The "Later For Cochise!" List

1. "....trying to make a dollar out of 15 cents/ It's hard to be legit AND STILL pay the rent/....It's gonna take the man in me to concur this insanity/It seems the rain'll never let up/ I try to keep my head up/ and still keep from getting wet up/ You know it's funny when it rains it pours...." - 2Pac "Keep Ya Head Up"

2. Yo word to Shaneen....nobody spits it like 'Pac spat it!

3. That one was for all my peeps currently going through it at the moment. Sometimes life can really do a number on you

4. It's just a valley though. Hold on. Be strong yall. This too shall pass.

5. Oh and......hope yall had a Happy Valentine's Day I guess......*shrug*

6. I listened to alllll the hardcore and gangsta rap I could find on Valentine's Day lol

7. The fact that I love Love is no secret. But at the moment...I'm pretty pissed at it so... "Later for Cochise!"

8. That was a "Cooley High" reference for you young'ins.

9. ".....feeling insecure/ Love has got me sore/ I dont want no more" - Erykah Badu "Green Eyes"

10. "Love is for the brave. Also, for the insane. Mostly the insane." - Jean Grae

11. So after all that bitching I just did.....Minnie Riperton's "Lover and Friend" just came on and instantly I feel better about it all

12. What will be will be I suppose.....but in the meantime I'd better stock up on my supply of big boy underwear b/c I'm pretty damn sure I'll be needing LOTS of them lol

13. This list feels maaaaad melancholy thus may have to check back later for 'Happy Teej'. I think 'Somewhat Solemn and Reflective Teej' is running this one here

14. Any real friend of mine would see to it that I'm no longer allowed access to or ebay

15. The amount of money I've spent recently buying CD's and books.......I should be ashamed

16. But it was CD's and books I'm not ashamed

17. Could this quote hit me in the head any harder......?

18. "They say if you love something, you've got to let it go/ And if it comes back, then it means so much more/ But if it never does, at least you will know/ that it was something you had to go through to grow" - Heather Headley "In My Mind"

19. Dope song....still kinda stalkerish though

20. Slowly but surely.....I think I'm turning into some sorta artsy recluse

21. Now if it gets to the point where I forsake all things electronic..........#imjustsaying

22. Can you believe that the Republicans and Conservatives are trying to make the case that the recent winter storms are proof that Global Warming/Climate Change is NOT real b/c *gasp* snowed really February!?!?!?!?

23. Nevermind the fact that extreme weather is a tale tell sign of the climate change and the such. * this thing on?!!?!* All these devastating hurricanes, earthquakes and all aint by coincidence

24. Sometimes I wonder if these fools live in the same world/society/country that we do.

25. Mommy don't you worry. You'll be fine. We'll see to it.

26. This grown man business aint for the timid, frail, or all!

27. "Fly like a bird/Take to the sky/I need you now Lord/Carry me high/Don't let the world break me tonight/I need the strength of you by my side/Sometimes this life can be so cold/I pray you'll come and carry me home/Keep your head to the sky/With God's love you'll survive..." - Mariah Carey "Fly Like A Bird"

28. You know how you'd say 'such and such' is 'giving me life'?

29. Well "Fly Like A Bird" is LITERALLY giving me life and helping me to keep it all together mentally

30. Speaking of MC.....Everytime I hear a "Baby I want you back" song like "We Belong Together"...all I can hear is dude pleading his case for her. *shudders*

31. Oh and.....Mariah's song with Nikki has grown on me. I like Nikki's quirky lil style. #dontjudgeme

32. *whispers* I think I'm a Nikki Minaj fan......dont tell nobody tho, k? Again... #dontjudgeme

33. In case you ain't know and/or didn't get the memo....the new Sade and Corinne Bailey Rae albums are THE BUSINESS!

34. "...sometimes these feelings can be so misleading /She turns and says "Are you alright?"/ I said "I must be fine cause my heart's still beating" - The White Stripes "Fell In Love With A Girl"

35. "Can't keep away from the girl/ These two sides of my brain need to have a meeting/Can't think of anything to do/My left brain knows that all love is fleeting...." - The White Stripes "Fell In Love With A Girl"

36. Its so much easier to love than to hate. Hate takes a whole lot of energy and is draining upon the soul and spirit

37. And with that said I will embrace the fact that I am indeed a lover and not so much a fighter (at least not in that regard. Now fuck with me if you wanna and see if you dont get fucked up) but I digress.....

38. Lemme find out that it genuinely throws the womenfolk for a loop when a guy does that whole "say exactly what he thinks/feels" thing

39. Dear God....dont let the whole "Tainted Love" thing be more common than I originally thought!

40. I was on the fence about this Usher "Daddy's Home" song...then I heard a version with Piles on it and needless to say......I fell the fuck off that fence.

41. Piles is 99% unbearable.....the 1% bearable factor is generally reserved for DJ Khaled posse cuts b/c he usually only has like 8 bars

42. Dear John Mayer.....I forgive you. For one I know how yall tend to get a lil too comfortable after a while once you've been "embraced". And two.....I knoooooow you had to be high as shit b/c you were all over the place and not making sense at all.

43. "Sometimes I meet the 40 yr old me & say 'What do I do?' & the 40 yr old me says 'Dont do every interview. Go to the zoo instead'" -John Mayer

44. If you've yet to read the whole article, be my guest, and tell me if dont sound like son "chiefed a whole 'o' of dat presidential" (c) Big Boi

45. Learn the power of the word 'No' yall. I implore you. You'll save yourself a lot of stress and strife in the future....

46. $1500.00 is about to be my pricetag for NOT saying 'No' when I shoulda.....and that's me getting off EASY!

47. It seems as though people really like "For Lovers Trying Repeatedly"

48. Welp....that's the last one yall asses will get for free (I think!)

49. Coming Soon : "When I Die...They'll Read This And Say A Genius Wrote It"

50. "Love someone and mean it. Even if it's difficult. Especially then." - Unknown

For Lovers Repeatedly Trying

Because no one ever said it would be easy
and you sure as hell didnt expect it to be this hard

My God!

You love them.
They love you back
and thats that.

Pretty simple stuff one would think, but no.

If you factor in
the baggage
the hang ups
the near misses
the war wounds that have yet to heal
the bad timing
the inexperience
the catastrophic karma
(yours or theirs)
and just having downright shitty luck

One of lesser faith would be tempted to throw in the towel
become asexual
and "focus on my career"

Meanwhile those of us
that know it's a marathon
and not a sprint
will pick ourselves up
dust ourselves off
give it one good deep sigh
and try just once more

Because we're lovers
and lovers

Its what we do.

Introducing Dave It Fwd

The homie D'Leo has stepped his blog game up 'a hundred thousand trillion' and me being the competitive person that I am, has in turn, decided to do the same.

This is very similar to how when Puff came out with the "Cant Nobody Hold Me Down" video and that shit was off the chain, then it was time to do Biggie's "Hypnotize" video and he was like "Yo just make sure my shit is as hot as Puff's!".

So yeah that about sums it up. Imma have to redesign my shit.

Check out the homie at
