Tyrese Gibson tweeted recently: “I have officially secured the life rights to the life story of Teddy Pendergrass, my inspiration. This movie will be made…” People are already saying he can’t pull it off… to those haters, there’s still hope for you 😉 I’m not even a Tyrese fan, but say CONGRATULATIONS!
Who is Frank Jordan? Here’s his short bio: Well, let’s see…I’m just a laid back, nice guy (That doesn’t mean doormat!) in Phoenix just trying not to spontaneously combust in the scorching heat of the summers here! I’m originally from Saint Louis, MO so my favorite Baseball team in the whole world are my St. Louis Cardinals! I love to laugh and make others laugh. I’m also a Cartoonist! Welcome Frank…The Museum of UnCut Funk looks forward to a long relationship of supporting your endeavor.
The Brothers of Spontaneous Combustion are Willie James Smith II (artist) and Jerrod Smith (writer). Those titles apply very loosely. They have been creating characters and stories since they were kids. They were born in Beaufort, SC, but moved around South Carolina growing up. They now live in Savannah, Georgia. The Museum of UnCut Funk welcome these brothers and we look forward to exhibiting more of their work in the future.
The Museum of UnCut Funk is connecting with the koolest cats and the hippest chicks in the comic book, comic art, graphic novel and illustration world. We are building some really great relationships as we pursue our mission to provide independent artists with a funky venue where they can showcase their work. Trel “Fave” Robinson is one of the kool cats that we have discovered in our journey. By featuring him in Aesthetic Grooves we hope to help spread the word about his work.
It’s no secret that the MTA’s policies have been questionable at different points in time. I must admit however, that I was very pleased to get reimbursed for metro-cards that failed me within the MTA system. Despite all the cons of the New York City subway system, one can’t deny it’s one of the best modes of transportation in the world… when it’s working.
Every now and then I get surprised when I find a poster from the 1970’s Blaxploitation era that I haven’t seen before. Is The Father Black Enough? I have never heard of this film but the poster art is amazing.
The Museum of UnCut Funk recently featured Kagan McLeod and his Infinite Kung Fu graphic novel in Aesthetic Grooves. VERY FUNKY STUFF. You can read all about it here – http://museumofuncutfunk.com/2012/04/07/infinite-kung-fu-part-1-by-kagan-mcleod/. While checking out Kagan’s work I stumbled across his amazing music themed ink drawings of some of my musical heroes. I reached out to Kagan and got his approval to post this work on our site. This cat creates some of the flyest images that fully represents what the Museum is all about.
Thanks Kagan…Sista ToFunky!

The Museum of UnCut Funk recently stumbled upon graphic artist Kagan McLeod and his novel Infinite Kung Fu. If you are a real fan of Blaxploitation and Kung Fu you’ll love this novel.
The Museum of UnCut Funk was contacted by a brother named Trevor who hipped us to a track called “Dumpin Em All”… the first thing I said when I saw the video was “this is the shit”! As you know I’m a hard core Blaxploitation fan and I don’t care about negative sterotypes and all the other bull associated with it. So I ask all of you who are true fans of the genre to check the track and give these brothers some love.

Led by founding member Nile Rodgers on guitar, CHIC brought the FUNK!

A Tribute to Black Women
One of the best things about researching the historical Images of Blacks in Comics is that I never know when I am going to find an unknown treasure. Such was the case when I found the following two volumes written by Sister Carolyn Jetter Greene and illustrated by Don C. Eaton.
