M. Rocka's Convention Speech

Here is the video of Michelle Obama's speech from last nights opening of the Democratic National Convention in Denver. My computer is telling me I have spelled the name wrong....let's see how long it takes the dictionary to correct itself;-)

Psst-->> Not Diddy's Week

Damn, News Of The World is reporting that a yacht being used by Diddy, was ambushed by pirates and all guest were robbed! It took all of ten minutes.
This past weekend, TMZ reported that members of Diddy's entourage were pulled over by police with guns drawn after a traffic violation.

I remember reading Vibe mag years ago, the article was talking about how a riot started at one of his parties. I had such hope for him then. At what point does a grown man say "I'm getting too old for this shit"!
In other news, it's Cassie's birthday; Diddy's reported girlfriend of the momenet.

>>In other sad, sad news, Dr. Dre's 20-year-old son found dead in LA. Growing up in L.A. I have always heard that Dr. Dre was a stand-up kind of guy in spite of the outward appearance. I am so, so sorry for his loss.

Mama Got A Job!!!!!!!!!

Geez, these two months here in New York have been crazy and I have been fighting against losing my self-esteem day-by-day but finally, finally I have received a job offer! In general, I am a go getter; I see it, envision it and go get it. But this has been a reminder that I am on God's time and not my own. I tell ya, I was just on my way to McDonald's to fill out an app;-)

I will be the Receptionist for Siegelson, a family owned business and purveyor of fine jewelry located on 5th Ave. I begin Sept. 3rd.
After I get comfortable, I will then get back to the On-air, talent and DJing portion of my life.
I thank you all for your, friendship, kind words and help in this journey.
I will be kickin' it in Harlem tonight if anyone wants to roll!

visit tha Wu to stay razor sharp.

Take 5-->> Be Laid Back

A while back I logged onto MSN and read a heading "Are you depressed or a perfectionist"? I'm always irritated that shit is not what I envisioned it in my head. It had not occurred to me that I might be a perfectionist until I read the headline. I read the article and agreed with most points and gave myself permission to "chill out".
Today I came across another article based on being laid back. The tips are as follows:
Do one thing at a time. I mean, it's just that. which leads you to "slowing down".
Slow Down. I have a problem with this one. I want it all...RIGHT NOW. I have to remember to enjoy the process of the journey, not the destination.
Stop being a perfectionist. Don't stress over the details.
Step aside. Delegate tasks; you don't have to do it all yourself. Although, no one can take care of your business like you can so....work it out.
Remember that it's not the end of the world. Shit happens, deal with it.
Focus on what you have, not what you have to do.
Aiight, Namaste bitches;-)

>>Also, LeRoi Moore, saxophonist for the Dave Matthews Band, and of my favorite Rock/Pop bands of the '90's, has passed away in L.A. from injuries sustained in an ATV accident.

Fishburne Joins CSI Cast

According to Yahoo.com, Laurence Fishburne is set to take over when main CSI star William Petersen says goodbye and exits the cast, but still remaining as executive producer of the show.
After NYPD Blue went off the air, Cop drama's don't interest me much. Maybe now I'll tune in.

Fashion First-->> Trench Coat

FordModels.Tv shows one models personal style, and how she chooses to showcase the trench coat. You may just find a new look for yourself as well.

Take 5-->> Faith

I bear witness to the presence of God in the small actions in my life. I activate the faith in me as tiny as a mustard seed and let that movement toward God grow my consciousness to a greater expression of love, peace and joy in my life.

Funny. I have been here in New York going on 2 months. I still have not found steady employment yet I believe my being here is no accident. I remember some time ago, receiving a mustard seed to remind myself of how little faith is needed to see me through rough times. The above pic is a spoon of mustard seeds. Each seed is 1 mm in diameter. I have at least that much faith that this ish will pop....I mean it's just gotta!

First Look-->> Kanye; Santogold

Here are two great and innovative new videos.
The first is Lights Out, the second single of Santogold's self-titled debut, and the other is Kanye's vid for Champion. Enjoy.

Isaac Hayes Passes at 65

Goodness...Isaac Hayes was found deceased in his home Sunday afternoon. Read MSNBC for more. Photo.
I was just listening to Walk On By off a Notorious B.I.G. instrumental vinyl this afternoon. No shit. Just last week me and a girlfriend where joking that you could get everything you needed to get done in an intimate situation during an Isaac Hayes record. He was amazing.

Bernie Mac Has Passed Away

I knew it! Bernie Mac, real name Bernard McCullough, has been ill for quite some time. He was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia. I knew it! Damnit. TMZ.com is reporting that he passed this morning Northwestern Memorial Hospital, in Chicago. He was 50 years old.
I first saw the Mac man on Def Comedy Jam. "I ain't scared of you muthafuckas", was his big tag line and everyone would go nuts. I knew then he was something special. I am so grateful that he was able to fulfill his comedic dreams. He has 4 movies in post-production so look for him on the big screen soon. He will be missed.

Psst-->> Usher Fires Management

According to Yahoo.com, due to weak sells of his latest CD effort Here I Stand, Usher has fired his manager Benny Medina, and is set to hire back his mother, Jonnetta Patton, who had managed his career from the start till he released her of her duties in May 2007. Interesting, I guess when the going gets rough, the rough run back to mommy.
