Sanjaya…. NEEDS to go!!!

Posted in General on Thursday, March 29, 2007 by Yatta

I watch American Idol.. I took a hiatus from it last year but i needed some comic relief. Auditions are over and they so-called weeded out the better singers. I watched the episode when Sanjaya and his sister Shyamali auditioned and they never sounded that bad.Shyamali and Sanjaya That was then and this is now…. Shyamali is gone 😦 and Sanjaya is still missing the gauntlet week after week. What do people see in this guy?!?!?! After wathcing him for a few weeks i have placed him a the “Decent Bathroom Singer” This yute sounds bad!!! I would NEVER try to ‘buy’ his album. I think it was Monday or Tuesday when he performed with this idol_sajaya_1.png…. I don’t even know what kind of hair style to call it. As i look on it I guess you can call it mohawk.idol_sajaya_2.png

What is it that is keeping this go on my TV?!?!?! I guess some females would say the 17 yo looks good BUT dammit man.. his is messing up my ear drums!!! Come on people let this go go home with his family and sister next week.

We need to make room for Latecia, Melinda and Jordin. There are others i like but i think for the final 3 it may be these 3… i guess we’ll see.


A Strong Poem

Posted in Personal on Saturday, March 24, 2007 by Yatta

I know this poem has been through the grinder on the net and in emails. Even so… I really like it. A friend sent it to me a about 6 months ago (one of the VERY few FWD mails I actually read…. Glad I did)

Read it and comment on it…. and then truly ask yourself…. Do You Qualify?

A Sista’s Poem and a Brother’s Response


Do you qualify to be the man I need you to be?
Will you be able to recognize the things you
need to see? Will you be able to understand, that
I’m a good woman and in my life I need a good man?
Do you qualify?


Do you qualify to fertilize my unproduced seeds?
Can you fulfill, as I can, all of our needs?
Can you put me in my place if you see I am slippin’?
Can you talk to me, wholeheartedly?
Not constantly trippin??
Do you qualify?


Do you qualify to be called all mine?
Can you leave the other women and temptations
behind? Can you come to me with your problems and
not wait until it’s too late?
Can you stand up and admit if you made a mistake?
Do you qualify?



Do you qualify to be the honest ebony man I
would want you to be?
Would you be able to look me in my eyes and
admit your feelings to me?
Could you take me in your arms and make love to
me all night long?
Can you be sensitive and still be strong?



Do you qualify?


Do you qualify to be my friend as well as my
lover? Can you put our love before any other?
Can you cherish me as if I were Diamonds &
Gold? Can you make me feel like I’m the last
woman you’ll ever hold?
Do you qualify?


Do you qualify to be called a good man?
If I have doubts can you reassure me and understand?
Can your love intoxicate me as if I were High?
To be in my life, I need to know,





The Brother’s Response:

You ask, do I qualify.
Can I fulfill your needs and become the man you need me to be?
My sister, are you prepared for what you’ve asked for?
Can you handle the responsibility?

Can you accept that, by GOD, I am the chosen
one, the authority, the comforter, and the head?
Will you submit and willingly follow my path?
Or will you fight with me instead?


If I am your King, will you treat me as such?
Will I get the best of your beauty and poise?
Or will I be subjected to an appearance
neglected, and checked with some serious noise?
When I talk, will you listen?
I mean whole heartedly and feel me?
Or will you rush me just to make your point too?
Can I be the man at all times? Even when it hurts?
Or is it just when it’s convenient for you?


Can you love me for me, and not who you wish I could be?
Will you see the strong Black Man within?
Or will you always remind me of the all
the past brothers behind me and make me pay for their sins?

If I don’t send you flowers the day your co-worker
received some, will you know that I love you still?
Or will my good name be uttered along with those other doggish brothers?
Will you question if my commitment is real?

Will you be patient and teach me to understand you,
and allow my knowledge of your needs to grow?
Or will you shut me out when I ask, Baby
what’s wrong?
Or will you respond with, “Well a REAL man would know!”

When we first met, what was it that caught your
eye? Was it my mind, my heart, my personality?
Or was it my suit, or my job, or do you love
what I drive, instead of what’s driving me?

Yes I can, and I will, make love to you from midnight to the dawning of the sun.
But, if I tell you I’m tired, will you trust
I’m sincere or believe that there must be another one?
My sister, I love you and my heart can be yours. No woman could lead me astray
But like you, I have needs, so I beg of you, please, in this love thang meet me half way.

In life’s tough times I’ll hold you, in the rough times I’ll mold you;
your simplest wish will be my command.
My life is yours if need be.
Yes you can fully bleed me, and when hell comes, in your place, I’ll stand.

A good relationship is a powerful institution that must be built on a foundation of two.
So to answer your question,
YES sister, I do qualify.



Now, more importantly…do you?



For some that may be a long read… I think it may have been worthed it though. The only part I’m not too sure of in this poem is… “Can you accept that, by GOD, I am the chosen one, the authority, the comforter, and the head? Will you submit and willingly follow my path? Or will you fight with me instead?” It should be a 2-way street relationship.. the 2 of you should be heading to a common goal. Not one following the other? It is called PARTNERSHIP …… I would not want it any other way.

Beryl is soooo easy now!!!

Posted in General on Tuesday, March 20, 2007 by Yatta

Ok I remember a few months ago.. to get Beryl (aka compiz) up and running on one of my *nix boxes took some time and some tinkering. NOW they went and made the installation of beryl easy as…….. running a simple shell script.

I was wondering the other day how come SOOO much ppl were finally using beryl now. As i browsed around a little I found my answer right on the Beryl wiki page.

Here is somethign i saw on YouTube showing a few of the differences with Vista and Beryl/compiz.

Vista looks nice… BUT it still has some way to go before catching up to what Beryl can do. Opensource can be sooo cool at times. 😀

I must add though.. with all the beryl prettiness it is nice BUT after awhile…that is all it is… is pretty. The transparency can come in handy for all the programmers out there though.

Google and LiveTV

Posted in General on Tuesday, March 20, 2007 by Yatta

Ok. I just found out about Google’s new Theme they have for their personalized Home Page. I never would of knew about it so quickly if i never checked my blog tab that i have on my google homepage and read Taylor2nd blog about the enhancement. It’s a small enhancement but it does make the page seem more personal. I also found a gadget for the Home Page that can let you watch LiveTV of selected channels… MTV, CNN, etc.

Don’t these ppl want you to leave in front of your PC?? Ohh well guess not…. even thought this is a nice little gadget.

Dog Parent….

Posted in General on Sunday, March 11, 2007 by Yatta

You know I’ve always stated I never liked dogs…. I still don’t. As a matter of fact I don’t really like animals on a whole. If I write that can SOMEONE please tell me why the hell I took these 2 dogs to the doctor? When I’ m not even taking myself to the doctors, believe me, I need to ’cause my blood pressure isn’t getting any better on average it’s 152/103.

Since Streaks, the female, wasn’t really eating i was……… dare i say worried over the bitch?!?!?! Granted Streaks was not Midnight (my dog…. still feels weired saying it) but she has started to grow on me. I had my sister follow me to the vet.. she wanted to take streaks from day one to get vaccinated but i sort  of talked her out of it since she is a true mongrel. There was no way I can have one dog get sick on me on the other be fine. Make a long story short the little Dr. visit cost me about $2,500 I had to double up on everything… GRRRRRRR. I dont know if it’s mind over matter BUT Streaks seems to almost be herself again, but she still not really eating. She does fight with Midnight like the two  of them are the same size. Midnight is twice her size…. that doesn’t mean she backs down one bit though she fights with him like they are one. I must say though it does seem healthy when the dogs have another dog to mess with.

Taking care of a dog is alot of work… I can imagine if I really wanted the dog as a pet!!!! LAAAAWWWDDD the pressure that would be. Right now to clean out the kennel and feed them twice a day is killing me.

The naked body scanners???

Posted in General on Monday, March 5, 2007 by Yatta

A fren just sent me this link, about 1hr ago, Digital Penetration Invasion of the naked body scanners. Now when I first saw this I thought it was some comic strip thingie. Nope.. the shit is real…. an x-ray machine that see through clothing!!! So now the security people can see ALL that you have to offer.

The government needs to look under your clothes. Ceramic knives, plastic guns, and liquid explosives have made metal detectors obsolete. Carry-on bags are X-rayed, so the safest place to hide a weapon is on your body.

Now it doesn’t even matter if you wear clean under garments when you travel.. just wear whatever hell you please.. eight way they are going to see EVERYTHING!! This brings a whole new meaning to “Big Brother is watching you”
