I love this show. I love everything about it. Well, except for the painfully beautiful Logan Browning aka DWP's weakest link.

The show' creator, the amazing, Justin Simien has created what most filmmakers and show runners only dream of; A perfect multi-perspective piece that includes the only thing that matters in any incident worth writing about - the complete and absolute personal view of each participant. Which is tough, trust me.

The entire season one is crafted in a way that it keeps telling the same story - the black face party - but every time from another character's point of view, and while considering the essence of what makes us do things as human, love, hate, sadness, pressure, pain. The script is just so damn smart and thoughtful, and funny and emotional, and yes, I am jealous.

The acting is pretty fucking fantastic as well! We are talking about a lineup that will make ANY PRIME TIME show, or mega film proud: Brandon P Bell Antoinette RobertsonDeRon HortonJohn Patrick Amedori, Jemar Michael and my favorite -Marque Richardson - all do an amazing job, and I can't wait for their Hollywood take over. 


One other nugget is the fact that Tina Mabry (one of my favorite young directors) and Barry Jenkins (oh, you know, Barry Jenkins) have director credit on a few episode and both leave their distinct footprint though respectful to the piece.

So, what's my problem? Relax. Logan Browning isn't on par with the cast, script or the directors. Sorry, but she isn't. And it's not that I am comparing her to the incomparable Tessa Thompson because I don't. I just didn't believe her acting most of the time. I still binged the show in 2 seating though. The show's creators and Netflix are working on season 2 as we speak, and if they decide to leave Logan as Sam, I hope they'll consider getting her some nonacting lessons.




Marc Maron is a funny guy. His style of uber realistic and dark comedy has been the perfect tone for a generation that has had enough but is, even more, fitting during Trump's America.

The opening bit talks about the day to day news blasts coming from the white house will have you nodding in sad agreement while you'll try laughing. He moves into the 'I am at the age where I only do what I want because I am about to die any minute' and set the grounds to 'remember the time when you realized your dad is an idiot?" and don't even get me started about the -I am over art...

The special is all that you can expect from Maron, a top comedian that is reminiscing the great Carlin with his wittiness and sense of timing. His best trait is the fact that you do believe he is suffering and just waiting to expire while writing his self-observational lazy bits.

I am not sure if I laughed or was just nodding in agreement throughout the Rolling Stones and the hat buying bits.

Watch the trailer here and then watch the full show on Netflix.  Oh,  and twitter that Mofo and give him love.




Armaghetto is an animation series for the adult that worry about what the future look hold for us.

AnimationMeet James White: a friend, an artist, musician, and creator of the "Armaghetto" series.  Armaghetto is set in a dystopian future where Donald Trump is still president and gentrification has gone too far. The first episode, La Bruja, is centered around Omari, a Dominican man living in the Bronx who wakes up late for work after an ominous dream.

His series is inspired by the developmental changes the Bronx, specifically, the 10454 neighborhood, is experiencing currently.


Animation is the process of making the illusion of motion and the illusion of change[Note 1] by means of the rapid succession of sequential images that minimally differ from each other. The illusion—as in motion pictures in general—is thought to rely on the phi phenomenon and beta movement, but the exact causes are still unclear.

There are some forms of animation that do not feature a rapid succession of sequential images, but these are usually not considered to be "true" or "full" animation. For instance, the physical movement of image parts through simple mechanics in magic lantern slides and the movement of the projector (the magic lantern) in phantasmagoria provided popular moving picture shows.


JLO is filming SHADES OF BLUE in Mott Haven 

If walking under the Third Ave Bridge is part of your morning commute, well, you might be in for a treat in the next few days as The Bronx's favorite child; the incomparable, ageless Jennifer Lopez is here filming her NBC show. Yup!

JloSecurity is tight, so don't even try to come too close. But, feel free to gaze.  This shoot, following French Montana and Romero Santos in July, marks the bridge's come up from the ratchet hip-hop crews all mimicking the same car/smoke-machine/Henny/booty style, ultra-low-budget music videos.

Maybe now we can get the DOT to clean it up.  So, go check out Jlo, and tell her we - here at the BLOX - are waiting...
