Funkateer’s Ball IV

“too deep for some” LOL does funkateer = Funkadelic? Funkadelicy? let me just say this. at the afternoon session we played trivia and I chose the category Parliament EVERY TIME! I am literally too filled with funk goodness to be critical. I’m funk whipped. one thing I think is the parts that I could be critical about were perfect. not talking about the quality of the music because that was killing it. not everybody can play the music the way it should be played (purely subjective) and those that do can put that thang on any song. even songs about sunshines and love. LOL. at least I got Mothership Connection. and thank the universe for Tony Camm and them. lol. riding this bus home from work still going over and feeling it all it was perfectly unperfect for me. and in ways it seems mr payne knew exactly what he was doing with all my button pushing. and at this point I love it all so much that even not getting what I think I wanted is good to me. could have at least got “still tight” or sum’n though LOL. mission accomplished? I very think so…

oh yeah i know what you meant. but don’t think it can’t be too funkadelicy deep for me! LOL it’s all good though and may even be better than good. and i fully and totally agree NOTHING was wrong. absolutely nothing. folks was doing flips over the 420 set and Tony Camm killed his spot and then got down calling the mothership during 420’s set. i’m doing my best to be the ole critical me but it all still feels too good. from me starting mr waddy’s we want the funk chat to the funk allstars opening with i’m gonna make you sick to mike hamptons maggot brain to mr payne killing it then calling out the L.A. Maggots and the overall vibe of the place the event was stunningly spectacular

also please note that i have made the argument that some or even “true” Funkadelic music ain’t funk! it’s like bluesy psychadelicy rock r&b or sum’n. but that thang from Funkadelic is a major part of the Parliament i love so much. that hard so on the one underbelly of the music will always move me. was it too much to want Funkentelechy or night of the thumpasorus people?? LOL yeah, i’m always gonna have sum’n to say, it’s just my way. hope i don’t come on too strong (at least this time LOL)

Race & Reparations Day On Facebook

I honestly don’t think i could or would accept any money given to me tagged as reparations. i just don’t see myself in that kind of light. in fact, i don’t want anything just given to me at all…

The Impact Of My Words

One of the things I’ve learned during my time on this planet is that there is a constantly changing line that indicates what should and what not should be said at any given time.

Am I Happy About Everything In My Life?

Beginning my workday moderately animated and feeling spirited, I entered into a conversation while getting my water and oranges in the break room. When the standard “Living the dream” in response to my “How’s it going?” pushed me to express just how literal her response was for me.
