After seeing our annual riot special splashed across the television screen this week, I have questions. Well maybe not questions, but more so things I have noticed.   1.  We love to throw the word “thug” around when it deals with Blacks acting “unruly” – The mayor of Baltimore called the rioters “thugs” in the […]

Pretty soon the parties will be brought indoors and you need to make sure that if you are offering drinks, you are well prepared. It is important that you not only have a variety of drinks, but you should also make sure you offer quality drinks. You don’t need to have every liquor that the […]

I thought long and hard about this installment of G.O.A.T.’s. I decided to go with a topic I know well…music. Now, I don’t play an instrument, or have formal music training…..but I can play a jukebox like nobody’s business! What I can tell you is that Marvin Gaye’s 1978 release, “Here, My Dear”…..is one of […]

Even though outside old man winter stubborn ass just won’t die, we still must prepare for the spring season. Because when the weather gets nice and the women get fine…., you know the one. After a good season of heavy materials such as wool and corduroy, your Cool is screaming for a switch up in […]

Okay UML fam…let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. We didn’t launch this blog solely to focus on pop culture, music, and the shiny things in life. After all, any true Mogul has figured out, or will, that in order to master this lifetime, it will require a balanced being, strong in Mind, Body, and Spirit.Here […]

I know, I know, the headline is cliche’, and the topic has been beaten into the ground, but the conversation continues to intrigue every woman I have ever met. Almost to the point of wondering if there is an answer that any woman will really accept, or truly consider for the purpose of enhancing their […]

What is Cool? Cool is the color blue. Cool is Miles, Billy D, Sinatra, and Clooney. Cool is being able to maintain your composure at the height of happiness or in the face of danger. Cool was carried to America through African slaves as a way to keep their dignity while living in the armpit […]

And just like that Kendrick Lamar is back ladies and gentlemen. Sometime during the black night of Sunday Kendrick dropped his new album To Pimp A Butterfly. I awoke to my Twitter, Facebook, and the rooster telling me that the day that we were anticipating snuck up on us. What a good morning to be a hip […]

Cats be lost as hell when it comes to style and fashion. First understand that style is classic, fashion is temporary. So when you base your style off of fashion you risk looking like yesterday before you even step out of the house. That would be a no-no. But the problem lies in the fact […]

The other day I read that a “Different World” is coming to Netflix….. FINALLY! I was a surprised because with the recent allegations that Bill Cosby has experienced I assumed eventually everything with his name attached to it would catch stray shots; Fat Albert, Pudding Pops, ugly sweaters, and A Different World. However, I was happily […]

Kristi Capel, a news anchor in Ohio made a fumble on the mic. She fooled around and called the music that Lady Gaga makes as jigaboo music!! Yep Moguls….. JIGABOO music. Who still says jigaboo in 2015? I guess apparently the Kristi Capel family uses the word with ease. What’s next? Robin Thicke makes Sambo tunes? Or Sam Smith […]

We all have been there at one point or another; being in a situation where you don’t have much to say to a person but you want to pass the time with something other than silence. So what do you talk about? Politics? Nope. Religion? Hell no! The Weather? If you want to look like […]

I’m tired of slave movies Moguls. Good old fashion slave tales from down yonder just don’t cut it anymore for me. I’ve read books. I’ve listened to speeches. I played Fredrick Douglass for an elementary school play. I saw Roots. I saw Roots: The Next Generation. I watched Amistad. I peeped The Autobiography of Miss Jane […]

Sunday night while most of my friends watched the NBA All-Star Game, I decided to watch Saturday Night Live. Why? Because it marked the return of Eddie Murphy who didn’t grace that stage since December 1984. A long, long time ago. So I sat there and waited and waited and waited, and finally Chris Rock […]

Thing I have learned this week…… The Surprise Album Drop Is No Longer A Surprise – Last night Drake dropped a surprise album and by the time the morning came very few people were surprised. I think the reason being is that upon first listen the shit is boring. It reminds me of the music […]

These people have been blowing up your Facebook feed for years. They have been annoying, entertaining, pitiful, and out right embarrassing. You know what or how they are going to post before you even read it. And they exert all vestiges of their energy to popularise their content, because they know TheMarketingHeaven.com are real pros […]

  I think the year was 1993 or perhaps 1994, yeah I think it was the Summer of 1994. My guy Cool V told me about a friend of his who was selling a 1987 Grand Prix, 2-Door. One of the burgundy joints, with the matching burgundy interior and a wine colored sunroof. I could […]

Life is all about trying new things. Why? Because the worse that can happen is that whatever you try is not that good. But on the flip side, you may fool around and expand some shit, like your mind, taste, hobbies, likes, pleasures, vices, style, whatever. This post is not about the good that comes […]

So last weekend I took the family to go check out Selma, and to my surprise the theatre was packed. This was a good thing, but surprising none the less. Usually African American historical movies lose steam after the first week. However, this film seems to be doing the opposite and is getting momentum as time progress. […]

So you saying you need something to do when you get off of work tonight because um… well you don’t want to go home and all. And errrr…… you want to chill in a #ClassiclyCool spot and meet #ClassiclyCool people. Don’t worry, UML has you covered. Come on down to the Brenner Brewing Company for a little […]

Your Bachelor Pad by Allen Thompson Yes, the term “bachelor pad” may be a little dated, but the concept is still the same. You’re a single guy. You live by yourself, or maybe you have roommates. No matter. The place where you stay is your bachelor pad and eventually, if you’re lucky, a woman or […]
