I May Destroy You- Season 1
Ozark- Season 3
Season 3 took longer than expected to arrive, but I'd been waiting and was excited when it did. It was 'ok' to me; for reasons I can't disclose to avoid giving spoilers. I haven't revisited this season like I did the others. I had many questions that I felt were loop holes, but maybe they will be answered in Season 4. Even yet and still, Ozark is the shit.
The Boys- Season 2
Kobe Bryant, Gianna Bryant

Atlanta has been making waves during this pandemic
literally. The city has been the talk of many conversations for being 'wide open' and hosting so many club parties with not a mask in sight. With all the negative under tones, I want to shine light on something positive there.
This Holiday season, Meals on Wheels Atlanta kept our elders in mind and is advocating that you volunteer, adopt, donate, or offer love to a senior in need. You can learn more here. In addition, they have also kicked off a #passitdown campaign of hand written recipes. Andre 3000, "
Benjamin Andre to be Exact", is participating and offered up his family's 'Quick Lil' Apple Pie'

On December 12th, Barcelona became the testing site for a COVID-free music festival. Over 1,000 people were welcomed to attend, each having to take a rapid COVID-19 test prior to entry. In about 15 minutes, the results would return and those whose results were negative were granted entry. It worked. PRIMACOV was a success!

These limited-edition cookies are inspired by Lady Gaga's 6th studio album, Chromatica, which released in May earlier this year. You can snag you a pack in your local convenience store beginning January 2021.
To spice the hype behind them, OREO and Lady Gaga announced a 'Sing it With OREO' campaign where you can 'turn your voice into musical messages of kindness, with an OREOgram'. Affirmations, well wishes, encouragement... any kind thing you can think of. Once you record a message, the message is transformed into a song that can be shared with loved ones. You, also, enter for a chance to win a Lady Gaga experience, which can include merch... concert tickets.. meet and greets etc.
No word yet if there is a distinct flavor with these. The colors, however, will always be.

It's Happening!:: Sister Souljah announces long awaited The Coldest Winter Ever sequel, "Life After Death"
Director and Screenwriter- Francis Ford Coppola decided to give us a 'new cut' for Godfather III. Essentially, this is a new edit and revamp of the film. Different beginning, middle, and end. A new experience for the final chapter of Michael Corleone.
"The Godfather Coda, The Death of Michael Corleone" released TODAY on Digital and Blu-ray.
Godfather III had many flaws
(like not paying 'Tom Hagan' his desired salary to be in the film) and plot holes, but I don't hate it. I am one of the few that looked past that and still enjoyed the film for what it was. Coppola restructured both Godfather I and II into the amazing chronological 7 hour film known as Godfather Epic, which I watched every day for one whole week one time smh. If that is any indication... I am excited to see what genius he put forth towards this one.
Watch the Full Trailer below:

Ya'll ain't give me 40 acres and a mule
So I got my glock .40, now I'm cool...
The creator of Luke Cage, Cheo Hodari Coker, and Hov have teamed up with Netflix for an upcoming thriller. This film will be an adaptation of the novel, Forty Acres by. Dwayne Alexander Smith; published in 2014. According to Deadline, this Coker written adaptation is depicted as The Firm (Tom Cruise) meets Get Out (Jordan Peele). Exciting right?
Additional producers and executive producers include James Lassiter, Aaron Kaplan, Niles Kirchner, Bill Strauss, Mike Epps, Dana Honor, and Dwayne Alexander Smith himself. If you aren't familiar with the novel, the book is a story of a young black attorney who uncovers a shocking conspiracy during his journey of confronting race and power. The film is still in early development stages, therefore no cast lists have been released. It's on my radar though. I'll keep you all posted.
