WHAT'S HAPPENING MYRON? This weekend I went out to see "Iron Man 3." I usually don't make plans to go see movies such as this, it just sort of happens when you have kids. That accounts for how I've sat through versions 1 and 2.
However, after nearly two hours of non-stop action, a ton of overpriced concessions and a restless two year old, I must say that I wasn't disappointed at all.
Without giving up the plot or ending, this particular installment of the "Iron Man" series to be sort of a wrap-up, as if there won't be an "Iron Man 4." But of course we all know better, huh?
There will eventually be an "Iron Man 4," especially if this one makes a gazillion dollars like the last one. Hollywood sort of has a way of sticking to the same formula, especially if it's profitable. So if you're in the mood for a little bit of action this coming weekend, you should at least give the movie a chance. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
Last week was an interesting week in sports, as Washington Wizards player Jason Collins became the first openly gay active player in an American sport when he announced his sexuality.
Collins has received support from the NFL, some of his former and current teammates, as well as the president. He and his family even sat on the couch with Oprah this past Sunday night to talk about the developments surrounding his decision to go public.
Meanwhile, do you remember Antoine Dodson?
Yeah, the guy who brought you the unintended catch phrase "Hide yo kids...Hide yo wife"? He's back...in the news at least.
According to TMZ, Dodson had announced that he is no longer gay. Although there was speculation, I never actually knew him to publicly admit that he was gay. But I guess this somewhat confirms it; however he also stated that he would also like to have a wife and family one day.
I'm wondering how much support Dodson will he get? Will he get a call from Washington?
Who knows! In the meantime, you can go to TMZ's website to see the actual interview that was conducted with him on last week. You might find it to be somewhat interesting.
Here What's Happening...
Here's something different...are you getting married this year? If you're free between 6 p.m. and 9 pm on Thursday, May 9th, you're in luck. Macy's in Oak Court is having an event called "Sip & Scan."
Well, Sip & Scan is a great event for those who are planning their wedding but haven't gotten all of the loose ends tied up. It's also a great event for wedding planners! If your BIG day is on the way but you've yet to choose a photographer, caterer, florist, etc. this is you opportunity to meet some prospects.
Also, if you have planned your registry, you may actually browse the store and take care of that as well. Admission is free and so are the refreshments. You can stop by and still get home in time to watch "Scandal."
Speaking of 'Scandal'
The season finale of 'Scandal' is coming up on the 16th. Do something different this time. Catch the season finale party at Memories Banquet Hall & Event Center. It's from 7:30 p.m. til 10:30 p.m.
There will be show trivia and other games, great food and vendors. Admission is $10. A great time awaits you.
Also, Johnny Gill, Kem and Keith Sweat take over the Landers Center this Saturday night for the Mother's Day Celebration. I plan to be in attendance and will be bringing you details on next week. Until then, that's what's happening.
