My Thought Process

Inspiration - "Thought Process" -Goodie Mob "I wanna lie to you sometimes, but I can't/I wanna tell you that it's all good, but it ain't/It's nigga's hurtin' and uncertain 'bout if they gon' make it or not/That's why we got nigga's killing/Feelin like they coming up off a little dope they sold/You can get some gold/but we won't make it as a whole/Cause without you there'd be no me/And without no unity there will never be/ any happiness/You could smoke a pound of sess/ and it still won't relieve yo' stress/God bless... my thought process"

What I'm Listening To - Portishead

Question(s) I Asked Myself Today - "How did I survive without Sprint PCS to PCS minutes?" I would be hella over my minutes if I didn't have this.

I don't always think like other people. Let me give you a little insight into my thought process. Or maybe its just an excuse to do a random post. Nevertheless, here is a list of some things that I think that you may or may not agree with.

I think that I'm always right. If you wanna win an argument with me, you are going to have to prove me wrong. I don't accept hearsay as proof either. I need annotated proof, complete with footnotes citing your sources. Just b/c your cousin said it is not good enough for me. More than likely he's an idiot and cant match my intellect.

I think Kanye West is a freakin' genius. His beats are ridiculous, his lyrics are insightful and even when he's being a cocky bastard, I can relate because his braggadocio is based on his talent. Its never a bad thing to big yourself up. If you don't, then who will.

I think snap music (that ATL shit) sux. It sounds like some shit I would have wrote in elementary school. And the music sounds like it was made on a Casio in somebody's grandmother's garage. I know alot of people dig it because you can dance to it, but when I hear it I just cringe.

I think that the whole grill phenemenom is stupid as hell. Is shinin' so serious that we have to start decorating our teeth? Gold turned to platinum. Chains turned to grills. What's next, are we gonna start wearing rubies in our eyesockets or decorating our assholes with sapphires? Stop that shit, man. Enough is Enough!!! You got money, I get it.

I think that given an opportunity, most people will lie to you. I know that sounds cynical, but to me that's the way of the world. Most people have their own agenda and are not above deception to further their goals. Ask Dick Cheney.

Did I mention that I think Tupac is overrated?

I think Nas selling out to Def Jam is both a good and a bad thing. I'm glad the man is getting the money and respect he deserves, but I also think that his artistic freedom may be compromised. I better not see Nas etherizing Jay-Z's enemies for him.

I think most TV sitcoms are horrible now a days and the funniest shit on TV are the adult cartoons. The Boondocks, Family Guy and especially South Park. Butters is my favorite South Park character.

I think people who complain about having no money shouldn't try to leave work early every damn day. This one is from personal experience. My employees always want to leave. On Presidents Day, they were sitting around getting paid time and a half for doing nothing. I couldnt understand why they would want to go home and do nothing for free.

I think that people who call me at 7 AM should expect to be cursed out. If you know me well enough to call that early, then you know that shit is a no go. I am not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination. An early morning phone call is invitation to a tongue lashing.

I think that European white people are cooler than American white people. I have nothing to base this on other than watching BBC America and listening to Duran Duran. I also think that a Black woman with a British accent is sexy as hell.

I think I would rather be ghetto than bougie. This is not intended to start an argument over the word "ghetto." Ghetto people have an innate individuality, style and a sense of pride in their community that bougie people don't have in my opinion.

I think that everyone could use could use some therapy, but I will never do it. This blog will have to be the only time I share my feelings so openly.

There you go. That's my thought process. Now discuss!!!

Ok, I am convinced that we are long lost souls or something b/c we share many of the same opinions! I can't stand Jeezy's Snowman ass, grills, or horrible ass snap music either. I blogged about all three of these in a recap of '05. Needless to say, I'm lovin' ur thought process!

1. dubya bush thinks he's always right, too. this can mean one of two things...either you're brilliant enough to be president of the united states...or you're dumb enough to be an ex-president's son who just so happened to luck up and become president of the united states. oh, and if you're always right, i hope that means you've got the goods to back up the 'rightness' of your statements. LOL

2. i agree with you about kanye

3. as a lover of music, i have to admit i'm not down with the snap music as a listener. however, i think not all music is supposed to be thought-provoking or life-changing. sometimes the only purpose of music is to get an ass onto the dance floor. snap music does that, therefore as a dancer, i'm down with it. also, while i prefer live instrumentation to canned music, i can appreciate the fact that music is found everywhere, even on a casio. i've got a casio keyboard and damnit, i love the music i create on it.

4. rotflmao@sapphires in the ass. that entire paragraph is an instant classic, like texas vs. southern cal in the rose bowl.

5. i totally don't agree with you on this one, but i think it's because we have a different perspective here. you say a person has his or her own agenda. i would say that while this is true, having a personal agenda doesn't necessarily mean a person will find it necessary to lie in order to fulfill that agenda. i'd even go so far as to say that folk would find telling the truth as an absolutely necessary part of fulfilling that agenda. the lie comes into the picture only with folk who think it's more important to create a false sense of harmony so that the personal agenda can be completed in stealth as opposed to putting it out there and letting the chips fall.

6. this one ain't worth the effort cuz you crazy so that means you think crazy things.

7. agreed.

8. add to that list harvey birdman, aqua teen hunger force, and moral orel and i'll think maybe you're not so crazy after all (then again you DO think butters is better than cartman, which is ridiculous. i expect documentation on why you think you're right. LOL)


10. agreed, although i laughed my ass off at 'tongue-lashing'...that sounds like you're gonna force her to let you eat her out if she calls you too early. somehow i doubt sistas are gonna see that as a deterrant for calling.

11. is there a bougie community? i ask because i don't really know of one, which might be the reason why there ain't no pride in it (along with the fact that many 'bougie' folk are looking to assimilate as opposed to establishing their own identity, but that's another discussion for another day.)

12. you're already participating in therapy. if this ain't therapy, i don't know what is.

lol @ the grill phenomena. Amen!

I agree. The majority of people are selfish and have their own agenda. I only say the majority cuz I haven't figured out what Mother Teresa's angle was lol.

And I'm 100% feeling you on the morning call. What in the Lord's name makes you think I wanna talk before 9am?

Nice post!

@ bb. u know I don't sleep, so why you wanna call me that early. that's just cruel.

@ D - I can get with young jeezy, I know the subject matter is ignant as hell, but he can flow. I need to go back and read your archives and check your opinions.

@ nikki - how you gonna compare me to dubya. that's just wrong.I knew you wouldnt agree with 5,6 &11. I'm actually surprised that that you agreed with so many of my opinions. And Cartman is funny as hell, but his character doesnt have as much depth and sincerity as Butters.

@ mocha - welcome to my spot. Mother Teresa knew what she was doing, she helped all those people out so she could get on TV. That was her selfish motive. LOL. I'm so sincere about that morning call. you just don't do that with me. It wont end well at all. Thanks for stopping by and I'll be checking out your blog soon.
