kind of way when they heard the kind of women they wanted to cast for the movie. For example, “we need pretty girls with long hair that are latino” or we need poverty stricken heavy set black girls”. In my humble opinion, Hollywood aint doing nothing new it just put this information out to the public. In years past, the movie industry would of done the same thing without blasting the information to the general public. Hollywood is and always will be racist when it comes to making movies that involve African Americas.

Tyler Perry Is Stealing Intellectual Real Estate

Tyler Perry has been in the news lately for what one would call an intellectual property theft. Tyler some how has managed to win a court battle of the trade mark phrase ” What

Tyler Perry mixes it up with the media on the ...Would Jesus Do” which originally was filed at an early date by Kimberly Kearney. The Patent and Trade Mark Office said it doesn’t matter who came up with the first phrase. So, I guess Tyler Perry saw an opportunity to cash in on the phrase and decided to trade mark the phrase in the mist of all this. Many other people have done the same thing I know you remember Donald Trump’s iconic phrase “Your Fired” off the hit tv show The Apprentice.

Many are wondering if Tyler will go after other key phrases that are popular in American culture. This could be the sign of a battle of words at the Trade Mark and Patent Office. Ms.Kearney has yet been able to resolve the issue with the Tyler Perry Studio staff. She feels that only is he still the phrase but he is blocking her from getting her Tv show produced as a result of the dispute.

Lets follow this one and lets see how it turns out….

Godzilla Movie Review

I went to see Godzilla this weekend. I found the movie to be a great intro in to the new age imagesof people who may have never seen or heard of the creature. Godzilla started off not to slow and not to fast. I think the movie had a nice blend of love, fighting, and mystery to keep you interested during the film. Now, I have my friends who say they didn’t like the movie for some reason or another but you what you can’t please everybody I thought it was a classic.

Scandal is turning into A Real Scandal

As the TV series Scandal has progressed over the last year or so, the show has gotten

some good and bad review from viewers. Many people don’t feel like Olivia Pope has been portrayed very well on the show. A lot of people see Olivia as the hoe of the show, and just a side chick for the president Fitz, and a sexual fling for Jake. I personally feel like the show is losing the steam it once had. It seems to be turning into a soft porn television show. There are only two more episodes left so, I hope they put the show to rest after this season because it is losing the flavor it once had.

Is Scandal Good for the Economy

Many of you I’m sure are Scandal fans like myself, and just cant wait for the next episode. The steamy hot show has people jumping out their seats and dam near ready to have sex in front of the TV. I mean dam Kerry (a.k.a know as Olivia Pope) has turned on more men then television sets . What makes Scandal so great ? Could it be the writers or is it the actors ? As a result of the show many people are eager to get in front of the TV. Has the Economy been improved since the television drama Scandal hit the air waves ?

.The television show Scandal has become such a huge hit starring Kerry Washington that people, clubs, and bar owners are now beginning to hold Scandal parties. Last night was the season finale before next season.

It seems like Scandal has become an event just like going to the movies. Can Scandal help get people wanting to spend dollars and cents on food, gas, clothes for Scandal parties, and technology ? I think Scandal if it continues on will have a huge impact on the bottom line of the American Economy
