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

Media Watch: Black Actress Update – Has Hollywood Been Good to Them Lately?

Last post of the year. So, Happy New Year. Have a prosperous 2013, and many more. Let’s get down to business. I’ve compiled all the shows that I noticed have black women (two black parents or not) as main characters or otherwise. Always feel free to add shows / movies I may have missed … […]

Epic Rap Battles: Famous Figures Battle

Like to find something amusing to get through the slog of the coming week. Since it’s three days, that’s a good start. Don’t know how I found the first YouTube clip, but they all cracked me up. Anyone remember MTV’s Celebrity Deathmatch? Used to love watching that. This stuff is much milder. I always consider the […]

Open Forum: Music, Getting Off the Planet, This Election and What’s Up?

Top 40 Radio There are three singers that I find hard to listen to: Taylor Swift (she whines, really cannot sing), Kelly Clarkson (she sings about the same thing over and over again – being unable to get along with any man) and Katy Perry (I wanna take a hammer to her – Madonna did […]

Open Forum: What’s On Your Mind? My Experience With Hurricane Sandy

Survived Hurricane Sandy And all I have to show for it is this blog post – no T-shirt yet. That was one nasty trick without the treat. I guess the treat is still being here to write about it. Was I scared? No, actually. Besides the difference in how it sounded, like a train rolling […]

Are Black Children Too Stupid To Learn?

Florida School System Gives Up on Black Children Are black children really that hard to educate? Or are people who are supposed to be professionals, you know – experts at teaching, declaring that there’s an actual limit to black intelligence? Are black children really too stupid to learn? A nephew of mine believed he wasn’t […]

Comic Con: The Nerd Economy Thrives

Went today. Never attended this particular one before. Although I’ve been to a few sci-fi or writer’s conventions. I thought Comic Con was only a west coast affair. Rather nice and interesting event, I expected TV shows or something of that nature. But it was pure comics, video games, and the like. I only regret not […]

Yay! A Rainbow After the Rain

Open topic – if you like… First time I snapped a half decent photo of one. Gotta find something to appreciate to relieve the stress.

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 […]

Open Forum: The Floor is Yours – Olympics, National News, etc.

I’ll come back later and write more… I sense folks want to talk about many different subjects. Links as usual are welcome. Feel free. Happy Sunday. 😀 *** Added: Thursday, August 9, 2012 Olympics Apparently, U.S. gymnast McKayla Maroney didn’t win a gold medal. Hence the scowl. Check the tumblr site satirizing her. Wee bit […]

Wayne Brady vs Bill Maher: How a Good Brotha Fights A Bad White Man

He does it by talking about the black women (of questionable repute) that the “bad white man” dates. Say What? Apparently, Wayne Brady (WB) got plenty tired of Bill Maher (BM) using his name to lament President Obama not being hardcore or thuggish enough to suit him. Perhaps both should search YouTube for that video […]

Do I Want To Talk About

I suppose my hiatus is over. It’s hard to blog sometimes. Events happen quickly. And by time I think to write about it – I’m not feeling it anymore. Do I want to talk about Floridian Cannibals? No thanks. Makes me lose my appetite. Do I want to talk about the NBA playoffs? I only […]

What’s On Your Mind? Mine Is Rather Blank

This is a free range post, so don’t expect too much coherence. 🙂 News With No Opinion I don’t watch the evening news. I read selective items online such as: local Weather, Technology, Health, Sports (at least when J-Lin was playing with the Knicks), Politics, Business, Economics, and hopefully stuff that wont irritate and annoy […]

For Black Women: Don’t Ever Ask For Permission To Live

Spring is coming. Well, up here in the Northeast it’s coming. I’m sure for those of you around the country (or world) the weather is different. Could be blazing hot right now, eh? I haven’t been pro-active enough lately, or the last couple of months. I think I’ve spent more of it catching up, because […]
