THE OBENSON REPORT

Covering Cinema From All Across The African Diaspora

So... I Went To A Screening of "Che" On Friday Night

... And all I got was this photo with Steven Soderbergh... :o)



Guess who's who?

Twice during the 5-hour screening event - the first time as we sat in the theatre, waiting for the film to begin; the second time during the 30-minute intermission - I was approached by 2 different people asking me if I was "that guy from TV On The Radio," the New York City experimental rock band. I don't think we look alike, other than the fact that we are both black, with full lips and noses, just like most black people I know :o) You be the judge:



I will review Che on Monday night's podcast...

    You and the Soder man look so serious...

    And yes, you do look like dude. At least you look like someone interesting; people could be saying you look like Flava Flav ;0)

    Haha - Flavor Flav also looks "interesting."

    "Soder man" was really cool. He stood there for probably an hour after the screening, signing programs, and taking pictures with people, and the entire time, just kept chatting, and smiling, and laughing with folks.

    Sorry, but my man Flav is just plain unpleasant on the eyes--not interesting in my book, but I see your point...

    Jaceel - I haven't heard that one... "Dry Drunk Emperor" is my favorite TOTR track.

    IW - You know you'd go on "Flavor Of Love" if they asked you :o)
