Look Ma! Barbie Has Booty!

Thanks to Saucy Dame, I think I found a new future hobby -- collecting booty babes statues.

Spencer Davis is a toy developer/artist based in Los Angeles who -- inspired by adult publications such as Black Tail magazine, Big Butt magazine and others -- started designing "Booty Babe" figurines in 1998.

"Booty Babe is generally a woman with curves," Spencer explains on his website. "Waist-to-hip ratio is usually breath-taking. She feels sexy and her self-confidence makes her glow. She's not afraid to wear skin-tight outfits -- and we love her for it. She's sweet and sexy, stylish and smart; and her body language states, 'This is who I am, and I LOVE being me.'"
His collection of full-bodied babe statues are in high demand and have been showcased in art galleries and toy conventions all over the world.

Ahh yes, Booty Babes. You gotta love it!

King of the Hill?

I had one of those crazy dreams last night.

I dreamt that I was the lead crooner for the now defunct(?) R&B group Dru Hill.
And the shocking part was . . . I was singing a love ballad on the doorstep of blog vixen Saucy Dame's house.

For the record, I can't sing . . . at all.

As I was gyrating my hips and doing the two-step, I apparently was warbling a love song. The lyrics went:

Last night we were making love without a doubt/
Our bodies were in motion let's scream and shout/
Don't let go 'cause I'm about to explode/
*[Let get busy on the dance flo' . . ./]

(* -- Radio Edit)

And then I woke up.

Whaddu think? That's a hit record, right? I better call Jermaine Dupri.

But don't be alarmed, it wasn't a dream fantasy of mines to become a R&B singer.

You see, on Saturday, I went music shopping and I noticed that there was a new Dru Hill "Greatest Hits" CD on the shelf. I said to myself, "Whose bright idea was it to release this crap?" And I know that part of the dream was from me reading over a million times Saucy Dame's hilarious post, Laughing at the Glass. If you haven't read it, please do -- it's a blogsphere classic.

So don't worry, I won't be wearing a blond wig and crooning the "Thong Song" anytime soon.

But a brother can dream, right?


Thank You, Sista Rosa

Thank you Miss Rosa, you are the spark/
You started our freedom movement/
Thank you Sister Rosa Parks/
Thank you Miss Rosa you are the spark/
You started our freedom movement/
Thank you Sister Rosa Parks . . .

-- The Neville Brothers, "Sister Rosa"

Can we please have a moment of silence . . .

For a true icon of the Civil Rights Movement . . .

Rosa Parks (1913-2005)

Rosa Parks died on Oct. 26 of natural causes at the age of 92. All in all, she lived a very purposeful life, most notably igniting the Civil Rights Movement with her noble stance of refusing to give up a seat to a White man on a city bus in Montgomery, Ala., in 1955.

Two memorials were held over the weekend: Saturday at Rosa's former church in Montgomery, Ala. and on Sunday at the Lincoln Memorial building in Washington, D.C., where her body will lie in state until Monday.

Her soul will be laid to rest on Wednesday in Detroit.

No matter what doubts you may have about Rosa's place in history, in the end, she was a true soul survivor. She was a quiet, yet, vigil soldier in "The Struggle."

Rosa's death is a reminder of how far we've come since the days of the civil rights movement and the long work ahead on improving race relations in America.

Racism is still alive and well and stronger than ever. Trust me, I experience racism almost everyday at my job. Racism is never ever going to go away. But we can work on improving our tolerance for one another -- through education and understanding.

So, I'm going to leave you with blogger Jay Smooth's Rosa Parks tribute song.

Take time out to give thanks to Rosa Parks -- whether you want to or not.

Love and peace, my brothers and sisters.


Monday Madness: 15 iTunes Hits

I haven't done this in awhile, so I figured I bring back. I just simply went to the "Party Shuffle," hit "Refresh" and tah-dah! What you're looking at are the top 15 randomly selected joints out of 600 songs that are stored in my iTunes.

Moving along . . .

I have been in a jazzy mood lately. So below are two of my favortie jazz CDs that are currently getting major spins in my ipod nano.

For the record: Everything is fine with my iPod nano. No shattered screens or scratches. I'm happy with it. But yes, Apple needs to release cases for their iPods. They are too easily scratch-proned and hard to clean.

My two favorite jazz CDs:

Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane -- At Carnegie Hall
(Blue Note Records)

Two geniuses performing on stage together -- LIVE. This now is truly a jazz collection to savor. To listen to a few selections from the disc, click HERE.

Soulive -- Breakout
(Concord Records)

This group has never released a bad record. Their muscular grooves, jazzy musical forms and guest vocalists make this a must-have. Corey Glover (of Living Colour, the '80s rock band), Chaka Khan and others appear on the disc. If you're looking for some soulful jazz, break out a few dollars and cop this disc. For more info on Soulive, click THIS.
