Nelson Mandela dead at 95 years old – NJNews

Posted in Gone Too Soon, New Jawn Exclusive, Politics, Television, World News with tags , , , , on December 5, 2013 by New Jawn


We lost a hero today after a long battle with health issues at the age of 95.  Nelson Mandela was a President, a statesman, a prisoner but most importantly a humanist.  He served 27 years in prison to fight segregation and raise up against the white minority in South Africa.  Mandela was one of the most powerful and inspirational men that ever lived and he claimed that he used the power of sports to unite people.

Let’s take a look at some of his achievements.  He opened Africa’s first black law firm, he stopped a civil war with reason and peace,  he educated the youth instead of finishing his college degree, he became the first black president in S. Africa, and finally he ended the apartheid.

Mandela died today at 1:50 pm EST surrounded by friends and family in his house outside Johannesburg.  Rest in peace to the father of South Africa.

Tim & Eric's Go Pro Show

Tim & Eric are back with a six episode web series called Tim & Eric’s Go Pro Show that follows the every day lives of the comedy favorites. Check out the first two episodes that premiered yesterday and today on YouTube. Not much going on, but you do get to see the guys receive calls from Hollywood big wigs like Spielberg and Pacino. I wonder who will drop them a line in the next episode. Plenty of goofs and pranks to come, I hope.

Divine Fits performed a couple tracks on Jimmy Kimmel Live during the week and I’m just getting around to giving them a watch. They blessed us with a track fronted by each of their singers. Surprisingly, neither was a track I would have expected, but that’s just fine. I don’t give some of the later tracks off A Thing Called Divine Fits enough play.

Justin Timberlake on SNL

Justin Timberlake made his 5th hosting visit to Saturday Night Live last night and brought a bunch of celebrities with him, including Hov for a performance of “Suit & Tie”. JT did most of his recurring characters from his SNL history. No Barry Gibb Talk Show though. R.I.P. Robin Gibb. The second performance was “Mirrors”. No outro. Bummer.
