Restart.

As I write this, I’m about a week removed from the 1-year anniversary of this site. When I started CarterCubed, I was eager to get back into blogging after spending close to a year deciding what I wanted to write about, and figuring out a way to make that work….

Rave: Why I love ABC’s ‘Black-ish’

I’m pretty sure I’ve said this already, but I don’t watch a lot of TV these days. With the exception of shows like American Horror Story and Scandal, when I do turn on my television, it’s usually to watch reruns of older shows that I enjoy. But when a friend of mine told me…

Rave: 30 Years of The Cosby Show

Eight seasons, and 30 years later, it’s hard for anyone to overstate just how iconic and important The Cosby Show was to American television. Not only did it launch the careers of stars like Raven-Symoné, but it also had a hand in changing how black families could be portrayed on TV, thus…

Review: ‘Indigo Child’

“We are the truth. We are forever. We are the youth. We are together.” Those are the first lines heard on ‘Indigo Child’, the debut album from up-and-coming artist, Raury. And if you stick around and listen to the rest of the project, then the manifesto eventually begins to make…

Rave: My favorite Michael Jackson videos

With so many iconic songs and moments in pop culture, it’s almost impossible to overstate the legacy of Michael Jackson. The star, who would have been 56 today, will forever be remembered not only for his music, but for his visuals, evident in MTV’s decision to name the Video Vanguard Award…

Rant: What You Need To Stop Saying About Ferguson

It’s been almost two weeks since the killing of black, unarmed teen, Michael Brown, and to say that social media has been ablaze is an understatement. In fact, many attribute the media attention that the case is now getting to sites like Twitter, where news of the killing really started…

Rant: Yeah, Sometimes Twitter Sucks.

Anyone who knows me knows that Twitter is my social media drug of choice. Along with YouTube and Tumblr, it’s one of the sites that’s always open on my internet browser, and yes, my tweet count is a bit on the high side. Thanks for letting me know. But despite…

Review: Majid Jordan– A Place Like This EP

It’s pretty hard to ignore Drake these days. Nothing Was The Same was easily one of the biggest releases of last year, as it was fueled by the success of singles like “Hold On, We’re Going Home”, which served as Drake’s biggest crossover hit to date. But what most people didn’t…

Rant: On This Kim Kardashian Game

First things first: Yes, I downloaded the game. I’m not usually one to get into video games (especially smartphone games), but with all of the hype circulating around the new, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game, I decided to check it out. Plus, it’s summer, so with all of this glorious free time,…

Rant: Please leave us alone, J.K. Rowling.

I’ve had it. It’s been three years since the world finally received closure via Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows- Part 2. Three years since everyone who didn’t read the books finally found out what happened to everyone in the Harry Potter universe, so that we could all breathe one, collective sigh…
