Tareau’s Three Tunes Tuesdays #3

En Vogue Don’t Let Go

https://youtu.be/mwhwGmoYv1s
Man remember when buying the CDs to your favorite movie? Yes buying the soundtrack. I loved the 1996 movie Set It Off. En Vogue was my favorite Woman’s R&B group in the 90s. That passion though? Hahahaha.

Fabolous ft Jazzy Real One

https://youtu.be/CGtx-bHW_sY

This song is dope. It samples The Fugees “Killing Me Softly” which samples Roberta Flack’s “Killing Me Softly” Rap is always sampling something, right? But I love this jam because it’s paying homage. This is off of Fabolous’s Summertime Shootouts album.

50 Cent Best Friend

https://youtu.be/5RSB20yLNfI

Something about soundtracks today. I like this version without Olivia. Back when 50 cent had everything on lock. 2005. “If I’m focused when I’m stroking, I can change how you walk.” Hahaha best line.

Tareau’s Three Tunes Tuedays #2

Well thank you for looking at my 1st music post last week. I got a good response so let’s do it again.

Alessia Cara “Here” 

https://youtu.be/UKp2CrfmVfw
Lmfao yes! I love this song. When I was a tour bus driver, my co workers daughter would always sing this song. I had no idea what she was singing about but I loved the story. About a teenage girl who gets dragged to a party by her friends. She clearly did not want to be at said party. Hahahaha. She was singing her lil ass off tho. 

The Jackson 5 “Ready Or Not”

https://youtu.be/7YUE1F1Is1w

Off of their 3rd Album entitled “Third Album” I think this would be my favorite Jackson 5 song ever. With the utmost respect to the Delfonics, I really liked the Jackson 5 version better. 

The Stylistics “One Night Affair” 

https://youtu.be/Qm4eEajalDM

Off of the hard to find “Love Spell” album, this song says it all. We’ve all been there. Men and Women alike. Man they were so soulful. 

https://youtu.be/q-qg2Q_zxFQ
 As a bonus song the rap group “Little Brother” sampled this song for their hit song “Lovin It” off of their album called “The Minstrel Show” 

Well here you are folks. Hopefully this will get you through, what feels like Monday Jr. Tuesday. Hahaha. Thank You 

Tareau’s Three Tunes Tuesdays

Ok, I figure I share with you good folks some music from my library every Tuesday. I will be selecting 3 songs. Seeing that I listen to a wide variety of music. Meet me in the comments to discuss.

Marsha Ambrosius “Stronger”

The beautifully gifted singer had T-Money’s blessing to redo Sade’s “Love Is Stronger Than Pride” off of Sade’s Stronger Than Pride album, which was released in 1988. You can find Marsha’s version off her 2014 album Friends & Lovers. 

https://youtu.be/LmTZPnEilfU

Ann Peebles “Trouble Heartaches and Sadness” 

I remember always listening to this song every time my Uncle Renaldo would take me out for one of our crazy adventures. It was always playing in the speakers outside where he hung out at. This song is off of Ann’s Straight from the heart album. I love the pain on her voice. 

https://youtu.be/Khcwl0duFqE

Link “I really wanna sex your body” 

Man y’all remember Link? The 69 song called “Whatcha gonna do”? This song right here though? Man oh man. Hahahaha don’t hurt em Young Tareau. I had to bring it out of retirement. A lot of people do not remember, so it’s my pleasure to take it back. Link also wrote “My Body” by L.S.G. You can find this song on Link’s debut album called Sex Down.

Well I hope You enjoyed my 3 songs. Check back eveey Tuesday for

Movie Review #21: Logan 

Yea I snuck in some good ole fashioned Skittles and was waiting for this. Man oh man. If you’re a Marvel Comics fan and an action movie fan, you MUST see this movie. Let’s get into it. 

Hugh Jackman is Logan aka Wolverine  (duh) and the Year is 2039. Logan’s healing factor is failing him and with all the X-Men and mutants dead, Logan has relocated Professor X (Patrick Stewart) to Mexico. Logan has no money, so he works as a Limo driver. When he makes money he buys prescription pills for Professor X through a doctor he meets outside of a hospital. The world has declared Professor X’s mind legally dangerous, so that is why Logan has him in hiding. Professor X is losing his mind without his meds and he tells Logan that there are still mutants in the world to be found. Logan does not believe him however. The movie starts off with a lot of blood and violence and I couldn’t be happier as a Marvel Comics fan. Finally they let Wolverine loose. I know with the success of Deadpool, the writers realize that it’s okay for superheroes to curse, have sex, drink, do drugs etc. Because quite honestly, little kids aren’t really looking up to superheroes like they did in my day. 

Anywho, Logan is approached by a lady multiple times. Her name is Gabriella (Elizabeth Rodriguez). Logan is annoyed at Gabriella’s persistance so she agrees to pay him $20k if he can help her. She needs Logan to ensure safe passage to her daughter Laura aka X23  (Dafne Keen) to North Dakota. Logan is unaware that Laura is a mutant and he assumes that this will be an easy $20k so he agrees. 

Once Logan tells Professor X of this, The Professor tells Logan that the Laura is much like him. Now the reason why Laura needs to get to safe passage is because, Zander Rice (Richard Grant) is hot on their heels. Zander is experimenting on little kids in Mexico, much like the Weapon X program. Zander hires the Reavers and their leader is Donald Pierce (Boyd Holbrook). The Reavers are half human/half cyborg. 

Now picture Wolverine as a Little girl, but she has retractable claws from her Hands and Feet. She is a lil savage and she does not fuck around. Elise Neal & Eriq LaSalle havr a small part in this film. This movie is very long but worth it. I am not going to tell you more, you will have to see what happens. I give this movie an A-. I would give it a plus but once you watch it, I could tell you my reasoning. 

Movie Review #20: John Wick Chapter 2

Sigh. Well No coupons. No snacks. Arrrrgggghhhh. Anyways this movie was terrible. I mean really bad. Like I fell asleep bad. And the movie critics love this movie. 

Keanu Reeves plays John Wick, an Ex-Hitman who is allegedly out of the game. That is until he receives a blood oath coin from the organization. The head of this organization is an Italian Mafia boss named Santino D’Antoni  (Riccardo Scamarcio). Wick must perform a kill unless due to the rules of the organizations rules. The target? Gianni D’Antoni  (Claudia Gerini). Yes the sister of Santino. 

This movie is not worth doing a full review on. Reeves is slow, out of shape, fat, and ill timed. His acting is terrible and he keeps doing the same arm bar to take down the bad guys over and over. What kind of a hitman is loud? He can’t run, he’s incompetent, he has no personality nor screen presence at all. It’s like that Dave Chappelle skit where he’s making fun of the Matrix. And Keanu Reeves is clueless saying “Dude you totally got me.” Even Laurence Fishburne appearance couldn’t save this. 

Please this isn’t worth watching on an airplane, bootleg, stream, tv, HBO, DVD, vhs, betamax do not watch it. You’d be better off snuggling with Ron Jeremy. Hahahahhahahaah

I give this movie an F-

REBLOG: The Hidden Messages of the movie Get Out

REBLOG from eddiestarblog@wordpress.com

Two men walk into two separate movie theaters to see the same movie, and come out seeing two different things. This shows you how incredible Jordan Peele’s new masterpiece film ‘Get Out’ is. Me and Tareau of the couch sports sat down to have a long deep conversation about the nuance and innuendo in that film. From a historical standpoint, I drop some knowledge on the importance of certain scenes, and Tareau attacks every scene from a deeply intellectual standpoint. Me and Tareau absolutely slaughter this review, and this review is a classic for the ages. You do not want to miss the depth of this movie review. Its long as hell, but worth every minute if you’ve watched the film and need some perspective.


Warning ⚠ This review is completely filled with spoilers, we will ruin your hopes of not knowing what the film plot is. Do not watch if you’ve haven’t seen the film ‘Get Out’. If you simply have no interest of patronizing this film, then have at it. 

The Hidden Messages of ‘Get Out’ – http://wp.me/p6QVT9-TA

Sexually Swindled #1

Warning, the following series contain Adult content. It will make you uncomfortable to talk about. Please skip this article if you do not want to be uncomfortable.

Sexually Swindled is the ultimate level of deception. Misleading the proverbial sheep to make them eat out of your hands. It is how the powers to be enabled their will upon the masses, without lifting a finger. It is to pacify you as a human. To train you not to ruffle feathers and for you to believe everything you see or say. To accept things that are morally and ethically wrong. To ignore said superstar and keep buying their product no matter how heinous their crime is.

Ok now that you know what my meaning of this is, I would like to talk about something that is very uncomfortable to talk about in most platforms. Rape and Pedophilia. We as a society have been trained to accept this culture. We see laws changing to discourage victims. We see certain publications choosing not to acknowledge nor cover certain individuals who do these heinous things. We see back logs of rape kits not being processed and handled correctly. We see law enforcement handle these cases without professional discretion nor decorum. We also see all kinds of excuses for the alleged perpetrator. Before we talk more about this, I would like to go back to something years ago in my life.

The year was 1992. I was 9 years old and one of the R & B groups who was just starting to blow was the group called Immature. I thought they were hella cool because all the girls loved them. They would be shirtless and where backwards hats and sometimes just their boxers. At the time I thought that was cool. I’ll never forget what my mama said. “Tareau, them boys are getting molested. What kind of parents would let their lil boys be running around with just they draws on? Put same god dam clothes on boy.” http://theboombox.com/raz-b-confronts-marques-houston-about-child-sex-abuse/immature Now fast forward to 2010 and a former member of the group B2K Raz-B said he and his brother was molested by the founder of both Immature and B2K Chris Stokes. Chris Stokes would go on to refute these allegations. Hmmmm. Check out this link here. http://www.timesocket.com/celebrities/chris-stokes-confesses-to-child-molesting-of-b2k-and-marques-houston/. So here you have former members of both Immature and B2k saying that members of both groups and their manager molested them, all while no criminal proceedings happening. Mind you Omarion and Marques Houston are both brothers and have both lived lucrative careers. HMMMMMMM. But not really a peep from all the m

ajor publications. Even after admitting to doing the disgusting crime. Nothing.

Chris Stokes isn’t the 1st nor the last person to rape or molest someone. The point of this serious is to acknowledge how the major media spins so many stories. From Michael Jackson, To Roman Polanski, To Woody Allen, To CeeLo Green, To R. Kelly. None of these celebrities have done any jail time, and was able to live a successful career after these scandals. Hell one of the children that Michael Jackson slept with, is blaming other parents for putting Michael Jackson in that position. SMDH. Its right here. http://radaronline.com/celebrity-news/michael-jackson-secret-lover-shana-mangatal-reveals-inside-molestation-scandal/. One of the reasons I am so hell-bent on talking about this subject, we as a people have a duty to others who can not protect themselves. Wrong is wrong no matter what your net worth is, race, political affiliation, gender etc. We are way over due on a morality check regarding this topic. Why is it taboo? So if I say “I don’t like Michael Jackson because he molested little kids!” Something is wrong with me? Really. Well with a mentality that differs from mine, that is why we have these issues. That is why special needs kids are easy targets. That is why we are afraid of sending our children to camps. That is why we do not want our kids on social media. That is why we see so many children on “WHOLESOME” shows dreesing twice their age. Why would sa 10 year old girl want to feel sexy in a tube top? Thats for later on in life. But these dam shoes push these kids as sexual beings. Let them be kids. Why do you think you see a big rebellious “FUCK YOU” once these disney and nickelodeon stars turn 18? (We will touch that briefly later on in this article)

This culture exists because we either allow it or we are too cowardly to talk about it. I mention on a previous article here on thecouchsports.com talking about America’s Rape culture. It was around the time of the Brock Turner sentencing. I too, as a father and a man was disgusted by not only the outcome, but the strong support for Brock. And we wonder why Donald Trump is president? (Boys will be boys, only for athletes or white guys does that apply too). Not talking about Trump’s 2005 comments about PUSSY GRABBING but what about the Rape allegations?? http://www.esquire.com/news-politics/news/a50256/trump-child-rape-accuser-cancels-press-conference/ remember this lady said she was 13 when Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein raped her. Not convinced? ok what about the dozens of Nickelodeon and Disney execs, who get caught molesting children? Not a peep, right? https://www.bing.com/search?q=disney+exec+child+molestation&form=EDGEAR&qs=PF&cvid=99167151a9b94e14bfc23828f3041590&pq=disney+exec+child+molestation&cc=US&setlang=en-US.  Hell what about former Phoenix Suns star Kevin Johnson? Shit, he climbed into a bed , butt naked with a then 16-year-old girl and now he’s the Mayor of Sacramento. http://www.brightsideofthesun.com/2015/9/27/9399819/kevin-johnsons-accuser-speaks-after-20-years-of-silence. I remember when this story broke on sbnation.com and it only had 26 comments. 26 comments and I think 1,000 views. The next article was about Steph Curry’s quick release on his shot and it had tens of thousands of views and hundreds of comments. Based off of that one scenario, one would argue that people do not care about these tragic things because they’re not affected by it. Out of sight, out of mind. But rape, sexual assault, molestation, and pedophilia affects everybody. I can’t stress this enough. Is it guilt or shame that prevents us from talking about this? Is it guilt by association? By that logic, America idolized Adolf Hitler prior to WW2. TIME Magazine’s man of the year in 1938 hitler. So how come people cant say “You know I made a mistake watching this film or listening to this artist”? We need to change. No more excuses. No more beating around the bush. No more delaying things. Because just imagine your child in these horrid situations. Now imagine it’s you. Now imagine the guilt or shame you would have because you refused to talk about these things.

Now Imagine being sexually swindled into ignoring everything I just said!!!
