Nabisco has zero chill

I somewhat blame parenthood for my newfound fascination with all things Oreo. Pinterest is also to blame. Back in the 80s, we had the chocolate Oreo, the double stuffed Oreo, and the golden Oreo. That’s it. Jump ahead 30 years and Nabisco has now somehow managed to infuse the trendiest[…]

Cocaine 80s

Not just the name of one of my favorite band’s that is a band and sometimes a man, the 80s were a time of feast or famine. The decade birthed quite a few members of the hip-hop community. I decided to review MCs born and their contributions to the culture.[…]

In the Black

Is it me or has television gotten fairly Black? Now, I’m not saying there’s enough people of color on tv, what I am saying is, it’s browner than its been in awhile. Or at least my recent memory. This may be the second coming of the Martin, Living Single, New[…]
