Idris sings and raps. I’m a wee bit confused. I don’t hate it but then again, I don’t love it.

It’s the last week to vote for those Black Weblog Awards. I’m a writer, an artistic soul, sure - I do it for the love of the literature the thrill of the stroytelling, the mere appreciative response of the reader but um… I like to win. So let’s get to clicking. You can only vote once per IP address so if you’ve already voted, tell your sister, cousin and Pookie ‘n dem to show some love. The awards are going to be live in Los Angeles at the Blogging While Brown conference. I can’t attend but in the event that BnB wins
any damnsome thing, my blog cousin Slim Jackson has agreed to accept on my behalf. But to do that, he has to get there. Can you drop $5 (or more) in Slim’s offering plate if you’re able? Appreciate it! See you back in BougieLand.
May 6th - Jumping the Broom hits theatres. This movie starring Laz Alonso, Paula Patton, Loretta Devine and Angela Bassett is an uptown vs. downtown family wedding drama. Yes, we’ve seen (read) this plot before but I’m kinda feeling Laz right now and I’m determined to support
most of theblack filmmakers out there. What say you? Will you be going to see it? What do you think of the trailer?
Ain’t no Mary Sunshine…
My parents, one Latina and one half black/half Irish decided to name me Marisol. That’s Mary and Sol (sun) - for some reason people seem to think this means I’m sunny of disposition and virginal in thought.
