Ok Starfoxx tagged me so I'm a do this right now and stop being a stick in the mud.
10 Things that I love. Oh first I guess I should say I hardly ever use this word love. Maybe its because I listened to 'Love's gonna get'cha' a few times too many but yea I think this word is overused. Anyways here goes.
1 - My Family - that's my wife and parents anybody else doesn't really count. Basically my motto here is if I would defend you, or get into crap for you for no apparent reason then you are family and so far that list is rather small.
2 - Music - Especially hip hop. Music just does something for me. Aside from Hip Hop, I'm all about the reggae, jazz, calypso and that sort of stuff as well. Just music with a good rhythm. Its kind of funny how many good friends I made in Canada just through music. My boy D, I met when we were back home and he was a hip hop head, then I meet another brother through him who was a dj who I'm still tight with till today. Then I remember my boy J. I was in university residence and there weren't many dudes who listened to hip hop so when I walked past his room on moving in day and heard Jeru's Come Clean pumping I knew that I had to see who was playing that. Anyway years later we still cool too, My Boy P I also met under similar circumstances and we still cool like that too. Oh and I sort of met my wife through hip hop too so all in all musics been good to me.
3 - Heat - I hate cold weather, and I mean absolutely frigging hate it which is ironic cause I live in Canada. I think my internal theromometer is set a few degrees lower than everyone's else so I need it to be at least 25C before I start to feel comfortable.
4 - Writing - Actually I never realized how much I like writing until a while back. Yea my blog isn't the best written thing on the net but considering I didn't even think I had anything to say I'm pretty happy and I've seen an improvement in my writing since I started which was one of my goals. Oh and I hated writing stuff at high school, think I started writing because of hip hop. One of my boys was writing songs and I thought I could do a better job so I started writing. I actually had an entire hip hop album written before I made it to Toronto (sort of like Brand Nubian, meets Gang Starr meets KRS-one lol). Then I moved onto poetry, which I had/have a real love hate relationship with and then I decided I needed to write more than that. No real goals regarding the writing just seeing where it goes but I must say I kind of like the fact that we have so many brothers and sista blogging cause one of my biggest beefs is that black folks seem to perform too much and not actually write so one day I hope to see some of you talented folks as authors.
5 - The beach - Something about going to the beach back in Barbados at 5 or 6 and just being immersed in its salty embrace that's just so therapeutric.
Anyways that's all I can think of and I wont force any more.
