Chirp, Chirp..

Today's post is something that my brother over at a A SPLASH OF CIRCUS had to talk about enjoy.

Chicken Head/Hood Rat! Names used to label the women of ghettos and section A housing that uses the government to their advantage. The first of the month brings out an assortment of these “hustla” women and let’s be honest. What would most brothas in world be without them? We think that only dudes who drug hustle and are from the same ghetto backgrounds deal with these women. Not so fast. Many of my fellow brothas have tasted the fruit punch nectar of a “Ghetto Bird”, even though some won’t admit it, but that’s living in vain. I feel it’s necessary to have this kind of relationship experience through ones life to really appreciate “The One”. It builds some incredible character for a person to deal with this type of vixen. You always have to make sure her temper will not get the best of your “other” relationships and that’s some serious work. However that’s the part of her that’s so appealing to men. Let’s kill the perception that they only exits in the “bad” areas, Chickens roam the Diddy parties, Tom Joyner Cruises, The Grammy’s, and even The White House. I’m not judging anyone, but putting the phrase in perspective. A Chicken Head/Hood Rat is a mentality not a situation. They’re looked down on, mostly by other women, because of society’s views on women who are promiscuous. We know that men who have the same social practices get the “players card”, but if you honestly go by the “values”, who’s right or wrong, good or bad. I feel the only time a women of this character are look upon negatively by men is when she tells all her business about her rendezvous. That’s the funny thing about brothas, it’s all good until the bones fall out. To all the sistas reading this there is one point I would like to make about us gentlemen. We love scandalous women. If you have a girlfriend that is a skank, she is some what appealing, and you’re always talking about the things she does when you all are out. Secretly your man is thinking, “Damn, she’s a freak. I bet she gets down on that D.” These chicks offer three things that make them so appealing and wanted. They love money, drugs/liquor, and love to GET IT!!! GET IT!!! In the past I have been afflicted with these same addictions, but lawd have mercy I’m glad those days are behind me, because my ass would be looking like Tyrone the Crack head, but I digress. So I’m speaking out to you, my lovely ladies of sexual prowess. Keep your mouth shut when it’s appropriate, fixed your dude a Cheese Sandwich, and get some of these…. CIRCUS PEANUTS!!!... I’m out!!!!

Summer, Summer, Summer, TIME !!!!!!


Awww yes!!! There is nothing more better than going out and spotting the biggest ass connected to the prettiest face in the smallest pair of pants they could find. This let's me know the games have begun, this is not the season for finding Ms. Right it's about finding Ms. Rightnow. On the flip side I think I'm always looking for Ms. Rightnow as the Great Rick James says " Give It To Me Baby" but hey that's my nature. So I was watching this movie the other night called " I'm through with white girls " which is a good guy movie, I'm not going into any detail you'll have to check it out for yourself but it made me sit back and think about my present and past relationships and the conclusion I came up with was.......... I'm a farter! not the ones that you'll go whoops excuse me. I mean just a can of Mexican rice and beans and a glass of milk joint, I thought that after awhile we were at that comfort zone but I guess all that goes out the window once they pass out from one of my episodes. Damn I can't help it if I like greasy food and nachos with extra sour cream love me for me damnit! Haaaaa ya'll thought I was going to be all serious it's Friday and Ignorant Sh*T is in full effect. Yep! Yep! (Teddy Riley style). Enjoy your summer and most definitely the summer bunnies. I'm out til next time.

Remember The Times......


You remember back in the day when you used to play hide and go seek and it immediately turned into a little league humpfest. Remember when you could ride your bike to the store with like $2 you got a jungle juice, 2 packs of Now or Laters, candy bar and had money to play Double Dragon in the arcade ...Shout Out to Hop 'N. Remember playing Killer Man and it was always somebody who just picked the football up to just throw it before he got tackled. Remember how hype you used to be when G.I. Joe or Transformers was about to come. Remember how you felt when Optimus Prime died. Remember being glued to the TV when Rosi Perez used to shake her thang on Soul Train...My dad called her "The Jiggler". Remember going the dances and doing the Whop to every damn song. How about finding your dads Porn stash, the beginning of it all .....I still remember that Vanessa Williams Penthouse book. Or when your voice started to change and you be on the phone talking all smooth and low tone. Remember when you got that first stink finga and you'd be smelling that joint like all day, putting your fingers up to your boys face like guess who that is homie. Remember you finally got some and after 1 min of slam bam you felt like a champ. These might not be your memories but they are definitely mine so I encouraged everyone to just sit back and reminisce of easier times especially if your just sitting at work tired of looking at your computer screen or moving some stuff and you want to just get away. You never know you might find yourself laughing out loud. Good people I send you blessings and wish you much joy in your days.
God Bless !!!

Darondo!!!

video
"A street savvy Al Green" UNLEASHED MAGAZINE

A mystery to most, Darondo records are high on the wants-lists of many collectors. He is spoken about in hushed-tones by other Bay Area musicians. Back in the day he was seen cruising around town in a white Rolls Royce (with a "Darondo" license plate). He opened-up for James Brown and lived a colorful lifestyle hanging with folks like the notorious Fillmore Slim. Take a listen to these tracks, released for the first time together on an album, and you may agree that he could have been the next Al Green or Sly Stone. But about 25 years ago Darondo disappeared. Releasing three singles in the early 1970s (as Darondo, Darondo Pulliam, or the miss-spelled Dorando) he mixed low-rider soul with blues and r'n'b. He delivered in a variety of styles from the socially-charged "Let My People Go" to the sexually-driven funk of "Legs". All three singles were recorded in the San Francisco Bay Area, and both sides of each of the singles are fantastic productions."You can hear a little bit of everything," says Darondo about his music style. "There's a little jazz and a little soul. They say if you Black you supposed to have soul. I got Latin flavor in me so there's some Latin in it. Definitely got the Blues in it. I sound kinda' country but I grew up in the Bay Area," he adds.But after the release of his three 45s Darondo stopped recording. “It was mostly me, just having a good time with a real good hobby,” he says. “It wasn’t about money but about having fun. Something I just liked to do. Maybe your dream is to be a James Brown or Frank Sinatra but those were just mostly dreams to me.” Outside of the music business Darondo was living life to the full, and it eventually caught up with him. “Folks would say ‘Daron got that dough…Daron Do…that’s how I got the name. I used to get my suits tailor made, one of a kind, like my rings. A player can’t have the same ring as someone else. Got my rings specially made with diamonds and stones. But in order to get yourself together you had to get away from all the fastness. I was driving around in a Rolls Royce, I was a fast young man," adds Darondo. Darondo now lives in Northern California with his wife and family and is delighted to hear his music is getting a second wind courtesy of DJs and collectors like the UK-based Gilles Peterson who recently picked "Didn't I" for his "Digs America" compilation. The six tracks from the three original singles are featured here, along with three previously unreleased songs that were recently discovered on a demo reel. The demo reel was sitting in a box of VHS copies of his cable TV shows which we had requested to use for images in the CD booklet. Recorded in the early 1970s, tracks from the demo reel were taken into a San Francisco studio in the summer of 2005 for enhancement. Darondo over-dubbed missing background vocals and guitar parts alongside up and coming San Francisco soul man Bing Ji Ling. Darondo warmed up quickly, he hasn’t lost his touch. After the session Darondo confessed that he was inspired to start playing again…so there is hope for a full-blown Darondo revival!......article taken from UbiquityRecords.com

Music On My Mind!!!!


Yo! What's it is good people? I can't believe it's mid-March already Basketball is getting intense with the NCAA tournament about to jump off, the NBA is tightening up getting closer to the playoffs ( GO LAKERS!) this is one of the best times of year for me . Today I'm just going to lay down some music that I have been bumping in the ride lately, is it me or does music these days seem disposable. I mean what was a hit 6 months ago you don't even hear it anymore, people are trying to make a hit but could care less about a classic ( I'll get into that in another post ). Anyway this post is dedicated to great music that's all that's it, also go check out my man Scholar over at Souled On Music for even more dope music to add to your music selection. If your still wanting more hit up The Two Team for some dope mixes of classic funk for that ass. Well that's it for me today I'm going to grab me a Splash Of Circus Peanuts and politic for the rest of the day.

Hawkes Out!!

Just A Rant!!!



What's the good word people?? I'm still on the trail to fame in this timeline of life, battling the day to day fight to beat the Matrix and not get pulled into the world of work and home ( that gets so boring ) I feel like a robot these days. I'm getting older and I'm seeing things very opposite of the way I saw things when I was younger and a part of me misses those thoughts, and situations there was a joy that came from all of that good and bad. I ask myself a lot is this what getting old is about being bored, I had a relative of mine tell me one time that I'm finally looking like a man in the face. Huh? is it because I now have stress in my life the wear and tear is coming through is that what being a man is about......that's some ole bullshit! Dating is another issue, now every female you meet is either a man hater or just not coming of the panties, but the one time sex crazy attached chick is always around maybe it's the one's I attract. I just want to find a woman that's goal oriented, loves life, music, art and likes to give the occasional surprise hand job in a resturant booth is that too much to ask? But as I was told as a child in order to see the rainbow you have to go through the storm but don't regret the storm, so now after I've just finished up my rant ( which I actually feel better now) I'm going to continue on finding ones self, make sure my glass of cognac is never empty ( that would hurt more than anything) and as my favorite song goes " Keep Rising To The Top!!! "

Peace!!!

And It Don't Stop....


What it is? What it was? What it gon' be? Man I haven't blessed the world with my presence in a minute been on a personal/spiritual journey and fighting a case of the flu, so I've been out of it for a minute. I return now with somewhat of a clear mind there's still some mysteries of the small kind that I intend to figure out and but that's in due time. Anyway excited this coming Wed. I'm going to see one of favorite rap groups Brand Nubian "All For One" was the first rap tape I bought with my own money when I was like 12 I still know every song word for word Grand Puba was that dude for me back in the day. I'm also excited I sold my first painting this month so I'm real hype on that so while the joint keeps burning the trip through the inner minds eye keeps moving, I'll see you guys on the flip side.


God Speed!!!


If you take responsibility for yourself you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams. ---- Les Brown



Ol' Dirty Bastard - Cold Blooded -- This joint is why Ol' Dirty will forever be my favorite Wu member taking the Rick James classic and putting his classic dirty to it with the unknown Neptunes doing the back drop for him


Nancy Wilson - Let It Flow -- I got this off her "Music On My Mind" album her voice has always captured my attention it's so jazzy and sultry. This song is very relaxing and goes great with a glass of Cognac.


Bugz In The Attic - Consequences -- Found out about this group while working at Duke Univ. radio station, although recent their sound is some 80's funk taking it back to the block parties on 4th of July at my Aunt Edith house.


Van Halen - Hot For Teacher -- Do I really need to explain it's Van Halen ......Nuff Said!! Who didn't wish there teacher would get into a binki and walk down the middle of class on a runway.......... I did!


Mad Skillz - The Nod Factor -- Richmond Va circa 95-96, Cloverleaf Mall, 6th St. Marketplace, Sunday's at Byrd Park this song right here is all of that, Skillz put Va on the map and this song will always hold me down.


Reflection Eternal - 2000 Seasons -- The introduction to one of my favorite MC's I first heard this song around '99 even though it had already been out for awhile already and it blew me away and pushed me further into the crazy backpacker movement that I was in. I still love this track enjoy.


Mavis Staples - A Piece Of The Action -- This is from the movie of the same name starring Bill Cosby and Sidney Poitier one of many good movies the two did in the 70's together. This is song they play at the end and I always loved it because it made you feel good then later I discovered the soundtrack and it's done by Mavis Staples and Curtis Mayfield and it's a great album to have in the collection.

It really gets no better than a Dilla instrumental to grab an emotion.

Incognito - I Can See The Future
This song right here makes me just want to dance all the pain away......and I don't dance

Roy Hargrove Feat. Q-Tip, Erykah Badu - Poetry
This is just mellow and touches the soul with Ms. Badu singing so lovely

Paul Harcastle- Rainforest
Classic right here riding out on a country road letting it all go

As Outkast would say " Shake the load off "

The Sunday Social.....


What's happening world?? I'm back to bless the good people with some great music to vibe to before the work week steals your sunshine. I'm going to give to the people one of my many mixes that I create usually when I'm sipping some cognac or feeling the good vibe of mother nature's best medicine. Funk Soul Sensation is a mix that was done because I just got tired of listening to the radio and hearing music that I couldn't take listening to anymore. So I sat back and thought if I had my own radio show what type of music would I bring to the people, and this mix was created. There is no tracklist but I'll run down what grooves that will be heard in this mix there's some James Brown, Gil Scott, Aretha Franklin mixed up with some Mos Def, Lox back to Grover Washington, Donald Byrd with some Pharrell and Snoop very special blend of music but trust is sounds so well, I'd never stear you wrong folks. Anyway I hope you enjoy and I also wish you good people a blessed and superb week.

One Hundred Miles and Still Running!!!

Back To Life!!!!


Yes! Yes! So Fresh! is the word, I don't how many people read my "Limp Woodstock" post but Ms. Smell Good made her way over to the spot and I must say "who's a star, I'm a star". Just wanted to throw that out there I had to redeem myself haaaaaaa!!! Anyway I think this year if a lot of you haven't already I feel this is time to do what you enjoy and love every minute of. I talk to my friends all the time about just waking up going to work for 8 hours coming home eating dinner or a snack watching a game and going to sleep only to do the same thing over again. I felt like a complete robot in '07, now God has blessed me a few gifts that I only use when I'm pretty much bored or when I need to clear my mind. I am a pretty good artist( will post some work later ), I can sing a little bit ( Look for that Gerald the Pervert album this summer) , and I like to think I have a great ear for music. So with these gifts I have,why haven't I focused on these things to atleast master the art of each of them. Well at some point in my life I became lost in the "Matrix" of the world, a fell into the flow of that nonsense. So this year is all about the change of me and getting BACK TO LIFE and happiness.
