The Flavor of Love is 2006 Visual Coonery.

TwitThis


How you gone go from 911 is a joke to this intolerable Coonery? I am all for poetic liscense. I don't believe that all art should be postive. But this show crosses the line.

  • Flav's grills, clocks.
  • Women fighting each other on screen.
  • A woman pooped on her self on screen.
Three words. Coon-er-rey. ( God I sound like one of my aunties complaining about hip hop. If I do oh well. We all don't have to like everything).

His reality series, “Flavor of Love,” a ghetto-fabulous spoof of the dating series “The Bachelor,” has been a colossal hit for VH1. The show’s first-season finale in March drew nearly six million viewers, making it the highest-rated show in the cable channel’s history. More than three million people tuned in to watch the second-season premiere early August.
There is a fine line between acceptable self destructive humor AND pop culture coonery. This show falls squarly within shuckin' and jivin' for cream. Please belive we ALL suck and jive a lil bit in our lives. However, to get up and do it on screen for millions of people to watch has a huge impact on how brown people are seen around the world. VH1's highest rated show. Word?!!?!?!!?

I don't have cable so I watched 4 episodes of the wire, back to back last week. I turned around, and went to the Village to eat and I "thought" I saw a man from the Wire. I was like, oh laaaawd, I watched so many episodes I am hallucinating. I tapped him. Come to find out. He is on The Wire.

He plays our very own Al Davis. (peace to joey for the swipey).

I told him that this season is extra intense and that I enjoyed his work.
He was personable and responsive.

I like friendly well adjusted Actors!

Elephants now officially rank up there with Pandas. Who knew that there were so dope? They bury their dead and apparently humans that they kill too.
Okello said that after the man’s killing, the elephant herd buried him as it would one of its own, carefully covering the body with earth and brush and then standing vigil over it.
Their tribes have a "big momma" Aunties Uncles and god mommas.

Young elephants are raised within an extended, multitiered network of doting female caregivers that includes the birth mother, grandmothers, aunts and friends. These relations are maintained over a life span as long as 70 years. Studies of established herds have shown that young elephants stay within 15 feet of their mothers for nearly all of their first eight years of life, after which young females are socialized into the matriarchal network, while young males go off for a time into an all-male social group before coming back into the fold as mature adults.
And when the baby elephants watch they momma/daddy get killed, they grow up to be adult elephants full of rage and agression.
But in “Elephant Breakdown,” a 2005 essay in the journal Nature, Bradshaw and several colleagues argued that today’s elephant populations are suffering from a form of chronic stress, a kind of species-wide trauma. Decades of poaching and culling and habitat loss, they claim, have so disrupted the intricate web of familial and societal relations by which young elephants have traditionally been raised in the wild, and by which established elephant herds are governed, that what we are now witnessing is nothing less than a precipitous collapse of elephant culture.
And.
As a result of such social upheaval, calves are now being born to and raised by ever younger and inexperienced mothers. Young orphaned elephants, meanwhile, that have witnessed the death of a parent at the hands of poachers are coming of age in the absence of the support system that defines traditional elephant life. “The loss of elephants elders,” Bradshaw told me, “and the traumatic experience of witnessing the massacres of their family, impairs normal brain and behavior development in young elephants.
Sound familiar???!?!?!?!?!? Trust. It is a looooooong read. But I actually learned something about Animals, Agression and People for that matter.

I think it was an episode of the Boondocks where someone made mention about the NWA and the Amerikkka's Most Wanted Ice Cube (we grew up on) but then the person's response was something like "dat n... who makes kid movies"

neo said...

It's hard to look @ the same flav who was on PE's joints..I dunno man..it's weird the way this thing works..you're outspoken for the black community, then after a while no one cares about you, the system shows some interest, offers you boat load of dough, only jump like this and yee-haw all over the place..result: instant smash..

Interesting @ elephants..

Hummingbyrd said...

Neo.

Its real simple.

Represent ignorance or self hate or perpetuate cooning, and get rewarded.

Trust thats Why I love the ADL so much.

Because if Flav was Jewish, they would have deaded that shit, and I respect that.

Big Walt said...

Well, in lieu of last night's events.


Again.

DETROIT! WHAT!
