Since January 1 is the first day of the year, we have drawn a connection between what we do on that day (or night) and our fate in the upcoming year… I have never been one to have a resolution or eat a tablespoon of black eyed peas or any of that… and 2007 has been a banner year for me… both bitter and sweet… so in an effort to "try something new" I thought to myself… self… you should start your year off differently this year, just because… participate in all the common holiday traditions associated with the end of the year in efforts to have a year like no other in 2008! So I had to make a mental list of the things that are usually done on New Year's Eve that I have NEVER done! I have started off the last 5 years in church, so what's the EXACT opposite of that? PARTYING!!!! lol… I have NEVER been OUT OUT on New Year's Eve... when I was married, I would get all dressed up cause the husband promised to take me out on the town, and he would be asleep before Dick Clark came on… I was disappointed every year for 10 years! So I started spending the New Year at church, and had a great time! In 2004, I went to church with my son, best friend and her son, after church we dropped the kids off and went to a house party... LOL... but I want to go OUT and bring in 2008 like they do on TV! And now that I think of it, I have never had a New Year's Kiss either! The thought behind the NYK is that it will insure that you have a romantically warm year… 2007 was a year of disappointment, discovery, and independence in the romance department and I like it like that… I learned A LOT! so I am not concerned about the warmness of my romantic climate… I just want to do the stuff that I never have... maybe I will just select a man at random in the club/venue/concert and let him know that he will be the lucky recipient of my first NYK… maybe I won't… who knows... just wanted to randomly ramble about how I am planning on starting the NEW YEAR? How will YOU celebrate 2008??

a silver lining...

I got a text this weekend that read "behind every beautiful girl there is boy that fucked over her and made her stronger...send this to all your beautiful girls".. NOW.. I am a male advocate.. and this text made my head hurt. nobody ever mentions the beautiful boy that has a fucked up girl in his past.. and that is probably because boys aren't as resilient as girls and he may not be "stronger" for having known the fuck-er-upper.. usually he changes from the fuck-ee to the when you meet him, and he's a fuck-er, he may not have always been that way but you get to reap the "benefits" of his fucked-up-ed-ness!.. and when it happens to you..YES, it made you stronger because you made it through the BS.. but how much of that did you do to yourself? How much of that did you KNOW was coming but you turned a blind eye? There are instances when you are fucked over completely at random, but then there are times that if you had been honest with yourself, you could have walked away before it became that montage of FUCKERY that you now accredit with building your strength! I will admit that my sense of self awareness has been GREATLY influenced by my less than stellar dealings with men that have in essence "fucked me over".. but really why be salty about it? Don't be BITTER.. Be BETTER! The end doesn't justify the means, but if you are better for having learned a life lesson the "hard way", be thankful for it.. when you shed blood, sweat and tears for something.. it means more to you.. My PEACE of mind and self love stem from the trials and tribulations that I have gone through in LIFE, not just romantically...and the BULLSHIT was FERTILIZER for me to grow.. not just with men, but struggles and adversity in general.. no it makes no sense to ice grill him if you see him in the street.. smile and greet him warmly.. don't block your blessings by being a juvenille about your own life decisions! I feel absolutely NO sympathy for people that use their life lessons, defeats and challenges as excuses for mediocrity... yeah it was fucked.. painful.. debilitating.. soul crushing.. disruptive... and maybe even physically unhealthy.. but if you made it out to the other side... it's over now.. don't let your past dictate your future.. use it as motivation to insure you will never be in that place again! so behind every beautiful girl there may really be a boy that fucked her over and made her stronger.. but she is still beautiful and stronger and THAT is what matters! MAN UP!

I did it! I went "natural".. what does that mean? it means after 20 years of having long, chemically relaxed hair, I let it GO! I have never been big on makeup or any of that, I am talking about my hair.. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket my crowning glory..I stopped getting relaxers and allowed my hair to grow in chemical free! I cut most of the relaxed part of and got kinky twists to grow it out to a length that would be manageable and fashion forward!Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket I finally took the twists out 2 weeks ago and I have been wearing my hair ever since.. I even went to to barber college and let them cut the remainder of the relaxer off and shape my "fro".. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket It was an adjustment at first, but I love it! now my folks say "NOW you look like you should be on the MIC".. LOL.. (secret pun).. but my very good friend asked my WHY did I do it.. I thought about it.. and I have always wanted to do it.. but I was afraid that I wouldn't be pretty anymore.. like my hair was the main reason why I was attractive.. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket (giving myself the whhadafuggevahnigguh face)shallow, I know but up until my recent freedom and liberation into single-ness.. EVERY significant relationship I have been in has been with a man that preferred my hair long and was outright AGAINST it being cut! So I guess being HAPPILY NAPPY is a declaration of independence in a way too.. Finally doing something I have always wanted to do but let other people convince me I shouldn't.. and the funniest side effect of the new look is that the men that are attracted to me now, appreciate my even more natural state.. VERB!..Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

PEOPLE.. I love COMMON.. I have ALL his albums..
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I know most of them by heart.. even Electric Circus and that was his most "eclectic" effort to say the least.. My favorite album is "Like Water For Chocolate" closely followed by "Be".. I even celebrate his birthday (March 13, 1972).. I know TMI.. but I do! LOVE is an understatment.. I appreciate his voice.. his movement.. his force.. it doesn't hurt that he gorgeous.. but it's deeper than that.. I am into his mind and his lyrical prowess.. now that I got that out the way.. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket (yeah JBIGG I stole your pic, WHAT??!) I went to see my FEH (Future Ex-Husband) at the House of Blues Saturday and I was geeked! I was gonna go alone but got with my "baby mama" Reese (inside info) and her "baby mama" LIZ (sup ladies?).. we had a good time kicking it! I was alone at the actual concert but we rode together and left to go to IHOP together..I had never seen him spit live and I was beside myself.. I was not even 1ft from the stage.. and I had a GREAT picture of him holding my hand.. but the flash wasn't on so it's GOBBICH! The sista he pulled on the stage with him was standing right next to me.. she's so cute, but it shoulda been me! The sister in me wouldn't let the LONNIE-phile pull her cute ass down by her faux hawk and use her as a step stool to get to my man! LOL.. nah for real though! Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket(straight "kill yo'self" face) .. he did a piece of "I Used To Love H.E.R." but then moved to "Love Of My Life"... the place was thick with NEW Common fans, but there were only few that KNEW what we were seeing! I have seen HIM perform.. now if I could just get backstage.. a sista can say she's satisfied! Enough typing.. LET's MOVE!!!Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

My Son's 4th Birthday Party...

HEY HEY HEY...This is Shannon reporting live from the toddler social event of the season! Clarence's 4th Surf's Up Birthday Bash! ok.. maybe that is a "tad" over blown but it was a good time! Clarence III's dad, Clarence II hereafter referred to a "2", was in charge of the party and convinced his sister to throw it in conjunction with her 2 daughter's was a beach themed party with message in a bottle invitations.. (cool huh?) it was for 3 kids so the cake was too cute... it was a beach (graham cracker crumbs for sand) with 3 sets of flip flops on it, each shoe had the child's name on it and the age candle for that child was right next to their set of flops! it was very creative if I do say so myself...the festivities were on the other side of town from where my son and I live so only 2 kids came for Clarence's VIP section.. lol.. but somehow he still managed to get the most presents and money! Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket and since his older cousin read her bday cards, he insisted on reading his...out loud.. (keep in mind he will be 4 on the 18th and is still learning to he said stood up and opened his biggest card... and in a big voice he said "dear Clarence.. happy birthday big boy... AMEN!" and closed the card in triumph! that's my boy! Once the gifts were ravaged, he didn't waste any time putting his little face in that awesomely cute cake! Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket of course that was his piece.. LMAO.. we all had a good time and there was NO "co-parent" drama! I am glad my ex husband and I get along well enough for the party to have been a success but next year he will be 5.. and mommy's back on party patrol.. I will plan it and his dad can pay for it! Co-Parenting at it's finest.. HA!

Friday, September 7, 2007

I have been neglecting my blog... and it's cathartic for me to "blog" as it were... someONE happened to me... I wrote this piece in March 2007 and I stumbled across it the same day he re-appeared to me... there is something kismet about that... love is unconditional, trust and respect are not... but like all things of immeasurable, intrinsic & infinite value, ANYTHING can be re-mixed if the formula is right...might even taste better after it's more tender...I can still feel how much I meant this shit...internally...

I Don’t Know…
I don’t know how to say this…
There is disillusion in our midst…
My mind is questioning what my heart thought it knew…
And I am in the dark about my future with you…
We don’t connect the way that we used to do…
The beat of our drum is now slow and subdued….
This ain’t no honeymoon…
I don’t know…
Don’t know if our season together is ending…
Don’t know if the love we share is past tense or pending...
Don’t know if you even notice how what we’ve had has changed…
Don’t know if you care of if it’ll ever be the same…
Don’t know if what you told me you want, still is…
Don’t know if your heart is still where you say your “home” is…
Now there is silence where “I Love You” used to be…
The song our souls sang together is slightly off key…
I don’t know what to say other than I am afraid…
That even after all of my investment is paid…
A line has been drawn in the sand for us to cross…
One side is Gaines, one side is loss…
I mean we can wait it out, or do a coin toss…
But something has to be done before the tide comes to wash…
It all away…
Not the same woman today…
She is gone; she has nothing to say…
The talk says… you want to leave the place you are...
The walk says… you won’t leave until you’re a star…
And our convos say you want me to hold on to the bar…
I’m giving all I got, but your love feels so far…
It’s hard…
Trying to play the cards…
Can’t shake the feeling that I have a straight FLUSH…
Giving so much
Of myself, my life, my future, my son...
Believing in my spirit that you are the ONE…
So I wait…
Under duress…
Resentment growing and so is the stress
You can’t be concerned with me, because you’re too focused on you...
Is this déjà vu?
This is the same bullshit my ex husband put me through!
Being unhappy in a bond is something I am not willing to do…
I am going to have to let you you can do you...
I will miss you… so will my son… But what am I to do?
I can't do this, to me, or with you,
A&E4U, but... we're through...

I know it’s been a minute since I actually ROCKED THE BELLS, but better late than never right? (SMH…I know… knee grows) Basically, I went alone, flew in to John Wayne, got a rental car, and crashed with a sister/friend’s house (who didn't go to the venue with me).. it was an experience to say the least.. I couldn't believe all the people that were there...50K easy!!! TALIB and MOS.. WU.. EPMD.. NAS.. CYPRESS HILL.. MF DOOM.. MURS.. SUPERNAT.. PUBLIC ENEMY… THE ROOTS.. and when Captain Kirk was on the guitar during the Roots show.. I was in awe of that man's talent!! It was spiritual! I just recently decided to start "getting out there" more because I was nourishing the MOMMY side of me but depriving the WOMAN side... but I digress.. it WAS AWESOME.. I actually did meet a couple of MySpace-ians when I got there and we were together for a while (shout out to Needle To The Groove), but I was mostly by myself, walking around, taking it all in.... I LOVED the panel discussions and got to meet Chuck D (see pic above) but I had to leave when Flav came out.. he is too much for me.. when MOS was on stage.. I was in it! and Talib..BLACKSTAR did it big for me and when they did Brown Skin Lady! IT WAS OVER!!! That is one of my theme songs! I was in the pit most of the time.. it was so unreal to be that close to people I admire so much! got a hug from Pharoahe and Kirk.. I am weraing my Tshirt right now!! ha!! the break dance exhibitions and freestyle battles were off the hook! I wish I could have battled but I got there too late to register.. so (shrugging) I snoozed and loosed.. I have never experienced anything like it.. I went to the after party for the Dallas RTB at the Black Forest Theater, but it was very intimate (like a hunnit folks) and that is was I expected in CA.. but that isn't what I got.. I felt a little like cattle on occasion, and there was CONCERT VIP (pink wrist band) and VENUE VIP (blue wrist band) and they were letting pinks into the blue VIP until the paying dues stages closed, because the folks that were over there came to the main area and they were overcrowded.. so I felt less VIP-ish after that.. the festival was from 11am to 1155pm and it was OUTSIDE so folks weren’t necessarily happy go lucky by about 8 or 9pm...I was NOT a venue VIP (blue wrist band) and they weren’t letting pink bands in the blue VIP area anymore, BUT I am Southern sister in the midst of rude west coast hype.. so I just smiled and charmed up one of the doormen and got a blue wrist band..he was impressed that I had come all the way from Dallas by myself to experience the hip hop culture forum that is Rock The Bells! that VIP had pool tables, better food, cheaper drinks (non alcoholic for me cause Im not much of a drinker and it was too dang gone hot for all that), couches, and better stage access...I met Chuck D at a VIP panel discussion and I touched Mos Def when he was on stage (during "brown skin lady"..I was a mess afrer that I LOVE HIM!).. got a hug from the best guitar player I've ever heard named Kirk Douglas (The Roots)..and heard a song that was new to me, a more R&B-ish song called "I Can't Understand" from The Roots... it was just an AWESOME experience that I am SO glad I had... but I would do it again in a heartbeat!!!

Thursday, August 9, 2007


some know and some don't, but I am flying out to CA tomorrow morning to go to an interactive hip hop festival called Rock The Bells!! I am so far beyond the mundane definition of excitement that there are NO WORDS for this feeling! O...M...G...! I am going VIP style which means I have access to the meet and greet sessions.. the panels.. the exhibitions...and of course the concerts! The tour came to Dallas this past Tuesday, but The Roots and Mos Def weren't slated to perform so I decided to step completely outside my box and do something JUST FOR ME! I bought a ticket to the San Bernardino show because that was the next venue that had the full roster of ICONs.. I am going alone.. which is something I have never done before. I am staying with a good sister/friend of mine but she isn't going to the festival cause she has "mommy" things to do... I have a relatively new friend that will be there with friends and they have agreed to entertain me during the more than 12 hour event.. MUSIC IS MY AIR.. and this event is full of real HIP HOP culture... newsflash HIP HOP is not usually played on the radio.. but I digress.. I didn't go to the Dallas show, but I did go to the Dallas RTB Afterparty at the Black Forest Theater. It was awesome! I got my money's worth.. met some people I kind of already knew..heard some great music...and danced the night away.. didn't rest my head until almost 3am and I was an hour late for work the next morning, but it was SO worth it.. the vibe in the BFT was the rhythm of what I know is genuine creative expression.. and those that know me know I am a sucker for creative expression... I gotta pack! I'm out!

I am having trouble here people… It took me a while to get to this point after a messy and traumatic breakup earlier this year, but I am single now and ready to mingle… So here’s the issue… Where are the “steppers”? The brothers that make a sister feel like she has to step her game up! I don’t feel challenged by the men I meet! I mean I am meeting men left and right but they don’t capture me… they don’t have anything to talk about, no plan, no goals… just existing, not living… they are cool… and attractive… but that will only get you so far in “Shannon-land”… I am not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I know who and what I am and what I bring to the table in life, not just in TOGETHERness… I mean come on! In the real world looking good will get you in the door… BUT you have got to have something beyond good looks to retain your position. Confidence, intelligence, COMMON SENSE, charisma, personality, ambition, balance… you know, the basics… and if you don’t have that.. you should at least be ACTIVELY trying to get it! Hustle means hard work! I like a man with personality, passions, and peace! I am not trying to be responsible for your happiness… you gotta happy without me but ELATED when with me! I am a happy woman and it doesn’t take much to put a smile on my face… brothers ask me why I am single and I must say because I haven’t met a force that captures me! I want a MAN not a BOY with MAN tendencies! I want to connect with someone that makes me feel like I can step my game up! You know a man that challenges my mind! I swear I don’t know where these kind of men are…I know they exist.. they have to… I blame these boys’ mommas! I am a movement by myself! I want a man that makes me better! Until then… GET YOUR OWN UMBRELLA…ELLA….ELLA….AAAY!

My MIC sounds nice...check 1

My MIC sounds nice...check 2

All eyes on me wondering what I'm about to do...

Got a tingle in my spine...

Running up the arch of my back...

Cause being on the MIC... is my aphrodisiac...

I caress it gently as I wet my lips to recite...

A rhythm like love that I speak into this MIC!

I open my mouth and begin my soulful moan...

It's so hard... to believe the way rock this MICrophone...

Tasty tones flow from lips to hips...

Using my voice, I move the room into total eclipse...

Speaking in tongues that parallel the Egyptian hieroglyphs...

This sistah's the shit!!

I hear the reactions from my captive crowd...

Participation getting loud!

In awe of my skills and the technique of my flow...

reciprocating to give me a standing "O"!!

All smiles with satisfaction,The MIC is in awe of my action!

Have you ever heard a sweet song like that?

It's not the lyrics cuz I just hum the words that I lack...

Performing feats similar to fiction...

But it's a matter of fact...

Being on the MIC is my aphrodisiac!

Mental Slavery

Mental Slavery
Start with a cage containing five apes. In the cage, hang a banana on a string and put stairs under it. Before long, an ape will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, spray ALL of the apes with cold water. After a while, another ape makes an attempt with the same result- ALL the apes are sprayed with cold water.
Continue until another ape tries to climb the stairs. The other apes will try to prevent it. Now turn off the cold water. Remove one ape from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new ape sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his horror, all of the other apes attack him.
After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be assaulted.
Next, remove another of the original five apes and replace it with a new one.
The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm. Again, replace a third original with a new one. The new one makes it to the stairs and is attacked as well. Two of the four apes that beat him have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs or why they are participating in the beating of the newest ape.

That`s how mental slavery begins.....
