JD ERA ft. Lokz – Champagne Nights

30 December 2009 at 10:56 pm (Entertainment, Heavy Rotation, Music, Toronto Life) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

!!!!!! JanuERA, FebruERA. !!!!!!!!

Two of the better artists in Toronto (yes, I said it) and two of my homies have collaborated on a track set to be released on Era’s mixtape, Th1rt3en that’ll be hitting the streets in late January. Also be on the look out for Era’s album entitled The Difference, which will be dropping in April (I asked Era of the exact release date but he won’t have that until next week, so I’m gonna go with the feeling that Era is releasing this around his birthday and if thats the case Happy Birthday to the two of us. Era and I were born on the same day, however, four years apart and me first – and yet he seems to think I stole his birthday swagger – humph)

A Rapture – Stereo Alchemy

30 December 2009 at 5:46 pm (Campaigns, Celebrity, Entertainment, Fashion, Heavy Rotation, Music) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So as you know I blog for ILUVLOLA.NET, not just myself ūüôā and I was put onto a post by my amazing colleague Naphtali and I immediately fell in love with this song playing in the video. I found out what it was and wanted to share it. I’m guessing the La Lohan shoot adds to the sexy factor but the song in and of itself is magnifique. I want to smash to it. Yes, you just read correctly. LOL. Enjoy.

Take it in, love it, smash to it. I love different music and sound.

#REALWOMAN Rule #1 (Pertaining To Catching A Cheater)

29 December 2009 at 9:38 pm (Life, Love & Relationships, Random, Rants, WTF!?) (, , , , , , , , , )

I feel like I need to write about a topic that SHOULD be common knowledge but isn’t EVER that way.

I’m talking to you ladies. Not ALL of you. Not the #realwomen out there. Not the #realladies out there. I’m talking to you bummy hoodrats with no common sense and lack of brain power.

When you are in a relationship with a man you do NOT go after the chick you find your man cheating with.  Not until AFTER you find out she without a doubt knew about you and stepped into your position willingly and without care. But if you have NO way of knowing, you play your position as a LADY and as a WOMAN and check your damn man FIRST and find out about HER later.

After all the bullshit I read on twitter ¬†this evening I feel like I have to reiterate this to some of y’all. ESPECIALLY you young women coming up that haven’t dealt with this yet. You are fortunate but heed this post PLEASE … You’ll be a better person because of it.

You don’t go attacking the chick calling her ugly, worthless, and whatever other name you have for her. You don’t get your friends to gang up on her and attack her. You don’t turn gotdamn psycho and friend her up on Twitter. You don’t harass her phone and email and IM’s and steal her pictures and basically INTERWEB stalk her! You don’t call her a bitch, a slut, a homewrecker, etc. etc., BLAH BLAH BLAH! And PLEASE NOTE: when it’s found out SHE was the MAIN chick and YOU were the side bitch you DEFINITELY shut your damn mouth up. It’s EASY to blame the “other woman” and fling all kinds of insults at her (you know, so you aren’t looked at as a fool *rolls eyes*) but yet cry, beg,¬†bawl and weep to the dog of a man “WHY ME!?” when he¬†could be bringing you home ANY and ALL kinds of diseases.

The ONLY person you need to check is the MAN in the center of the mix up. YOUR supposed man. He’s the only one that’s lied, deceived and played all parties involved (including himself). He is the one that had the loyalty to you (or her) and is the one that should deal with the consequences of breaking that trust and bond. How is it another females fault if she was lied to and told her “man” was single and uninvolved!? She’s AS MUCH a victim as you are! ¬†A #REALWOMAN would realize that and sit down and TALK to her and relate to her woman to woman.

Personally, I’m not coming out of pocket with a chick because I’ll want truths. I’ll talk to a woman STRAIGHT up and find out what I need to know. Screaming and dissing another female will NOT get you the answers you want, need and deserve. PLAY YOUR DAMN POSITION, LADIES! You come at a bitch swinging, she’s gonna swing back. Just get your answers and then walk your ass on into the Health Clinic. Simple.

It’s funny I even have to write this out but let it be a refresher for you chickenheads that CLAIM ¬†to know this rule but never put it into practice.

#REALWOMEN RULE #1: Check your man before you check me.
(FYI: no ¬†this post isn’t about me. I’m currently drama free and happily UNinvolved in any stupid man mix up, tyvm)

We Need A Resolution

28 December 2009 at 12:46 pm (Life)

Do you have a New Year’s Resolution for 2010? Do you make them at New Year’s or all year round? Me, personally, I always feel like change begins and ends when you want it to .. not with the change of a full or half moon, the start of a new job, relationship or friendship, and surely not at the beginning of a new year HOWEVER, at one time or another in our lives we’ve all made that “New Year’s” resolution. I can bet not many of us actually KEEP them. I can tell you I haven’t kept not one in all my years of making them. They sound good and are made with the best of intentions but who are we kidding? After 3 months in a gym we start going back to our life pre-NYE. I’ve done the “get in shape and / or lose weight” … the “I’m gonna quit smoking” … the “be nice to strangers” … ¬†the “stop gossiping” … the “no sex in the champagne room” (ahahahahahaha. ha. ha. *clears throat*) … yea, all those. I don’t keep them and I think it may have been because I felt like I had to make one for making sake.

So, despite all that being said, I made some for this year … LMFAO! I decided to stop being such an asshole and to cut back on the cussing. I also vowed to give commitment a FAIR shot. No bias, negativity and “psh’ing” a dudes advances and / or intentions. I MAY even resolve to open up my twitter full time – THAT last one is a big one, folk. The aforementioned ones are pretty attainable. I don’t HAVE to cuss but if someone pisses me off THAT is where the challenge is going to come into play. When someone disrespects me I tend to become an asshole AND cuss – they literally go hand in hand. I have to avoid certain people to avoid getting angry. If I can do this … then I’ll be alright.

Any of my readers have resolutions they want to reveal? I’d love to hear them. From the classic to the silly – let’s hear them.

New Audio: Tweet – Love Again

28 December 2009 at 12:38 pm (Entertainment, Heavy Rotation, Music) (, , , )

I awoke this morning to a lovely email. You know when an artist has been MIA for whatever reason and then they pop up out of nowhere and release a joint that makes you not even care they’ve been neglecting your ear? Being a fan of that smooth R&amp;B and of Tweet’s sound, this was right on time. Tweet has released a lead single off her new album entitled, “<em>Love Again</em>”. After listening to this track, I look forward to the spring-release of “<em>Love, Tweet</em>”.

The Best Book I’ve Ever Read

24 December 2009 at 12:00 am (Book Reviews, Entertainment, Family, Movies, Raves, World Issues) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I have been moved by MANY books but none have hit me as hard as The Kite Runner. I first read Khaled Hosseini about three years ago when I purchased A Thousand Splendid Suns. I loved that book and vowed to buy The Kite Runner right after that. Time escaped me. I was in Value Village of all places where this book was sitting on the counter. It looked brand new and was only $5.99. I bought it of course. It took me almost a month to read it (which is unusual for me) not because it was slow or boring or didn’t hold my interest but because I was so busy I often only had time to read it on my lunch break at work and to and from work on public transit. Towards the middle though, I started taking an extra 30 minutes before bed to close a chapter. I just couldn’t put it down.

In¬†The Kite Runner, Amir and Hassan grow up together in Afghanistan like brothers, although they couldn’t be more different. Amir is the son of a wealthy businessman, a Sunni Muslim, a Pashtun, and he’s educated and reads voraciously. Hassan’s father is a servant to Amir’s father. ¬†Hassan is a Sh’ia Muslim, a Hazara, illiterate, and he has a harelip. But neither boy has a mother and they spend their childhoods¬†roaming the streets of Kabul together. Amir, though, continually uses his superior position to taunt or abuse Hassan, and one day hides in fear as Hassan is beaten mercilessly by bullies. The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan sends Amir’s family to the United States, but he returns there as an adult during the Taliban rule to atone for his sins to Hassan.

This book caused me to shed tears on public transit like a damn fool. It is extremely provocative, powerful, and heartbreakingly gripping. I have never read such a piece of factually based fiction that left me feeling so tired, angry, exhausted and hopeful and at peace. So many emotions are stirred within you when you read this story. So many emotions are left swirling around you when you close the back-end. It’s a tough read at times because you are so taken in by Hassan’s innocence and what happened to him was just gut-wrenching. His unwavering love and kindness for Amir are relentless and you want to hate Amir so much but you can’t because there is a part of Amir that lives in all of us. To despise him would be to despise that part of ourself.

I will say the nature of Amir and Hassan’s bond was something I picked up on immediately. I knew from the first 1/4 of the book what I ended up learning in the latter half. I won’t say what it was. I don’t want to say it was any foreshadowing on the author’s part but rather my knack for picking up on the understated obvious. As a writer myself I saw the signs. I was pleased to be correct. I feel like the character development couldn’t have grown the way it did without that sort of connection. I know I’m not making much sense to those that havent read the story but for the ones that have – I’m sure you see what I mean.

This is a story of honour and redemption. Of atonement and forgiveness. Of love. There is a quote in the book said by Amir’s Baba and it says: “A child that doesn’t stand up for himself grows into a man who doesn’t stand up for anything.” And in so many ways this is true but the best part of this book is the other quote that sent Amir onto his path of atonement and that was stated by Rahim Kahn in which: “there IS a way to be good again“. There is always a way. Redemption doesn’t have to always come in the form of the way it did with Amir. His sacrifice was the ultimate price to pay BUT if we all just look to do the right thing when we are called upon to do so, and even when we aren’t – the world would be a better place.

I’m watching the movie now and while I’m sure it won’t be as good as the book (let’s be honest, what movie ever is?) I will be honest and tell you that as soon as I saw the little boy who would play Hassan, my eyes literally teared up. I don’t know – to put a face to such a beautifully tragic character just brought it all home for me.

I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who has yet to read it. I am declaring this to be THE best book I have ever read. Not ONE of the best but THE best. Khaled Hosseini’s debut novel paints a gritty and gruesome aspect of modern-day Afghanistan and what it was like to grow up in a country that was once so full of culture and heritage. This book will force you to cherish your loved ones, believe in yourself and the responsibility you have to stand up for yourself and others and the power of God to always be on your side even when it seems He has turned his back on you.
