Saturday Night #BlackLivesMatter Protest Party! (Part 6)

This is how I am feeling right now.

In memory of Korryn Gains.

"Keep believing. Keep marching. Keep building. Keep raising your voice. Every generation has the opportunity to remake the world.” - Barack Obama, July 2018

PS - HAPPY BIRTHDAY (July 7) to Dr. Spo!


Kicking it old school again this week.








Homeboyz, so RECOGNIZE!

  1. Slightly over 100 days before you and the rest of the world can REALLY celebrate - though I remain most apprehensive about what he'll do between election [which surely can't be his own] and inauguration day. With the Stone news, which is hardly a surprise, he's certainly not signalling any slowdown in typically outlandish behaviour.

    Btw - 'Ta' for your kind comment to me on JayGee's blog, though I am beginning to feel a bit of a 'Caspar Milquetoast' [I'm guessing they still say that] ;-]

    Have a fine w/e.

    1. we feel the same way, dear raybeard. uncle joe is leading in all the national polls, but we must not become complacent. RTG and I ordered our mail-in ballots for november 3 last week. as soon as we get them, we will fill them out and send them in.

      I do wish you and squire gray could have a visit in person.

      hope you and the pussies are safe and well, as we all are in this house.

    2. I love JayGee to bits through his blogs, W.Q., though as far as a face-to-face is concerned I think we're be better off at a distance. I regret to say it but in our domestic attitudes and social lives I'm sure we'd be about as compatible as, well, as BLOTUS and intelligence. But never say never. A coffee and a sandwich would definitely be nice.

      All fine and [as far as I'm aware] Covid-free here at home, including the furry ones. Trust you're in same position.

  2. Mark Ronson (chuckle, chuckle) gets top billing. That Sarah Vaughn piece is a real gem. What a voice.

  5. OMG. I just adore this list. Odetta! Betty Everett. Dinah Washington and Sarah Vaughan! Nancy Wilson. And then.. you go and make me cry. Charlie Pride was my Dad's favorite country artist. Favorite. Which was a big deal, because Black men were not welcome in Country Music at the time. I always looked at that as a sign that my Dad was evolving. And by the time I came out of the closet, he had. Thanks for sharing all these. I hope someone kisses you this morning, cuz you an angel!

  6. Mississippi Goddamn is a classic! I love, love, love Nina Simone’s voice.
    Sister Rosetta was the bomb! The origins of Rock and a Roll. 😎.
    I had to google Klein Gaines. It’s sad that these deaths caused by police brutality are so, so many that we have to refresh our knowledge of the man, many cases.
    I love that you’re giving me a musical education.

    XoXo

    1. I love educating people as I get educated as well. we HAVE to say their names so that our Black brothers and sisters are not forgotten.

  7. Thanks for including O.C. Smith. I've always loved his voice. I used to really get into "Hickory Holler's Tramp". I'm a bit offbeat that way. Sassy Sarah Vaughn, always a pleasure. Once again, another great set. Carebear, you effin' rock!

    1. thank you, duchess. any requests? hope you are feeling better and that you and BH are staying safe.

      Delete
    2. Requests? Oh Carebear, you let the genie out of the bottle! There is a country song (don't judge me) from 1968. Its message is even more relevant today. Skip a Rope by Henson Cargill.
      Free Your Mind by En Vogue is apropos also, though I prefer Giving Him Something He Can Feel, just because of the, well, feel of it. I suppose I could just google these, but I enjoy how you share.

    3. "skip a rope" - I know that song well; I'mma sitting here singing it in my head.

      I also know "giving him something he can feel"...I find that song...what's the word...objectifying.

      I'll go listen to "free your mind" now.

      thanks for the suggestions! SMOOCH!

  8. A good list this week....but for me the winners are Sister Rosette Tharpe and Dinah Washington.

  9. "What Kind of Fool"! OMG...I'd forgotten that one for sure. Have a great weekend, nice lady.

  10. I sat here and watched all of them, but Uptown Funk has my vote. The Delfonics - La-La Means I Love You made me think of my cousin. I think she used to like this song or someone I knew liked it and played it a lot. I smiled so the memory wasn't a bad one.

    1. I do like to feature mah homies cause we made some great sounds from the 50s-80s.

  11. It’s a tough choice but Nancy Wilson had a beautiful voice.
    Thanks for reminding me. Love to you two.
