This N That

Hello all. I really missed you guys. I'm sorry I haven't been posting, but yours truly has been really busy. Unfortunately, it isn't spending lottery winnings. *sigh*. But I will tell you I am glad to be home, and have never been so happy to see palm trees in my whole life...

I'll put up a post tonight, but probably won't be able to answer your comments till tomorrow. And to my Old School Friday fam, I'm back in action this week.


I haven't been on the blogs, but how can you not hear about that Mimi/Nick Cannon debacle? And I thought he was lucky playing Arthur Ashe. That mofo has hit the lotto! All I can say is good luck to both of them. And oh, Nick's ding ding must be made of gold and diamonds.


While traveling I was watching CNN in an airport, and lo and behold there was an interview with Sidney Poitier by Larry King. Only Larry King can make a conversation with one of the most historic black actors ever seem like a calculus class. So freakin' boring!

There was one interesting tidbit, tho. Sidney told a story about how he came upon his first audition cause he saw an ad in a newspaper. He thought it was just a regular job, cause it was posted next to the dishwasher jobs he was looking at. Anyhoo, he goes to the audition, and he doesn't even know how to read! It is hard to believe, as one would think Sidney came out of the womb reading a book. The audition guy basically kicked him out and told him he was an idiot.

Sidney left, but the more he thought about it, the more pissed he became until he was enraged. He was angry that this man would treat him that way, and vowed that he wouldn't let the experience define who he was. He was not going to let this man think he was justified in saying he was a horrible actor, and a horrible person, and set out to prove him wrong. I think that mission was definitely accomplished.


For my Philly folkses:

And finally, can someone please, please, please tell Hillary to go the f**k away? You know your campaign is in trouble if there are Barak Obama signs posted all over Texas (like I saw earlier this week). Texas for chrissakes!

Her arrogance is maddening...basically in my eyes it boils down to her thinking "I know they are never gonna make this ni**er president, not in this lifetime. So I'm gonna keep going until everyone else sees it too! I could give a sh*t if it completely implodes the Democratic party."

The problem is, some very important people are starting to make rumbles that it is time for her to kick rocks. Even ol' Bill looked like he was chewing on crushed glass during her Indiana victory speech. And if they keep allowing her to hang around, and if she or that mummy that is McCain wins the presidency, then this country deserves everything it gets, straight up.

IW! I am so glad that you are back...I was starting to scratch at my arm, fiend style...

um, gold and diamonds for real...geesh...

i absolutely love Sidney...I think he was a god in a former life, because he is truly a prince in this one...

DB said...

at this point, I believe she feels that if she can't be the nominee, then she's going to make things harder for Barack to win to show everyone...see if it was me then....

she a loser...literally.

unless the USA pulls some BS which is quite possible.

Nic said...

Glad you're back IW!!!

I really enjoy this site.

Tell Sergio, I thought his interview with Chiwetel was one of the best I've EVER read. It's so refreshing to read an interview with a celebrity that is actually coherent and insightful and doesn't leave you with a headache afterwards!!! LOLOL!!!

I have absolutely NO comment about Mrs. Clinton.

Danielle said...

Glad you are back. Missed ya! I saw a photo of Nick and Mariah on People Mag. Jesus take the wheel. I hope this works out for MiMi.

Vivrant Thang said...

You are a woman after my own heart. LOL!

As Marick...Niriah...hell who cares...this is some foolishness. I am not buying for a second that they are madly in love. To make a joke out of marriage for publicity...well, I already was done with her lip-synching ass. This just cements it.

Ok, you've made me fall back in love with Philly again...for now. They are on my list.

*applause* for your Hilary comments. I just wrote a long diatribe over at Bella's about it so I'm too exhausted to say more. It boils down to: DO.NOT.WANT. Get gone!

I know you always have my back Ms. M :-) Nick Cannnon almost (key word almost) makes me want to know what all the fuss is all about...

@db: you said a mouthful. The US is already pulling a bunch of unbelievable shit and no one is saying boo. I think they would make us slaves again if they thought they could get away with it!

@nic: Sergio is always up in this piece so I'm sure he's read your comment by now, lol! btw, I'm glad you're here too :-)

Hi there danielle :-) hope all is well....as for nick and mimi--al I can say is vitamin D is a powerful drug, and I'm sure he's packin'/rockin better than Tommy Matolla.

@vivrant: you are very cool yourself, my dear :-) You had me rollin' on your comment about Hillary--agreed 100%. Must trot over to Bella's to find out what else you have to say...

@jj: I pray you are right!

I have no words about that picture.

I almost posted it and decided against it at the last possible sec. Instead I've found other videos that spoke volumes.

Peace!

Invisible Woman said...

Hillary is a mess no matter what medium you show her in...

Ms.Divine said...

I'm glad somebody well(everyone) here feels the same. Truth be told the south still has faith in the republican party...sad. (At least the people I've met 40+ years old for those wondering) Honestly, I feel she is a wolf in sheeps clothing. That is the perfect collage of her facial expression's because all I see is a devil. Str8 up.
Love your site,
Thanks Ms.Divine
