The ManWomanBoogie

Artwork by Jason Hawkes

This art piece was inspired by the title of a Q-Tip song off his new album The Renaissance ( great album ). My interpretation of the song was that the relationships between a man and woman is like a dance. You have your good dances where you guys are smiling in each other faces looking at each other in the eyes LOVE is what they call it. Then there is the slow dances where your close and rubbing all up on each other pulling each other closer and closer PASSION. So from there you might go into a little bit of pit fight dancing, pushing, yelling, screaming, something getting thrown ANGER. Then it's back to face to face grooving smiling and laughing having a good time for the sake of love HAPPINESS..... The Man Woman Boogie, but I'm going to let Q-Tip say it best since it's his song and all.

"man/woman always doin the dance one wops, one pops
we'd be lucky if we both found a groove that we both can lock
can man be stronger if a woman is there?I would have to say yes
can women make it without men being there?she would have to be blessed
woman and man are the spiritual forces brought together to live
good thing its many of us here in the world today
find a good one to give
let's go, c'mon"

Now for some good music for you to put in you MP3 player and vibe out to....Right on to the real

Ig'nant Sh*t!!!!

You ever just stare a woman's ass and admire the firmness and imagine how soft it is, like if you touch it will it pop like a bubble...... I do. Have you ever been in the good time moment with someone and you try to keep a cool poker face but when it that time for the "jip-jap" you wind up looking and sounding like a special ed person...... I have. You ever been at work and you get that gas bubble in you lower gut and you can't hold it anymore so you try to ease it out into your seat cushion and just when you think it's cool to move, you move and it's like "Holy Cow" so you get up and walk away from you cube as fast as you can to try to avoid any and everyone...... All the time. The title of this post says it all my good folk, to take life so seriously no matter what takes place in your life sometimes you got to learn to laugh.

The Month Of Madness

Greetings, Blessings, and all that other good stuff. What's going on my beautiful people? I'm back in the mix after my little hiatus from the people, had to take on a battle with life it was kicking me in the ass and I needed to show it who the baddest man is. Journeys, Battles, Love, Pain, Success, Happiness, Guilt, damn what great moments. I woke up this morning to the alarm on my phone telling me over and over again to "Get yo ass up, Owwww!" I laughed because I've had this alarm on my phone for over a year this is the first time I actually laughed at it. Confucius says: "It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you don't stop" Ah ha I'm a scholar. Now to the topic at hand this is the month of February the month of Black history and Valentines day, the shortest month to learn my history and to show some chic that I care. I say you should have a rough one night stand while wearing a Public Enemy shirt listening to Joseph Boulogne, Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges (read your history) now that's celebrating the month my friend. Valentine's Day has never been that special to me outside of the fact that one day of the year outside of my birthday or Christmas I'm guaranteed a blow job. That's all I care about these days how and what way can I convince some lady to give me oral. They say love is for suckers I say the sucker should love their mouth on my penis, don't judge me I'm human. Plus with this being the month of black pride and love then me wanting a chic with a Angela Davis fro to get down with is not out of the question. While I make that request become reality I won't you guys to learn your history, study your lessons, find a big butt dark chocolate young lady and throw 200 grapes at her butt cheeks. Peace, hair grease and roast beef.
Month of Black Love music:
Gerald Pervert - Silky, Silky ( I Got The Oil )
Parliment Funkadelic - I've Been Watching You ( The Way You Move Your Sexy Body )
