Sammy Davis Jr. Has That Black Magic

sammy - that black magic

I've started a new blog called That Black Magic. You can click on the link or the picture itself to be taken there. This blog, and its companion page on MySpace, are a tribute to the wonderful contributions made by black entertainers in the world of cinema, television, music, etc. throughout the years.

I've been wanting to do such a blog for quite some time. I wanted to get settled in with this blog before I started up another one. I posted my first blog post this morning there. It explains the love and admiration I've had for black entertainment since I was a kid. Much of that started with my family. I can remember listening to the records of Sammy Davis Jr. at my grandmother's house.

The new blog will feature pictures, videos, movie reviews, celebrity gossip, and much more. I will cover black entertainers of the past and present. I know many of my readers here are mostly into just retro entertainment. I do plan to cover everything from blaxploitation films to the music of Motown over there as far as the past is concerned. I also want to share items about what's going on among black celebrities of today. There is so much wonderful music, whether it be jazz, soul, funk, hip hop, etc., coming from black musical acts out there now. There have also been some very amazing acting performances by black actors and actresses in Hollywood today. Oscars have been awarded to several black actors and actresses over this decade. It's been way past time. I want to cover the full spectrum of black entertainment whether it was in the 60's/70's or today.

I hope that many of you will be interested enough to at least check it out. I plan to update it fairly regularly. Maybe there will be some things there that you will like. I know not all of you will follow me over to that blog. I totally understand that. I don't want you to feel pressured. I wanted to offer something different than what I'm doing here. I also have plans for another blog in the near future. I just want to get this one up and running before then. If you think it's something that you might like, or are at least intrigued by the prospect, then I ask that you pay me a visit at my newest blog. Even if it's not a blog that you can see becoming a regular visitor and commentor at, maybe you'll at least stop in from time to time. You never know what you'll see there.

Thanks for taking the time to read this blog post. I appreciate it. I do look forward to seeing any of you over there that come aboard. I've really enjoyed doing this blog so far. It's been so much fun. It's been a pleasure talking to you all about the Rat Pack. Maybe some of us will find some common interests at my other blog as well. Thanks so much for all your continued support here at this blog. I always love reading your comments. You guys mean a lot to me. Take care. Cheers!

I love that picture of Sammy. I'll be sure to check your new blog out. I'm more into the 60's and 70's, but I do like some modern entertainment. Good luck with it. I'm sure it will be wonderful like this one.

Hey Steve. Thanks. I appreciate that. I posted my first real post over there today.

Great idea for a blog - there is so much entertainment history and entertainers that "worked" that should be remembered.

That is one of the things that I like about your blog.

Great post!

Thanks again.

Sammy's getting down! As soon as I get through this blog, I'll jump on that one as well....

I'm not doing this one anymore. It got deleted. A couple of racists got into my account and deleted. I never started it back. Instead I devoted my time to my other blog Sugar & Spice. I did miss this one. It was a great idea.
