I’m Published!!! :::: Michael Jackson For the Soul: A Fanthology

31 January 2011 at 4:59 pm (Book Reviews, Campaigns, Celebrity, Entertainment, Movies, Music, Raves, Thank You's) (, , , , , , )


Some of you may remember that roughly just over a year ago I was approached by someone on here to publish my written piece on Michael Jackson.

When Michael Jackson passed on June 25, 2009 the entire WORLD mourned and there was a collective gasp of shock. I immediately took to my blog to write about what he meant to me. To my childhood. And what he meant to humanity as a whole.

A bit later a woman by the name of Lorette Luzajic wrote me expressing interest in my piece and wanted to know if I’d be interested in submitting it to a project she was going to be working on. She was compiling a “fanthology” of written works on the late King of Pop by bloggers, writers and fans such as myself.

I was of course, flattered and honoured to be included and told her I would LOVE to be a part of this. On January 9, 2011, I received an email saying the book was finished and ready. I haven’t received my copy as yet, so I can’t do a book review but as soon as I do, I will definitely be doing a write-up. I just wanted to share this with you all so that you may show love and support and purchase your own copy.

The book is available for purchase on Amazon.com. please click >>> here <<< to buy it now! It’s only $20.00 and $1 donations from each book sold will be going to the Kids Help Phone, keeping in spirit with Michael Jackson’s legacy and love for the children of the world.

Thank you, Lorette, for working so diligently to get this book completed. I also  thank you for including me in such a special project. Also, many thanks to Eliza Lo for the beautiful front cover artwork.

We still miss you, Michael. I hope your family and fans will find justice.

A Video EVERY Black Woman (and Black Men For That Matter) MUST SEE!

15 January 2011 at 1:12 pm (Family, Life, Love & Relationships, Raves) (, , , , , )


The exponential amount of truth in this video is outstanding. It’s a harsh reality StatuesqueOne portrays but SOMEONE needs to say it. SOMEONE needs to be the person to spell that shit out. Black women, we have ALL been guilty of this at one time or another. Black men, you need to watch this to understand us and feel where we’re coming from. Black women please watch this .. I guarantee you it will NOT be a wasted 10 minutes but an EYE-OPENING 10 minutes. We need to change how society looks at and regards us. No one else will so we have to.

“You must command respect in order to never have to DEMAND it. This is quiet power.”

[Music]: *NEW* Britney Spears – Hold It Against Me

10 January 2011 at 7:49 pm (Downloads, Entertainment, Heavy Rotation, Music, Raves) (, , , , , )


The ‘net is ablaze with word that the new single for Britney Spears’ 7th studio album has been released.

The STILL Princess of Pop has had people wondering when in January it was going to drop and a few days ago it was confirmed today or tomorrow would be the day.

I’m a HUGE Britney fan and I’ve stuck by her through all her trials and tribulations. I love the new sound they’re going with production wise and I’m SO glad she’s back. Anxiously waiting her album release.

It’s Britney BITCH.

EDIT: Sorry, guys, I had the video/DL link but youtube is on a rampage LOL! They’ve ALREADY taken the video down. Thank goodness I was able to get the track first! You’re going to have to do some digging. It’s out there tho 😉 Happy hunting!

[Video]: Marsha Ambrosius – Far Away

5 January 2011 at 5:51 pm (Entertainment, Heavy Rotation, Music, Raves, Videos) (, , , )


I ADORE this song and I’m glad the video is finally here. It may be looked at as controversial but I LOVE it – I DONT CARE! It’s sad but its REAL. I love her for doing this because it shows that gay love is still just that – LOVE. You can’t help who you love and I think she’s amazing for shedding light on a relevant topic happening right now in society. Marsha looks BEAUTIFUL in it, too! LOVE the hair, girl!

Homeless Man Offered A Job By the Cleveland Cavs

5 January 2011 at 2:57 pm (Entertainment, Life, News, Raves, Sports, Televison) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )


I’m a bit late on this but this is a brief interview with a man claiming to have a God-given voice for radio and it’s not just a claim … it’s a FACT. His name is Ted Williams, he is currently homeless. Here he explains his life story briefly in just under a minute.

The video on YouTube has garnered over 4 million views in just over 24 hours. Talk about viral! Amazing!

Since the video made its way around the world, I’m happy to report that Ted has received an offer of not just a full-time job but also a mortgage on a home by the Cleveland Cavaliers. The story is below:

Ted Williams, a homeless man who is the subject of viral video that has captivated the internet at large, has been offered a full-time job and a mortgage on a home by Quicken Loans Arena and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

A woman named Tracy, representing Quicken Loans and the Cavaliers, called WNCI 97.9 on Wednesday morning and made the offer. CNBC’s Darren Rovell confirmed the authenticity of the offer on Twitter. Williams was inundated with offers throughout his appearance, so there is no word whether the offer has been accepted or signed at this point.

Williams story became a viral sensation on Tuesday with the original YouTube clip reaching more than four million views in 24 hours. He was found by a Columbus Dispatch reporter on the side of the road, using his incredible voice to collect money on the street. You can watch the original clip here.

The Cavaliers and Quicken Loans Arena are offering voiceover work in radio and television along with a new website launch that will require voiceover work from Williams.

You can hear the interview with Ted Williams on WNCI by clicking here.

The Cavaliers offer does not figure to be the last one that Williams receives. According to Rovell on Twitter, NFL Films is looking to contact the man dubbed the “Homeless D.J.” about work. Williams is also sorting through numerous opportunities for other appearance on national TV and radio, which could result in further offers in the days to come. [Source]

I can only imagine if this all works out a movie on this mans’ life will soon follow. I love GOOD news like this. It lifts my spirits and reiterates that there are still good and deserving people in this world. God bless him.

Regular Robb ft. O’Sound – Social Tailor

22 September 2010 at 12:12 pm (Downloads, Heavy Rotation, Music, Raves, Toronto Life) (, , , , )


So the highlight of my morning was getting an email from the homegirl, Sajae, putting me onto a track featuring our mutual friend O’Sound. This joint was released last month but it’s only reaching my ears now – and give that I’ve been M.I.A. on the blog front, I missed it via other channels. I had to post it, though, because I love O’Sound‘s voice and regular visitors to my blog will remember my post on his amazing song “Words To Speak“. This track was produced by O’Sound and Regular Robb, who is a dope rapper in his own right.

There’s a version that will be released soon featuring Wolf J and O’Sound himself rapping … this man is just a biscuit soaking up the talent on life’s musical plate (words of Sajae’s crazy ass). He’s truly a well-rounded artist and a force to be reckoned with. Once that track is released, I’ll be sure to post it, so keep checking back for the update.

When I hear joints like this I get excited for the talent in my city. It’s a lot of people not getting their due shine, so if I can do anything to bring such talent to the ears of others, I’m gonna do it. ENJOY! Listen & Love.

Artist: Regular Robb
Feature: O’Sound
Title: Social Tailor

Produced By: Regular Robb & O’Sound
Length: 4:11
Mixed By: Lord Quest
Artwork By: Wolf j McFarlane
