Every generation thinks the music of their youth is better than the what’s being played today. In my case, it is actually true. Let me present, Milli Vanilli.
Okay, everyone likes to joke about this group now but you know you were jamming to this back in the day. Robert Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan weren’t actually singing on these tracks but that doesn’t change the fact that they made an impact on the 80’s. Look at their style. Look at those braids and tight biker pants. The silly dance moves. They were the 80’s. And we all were singing along.
“Girl, You know it’s True”
“Blame It on the Rain”
Go ahead, admit it. You liked Milli Vanilli, didn’t you?
Congratulations to the Miami Heat! I’m not a LeBron fan but the man played his ass off and deserved the win.
Our Deepest Fear
By Marianne Williamson
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were all meant to shine, as children do.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
this book totally changed my perception of Emmett Till. growing up, I was horrified of the picture of his corpse—mangled. bloated. unrecognizable as human. america’s ugly face on display. just the mention of his name would remind that monsters do exist. spark fear that this world was still unchanged. my son, not wanted in his own country. Emmett Till was my monster—until this book. I believe in magic. in waiting. in redemption. & I believe in love. thank you Ms. McFadden.
(artist/author note: I could not accept Esther had no redeeming quality)
