Every Love Has An Ending


I remember back when I was a child, I made up a song called “Every Love Has An Ending”.

I can also remember hitting record and singing into my cute and colorful boom box like I was a superstar. The song was about a cheating man who broke a woman’s heart. I can’t remember how old I was, but I’m sure I was younger than thirteen.

It had a nice lil’ groove to it and the lyrics spoke well beyond my years and experience. I wonder where in the hell I got the notion from?

Were my psychic abilities kicking in? Or was it just my writing skills coming out? Either way, it would seem that, at least in my experience, that sadly every love does have an ending contrary to the Hollywood happily ever after fantasy that has been pimped to us for a lifetime.

#MJWeAreOne – Things Michael Jackson Taught Me


If Michael Jackson were alive today he’d be celebrating his 55th birthday. As a child raised by a single mother, Michael was my obsession, boyfriend and father-figure.

Here are some of the things Michael Jackson taught me as I was growing up!

Love Everyone

Through his words and music Michael Jackson taught me that we are all one, we are equal, and it don’t matter if you’re Black or White.

Take Care of the Earth

Songs like Earth Song and Heal the World hit the point home that we have to take care of our planet.

Wait To Have Sex

Well, he didn’t really teach me not to have sex, but because I was so in love with him as a teenager and no boy could hold a candle to him, I kept my legs closed for a long time!

Thanks Michael – I love and miss you!

Black Music Month Spotlight: Black Alley


Soul Garage Band, Black Alley (members: Kacey- Lead Singer; Animal – Drummer; Josh – Bass; Eric – Lead Guitar; Hope – Keys; Mack – Keys; Beedy – Percussion)

Why is celebrating Black music important to you?

(Kacey) Celebrating black music is important because it allows for a period of reflection.  Seeing the changes and the growth of music is phenomenal.  Black music is so diverse and yet so relatable. The expression and emotion of black music is so powerful.

(Beedy) Black music is beautiful, so cool and so inspiring to me.  Black Music made me the musician I am today.

What do you think of the current state of the music industry?

(Kacey) I think that artists who have a true love and passion for their craft have a certain transparency about them.  There is some music that has infiltrated the industry that will soon be forgotten.  But true music and the love for the art will live forever.  There are so many talented musicians and artists around the world, I think soon, they will put on Main Street again.

What is your favorite song currently?

(Eric) Wiz Khalifa – The Code

What do you love almost as much as music?

(Josh) The only thing I can say I love as much as music is being a father! My baby girl Janaya Mone’ is my world! She changed my life for the better and she’s helping me to understand what a father truly is.

Who influences you most?

(Hope) Musically I’m influenced the most by Herbie Hancock and Peterson.

A world without music is…?

(Eric) George Orwell’s 1984

(Mack) A world with out music would be less creative; everything would be serious and dry.  Without music there wouldn’t be any dancing, instruments, or even singing. With out music we lose everything that is associated it. Bottom line,  the world would be a boring place.

Women’s History Month Spotlight: Natalia ‘Saw Lady’ Paruz

Name and occupation:

Natalia Paruz – musical saw player and busker

What do you love most about being a woman?

I like being a woman in what originally was considered a man’s world: when I started to play the musical saw I was the only woman performing at concerts with about 20 men playing the same instrument. It gave me a feeling of being a pioneer. Today, I am happy to say, there are many women musical saw players, and I feel like I opened up a path.

Have you had to deal with much sexism in your industry?

Most buskers (street musicians ) are men, as are most musical saw players. When I first started playing the saw I heard remarks such as ‘you are very good, especially for a woman’, but these remarks came only from the older generation of musical saw players (and most of them are no longer alive today). As a busker, I’ve had a few men confuse my profession with the other oldest street profession, and suggest that if I want to make money I should come to a hotel room with them. However, since I hold a saw in my hands, I mostly receive a lot of respect on the street 🙂

Who or what inspires you most? Strong women. I was fortunate to grow up with many talented, wise, strong willed women around me, who fought for their cause, didn’t give up, and contributed to the world. My grandmother who was a pioneer who helped build a settlement in the middle of nowhere, my mother who founded the J.S. Bach Center, my Ballet teacher who started Ballet classes and a company in a place that not only didn’t have any dance classes but people didn’t even know the importance of it, and musician Clara Rockmore who single handedly elevated the art of making beautiful music with a theremin – the first electronic musical instrument.

Something about you that would surprise us:

I started making a chewing-gum paper chain when I was 12 years old, and haven’t stopped since. The chain has only paper of gum that I chewed myself, and if I stretch it out it is probably a block long.

Advice for women entrepreneurs:

Application, diligence and cheerful persistence!

Ask Dangerous Lee – What do you think about the Chris Brown and Rihanna musical collaborations?

Q: What do you think about the Chris Brown and Rihanna musical collaborations?

Shana T.

Detroit, MI

A: I have not heard either track and I really don’t care to listen, but I think that those two have made amends and appearing on each others track is a way to show that they respect each other musically, but, and this is a big but…Rihanna gives up a little bit of her dignity in the process because it makes Chris Brown look good, but it makes Rihanna look like a fool.  I think it’s also an attempt to tell the world to get over it because they have. They’re like the Ike and Tina of our generation.

We also must not forget that celebrities do most things to make money and get attention. This situation is no different. I think Chris Brown is a young man of horrible character and that he needs to focus on working on his temper and attitude instead of his next Michael Jackson inspired dance move or wack techno club laced track. His actions in the media and on Twitter since beating up Rihanna have proved that he is “off” a tad bit. If he wants everyone to forgive and forget what happened he needs to clean up his act, but instead he chooses to act like an ass. He’s a man that beat up a woman and that’s something that leaves a bad taste in many peoples mouth. For many it is unforgivable and unforgettable.

Of course, all the Chris Brown stans love him and have even publicly and ignorantly stated that they would let Chris Brown beat them up just to spend time with him. There are so many desperate, sad, and sick young women that support him, which says a lot about their priorities and what they are willing to put up with in a relationship with a man. However, girls liking the Bad Boy is nothing new. For me, Chris Brown can kick rocks and kiss my ass. I’ve never been impressed with him musically or otherwise. He’s not even on my radar.
