Where Are They Now

If you were a big fan of Jem, Sailor Moon, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles you will definitely want to see this "Where Are They Now" video.

Who Said You Can't Be SGL and Saved?!?

So often many SGL people have turned their back on religion and God because of the lack of acceptance in mainstream religion. Well, Rehoboth Temple is a radically inclusive church right in the heart of Harlem. You can find out more about the church in the video promo below or by clicking here.

Latest Passion

I've been in this whole new redesigning kick lately in my apartment. I have switched my bedrooms and purchased new furniture and the whole nine. I'm even thinking about changing out the sink in the bathroom and some things in the kitchen. I just got my living/dining room to where I am content now. So just posting some pics to show the progress.

I Love Brunches

Here are some pics from a brunch over at Arden's. I love brunches but because I've been going to church on Sunday and service starts at 1, I've been missing my old gang. I was so glad that Arden had one so I skipped church. LOL, don't tell anyone. There is just something about having nothing to do for the day but to sit, socialize and eat. Let me put it to you this way, it started at 1 and I left around 10. We were there so long that Arden fixed dinner as well. Love ya Arden.


I found this piece haunting.

O.K. Some of you know that I have been dieting and exercising to help get rid of the love handles. And I have brought my weight down from 220 to 205 and have been maintaining. Well, today is our holiday party at work and we are supposed to wear suites and dress up for this event. Mind you, I haven't worn a suite in God only knows. I went through my closet and tried on all of my suit jackets and they are way too big for me now. It reminded me of when I was a kid and would try on my dad's jacket. I found it so weird as I have been a 42 L since high school. And a few years ago these jackets were a little to small for me. Today I went to the store and tried a 40 L and it looks mighty nice on me. I know that my clothes have been a bit loose on me but never expected this.

The problem is now that all of my suites either have to be altered or have to buy all new ones.

My Family

Here are just a couple of video clips of my Dad and step-mom and my brother, sister-in-law, nephews and niece.

This is of my nephews and niece dancing. LMAO

This is of my nephews and niece playing wwwf. She is such a tom-boy.

Here my dad and step-mom are at a kind of build-a-bear workshop and never realize that it is for the bears that you create. They thought it was for dogs.

Vevo Launch

I've been excited about Vevo for quite a while. Vevo is a joint ventured owned by EMI/Universal but teched by Google. What does that mean? The easiest way to explain it is that it's the YouTube of music videos. Several recording companies allow their artist videos to be viewed on this site, all in one place. No more going to MTV.com, BET.com and then YouTube trying to find a music video. But even better, to me, is that it has playlists or ones that you can create yourself which will play videos one after another. This would be awesome for a brunch, or get-to-gether. You really have to check it out. www.vevo.com. I was on it earlier and it worked fine but this afternoon, it seems to be a bit slow. Probably first day glitches.

"Maya Angelou Is Insufferable"

This is so wrong but so funny.

Black & Gay IS Beautiful

For those of you who may not have heard but a few weeks ago Donnnie McClurkin was in a youth convocation (COGIC) and talked about homosexuality. There is a reference that has been said that he is comparing gays to vampires. I'm not sure if that was his reference when I listened to it as the video I saw was a bit hard to see. I did pick up on the fact that several times he refers to gay being damned. Which if anyone knows is one of the only true curses. However, there has been a wave of backlash and praise regarding it.

You can view the videos in question part 1. and part 2.
