Karma and the people who deserve her!

Some of us are so worried about karma or the universe paying us back that we allow people to beat us down to the ground and do nothing. We fail to realize, that sometimes, by defending ourselves, we could very well be the karma they're supposed to get. This doesn't mean you have to answer the phone every time a fight calls, but sometimes...

Sometimes it's okay to fight back. I'd advise you to pick your battles wisely, but do not become anyone's doormat. Fight back. Fight for your right to be seen and treated as human. Sometimes, I treat people exactly the way they treat me. You do know it's possible to fight fire with fire right? Like that is a legit thing. Firefighters will light a larger fire to keep the smaller fire contained within. Sometimes you just have to show your ass to get people to leave you alone. 

I don't advise starting a fight, but by God, sometimes you need to finish that motherfucker and do so in style. STOP allowing people to bully you. STOP allowing toxic people to make you feel like shit for defending yourself after months, and sometimes even years, of their abuse. I made a post about a month ago on this very thing. I am no longer in the business of erasing me to accommodate you. 



I will no longer allow people to say whatever they feel to me because they think I won't, for a lack of better words, clap back. I've had to put loads of people in their places this year alone. I won't bully people, but I will no longer be bullied either.  For me, I used to be so worried that the way I responded to being hurt would cause bad karma if I reacted in a way that some considered negatively. However, I'm over that now. In no way do I think the universe wants us to sit back and be taken advantage of. I do believe the universe wants us to take care of ourselves. Self-love is so very important. 

With that being said, sometimes doing unto others as you would have them do unto you only works when both people have mutual respect for one another. Other times, you have to put a mofo on their behinds.

  1. Your words resonate with and have touched me. I too have taken on the philosophy of treating people as unkindly as they've treated me.

    Though, as you stated, we must pick our fights carefully, I'm done being treated as though I do not matter and bullied as if I were not going to retaliate.

    I will no longer apologize for being a good man nor for happily embracing the new being I've transformed into. No more will I allow others belittle me without expecting from me the proper reaction.

    Thank you,once more,for being my muse.

New Movie Review: Deuces

So I watched Deuces last night. It's a new movie starring Larenz Tate, Lance Gross and Meagan Goode. The premise of the story is damn near like every one of those hood novels that are so popular on Amazon these days. If you've read any novel considered hood or urban lit, then you've seen this movie already. And just like some of the hood/urban lit novels, the movie had a few issues. That didn't take away from the fact I kinda enjoyed the jawn. The story goes a little something like this: Man is a drug dealer. Man wants to go legit. Man meets girl. Girl falls in love with man. A new dude comes into the crew. It shakes up crazy and before you know it, the shit done hit the fan. I give the movie a solid three-stars and that's only because it was good to see Larenz Tate on the screen again. However, some of the acting left a lot to be desired. Still, if you got nothing to do on a late night, I'd recommend it.

I post HONEST reviews; I'm also an author!

95% of the time when I do a review, I've paid for the book. I used to accept free books in exchange for "honest" reviews. However, I've found that people don't really want honest. They want what makes them feel good. So I started purchasing the books I wanted to read myself. That way, people can't feel that I'm obligated to post anything but my honest opinion. It's rare that I give anything less than three-stars. If the book falls below three-stars, I stop reading it and move on.

Reviewers sometimes get a rough deal. They have authors who come after them maliciously. They have authors who feel like a reviewer owes them something. Some authors even feel a reader/reviewer has to post a review in a certain time frame. They don't. There are no set rules when it comes to reviewing unless the reviewer gives their word that they will post one in a certain time frame. Readers/reviewers have lives. I'm sure many of them would love to just sit home with…

Is'nana The Were-Spider: A Review and Interview with the Creator, Greg Anderson-Elysee

Anansi has been known as many things from the Sky God to the Keeper of Stories and my personal favorite, the Trickster. While many argue Anansi's origin, stories and folklore tales can be found about the Spider-God throughout Africa and the Caribbean. Anansi is sometimes depicted in many different ways. Sometimes as a spider with a human face or sometimes as a spider wearing clothes. He is even depicted human like with spider elements like having eight legs. But what makes the story of Is'nana the Were-Spider different is we get to see Anansi as a father.
I know, I know. Amazing isn't it?
Is'nana is the son of the Spider-God and throughout the comic we get to see a bond between father and son that makes me see Anansi in a whole new light. Without spoiling too much of the comic for those of you who haven't had a chance to read it yet, the comic opens with an introduction to Is'nana. While we already know of his famous father, we get to see the world through Is…
