As Viewers Flock To Streaming Video, One Cable Channel Keeps A Devoted Audience: Turner Classic Movies

“The Atlanta-based TCM has long been the sanctuary of classic film on TV, presenting mostly pre-1980 movies commercial-free with a deep respect for moviemaking history going back to the silent film era. … TCM also appeals to an older audience that is more likely to hold onto its cable subscription than younger viewers who quickly adapted to streaming platforms. The channel also connects with fans through live events, cruises, books, an annual film festival and even a wine club.” – Yahoo! (Los A...

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Eastern Conference Finals

The Western Conference Finals have begun already, so now it’s time to shift the focus to the East. The Milwaukee Bucks will host the Atlanta Hawks for the right to go to the NBA Finals. Milwaukee hasn’t won an NBA championship since 1971 when Lew Alcindor was their top player. For the Hawks, you would have to go all the way back to 1958 when they were in St. Louis. Milwaukee and Atlanta were two of my top-5 favorites in the East after the trade deadline. Giannis have been amazing in this posts...

GOP filibuster blocks Democrats’ big voting rights bill

By BRIAN SLODYSKO, CHRISTINA A. CASSIDY and LISA MASCARO WASHINGTON (AP) — The Democrats’ sweeping attempt to rewrite U.S. election and voting law suffered a major setback in the Senate Tuesday, blocked by a filibuster wall of Republican opposition to what would be the largest overhaul of the electoral system in a generation. The vote leaves the Democrats with no clear path forward, though President Joe Biden declared, “This fight is far from over.” The bill, known as the For the People Act, wou...

‘Karen’ Trailer: Here’s a Jordan Peele Rip-Off That No One Asked For

Jordan Peele made quite an impression on audiences with his directorial debut Get Out. The thriller used racism as the crux of the terror, offering plenty of sharp social commentary along with more genre-driven chills. Even though it took a little while, another filmmaker is trying the same thing, but with seemingly far worse results. Karen is a new thriller focusing on a racist white woman who is hellbent on terrorizing a new Black family that just moved in next door. It has all the beats of a...

Covid-Tested Flights

Suns’ Deandre Ayton welcomes Clippers’ small-ball challenge

PHOENIX — To its credit, Phoenix didn’t spend its week between games frittering away its advantage. While the Clippers labored against top-seeded Utah Jazz for six second-round games, the Suns spent their six days of downtime after sweeping Denver doing homework. So when the Clippers rolled out the small lineup Sunday that’s served them well so far this postseason, Phoenix were prepared. “I mean, that’s what we expected,” Suns star Devin Booker said after their 120-114 victory in Game 1 of the W...

The fast food chicken sandwich wars will never end and here’s why

Nearly two years after it began, the battle over what fast food chain has the best chicken sandwich rages on. Carl’s Jr., Burger King and McDonald’s recently entered the fray in the so-called chicken sandwich wars, and they’re not alone. Kentucky Fried Chicken and Wendy’s have added new chicken sandwiches to their menu, and even Taco Bell has revived its Naked Chicken Chalupa, which has a shell made with chicken meat, as a contender in combat. “Now it’s just required that everyone have a chicken...

Clippers’ Tyronn Lue reflects on Black coaches’ success this season

PHOENIX — Clippers coach Tyronn Lue surveyed the NBA landscape late this season and shared a notable observation: Three of the final four coaches leading teams in the respective conference finals will be Black. It’s Lue and Phoenix’s Monty Williams in the Western Conference finals. And in the Eastern Conference, either Philadelphia’s Doc Rivers or Atlanta’s Nate McMillan was bound for the conference finals when Lue spoke before Game 1 in Phoenix on Sunday. “Three of the four coaches left standin...

12 dead in Alabama due to Claudette storm, including 10 children

ATLANTA — Tropical Depression Claudette claimed 12 lives in Alabama as the storm swept across the southeastern U.S., causing flash flooding and spurring tornadoes that destroyed dozens of homes.

Bucks edge Nets in OT in Game 7, withstand Kevin Durant’s 48

NEW YORK (AP) — A Game 7 thriller, the NBA’s first do-or-die game to go to overtime in 15 years, came down to a matter of inches. If Brooklyn star Kevin Durant was just slightly farther away — or if his foot was slightly smaller — he ends the highest-scoring Game 7 ever by an NBA player with a 3-pointer to win the series. “We got lucky his toe was on the line and they called it a 2,” Milwaukee’s Khris Middleton said. “But once he hits that shot, we’ve got to forget about it. There’s still ballga...

Remember when making Juneteenth a national holiday was a Donald Trump campaign promise?

From September 25, 2020: "President Donald Trump made a series of promises at a campaign event in Atlanta on Friday in a bid to woo Black voters, including establishing Juneteenth, which commemorates the end of U.S. slavery, as a federal holiday" (Reuters).Of course, it was just "a bid to woo Black voters" when Trump promised to do it, but now that the members of Congress and the new President have actually made Juneteenth a national holiday, is anyone minimizing the achievement as pandering to ...
