George Bush Wants to Give $30 Billion to AIDS-infected African Nations

Filed under: africa — admin @ 12:41 pm

What do you do when your approval ratings are in the crapper and a nation grows tired of your mad quest to plunder the Middle East for black gold fight for Iraqi freedom? You give lots and lots of dough to sick Africans to cover your corrupt ass.

That’s right whole Dubya’s using the ol’ deflection tactic to cool off some of the heat coming his way. Junior asked Congress for $30 billion to help combat the scourge of Africa and his wife, Laura, plans to tour several countries to see their AIDS programs in action. Okay, I’ll leave the politics out of this and simply say that I welcome the assistance as over 40 million Africans are living with HIV – 40 million! – but I don’t like the abstinence-only push from American officials; it’s impractical to ask a large population of humans to deny one of the very things that constitutes living. How about some condom programs up in the motherland? I think everyone can get with that (except for those crazy ass Catholics). – Jay Wilson

Is the World Ready for a Bald Ms.Universe?

Filed under: africa — admin @ 12:41 pm

Is this the face of the world’s most beautiful woman? Bright eyes, a pretty smile, and slim figure are attractive on an almost universal scale. But Flaviana Matata, who is entering the Miss Universe pageant representing Tanzania, is daring to challenge the norm by rockin’ the baldy. A ballsy move, I must say. While I utterly despise contests of this ilk, which are basically just well spit-shined T+A displays, I’ll be keeping a close eye on Flaviana’s progress. By totally ditching the European aesthetic of long flowing hair for, well, no hair at all, Flaviana is surely placing herself at a “disadvantage”, but it’ll be interesting to see how far she can ride the pony.

Assuming that she has all the right stuff to make it as a finalist, do you think that her Kojak will keep her back? – Jay Wilson

Supernegro Video Pick: Underdog

Filed under: music — admin @ 12:41 pm

Since delving into The Dirtbombs’ Ultraglide in Black – a rock and roll tribute disc covering Mick Collins’ favorite funk and soul songs – Underdog, a remake of Sly & The Family Stone’s track of the same name, has quickly become one of my favorites. The sound isn’t quite up to snuff – it’s a YouTube clip after all – but I suggest downloading the song for the full effect of the band’s energy. Great remake of a classic. – Jay Wilson

About Team Supernegro

Supernegro is the brainchild of Jeffrey Wilson, pen wielder, gadget lover, and hardcore skateboard poser. His hobbies include kicking all sorts of ass in 2D SNK fighters, alternate history, debunking his geekiness (despite proudly accepting the label “sexy geeky” that was given him by not one, but two interns), expounding on the greatness that is Brooklyn, and hating on the Unholy Trio that are trust-fund babies, elitists, and metrosexuals – all things that he’s been called by others (that are print-worthy). A graduate of the “The Poor Man’s Harvard”, Brooklyn College, his worldplay has been featured in various national glossies.

Herobuilders: Create Your Own Action Figures

Filed under: africa — admin @ 12:41 pm

When I was young’un on the come up, I was a Steve Martin (n. poor, Black child). My moms worked her ass off at college as well as held down several jobs just to make sure that her boy led a semi-decent life. I had clothes on my back, food to eat, and the occasional book to read, but in my pre-teen eyes I lacked the true essentials: lots and lots of action figures.

While my friends could engage in colossal inter-cartoon wars that pitted He-Man vs. Transformers vs. G.I. Joe vs. Bionic Six, I barely had enough troops for an intra-mural. I hated everything because of it, as I was twelve, superficial, and easily bored.

Fast forward 21 years. Although I have no desire to play with toys, I’ve found this site intriguing. Herobuilders enables creative types to customize their own action figures, whether from mixing and matching the company’s parts and clothing, or creating a new build based off photo; you can even give ‘em the ability to talk. It’s like playing god, only much, much cooler. I think some Supernegro action figures are in order. What would you guys and gals conjure up? – Jay Wilson

King James to Host Saturday Night Live

Filed under: sport — admin @ 12:41 pm

For years both NBA announcers and fans have hailed LeBron as the second coming of Michael Jordan. And just like good ol’ MJ, he’s doing the SNL thang-minus the handful of championship rings. Deets after the jump. – Jay Wilson

Like movies? Like Black people? Like Black people IN movies? Check out The Invisible Woman, a blogger who drops her two cents-sometimes even three!-on Afro-cinema. Hmmm, I wonder her take on the the Black remake of The Big Chill?

Not having a television keeps me out of the media loop, which, depending on the circumstance, can be infinite bliss or a crime against myself. The latter was definitely the case when Valkor of The Other View mentioned that he reviewed the DOA movie. Yes, the one based on the Tecmo videogame. Did Hollywood keep the bouncy?

Shout Out!: Did You Pick Up Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?

Filed under: africa — admin @ 12:41 pm

Friday evening, the girlfriend and I braved the manic roves of geeks prowling Manhattan in order to land the last entry in J.K. Rowling’s fantasy series. We crashed a book store party – which, when geeks are involved, consists of an electronica mix tape playing in the background and a “magic drink” that tasted suspiciously like the mother of all weenie drinks, Mike’s Hard Lemonade. Two hours later, the clock struck twelve and the book officially went on sale. The lil lady grabbed her copy and we hightailed it back to the land of normalcy – Brooklyn.

So, dear readers, did you cop the Pot as soon as it became available? Or are you doing to wait it out a bit? Or do you not give a damn? – Jay Wilson
