Mike Tyson: War & Peace…

Predictably, the flick garnering outright adoration and even a standing ovation at its first screening at this week’s SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL is the gripping “Tyson” documentary by director and miraculous Tyson wrangler JAMES TOBACK. Told entirely in the lisping voice of the former champ in footage culled from countless hours of interviews, the father of six recounts his rise and fall, from early days being bullied as a fat kid (“It was kill or be killed”), and being forced to defend himself in juvenile detention at age 12, to his training with legendary Cus D’Amato (“I knew all the skullduggery … most of these guys lost the fight before it even started”), to his days as world heavyweight champ (“Once I get in the ring, I’m a god”), and ultimately, his grisly public fall from grace (“I lost the desire to be a champion”) including a prison term and the infamous ear biting incident. Along the way, it’s revealed, Tyson squandered almost $400 million and lost nearly everything he’d ever earned, physically and emotionally. Toback has known the boxer since 1985 and was able to capture a raw and previously unseen look at the fighter. In Tyson’s words, “Jim, he just elicited all this stuff out of me, I don’t know how he did it.” Far from glossing over the fighter’s problems and controversial missteps, Toback’s subject instead offers a shockingly open assessment of his tumultuous life, verbally beating himself into a corner again and again. The film is slated for commercial release on April 24. Read more HERE.

Survivor photo from the scene…

In case you’ve been living under a rock today, a US AIRWAYS plane crashed into the Hudson River in NYC today after a bird flew into the engine. Luckily, everyone survived after what’s been described as a “masterful landing” in the frigid waters. Of course, they managed to pull the surviving “dude” out of the crowd for the commentary:

And on a Mac, at that…

POP KILLER///WTF?!?///NEW “ELECTRIC COMPANY” SHOW SUCKS

January 10, 2009  |  Uncategorized  |  Comments Off on POP KILLER///WTF?!?///NEW “ELECTRIC COMPANY” SHOW SUCKS

Wow, to take a killer funky 1970s kids show like the iconic ELECTRIC COMPANY and remake it as a pseudo R&B’d-out crap fest is quite the downer for a generation of ’70s kids with vivid memory banks. For those born after 1980, the show was like a Superfly version of Sesame Street starring Bill Cosby and Morgan Freeman, among others, that implanted the sticky mojo of the era into the minds of impressionable young viewers in an epic & indelible way. Peep the difference:
