A Fly Chick and a Diva!





I love it when people’s passions translates into something tangible…something that stands as a manifestation of their taste, talent and determination. Whether it’s a man or woman…I want to stand by the creator of something beautiful with all that I can do. So many of us have talents and abilities that we say we want to grow and be recognized but what we do is coddle it in familiar territory for fear of expansion. We all know that once it expands by demand, it becomes a heavy responsibility to maintain that craft. Yet…if you think big…you never know who you can touch with the passion to begin their own passionate plunge into self-made business. Not QUITE the lemonade stand…but a bigger version of that. lol


I have two talented ladies to laud today. One is my girl Yesha. She’s known to the cybersphere as the FlyBlackChick. She’s UBER savvy with the ways of the net and how to capitalize off of it’s popularity. She was the one who inspired me to create this blog, because the now defunct social network we were on several years ago seemed far too small to share my ideas with. She also helped a friend of ours find ways to make money with his very popular blog with everything from political satire to a weekly sex blog for the grown, sexy and witty. She’s definitely good at helping the newbies of the net make their mark online. She’s been designing her own blog’s site for the longest…so of course…she designs others’. She also helps with social media and site development. GO…visit her site if you need ideas to give your site a professional face or need help in building up your business’s reach.


…well….GO!





My next friend has been designing jewelry for the better part of a decade…going on 6 or more years of wowing us with her unique and beautiful jewelry pieces. She has the funkiest names for her lines and loves using colors…to express her very airy Aquarian art. I’ve actually had the link to her site on the side of my blog for over a year now…almost two. I pray you ladies (and gentlemen with ladies) are utilizing that link! *eying you* O_O lol





I received a pair of her hammered earrings from her “Bangin’ Beauties” line, yesterday and I was way too excited. I KNOW there will be more GGX in my future. I’ve got a couple of customized ideas for her, too. She’s flexible that way. For instance, my friend at work loves the earrings and though they come in silver, copper and gold…she wants to see if she can get it in a colored metal…like blue. I wouldn’t be surprised if Gina (Ms. GGX herself) found the metal to do it AND started a new line of colored hammered earrings! That’s how she does…she takes off with a base idea and cultivates it with a vast vision.

EVERYONE who saw my earrings, loved…Loved…LOVED them. What all the ladies at the job were most impressed with (besides the fact that the earrings when visually connected formed a  butterfly) …was that they were lightweight. They don’t weigh the ear down. You get that elongated or large hooped look without the damage to your lobes. That’s important for me since my lobes are sensitive and have a tendency to hurt from heavy earrings…even studs!


She has an Etsy site in addition to her own GGX Jewels site…and has a Facebook like page for her fans to photographically journal their journey in to the GGX experience…Glamour Girl Xpressions is JUST THAT…it’s glamourous and expresses the inner diva of each and every customer. GETCHUSUM!!!

THANK YOU, GINA!!!

"O" Really?





Damn, this comes right after a blog saying I hate “political” debates.


Oh well…lol


Oprah came on today and she had ex-detective, Mark Fuhrman on. If you’re too young, or you were smoking that shit at the time…Mark Fuhrman was one of the detectives who reported on the Simpson case in ’95 when Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman were murdered outside the former Mrs. Simpson’s condo. Mark was the one accused of withholding and tainting evidence…namely the infamous glove that “didn’t fit”.


Anyway, during the trial of the century…Ms. Oprah Winfrey declared that she would not be interviewing nor discussing the trial. She made it clear (not sure if she SAID what she believed happen or just inferred) that she believed in OJ’s guilt. She said she would NOT have anyone on the show, ESPECIALLY OJ, himself when she had very definite ideas as to what happened.


::pause::


I’m all for people taking sides. Do you. Be on the side of right (or what side you FEEL) is right. I am NOT here to argue whether he did it or not. Twelve people said he didn’t…another 12 said he was “indirectly responsible” in a “wrongful death” suit against him in civil court. Either way you flip that meat…the man was acquitted criminally and crucified publicly. If you believe he did it…so be it. If not…so be it. What I always think is fascinating, is when people form such an opinion on an event they weren’t present for. THINKING he did it…FEELING he may have done it…and having a psychic premonition that he did or didn’t…still isn’t being there when Nicole and Ron took their last breaths. We’re all STILL assuming and that is the truth. Unless you had a bird’s eye view to it or wielded the weapon…you don’t know JACK…Jack!

For Ms. Winfrey to hypocritically turn around after the trial and interview the prosecuting lawyers Marcia Clark and Chris Darden…was a “wow” moment for me. I felt like she’d somehow compromised her credibility and word by doing so. This is a woman who has had KNOWN, CONFESSED murderers of women and/or children or molesters on her show. Whether by satellite or in person…she’s given plenty of non-Black offenders the chance to speak their piece. Why not OJ? I feel that there is a breech in her journalistic integrity. You as a media mogul…a BLACK woman who is a media mogul…where is your impartiality for a BROTHA? Yea…I just pulled out my Kween X on you. What’s up with that, O?


I’m not concerned for what side you’re on. It’s over. It happened. Those two people cannot be reanimated and placed back into the lives of their family. No amount of debate can do that. What I am speaking on is an ongoing thing that plagues our culture…celebrity and NON-celebrity. We are harshest on each other…in the name of fairness, which sucks elephantine alien balls.

I wonder if the Illuminati got to her. I wonder if they promised to multiply Amarillo’s Beef vs. Oprah debacle by 100 on her ass if she dare say a word. You don’t think they know her pull? How she can say, iPod nano and sell millions in a week? You don’t think they’d silence someone who has the pull to make millions of folks put down beef and cripple the bovine business? All I’m saying is…either O is one hell of a hypocrite…or the “enlightened ones” pulled her coat and promised to make Chinese food of her pups. #IJS


{{If you don’t see my blog tomorrow…it was nice knowing you all and I love you for following and reading, lol}}

Paparazzi (pop-em-in-the-eye-so-they-cant-see)

WHY every time I go to the store and stand in line…there’s a National Inquirer or a Sun with pictures of celebrities in bathing suits exposing their not-so-fab bodies? Why is America so beauty obsessed? Do I really care if Jerry Hall has 4 rolls? Or that Anjelica Houston, who is in her 60’s looks old? I mean, shit…she almost damn 70. What kind of “body” do you expect her to have? I was talking to my sista on the phone and she was saying that Star Jones was very hurt about the whispers and gasps concerning her post-gastric bypass body. If someone caught me…da Kween…on the way out to the curb to dump the recyclables, with my hair not done, early in the morning, wearing what I threw on, from the worst angle possible…I’D BE PISSED, TOO! I just hate that this country has made it almost impossible for a celebrity to do anything privately as well as made the people in this WORLD do unnatural things to maintain an idea of beauty.

It’s so bad, that you have teen girls who haven’t even shed their baby fat…haggling with their parents around graduation time. “Mom…DAD…I’ve figured it out. How about…instead of the new car (which would help me get back and forth to college and/or a job for the next several years until I can afford to upgrade)…I’ll take a boob job! It’ll last WAY longer and it will help me GET a man who will drive FOR me! Whatta ya think?” Yea, stupid right? Yet girls are getting ass, tit and facial implants…lip injections…rhinoplasty [sp.], etc. Guys are getting CALF, facial, and only Lord knows what else…and of course people are getting stuff sucked out! Before their adult bodies even get a chance to mature…they’re already hating it and doing things to it all because mom and dad probably think THEY’RE ugly. Or perhaps look like Thing 1 and Thing 2…so the kids need to fall in and look like things, too. I mean damn…that is just the UPPER middle class. Even poor folks do it. It’s ridiculous that people are saving thousands of dollars in a weak economy all to look better, which is SUPPOSED to make them FEEL better. Does it? Because we’ve got some repeat offenders in the limelight…who are NOT satisfied with the first nip/tuck. They go back for more and more…and what does the doctor whose Hippocratic oath fell off the wall with the money being tossed at him/her in slo mo, do? They continue to cut into these people, who CLEARLY have self esteem issues. God rest his soul, Michael mutilated himself. I had a CRUSH on Off the Wall Mike. I had a lukewarm crush on Thriller Mike. After that…There was nothing to familiarize him to me except his signature dancing and voice. Lil Kim…on her quest to resemble Faith Evans…or someone light-skinned…has totally FLUCKED her face up. She was a pretty girl before it all. I thought Kim was too cute, with her petite self. Everything fitting HER frame. Then it happened…first came the eye contacts. Then the skin began to gradually lighten. The boobs enlarged, so much so…Diana had to play with one. Then she bought a booty. Lightening even more…then the facial implants. Was her chin always that pointy? ANYWAY…that child messed herself up. That video of her being assembled as a plastic doll was on point. At least she knows…and so does the pop-em-in-the-eye-so-they-cant-see. They’ve chronicled it for our viewing (and horrified) pleasure.

It’s not just about the idea of beauty either. These folks are making their living dipping in people’s garbage and whatnot. Some rich person is in their own backyard with their fat let out, because they are HOME and don’t have to suck it in…but Mr. Flash Pause is in the bushes with his Canon, snapping them bending over and their stomach hanging. Or you’re seeing the “first time” pics of the baby they hide under blankets in public…because they don’t want AMERICA to have the first set of baby pics before Grandma and Grandpa can get them. I wish I would see some fool in the bushes with a mechanical eye…taking pics of me scratching my ass or adjusting the girls. You remember how on the cartoons you’d see the bushes shaking and all you could hear are punches and kicks? Yea…breaking my hoof off in they goose ass. No wonder they get beat up all the time. MIND YO BIZNESS! Couples can’t even go anywhere without being snapped. First vacation since those movies came out and the kids were born and the pop-em-in-the-eye-so-they-cant-see is riding shotgun through it all. (Even though I’m convinced SOME celebrities bargain their private life for money and more fame) That being said, they’re making it bad for the ones who DON’T want to sell their lives. Those sharks get a taste of blood and they circle forever. Remember Princess Diana…and remember how bad it can get.

MAYBE folks are changing their faces so no one will recognize them in the media…

Remember that lady who looks like a cat? Or Joan Rivers who can no longer naturally smile? Cher and the alleged rib removal? Mickey Rourke’s overhaul? Just horrible. All these face lifts, boob jobs, lip implants, etc. prove…is that we’re warped. It’s one of the many reasons why men are obsessed with a perfect body…instead of a beautiful mind and spirit. It’s why women will dump a good man, for a FINE one who’ll do them dirty. It’s why, there are hundreds of weight loss and gym advertisements daily. It’s why…even though the country is beauty obsessed…we’re still the fattest in the world. It’s because…no matter how much you WANT to look like the Halle Berry’s and LL Cool J’s…we’re all built differently. Weight, heights, hereditary predispositions…are all factors in why even if you had a personal trainer to work you over every day and a dietitian planning and cooking all your meals…you STILL might get on the air and complain that you’re fat. It’s because the problem isn’t whether you eat right, or work out. It’s whether you love yourself AS IS and relish in your individuality. Giving yourself the permission to love them rolls. The flat chests and asses. The thin lips. The inherited gut, the crooked nose and those bowed legs…all of which you got from grandma or grandpa or auntie or cousin…and LOVE it. Love YOU.

…AND PUT THAT DAMN NATIONAL INQUIRER BACK!! Wasting good money…buy a Soyjoy. LOL
