THE TRUE MEANING OF BLACK FRIDAY

November 29, 2013

Tired of watching our most sacred of holidays devolve into crass commercialism?  If, like me, you’ve had your fill, please help bring back worship and meaning to the once hallowed Black Friday.  Rather than waste time and money purchasing more “stuff,” put the “holy” back in holiday by honoring a golden era in American Cinema.blaxploitationObviously, you’ll want to start your day with “Coffey,” then ease into “Black Shampoo,” (a film I actually had the pleasure of working on), followed by a pre-lunch screening of “Cleopatra Jones.”  After the midday meal, continue the celebration with “Black Caesar,” “Superfly,” and “Shaft.”  Post-dinner, cap off the night with “Black Belt Jones,””Badasssss,” and the denouement, “Blacula.”

It’s win-win.  You’ll avoid the crowds and feel a whole lot better about yourself as a person.

    I prefer dark meat for Thanksgiving, so this sounds like a good way to spend the next day. It also has enough testosterone to balance the estrogen in the malls!

    Thanks, but the Syfy Channel is having a James Bond marathon.
