Coming From Where I’m From: The Tram Stamp (…of Approval)

As always I’d like to start out by saying thank you to my contributor for dedicating time and energy to do this for me. I feel your pride in this one. I like your twist on the “assignment” and so I’m keeping it as is. Without further delay I invite you on my tour with Unknown Black Male (check him out, because he’s funny, witty, and I luv him!). You’ve sold me on this one and one day you’ll be referred to as Known Black Male! Enjoy everyone.

I Learned From The Best

No matter what trials and tribulations Whitney Houston went through, I have a strong feeling she gave Bobbi Kristina The Greatest Love of All. I hope she is left with the fondest of memories. Now that you’re no longer around for her to Run To You, I pray her father will be strong enough and stable enough for her not to feel like “I Have Nothing“. I can only pray she finds comfort and support in family and close friends. No one can replace you in her life, you were the Queen of the Night (day, evening, dusk, dawn, queen of every damn thing in our childhoods). You reigned supreme!

Whenever I’d run through my iPod list and hear your voice, you made me feel like I Wanna Dance With Somebody! You had it like that! You made some choices and I was mad at you like I knew you! I realize It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay, we all make mistakes. You were an amazing woman and you will always be an amazing talent in our eyes, all of us who sang in choirs well we thank you for allowing us the delusions of grandeur. I used to dance around in my bedroom with a hair brush and pretend I was singing with you. So many of us tried to mimic your voice and perform for events like we were you, afterall we, myself included I Learned From The Best. I questioned like every other broken hearted girl Where Do Broken Hearts Go?” We checked into the Heartbreak Hotel, but we didn’t stay for long because you told us to take it Step By Step.

You had a miraculous voice, you were a Miracle and the soundtrack to many lives.  I wish all your adoring fans could have gone back to that One Moment In Time when you made the wrong decision, to help you walk away, but regardless I (personally) Will Always Love You!

Music Review: Everything, Everyday

Ugh, can someone die and make me video director, producer, concept maker, full control, I want to do it all.  Okay, Miss Keri looks gorgeous, Fab is just Fab!  Usually I’ll hear a song and it’s nothing to me, then I’ll see the video and it makes me appreciate it more.  This is not one of those times.  The song’s alright.  It’s lacking, not sure what, but I’m not feeling it.  I did check out the rest of the album and it has great beats.  Didn’t pay that much attention to the words.  The beats are good, I can see me rollin’ down Whyte Ave, sunroof open, gangsta lean on, mean muggin’ and scarin’ white folks!  Hahaha, can you picture it.  Lmao hahaha! I play too much!

Music: Ne-yo, Part of The List

In my eyes, musically, Ne-yo can do no wrong!  The man is crazy talented and continues to shut it down!  I enjoy this video and it’s explanation and connection to the previous song, “Mad”.  I read this quote today and it’s so true:

“Music is what feelings sound like.” – Author Unknown
