Old School Friday: Philly Neo-Soul

Posted by on May 30, 2008 in Videos | 14 comments

When I thought about this week’s theme, instantly the O’Jays and Patti Labelle came to mind, but after doing some research I also found out that Teddy Pendagrass, Delfonics, and the Stylistics were also a product of the Philadelphia Soul Movement. So I decided that I will cheat somewhat and turn my attention to the Philly Neo-Soul movement, and the queen of that movement is none other than Jill Scott.

Next in line is Musiq Soulchild, and this is one of my favorite songs from him. Maybe because I fell in love with bestfriend as well, but it worked out for the best.

Last but not least is Vivian Green. I loved her first album, her second album wasn’t that great, but I’m sure you remember this gem of a song.

I’m Convinced: Beyonce Is Pregnant Or Has Been Pregnant

Posted by on May 28, 2008 in Celebrity Couples, Juicy Gossip | 19 comments

I can’t tell you which of the above is true, but I have been looking at the pictures and I know I sound psycho, but you cannot convince me that Beyonce isn’t pregnant or hasn’t been pregnant. I know a pregnant woman when I see one. According to my source, this is not the first time, either. Mums the word. She has been wearing the oddest choices in clothing for months now. I know rumors always circulate, but the proof is in the pudding. It’s not just weight gain, because Beyonce would be in the gym by now knocking the weight off and proving us wrong as she has done time and time again. Jury of my peers, I enter into evidence Exhibit A, B, C, D:

Old School Friday: Guitar Solos / Bass Solos

Posted by on May 22, 2008 in Videos | 15 comments

So I didn’t want to do Prince, and I didn’t want to do Jimi Hendrix again, so I decided it was time for my alter ego to shine. I am a complicate woman, and I like a lot of things, and although I am a juke joint baby, I’m also the product of an all girl private school where I was one of only three blacks in my class, and so I have an eclectic and sometimes eccentric mix of music and styles. So check out John and Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers on the guitar and bass during this song, Under the Bridge.

I had to add this artist after coming across his name at Believer 1964. This song always tugs at my heart because of the story behind the song. Listen to the guitar, I can just listen to the instrumentals and be moved. Eric Clapton, Tears In Heaven.

Did The Daily Kos Go Overboard With Depicting Michelle Obama As A KKK Victim

Posted by on May 22, 2008 in Politics | 4 comments

The Daily Kos is a liberal blog, even more left than I would ever dream to be. While reading over at Electronic Village, I came across this picture. After a moment of shock I had to research and find out what was going on at the Daily Kos. Apparently they feel the Republicans are unfairly attacking Michelle Obama (I couldn’t agree more) by taking her words out of context and painting her as un-American, whatever that means. So the Daily Kos likened the Republican party to the Ku Klux Klan, and actually photshopped a picture to drive their point. However, the Daily Kos, in my opinion, went too far by actually depicting Michelle Obama as a Ku Klux Klan victim. Am I the only one that feels this was unnecessary? If you saw this picture out of context what would you think?

Rumor Alert: Usher & Tameks File For Separation

Posted by on May 22, 2008 in Celebrity Couples, Juicy Gossip | 10 comments

I hope this is a made up rumor, and I have to cite the source because I haven’t found any supporting evidence. According to TheYBF.com Usher filed for separation from Tameka 3 weeks ago. Normally I don’t get caught up in idle gossip (ok that’s a lie, I just don’t usually post it) but this one is too shocking to keep to myself. Although I love to pick on Tameka, it’s nice to see Usher trying to step up and do the right thing. Marriage is hard and he’s had to battle so many demons once he became involved with her. What do you think, do you think it’s just a rumor? I’ve seen them together a lot lately. I’m sure we will find out the truth soon. Anyway to read more click here…
