Sweet Dreams are made of These.....

So, I'm stuck at the J.O.B. till eight. So my a$$ is gonna blog away.

Just recently, and when I say recently, I mean two seconds ago, just found out that two of my favorite movies as a child are about to be remade.

Sweet Sweet Victory!!!!

Nightmare on Elm Street


The Never Ending Story

Brains and Body.....

My paper is way over due, and I'm beyond proud of how I just put pen to paper once again and created a masterpiece of some sort.

And what I love most about it is how much of me is on those pages. Granted it's a academic/ scholarly paper, I still had the opportunity to do it my way or no way at all. Who would have ever thought?

It was soo cathartic to get that 'ish off my chest, finally!!!

Let's just hope it passes with flying colors ;-)

I Mean Really!!!!!

Have you ever found yourself asking why?

Why did I say that?

Why did I go there?

Why do I continue to make the same mistake?

I consistently ask that question when I see movies that just leaving me asking why? And not in a good way.

So, I've seen all of Tyler Perry's movies, minus one. And typically they're a hit or miss. But because of my own experience, you would have thought that I would have learned by now, not to have such high expectations when watching his movies.

In my opinion, "Why Did I Get Married?" is his best film to date.

It had the whole package. Comedy, slight action, and ton's of drama that not only carried such a heavy topic of marriage and fidelity, but carried it in such a humorous manner.

It left me wanting more.

So, with that said, "The Family that Prey's" left me asking, "What the F*ck" was I thinking?

And it wasn't the plot that had me going WTF, it was how it was delivered on screen. The concept was pure genius,yet there were instances I wanted to ask Tyler to just remove some of this $hit that was so unnecessary.

For those who have yet to see the movie... save your money for something worth spending it on.

Excuse me Miss...

It's a week and some change before I say hello to Miami...

Now, I must admit, this is my first time touching down in MIA and staying for more than an hour layover.

I'm hyped as hell and can't wait to get my vacation started.

I have a few things that I must get before I leave.

Such as...Club wear.

From what I've been told people enjoy partying in the skimpiest outfit they can find, or not find for that matter.

I however would like to put some eclectic ensembles together.

This is the one and only time I suggest coming up with a "signature".

A "signature" consists of one unforgettable theme that you're infamous for.

Betsey Johnson's skin cancer carrying braids. That's her thing,I sure as hell don't find that $hit cute, but hey, it works for her.

Karl Lagerfeld and his dark shades and driver gloves. That dude stay looking like he's going to Coco Chanel's funeral or something. But once again, it works for him.

And let's not forget Andre Leon, always rocking his turban chic head gear. I mean, that nicca has a turban piece made just for showering. It's crazy. But, once again, it works for him and that his signature, beside the bedroom slippers he thinks are kosher to wear outside.

Any who, signatures are the key to being remembered.

Point in case, my first year at Hofstra, before everyone decide to loc their damn hair and claim to be natural...

**insert side eye**

I was known as the girl with the golden locs. Hey, granted my name was of no importance, which I honestly prefer. But I was still a recognizable force.

What's ur signature 'Ma?

It's a Girl....

I enjoy when people try to typecast me, especially when it comes to fashion, and my personal style.

Fashion as well as sex are so fluid.

You wear what you feel.

Some days I enjoy the Angelina Jolie steelz, I'm just too damn sexy I just don't give a f*ck.

Other days, I want to be on the Chloƫ Sevigny steelz, the "I'm just straight back to the future."

Whichever day it may be, I dress to impress my mood, not the likes of people.

Summer Nights

I think I need some Respidol

It's sad and pathetic when you're 23 and you've had enough with corporate America.

I hate working beneath, side by side, or above people.

I'm not a people person. I'm an artist, with a vision and I just work and put things together effortlessly.

The things that come oh so Nat-ur-el to me, will someday turn into a full time career.
However, I don't want them to become mundane and then I just end up abandoning what I love the most.

It's a relief to jot down up and coming ideas.

It's splendid bliss when I can't find any paper and I resort to writing on napkins and stow them away for a rainy day.

It's adrenaline pushing when I see my future revolving around true artistry at it's finest and doing what I think is right for the gander.

I work off of two things. And common sense isn't one of them.

Sex and Aggression.

just plain 'ole instinct.

I came across this trailer, while movie hunting...

Here's an equation

(BladeRunner + 9 1/2 Weeks) x (Heat) = The Informers


What's Green & Red all Over????

It's official, Kanye West is a creative genius that we all must respect.

I say that, without hesitation because that man is willing to travel where no BLACK man has traveled before...

This conclusion evolved while peeping my regular blog line ups...Concrete, Toyas, LateBoots, etc.

They all had his video posted.

Let's face it, Kanye West's attitude is straight wack, however I must give respect where respect is due, Kanye is a Genius.

'Welcome to Heartbreak' is a fly song on it's own, but to put it into a visual masterpiece as he did, he just took it to next level.

People may clown him for the uncensored $hit that he says, yet have to give props because he's an artist through and through.

True artistry at it's best.

Kudos Mr. West, Kudos...

Nothing of true substance to blog about, yet, I've taken the time to put pen to paper.

So, it's Tuesday, and I'm wondering where the hell did my long weekend go?

Like, what the hell was I doing that I don't feel as if I had three days off and if I had, it flew by so quickly I can't remember it.

Oh yes, now I remember....

I was working.

I spent my weekend working hard as hell to get that money, because at some point and time, I'm gonna need that money for even greater endeavors, especially this summer.

The notion "you need money to make money" saddens me.

Money is the soul less devil that claims so many of us each and everyday.

Those who hold no crown to the dollar bill are subsequently the ones that can make a dollar last longer than a week.

Can survive on sheer luck and opportunity.

I mean, WTF, money holds the power, but those who can keep the money and actually perpetuate more are the ones that rule.

In short, there's a quite a difference between being rich and being wealthy.

Which one are you?

Open your surprises....

I don't know if it's the avocados and their omega 3's but my family is on the roll with the illest ideas, coming to venue near you.

We're just sick with it.

What's even more fascinating about it, is that I can't stand my family for more than a hour at a time.

My mother is golden.

My father is a mad scientist.

And I'm just teetering on insanity with the $hit I have planned for this summer.

All in due time kiddies.

When I say make all your hobbies profitable, I wasn't spitting that out for Kicks & Giggles.

I'm on that New New $hit.

Can't help myself.

I got a secret to share with ya....

Late at night, especially sundays, when no one's home....

I watch....

Get your mind out the gutter!!!!

I watch Masterpiece Theater, Jane Austen collection.

So my late nite creeping got me thinking about the things people do when no one is around.

You swear I get more middle age white woman by the minute.

Disgust and Disappointment

In the past 12 hours I've been on several Blogs checking up on the new information being provided about Rhi Rhi, and her Hit 'em and Leave 'em (ex)boyfriend Chris Brown.

Like the rest of you I'm nosy as hell and want to find out the play by play of what went down.

That's not to say that what I'm doing is kosher because in times like these I know that we should give people privacy, yet you can't help and not want to know what's going on.

But with the good comes the bad...

The amount of garbage that people are posting out there warranting this behavior from Chris Brown, and how Rhi Rhi deserved it because she may have passed along an STD, is just outrageous.


For the sake of my own blog, I'm not going to stoop so low as to repost the nonsense that has been said, but what I will post is when people believe that domestic violence is funny and believe people may have deserved it, is when I draw the line and say shame on you.

The pure ignorance and disgust of fellow females who say that it must have been her fault and that she was asking for it is just utterly foolish and just plain stupid. That $hit may be alright in your household to hit a woman, but where I'm from, that $hit doesn't happen, and if it does, best believe someone is not going to see the next day.

Regardless of who started it and what was said, there is ABSOLUTELY no reason to resort to throwing blows at each other, and that goes for both Rhi and Chris.

Please speak on it....

Two out of Three ain't so bad...

Three movies, two days, 4.5 hours....

90 minutes of....

"Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist",

"The Wackness",


" A Good Day to be Black and Sexy".

We'll begin with "The Wackness"

Let's just say the soundtrack saved the movie, but ultimately the soundtrack is the most important character in the film.

The musical quality of great throwbacks draws you in and keeps you centered around the ethics of each character.

It gives you what you need on a hot summer day in NYC. Biggie, Total, Puffy. It's the makings of the BAD BOY Dynasty @ it's best.

With"The Wackness" chump changing us, "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist", foots the bill.

Both films use music as a unique character whom gets better in each new scene.

'Nick and Norah', include a sensibility and likable way of capturing the audience, without all the bells and whistles. In short, it doesn't try hard to impress you.

It is what it is. And through these comical truth tellings, you love the characters that much more than you did when you first laid eyes on them.

Speaking of sight, I wish I never witnessed the nonsensical " A Good Day to be Black and Sexy". That movie was all kinds of messy, with no real substance behind it.

It tells tales of Black men and women and the trite $hit that happens in and out the bedroom, pillow talk included. I mean, I like my movies gritty and raw, but this $hit was just sloppy and unnecessary.

I guess better luck next time.

Chris Caused Disturbia....

If you haven't already heard, your beyond late.

Chris Brown is the official spokes person for Hanes Wife Beaters

I'm no fan of Rhi Rhi, however, I wouldn't wish an a$$ beating on anyone, especially a woman.

That 'ish is so beyond messed up.

Not only will he lose loads of teenage fans and the approving mothers, he's going to lose endorsement deals with quite a few companies.

Damn. That's all you can say.

Another nicca bites the dust, I should have seen that $hit coming a mile away.

Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better...

I'm avoiding again.

And so the blogging begins...

I have a few new ideas for something so simple, yet complex.

The perfect conundrum.

Where do I begin...

I have this "idea" that I truly envision becoming bigger than what I dreamed it to be.

Pause Stop Rewind...

All I can say is, DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE.

Crisis means crunch time....

and when I'm in the clutch that's when $hit gets interesting.

Damn I'm a genius.

Peep Game Peep, Summer '09.

It's All in My Head...

I'm avoiding doing what needs to be done. So, I'll blog.

Last night after watching a horrid two hours of my CW line-up, I wanted to put in my beloved DVD 'Revolver'.

Guy Ritchie at his best.

I mean, I was never a fan of his earlier work, but this movie definitely took to me like none other that he's made before.

It's fast paced, pay attention, or you'll end up being f*cked in the a$$ without any lube kinda of movie.

Details are of the ut most importance in the film.

And in some sick humor, it's those details that betrays you, in the end.

It stars none other than Jason Statham (Crank, Italian Job) , Ray Loitta (NARC, Goodfellas), Vincent Pastore (Sopranos) , and Andre "3000" Benjamin( Outkast, Four Brothers, Semi- Pro).

It's a wham-bam-thank you ma'am kinda of joint.

Just makes you wanna smoke afterwards.

Suck & Tuck...

Nip Tuck...Loves It!!!!!

I've been hooked on Mcnamara/Troy since back in 2003.

The first season was just about getting the viewers hooked and every season, including this one, has just left me wanting more.

They've definitely upped the ante!!!!

Liz and Christian....Eden and her Bull'ish...and last but not least Sean and Julia.

I don't want this show to end. But like all good runs, it has to.

So for right now, I'm going to sit back and enjoy the utter amazement, known as Nip Tuck.


You know you got it bad when you start lying to yourself and claim that you're doing research by watching movies....Lol!!!!!

Naw, but for real, I was doing research. I'm attempting to make sense of why I pick the movies I pick. Of course, one would say that it's just what you're interested in.

I think differently.

I believe it to be something deeper than that. I probably came up with that notion, due to BGSP.

I mean, WTF are my motives when I watch these movies. I've seen some crazy $hit on screen. But these films are usually the ones that I end up loving.

The self-deprecating characters who's lives have been torn to shambles. And can't seem to cut a break, no matter what they do.

Simply, I hate happy endings. There's something slightly unrealistic about it.

But to my point, if I only enjoy the misery, what does that say about me as an individual? Some might say it's pretty sadistic. Perhaps, there's even more depth underneath.

Have you ever found yourself going through the collection of movies you have and just asking, why do I like it? What the hell appeals to me about these themes? It's not as simple as you think, huh?

There two movies that stick out like sore thumbs. One of which I've previously mentioned in my post See Spot Run. 'Hardy Candy' tells a cautionary tale remixed where the would be "victim" is none other than the antagonist of the film. The same could be said for 'Descent'.

'Descent' starring Rosario Dawson, is just one of those movies that A) asks the viewer to watch very closely. And B) asks the question, what would you have done?

I wouldn't want to give the movie away. It's a film that has to be just swallowed whole, from beginning to end, and no retelling or plot summary would do it justice. Just see it for yourself.

But be warned, it will make you think in the most uncomfortable way possible.
