Narcissism for Black Women: The Very Good and Healthy Expression of Deep Self-Love, and Extreme Self-Devotion. Why? Because It's Good For Ya! And Sometimes I Write about Natural Hair, Among Other Things

Black Women and Asian Men: K-POP @ KCON With G-Dragon And Missy Elliot Makes History

Oh, that was a mouthful. So, for some of you this may be old news, but I like this story…. On August 24 – 24, an event called KCON took place in Los Angeles at LA Memorial Sports Arena. This venue accommodated a doubling of attendance from last year to around 20k. G-Dragon performed his […]


Rihanna – Stay ft. Mikky Ekko | Pink – Just Give Me a Reason ft. Nate Ruess

He’s so very cute, that Mikky Ekko. Doesn’t she look like she’s trying to fart in the tub at the end? That expression on her face…. Like the video, I only wish they’d been fair and have him without that sweater on. Nice arms.  😀   I like this song too.  


Some Nights by Fun and Too Close by Alex Clare

I’ve been hearing “Some Nights” on the radio, not knowing who made it. You know how DJs cannot be bothered to announce who created something. So, I thought it was a classic song by Ladysmith Black Mambazo  (a group from way back when). Well, this video changed my perception of the song, because it initially made […]


Black Women and Asian Men: K-Pop Video with Jay Park Makes History

Sorta continuing the BW / AM theme… The following link is an article from Mauika Hicks makes K-Pop history by being the love interest and lead dancer for Jay Park (he’s American of Korean descent). Some excerpts – the rest you’ll have to read at their site. It’s quite an informative interview. Paulette: How does […]


For Black Women: R.I.P. Whitney Houston

I did not know her personally. Yet, there’s so much hear-say that black folks like to pass along – gossipy nonsense – just so they could pretend they knew her. You know, a friend of a friend of a friend. I live in New Jersey. So, I’ve heard my share of crap. Back in the […]


Hey Ya Song – 2 Versions

I like this a little more. Sung by Obadiah Parker. It’s a slowed down earthy version, sounds a bit country.       Here’s the original by OutKast. Andre’s not afraid of being flamboyant, is he?     And where can I find someone to do my hair as nice as his? 😀


Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks

Another song I enjoy hearing. Very funky. They’re nice to look at too. 😀


Death Cab for Cutie – You Are A Tourist

I love this song.  The beginning has this guitar rhythm that is sooooo nice. I could loop that all day. Wish I could play a guitar. Enjoy.


Korean Hip Hop / K-Pop: T.O.P – Turn It Up

Gorgeous young man. Makes me think of a young Vulcan, in a Spock-like kinda way. Sexy. Everyone seems to move like Michael Jackson (R.I.P.) to me. I wonder when the fusion of Korean and black American music occurred? That’s rather fascinating to me.


Crazy White Boys: Eminem – Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna

I know the music video is about domestic violence, but Eminem and “Charlie” remind me of the “crazy white boys” back in my old neighborhood. Why? They burned down a house. No one was in it, thank goodness, but these guys had a fearlessness that was just totally off-the-wall.


Florence + The Machine – Dog Days Are Over (2010 Version)

Enjoy…. 😀


The Black Keys: Tighten Up

The video is so cute, and the music is even better.


Johnny Cash: Hurt

I was going to write about forgiveness, of the self, but this song just tops that. This is a cover of Trent Reznor’s Hurt,  but I like Johnny Cash’s version a bit more.


One Eskimo ‘Kandi’

Man, I like this song, so soulful. I heard this on the last episode of Bones.


Pearl Jam: The Fixer

Pearl Jam – The Fixer from João Barreiros on Vimeo. Practically an old tune, but I enjoy hearing it. Relates to the last post with the “Fixer” approach of some men.
