Upon Further REVUE: Positive K – I Got A Man – YouTube

I only roast the ones I love. And I used to love this damn song. I didn’t realize how creepy it was at the time though so I’m partially blaming some of my trash youth ways on this bop (yea, I know. I’m fulla shxt!). This jawn is the anthem of all dudes who holla at gas stations. It’s also the anthem for all men that say, “What? You can’t have a friend?” (Has that line ever worked?)

Upon Further Revue: Lionel Richie – Hello

Some things haven’t aged well over the years. Lionel Richie’s video, “HELLO” is one of those things. The song is damn near perfect. But stalking your blind student is NOT the move. The 80s were wild! Feel free to drop a suggestion for another old-school video you’d like to see TPT review.

Dick Gregory: Race, Comedy, & Justice

Its hard to predict whether Dick Gregory will be most celebrated as a path-breaking comedian or a trailblazing civil rights activist. Its impossible to imagine the history of either movement without him—or without his unique blending of the two. In the early 1960s, he became one of the first black comedians to perform before integrated audiences. In 1967, he ran for mayor of Chicago against Richard J. Daley, and a year later for president as the Freedom and Peace Party candidate. The author of and contributor to many politically charged books, Gregory is still a staunch, wry political voice across a range of issues as varied as nutrition, social justice, and the environment. Chicago Sun-Times columnist Laura Washington interviews the provocative and always unpredictable Gregory.
