Music, Media & Activism...

KENNA, lupe, simon issacs and two others folks... interesting mix.  he is talking about a global consciousness in his fans...there is a global consciousness in his fan because 1. folks here have people outside of the country...2. from listening to his lyrics they just became aware (or were already aware i hope....)...that was his point in making the songs about Haiti and Pakistan....
*he just corrected himself for saying 'man' with reference to human beings....

I'm aroused....sorry....tmi

transition space....

surprisingly humorous....
Well at this point we don't know her name...
but the 'daughter of africa' who is moderating the massive panel changes is hilarious. i don't think she realizes that her mike stays on in between we hear her say things like... I think I have said hi to all of the panelist...uhmm and okay people not too many hand shakes. Its laugh out funny. and uhm I want her suit...white tuz jacket with gold buttons, slim pumps..yum!
 mrs. clinton looked great, no plastic hair clip scandal today...look it up yourself..
who knew melinda gates was a hotty...and rich...i'd do it..sorry mom.
and we're back...

She just asked for a big stick next time...Priceless...

and drumroll.....

her name is  Zeinab Badawi....

"Every woman, every child"

We're all here, ready and waiting. This is my first session and I'm super nervous. My brain is all twisted from finding out that President John Straussburger, the president emeritus of Ursinus College, A.K.A 'the one that mattered' passed this morning. So within the context of loosing a man that has done so much for the world of education and more importantly for a small group of african american students on a tiny college in the middle of nowhere, a man that 'just got it' AND then did something about it...I sit here waiting to see what the United Nations secretary general, Ban Ki-Moon, have to say about the MDL's and the state of women and children around the world.

I have that Jasmine song in my head.....
I gottta dream big...cuz when it happens it's gone have real quick....
well it doesn's have the same oomph without the pertinent.

aight. we're "taking our seats"

I shall return...

I made what?

fidigityboredmess...or at least that's how it started....

ugh on today.
didn't want to sit still and work...
my first day back from my allergical reaction to antibiotics
dam things out to kill me
who knew the world would go on without me??
(why am i surprised by that?)
Anyway, I thought the massive mess of a desk could explain my mental state better than words.

then i got a call.
my internship supervisor at BREAD knew about my blog and invited me to live blog the UN summit for them..
what a way to end the day...
scared shitless and ready to run.
feels good.

May I overshare? I met someone. Ugh, the cliche is kil-lin me. So yeah, in jamaica, I clicked with this dark dude with a heart and a mind and beautiful hands (my thing...sue me).  Somebody is singing to me when I wake up and when I drift off to sleep with a frustrated smile on my face - ha, will I ever do anything the easy way? Never, nah nah sur. Hey you know cautious careful bex? I put her in a box and fedex'd her to storage. You think I'ma crash and burn?? Naw baby this is happening.
