Question of the Day (re: James Brown & Martin Luther King Jr) -- David Hinckley

Sat, April 5, 2008 -- by Wow Jones

In today's NY Daily News, David Hinckley offers a review of two documentaries airing this weekend. One being, "The Night James Brown Saved Boston" airing tonight on VH1 and the other documentary being, "King" airing Sunday night on The History channel.

The article points out something these two men--James Brown and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr had in common.

"If these documentaries did nothing else, they would confirm that both men, when they stepped to a microphone, got the attention of the room and knew what to do with it. " -- David Hinckley

For all those aspiring and reaching for the spotlight, I gotta ask, when that light shines on you, are you ready? Would you know what to do???

Rev Johnny Ray Youngblood
“A Dialogue With Death” --Sermon delivered on Easter SUN 3/23/08.

In a service where he declared that Preacher Jeremiah Wright “is my friend”, Rev Johnny Ray Youngblood of The St. Paul Community Baptist Church delivered a dramatic Easter Sunday sermon entitled, “A Dialogue with Death”

When talking about Jesus’ resurrection, he explains

“when the S - U – N rose that morning, the S – O – N had already risen."

“Now, my brothers and sisters, I Johnny Youngblood, I am a spiritual snoop, and whenever I read the scriptures, I’m always looking for a spiritual scoop.”

“the spirit is gonna let us for a little while, dialogue with him who is known as the landlord of the household of the lifeless.”

Now those are some zingers! For those interested in the manuscript of "A Dialogue with Death" contact the church.

Heard this in a new “Commentary” segment for the Kiss-FM “Open Line” Show on SUN 3/23/08 by James Mtume.

Mr. Mtume delivered this monologue on the media and he mentioned,

…the media’s madness,

N.E.W.S. used to mean North, East, West, South. It now means Not Even Worth Saying.

The media is now trivia instead of truth,
attitude over aptitude,

Walt Clyde Frazier = Deft Phrasing

Friday, April 4, 2008 -- by Wow Jones

Heard on the SUN 3/30/08 Knicks versus the Atlanta Hawks TV broadcast by

Color commentator Walt Clyde Frazier and Play-by-Play announcer Bob Wischusen (in for Mike Breen).

These are the phrases uttered by Clyde Frazier.

Coasting and toasting

Pizzazz, melancholy,

Propel him into stardom,

Matador D (defense) by David Lee

Swoop to the hoop,

rectify, thrive, pass was awry,

Jamal Crawford propelling the Knicks with his offensive prowess (3rd quarter),

A belated call,

Isiah always unflappable - - doesn’t raise an eyebrow (after a bad play or bad call)

Jamal and Lee becoming quite a tandem,

Knicks were a step short in coming back to Bibby, now the Hawks fans are becoming restless with their Hawks as the boos cascade down from the rafters.

Good aggression by Crawford. _______ is manhandling the Knicks now, seen some dubious calls, we’ve seen this from Crawford before--this type of offensive eruption,

Shakin and bakin,

Balkman with reckless abandon on offense or defense, splendid passes.

Picked apart, swarming about on defense without a purpose, uncanny ability to _______,

Resounding rebounding, the Hawks right there could not corral the ball,

you need an exquisite touch, you can’t unravel, too demonstrative,
one of Josh Smith’s forte’s – huffin and stuffin’,
you can see him exuding more and more confidence,

ball hangin and bangin in, they’re compelled to foul now.
