Are you Meeting the Browns this weekend?

So Meet the Browns is officially out in theaters today. A friend and I discussed the whole Tyler Perry reign. Am I supporting the movie because he's black, he asked. I guess my answer would be YES, I know he is truly talented but the fact that he's black does play a major role. This man has brought many of black families together with his plays (can't take another though), and Iwill definitely support the big screen , will you?
I wonder what the soundtrack has in store? Does anyone know of any other screen writers doing their thing, let me know so we can start supporting?

Randomly Me

So I'm back once again after vacationing in beautiful Pensacola Beach, Fl. Let me just say I was definitely in my element...nice hotel (with a beach front view)...check, great food...check, ghetto clubs...check!!! I know you noticed I didn't mention the mall...well you can't have everything you want. Back to the you know, no one parties like Fl., they have their own type of swag, like a little hood to the max mixed with a bit of countriness. I enjoyed the hood music the most which reminded me of Smallbany (local artist performing in the middle of the club)!!! Some local female artists remixed Hood Ni**a and the club was on a whole notha level!!! It seemed like all the Fl. guys are dreaded, but its all good. I'm sure you're wondering how am I vacationing with no job...answer...Everyday I'm Hustlin, Hustlin (inside joke). Which takes me to my next point...

I have a job (insert excitement...really not really). Why is this job starting at 7:30, at least its close to the house!!! I am trying to move forward with a positive attitude towards work in general. I am still certain I will have my dream job soon!!!

On another note I finally got everything straight to complete my graduate degree. I will be taking courses on line which is totally new for me. I'm trying to move from the area of procrastination to the area of prioritizing. I'm actually a list person, when I write out a list I tend to get everything done but without it, I'm lost!!! Hopefully I'll stick to my guns and try to complete my work on Sundays and have the rest of the week less stressful.

I got GREAT news today, Erykah Badu will be performing in the DMV area. You know I can not contain my happiness!!! Not sure if I want to go to the inside concert or the outside. I will be posting very soon my review of her new album (planned to do so but that damn procrastination) I can not believe so many people have been sleeping on this. WAKE UP (from Spike Lee's movie)!!!

So my computers still acting up, so I took it to Best Buy today. The guy gave me a new cord (Lyric chewed the last and wires were exposed), he also tried to sell me more ram at $149.99 with installation of $35.00, and $29.99 to compress files. I said I would come the next day for the $29.99 service since it seemed to be ok. Lo and behold my computer was fixed (so I thought), only to get back home and brake again...ain't that a ...!!! So please keep my computer and efforts to get a new one, in your prayers...It is officially on the sick and shut in list!!!

A Family Affair

As I was heading to the mall I saw Keyshia Cole's Family Affair coming on, so you know I had to drop my plans and make it do what it do. I was soooo hooked to this show last season and very excited to get another view!!! Although I'm a reality show addict, I appreciate the shows' good quality drama, always touched on topic you could relate to

*Crack-head family member
*Marriage Drama
*New found success
*Unplanned Pregnancy
*Need for Counseling

The list goes on and on, way too many issues to name that we all face. This show is a great example that stars are just like us and is very relate-able. Keyshia gave some much needed advice to all that watched...LET IT GO, this is like my new mantra (before she said it, the preacher preached on it). I am sooo happy for the growth and maturity in Keyshia Cole, we all know she was once a HOT MESS, people can and do change for the best!!! I wish her much success and if you don't have her new album you gotta get it. In the voice of Frankie...HOLLA
