GO!

I've been to too many great places in the world...from Miladys in New York to a one table restaurant in Rome. Cool places, special nights....so I'm going to start sharing. The 5 Spot in Nashville...Monday night...if you are in Nashville on a Monday, don't miss this party. Don't even think about it...just GO!


On clothing...

I have realized that people use clothing for only three things. Some use clothing to cover their bodies, others use clothing to express themselves and the last group uses clothing to become entirely different people.

Julia Roberts x WSJ

The most hilarious thing about Julia Robert's career is that she became 'America's Sweetheart,' by playing a prostitute. LMAO


Tupac

Brilliant. The interviewer gets so mad because he is blindsided by Tupac's intelligence.

Outkast Mix by Mick

Two hours of alien funk and southern goodness. Here.


On equality for women...

Equality for women was dwarfed in reality from the beginning. When society allowed, without any resistance, the institution of religion as it is now followed. When your being, morals and faith is in the hands of men. When you worship God and consider God a male. When all of your prophets are men. When you technically worship a 'male' figure...how can equality be reached for women? How can you be equal to a being that has the same sex as God "himself."

Box Chevy x Yelawolf

This video is beautifully done.

El Debarge x Arsenio

Them Debarges are just too talented.

451ing...

Currently burning through the pages of...

 

Chris Turner x The Blue Note


On Noah the film...

In America we protest and sign petitions over everything...so how in the hell wasn't there a petition of some sort about the film Noah being so lacking in people of color? Noah, historically, came from the Middle East...and we all know there's a lot of people of color there.

Marvin Gaye Live

A lot of people know I love music but don't realize my favorite artist of all-time (any genre) is Marvin Gaye. The combination of musicianship, talent, god given voice, style and performing is so unmatched to me...this is my favorite internet clip of Marvin...who died on April 1, 1984 a day before his birthday.

Madonna x NYMag x New York Music

I like this cover best...

On everyone's religious contradiction...

A lot of people that follow religions believe that ONLY their religion is the correct one...and then will turn around and say God is all knowing and has no limits.

James Avery on success...

'Monetary success is not success. Career success is not success. Life, someone that loves you, giving to others, doing something that makes you feel complete and full. That is success.' - James Avery


On travel and social media...

If you travel somewhere and don't post it to Instagram...did you really go? #smh

Kanye West & Kim Kardashian x Vogue


Amy Winehouse x One Shining Night

By accident I caught this great documentary of Amy Winehouse performing in a tiny church in Ireland in 2006. In-between performances she talked about her many musical influences...from Thelonius Monk to Salt N Peppa. If you get a chance, check it out. Here's a clip below.

On NBA age limit...

The NBA trying to raise the age limit is about race and money. It is not about education. People go to college to earn a degree, to do what? Earn money! They develop a skill set that allows them to earn a living. Sometimes, in sports, you have that athletic skill set at the age of 18. How are men, rich men, now telling these young, (sometimes) poor (mostly)black (sometimes white) men that they can't earn a living at the age of 18. And the reason? The NBA wants the product to become better so that rich white men (NBA owners) can make more money with fewer risk of losing money.

On religious belief...

You ever wonder what you would believe in if you weren't told what to believe in?

On love...

If you truly loved someone, I don't think you ever stop loving them. You only stop acknowledging that you love them.

Isaiah Rashad x Heavenly Father

The young prince from the hometown.

Get On Up...

I'm sorry...this looks pretty bad. And not bad as in good. The director is the same that directed 'The Help.' And this trailer looks like 'The Help,' featuring James Brown. There's so many things to talk about in James Brown's life and I feel that this movie (I refuse to call it a film) will miss every single important aspect of his life and contribution to America's story.

Ghandi on technology...

Culture, leisure, indeed living, become so interlinked with machines that man himself may be innerly impoverished.
