Whenever I feel like Life is about to overwhelm me, I take time to remember my visit to the ocean. As I stood alone at the ocean's edge, I tried to imagine where it began and where it ended! I couldn't! I tried to think on what powered the ocean as wave after wave crashed to shore! I couldn't! It was larger and more powerful than anything I was facing! It was infinite. But still it was just a mere shadow of the awesome power of the Lord!
BE Encouraged!

Minority Leader Rep. John Boehner
Recent threats against members of the Democratic Party over the Health Care Bill by certain elements representing the so-called Right wing has disturbed me! Mrs. Jaycee, can attest to this. When Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver, was spit upon the other day, I wondered why the assailant, was not punched in the mouth?
Where were his bodyguards? Well, amidst all the taunts of "Baby Killer" and calls to arms by "some so called" Bloggers that the Representatives be protested outside of their homes. That bricks should be thrown....Yada yada! I am now stating for the record "Enough is Enough!"
Minority Leader Rep. John Boehner takes the cake! Your rhetoric has been reckless and borders on an attempt to incite violence. Dig? Congress and the Senate should be UNITED against violence against anyone in "Any" legislative body!
What the Hell Johnnie? Do you think that you can't be touched? You think that you are safe and immune from violence Johnnie? Maybe you believe that the Democrats can't stir up a few "incidents" against some folks in the Republican caucus?
What?? Not the Democrats!!! They believe in Peace and Love! They love puppies and butterflies! They're Vegetarians and they care about clean air and water! The Democrats would never retaliate! They are sensible! They would never stoop so loooow as to do that!
Now, Johnnie, I know you don't believe that! So, I would suggest that you put on your "Big Boy" Pants and your Statesman Hat and Tie and stop with the borderline hate rhetoric!
The Republicans had twelve years to create the country they are always talking about! It started with two contested, contentious elections! Your candidate was appointed! You had the Presidency, the Senate, and the House! You appointed TWO Supreme Court justices and countless others to the Federal courts!
In that time, you spent the Surplus left by President Bill Clinton! You gave two tax breaks to the wealthiest group of taxpayers! You created the Patriot Act! A Giant, stinky, Turd lobbed at the Constitution and the Bill of Rights that would have made American Gangster J. Edgar Hoover say Damn!
You de-regulated, and privatized everything you could! Your President's administration proved to be one of the most secretive, and nontransparent administrations ever! And in the end after 12 years, the country's economic nerve center imploded!
More than 50% of the American Public elected Sen. Barack Obama! More than 50%!
He's opened his doors to you! He's come and held private conversations with the Republican Caucus! He has been open and inviting to your ideas! And you've re-buffed him at every turn!
You stroked the flames of hatred against that Man and his Party!
If Barack Obama never listened to the Republicans again! He's already done more in the spirit of BI-Partisanship than W. BUSH ever did!
The Republicans had their chance to create this SO- Called Limited Government! Instead, once you got POWER you cut taxes for the Rich! You started a WAR based on faulty info! YOU BLOCHED KATRINA! ONE OF THE BIGGEST NATURAL DISASTERS to ever hit an American City!
During all that YOU DIDN'T even MENTION anything close to the PEOPLE rising up! Anything close to VIOLENCE! Anything close to INSURRECTION!
YOU Sick LIL MONKEY! So Let me Warn YOU! Hell Fire is HOT and the LORD'S Judgement is close at hand!
BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

YAY! Health Care!

The Democrats actually did something good! Wait!

(Jumping up and down)

Gotta check gravity! ( Still working)

Remember, a Right Clawed Pundit, probably that Fat Drug addict, (Rush Limbaugh) stated that Health Care would be Obama's Waterloo! I, was inclined ,to agree cause the Dems who had a Super Majority acted like they were still the MINORITY party!

For the record: Congrats America! Dems finally did the right thing! For the Dems, Y'all still a bunch of P*ssies!

You almost left Obama out in the cold! At least, the Republicans, Hypocrites that they are, stick together! Instead of unity, I see, so called Blue Dog Democrats. hold up the bill! I see so called Pro Life Democrats hold up the bill!

What the Hell????

Roe versus Wade is the LAW of the Land! That was decided in 1973! Perhaps, you should start behaving like it! I understand, you may tweak the application, of it in some instances. But remember, that it's LEGAL and it's a right!

And y'all were holding the country hostage with that petty nonsense! Currying favor! If the bill would have failed, y'all should have been merrily beaten! Then, thrown out of office!

That's the reason why Democrats are percieved as Weak! You don't push your agenda! You compromise! You cooperate! You wheel and deal, even when you have the winning hand! When you have the Leverage!

P*ssies! Cowards! Do the job the People elected YOU to do! The People had a choice and they Chose YOU! Do the Job! Health Care! Jobs! Fix the Banking System! Help folks get back in their homes! Education!

Hell, if we need a New NEW DEAL.....SO BE IT! We may end up with a HUGE Deficit afterwards but we WILL have Strong Bridges! Great Roads! Great Sewage Systems! Great Communications! A strong Military! Secure Ports, Refineries and Power Plants! But most of all AMERICA will BE Better for it! Congrats again, NOW Get back to WORK you P*ssies!

2012! Fire, The Ark! A Flood! John Cuzack!

This weekend, Mrs. Jaycee and I, watched 2012 with John Cusazk! Whoo Whoo! I like John Cuzack! High Fidelity, Say Anything, Better off Dead, 16 Candles, ( He played one of Anthony Michael Hall's Geeky friends)

The Mayan Calender says the world is gonna end in 2012! In truth, the Mayan Calendar does not say the world will end in 2012. It predicts that there will be a major transition of some sort. A shake up! A change! But it does NOT predict the world will end!

But back to the movie! The Sun's radiation is heating up the Magma of the earth! Floods, Earthquakes and Fire comes down from the sky! FIRE!

Sorry I digress!

John Cuzack plays a published, but struggling writer. (Sounds familiar) Who works as a Limo driver and just so happens, to stumble onto the evacuation plan for the Human Race!

Cool! Did you notice that there were NO HUE-MAN peoples mentioned among the Heads of States? The US President, played by Danny Glover, concurs with the other G8 Heads of State! The US, Great Britain, Italy! Oh, yeah, Italy is such a large country! But you never hear any Afrikan Heads of State vote at all!

Whole Continent! Nothing! But I not mad!

Spoiler alert! Of course, Afrikan has a starring role at the END of the movie! Well at least we making progress! The Black Dude is President in the movie! Not the First to Be killed!

The Black Dude is the Smartest Dude in the Movie! Not just comedy relief! And it gives me hope that even a struggling but published writer, who drives a limo can save the world!

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

New Poetry!

Photo courtesy of the Web

A pretty face, a small waist, luscious lips and giant boobs will not fill a home with love, joy or substitute for food! All these things I love them much, main subjects of poems, tomes and tunes, but a waist will spread like jam on bread and without Love there will be gloom! Mista Jaycee

Mista Jaycee's TOP Five Crappiest Films!

Mrs. Jaycee, and I, watch movies together, on the weekend. We have a subscription to Blockbuster online, and so far, it's worked out well. I've sat through a few big budget Blockbuster movies, a chick flick, or two and a couple of seasons of Showtime's "The Tudors". ( Check this series out. Johnathan Rhys Meyers as Henry the 8th! Great)

This week my pick came up. "Jennifer's Body" starring Megan Fox.

Why Mista Jaycee?

Megan Fox is hot! She is, I think that thumbs kinda sexxxy! Moving right along, I rented the film, cause I would never spend $12 to see it in a theatre. Come on! I didn't expect it to be "Citizen Kane" just a fun hour at home.

This movie was badddddd! I mean, real bad! It Suxed! It suxed, so bad, that as a writer, I spent the time picking out the corny plot devices used in the film. Mrs. Jaycee and I, were laughing all the way through. She pointed out, that all the people and scenery, looked like something out of "Twilight"! I, pointed out, that all the guys in the film seemed to have absolutely NO common sense, so long as they had a chance, to see Megan Fox nekked!

"Wait! think dude, you a comic book nerd who listens to emo. She's a cheerleader who just led you into a vacant construction site." Run! You idiot! Run! But NOOOOOO! Then,(Spoiler alert) she eats him!

This movie was soooo bad that it inspired a list! A List! A LIST! Plus, Megan, Mrs. Jaycee says "You owe her some Money for this film!"

I present Mista Jaycee's TOP Five Crappiest Films! Now, let's rule out such cinematic suxutude as "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" Or the Tromaville catalog, cause those films, don't take themselves, seriously.

Number 5. Eddie Murphy's Nutty Professor II. The Klumps!

The Nutty Professor was funnie, refreshing and original. Dr. Sherman Klump was a wonderful character, that allowed Eddie, to really riff off, his talent for costumes and voices. Jada Pinkett Smith was great! I love the scene where Dave Chappelle takes off his Hat in the Comedy Club! Classic!

But the Klumps was a great idea on paper! It wasn't funnie! Janet Jackson, is not that great an actress, it was painful at times to watch. But the film was just plain mean spirited! Damn! again, DAMN!

Moving along on our list!

Number 4. Trois starring Kenya Moore, Gary Dourdan and Gretchen Palmer

I wrote a poem starring Kenya Moore. I did. I went to see "Trois" in the theatre. I was completely alone. True Story! ALONE!

Kenya and Gary, play a buppie couple, moving up in the world. She, suffers Night Terrors that she won't share with her husband. Her husband, (Gary Dourdan) is an associate in a law firm with a regular ladies addiction. He has them for lunch! At work, he's friendly to a young male intern, who he drinks with, hangs out with, and shares his secrets with. Every time, Gary invites dude to the house, he always declines. (More on that later)

Gary and Kenya's bedroom is a lil stale. Gary, gets the bright idea, that they should have a threesome. Gary's buddy/intern has the "perfect" girl for them. Gretchen Palmer comes in and they have a night of unbridled carnal pleasure. Gretchen is diggin Kenya, and Kenya feeling fancy free, begins to enjoy Gretchen. Now, Gary is getting a lil pissed, cause this lil lady, is about to steal his wife. At work, things aren't better, as Gary is bitten by a poisonous snake, someone has placed in his car. Pictures of his "Lunch breaks" make it home to Kenya, and Gretchen and Kenya are still "friends".

The movie ends with Kenya, never having told Gary, that she is a domestic abuse survivor, who was almost killed by her college baseball playing boyfriend. That's what the nightmares are about. The Intern, turns out to BE the abusing boyfriend, who has gone so far as to follow her, finish school, go to law school and gets a job, as an intern to her Husband. When the intern finally does visit their home, he reveals that it is HE who sent the pictures, sabotaged the business lunch, planted the snake, and He did it all for Kenya! "All for you Baby Girl"

Kenya picks up a pistol and shoots.....herself in the stomach, to BE free from this bastard, who's beating the living poop out of husband. LAME! LAME!

But this film still does not top the list! Oh, it sux, even more! EVEN MORE!

Number 3 Jennifer's Body! That's right! It's number 3! Only #3! It may have inspired the list but it's not bad enough to BE # 1! It's here, cause of the lame plot, the silly dialogue and the unimaginative plot! Last, but not least, cause there's no real nude scene in the film! NONE! Just the customary Girl on Girl soft core Lesbian scene that we knew was gonna happen. We just knew it! Crappy lines like "We always sleep together when we have slumber parties." (GAG) Ok, that was a bit much, but it still suxed!

Now, Number 2 was debated! Oh, yes! See, My number 1 film was "Cappuccino", but then, Mrs. Jaycee and I, remembered, Eddie Murphy's NORBUT! I mean, Norbit! And we went round and round, until we had a Winner.

Number 2 belongs to "Cappuccino!"
Novelist/Screenwriter, Odie Hawkins, upon viewing this film, stated that it was soooo bad that it was good. You can use it to teach other people, what NOT to do! Yeah, it's that bad! is an independent film, made on a small budget, with unknown actors and a unknown director. I give it props, cause it wasn't a gangster/one drug deal and we out movie or a mindless coon show. It attempted to BE a suspense thriller. Novelist Eric Jerome Dickey wrote the screenplay. Not one of EJD's better works. (For that go read the real good book Sister Sister) But it was an independent movie! Everyone involved has to be able to put work on their resumes. I ain't mad! Do your thing!

So now.....

Number 1. Eddie Murphy's Norbit! Starring Eddie, Eddie, and Eddie, Katt Williams, Fast Eddie Griffith and cute lil Thandie Newton.

This is NOT an independent film, with unknown actors, a low budget or a new director. This is Blockbuster budget film, co-written, by one of the best comedic actors, to come along in the last 25 years! If ever, there was a film that offended, or should have offended, every Black Woman in the WORLD! It's Norbit!

"Rasputia" is a nightmare! Grossly obese, obnoxious, and mean to a fault! She's every stereotype ever leveled at Black Women all rolled into one character. It was just awful! Eddie and Charlie, Y'all got a Mama! What the hell, kinda hatred, y'all got towards the Sistas who ain't "Black White Girls"? You got "Rasputia" then you got "Thandie Newton's" light skinned, ultra thin, body as a counterpart. I'm sure, y'all got cousins that's dark skinned, heavyset, that look something closer to "Rasputia" than "Thandie!" . Did you mean to hurt "Them"? Damn!

Eddie, my man! You did some great work with "Boomerang" showcasing Black talent, in ways we've never seen it committed to modern film. But this, was just bullshit! I don't know what made you think, this was funnie?!!!!
Was someone high? Was the money that good? Damn Eddie!

"I guess you'll look back on this and file this one into the it seemed like a good idea at the time category, huh!

Well, now I'd like to open the floor, to your suggestions. Perhaps, you would like to watch these films. I say, do it with friends! You can never have enough good discussions, and these films, will create some "hellafied" conversation. All you need is some good buttered popcorn and it's on!

Mista Jaycee Talks Health!

GURU from Gangstarr

Last night, I heard that Guru (Gifted Universal Rhymes Unlimited) MC for Seminal Hip-Hop Group Gangstarr had suffered a heart attack, lapsed into a coma and was in surgery. Later, I heard he had died. Thankfully, his death was only a rumor, so keep praying for the Brother's recovery. Well, after reading, that he was only 43 years old, it got me to thinking about my own health and mortality.

We never talk about health for real! I think, that we've been conditioned, to accept premature Death! When Pac and Biggie were murdered it shocked us but it didn't surprise us. When Mac Dre was murdered it didn't surprise us. When Cowboy (Furious Five) and Big L were murdered, again, no surprise.

Jay Dee or JDilla from the Soulquarians

But, it seems to me, that when "Buffy The Human Beat Box" (Fat Boys) died of a heart attack we just moved on. Buff was a really heavy guy, but we didn't change anything about our own diets or lifestyle. When "Big Punisher" died of a heart attack. His weight was cited ,and we moved on. Could it be that we ignored our own health risks cause Big Pun was SOOOO Big? He was Big but if he ate the same things we are eating such as Fried foods, high in salt and calories shouldn't we be concerned?

Buffy The Human Beat Box From the Fat Boys

We moved on.

"Big Pun rumored to be 540 pounds"

When MC Breed died from kidney failure it didn't really spark discussions on Hypertension, Diet, Exercise, Smoking (Cigarettes, Cigars, Weed) and Diet. (High Fat, High Salt High Sugar). It should have though. He was sick for a long time and he died Young.

How many young Black Men and Women have died young, or are currently, suffering from hypertension and Diabetes? How often do we see a doctor? Have you ever wondered why we don't see any Black Folks in Gym commercials? I've never seen a Bally's ad that targeted the Black Community have you?

Stress should be a major concern for Black Folks but have you seen any ads promoting meditation? Any ads promoting Tai Chi or Yoga to Black Folks?

Me neither!

How bout Mental Illness? How about chemical imbalances? Oh...Black Folks don't talk about that but we do suffer. Baatin from Slum Village suffered from Bi-Polar depression. Jay Dee or JDilla died from complications from Lupus. Do you see any ads highlighting Lupus or similar disorders in the Black community? Any highlighting treatment? What about Sickle Cell Anemia? TBOZ from TLC suffers from it. It primarily affects Black Folks but we see no commercials, hear of no treatments, hear of no new tests, or how it affects our community now.

Am I mistaken?

Has anyone ever done a study comparing how many rappers are dying from hypertension, diabetes, kidney failure, stroke or other diseases?

I lost two close friends to High Blood Pressure and Diabetes. MC LAW (The Lyrical Ace of Wisdom) from Long Beach's Droppin the Funk died from complications of Juvenile Diabetes and High Blood Pressure. He had Type 1 Diabetes from childhood and was insulin dependent. He loss his eyesight, suffered nerve damage and his kidneys failed. He was talented and so full of Life. He was 28 years old.

Mr. Snappz from Coolio's backup band (Gangstas and Thugs) suffered a stroke, and succumbed two months later, from complications. He had untreated high blood pressure. He exercised regularly, lifting weights and doing callisthenics's. He played basketball. He wasn't overweight. He smoked weed regularly and he drank alcohol. His diet was a young Man's diet consisting of alot of fast food, although, he could cook and did when he was able. He was 34 years old!

Both LAW and Mr. Snappz were too young to have died from these health problems.

Ok, so we lose more Black Men to Gun Play at the hands of one another in the short run but we've lost far more by not aggressively tackling our health and communities health. I know one thing...We should just accept losing so many folks because of bad health.

Vegetarian/Metaphyscian KRS-1

KRS-1 was one of the first MC's to announce that he was a Vegetarian. Later Common, announced that he had become a vegetarian as well. I heard that NELLY and the St. Lunatics were all Vegetarians as well. Go figure. Various high profile Pop Stars like Beyonce and Alicia Keys have personal trainers and nutritionists and cite various diets highlighting their physiques, but has then translated, to the masses of Black Women and Men? But I don't think it would be unfair to say that the media has promoted vegetarians, raw foods as marginalized or as a Hippie Thang.


Just for the sake of argument Lenda Murray is the most successful Female body builder winning the Ms. Olympia, a record eight times, but has this been promoted to the Black Community, even minimally? Lee Haney surpassed Arnold as the most successful Mr. Olympia, winning the contest eight times, and now Ronnie Coleman is set to surpass even that!

Eight Time Ms. Olympia Lenda Murray

But Lenda Murray looks too buffed out Mista Jaycee?

So! The point is that she lifts weights, and that she's the most successful in her sport yet she's the least promoted. We have seen plenty of Sistas who have gotten in the gym that are not buffed out but has it translated to the masses?

Just something to think about?

Long Life without good health is a curse!

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!
