I asked for it, so I guess I have to answer now. Here is my TMI post. This is gonna be a long one.
I Like Liquor And TV asked:Cut or Uncut?
I didnt know what you meant by this at first. But from the other comments I concluded that you are asking if I am circumcised. First of all, stop thinking about my johnson and second of all, I am circumcised.Y'all Hirin?
All the time. My department is so shortstaffed its ridiculous. Come on down, we around the corner from the Popeyes on Windy Hill.Do They Still Harlem Shake?
I havent been to a club in eons, but I hope not. Looked like they were having convulsionsWhat's your favorite ice cream flavor?
Breyers VanillaDo you tuck your shirts in when you are not working?
Depends on what I am wearing. If I got on jeans, then no. But if I am wearing slacks, then I do.Do you call a Black professional?
I call myself a corporate thug. I'm just a guy who fell into a job b/c I didn't know what to do with my English degree.
SandyBaby asked:What are your feelings about God/church/Christianity?
Let's see how I can answer this. I love God, but I dislike the church. I havent found that church that makes me feel fulfilled. I try to live according to His word,for the most part, but I fall short like everyone else. The root of my problem with the church is money and hypocracy. I hate to see preacher ni houses with elevators and pushing Rolls-Royces when their are people who cant pay their light bills or feed their children in the congregation. The rational part of me knows that it's not the preachers responsibility to take care of another grown person, but I feel like if you are going to project a Christ like image, then you should be charitable. I was raised Christian and I have found my way back to it, but I went through a soul searching period where I studied other religions, like Islam, Rastafarianism, Five Percent Nation etc. Those never really stuck with me. I think the appeal of it was more social than religious as they appealed to the radical Black man in me at the time. I could do a whole post just on this topic, so I will move on.Do you watch Flavor of Love? What's your opinion of that show?
I refuse to watch that minstrel show. See the post called Don't Believe The Hype. I would link it, but I'm lazy and got 50-11 more questions to answer. Its on the right under favorite posts.Describe your most embarrassing moment
I can't tell you this one... lets say it involved my best friend Gautum's house, some blue footy pajamas, a sink, and loss of bowel control. It is a hilarious story, but too embarrassing to speak on.Has a gay man ever stepped to you? How did you handle it?
It hasn't happened yet. I honestly don't know how I would handle it. I probably would be like, "I like women" and step. No need for a big scene.Why did you have to work on Labor Day?
B/c my job can't function without me. Even when I'm not there, they are calling me. I really am getting pimped and I know it. The next step is doing something about it.Do you like white people?
Damn, Sandy!!! You really going for the gusto today, ain't you. Lets say that I have a love/hate relationship with the lighter race. I try to judge each man on his merits, but it doesnt always work. I think I am distrustful of white people, but I don't hate them. There's always something in the back of my mind that says, "what is this white person up to?" I don't have any white friends (not even that token one), but as long as I'm respected as a man, I will respect them the same. Does that answer the question? I feel like I kinda side stepped that one. LOL
Missy AKA NegroPino askedWhen it rains do you use an umbrella?
No, I'll just get wet. I usually leave my umbrella at work or in the car, so it defeats the purpose.What size is your TV?
I have a 27 inch in the living room and a 19 inch in my bedroom. I need one in my computer room but I would never leave this room if I had one.Do you have a bedroom set?
Ummm... No. My bedroom is a masterpiece of minimalism, which is a nice way of saying empty.Do your sheets/pillows/blanket match?
Yes, they do. I have a cream comforter so it matches just about any set of sheets I put on the bed. I just go for the basic sheet sets, nothing fancy or flashy.Is your portfolio diversified? How much dough u got in your 401k?
I got 5 years of contributions and matching by my employer. Sorry, I just dont think I could tell you how much is in there. That's a little too much (or too little) information. LOLWhat kinda wedding have u imagined?
I waver between the big fancy wedding and the going to Vega$ thing. It just depends on who I finally trap to be my wife. Whatever she wants is cool with me. The only requirement I have is no white tuxedos and lots of liquor at the reception.Watch any girlie shows you will admit to?
Hell yeah! Gilmore Girls is my shit. I dont watch that much TV anymore, but I will be watching that every Tuesday.Whats your favorite Women's website?
I dont understand the question, but I'll give it a shot. If you are talking about site to see naked women, then I am partial to Tiava.com. They got their porn categorized, so you can always find what you are looking for.Do you subscribe to King magazine?
I don't. Last magazine I subscribed to was Vibe about 4 years ago. I'll just check it out when I go to the barber shop.What side of the bed do you sleep on and TV on or off?
If I am alone, I sleep on the right side of the bed with the TV on the History Channel or Court TV, or an old movie from the 30's or 40's. I cant sleep in silence, because my brain goes on overload.
If I am sleeping with someone, I'll let her choose which side she wants and sleep on the other side behind her in a spoon position until I fall asleep. After that, I roll over and can't be touched or I'll wake up.
Miz JJ asked...Do you believe in one soulmate for every person?
I think there are at least 2 practice soulmates and then 1 real deal. The only thing is you never know which one is the real deal while its happening. It can feel that way, but then its like that was good, but this one is better.Why do you only eat once a day?
Here we go again... LOL - It's like this. I eat when I get hungry. I dont get hungry until the day is almost over. I know that is not good for my metabolism, and I swear I am not starving myself, I just always have been that way since high school. Also if I eat during the day at work, I get the Itis real bad and I'm no good for the rest of the day.
Nikki asked...What publications do you read? Where do I get my news information?
Whatever is in the barbershop. I don't read much anymore. I get my news and entertainment from the internet and TV news.Democrat, Republican, Independant or Other?
I would consider myself a democrat. I do however have no loyalty if I agree with someone else's platform. It just doesn't happen much.How much a year do you think you'd need to make in order to have everything you want materially speaking?
Whatever I'm making at the time. I don't live above my means, and I am not money driven. I've always been able to make due on what I have.When you gonna finish that screenplay?
That's a great question... excuse: I been going through some things lately that have superceded my desire to finish it. The real? I really don't know if I have the drive to see it all the way through. That's my struggle.What's your favorite time of year and why?
Autumn, because the weather is perfect and there's football.
Chele askedMost men are homophobic because they actually fear that they are gay. Do you have this fear?
First, I have to disagree with your statement. I don't think this is why men are homophobic. Secondly, I don't like that term, homophobic. It makes it seem like men are afraid of gay people. Thirdly, I don't have that fear. I have had lots of crazy thoughts, but sex with a man is not one of them.We call a defining moment the event in your life that shook you to the core and caused you to change how you view the world. Describe your defining moment.
Great question! Damn! Let's see...I think when my girlfriend of 2 years broke up with me when i was totally in love with her. It made me realize that I really didn't have complete control over my life like I thought I did. It also made me look at people's intentions with skepticism. Kinda closed off my heart for a long time.
Royce's Daughter asked...If everyone was going to disappear tomorrow (except you and one other person...who had to be a female and not a celebrity), who would you choose to live the rest of your life on earth with and why?
This is going to sound crazy and I know it. Hell we both know it. I would choose Trizzy. I have never been so connected with someone in such a short period of time. I hate that leukemia may take her from me before we have a chance to live out our lives together. If I feel like I feel for her in 3 weeks, imagine what we could have in a whole lifetime. I know that effectively destroys any chance i had of being an internet pimp, but i don't care. I love her like I have never loved anyone else in my life on a pure and spiritual level and I refuse to deny that. She is just a beautiful soul and I cherish the time I have with her, however long that may be. It's unexplainable, and it's totally out of character for both of us, but it just feels like it is supposed to be.
The Stiltwalker asked...Some days you seem desperate, others you "seem" like you don't love them ho's. What's really going on cause I'm speculating the hell out of your story over here...
It's like this. I am a sucker for love. I never been like I don't love them hoes. That just is not in me at all. Maybe it seems that way b/c I am content with being by myself so I don't have a high tolerance for people that get on my nerves. As far as the desperate thing, I don't think I am, but I do fall hard and fall quickly. It's not even a desire to get married or have kids, I just live in the moment and if I feel it, I say it. I hope that answered the question. If not, I'm sure you will let me know.
KZ asked...Dude, can you describe how mad you were when you found out?
On the real, I wasn't even mad. I was shocked, I was blowed, but I didn't get mad. It may be a strange reaction, but I laughed. I laughed at myself for getting fooled. I laughed at myself for even taking it there. There was always a little voice in my head that said something is wrong. Everything was just so difficult. Honestly, when I read the email I was a little relieved she didn't say she was a man.
Blah, Blah, Blah askedCan I stay with you when I come to ATL in 2 weeks? and...What's your thread count on those sheets?
Hit me up and we will talk about that offline. Remember I (you) could be a psycho. LOL And as far as the sheets, hell if I know. Whatever the cheap Target sheets are. I know, I need to step my grown man game up, but it's just me here, so I'm good.
Rob Mack asked...Ok, how's a dude like you still single in Atl? That is straight up hyprocrisy on my part, but I just wanted to know...because I hear that the black women down there are just in abundance.
Here is the stock answer: Women in the ATL don't like me. I'm a regular joe. The flashy dudes and the thugs get all the women around here. I also think that ATL women don't necessarily get me. I'm a strange cat sometimes.
Now, let me give you the other part of the equation cuz if i don't then Trizzy and Nikki are gonna tell you that answer was bullshit. I am too anti social. I don't put myself out there. I cut people off too quickly. I am standoffish at times. I don't let people get to know me. I hate rejection so i don't approach people. I At least that was how it was before the whole blog thing.
Miss Ahmad askedi wanna know what happened with that other blogger..now you can email it to me or something but damn i'm still confused as all hell!
I said I wasn't gonna talk about this, but here goes the abbreviated version:
I had a blogger comment on my site. I went to visit her site and then we started chatting on IM. She was mad cool, but I got a strange vibe from her. I did my stiff arm thing to push her away, but eventually I came back around. We started talking on the phone. We talked and vibed for hours. She sent me a picture of "herself." Whenever we talked, I had a certain visual image of who I was talking to. Anyway, we talked about meeting, but every time there would be some excuse, which in retrospect makes a lot of sense to me now. Then one morning she sends me an email, entitled "Please Don't Hate Me" in which she confesses that the picture on her profile and the one she sent to me is actually not her, but her friend. Long story short, I was pretty embarrassed that I got suckered in, but everything happens for a reason, right? And she fooled everybody, so I feel better knowing that I wasn't the only one. I was jaded, but only until I got home that evening and talked to Trizzy. I realize that if I didn't go through that drama, I never would have met her and experience what I am experiencing with her.
1969 asked...what is your favorite post so far? You know, the one where you said, Damn I'm a decent writer!
The first one was The 10 Strip Club Commandments. Nobody was reading back then, but I think I killed with that post. Then it was So You Think You Can Stalk, which for some reason I forgot to put under my favorite posts. And thirdly, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised. I like my satirical posts the best.What do you see as the biggest problem facing our Country?
Can I give 3? Healthcare for the poor, the drug epidemic, and education.Are you a risk taker or more conservative?
I'm definitely conservative. For example, I stay in jobs I don't like rather than taking a risk on my passions, which would be writing or a job in the music industry.You have five thousand dollars fall into your lap...what do you do with it?
At this point I would probably spend a G, and save the rest.
Thee Modern Isis asked...Are you on your New York shit?
It's like NY been soft, ever since Snoop came in and smashed the buildings. I miss NY rap. They don't have the same swagger that they used to. And when I see that Chicken Noodle Soup video, its like what the fuck happened to NY?Inside Peanut Butter, outside jelly? Toast on the seats?
I see you heard the song now. LOL. That down south shit is crazy...but I love that they are doing it their way. Check for my new single called "My Twinkies" My Caddy is...Gold on the outside, with a creamy white filling. Rolling on 20's and I got the beats drilling.If they made you CEO of Defjam.. who would you get rid of, who would you hire or bring back?
Memphis Bleek would be outta there in a second. This dude been trying to make a hit since 95. He be rapping loud and saying nothing. I don't know what Jigga sees in this cat. He has no skills to me. And as far as bringing somebody back? I would love to hear another Jay-Z album.If you could pay someone in your past a visit.. who would it be and why?
I would want to visit my father just because he died right when we were reconnecting. I'd like to pick his brain about some things.If you were given the interview of a lifetime.. you got to interview Jesus before Barbara Walters could.. what 5 questions would you ask?
1. What is heaven like?
2. How do you feel about Catholicism?
3. Do you actually hear our prayers?
4. What is the biggest misconception that so called religious people have?
5. Can I get the hookup on the eternal life?love or prosperity?
without a doubt, love.
Sangindiva asked...What would you do to get me to sing you a love song...and MEAN it for real? :)
I'm not sure that I would do anything but be myself. I think if I am myself and we connect on a spiritual level, then that would inspire the song. I would want my woman to be in love with me, not the things I do for her. Does that make sense?
Hypothetically Speaking askedIf I were your room mate what would I say your most disgusting habit is?
Okay, I could never have a roommate because I am way too antisocial for that. But if I did, then they would probably have a problem with my kitchen cleaning. I leave dishes in the sink for too long and when I finally get around to them, its pretty nasty.What would YOU say your most digusting habit is?
I would agree with that one. This one time I went to put the dishes in the dishwasher and there were maggots on my plates. I threw them out and started over.Have you ever had your fortune told? If you did - has any of it happened yet?
Never had my fortune told. I dont wanna know whats going to happen next... unless I can change the future.
NSane Lee Sane asked...I wanna know what Miss Ahmad wants to know, you can email me as well...
I reluctantly answered her and KZ about that situation.Also, how did you become so pro black? What books have you read pertaining to the struggle?
I think it was really a combination of my moms, my rap music and my reading that made me so pro Black. The Autobiography of Malcolm X and "Soul on Ice" really changed my mindstate. I then started reading and studying Black history and became offended at the injustice. Now that I am in my 30's, I have tempered this a little and I look at what we are doing to ourselves rather than what is being done to us.How many women have you "bagged"?Who was the best?Why?
I'll let DMX answer this one for me....
There was Brenda, LaTisha, Linda, Felicia (okay)/Dawn, LeShaun, Ines, and Alicia (ooh)/Teresa, Monica, Sharron, Nicki (uh-huh)/Lisa, Veronica, Karen, Vicky (damn)/Cookies, well I met her in a ice cream parlor (aight?)/Tonya, Diane, Lori and Carla (okay)/Marina (uhh) Selena (uhh) Katrina (uhh) Sabrina (uhh)/About three Kim's (WHAT?)

Tawana, and Wanda (WHAT?)/were all treated fairly but yet and still/bitches is on some other shit now that I'm fuckin wit Dru Hill
I'm just kidding I don't even do it like that. You are talking to Mr. Monogamy. I stay in a long term relationship. I would say 14-17. Is that low for a man?
The best for me...would have to say the girl I used to live with cuz we just vibed that way. Pretty much nothing was off limits and she had multiple orgasms.Have you ever used any drugs other than weed?
I unintentionally used cocaine. We were smoking with these chicks Armstrong State college in Savannah. They laced the blunt and I was the only one who didnt realize it. My high was much different and when I asked about it, they told me that they dipped the blunt in nyquil. I didnt find out until 2 years later what really happened. I used to want to try ecstacy when Senita and Marcia used to roll at my apartment and start touching each other. But my father's history with drugs always stopped me from further experimenting.
Fallen Angel asked...1. it's your last day of work, what does the first sentence of your resignation letter say to your boss?
If I'm trying to keep it real it says, I ran this, but I wasn't appreciated so I have found a new job. If I'm trying to keep the relationship open, it will say. Thank you for the opportunity to develop my skills...2. your secret boo calls you on the cell and tells you that she's taking you away for a week, but you can only bring three things. what do you bring?
A big ass box of condoms
Clothes3. what would you title your autobiography?
It's not very imaginative, but I would call it "It Was Written" and I would format like the Bible. You know with Book, Chapter and Verse.
Tenacious didnt ask a question, but I want to ask her one...
How come you respond to my comments to your blog in my comments? I keep forgetting to ask you that. LOL
Diva (in Demand) asked...How do you feel about blind dates?
I don't really date that much. I like to get to know somebody before I go out with them. So, a few phone convos are necessary before I go out in public with someone. You never know if the person is crazy until you talk to them.Would you ever move to another state and if so what is your ideal place to live?
I would move in the future. I have 3 places I would like to move to. 1. VA/DC/MD cuz for some reason the mid atlantic women like me... a whole lot. That may increase my matrimony potential. 2. Chicago. I only been there twice, but I fell in love with that city. 3. New York. I don't wanna live there long term, but I have a idealistic idea of living in the big city.Can you remember a time when you were most afraid of something?
When I was a teenager, I was afraid of dying. I had an unhealthy obsession with death and I thought I was gonna die young. I used to be shook about it because I didnt know what would happen after.
Phoenix asked...If you were given a book deal - what would the title of your book be?
The Fourth Dimension...about my current situation. The working title for my book about my father is "Remembrance"If you knew that the famous person of your dreams were going to die and you had a chance to speak with them before that event - what would you ask them?
I don't really care about famous people, so let me answer this from a different perspective. I would want to maybe interview them and write about it. It's too late now, but I would want to hear all about Ossie Davis and Gordon Parks life experience. They just seemed so dignified and I know their stories would be poignant and revealing and mean something to me.
JennayNay asked...What 90's sit-com could have been centered around your life?
I envision myself as Seinfeld with a whole cast of crazy characters around me and just reacting to them. I'm a regular guy like him that gets involved in some unbeleivable situations.If you had a movie made about your life, what ONE album would serve as the sound track?
I like the idea of a high concept album like that but I dont think one exists about me. I would have to do the album myself. If I am forced to answer, I would go with Midnight Maruaders by A Tribe Called Quest. Even though it aint all about me, it kinda reflects my sensibilities and the album is one of my favorites.What was your most hated job?
I only did it for a week, but I had a job as a door to door salesperson. I hate selling and I didn't like bothering people at home. That job sucked. I went to training and then I quit after the 2nd day on the job.Mocha asked...a long time ago about lyrics from a song that best describe me...And I couldn't answer...
So, this is what I want someone to feel about me.
India.Arie "The Truth"
Cause he is the truth/Said he is so real/And I love the way that he makes me feel/And if I am a reflection of him then I must be fly /cause his light it shines so bright /I wouldn't lie I remember the very first day I saw him/I found myself immdiately intrigued by him/Its almost like I knew this man from another life/Like back then maybe I was his husband and maybe he was my wife/And even the things I don't like about him are fine with me /Because its not hard for me to understand him because his so much like me/And its truly my pleasure to share his company/And I know that its GOD's gift to breathe/yeah he breathes
Damn, I answered them all. That was harder than I expected. You guys really stepped up and asked some challenging questions. Thank you for helping me out and I hope you found out more information about me than you would ever want to know.
