Rockstar In Training: Punk Writing Radio

I was recently asked to participate in a cool radio show discussion about punk rock music, lyrics and songwriting. Crescent Hill Radio has a weekly show called From The Inkwell which is about all things related to writing. The host wanted to talk about how punk gets a bad rap as far as an art form, and is ignored as a legitimate form of writing. When I heard this I thought, “Hey, good idea!” I was honored that the folks at Crescent Hill Radio wanted to get me involved and have me… Continue

Black Witch: "Get Off the Bus"

Bus preachers. I don’t know if they exist anywhere else but they’re a staple in the Black community. They’re Christians who either are pastors doing unnecessary overtime, or wannabe pastors preaching to what is not entirely their flock. They believe everyone should hear the word of God – regardless of whether everyone wants or needs to or not.

Lady Bo, The Queen Mother of Guitar

Bo Diddley is rightfully credited as a true luminary in the history of rock. An innovative guitarist, clever lyricist, and energetic live performer, the legend of Bo Diddley is well deserved. Often overlooked, however are the contributions to his band by one of the most talented women to ever pick up a guitar; Lady Bo.

Does Weight REALLY Matter??

Would you ever date someone heavier than you (guy or girl)? The other night I was just searching around the web like I usually do when I can't sleep, and stumbled upon some message boards where females asked men "Is 5'5 180lbs too big?" "Do men consider 5'7 190lbs too fat?" "I'm 160lbs, am I thick... do guys like thick girls?". I'm not going to lie, I'm not skinny by ANY means. I'm thick, but I don't consider myself fat. A lot of guys on these boards were so... so... shallow! I was… Continue

Black Witch: "Faker Faker - How to Spot a Con"

This mini guide is basically for those who want to seek out a psychic parlor to get a reading and not want to be jipped. I made these tips when I was the president of my university’s Pagan Student Union. Now while I do personally suggest people simply learning divination on their own since it’s a lot cheaper and not that difficult, some folks would like to still go to a diviner for guidance. Here are the tips.
