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…
