Walgreens Celebrates Black History

My e-friends over at Leon Says caught this lovely tribute to Black History Month at Walgreens. When I originally say this pic, I tilted my head and stared at the screen for a moment trying to understand WHY Jumbo Cotton Balls would be appropriate tribute. Maybe I should be happy that the display wasn't a skillet, watermelon, Shake-n-Bake, Colt 45 - you see where I'm going with this. I don't appreciate this at all. Who ever do this could have post that sign over so many other things - a wrench, pressure cooker, pencil sharpner, fire extinguisher. Because all the things were invented by African American and I'm sure Walgreens sells these things as well.

Politics: Yes We Can

Sorry about all the Youtube videos and the political chat. Well actually I'm only feel bad about all the Youtube videos. This is a historical election, and people are not shy about getting involved and sharing their opinions. Although I am not 100% on who will get my vote on Super Tuesday (New York Stand UP!!), I do see this video as a beautiful and powerful statement in support of Obama. Normally I find celeb packed endorsements kinda chessy and obnoxiously directed to younger voters. BUT this one was well done and very powerful. I'm kinda waiting on Hillary's version cause you know it's coming.

Maya Angelou Supports Hillary

Interesting?...Maya Angelou singing the praises of Hillary Clinton?... I wonder if Oprah knows about this?
There also a Quincy Jones Support video as well.

Rants: Atlah Preacher

I'll have to admit I'm mildly obsessed with this Harlem minister. I DO NOT agree with him in any way, but I'll be damned if he isn't the live action version of Uncle Ruckus. Pastor James Manning has been on a campaign against Obama because Black People have struggled too hard have a Black man as a leader. Yep, Pastor Manning said that and you can watch here CLICK. Actually if you have a moment take a glance at some of the Atlah World video collection. Pastor Manning repeated criticizes Obama for having a White Mama and suggest that Obama needs to go back to Africa. There is also quite a few Dis Video for other mainstream Preachers. The Creflo Dollar video is my favorite.

Vanilla Ice Cream

The Micheal Jackson Remix was priceless.... Allegedly!!

News: Man Fights off Attacks & Good Samaritan

A New York Transit worker walking home after a late shift, was mugged my 3 hoodlums. However, Maurice Parks fought back. He managed to stab one of the muggers with his own knife, and unfortunately Parks also stabbed a man who seemed to be a good Samaritan trying to help stop the robbery. Full Story
. I know this guy!! Maurice Parks, I meet him last year on the train. I was rushing to catch the train, so I did what most people do when trying to catch train - I stuck my arm in the door. Maurice was the conductor that proceeded to close the train door on my arm. I gave him attitude, he opened the train doors and started flirting with me. Well anyway we chit chated after that, I did my usual find his flaws routine and decided to stop checking for him. Maurice is like a health and fitness fanatic - this would never work. I remember he gave me some speech about being physically clean and not eating meat. The whole time I'm thinking - BBQ ribs and Daiquiris would be "GREAT RIGHT NOW". So, turns out this guy is a third degree black belt, and gangsta as HELL. I heard on the news that back in the 90's Maurice was getting robbed at gunpoint, and TOOK the gun from that mugger and SHOT homeboy with his own gun. I'm kinda glad Maurice and myself did take it to that level. He would have had a bad dream and messed me up in the middle of the night.
But I must that it was tragic that the good guy trying to help lost his life. God Bless.

Music: Hope & Jazmine Sullivan

I might be late (or early) to some, but I'm sharing some new people that I am feeling. Put your candles and bubble bath listening ears on. These are both in the grown-n-sexy category.
<< Hope - I first heard one of her song on of all places Perez Hilton. (Imagine that!!) And I fell in Love!! Her song Who am I to say is so sweet and personal. Just a guitar and simple vocals always gets me. Apparently this song was on the soundtrack to "Why Did I Get Married?" *crickets*
Here are the Links: Who Am I to Say- Listen

>>Jazmine Sullivan is19 with a Grown voice and apparently been on the music scene for a while now. What I like about her most is that she isn't scared to sing. A lot of people do that talk singing (which annoys me) so that it will get those pop radio spin. But every once in a while we need to hear some of that old school R&B flavor. Jazmine's song that I'm feeling is In Love With Another Man. (I really want to leave this song on some one's voicemail but that would be childish). Again with the links:
In Love with Another Man - Listen & Jazmine's Myspace.

Happy New Year!!!

New Years is definitely one of my top 3 holiday. Its all about new beginnings and celebrating life. I did get shyt faced and lets just say I took a "nap". I got my first booty call for the year. It's ignorant, but it makes me feel special that I tops of someone list :o)
Oh and here's a thought: Slaves were granted their freedom by the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1st, 1863. That's means us darkies in American have been free for less than 150 years. Let that marinate.

Rants: Dude Pull Down Ur Skirt - Ur Panties R Showing

I hate when men a like chicken heads!!
Late at night I hear my phone ringing. I don't even look to see who calling because I chillin' and about to go to bed. Then it rings again. Nope still didn't answer it. Then my cell rings for the 3rd time. Clearly, whoever is calling thinks I'm a sleep and wants to wake me up. It might be an emergency so I answer:
Male: oh you got a new boyfriend or something why aren't you answering my calls?
S.K. : *rolls eyes*
I grew up with enough iggnant ass men to know, Don't answer no bytchs questions. So I change the subject, until he calms down and we get off the phone amicably. The guy live a few hours away, and lives with his girl. HE IS NOT MY MAN. And truthfully I'm NOT checking for him. So....WTF IS HE DOING??
My main problem with his phone calls was that it was done out of pure HATE!! If I'm not your chick and you think I'm laid up with the next dude, why would you try to blow up MY SPOT??!!

Stalking: Keston Karter

I took this picture of my new Big Daddy this morning, when I left bed with a big smile on my face :oP But since I'm not selfish I decided to share this sexy Trini with you guys. Btw Trinis and Yardies have great chemistry - just thought I'd put that in there. Any way..... Lawd its hard to focus right now..... Umm yeah so he lives in New York as he's pursuing in modeling/acting career and he's also a talent musician. Ya'll I can't front, I'm soo distracted right now. Would I smash? YES and that all we need to know. Here's his Official Website and his MySpace. Do what you need to.

p.s. On his site he say he single and dating >> basically ladies there's a high chance of fukkability here :o)

Music: Big Lou - Stop Hittin Me

It's cold in NY and I'm scared to go outside, so I checking out one of my fav blogs and I stop by NahRight. There's a video from a person I never heard of with no features from T-Pain, Akon or DJ Khalid, but some how I managed to click play. This song - I don't really want to call it hot because of the subject but it HAWT in that REAL LIFE kinda way. If Tupac would have made a song about domestic violence - this would it. I don't really want to make that comparison but that's the best why I can describe it.

Rants: Pick those balls off the floor first

Do you ever have a moment of pure genius? Where you say something so profound that you must bask in your own greatness well? Well I had that moment today. *pause so that the light of humility my shine down on me* There were a few men talking about saggy tittayballs, and I could sense women tensing up, and I blessed the world with my version of truth & reality....
...some of you men can swing those droopy ballz over your shoulders, but you
don't hear the ladies talking.

People we need to get over the idea that people need to have a perfect body to be sexy. NO ONE is airbrushed perfect in real life. And if they are guess what? They're either going to be completely F**Ked in the head or out of your price range/totally not interested in you.

Peace & Blessing.

Music: Syleena Johnson

Syleena Johnson - I Am Your Woman
I can't even recall the mental process that brought me back to this song. Digging in the mental crates is no joke!! I really did have big homes for Syleena Johnson when she first came, and I love this song. R. Kelly wrote/produced it back before we knew how gross his as way. So enjoy the flashback or maybe I hipped you to something new. :o)
