WACK FRIDAY- Lil' Kim and Nicki Minaj's Ridiculous "Beef"

Reactions: 
Honestly, I hate to even go here because I'm already tired of talking about the "beef" between Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj. But we're already there, and I find the topic relevant if nothing else. I also find it to be a great dialogue starter for female solidarity and empowerment (in this case, with regards to black females).

Allow me to go in (I think I'm running with this by the way, 'cause clearly I goes IN)....

I Just Calls 'Em How I See 'Em - Midterm Elections

Reactions: 
Rewind to November 2008.  Barack was running for office. Running around town (and by town I mean the whole country of course) talking about a change we could believe in. I was fired up more than a little bit. Rushing home from work to catch MSNBC's nightly line up. First Hardball with Chris Matthews, then Countdown with Keith Olberman, and then finally Rachel Maddow. At that point, you couldn't tell me that I couldn't have had my own show on MSNBC.  I was so well versed on the issues that I could do more than hold an intelligent conversation. Not to mention the passion that I felt and the hope that I had. I was out there in DC on the mall, freezing my butt off just so I could be a part of history. I was and I'm glad. But emotions can only take you so far.

It's Not That You Don't Hear Me; It's Just That You're Not Heeeeeere With Me.

Reactions: 
You have 2 ears and 1 mouth for a reason. Use them! - Somebody's Mama

Have you ever been talking to someone, explaining a point with all your might?  Pulling out all the stops and you just get nothing? Crickets?? Can you honestly say that this occurrence is not one of the most annoying things ever? It's like, "Really?" "Are you that dumb?". Just kidding...but seriously though, I hate trying to explain myself and my message just continuously gets lost in translation. Especially when it comes to dealing with the opposite sex...

What Has Your "Potential" Done for Me Lately?

Reactions: 
"A woman often marries a man for his potential.  If women actually married men for who they were, there would be far less marriages." - Unknown

The other day I was browsing through the blogs online and I saw a post on Nelly and Ashanti over at theybf.com.  Check out the post HERE.  In the post, the blogger, talks about the status of Nelly and Ashanti's relationship/non-relationship.  She had an issue with the state of their status. She said "I just feel some kind of way watching a chick support a dude at all his ish (and him at hers every now and then)...and they constantly try feed us the okie doke.  And, even worse...it makes Ashanti look some type of way when even after years, a man not only doesn't claim you, but he publicly disclaims you. Just had to get that off my chest."  Ok.  There are so many things wrong with that statement.  If you'll notice, I bolded some key words.  Allow me to go in...

Mazeltov!? What's Good? Que Paso? Do You Wear Your Culture Proudly?

Reactions: 
Happy Monday Fine Folks!  Hope everyone had a great weekend!  If not, make next weekend better!

Speaking of weekends, mine was great.  Saturday I hit up a party at the Empire Hotel.  Nothing to write home about but it felt good getting out in the city.  It's so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of NYC and get bogged down with the routine of work and home, that days and weeks pass by and it's the same old, same old.  That's for the birds!  If you don't experience life, it'll just pass you by.

While we're on the topic of experiences, I experienced my first Orthodox Jewish wedding.  It was a blast!!!  Like seriously!  No offense to any other culture but I must say...not many people know how to party like Jews.  And by party...I mean PARTAAAAY!!  Click HERE to read more......

Not a "For Colored Girls" Review - Just an observation or two....

Reactions: 
First off: Happy Monday! This hale, sleet, whatever it is isn't necessarily the best start to the week, but it's a start nonetheless. I'll take it!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine? Well, it was good...if a little intense. Friday spent some time with 2 of my cousins. We went out for Thai Food in Cobblehill and then hit the Court street movie theatre in Brooklyn (a mess as usual but we were a lil pressed for time). Anywho, man that movie was intense.

So first off let me say, you can't go see a movie like "Precious" or "For Colored Girls" expecting a light romantic comedy like say "My Best Friend's Wedding". But if one did go into that movie with light expectations, I'm sure they were in for a rude awakening.  Click HERE to read more......
