Sylvester-One Night Only

  Sylvester (James), the Original Queen of Disco, has been a great influence in my musical life. As I've learned about him and I've indulged myself into his music, I am thankful that, Sylvester was a pioneer in the music industry that lived, loved, and was free!!!
  I happened to come across a cover of "the Dreamgirls" hit "One Night Only" cover that he's performed. The writers Henry D Krieger and Tom Eyen prepared these lyrics and have allowed many artists to add this to their repertoire. I love Sylvester's interpretation of this hit. Get into it below. Love ya,

Childhood, Friendships, and Changes

Names have been changed to protect identity in this entry
   Recently, I got news that a childhood friend of mine, Arthur, got married.  I am very happy for him and I'm glad for him finding a young lady that will be with him for better or worse and all that good stuff.
  Arthur and I were the best of friends in our childhood and going on in our teen years, but somewhere it changed once we reached middle school.  I guess it was the fact that we were both hitting puberty and he was into sports and I was a geek and I loved music and church. Now granted at that time we both dated the ladies. Also there were rumors of me being Gay.
  He and I tried to remain friends however, Arthur changed and started hanging around the main people that were those taunting and bullying me.  I remember inviting him to a couple of my birthday cookouts, but he didn't show up and we just grew apart.
  I always felt that because I was suspected of being Gay and partly coming out in high school, that ended our friendship. I wasn't upset about it though.  Throughout my childhood and teenage years, even adulthood, I've gained and lost friends because I've chosen to get the better things in life and also live my truth.
  It is amazing that how people that start out with you in childhood change when you don't fit a norm that society has placed on you for your gender.  As we've emerged into adulthood, Arthur and I have talked and chatted on occasion and talked about what's going on in our lives and how we've met love, lost love, graduated from college and moved to different places.  I guess that's life sometimes. However, I don't fret over a dead friendship.  That gives room for bigger and better friendships to blossom with others.

Monday Thoughts: GO FOR YOUR DREAMS!!!!

  It's another Monday. Another day going into the "dungeon" aka the workplace. As I write this piece, I am preparing myself for the work week. I am also preparing myself for my dreams that lie ahead.  Being in the work force for the last ten years and working for other people has come with great benefits, but one must go for their dreams and do something that they love.
  Going for your dreams may cause you to sacrifice. It may also cause you to cut some ties, but never the less, going for your dreams have been God ordained for you life. Your dream is what God has been giving to you accomplish. It is not just a dream, but it is your mission. It is your call.
  Go get your dreams and do the thing now!!!! Don't waste another minute.
  Just a quick Monday Thought,

The Wiz: I'm a Mean Ole Lion #TBT

  Does anybody remember "The Wiz"  starring Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Ted Ross, Nipsey Russell, Lena Horne, Richard Pryor, Mabel King and many more?
  Well many of you may recognize that it was a broadway play featuring Stephanie Mills, Theresa Merritt, as well as Ted Ross in the original broadway cast. It was adapted for the screen by Quincy Jones, Ashford & Simpson, Joel Schumacher, and Luther Vandross from the Frank L. Baum story series "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz."  This adaptation was unique in that it featured an all African American cast.
  I've had the pleasure of seeing this live in my youth with Peabo Bryson as "The Wiz," CeCe Peniston as "Glinda the Good," and Tasha Scott as "Dorothy." My favorite memory of the live show is Grace Jones as "Evilene."
  One of my favorite scenes would have to be with the Lion's introduction. Although he deemed himself without courage, he did muster the courage to disco his mane to the then trio of  Dorothy, Tinman, and Scarecrow that "I'm a Mean Ole Lion."  He gave me straight up drag's performance with those platform shoes and that man that was curled for the GAWDS!!!!
  Enjoy Ted Ross as "The Lion," in the "Wiz."
