Meaningless Observation: Derelict Buildings in 90s Music Videos

I noticed a theme in a few 1990s music videos.  Derelict buildings were used as the back drop for a lot of the videos of the time.  I researched my theory and I realized that the  musical group Prodigy is responsible for a lot of that imagery.  It looks like all of their videos wereContinue reading “Meaningless Observation: Derelict Buildings in 90s Music Videos”

More Feminist Confusion

The feminists are at it again.  These people are harder to understand than calculus.  Music producer Jermaine Dupri made a comment that most female rappers today make songs about the stripper life.  Social media feminists got upset for some reason and somehow Jermaine Dupri has become a prudish hypocrite in their minds even though theirContinue reading “More Feminist Confusion”

#teambreezy/Confessions

Chris Brown shot his mouth off in a recently released new track and it’s got the Black gossip blogs on You Tube in a tizzy.  He said something to the affect of he only has sex with Black women with nice hair.  How sweet.  Lucky them.  That song lyric has started a poop storm.  I’mContinue reading “#teambreezy/Confessions”

90s Songs Based on Mental Illness and Depression: Volume II

  I published a list of 90s pop songs based on mental illness and depression earlier today.  I thought of a few more so I decided to make a second list.  Please enjoy.   Offspring, Self Esteem This is a song about a man that stays in an emotionally abusive relationship with a woman becauseContinue reading “90s Songs Based on Mental Illness and Depression: Volume II”

90s Songs Based on Mental Illness and Depression

  The passing of Bushwick Bill of the Geto Boys made me think of the hip hop classic “My Mind is Playing Tricks on Me”.  I began to ponder if other 90s tunes were based on psychotic episodes.  I came up with a short list.  The list is random and not ranked. Geto Boys, MyContinue reading “90s Songs Based on Mental Illness and Depression”

Celebrities are Starting to Look the Same

Celebrities are starting to all look the same to me.  I feel like RuPaul and or LaToya Jackson are the standard of beauty that the rest of Hollywood wants to reach. What do you think? I actually could have added a few more people to this composite.

The Legacy of Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King is being honored today across the US.  MLK is a trending topic on social media, news outlets are rehashing stories about the Civil Rights movement and publicizing community events to honor the fallen leader.  Martin Luther King’s story is amazing and absolutely heroic.  But I feel like his legacy is being tarnishedContinue reading “The Legacy of Martin Luther King”

Love Lies

My favorite genre of music is R & B.  The unfortunate thing about that is that it doesn’t really exist anymore unless you listen to older music.  Most of what passes for R & B these days are Hip Hop hybrids like Drake makes.  I enjoy Drake but he’s not real R & B toContinue reading “Love Lies”

My Prince Memories – Shannon in Kansas City

I found out that Prince died on Thursday morning.  I was working in my restaurant and a customer told me the news.  I was absolutely shocked.  Prince hadn’t seemed to age in about fifteen years.  He seemed to be the picture of health to me.  Many people are thinking about retirement at age fifty sevenContinue reading “My Prince Memories – Shannon in Kansas City”
