My favorite 106 & Park moments were Tom Cruise dancing, 50 Cent & Kanye West, Janet and AJ thing and others. I used to watch the show back when I was in elementary school. I always watch it after Rap City. 106 & Park has been on airwaves since 14 years but now itr’s over. Great show.

Today marks the end of an era.  It’s the last televised episode of BET’s iconic music video countdown show, 106 and Park.  From here on out, 106 will appear online only.  “The livest audience on television” is now a thing of the past, but the excitement which earned that title came just as much from what happened between videos than the videos themselves.

In honor of 106 and Park coming to an end, AllHipHop.com has gone back to the beginning and put together a list of the ten best moments in the history of the show.

10). Michelle Williams Falls: In 2004, Destiny’s Child appeared on 106 to perform their smash-hit “Soldier.”  The most notable part of the performance though was right when the trio went on stage and Michelle Williams took a fall.

09). Bow Wow Kisses Tyra Banks: During his teen years, Bow Wow ruled 106 and…

Theaters, Sony, and Paramount Cave to Terrorists and Cyberbullies & Why that’s Bad

Best post that I ever read about The Interview. It’s kinda messed up when the movie was canceled. Sony could have just released it on DVD instead of leaving it shelved. It’s like taking candy out of baby’s mouth.

interview_xlgIn what can only be described as stupidity and cowardice, national theater chains including AMC, Regal, Cinemark, and Cineplex, and eventually Sony Pictures Entertainment have pulled the December 25th release of The Interview. For those who might not know, The Interview is a film starring Seth Rogen and James Franco that has them traveling to North Korea to interview Kim Jong Un, and are tasked to kill the leader. The country didn’t take the comedy too lightly, and instead North Korea (likely, it’s hard to verify) waged a cyber-war against Sony in retaliation.
