Today's Jam


A couple of days ago was a TRUE ICONs birthday (don't know why ereone is a icon now...it's kinda annoying, lols). Anyhoos, Grace Jones music career spans decades but she was also a formidable model and actress...a triple threat indeed. I've always been a huge fan and continue to be one until the day I leave this earth.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you MS. GRACE JONNNEEESSSSS.......

Genre: Spirituality, Psychology, Self Help

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

As someone who is attempting (and at times not succeeding) to go through personal change, I found The Four Agreements to be very helpful and it's explanation in establishing four simple rules to your life and gaining personal freedom. Mr. Ruiz has four things he feels we all should have and they are:
Be Impeccable With Your WordDon't Take Anything Personally (a struggle for myself)Don't Make AssumptionsAlways Do Your Best With these four Agreements, this author believes we have the power to to change our lives. Mr. Ruiz sees this world as a dream state (think the Matrix). And in this dream, we are being domesticated with ever day beliefs that can at times weigh us down heavily. I can attest to this as I do believe that we can AND do get stuck on things such as how we are viewed by other…

Harriet Tubman: Demon Slayer #1 (#Comics)

Author: David Crownson
Illustrator: Courtland Ellison
Source: Self Purchased
Format: PDF Download
Published: ?
Series: Yes
Genre: Comics, Fantasy, Horror
Available: Peep Game Comix

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

The first installment in the comic Harriet Tubman: Demon Slayer starts off pretty dang on exciting. There is no slow build up and this author holds nothing back. There are only 32 pages in this comic book and I don't want to give too much away. In my attempt to be as brief as possible here, I'll do bullet points.
There is Vampire horde and some are posing as slave catchers. The slaves in this comic are fighting and shooting back. Harriet Tubman reminded me a lot of Michonne from TWD (there is a Katana!).The illustrator did a bomb ass job. Amazing detail to the characters.There is lots of action and some humor too.Harriet Tubman is still helping slaves to freedom but she is also "freeing" these demons! A good start to a what seems to be a pretty kick ass comic...I'm looking forwa…

Another one I have mixed feelings about.

I mean I liked it...really enjoyed the mash of contemporary , historical, paranormal and time travel themes going on in Tea and Tomahawks but ugh, this heroine...just ugh.

And trust me, I get Annie was an abused woman (which I don't condone at all). But....this chick knew she was in a bad situation the day after her marriage began, had IMO the perfect way to get out of it (by way of her Grandmother) and just didn't...ugh. I truly wanted to bop her upside the head a couple of times while reading. Yes, she was a shy introverted person but to constantly take shit from a person she knew was a POS was just annoying to read.

The ending however, was quite surprising and I was pleasantly shocked by it...totally wasn't expecting it so kudos to the author for that. I…

You know, I've always been quite a Katy Perry fan (even tho I know most folks don't like her....idky....I mean she is problematic some of the times (meaning she just needs to be quiet sometimes...) but you really can't help when she comes with a good beat.... ). Anyhoo's enjoy!
