Read In Your Language

Monday, January 18, 2010


So I’m cooling out, keeping a low profile on a dead Saturday. Just came back home from Red Lobster, getting my “Rick Ross” style on with the finest of crab-meats (I co-sign the shrimp deal) with the girlfriend and we decided to lay back in comfort and watch “Bucktown”, with Fred Williamson & Pam Grier (shouts to the original Foxy Brown and the awesome boobies). Me growing up in the “Blaxploitation” Era, I tend to gravitate towards these movies whenever they are on cable. Platform shoes aside, I actually like to see the fashion sense we had during those days.

But you know me. I start thinking about one of the most iconic & influential African American shows ever on television and I ask, “What happened to Soul Train”? After doing a brief recon over at Wikipedia, all I can do is shake my head in disappointment. (II).

We took the L with this one folks.

To even accept the fact that this show is regulated to only being seen on YouTube in clips is a fail. This show was responsible for a lot of people’s music careers. If you got the Soul Train co-sign and call to perform, you had a hit. Simple and plain. Even a lot of the Soul Train Gang parlayed their TV appearances into television or music industry careers. Hell Mr. Johnson wouldn’t have sold all of that Afro Sheen if there were no Soul Train Saturday mornings. What they wore, how they danced, what they said influenced our Saturday nights and the week ahead. To have an award show named after it but no actual airtime programming is an atrocity.

I mean seriously, are we always “on to the next one” to the fact that we discard what is beneficial to us in the first place? I’m all for looking forward and the creation of new things as well, but what have we created that has taken the place of Soul Train? 106 & Park cannot and will not EVER be anything close to a Soul Train so save the “our generation” argument, it’s not gonna work. Look at the decline of good music and the disinterest in the Black Arts these days.

I will say this, when Mr. Johnson got on his BET grind, one of the stipulations should have been to take Soul Train FROM Tribune Broadcasting, take the syndication label away from it, and give it big boy status on BET. BET could have been running re-runs of the past shows, giving the old heads something to enjoy, and at the same time schooling these youngin’s. Those episodes easily show you stage presence (even though some lip-syncing was done), Black music culture, Black couture, and again QUALITY MUSIC.

They should have BEEN released DVD sets. 12 million views on YouTube would give me a hint that people want to see Soul Train. Salutes to a pioneer. I too wish you love, peace, and SOOOOOOUUUUULLLLL!

A little nostalgia:

Rufus f/Chaka Khan “Fools Paradise”

The Dramatics “In The Rain”

Bonus: When style biting goes wrong…

When you did it right 3 years earlier. RIP The King of Pop.

Notice how the Soul Train videos aren't even from the Soul Train YouTube page. SMH

Kibblez & Bitz:

Is it me or are those recent Drake leaks utter moldy cornbread?

Do you really think Nicki Minaj will be able to sell an album filled with that annoying voice?

Why is Khaled still called a DJ when he doesn't spin records?

The $ykotic Don McCaine


Good $hit, $yk.

Seems like these days, life is so insta-live, "don't blink or you'll miss it," that nostalgia has no place. It's kinda like how young kids laugh @ old folks. No respect for the history, the predecessor(s).

I spent many a days watch Don Cornelius' afro & listening to his semi-intoxicated speech.

Shout out to Marilyn Macoo, from 'Solid Gold' as well. Even they have an infomercial hocking their wares.

Salute for bringing it back to the sunshine.

Soul Train was a must see every Saturday. Planned the day around it. They have vintage episodes on "Centric", which is a spinoff network of "BET" if you want to check it out.


And yes Syk, that should have been available for purchase before "Def Comedy Jam". Meaning, way back.

I always assumed DJ were Khaleds initials or some shit

"Shout out to Marilyn Macoo, from 'Solid Gold' as well. Even they have an infomercial hocking their wares."

And the big booty chick with the shiny forehead and gapped tooth...

mousie what up! See I didn't even know that. Proves my point, sh*t is on No-See-TV.

LOL @ Rob

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real money.
It gets down to choose a correct partner who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
