Music Monday: Every Moment

Music Monday

It’s been 20 years since their last album, “The Show, the After Party ,the Hotel” (although “Diary of a Mad Band”, in my opinion is one of the best R&B albums EVER!) And I stanned this group like people stan EXO or Hansen….

The Past, The Present, The Future was released and honestly I didn’t think too much of it there have been so many  whispers about a Jodeci reunion I never took them seriously, and after I saw Jo-Jo on VH1 “Couples Therapy” I was like, this is a hot mess (that entire season was  hot freakin’ mess… I highly suggest you watch it.. for the Courtney Stodden factor), they aren’t coming back anytime soon. Let’s be honest one or more of them have been drugged out, boozed out, lifed out and after I while I just wrote them off and figured they would ride into obscurity like a lot of groups from the 90’s.

 

One thing that Jodeci has been known for is their “baby making songs” and this album serves of several. I think the thing that surprised me the most about this album was there wasn’t any surprises…. this album ‘and the songs) could have gone on any of their previous albums… and I like that because it makes it seem like little or no time has passed. When the album my first thought was, “please don’t tour…. please don’t come to Chicago….. I’m too old to be screaming and yelling and acting a fool” (I would still totally do it…. shame be damn)

Now let’s talk about this video, first things first I was reminded that Devante had a damn face tattoo.. let’s all take a mental pause,  what goes through your mind when you decide to get a face tattoo, certainly, “this I gonna look hot when I’m 70” is not one of them. Second it was cold and there was snow,  you want to me attempt to be sexy and sing in the snow and cold; I can barley stand the 10 minutes it takes to warm my car up. Third (this is gonna be slightly mean) but Jo-Jo looks like that old freaky guy from church that tries to hit on the young girls.. (they haven’t aged well at all…. that’s what drugs and hard living do to you) Fourth what the hell is that on Dalvin’s head it looks like a furry albino pig (I hope it’s fake) Yeah so overall I wasn’t all that impressed with the video, but let’s be honest their videos haven’t every really been anything to write home about. and since their too old  to dance, I guess a winter mountain scene is the best we’re gonna get.

Despite my grumbling I’m glad that their back, I hope that they have some success (althogh I doubt that they will ever have the level of fame that they had back in the 90’s) and hopefully more music will come out before they decide to take another extended hiatus, all in all there is nothing wrong with a little nostalgia..

Every Moment can be found on Jodeci’s latest album  “The Past, The Present, The Future”

Until Next Time….

Someone Who Will Understand

Positive Outlooks Blog

A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the 4 pups, and set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard.

As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt tug on his overalls.

He looked down into the eyes of a little boy.

“Mister,” he said, “I want to buy one of your puppies.”

“Well,” said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat of the back of his neck, “these puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money.”

The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket,
he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer. “I’ve
got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?”

“Sure,” said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle. “Here Dolly!” he…

You Can’t Keep Shedding Tears

Positive Outlooks Blog

No matter how bad it hurts or how bad you feel, it’s time to stop thinking about that person who played with your feelings, who took your love for granted, who never appreciated your care, who wasn’t contented with what you could give him or her. You can’t stay at that hurtful place anymore. You can’t keep shedding tears over someone who doesn’t deserve the love you gave. You can’t keep feeling sorry for yourself and thinking if only you did more. You can’t make them want the relationship because if they wanted they wouldn’t have let go of you. You deserve better now. You deserve someone who appreciates you and who won’t play with your delicate heart. Just like a cut on your hand will take time to heal, your broken heart needs time to heal as well. That’s not the end of your life. You will get over…

Writing Prompt: Write an anonymous letter to someone you’re jealous of.

Dear Daddy’s Girl,

There are times when I see you and get jealous, of the relationship that you have with your father, I sit back sometimes and wonder how does that feel. There was never a time in my life when I felt that type a love from my father, and as I get older and the years continue to pass, I know it never will.

I am jealous that he got to be the first man to ever tell you that you were pretty, and he’ll be the one to walk you down the aisle when you get married. I wish I had to courage to walk up to you and ask you if the relationship you have with your father effects the relationship that you have with other men in your life… it’s probably better that I don’t know, I’m pretty sure that I know the answer to that.

I am jealous, but I can’t hate you for having something that I don’t have, I’ll never be daddy’s little girl, but one day maybe I can be something better for someone else.

Signed,

Green-Eyed Monster
