Hell On Wheels

This recent series takes place in the days when railroads were being created for people to be able to travel by way of locomotion. You get several different view points including that of a freed slave turned railroad worker played by rapper and actor; Common. The reasone this series works is because of the cast containing both heavyweights and new names. All of the people that make up the cast and crew do a superb job making sure that the show has an authentic feel to it. I would recommend this program to anyone and would rate it a 7/10.

Detroit Institute Of Art

       I always get promotions in the mail from this institute and I have been plannng go to this museum for a while. They have some really unique stuff here from what I can tell from the flyers. I strongly recommend a visit. It would be a great place to take your girlfriend or a great group outing. I am an artist so I tend to look for places such as this that offer a wide variety of art displays. It is very important to be connected to the art of the past and mak sure that it is remembered and valued. I have rarely seen a professional piece of artwork that I do not find likeable or intriguing. Basically what I'm saying is get off your butt and go visit the DIA.

Amber Rose

I'm not quite sure what to think of this girl. I know she was dating Kanye West at one ppint and is now rumored to be engaged to Wiz Kalifa. I know that she has a guest spot on a BET dj scout show and a commercial where she plugs different flavored vodka drinks. I've heard rumors that she used to be a stripper. To summarize, I'm not quite sure how I feel about ths girl. She doesn't seem to have any discernable abilities, skills or talenta but is always in the media. I remember a Kanye West line from the song entitled Stronger in which he refers to her as a "blonde dyke" so apparently she may have some lesbian tendencies. I'm not saying anything bad aboht that and if anything its a plus. I'm not really feeling the bald head but to each his own. Lets see what she will do in 2012 to grab the headlines.

Reality Television: Good Or Bad For Society

   In my opinion, most of the shows that are being churned out by the entertainment networks are having a detrimental affect on the youth of America and other countries. From shows like Teen Mom, that give young mothers incentives and rewards for their bad judgment, to shows like Jersey Shore which glorify stupidity and alcoholism with an unabashedness that is quite alarming.
  Other shows like the Real Houswives franchise encourage otherwise unnoteworthy, to bicker and fight to their hearts content. This gives a bad representation and reputation to certain groups and cements into people's minds certain harmful stereotypes.
    On the plus side, there are some reality shows aimed at uplifting its viewers. Some that I would recommend are those aimed at finding great artists and TI's new family oriented series TI and Tiny: A Family Hustle. It might be hard to wade through the filth and grime that is reality television, but you may be rewarded for your troubles with a true diamond in the rough.

New Season Of Tosh.0 Starting In Days

    If you haven't been living under a rock for the last 2 years, you havd probably heard of the very popular comedian Daniel Tosh. From his tours and specials including Happy Thoughts, to his comedy show Tosh.0, this comedian has seemed to find his niche. The best description that I could give of Daniel's style is insult comedy mixed with observational humor. He has become very popular through the use of social networking sites like twitter and facebook and video sites like hulu, YouTube, and other such sites. I would definitely rate the show a 9/10 for hilariousness. I am very excited for the new season.
