Why Must He Cry?

24 April 2010 at 12:30 am (Entertainment, Funny Things, WTF!?) (, , , , , )


See. Now, I don’t and would never laugh at someone’s pain and struggles but if you don’t laugh at this then there’s something wrong with you. Straight up. I saw this earlier today and I wasn’t going to put it on my blog because I felt like it was wrong. I felt guilty for all of 2 seconds and then I decided, no … this shit is WAY too funny to NOT share it with people that have yet to see it.

It should be noted that I am NOT making fun of the situation or WHY he’s crying but solely laughing at the cry itself. In the words of my homegirl he literally YELLED his cry at his son. Poor ting.  He actually BELLOWED out the cry. He sounded like a cross between a dying seal, a dying moose, a broken car alarm and a fledging police siren.

His own SON didn’t know what to make of it. I mean … the son looked incredulous. Like he wanted to bust out laughing but couldn’t believe what he was hearing. This is just  a damn shame. And then, for whomever to go and AUTO TUNE it just made what little bit of guilt I had inside completely dissipate. And I make NO apologies for it.

New Video: Drake – Over

12 April 2010 at 7:35 pm (#Kanyeshrug, Heavy Rotation, Music, Toronto Life, Videos, WTF!?) (, , , , )


So …. this video makes no sense but thats OK because I quite enjoyed looking at Drake’s plump bottom lip. His upper lip is shaped like a heart. His entire mouth makes me question if I could sit on his face and NEVER jump off.

Yea, this song goes hard. The beat is INSANE. The video chick is REALLY pretty but ……… all the lights and motion screens have me scratching my head. Drake’s bottom lip is great tho. Absolutely enticing. Yup.

Relationships Are Like Jobs

10 April 2010 at 10:59 am (Love & Relationships) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )


This is a no brainer. We’ve all heard this comparison before, right? Here’s the thing though:  Some people treat relationships like hard LABOUR! Relationships are hard work, sure. They’re like jobs, yes but they don’t have to be so hard.  The key to making every job easier is open communication with your co-worker or boss, or in the sense I’m speaking of – with your partner. Talking things out is always the best thing to do but it always becomes how you say things not what you say. If you let things sit and marinate for too long then it builds up and turns into resentment. And when the slightest thing happens in your relationship you snap. It’s the straw that breaks the camels back and all this outpouring of resentment rains down on your partners shoulders and they feel attacked and quite often what do they say? “Why didn’t you tell me this before?” Yea, why didn’t you? Fear of confrontation? Fear of thinking it wasn’t worthy of a conversation? But yet, here you are now throwing all that’s been bothering you at them when the issue that caused the argument in the first place has nothing to do with the past. That’s unfair. Imagine if you were on the receiving end of that discussion … how would that make you feel?

Why is it that we can yell at our better half’s but would never dream of yelling at our boss? You know if you step over a line you’ll lose your job but why do we feel if we step over a line we won’t lose our significant other? Because they love you? Because emotions are involved? Take it from me, that will only last so long. Communicating openly and effectively – talking AND listening AND understanding – will keep you heads above many other couples. Love is not enough. It can sustain you but when life hands you a pink slip or lay off notice don’t act surprised when that love burns out. Don’t run a good thing into the ground thinking you can rely on it. You’ll bleed love dry. Don’t ever let it get to that point.

It’s important to voice your concerns sincerely and without malice or anger. If you do the latter your hopes for a good outcome are futile. Understand that if there’s something going on in your relationship that concerns you, you must let your partner know.  They can’t work with you to fix something they aren’t aware of. And you can’t hold that against them even though many of us do. Unless you’re dating a psychic, your partner isn’t a mind reader. No matter how small the issue, DISCUSS it. Don’t be worried about them thinking your nitpicking or nagging. After all, once again, it’s how you say it, not what you say. If you say it with a nagging quality then chances are that’s how it will come across and be perceived. And if you KNOW you’re nitpicking then either you aren’t stating your case strongly enough because they aren’t getting it OR they don’t care to change (or try to change) their behaviours, in which case you have a bigger issue at hand. Cross that bridge when you come to it. Effective communication works wonders and when you get the hang of how well it works you’d be surprised at how well it’s received by the people who love you most. Trust me.

Treat your relationship like a job you love and put all effort and joy into making it stay that way. There’s nothing wrong with a healthy argument now and then. It makes your relationship stronger and your understanding of your partner so much better.

Relationships are great if you know how to handle them but if you don’t or can’t, then recognize it’s not for you. Move on. Live life and be happy.

42 years ago on this day, the world lost a GREAT man. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated and killed for trying to guide humanity to a better understanding of each other. Let us never forget his legacy. Let us never forget his dream.


Rest In Eternal Peace

You Don’t Know What You’ve Got Til It’s Gone

2 April 2010 at 11:34 am (#Kanyeshrug, Life, Love & Relationships) (, , , , )


For real. That’s a song, right? It’s also a life lesson.

It can apply to a lost love, friendship and even in some cases a job. Hey … it can work. You can apply life lessons to ANY aspect of your life, believe me. Even jobs and work LOL!

Yesterday was April Fool’s Day and I didn’t partake but a couple of people tried to play jokes on me. THEY SURE DID! I changed my Facebook status to “in a relationship” because I am and I swear doing that brought out all the living under a rock mofos. WHAT!? SMH. Why do people do that? It shows me that either you are extremely nosey and only want to know whats going on in my life when you see something happening OR ……… OK, that’s all it shows me.

So, of all the people who hit me up after that status change, ONE stood out in particular and I won’t get into specifics about the conversation but I’ll say this – he definitely has regret. I was ON HIS SIDE. I was there to be what he needed me to be. A friend, a lover, confidante, his woman … and he SEEMINGLY wanted all of the above. He outright stated as much but … the next day he ran because he stated he had a PERSONAL situation to deal with. Rather than being a man about his shit and just saying so, he ignored my calls and didn’t explain his sudden disappearance. Now, me being one to NEVER pursue a man nor wait around on one that’s indecisive, I moved on. Not before I let him have it though – of course.

Nothing was said over weeks. Not a damn thing. But the MINUTE my status changes an outpouring of “genuine” and “sincere” apologies come my way. He was on some “this has been bothering me” shit, but … you hit me up only NOW? Why? I flat-out asked him: “did my status change have anything to do with this?” he adamantly said no and that he didn’t realize. Maybe he didn’t but we can all agree the timing is quite coincidental, can’t we? April Fool’s is not one to be lost on me. Don’t tell me no jokes. Don’t play no pranks.

In the course of the conversation I felt like I was being pressured or tricked or hinted to. At one point he said with almost ….. anticipated curiosity “I know there’s no way we’ll ever be together like that, I know I fucked up” and I just sat there in silence. WHAT is it you want me to say to that?

The point of this story is never take a woman for granted. If she is GOOD to you and treats you good and  caters to you, because that’s her nature and NOT because she’s trying to BUY you, then keep her close. DO NOT take her for granted and feel you can do what you want with her and her heart because behind that soft exterior is usually a VERY self-aware and strong woman who won’t take your bullshit. Pride is a son of a bitch and a lot of you men have way too much of it. A good woman can recognize and see pride for what it is but when you outright push her away due to being too proud how much do you think she’ll take before she moves on? A good woman KNOWS her worth and won’t stick around in a situation where she isn’t praised and taken care of: emotionally, physically and spiritually. She may try to voice herself to you and make you aware that she is THERE for you but she probably won’t do it more than once. She expects the men she cares for to be intelligent enough to only need to hear something once before changes and adjustments are made and she expects this because she expects that of herself.

You WILL regret letting this woman get away not because she is “the shit” and because “you’ll never find anyone as good as her” but because your conscience will tell you that’s no way to treat someone who was good to you. And when there is such a shortage of good men and women in this generation, you’ll chalk it up to “falling down” and a “learning experience”. That’s good to tell yourself but don’t act like it won’t mess you up the next time you meet some chick and all she wants from you is what you can do for her.

Stay up and treat people the way they DESERVE to be treated. Kindergarten lessons have never been so easy, folk!
