Embrace Your Inner N.E.R.D November 30, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — Sunny @ 11:59 pm

 

Today’s post, serves as tribute to one of my favorite groups ever, N.E.R.D, (No one Ever Really Dies),  an innovative group comprised of Chad Hugo, Pharrell Williams, and Shay Haley.   After your visit here, stop by WhySo\’s place (I’m thinking he’s going to pay tribute as well.)

Back in 2002,  I worked in the Probate Department of Providian National Bank.  My cute co-worker, Jesse (we crushed on each other) turned me on to all kinds of music because  I had my head buried in  nothing but Jay-Z and Wu Tang.  Anywho, one day, he put a N.E.R.D cd on my desk, “In Search Of . . .”   After listening,  I was hooked immediately.  These guys were so different; a little bit of  hip-hop, rock,  and weird beats  and I loved it.  My favorite song on that CD is Tape You . 

I played this CD out until “Fly or Die” was released in 2004.  This CD is a little more alternative and rock than the first.   My fav songs:  Jump feat. Good CharlotteBreak Out, and Thrasher.  Hell, I really wish I could post the entire cd.  This one is my ABSOLUTE FAV!

N.E.R.D released their third cd earlier this year, called “Seeing Sounds,” which includes Time for Some Action, Sooner or LaterWindows, and Yeah You (about a stalker chick. You’ve got to hear this one!)

I’ve posted a ton of links on here to introduce those who’ve never been exposed.  I hope you like them as much as me.,  if not, slit your wrists post haste.  J/K .  Overall, I hope I’ve turned you on to something new, just as Jesse did for me a while back.  Let me know your thoughts.  Ciao!

 

 

 

Today’s After-Thanksgiving Activities November 28, 2008

It’s the Day after Thanksgiving, you’ve ate well, gained 5 pounds… what do you do now? 

This day is nationally known as Black Friday, when you’re supposed to wake up at the crack of dawn and fight with 100 other customers over the 10 42″ RCA flat screens that have been discounted.

Well, no sir, not me…. As I’ve stated before, I hate shopping.  I’ll enjoy my day off by washing my hair, sitting on my couch and eating leftovers, and doing homework

How about you?  Enjoy your day!

 

Happy Thanksgiving! November 27, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — FlawedBeauty @ 1:12 am

More Than A Day As Thanksgiving Day rolls around,
It brings up some facts, quite profound.
We may think that we’re poor,
Feel like bums, insecure,
But in truth, our riches astound. We have friends and family we love;
We have guidance from heaven above.
We have so much more
Than they sell in a store,
We’re wealthy, when push comes to shove. So add up your blessings, I say;
Make Thanksgiving last more than a day.
Enjoy what you’ve got;
Realize it’s a lot,
And you’ll make all your cares go away. By Karl Fuchs

I’ma think about serving real dinner later!

Don’t be shy…Dig in.

Mimosa, Anyone?

Mimosa, Anyone?

My Thoughts:

1 – DWIGHT EUBANKS STOLE THE DAMN SHOW! He’s my favorite honorary Housewife (NeNe has runner up).  And, he’s got a reality show of his own in the making. Fave Quote: “Who is this wonderful person giving a fashion show with no fashions? How dreadful.”

And wasn’t he a true diva! and in his little time next to Kim was more of a friend to her than any of the other women have been. Telling her she needed to step it up with the wardrobe and hair. *snap* Bam!

Can't Wait!

2 – I ABHOR Kim. She such a lie! i could write so much more on all her wack-tivities but I’m sure you all saw it.

3 – I wanted to kick DeShawn off the stage – she was so boring.

4 – Sheree has not convinced me that She By Sheree will actually be coming out.

5 – Apparently, Lisa is NOT the one (in her own words, lol).

Just about everything that I expected, happened.

So, what are your thoughts on the Real Housewives of ATL Reunion show?

For your amusement (many of you may have seen this already as I posted it before on Comeback):

Yep, this is a second post for the day. 

Take a commercial break and enjoy N.E.R.D.

 

Nic’s Repeatable Movie Picks November 24, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — Sunny @ 11:59 pm

I am not a sensitive woman, so I don’t share tears easily… things have to be serious.  

I have an exception. The Color Purple takes me to infant status.   

I was at the hospital with my mom Sunday, (luckily she was on the phone).  When this part came on I cried like a biyatch! I covered it up like I was getting choked from coughing- slick one I tell ya.

This also made me cry:

But this is funny as hell:

I’ve seen this movie more times than I can count, and will STILL watch it over and over again.  There are very few movies I can repeat back to back, which include:

2.  Imitation of Life

3. Napoleon Dynamite (my repressed nerd just came out! LOL)

4.  Jerry McGuire

5.  The Break Up

These are my top 5 REPEATABLE movies.  What about you-do you have any? What scenes send you into tears?  Men, your emotions are welcome here.

 

There’s Something about…

Wood Harris

Wood Harris

It’s Saturday Night and I’m watching some movie on BET called Dirty in which ya boy Wood Harris acts. He’s not the best looking dude but his packaging is nice. I like him as an actor and he seems like a decent person (i.e. I haven’t read any gossip about him). I met him once a few years back (when he was on The Wire) and he was cool – took a picture with one of my friends and all that – even gave her his phone number.

No deep message here…just something about this dude.
