I'ma Let You Finish But...

Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of the greatest shows of all time:

M. Knight Shyamalan usually makes work that is artistic, but makes no sense. However, this show not only makes sense, it was great to watch. And, unlike most tv shows, it actually had an ending; a pretty good one at that. I really hope the movie doesn't ruin it. Speaking of that, who would make a movie about a series that had a definite beginning and end. That is exceptionally stupid. Oh well.

Can't Stop, Won't Stop

Somebody is going to punch me for this, but I believe R. Kelly is a genius. First of all, as a lyricist, he is in the upper echelon of musical writers. His singing is impeccable. He is an all-around musical genius. However, what made him a genius in my mind was his Trapped in the Closet series:

He managed to produce and direct his own modern opera that had its own twists and turns. It was very well written. I was surprised. I think someone should nominate that for an Academy Award.

Last Dance, Last Chance

World, if you haven't played this game franchise, you need to get with the program:

This game is visually stunning as you can see. That's an actual screenshot of the game by the way. Anyways, the music is amazing. The story is epic. The characters are lovable. Not to mention, it's an all-around good time. It's my favorite game. I'm sorry, I just had to let everyone know. Over and out.

Teach Me

It is Thanksgiving Eve. For the first time in my life, I will not be home to partake in it. It has its pluses. I don't have to clean anything, However, I can't see my immediate family. Oh well. Anyways, I have to take my hat off to Spike Lee:

This man has made so many groundbreaking movies, such as Crooklyn, Do the Right Thing, Inside Man, and Miracle at St. Anna, among many others. His movies always dealt with race relations, particularly with the black diaspora. He also transcends movie making into the social and fashion realm. In Do the Right Thing, he quite possibly made Air Jordan's popular with people outside of the African American race. In other words, I believe he made them mainstream. He was as much of a social and style icon as he was a movie icon. Ok, I need to stop riding him so hard. I'm gone.
