Vietnow 5 - The Hebrew Hammer stars Adam Goldberg, Judy Greer, Andy Dick, Mario Van Peebles, and Peter Coyote. The plot concerns a Jewish superhero known as The Hebrew Hammer who must save Hanukkah from the evil son of Santa Claus who wants to destroy Hanukkah and make everyone celebrate Christmas, and eat fruit. The film is set up as a parody of blaxploitation films such as: Full Metal Jacket. Director Jonathan Kesselman has jokingly dubbed it the first "Jewsploitation". But is it much more than that! The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and appeared at several other film festivals, Jewish and otherwise, during 2003. This version of the movie was edited for television: all profanities were bleeped, and some scenes were cut. The DVD, will be released, and contains the uncut version, which is rated R.

It's no secret that Rachel McDonald a/k/a "The Quick Hotness" can sing. But her latest video, "Return of Soul" gives Ms. McDonald a 5-minute opportunity to show off her acting talents as well. Looking like a short version of a 70's era blaxploitation film, the video features McDonald, director Biblical Jones, and a cast of characters acting out a Kung Fu themed intro. As the music plays, scenes coincide with the lyrics taking us back to a time when humankind was much...well, kinder and soul music was society's soundtrack. Winding up with a visual and vocal tribute to the long-running music show ‘Soul Train,' Rachel McDonald's video is just as captivating as the artist herself.

Black Dynamite interview with Michael Jai White and Arsenio Hall on BlackTree TV SYNOPSIS When The Man murders his brother, pumps heroin into local orphanages, and floods the ghetto with adulterated malt liquor, BLACK DYNAMITE is the one hero willing to fight all the way from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House. Michael Jai White (The Dark Knight) stars as BLACK DYNAMITE, a gun-toting, nunchuck-wielding, ladies man and soul brother. Written and directed by Scott Sanders (Thick as Thieves), BLACK DYNAMITE also stars Tommy Davidson, Nicole Sullivan, Bokeem Woodbine, Arsenio Hall and John Salley. LONG SYNOPSIS Black Dynamite is the baddest cat to ever hit town. He puts his finger in the ground and turns the whole word around. This ex-CIA commando rules the streets with a 44-Magnum in one hand and nunchucks in the other. With his soul brother brand of Kung Fu, he strikes fear into the hearts of suckers and chumps on both sides of the law, and with his super cool style, keeps the ladies begging for more. When Black Dynamites brother Jimmy is mysteriously killed, the CIA calls Black Dynamite back into action. Tracing a bullet casing left at the scene of the crime, Black Dynamite finds himself battling pool hall thugs, pimps, pushers, and monsters. In the process of solving his brothers murder, Black Dynamite uncovers a bigger plan by The Man to pump dope into the local orphanages and flood the ghetto with malt liquor adulterated to weaken the Black Mans most fundamental power source. Upon meeting and romancing the beautiful, socially-minded orphan activist Gloria, Black Dynamite decides to clean up the streets, declaring war on the scourges of the ghetto. Flanked by a team of militants, including his trusted friend Bullhorn, a rhyme-talking club-owner, and the smooth talking hustler Cream Corn, Black Dynamite takes his crusade from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House MICHAEL JAI WHITE/ WRITER/BLACK DYNAMITE Michael Jai White first garnered audience and critical attention with his portrayal of controversial boxing giant Mike Tyson in the HBO special, Tyson. With more than two decades years of experience as a martial artist, he holds a black belt in six Karate styles and over 26 titles, including U.S. Open, North American Open, and New England Grand Champion. His well-honed skills have been employed to choreograph complex stunts in films such as On Deadly Ground. In addition to Tyson, his feature credits include Spawn, in which he played the title character based on the Todd McFarlane comic books, 2 Days in the Valley, Breakfast of Champions with Bruce Willis, Thick As Thieves with Alec Baldwin, Universal Solder: The Return with Jean Claude Van Damme, Exit Wounds with Steven Seagal and Quentin Tarantinos Kill Bill. Television credits include the NBC movie Mutiny, based on factual events during World War II in which he played the lead character. The film was directed by Kevin Hooks and produced by Morgan Freeman. He also appeared in the TNT original movie Freedom Song, starring and executive produced by Danny Glover; the short lived NBC drama Wonderland; and episodes of NYBD Blue, JAG, Living Single, and Renegade. Most recently, White has starred in Undisputed 2, The Dark Knight, the box office smash Tyler Perrys Why Did I Get Married, and the upcoming Black Dynamite, which Michael wrote, and co-produced. White was born in Brooklyn and as a pre-teen was relocated to Bridgeport, Connecticut. At age 14, he was mostly on his own; and at six feet tall and weighing in at 190 lbs, he was easily mistaken for an adult. Having started karate lessons at age eight, he was a black belt by age 12, and later taught karate at the local YMCA in Bridgeport. He graduated high school with honors and went on to college without a clear idea of the direction he wanted to steer his life. He jumped from university to university and major to major (political science, communications, engineering) while also squeezing in an acting class or two—at the HB Studios in NY, Yale University, and Howard University but never had considered acting as a career choice. White discovered he had a gift for reaching troubled children when he taught grades five, six, and seven at a junior high school for three years. That experience is what he says is his proudest achievement. Though reluctant to follow acting, he felt he had to get it out of his system. He began auditioning for roles in nearby Manhattan. He eventually landed commercials, theater roles, and bit parts on soap operas. Faced with the difficult decision to leave teaching, he finally did so with the blessing of his students. In 1992 he moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting. *******

Isaac Lee Hayes, Jr. (August 20, 1942 -- August 10, 2008)[1] was an American soul and funk singer-songwriter, musician, record producer, arranger, composer and actor. Hayes was one of the main creative forces behind southern soul music label Stax Records, where he served as both an in-house songwriter and producer with partner David Porter during the mid-1960s. In the late 1960s, Hayes became a recording artist, and recorded successful soul albums such as Hot Buttered Soul (1969) and Black Moses (1971) as the Stax label's premier artist. Alongside his work in popular music, Hayes was a film score composer for motion pictures. His best known work, for the 1971 blaxploitation film Shaft, earned Hayes an Academy Award for Best Original Song (the first Academy Award received by an African-American in a non-acting category) and two Grammy Awards. He received a third Grammy for the album Black Moses. In 1992, in recognition of his humanitarian work, he was crowned an honorary king of Ghana's Ada district. From 1997 to 2006, he provided the voice for the character "Chef" on the Comedy Central animated TV series South Park. Hayes was found dead in his Memphis home on August 10, 2008 as reported by the Shelby County sheriff's department. His death came 10 days before his 66th birthday.[1] [2]Here is a complete slo-mo video clip of Isaac Hayes conducting the Theme from Shaft, which won an Oscar for best song.

This October, we're going to see something I thought we would never see again-- the return of blaxploitation. No, really, I thought this was gone forever. Even after the Shaft remake, I figured it was gone for good. Called a spoof in the best tradition of Airplane, Black Dynamite features the film's writer, Michael Jai White, as the title character in pursuit of The Man. The Man, an amorphous local figure who not only killed Black Dynamite's brother, but also ran heroin through orphanages, and tainted malt liquor throughout the ghetto. Now, Black Dynamite's got a chance for both revenge and justice, as he pursues The Man all the way to a climactic final battle. Check out the trailer. Racist? Sexist? Both? Or just good old fashioned parody romp? Who's going to be laughing when this one comes out, and who's going to be filing lawsuits? Hit the comments section below to talk about this controversial new title, and thanks for watching. Black Dynamite Cast: Miguel Núñez, Obba Babatunde, Kevin Chapman, Tommy Davidson, Richard Edson, Arsenio Hall, Darrel Heath, Buddy Lewis, Brian McKnight, Byron Minns, James McManus, Phil Morris, Miguel Nunez, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Tucker Smallwood, John Salley, Chris Spencer, Mike Starr, Nicole Sullivan, Kym Whitley, Mykelti Williamson, Bokeem Woodbine, Cedric Yarbrough, Roger Yuan Black Dynamite movie trailer courtesy Destination Films.

Instead of the original audio track in the film, I've RE-MIXED it a bit, substituting the other, more orchestrated, version of the superb Bobby Womack song on the audio track, just to see hear it would work instead. And man, it DOES work -- albeit now minus some of those funky rough 70's edges of the original version with the congas, which does give it that great 70s blaxplotation" vibe. Ive got both versions up here so you can compare, the original and my re-mixed one. See what you think; Tarantino used this version of the song in "Jackie Brown. Not once but twice (!) both in the opening credits with Pam Greer floating down the airport people mover, and again in the closing scene with Robert Foster. Both to very good effect. Again, more recently the same track was used in Micheal Manns "American Gangster. I hope you enjoy this - it seems very popular and I cant get over the number of hits it gets. More info: "Across 110th Street" (1972) is one of the better Blaxploitation Films of the 1970's. Has some great 70's vibe and feel especially of NYC and Harlem. "Across 110th Street", the song, is well written and beautifully sung in this version credited to "Bobby Womack and Peace". Bobby Womack's a truly gifted vocalist. Finally here are the VERY WONDERFUL SONG LYRICS: *******www.uulyrics****/music/bobby-womack/song-across-110th-street/ "Across 110th Street" ------------------------------ I was the third brother of five, Doing whatever I had to do to survive. I'm not saying what I did was alright, Trying to break out of the ghetto was a day to day fight. Been down so long, getting up didn't cross my mind, I knew there was a better way of life that I was just trying to find. You don't know what you'll do until you're put under pressure, Across 110th Street is a hell of a tester. Across 110th Street, Pimps trying to catch a woman that's weak Across 110th Street, Pushers won't let the junkie go free. Across 110th Street, Woman trying to catch a trick on the street. Across 110th Street, You can find it all in the street. I got one more thing I'd like to y'all about right now. Hey brother, there's a better way out. Snorting that coke, shooting that dope man you're copping out. Take my advice, it's either live or die. You've got to be strong, if you want to survive. The family on the other side of town, Would catch hell without a ghetto around. In every city you find the same thing going down, Harlem is the capital of every ghetto town. Across 110th Street, Pimps trying to catch a woman that's weak Across 110th Street, Pushers won't let the junkie go free. Across 110th Street, A woman trying to catch a trick on the street, ouh baby Across 110th Street, You can find it all in the street. Yes he can, oh Look around you, just look around you, Look around you, look around you, uh yeah (Great stuff huh?) -Jed

PLEASE NOTE: I divided my uploads between multiple channels, Bookmark this link in your browser for instant access to an index with links to all of John1948's oldies classics. LINK: *******tinyurl****/Channel-Index (born May 3, 1933, Barnwell, S.C., U.S.—died Dec. 25, 2006, Atlanta, Ga.) American singer, songwriter, arranger, and dancer, who was one of the most important and influential entertainers in 20th-century popular music and whose remarkable achievements earned him the sobriquet "the Hardest-Working Man in Show Business." Brown was raised mainly in Augusta, Ga., by his great-aunt, who took him in at about the age of five when his parents divorced. Growing up in the segregated South during the Great Depression of the 1930s, Brown was so impoverished that he was sent home from grade school for "insufficient clothes," an experience that he never forgot and that perhaps explains his penchant as an adult for wearing ermine coats, velour jumpsuits, elaborate capes, and conspicuous gold jewelry. Neighbours taught him how to play drums, piano, and guitar, and he learned about gospel music in churches and at tent revivals, where preachers would scream, yell, stomp their feet, and fall to their knees during sermons to provoke responses from the congregation. Brown sang for his classmates and competed in local talent shows but initially thought more about a career in baseball or boxing than in music. At age 15 Brown and some companions were arrested while breaking into cars. He was sentenced to 8 to 16 years of incarceration but was released after 3 years for good behaviour. While at the Alto Reform School, he formed a gospel group. Subsequently secularized and renamed the Flames (later the Famous Flames), it soon attracted the attention of rhythm-and-blues and rock-and-roll shouter Little Richard, whose manager helped promote the group. Intrigued by their demo record, Ralph Bass, the artists-and-repertoire man for the King label, brought the group to Cincinnati, Ohio, to record for King Records's subsidiary Federal. The label's owner, Syd Nathan, hated Brown's first recording, "Please, Please, Please" (1956), but the record eventually sold three million copies and launched Brown's extraordinary career. Along with placing nearly 100 singles and almost 50 albums on the best-seller charts, Brown broke new ground with two of the first successful "live and in concert" albums—his landmark Live at the Apollo (1963), which stayed on the charts for 66 weeks, and his 1964 follow-up, Pure Dynamite! Live at the Royal, which charted for 22 weeks. During the 1960s Brown was known as "Soul Brother Number One." His hit recordings of that decade have often been associated with the emergence of the black aesthetic and black nationalist movements, especially the songs "Say It Loud—I'm Black and I'm Proud" (1968), "Don't Be a Drop-Out" (1966), and "I Don't Want Nobody to Give Me Nothin' (Open Up the Door, I'll Get It Myself)" (1969). Politicians recruited him to help calm cities struck by civil insurrection and avidly courted his endorsement. In the 1970s Brown became "the Godfather of Soul," and his hit songs stimulated several dance crazes and were featured on the sound tracks of a number of "blaxploitation" films (sensational, low-budget, action-oriented motion pictures with African American protagonists). When hip-hop emerged as a viable commercial music in the 1980s, Brown's songs again assumed centre stage as hip-hop disc jockeys frequently incorporated samples (audio snippets) from his records. He also appeared in several motion pictures, including The Blues Brothers (1980) and Rocky IV (1985), and attained global status as a celebrity, especially in Africa, where his tours attracted enormous crowds and generated a broad range of new musical fusions. Yet Brown's life continued to be marked by difficulties, including the tragic death of his third wife, charges of drug use, and a period of imprisonment for a 1988 high-speed highway chase in which he tried to escape pursuing police officers. *******www.biography****/articles/James-Brown-9228350
