'I WISH WE HAD MORE TIME'
I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.
I wish we had more time.
One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.
I wish we had more time.
Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.
I wish we had more time.
I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is! Rest In Power Brother.

Here’s the truth about the Errol Spence Shawn Porter fight. IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT. From the opening bell Spence and Porter executed their game plan, which made the bout more entertaining than the famed fights of lore. Each circling the other, Porter boxing while Spence stood his ground stalking.
It did not take long for the leather to fly, as both men stood toe to toe in exchanges of shots that would leave lesser men down for the count. As Spence, ever stalking, moved forward, Porter would turn him, and fire shots from various awkward angles of deliver, connecting on Spence, who returned fire, often initiating the exchanges.
Neither man giving an inch, until the 11th around where Spence delivered a left-hook, distorting Porter’s face, in slowmo replay, causing Porter’s eyes to rollback into his head, but was it conditioning or the heart of a champion? The only reaction from Shawn Porter to Errol Spence’s power was to touch his glove to the canvas, receiving the 8-count from the referee.
Post-fight, the evidence that there was a war going on, in the ring for 12-rounds, was evident on Spence’s face, which appeared bruised, with a cut from an accidental headbutt. Porter appeared none the worse for wear, but internally, those body shots Spence delivered, constantly during the fight, must have caused him discomfort after.
Undoubtedly, this war will go up as the fight of the year, if not one of the best of all-time. But what it has caused both men will only show in the future. A bruising-fight changes a fighter, and Porter being in so many, due to his style of Boxing, conditions him to fight on.
What of Errol ‘The Truth’ Spence? In the post-fight it appeared, Spence seemed to have aged. Though Porter lost by 12-round split decision, he took something from Spence. He took some of his youth. A good war of a fight will do that to a Boxer, putting years onto him—years which can only be measured in the ring.
It was not the experience, nor the performance Errol expected by his demeaner post-fight. Willing to give Shawn his just due, but not willing to give Porter his part in making the fight, Spence claimed it to be all-him why the fight did the numbers it did on pay-per-view.
And, this is where the topic of Cleveland, Ohio came up, which caused the end of the post-fight interviews, and the eruption of Cleveland, and a nappy-headed blonde Caucasian woman to call an end to the post-fight, which end was disappointing to the viewer. If you are around Black people, but once, as it is known by the community to happen, it gets rowdy—if you can’t handle it—and become fearful—maybe just maybe you shouldn’t be the one supervising the event. That topic for another time.
Back to the Cleveland reference Errol so easily utter from his lips. “Cleveland is the city where we come from, so run run run.” Cleveland is a city that loves to hate what it loves; Errol should take note. It’s a city where one has to be liken-to Jesus of Nazareth, having to travel out of Nazareth to have his message heard, and then returning once his popularity’s made.
It’s not like Houston or Dallas where groups creating music are supported. It’s not until they make it big someplace-else that revelry and celebration is bestowed upon them, but let the topic of Cleveland come up, let one spit negativity concerning the ability of one from Cleveland to build a fanbase, like Errol did—watch the place erupt. It’s the city that shows love, but hates what it loves, and Spence gained no points in the love department.
It’s possibly the Polish-German influence on the city, because those people (Germans and Polish) know how to gripe, to an unbearable complaining, just listen to sports talk radio, after a Cleveland Browns game. They will complain their way out of coaches, quarterbacks and receivers. And, that influence, where sports and entertainment is concerned, makes it appear the city loves outside influencers better than its own, but don’t sleep. People got a taste of what breeds in a Cleveland-heart, as Porter, his father and team stood cool, calm and composed, while Spence and his team were up and out.
It becomes evident, the love Cleveland has for its own, when a group of Cleveland natives get together, like experienced during the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight. It’s like a family reunion, like no other city.
So, a split decision win for Errol ‘The Truth’ Spence vs. ‘Showtime’ Shawn Porter, here’s one who is calling for the rematch. It was too close to call, and as far as the judges with 111-116, are they blind or are they bought? Particularly, along with the outcome of the fight, with what happened during the post-fight, with Spence being snippy about his less than ‘The Truth’ performance, and Shawn Porter showing up, giving us true ‘Showtime’, a rematch is most definitely warranted! Question is—will Errol Spence be up for it?

DON’T EXPECT ADOS TO BE ANY DIFFERENT THAN THE CHINESE IN AFRICA
As always, the fight to reclaim our-story amid his-story is an immense undertaking, to one day overtake to reclaim once greatness, in this land called America. No matter the writing or photographic mis-recorded record, often replaying-in white-wash, ADOS built the United States of America, we as a people-built America from the soil up! Clearing the land to the dirt roads, to the railroads, to the paved roads, to the highways and byways.
When we arrived, there was no America, it hadn’t been built yet. Considering that fact alone, makes America—not an immigrant story, but an ongoing discussion on correcting the mis-record, to provide people, who toiled hard and long, their rightful place amongst those who stir the direction this Country, we love, is going.
Many persons question, who may appear to resemble those of Us who fought the good fight to be “Free Human Beings” thru Civil Rights, to Human Rights—"why does it matter, we are all Black, right?” They go on to concern themselves and involve themselves in the discussion of Reparations for ADOS.
The question is not when, but how soon all the various Black Nations, within Countries, will request Reparations for the ills continuously put upon them by those who are in deficit of melanin.
And the answer we will give those of Jamaican, Haitian, Brazilian, etc., and those migrating to America from those lands, others and Africa is—get your reparations, and we will not ask for yours, for what you went through, as you should not ask for a piece of ours—no matter how you’ve blended-in, in America, under the term “Black”. Besides—there are many Africans who owe ADOS Reparations for their crucial involvement in the Transatlantic Slave Trade. You might say, the Africans are broke, there is no money from Africa. Well, like Reagan—don’t expect ADOS to be any different than the Chinese (now) or any other colonizers of the origin-land of human beings, and man(kind).

NETFLIX MAKES A MISSTEP CANCELING LEE'S 'GOTTA HAVE IT'
#TFRReport - Netflix Cancels She's Gotta Have It!
40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks | Spike Lee is shopping the show, for the 3rd-Season.
This un-development is a disappointment, and a poor decision on Netflix's part. Our #TFRPodcastLive Show. this weekend, was/and is still about the genius of Spike Lee flipping the time-line of 'She's Got To Have It' and 'Do The Right Thing', potentially making Mookie (Do The Right Thing) Mars' father (in She's Got To Have)!
Spike flipping the time-line, and story-line to make this possible-- my wife and I were waiting for Season 3. Heads at Netflix should reconsider their decision.
Not to mention, Spike has his hand on the pulse of America, with the discussions between ADOS and immigrant Blacks, and his masterful capture of sex/love/lust/redemption, where it concerns 'Darling' and her suitors, is at the right temperature.
The development of the next generation of children as players in parents' relationships, and the expansion of heartfelt scenes, in Season 2, captured the acting prowess of the actors involved in bringing Lee's Vision to Life. Heads at Netflix should reconsider their decision.
Tune-In this Sunday at 5:30pm for The Film Review Live: Movie Music Culture Politics Society Podcast on Crayzon Deeyon profile on Facebook, for our thoughts on the potential flip of time and story, and the push to make sure Season 3 is seen, heard, recognized and appreciated.
She's Gotta Have It - Stars DeWanda Wise, Anthony Ramos, Cleo Anthony, Lyriq Bent, Elvis Nolasco, Fat Joe, and a stellar cast.

THE FILM REVIEW: MUSIC REVIEW ON OGYG BY CRAZY DEE
Let me say first, OGYG is the group that kicks-off TFR: Music Review Show, where we here at the film review expose music that is Hip Hop & Hip Hop influenced, to say-- this is the music we'd like to hear in films-- Independent & Hollywood. So Filmmakers, producers, score/soundtrack compilers-- contact the artists spotlighted on TRF: Music.
Second, Attention Hip Hop Artists and Artists influenced by Hip Hop, submit your songs & videos to The Film Review: Music Review Show. Submit videos and songs to: email@example.com, include: Your Name, Group Name, Label Affiliation, ISRC Video Code; Contact Number & Contact Email. Label Subject - Attention TFR: Music Review Show.
Now, the 1st The Film Review: Music Review with the first Artist/Group to be reviewed OGYG featuring Issa Twin and I.C. Jonez - 'Woke'. The opening is an introduction to what's to come-- focusing on the melody w/ both Emcees splitting a 16-bar count- Dope! 'Woke' puts one in the mind of UGK's 'International Players Anthem' where Andre 3000, from Outkast, opens w/ a 26-bar verse over the melody from 'I Choose You' by Willie Hutch, establishing the melody of the song before David Banner's beat production drops on the one.
The melody on 'Woke' is mad-crazy! But when the beat drops-- the repetitive hi-hat, with the hand claps, instead of a snare drum, pushes the song. The claps hit while the Emcees place syllables up against it.
The Mix is on point! The bass-line floats in the back, accenting the kick drum, sounding as if it were played with live instrumentation. The greatness of the song is how the producer, BlackMayo, chose to make the bridge the bed Issa Twin and I.C. Jonez flow their collaborative verses-in. Giving the illusion the two are flowing over elements being played by musicians.
The Flow on 'Woke' is now, but gives homage to groups who could trade lines within verses, groups like: Run-DMC, Whodini, Stetsasonic, The World Supreme Team and other great Hip Hop acts!
The Hook/Chorus/Refrain-- the most important part of a song-- finds good standing in the 'Woke' record, as both Issa Twin and I.C. Jonez trade lines w/in the hook, which is catchy and most def-- sing along friendly-- like follow the bouncing ball. It is the topic and topical.
The Verses: tell the story of Hoods Across America, and due to the verses along with the chorus-- 'Woke' can easily become a national and international hit. We here at the film review have coined the style of music OGYG are creating 'Gospel Upliftment Hop'. We rate 'Woke' by OGYG featuring Issa Twin and I.C. Jonez a 10!

Have we forgotten the special counsel Ken Starr?
Ken Starr was empowered to investigate President Bill Clinton & his wife; Whitewater, Monica Lewinsky, etc., he turned in his report, the Republican House (Repubs) drew up the articles of impeachment, voted to impeach, and it moved to the Senate to convict Bill Clinton.
Impeachment is a two-part process where the accused office holder is indicted (impeached) and then, if voted on, convicted (found guilty of the offense of high crimes while holding office). In the case of Bill Clinton he was impeached by the House, but the Senate did not vote to convict, so he was able to remain President of The United States, but he lost his ability to practice law, etc.
So, basically-- millions of taxpayer dollars where spent for Ken Starr to investigate Bill Clinton, his wife, Whitewater & Monica Lewinsky, but in the end Trent Lott wasn't able to whip the votes necesssary to convict Bill, and as a result that was the end of Trent Lott's career, as his prominence fell to the back, like Joseph McCarthy.
And, this is exactly why there will be no impeachment of President Donald J. Trump.
There are lots of American Taxpayer dollars being spent on the investigation by special counsel Mueller to find if the 2016 Presidential Election outcome was influenced by operatives from Russia, and more over-- if the Trump Campaign colluded with the Russian operatives to win the 2016 election. Facts have leaked to the media, much like facts leaked during President Clinton's Presidency, and the media has done the usual feeding frenzy-- finding the most salacious extras to throw-in on the Trump story, to absurdity-- just like they did with Bill Clinton, and previously, what they did to candidate Gary Heart, which now has been found to be a setup and not an extra marital affair.
Why there will be no impeachment, you ask? The Democrats (Dems) are too genteel. After American Taxpaper money is spent, millions upon millions, like Ken Starr-- Mueller will be paid, his staff paid, lawyers, who have ideological bent, will be next for the supreme count, like Brett Kavanaugh, but on the opposite ideology; the report turned over to the House, if the Repubs are in, will be discredited and wither to the root,
Nancy Pelosi, who wants to be House Majority Leader again, until she gets so old that she can't possibly keep down the body-shakes won't move on it, and if she did-- which she won't-- the Dems in the Senate under the leadership of Chuck Schumer won't want to impeach, because-- for some reason-- after 'taking the Senate & House', the Dem members will be in fear of losing seats. Have you noticed-- that is the Dems' Method of Operation and excuse why they never move on anything-- the worry of losing seats.
So, what the Dems will do-- Pelosi helping Schumer not feel/see/repeat the fate of Trent Lott will not push impeachment of Trump. Instead, they will push to try to defeat him in the upcoming Presidential Election, in 2020. And that is why Impeachment of the President-- Not Going To Happen-- due to the history made/learned during the Clinton impeachment.

Is it me, or is the media discarding Michael Avenatti?
Wasn't it great? Wasn't the media salacious when reporting Avenatti's client's claims of a sexual encounter with, then, regular old businessman Donald Trump? Weren't they almost too zealous in their pursuit of stories concerning President 45, when he was a cheating businessman, and didn't Michael Avenatti fore fill that need?
Sure he did! He kept the stories coming, even to the point where 45's personal lawyer, through examination within the Mueller probe, brought partly by what Avenatti brought to light, cooperated with the probe, and is now indicted. Yes, Michael Avenatti was the media darling, the media had to have him on their various news shows-- Rachel, Jack Tapper, etc. But, what went wrong?
True indeed, what he brought forth shook even 45, who could deny, or even claim to be able to shoot a person, and still be elected. His (Avenatti's) witnessed accounts of misdeeds by 45 and his cohorts paid-out dividends, ratings gold-- sensational headlines, follow-up reporting months on end, on end, on end.
Donald Trump Beats Stormy Daniels Defamation Lawsuit
But I ask once more-- what went wrong? Could it be Avenatti made a miscalculation? Did he move and make a misstep? What happened, wasn't his information credible, vetted and used by the media? Yes, his information was credible, but within hubris, a person who has had success with what they bring to the masses, can many times build or be built-up for the fall, for displaying excessive pride in their confidence to continue to deliver.
Was it his declaration or his hint of a possible run for President 46, which made the media pump breaks on information Michael Avenatti provided during the Kavanaugh hearings? Or, was it the nervousness of the Democrats?
The Dems, those spineless, non-message having haters of their on party and party constituency. They say-- Trump is not a politician, but he sure is whooping their butts, getting everything the Republicans (Repubs) want passed. Able to talk to the usual suspects thought enemies of The State, without need of worry of being called a trader for negotiating with terrorists, or enemy States. Unlike President 44, he (45) was able to get an associated justice appointed to the supreme court, who was under accusations of sexual misconduct.
The Dems, the party of the so-called resistance-- is painted and is nothing more than a party of obstruction. The collective "leadership" have no new ideas, and they have no message, but to remain genteel while the Repubs impugn their character in hearings. So worried about gentility they (Pelosi & Schumer) dared to talked down on Maxine Waters, who spoke up and out about the so-called "resistance".
The Dems, who claim to be better politicians than Trump. The ones who say he's not qualified, due to not being a politician for years into decades; well there lies the problem with Michael Avenatti. Once he hinted at running for President, his usefulness, with the facts on Businessman Trump-- his usefulness became 'nuisance' when he, a non-politician, began to explore the presidency.
And, there, right there-- there where he hinted is where the decision to begin to ignore him began. He provided information, to the media, that could have helped the Democrats fight to right the Kavanaugh confirmation to, instead, desolvation-- where the support of Repubs would have been removed, leaving Kavanaugh's chances ended, but the Dems, in fear of a Democrat President, not coming from the career ranks of Democrat politicians, is why as a collective-whole, talking-points, the dems dismissed Avenatti's vetted 3rd Kavanaugh accuser.
Once the media heard the dems talk discredit of Michael Avenatti, the media outlets, who had once loved Avenatti's facts on Trump to salacious reporting, began to speak like the dems, and say the accuser of Kavanaugh, though vetted like Avenatti's Trump accuser, was not credible.
There is where the dems and the liberal as well as conservative media outlets have let down the American Citizen, as I close. Being in Washington DC, doing "the people's business", has become about only career politicians doing "the people's business"; and as long as the media is conservative or liberal leaning-- willing to be tools for the dems or the repubs, we will not have fair and balanced reporting-- when those, like 45, who are inconvenient for career politicians, can be silenced, with a dismissive word.
Did the media use and discard Michael Avenatti? Sure they did, and the reasons why are written above.

left, Numagomedov; right, McGregor
First, in my opinion, Nurmagomedov must of been on drugs. There is no way that "talk" causes a reaction of jumping into the audience to fight. And, the rivalry between Ireland & Russia, didn't know there was one, but since there is-- it's still no cause for this type of irresponsible action on Khabib's part.
Second, the reaction from Dana White is a little suspect to me. From the playback, it appeared the scene turned into a WWE battle royale, and somewhat appeared to be staged. If it wasn't staged, how would one explain Dana's reaction? It's the biggest night, ever, for UFC, obviously spurred on by the popularity of McGregor coming-off the Mayweather fight; they should be thanking Floyd every change Dana, UFC & McGregor get.
Let's stay on 'second' for another paragraph. How do you explain Dana's attitude? The Governor of Nevada was in the arena, he had to be rushed out, the more than probable law suites which are coming, we know they are coming because- with that maylay-- someone had to have gotten injured. He (Dana White) isn't in dismay? He's calm as can be, which makes it look as if it were staged. Plus, he still-- when I turned it off-- was prepared to let Nurmagomedov talk at the post fight. McGregor wasn't pressing charges? And, the ramifications seemed to be less than what would be expected.
Third, with all of the excuses the talking heads where coming up with to protect Khabib, as if they were his PR, you'd think he just, a few seconds before, wasn't using his hands, and body, that are considered lethal weapons, to pound on someone in the audience. The collective attitude of the announcers, Dana White, McGregor toward Khabib, a man who they say wasn't experienced in the pre-fight buildup, where insults are hurled like body-blows to build interest in the fight, was somehow overwhelmed, so, mentally, by the pre-fight insults, that he couldn't control himself after winning against McGregor. The same Nurmagomedov who wore a blond afro wig after defeating Michael Johnson; we know what the truth about Russia is concerning anti-Black rhetoric and mentality, especially us who have researched and have learned how the caucusoids forced the original Russians out. Oh-- the original Russians where Black. Do the research.
Which brings me to my close. What would the attitude toward Khabib Nurmagomedov's post maylay have been if he were Black? Let's setup the reality of the night. The Governor was there, rushed out of the arena, thousands, if not millions were spent to secure the venue, the audience was subject to a mad push/rush of bodies involved and avoiding the after fight, Metro had to enter the Octagon, and McGregor was assaulted by one of Khabib's teammates.
What would have happened, and what would be the attitude concerning the finish of the night, if Khabib Numagomedov and his team were Black? And, with having the answer to that question be so obvious-- the same aftermath: charges, fines, suspensions, loss of passport, etc., etc., etc., should happen to Nurmagonmedov.

THE DEMS ARE ALREADY WET DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH
The Dems are about to be washed during the mid-terms. They eat against and on each-other, but are soft-acting when it comes to where they stand on demographic social economic cultural issues. Don't hold your breath, thinking the Dems are taking The House-- they have said nothing to move the people, they're about to be washed.
