Early thoughts about 2006 – 12.7.2006.1

By Michael Vass | December 7, 2006

Here we are at the end of 2006. What a year it has been. Beyond the usual celebrity hook-ups and break-ups there have been events that have caught the attention for a moment and there have been those that have had an impact. Black Entertainment USA has captured some of those moments, I hope. I know that it has caught tens of thousands of visitors attention, and for that I am very thankful. Personally it has been a year of challenges growth and potential. I suppose in a way the site reflects me directly on a level beyond my writing.

So far this year I have spoken about television commercials, rappers, theatrical movies, world cup soccer, cable television and broadcast television programs, efforts by celebrities to support causes, reviews of books and movies, comments on entertainers and being a watchdog of the media to name just a few things. 2006 has marked the passing of several memorable figures and the birth of a couple of very popular new celebrities-to-be. There have been losses of life that should never have happened and the continuation of conflicts that seem to have no end. At several points the year has been marked by absolute idiocy, in my opinion, and many times there have been events that the word odd seems to barely describe.

Through all these events many of you, my readers, have stuck around to hear my perhaps opinionated and overly-sensitive comments on it all. That has been one of the best things to happen for me all year. Because of you, I have been able to launch www.mvass.com (formerly http:vasandtheworld.blogspot.com) and create M V Consulting, Inc. In addition I have been able to create the www.cafepress.com/nova68 online store which features some of my poetry and various sayings. If success is measured by the things we are able to attempt, I have had enormous success this year. I am no fool, I know that it is due to your interest and not my ability alone.

I have tried to highlight the events and celebrities that have made a difference this year. Some have been positive like Ice cube (FX television shows and quality TV), Dave Chappelle (What Dave Chappelle and James Lipton gave me), Bill Cosby (Musings based on Mr. Bill Cosby’s words), and several others. Some have been horrendous like Mel Gibson (Mel Gibson, strip poker, MTV and Harold Scott), Michael Richards (Michael Richards – 11.21.2006.2), and others. Yet more have just been cotroversial like Madonna, OJ Simpson, Snoop Dogg, and Michael J. Fox. In all I have tried to cover the items of impact. I think I’ve done well for just one man.
