“***Flawless” by Beyoncé


One day I will devote the time it will take to write about why I love Beyoncé so much.  In the meantime, let us celebrate her genius through videos.  ***Flawless is one of my favorite songs on this album.

First off, the hip-hop rappin Girls Tyme.  Second, this video is DOPE.  Third, the message of this song is awesome.  Beyoncé has given us so many anthems and/or all-time phrases.  And here she is again, just GIVING us like three more.  Tell me you haven’t used/heard the terms – Flawless, I woke up like dis, or bow down, bitches – in the last year.  Why?  Because it’s awesome.  Do it.  Shake your hands in front of your face and say “I woke up like dis!”  And then strike a pose and say “we flawless.”  Now tell me you’re not feelin’ yourself right now.  Fourth, Skeleton Crew.

Bow down, bitches.


PVOTD: “One Man Can Change the World” by Big Sean


Two things: I love Big Sean and I love my grandma.  This song about how much Big Sean loves his grandma kills me.  Add John Legend and Yeezy singing, and I need like five minutes to recover.

Ain’t nothin sweeter than a boy who loves his gramma.

“Joyland” by Stephen King


Confession: this is the first Stephen King book I’ve ever read.  Whatever, I read a lot of books.  I don’t feel bad.  Anyway, this was a bargain buy.  I like to hit up my neighborhood Barnes & Noble every so often to see how sad it is, for one, and to pick up any clearance deals.  I judge these books by their covers as they’re often haphazardly stacked on a cart.  Obviously this cover was amazing.

Color me really fucking excited when this book turned out to be an emotional rollercoaster of awesomeness.  I liked it so much, I immediately mailed it to my mom for her to read.  I don’t think I’ve ever done that before.

I don’t like to blab on too much in my posts because who wants me to ruin the experience?  I will say that this book will make most grown people cry.  There is a sense of magic in this book that I haven’t experienced in while.  You have an incredibly vivid world full of unique characters, and on top of that, a murder mystery!
