His Eye Is On The Sparrow...

Lauryn Hill. Maybe she'll come back when Whitney does and they'll tour together. Let us pray...

(With Tanya Blount in "Sister Act 2")

And my favorite from her...

Poetic Justice...

Woo...So, Jessica Care Moore. She's one of those people that touches you once and you're never quite the same afterwards. I don't keep up with her. I don't know anything about her. I just know that when I was a teenager, I caught her on Showtime @ The Apollo one night, and it changed the way I viewed myself. It made me think more, hope more, and expect more of myself.

She won like a bazillion times and I'm sure she holds some record still today. This was the first poem I heard her recite and I remember printing the words to this and memorizing it. I still know it by heart:

("Black Statue of Liberty")

That was followed the next week by "Black Girl Juice," which still blows my mind.

That was more than 10 years ago I'm sure, and here's something more recent:

("Warriors Walk Alone")

The Black People's Show

Like a moth to a flame...

It's a shame they have Janet Jackson on the cover of magazines talking about how much weight she's gained recently. Leave the bitch alone. Let her eat what she wants, and lounge around with her man Jermaine in Atlanta all she wants. She deserves the break after singlehandedly helping countless couples reproduce in the 90s. You or someone you know conceived 2 or 3 of your children on this song alone...

Ha, that takes me back. Jennifer Lopez was ethnic. Cassette tapes...existed. Janet called people "boo." Shawnette was still "straight."

Ah, memories.

What y'all doin? Sanging!

It's a shame this vid clip has an audio sync problem. Cause even though Gina and Pam are actin' a fool, it's a rare chance to see just how great these two women can SANG!

Remember before Martin even thought about havin' a tv show, Tisha Campbell and Tichina Arnold were workin' it OUT in "Little Shop of Horrors":

show me...the kniii...iiife.

i originally chose a scene from "the Golden Child" because of the description it had next to it on youtube:

"In this scene, the eddie murphy character turns down an offer of booty by the charlotte lewis character. this would never happen in real life."

haha, so true. so true.

that scene has since been taken down...buuuut, here's the trailer where you can see sort of what im talkin bout willis...

damn now i know why i always asked my mom to find the vhs of this movie when i was kid. cause it was a crazy ass movie but DAMN, look at that bitch.

ahem, i gotta remember which blog im posting on;-)

member when he tried to get into Ashley's pants on The Fresh Prince?

ok...remember coming home from 7th grade, taking your backpack off, falling back on your bed and pushin' "play" on the cd/tape player combo you had (you know you did)...and this song coming on...

...chased all your school blues away, didnt it? :-)

yeah we all figured he was gay--and some of us figured WE were gay too--but it didnt matter. you still bought Word Up! magazine and put his mini posters on your wall. and you still answered back when he sang, "can we talk...for a minute?"

what's love got to do with it?

sometimes you just gotta work shit out:

in case you haven't figured this out, do NOT piss off Angela Bassett...

Monday, July 2, 2007

were there every really any, though?

i ADORE this themesong...

...but let us examine these lyrics, shall we?

"just lookin' out of the window, watchin' the asphalt grow

thinkin' how it all looks hand-me-down


keepin' your head above water, makin a wave when you can

temporary layoffs--


easy credit rip-offs--


scratchin' and survivin'


hangin' and a-jivin'


aint we lucky we got em?

GOOD TIMES! aaaaahhhh. yeah."

hmmm...ok...really? those were good times? the time when wanda had to eat cat food cause she couldnt afford to pay her rent, good times? when j.j. got shot. good times? when penny got burned with the iron. good times? when that blind dude ripped off the evans' with that encyclopedia scheme? good times?

member when michael failed that test cause it was made for white kids? good times?

member when thelma had that crackhead friend who would get high/drunk in their bathroom? good times?

and speaking of the bathroom. i could never figure out where everyone slept. cause what i saw were two doors. one door led to the parents' room. and one led to the bathroom. was thelma's room supposed to be on the other side of the bathroom? did you have to go to the bathroom, then go through a secret passageway to get to her room? im just sayin.

and wilona. gotta love wilona. i wish when i came over to my friends house for a couple of minutes, they'd all clap for me when i left. that'd be hot.

and why did the mama always YELL her lines? and then her voice cracked at the end of each sentence?

i liked james though. he and wilona were the only ones who could act.

then they killed him.


good tiiiiiiiiimes! yeah.

Tupac 2-pack

i remember going across town in Dallas when this album came out, and getting it on vinyl. yep. vinyl y'all. it was a big deal. 2pac was in jail and this single was the best thing my ears/soul had heard in a long time. years later, its still as touching. it still makes me think of my brother and my mom and how we lived when i was growing up. gotta love this...

"Dear Mama"

something about the way he describes his tv really tugs at my heart. take a picture, i dont get this sentimental very often:-)

"Unconditional Love"

sinners have soul too...

black people at their finest. this clip always makes me proud. proud of the acting, the singing, the fact that a movie that came out so many years ago and has a 99% black cast was nominated for Oscars and has done so well commercially.

you dont have to be religious for this scene to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside...

from "The Color Purple."

Michael has GOT to GO :-)

you gotta love "The Office." and even though you dont want to, you've also gotta adore the main character, Michael.

this is what happens when Michael uses yesterday's post on Your Daily Ebony Moment for material to use at the office...

niggas have GOT to GO!

i have a feeling Chris Rock will be featured on this blog more than anyone else. he's funny, smart, and most of all: he's RIGHT.
