Ant-Man Movie Review


I liked this movie more than I was initially expected to.

L.A.S.E.R.S. Manifesto By Lupe Fiasco

Sandra Bland By Jesse Williams


Some thoughts on #SandraBland & millions of Americans exhausted by paid servants destroying instead of defending lives. And those reflexively parroting weak slogans; squealing for violence & murder from behind a centuries-old wall of perfectly visible privilege. This country is FULL of Americans who actively exercise their rights when given unlawful, unclear orders by police. Refusing to roll down windows, present ID, hand over assault rifles, answer ANY questions, etc. THEY are lauded as heroes; patriots. Message boards swell w/ Police being ridiculed & laughed at by this Patriot-Class of Americans. Without fail, when select Americans exercise their rights, message boards FILL w praise for the resisting citizen & mockery of police. An entire political party [re]constructed loudly claiming to RESIST "gov't tyranny" while actively CELEBRATING [certain] gov't tyranny! A select segment of Americans are granted the privilege of being able to resist said tyranny, scream at it, punch, shove or elude it. 

Rumors vs. Reality


It's always funny to hear what people think of you versus what you know of yourself. Some of the things that I've heard about myself recently can be best described as being slight ludicrous and outlandish. Now most people that I know in real life don't read my blog, and I'm glad they don't at this point, so clarifying some of these things won't be such an annoyance to me. I mean I don't really have to, but some of the stuff is just like "come on dude, seriously?" type levels. Which also brings me to the point of wondering how some people can even come up with these conclusions if they have so much going on with their life? Someone told me a long time ago that when people know less and less about what's going on with your life, the more they will try to take a peak in and see a glimpse of what's going on, and when they do that, they will run with what they have and make up a grand story. I always thought that was just a saying and that people didn't really do that, but boy how wrong I was in thinking that. Well rather I should say that I was pretty naive for majority of my life lol.

The Haunting By Lupe Fiasco

#BlackLivesMatter?


In lew of one Stephen A. Smith's comments on twitter that sent it in an uproar the other day, I just feel compelled to share my utter disbelief at the lack of common sense on the matter, especially from those who SHOULD know how important the movement is for OUR people.

Ted 2 Movie Review




This movie was just like the first one to me, a couple of lines here and there, but ultimately nothing to really hype.

Terminator Genisys Movie Review


The soul reason why I keep watching this movie is because I want to see the series end.

When A Star Fades ..



I’m not a girl trying to be a star,
I'm just a girl that sings.

Lesson From Hip-Hop, Vol. 1


Hip-hop taught a lot of us a lot of things growing up if you listen to the content of the song. That's why a lot of music is getting so criticized because it's not really a message to a lot of songs that are coming out. You pretty much find a nice beat and just dance around or just have something to listen to when you go to the club. That's why I tend to listen to a lot of songs that came out in the 90's because there's a lot of content in the songs that came out around that time frame. One of the songs that I listen to a lot lately is the Ten Crack Commandments by The Notorious B.I.G

Somewhere, somehow, we lost our way.

H.E.R., Part V | The Ex-Factor



We look for love, no time for tears
Wasted waters all that is
And it don't make no flowers grow
Good things might come to those who wait
Not to those who wait too late
We got to go for all we know
- Bill Withers

I miss my ex.

#1GottaGo, Vol. 1


So over the course of the past couple of days there was a trend on twitter called 1 Gotta Go, this is where a person has to choose between three to four things to eliminate one thing from their life forever. Of course there was a couple of corny ones and ones that were pretty unnecessary, but I did find out that the trend actually originated with Eclectik Relaxation's 1 Gotta Go site. I like the site better because you can actually vote on each one, and there were a couple that I was surprised with that were in the lead.

Oh The Love


So here is the truth about my blog, no one I know personally really supports it lol.

Whew! Movie Lineup


I probably should be getting paid to do movie reviews based on all of the movies I watch lol. I typically sit down and plan out my month as best as I can in terms of financial and things that I have coming up. One of the things that I take into account is going to the movies, while most people plan to go out to the club and drinks and all of that stuff, I don't. I don't go out to the clubs or bars anymore, so the thing that takes all of my time besides my blog is going to the movies. I was sitting down and I was looking at the rest of July and August in terms of planning for movie, then I started looking into subsequent months, all th way into next year. I realized that pretty much every single weekend is going to be some kind of movie coming out, or multiple movies in one weekend that will stretch me into a week with a movie coming out that I don't want to see.

The Renaissance


I will be the first to admit that I never read any of Necole's blogs because celebrity news & gossip typically doesn't do it for me. I knew nothing of her background or anything of the sort, so when I saw her latest post RT'ed onto my Twitter TL with the headline: "This is probably the most difficult thing I’ve ever had to do", I automatically clicked the link because I already knew what it was about. When you're a writer, no matter the level you are on, you just know that key words and phrases mean certain things, and when I saw that line I just knew she was hanging it up. But what came shortly there after the opening first two lines, I honestly didn't expect or see coming.

Justice Now


We have two evils to fight, capitalism and racism.
We must destroy both racism and capitalism.

The Man Fast Blog Series Review


So one day I was just cruising my twitter feed looking for blogs to check out, and what came across my TL was a blog entitled The Man Fast, and of course when I saw it I was curious as to what it entailed. Now I'm not going to lie to you, when I saw the tittle, I really thought it was going to be another man bashing post, but I've seen how the author @whoisamberjanae interacts with her TL and from her blog she seemed like a pretty well rounded woman, who's done some extraordinary things. Before I get into the whole review of the blog series, here are the links for each entry in the series and I implore you to read it before you continue, especially if you're one of my female readers:

Cindy Rainne Interview


So there's this little lady that I've known since 2007 & I'm really humbled that she allowed me to interview her.

6 Year Blogiversary


So it's been about six years since I've been on blogger, about a year since I changed the name & about twelve years since I actually started blogging all together. I guess you can say that this is my third re-brand if you can include my first two incarnations of my blog. But my Blogversary is strictly for this blog with it being around since 2009. I'll be the first to admit that before 2014 my blog was just around with me posting every now and then, with no real goal or aim for my blog other than a place to vent my frustrations. It wasn't until late 2014 that I hit my actual stride when it came to writing. To this day I'll say that stretch is still my greatest periods for this blog. I produced some very nice pieces that are still being bought up til this day by people who come to my blog randomly.

Spy Movie Review



This movie was hilarious, and I was not expecting it to be.

2015 Posting Schedule


I made a promise to blog five times out of the week for the whole year, and so far I've kept true to that word. Below is the complete list of blogs that I've written and the guest posts that are featured with the days that I've published them on. So in case you missed anything, here they all for you. What I'm going to do is update this post so that you have each month at the end of the month so you can catch up, instead of posting it six months now, I think that would be better for you guys. I really hope you enjoy!

The 4th of July Blog



America will never be destroyed from the outside.
If we falter and lose our freedoms, 
It will be because we destroyed ourselves.

I was having trouble writing this blog for a multitude of reasons.
