“The Purge-Anarchy” is one movie that I can wait to see.  I am already scared from watching the trailer.(above).  I remember that the original, “The Purge” had me shaking in my chair as I watched.

Synopsis:

Well, I couldn’t find an official synopsis that I liked so here’s mine:

A couple gets stranded as the Purge, one night a year when all crime is legal, begins.  The couple becomes trapped as chaos ensues.   Will they find a safe place to hide?  <– That’s not all but you probably can remember the plot from the 2013 1st movie.  All I know is that I am going to see it when it opens  July 18th.  And if you need better explanation, click play above. Ha.

 

This is a must see.

I absolutely love this video.  I am not sure of this fellow’s name but he owned this cover of R&B artist Joe’s All the Thing (Your Man Won’t Do).  Watch it and check out the original below and tell me what you think.

Maleficent crushed the box office this past weekend.  Take a look at the trailer to see if you want to contribute to it’s success.

Synopsis

A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal-an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom-and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well. Yahoo

News over the weekend that I am sure Arsenio Hall didn’t want to hear–his late night comeback show, The Arsenio Hall Show was canceled by CBS.  Boo.  I was rooting for Hall as I was a fan of his show in the 90s.

“Unfortunately, The Arsenio Hall Show will not return for a second season; while there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue,” CBSTVD said in a statement Friday. “Arsenio is a tremendous talent and we’d like to thank him for all the hard work and energy he put into the show. We’d also like to thank Tribune and all our station group partners for their support of the show.”

I am sure this comes as a surprise to Hall considering it was announced it February that the show had been renewed for a 2nd season.  Although, I haven’t watched as much as I used to I know that I am surprised.  However, Arsenio Hall is super talented and will land another gig I am sure.

Meanwhile, supermodel Tyra Banks has picked up another daytime talk show.  Banks will executive produce and host a lifestyle show launching next year.  This is Banks 2nd go at a daytime show.  The Tyra Banks Show ran from 2005-2010.

Dr Maya Angelou

Award winning author, poet and civil rights activist Dr. Maya Angelou passed away today.  Who she was is best explained in her own words:

“Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.

I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size

But when I start to tell them,

They think I’m telling lies.

I say,

It’s in the reach of my arms

The span of my hips,

The stride of my step,

The curl of my lips.

I’m a woman

Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,

That’s me.” — from “Phenomenal Woman,” first published in 1978

May her sweet soul rest in peace knowing the impact she has had on the world.  Read more about the life and times of Dr Angelou here.

mother on PCP

Drugs are bad m’kay!

A 36 year old Dallas mother, Sonja Gardner high on PCP allegedly tried to drown her two young daughters, ages 4 and 6 last Thursday.  The gotcha is not that she was on PCP.  Gardner admitted that they wouldn’t stop asking for snacks.  Isn’t this what 4 and 6 year olds do?

According to cbsnews, Gardner’s 18 year old son managed to rescue the girls.

Gardner’s 18-year-old son managed to rescue his siblings, CBS DFW reports. Neighbors said they heard the girls screaming inside the Dallas home before seeing the 18-year-old run out of the residence with a soaking wet 4-year-old. He then reportedly ran back into the house to get his 6-year-old sister.

The station reports the son kicked down the locked bathroom door and yelled at his mother to release the girl. When she refused, he allegedly fired a gun into the ceiling. The son – who has a probation violation – then reportedly fled the scene after giving custody of the children to an aunt.

The girls are safely tucked at a foster home and are ok.

In order to get President Obama’s full attention at a White House Talent event,  a little boy grabbed the President’s ear as he leaned down to tell him something.   Children surrounded Obama, obviously excited to meet the President  as FLOTUS spoke to the crowd.  Watch to video to see the cuteness plus what First Lady Obama had to say.

Michael-Jackson-hologram-at-Billboard-Music-Awards-2014

Last night, the King of Pop Michael Jackson made an appearance at the Billboard Awards 2014 in the form of a hologram.  I didn’t know how I felt about it until I watched it.  It was very creepy.  It did seem like it was him performing his new song, Slave to the Rhythm, off his posthumous album Xscape.  Apparently his head was superimposed on an imposters body to make the illusion.  Jackson has been dead for 5 years.   Making money off of him this way is morbid.

I love MJ and wish his family or whomever is responsible will let him rest in peace.

Watch below.
