It has been one hell of a weekend in the United States of America, I guess the devil has came out to play. We are living in some strange days right now. I don't speak much on world issues.  I understand,but feel not to well versed to speak on it on this blog; but with these current events I feel like I need to say something. 

On Friday night June 11th 2016, Up and coming singer Christina Grimmie and a finalist on season six of the Voice was signing autographs outside her show in Orlando FL. A deranged man came to the meet and greet with two loaded  guns to the venue where Christina performed that night.  While signing autographs the shooter fired his gun killing Christina, the shooter was tackled down by Christina brother Marcus, the shooter ended up killing himself.

I didnt know much about this young lady until  this incident happened, from what I seen of her I saw pure talent, she got her start from youtube and seemed to be on her way. It is truly heartbreaking to see this happen to Christina or anyone. What boggles my mind is how this terrible person was able to get through security with not one, but two guns and a knife. 

Did we not just have a crazy shoot out happen in New York city at the T.I concert? Fans and artist a like should be able to feel safe during performances, and autographs signings after the show.  Christina was only twenty two years old. She had a young fan base that followed  her and they loved her. It is a shame that the fans had to witness that on friday night.

I am really annoyed with the security and police safety, that man along with everyone else should have been patted down and searched for weapons. I been to concerts where I had to give up pens and combs at  the front door and that was last year in  Phoenix AZ. So I don't see why this venue was so laxed on security, or I get it's a pop artist nothing like this can happen right? Well we see the outcome of that! Can't be too careful as we all can see, someone lost their life

I am sad for Christina, her family and her many fans who loved her, I am also sad that I did not get a chance to see her grow. 

Gone Too Soon........

Well going into the weekend also in Orlando FL late Saturday night early Sunday morning at night club that serves the LGBTQ community. A Gunman went into the night club during the pride and latin night at the club opened fire killing fifty people and injuring fifty three others. Allegedly the gunman saw two men kissing in Miami his son happened to see that as well and stories are floating that is what sparked his rage causing the gunman to go on a shooting spree.

It is being called an act of terrorism, being that the gunman was of muslim faith, he was killed by the Orlando police. I call it a pure act of hate, now I understand some lifestyles may rub some the wrong way and that is okay. we are not meant to be the same. But becuase this person does not like that person, it does not give anyone the right to play GOD no matter what the circumstances or situation maybe.

Homosexuality is not everyone cup tea and it don't have to be, but people are going to live their lives whether some of us like or not. Those people in that night club did not deserve that at all, no one no matter what their sexuality is should not be murdered while trying to have a good time.

It is so sad that this is happening in our world right now, kids can't walk to school without walking through a war zone in their own neighborhood. We are still marching and protesting for basic human rights and now people of certain life style have to live in fear becuase of who they are.

At the end of day we are one race and that is the human race, when we realize love is the answer maybe then we can finally breathe.

June 11th 1996 Mona Lisa released her debut 11-20-79

As I continue with my series of great albums of 1996, this album that I am featuring on this post is probably in my top 10 of  my top 100 favorite albums. I promise I will treat you all to that list one day soon, I have been mentally creating that list forever, as old albums stay the same, new albums come out so stay tuned. Anyway this album featured on today's post is an album that I still play on a regular basis to this day.

Movie soundtracks was big in the 90s, sometimes even bigger than regular albums, the Wayans brothers had this hilarious move called "Don't be a menace while drinking your juice in south central" a spoof on all the hood classic films in the 90s.  The soundtrack was even better, R&B singer Joe had one of the biggest hits that helped him become name in R&B. He had a song called "All The Things…

What's Going On?

I may talk about music and culture, It is my way to ease the pain with all the things I see going on in this world. But it is too much to ignore, last weekend there was bomb explosion in Mogadishu, Somalia. As of right now it has been reported that 300 lives has been lost due the terrorist attack.

I do my best to keep up with what is going on, whether it's in pop culture, local or national news. And with this recent terrorist attack. The one thing I don't see flooding up and down my time lines on my social media feed. Is  #PrayForSomalia, that is something that is very scarce across the feeds. But I bet your bottom dollar I can see the endless memes of bitches not being shit and its numerous likes.

That goes without fail, I posted a few links about this horrific incident and all I have heard is crickets. If I posted a joke and made fun of reality star. It would have been likes and comments galore. I am not tell…

1997 Part II

I was sixteen years old in 1997, music was life back then for me, and in that year I needed it more then ever, My freshmen year of high school was 1996 - 1997 and during that school year I was at a school I did not want to be at. In the city of Buffalo at that time, during 8th grade year students had to pick the top choices of the high school they wanted to go to. It was all based on grades during 7th grade year and first grade quarter of 8th grade.

Math was my weakest subject, and the schools that I chose at the time a student had to excel well in the area of math. And me not being on my A game it caused me to loose out on all of my choices of the schools I wanted to attend. So in fall of 1996 I was at my district school. While all my Jr. high friends was at the school of their choices living the high life.

I had to make a daily trip to south Buffalo, a place I did not want to be, what kept me calm to and from schoo…
