Lenny who?
pickett? white? wilkins? hmmm. the only other lenny I can think of is less of a great one than D'angelo. but I think this is a pointless post. He won't answer it. It just seems kinda like a post to get d to reply. good luck.

22499, How could you leave out......
Posted by guest, Mon Jul-31-00 07:57 PM
How could you leave out Terence Trent D'Arby, one of the greaest singer/songwriters that's still making music today. I'd love to hear some Branford Marsallis and Wynton marsallis on his next record, they would really help the songs to sound more full. Oh, by the way, I have heard 4 tracks off of TTD new record "The Soarl Return of terence trent D'Arby", and let me tell you, the man is back. Nothing will ever beat his first record, but if you loved "Introducing the Hardline" and "Symphony or Damn" you'll love this one. It's more soul than rock, from the songs I've heard(unlike Vibrator, his last record). Support D, a true artist, but please give props to TTD who has been doing his thing since 1987, and buy his next record when it comes out, SUPPORT REAL ARTISTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
22500, seriously doubt it.

sometimes i wonder why he's a okayartist, he hardly ever interacts. don't get me wrong, i do love his music. but,....never mind.


cold water on this damn hot summer: its a good thing

I am wholeheartedly, completely, totally....and anymore words that mean that....in love with my man. We sometimes trip on how it all came about and how soon things happened, but the one thing that WE KNOW is that we truly love each other.
Because of the distance....we only have the devotion, unceasing thoughts, prayers, loyalty, and trust...the true unadulterated love of each other to go by. This is the real essence of a relationship. He is my inspiration for the day.... He is my natural high . Oh yes, I long to touch him beyond other things, but we hold on to each other, knowing that one day God will allow us to be together for good.-LoveJones

I don't know what it has to do with backpacks all the time, but you can't post something directly towards an okayartist. they won't respond. Shit if they did, then everybody would be writing posts to artists and there would be no interaction between okayplayers. This ain't no fan club. Yes we are fans, but we can't expect busy-ass musicians to quit what they're doing and get on a computer and answer every question their fans want to know. I mean, as good of a job okayartists do(esp. ?love) at being normal real approachable people to us and try to be fam, they are famous people. There are a lot of people and things that want their time. Don't ask me why but that's the way it is. And no one ever really bitches about it unless it's d'angelo not responding. Yall are never gonna get wit that cat anyway, so just download your little picture, print that shit out, close your eyes and let your fingers do the walkin. When was the last time I heard people bitchin about black thought not responding? what, he ain't cute enough or something?
if an artist responds, that's cool. if they don't, don't hate this site because where else would you even have a fraction of a chance to talk music wit ?uest or have Common tell you what he thought about the different legs of his tour? that's what i thought. in the words of EPMD "you gots ta chill"

"I don't know what it has to do with backpacks all the time, but you can't post something directly towards an okayartist. they won't respond."

I've seen people say that periodically.

ACTUALLY, the first post I ever put up in Artist was directed to some of the Soultronics and Quest directly replied. It's the exception though, and not the rule.

?uest can post "BOO" and get like a View All in 30 seconds. . .many people say that that's not the reason they are here, and it's not the reason I'm here anymore, although initially it was the excitement of feeling like interacting with these heads. I'll be honest, I still dig it when any one of them comes on because they don't have to. I may not know of what I speak but I get the feeling that even if D' wasn't busy, he would post few and very far between, if at all - he doesn't strike me as an Internet type. Too private, and I can't say I blame him.

for one okayartist. Y'all don't use your real names and neither does he. (like Tavis Smiley)

2. Everyone's personality is different. To answer the question about why D is an okayartist when he hardly interacts, we don't require that you post, just that you give more than you'd give a "normal" site. (Like allowing us to put up his Star Wars convo or him coming on and asking what his next song should be.)

From what I hear....they sucked.

No one except ?uestlove LIKES carrying a laptop on tour. You have to be a real nerd to want to carry an extra heavy ass bag.

Anyway, I'mma let the man get off tour. When and if we chat, I want it to be the real person and set up guidelines. Not those free for all "I LUV YOU D" chats where sometimes the artist ain't nowhere around.

i'm not trying to
>dis brotherman, but...nevermind.
>its all good, i better stop
>with this.

Okay, it's all good.

Nevermind.

You'd better stop. :-)

I'm just saying....everything ain't what it seems and just like people think "D did a chat with launch.com", I bet he was the last one to know he was even doing it. We hate the bureaucracy of setting ish up with people's staff. If it can't come from the horse's mouth, or with the approval of the horse's mouth, then get that shit outta here.

But, if it would make people feel better, we'll hire someone just to make D posts to create a comfortable illusion for people who don't like the fact that not everyone is comfortable with posting.

Please don't attach a tone to my post. Everything is said with a very smiley face. Just trying to explain some things I think some people might not understand.

that's why i said nevermind, because i didn't want it to come off the wrong way. people are very quick to think something is negatively said on these boards, when i really wasn't trying to be. i was hoping we could get alittle more interaction that all. i was using the chat night on launch.com as a example, not being bitchy.

i guess i'll be getting cursed out threads.lol

I didn't think you were, which is why I put the note about *not reading tone* into my e-mail, either. I didn't want you to think I was coming at you...just explaining.

>i was hoping we could
>get alittle more interaction that

Understood. And when I replied I was just saying that that chat shit is "typical" and half the time, it don't even be the damn artist. People's questions don't get thru, the artist doesn't want to do it. I refuse to force someone to participate or to do some wack shit. That's the easiest way to get them not to want to do shit.

This is D's HOME. He can be quiet and watch TV or he can run naked through the living room. It's his choice. He VISITED launch.com and had to be polite.

We could do have someone make fake D posts everyday and we'd have every woman in a training bra hitting up the site and be popular like ebay. But...that's not his personality to post everyday, and as corny as it sounds, I'd rather keep it real.

>i guess i'll be getting cursed
>out threads.lol

Not from me. And if you do from anyone else, e-mail me and I'll delete them.

Posted by TotalRequestloveLive, Thu Aug-03-00 05:49 PM
Okay, I'ma type this really slow so everyone finally understands. Okayartists do not need to post. I do feel they have an obligation to interact with us, but it does not have to be through the boards. The boards are they most time consuming portion of okayplayer, and I bet D' doesn't have a lot to free time 'waste' on here. He is however touring, getting into the studio, and working on the diary. You want him to post too? I've never heard y'all complain to ?uest to get off the boards and into the studio, so why should it be the other way around away for D'?

Don't get me wrong I really wish he would post too, and maybe he is (c)ang, but y'all can't ruin it and expect him back especially 100%.

This post wasn't targeted at anyone person, so don't get pissed. (((y'all doesn't = you)))I just want people to understand that okayplayer is bigger that the boards. D' is still offering more than the average artist, don't take that for granted.

Its bigger than...
