UK FILM: 4.3.2.1 POSTER – A LESSON LEARNED!

Last week the official poster for the up and coming Noel Clarke film 4.3.2.1 debuted online, which I later featured on Mad News. I also asked Noel a question regarding the poster which surprisingly didn’t seem to go down too well. He didn’t take to kindly to being questioned about the decision to feature one actress on the poster, clad only in underwear. Click here to read the post/subsequent heated debate if you missed it. Since then I have received emails from his supporters criticizing me for “calling Noel out like that” (erm all I []

UK NEWS: FORMER BNP MEMBER FALLS FOR JAMAICAN COLLEAGUE

This has got to be the funniest article I’ve read so far this year! Ha ha ha ha ha! Via The Daily Mirror Pete’s story If someone had said to me in the 80s that I’d marry a black woman, I’d have said “Never in a million years!” You see, I dread to think how many years I’d been active with the BNP. I was in my late teens when it all started. Growing up I didn’t really have black friends or []

VIDEO: ROBIN THICKE FT ESTELLE – ROLLACOASTA

Robin Thicke teams up with rapper/singer Estelle on his new single ‘Rollacoasta’. I thought I would hate this track. “An Estelle and Robin Thicke duet? It’s bound to be dire’”. But ‘Rollacoasta’ is catchy and a grower. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

With just two months to go before the General Election, photographer Alison Jackson hits the road in a desperate bid to find a stable of political lookalikes.

Her whistle-stop tour of the country takes her to locations significant in each politician’s political journey. For example: the industrial Scottish town of Kircaldy for Brown;  the fishing port of Hartlepool and the night-clubs of Manchester for []

Actor/director/writer Noel Clarke will release his highly anticipated new film 4,3,2,1 in June 2010. Check out the poster below. Brown Eyez has asked this question and now I’m asking….
