Chemistry

Love this song!




Its simple chemistry
but the equation is so complex
timing is everything
the combination is more than sex

This song is freaking amazing. To think i only found it because it was the theme song of a webseries on youtube (RoomieLoverFriends). Thank God for youtube mehn! Where hollywood refused to give black talent a chance, there are so many brothas and sistas out there doing it themselves.

Issa Rae for President ya'll! And i'm out.

(Have a great week)

Boom, There it is

So President Obama is still leader of our country. Romney apparently didn't write a concession speech (only an acceptance speech, pobrecito) and refused to concede Ohio for a while...even though winning Ohio and the rest of the states that were still being counted wouldn't have won him the election...which led to me being up until the wee hours of the night waiting to hear the speeches.

But this has been a landmark election night in a lot of ways that have nada to do with the presidency.


  • Maryland and Maine have voted to legalize same sex marriage (Washington and Minnesota are voting as well and its pretty much 50/50 at this point- we'll have to wait and see what happens)
  • Colorado has voted to legalize the recreational use of marijuana for adults 21+ with regulations on growers and sellers. Interesante!
  • Florida has continued their fuckery and inability to conduct an election properly. Around 1am poll workers said screw this and left, leaving almost 200,000 ballots uncounted, over 2000 ballots were thrown out because they weren't signed, and by midnight (AFTER the election had already been called) people were still in line waiting to vote (which i respect).
  • Oklahoma (also on some bullshigiddy) has gotten rid of affirmative action. *insert eye roll* I wonder how my grandma voted on that one. I should call and ask lol.
  • The 1st openly lesbian woman, disabled woman, and asian-american woman have been elected to Congress.
  • Puerto Rico is here again with their nonsense. This is like the 4th or 5th time that they are deciding whether or not they wanna be our 51st state. Every other time its been like 49/51 type split. Wonder what its gonna be this time around.
On another note-
  • Mr. Romney's speech was a crock but hey, this man just lost the presidency. I don't blame him. I'd be mad/sad as $#!+ too.
  • Obama's speech on the other hand was worth waiting for. That is one smooooooooooooooooooth brother! I'm trying to find me one.
  • Of course Michelle's outfit was fab and her hair was laid. That lady is awesome.
  • Obama's camp was singing and swaying to Lets Stay Together. I swear some of those people were singing like it was a praise and worship session and others had absolutely no rhythm. Funny sight to see. 
  • Shephard Smith had me in stitches all night man. He's too much. A.B. Stoddard on the other hand was just tap-dancing on my nerves all evening.
Anywho its 2am and everyone is finally done speaking, for tonight at least. Congrats to Barry-O and Uncle Joe on 4 more years. Prayers for some actual bipartisanship so we can move the country forward (i'm looking at you Congress/Republicans!)

Tumblr

Tumblr is crazy. I love it but its crazy. One second you can scrolling past a perfectly innocent gif of spongebob making a krabby patty and the next you're scrolling past an orgy (which is why i tend not to long onto tumblr around other people...don't want folks thinking i'm more perverted than i actually am).

Just now i was scrolling through my dash and i came across this pic of some chick smoking crack. Now, at the moment, this photo has like 150 notes (likes and reblogs for those not familiar with Tumblr lingo), and not a single mention of the fact that this chick has a freaking crack pipe to her lips. Apparently i'm the only person concerned about this lady being a potential junkie.

Oh and did i mention shorty is butt-ass nekkid in this photo? Yeah. When i say there is absolutely no redeeming quality to that photo...lol. And to add nonsense to the ingredient, the chick in question is the one who posted the pic in the first place...and her husband was the first person to reblog it. Is that whats really hot in the streets? I mean...if thats how they get down, God bless 'em. But shwooosh.

Anyway, so yeah, I enjoy my tumblr life. But that place gets crazy as hayle sometimes.

Performing my civic duty


It was soooooo crowded. I can't imagine what its going to be like on actual election day. Glad i got it done and over with early. The ballot was lengthy as all hell too. In addition to the President, there were also 11 constitutional amendments to vote on among other things. In all there were 26 items on the ballot. The hell. I'm really glad i took a peek at my sample ballot when i got it. If i had gone into the voting booth sight unseen i would have cried real thug tears (and it would have taken much longer).

Funny, the guy who gave me my ballot was like "aww, is this your first time voting" For a solid 5 seconds i was just like "what???" I turned 18 when Bush was elected the 2nd time (or the 1st time depending on how you feel about the situation lol). But i'll just pretend to take as him giving me a compliment on my youthful appearance. And then some lady called me a gentleman which was really weird. I mean, my hair was down and the cleavage was on full display. I understand the joke she was trying to make but...yeah.

Anyway, have a great weekend everyone. And happy new month.
