#MusicMonday – His Name Is?

I will tell you his name in just a bit..hehhehe – what it do folks? Great Monday, I hope? Mine was chilled, the bus didn't even annoy me today, was listening to music and dancing (don't know why I keep doing that, I have no shame whatsoever) I almost missed my stop.

So for someone who claims to be private and really only share information with limited folks – I find myself able to tell you (blogsville) about anything and even knowing that people who know me personally (e.g. my dad, lol) read this doesn't deter me – there is just something about writing that frees me – it's probably why I don't hold on to anything and I'm able to let go so easily – nways my point for all this talk is I want to report my mummy to you

I love the woman to death, I do – but sometimes I swear I just want to give her a piece of my mind – so I tell her, HE and I are no longer talking, we going to try to be friends still – now I couldn't tell her the many reasons why this is true – I don't know how to lie to my parents, at least not any longer and she asked about him so I answered right? And she is going to say and I quote "hahah, why can't you hold on to relationships?" – oweeee, even now as I tell you, my blood is boiling over again – like my first thought was wtf? But I was raised right & the Holy Spirit spoke the words not me, in which I told her that it wasn't my fault and things happen and bye of course

It's a harsh thing to say and I'm still going to talk to her about it, but I understand where she is coming from – u see she has been divorced more years than she was married and with four kids, our happiness is what she lives for – and u know nja now, where my dad has remarried and has three other kids, she is single still – so that whole trying to make sure I have long lasting marriage clouds her judgment sumtimes in how she expects me to be with a boy and be tolerant and not want to end things so quickly or whatever

But this is where I stand – I believe in love, I really do – but I believe in love that is gentle and kind, peaceful, no stress, no insecurities, loads of trust, leave the baggage and the past experiences outside, have faith in us, understand that distance should not be a problem ever, be sensitive to my needs, know that sex enhances but is nothing to do with why I want to be with u, love that is good, strong and able to withstand anything – I will only settle for the kind of love that makes me deliriously happy and for a man that is a representation of my identity, someone who wants to scream my name to the world and will go leaps and bounds – so until then sorry mummy and daddy, marriage is the last thing on my mind – don't want to be where either of you are – I am single and celibate(not even a kiss, chai) and loving it – your baby is truly happy

His Name Is Joe
Sorry for the distraction today's post is actually about Music, goodness that is Joe– he is the only artist I believe has 8 awesome albums, this guy is largely underrated and is slept on– like each album was just perfect (ok let's say great) and imma share my fav songs from each – hope you like it and have a blessed week ahead – p.s I love you
From his First Album - Everything - "All or Nothing" - so old school men

From his 2nd album - All that I am - at this point its so hard to choose, this is my fav album still - but i have to go with "Good Girls"

From his 3rd album - My Name is Joe - my third fav album of his - this was just magic men - i have to go with "I Believe in you" over 'Table for Two and Stutter'

From his 4th album - Better Days  - my fourth fav album from his -this was just a really good clean album, it hit all the right notes - i have to go with "I Understand" but men "I like Sexy Girls" is such a classic

From his 5th album - And Then - omygoodness at this point i'm having orgasms - this album was just toooooooo great -  like this is the kind of album that makes me believe in perfect love (not the perfect man o) - second fav album of his - gotta to go with "And then" - but "More and More" is calling me

From his 6th album - Ain't nothing Like Me - hmmm this album take as it be - it wasnt his finest, he was trying to do some hiphop sturvs i wasnt feeling still - but out of it came one of his best songs ever "If I Was Your Man"

From his 7th album - Joe Thomas, New Man - This album i think was his most underrated album - cos it had some pure genius songs here and he went back to his pure r 'n' b/soul - my fav song still has to be "We Need to Roll" but please listen to "Why Just Be Friends"

From his 8th album - Signature - this is for the grown and sexy yo, like forget it - this album from top to bottom gets me gagas - gotta go with "Metaphor" but please listen to "Miss My Baby"

and thats it folks, orgasmic music at its finest - enjoy


  1. Love Joe too! Saw him in concert here in NY for free this past summer.

  7. Lmaooooo... See you tripping listening to the songs all over again.. :)
    Gotta admit, he's the only one I have his full discography on my ipod. Classic.
    He did say once that Rkelly stifled his rise, cos they were on the same label and R kept having words with management about marketing Joe albums.. Long tin..

    Sounds like you already know what you intend to say to momsy, it's just finding the right time to have a sit-down.
    The older we get though, the more we realise how wise our folks are..
