"I Wonder" Wednesdays: Jump Up in the Air and Stay There

i know you want to...jump up in the air and stay there... -Erykah Badu

so, i, like many others, have been desperately awaiting the release of Erykah's New Amerykah Pt. 2: Return of the Ankh (March 30).  and lord knows i lust after me some Bilal (throw in some Hail Mary's for that one; i know i was wrong).  but i wonder...can i really tolerate Lil Wayne on a Badu cd?

at any rate...enjoy...

"I Wonder" Wednesdays: Snowmageddon

so, the east coast is buried in snow for the second time in less than a week.  Delaware is officially in a state of emergency, which means no one is ALLOWED on the roadways besides emergency vehicles.  Illinois had an earthquake this morning.  the fiance asked me if the world is coming to an end.  i replied, "yes."

i wonder...what might the end of the world actually look like?

Garden View: Panther

so, as a part of Black History Month (i'm assuming), the FLIX channel recently aired the 1995 film Panther.  this is one of many black films from the 90s that i never saw when they originally premiered.  my mama was one of those who actually used the film rating system as guidance when deciding whether or not i could view something.  i appreciate her wisdom (now).

anyway, i'm really grateful to view such films as an adult who's able to critically absorb them (as opposed to a young teenager who might miss a lot of the historical and political context).

Panther is a depiction of the origins of The Black Panther Party.  if you haven't seen it (and actually, even if you have, 15 years ago), i suggest you check it out.
