Five things I would be willing to give black kids money for instead of
Girl Scout cookies.
A rousing performance of "Peaches and Cream" by 112.
T-shirts with my face on them.
I saw a commercial for the ABC Family original movie Romy and Michele: In The Beginning, a prequel to Romy and Michele's High School Reunion.
I could comment on how unnecessary a prequel to Romy and Michele's High School Reunion is, but let's watch footage of self-cloning robots instead.
In the advert for Romy and Michele: In The Beginning, Romy asks Michele, "Who would you rather have sex with: Cary Grant or Gary Cooper?" to which Michele replies, "Aren't they dead?"
Now I'm the last person who should be discussing values (see: ejaculating into someone's ice cream), but isn't dialogue like that a little inappropriate for a family network, particularly when the movie will be followed by The 700 Club?
Even if ABC Family's primetime schedule skews toward adult content, comedic banter about fucking corpses should not be included in a promo set to run repeatedly during a weekday afternoon block of TGIF sitcoms.
I saw the video for "Wait (The Whisper Song)" by the Ying Yang Twins. True to the song's title, D'Roc and Kaine whisper all the lyrics over a sparse beat reminiscent of "Drop It Like It's Hot." I'm not sure the song qualifies as music, or even Muzak. It's just…muted noise.
If minimalism in hip-hop continues unabated, a Cash Money cover of "4'33" by John Cage may very well top the 106 & Park countdown soon.
