Hey fam,

I don’t know if y’all heard about this incident on Southwest Airline. A woman complained that the flight attendant was mocking her child’s name, laughing and pointing at the child. The employee also showed her co-workers the child’s name because she took a picture of the boarding pass. Then she posted on FaceBook. Unfortunately, people found the actual person and bothered her.

Welp now that you know the background story. Let me give you my take on it. First off lets talk about the reason all this started. The child’s name is Abcde. Yes you’re reading it right, Abcde (pronounced Ab-city). Now I have a feeling that the flight attendant wasn’t pointing and laughing at the child, I believe she might have been laughing at the mother. Let’s face it the child didn’t name herself. The mother has to realize that she is the reason her child will face these trials and tribulations. How bad was her labor and delivery?

Since the pronounciation is Ab-city why not spell it that way? No, she has to be extra and add some unnecessary letters. The flight attendant shouldn’t have posted it on social media. That’s something you save for your work holiday party. You know the when they have the contest of strangest things you’ve seen.

I’m gonna’ be honest with you when I say, “I get my animated fix when I take my little cousins to the movies”. Hey, if a 6 and/or 10-year-old isn’t involved by convincing me to take them to the movies for some type of newly released animation film, then honey “I ain’t there”. So it was a surprise, that this particular new animated movie, caught my interest and convinced my brain to want to see it. Yes sir, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse“, got your girl like “Umm, I may have to spend some coins for this new joint“.

If y’all haven’t caught the trailer for the new animated movie or even heard about it, then I’ll try my best to provide a brief synopsis a.k.a. “My interpretation”; so this may be a bumpy ride. Here goes .  . .

“This film focuses around a Brooklyn teen named Miles Morales who’s the newest student at Visions Academy Boarding School for gifted kids. Although Miles rather be home with his African American Dad and Puerto Rican Mom, he’s not, he’s at this school.  Now, while hanging out with his uncle one day, Miles gets bitten by a radioactive spider which of course gives him “superhero powers”. 

“What makes Miles’ story different then the original Spiderman flix is that “O.G. Peter Parker a.k.a Miles Mentor” is killed by an “Evil Crime Boss” which sets off a high-tech dimension-opening device. From there, the crazy ride begins. This movie takes the viewers into alternate-universe, where Miles run into an older Peter Parker who lost his “confidence a.k.a Mojo” and is hesitant to be a mentor to Miles, who need help to defeat the evil villain. Despite that little twist, a set of unique side-kicks get involved to help our newest superhero Miles. Such as a punk-rock girl named “Spider Gwen”, a 1930s-era Spider-Man name “Nor”,  a Spider-bot and lastly a pig name “Peter Porker”.

Folks, this animation melody that’s inundated with pop art, psychedelia backgrounds with an unique story is a winner. And from the reviews that I’ve read, it’s a must-see joint to close out this 2018 year. I mean 4 out of 5 stars “ain’t bad“. And if it’s caught my attention, having me want to pay $15 per movie ticket, then hey, that’s saying something. Check out the trailer below.

Where you really surprised? Umm . . . No, I wasn’t.

That’s right folks, it’s that time of year, that “we as Americans” are subject to Trump’s wife horrible Christmas decorations. And this time around, “it’s bleeding (literally) Christmas” in those white halls. Now, I don’t know what Home Design Magazine that this chic eyed, but once again, Trump’s wife failed. Remember, this is the same chic who wore an African safari outfit that carried “colonist implications”  while visiting Africa; and let us not forget about the “I really don’t care, do u?” jacket. Soooo, to have a hallway full of plain “red Christmas trees”, yeah, that seems about right.

Now, am I the only person who thought that her decoration was horrid, dull, boring and not “hip”? Well, no. I’m just late with my opinion about it, is all. But apparently, as The Grio reports, when Trump’s wife unveiled the White House’s official Christmas decor, Twitter went to roasting. And I tell y’ah, some of these tweets that were posted, made a sarcastic person like myself well . . . proud ✊🏾. If you don’t believe me, then check out below.

And FINALLY . . .

The White House states that this year’s Christmas theme “suppose” to represent the “American Treasures” by honoring its unique heritage of America.

“Crossing into the Grand Foyer and Cross Hall, patriotism, the heart of America, takes center stage with more than 14,000 red ornaments hanging from 29 trees. The choice of red is an extension of the pales, or stripes, found in the presidential seal designed by our Founding Fathers. It’s a symbol of valor and bravery.”

And I say, “Bullcrap . . . bullcrap . . . bullcrap”!!!

Anywhoozle, it appears as if Trump’s wife tribute to Dr. Seuss won out, and you know what? I don’t like it. It reminds me of “that time of the month” and I’m all out “pads a.k.a women stuff“.

PS. Yeah, I know I didn’t call Trump’s wife “First Lady”. And why should I? I don’t call her husband President. So fair is fair.

Hey fam,

Today is Giving Tuesday. For some, this is the day that you are to donate to a favorite non-profit. Now, this doesn’t have to be money. Perhaps your time. Maybe there’s a soup kitchen that you can help out with. Let’s be honest, we shouldn’t think about doing this just because of the holiday season. This is something that we should do during the other times of the year.

In keeping in the giving, I send you to the Charity Navigator. This website gives you information regarding charities. Did you know that some organizations use a large part of your donation for administrative purposes? If you’re concerned about that, perhaps you should look for a local charity.

If you have old blankets and towels, Jax wants you to think of his friends. Please give to your local animal shelter. Or you can give them new blankets, some stores have them for 8 dollars or less.

Well fam, I hope you participate in Giving Tuesday, or giving any day.

Hey fam,

Hope your Thanksgiving went well. I had a great one. Until Twitter messed up my favorite Thanksgiving show. I didn’t notice certain things. Maybe because I casually watched the show.

If you have no idea about what I’m talking about. The Charlie Brown Thanksgiving special. Someone decided to talk about the show discussing it as if this was real life. The first thing that was talked about was that Franklin the African American friend was sitting by himself on one side of the table. For this, I have no answer. Just found that interesting that I never noticed. I was thinking maybe it was made in the sixties, but no it was released in 1973. So umm I got nothing

The other thing that drove people crazy was the fact that Woodstock (a cute lil bird) and Snoopy had a perfect Thanksgiving Dinner. Which included the turkey. They were so shocked that Woodstock ate a bird. Really people? You do realize this is a cartoon? What no words about the fact that Snoopy (the dog) was buttering the toast? How many dogs do you know that can wield a knife like Snoopy? None!

Well, I’m going to go and look for another stimulating debate on Twitter. At least it’s not talking about the orange man.
