Morning Edition - 6/6/05

New Releases 6/7 & 6/21
Don’t ask me what happened to June 14…the truth of the matter is, I’ll be recovering from the Puerto Rican Day festivities of the weekend before to care to find out, but here is the scoop on the June 7 and June 21 new music releases. For the “old school” crowd, Crimson Productions is releasing Simply Beautiful: The Love Songs by Al Green on June 7; while Def Jam is releasing Classic Moments with Patti LaBelle. If you’re feeling like reaching back, just not quite that far, Universal is putting-out Back to the Future: The Very Best of Jodeci on June 7 – uh, yeah, I said Jodeci! If what you’d like to do is just chill and relax there are a few things going on… Loleatta Holloway will have Anthology and Raheem will return with Love Experience, both on June 7. If you’d rather have a more soulful and edgy mix, then wait until June 21 for Angie Stone’s Greatest Hits Live CD or maybe Eric Benet’s first post-Halle release, Hurricane. Feeling like you still have a little 80s left in you that needs some addressing, then you’re in luck because Pat Benatar will drop her Greatest Hits on June 7 and Culture Club will drop their Greatest on June 21. That should take care of our music jones in June.

Sandy Bottom
This weekend marked our first foray into the summer fun weather. Both Saturday and Sunday in New York held temperatures in the mid 80s. Sunday, the humidity had even the “coolest” of New Yorkers breaking a sweat. Orchard Beach, a Bronx beach that is best known for its Latino flare and hot summer concerts, was jumping on Sunday. A few friends and I gathered on the beach to sip Smirnoff flavored coolers and shoot the breeze – okay, okay, we took in the gorgeous sights as well – but I was on a semi-date and was on my best behavior… well, unless I was off to the little-boys room on my own or something. All-in-all the Apple was baked to perfection and the beach bumming was followed by my friends and me displaying that stunning almond glow, still in beachwear, at the height of Sunday’s cocktail hour. Later, while taking a hot shower, a friend and I laughed hysterically to discover the amount of sand our bottoms picked up in a couple of hours on nature’s tanning bed. ….yeah, like you never showered with a “friend.”

Shum-On; My Back Is Killing Me
Michael Jackson left Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital on Sunday night after being treated for, what Jesse Jackson called, “excruciating pain” in his back. Today, jurors will have their first full day of deliberations. If Jackson isn’t acquitted he will be seeking relief for a much lower back pain.

My company had their annual picnic this weekend and I noticed something that really bothered me. Out of 900 some people, lets say there were 300 white females and 300 black females. Why were 80% of the white females with there husband's and children while 95% of the black females just with their children? Where are the black males? Do they just make the babies and leave? I am a married black female and this situation really bothered me!

Anonymous said...

Don't worry anonymous, those missing husbands and father will be home on time, their just out with their boy-friends, I mean male-friends,CHILLIN'. No seriously, the ones you see clinging to their man and making him "take the childs with him", are the same ones who are afraid of losing their man. Stand Tall, Be Strong...

Cocoa Rican said...

Touche' anonymous! Absolutely hysterical on the "chillin'-with-boyfriend" comment. Truth is, I just dropped an extremely handsome, intelligent and affectionate man when he revealed he had a wife and kids he didn't want to go home to. Uh, I wasn't flattered! It's all in what we'll accept from folks. As for Anonymous #1, not all dads want to do the corporate picnic and although statistics show that single black moms are more prevalent we should look at the cause rather than beat up on the absentee dads. Were the single moms divorced? Were they ever married? What was the age range? There are so many other factors that should be addressed before we simply chalk it up to "where are the black males"

I had the pleaseure of seeing Raheem DeVaughn, New Edition and Brian McKnight this past Friday and I have to tell you, I screamed like I was 13 again! So anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE New Edition but I was pleasantly surprised when Raheem DeVaughn did an outstanding job. My husband knows Raheem personally so I'd heard a few of his mixtapes and underground stuff but his live show was really good for a newbie. He announced that his new CD the Love Experience would be in stores on June 28 instead of the previously announced June 7. I suggest you cop that if you like that R&B sould feel.

New Edition was great!!! If I wasn't a happily married woman, Ralph could get the bizness hott, butt, and nekkid :-)

donya said...

Well I was at the after party and was hollered at by Ricki Bell himself. I could not believe it I had such a crush on him as a little girl. I also met ronnie and ralph. They were all very nice.

Anonymous said...

You're better than I am Cocoa - I went out and got a married man purposely. It's worth it and I get all the benefits without the drama. The sisters can hate but whateva. The Jeanine chick needs to get off New Edition's stick. They're losers. And for anonymous who is wondering where the black men are, you can stop wondering. Wasup. Bring it on.

Anonymous said...

I'm a black female, married with kids and I attend my office functions without my husband, mainly because I do not want him embarrassing me in front of my co-workers. You can take the nigga out of the projects but you can't take the projects out of the nigga.

Cocoa Rican said...

To the anonymous F-A-G... I know bating when I see it. Back to square one on the "Karma" thing. Nobody's knocking your orientation, but DAMN, stop giving others a bad name. You're a busted low-down bama and that's all there is to it. Maybe you've chosen to seek-out a second-place position because you already know first place is out of your league. Now Wassup?!

lala said...

I love New Edition. I am going to see them when they hit my area. Anonymous...why would you call an entire group of men losers? Do you know them all personally? Just wondering.

Anonymous said...

Dear 10:42 am Anonymous,
Get a freaking idea. If you where all that, you should have signed a name brother/ thing? but on the other hand we already know your name, “Clean up woman 2004,”
I am not surprised to hear that someone is better than you...sounds like everyone is better than you. I am just surprised that you even reached for the shirttail of my boi Hector, silly punk, tricks are for kids, and loser like you only get someone under sex, over weight, abusive, “Oh, I could get hard tonight” piece of left over shit. If a married man steps to me his wife will definitively know because I will kick his tired balls through the roof of his mouth and he will be wearing them on his head as a prayer drolly. She would have to be blind not to know. And lastly, you should get up off Jeanie "Stick", let the sister live, and enjoy what she finds pleasurable in life. Party on Jeanie-Girl
Signed,
Clent, AKA Bring It On

Clint, Cocoa, Jeanine and the rest of the bums, get this, I can choose to do whoever and whatever and it doesn't make me second place to anybody. Don't make me go there on this Cocoa thing because I can tell you of a few of his low-down tricks and dethrone his high and mighty a$$. Now you Clint, seems to me that you don't want me to dig through my files, seems I can find something on your behind too. What are you white? A black man would know that this game has been around for a while. Don't you people come down on me because I takes what I want.

Anonymous said...

The correct spell is CLENT, and you bitch, come for me “hole of whore”. Oh, I know you, that’s just how stupid you are. Please go peddle your wares somewhere else. This is not what this blog is about. But FF, if you have a problem with me we can meet, I don’t have any problems wit-it’. When I not see you I am going to break my foot off, knee deep in your married-man spare-tap hole, as a formal introduction. CoCoa Rican you should review your reader list and press edit. And, for you 10:42 Anonymous why don’t let everyone else know who your tired behind is? One more thing can we take a vote on this tired jackass? "No more comments from your hole is the pole". Catchy ah!If anyone agrees, please reply by messaging; Yeah, why don’t you go wait in the dark for someone guy to treat you to a quicky.
Regards,

PS,
I know why you're hating on Ms. Jeanie...
She has her own man, and Well, you don't!
PPS,
The AKC called, your papers were declined. Sorry Boo

Cocoa Rican said...

Okay... okay...okay...
Anonymous & Notorious F.A.G... you've apparently woken up on the wrong side of the bed. I don't know where the anger, frustration and "hateration" is coming from, but I suspect all that "borrowed" man time would frustrate anyone. Now, since I don't know how I know you, I think I'll call your bluff... dethrone me Boo.

Anonymous said...

Clint, Clent, whateva man. You don't put no fear in my heart. Your not the one I want anyway. Its the little spanish fly thats gonna get his first. Cocoa, where do you want me to begin? Should I start wit your little affairs in DC. Maybe the major one that ended your long relationship with the juice head. Folks were surprised to find out you had been screwing that skinny freckled queen from you office. Especially your man. Or maybe you want me to bring up your affair within a affair. You know the one where you were cheating on the man you were cheaitng on your man with. Come on spic bitch. You snagged more black men than the NBA. You want me to put out some more?

Cocoa Rican said...

Well alright Anonymous F-A-G. I'd say, "You win," but the very fact that you went there let's me know two things: 1) You're class-less and 2)Your apparent hatred for me is only matched by your envy. Thanks for keeping tabs on my life - hope you've paid special attention to the growth! Most important, since you know me, you should know how to reach me. By all means, feel free. My friends are going to love me regardless Boo... they love me with all my faults and misgivings. This Blog however is for honest sharing - not sludge-throwing. Grow up, get over me and work on you. BTW - Good luck with your life. UPDATE FOR YOU: Mine is going great!!

Seems like anonymous 1:17pm needs to be hogtied in a straight jacket and sent to the looney bin in a hearse.
Look here bee-yatch, you steppin to the Cocoa Rican is like Saddam running in his drawers with an unloaded gun into a platoon of Army Rangers. You are about to get shut down and shot down if you haven't been already. We are soldiers for our Boo. Only someone low and dirty would call someone on some high and mighty bullshit. So, check yourself and let yourself be known. This way, you catch the ass whoopin you desperately need for being the coward you are.

Anonymous said...

Get that nasty fuckin bitch off the damn air. Bitch if you had any idea before, you gonna wish you had one now. You lonely dry up piece unwanted, unloved, discarded and should have been forgotten lucky piece of placenta. See that what wrong with Cocoa; you befriend the loneliest and lonely dog shit that even too tired to stick to your shoe. Let vote her off the Blog, NOW!
And maybe if you weren't paying so much attention to other people lives, you would have a man of ya'own.

Anonymous said...

Anonymous - this is not the time nor the place. If you have issues with Hector than you need to be a "real" man and address him one on one. Furthermore, why do you feel the need to hide your identity? I agree with Clent, no more comments.

caspar608 said...

COME ON P.A.B! COME OUT COME OUT WHEREVER YOU ARE! YOU LOST YOUR MIND FROM BEING IN THAT DARK CLOSET FOR TOO, TOO LONG.

Anonymous said...

And all the people say...

Anonymous said...

Hector, maybe you should block people from using anonymous. That will take care of a lot of the problems that we are facing today or fix it that you are the only one who knows who they are.
If someone is keeping tabs on you like that, they must want to be like you or have the things you have. I can't think of anyone I would pay that much attention to unless I wanted them or what/who they had. You keep your head up Hector. We have all been through and many of us are still going through. I don't care about the past, all I care about is that I can say I have at least one friend that keeps it REAL and that is you. Love you Papi!

caspar608 said...

I say you change the script and not let anyone who doesn't reveal their name post a comment. We don't need haters infiltrating our little block party. This blogspot is about speaking our minds freely without the drama.
Get a life anonymous. Or watch the stories.

caspar608 said...

You know what...you're right. Why change things for one ignoramus (and a stalker to boot!)
Let's keep it the way it is. REAL. Everyone has to live their life to learn what they need to learn. In this case, Hector has always admitted to his mistakes and dealt with his Karma in a dignified manner. He is all about integrity at this point in his life. And his advise is always ON POINT. So, to the hater in the back who won't show his face I suggest you put your knees to the ground and ask the Lord to help you with your obvious mental issues.

Cocoa Rican said...

Long story short, I've apparently caused you some sort-of pain Anonymous. Like Caspar said, I've done my dirt and quite frankly I'm not ashamed of any of it. It happened. I was either too dumb, too slick or too ignorant to know better at the time. Today I can tell you - it happens. In the interest of closure though, if my ignorance brought-on the hate, you have my apologies... my conscience is clear. One SGL person to another though, you're only bringing yourself down in your attempt to topple me. Always... keep passin' the open windows :)

caspar608 said...

let's hear it for the boy. let's hear it for my maaaaannnn.

Anonymous said...

Now I think you going to want to think about opening your mouth to quick. I'll chill today. I'll be waching you though. I liked you alot. Now I think that your a teflon guy. Nothing sticks with your a$$. Thats alright. Erika said it, see you next lifetime the difference is there is hard feelings.
WYB - Watch your back

Lady Long Legs said...

It’s obvious that you have been hurt by Hector some kind of way. My only advice is for you to accept his apology and move on. We all have faults and all have done things that we regret and for you to put him out there like that is really immature. As you can see from the responses, you are not hurting anyone but yourself. You are looking foolish and immature. Please stop this madness.

Been There said...

Anonymous...I have also been hurt in relationships and I understand your frustration but maybe you should contact Hector away from the group and discuss things. I am a female so I can't say that he has hurt me but I have been hurt. Let it lay. Forgot about what he did to you or what he put you through and move on. It is not worth it. At least you didn't end up with a baby by the one that hurt you...I did.

Cocoa Rican said...

If I impregnated anyone, I'm also sorry... I mean, I have to cover all my bases today! :)

lala said...

Hector, you are crazy!

Anonymous said...

Thanks you guys for supporting Cocoa, he’s my best-friend. He and Slim-BLS but you see I am made of the same cloth as David, and if you don’t know who David, we can talk later. It isn’t anything to brag about, all of my sins are before me. But like David I know when to slay a giant and when to sacrifice a lamb, but little ms. anonymous, you are neither. Neither are you worth the sweat nor burden of the sins of kicking your tired parts around. So, go back under your rock and keep on peeking out at the wonder of other people lives, (we wouldn’t want to deprive you of you only joys in life), but leave you backside out so that you can still be a service to cheating husband on their way to their Loving families. Peace

Lady Long Legs said...

Hector, I forgive you but you still need to pay child support. How could you forget about Lil Hectoria? She has your eyes.

lala said...

Forget Hectoria...Hector, Jr. needs money for summer camp! Hector knows school lets out this week. What am I going to do with this boy while I am at work?

Anonymous said...

Thank you Cocoa, I and Lill ‘CoCao-Tundo' accept your apologies. He looks just like, right down to the little white suit. Did I say little? He getting ready to go to College now, community he isn’t that bright. Do to the fact that we had to live in a sub-human state of existence and eat cat food he’s a little developmental slow. Okay, a little slow maybe an understatement. For him to get a movie you have to play it in revise. Enough already just send some money.
Signed,
you’re not alone, “I still can’t walk Straight”

Excuse lady, CoCoa-Tundo is and will always be Cocoa only Love-child. Back up to the curb girl our baby is going to college. So what, he will still be ridding the yellow school bus and his classing won't be held exactly on the official campus. Our boy is a College man, stop peaking you noise, don’t, don’t, that nasty Cocoa-Tundy

Cocoa Rican said...

Y'all thought black men were bad...don't get my started on latino men (or as someone pointed out "spic" so-and-so) Poor kids wouldn't see a cent from my red behind! ...but I'll be sure to step in when they hit 18 to let them know that they need to respect me. You know how it goes. By the way Lala and Lady LL, if those kids don't have "good" hair, they ain't mine! :)

Child the morning edition was enough to carry us over into the afternoon. Give Hector a break. He has been through enough today!

lala said...

Okay...Lil' Hector doesn't have good hair and he really isn't yours but I thought after all those drinks that night, you wouldn't remember one way or the other. At least I tried! Let me email this other dude, we went out a few times...he may fall for it. I still love you.

Anonymous said...

If you ever decide to go straight Hector, you give me a call. I will leave my husband in a minute after what I saw in those shorts at Watkins Park a few years back. Lawd Have Mercy!!!

Jeanine said...

Just getting a chance to check back in and WOW! LLL, Clent, Cocoa thanks for sticking up for a sister. It's all good though. Anonymous is clearly just mad and should really move on.

But alas, if h/she insists one being an azz then let's cut the BS and speak your piece without the cushion of anonymity. Please belive that this Brooklyn girl can and will handle her own so man up & reveal who you are, speak your mind like an adult or shut the fucc up. There's no room for hate in here.

I hate it when they bring the G-Dub Projects girl outta me but I see I'ma have to handle this real quick. Where BROOKLYN at?

I remember those shorts!

Boyfriend is working with a nice package - okay!!

caspar608 said...

Damn Chulo! You are really getting it today! That package is probably what made anonymous lose their mind.

Anonymous said...

caspar608 -

anonymous @ 2:20 is the same mark azz busta that tried to put Hector out there. And I must agree, the shorts made anonymous lose his mind. Hell, I'm a married woman and I couldn't stop staring - it looked like he had a flashlight in his shorts and when he jumped up to hit the volley ball and it popped out -- Lord Have Mercy!

lala said...

I wasn't even there and I heard about the shorts and the volleyballs...I mean ball.

Anonymous said...

It's not the package that drives them crazy, it's the cream center that keeps them cummin, I mean coming..LHM
I heard that is what Christopher Columbus was lokin-fur. He was way too early and it sounds like anonymous was way too late...Okay, lets get up off anonymous beacause someone cheating huband may be waiting their turn. If they leave work now and say there was heavy traffic the Mrs. won't be wiser.

Hey Anonymous. I'll be watching my back while you're KMA -kizzing my azz. You Pimp Threats now, huh? I don't miss sweetie. Next threat might send you home to the bitch that birthed you. Slap a muzzle on your pie hole and get some meds in you through an IV drip STAT. There are so many on the market right now that will take away your psychotic tendencies - I suggest you get yourself some help. Fuccing nutjob stalker.
