Bringin’ it Back

April 25, 2010 1 comment

yeaaahhhh boy!!! My friends and I have decided to bring these babies back! Many a plenty having been going green lately and using other sources of transportation and such to help with the ecosystem. A popular option has been a bicycle. And so I figured, why wouldn’t roller blades work also? So yes, we purchased them for under $50 at Target, and made a fun day out of it! I have a recruited a few other friends so very very soon my girlfriends and I can be just like this~!!

haha. It’s a great workout and a good time! Anyone else own a pair and wanna join me??? I’m hoping to go roller blading every Saturday morning 🙂

Speak It

“Kid Nothing vs the Echo Factor” – Gym Class Heroes
Now I could sit here and baffle you
With shallow babble
And a bunch of punch lines
You probably won’t get
Or even use some big words
That you’d have to look up
But, I’m not a teacher
So go ahead and close your book up
I could tell a fairy tale so convincing
And keep a straight face from beginning
To happy ending
I could waste 32 bars telling you how to live
Knowing damn well I used mtv cribs for the blueprint
I could bore you to death with my past relationships
Or a little ditty bout Jack and Dianne
Or I could go back to childhood
Dig up them skeletons
And spit them at you with a catchy hook
Look, I could strike a nerve with some four letter words
That’ll make Richard Pryor proud
Or better yet, I could sing a jingle that’ll contort and mingle
Every single solitary letter in the alphabet

(I could tell you whatever you want to hear
But if I just said hello would you listen to me?
I could sell a blind man new ears
If I just said hello would you listen to me?
I’m trying hard trying to make it perfectly clear
But I’m dying because their aint nobody listening to me
Been relying on myself on myself for more than 22 years
And I aint crying I just need someone to listen to me
Can I get some reply get maybe some kind of sign
To let me know that you’re listening to me?
Just from time to time I get lost in my mind
Its hard to find someone to listen to me
My ears were open when you needed some consoling
I’m hoping till the sound you hear echoes
Every time I say hello)

I could talk about my duds
And my thrift store scores
But that probably wouldn’t interest you
But why should it
I mean, I’ve seen a lot of shit in 22 years
But your feet in my shoes isn’t something I recall
And I’ve been known to drink 22 beers
Before a show ’cause
Otherwise I probably wouldn’t have the balls
I could make references to books I never read
For the sake of sounding conscious
But, that’s just obnoxious
I could take off these bandages and
Expose these papercuts
And put them in the air
With both my middle fingers up
Or talk about myself in third person
Like I’m better than you
’cause there’s nothing else better to do
I could attack your character from
Eighty different angles
Cleverly explaining exactly how wack you are
But why do that when it’s a well known fact
You buying this cd is potentially feeding me
(come on)

(I could tell you whatever you want to hear
But if I just said hello would you listen to me?
I could sell a blind man new ears
If I just said hello would you listen to me?
I’m trying hard trying to make it perfectly clear
But I’m dying because their aint nobody listening to me
Been relying on myself on myself for more than 22 years
And I aint crying I just need someone to listen to me
Can I get some reply get maybe some kind of sign
To let me know that you’re listening to me?
Just from time to time I get lost in my mind
Its hard to find someone to listen to me
My ears were open when you needed some consoling
I’m hoping till the sound you hear echoes
Every time I say hello)

Hello, is there anybody out there?
Hello, is there anybody out there?
Hello, is there anybody out there?
Hello, is there anybody out there?
Hello, is there anybody out there?

Respect, Respect

“Now these ladies is lookin pretty from city to city
I refined a few I met, around the country
The nitty gritty, it’s all reality, no question
Actual fact like tight jeans cause yeast infections
And sisters with good minds, get no respect when
Their ass is all hangin out, playin the bar section
of the club shake what your mama gave ya, back to the lab
I drop the truth, cause rhyming is more than just my craft
Or a way to get ass, or fast cash, or blasted

Black women, make sure you’re respected
When niggaz is kickin that old off the wall shit, let em know
from jump: “Dead it”, you’re not ignorant
Knowledge wisdom understanding is the key to wealth
Put some clothes on that ass if you respect yourself

With those hooker type wears hon you’re, playin yaself
With those skin tight jeans baby you’re, playin yaself
Everything all exposed you’re, playin yaself
You’re, playin yaself, you’re, playin yaself

Everything all exposed you’re, playin yaself
With those skin tight jeans baby you’re, playin yaself
With those hooker type wears hon you’re, playin yaself
You’re, playin yaself, you’re, playin yaself”

So Mouf Peace recently wrote a blog piece about being Miss. Understood. And it got me thinking, how all of the things she said were very true. Of coarse of all people I should not be one giving relationship advice or anything of the sort, I’m going to just put her post in here, hope she doesn’t mind!


I may ask for alone time, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want u in my life.
I may want to have girl days, but u’d be the only man I spend my nights with.
I may deny ur help sometimes, but I am still more than grateful that u offered.
I may not be afraid to speak my mind, but I won’t be afraid to tell you I love you either.
And I may not need u in my life, but what matters is I want u to be.”

This was in regards to women being independent, and not needing anyone to support her. But in reality, how Abigail said everything, was the pure truth for me personally. Why would I choose not to have someone to be there for me, someone I can lean on and rely on? Yes I am putting myself in the most vulnerable state of soul and mind, but in the end, if I wasn’t ready for that, why would I even do it in the first place?All of this may sound like pure selfishness, wanting the man to do everything for me, or sound like something I want for pure convenience, but that is far from the truth.

A woman should always do what she wants done to her for her man. When a man puts himself in to a relationship, he should be willing to open himself up to his girl, and let her be there for him. So that is what he is allowing us to do, letting us in. So we should take advantage of that. Make him feel special, needed, wanted, and that it has to be him, and we don’t want it to be someone else.

Remember Me

March 23, 2010 1 comment

I went and watched Remember me last evening. So of coarse I went because 1. Robert Pattinson guilty pleasure… haha. But what really caught my attention was that on the commerical for the movie they featured the song “Breathe Me” by Sia. And I was absolutely in love with that song when it first came out.

This was not what I thought it was going to be, at all. From beginning to end I did not really have too much of an idea of how the film was going to be, but there was a lot of different stories going on, and in the end I just came out so shocked. I really don’t want to ruin the movie for anyone who might read this… but it was a sad film. And I thought Robert Pattinson’s acting was much better in this film then in the Twilight movies, so kudos to him. The little girl who plays Caroline (Ruby Jerins) is simply adorable in this film. I won’t go into much more then that. And Allie (Emilie de Ravin) was wonderful as well.

I don’t know what to think of it, but I am glad I saw it. It would not be a good thing for me to say I liked the film, but I guess I can state that I appreciate it.
