Jan. 18th, 2007 04:33 pm A Rite of Passage

Well, on 10 January 2007 I crossed that major threshold in life. Age 40! I'm still trying to figure out how I made it. I was able to envision myself at age 30 and below. Age 40 seemed some far off mist that really didn't exist. I'm here now and with a 4 month old to boot! What a wild ride!

For the big 4-0, I went to see the Rockets vs. Lakers. My wife totally shocked me with that one! Kobe vs. T-Mac! Yeah, baby! Plus a night at the Westin Galleria hotel. *shakes head* My wife totally got me on that one. I had no idea she was pulling this off! Everything was perfect. The only thing that would have added to the whole thing was for Momma to be here. :(

Alas, I pray that this 40th year of existence will be a year of increase for me and my family. Thanks to all those who remembered my day! My God bless you with overflowing joy!

Yipee!! The Storm/Black Panther mini-series goes on sale this week. I'm saving every last penny I can find (in the couch, under the bed, in the car) to buy TWO copies.

Naturally, this has inspired me to write another drabble. It fills in the missing scene from Black Panther 10 to Black Panther 11.

I'm so excited about the Storm/Black Panther upcoming events! I can't wait. I think I'll buy two of each book, so I can have one to read and one to put away for posterity. Here's another drabble:

I've really been into the Black Panther lately. I like Rex Hudlin's take on him so far. He makes T'challa not only kingly and bad black to the bone, but he has him arrogant almost to the point of recklessness,even Rogue pointed that out. However, Rogue and Storm and agree that T'challa is HOT! I'm also glad to see that Ororo and T'challa almost seem to know that they are made/destined for one another. That payoff at the end of Black Panther 9 made my month!

Now to the other side of the coin, the Boondocks animated show. Wow! I can't explain how crazy that show is. I've read mixed reviews, but I think Aaron McGruder is now to able to show more graphical his satirical wit. If you haven't seen the show, especially those of us who are of African descent, check it out on Sundays at 11:00 EST or 10:00 CST. WARNING: THIS IS NOT FOR KIDS!!

Nov. 8th, 2005 10:00 pm Strange Fruit

Southern trees bear a strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black body swinging in the Southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

Pastoral scene of the gallant South,
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
Scent of magnolia sweet and fresh,
And the sudden smell of burning flesh!

Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for a tree to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter crop.

Lewis Allan 1939
