Haters...


Why all those Playa Haters (yeah i'm using that word...) here on the blog? 

All respect to all of you who show me love instead of hate/xenophobia.

What's black? And what's white?


What is black? And what is white? That's the question. I guess this is a very complex question to ask myself. I got this comment and I've heard it before:

"Be careful. If you start sounding too much like a Jamaican black man, these black women heaping praise on you, will soon dismiss you for being a black man in a white skin. lol."

What is being black? What is being white? Are there really something like being a "black" or "white"? Maybe I i like a lot that comes from the black culture - the african-american culture, the caribbean culture, the african culture. Music, art, design, style, fashion etc etc - it's all good things. 

And if I'm inspirered bu the black culture, does that really make me "less attractive" (what word should I use? LOL) to black women? I mean, I dont want a woman that act in a certain way, just beacuase she feels she must. I want here to be real. And if that means she's one way or another thats all-good and long as it is for real.

So fill me in - What is Black and what is white? :)

Thickness is a good thing.

I'll start with this - Get me right - all shapes are beautiful in their way. This is a statement to look beyond what media is brainwashing us with.

I'm telling you like it is. Beyond sterotypes, prejudice and distorted ideal in media. Nothing new here when it comes to my blog, I guess. But I think it's about time to up-lift the curvy women too. I guess I'll get a lot of negative commentary now - but who really cares? Time to give some big-up to the curvy and confident black women out there. Thickness is a good thing!

We don't need the distorted Hollywood ideal anymore. Tired of if. Tired of skinny white supermodel ideal in my face all the time.

All shapes are beautiful. Thick or not. Skinny or not. Be proud. (LOL do I sound like a parent now?)

No Lauryn. Mo' Estelle.



As I was telling you (me) about a few months ago - this summer's Stockholm Jazz Festival was gonna be "da bomb" - with Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu and Leela James - all on stage. Sadly Lauryn cancelled here preformance. But I'm not a guy that get too sad :) Instead they've decided to get the brittish soul-singing beauty Estelle to the festival. Isnt that nice too? And I've already seen Lauryn back in 2005. So It's all good... 

Still here...

Hey y'all!
Wanna say sorry for being so "offline" lately on my blog!
It's been hectic lately - sometimes life is hectic, somtimes smooth...

But I'm still here, and will be back even more!

Stay blessed!
