it's getting late...

It’s getting late…

It’s getting late

And I have yet to see you
It’s getting late
And my heard can’t find you
My mind cannot bear
To see you not there
Beside me

It’s getting late
And I’m still waiting for your call
It’s getting late
I’m going nowhere at all
But should I, should I stay here and dream
Believe in the possibilities
Or let go
Of you

It’s getting late…

It’s getting late….
The clock has stopped its ticking
The light is dim
I guess you’re just a sweet memory

Endless beginnings
Soundless touch explores the skin
Creations climax

…what a freak.

Happy valentine’s night.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Archer.

An artist. Musician. Performer. Singer. Songwriter. Master of his craft. The definition of soul music.

D’Angelo, thank you to the highest degree. Thank you. Thank you so very much. Thank you for being patient with yourself and your music and giving me countless, classic cuts that I will never get tired of.

If there is any artist that I hold to such a high standard, that I trust with every ounce of trust I’ve got in me, that I love, that I respect…it’s Michael D’Angelo Archer. His music has had a profound impact on the way I see things, the world, and the way I listen to sound. I don’t think I would be the person I am without having found his music in 2000. Voodoo will have a special place in my heart. Always.

Hearing “Untitled” for the first time was life-altering to say the least, haha. That was the first time I was exposed to such a bass-heavy, funky, soulful tune. My ears were just full of…of wonder and excitement. I was wide-eyed with interest. I couldn’t take my eyes off of him, for more than one reason. I knew…I just knew that he was someone that I wanted to musically explore. And I’ve done just that.

D’Angelo is music. Music is a part of him. It’s the way he reflects on life, the way he expresses his feelings and emotions. And I can feel it every time. With every guitar lick, every sung note, every drumbeat, every melody and soothing harmony, every sound…I feel it. Two classic albums: Brown Sugar and Voodoo. And add the many covers and rare tunes that he’s got. I still bump them all. STILL. Every single track. If that doesn’t scream “classic” to you in the midst of all these single-driven albums and 15 minute-famous-sans-the-talent artists I don’t know what does. With all the rush and the fast-paced happenings we call life, D is always able to just sit back, relax and jam. He’s one of the most patient artists I know. Despite the news Tip dropped yesterday, I’m still anxiously awaiting D’s return. I trust with all my heart that he will never try to please the fans and admirers before he himself is pleased with his work. And that’s a standard I think so many artists should have. Five years between two albums is basically unheard of now. Why? Because people believe that inspiration is something you pick of from 7/11 around the corner for $5.99 plus tax.

Today, the musical genius turns 35. And I couldn’t be happier. Happy Birthday D’Angelo. I love you.

You didn't dig my flow, but you're still welcome.

White dog barked at me the other day while I was on my way to class. I just can’t catch a break, can I…even when I’m tryna get my education lol. I’m playin’.

I feel like it’s the middle of the year already. 2009. Wow. Days are just going by so fast. I can’t even absorb the day’s events and the night’s episodes. I get taken aback by it sometimes, almost overwhelmed. Is my life really progressing like this? It’s always good to just take two steps back and really take a look at the unfinished painting that is my life. I always find something I’ve noticed.
So, I missed the big Laker/Boston game. MISSED all of it. Every last (b)ounce of it. Why? Studying. Just haaaaaaad to study. Study all the wrong material for that matter, lol. I get to my psychology exam and half the shit I studied wasn’t even on it. The fuck was that? I was just singing D’s song in my head…

Shit, damn, motherfucker

Pretty much summed up how I was feeling. Nonetheless I think I did OK. But OK in my terms is not really OK, persay, kinda, sorta. Whatevs though, because it’s only the first exam. It’s not the end of the world…or so I think. Dun Dun Dun Dun!

I’m just about restless, yet tired of this sentence structure so I’m gonna just sum everything up point form bullet bullet style.

- I missed Tip on Ellen. ELLEN! Fuuuuudge.
- Grammy’s sucked. Jazzy was robbed. Carrie Underwood was blazing. Sugarland was sick. Radiohead’s performance was wicked cool. Boyz II Men singing background pissed me off. Jamie Foxx and Neyo singing with the two four tops while Boyz II Men was in attendance pissed me off. Jazzy got robbed. Miley Cyrus should quit singing. J-Hud was amazing. Eric B and fam looked soo beautiful. Robin Thicke was THAT DUDE; his vocals are just…stunning. N.O tribute was nice. J.T. and T.I. were O.K. Swagga like us performance was just eh…M.I.A is a trooper. Jonas Brothers and Stevie Wonder collabo was not the business…And it’s MR WONDER to y’all.
- 24…still gotta watch it.
- Needa write some poems/songs/regular nonsensical stuff.
- I’m racking my brain about the guitar on Downtime remix by Foreign Exchange…I swear I’ve heard it somewhere…”Cuz I ain’t got fuck-around time…”
- I love soulbounce.com
- According to Q-tip, D’s album is coming in 2010 and a single is dropping in the fall.
- Happy B-day D’angelo =). You know a full blog entry is gonna be dedicated to him right? Lol
- I don’t get why a woman and her husband sat on opposite ends of the subway seats, holding a conversation when there were three seats beside her. SMDH. Yelling and shit like I wanted to hear all that.
- Exam this Friday my favourite number day. Excellent.
- You know, it’s really annoying to have a class full of about 25 and have about 17 of them with laptops typing EVERYTHING the prof puts up on the slides…almost in motherfuckin unison! LOL. Kinda irritating me, the notepad guru. I just kept saying WTF. I think the prof was too ‘cause she kept stopping here and there with a “holy shit” look on her face.
- Eccentricity makes the world go round.
- Ever makes jokes to yourself? Yeah, I do that too and end up smilling a little too much for my own good, haha. Just the other day I saw a girl at the subway and said to myself “she looks like Dubaku from 24” LOL.
- Facebookers need to lay off the 25 things about me shit. I remember clicking on the notes link and just seeing the ENTIRE first two pages filled with that. Some girl in my class was even doing it during lecture lmao. It’s 09. Let’s do better, haha.
