A Christmas in Harlem – A Night to Remember in OKC

A Christmas in Harlem – A Night to Remember in OKC

Not even an ice storm could keep Oklahomans from A Christmas in Harlem. The Mistletoe Jam-sponsored event was the reason that Urban Roots, nestled in the heart of the Deep Deuce district, was transformed into Harlem Renaissance era New York, if only for one night. Inclement weather almost threatened to put the event on ice, but determined [...]

Review: The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told

Review: The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told

Can I be honest? There were two reasons why I wanted to see Oklahoma City Theatre Company’s production of “The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told”: 1) A friend of mine was in it; and 2) I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Any show that can draw  protestors is a must see [...]

My Open Mic Poetry Night Revelation: I’m in Love With a Dude

“I’m in love with a dude, he’s 6 foot 3, big sexy ass lips, he has a Master’s degree…” Thus began my confession at Tuesday night’s session at The Vine Open Mic Poetry Night at Urban Roots. Yes, I chose an open mic as the place where I would publicly declare my love for a [...]

Where the Sistas At? A History of Black Comedians on SNL

Where the Sistas At? A History of Black Comedians on SNL

If all went according to plan, yesterday marked the final auditions held by the folks at Saturday Night Live to decide upon an African American female cast member. The plan, however, was not the original course charted for the show; it was instead implemented in reaction to recent complaints over the lack of diversity on [...]

The Battle that Never Was: An Ice Cold Night @ THE MIC

The Battle that Never Was: An Ice Cold Night @ THE MIC

Looks can sometimes be deceiving at THE MIC on Wednesday nights at Ice Event Center and Grill. Tonight when I arrived at 10:30pm, thirty minutes after the scheduled start time, there were only a small handful of MCs in sight. Within minutes, a couple more were milling around, but it was still a relative ghost [...]

R Kelly’s “Black Panties” – Art or Pornography?

Move over Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus. You guys are so couple of months ago. Make way for the Pied Piper of R&B, Mr. R. Kelly. On Tuesday, December 10th, R. Kelly’s “Black Panties” is scheduled to drop. From the looks of the cover art released by the Pied Piper himself, it appears everything else [...]

Yung Dubble sets the bar high for Oklahoma Hip Hop artists with his recent release, Animocity. His inimitable style has an authenticity that is rarely encountered. While many talk about living a hard knock life, Yung Dubble is a rare breed of artist who actually has a frame of reference of real life experience to [...]

Film Review: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Film Review: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the second film in the Hunger Games series. It seamlessly picks up where the first film left off, and adds a twist that, well, changes the game. The original film leaves us with District 12 residents Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) having won the 74th [...]

The Best Man Holiday – Did it Live Up to the Hype?

The Best Man Holiday – Did it Live Up to the Hype?

After about a month of procrastination followed by a day and a half of cabin fever, I finally broke down and went to see the movie The Best Man Holiday on Friday night. I saw The Best Man on DVD a few years ago (I wasn’t interested enough to go see it at the movies [...]
