Now she's more sophisticated, highly edu-ma-cated/ not at all over-rated, I think I need a prayer/ to get in her book and it looks rather dry/ I guess a twinkle in her eye is just a twinkle in her eye/ Although she's crazy steppin, I'll try to stop her stride/ Cause I won't have no more of this passin me by/
I'm having me a Pharcyde appreciatiation moment. When Pharcyde came out it was so siginificant for me. Here were these guys the my friend Nikia and I thought of as "fresh boys". They mighta slanged a little greenery, they were nappies, they hung out on the steps at Cal's campus, and they luved hip hop and the girls who lived hip-hop. Pharcyde showed me that there were boys that there were boys available that weren't necessarily thug's.
Not only does the Pharcyde represent a turning point in my perception of Black Men but it also represents a playfulness in hip hop that I seriously miss. You play their album and you feel like you are in the room with your friends. Some founky beats, some stories, and some folks not taking themselves so seriously so as to stifle their creativity.
Mac Jay Ask and ye shall recieve. E-40 gets punked. Basically there is the police, white woman aspect to dynamic to this skit. Me having the smart mouth that I have. You know I am going to have a problem with it.

Mini crab cakes.

Veggie lasagna. Ginger lemonade.
Crazy spicey sausages and Wheat english muffins. Organic coffee. No wonder the line was out the door.
I over heard one of the employees say that the reason why Trader Joes is EVEN at Union Sqaure is because NYU asked them to come. And the are looking for another location where the rent isn't astronomical.
Good Luck in Millionaire city where you give your first born, a lung and an artery for a down payment on a condo!
I saw Star of star and buckwild in the back of a recent Oldsmobile type car while I was struggling with my packages on the way to the train. I know I must have been a sight. Sh*t, come hell or high water, I was getting those groceries to my kitchen!

What do you think of kids getting sex education through text messages?
WHY was there NO coverage of Sharpe James dropping out of the race against Corey Booker.
Newark hasn't always seemed a place worth fighting for. Sharpe James's political career began here in 1970, three years after the riots that (besides the airport, and Philip Roth) are what the city has been best known for. And though Newark has recently shown signs of revitalization -- the new arts center downtown has become a destination -- it's consistently ranked among the worst places to raise a child in America. James, who grew up in Newark, the son of a single mother who owned a restaurant, has tried to make their respective upbringings an issue, painting the contest in terms of race and authenticity. "You have to learn to be an African-American," he's said about Booker. "And we don't have time to train you."
"There is an abundant supply of individuals possessing the talent, intelligence and creativity to serve in public office without the necessity of one person occupying dual elected office," James wrote.
James has been a state senator since 1999, so it is surprising that he now considers holding dual offices a problem, said David Rebovich, a political analyst at Rider University.
