Fanon on true love

the fact remains nevertheless that true love, real love -i.e. wishing for others what one postulates for oneself when this postulate integrates the permanent values of human reality -requires the mobilization of psychological agencies liberated from unconscious tensions.......... today we believe in the possibilty of love and that is why we are endeavoring to trace its imperfections and perversions.

in honor of me

You know it doesn't make much sense
There ought to be a law against
Anyone who takes offense
At a day in your celebration
Cause we all know in our minds
That there ought to be a time
That we can set aside
To show just how much we love you
And I'm sure you would agree
It couldn't fit more perfectly
Than to have a world party on the day you came to be

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthdayi

What is love?

Love is always pretty when real life isn't involved.

Black History: Lost, Stolen, or Strayed

I just saw an amazing video. Perhaps it got amazing, like really amazing, toward the end. "Black History: Lost, Stolen, or Strayed," starring Bill Cosby. The ending really did something to my insides. And, I wonder if people have really seen this video. Its shows Cosby in a DIFFERENT time and place.... perhaps sheds some perspective or gives way to questions on how he sees Black America today. The video was made in 1968. Where is John Churchill and the Freedom Liberty Day School today?

yes i'm talking to you

i'm not sad ne more.

its freezing and i don't even know it!

I'm sad today. Well realy since like about an hour ago. Nothing seems to be going my way. I know I must count my blessings, be grateful for what I am blessed to have, and to not give power to my problems. Huh...but.

In Jesus name, I'll speak and see you all later. If I don't get to kiss the kids, hug them for me. I wanted to spend a lot more time with you all. But it's now down to me, and this was reinforced during this break. This is what this time has called for, thus this is what I will accept. God-willing, we'll always have tme to hang owt. Shame on you cold weather!

I wanted to dance. I could have alone, but I didn't want to. Hopefully all is well. Shame on you cold weather!

I saved your number under Don't Answer!. It now reads DONT ANSWER. I've just no patience, and I just don't wanna get ne with you. Each time I pick up I have momentary amnesia and later almost every time, the reality God-Fairy snaps me back. I keep telling myself nuthing can be that serious to just cut it all off, but this is my umpteen attemot at trying to cut it off so, if at first u dont succeed try again. Hope ur keeping warm. BYE!

arrgh...gimme my picha!

or i'll just let time go bye and/or watch martin, laugh, and be aight.

Haiku #7

she was always there

but no one knew it until

she flew far away

they say: oh you'll be aight...

in retrospect
perhaps i didn't know respect
and now i introspect
and reflect

my quest
has caused a change in perspect
and at the end of it
i live.

Nigerian Movies

I was watching a Nija film last night with my father. My dad is a connoisseur of Nigerian movies. The previous night we were watching "Two Can Play that Game," and my dad swore that this film had taken their ideas from the Nigerian film; i believed otherwise. So, he decided to show me the Nigerian movie, so I could see how much the two films were similar. The Nigerian movie pretty much remade the American movie adding minor variations with a sprinkle of twists and turns. Come to find out the American film was made in 2001 and the Nigerian film was made in 2003. Despite this information, my father insisted that the Nigerian film was the far mo' bettER of the two, without a doubt. I'm not too sure about that but what I am sure of is that is was the mo' funniER of the two. Read the following two classic quotes from the film. I'm sure you'll get a kick out of it :)

Background: Lady 1 and her friends just found out that Lady 1's boyfriend who just came back in to her life is getting married to another woman in the next week.

Lady 1: Aah James, you will never find happiness. You will never find favor before God and man.
Friends: Amen
Lady 1: For the rest of your life you will swim in troubled waters
Friend: James, may you rot in hell for what you did to my friend.
Lady 1: For the rest of your life, sorrow will be your companion
Friends: Amen
Lady 1: I will reduce you. I will reduce you to what you were when I met you. Ewooooo!


Background: A friend receives advice after he was recently caught in a restaurant with another woman by his girlfriend, after telling her he was "working late."

Friend 1: Look at this guy (chuckles). Lying, what is wrong with that. Lying is part of our everyday life. Woman like to be lied to...never tell a woman the truth.
Friend 2: Never tell a woman the truth?

Happy New Year!!

2009 is here and so am I.
Psalm 66
2 Sing the glory of his name;make his praise glorious!
3 Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you.
4 All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing praise to your name." Selah
5 Come and see what God has done, how awesome his works in man's behalf!
6 He turned the sea into dry land, they passed through the waters on foot— come, let us rejoice in him.
7 He rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations— let not the rebellious rise up against him.
8 Praise our God, O peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard;
9 he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping.
10 For you, O God, tested us; you refined us like silver.
11 You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs.
12 You let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.

13 I will come to your temple with burnt offerings and fulfill my vows to you-
14 vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke
when I was in trouble.
15 I will sacrifice fat animals to you and an offering of rams; I will offer bulls and goats.
16 Come and listen, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me.
17 I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished sin in my heart, he Lord would not have listened;
19 but God has surely listened and heard my voice in prayer.
20 Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!
