Version 2.0

Culture, healing, politics and bullshit - Not necessarily in that order

The general, socio-political and very personal rantings and ravings of a hip hop head from the hood hustling for change... Of himself.

You all know me and are aware that I am unable to remain silent. At times to be silent is to lie. For silence can be interpreted as acquiescence.

Have A LadyLee New Year!!!

I thought I had the capacity to blog with regularity, and then...

I didn't.

Same stuff, too much to do and not enough time. I thought I would type something here, not because it's the last day of the year, it's just that I wanted to express something. I still don't know what that something is. Yet.

Looking back at the past 12 months, I can say that for the most part I put my head down and worked on relocating by building up some moolah, which I did. That's it. Nothing else of major interest has come up. The fact that I got sick and shortened my lifespan wasn't really that major. It's just a reflection of poor habits.

I go off and on with my vegetarianism, and I like alcohol. Lots of it. So I get what I deserve. No problem with that.

I do want to give a special X-Clan type, vaaaaaanglorious shout out to someone that cared and looked out for me this year. From check-ins, keeping me in prayer to actually sending me herbs, I want to thank my BlogSister The Original Oldgirl LadyLee for just being you.


I know that you constantly keep me in prayer and give a damn about my health and well being. You have gone above and beyond the call of duty for lil ol' me, and I have no words on how that makes me feel going through my transition.

I have no clue what the new year brings... I have no clue what condition I'll be in and where I'll convalesce... I do know that the bayou is what I like as far as my surroundings and this is a great place to rest, recover and live as well. There are of course more folk than just Lee in my life that care and are helping me heal, I just wanted to single out the Oldgirl for just doing what she do.

I'm just thankful that I got people, few as they are...

Other than that, there's a local radio personality that said something the other day about entering the new year:

Spend the first six months of the new year minding your own business, the other six months staying out of others...

Nuff said.

X-Clan is taking it back to when I still like hip-hop music!

You were vague enough about your mortal well being that I had not a clue until later in the year. Not that it did not make me wonder but I did not want to intrude.

It is good that the Lady did see after you... I have some blog friends who do the same for my brain-damaged (aw come on, let's call a damn spade a spade for once!), and I think that there may be a chance for me to have found a partner in Nebraska here in Omaha.

The internet is what you make it... you have to let it be for you what you are to it. You have always come across as an authentic cat and the whole OTR thing with your wife was kung-fu mega similiar to an adventure I went on... and I was hoping that you guys would get the result that you went into the journey with.

And that is another thing that I 'assumed' went well. No answer needed.

Take care and Happy New Year, Hassan!!

*hard lip quiver, fat tear drip*


*crying uncontrollably and reaching for my Obama Chuuuch fan*

You've had to show an Oldgirl much tough love over the years, with many a virtual pimp slap... And that is fine by me... It's made me a better me. I've learned from you to sit down and critically assess myself... and have the courage to make the necessary painful changes.

*more uncontrollable crying and passing out on the pavement*
