hiatus pt. 2/my 198 cents

Afraid I have some bad news. Late last week, my darling Dell laptop decided to take its own life, making it exceedingly difficult for me to update my blog. Hence, updates will be few and far between. Perhaps there is a silver lining to things tragedy...think of it as a good time to peruse the other things I've written and leave me loads of comments. Hopefully, my laptop will be in working order shortly, or my workload will clear up so I can sneak a bit of blogging at work.

On another note, this week I'm giving you my 99 cents twice [which is why its my 198 cents. Duh.] The first song is Feel Like Makin Love by Miss Roberta Flack. It's a lovely song, romantic in a 70s keyboard kind of way. It's one of those songs you hate to admit make you feel warm in fuzzy inside, like Lovin' You by Minnie Riperton, but you can't help it.

The second song is *wait for it* Feel Like Makin Love by D'angelo. I put the two songs together because you should never break up a set. D'angelo's cover is more funky and more sexy than the original. The beat is sexy like throaty laughter and the perfect little black dress. [This mushiness is part of the excitement over this weekend's special gentleman caller, so please forgive me. I'll regain my composure in a few days.]


D'angelo's version is unfortunately not on Mixit, but you can listen to it using YouTube here. And take a second look at that picture: isn't he beautiful? There aren't many people I would be a groupie for, but for him? Yes, please. Pleae come back to us, D'angelo! Put out another album! I heard you on Snoop's Tha Blue Carpet Treatment and I know you're out there!

Sorry about all of this. Try not to miss me and tell a friend! Thanks.

  1. After D'angelo's appearance on Tha Blue Carpet Treatment, he said i he was working on an album. Last time I heard a peep from him was... maybe December of 07? So, you might be waiting for a while.

  2. You should check out the blog/site Soulbounce.com
    That's where I get all my soul updates. I think it was mentioned that D' had an interview in a magazine. He said he felt like a piece of meat after he released the Untitled video. Women wanted him to just take off his clothes at the concerts!


Thanks so much for your comments!
