#musicMonday ~ The Fugees

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!

#musicMonday ~ Raphael Saadiq

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?

#throwbackThursday ~ Method Man

When I first heard this song, I was in middle school. And I’m sure it was due to my sheltered upbringing, but I had no idea what they were talking about. What I knew is that all the girls in my grade wanted to be as fly as Mary J. Blige.

I remember watching a show on MTV– back when they did actual reporting on music– and some exec wanted Lauryn Hill to sing the hook on this song. But Lyor Cohen [president of Island Def Jam Music Group] was like “…nah.” I think Mary J.’s vocals are the best for this song anyways.

Whoa, December already?!

Bye-bye November –or Movember– hello, December!

I can’t believe that it’s December already– time has really flown by this year. No seriously– anyone else feel like this year has just completely flown by? Feels like it was just September, I sneezed and now it’s December.

I completed another NaNoWriMo challenge and my draft is utter trash. But then again, it’s suppose to be. Besides writing and working, I’ve been looking at some other projects to consider, which I’m really excited about. I’m getting into the habit of doing yoga everyday. I’ve been doing it for a couple of months, but it hasn’t been everyday. I’m 2 days in so I’m hoping to keep it up. Not too much, but at least Sun Salutation everyday.

I’m aiming that 2016 will be as productive, if not more, as this year. I’ve got a couple of interviews for the blog coming up this week so stay tuned!

 

#musicMonday ~ Ol’ Dirty Bastard: Brooklyn Zoo

NSFW! 

Sharing this because ODB’s birthday had passed about a couple of days ago. Growing up, I wasn’t allowed to listen to this, or anything else that had curse words or sexual language in it so you can call me a late bloomer when it came to Wu-Tang. As I get more comfortable in my creative self, I appreciate OBD a little more as an artist. Shame we won’t get to see what he could have created had he survived. Rest well Russell Jones.
