If it is at all possible to OD on concerts, I think I may have accomplished that in 2017. When I tally up the number of concerts I attended in 2017 alone, it outnumbers the total numbers of concerts I attended in the 5 years prior to 2017. It is very possible the reason I attended so many concerts this year is because of the press passes and VIP treatment; but I mean c'mon son, it's VIP.
Over the years rap music has gotten a bad...well, rap. The music that has been seen as the voice of the streets has been accused of being misogynistic and sexist toward women. Traditionally, rap music's hard hitting, defiant nature didn't really leave much space for anyone to express love toward the ladies. I mean that's what R&B music was for right?
As of late, there's been a lot of discussion about whether or not Black History Month should be done away with. This is in large part due to some comments made by Clueless actress, Stacey Dash, on Fox News recently. I won't say I disagree with her entirely; I wish there wasn't a need for a Black History Month. In a perfect world, there wouldn't have been a need for it to begin with. This world, however, is far from perfect and Black History Month is still needed. So we've comprised this list of five reasons Black History Month is still very much necessary in 2016.
With just a few days left until Christmas, I have to be quite honest...this year doesn't exactly feel like Christmas season. I don't know, maybe because it feels like spring time outside, or maybe because people just don't get in the "holiday spirit" anymore, or because I don't have cable so I haven't been bombarded with Christmas ads every time I turn on my television. Who knows? All I know is that it's a few days before Christmas and I'm definitely not as excited about this time of year as I was when I was a kid.
