I luh God- Erica Campbell Review

So i’m sitting here listening to Erica Campbell new LP “i Luh God”. I must say I did the Piddy bop a few times. Some has called it “Gospel Trap” music.. others have criticized the move. I actually like the song. I haven’t been fond of her personality on some occasion, but Mary Mary has always pushed the envelope on gospel music.. in a good way. This beat reminds me of tunes from Atl, which is hot right now.

Overall I give the song a 7/10.. I hoped that she would actually sing more, but it wasn’t a lost. I would actually like to here more.

Be a Do Gooder

Soooo.. people are selfish.. we get so caught up in our own lives we forget that others may need help, or are lonely. We have to look out for each other, because we are all we got. ( I know that’s not proper English.. bite me)

Below are some tips i found on Murphy Goode wine website that I would like to share with you. All it takes is one person to make this place better.

  • Take a do-good vacation. There are books & resources out there to find the perfect volunteer vacation match for you.
  • Bring an elderly neighbor dinner and stay for a visit
  • Volunteer for an organization where you truly believe in the mission. Bring a friend along once in a while to spread the Goode.
  • Surprise a friend with flowers
  • Write a thank you letter to service men & women and then collect more letters from friends, family & coworkers
  • Always offer up your seat on a crowded bus or train for someone who really looks like they need it
  • Reach out to friends you may have lost touch with
  • Leave a bigger-than-usual tip occasionally

Music Review Omarion

Currently listen to Omarion  New Cd – Sex Playlist..

That Beard tho!
That Beard tho!

Over all .. I like it.. its catchy.. romantic.. sexy and dance worthy..

I think Omarion is a totally over looked R& B artist.. Dare i say he’s better tha Chris Brown? Yes.. he is.. But since he is a rebel and in the blogs, new etc often he is over looked.

He always come out with good music, bu I think the boy band stint still lingers over him like toe funk in a gym locker room.

If he can get that haze off him he would do great.

i give the album 3.7 popcorns out of 5.

And he is rocking a beard also.. Yasss Gawd..beards are super sexy!

Movie Review: Annie (2014)

annie1

The sun will come out tomorrow!! betcha bottom dollar that tooo morrow!

Geez louise I loved that movie!..

I loved the 1982 movie also, but this one was the best.

It had great humor, emotions, and a genuine feel good vibe to it.

But there was one mistake…

I went with my MOM!

She talks throughout the movie.. i was H..O..T..T hot!.

She kept asking me if  they gave refill, how was the popcorn.. was Jamie Foxx cute.

I was like “Woman HUSH!”.. lol

My Kids and my daughter's friend.
My Kids and my daughter’s friend.

Not to mention we tried this new movie theater called Movie Studio Grill, Where you can watch the movie and order nice burgers and such..  and the price wasn’t that bad.

Quvenzhané Wallis- Annie was so optimistic, it baffled me. I wish I could be more like that character. She always say the good in people, no matter the circumstance.

Cameron Diaz played the part of Mrs Hannigan to a “T”  and she was so funny.

Last but most defiantly not the least.. Mr.Stacks.. played by Jamie Foxx.. I love his swagger.. his walk.. even from the In Living Color days.

The most funny part in the movie was when they were getting dressed for the Gala and Annie walked in on Mr. Stacks getting ready and she saw his wig.. lol.. my kids busted out laughing and said.. “mommy you have one of those!”..lol

Over all i give the movie 4.5 out of 5 stars. I wish it was longer, even though it was already 2 hours.. it was just that good.

 

My Best Day Ever!

This is my best day ever!.. Over 1000 view let alone 71 for the day!

and the day isn’t even over!

I just want to say THANK YOU~!!!

there is more to come.. if you’d like to reach out to me email me!

The Blind Side… The movie I will never watch

Al right.. here we go..

I recently stumbled across an article about Leigh Anne Tuohy.

This is the lady that movie Blind side is based on.

Basically this Leigh adopted a black boy.. took care all of his needs.. so that she can get what she wanted.. him to play at Ole Miss.

Any who.. that’s not why I’m writing.

I could very well go into how this movie favors the “white savior'” or how blacks are depicted as being dumb and submissive, but once again.. that’s not what I’m here for.

The original Leigh Anne Tuohy recently posted on Facebook this pic and the below message:

We see what we want! It’s the gospel truth! These two were literally huddled over in a corner table nose to nose and the person with me said “I bet they are up to no good” well you know me… I walked over, told them to scoot over. After 10 seconds of dead silence I said so whats happening at this table? I get nothing.. I then explained it was my store and they should spill it… They showed me their phones and they were texting friends trying to scrape up $3.00 each for the high school basketball game! Well they left with smiles, money for popcorn and bus fare. We have to STOP judging people and assuming and pigeon holing people! Don’t judge a book by its cover or however you’d like to express the sentiment! Accept others and stopping seeing what you want to see!!!

Hold up..

wait a minute..

Two black  boys are in a store.. in which Leigh owns.. minding their own business, sitting at a table talking.  one of her guest says they are “up to no good” Why would you go and single them out? They are not breaking any rules. then you invade their privacy my “telling them to scoot over” and then they are silent for 10 seconds. Just from me reading that portion I can tell they didn’t want to be bothered.

But in steps the Savior.. forcefully..

I really dislike it.

for one these are not people that she knows.. they are patrons at her store. They were teenagers trying to get something done.

My self a parent.. i don’t alway interject when my kids are coming up with a plan.. so why would it be ok for a stranger to do so?

Then on top of that you pose and take a picture of you “good deed”?

Bye Felicia!

It’s not even a black or white thing.

What really grinds my gears is, if you want to do something nice for someone..do it without an audience.. without proving a point.

all in all,

I could be wrong.. I’m always looking for ways to grow.

Until next time..

ya’ll have a good-on’ !
