Bravebird Flown Home

Pa-Trishee....I awoke on 11/26, the day of my event, to a text from your sister saying that you had transitioned to the other side. So initially of course I was numb, but I had people around me, and you know how I am. I put on a good face and tried to proceed like normal. My event went pretty well although I imagine there was something about my mood the whole night b/c I wanted to be sitting in my room alone playing those certain songs for you, and not coordinating an event. People kept asking me what was wrong, assuming I had jitters about my event. If only they knew I had you on my mind the whole time. But again you know me. I put on a good face. Still have it on now as a matter of fact.

You'll be happy to know I talked to Dorothy yesterday. She's doing okay. I told her that she is and must continue to be a 'Bravebird' as well. That lil sis of yours is something else. She told me about the conversation yall had about me. I cant believe you! *smile* I am honored by the gift that you asked her to give me. Know that I will cherish and protect it.

I cant front though....It hurts that you passed 2 days before I was to get there, and that I wont get to hug you. Im still feeling a lil 'ewwwww'. I told you of how I deal with these things. And while I dont believe your passing to be a cause to mourn, I am somewhat sad that I wont get to hear you say 'Hey You' outloud again. But I hear it in my head.....and that will help to heal the sadness.

And Trish? You aint slick by a damn sight. I know that was you that blew my light out last night. Have you been watching me all this time? Been watching me as I move in a daze pretty much? Here I was struggling to stay awake b/c I felt like I shoulda been writing for you, then I finally decide to lay it down, but to pray first. And as I pray I continue to doze off while on my knees bedside and then the damn lightbulb in my lamp just goes out!!! I know that was you saying "Boy take your ass to sleep!" You're not fooling me. I know it was you. Thank you for reassuring me though.

In honor of your World Renown 'Gratitude Wednesdays' I wanted to tell you some of the things Im grateful for. Ready? Okay....

Im grateful.......

.....for finding you. Or did you find me? :) Either way Im grateful.

......to have gotten the chance to talk with and know you.

.....for you constantly reminding me that Im 'not ready' with all "my women" and all. lol

.....that you displayed the amount of courage that you did.

.....that you actually sat and listened as I played song after song over the phone for you and that you were tolerant enough to sit through and somehow appreciate my God-awful singing.

......that you knew I was trying to make you feel better.

.....for the excitment you showed about me coming to visit.

......that we decided that we had to have known each other in a previous lifetime.

......for the "fat baby", Dorothy and your mom as they are all reflections of you.

.....for the pictures and memories I have of you b/c they will hold me tight til we meet in the next lifetime.

Rest easy Bravebird Patricia.

Stay Close,

If OJ Did It......

...then writing this book and doing this interview was a dumb ass move!

WTF Juice? Man listen....I dunno if you did it or not. I wasnt there that night. What I do know is that all that evidence against you didnt look good at all. Still doesnt as a matter of fact. You had a couple of lucky breaks during trial with Mark Fuhrman's ol racist ass opting not to plead the '1,2,3,4, FIIIIIIIF' about him using the word 'nigger' before. Then there was the famous glove and the 'If it dont fit, you must acquit' line. Speaking of which....Cochran and "The Dream Team" held you down son!!! Im not too sure we'd even be having this discussion if it wasnt for them. Had you not retained them as your council they woulda been threw ya ass up under the jail. But hey...it is what it is and you managed to beat the case.

And again Juice...I dunno if you did it or not. I just know it didnt look good. Still doesnt as a matter of fact. I do think it's fucked up that you won the criminal case, yet you lost the civil case and had to pay bookoo bucks for something the jury in the first trial found you not guilty of. To me that part doesnt make sense, but hey life aint fair. If it was there'd be no such thing as rich or poor.

But check it Juice...this is my point. Why in the name of all that is good would you write a book saying...and Im paraphrasing here so pardon me if I get it twisted....'I didnt kill Nicole and Ron, but if I did...this is how I woulda did it'. WTF man? Can you break that down for me? My guess is you were broke. Maybe you were itching to have your name in the headlines again? WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO PROVE DOG?!!?!? Is this part of your plan to find the 'real killers'? Is that what you're doing? Trying to get in their head to solve the case, huh ? Whatsinever the case is......you need to fall back dunny!

"I dunno why your advisors aint forewarn you" - Jay Z

This isnt a good look for you Juice.

Not at all man.

What Im trying to figure is.......when the fuck did it become so damn difficult to vote? At about 1:30 in the afternoon I was watching the news (It's my off day fuckers!) and they did a blurb about trouble with ballots being reported somewhere. Already!?!?!? This early in the damn day? WTF??!?!!?

I've been voting for a little more than 10 years now. I dont recall all this bullshit about hanging chads, absintee ballots and uncounted votes til oh say...............about the year 2000 when good ol Jedster presented the entire state of Florida to his brother Dubya as an early present. Until then....as far as I could tell voting was pretty goddamn simple. But ever since then....voting aint been the same.

We usta have the good ol punch method thingy. But then with the 'hanging chad' controversey happened they moved on to touch screen voting. Now the thing with the touch screen is....it's a fucking computer. Them shits break yo! Plus.....let's not even mention that ITS A FUCKING COMPUTER!!! They can rig it to turn out any way they friggin want!

Today I voted in what I guess is the newest method. The "connect the arrow" method. I swear this shit gets dumber and dumberer like a Jim Carrey movie. So in this method there is basically a broken arrow like this... '< ------' next to each candidates name. You simply must fill in the arrow to make it a complete arrow pointing to the person you wanna vote for. Seems simple enough, right? You know people are pretty fucking stupid though, right? And you know we'll never cease to be amazed how much stupider people are than we originally gave them credit for, right? So we'll see how they manage to fuck this up too.

Screw this.....Im moving to Canada. They dont have the dumb ass problems us Americano's do.

And besides.....they got better health care and gun control!

One Of Those Fly Ass Love Songs

Is there anything better in the world than one of those fly ass love songs? A love song that if you happen to be in a great relationship, it makes you take a minute to reflect on how grateful you are to be in that relationship? Or if you are single we're talking a love song that can give you something to aspire to?

Remember the anticipation you felt when you first found out that Lauryn had recorded a duet with D'Angelo for her album? What did you feel like when you first heard it? Remember......

"These buildings could drift out to sea
Some natural catastrophe
Still there's no place Id rather be
cause nothing even matters to me"

Man listen! There aint much fucking wtih that. How about Amel's "Make Me Whole"? Is that not one of the greatest love songs you've ever ever heard in your whole life? Yeah...where the hell do I sign up for THAT kinda love!?!?!?!? Fuck all that regular watered down shit. I want that pure shit mayn!!!

"I think the angels are your brothers
They told you about me
said 'you're just what she needs'
And I find myself thanking your mother
For giving birth to a saint
My spirit flies when I say your name
If there's one thing that's true

It's that I was born to love you"

Are you fucking serious!?!?!?! How can you not feel that? How can you not wanna attain THAT feeling? Must be a hole in your soul if you can find a way not absorb that.

Now dont get me twisted here. I can spit hiphop with the best of them. I do consider myself a head as Im pretty well versed with it. I dunno though....Im just different my good people. I've always vibed especially well with ballads. I can clearly remember being clowned by my brother and cousin for sitting in the dark by myself and listening to slow songs when I was like 11 or something. I just dig them shits. Always have. When I get a new R&B album the first thing I listen for are the ballads. There's just nothing like a fly ass love song I tell you.

Nothing beats it.
Nothing compares.

My Looney Dreams

You ever dream some real weird and/or fucked up shit? Im talking soooo weird and/or fucked up that when you wake up you have to pause for a second and wonder what the fuck is wrong with you? Im gonna have to get a dream intepretations book and try and figure some shit out. So not that Ive had any insanely weird dreams as of late, but the thought just struck me and so Ive decided to share some of my more weirder dreams with yall.

*There was the dream I had in which I was at practice b/c I played for the Chicago Bulls. So while Im at practice....this light skinned cock-eyed lady with nappy hair in a huge green coat(that I had seen on the bus once before....in real life!!!) came to tell me that my mama had fallen down some steps and died. Why was I playing for the Bulls? Why the nappy-haired cock-eyed lady? Why my mama had to go out on some stairs?

*Then there was the dream in which my father had me killed. I was the 705 Auditorium at the top of the stairs. He was at the bottom of the stairs. He motioned for me to come down stairs and went around this corner. This is my father so Im not expecting him to take me out the game. But just as surely as Im named after him....when I got downstairs and I cut that corner....some masked gunman shoots me in the stomach! WTF?

*And how about the time I decapitated these 2 people. I dont remember the whole dream but in the end I was OJ and they were Nicole and Ron. I wasnt angry with the people in real life. I didnt have any aggression issues at the time that I recall. I just up and relieved their necks of their heads for no apparent reason.

I mean seriously....WTF? Maybe I need to change my diet. Or maybe re-evaluate the shit going on in my life. Why cant I have normal people dreams. Who dreams this crazy shit?

What The Weird Lady Told Me

This weird Kathy Bates/Roseanne Barr/MiMi from The Drew Carey Show looking lady with reddish-orange hair, funny glasses and no neck just walked outta the cafĂ© and start talking all this jibberish to me. She started first by telling me that I have an aura about me. And that I seem to be a gentle giant. She said that she can tell that I was destined to be a leader and when I stepped into a room that I commanded attention and respect. At first I was genuinely taken aback and grateful for her kind words if not just a bit thrown off by the randomness of it all. But then she started flirting somewhat by adding that the fact that Im “eye-candy doesn’t hurt either”. (“Okay Teej. Just smile a bit and thank her and hopefully she'll keep it moving”) Then she went on about how she can sense that Im destined for greatness and that I may lose some friends by the wayside (So which of you fuckers are fair-weather friends? Hmmm…), but it was okay b/c I’d soon make new ones. And then the convo got weird……-er.

She then went on to tell me how the world needs more strong black men like myself. As a former Black Panther (Now mind you this is 50 year old-ish white lady. And that’s not to say that white people weren’t down with the Panthers or that it’s impossible, but I don’t buy it from her!), she can sense that Im down for the cause. She mentioned something about being from Des Moines, Iowa (The Panthers were in Iowa? Word?!?!) and being there from the start and the need for more programs like the Free Breakfast before school for kids and etc. Then she said something something about ‘it’ not being just a black problem but a human problem as a whole. And so this is the point where I began to tune her out and just nod and agree so she could leave me be as soon as possible.

Then she stuck her fist out to give me dap and broke out!

(Now I only feel it fair to mention that she prefaced this whole exchange by telling me of how it was her birthday and how she really enjoyed the wine she had just had. )

I still thought this little monologue to be hilarious and worth sharing.

Exit : Teej. Enter : Tzo (The Fashion Show)

"runway tip: dont walk with ya ass out, niggs will be lookin for u after the show!" - Stace

LMAO. Word! I was maaaad conscious of my ass but I swear to something sacred I still got some uncomfortable small talk from a couple dudes afterwards. Such is life I suppose.

I would love to tell yall that I ripped shit, but that wasnt the case. It wasnt hard for me to shine. The other 2 black dudes beside myself were old, short and really really gay. I had no choice but to stand out.

I went to get fitted yesterday. They had me rocking some preppy shit that you might see the boy Kanyeeeezy in. Sweater vest, zip ups and etc. Multi-layered though. Ya man was 'sweating like a nigga at a white woman funeral'. We did the walk thru like 1/2 hour before the show started.

First run : Mad nervous. A little unsure. But by time I got to the end of the runway I can tell that they were loving the kid. Okay I got this.

Second run : I aint new here. I grew here! Yalll mu'fuckaz aint ready for Tzo! Give 'em a slight pimpish stroll. Hit the end of the runway. Stop. Wink at a chick. Turn ya back. Let 'em eat ya dust. Shit was baby food yo! Maaaad easy.

"You were great! A natural I'd say. I can tell you've done this before. Do you have an agent?" - Rita Reed

Shit I might've landed myself an agent tonight. This Rita Reed lady wants me to call her and discuss her possibly representing me or something to that effect. I dunno yo. It was cool, but I still dont like this runway shit.

btw....'Tzo' is the name given to me accidentally by someone who mistook me introducing myself as 'TJ' for 'Tzo'. I've decided that 'Tzo' will be my bold side and modeling alter ego.

Yeah...so when I do some outrageous shit.....it wont be TJ or Teej. It will be Tzo. I love it already!!!

Know Your Role 2

*So this blog is essentially Part 2 of Trizzy's blog of the same name : just the male version of it. Check it out..... http://rapturous-soul.blogspot.com/2006/09/know-your-role.html

*Her blog was all about the woman's role of uplifting the man and I felt compelled to complement her blog and speak my thoughts as to the man's role.....from a man's point of view. Like I wrote in Trizzy's comments : I agree with her view with the stipulation that the woman doesnt lose herself and forget who she is while uplifting her man.

"This woman is growing weary/of having to be so strong/of having to pretend I’m made of stone/So I won’t end up with no broken bones/I can’t fight every battle alone" - Amel Larrieux "Weary" (Thanks P!)

The man in my opinion, is supposed to protect and provide for the woman. Provide her with a sense of stability and safety. I remember one of the best feelings in the world was when KK would assure me that she felt safe with me. I mean really, as a man....what's fucking with that to know that your woman is completely at ease with you?

The man isnt supposed to take the woman for granted. He is to appreciate, honor and cherish her. He's to be mindful that she doesnt have to do the little things that she does for him, and be thankful for that shit! It's all about give and take. So just like she does things for him here and there, he is to recipocate and do the same for her. After all she is a queen. Treat her as such.

(I know yall think I lost my mind with this one. Like it's out of nowhere....but stay with me if you will......)

Now keep in mind that Im not talking about having a weak woman whose job it is to specifically please the man. That couldnt be any further from the point. Im talking about a strong woman. A woman strong enough to fall back and let the man do it when she knows that she can do it just as well.

But on the flipside the man should be secure enough to not be threatened if the woman can do it just as well.The perfect couple to me would work like a well oiled machine. Filling in for each others deficiencies. Switching back and forth with the dominant/submissiveness and all. Holding each other down regardless. Truly having each other's back. The man protects and provides. The woman nutures and supports. Or vice versa.

Essentially it's give and take people.

"Im the love doctor. Yall gon and get outta here now!" - Marty Mart

Foie Gras? Faux Pas?

Earlier this year the Chicago City Council banned the sale of Foie Gras (duck/geese liver) within city limits. Foie Gras has been banned b/c of the inhumane way in which duck and geese are force fed to ensure bigger livers. Of course all the fancy smancy restaurants arent feeling this b/c they feel like they are losing business or whatever.

My question is......ummm where do you draw the line? What in the Sam Hill makes duck/geese any more privileged than chickens and cows and shit. If you gon ban one, then ban them all. I mean Ive seen "Faces of Death". I've seen how they go about killing the cattle in which we eat. WTF makes Foie Gras any worst than how they go about getting hamburger meat?

Shit doesnt make sense to me.

Teej The Model.......Again?

I have been saying for the longest that I wanted to dabble back into modeling. Be careful of what you ask for.......you know the rest.

So I've been asked by a local magazine to participate in their fashion show as a model. Apparently it's an annual fashion show that features concierges from all over the city walking the runway and modeling someone's new fall fashion line. I just hope it's not some booty ass wack label that I never heard of or that I'd never wear. Last time I got suckered into modeling for someone it turned out to be Coogi!

Okay so these people obviously thought enough of me to ask me to participate but here's the thing.....Im a lil shook and I aint afraid to admit it. I've dabbled in modeling before and I found out that I dont like the runway. I'd much rather do print. As hard as it may be to believe for some you Im actually kinda shy. I dont like all eyes on me. I get red, my face flushes and gets all hot. It's not a fun feeling. So Im have to figure out how Im gon sneak a stiff drink right before I hit the runway. I just hope my big 6'5 ass doesnt fall down or even worse yet....fall off the runway!!!

And then there is the issue of me having to tighten some shit up. I mean it's not like I have beerbelly or anything but, Im finna be on some movie star shit( losing15 lbs in like 2 weeks) and just go hard for the next 18 days. No cheese, no mayo, no nothing. Im reading all labels before I eat anything. Working out everyday......all that!

I mean what if they ask me to model some speedos or something?

I Must Confess....

...."Chicken Noodle Soup" has seeped into my head.

Im not too ashamed to admit that I been singing the shit too. What's funny is Angela swears she hates it, but she doesnt turn the TV when the video comes on. Im gonna go ahead and pin this on her b/c if I hadda just heard it once I woulda pushed it out my mind and kept it moving. But noooooo. Ive heard it like 4 times a day for the last 3 days. And the shit is catchy I must admit.

This is also a telltale sign that Im getting old. Shit we all are. All of us that's been complaining about these songs like "Laffy Taffy", "Chicken Noodle Soup" and etc. We have crossed the bridge yall.

Need I remind yall of "Just My Baby Daddy" or "Your Mama On Crack Rock"? And dont front like yall dont remember them shits either. Now I know what our parents were thinking and feeling the first time they heard us singing that bullshit. That's just how it is. Every so often we have those kinda songs that just hit for whatever reason.

I dont need to remind yall that neither B Rock and the Biz ("Just My Baby Daddy") nor Da Puppies ("Your Mama On Crack Rock") are making songs anymore.

They come and go. They rarely are thought of 5 years after the fact. That's just how it is. So for now.....

"Let it rain. And clear it out
Let it rain. And clear it out
Let it rain. And clear it out"

The Angela Files 9.16.06

Preface : In case you didnt know.....Teej the Bachelor's life/flow has been thrown for a tizzy with his 14 year old kid sister moving in his bachelor pad.

So we had "The Talk". At least my makeshift version of "The Talk". She's been living with me for about 6 weeks now. She started high school 2 weeks ago. She's getting a little body about her so "The Talk" hasnt been far from my mind at all. But shit, I aint got no kids so I was a little unsure of how to go about it. I consulted a few friends who all reiterated that I need to do it and do it soon! So after a couple of weeks of formulating how I want it to go in my head I finally mustered up the courage. It was brief. I began by asking her if she trusted me. And if she knew that I loved her and wanted nothing but the best for her. She stated that she did trust me and that she knew I loved her and only wanted what's good for her. So then I just got all blunt like "What you know about sex?" I let the initial shock ware off. She wasnt expecting that one. I then got to the big question. The one I needed to know, but didnt wanna know depending on the answer. "Have you ever had sex?" I said. "Nooooo!", she replied.


Okay.......I made it outta that one. So then I moved on. "What do you know about weed?" She scrunched her face up like 'nigga please!'. "What you mean what I know about it?" "Well", I said, "have you tried it?". "Yeah I tried it" she began, "but I didnt like it". Okay well....I woulda rather she had she never tried it. But I appreciate her honesty in the matter. I mean shit....I think I had tried weed for the first time at like 10! And knowing the enviroment and area she was raised in, that was almost a given believe it or not.

Anyways, I feel better now that we had "The Talk". And it wasnt a 45 second convo like I just made it seem. We really talked.

This might could work out.
I got a ways to go.
But this will work out.
Im sure.

In The News Today......

*Does this scare anyone else......or am I tripping?
They can try and push this 'It's good for learning the human body and it will help in fighting diseases' bullshit off on me if they want. But I aint buying it. You cant tell me that the fucking government and the CIA aint gon use this shit on people that they perceive as threats. Yall had better make like Wu Tang and "Protect Ya Neck".

*How the fuck are they gonna take it upon themselves to determine Pluto is no longer a planet?!?! Fuck you! As far as I know there are 9 planets! And Pluto is one of them, bitch! It's been a planet for like 75 yrs...before any of the these new scientist fuckers were even born! So where do they get off taking Pluto's 'planet' status and replacing it with 'Dwarf Planet'?!?!?! WTF is a dwarf planet?!?!!? Have they ever been there? No! Pluto is a planet dammit!

* "Federal emergency officials claim the New Orleans levee system is ready for another major hurricane." - Bitch it wasnt ready in the first place according to yall! Unless of course the reports that levees were blown up intentionally is accurate. So which is it?

*NASA wont leave outer space alone. I dont understand the space program. Anyone care to share their opinions on it's necessity? What the fuck is up there that they trying to get to? Are they planning on sending mugs to live on another planet? Maybe the 'undesirables'? I just dont get it. They spend BILLIONS of dollars a year on this bullshit when there are plenty of problems like health care, poverty, education, homelessness, diseases, etc. that are right the fuck here on earth and could use that money.


This is why I refrain from watching too much of the news.
