With My $600 Stimulus, I’m going to buy an LLC entitled: “STFU Telling Me To Buy an LLC”

Twitter LLC’s power is growing. Have you felt it? They are coming. And there is nothing we can do to stop them. When America and their ghetto ass “Here Nigga, Damn” Stimulus Act gets passed by Congress and signed by the President, our timelines will be filled with “Instead of buying that PS5, you should be buying 5 LLCs” posts. But y’all know what? Fuck it. I’m going to take the advice of the numb nuts, for once, and purchase an LLC. And I already have an idea of what…

My Ode to Detroit – a flashback Christmas story

Once upon a time, in 1990, my dad decided to leave Cape Town, South Africa, in the heart of Apartheid and explore a Fellowship at Wayne State University in Detroit.

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey

Ok, so check it… I am NOT your chick-flick, Hallmark, Lifetime movie-lover. I also HATE Christmas movies (I make exceptions for The Preacher’s Wife with Whitney and This Christmas). And even though I do like a good musical every now and again, I wasn’t aware that Jingle Jangle would have singing and dancing, so I went into the movie with no expectations. I figured it couldn’t be too bad with a stellar cast that included Phylicia Rashad, Forest Whitaker, Anika Noni Rose, and Keegan-Michael Key. Thirty minutes in I was…
