March 14th is now officially "Steak and Blowjob Day". ~ Simple, effective and self explanatory. Men work extremely hard to satisfy their lovers on Valentine's Day, so March 14th is a joyous opportunity to repay the favour.
When I first read the definition of this alleged holiday (there above) I was literally “blown away ".. (No pun intended - LOL). After more web surfing it came quite clear. This is a million dollar enterprise wrapped in one day. March 14th falls exactly one month after Valentine's Day its when boxes of chocolates and jewelry are exchanged for the things men hold dear.
Lucky boyfriends and husbands receive the 2 things they really want... Now who can say all men want red meat and special kisses but there's no turning back now. The name has been coined.
So what are your thoughts? Do men deserve their own Valentine's Day and should it go with potential “lockjaw” and A1 Sauce ? Have a steak and think on it...
The Ghetto Twiinz have done it again in their new video, " Money Talks ".
Last year I starred alongside the infamous identical twins in Lucky Johnson's stageplay " BOUNCE " and was thouroughly delighted. How their personalities mesh implicate an unbreakable unity displayed on wax and in real life. Sisters tackling hard hitting issues together as one. Something they've done on stage for over 3 decades. Such strength to withstand the game that long takes street savvy and gut skill. Which is no short of what goes on in their new video, " Money Talks ".
Filmed in their childhood neighborhood, " The 9th Ward " director @YurkFilms captured the twins spewing vivid lyrics of money, power success and how to have it all. Growing up in New Orleans I can appreciate the candid approach bringing in the landscape of my beloved city. Watch it for yourself. Congrads Tre` and Ton`, your passion for capturing the pulse of Hip Hop is so Potent!!! ~ Thais`
During Superbowl while just walking around soaking up the scene I met the coolest group of young future leaders of film. All in my hometown of New Orleans there was Lonely Eskimo Productions posting fliers on bus stops, tree barks and more. They had such devotion, it was encouraging. We began to talk and this awesome pic happen. Here at LipServiceInk.com Literacy Magazine we'll be keeping you up with their progress as each runs to silver screen.
Known to paralyze any stage he walked on with those signature " White Eyes " and a heart of gold - Mr. Magic, age 37 and his beautiful loving wife of 13 years, Chasity died March 1st 2013 in a fatal car accident. Their 13yr old daughter, Twila Wise Johnson survived the crash with only a broken arm.
Everyone knew who he was on sight, an artist that would prove the test of time staying relevant well over 20 years. He gained massive amounts of " industry wisdom " and was admired by his peers for sharing it so freely. Still booked for shows and more Mr. Magic was also a traveling panel guest favorite who lectured on " The Business ". His raspy Southern tone dripped of New Orleans and was easily detected on any song. To know Mr. Magic was to love Mr. Magic but how did it all began ?
In 1998 his debut album soared to #15 on the charts titled, " Sky's The Limit " and from then on it was clear to see Mr. Magic would be a Southern Rap star. In an ironic twist Gospel had lots to do with his emerge. One of Awood's driving forces was his mother, popular Gospel singer, Jaunita Brooks.
Bio -Awood Johnson " Mr. Magic "proudly hails from the Ninth Ward of New Orleans and is sometimes addressed as "Mr. Ninth Ward." The ninth ward gained global popularity being one of the hardest hit areas for Hurricane Katrina. Mr. Magic popularized the initials "CTC", which stand for "cross-the-canal," referring to the Industrial Canal, that runs through the 9th Ward. Awood Johnson first worked the city's underground circuit, before signing with Master P's No Limit Records label thanks to the mogul's brother, C-Murder. Awood met C-Murder at a party and impressed him with his rapping ability.
Mos Def & Mr. Magic on the Panel at Industry Influence
Magic was intended to become part of TRU, but Master P insisted that he instead rap on the parent label with a broader fan base. The relationship came to a bitter end after most of the other original No Limit artists had already left, and Magic has since spoken out bitterly against Master P and his business practices. Magic then signed with Body Head Bangerz, a rap group founded by Roy Jones, Jr. this cult hit was born and the rest is
In a matter of weeks I learned dropping the name " Gus Bennett " instantly throws you into a new realm of " Gray ". At a Zulu Ball event with my gal pal Leatrice Dupree every " ting " was perfect and the mood was ultra fun. Walking table to table then sitting down at our own she says in a classy tone sipping on the finest wine,
" Its time for another shoot with Gus ! "
I thought to myself... Who thinks about a photoshoot at a time like this ? She was dressed to the 9, having a chill drink and a photo shoot comes up... This Gus guy must be something pretty awesome. Fast forward a few days later at the studio of my gal pal C Freedom. I was in awe looking at her shots of New Orleans so asked what's the ULTIMATE photo she's ever taken. Without thinking twice she points to the one hanging highest on the wall and says,
" I was shooting a model under the bridge and Gus pulls up asking if I needed help. "
Then I thought... " Now if someone pulls up in the middle of your shoot and you are happy, this must be one cool man with a ' camera plan ' LOL --- Ladies adore his eye and its more than just ladies.... Essence Magazine has proudly called him " Photography Guru " for almost 20 years. All this and he doesn't even use business cards, his work is all generated by word of mouth. His camera has professionally captured every Essence Music Festival. Now thats Photo Snap Snap Power... All in all Gus Bennett has shot just about every Celebrity and shoots them all one way... GRAY.
Janet Jackson, Ms. Jackson if ya nasty... lol
How he defines his signature method of shoots is refreshing to say the least. Gray is his color of choice because it isn't black or white.. Its gray. It's that one simple yet complex sentence that has women speaking of his work in grocery stores, salons and even Zulu Balls over fine wines.I said all of this to say.. Im going ' #GusGray ' !!
Mr. Bennett wants to use my www.ThaisFlowers.com in an original shoot concept and his treatment alone BLEW ME COMPLETELY AWAY !! Details soon, somebody pinch me, Im going #GusGray !!! ~ Thais`
