  1. we cycling here too, I see all kinds of stuff now, I dont know what those one wheel skate boards are, but I have seen a ton of people on them, they move fast as hell
  2. Janet likes her driving in her SUV, I think back in the day she drove a Jeep in Cali we forget Janet is a Tomboy at heart, people enjoy everyday "things" like a good drive, I sometimes enjoy driving my Jeep it's nice
  3. I just saw this pic online but did not know it was this recent. I wonder how her shoes are made if they take regular kicks and just add two inches
  4. thank you so much for cleaning the show up, I hadn't watched it in sooooo long it's nice to see that show again
  5. I did some research and Ozark (yes it exists) is a known hub for White Supremacists, the area is accurately portrayed
  6. Ozark got better, it was leaning towards some redneck bullshit, but they got better, and the show is really good too so, I watched all of it. I needed a Black character or even a Mexican on the show that was more than "furniture" in a room of white folks
  7. I dont know her
  8. It is real,, it started all about old people, and survival rates being over 90%, until I lost my aunt. Covid-19 is real and they dont have the answers, which, aside from the fact its not leaving, makes things scary. Glad you recovered heffa I was in here conjuring your spirit telling the drive in concerts to turn on your high beams for this next song..... Don't worry I'm cray
  9. As a long time hard core fan, I can try to tell you somethings as I believe them to be and if you add them up it all makes sense: 1. Janet is a mother, that's her first priority. 2. Janet's a great legend act and she's done more than many will ever do, having said that her best days are past her now. 3. Some Janet fans truly expect these long drawn out album promo campaigns with 4 music videos and singles. Refer to #2 4. Did you know there was a global pandemic? That thing stopped a ton of projects in progress. For example, Janet was making the rounds early this year, she did The View, Jimmy Fallon, announced a new tour with a new album. I don't think Janet's NOT doing when she can be bothered. Speaking of when you've done as much as Janet you've earned the right to do it on your time. 5. So much got cancelled and pushed back, I saw Wonder Woman promo Doritos bags at Walmart, problem there is WW2 didn't happen yesterday I was at the store and looked at the Sunday paper, it was thin as hell, Sunday Newspapers are usually bulky with ads etc. I was told by someone they dont even have a TV guide in them anymore because new shows aren't being rolled out.
  10. I'm not a hater, a gave her a good minute and thought at first I might enjoy it, so its not hating nor not giving her a shot, it's just I found myself towards the end ready for it to end. IMO
  11. it sounds more like a B-side thats not polished well, it certainly is NOT single worthy, the quality is just not high enough
  12. I was speaking musically the song Pillow Talk has some Island Life vibes in sound. As for the vocals, I felt "Pillow Talk" could use a vocal arrangement akin to that on "Island Life"
  13. the vocals are not doing it for me either, the music sounds good though. It reminds me a bit of "Island Life", a song that echoes the kind of vocals that Janet shine on with a mid-tempo song like "Pillow Talk" which I've never heard of until now come through Questlove
  14. it's too much, everyone with an opinion feels like its cool to say whatever the hell they feel like saying, regardless of how it affects others. I can only do social media so long now adding that to the news. People say and do ignorant things
  15. I LOVE me some Madonna, and I've played plenty of her lately on my nostalgia 80's binge BUT watching Madge "dance" is cring worthy to me, and for the exact same reason you mentioned, Janet makes dancing look flawless, well executed in timing and attitude, and effortless get dat ish Janet so watching other pop dance chicks is not the biz Well Gaga has a top 10 hit on her hands, although it fell 4 spots from its previous position on the BB Hot 100
  16. as a man of color, many Black and Brown folks know who our allies are and perhaps more importantly who they are not. I get this impression that you feel the burden of carrying this "struggle" on your own shoulders, in that I believe that is not a "struggle" for you to carry. Why should you bare the cross of humanities sins? You are not responsible for the actions of those who happen to look like you. It's greatly appreciated that you voice concern, and in some ways are part of a new "normal" wherein white folks are speaking up in this moment. We all, no matter who we are, have to take care of ourselves, because if you don't you're not good to anyone. Take care of you, racism was here before you came and it'll be here after. That said, As others here have voiced, take in only so much of the news, because while its disheartening I believe new cycles can be toxic and desensitizing. Take some time to evaluate what your thoughts are regarding what's occurring and formulate your own ideas about the realities we are in. For example, I cannot recall a white officer ever going to prison for having killed a person of color, not one. So I dont expect much, because the record has given me too many "I know how this movie ends" to warrant expectations. I will say, interestingly, that I have become acutely aware, even more lately, that I'm a black man. Being a person of color comes with that state of existence an entire litany of "this is just how it will be for you" and we learn to work around or circumvent "unfairness" I must admit even leaving my place to go for a walk to think and clear my head, again, I am very aware of my surroundings, who is present, and my all important go to: ARE THERE OTHER BLACK PEOPLE AROUND!!!!....to a marked degree my anxiety decreases when I see my people, there's strength in numbers, I also fear for my own safety in the event someone ignorant decides I'm the one to steal on in that moment.
  17. now that's an endorsement ...chile I gotta warm up to do new Gaga, let's start with "Just Dance" a banger itself.
  18. What an exciting time to be alive? It's the wildest year I've ever seen in my entire life. It's a lot to wrap your head around, I will say I truly was floored by the mass amount of protests taking place across dozens of cities. Tonight protests in Detroit are planned. I took a break for a moment, a break around late April as course work had come to most of it's completion. After that I made a plan, I need to take stock, of where the hell am I and what am I doing? Is this course of action appropriate or not? I agree with Rocco I began to take in news again, on an decidedly active basis. I found I can only tolerate so much "news" I write that in quotes because I hear a ton of commentary more that anything. I made it a point to stay in contact and around my people. I made regular trips back home to check in on the welfare of my mother, brother and father, the closest members of my family to me. I would text and or call, as I get older i realize not to take family for granted, I lost an aunt to Covid-19 and we buried her watching from a limo window was as close as we got. With the "extra" time spent not actually working but being able to focus in and reflect....I'm soul searching, what do I want in life, what makes me happy, and being productive is important to me. I have all of my requirements to begin the professional portion of pharmacy school done. In the meantime Ive cleaned the hell out of my place, removing things I have no use for and letting go. Cooking more because its cheaper and I can actually cook My way of trying to remain balanced in this was to take the time to stay on my shit. I only hate that I've eaten everything in sight and put on a few pounds... I mean exercise is a fail for me, I have to accept that reality I do maintain a regular schedule for eating and sleeping. I am in bed by 11pmish, and up before 9am often 6am. The early bird gets the worm. If I watch TV it has to be good stuff, but I really tried to incorporate more books. I pay attention to my environment, what is going on around me? I get up take walk around the neighborhood, I see people jogging, gathering together in different ways but also distancing. social media has shown out and I'm avoiding that to a degree, like you folks do what ya do. Its because you have these "friends" that say shit and they gotta be put on mute. It happens to all us I've come to the conclusion its best to fly under the radar, which is to say that I will NOT engage in politics unless I know who I'm dealing with. Lots of folks on mute for saying the worst things and or agreeing.
  19. sadly, and maybe crazy of me, but I'm still in quarantine and stay at home orders which means I haven't heard her I'll hear Gaga some other time what does make me want to listen are the reports its her best album in a very long time, but Gaga fans tend to do that
  20. ughh, this whole thing, race, starts with being a human being first. Okay, as you are, so dont apologize for being born who you are you have zero control over that. I have disengaged with social media, because I dont want to go back and forth, but intellectually speaking, I could, the problem for all of us is it doesn't matter what you say, people believe what they do and you will not be changing that on a Twitter or whatever. Stay strong in what you know to be right, stay open to hearing others, but vigilant in your own constitution. Today we don't respect one another, we certainly dont hear one another, why? We have so much to say. You learn more listening. Treat others as you would want to be treated, be mindful that although your world, and its immediate environment, may be "familiar" to you, the globe transpires against that narrative. See the globe as it is, and despite that, still treat others as you would have them treat you, it is not weakness, it is strength to stand for what you believe to be honest in your actions Because you are "white" does not make you guilty of a crime anymore than being "black" makes me guilty of a crime. We all have some sense of right and wrong, and to this I speak..... an injustice anywhere is a treat to justice everywhere, when you see sum shit, speak up. I have seen the video three times now, and the only thing that moves me more than wrong, is right, the bystanders said this aint right and that shit got broadcast to the whole planet to do the same thing

    Let me be frank , over the years this whole bit has gotten well "dated" now that is not to say that the founder of this forum aint on her shit, cause this place trumps pretty much every other forum, I started out on Miss Janet, back in 1995ish, I remember it was through AOL, who remembers thats? long time ago, it was different then, Janet would sneak in on us and we had no clue, Rene would make his presence known. So much has changed. So much hasn't, It's been one hell of a ride over the years, from Henry, Pie, LoveProfusion, TheHiltonSuite, ThatOtherFan, Mr. Together, Jodie, Matt, sooooo many I cannot name. I do miss the days we had over 40 people on at one time, but things change, and we keep moving, or should, because whether we do or dont the world moves on regardless. Hell I've written an entire autobiography here I paid my respects to Paul because even though he and I butted heads often, I still liked that guy, he was one of the fam. as is Game I still speak to him, when I can be bothered I tried to give 18.14 to Paul but shit man the US dollar aint $18.14 in British pounds

    Paul

    is there some way to honor him? On one of the Janet groups? It's shocking
  24. "Ozark" I do believe is low key, or maybe not so low-key, racist and specifically panders to people that voted for that orange dude I heard plenty of things about this show being good, but I did not take into account who is saying it's good. The show is racist
