Death toll rises to ten at Parchman State Penitentiary

Shirley Brown: Woman to Woman (I need to ask Shirley some questions)

I’m sitting at my desk and Woman to Woman by Shirley Brown comes on my playlist…. I blame Kwon for his piece about Mokenstef’s “He’s Mine” and well…. Woman to Woman was a dumb ass song too! First of all… Shirley was not so bright. She was buying this man’s clothes. I’m assuming she bought the bed too since she threw that out there. Shirley even said the food.

These vectors can include wind, water, birds, insects, butterflies, bats, and other animals that visit flowers. We call animals or insects that transfer pollen from plant to plant “pollinators”. Honey Bees Are Pollinators. Crop yield…

Revelations From Childhood: I listened to Mokenstef’s Song “He’s Mine” as an Adult and Got Pissed Off

Ok I just want to rant for a minute. Hopefully y’all don’t get lost in the Meme even though it’s funny as fuck….  “He’s Mine” the song from MoKenStef in the 1990s gotta be a top 2 all time stupid song lyrically and situationally… I mean the lyrics went something like:  Chorus: “He’s Mine… You may have got him once but I got him all the time.”  Now that don’t make no damn sense. First of all… How? How you got him “all the time” if she got him once?…
