In My Write Mind
5 songs in my head this morning...
Keep Ya Head Up, 2Pac
Body & Soul, Anita Baker
I Try, Talib Kweli
Didn't Cha Know, Erykah Badu
I Need You, Jilly
Damn...all of those songs have a positive message. I guess that's the mood I'm in today--slow, yet optimistic. Nice.
Quote of the Day:
"Everything's changed in New York. When I was younger, if you threw rocks at pigeons, they would scatter. These days, they catch the rocks with their beaks while giving you the middle feather."
Last week, I picked up Season Two of IN LIVING COLOR and after watching over the weekend, I have only one question: WIDHHTL? Translated, that comes out to What In Da Hell Happened To Lisa? You remember her, the Flyy Girl almost every heterosexual male lusted after during the show's run. Where is she? What is she doing? Is she married? Kids?
Does anybody know? If so, please do share. If not, we need to investigate. Seriously...
If you haven't yet, try to watch a quarter or two of NFL Football on either CBS or Fox one Sunday. Not for the game necessarily, but for the NEXTEL commercial with the three guys in the office jamming with the boombox. I was home Sunday (which is shocking in itself) and caught it. Hilarious. Trust me.
WEEKLY BIG WILLIES
And speaking of being home Sunday, is there a better night for television than Sunday? If so, let me know. I find myself actually flipping channels trying to keep up with all the action: On CBS, there's 60 Minutes (for current events and solid journalism); on HBO, there's The Wire (Avon's home, dawg!!! Watch ya back, Stringer!), ABC's Desperate Housewives (great
new quirky show) and Boston Legal (Denny Crain!), VH1's Surreal Life (two words--Flavor Flav) and whichever Law & Order cousin is on NBC. Add to that the Fox lineup of Malcolm, The Simpsons and Arrested Development (which will premiere after the World Series), and you've got THE strongest night on television since the NBC glory days of The Cosby Show-Different World-Cheers-Night Court-LA Law! Hell, even that Extreme Makeover show will have me watching as long as they keep renovating black people's homes.
So, the first ever IMWM Weekly BIG WILLIE goes to Sunday nights. It's not just TV...it's BIG WILLIE TV now. :-)
