(illustrates again) have they tongue go across their teeth." -- Alexyss K. Tylor



On lollipops, she says (while unwrapping the wrapper off the lollipop and beginning to lick it),"I like 'em cause they nice and juicy and red and they're soft and gooey in the center..."

Now that's how you use adjectives! I hope you can see how this woman is a fantastic communicator. I'll try and point out how Alexyss K Tylor pulls this off in her other clips.

How To Become An Internet Sensation: Alexyss K Tylor -- Halloween "Givin Dick Out Like Government Cheese..."

Wednesday, February 27, 2008 --by Wow Jones

I believe this is the first clip I came across featuring Alexyss K Tylor and her Vagina Power.

Sure, Alexyss K Tylor (The Black Dr. Ruth?) has her detractors, but love her or hate her, the woman knows how to communicate her ideas. In this clip, pay particular attention to HOW she gets her points across on sex and relations between the sexes.

Here are a few excerpts on this particular clip.

I’m PILOTing the pusssy
See Y’ALL got to be a PILOT over the pussy y’all.

Y’all got to be the Pussy PO-lice y’all.

…the men that we have designated to be our men to honor us, love us, respect us, and COMMIT to us, CANNOT be trusted

they done TOOK the wedding band off the finger

…a lot of men are scared to put the wedding band on the finger because they know in that woman’s mind the wedding band is also gonna be a NOOSE around the NUTS!

I mean a TRUE nut-bracket, to lock em in and keep them in check til they can’t give it to no one else!

We got to GUARD, HONOR and PROTECT the sanctity of the vagina.

…she does not have her policeman’s hat ON
She does not have her general’s hat ON
She does not have her sargeant hat ON
Because she done took it off and gave it to her MAN once she say I do or once she say she in a commitment.

Now while you at work or while y’all at the grocery store (points), or while y’all at CHURCH, you need to be in TUNE with your vagina AND the dick and the nuts that you done committed this right here too, because a lotta da men have THROWN away any type of verification.

Directing A Movie Out Of A Book (re: David E. Talbert)

David E. Talbert: Man On A Mission

Wednesday, February 27, 2008 -- by Wow Jones


David E. Talbert. Playwright, Director, Filmmaker, Producer, Businessman, Entrepeneur, Author. Man, it sure must be tough live in Tyler Perry's world. Especially when you were making successful urban "soul theater" plays when Tyler Perry was still living in his Geo Metro convertible.




David E. Talbert directing Ice Cube in FIRST SUNDAY.



Known for knumbskullish insinuation about fellow playwright August Wilson's significance to black audiences in The New York Times and his popular plays

Tellin It Like It 'Tiz!

What Goes Around Comes Around ("Love's Rollercoaster")

A Fool And His Money

Love Makes Things Happen

Talk Show Live

Lawd Ha' Mercy

Mr. Right Now

His Woman, His Wife

The Fabric Of A Man

He Say, She Say, But What Do God Say?

Love On Lay-A-Way

Love In The Nick Of Time



--David E. Talbert has been trying to make a transition to The Dream Factory--Hollywood. Well, he has...




After finally seeing his movie FIRST SUNDAY and liking it very much--despite its crappy look, I was curious as to his next move. Imagine my surprise when I read that Fox Searchlight had recently signed a deal that would enable Talbert to direct a movie based on his VERY OWN BOOK! Folks, this does NOT happen every day. The only author I can think of who's directed his own book is Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton; who directed the adaptation of his novel, The Great Train Robbery.




Baggage Claim follows the journey of thirty-something flight attendant Montana Moore, who when she learns of her younger sister's upcoming nupitals, embarks on a 30-day, cross-country search for a fiance.



Intrigued, I bought a copy of the book and was very surprised. It's a funny, warm, witty and entertaining look at life and love. While the ending is a bit too pat and predictable for my tastes, I look forward to seeing Talbert's adaptation of this material. In any event, this book is a classic example of the saying, "it ain't so much the destination, but the journey."

Remember, anything can happen in Hollywood, so I won't celebrate until I see it in movie theaters, but this bit of news sure is promising...

Why Audiences Are NOT Watching The Oscars

Why Audiences Are NOT Watching The Oscars

Monday, February 25, 2008. -- by Wow Jones

According to this Yahoo News Item, yesterday's 80th Annual Academy Award telecast was the lowest-rated ceremony ever.

I wasn't interested in seeing the show and only caught the tail end of the show where the Best Director and Best Picture Awards were announced. I also saw a bit where Jon Stewart joked (well, he TRIED to joke--I don't find him funny) that if the Writer's Strike were still on, the show would be relegated to showing montages of movie images. As an example he showed a montage of actors waking up from dreams (or nightmares). Another example of a montage was a series of images of people peering through binoculars, periscopes and what they saw.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

Maybe the Academy (or whoever decides what films are nominated) should go on to nominate movies that people CARE about. Movies that people actually SAW and RESPONDED to.

Why NOT nominate Peter Cullen for Best Actor as Optimus Prime





in Michael Bay's











Transformers?

Why NOT nominate Matt Damon as Jason Bourne in The Bourne Ultimatum?






Why NOT nominate Eddie Murphy for his fantastic acting in Norbit?





I know it sounds like the MTV Movie Awards will already have this covered, but if you nominate popular movies, chances are more people would watch since they'd have more of a vested interest in seeing who wins. I think.

Why NOT nominate singer Jill Scott or Tasha Smith for their performances in Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married?







Hell, why NOT nominate Tyler Perry as Best Director for Why Did I Get Married? or Daddy's Little Girls?







For that matter, what happened to nominations for Idris Elba and Gabrielle Union? What, Is Lions Gate (or Tyler Perry for that matter) NOT interested in starting a campaign for those movies?

Allegedly, The Weinstein's paid $15 million for their "No Country For Old Men" Oscar. The Coen Brothers are brilliant filmmakers, but their films often fail to capture the imagination of the public.

How to Become a Rock Star

Jonathan Coulton went from being just another "code monkey" to the Godfather of "Geek Rock." Here’s how he did it.

By KEVIN SITES, SUN FEB 17, 1:12 PM PST


If Jonathan Coulton were to write a song about his own success as a rock star, there would be little mention of the booze, drugs, one-night stands and lonely road laments that typically play out the power chord mix of mythic guitar heroes and music idols.


Instead, Coulton would refer to escaping a life awash in Fritos and Mountain Dew, stuck at his desk writing computer code — "The Office," set to music. It is, by his own admission, a fairly accurate description of his own former life as a software engineer.

"There's very little Elvis in me," -- Jonathan Coulton
"There's very little Elvis in me," Coulton says from his light-filled two-bedroom condo in Brooklyn. "Any rhythm that I have is here in my fingers. It's nowhere else in my body."
But those same rhythmic fingers, adept at multiple instruments — along with his gift for writing catchy, quirky songs anchored in sharp observation of the human condition — helped turn Coulton from just another "code monkey" to "The Godfather of Geek Rock." And he owes much of his success to the Web.

How he did itIn the fall of 2005, Coulton told his wife he was quitting his software job to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a rock star. He could have barely picked a more inauspicious moment. At 36, he was bearing down on middle age — and his wife had just given birth to their first child, a daughter.

"I have known some bitter people in my life who never did what they wanted to do, and I didn't wanna be that person," -- Jonathan Coulton
"I have known some bitter people in my life who never did what they wanted to do, and I didn't wanna be that person," says Coulton.

He also rationalized that letting go of something safe for something uncertain would be a more courageous example for his daughter of how to live.

When he was packing up his office cubicle to begin his new adventure, a colleague suggested that Coulton try to write one song every week for an entire year.

The idea both scared and intrigued him. Creativity on demand week after week was a daunting prospect, but it appealed to Coulton's desire for at least some kind of structure in his path to making a living through playing music.



From a tiny, converted closet studio in his home he began musing about the world around him — writing songs, recording them, then posting them to his web site. He called the project ambiguously, "Thing a Week." It was rarely an easy process.

"There were a lot of times when I would have an idea that I thought was really bad, or stupid, but sometimes that would be the only idea that I would have, and so I didn't have any choice but to do it," Coulton says. "That's definitely how a lot of those songs ended up being about such weird things, or news items."

He became a master of observation of the things that surrounded him. A Shopvac inspired a tune by the same name about a life of suburban angst and regret.

When he saw a photo online of a giant squid, he wrote a song called "I Crush Everything," in which a lonely giant squid wants to play with the ships he sees sailing above, but fears he'll destroy them with his innocent but deadly embrace.

Coulton also found a rich source of material from his former life. A song titled, "RE: Your Brains," tells the story of an office worker being besieged by a co-worker-turned-zombie, who of course wants to eat his brains.

But Coulton is perhaps best known for the tune "Code Monkey," about a software engineer who dreams of a better life. The song has become an anthem for downtrodden office workers and has helped propel his fame.

Coulton also broke through to fans on the Internet with a couple of unexpected cover songs. His rendition of Sir Mix-A-Lot's hip-hop ode to the bountiful behind, "Baby Got Back," was retooled as a softly crooned folk-love song. Listeners loved it.


But while Coulton's online audience was growing — his bank account was not, mainly because he was offering his songs for free under a creative commons license and asking for "tips."
When he gave his fans the options of buying the music outright for a set price, making a donation or downloading for free, so many began ponying up that he was soon making more money than he did as a software engineer.

It's not surprising his fans are intensely loyal. Seeing Coulton as a kindred spirit, they don't just buy his music, they build their lives around it, creating music videos, art books and even sending him stuffed animals based on characters in his songs.

"I like seeing somebody talented get out there and make the music that they want to create without really having to compromise at all," -- Jonathan Coulton fan Brian Richardson

"I like seeing somebody talented get out there and make the music that they want to create without really having to compromise at all," says Coulton fan Brian Richardson.

"As fans we try to reward Jonathan for that. There's a reason ... people go out and make music videos for his songs. It's because they understand what he's giving to them, and they really want to be able to return it in kind." Coulton nurtures this contact, now spending three or four hours a day interacting with his fans online, absolutely certain that this contact is critical to his success.
"My fans are geeks," Coulton asserts. "People who like science fiction, playing video games, who enjoy zombies and robots."

They also pay to see him in concert, which he organizes on the Web through a site called Eventful. When enough fans request he play a show in a certain city — Coulton says 100 is usually the tipping point — he will try to book a show there. It's a nearly foolproof way to play a packed house.

Coultan knows that when he is standing in front of these Internet-built crowds, guitar in hand, singing about zombies and giant squids and nearly everything in between, he's truly living the rock star dream — albeit without the sexy groupies and hangovers — but one which might inspire us all to live a little more fearlessly.

How To Intrigue Movie Audiences--Indiana Jones and The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull (1st Trailer)


How To Intrigue Movie Audiences--Indiana Jones and The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull (1st Trailer)

Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Harrison Ford, etc. A formula for success in Hollywood? Most likely. However, I saw the trailer this morning on Good Morning America and, other than the shot of Indiana Jones' forearm/hand coming in from offscreen, picking up his trademark fedora from the ground the camera tilting up and his 'shadow' putting the fedora atop his head...much of what I saw didn't do much for me. I'll give the filmmakers the benefit of the doubt though, their experience and track record deserves as such. The trailer begins with footage from prior Indiana Jones movies and then gets into footage from the new movie.
I also dug the funny shot of Indy swinging through the warehouse like Tarzan and missing his intended target. Trailers are amusing artifacts, anyway.

Indiana Jones 4 huh? Or is it Indy Jones 4?

How To Write A Letter To The Editor (re: Armond White)

I'm surprised more people don't take advantage of writing letters to the editor. Used correctly they are an ingenious way to help promote their name or at the least their company's name or website.

In any event, if you ARE going to write a letter to the editor (and hopefully get it published), you might want to take a look at the example provided below.

I just came across a letter to the editor in this week's (Feb 13-19) edition of the weekly newspaper The New York Press. Quite a read. It's by Benjamin Kessler and it defends the paper's lead film critic Armond White. All is explained in the letter that I will post below. Mr. Kessler breathlessly breaks down what makes Armond White special and worth reading. It's a short and intelligent note filled with facts to back up his assertions.

--The Wow Jones Report

http://www.nypress.com/21/7/news&columns/mailbox.cfm

MAILBOX: The New York Press

Defending Armond White

Armond White has always inspired a lotta hate mail, but never before have the anti-Armond crowd occupied as great a proportion of the Mailbox as they have in recent weeks. Every week, it seems, a brand-new uninformed Armond-basher (or two) steps into what has become a reserved swath of the letters page, with little or no room set aside for rebuttal. As a longtime White reader and admirer, I felt compelled not just to contribute some words in support of this great, embattled critic but also to attempt to clarify why the man matters urgently, not just to me but to what's left of our culture.

As a longtime White reader and admirer, I felt compelled not just to contribute some words in support of this great, embattled critic but also to attempt to clarify why the man matters urgently, not just to me but to what’s left of our culture. -- Benjamin Kessler
Fresh examples of White’s artistry appear every week, but I will quickly examine his review of Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show (“Antiques Roadshow,” Feb. 6-12).

The first thing that should strike the reader is its brevity. In fewer than 700 words, White does much more than a mere overview or concept description. With impressive precision, he isolates details that speak forcefully (meaningful punch lines and the audience reactions to those punch lines—signifying moments of performance and communication). With dazzling lucidity, he builds an argument based on these examples, finding a socially rooted theme beneath the movie’s overt theme. Along the way, he comes across prevailing perceptions about comedy, movie stars, “fratboys,” etc. but never simply accepts them; he always subjects them to rigorous, passionate scrutiny. Reading the film becomes a way to access deep truths about art, culture and society.

Unfortunately, it’s clear that the Armond-bashers don’t care about truth. Their letters about White’s review of There Will Be Blood aren’t intelligent, impassioned responses; they’re outraged attempts to bully White into the baa-ing herd of critics who make a living transmitting Hollywood’s callousness and complacency to their readers. The readers, in turn, bask in the buzz of feeling superior to both popular taste and cultural history. White won’t join in, so he’s called an elitist. That’s an irony worthy of Altman, but far beyond the ken of Paul Thomas Anderson.—

Benjamin Kessler, Manhattan

How To Give A Memorable Radio Interview: Radio Interview Tips and Techniques (re: Conrad Dobler)

How To Be a Memorable Radio Guest: Radio Interview Tips and Techniques - - (re: Conrad Dobler)

Wednesday, February 13, 2008 By Wow Jones

Whether you are selling a cause (hell, perhaps you are trying to convince people to vote for you), an idea, a new CD, a movie, a book, a play, or a TV show; you are gonna have to figure out a way to promote yourself and whatever it is you are selling. Whatever the medium, hopefully it reaches lots of people and affords you the opportunity to reach out to the public.

One of the advantages of radio is the fact that the medium is a theatre of the mind. People don’t SEE nor SMELL you, they HEAR you so if you have the gift of gab and have something that resembles a personality - - odds are you’ll connect with audiences.

One day I was skipping across some city concrete the other day while running errands. In the midst of doing that, I listened to this interview on NYC sports station WFAN-AM on January 29, 2008. In Arizona during the week leading up to the Super Bowl, hosts Joe Beningo, Evan Roberts (and special guest co-host, former NY Giant Carl Banks) announced that they were about to chat with ex-NFL player Conrad Dobler. I’d never heard of the guy, but upon hearing that he was a legendary player and a borderline Hall-Of-Famer, I was intrigued.

Once landing on the cover of Sports Illustrated in the 70’s for being “pro football's dirtiest player”,



Conrad Dobler was an offensive lineman for a number of NFL teams. For those who don’t know, offensive linemen are the men who stand in front of the quarterback and try to protect him from the opposing team's lineman and linebackers while the quarterback tries to throw the football on a passing play, or they try to push the opposing team's linemen aside or down and make holes for running backs to run through on running plays.

Conrad Dobler's played a game he loved before millions, written a book,



and even starred in a beer commercial,







- - in short, he’s lived quite a life. Now he’s an advocate for an organization called The Gridiron Greats, a group of ex-NFL players fighting for better health benefits.

When I heard Conrad Dobler say in his opening remarks that he went from being a Saint to a Cardinal (he played for both teams at some point in his football career) “…without ever going to church” I knew I was in for a one-of-kind-interview. In this interview Dobler talks about his life playing football, how he developed his nasty reputation and the plight facing ex-NFL players. This interview features memorable quotes and funny one-liners. Dobler knows how to make a point and does so in an engaging, entertaining manner. Listen and hear for yourself.

Take notes and peep game.

Rosie Perez: It's Been A Long Time...

Last seen headlining a Broadway revival of the comedy The Ritz, Actress/Dancer/Producer/Choreographer ROSIE PEREZ has always caught my eye.

The original boricua on the block, Rosie Perez just keeps going, and going, and going--like the Energizer bunny. Her nostrils may always prove to be an obstacle to mainstream success, but she still has a career and continues to stand out. The footage included in this post is of Rosie Perez dancing in the late 80s on television.
