Home away from bloggin' home

I'm taking this from a book I read to C.J. every night to tell you all how much your words mean to me:

"Well I have a thing to yell you and it won't take long the way I feel about you is kind of a song... " When I go chill with Dreamy I can always hear the Isley brothers in the background. She's like a good old school song, always making you happy. "Voyage to Atlantis" The Isley brothers (I adore this song, MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE)

Fresh and Fab is the perfect addiction, too bad there is no song about loving an addiction. Oh Wait there is "Rehab" Amy Crackhouse

Elle is a fashion wizard. I'm 10x's more fabulous (a hard thing to achieve as I was already pretty fierce, TOOOT TOOOT) "Upgrade You" Beyonce.

Her blog is too much, these last few weeks I have been amused, though she hasn't posted in awhile (side eye at ya!) we both love Hip Hop so here is some old school for ya GURL! Next time you are face to face with the hammer remember this:
"Punk jump up to get beat down" Brand Nubian

12Kyle was the hardest, but I knew this was the right choice. We both share a love for the Roots. So what better than the best song performed by the Amazing Roots Live. "Water" The Roots
Yo, you need to walk straight masta ya high
Son you missing out on what's passin' ya by
I done see these streets suck a lotta cats dry,
but not you and I my N,
We got to get, c'mon over, over, the water

This woman does it all, blog daily, comment on other blogs, raises two lovely girls, and just in general takes care of business. So to you I dedicate "Superwoman" Alicia Keys.

Funny, confident and honest. Nothing says that like my girl PCD "Golden" Jill Scott

The first line of this song says it all about F.U. "I don't want to hear that Bull Shit, I want to hear that official shit....." that's why I love it there, no BS. "Impossible" Kanye West (No vid for this but I like these two stuffed animals and ipod still)

This girl cracks me up. Its funny to virtually meet someone who you can agree with on almost everything they write. Well Keiya and I gets down like that.... HAHAH. I knew she was it when I saw her Hands off Assata T-shirt (which I also own). So here you go girl "Assata" Common

  • Keith
    Keith is the truth! And he's a Kappa so I have to love him...But that's not why I do. I love this blog because its a real life perspective on his world. No 'effin pretense (ala Beyonce in dream girls, heheh) smooth like Jazz. "Blue Monk"Thelonius monk

The words best to describe how I feel about her blog is HOOKED! She has this amazing story and I can't wait week to week to read the next part. She is a master of words. And who is the deadliest lyricist in my opinion (and dearest to me). That's right Nas. And here is where he proved it:

Didn't I just shout you out... no song for you! I'm kidding. My new favorite song for one of my new favorite blogs.
"I decided" Solange. Plus the video is just fabulous

Mrs.Manny Ramirez
No one could ask for a better sister. She is awesome (and BTW I shouted you out before, so no vid for you either)
"We are family" Sister Sledge *Please do yourself a favor and watch this one)

Lena (sorry girl some how you were missing when it posted).
This is probably the most emotional of all the sites. I felt like smacking a few people when I first started reading my girlz blog but she is growing and realizing more and more that you have to take life and make it work for you. So to you Dear Lena I dedicate a great song "A rose is still a rose" Aretha Franklin

Pretty Black ( I hate blogger right now, I posted this one first!)
My Gurl is 100% West Coast, but I for her I had to take it to the dirty dirty. She is Real with every word she lays to paper and this song is all her. Raw beat, with sweet knowledge. "Da Art of Storytelling" Outkast

Miz Represent Her blog is full of insight. Whenever I visit one of the blogs she writes for I find myself looking at the woman I am, looking forward to the woman I want to be. She is a blessing: "ME" Tamia


Lena said...

*gives you side eye* so it's like that uh? Pssh.
But... I think you made lovely song choices. I love most of these songs and/or artists. Especially Superwoman and Golden.

The Dreamy One said...

She W0rd Hustlez said...

ETHER!!!! Shit, I'm honored, because Nas was FIRE on that song, and I was hooked to it for yearrrrsss. Thank you so much girl. Now I'm going to check out all the blogs you mentioned here, because now I'm curious.

The Jaded NYer said...

A Go Bytch said...

Go B.

Lena said...

Yea, that's more like it. Hmph!

Girl, I still feel like smacking some people when I actually blogging about them, lol. But I am growing and making life work for me. I use to love this song when it came and haven't heard it a while. This is my new theme song for the week.

PCD (Pretty Circle Drawer) said...

yippy!!! golden is truly the theme...so thanx for my award *doing a curtsy then busting out into the butterfly and ending with a moonwalk*

PrettyBlack said...

I didn't get a DAMN song! hahaha! But that's okay...Songs speak to who people are and the songs you've picked shows you have some pretty good people visiting your blog.

PrettyBlack said...

I LOVE IT! I forgot all about this...I must dig into my crates...Thank you...it is appreciated and on point!

Mizrepresent said...

Awe girl, that was so lovely and you are a blessing to me too! I've been trying to see this post for like 4 days, since you alerted me, but for some reason it wasn't showing up...thank you lady. have a great weekend!
