13397593, I made the wake up list...

**praise dances**

I’m seriously scared of going to sleep and I can’t get in to see my doctor until September.

I hope okp doesn’t die...

13397630, My mom just told me over Duo that it looks like I don't comb my hair!
Posted by SuiteLady, Wed Aug-05-20 05:34 PM
I mean granted - it is frizzy as hell, but damn. I comb my hair twice a day in fact. Once a night when I am wrapping it and once in the morning when I am combing the wrap out. She said I'd be better off wearing two ponytails than wearing my hair like this and that wrapping is for people who have relaxers.

and shoot the fair one. lol

My legend precedes me, the way lightening precedes thunder.


13397633, seems like this year im feeling my age more than usual
Posted by mista k5, Wed Aug-05-20 05:49 PM
i think in many ways ive always felt young but the past month ive really been noticing/realizing im more of an og now lol

nephew just texted me and my brother that hes in town so it would be cool to meet up. i instantly felt some anxiety on how to respond and not seem like the lame uncle lol

13397671, I've never understood why The Roots fell under "conscious rap" category.
Posted by FLUIDJ, Thu Aug-06-20 07:03 AM
I mean...I do from an image & origination standpoint (it was the90's)...but at the same time...the content of most of their music doesn't really scream "conscious"...
13397678, It’s because they didn’t fit in the other boxes
Posted by legsdiamond, Thu Aug-06-20 07:59 AM
and they were a live act.

But I think it really comes down to the type of fans they attracted. If you went to a Roots show you were going to see backpacks, head wraps, dreads and naturals.

13397675, We hired a new VP.
Posted by legsdiamond, Thu Aug-06-20 07:53 AM
- Going to be interesting seeing what direction he takes the company in... hopefully it’s a good fit. Time to dust off the resume and update my portfolio just in case.

- We are refinancing the house to a 10 year mortgage. Higher mortgage bill but we are saving 40k in interest.

- Kids aren’t going to daycare. It’s going to be a bit stressful for my wife but we can’t take that risk right now. Our daughter turns 5 in September and we were going to try and get her tested so she could start kindergarten this year but covid threw a wrench in that shit.

- My 3 year old refuses to poop on the toilet. She’s in hide and dump mode right now. It’s frustrating but I know you can’t force it.

13397677, im petty. too petty probably.

Practicing social distancing, stay with a mask on but-- sheeit if it doesn't hurt to watch some ball at the bar with some folk..
13397938, So people can’t talk shit about Biden on here anymore?
Posted by legsdiamond, Fri Aug-07-20 07:49 AM
because it will be called a right wing talking point?


13397940, They can talk shit about Biden
Posted by Lurkmode, Fri Aug-07-20 07:55 AM
but can't use a right wing source.
13397951, So if they used the Complex article shitting on him over this
Posted by legsdiamond, Fri Aug-07-20 08:30 AM
it would’ve been okay even tho they link to sources on twitter that are right wing?

Ionno man.. I think we need to be able to discuss his fuck ups or what some may think are fuck ups without having the perfect source.

13397993, No because the source would still be right wing.
Posted by Lurkmode, Fri Aug-07-20 10:22 AM

>Ionno man.. I think we need to be able to discuss his fuck ups
>or what some may think are fuck ups without having the perfect

I agree we should be able to discuss his fuck ups but not if it's coming from stormfront.
13397943, nah yall just cant do it disingenuously and agenda'd spin
Posted by BrooklynWHAT, Fri Aug-07-20 08:04 AM
biden aint hard to criticize but the means some of these folks attempt to do it with are garbage and they know it too.
13397944, I get that..
Posted by legsdiamond, Fri Aug-07-20 08:12 AM
but at the same time we should be able to discuss how Biden makes it easy to grab a clip and make him look like an ass.

I saw thru that last clip as soon as I watched it but the media is going to use this shit against him.

I appreciated the convos and pushback going on in that thread

13397958, It's interesting who gets to decide what is free speech or not
Posted by Vector, Fri Aug-07-20 08:47 AM
13397963, I just think with politics
Posted by legsdiamond, Fri Aug-07-20 09:06 AM
we should be able to chop it up without being called MAGA any time the criticism is also being used by some right winger somewhere else online.

13397996, Do you think the first amendment is about message board
Posted by Cold Truth, Fri Aug-07-20 10:33 AM
because that's not what freedom of speech entails.

13398100, you can still lie on here
Posted by Rjcc, Fri Aug-07-20 04:25 PM
you can probably talk shit about biden too.

try it

www.engadgethd.com - the other stuff i'm looking at
13397969, I wish we could mute/block people on here
Posted by CherNic, Fri Aug-07-20 09:34 AM
I already spend more time here than I really want anyway cuz of being stuck in the house. Would be great to just block out some of the noise
13398008, gonna see my sister, mom, niece and nephew finally
Posted by mista k5, Fri Aug-07-20 11:45 AM
my sister finally got called back to work so before she starts she decided to drive across texas to visit my brother and i. we all pretty much stay in hour houses. i think we will mostly just spend our time at my brothers house while theyre here. still risky but cant say im not excited.

very last minute but im with it. seeing my other nephew as well. only missing my brother from SC. went ahead and gave myself a haircut last night. i think it was the quickest one ive done and i think it turned out pretty good.

if only my car stereo didnt give out yesterday this would be a pretty perfect weekend lol
13398099, Word- i saw my mom for the first time in 5-6 months last week
Posted by vik, Fri Aug-07-20 04:23 PM
Stay safe!
13398299, um
Posted by mista k5, Mon Aug-10-20 01:38 PM
