The Musings of an Eccentric Diva

Welcome to the Musings of an Eccentric Diva. My motto is: Giving Hollyweird movies the finger one movie at a time. Enter at your own risk (insert evil Vincent Price laughter here).

FRIDAY FLASHBACK JAM: Jaz-Hawaiian Sophie 1989

Jay-Z is living proof that money can cover up a multitude of sins. To see him lifted into the air in this video is priceless, who knew camels were airborne animals?

Movie Review: Trick Baby 1974

Blue (Mel Stewart) and Folks (Kiel Martin) are two small time con men looking for the ultimate score. Blue is an older, seasoned con who has been in the game for quite some time and Folks is a newbie who looks up to Blue. Folks has a secret weapon that gives him an edge in the con game, he’s a Black man who looks White. His skin tone grants him a pass into circles that Blue could never infiltrate. Folks and Blue put the make on an elderly gent for $10,000, which in turn causes the man to have a heart attack once he figures out he’s been had. What Blue and Folks don’t realize is the elderly gent has ties to the Mafia. In the meantime, Folks has possibly engineered their biggest score ever for $150,000 with a group of wealthy real estate investors. Unfortunately the duo may not be able to cash in on this score because they must choose to either cop the cash or flee the city from the mob. No more spoilers from y’all!

This film is based on the legendary book by Iceberg Slim of the same name. I have read the book and this movie only covers part of it. Nonetheless, I enjoyed it for what it was worth. It’s not your typical waka-waka Blaxploitation film, no hookers and pimps running around in ridiculous attire. It was just the story of two con artists looking for the perfect score and running out of luck along the way. The role of Folks was played White actor Kiel Martin, I guess they didn’t have time to locate a biracial actor to fill this role ehh? I’m not a big fan of remakes but I think this movie could get a proper overhaul by a reputable director. Overall I thought this was a decent film and a rarely-seen gem from the 70’s.

Verdict: 3 Soul Claps

Recently I thought to myself *Self, why are you so hard on the sista's footwear choices when the fellas wear just as much ugly shit as we do*. I then thought about what could possibly be the ugliest shoe a man could wear, I didn't have to think too hard. This shit is a disgrace. I've never been fond of genuine reptile shoes but this is out of control. Created exclusively for the brotha who wants to act out his Bishop Magic Juan fantasy. No man should be wearing pink or green shoes for any reason. This phenomenon is especially bad here in the Midwest (Stand up and respresent Chi-town, Detroit, Indianapolis, Cleveland playas). If I walk into a club and see one dude rocking a pair of these, I know that ain't the place I need to be..time to go home. These shoes fuck up my non-drug induced high.

PS: Pimping I don't care how much you paid for them..they still ugly!

FRIDAY FLASHBACK JAM: Dinner For Two-Michael Cooper 1987

Not sure what the concept of this shoe is. It's a little bit sexy and a little bit Granny-fied. The jewled-snake ankle wrap is certainly not the business. Perfect shoe for Grandma to wear for her interlude with the nursing home's resident geriatric gigolo. The pale pink color will complement her sponge rollers nicely. This is just plain tacky ladies, please avoid at all costs.
