SoapBox Buzz | Why Scrooge got a gun? #ChristmasinJuly

July 5, 2015

Soapbox Buzz – Something had me on my soapbox when strolling through Atlanta’s Woodruff Arts Center.  Always excited to buzz through on my way to the station when taking the tourist approach to the city.  Love being in the midst of the arts and theatre.  At first glance of holiday production Scrooge, my first thought was OMG it’s almost Christmas — Christmas in July!

Immediately after 4th of July, every heart, mind, and wallet turns to Christmas. Every other holiday in between is just a prelude.  Long story short, my next thought — why Scrooge got a gun? Further more, what the ??? is the brother holding.  It took me all but a minute to ponder — what’s wrong with this picture??

Buzzing Opinion | Work and Life Won’t Balance – How to make the best of your #Next48hours

April 29, 2015

Buzzing Opinion — Who started us on this journey to balance work and life? They had to know there’s no such thing.  You either work or you live.  Work is death, dying a little everyday — unless you love working or love your work.  If not, it doesn’t balance with life at all.  Work dominates eight or more hours of your day — for pay.  Life cost and cost more than what you make when you work.

Life dominates your day too.  Sometimes hours of work and life clash or overlap.  Eight hours to work. Eight hours to live. Eight hours to sleep.  Which one do we sacrifice first? Getting to and from work borrows from life and sleep.  Working overtime borrows from life and sleep.  Next thing you know you’re not living or sleeping at all. Life becomes regulated to weekends, holidays, and vacation — if taken.  Did somebody say balance?

We start banking hours, hoping to cash them in, disguised as balance.  Forty-eight hours starting Friday at 5 pm. Another forty in the summer or dispersed throughout the year as extended weekends. Amazing the respite achieved from a stolen Monday or Friday when enjoying long weekends.

I’m losing sleep now. Blogging early morning, in the quiet of the day, in order to make room for an afternoon meeting. Work and life won’t balance. The sooner we stop chasing what doesn’t exist, the sooner we can stop being mad over nothing dreaming about yesterday aka M.O.N.D.A.Y.

It’s coming every week — Monday. Face it and work with love.  Love what you do and the life you live.  Loving the work we do conquers any resentment for the life we don’t get to live while we work.  Make the most of your #Next48hours aka weekend or which ever two days your pursuit of work life balance provides.

Give living the same sense of urgency given to work.  Set your alarm. Rest well. Enjoy every minute.  Live your life moments to the fullest as if they too will be evaluated and compensated — because they will.

Hair She Buzz | The Talk: Do you have to be so mediocre? We’re in trouble Olivia(s) and headed for #Scandal

April 12, 2015

Hair She Buzz — A best moment from Scandal begs the question, do you have to be so mediocre?”  “Brilliance in writing from Shonda Rhimes and Scandal crew.  One of many amazing hair raising thought provoking scenes from Joe Morton as Daddy Pope (Rowan Pope). But is it a question coming up too often today as women digress from progress fighting to stay relevant?

“You could have aimed for Chief of Staff or Secretary of State!” That moment light bulb went off for some and others were left in the dark — still dreaming of being first lady.  What? You mean a woman could aspire to be more? Doh!

Screenshot 2015-04-12 at 9.58.16 AM - Edited

As a mother, blogger, author, radio host, most of my days and nights are spent inspiring women (and men) to aspire for more. Set their bars for greatness.  Everyday, inbox filled with how to questions.  This clip from Scandal, will save me from repeating myself.

In every reply I’m going to post a link and await response. It will regularly rotate in my social streams, embedding itself in minds of followers.

Love watching light bulbs illuminate where there was once darkness.  For as long as I can stand, I’m going to play it for myself, until mediocre is no longer an option and it has become natural, indigenous to elevate every thought, wish, desire, accomplishment.

“You’ve gotten yourself in a bit of trouble Oliva(s). I’m here to fix it!”

Are you done with your mediocre moments? Light bulb illuminated? Are shall I play it again?

Truth be told, great moments like these have left Scandal as Olivia (Kerry Washington) fights to find her way back to center stage. Are you done with your own mediocre moments? Light bulb illuminated? Or shall I play it again?

the Clippings | Some of us don’t love Erica Campbell’s #‎iLuhGod‬ – Help 2.0

April 6, 2015

the Clippings — When old school wants to stay new school, it’s time to get schooled and I don’t mind playing teacher.  Don’t mind going against the grain to say I don’t like it — this new song from Erica Campbell.  No, trap gospel is not okay — for my playlist.  No shade no stones. In fact, not throwing anything.  Just returning what was served. 

What’s with the 1900 dialect or as some would say today’s ebonics? Would we feel different about the song had Campbell contributed her LUH to negro spirituals in such tongues as spoken by Zora Neale Hurston or Sojourner Truth? But no, she went straight trap — trap gospel? It’s ok to minister to the trap. However, with this song, did Erica Campbell move in?

If the saints are mad, then maybe she ought to rethink it lol

Ironically, the album is called Help 2.0 — help her!

the Clippings | What’s brewing with Starbucks #RaceTogether – Unlike our coffee, we don’t blend well?

March 20, 2015

The Clippings — What’s brewing at Starbucks? Can we #racetogether or nah?

Perhaps over the years of serving us coffee, Starbucks realizes, unlike our favorite beverages — we don’t blend well.  All that tension in service lines probably comes not just from needing coffee. Lack of courtesy to each other and watching us huddle in our segregated groups might be reason for Starbucks to ask — Can we #Racetogether or nah?

___________________

Hanging out with coffee drinkers of late, I’ve finally found the perfect beverage that takes me into Starbucks more and more — these few short months into my addiction.  A time or two, I’ have wondered about race and prejudice from my trips get a coffee buzz — here in the south.

As someone who blogs about media and behaviors derived from how media is consumed, I know when I am in and out of my comfort zone — #MediaApartheid.  Our consumption of media and coffee leaves a stain on our social interactions. Standing in line at Starbucks, I can tell their customers, for the most part, don’t consume what or how I consumed information. Can we #Racetogether or nah?

Instantly, I can tell from the startled white male, he might consume conservative content with his coffee. Or, the white female who can’t bring herself to become social, might love country music or watches daytime tv? Or the black female trying to blend her way through #corpnation might think we’re competing. And, never mind the brother who wants to be the only black person in the coffee shop. I just want my Mocha frappuccino with soy and whip and I’m out. Can we #Racetogether or nah?

Your coffee shop your turf. But what does your Starbucks say about you? Can we #Racetogether or nah?

Obviously we’re not blending well in such a shared space where everybody knows your name — it’s on your beverage — but what’s in your heart?  I’m Yalanda with an A — it’s on my cup! Can we #Racetogether or nah?

the Clippings | Buy Black — but not Jordans? I’m confused

December 22, 2014


Buy Black — but not Jordans? I’m confused???

legend-blue-11-jordans

Legend Blue 11 Jordans officially released December 20th.  Hopefully you were not in the stampede — and if you were — that’s your business — big business if you were selling them. But apparently, it’s nothing to bottom line of Black Business.

If rocking a new pair of Jordans this Christmas or posting your newly acquired haul on instagram — you already know — the ridicule cometh — depending on your income.  The poor have become the punchline when it comes the most famous wardrobe staple.  A product policed, available via life saving lottery — in another country this would be rice.

But I’m confused.  Folks say buy black — but not Jordans? If the shoe fits, being that its the number one wardrobe staple for a lineage of men and women – sports fans and the like — how come every black business — or business for that matter, doesn’t sell them.  Everybody still wants to be like Mike?  I’d like to be as rich — and living outside the trauma of having to shop via lottery.

Buy Black — but not Jordans? I’m confused. So what other products have Black Americans so graciously placed their name, genius, endorsement, signature or license? One friend, Dea Win, quickly added to my query the following:

FUBU
TYLER PERRY FILMS
KIMORA
RUSH CARDS
ROCAFELLA

My question back to her related to how upper class consumers avoided these labels as they were often associated and ridiculed as products highly consumed by the poor or knocked off for the poorer.

Why are we always criticizing shopping habits of the poor — when habits, especially bad habits, create the most wealth in America.

Buy Black – based on what habits? What solutions? What is the wealth stream besides wardrobe staples which could really facilitate economic development? Or should we just let it be?

Sneaker releases are what they are — for the sports fan who desires the most popular show known to man.

At least we aren’t being policed and lottery’d out for food — yet.
