The Greater Brillance of Dave Chappelle

1

Cross Thought

If you do something right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all. That is the greater brilliance of Dave Chappelle. He is a differentiated comic whose introspection and thoughtfulness open the door to a deeper meaning of comedy, if the viewer choses to engage it. With his incredible comedic range, from jokes about the vulgar to deep thoughts about the meaning of race relations and marriage in America, Chappelle can attract anyone with his magnetic and intimate style.

There are few 21st century pop culture figures as intriguing as Dave Chappelle. Of course you could take his act at face value, but I found that the more you try to dig in and understand who he really is you are left more questions than when you started. His mysterious persona is intertwined with his genius because as a viewer you are unable to tell who the real…

To The Moon And The Stars

Hi Lovelies

Today I thought  I’d share a few ways you can ‘go green’ and make a fashion statement this coming St. Patricks Day 🙂 Growing up I never worried much about wearing something Green on Paddy’s Day, but I know in a lot of places it can be a tradition:) I found all these items on Asos.com and they don’t break the bank either 😀

My first pick is this gorgeous little sundress that goes lovely with these mid-heeled sandals if you’re lucky enough to get great weather this Paddy’s Day 🙂

Now if you’re really not into dressing up or if comfort means more to you this oversized jumper would be perfect 🙂

Anger_Management_-_Sleazy_Man

WRITTEN BY RYAN FU @FU_BEATZ & DOC G

The word douchebag is one of the great words in the English vernacular. It says so much in just two syllables. Douchebag started out as an actual product but has morphed into a whole of meaning. It’s a label that tells you everything you need to know right at the away. You don’t refer to someone as a douchebag and ever have anyone ask what that means, everyone knows all they need to know.

Urban Dictionary says a douchebag is someone who has surpassed levels of jerk and asshole but is not yet a motherfucker.  It’s a brilliant way to describe a douchebag, because most douchebags are harmless creatures who exist only to annoy and frustrate. Of course many douchebags become more than just mosquitoes, their bites start to hurt, and over time a douchebag can evolve into something much worse.

One of these reasons why we decided to do this article on douchbags is because I saw a photo of Justin Bieber taking multiple selfies of himself kinda working out without his shirt. When I saw that, my immediate response was, “what a douche! But not in a negative way but rather like this guy is willing to do anything get any press for himself.

20140627-002831-1711250

This is one of the many qualities that a douchebag has, and here are other examples on how to be a douchebag?:

– You do annoying Selfies  usually with your shirt off

– You pretend that your a Pimp surrounding yourself with a lot of fake ass bitches

– You Flash your Wealth as much as you can (Money, cars, houses, boats, etc.)

– Your a Media Whore aka Bieber- You need be in the Public Eye constantly

– Your a Social Media Whore- You need to constantly need to post or write something on your Social Media Network

– You have a fake tan

– You have a barb wire tattoo

– You have a tattoo of your name on your body (Just in case you forget)

– You still wear Ed Hardy gear

– You consistently talk about how much you love your life and how much money you make?

– Acting or dressing like a rock star

– Your motto is Ho’s before Bro’s

– If your Chris Angel

– Popped Collars

– Dudes who have fake balls on their trucks

– Wearing a Visor (Half hats)

– Too much hair gel or Frosted Tips

– Weird Piercings ( Nipple, Navel, Eyebrows, Penis Piercings are Cool)

THE TEN BIGGEST
 DOUCHEBAGS OF ALL TIME

10. MARK SYKES.

 Mark_Sykes00

 Look the name up, go ahead, take a few moments, because I’m sure the name isn’t familiar to most, but the actions he took a century ago have managed to affect us every day. Sykes wasn’t a Prime Minister, Foreign Secretary, in fact he never held any elected posts. No he was just a lonely Foreign Service worker who at the end of World War 1 help decide which countries would be ruled by which kings in the Middle East. In one fell swoop he managed to create Arab hostility over the interference if western hands in their affairs, piss off Jewish dreams of a homeland, and lay the seed for conflict that still continues. He created Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Lebanon and all the other wonderful countries that have oil underneath their sand. Sykes is such a douche he is forgotten by history and yet his work remains.

9.  BARABBAS

 barabbas2

Pontus Pilate decided he was going to release one of his prisoner. One condemned soul would be freed to live his life. Barabbas was the douchebag that was chosen instead of Jesus. Of course if Jesus doesn’t get crucified and do his whole first I’m dead now I’m not trick, Jesus doesn’t get to spread his message. Jesus was only 33, he could have been spared, spent the next 10 years preaching his hippy shit of love and peace and then been crucified so he could do his trick, but instead Barabbas got to go free. How did he spend his later years, the same way he spent his first, doing nothing, way to live up to your freedom.

8. VINNY TESTAVERDE

ia6nKCjcEm0Q

This is hard one to pick because Vinny did go to the U (University of Miami), but he also gave me my biggest gambling lose ever.  He was leading the Jets to another awful season and finish with a last season game against Seattle. I was battling for last place in my football pool, a lot of money was on the line for whoever was lucky to finish dead last. It came down to the Jets, the team I bet, hoping they would actually lose, and that lost would win me money. It wasn’t really a hope, the Jets had played like shit since 1970 so I was feeling good, until at the end of the game Vinny leads the team down and dives for the winning touchdown. Besides the fact that he actually never made the endzone, Vinny never ran for tds, until the day I needed him to lose. Douche

7. ANYONE OSCAR VOTER WHO VOTED FOR KEVIN COSTNER AND DANCES WITH WOLVES FOR BEST PICTURE AND FIRECTOR OVER GOODFELLAS AND MARTIN SCORSSESE.

oscars_007_slide-66a560c26e08498c43ecf8ed1a646ce72d846502-s6-c30

This doesn’t need to be explained.

6. STALIN

 stalin

Technically Stalin is more of an asshole monster, but for all his mass genocides and indiscriminate destruction, beneath it all was a true douchebag. The type of guy who fucks up, but instead of accepting the blame kills a million people including the people who helped him fuck up then proceeds to blame those people for the fuck up. He also sent most of his family off to Siberia in exile, but for all of Stalins shit, he never cost me money, like Vinny T.

5. HENRY KISSINGER

hist_us_20_war_viet_pic_kissinger_henry_harvard_life

LBJ sends this little rat to Paris in 67 to try and make peace with Vietnam. He is part of a team that irons out all the plans and gets ready to end the war in 1968. Kissinger then tells Nixon about this, Nixon gets in touch with the South Vietnamese tells them hold out for a better deal and when I am elected I will get you it. Kissinger doesn’t tell LBJ he is sinking the plan, but soon the peace talks end, Nixon gets elected, and Kissinger becomes he loyal man bitch. The war in Vietnam continues, war comes to Laos, Cambodia and finally Chile. 5 years later Kissinger wins a Nobel prize for bringing about peace in Vietnam, of course he negotiated the exact same plan as before, except now the war has gone on 5 more years and cost more lives.

4. JOHN WILKES BOOTH

 John_wilkes_booth

Lincoln wins the Civil War, frees the slaves and dies at a fucking musical. Booth took away the person who could have truly changed society, douchebag.

3. MARK DAVID CHAMPAN

Unknown 

Speaking of people who took away great people from the world. How can you shoot John Fucking Lennon, seriously I don’t care how crazy you are, or how many times you read Catcher In The Rye, it’s still Lennon. Plus like the great Bill Hicks said and then had stolen when he was dead by Dennis Leary, how can you put 7 bullets into Lennon and use none for Yoko Ono who was standing next to him? Also why not shoot Michael Jackson? Christ if MJ dies in the 80s before he molests kids his death is truly sad, so thanks Douchebag.

2. CHRIS BROWN

Chris_Brown_mug_shot

 I’m sorry only a douchebag beats the shit out of Rhianna like that.  Only a douchebag does that and shows no remorse. Only a douchebag like this would be viewed by some as a hero. Chris Brown is Ike Turner on a bad dad, least Ike played a mean guitar.

1. DONALD RUMSFELD 

tumblr_ls74h1R4tk1qbq86qo1_400

In the coming years Donald’s douchebag rating will only rise, as people get more time to look back and see how this man truly fucked up this world. He is Mark Sykes with an army, Stalin without the cunningness, and a Kissinger without the accent. Years from now people will read about the history of W Presidency and will paint Dick Cheney as the Darth Vader, Bush as the asshole and Rummy as the douchebag who planned a way but never thought to think about the peace. Great job taking over a country who had fought against Iran for decades and quickly turning it into Iran’s biggest friend. Good job expanding terrorism throughout the world and bringing jihad to every corner of this place. Good job letting hundreds of thousands die.

Fred Stoller Interview- The nicest guy you sorta know [Update] with his Court Case with the REAL Kramer from Seinfeld

Fred Stoller Interview– The nicest guy you sorta know (Update with his Court Case with the REAL Kramer from Seinfeld)

Written by: Ryan Fu @fu_beatz

You know when you’re at a Starbucks and you see someone familiar but he’s not an acquaintance but he could be a friend. You know you’ve seen him on something like a tv show, a film, or even on those annoying car insurance commercials. You can’t remember his name but you know that you’ve seen in movies and you like him. As you rack your brain for his name, he grabs his coffee and leaves, leaving you wondering what was his name? His name was probably Fred Stoller.

Frederick Stoller aka Fred is an American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and an all-around “good guy.” You’ve seen him on  bunch things like tv shows and movies. I first remembered Fred from a scene stealing character from Dumb and Dumber. He played the “Get off the Phone” dude.

Genius right.

 Stoller_PMC1

This is the magic of Fred Stoller. A career that spans over twenty years in which he takes ordinary and unremarkable roles and turns them into characters we fight for and love. He’s been on everthing like Everybody love Raymond, Ned’s Declassified School Surivival Guide, Wizards of Waverly Place, Joe Dirt, etc. But you probably best know him on the mega hit show Seinfeld as himself and he kills it. Fred does his job well and people love him for it.

Lately, Mr. Stoller has been know for the guy who was on Seinfeld that is being sued by Kramer.  Wait.  What?

    The_kramer

Not Michael Richards who played Kramer but the real Kramer, Kenny Kramer.

According to Mr. Kramer and NY Daily News, (Read the article here)

“Kenny Kramer – the inspiration for Kramer on “Seinfeld” – has filed a $1 million defamation suit against a former writer on the sitcom for defaming him and his tour business in a new book.

The suit says Fred Stoller, 55, smeared Kramer by claiming his tour guides would yell the famous Seinfeld line “Not that there’s anything wrong with that!” at gay people while leading tours through Greenwich Village.”

 apr-06

He then writes a letter to Mr. Stoller calling him a “a treacherous, two-faced, backstabbing pathological liar.”

I can’t speak for Mr. Kramer or his relationship with Fred but I can speak about the man who is Fred Stoller. It is hard to hear someone talking ill about Fred because he is the one of the nicest celebrities (there are only a few) I know. He is always willing to help out other people, he always poses for fans and he will always be entertaining to everyone, even a paparazzi.

Here is a short interview with Fred Stoller @Fred_Stoller

Ryan Fu:  What are you famous for?

Fred:  “It depends. For teens Wizards of Waverly Place, but a combination of appearances on Seinfeld, Raymond, Friends, and Dumb and Dumber and other guest spots.”

Ryan Fu:  How did you get started in the biz?

Fred:  “Stand up in NYC.”

Ryan Fu:  Tell me about your experience on Seinfeld

Fred:   “As a writer it was weird. I was mostly on my own. Everyone was doing their own thing, but it was amazing getting a story on. As an actor so much fun being with those iconic stars.”

Ryan Fu:  Your relationship with the Real Kramer (Kenny Kramer):

Fred:  (Check out this Video Interview Below on his statements)

Ryan Fu:  What’s your book about?

Maybe We’ll Have You Back: The Life of a Perennial TV Guest Star

Fred:  “The books about all my adventures on all the shows I’ve been on, writing on Seinfeld, what’s it like to pass though some of the biggest shows in the last 20 years, and my one night stand with Kathy Griffin. “

Ryan Fu:  Your thoughts on Kramer and his lawsuit.

Fred:   “I’m glad he thinks I have a million dollars. “

*UPDATE ON STOLLER VS KENNY KRAMER CASE

From the LA Weekly:

In classic Cosmo Kramer fashion, Kenny Kramer took offense, accusing Stoller of accusing him of being homophobic. (Got that?) The plaintiff said that the tour never even went to Greenwich Village.

But after a seven-month court case, a judge in New York dismissed Kramer’s defamation suit.

“All he said was, during the bus tour the tour guide hits on every popular catchphrase that the show is known for,” Stoller’s attorney, David Albert Pierce, tells us.

Judge Barbara Jaffe said there shouldn’t be any anti-LGBT stigma attached to the phrase; even the gay community praised the episode after it aired in 1993. She concluded:

Although Stoller finds the exercise annoying, any reasonable reader would understand it as Seinfeld-related shtick, even if the phrase was repeatedly screamed out as the bus wended its way through “gay-dominated Greenwich Village.” And, although pointing to gay people and taunting them with the phrase from within a large tour bus wending its way down tiny streets in Greenwich Village may reasonably reflect homophobia, nowhere does Stoller depict any pointing and he never uses the term “taunting.”

Stoller tells us that Kramer “just twisted it” when it came to reading his book:

When I found out I was being sued, he sent some rabid Facebook message to me, not getting the humor of my book and misconstruing it.

——————————————————-

It’s good to know that nice guys can finsh first in which throughout the whole case Stoller maintained his sense of humor as he kept rolling with the punches. Please read his books and check out his comedy shows, which you can take a look at his tour dates on his Facebook.
