Ode to A Fine Frenzy

Last night I definitely achieved a milestone in this writing thing I happen to do whenever the moment compels me. Yes folks, a milestone. Like shaving off a second of your 100m time. That kind of dope milestone. 

I wrote my first collaborative piece with the lovely Brandi. So we sat down and rapped about somethings. Threw some words in the atmosphere, bonded about our love of Sara Bareilles, Colbie Caillat and A Fine Frenzy. That bond got put on paper. And neither of us knew how exactly this whole collab thing words but we made it work. I schpealed, she schpealed... we schpealed together. And there it went. A poem titled "A Fine Frenzy" featuring the chorus of Almost Lover. We took that seed of an idea and ran with it. So Big Ups to my new Boo. cause also we fell in love. it's what happens when people write together. 

I also got inspired to write this poem about culture. Every poet needs a culture piece and I think I got mine. So lets hope its as banging on paper as it is in my head. There's also the prospect of some more collabs in my future. So my future is shinin' like word. 

I think if people verbalized their thought process more during daily acitvities, imagine the hypeness that people would just be radiating. It'd be on some next shit. Mad Ill. the time we were writing we were thinking outloud and working out the lines verbally and it kept the adrenaline flowing. which makes me think of what sex would be like if people employed that method. well maybe that's what dirty talk is. whatever the point is, im digressing. if we appreciated the moments as they were happening then the moments could be so much better. 

I've felt that lately my life has been falling into place. Falling being the improper word simply cause it's more being carefully placed into place and falling makes it sound like it's haphazardly happening and I personally don't leave my life to chance that much. But yes, my life has been setting itself into place lately little by little. I feel like I'm able to start thinking about breathing again. Like my inhale can start to exhale and I can get some new atmosphere into my system. I'm letting go of things that don't deserve to be held and I'm holding on to myself before anything else. I'm branching out folks.

Courtesy of CNN: Barack Obama leads in National Poll. check it out folks. 56% to McCain's 45%. PS: you know America's in trouble when one decides to attack someone else on the basis of terroristic intentions and connections. Thats what we call some bullshit folks. I love this country and the idea of a meritocracy. Make me choose you cause you're better not because the other is "worse". 

Throwback tidbit: a clause in her contact said theyd pay for her education. so she's a doctor now. anyone wanna give me a record deal?
