TBS Is Developing a Notorious B.I.G.-Inspired Comedy Series — TIME


The late, great New York hip-hop icon Notorious B.I.G. is the inspiration behind a new comedy series coming to TBS. The series, called Think B.I.G. is currently under development at TBS and will chronicle the misadventures of an inner-city teenager trying to create a better future for his daughter and infant son, according to a…

Will they include his drug-dealing ways?

8th floor R&B


Some gratitude/observations throughout my day, so far.

  • Sitting on an 8th floor office, sipping a cup of coffee. I’m not a coffee snob, so… yes, I have no idea how they made it, but it’s pretty damn good.
  • The amount of traveling vendors on the bus I rode was minimal. Always a plus.
  • Although getting up today was no small feat, I felt like last night provided three simple pleasures: part of an old Sex and The City rerun I hadn’t seen, reading a few intense poems by Eduardo Villalobos, and falling asleep to a live album by Benny Ibarra (I hadn’t played his music in a long while).
  • Quality time with Peanut before heading out. Gave him a treat, fed him, changed his bowl of water and provided much needed kisses.
  • An ATM in the building’s lobby: sweet!
  • Remembering past great American Dad moments, most of them not rape-related (seriously, what’s with American Dad and Family Guy’s morbid fascination with child molestation and rape?)

I can’t think of SNL in the same way now


The mythology of Saturday Night Live is undeniable. I haven’t watched a complete episode in the years (due to lack of cable), but I recognize the memorable performances and sketches throughtout the years (I haven’t ruled out getting a More Cowbell tattoo someday). However, after listening to Harry Shearer’s episode on WTF, I now realize that Lorne Michaels is a darker character than we’ve been led to believe.

Power moves, mind games, racism… not funny stuff. Unlike this sketch featuring Shearer and Martin Short!

 

What inspires you? (Workshop post #3)


Hi everyone! I’m very excited to join you on this first day of our blogging workshop. How should we get started? Let’s keep it simple: what we do on each post is creating content. Sometimes, we share videos (like this one I shot, and later edited, while spending New Year’s Eve with my mom back in December).


Though it might not seem that exciting, it just served a simple goal: capturing a moment in time. Watching a Rolling Stones concert on tv with family, while waiting for a new year to begin.
