Janelle Monae- Many Moons (Video)

It premiered on 106 Friday as the "New Joint".....now, if yall know me..yall know I hate BET and I aint watched 106 since I don't know when....but I was flipping through the channels and saw Janelle and I went on & watched.....this song is great and the video is AMAZING!!!! I'm surprised that BET actually had her on the show, I think they might end up doing her like they did Solange, played her video is a new joint then told her that the video doesn't appeal to their target audience....anway if you all don't have Metropolis Suite you should go & pick that up!!! it's only 7 songs but it's worth it, because it's told in the story so this album is just Chapter I out of IV


Erykah Badu- A.D. 2000

This is like the most powerful, political protest song that I've ever heard..and it's one of my favorites. The song is about how in '99 the NYPD police gunned down a 23 year old unarmed Guinea man named Amadou Diallo, after he was mistaken for an unidentified rapist....the four officers were acquitted of all charges. Badu wrote the elegy for Diallo (hence his initials in the song) and this is a video of her performing it live.. & if you haven't gotten a chance to see her perform live you are really missing a show.


OH EM GEE!!!! I'm like super stoked that fall television is FINALLY back! It gives me something to entertain myself other than my thoughts, & believe you me they're mine and very entertaining they are WIERD!!! but enough with that...back to the TV Line-up of my fav-rite shows.... and I'm kinda upset because I have a late night class on Mondays so, I Can't watch The Big Bang Theory & How I Met Your Mother but I'm also glad that they've moved "The Game" on the CW to Fridays (October 3rd) Which is kinda strange because they moved the whole monday night line up to friday nights which is gonna lose A LOT of viewers and I'm sure they aren't going to do Encore shows on Sundays like they do with the other shows.....but what I'm watching this fall?!?!? check it out.

Premiering (Tomorrow) Thursday, Sep 25th....UGLY BETTY we will all find out what her decision is... will she marry Henry or travel the world with Gio?

Sunday Sep 28th DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES!!!! Season 5 premieres and we will have fast forwarded 5 years into the future Gabbie has two kids and she's become DOMESTICATED!!! Mike has been killed off the show..Edie's back with husband... I don't wanna give it all away so just tune in this Sunday.....don't know if I'll be doing Episode Reviews and giving away spoilers for other episodes.....just depends on my mood....but i'll keep you posted


Raphael Saadiq-The Way I See It

Raphael Saadiq has been a dominant force in R&B for over twenty years as the front man of groups Tony Toni Tone and Lucy Pearl. As a producer he's worked with everyone from D'Angelo to Joss Stone. Now with his fourth studio album, Saadiq bravely takes on the R&B sound of the '60's and shows great homage to a wonderful era. "The Way I See It" is one of the best R&B albums released in the last six months and I can guarantee if you like REAL music then you won't be disappointed. With this album Saadiq defines what Rhythm & Blues truly is. Although he holds it down on his own, he reaches out to some influential artist, including Stevie Wonder, who plays harmonica on "Never Give You Up", British singer Joss Stone, on the "Just One Kiss" duet and Jay-Z is featured on the bonus track "Oh Girl" remix...which I really don't care for and I'm a huge Jay-Z fan, but I think he should've had Andre 3000 on this song, I can hear him doing something on that track....but, with the exception of the songs with Jay-Z and Joss Stone, if first heard, the album could easily be mistaken as something your mother, or grandmother would play with sounds resembling those of the Delfonics, Temptations, The Chi-Lites, and Smokey Robinson

I love this era because it takes us back to a time when everything was done with respect, class and dignity. Men and women addressed each other by their whole names with Mr. or Ms. in front of it...2008 is the 60's soul revival thanx to Solange and Raphael!



So, I was riding around today and decided to go out on the reservoir because it was such a nice day out and I went to take some random pics for this photo assignment for class and sooooooooo I'm riding and I hear something coming up behind me with some bass....I look to my right and guess what I see yall........................ this big dummy pulls up next to me in a (GET THIS) TOYOTA YARIS!!!!! and he's leaned back in the seat smoking a blunt trying to mean mug...

Now, I'm so far from being a "thug" but, from what I've been around, I KNOW you can NOT be hard and thugging in a TOYOTA YARIS!!!!! I mean, I know the gas prices got people in a financial crunch and they're trading their big cars in for smaller ones....but dude, seriously though? a yaris? you couldn't just get you an old Nissan Altima that got good gas mileage or something?

Someone seriously needs to pull his "thug" card because not only was he 1.) had bass in the Yaris. but, 2.) He was loked out (leaned back in the seat) in the car...in a Yaris all he had to do was take the driver seat out and just on the back seat and still be able to touch the gas and break pedals....and 3.) smoking a blunt......



Cassie: Official Girl (VIDEO)

Okay, I'm not a big fan of Cassie but I LOVE this song....it had to grow on me though, and they play it so much in the morning that you can't help but to listen to it....and I honestly think this song is about Diddy, like if you listen to the words that's sooooooooo their relationship...but I think the main reason I love it is because she reminds me of Aaliyah in this video...especially when she's dancing in the brown sweat suit, kinda reminiscent of "4 Page Letter" and when she walked in the building with the glasses on that's the first thing that popped in my head...she favors her BUT she doesn't look anything like her..anyway check out the video Official Girl feat. Lil Wayne


Kanye Arrested

Not 2 minutes after posting this previous post I find out dude JUST got arrested today in LA for going after a TMZ reporter (damn they be everywhere, they be on it!) the way it went down...

West was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport and booked on charges of felony vandalism. West and his road manager were taken into custody after West allegedly rushed at a TMZ photographer and grabbed his camera. A struggle followed and West took the camera and threw it to the ground. West's manager then ripped off the mic and viewfinder and smashed it to the ground. The incident took place about 7:50 a.m. outside the passenger security screening area in Terminal 4. According to reports, the camera valued at more than $10,000. According to TMZ.com, the attack was caught on tape and was posted on their website shortly after.

The folks at TMZ made a statement; also check out the VIDEO of the incident on the TMZ website
"Erik (TMZ cameraman) says he was at Terminal 4 (American Airlines) when he noticed a still photog taking several pictures of Kanye West. Erik says West rushed the photog and grabbed his camera. A struggle ensued and the still guy was screaming, "Police, help!" Erik says Kanye then took the still camera and threw it on the ground, breaking it into pieces.

Erik then went over to Kanye, his camera rolling, when Kanye's bodyguard walked up to him, realized Erik was taping, and said, "Give me the camera, give me the camera." Erik responded that he had a press pass and had a right to shoot. The assistant then grabbed the camera, ripped off the mic and viewfinder and smashed it to the ground.

Erik says Kanye then tried to leave to board his plane, but cops stopped him before he got to security. The cops then interviewed Erik, the still photog, Kanye and his assistant..

This is where it gets crazy. The cops asked Erik if he videotaped the incident and Erik said he had. That's when Kanye lunged toward him and said, "Give me the fu***ng videotape." Cops had to restrain Kanye as he tried coming at Erik"

Smash or Trash? Kanye West

Kanye West- Love Lockdown (Listen/DL)

Everyone was wondering where this song came from when Kanye performed it on the VMA's, well it's his first single off his upcoming fourth album which is slated to be released December 18.....I'm glad because it's been a year ago today! since Graduation was released and he's tried to pull a janet jackson by releasing the majority of the album as singles..he's released 6 to be exact...but back to the lecture at hand.....The new single Love Lockdown I'm feeling it, because I'm loving the beat BUT that whole voice synthesizer/vocodor thing I'm really starting to get tired of it was Amazing when Roger Troutman of the Zapp Band did it and interesting when T-Pain brought it back out...but NOW it's starting 2 get like...OMG give it a rest!!!! now EVERYONE wants to get on the talk box in their songs...I just hope his whole album doesn't consist of this!

I don't wanna hear nothing that takes a year to grow on me...and don't be giving no 10 songs that's like 3 minutes long... If you gonna do 10 songs, hell do like Badu and let them bitches be AT LEAST 7-10 I mean, seriously!....but anyway you be the judge

WTF: Potential father of Bristol Palin's child

WTF!! I knew there was a reason McCain hasn't let this lady go out without him and speak on his behalf because he & his team knows the media will eat her alive!!!!! and especially after this video has leaked! but he claims it's because "We're having so much fun together" (OH MALARKY!) Republicans are deemed to be soo conservative and go against soo many things but here she has a teenage daughter who's unmarried and pregnant.......but from this video that's not the ONLY socialist thing she's done....she has split dark oak!!! & the father of her unborn child COULD be a black man, now I respect him for this video because he want's to be apart of his child's life....or at least I think because he DID state in the video that he's trying to get his "urban rap career" started (his words not mine!). So all in all this could just be a publicity stunt OR maybe not.... seems to me McCain didn't dig deep enough in her closet to find all her skeletons, because, honestly I think he just picked her to win over the voters who said they were gonna vote for him since Hillary didn't win the Democratic nomination and because she wasn't nominated for VP but, hey I give major kudos to whomever his PR team is because they are thinking smart.......... anyway without further ado here's the video of the guy.


WTF&OMG O' The Day

FORRE ST CITY, AR – Police say a Forrest City, Arkansas man has been charged with raping his 8 day- old baby. 

According to a police report, officers were called to the Forrest City Medical Center, September 1, 2008, about a baby that had been sexually assaulted. Forrest City police say the baby also had a skull fracture and had to be transferred to the Arkansas Children’s Hospi tal in Littl e Rock because of the severity of the injuries. 

Investigators say the father attacked the infant during a visit at her 15 year-old mother' s house . Police say other people were at the home at the time of the assault. 

Police say Davis had no criminal record since turning 18, but could not say whether Davis had a juvy wrap-sheet . The information could not be released under Arkansas state law, said investigators. 

Police say the infant’s father, 18 year- old Reginald Davis , has been charged with Rape and Second- Degree Battery. The case is still under investigation and it is unknown if any other arrests will be made, said Forrest City Police. 

**Editors Note** I hate hearing stories like this and it bothers me even more to find out the guy is black!...I hope they beat him senseless wherever he goes, this sick fuck needs to be put UNDER the jail....UGH! just makes my skin crawl. and what's even more disturbing is that there were other people there!!! where were they when he was doing this to the baby WHY did they leave him alone with the baby and for him to even attack her... that baby is 8 days old, what could so do for him?she did NOT ask to come into this world and if it was from something the momma did take it out on her NOT the baby...he looks retarded anyway but that does not excuse him for what he did....i hope he rots in hell!!**


WTF O' The Day

The Tings Tings: Shutup & Let Me Go (Video)

Okay, I first heard about them from iTunes, if you have it I advise you weekly to check the little tab on your right hand side that says "iTunes Store" and scroll down they have this thing called "Single of the Week" and you can find out about great new artist Jazmine Sullivan is the artist this week....

But, anyway...this video/song is contagious I love it because it kinda reminds me of  Justice D.A.N.C.E. video which had the most coolest graphics and t-shirt designs in there (check out the video after The Tings Tings video)

****People don't date anymore? wassup with that!?!?! like that's the main reason why relationships fail because people refuse to take the time out to date and get to know the person they're trying to build something with, because honestly if you really take the time out to get to know them you'll see that they probably aren't what you were expecting in a mate, don't meet for the first time and think that's you're date....go home f*ck, and then the next day yall a couple....that sooo won't cut the mustard.

****What don't you understand when you call me and I tell you i'm in class?!?!? that means i'll be in there the next 50 mins or hour and 20 minutes soooo don't call me back and ask me am I still in class ESPECIALLY if I answer the phone with a whisper or I send you to voicemail plz, don't leave me messages talking about some "oh, fa real? that's how you wanna do it now?...so you acting like that?" SERIOUSLY?? 

****I find it humorous and kinda ironic that the Republican National Convention had to take a backseat to the very thing they neglected 3 years ago HA!

****Why does everyone have a clothing line?

****Why does everyone who can't rap want to be a rapper?
****Why is Mary J. Blige hoping on folks remix like that would make the song better? because to me that made me dislike "Magic"

****These songs are like totally guilty pleasures and I can't believe i'm finna actually tell yall this Miley Cyrus- 7 Things; Miley Cyrus- See You Again; The Jonas Brothers- Burnin' Up.

****People bother me when they just stare at me for no reason like they waiting to say something but can't find the words... DAMMIT LOOK AWAY UNTIL YOU THINK OF SOMETHING!

****Don't you hate reading people dating profiles or myspace pages and they make you feel like your IQ has drastically dropped because you're trying to decipher what they meant to say in that phrase...UGH! give it up tards!

I guess that's all for now...
