Perfect Nonsense

•••
You sit on your couch while looking out of a window that is as big as your dreams and fears. And think when will it all make perfect sense. You think, reasonably, maybe it’ll never make sense. Maybe, this world is meant to make perfect nonsense. The concrete buildings that used to excite you in this big city of yours now bore you, and you fixate your eyes o[...]

Lyrically Speaking: Madonna "Illumanti"

•••
Good music speaks volumes… rather than impose analysis, step back and expose linguistic artistry… listen, look, and linger in fantastic rhythmic reality: lyrically speaking.   https://play.spotify.com/album/2jK8P5A9i90bibpVbSS9Lz   It's not Jay Z and Beyonce It's not Nicki or Lil Wayne It's not Oprah and Obama The Pope or Rihanna Queen [...]

Serving With Slaysia, Ep. 3

•••
Asia… Asia, Asia: Asia. Is a very real thing. And reality will deal. In increasing measure. Well into the forseeable future. Asia is a Hollywood Renaissance. Black, Female, French, Bulldog. Serving for the stars. Slaying for life. Sitting sideways. Shading moonlight. Asia didn’t sign up for this, but — as a wise man once said: you don’t sign up for what you’[...]

In his own words, #nowplaying the soundtrack to Founder of Provision NYC, Marquis Phifer's life.   "(M)elodies From Heaven" - Kirk Franklin & The Family ​I chose this song because​ we live in a culture where needing people's validation becomes more important than having God's anointing, and you'll sell yourself short.

Madonna on Basquiat and Haring

•••
In a recent interview with Interview Magazine, no pun intended, Madonna talks her relationship with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and other artists of her early New York days. "They were incredibly dedicated to their work. I mean, Basquiat was my boyfriend for a while, and I remember getting up in the middle of the night and he wouldn't be in bed lying[...]

Where's The Beef?

•••
I’m so fucking sick of the “feud” between Mark Kozelek and The War on Drugs. There, I said it. Can it really be called a “feud” if it’s almost completely one-sided? I was never good at semantics, so such an inquiry may be futile no matter how rhetorical. To me, a feud seems like it should be a two-sided ordeal, a conflict between two or more parties in[...]

Waiting on No One to Pity Us While We Find Beauty in the Hideous

•••
I once read that every thing and every one is essentially perfect. We are exactly how we were always meant to be, “perfect” only because our imperfections define us as so. Literally and figuratively, where we stand now is a product of what we have done to bring ourselves here. What is and what will be seen by our eyes and our eyes only exists for our vie[...]
