All in the Family and The Jefferson LIVE

Live in front of the audience was LIVE, but when Jamie Foxx, Oscar winner, acting as George Jefferson in the All in The Family, even his co-star Anthony Anderson and the rest of the cast either giggle or laugh, flubbed his lines. Jamie Foxx handles it like a professional. Woody, who played Archie Bunker, could not control his laughter, he turned around to hide his laughter, that’s what happened when you do live performance in front of millions of people either with the studio audience and TV audience. There was another one when George walks on Bently’s back the boom mic appears in the frame.

The only actors who were believable were Marisa Tomei, Wanda Sykes, and Jamie Foxx.  Other actors Ellie Kemper, Ike Barninholtz, Anthony Anderson, Marisa Tomei, Wanda Sykes, Mara Gibbs, Jennifer Hudson, Will Ferrell, Amber Steven West, Stephen Tobolosky, Sean Hayes, Jackee Harry, and Kerry Washington. They did a tremendous job in performing their roles. if this show gets an Emmy Nomination, these actors deserve it.  

Woody Harrelson and Marisa Tomei sang the opening song “Those were the days” it was perfect. The episode they did was “Henry’s Farewell”, which aired in October 1973. In which they meet the Jefferson at the party say farewell to Henry Jefferson, George’s brother

The script was written by Norman Lear himself, a fantastic comedy writer.  If people wanted to be a scriptwriter for television, they should learn from the best from Norman Lear writings and his shows.

The name mention in conversation was Shirley Chisholm,  Democratic in 1968 she became the first black woman elected to the United State Congress. In 1972, she became the first black candidate for a major party’s nomination for President of the United States, and the first woman to run for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.

In The Jefferson pilot, “A friend in Need,” premiere in January 1975, George demands that Louise hire a maid. However, the couple ends up hiring a sassy maid.

In the LIVE version show in 2019  and the IMDB mention someone else, which was a decoy. We did not know who will play the maid until Marla Gibbs appeared in the doorway of the Jefferson apartment. She was the original maid in the series. The studio audience and the TV audience was surprised to see, and she still knew her lines, and she did not flub her lines at all, she was a fantastic performer.

In the original show in the 1970s family hour was considered to be the 8 pm hour, Norman Lear and the executives pushed the FCC to show the program around the 8 pm slot, not 9 pm or later, of course, there were lawsuits back in those days, and so Norman won the case. The N-word was used on the show, live in front of the studio audience and the TV audience that shocked America, and it made news back in the 1970’s.

The point of these two iconic shows tells the relationship between black and white and how they were treated differently and the language they used back in the 1970s. We could learn a lot about the relationship back then, today too much chaos. They are still showing the classic of All in the Family and The Jefferson on syndication.

There are few shows, such as The Goldbergs on ABC they used foul language too, but it is bleeped out, which is considered to be in the story content.

The same thing with Norman Lear shows on the story content and how it was used on the air. Especially during a family hour at the 8 pm slot.

If you missed the episode either catch it on demand or they may repeat it, during the Memorial Day weekend.

The Nobel Peace Prize: Family and Friendship can make you successful in life

If you watch The Big Bang Theory, the theory is family and friendship will make you successful in life.

Getting a Nobel Peace Prize is far better than Emmy, Grammy, Oscars, and the Tony awards. Seeing celebrities is obvious they will win, because of their portrayal of a character that makes us believe that they embody that character and make us think that they were real, and we applaud for there performance.

Getting a Nobel Peace Prize, is the highest award of all. Scientist solving the world’s problem. We could be a scientist.  Why is it f—-ed up? It could be economy, crime, drugs (we have too much of crime and drugs already), and what technology can help us do.

Teacher and Professor are stressing their students to become great thinkers and be better leaders. Find a solution and make  America great. We need engineers. We need great minds and able to work together.

When we see our child growing up, what are there dreams and goal in life. It may cost money. There are our children, and we must help them in any way we can to make them succeed in life. They have to take what’s in front of them and make it better for they could survive in this reality of life. No one is going to hand over things for them; when they get older, they have to work and be responsible. Parents should be involved in their child education. Who are the best teachers for their children – the parents? They know their child better than teachers in the public school.

I never know the writing is a powerful message to reach other people and share our ideas and knowledge of what we know. I hated writing when I was younger. But I found out, that we can create stories and fantasy by writing. Cursive handwriting is not obsolete. It’s mandatory.  

Now we have videos and YouTube, and they stress the same thing. We have to write about what we want to share. We have to edit ourselves. My professors and teachers stress this every day keep a journal, that is your backup, your secrete, your life. Keep it with you. If you keep it on a computer, sometimes computers can get a virus or crashes. Save it to a cloud drive, and you can access it anywhere. But make sure you have enough storage and remember your password.

Every day, we see crime and drugs, and it must stop.  What’s the solution? Built something big. Built something that people can’t penetrate. Don’t hurt or kill people; that’s blood on your hands. We have to stop crime, that’s why we need engineers. Math and science or the STEM program can help us in the future.  

So when they graduate from High School, College or University. It’s the knowledge and research they have to do, and they must apply what they know.

Billboard Music Award 2019: Drake Wins

Wow, that was incredible opening from Taylor Swift, the marching band performing “ME.”  She was awesome.

Then the security guard caught Kelly Clarkson sitting next to Terry Crews, and the seats belong to Florida Georgia Line, the security asked her politely to move, and she gracefully sang Florida Georgia Line songs, to convince that she is the host of the program and still the Security Guard did not believe her. So he escorted her out to the stage.

She then sang “Broken and Beautiful” from the soundtrack from Ugly Dolls premiering May 3, 2019, in theaters everywhere, while  Avengers: Endgame is still grossing sales. If you haven’t seen it yet, it is still playing. No rush. It’s not the end of the world.

Avengers: Endgame Who will Survive

If you are a fan of the Marvel Superheroes movies, they made 22 movie’s in all. Starting with Iron Man (2008) and ending with Avengers: Endgame (2019). But more will come this summer. Or Is it over?  The cliffhanger for the Avengers: Endgame is that who will die? Watch this.

Does Captain America lives or Iron Man live? Thor? Even I don’t know. Who shot J.R. Ewing from Dallas, it’s a TV series from the 1980’s. Look it up.

Here’s a tribute of all the films as shown here.

From the last scene of Avengers: Infinity War, almost half of the superheroes dissolved, or evaporated. I don’t know who will live or die. Well one of them will die. But how many? And if they are dead will there be a sequel or prequel of the movies? Oh well.

In the Avengers: Endgame Tony Stark sends a message to Pepper Potts because he was hungry and he needed to pee. Being in the Iron Man costume, there’s no way he can pee in the outfit. He will need Iron Man diapers, not made in Kansas. Plus his oxygen supply was low too.

Meanwhile, Thor, Black Widow, Captain America, and Bruce Banner must figure out how to destroy Thanos. Thanos is indestructible nothing can kill him, he can destroy planets, universe, and superheroes. Where are Thanos parents? Can they talk to him for not killing the superheroes?

As long they have a great storyline and story arcs, this will put you on the edge of your seat – for three hours. At the same time, they must figure out who will come back, and possible more movie sequels. And also there are monumental battle scenes of Thanos. He still won’t die.

Did you know Robert Downey Jr, read the entire script? So he knows who is not coming back. The movie was filmed in an undisclosed area of Georgia. Some of the actors have worked together in previous films.

If you are going to watch the post credit scene after the movie, just be appreciated that men and women who work hard on this movie. The visual work and the sets are incredible to put them together. They always need great people to create visual effects, to that you must persuade your child to study math and science, without these two they won’t go anywhere.   

It’s like a soap opera in space, the drama, the fights, and awkward humor to keep this movie afloat for three hours. I hope they will have an intermission in between the film. Who will sit there for three hours straight? Don’t eat popcorn, eat bananas for cramps and don’t drink too many fluids. I bet they would sell Avengers INFINITY  Diapers at the box office. Bring a pillow and blanket also.

So go see it this weekend.

The Curse of La Llorona

She’s coming to take your children.

She should have taken the audience too, they were giggling throughout the movie.

The Curse of La Llorona is a Mexican folklore. The story is a beautiful maiden woman by the name of Maria. She married a nobleman, and they had two boys. Her husband was a traveler and a business person. Someone had to make money and provide for the family. But when he comes home, he would give his attention to the boys and denied Maria. She did not know why he would do this to her. Eventually, it drove her crazy.

So she spied on her husband when he was in town and found out that he was going out with a younger woman. It was not his sister or cousin, but with another woman.

Maria takes her two sons to the Santa Fe River and drowns them. And then later she immerses herself too.

In heaven, she is denied entry, until she finds the soul of her two sons. And she is cursed to wander the earth looking to reclaim their souls.

Dressed in a white gown and wailing for her children. She takes lost and abandoned children as her own and drowns them in hopes of recovering their souls that will permit her entry into the afterlife.

In other words, she wanted to join her sons, that she killed.  

This story used to scare kids not to go at night or disregard their parents if they do. They will not come back.

La Llorona has infiltrated nightmares from Mexico to the Southwest region of the United States.

The Curse of La Llorona takes place in the year of 1970s in Los Angeles where Linda Cardellini is a single mother with two children and social worker. Who finds herself in a supernatural phenomenon presence of La Llorona, an evil presence who wants her children.  Their only hope to survive La Llorona deadly wrath is a priest and the mysticism he practices to keep at bay.

Linda Cardellini – Scooby Doo Movie (2002), Freaks and Geeks (1991 – 2002)
Roman Christou – His first major movie
Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen – Her first major movie
Tony Amendola – Father Perez Annabelle (2014)

He’s the only character in the movie that is Conjuring Universe Series including in this movie.

This movie was actually good and scary. The quietness and tension will make anyone be scared of the dark when it is quite. The only part was the audience laughing and giggling in the movie, it makes no sense. It’s supernatural horror. The audience should have nightmares.

The movie was creepy and frightening, great jump scares, it made me threw my popcorn and my drink on my date, that scared her the most. Plus she got wet. Then she dumped her soda drink on me. At least we were hydrated and did not faint. Stay hydrated!

Michael Chaves is a fantastic director; his direction of jump scares was different than other movies. It’s a great horror movie for date night or going by yourself, that’s what happened to me on occasion I would ask a girl if she would like to see a horror movie. She would say yes. Then when the climax of the film comes along. She would spoil the movie and walk away to the lobby, while she waits for me to come out. Never use tinder to find a date and if they have seen it the night before.

The acting in the movie was fantastic. Overall it was a great movie. I gave it three out of four stars.

Go see it this weekend, especially on Easter.  

My date zero.  

American Idol 2019: Top 10

Riley Thompson

If you have been watching or a fan of the show, American Idol just announced their top 10 out of 14 that the judges on American Idol selected them.

The judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, and Lionel  Richie selected the contestants themselves for the past months, and they were satisfied by their choice. Ryan Seacrest did not choose; this is not America’s Got Talent.

Now it came down to the American Idol fans to choose who will be the top 10. Some of them were right, and some of them were wrong, but it was America choice. You have to pick.

As you may know, these judges are well respected in the music industry, and they know how to pick, but since it was America choice they have to choose who will likely to win American Idol 2019.   

All of the contestants were fantastic the night before especially there performance. Some of them connected with the audience and some did not. The music industry is a tough crowd to join, you may have a fantastic voice, but will the radio audience will like it? It’s all ways the voice of the singer that will move the audience to buy your CD or other formats.  

The top ten were:

Madison Van Denburg

Jeremiah Lloyd  Harman

Laci Kaye Booth

Alejandro Aranda

Lionel Hardy

Wade Cota

Walker Buroughs

Uche

Alyssa Ragu

Dimitrius Grahman

When Uche didn’t make it in the top ten, I don’t know what America was thinking. Lionel Richie picked him as one of his save this week, Uche is an entertainer, he entertains and performs his song. He knows how to attract the crowd. He connected with his audience and they dance to the song.  If you want him to perform at your wedding, he used to be a wedding singer and now he is on American Idol. Please vote him through. Don’t go by his looks, go by his performance and he is an entertainer. He can move a crowd.

Luke Bryan saved Dimitrius Graham, and this guy can harmonize and sing with other top celebrities. His voice is incredible. I am glad Luke saved him; he needs to be in the competition. His voice and his performance are fantastic.  I don’t care what people say about him. He can sing and perform. Go by his performance and vote for him next week. He should not go home. Forget about the Games of Thrones on HBO. He can control dragons with his voice.

Katy Perry save Alyssa Ragu she has a fantastic voice, and she sang a Katy Perry song “The One that Got Away.” It was better than Katy Perry. If people don’t vote for her, she will go home next week. So please vote Alyssa Ragu to be your American Idol. And don’t even think about Ragu Spaghetti sauce.  I bet the sauce wanted to vote for her too.

All the rest of the singers are great performers and entertainers they sang fantastic. Don’t let them go home. We have to vote for them. Get the app on the Apple Store app and Google Play store app. Remember you have to vote, if you don’t vote, you assume that they will be saved apparently, this is not a presidential race. This is American Idol. Save the contestant that you like the best.  

The contestants that went home are

Riley Thompson

Evelyn Cormier

Eddie Island

Ashley Hess

They did their best, and not everyone voted who they like. It’s a popularity contest, but they are fantastic performers and entertainers.

Vote for them, don’t assume they will be saved.
