I Believe – The Remix

This is a rewrite of an old post that I did to start this blog. I wanted to update the list and to give some of the new readers a little bit more information about me. Just a little insight on the way I think. Let me reintroduce myself:

I believe that a pretty smile and a good attitude are the biggest elements to making a woman sexy.

I believe that the 90 Day Rule works but it doesn’t take that long to decide if you want to be with somebody.

I believe that despite all the hype that the Lakers and Celtics are getting, it will be the Pistons and Spurs in the NBA Finals.

I believe that the older you get the more you realize how much you don’t know about life.

I believe that the last episode of The Wire was excellent and showed the game continues regardless of whether justice gets served or not.

I believe that nobody will ever be as hot as Michael Jackson was in his prime.

I believe that Don Cheadle is the best actor in Hollywood.

I believe that Kobe Byrant is the best basketball player in the NBA.

I believe that current radio is more detrimental to the youth than drugs, poverty or lack of heath care

I believe that the plays of August Wilson should be mandatory reading in all public schools.

I believe that somewhere along the way mothers stopped teaching their daughters the proper undergarments to wear with each outfit and how to walk in heels.

I believe that Erykah Badu’s New Amerykah, while not her best effort, is better than anything being pumped on the radio right now.

I believe that Barack Obama is being set up for a big fall...Watch out Brother!

I believe Kellogg’s Corn Pops are the world's greatest breakfast cereal

Agree or Disagree?

Chief, some of these are hard to disagree with...
I especially feel the older you get the less you know and that August Wilson should be read by every student - white, black, Croatian whatever
I cant say that I feel you on the Corn pops though - they are mad tasty - but Cookie Crisp can dub as a cereal and as a dessert - LOL

Torrance Stephens bka All-Mi-T said...

im with the smile on a woman, and eys, and Don is the best, but I must dd Terrance H and Jeffery Wright and Lorenz tate up there too

Great post...because I am a new reader. I agree with you on that 90 day rule. Women usually know off top if they are feeling you or not.

I believe Corn Pops leave you hungry after a hour. (Mostly air).

I believe fathers need to teach their sons to use belts. (Add to woman and underwear).

Gemini Girl aka GG said...

I pretty much agree with most of this...
MJ , YES definitely...
and thanks for introducing me to the 90 day rule....I think I can pretty much tell by day 15....

I didn't learn to walk in heels or match my panties and bras til I was in my 20s but shawty is a 10!!

the best breakfast cereal is post almond cranberry crunch!!!! recognize!!!

MsMarvalus said...

Imma agree with you on almost all of these, except...

Quit sleeping on the Cavs, man...

Don over Denzel? Maybe a close second, but never 1st...

Kobe and Lebron are very neck and neck...very...

Frosted Flakes, for real...

This was good...

I remember that post :)

I need to smile more. It's my best feature.

90 Day Rule? Break that down in a post. I might need to apply that soon.

Don Cheadle in on the list. He's certainly at the top of the most underrated that's for sure.

You already know how I feel about NA. I think it ties with Baduizm for first place. Baduizm prolly has the edge if it came down to it because it's a classic in neo soul.

I won't speak on Kobe because I hate him with a passion and it clouds my judgement of his skill. I prolly agree with your picks though.

They are doing a retrospective of August's plays at The Kennedy Center. Should have been mandatory viewing.

Soumy - I'm not mad at Cookie Crips but I could never get those as a kid so I have to go with what I know.

All-Mi-T - Did you say Larenz Tate? You are going to have to give me a film he had a great performance in so I can go see it.

Brittany - Welcome aboard. Yeah, women know early on but you still need time to clean up your stuff before you decide to become official.

the true urban queen - I haven't had that problem with my Corn Pops. You are so right about the fathers and belts. I'm going add that one to the next list. We might have to find some fathers to teach that lesson though.

GG - So you learned your colors and numbers in your 20's? That cereal has was too high of a fiber count to be at the top of my list.

msmarvalus - I know you are a Cavs fan but I didn't like that trade and I'm still not convinced that they have a second scorer to help Bron-Bron. Speaking of which, Kobe is way ahead of him because he actually plays on the defensive end of the floor. I'll take Don over Denzel because he is more versatile. Other than Training Day and Malcolm X, Denzel is pretty much the same dude in every movie.
I'm not even going to address a cereal that gets soggy if you don't eat it right away.

smile/attitude - also sexy on men

I usually do 60days, 90 is straight torture and whats really the point

i can give you the spurs but not detroit... I'm riding with the celtics

agree and am so afraid of that

i wouldnt say excellent, but everything came full circle

Agree to no end... I dont care what he looks like now.. no one will ever be able to do what he's done in such a dynamic way... MJ 4eva

One of the best... I totally agree... and doesnt get his due shine

F8ck Kobe... did I say that out loud

Agree

Your going to shoot me right now probably but I've never read an August Wilson play

True... my momma is a regional manager for victoria's secret so we always had the correct undergarmants but she never taught me how to walk in heels, she hardly ever wore them and most times I despise them... unless i'm out on the town at night... but to work... if I could wear tims and sneaks all day everyday I would... but I have a crazy boot fetish though...

Agree... erykah is the shiznit

Watch out BO - Barack. the VOte

Nada... I'll go with some cinnamon toast crunch

Ieisha said...

Frosted Flakes are the world's greatest breakfast cereal. Along with Cap'n Crunch.

I'd rather listen to Talib Kweli's "Eardrum" or anything by Jill Scott before listening to that latest joint from Erykah Badu

And I think Kobe is great but not the best.

Smuckers said...

Sexy lips, a beautiful smile, and a sense of humor are what makes a man extremely sexy to me....

90 days? I can usually tell in 90 minutes...

Not a NBA fan since Michael Jordan left the game...so I wouldn't know

Yup...life continues to teach and surprise me....

I love MJ...even though I can't even stand looking at him anymore. The way he is now BREAKS My HEART...but I have his greatest hits album..and I love it

Don Cheadle...Yes, definitely...and though I love Jamie Fox, Don should've gotten that Oscar...

Kobe can get hit by a bus...

You're right...the radio is garbage

I never cared for heels, but I'll wear them when necessary...

I know that this may mean that I have to turn in my "educated-black-person" card, but who is August Wilson?

I like Erykah...but I can only stand so much of her music...Jill Scott ALL DAY!!!

I don't know what's gonna happen with Barack..but for the first time in a long time...I'm excited about the political process...

Corn Pops....naw..I can eat Frosted Mini Wheats all day long!!!
