Way Back Wednesdays: Loose Ends

  Anybody who knows me knows I'm the queen of B-sides and those things old, vintage.  Anyway, this was my jam during my 1st year in college and I'm happy to have found this on YouTube.  Loose Ends was only around (in the States) for a minute in the 80s and there really much to be found online (I refuse to do that lazy Wikipedia $hit).

Happy 96th Ella! + 60s Covers Done with Soul

I picture you in heaven right now partying with those who were near and dear to my heart.  Hopefully, if I do not go in the opposite direction (LOL), you will serenade me with this Cream cover.

Not sure if today's her b-day but I thought this was an underrated treat.  Erma Franklin (Aretha's sister) made this cover of the Doors classic. Enjoy!

Black to the Future: The Great Divide

This review is not about a Disney movie review nor does it star the McClain sisters.  This comedy stars Tichina Arnold as a upper-middle class housewife who gathers her eclectic group of friends for an evening which includes the art of Kama Sutra.  Not an orgy if you're unfamiliar with the process but the art of getting to know your mate on a spiritual level...or something to that effect.

Her intentions and the events that unfold come with its twists and turns and there are even a few surprises toward the end.  One person I did not understand was Rosci Diaz and why she was there.  Outside of that I got this on Redbox last week and it was worth time away from the hustle. *Catches breath*

Here are a couple of trailers -
