USA Today Called “The Best Man Holiday” a “Race-Themed” Film

The Best Man Holiday was released in theaters this Friday and it beat Thor in ticket sales that day. But Thor came from behind and earned $38 million for the weekend, edging out BHM’s $31 million. I (and people who use logic) expected the film to perform well because there’s been a lot of buzz […]

I Saw The Best Man Holiday and Here’s My Review (NO SPOILERS)

When I think of The Best Man, I remember the golden age of Black Hollywood. The 90s were awesome for diversity in entertainment (music, TV and movies). The film was part of a decade-long cluster of great coming-of-age stories that was BY US, FOR US but still relatable to everyone. So when I heard that […]

My Hunt for Swiss Miss French Vanilla Hot Chocolate

When it comes to edible stuff, I have an obsessive thing where I love something a lot for a while and indulge in it ALL THE TIME. There was the time I ate Corn Pops every night before bed for a month. And then I’d wake up and eat a bagel with strawberry cream cheese. […]
