Happy Valentine’s Day guys! I know that most of y’all celebrate it everyday– if you even celebrate it at all– but have a great day regardless. In the words of Dan Savage, Fuck first!
This means before you go out to that fancy restaurant or to that show, get all of the boning out in the beginning. Because after that night out, you just may be too tired to bump pelvises.
Anyways, here’s one of my favorites from the late Gerald Levert. Enjoy!
I’d planned a Bonne Année post, complete with stuff I’d accomplished last year and with this year’s resolutions. And then, I looked at the calendar and saw what today was.
I recently saw an Unsung episode on Chanté Moore and I was reminded about how often I used to sing this song growing up. In fact, I was a big fan of hers and I’m ashamed to admit that I fell off. So, me and iTunes got reacquainted with her music.
Apologies that this post is a little late in the day, but I really wanted to get one posted despite all the busy work I had earlier today. I was going to make a Brian McKnight post, and then realized what today is; Michael Jackson was born on this day in 1958. I know my friend Billie has been BLASTING MJ all day– she’s his biggest fan.
I’ve been sitting here trying to figure out my favorite MJ song, and I don’t really think I have one. I mean, I love this song, and Smooth Criminal, and Thriller, and Human Nature… So I guess it’s safe to say that I pretty much almost all of his songs then. Funny thing, I don’t have any of his vinyls… So that’s another thing I’ve gotta add to the list of “Stuff I wanna buy”.
(I’ve got so many lists in my phone it’s ridic but that’s another post).
New job starts in a week, my mom is getting adjusted to London and my nephew was born a few days ago! So simcha all around! Gonna pop out to visit him now, so until next post!
Been on a 90s music kick all week so I thought to end it with this number. Apologies for the silence on this blog, I’ve been very busy with life in general.
I haven’t been here in a while– been very busy with my day job, finding a new job, and battling a summer cold. I’m taking a different allergy medication and it’s helping my asthma, so I’m happy to have my voice back. I’ve got some voice over stuff I’ve gotta get back to.
Anyways, I haven’t heard this song in a minute so enjoy!
No lie, for the longest time I had no idea that she was in a trash bag that was being pumped up. Honestly, I didn’t know what the hell she was in, lol!
Beep, beep. Who got the keys to the Jeep? What’s your favorite Missy or Timbaland song?
Man I miss The Fugees. They had a presence and chemistry that very few groups nowadays can match.
My week was infused with some goodness right at the very beginning. Yesterday I’d received news that I’m going to be an aunt! I’m super excited to meet my nephew later this year, and I actually got some writing done yesterday as well. I’ve been playing with the idea of writing a tv pilot, so I mapped out some notes and the beginnings of an outline. We’ll see how it goes.
In pressing news, I’ve got a semi-deadline from my publisher on my newest chapter of my novel, so I hope I don’t disappoint. I’ve got to make sure I set aside some days to write it out. Hope your week is infused with some creative goodness!
I’ve had the biggest crush on Raphael Saadiq for the longest time, and used to listen to Tony, Toni, Toné all the time while growing up. When he went solo, this was my favorite song of his. I hope one day to meet him, and try not to fangirl too much on him!
While I wasn’t able to make it to Wondercon this year, I still took some days off from work and it was very relaxing. I’d managed to get a lot organized, and found more scripts to download and read. Today’s for working on my pilot script. I’ve got a bunch of ideas, just got to put them in some sort of order.
What are you guys working on this week?
I’d recently bought a book from Barnes and Noble called 300 Writing Prompts, and the first one was, “Write down your favorite ways to spend a lazy day.”
