Comedy: ‘Django’ Guilt – Black People’s Two-Week Pass (Video)

The Official Comedy channel on YouTube has identified a social phenomenon that kicks in every time a movie like ‘Roots’ or ‘Django’ comes out – ‘Django’ Guilt. When guilty-feeling White people feel obliged to overcompensate for the wrongs done to Black people, as revealed to them by the latest movie along that injustice theme. But caution, Black people: The be-nice-to-those-poor-people window is only two weeks. In the meantime, go nuts… speed, weed, whatever you need. Do that *ish while guilty feeling White people pardon you. But when time’s up…

Quentin Tarantino Argues With Interviewer About The Violence In The ‘Django Unchained’ Movie (Video)

There was some great dialogue going on in this interview with director Quentin Tarantino initially regarding the movie Django Unchained, which I thought was a very good film. The real dialogue involving slavery & why Quentin Tarantino made the film began to unravel when the reporter Krishnan Guru-Murthy of Britain’s Channel 4 News tried to steer discussion to fit whatever agenda he was attempting to push. In Quentin Tarantino’s defense he’s answered questions about violence in his films for years so for the reporter to retread the same questions was not only a bit nauseating but derailed what could have otherwise been a good & insightful interview with more answers regarding the film. I don’t believe reporters & interviewers need to be all “buddy buddy”, “Friends”, or “D*ck riders”, when dealing with their interview subjects, but they don’t necessarily need to be a douche either.

R&B/Alternative: Frank Ocean – “Wiseman”

Frank OceanFrank Ocean created this song “Wiseman” specifically for the “Django Unchained” film that comes out tomorrow starring Jamie Foxx. Unfortunately director Quentin Tarantino says he was unable to find an adequate scene for the song to fit in the film so it was excluded. Frank Ocean appeared to express no hard feelings via his tumblr page as he mentioned that he thought the film was still “ill” without his song. He also has the words to the song posted on his tumblr page too if y’all want to peep it here.  It’s a shame because the song sounds & feels very good. Deeply great emotional song where a large part of the beauty is in the songwriting.


Quentin Tarantino Considered Making a ‘Luke Cage’ Movie (Video)

Yeah man! Can you imagine? In the above clip, grindhouse movie guru Quentin Tarantino actually thought about producing a Luke Cage (one of Marvel Comics’ first Black super-heroes) movie… or something like it. Tarantino is a comic enthusiast, too. So, you know it would have been raw!

“After ‘Reservoir Dogs,’ I had considered doing a Luke Cage, Hero for Hire movie. [Hollywood producer] Ed Pressman owned the rights at that time, and we talked about it,” Tarantino said. “I talked to Larry Fish [Laurence Fishburne] about being Luke Cage, and he really liked that idea. Then I ended up writing Pulp Fiction.”

– Tarantino to MTV News

Well… you never know. In the meantime, “Django Unchained”Tarantino’s newest movie (due out Christmas Day) – should be good.
