Oulton Time Again

Well this weekend see my 2017 kick off meeting at Oulton Park. The end of what has been a odd off season. Work commitments have seen me travelling around a bit and until recently I faced the very real possibility of not being able to race at all this year. However a fortunate visit to Florida for work (oh the hardship I hear you cry) meant that I had the chance to go to the Daytona 200 and get totally sunburned, while the rest of the NGRRC where at Brands Hatch. Not only did this steel me to find a way t... read more »

Everybody Wants Some!!

Everybody Wants Some!!seen @ Kew Gardens Cinemas, Kew Gardens, Queens NYIt just so happens that the main character in my novel is a former baseball player from Texas. I didn't really go into Everybody Wants Some!! expecting to get any further insight into what the life of a Southern college-age jock was like. The machismo, the competitiveness the party lifestyle, and yes, even the subtle homo-eroticism in places, none of it came as much of a surprise, and anyway, we never see my character during his coll... read more »

Footlight Parade

Are Ruby and Joanie supposed to be nudein this poster? Sure looks like it!Footlight Paradeseen @ Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre, Jersey City, NJA long time ago, when they used to be shown in venues opulent and lavish enough to be worthy of the name "palaces," movies used to be preceded by live stage shows called "prologues." As I understand it, they were the brainchildren of exhibitors, who put them on as a supplement to the movie, a kind of stage-setter, as it were. Imagine seeingBatman v. Supermanat Ra... read more »

Creed

Creedseen @ Cinemart Fiveplex, Forest Hills, QueensWhen Creed first began doing gigs around their hometown of Tallahassee, Florida, grunge rock had started to become played out. They had to settle for playing in family restaurants. They played mostly cover songs, but all the while they were writing original material for what would eventually become their 1997 debut record My Own Prison, which they initially released on their own Blue Collar Records label. According to manager Jeff Hanson, fourteen labels... read more »

The link who fell to Earth

Unfortunately, I don't have any interesting stories related to the music of David Bowie. I never saw him in concert, nor did he inspire me to explore my sexuality or anything along those lines. Like many people, I simply dug his music, and I'm really sad to see him departed from this life. As an actor - and he had been one almost as long as he had been a singer - he had an eclectic range of roles, as you would expect from one who took on roles in his musical performances: Pontius Pilate in The Last Tempt... read more »

Stubbington 10k race recap

I ran my first race of the year today: Stubbington 10k. Ive run it four times previously, so I knew what to expect. I got up early and went co collect some friends: Rodolfo, Khalid and Khalids wife and son. I had been worried about the drop in temperature and thought I might have to [] read more »

No Way Out

No Way OutYouTube viewingJoseph L. Mankiewicz is one of the most successful triple-threats - producing, writing and directing - in Hollywood history. Chances are you've seen his two biggest hits as a writer-director, A Letter to Three Wives and Best Picture winner All About Eve. As a producer, he was behind such big hits from the 30s and 40s as The Philadelphia Story and Woman of the Year, among others. In addition, his brother Herman co-wrote Citizen Kane with Orson Welles, the highlight of a long caree... read more »

Broken Blossoms

Broken Blossoms, or The Yellow Man and the GirlYouTube viewingHow do I talk about D.W. Griffith? How do I talk about the guy whose innovative directorial techniques revolutionized film, yet left an indelible stain on that medium with a movie so toxic in its racism? (I don't need to invoke its name, do I? We know which film I'm talking about.) It so happens that 2015 marks the centennial of That Movie, and Time wrote a piece earlier this year to commemorate the occasion.I have written here before, when ta... read more »

It's Easy To Just Pray

Oh America, you’ve provided the world with yet another reminder of your sordid history with terrorism against black people. I’ve explained to a few people over the last six months that while social media has brought to light the brutality faced by people of color, these things aren’t new. No, they are in fact very, very old. My brother and I, as well as everyone of color we knew, grew up being taught how to act just to appease white people. “Don’t say anything too controversial or they may get offended”,... read more »

Ethel Waters

I wonder how well Ethel Waters is remembered today by most people. As a Hollywood actress, I'm guessing she's probably not as well known as, say, Hattie McDaniel or Lena Horne or Dorothy Dandridge, and as a blues/jazz singer, she may not be as well-remembered as Etta James or Billie Holiday or Ella Fitzgerald.Hers was certainly not a name I remember from my early childhood, which was steeped in soul, country and disco from the 50s, 60s and 70s. She wasn't someone I learned about during Black History Mont... read more »

To Kill a Mockingbird

To Kill a Mockingbirdseen on TV @ TCM2.18.15My copy of To Kill a Mockingbird looks like the kind you'd get in school. For one thing, it's got "Property of the Board of Education of the City of New York" stamped on the first page. I don't remember what grade I read the book in, but I imagine it must have made an impression on me if I kept it. Also, it's got a hardcover that binds the pages so tight, the gutter comes very close to swallowing the text, so I have to turn the book around a little in order to ... read more »

Gentrification Never Existed

It’s big undefined blob of a word that obscures rather than illuminates.  Gentrification is a metaphor and a poorly applied one.  Plenty of studiers show it does not exist as people use the term, according to author John Buntin.             “As for displacement—the most objectionable feature of gentrification—there’s actually very little evidence it [] Tags:Gentrification, race, urban Del.icio.us Facebook TweetThis Digg StumbleUpon Comments:0 (Zero), Be the first to leave a reply!

A Raisin in the Sun

A Raisin in the Sunseen on TV @ TCM1.14.15SoA Raisin in the Sun was revived on Broadway last year, and after seeing the film version again, I kinda wish I had seen it live as well. Denzel Washington might be too old for the part, but I have absolutely no problem imagining him stepping into Sidney Poitier's shoes. The revival did very well: it won three Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Play, and even the President and First Lady went to see it.Raisin is a play that has enjoyed a long shelf life, b... read more »

Selma

Selmaseen @ AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13, New York, NY12.26.14Love and hate. You can't have one without the other, and ever since the dawn of time, it seems like they've gone at each other like battering rams. We try to use love to rise above our baser instincts, but hate inevitably does its best to drag us down.Are we forever doomed to be locked in this cycle? I certainly hope not, but for every step forward we seem to make in the struggle to transcend ignorance, intolerance and bigotry, we end up taking... read more »

Dear White People

Dear White Peopleseen @ Kew Gardens Cinemas, Kew Gardens, Queens, NY10.28.14First of all, I wanna say upfront how grateful I am that the Kew Gardens is showing Dear White People. I was prepared to see this in the city if I had to - the Kew gets a lot of indie films, but they don't get everything - but seeing it in Queens, at a reasonable price (read: single digits) means a lot to me. They even put it in Theater 3, the main auditorium, which is the biggest one they have.Now, when the movie started, I was ... read more »

The Learning Tree

The Learning Treeseen on TV @ TCM9.18.14The Learning Tree was the first studio movie from a black director, Gordon Parks Sr., and it's not bad. It's kinda treacly in places, and the acting is what I would call earnest - meaning it feels like the actors, especially the two young male leads, are trying very hard to act instead of just be - but at the same time the film comes across as quite sincere and authentic as well.What I wanna talk about is the climax, which presented a fascinating moral dilemma, so,... read more »

Belle

Belleseen @ Kew Gardens Cinemas, Kew Gardens, Queens NY5.13.14It's those dresses. They're... distracting. Whenever I watch a period piece set in the 19th century or earlier, I just can't help but be distracted by them. Yes, I realize that it's the corsets underneath them that create all that generous cleavage, and yes, they're probably uncomfortable as hell, but... usually, they're the only thing that keeps me awake whenever I watch a period piece. Most of the time, all those movies about Lady Such-and-S... read more »

Motorsports: the solution to everything!

All-american links

Last month, I was quite saddened to see that one of the last neighborhood movie theaters from my youth, the Jackson Cinemas in Jackson Heights, was closed for business. The movies on the marquee were Thor: The Dark World, Catching Fire and Frozen, so based on that, I'd say it's probably been at least three months since they closed their doors.I've written about this place many times in this blog,mostly positive but sometimes negative. As much of a beloved hot spot as it was for me growing up, those days ... read more »

QWFF Day 3: Hands across the water

Iconoclastic director Spike Lee recently made some statements about the changing, gentrifying face of New York in general and Brooklyn in particular. Whether or not you think gentrification is a good thing is a separate issue. What had me thinking, especially after writing about the changes to Long Island City and Astoria yesterday, was how this issue relates to Queens. I've lived in both East Elmhurst and now Jamaica; I remember how Queens used to look and I'm familiar with how it looks now, and while I... read more »

Dear Hollywood,Wussup, bro? Been awhile since we talked. How ya been? You had a pretty good night last night at the Oscars, huh? I'm sorry, but I'm afraid I couldn't be bothered to watch. I had a pretty good feeling who was gonna win what, andI know you can't get enough of that stuff, but I really didn't need to sit through yet another themed montage or one more superfluous musical number.

Jailhouse Rock

Jailhouse Rockseen on TV @ TCM10.20.13First of all, let it be known that I do respect Elvis Presley as a musician. He made some awesome records that genuinely rock, and that still hold up today. He was a bit of an iconoclast, he certainly embodied the spirit of what we now call rock music as something dangerous and sexy (though I don't think he was that great looking), and yes, I'll even go so far as to say that he does deserve a place in rock history as one of the earliest, if not the first, superstars.... read more »

I've never been the type to follow the Oscar race year-round - they don't mean that much to me - but for those of us who can't be at Toronto, or Telluride, or Venice, they let us know which movies to keep an eye on, whether Oscar-worthy or not, and t... read more »

Fruitvale Station

Fruitvale Stationseen @ Kew Gardens Cinemas, Kew Gardens, Queens, NY8.8.13In my life, I've had encounters with police twice - however, they turned out to be misunderstandings both times. The first time was here in New York, in my Queens neighborhood. I was walking down a street; I forget where I was headed, but it doesn't matter. A cop car from the opposite side of the street turned around to my side, and one of the cops asked me to approach. Hesitantly, I did so, heart pounding in my chest as I prepared... read more »

Across 110th Street

Across 110th Streetseen @ Mid-Manhattan Library, New York, NY7.3.13I don't get up to Harlem much. Manhattan is a huge island, with much to see, but eight years of high school and college in or near the midtown area kind of conditioned me to favor the lower half of Manhattan. So it's not just Harlem I don't visit much; I don't see Washington Heights or Inwood a whole lot either. (For those of you who've never been to NYC, these are neighborhoods at the far northern end of Manhattan.)I've certainly spent t... read more »

What a time for black filmmakers!

'Fruitvale Station'It doesn't matter if Hollywood doesn't notice. It doesn't matter if the critics don't notice (though I believe they do). It doesn't matter if general audiences don't notice. The fact is that it's happening... and because it's happening one can't help but feel hopeful for the future, in spite of everything. Quality black directors are on the rise, and have been for the past several years (at least). I feel fortunate to have started this blog when I did so that I could help chart the r... read more »

Fun Tuesday!

Yesterday I took the kids to McWane Center for a few hours. It's a fun museum to visit anyway, but we wanted to be sure to go during a special exhibit event. A very thought provoking exhibit, on the topic of race. The exhibit included several anti-racism videos, photos and computer simulations. It helped generate an interesting discussion with the kids, even the six year old.After the special exhibit we wandered into the adventure halls. The kids raced against dinosaurs, dug for dinosaur fossils, hoi... read more »
