    On Homeschool, Bourbon and Re-Entry

    It was Fathers' Day (I choose plural possessive), I had a couple sips and then hit record. Enter at your own risk. Getting back to the grind is going to be difficult. Folks already standing too close and trying to breathe in your face. Work, and other things, don't feel quite the same and I'm not so sure what's next.

    Over a year into the apocalypse, I'm growing my own food with the help of vegetable robot. It's keeping me sane as the end of semester madness begins.

    On Us vs. Them

    On Us vs. Them

    Processing how art about Black life is often, both, too much and not enough - at the same. Join me as I discuss Amazon's new series "Them." I did my best to make it spoiler free, but feel free to circle back to this discussion AFTER you watch, if you don't want to know anything about the show. That said, the discussion is a general one about nuance and responsibility as creators.


    Please chime in to the discussion in the comments...even if you watch the recording later. I'll respond.

Asertay ,

Get outta my head!

Phill Boogie puts words to the jumbled mess in my head. I laugh and cry and sigh with him, and I look forward to it every week.

Noice Package ,

Hilarious!!

Your stories during this pandemic season are super funny and thought provoking. Telling them why you are in hiding from your family makes it even more hilarious! However, I feel like we are all doing the same thing at the very same moment!!

MsMallette ,

Love this!

This is the voice I needed (besides the one in my head) to get through this time.
