MUSIC TO MY EARS: DAFT PUNK ARE HEADED TO TV

Music geniuses Daft Punk are currently working on a BBC TV documentary. We really don’t know much about the music duo besides they make great music and they wear helmets. Their identities are pretty mysterious. The producers behind the documentary promises to give us an intimate view of Daft Punk’s artistic side.

No word on if the documentary will ever give us an up close and personal view of their personal lives. I highly doubt it thou. This group has gone through great lengths to keep their lives private. They freaking wear helmets. I would be totally surprised if they did on-camera interviews without their helmets. That is if they do any interviews at all.

SHE IS SO FANCY: IGGY AZALEA GETS A GIG WITH MTV

 Rapper Iggy Azalea has been getting a lot of flak from lots of spectators and her hip hop peers for not writing her own rhymes. Say what you will about the blonde bombshell, but while all of you are talking Iggy will be adding a new title to her resume. Iggy has been chosen to hot MTV’s House of Style.

Yes House of Style is coming back. I remember watching it when I was a kid and Cindy Crawford was the host. Reviving this show has not been easy, this is MTV’s second attempt at bringing it back. During this season on House of Style, Iggy will visit the best vintage stores in LA and some music video sets as well.

House of Style will premiere on August 4th on MTV.com

Can the fancy rapper pull this off?

WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO TELL MY SON: THOMAS HAS NO VOICE

Someone please call the authorities, because it’s going down over at the Thomas and Friends headquarters. Micheal T. Sherman who is the voice of Thomas the tank engine , Percy and Diesel, has quit. Sherman says he is being underpaid. After giving his voice to Thomas and his Friends for five years, he was never given a raise. Sherman says with the success of the show and the home videos, he should not be paid survival money.

I believe it is important to move on from a situation if you are not valued says Sherman.

I am totally shocked that this kind of drama can bare it’s ugly face on such a hit children’s TV show. I also think Mr. Sherman was right to leave. Being underpaid and asked to put your best foot forward is an insult. I pay good money for all of the Thomas and Friends toys and books. It sickens me that the companies employees are not being taken care of.

Although his voice will be missed. His departure was necessary. Way to go.

Straz is on a roll right now. First they get a dynamite series from 50 cent and  his team. Now they are giving Lebron James the opportunity to help produce a show as well. Survivor’s Remorse is totally going to become a trending topic. BET’s The Game better watch out. While their story lines are getting dry, Survivor’s Remorse will be taking over the court. The comedy series is about a young  basketball player who has signed a life changing deal with an Atlanta Basketball team.

Once he realizes he is not dreaming, dealing with his reality creates all  kinds of personal issues for the player. His past just will not let him be free and it starts to mess with the young player.

ATTENTION ALL COSBY KIDS: IS BILL COSBY RETURNING TO TV?

When I was a kid I did not know my father. So I would always imagine what a great father would look and be like. I didn’t have to think for to long, thanks to the Cosby Show. Dr. Huxtable aka Bill Cosby was a dotting dad who didn’t take any mess. In my  mind he was my dad. Well daddy is coming back to TV.

At the young age of 77, Mr. Cosby still has some tricks up his sleeve. You know the saying never burn bridges, well this is why. Thank to Mr, Cosby’s longstanding relationship with NBC the network  is welcoming him back with open arms.

Family sitcoms seem to work for Mr. Cosby and if it isn’t broke don’t fix it. NBC is currently writing a show that would follow the same story line, this time Mr. Cosby would be the patriarch o f his family. Being that times have changed so much, I am pretty sure there are plenty of family issues that the previous Cosby show didn’t get to cover. Hey NBC I have a show topic, Bill’s find his granddaughter on Facebook twerking. Let’s see  how he would handle that.

The show will be taped in front of a studio audience, while 3 cameras will capture the footage. Attention audience department I think you should book an auduience of much older and younger adults. Ask people to come with their grandparents. Older people know what great talent looks like, today’s youth like to laugh at things  that are just not funny (like people fighting online, in a shakey video). Family time needs to be revived. When I was a kid the whole family would sit together and watch a sitcom together, that barely happens these days. I miss the good ole days.

Mr. Cosby’s new show should debut next summer. I will keep you posted has production starts.
