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 »

Ruthless As The 4th Of July: America’s uniquely perfect imperfection

Ruthless As The 4th Of July: America’s uniquely perfect imperfection

I admit that is a weighty title. But I promise you this. This blog post will either make you love me(as a blogger) even more than you already do. Or it will most assuredly make you hate me more than you did before you started. You’ve been warned, IKUZO(let’s go)! America’s uniquely perfect imperfection I was wrestling with the idea of doing a post for the 4th of July.

Before you Protest: Why the SCOTUS decision today isn’t going to end up as bad as you think.

Before you Protest: Why the SCOTUS decision today isn’t going to end up as bad as you think.

Before you protest, and before I get started. I want to stress that this post has no affiliation with or is made as a course of any associations with any organizations I have at any point in my life been a member of. Not Palestine Missionary Baptist Church of Jesus Christ. Not Jack And Jill of America Incorporated. Not the NAACP. And not National Black Law Students Association or Phi Alpha Delta or The American Association for Justice. Or ANY OTHERS! I say that because I know full well that what I am about to say is incendiary, and furthermore Read more »

Before this turns into a rant…

Before this turns into a rant…

Before this turns into a rant… I’ve said that phrase a ton of times before. And so have a few of my favorite pundits, journalists, bloggers, and generally opinionated friends. I normally use it to get some salient cohesive objective point in before the rage takes over and I start consuming things. One of the facets of civilized society that normally draws such ire that I have to use this phrase is the arts. Movies, theater, television, literature, music, and the like(admittedly I’m not much on deep art conversations). Often I find myself saying “Before this turns into a rant Read more »

Entertainment and You

Entertainment and You

Entertainment and You Is entertainment a form of control used to keep us dumb? First let me say ‘get that tone out of your voice’. This is not a conspiracy theory that I’m stating here, though really i could see how it would all tie into the evil plot used by those shadow organizations to keep the masses in line. No what i’m suggesting is something simpler, but the meaning carries the same weight, if not heavier. Take a list of your favorite TV shows, the ones that you watch faithfully. The ones that you record, watch on NETFLIX, HULU and random Read more »

Motivation versus Inspiration

[youtube=http://youtu.be/uFaz2GN8FKY] The above video has nothing to do with today’s post, I just felt like posting it.

First up Our good buddy Roddi was slated to join us with a post over here soon, however a great set of opportunities have come up for him with his music career.
