Lowkey Happy – Insecure Season 4, Episode 8 Recap

This post on Insecure is in partnership with HBO. As always, thoughts and opinions are my own. Face Plant – Lawrence is at a bar waiting, when Issa walks in playing her part as the stunning Lady in Red. Sis got her shoulders out and is looking FAHN AF. She sees him and walks towards him but face plants right in the middle of the place! LMAO because she is always awkward. It’s the type of fall that hurts your dignity more than your knees. Changes – When she finally gets up, Lawrence has her fave...

AKA Jane Roe and the Human Cost of Homophobia

The recently released documentary, AKA Jane Roe, is generating keen interest for its (spoiler alert!)   “deathbed confession” by Norma McCorvey, a/k/a Jane Roe in Roe v. Wade(1973), that her apparent conversion in 1995 from supporting abortion rights to born-again Christianity and the pro-life/anti-abortion cause was not genuine, but “all an act.”   McCorvey reveals (in words that may bring the lyrics of Bob Seger’s “Night Moves” to mind) that she used them and they used her:   “I took their ...

Lowkey Trippin’ – Insecure Season 4, Episode 7 Recap

This post is in partnership with HBO. As always, thoughts and opinions are my own. The Run – Molly is at the Ethiopian restaurant being indecisive about her gluttony when she sees Issa come out the car. She hits that “look forward as if I see nothing” move we all know about but is then stunned when she sees her friend get back in the car and leave. Stunned! Andrew’s talking to his brother when Molly walks in, all puffed up and irritated. She tells him she saw Issa, who basically ran away from he...

‘The Wanting Mare’ Trailer: A Digital Dream Produced by Shane Carruth

Anytime Shane Carruth lends his name and talents to a project, it’s worth paying attention to. The Primer and Upstream Color director serves as executive producer on The Wanting Mare, a film written and directed by Nicholas Ashe Bateman. Shot almost entirely in a storage unit in New Jersey, the film employs digital backgrounds to create a fantasy world that looks completely real. The tantalizing The Wanting Mare trailer below forgoes a traditional plot-explanation set-up and instead draws you i...

New ‘Tiger King’ Episode in the Works at Netflix, Will Focus on Siegfried & Roy

Netflix is more than happy to turn Tiger King into a brand name. So much so that they’re already working on a new episode of the series that will focus on a completely different topic. Rather than touch on the strange story of Joe Exotic, this new Tiger King episode will focus on the 2003 tiger mauling attack during a Siegfried & Roy show. You want more Tiger King? You’ve got it. But it won’t be what you expect. THR says they received a call from someone who worked on the docuseries, and tha...

Lowkey Movin’ On – Insecure Season 4, Episode 5 Recap

This post is in partnership with HBO. As always, thoughts and opinions are my own. Not Cool – It’s 3:32 a.m. and Issa is wide awake at home, stressed, because she still needs a headliner for the Block Party. She gets on the ‘gram and sees that Nathan is active so she DMs him. He asks if she wants to talk and the answer is yes, because she dials his number. He big ups her for the upcoming event, but she laments that she’s still struggling to find a main act. He got the place to himself because A...

The NFL draft is barely a week in the rearview mirror and is about the furthest thing away on annual sports calendars from happening again, so naturally we're talking now about … the NFL draft?

Greenery - Journeys in Springtime ~ Tim Dee
