Graffiti – Chris Brown’s Redemption Song

By at 24 December, 2009, 3:11 am

I’ll say it and I’m not ashamed to either: I listened to Chris Brown’s new album Graffiti and bought it in support of the man’s art.  I’m a music lover and I have an ear for quality and for crap and you have to give credit where credit is due — the sh*t is FIRE!! Alright, before […]

After I left work Wednesday, I went straight to the theater looking forward to seeing Michael Jackson’s This is It. Arriving an hour early so that I can pick my seat instead of being left with slim pickings was my goal. When I arrived to the theater I thought there would be chaos, but that […]


Angel Taylor – Lost in the Fog

Music is as subjective as ice cream, we all have a flavor that resonates with us, whether it’s deep rich chocolate blues or a nutty flavored Amaretto. I was assigned the task to review Ms. Taylor’s new album and at first I was hesitant — not wanting to say the “wrong” thing, but as I […]

For MJ When you got your assignment from the spiritual realm above, you took yours seemingly with no complaints – the cost of being a living version of love the slings and arrows of gross injustices and at times outweighed the patience that lived within your work would you do it all over again? If […]


Notorious: A Movie Review

By at 6 February, 2009, 1:36 pm

Every generation has their bad boy superhero, like a meteor, speeding through the sky blazing a trail for other like-minded individuals to follow behind . . . but at some point all meteors freefall, usually by their own doing. In the case of Christopher Wallace (aka The Notorious B.I.G.), his glory potential was cut down […]


Get It On

It is a slow day in the office and the weather is warm. I think I’m going to go out and actually sit at a restaurant for lunch.  One of my favorite pass times, when I’m not actually working at work, is perusing YouTube for funny videos. This one I found entertaining. [youtube Uqt3Zb7BItA nolink] […]
