Karrine Steffans Does Not Know Her History

In my eyes, there is nothing worse than not understanding the situations involved in your own personal history. I’m not talking about strange trivia specifics like the birthdate of Sir Menelik or the Malcolm X’s favorite meal. I’m referring to general facts that are there to help you understand how things came to be. […]

    Maybe You Need To Have Sex and Move On With Your Life – Plain Truth 95

Maybe You Need To Have Sex and Move On With Your Life – Plain Truth 95

So, my homeboy was in a Facebook group explaining his issues with dating (and what not).It isn’t that fact that he isn’t handsome because he could probably pull 89% of the women out there (married, single, and even lesbian).

Her topic dealt with the idea of us all becoming “feminists”. Whether or not I agree with (or find it necessary) “everyone becoming a […]

MTV Video Music Awards – Fun, Flash, and Fuckery

I don’t know why I do this to myself. Wait, I lied: I do it for you all. I do it for the “fans” that I imagine I have. I also do it for the sake of doing it. This pays no money. Most people don’t pay me any mind. But for those that […]

When Your Ex Still Has Feelings – Plain Truth 89

 

 

This song by The Dream is quite the example of essential listening. It is about breaking up. Actually, it is the act of “making sense of breaking up”. It is these type of situations that become heavily complicated. Too many times, we try to make it work for the sake of “making it work”.

And […]

Don’t Take His Love for Porn Personal – Plain Truth 85

Warning: what I am going to talk about isn’t for the prude or highly religious. It is, however, for the sexually secure, the carnal, and those that want to understand their own sexuality. This is your warning.

Porn Star was a pretty good song coming from a pretty good album. T.I. wanted to bring the […]
