NYPD’s #myNYPD Twitter campaign backfires spectacularly

Well, that escalated quickly.

What was intended as a feel-good PR campaign morphed into something else entirely when the NYPD called on Twitter users to post photos of themselves posing with their friendly local police officers.

What a ‘success’ this was. LAPD por favor.

…Time to build that man cave. Had no idea JL(U) was on Netflix in addition to the Lilo & Stitch movie and Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

It’s only the first episode and it was alright taking into account McGruder parted ways with it. Looking forward to future eps.

The words “it’s only the first episode” should only be used when a new show being talked about. Ain’t no warm up time lol. It’s missing the funny. Aaron McGruder had that Midas touch. 

I thought it was okay to use “it’s only the first episode” since it is the first episode of the fourth season—the season in which McGruder decided to part ways with the series and for the first time ever will not have a (direct) hand in the creation of the episodes. The humour is still there (although it’s a bit late on the CB jokes and some made me raise an eyebrow). Gotta give props to the writers for picking up something they had no hand in creating and continuing where McGruder left off.

You have future episodes to look forward to and next week’s looks like a treat (paraody of Breaking Bad but instead of meth Grandad invents a hair product, Nap-B-Gone, to straighten black women’s hair). But hey if it the episodes do not improve, this season could always receive the fifth season of Martin treatment and pretend like it never existed (save for a couple of episodes).

FYI: Writing a hit play and directing it is equivalent to going to Harvard (and possibly graduating from the school).

Have yet to listen/read the entire interview but an interview on Microphone Check (NPR) starring my favourite emcee looks is an automatic must listen.

Pete Rock (T.R.O.Y., ’nuff said), Mike Bivins (you know from Bell Biv DeVoe…that girl is poisonnnnn), Ebro (of Hot 97), Bobbito (you have to remember him from the The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show  if not, you gotta remember him for being the announcer for NBA Street vol 2 and 3), and Extra P!

Time Is Illmatic left more to be desired. It was still a good documentary but there was definitely more they could have done with the film such as, building off of scenes where Nas talks about the first time he met (insert producer’s name here) and how track (insert tack name here) came to be and just going off of that. Nevertheless, it’s still a must watch for Hip Hop heads and stans fans of Nas. Big ups to Sony for hooking a brother up with tickets.
