Happy Valentine’s Day 2018

Happy Valentine’s Day 2018

Have I ever told you that I like all of the holidays? So of course I love Valentine’s Day too! Not because of the materialistic elements that have been incorporated into most of the holidays. No, I love that there are specific days where we are encouraged to have fun, celebrate, and spend invaluable time with people we like. With that in mind, I want to tell you all… well it’s in the title. Although today, being Valentine’s Day, also marks the how-ever-many-thousandth anniversary of a certain somebody’s massacre (which I read that some bitter jerk face decided to try Read more »

RSI 101 – Black Love: Part 1

RSI 101 – Black Love: Part 1

This is probably going to be a really long piece for a lot of reasons. I want to talk about love, about relationships, about being black in relationships (aka Black Love)… and further, after having done a recording wherein I barely touched on everything I want to say tells me that this needs to be a 2, maybe even 3 part discussion.  I have a feeling that some of my readers/listeners are going to feel alienated because much of this is going to be Black People specific, but remember, its Black history month, I’m Black, and as far as I’m concerned, some Read more »

But what if…

But what if…

But what if I make a mistake? What if they all laugh at me? What if they don’t understand? How can I be sure I’m doing it for the correct reasons? I’ve heard a story and I want to share it with you. There was a rabbi who was leading a group of people in some task. The people were doing what they were told. The deed was a good one, but the people doing it grew concerned about how they would later be judged for their deeds. They worried aloud about the image they portrayed in accomplishing their task.

Main characters and Misanthrophes.

Main characters and Misanthrophes.

Main characters and Misanthrophes. Madness tends to occur around my neck of the woods in odd spurts. So like last week I’m taking a break from my usual ranting to say something far more relaxed. And let’s start with a simple question. Do you like people? Now I don’t mean this in a condescending manner, or even in a sexual manner. I mean when you look at the people around you, do you find yourself enjoying the existence of other human beings around you generally speaking? It’s a tough question. And the answer gets to a deeper idea which I Read more »

Pick your poison.

Pick your poison.

We are all going to die. Every person you know, love, hate, meet, talk to, read about, see on tv, watch on your lunch break, and have any interaction with whatsoever will die. Sucks to hear right? Well don’t let it. The thing about human life is this surity that it will end. We’ve yet to find some means of transcending the human condition whereby our physical bodies pass into some altered state of being which may dodge the ravages of time. So faced with our inevitable demise what do we do? Well the enterprising among us fill the time Read more »

Be A Better You Without Beyonce

Be A Better You Without Beyonce

So I’m back, but be patient with me because life is taking a sudden turn! Some things are the same some things are very DIFFERENT! But that’s not what I wanna discuss today. Not about me today! Achievements. Competition. A Better You! Sounds like some motivational crap that I might just burst into outrage or advice about…and that may happy. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I write and post just as the thoughts are reaching me and my fingers! Well, I picked up this new thing where I say, “right?” after every statement I make. It’s so annoying Read more »

Weddings, Reunions, Dental vists, and SHAKE UPS!

Weddings, Reunions, Dental vists, and SHAKE UPS!

So you may have noticed someone has been missing a lot lately. You may have even noticed when he goes missing he doesn’t always explain why. Well…yeah no real explanation, sorry for that.   In other news I have been gone meeting old friends, getting massive dental work, and being best man in a wedding. Shout out to Superfans Chris and Ania Moncrief(aka Superman and Lois Lane) who celebrated their love in the classiest of weddings this past weekend.   But that Shakeup word is here again for good reason.    Things are about to get interesting. Not only has Read more »
