It is with a certain amount of trepidation and a great deal of anticipation that Wise Math and the Inkognegro bring you The Black Odd Couple. The show your mother would warn you about if she was on the Internet.
If you are of a certain age, you may remember the Odd Couple, starring Quincy and, the lil Jewish guy who decided that 75 was a really good time to get married and knock out two babies.
If you’re of a certain pigment, you may remember the NEW (read Black) Odd Couple with the Big Dummy and the Black Guy from Barney Miller.
This has nothing to do with any of that.
TBOC is an Internet Talk Show that will air weekly starting Monday January 11, 2010 (thats 011110 For those of you who get off on such things) at 10PM Eastern.
I would tell you what it’s going to be about, but frankly, I have no idea. If it had been last night, it would have probably ranged from the NFL to Tiger Woods to the death of the Public Option, with just a tad bit of foolishness thrown in to make you smile and some gifted artist trying in vain to sell something while one of us asks provocative questions.
The Black Odd Couple is a collaboration between two gifted Brothers who share a few things and don’t share many others.
We aren’t Different for the sake of being different. We’re different because we’re different.
This is not a game or a shtick where Wise and I sit around and try and find ways to be different for the purpose of entertainment.
We are as different as two brothers can be and still be on the same page.
During our Gestation period, #TBOC will live as a Twitter hash-tag and through this blog.
We look forward to having you join the #TBOC movement.
Following @inkognegro and @wisemath will enable you to get any questions you want answered.
