‘Chappelle’s Show: The Series Collection’ DVD Review

23 April 2015 5:28 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

When YouTube was created I’m sure the plan wasn’t for people to watch bite sized amounts of comedy picking up the best skits from television shows from all over the world, but this is one way that I tend to watch the funniest comedians, and it was the first time I’ve really seen any of Dave Chappelle’s work.  With the release of Chappelle’s Show: The Series Collection this week, this is my chance to see his comedy as it was meant to be seen on television.

One thing that is obvious from the first season of the show is that Chappelle’s Show: The Series Collection coming from Comedy Central was a move from a more liberal HBO to a stricter form of television.  Though slightly more tamer of a channel this isn’t to say that Chappelle would not push the limits of what he could get away with. »

Kanye West Wore Heeled Velvet Boots in Paris -- Like the Look?!

Forget Kim Kardashian's cleavage-baring top -- Kanye West's shoes are stealing the show! The "Four Five Seconds" rapper stepped out with his wife during Paris Fashion Week, sporting heeled black velvet boots to go with his all-black designer duds. His odd footwear choice sparked some hilarious comments on Twitter, with users questioning if he was shopping in Kim's closet. "Kanye west is not a fashion genius. This man is giving us Payless shoes, basics from H&M and he wears Kim heeled boots," someone wrote. "Fam, Kanye wearing the exact same boots that Rick James was grinding into Eddie Murphy's couch," another added.
