                 Dave is back

That’s right… Dave Chappelle is back. He came back strong in a three part stand-up on Netflix. Now he is joining other big names such as Childish Gambino, The Roots, and others at Radio City Music Hall in NYC, which he has taken over for the month of August. Dave Chappelle is best known for his controversial yet hilarious skits on The Chappelle Show. His show on Netflix touches on many of the rumors that surfaced regarding his long break from the business, including issues about health and drugs. I am personally glad that Dave Chappelle is back. If you can’t make it to New York to see it this August, be sure to tune into Netflix to check out Dave Chappelle and hear about all 4 times he met O.J.


#MayweatherMcGregor

YES…it is really happening. Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. and MMA fighter Conner McGregor are scheduled to battle it out August 26,2017 in Las Vegas. What I love about this is very simple… these two are some of the best taunters that I have seen lately. Take a look at @McGregor’s post as he slyly makes reference to Mayweather’s age.

I must say, love the pink. The fact that Floyd doesn’t seem to be too worried about this upcoming bout; as he is busy promoting his new club in Las Vegas and his #Mayweatherchallenge.

Upon looking for any trash talk from Floyd I was only able to come across the name of his new club (warning explicit lyrics) Girl Collection.  Obviously he has his hands in many business ventures, but wouldn’t the real possibility of being beaten make you focus a little? Well I hope he gets more training in because my bet is on #McGREGOR.


  Chance the Rapper

What is it about Chance the Rapper? This young man has accomplished so much at his young age. He is the only artist in history to not only be nominated, but win a Grammy as an unsigned artist. He has done huge amounts of charity work including helping to intervene in the lives of  Chicago’s young men of color. He has also pledged to donate $1 million to Chicago’s Public School System, which has led to him being honored by BET with the Humanitarian Award. Although it’s not uncommon to see interpreters on stages now a days. Chance decided to stay within his community and team up with a black owned ASL company to sign for him while on tour. Chance the Rapper in my opinion is a role model. #itallstartswithyou #rolemodel #humanitarian

Between the Lines

Friday began like any other day, enjoying the day off with the Mrs.. We get through breakfast ( really brunch considering it was 1:15 pm) with no dilemma, which is pretty hard now a days. As we lounge on the couch watching T.V., she goes into the bedroom and returns rather quickly. Concerned, I ask if everything is fine. She responds yes with a confused look on her face. “Well honey what is it?” I asked. “Did you move my clothes?” she asked . Now I’m completely confused because we have been sitting in the same place for at least two hours. “What clothes??!!” I responded, and the response i got floored me.communication

This woman whom I have vowed to give the rest of my life too, looks at me and says ” I tried to throw my clothes in the hamper, but missed. They look closer to the hamper than before.” Well, let me tell you, I laughed so hard in her face. I’ll tell you why, if you think I’m so lazy that I won’t pick the clothes up and put them in the hamper, but will push them closer to it, you think I’m pretty lazy. I will admit, I do have my moments and I think it caught me off guard that she tried to call me out on it. However, being the wonderfully sarcastic individual that I am; I collected myself and responded, “really, i didn’t even notice the clothes on the floor with so many on the bed.”( Referring to the pile of clothes I had just washed the day before and she promised to fold). If looks could reach out and touch us, I would have been slapped with her eyeball.

The beauty of it all though, is because we have relationship goals and communication. Communication  is the key to any relationship, be it business or personal we have to communicate with one another. Otherwise, what was meant as a joke could be taken in a harmful way. Get to know, truly know, the people in your circle. Don’t waste time trying to read between the lines.
