On our April 27th, 2017 episode we played you this commercial from Shea Moisture that people are getting really angry over. In case you missed it, here it is:
Now, what in that commercial could start an uproar? According to people on social media, it’s because it likens an African American girl being bullied for her natural hair to two white girls disliking their hair because of lack of volume. This caused Shea Moisture to cancel the ad, and issue this apology:
Wow, okay – so guys, listen, we really f-ed this one up. Please know that our intention was not – and would never be – to disrespect our community, and as such, we are pulling this piece immediately because it does not represent what we intended to communicate.
So we gotta ask, do you think they had to apologize? Or is this just another case of people overreacting? Send us an email and let us know what you think.
Singer Nichole Nordeman was sitting in a Dallas, Texas airport when she decided to post up an adorable FaceTime moment between some parents and their little baby, who was being watched by her parents. So, what would make a simple post like this go viral? Well, just read without skipping ahead.
How many guys can relate to this picture? Throughout time girls have accused their guys of numerous things. Whether it’s saying he’s thinking of his ex, or judging her weight, guys have heard them all. Well ladies, according to Woman’s Day (Yes, we see the irony) guys don’t even think about these things. …
I know this is Good Friday, but it has just become a VERY Good Friday. You see, Star Wars Celebration has been going on all this week, and it was pretty much universally accepted by everyone that we would be getting our first look at Star Wars: The Last Jedi …
It’s been awhile since we shared with you some of the new music we’re loving, and that’s why on the April 13th, 2017 episode we did just that with our segment “Music You Can Use”
First up was our review of the new album from Mastodon, Emperor of Sand. If you haven’t heard this yet, you’re one of the few, because it ended up being the band’s first number 1 album.
This is the single, “Show Yourself”
Then we took a listen to some new singles, including one from Incubus called “Nimble Bastard”. This will be off their 8th studio album, fittingly called 8, and according to some leaked photos, we should be hearing a track on it featuring Skrillex, and Deftones’ Chino Moreno.
We move on to a band local to our area, Motionless in White. Their new album, Graveyard Shift, is looking to be a monster, including Korn’s Jonathan Davis on a track.
Check out the first track, “Loud”
Seether was the next band on the docket with the song “Let You Down”, off their May 12th release Poison the Parish. Neat fact about the album name, singer Shaun Morgan got it from his hatred of social media celebrities, like the Kardashians. Can’t say we blame him.
Finally we rounded things out with the latest from Papa Roach. New album, Crooked Teeth, hits your hands May 19th, and according to Jacoby Shaddix he’ll be rapping on at least half of it.
This is the song, “Help”.
So now that you heard the goods, hear what we had to think of them on this very music-induced episode.
This is the video everybody’s been talking about, of a man being dragged off the plane for his refusal to leave due to their not being enough seats for a United personnel to be aboard. This led Dr. David Dao bloodied and, rightfully, embarrassed. After just apologizing for having to re-accommodate people, United CEO, Oscar Munoz, responded with this.
“This situation was unfortunately compounded when one of the passengers we politely asked to deplane refused, and it became necessary to contact Chicago Aviation Security Officers to help. While I deeply regret this situation arose, I also emphatically stand behind all of you, and I want to commend you for continuing to go above and beyond to ensure we fly right.”
Surely there could be more to this story than what we saw, but let’s face it, video is way more convincing than a person’s word.
I know, that headline is super cheesy. But guess what? I do not care. Thor: Ragnarok, the third movie in the Thor franchise and the 456th in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is destined to be one of the most zany, wacky, fun movies in recent memory, I guarantee it. The people behind …
In the April 6th, 2017 episode of our show we shared with you this chart that tells you when you’ll peak for certain things, such as remembering names, finding that special person, or the best chance you have to run a marathon. Now, of course we couldn’t go over all …
Heath Ledger played a groundbreaking role in Brokeback Mountain, and gave us a spine chilling performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight, so it only seems fitting that his life is documented in a movie.
Get the tissues ready for I Am Heath Ledger debuting May 17th on Spike.
