Raphael Saadiq in Portland


Oh Mah Gawd!!

Raphael Saadiq
is going to be in Portland on March 6th at the Wonder Ballroom!!

The show starts at 9 pm.
If you haven't heard of this man, he's just released what I consider the best album of 2008...so now you know how I voted in my own poll, lol.

The pre-order for the tickets starts at 10 am this Friday the 30th (password: VERIZON)
and the general sales starts the next day (Sat 31st) at 10 am.

For more info on this show, go to
ticketmaster!

I'm gonna post some of his music so those of you who haven't heard him can see what all the fuss is about! His latest album "The Way I See It" is a 1960's themed album...like it sounds like it's strait up outa the 60's...better than Amy Whinehouse's attempts lol.


LISTEN TO HIM AND GO TO HIS SHOW!!! (I'll be there!)

People.....

Ok so I gotta get this out...

Does it ever seem like some people exist just to try n make you feel bad about yourself? Like their only purpose on this earth is to bring you down in some way cuz there couldn't possibly be any other explanation for the fact that they even breathe the same air as you? If people like this really exist, I'm pretty sure I ran into one this weekend lol...

Now, I'm not tryna be mean or bitter or wutever...in fact, I'm writing this so I don't turn bitter! So this person that I know (we'll call this person Angela...since I hate Angela's character on The Office) has gotten so far under my skin that just the mention of her name pisses me off. And you know wut? I don't even know how we got this way! All I know is one day, she started really making me feel bad about myself. And how fucked up is that? So, naturally, I cut her off.

BUT....even when I run into her, it's like she's got some kind of jedi mind shit goin, cuz sure enough, I start developing trillions of insecurities...and stupid ones too! Like "I'm broke..so I suck", or "There's dishes in my sink...so I suck", or "I'm moody...so I suck" lol...

SEE??? These are the dumbest most littlest most stupidest insecurities that I have managed to give this person complete control over!

Oh and that's not all about Angela...(btw, to my real cousin Angela, this is not you lol...jus in case u read this one) This b*tch (yes, I kno I don't use that word, but this is my one exception) is the biggest shit talker I know! So I guess that's another reason I let her get to me...poo literally flies out her mouth when she forms words, thats how much shit she talks lol.

I mean why do people like this even exist? And they somehow manage to turn others against you...which is even worse! But i guess anyone who gets turned by a shit-talker ain't worth the dust behind ur fridge neway lol...(like that analogy? I made it up lol. Cuz who thinks about the dust behind their fridge?)

Ok so I guess my point to all this is FUCK THE ANGELAs OF THE WORLD!! And if you've got an Angela in your life, DO SHARE in the comments section cuz I'd love to hear about her/him!
If you don't have one, more power to ya!

Meanwhile, I'll be remembering that nobody is worth me feeling bad about myself...in fact, I'll remember that all the dumbest most littlest most stupidest insecurities are just that!

Nobody's perfect,
everybody has dishes in their sink,
EVERYBODY's broke right now (damn economy),
and everybody gets moody sumtime...................

Now go clean that damn dust from behind your fridge!

Inauguration Day 2009




It's finally happened...Barack Hussein Obama is my president! For the first time in my life, I feel like I can claim the U.S. president as my own...I am proud to be an American citizen today.

As you all know from my earlier ranting, I'm broke lol....that means I don't have cable (or any TV stations except OPB...and who wants to watch that everyday
all day?). So, I missed most of the televised celebration today. I was in class at 8 am this morning and got to see the very end of Obama's speech, the poet, and the Benediction (which I ended up crying during lol)...

I felt so proud today! And I'm excited to watch this man grow as a leader and encourage real change in this society! I don't really know what else to say other than I am so so so so happy that

BUSH IS OFFICIALLY THE WORST PRESIDENT IN U.S. HISTORY AND HE'S GONE BACK TO TEXAS FOR GOOD!!!!


Out with the old





IN WITH THE NEW!!!

Update on Stripper Mom

Ok so here is a video of "Stripper Mom" trying to justify her previous video! I got this, again, from Happy Nappy Head
(an amazing blog that you should all follow).

I dunno how I feel about this response. She claims that she's a pole dance instructor and in no way teaching her child to be a stripper...hmmm....raise your hand if you believe that one! (there should be no hands raised at this time). I mean, if she's not teachin' the girl, then why have her anywhere near the pole or even mimicking her moves? I understand that mothers should teach their children about sexuality, but honestly, steering them in the direction of erotic dancing or anything of the sort when they could be social activists or doctors or anything else in the world...i dunno...seems kinda fishy to me! I will say that the woman clearly understands the implications of her video.
Well, I'll let you come to your own conclusions about it by giving you the response video!
I give you, Stripping 101 for Toddlers: The Backlash:

Is this what mothering has become?

So I found this video on a blog I follow called Happy Nappy Head
(an amazing blog, btw).
I just want to say that it breaks my heart to know that there are mothers who believe that sexualizing their toddler and adolescent children is good parenting. In fact, I have a family member who, over Christmas, thought it exciting that her 2-year old daughter could execute the new Chris Brown "coochie pop" while straddling the floor. I was mortified, to say the least. And you know, this isn't new to me! But it never stops being depressing when I see it.

So, ladies and gentlemen, I give you....Stripping 101 for Toddlers (that's what I'm calling it)

P.S.
PLEASE comment on this...I really want feedback!

Back On the Blogging Grind

HEY YALL!!!!

Sorry about the month long hiatus...life got kinda hectic what with Christmas and New Years and all...

But I'M BACK AND IN ACTION! (corny, I know)

So, how many people here hate money? (raise your hand)
I HATE MONEY! In fact, it's gotta be one of the most depressing aspects of life to me...money makes me sad, it makes me mad, it makes me feel like I can conquer the world when I have enough of it (which I never do). I can honestly say that me and Money have a love/hate relationship like no other.
I swear, I think banks are literally God's (or Goddess') way of saying "Aha! That's what you get! I'm gonna hold your money and charge you $35 when you go over your available balance by even one cent!" I hate banks! In fact, I'm gonna switch to a credit union!!
**breathe...just breathe**
Yes, I'm bitter...and broke, lol.

So I have a funny video to share from SNL! Has nothing to do with anything but it's funny so WATCH IT :)

P.S. I think I might name my child Freba after watching this thing lol
