Idris Elba almost didn't live to see "Beasts of No Nation," after an accident on set put his life in danger.
"I nearly died," he confessed to British chat show host Jonathan Ross. "I was doing this scene - we decided to do this waterfall scene where all these child soldiers were walking behind this massive waterfall. Cary Fukunaga, the director, decided to shoot it for real. We went to this waterfall and in this scene my character is standing there watching all the child soldiers go past.
"Now in the setup of that, the stunt co-ordinator says, 'Listen everyone, this is a waterfall, that's a 90, 100 foot drop down there and the ground is very slippery, just be careful!' I put my foot on this rock just to hang out and chill out while they were setting up and as I'm doing that it's slippery, obviously. I slip... I put my hand on this tree - it's not a tree, it's a branch. It snaps and I go literally about six feet before I go bang over and I got caught by the security guy!"
Thankfully Idris made it through production in one piece and is thrilled with the finished result, although he admits it was one of the most harrowing films to shoot in his entire career.
To prepare for his role in the boxing drama "Creed," Michael B. Jordan ate nothing but grilled chicken, brown rice and steamed broccoli while working out six days a week. "It was brutal!" Michael B. Jordan says. "Half the time you're eating you're not even hungry. You don't even want to eat, you just know you have to put food in your body just to keep going. And you're pretty antisocial because that's your life.
Your alarm goes off and you're shoving food in your face and then you have to hit the gym." But even as he transformed his physique and performed all of his fight scenes himself, he keeps things in perspective. "I'm an actor, I am not a boxer," he says. "Not at all! It was very humbling to get in the ring with a real boxer. We had all professional fighters in our film, and I believe that helped me a lot, because they were quick to point out anything that was inauthentic. The way we approached it was that every punch was a line. Every fight was its own scene."

Future's needs are VERY specific when he's on the road ... in fact -- he's so specific -- even his doughnuts need to look a certain way. For starters, the rapper makes $150k for a 45 minute show. However, show promoters better have 4 bottles of Ace of Spades, Ciroc and Moet, among other drinks on hand to keep him happy. And get this -- when it comes to food -- Future's a poor man's Gordon Ramsay, demanding items like chicken fingers, cheddar popcorn and broccoli to keep him full.

Celebrity couple Ice-T and Coco Austin have welcomed the birth of a new baby girl named Chanel Nicole in New Jersey.
Susan Strack, the widow of Johanan Vigoda, sued Stevie Wonder for $7 million earlier this year (15), claiming she was entitled to six percent of royalties from his music as part of a contract he reportedly signed stipulating Vigoda's kin would receive the payments after his death.
Strack alleged Wonder attempted to have the clause amended years ago, but the dispute was never resolved before Vigoda died, and therefore she insisted the contract was still legally binding.
In September (15), the 65 year old launched a countersuit against Strack, claiming he did not agree to the provision and trusted Vigoda to leave it out of the legal papers because "he could not read any of the contracts that Vigoda negotiated and prepared" due to the fact that he is blind. Strack challenged Wonder's allegations, insisting her husband had recruited a witness to read out the contract in full to his client before allowing him to sign.
Last week, a judge dismissed Strack's lawsuit against Wonder.
If you don't live in Maine, New England, New Orleans or San Francisco, lobster rolls are few and far between. To correct this problem, a Maine company now sells lobster rolls via mail order (8 lobster rolls for $110). And the sandwiches are getting rave reviews (below). Despite the high price, they can barely keep up with the demand.
5 Star Reviews:
1. These lobster rolls were great! The lobster meat was flavorful with only a small amount of mayo to hold it together.. However, it was the bun that made the sandwich..
2. I ordered these to treat myself to something different and special. They were the best!! The meat was sweet and succulent. I could swear the rolls were baked fresh just the day before. I'm probably going to order these for myself one more time before I share with family and friends. Treat yourself! You deserve it!!!
Waygu short ribs are extremely popular and are priced at $49 dollars per pound but according to a source, you have to look long and hard to find waygu baby back ribs but they do exist and they're not cheap.
Japanese Wagyu (A5 Grade) meats are now accompanied by an "authenticity" certificate.
Wagyu Kobe cattle are free from hormones and antibiotics, and raised all-naturally with specific techniques to have an unmatched flavor and taste in the world.
Waygu hot dogs are priced at $50 for 4 lbs.
USDA Prime used to be the most sought after meat (before Waygu) and the price spread between Top Prime & Bottom Prime can easily excel 300% largely due to the deep pocket bidders in Japan which is where 80% of our top prime beef goes.
The remainder (here) goes to the most exclusive private steak houses which reserve it for special VIP's.
Despite all this, waygu still tops USDA Prime.

Is It True? That Dr. Dre and Ice Cube once planned to record an album in the 90's, titled: "NWE," -"N*ggaz Without Eazy?"
Before LL Cool J left Def Jam, he recorded 12 albums. 11 went platinum and 1 went gold. This makes him the most consistent selling rapper in history and he holds the record for selling the most consecutive platinum albums in a row (for a rapper).
Half of "Illmatic," was Nas's demo tape.
"I Got A Story To Tell," was allegedly based on a real life incident Biggie had when he was smashing a former NY Knicks girlfriend behind his back.

Ronnie is suing for damages and to get “Uncle Charlie” to cease interference. Ronnie claims The Gap Band already existed before Charlie joined anyway. At press time, there’s been no comment from “Uncle Charlie” yet.
A BLACK MAN WAS BEHIND THE AVIATION SUCCESS OF RACIST BILLIONAIRE:
It's a well known fact that billionaire Howard Hughes hated blacks with the exception of one man (Frank Mann). He tolerated Mann because he discreetly contributed to his aviation success.
Hughes kept Mann hidden and took this secret to the grave.
Frank Mann (November 22, 1908 - November 30, 1992) was drawn to aviation as a teenager at Houston's South Main Airport where he became acquainted with Howard Hughes; only because Hughes recognized his talent and planned to capitalize off it.
Mann secretly worked on the design for Hughes' "Spruce Goose," airplane.
Mann also provided upgraded equipment for the Tuskegee Airmen where he moonlighted as an chief civilian instructor.
Mann also developed an early communication satellite and the prototype for the Corvette, yes, a black man created the Corvette; a carefully guarded secret until now.
Hughes took credit for everything Mann created and didn't cut him in on the profits.
Frank Mann doesn't even have a wikipedia page listing his accomplishments. Instead, he's lost in history.
The fire that gutted Johnny Mathis' Hollywood Hills mansion a few weeks ago will probably be ruled accidental but according to a source, it may be suspicious in nature.
SHADOWY: (BLACK OPS OPERATIVE-WORKS EXCLUSIVELY FOR POTUS)
Allegedly, every US President has their own secret agent.
These men are referred to as "The President's Man," (a highly classified operative) that handles sensitive situations in regards to POTUS.
These black ops soldiers carry out missions that nobody else can do and they follow orders (directly) from the President of the United States.
Secrets will never be revealed (although there has been speculation that Gene Tatum, above, may leak Bush secrets) and these men are skilled in weapons, poisons, hand-to-hand combat, explosives and languages.
by: Gene Chip Tatum
Dois Gene "Chip" Tatum claims to have been a black ops assassin for George Bush who quit in 1992 after Bush ordered him to "neutralize" Ross Perot. He became active as a whistleblower in 1996 after being charged with treason, which the state blamed on a data error.
As of October 25, 2014, Aaron Wilson (global private intelligence insider-operative) revealed that Chip was leaving the USA and heading back down to South America where he has a farm and the mother of his child, after hearing from Chip directly. This however has not happened but is a projection of Chip's overall plan.
This is inline with the rumors of Jeb Bush running for President in 2016 and the threat of Chip spilling the beans on his past to interested competitors.
Having Chip off the playing field would be desirable, if Jeb does continue on this path towards continued Bush family dominance.
Tatum at times claims to have been given the code name Pegasus as a personal CIA code name, and at other times claims to have been recruited into a CIA unit whose code name was Pegasus.
[Tatum] believes Pegasus was established during the Eisenhower years as a secret group inside the CIA to spy on that agency on behalf of the President. At some point - believed to be after the assassination of President Kennedy - Pegasus went AWOL from direct US Government control and came under the direction of an international Board of Directors which Tatum alleges-included George Bush and Henry Kissinger.
Tatum revealed the existence of three OSGs. OSG-1 was headed by Ted Shackley and was "our anti-narcotics group". OSG-2 was the anti-terror group and OSG-3 was "our 'alignment' group". Tatum was originally posted to OSG-2 which was commanded by Col. Oliver North. The third group, OSG-3, was commanded by Richard Secord. Following the exposure of Oliver North's role in Contragate in 1987, North resigned as head of OSG-2 and his spot was taken over by Secord. Tatum moved up to command OSG-3 at the same time. OSG3 numbered around eighty people.
All three OSGs answered to those individuals who sat on the TIWG. General Colin Powell represented the Department of Defense; William Casey, the CIA; and Donald Gregg, the National Security Council. "FBI guys rotated in and out," Tatum says.
The directors of Pegasus meet once a year in secret conclave following G7 meetings. The group has "representation" from a number of intelligence agencies throughout the world. Included are the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) as well as agents from British, Israeli, Turkish and Danish Intelligence plus "others who performed various functions for Pegasus". The mission of Pegasus, Tatum explains, is "to 'align' world leaders and financiers to our [US] policies and standards."
From April 1986 until 1992, Tatum claims to have been active in an assassination program, code-named Pegasus, operating under the direct command of George Bush and Felix Rodriguez. Tatum claims to have killed:
Israeli Mossad agent Amiram Nir, also known as Pat Weber
Honduran General Gustavo Alvarez, former Honduran Army Chief of Staff, in 1989
Enrique Bermudez, founder of the Contras, in 1991
Tatum alleged that Alvarez and Bemudez built a number of cocaine processing plants known as "North Camps", as they were run by Oliver North.
Tatum alleges that other members of Pegasus killed:
Swedish Prime Minister Olaf Palme in 1986, using a South African assassin.
Overall, Tatum claims to have been involved with "eighteen covert and black operations around the world."
BLACK HOLLYWOOD: (LITTLE KNOWN INFORMATION)
Sisqo wanted to play the Taimak character in the remake of the "Last Dragon."
He's quoted as saying: "I'm the same complexion as Taimak and my hair is curly."
And most of my dance moves are kung-fu orientated. I would use my regular hair color (in the first half of the film) and then I would change it to blonde throughout the second half of the film.
And maybe Mya could play the Vanity role.
Financing for this film was not forthcoming.
UPDATE ON NOTORIOUS HARLEM GIGOLO:
Dickie Wells (pictured above) ran a hot Harlem nightspot.
Originally built as a bowling alley. The ground floor was home to a restaurant in the 1920s and '30s.
On 18 October 1923, local Harlem entrepreneurs Mal Frazier and John Carey opened The Nest (1923–32) in the basement. Fights and shootings gave the club a “Chicago gangland” feel that only enhanced its reputation.
The well-known dancer and gigolo Dickie Wells (1907–49) ran the club from 1932 to 1942. [Note: he is not to be confused with the famed trombonist who worked with Fletcher Henderson, Benny Carter and Count Basie.] Wells fame as a womanizer was widespread. His club was patronized by the likes of Tallulah Bankhead, Errol Flynn, Ava Gardner, Joan Crawford, and Walter Winchell. Not only did Dickie provide his gigolo services to Tallulah Bankhead, allegedly, he also scored drugs for her and had a key to her home; he also had a key to Ava Gardner's home as well.
Wells' club was billed as "Harlem's Unusual Night Club" and featured the standard American and Chinese menus. A headliner was female impersonator "Gloria Swanson" (Walter Winston, 1907–40), who sang bawdy ballads attired in furs and fancy frocks. His star faded during Mayor LaGuardia's campaign to outlaw cross dressing in clubs in the late 1930s.
The building was destroyed in 2012.
According to dancer Honi Coles:
"You'd see all these chauffeured limousines out there, chauffeurs sitting up sleeping; they were for, say, people who'd been to Connie's Inn or the Cotton Club, downtown people. This would be at eight o'clock in the morning; kids would be going to school, and the chauffeurs would be waiting for these people to come out of the joints, like Dickie Wells or whatever.
Rich, rich people- celebrities, politicians, royalty, like the Duke of Windsor. Harlem was his hangout; he made all of the joints. Dickie Wells' spot was the most famous, and Dickie was probably the most popular man in Harlem. There was wonderful entertainment, stars from the big clubs like Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong, Ethel Waters and Duke Ellington.
BLACK GIGOLO SLEPT WITH WHITE ACTRESSES:
According to Bumpy Johnson's widow Mayme, "It's amazing to me that no one ever talks about Dickie Wells (not the trombone player) anymore because between the 1920's-1940's, he was one of the most well known people in the entire city and was nicknamed, "Mr. New York." He was an amazing man, Mr. Dickie Wells. Never been anyone like him."
"Dickie was a natural electrifying (self-taught) dancer who performed in a dance trio, he had a way of fixing his gaze on women while he danced, almost hypnotizing them. Dickie was also very handsome, like a black Clark Gable. He was also blessed with bedroom eyes. When most black men were making $25-$35 a week, Dickie was pulling down $500 per week performing at the Cotton Club.
"Dickie was the most suave and sophisticated man I've ever met, black or white and he was charming. Women loved him and would vie for his attention with their pocketbooks. They gave him money, jewels and cars. "
His conquests included numerous white actresses, including, Ava Gardner (center photo) and Tallulah Bankhead. Actually, Bankhead is said to have fainted when she heard he died."
One evening, Ava Gardner was so desperate and determined to see Dickie, she couldn't wait any longer, she went to his house and came face-to-face with his mother after she rang the doorbell. Dickie's mom (Carrie) didn't care that she was Ava Gardner and asked her what she wanted with her son as she looked her up and down with disdain. Rumor has it that Ava broke a heel running down those steps into her waiting limo.
White actors even competed with Dickie for white women, and this was unheard of for a black man in the 20's and 30's but Clark Gable, Errol Flynn, James Cagney and Charlie Chaplin were all in competition with Dickie and they often lost despite their white movie star status."
"The only time this notorious gigolo ever got bad press was when the daughter of a Swedish diplomat had a nervous breakdown because Dickie was no longer paying attention to her and she revealed that she had abandoned her children to be with him."
"Many of his white female conquests would tell him that they didn't believe he was really all black and that he looked Cuban because of his light complexion and wavy hair. Dickie always told them, "I am a black man, nothing else."
According to Mayme, "The thing that made Dickie really special as far as I was concerned, was that he never ever took a dime from a black woman. He would siphon every dollar he could from white women who were willing to pay for his affections and then come uptown to Harlem and spend his money partying with the most beautiful black women of the day, including Margherite Chapman (who later married Willie Mays) and Jean Parks (sister of the founder of Parks sausage). Dickie often lavished money on them and also bought them expensive dinners and took them shopping.They were two of his favorite hang-out partners but he was also a favorite of black female mob boss Madame Stephanie St. Clair. When St. Clair asked him to donate money to buy guns and supplies to support the coming numbers war with white mobster Dutch Schultz, Dickie didn't blink a eye."
"Dickie used some of his gigolo fortune to buy his mother, Carrie, a brownstone on Strivers Row-one of the most elite neighborhoods in Harlem. He moved into the basement apartment and lived there until his death."
Just in time for the holiday shopping season, astronomers snagged a two-for-one deal on mysterious blasts of radio waves from other galaxies. An unprecedented double burst recently showed up along with four more of these flashes, researchers report online November 25 at arXiv.org.
Fast radio bursts, first detected in 2007, are bright blasts of radio energy that last for just a few milliseconds and are never seen again (SN: 8/9/14, p. 22). Until now, astronomers had cataloged nine bursts that appeared to originate well outside the Milky Way. Yet, follow-up searches with nonradio telescopes for anything that might be pulsing or exploding keep coming up empty (SN Online: 12/8/14).
The five newcomers, detected at the Parkes radio telescope in Australia, follow the same pattern as all previous detected bursts with one exception — one flashed twice. Twin blasts separated by just 2.4 milliseconds came out of some sort of eruption that happened roughly 9 billion years ago in the constellation Octans, David Champion, an astronomer at the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, and colleagues report.
A double flash rules out some ideas about what causes fast radio bursts. For instance, two neutron stars, dense cores left behind by dead massive stars, can collide only once. Rare vigorous blasts from pulsars might fit the bill, as would hyperflares from haphazard sources of gamma rays and X-rays known as “soft gamma repeaters,” possibly triggered by starquakes on highly magnetic neutron stars.
BLACK HISTORY TIDBITS:
1863 REBECCA HUGER, 11 yrs old, a Slave in Her Fathers House. In appearance she is white. No trace of Negro blood. Her Grandmother & Mother Lived in New Orleans and were MULATTO'S.
Benjamin T. Montgomery, a former slave, bought the plantations of Confederate President Jefferson Davis at the end of the Civil War, and became one of the biggest cotton planters in Mississippi.
Born in Brownsville, Tenn., in 1871, the son of slaves, Dr. Miles V. Lynk attended the historically Black Meharry Medical College in Nashville and became the first African-American doctor to practice in Madison County, Tenn. At the age of 21, he established The Medical and Surgical Observer, the first national medical journal for Black physicians. Dr. Lynk died in Memphis in 1957.
Dr. Alexa Canady became the first African-American woman neurosurgeon in the United States in 1981. From 1987 to 2001, Canady was chief of neurosurgery at Children's Hospital of Michigan. In 1970, less than 10 percent of all medical students were women. By 1975, that number had jumped to just over 20 percent. Women now make up nearly half of all medical students.
NOSTALGIA: (STORY BEHIND THE SONG)
Someday We'll Be Together Again:
"Someday We'll Be Together" is a song written by Johnny Bristol, Jackey Beavers, and Harvey Fuqua and made popular as the last of twelve American number-one pop singles for Diana Ross & the Supremes on the Motown label. Although it was released as the final Supremes song featuring Diana Ross, who left the group for a solo career in January 1970, it was recorded as Ross' first solo single and Supremes members Mary Wilson and Cindy Birdsong do not sing on the recording. Both appear on the B-side, "He's My Sunny Boy."
The single topped the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart for one week. Reaching number-one on the American pop chart in the final 1969 issue of Billboard magazine (dated December 27), the single was not only the final number-one in 12 chart-topping pop hits for The Supremes, but it also holds the distinction of being the final American number-one hit of the 1960s.
The song was written by Johnny Bristol, Jackey Beavers, and Harvey Fuqua in 1961; and Bristol and Beavers recorded the song together as "Johnny & Jackey" for the Tri-Phi label that same year. "Someday" was a moderate success in the Midwestern United States, but gained little notice in other venues.
Tri-Phi was purchased by Motown in the mid-1960s. Fuqua, Bristol, and Beavers all joined Berry Gordy's by-then famous record company, and "Someday We'll Be Together" became part of Motown's Jobete publishing catalog.
Beavers soon departed for Chess Records, although both Bristol and Fuqua stayed on as songwriters and producers for the label.
In 1969, Bristol was preparing a cover version of "Someday We'll Be Together," to be recorded by Motown act Jr. Walker & the All-Stars. Bristol had already recorded the instrumental track and the background vocals by Maxine Waters and Julia Waters when Berry Gordy happened upon the tracks and heard them. Gordy thought that "Someday" would be a perfect first solo single for Diana Ross, who was making her long-expected exit from the Supremes at the time, and had Bristol sequester Ross into the studio to record the song.
Unable at first to get the vocal performance he desired from Diana Ross, Johnny Bristol (pictured directly above) decided to try something different: he would harmonize with Ross, helping her to get into the mood needed for the record. On the first take, the engineer accidentally recorded both Ross's vocal and Bristol's ad-libs. Bristol and arranger Wade Marcus liked the results, and Bristol had his vocal recorded alongside Ross' for the final version of the song. Bristol's ad-libs and words of encouragement to Ross can be heard in the background throughout the song. When Berry Gordy heard the completed song, he decided to release it as the final Diana Ross & the Supremes song. Ross' first solo single instead, released in early 1970, became "Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)."
While the explicit subject of the song was that of Ross comforting a long-distance lover, "Someday We'll Be Together" allowed for a number of other implications such that Ross and bandmates Mary Wilson and Cindy Birdsong would one day "be together." Further, in concert, Ross would suggest that "someday, we'll be together" in regard to contemporary troubles like civil rights and the ongoing demonstrations and protests against the Vietnam War.
"Someday We'll Be Together" was included on the final Diana Ross & the Supremes album, "Cream of the Crop." The song was a United States number-one hit on both the Billboard Hot 100 popular singles chart and the R&B singles charts, as well as charting in the top twenty at number 13 on the UK Singles Chart. It also peaked on the Netherlands' MegaCharts at #19 in 1970.
"Someday" charted at number-one on the Billboard Hot 100 popular singles chart for one week, on December 27, 1969. It also charted at number-one on the Billboard R&B Singles chart for four weeks, from December 13, 1969 to January 3, 1970. "Someday We'll Be Together" therefore appeared in Billboard as both the final Hot 100 and R&B number-one of the 1960s, and as the first R&B number-one of the 1970s.
The girl group made their final of several performances throughout the decade with Diana Ross singing lead on the 1960s finale of The Ed Sullivan Show that aired live Sunday, December 21, 1969 on CBS.
"Someday We'll Be Together" was the final number at Diana Ross & the Supremes' farewell concert on January 14, 1970 at the Frontier Hotel in Las Vegas. After the completion of the show, Jean Terrell was presented onstage to the audience as Diana Ross' replacement, and "Diana Ross & the Supremes" officially split apart, becoming the new "Supremes."
Ross reunited with Wilson and Birdsong in 1983, performing the single for the "Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever," television special.
DUBAI BOY CIRCUIT:
Rumors are circulating that this once popular lead singer (and solo artist) is so desperate for money that he tried unsuccessfully to get on the Dubai "boy circuit." The reason for his rejection, he's small in statue and despite his once name status, he's below average looking and he's not young enough. The age range on the Dubai boy circuit is 18-25.
It would have been ideal since this flamboyant singer is a known bisexual who has a taste for well built men and model type women.
He has boyfriends and baby mama's.
He's so freaky, that he switches from top to bottom at the drop of a dime.
He's had beef with a male R&B singer (code name: underage) and he's had confrontations with an ATL (R&B) singer and a rapper (known as an lyricist).
He also likes to attend drag shows and he has a thing for male and female groupies.
Years ago, he leased Roll Royce's and rented Hollywood mansions to host parties.
Allegedly, he's performed fellatio on random men to pay his rent in the past.
Who is he?
NEW EBOOK! (THINK AND GROW RICH):
You've probably heard of Napoleon Hill's legendary book "Think and Grow Rich," (2nd pic) which has sold over 15 million copies worldwide.
The bestselling book was the end result of interviewing and researching over 500 successful men and women in an effort to discover the exact method they used in order to achieve their respective goals.
Included among these 500 men and women were Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Theodore Roosevelt, Charles Schwab, Woodrow Wilson, Alexander Graham Bell, John D. Rockefeller, along with many others.
In the introduction of his book, Napoleon Hill gives mention of a Hidden Secret, which was in essence, the exact how-to methodology of thinking and achieving the goals you desire, not just that of financial success.
The secret is revealed in the book: "The Hidden Secret in Think And Grow Rich," (first pic).
Examples: "If you are ready for the secret, you already possess one half of it."
"If you are ready to put it to use, you will recognize it at least once in every chapter."
"Somewhere as you read, the secret to which I refer will jump from the page and stand boldly before you, if you are ready for it! When it appears, you will recognize it."
I read the book and agree with it whole heartedly. I believe this was the much needed follow up to Napoleon Hill's classic.
When I first read "Think and Grow Rich," I missed the secret, so my results were great, but they were not consistent.
You will certainly enlighten a lot of souls."
