Human Relations Laid To Rest

RIP to the human connection. We live in a society as of today, that can not express how they feel without the keys of a smartphone or laptop. The intimacy of face-to-face contact is a lost art. I remember there was a time when I would enjoy human interaction socially the “ambiance’ of it all. It gets irritating when you are socializing or attempting to and someone is communicating via text or tweeting. To be honest I’m guilty of that also to a certain point. I mean if I’m in an environment that is lame and whack shoot I’m pulling my iPhone and I will tweet. But as I digress that doesn’t happen often because I savor the moments I have with my loved ones and friends. Summer is here, I hope and pray that you guys are not stuck to a laptop all day. Go to parties, bbqs, dates, movies, the park, cafes, beach, concerts, for those foodies hit up new restaurants. The world is yours. Enjoy good conversation and laughs try not to stay on that phone. Make memories. Make human relations alive again. It is surely a lost art.  Yes that’s my opinion…

When Life Throws Curveballs...

It’s amazing how life is a long-winded journey. Full of curves and turns that come unexpectedly. How we deal with it determines our strength and even our character. Generally speaking it makes you become who you are or even what you do not want to be. How can you prepare for the curveballs ?Well you wont even know when they come. All I can say is face them head on. Life is tough but you have to be tougher. A warrior ready for the battles that come. Believe me I know. Well enough deep “stuff”. Stayed for more of my opinions. Yes…I have an opinion.

Hip Hop Vixens Circa 1997

1997 was the year. I was a youngin fixated on the music around me. The inner city youth of Flatbush (my hood by the way) we were drawn to hip hop as well as today. Well what really grabbed my classmates attention was the rap divas Foxy Brown and Lil Kim both BK’s finest respectively. These two female artists graced the cover of Source Magazine. I remember the boys in my class discussing the article. We were young ones wanting to get a peek at grown folks agendas. We were wise beyond our years. It was funny because when I went to the library (yes before Google there was libraries), to find the article. I was frustrated. One, because the actual article was missing when Iwas searching for it. Secondly I did not want to buy the actual magazine at the newsstand anticipating my mother’s reaction to my fondness of such a magazine.Did I actually remember what the article contained? No. Did I remember the impact these two females had on classmates? Yes Is it the same impact? No. HipHop Circa 1997
