Anais Nin: You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken.

Sh!# I Heard That Made me Laugh...

His parents canceled his brothers' WoW account on the internet. Watch him freak-the-f***-out


Congo Square


Recently I decided to take a chance and  listen to someone I'd been overlooking since before now..

Ms. Teena Marie.

I mean, Portuguese Love is in my iTunes library and it's my jam! Heck, my brother even sings that song in the shower. But I guess it wasn't the right time in my life to listen and invest in 'Lady T' and her music.  

The Lowdown...

Before, I heard "Can't Last A Day" on the radio while I was drawing and I immediately went to my imeem account to favorite it and add it to my blog for you to hear. But after that I forgot to look at the rest of her 2009 effort. Silly me..

The next day, It was early in the morning and I was on imeem just doing what I normally do before I go to class and I saw her new album on the New Music section of the home site. I don't really remember what I was expecting to hear, but before I knew it, the first song on Congo Square (Released June 9, 2009) "Pressure" was making me sway..and bend..and throw my shoulders to the slow, winding beat of her music. I mean, home- girl is KILLING it on her new album.


Go buy it somewhere. This album is bangin'. I know you see "Can't Last a Day" it on the blog or are you deaf? Wait. No, you're just at work so you couldn't hear it if you wanted to. Just make sure you go get it on your way home.

Preview It Below, but make sure you BUY IT! 

Congo Square

By The way...."Can't Last a Day" is missing from the album sampler..

Sh!# I Heard That Made Me Mad


If we didn’t already know it’s hard out here right now trying to find a gig, Forbes wants to remind us by releasing their yearly report for the 10 Worst Cities For Jobs. While this can be very helpful for those of us thinking about moving for a better chance at a good job, it can also be quite depressing for those of us who happen to stay in these cities. Check them out below…
10 Worst Cities For Jobs:
Detroit-Livonia-Dearborn, MI
Providence-Fall River-Warwick, RI
Cleveland-Elyria-Mentor, OH
Santa Ana-Anaheim-Irvine, CA
Oakland-Fremont-Hayward, CA
West Palm Beach-Boca Raton-Boynton Beach, FL

Want to know why this shit is making me mad? Because there just seems like a whole laundry list of things that seem to be keeping people like me from making it out or rise above our current situations. And people want to know why I want to move out of Detroit. This is one of 456 reasons...
Did you manage to peep the fact that two counties of SE Michigan were listed? On the other hand I guess it's not as bad as California. But it's still pretty damned bad from where I'm sitting....
Lord, please help me...



Billboard reports that Sade is working on the release to the long-awaited follow-up to 2000s “Lover’s Rock.”

According to Sony, Sade is in the studio now, with plans to release an as-yet-untitled album by years end.

A source from the label told Billboard, “She is in the studio and the album will come when it is ready. You don’t wait for years for one and then rush it.”
