Yes, I survived another NaNoWriMo! I think my official word count was just over 52,000, which is the most I’ve done since joining the competition. The good news is that it definitely got me back in the swing of things. The bad news is that most of this will probably be scrapped because it’s just words– which is what NaNo is suppose to be.
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.
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?
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.”
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.
I’ve been watching the Unsung marathon for the past few days and I’ve been trying to decide which should be this week’s choice. But while cleaning up my YT favorites playlist, I remembered this. So I present to you my theme song. Enjoy!
Biggie was and still remains my favorite hip-hop artist. His 1st album, Ready to Die, was my 1st CD purchase. I was so excited the day I went to Sam Goody (really dating myself here!) and bought it. And I got the explicit version too! So much for those warning labels. This was my favorite song on the album, so enjoy!
What was your 1st CD?
Love this song, but growing up, I couldn’t understand a word Michael McDonald was singing! It wasn’t until recently I found out that I wasn’t alone lol.
In honor of the upcoming Ghostbusters movie, Halloween and it being #tbt, here’s one I really enjoyed growing up. I haven’t heard this song in so long.
I’m back from Nijicon and getting back into the groove of things (upcoming holidays) with work, so I’ll be back with a proper update tomorrow (hopefully!).
