    Never been a much of a pop/r&b fan but the Robin Thicke is bit better, though in all honesty i listen to even less male r&b.

    This is completely unrelated but some of you indie rock fans might want to check this group out. http://www.myspace.com/thecarps

    Its hard to categorize their sound but I go crazy everytime I listen, its a two person band Jahmal Tonge on the drums/vocals and Neil White on bass.

    This is a hard one. The Cosby was a great example of black people in society and how the model black family should be but Fresh Prince was more of the show for me. Fresh Prince had great messages within its comic flavor like when Carlton and Will had a bet that Carlton could survive in the hood.

    FRESH PRINCE FOR ME!

    Fresh Prince is superior to the cosbys on every level....has better replay value and for some reason never gets old. The acting, the jokes and the underlying moral messages are spot on.

    That episode where Carlton and Will trick Jeffery into thinking he's won the lottery is an all time classic...lol.

    nah I know they're black but the tv producers have this stupid trend of making the lighting so they look white.. guess they don't think america handle families that are "too black" :rolleyes:

    Well, I actually think the cosby shows moral lessons are better, but fresh prince is funnier which makes it superior in my head. Sorry Mr.Cosby.

    I've seen so much Fresh Prince as young'n I cant stand to watch that show anymore. Still catch Cosby occasionally on Nick @ Nite though.

    The Cosby show was too clean-cut, instead of focusing on how black families realy are, they opted to "sort out" blaxploitation by showing the world how they thought black families should be percieved....FP handled this very well i the sense that they were more real, identifiable and told it how it was. Don't get me wrong, the cosbys was a great show and did a lot to fend off negative perception of black people but....there was so mch more missing.

    Y'know there are a good amount of black families like the cosbys, even though the majority aren't.

    I thought it has some decent tracks on it,not at the level of the Black album or The Blueprint but better than a lot of stuff ive heard lately in the genre[/quote]


    I know it's all opinion but for me JT's album was full of great instant tracks with catchy melodies and good stories,his song "losing my way" is amazing
    Thickie on the other hand was full of slow sex songs that all felt like they were gonna send me to sleep

    Some Hip Hop I am Loving lately is Plastic Little
    www.myspace.com/plasticlittlerap


    These guys are what I like about Rap music. They are funny and don't take themselves seriously and Rap over stuff like The Cure and The Smiths While Rapping about Harry Potter. Their Album also has some otther rappers I like on there such as MF Doom, Ghostface Killah and Spank Rock.

    I'm liking Lupe Fiasco's style, these days. He won me over when the first verse to one of his songs was about piloting a giant robot.

    Quick google search

    For most Oscar-winning actors, their night of glory is a complete blur. Not so for Denzel Washington, who picked up a gold statue in 1990 for his role as a runaway slave-turned-soldier in Glory. "I just remember the look on my mother's face," recalls the 47-year-old, whose mom, Lynne Washington, was seated in the audience. "She couldn't believe it."

    Here's the link http://www.tvguide.com/News-Views/I...posting={B448DC16-7343-4814-941A-E66A2E5CB266}

    Glory was the first movie I ever saw w/ Denzel in, I always thought it was strange how people complained about him not winning an Oscar. I'd be like he already has one, and people would just look at me like I was stupid.:o

    Kenan and Kel owned!!! I don't know you anymore Lightning Strykes. And considering that I never knew you in the first place that puts my brain in some conundrum that I can't begin to comprehend.
