Random Thoughs for this Monday Morning...

I had a whole other post for today, but sitting here watching the AMAs got my mind running with a few Random Thoughts...

  • I am so tired of DJs and Artists playing and sampling the same damn 3 reggae songs. PLEASE know there are so many more and even hotter songs out there.
  • I love Beyonce like the next but damn what could possibly be next? I mean we all know the girl is quite talented but what else is there for her to accomplish, if she is getting these lifetime achievement type awards so soon in her career. I guess this means MTV will bring back their Icon award soon for her too?
  • I find it offensive when people go on music award shows and lip sync. The key word there is music not dance... do better Chris Brown!!
  • Queen Latifah... rapper vs songstress? Now that could be an interesting 2 disc album.
  • Will music award shows ever become extinct like beauty pageants?

  • Columbus Short, Laz Alonzo, Idris Elba, and Keith Robinson.... I am already in the Christmas spirit.

  • Since 10 people have died from this new cold strain going around... there will be no more shaking hands and very little hugging going on for awhile.

  • I think I mentioned that I joined a newly formed book club here in DC last month... well the October book was My Man, My Boys by Dwayne Vernon and I couldn't get pass the second chapter... has anyone read this? Was it just me?

  • Why won't Valentino let me take him to the grocery store???

  • Seeing MJB on the cover of the Advocate, will make me buy that magazine for the first time in years.

  • While I was looking forward to my return to ATL this week... I am thinking 2 days with my family may be enough and I may need to come back to the solitude of the Waterfront on Saturday.

  • This $1000 ticket to St. Kitts is going to make me have to change my Holiday plans.

  • Oh and last but definitely not least... The Ritz Carlton Battery Park, you gave me everything I needed for that spur of the moment Saturday jaunt to a party in Harlem. Life of a socialite is hard work!! EZPass, gas money, 3 hours and 15 minutes and a place to crash what more do u need, I could be in NY all the time.

Don't we all love Valentino? But don't tell me youa nd him don't have something going on. I think you do - I've always speculated. If I was Wendy William-esque I'd have found out the dirt. You were in DC - he was living in the ATL. He's still there (I think) then you moved to the ATL - now you're back in DC...what's next? Is he coming to DC. He's probably already there...don't play w/ me Reddman - I know yall got something going on...I can feel it! Where's John Edwards or Sylvia Browne when you need them?

lord i read that book My Man My Boyz, well some of it. everyone doesnt need to be a writer. the writing was awful and storyline should have been a fantasy novel.

Valentino said...

"Columbus Short, Laz Alonzo, Idris Elba, and Keith Robinson.... I am already in the Christmas spirit."

Those names give me a feeling and it ain't the Xmas spirit if you know what I mean.

I read the book My Man, My Boyz as well as a group of friends. We all found the book to be refreshing and something new. I do however understand we have our likes and dislikes. I think one of our biggest down falls as a people we are so quick to tear someone down rather than uplift. Be happy that the writer is trying to do something positive. I personally think that it is probably just you. I would recommend the book highly. Just a thought

i never tore the writer or his work down I simply expressed my opinion. All I simply said was I didn't get pass the second chapter.

Any writer, artist or entertainer should be prepared for criticizm, if not they should choose another line of work.

But thanks for your opinion.
