A High Thought: Obama's DNC Speech

As a Black man, the toughest thing about supporting Barack Obama is the sickening feeling that he might actually be making you proud of your country(gasp!). Where any other politicians speech would be drowned out by the chorus of reminders in my brain of everything that is and has been wrong about America, I listen. With conventions of years past, i'd catch the highlights on CNN. But with this one i sparked a bowl and wrote a blog.



I've never completely been able to be proud of being… Continue

Where to find Black rock

Question_markjpg



Last week, a woman named Akua found boldaslove.us. Her question was simple:

A question for you: do you have any suggestions for finding people who are into black rock to talk to and hang out with or bands to go see? I'm in the Boston area.

So what follows is an expansion…

College

I have started my year in college and I feel like I am adapting well. I get along with my roommate blah,blah,blah,blah. My classes started today. Nothing really major just some art courses, history, english and french. I must say though It must be true that the grass is greener on the other side...because they surely keep this damn grass green and pretty over here ^_^

V.V.Brown! is Crying Blood! Amy is crying for booze.



You know who I'm talking about in the headline, "dat ol' hat" Amy "Any Booze in the house?" Winehouse. What she did at Glastonbury's music festival was nuts. No notes no sense. No idea where she is. Ok enough with the laughs but with such great talent what went wrong. Unlike Amy however V.V.Brown is'nt the pun to her own joke. Also from the LDN, london for you not in the know, V.V. has steadly been making moves all over her home town to the… Continue

Swivel Go Ga-Ga at the Go-Go

Tai called it the Whisky a Ga-Ga, but it's actually called the Whisky a Go-Go. I love Go-Go music. I even like the Go-Gos. But if you like rock as much as I do, you'll want to come see us this Thursday night at the Whisky. I know we need to put some pictures and video up of our gigs in Iceland, but until then, come check us out and we can tell you live and in person. 9pm. 8901 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA.… Continue

I hate Pennsyltucky

I don't know what it is about a lot of white, blue-collar folks. Is it the possible election of a black president? Is it the scapegoating of minorities of all their problems? Whatever it is, many of white, blue-collar people, at least around here in York County, are releasing their intolerance of non-white people overtly lately. There have been a rise in hate crimes recently, including an ethnic intimidation-based defacing of a local, affluent, predominantly black development community entrance… Continue

REVIEW: Another moment of truth--J*Davey @ SOB's--8/20/08

Jack Davey, hand to head



Jack Davey, Brook D'Leau and their band more than live up to the hype.



I admit my skepticism going in. I'd heard all the hype: Y'know, people losing their minds and saying J*Davey was the bom-diggy. And based on this, I'd downloaded their double CD from iTunes, The Beauty in Distortion/The Land of the…

let's clarify some stuff about who I am

I am tired of the misconceptions spinning around in the air about African Americans. We are not all the same. Not all of us eat chicken or soul food or play basketball or listen to hip hop or dress thug. Not all of us are Christian or Muslim. Not all of us can fit into a small box or be generalized into a one-size-fits-all stereotype. And people just fall in line and believe that all African Americans are all the same are just fucked up and should learn a thing or two about… Continue
