"New Day" Alicia Keys [Audio]

This new look is cute! Mature and fiercely feminine.

What y'all think about the song though?.. I'm not feeling it much, but I feel as though if it has a good vid, I'd like it on a real average level.

Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta Season 1, Episode 2... "And The Dumb Shit Continues!"

Did I not tell y'all last week that I would only watch episode 2 (after not even finishing one) only because these fools are good for blogging?!! The cast, nor production, ain't let me down one bit Monday night. Not one bit! The same foolishness from episode one continues: A lot of staged shit and bad acting.

Before getting into what I gathered from this episode, I do admit that I missed the first 7 or so minutes, so it is highly possible that I missed some great ratchet, hot mess bullshit that'll be missing from this post. So, sorry for any foolish goodness that's not included, y'all.

This week's episode majorly revolved around part of episode one that I missed: Stevie J and his "girl" Joseline being cozied up at K. Michelle's party and his on-again-off-again girlfriend of 15 years, Mimi, catching them in the, (quite openly), flirtatious act.  Karlie, a cast member that is trying to make it in the music biz, that just happens to be one of Mimi's road dogs from back in the day, told Mimi that Stevie J. and Joseline gots to be fuckin' from what she witnessed, sitting at the table with them at this party. I guess that caused Mimi to question him on it and a huge "Made for T.V." scene ensued with Mimi and Stevie arguing and Stevie and Joseline arguing and Mimi storming out of the venue and Joseline throwing a drink on him.... Ahhhhhhhh!!! Y'all bitches and these stuntin' ass shows is killin' me DEAD!!

I believe I mentioned last week how super corny I think Stevie J to be. (let's check back on that... Yes. CONFIRMED!! I mentioned that.) This is obviously a dude that suffered from a lack of pussy when growing up and or a lack of attention, in general. I'm seriously thinking it's a strong combination of both. 'Cause here we have like a (pushing on) 50 year old man playing these games out in the open. Affairs are SECRETS!!! Did he miss the memo?? I don't think he did. His old ass just wants the attention and feeling of gratification he gets from bitches going at it over him. Who the fuck takes the jumpoff anywhere near a place where people that are mutual friends with him and his girl will be?? Who the fuck takes the sidepiece to an event where he knows there's a good chance that his girl will show up?! Unless that sidepiece is well trained and knows how to play her position as simply his newest project and a dude is 10,000% sure of this, ain't no way in hot Hell a nigga would do such shit!

And let's be clear, I don't respect dudes that play these types of games, but if you out to play a game, please play that shit well.  I've seen niggas invite sidepieces to cookouts and shit... He pull up with the main chick and shit. And that jumpoff knows not to give the shit away. Most likely, she don't even want his ass besides a fuck or bread that he break off, so she ain't even tryna break up no "happy" home. Now, that! is some disrepectful, discreet type shit. The exact two ingredients that affairs consist of. What Stevie J is pulling is just plain old disrespectful and he is loving it!! His cheesy ass loves a good ole fashion argument with his girl about who else he fucking. As well as a good old argument with his side chick about whatever the hell jumpoffs and niggas argue about. Whether good or bad, it's all attention for his old, Attention Whore ass.

(Whew Lawd!!! I don't like that man and don't even know his ass!)

So, as a result of that whole party scene, Mimi wasn't talking to him and he went to assure her that him and Joseline ain't fucking. And the whole time he's grinning because he's lame like that. And she even entertains his dumb actions because she's obviously a Lame Lover like that. She steady hollerin' "Why you smilin'?!" and he stands across from her pretending to be trying his hardest not to smile while she speaks on such a serious issue. But, don't worry. He pacified her with the offer of a lifetime!!: "5% of the Joseline project!" (WHOA!!! Slow YA ROW!!! 5%?!!!!) But you know what?? Mimi's no fool. She straight bossed that deal, closing at 10%!!! Damn! That equates to.... (Hold up... Calculation in process. What's .10 x $0?)... NOTHING!!  What the fuck kinda deals this bitch out here brokering for herself?!! Stop!! Just stop!!!!! Get a lawyer.  Get an accountant, 'cause girlfriend, you fuckin' yaself up out here in these skreetz!

When she sat there with that stone-serious face talking about, "Nah... I want 5 from you and 5 from her!" My laughter was delayed a lil because I wasn't sure if she was just joking, or....?? Me and Stevie J had something in common to laugh about at that moment. Again: If I was her, he would been smacked and told "Get ya stupid ass the fuck up outta my shit!" (Warning: you can only smack up cheeseball niggas like a Stevie J. Please don't try that shit wit a real nigga.) But, bless her heart, as I pointed out last week, she just as stupid as she can wanna be. The resolution to this nigga disrespecting you right in front of your face is 10% of zero...??? (now if this Joseline bitch blow in the future, I'll be lookin' stupid. LOLzzz. I don't see it happening, though.)

So the Karlie chick, she invites Mimi over to continue talking about the whole blowup at the party between her, Stevie and Joseline. Mimi confirms that they are very much together. Karlie confirms that Steve and J are very much fucking (from her observations). And then she tells Mimi she badly wants to work with Stevie J for a "hit". Now. I truly believe in the saying, "It's never too late." I recently met a lady that got to be pushin' mid to late 50's that told me she graduated last Spring with her Master's degree. She said it took 7 consecutive years, but she did it! Started from the Bachelor's... From scratch... 7 years... Done already lived at least a good 60%+ of her natural life expectancy but still, she went back to achieve something that was important to her in life. I think that's beyond dope! Determination is quite a force to be reckoned with...

But, getting back to Karlie... Ma'am. (Gotta keep it respectful when addressing your elders) You are about a good 42?... I wouldn't give you no more than 45. But, definitely in your early 40's somewhere. And, honeychild, you look damn good for your age! But just what kind of music are you planning to give to the masses?? o.O Unless you trying to come out on some Kem shit or some other type of super laid back, Jazz type shit, I don't think you'd be well-received. Not coming from no hater, either. I'm simply telling you how it is, miss.  And you probably got it fucked up in your mind, because you see the stars of yesteryear that you grew up listening to and admiring and you think that since they in their 40's now and still doing shows when they can and people still love them, that you can do the same. But, it don't quite work like that, mami. (Just don't quite work like that.) If you had a fan base since you were in your teens, 20's or even early 30's, they tend to follow you through your career. And in addition to those that remained faithful to your art from the beginning, over the years you pick up more and more generations of fans. So, yes, you can be a 40 year old star. Jumping into the pool at 40, though?.... (I don't know...)

And why does she think Stevie J can make it happen for her? And even if he can, why would she want him to make it happen for her?! Has she no PRIDE?! After she done put this man and his affair on blast to her "friend", why would she look for any favors from him?! My pride would not allow it. But, I suppose it's different strokes for different folks, huh?

Just after Joseline told Stevie, "No fairy godmother this month." and the two's lil spat over the difference between being 3 weeks late and an entire month late, Mimi enters the studio and lets it be known that she owns 10% of the Joseline Project! ANNNNNNDDD that means, she runnin' shit. And not Joseline and that Joseline ain't got no business telling Karlie (as she did earlier in the show) that she is numero uno on Stevie's roster and that Karlie will be working with her bf of 15 years, whether Stevie likes it or not and wether his mistress likes it or not. (Told her, didn't she?!.. CLOWN SIT DOWN!! Mimi needs to take a seat!) But did y'all peep Mimi and Stevie's greeting when she came up to the piano, where him and J was sitting though? Tell me that shit ain't look awkward and fake as hell!!

After this scene, Joseline pays Karlie a visit at the gym to tell her to not talk to Mimi about her and to also remind her that she is 1st priority with Stevie and Karlie will only work with him if she says so. As someone mentioned on Twitter: That's how you know this shit is scripted. How the fuck, outta all the gyms in Atlanta, did Joseline know this particular lil gym would be where Karlie works out and at what time she'd be there?? (Peculiar, right?) Staged like a mofo!

So, Karlie, who is supposed to be Mimi's friend, I thought... Tells Joseline that it's not her that be talking about Joseline; it's Mimi. And she also goes on to say that the two women need to let her know which is Stevie's manager because one it saying she can work with him and the other is saying she can't. What the fuck is wrong with this lady?! If Mi is ya girl, you don't go telling this bitch Mimi was talking about her. And you also don't go telling this bitch that her and Mi is both pulling Stevie in different directions. She talking to this chick like she's her friend and not Mimi. That conversation should have at the very least been nothing said at all from Karlie's end but a few "Um hmm...Okay.."'s. At the most, she should have cursed Joseline's ass out. "Bitch, don't be interrupting my fuckin' workout with this bullshit!"

Oh, and Joseline ain't do shit to help those transexual rumors when she said that she hopes someone nice and young taps Karlie's ass. Immediately I thought to myself, "Why don't you do it Joseline?? You know she'd be no match for your masculine strength?..." Then secondly I thought, "Maybe because her  fairy godmother ain't show..." Then I thought, "Naahhhhhh! She just knows it's wrong for her to beat a bitch down when she is naturally stronger."

And because of the absence of her "fairy godmother", Joseline took a pregnancy test, which she later produced straight from her handbag for her (alleged) baby daddy to witness. And as is his corny steez, Stevie J began to speak as if she made a mistake with some other guy and she has to think of her career and blah, blah, blah... (This dude really works my nerves) And why is he stuck in the 90's/early 2000's with the matching Gucci hat and shoes?? That what that real money do for ya?? And how about when he grabbed his d*ck talking about if Joseline wanted 50%. (Disturbing.)

Okay... Scrappy. He lives with his baby mama!!! (What in the world is going on?!) Anyways, he says that his career is stressing him out. The lack thereof, or....???? And you know, I thought I almost remembered one of his songs the other day too... "Meet me in the square...It's goin' d'ahn!.." But then I remembered that was Young Joc...

The Dream Gets Sued For An Accident He Was Not Involved In!!

According to TMZ, a woman in Georgia suffered multiple, lasting injuries from a car crash in which her vehicle was T-boned and ended on its side, sliding down the street. This woman has since sued the guy who was behind the wheel of the car that T-boned her as well as The Dream.

From TMZ:
Elaine Nowells filed a suit in Georgia, claiming one of Dream's record label employees, Patrick Thrall, T-boned her car while running a red light at a four-way intersection back in June 2010. Nowells claims the accident was so brutal, the car was knocked on its side and slid down the street.Nowells claims she broke her back in the accident and suffered mental and physical pain due to "the shock, fright and terror she experienced." She claims she suffered permanent injuries and says her medical expenses are through the roof.
Nowells filed her suit against Thrall ... but added The Dream and his company as defendants as well. She alleges that since Thrall was on-duty at the time, they can all be held financially responsible. The Dream himself dropped TMZ an email to say, "Pat Thrall Is NOT an EMPLOYEE of Radiokilla Records, IDJ, or any of its affiliate companies. He is an independent contractor (engineer) who was on the way to his hotel when the accident occurred. We are sorry to hear about her injuries and we hope she gets better." He added, "We are almost certain that her attorneys put pressure on her to file a lawsuit. Unfortunately, that's the NEW American Dream. Can't win in life, sue someone who can."

Even if this guy was on Dream's label, just why in the hell would The Dream be responsible for his actions?! Dream got the right idea. People stay schemin' on a easy come up. SMH (I, myself, play the Lotto for my chance.)

Melanie Fiona Performs "4 A.M" And Answers A Few Questions With Huffington Post [Video]--Updated

Melanie Fiona, the young lady with the stunning good looks and powerhouse voice, recently sat down with Huffington Post and revealed her musical icons and inspiration, as well as did a little singing.

She notes Sam Cooke and Whitney Houston as her favorite vocal talents and says she admires Lauryn Hill for her versatility, Bob Marley for his message and Sade for her class. And I totally agree with that list!

Melanie has it all: Looks and vocals. ("All" a recording artist needs) So, why do I feel as though she isn't as famous as she should be??? It may have a lot to do with keeping to what she believes in and not letting some record company "create" her. She even mentions that she's not worried about a No. 1. I think that is so badass! (Go, Mel!!)

Update!!! I had to remove the videos because Huffington Post ain't allowing their vid content off their site! (grrrr!) click above to be redirected.

An Elderly Bus Monitor Suffers Extreme Harassment By Kids!! [Video]

This is sooooooo, extremely disturbing!!

Karen Klein is a 68 year old, school bus monitor in New York.  And she recently took a LONG bus ride with a group of bad ass kids. These kids call her fat, sweaty, old any another hurtful thing their little minds can think up, as well as touch on her!!

This video is sad to see. And I wish she had some great- grands, nieces or nephews that can meet these little bastards at the bus stop and commence to whippin' ass!! What she endured on that ride is probably an everyday occurrence for her. SMH

"Bad Girls (Remix)" M.I.A ft. Missy Elliott & Rye Rye [Audio]

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta: BOOTLEG BULLSHIT!!

Yes... BOOTLEG. BULLSHIT. ('kay..)

When I say bullshit!!! This damn premiere was so shitty, in fact, that I cut that shit slam off right in the middle! And I wanted to see when Stevie J's girl got him out the back of the car with his lil "mistress" too! They showed that before a commercial break and it looked funny as hell, but I couldn't even stomach it long enough to actually get to that part in the damn show!

But first can I give a lil character breakdown from what I see?...

Stevie J: MAD CORNY!! The first damn scene when he took his girlfriend of 15 years!! (I'll get on that bullshit a lil later.) to a house that he plans to get for her and their 2 year old daughter and he said, "I love you." in what, I suppose, was SUPPOSED to come off as sexy/pouty... I wanted to fuckin' BARF!!! That look was so fuckin' repulsiiiiivvvvvve!!! REPULSIVE!! And cheesy!! All I could think is: Had I been his girl at that moment, he would have been snatched off that damn counter or smacked dead in the face in the most violent way I could possibly muster! (Turn off times 90 trillion!! UGH!!) And I should have turned then, but I THOUGHT the show would go on to be something I'd maybe enjoy. So, I didn't. (Big mistake!)

Dude also puts on blast that he is dating this latina "chick" that Look'aLikeAMahn (Ms. Chin-style). Again: CORNY!!! Who the fuck does that?! The mistress is to be a lil secret, I thought. But his cheesy ass allows a camera crew to record him and this chick Joselyn or Joseline (or however the hell she spells it) in a studio alone, hugging and kissing and shit. And at one point during that scene he motions for her to get up while a song that she recorded is playing. And he sits back like he the pimp of the year and takes in her wack moves like this cheesy shit is capping off a good night. DUDE!!!! YOU IS KILLIN' MEEEEEEE!!! Yeah. He may have a lil bit of ends and all, but really??... He needs to invest a bit more wisely: GO TO COOL NIGGA SCHOOL or some shit. (Or is that kinda like the same thing as "You can't buy class"?? Nigga can't buy no cool, 'parently.)

Being a (recent) fan of Love & Hip Hop, I can say Stevie J plays the part of a Jim Jones. He's super wack and nothing at all like Jim, but I see the parallel Vh1 was pressed to attempt to create, as well as  Jocelyn playing the role of Atlanta's Somaya Reece.

Stevie J's girl (I don't know her name): She's just a damn brick! Or at least she acts a smart as one... She says that she has been with this dude for 15 years! 15!! And cries and complains that he sees other women. Chile, GET OVER IT!! Or GET ON WIT' IT! You been stayed for 15 damn years through all the cheating and shit! If you ain't like it, or if you currently don't like it, step off. Simply as that! But, nooooooo!! He got the dough. So, she stays. I am sure that is the only reason that she stays. 'Cause I damn sho' can't see what she'd love about that face! When you got an ugly dude with an ugly 'tude... What the fuck could make you want to keep close to that?! NOT A DAMN THING!! But when you got an ugly motherfucka with an ugly attitude and some good money... Biiiiiitttccccch! You ain't said nothin'! We know why the hell you staying. That ass is paid for. Can't knock the hustle, but please stop putting on the shows like you just love him so much you can't let go! Especially when he fuckin' this damn tranny right in front of yo face!

Another pressed Vh1 character parallel: Stevie's girl tries to act like Chrissy (Jim Jones' girl/fiance/wife). If you saw the show, you would have noticed, as I did, that her mannerisms while talking one-on-one with the cam is very much like Chrissy. The talking with the hands and the head... Chrissy all the way! (Or maybe Yandy..) That shit is too much! I understand Vh1 just want to keep the ball rolling because the original Love & Hip Hop was so popular, but please don't introduce "new" people that simply try to imitate the original cast. That shit's dumb!

Scrappy: The rapper from the early 2000's.. I can't even think of any of his songs right now, but I remember the face. Him and his daughter's mother are another couple on the show. I can't stand that she sat down and asked him about that shit as far as Diamond cheating on him and leaving him for Soulja Boy. I mean... really?..really?? That shit was like Spring 2011 news! I have no idea when this show was recorded, but I am sure Vh1 wrote the script for that to be included. NOBODY CARES!!! When that "scandal" hit the 'net last year ain't nobody give a shit! I guess the production folks thought that someone somewhere wanted to know from Scrappy exactly what happened and how he felt when it did. NOBODY CARES!!! It ain't like Beyonce cheated on Jay and left him. People (myself included) would care about that shit. But, we talking about a rapper that had one or two songs over a decade ago. STOP IT!! And again, I wanted to turn, but thought "Surely this show can't be this shitty all the way through." AND I WAS WRONG! It got more shitty, indeed.

Scrappy's mama:  All I can say is... WHAT THEE FAWK?! They come on tv talking about she used to be a dope dealer and a pimp and shit! (Spare me!!) And then she says that Diamond's cooch was stank and shit! Just a mess!

And more Vh1 bullshit: Scrap's mom is supposed to be the Mama Jones of da South. She even has her own catch phrase: "And in that order!"

After Stevie J. and that Joseline chick in the studio, I turned that shit off. I couldn't stand nomo'! So, I didn't catch any other folks in the cast, but an artist named Michelle K. (I think) is also on the show. I don't know if she's already obtained a record deal or if she still shoppin', but we can all see she is the Olivia of ATL. Vh1 is reachin' mighty hard and that's that shit I DON'T LIKE!!

And just a tiny, lil more.. I heard after Charlamagne gave Stevie J. "Donkey of The Day" yesterday, saying that he's fuckin' with "RihannaMan"/a transexual, Joseline then took to Twitter and posted a naked picture of herself in an attempt to prove she is 100% woman. And I hear that was a fail because her shoulders are broad, legs are masculine and feet are big. o_O (BooP! Bye, girl.)

Annnnnd you know what... in addition to a lil Chrissy, Stevie J's girl is also giving us a lil Emily B., loving a cheating man that don't give a flying fuck.

Overall, I hate the show off the 1st episode. I may give it a try next week. It's good for blogging.

Bank of America Glitch Allows Man To Withdraw 1.5 Million From ATMs!

Thanks to a glitch in the Bank of America system, 55 year old, Ronald Page of Detroit, MI, became an overnight millionaire. And that's temporary great and all, but this guy... He gambled all $1.5 million away! << An idiot move, if you ask me.

I cannot say with absolute certainty what I'd do if I went the ATM and was able to draw down more than my balance. I truly don't know. But giving the money to casinos ain't topping my list.


Ronald Page seemingly had it made when Bank of America unintentionally changed his account status, allowing the 55-year-old man to make unlimited ATM cash overdraft withdrawals.

But ABC News reports that Page, who in reality had only $300 in his checking account, used the accidental loophole to withdraw more than $1.5 million—losing it all on gambling.

And even worse for Page, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Detroit says he is now facing 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to charges of theft of bank funds, $1,543,104 in total between December 1, 2008 and May 31, 2009.

The day the Bank of America glitch went into effect, Page reportedly withdrew $312,000 from ATMs at the Greektown Casino in Detroit and an additional $51,727 from the MGM Grand Casino. Bank of America placed a hold on his account 17 days later, but he had already withdrawn $1.5 million by that point.

The glitch reportedly occurred because Page originally had a banking account with LaSalle Bank. When Bank of America acquired LaSalle, the glitch somehow occurred while the two banking institutions were transferring account information.

Page, who does not have a prior record, could have faced a steeper sentence but prosecutors said his crime was a "lapse of judgment" and placed blame with Bank of America for allowing the withdrawals to take place.

In addition to the recommended 15-month sentence and order to repay the funds, the U.S. Attorney's Office has suggested that Page be prohibited from gambling in any capacity.

Peek At Apple's iPhone 5?.. [Video]

I'm new to the iPhone ownership arena (still prefer droids..) and can't say that I'm all that excited about the phone, as a whole.  However, I know A LOT of iPhoneheads (seem to) live for this piece of technology and have been not-so-patiently awaiting the release of the iPhone 5.

The below vid shows what is speculated to be the back to the next iPhone to hit the streets. The 5, perhaps?.. Anything would be better than that madness Apple pulled by adding Siri to the iPhone 4 and dubbing it the "4S", instead of releasing a brand new set with various different features and/or layout, (such as appears to be the case with this piece in the vid).

I'm really interested in the charging dock. If this is truly a piece for the new iPhone, it looks like it's the end to using (old) iPod chargers as a back up or replacements.

And as much as I try to stay close to my true, frugal self, I gotta say, I just might be going wild for the update. (Keepin' up with the Jones-es). smh

iPhone 4s on the right. iPhone 5 piece on the left??

Will Bottle Service Become A Thing Of The Past In NYC Nightclubs??

That bar brawl between Chris Brown and Drake had quite a few folks seeking immediate medical attention. This far I have heard of, Brown, who had a gash to the chin, a model who was said to be with his crew that night, NBA player Tony Parker that says glass flew in his eye(s), Brown's bodyguard, whose bloody hospital pic was all over every blog imaginable, as well as a few club goers not associated with any sort of fame.

I hear NYPD is investigating. Club W.i.P has been shut down and it's manager arrested. (I'm not sure if those actions are a direct result of the fight or not) And I've seen reports of Drake instigating the entire fight and has been asked to turn himself in for arrest.

Regardless of all the fingerpointing of who started what, unsuspecting people have been injured and someone has to be held accountable. The lawsuits are pouring in and I can only say that had I been there... I would have been on the other side of that lawyer's desk faster than a speeding Ace of Spades bottle!! "Gimme my mon-nee!" (okay!) no matter the extent of my injury. I could have simply fell trying to get away from it all. No matter. "Pay up!!" A gash and 6 stitches is about to put a bitch in a whole 'notha tax bracket! (Hear me?!)

All jokes aside, this is all pitiful and if NYC Council Speaker, Christine Quinn, has her way, bottle service will be stripped from NYC clubs. Reportedly, she was involved in an "emergency" meeting regarding this issue and believes this will prevent violence in the club such as the infamous Brown/Drake battle. (This is for sure a direct result.)

Quinn's stance is, of course, ridiculous and probably won't see the light of day in the city. Violence actually thrives in most nightclubs and in the streets all over. Maybe she should fight to get and keep your everyday weapons, such as guns, off NYC streets. I mean... If she really cares about the well-being of the city's visitors and residents. O_o

Unfortunately, this shit simply served as another opportunity for folks of all races to say, "Niggas don't know how to act fo' shit!!" and shake their heads in disappointment.

"Power Circle" MMG ft. Kendrick Lamar [Audio]

Waka Flocka Visits The Breakfast Club [Interview]

Whether you're a Waka fan or not, there is no denying that he comes with catchy bangers. He's not the "rapper" with a nice flow or great lyrical content, but he is good for entertainment.

From what I caught of this interview, (which was largely overshadowed by the whole Chris Brown vs. Drake brawl from the night prior), this lil guy is funny. One point during his visit he participated in a spelling bee. As Angela Yee pointed out, he totally turned it into word association. He called Wiz Khalifa's blunts "mosquito legs" and some mo'! I'm sure the entire interview is comical.

Chris Brown Injured By A Bottle Thrown In The Club!!...

... By Drizzy Drake?? (I'm confused.)

So, the story goes... Drake, from behind his security, approached Chris in a NYC nightclub called WIP last night, asking "What's up now?!"

Security from both sides got into a physical altercation and Drake threw a bottle, which got Chris in the chin (as you can see from the picture Brown posted on Instagram following the incident). Chris tweeted that Drake hid in the bathroom following his lil bottle-throwing actions. (shame)

Is this really all over Rihanna?? Drake called her a roll'ah on Twitter and that shoulda been that. But as we all know: DRAKE IS AS IN LOVE WITH RI AS CHRIS IS!! And still a lil salty that she ain't love him as much as he loved her, 'parently.

Fuck dat!! #TeamBreezy!! (cuz that shit appropriate!)

"2 Reasons" (aka "Bitches & Tha Drinks") Trey Songz ft. T.I. [Video]

This is my first time hearing this one. I see where they were tryin' to go with the "catchiness" on this track, but it ain't quite catchy enough. Despite the vid's club scene, I doubt if it's the club banger they were probably hoping it would be.

Honestly, I think what Trey needs is for Chris to find himself in some major trouble once more. 'Cause shit like this just ain't cuttin' it. I mean... What in da hell happened?? How'd we get from "Say Ahh" to this? o_O

Basketball Wives Season 4 Reunion, Part 2!!

Last night officially, (officially), wrapped up Season 4 for Basketball Wives on Vh1. And I, personally, think it was so bland. However, a few moments stuck out:

1. The host, John Salley, asking Royce if she considers herself a serial dater.
--Royce says that she is not a serial dater (which I believe she likens to the word "hoe", I suppose). She says that she has never date multiple men at a time. So... "No." She's not a serial dater. I say the fact that every season she has a new "Love of my Life!"..."The One!" makes her something. I don't know if it's serial dater or what... One word definitely comes to mind: PRESSED.

2. The continuation of Tami and Kesha getting into it over the whole bullying in Tahiti situation. Tami refuses to title herself as a bully. (It's hard to see yourself. This is true. But we are all looking at you, Tam and you's a bully.) And Kesha gets a little feisty up there on that stage, complete with head boppin' and eye rollin'. These ladies are a TRIP! But what takes the cake is when Kesha confronted Suzie, telling her that the whole thing began with her taking what Kesha said about Tami back to Tami. Suzie denies that she took anything back to Tami. And Tami even speaks up for her, saying that she didn't. THIS IS A LIE befo' GAWD! I could have swore that on the ride back to their lil huts in Tahiti, Suzie was looking all sad (because she ran her mouth) and Tami said (what??)... "Suzie you did the right thing." By telling her what Kesha said, right?! (Or am I confusing two different episodes? 'Cause y'all know Suzie is forever carrying a damn bone!) And even at the table when it was all going down, I though Tami said Suzie told her, when Kesha asked where she was getting her info. But now, all the sudden it's "Suzie ain't say shit!" Riiiiiggggghhht!!

3. Shaunie faked like she ever even contemplated the idea of there not being a Basketball Wives Season 5. When John Salley asked that question all of America could have answered! No next season and let all that good ole money pass you by Ms. Shaunie??! Please!! I don't think so! Of course there will be a Season 5 (and 6 and 7 and so on till the public completely tires of y'all).


4. Jennifer and Evelyn's polygraph results came back and it's conclusive: They miss being a part of each other's lives. And they hugged and cried and (seemingly) made up!! Right there on stage! And I have to tell ya... I fought back tears. I could feel the emotion. Right through the screen. Two friends for over 13 years, I believe. Torn apart by life and a little stubborness on both sides, all fueled by Twitter and reality television. That sucks!! And Evelyn was truly hurt by it all. That showed during this season by her bringing it up like every damn episode! And come to find out, Jennifer was just as hurt, but a little better at masking it. And now, they are back together. Maybe... Was that just a reunion show "reunion" or a real-life reunion? (We'll see as time goes on)

I'm ready for a Season 5. I can't even lie. As much as I hate all the bickering and backstabbing, it gives me something to blog about. So, uhhh.. BRING IT ON!

Justin has a Chris Brown sound going on this track. I like it.

A Texas Father Kills A Man That Attempts To Molest His 4 Year Old!

...And let the church shout "AMEN!"

From CNN:

Sheriff's deputies in Texas won't file charges against a father who they say beat an acquaintance to death after allegedly catching him sexually abusing the man's 4-year-old daughter.
During a social gathering on Saturday, the girl went inside the family's home in Shiner while other members of the family were tending to horses outside, CNN reported.
The father caught a 47-year-old man -- with whom he was casually acquainted --attempting to molest his daughter, Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon told theVictoria Advocate. The father then allegedly punched the man in the head until he died, Harmon reported.
The father and daughter weren't named to protect the identity of the 4-year-old girl. She was described as "ok, besides the obvious mental trauma" of the incident, Harmon said.
The alleged abuser was found dead at the scene. His name wasn't released pending the announcement of his death to his family.
The sheriff's office will defer to a grand jury to decide whether charges will be brought against the father.
"You have a right to defend your daughter," he told CNN. "[The girl's father] acted in defense of his third person. Once the investigation is completed we will submit it to the district attorney who then submits it to the grand jury, who will decide if they will indict him."
The father was reportedly "very remorseful" about the death and did not know the alleged abuser would die of his injuries.

I hope this little girl's father does not do any time behind his actions. He witnessed his child being harmed and instinctively came to her defense. The molester placed himself in that predicament. I wish that all the children of the world were lucky enough to have such protection.

New Map App For Apple Products With iOS 6!

One of the many feature(-less) things I hated about my transition to the iPhone from Android was the Map! iPhone has a Google map that is HORRIBLE! With the Android phones you can search a business name in the map app and it brings back store hours, reviews, a link for the website, etc. With the iPhone's Google map, you get the telephone number and the website. Sure... Eventually you'd find out the hours on their site and maybe even some reviews on yet another site... But I want info and I be wanting it like NOW!!! (Okay!) And to top it all off, the iPhone's Google Map has no turn-by-turn voice navigation!!! (I can just imagine the number of accidents looking at this damn map while driving has caused!)

Luckily for me, my complaints may all be a thing of the past with the upcoming release of iOS 6, because Apple announced at WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) this morning (Pacific Time) that they have created their own Maps app that come complete with all I've missed and more!


Apple is bringing both 3D and a huge dose of GPS to its new Maps app for iOS.
The iPhone maker revealed today at WWDCa new in-house 3D Maps app built entirely from the ground floor up. The 3D option isn't turned on by default but can easily be switched on by the user via a large button logically dubbed 3D.
The Flyover feature displays 3D, photographic maps that you can rotate with your fingers to get a true view of any location. Why Flyover? Search for a location or landmark, and the app flies you over there to bring you the bird's eye view. But 3D is also available in satellite view, slightly higher than your average bird can fly.
And 3D isn't the only cool feature. The app is tapping into the GPS arena by helping drivers trying to navigate their way through traffic.
Besides offering turn-by-turn directions, the app includes a new traffic service that shows you the location of accidents, courtesy of crowd-sourcing, so you can try to avoid them.
The app also displays the ETA for your destination and will try to uncover a better route when you're stuck in traffic. It even works when your iPhone or iPad is at the lock screen.
And you don't have to take your eyes off the road since the app works with Siri. So you can tell your device where you want to go, and Siri will speak the directions to you and alert you to where you have to go next.

I cannot wait!! I avoid this damn Maps app like a plague right now! (Uggh!)

Bye-Bye, BITCHES!!

Yep. I finally did what I should have done sooooo long ago: Quit that damn part-time job!! 

Now, I'm all 'bout getting my hands on some ends. (Please don't get me wrong.) But, that damn department store has threatened to drive me crazy so many times over the course of the year that I had been employed with them! It ain't even funny!

The straw that broke the camel's back waaaz when them fools gonna try to tell ME that it is mandatory for me to work on both the 15th and the 16th of June from 10 AM to 7 PM. (Wait... Come again..) The 15th is a Friday.  I have a full-time, day job. Monday through Friday. I have NEVER worked during the day on a weekday. Never. Ever. That's first thing. Second thing: I am ON-CALL! 'Kay. "On-Call". And the way this position has been working for an entire year is that I pick up hours on my own. No scheduling of my hours by the employer. That is just the way it goes.

So, yeah. I got their lil letter to my home talkin' 'bout "If business needs warrant, all on-call associates are expected to work on the 16th". And I can dig it. But let me tell you.. I guarantee that this location's business needs WILL NOT warrant every last person on their payroll to be in attendance on that day or any other day that any of us will live to see. This department store is one of many in the chain in the DC area. And it is also one of the worst in the area. It's a local/hood joint. It services a very tiny population. The mall it is located in is ran down and damn near SHUT DOWN! No one travels from out of their neighborhood/town/city to visit this location, like many in the area do a few of the other area locations for this chain. So I can bet my last damn dollar that I was not needed on either of those dates that "They" scheduled me for.

So, the new lil chick that is in charge of the hours (I guess) called me up Wednesday of last week saying that I had to choose a schedule for those two days. I told her that I would be out of town on that weekend and could not make it in. She asks me, "Weren't you just out of town Memorial weekend?.." BITCH ANNNND?!! As, I told her, "Yes, I waassss." Got damn! Who the fuck is she?..Clockin' my ass and shit!

So, we get off the phone and I check my schedule. This heifer done scheduled me any damn way! I allowed a few hours to pass, thinking she'd correct her mistake. And ran into NO SUCH LUCK. So I calls her back. She rushes me off the phone with this mocking voice saying, "Oh, yeah!! You said you got it going on! We spoke... I'll take care of it." So, I take that to mean exactly wtf she said! "She'll take care of it." By the time I got to work Thursday afternoon, it still was not taken care of. I personally go to her lil office and point out that I am still on the schedule. She says, "Yeah. You're going to be, because those days are mandatory." I point out to her that the letter sent from corporate to my home stated that the 16th is mandatory "If business needs warrant". It mentions nothing about the 15th. And then she says, "Well, you have to take that up with Susan."

Susan is the new store manager, whom I never met and just found out about, a week ago. Before my extensive leave from their payroll due to there being no hours available for on-call associates (supposedly) there was another person seated in that position. And they used his name just as this chick sat to my face and used "Susan"s name... Scare tactic.

Unfortunately, a lot of folks that work at that store scare easily and fear the loss of their livelihood (working there) to the craziest degree I have ever witnessed. When the store manager's name is spoken, these folks are like kids in obedience school or something. Posture gets proper (as they can get it), hands get busy, eyes are cast downward... It's a very "'Mastah comin'" feel. And to me, that shit is beyond CRAZY! They really take the "ranks" around there too serious.

So, anywayz, this bitch spits the name "Susan" at me with a "Got'cha bitch!" grin like I'ma start shaking in my boots. They know good and well I ain't scared because I have nothing to lose. I've had words with a handful of department managers there. I've sent a rather long email to the ex-store manager back in Fall 2011 telling him to check his department managers. Not just for my sake, but for everyone's because they tend to get disrespectful. They seem to think they can order folks around and that mutual respect isn't warranted. As I've told  quite a number of them over there, "I don't know what the rest of these people let you do, but you not talkin' to me any kind of way." That's only had to be said once and the issue is solved. (Now, there was a particularly catty man that headed a department over there that I had words with more than once. I have no idea what that was all about, but usually the managers and I saw eye to eye after I let them know exactly what it is and what it ain't.)

So, anyways,  I decided that I'd play their game and just let them fire me for "attendance". Because that seemed to be their goal. In actuality (I believe) I kick up too much dust and I have long suspected this to be the reason I hadn't really been given any hours since like late December/ early January. But of course they cannot get rid of me over voicing my concerns within the workplace. What better way to get me out if I won't quit on my own?... Tell me it is mandatory for me to report to work >>> I say I cannot report >>> Keep me on the schedule >>> I do not show >>> Fire me.


Not gonna happen. I've never been fired from a thing in my life and I ain't gonna start now! (Even if it is a position that held no value for me. It comes down to principal.) So, I quit. And I will be penning a letter to corporate once I get the time. Probably on a lazy Sunday sometime in the future. Or maybe during a slow day at work. Because what I have learned in life is "The squeaky wheel gets the grease". And don't y'all forget it!

The one thing I do regret is when I went to hand in my handwritten letter of resignation, there was not a single soul in that damn HR office! I wanted to express to just one soul in there how much I believe they are full of shit and ain't shit and can kiss my black ass! But not one single body was in that damn office! *I feel robbed :'| **

Erroneous Cancer Diagnosis Leaves Woman With Half A Jaw!!

In New Zealand, a 63 year old woman visited the dentist for swelling caused by a tooth implant. Tests were ran and a diagnosis of cancer came back. The cure: To have the right side of her upper jaw removed, followed up with a bit of reconstructive surgery.

HOWEVER!!.. That cancer diagnosis??.. It did NOT belong to her! o_O

From Huffington Post:

A New Zealand dental hospital is under fire for a lab mix-up that led surgeons to remove part of a jaw from a woman who'd been misdiagnosed with mouth cancer.
A pathologist at Medlab Dental, part of the University of Otago Dental Hospital, dropped two tissue samples on the floor and then mixed them up, according to theOtago Daily Times, which published an investigation on medical labs last week.
The 63-year-old patient -- who was suffering mere swelling from a tooth implant -- was mistakenly told she had mouth cancer. The right side of her upper jaw was removed. Bone and blood vessels were taken from her leg to help reconstruct her jaw.
Now the woman has trouble walking.
"I can't for the life of me understand how you can get tissue samples mixed up," said Dr. Iain Wilson, the oral surgeon who sent her biopsy to the lab, to the Herald on Sunday. "I am astonished and horrified by these lab mix-ups."
The hospital has apologized to the patient, who has contacted a lawyer. Meanwhile, New Zealand's Health and Disability Commissioner is investigating, 3 News reported.

Goodness!! I could not imagine! (Bless her heart!!!)

And this is why 2nd and 3rd and 4th opinions should be considered. I'm not talking about if the doc says you have a cold, you should then follow up with another doctor, but if it is something major, definitely go that extra mile before taking drastic measures. And weigh your treatment options.

I'm not faulting this lady at all for trusting the "professionals". (I'm jus' sayin'.)
