Lyrical Affair: Amy Winehouse - Fools Gold

She sits home and dreams
That her man will leave his mark on her hand
He's not all he seems
But she's seen a dress, she has the flowers planned
Now she won't be happy
Till she look down and sees the engagement ring
It's for security
But she will be waiting years for her wedding

For me it ain't real
It's fools gold
There too many fools sold
Not an excuse oh
For me it ain't real
It's fools gold
I don't hear everything I'm told

He won't change her life
He just chasing tail
And wasting her time
She calls herself his wife
He calls her at 8 says be here by 9
She don't notice how when she gets the ring
It's not a good fit
So next time that they row

Cuz for me it ain't real
It's fools gold
There too many fools sold
Not an excuse oh
For me it ain't real
It's fools gold
I don't hear everything I'm told

So take the gold you find
And for your own sake
Hold it in your hand
Now make sure you bite down
And watch your tooth don't break on that wedding band

For me it ain't real
It's fools gold
There too many fools sold
Not an excuse oh
For me it ain't real
Yes it's fools gold

Happy Birthday To Me Mom

A Mother's Love

A Mother's love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendored miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.

by Helen Steiner Rice

Happy Birthday me mom. O nkirile mosadi o keleng ena kajeno.

That Damn Otis Video, Man!

What's more to say?

via Scout

She Danced!

“Amy was dancing and singing to the music and realized she was being noticed by
members of the audience. Out of respect for Damian and Nas, she leaned up against the speaker and closed her eyes for a bit and took the music in. Super sweet and super talented woman. She will be missed. RIP”

I Was Feeling Down...

...and then our song went on. I told him how much healing I find in this song time and time again. He asked what could he do to make me feel better. I said nothing much really. In return he sent me these words to make me feel better:

The earth is brown,
There is Music deep at its shallow
The mountain stands to drown, so we seek salvation in the colours where blue meets yellow
We keep the day like our song suggests to hold hands just after the hellos
'Smile my love'
That's all I ask from you

Quick freestyle poem for you Beautiful. It rhymes and everything.

Needless to say that I am smiling now and the little troubles/problems suddenly seemed smaller than these 61 words.

Never underestimate the power of words.

Lyrical Affair: Meshell Ndegeocello - Beautiful

Such pretty hair
may I kiss you
may I kiss you there
So beautiful you are
So beautiful

Please, don't move
You feel so good to me
Tell me in my ear
So very beautiful

So beautiful
So beautiful

beautiful kisses

Wonder Woman Wednesday: Esther Quek

This lovely lady's name is Esther Quek and she is the Fashion Editor for The Rake Magazine. I fell in love with her down the 'street style blog worlds'. I've got a crush on her tomboyish dress sense.


While No One Was Reading

Growing up is not for kids.
I used to like a boy. He left. I stayed. It hurt. He came back. Then I left.
I have amazing friends. You should come hang with us.
I love Music. A lot. No. Seriously. It's a comfortable hiding place with no interruptions but...well, Music.
I hurt. I breath. I forgive. I move on. Its what keeps me humble. Forgiving.
I'm hard on myself. Did I tell you I'm insomniac?
I dream. Lord knows I dream. Eyes wide. Eyes shut. Sun up. Stars up.
I'm constantly searching for happiness. Stumbled across it inside myself the other day. Felt great. I think I'll go back.
I love crying. Preferably until I start laughing uncontrollably. Maybe that's just me.
I fell in love with pain the other day. What an awkward moment it was.

P.S. Did I mention I'm not a writer but i write? Yeah, I'm not, but i do.

Eye See Music: DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown...2

I have only listened to one track. The sound is COMPLETELY different. My biggest concern at first was how DJ LDLB hyped up her upcoming mixtape and saying how she "will melt any DJ's face off with one vinyl".

This was released on the 26th of July. Listen and download the album here:

I can't wait to get my hands on the entire mixtape.


Eye See Music: RZA on 'Watch The Throne'

One of my favorite Producer speaks about producing Kanye West and Jay-Z's track 'New Day' from 'Watch The Throne':

"I'm really honored to be a part of the project," he said. "These two are obviously very capable in their own right, so to include me in this classic project is a testament of how much respect we share for one another."

"Kanye asked me to send tracks while they were in Australia," he continued. "I just thought I would send some shit that would be rugged. I know they can find the poppy, hip-hop places, but I wanted to send them some real edgy shit. Apparently they thought they were great – Kanye said, 'Send some more of that Wu shit!'"

I Fell In Love With This:

“To feel…it’s as vital as breath. And without it, without love, without anger, without sorrow, breath is just a clock… ticking.” – Equilibrium

Wonder Woman Wednesday: Nini Nguyen

I have to tell you how excited i was when i stumbled across this lovely lady's site on Monday. I kept on fighting myself back from putting up this post since I figured it would be more relevant for WWW. The first person she reminded me of was Karla (karlascloset). There's just something about the way they marry their clothes. Almost like they enjoy playing dress-up and then forget how awesome they look afterwards. Like what I call 'humbled fabulosity'.

Any who... Nini is a Fashion Blogger, Stylist and Creative Director for Nha Khanhgo. Go on and have a crush on her amazing skin, hair and, of course, her wardrobe.

Check her site out hereLink
Happy Wonder Woman Wednesday
