Reading is {Fun!}damental

42-15866433 When I’m not sharing my random observations about nothing and yet everything, I read. I read books but due to the constraints of a paperless environment at work I’m unable to enjoy the crease in the small of her back. Enter the skill’s I’ve acquired with appearing to be working, I read Blogs.

I like to spread them out, I’ve got twenty-two inches baby. Double monitors at work allow me to keep the bizness on one screen & my favorite Blogs on the other.

I’m Mr.TramueL and I read ‘em & you should too …

378c9aa8_620 Hahahaha I came across this “note” that I was tagged in on Facebook. Found it whilst I am preparing to delete my Facebook account.{Deleting pictures and notes before I hit the delete button} It’s amazing the sayings, quotes & idiosyncrasies that I’ve carried with me over the years.

1. My ex.... I'd like to sing you a song now about her. It's called, "They'll Find Her When the Leaves Blow Away 'Cause I'm Not Raking 'Til Spring."

2. Maybe I should.....begin writing my unauthorized autobiography.

3. I family, music, books and technology.

4. People would say that aesthetic, sensuous & harmonious.

5. I don't understand.....people who say life is a mystery, because what is it they want to know?

6. When I wake up in the morning.......I thank GOD for blessing me, then I pray, when they die, cartoon characters have to answer for their sins.

7. I lost....... hope; the terrifying acceleration of interpersonal communications will uglify all hope for human psyche. (I is Intelligent)

8. Life is full of......ironic twists that sometimes startle us. Ex: Taking a laxative and a sleeping pill at the same time.

9. My past is......full of wonderful memories and learning opportunities that I've grown from. Although there is one memory I would like to forget ... Northwest Elementary School song "Northwest, Northwest old dear and faithful we will all be true, your hopes, your dreams and inspirations will always see us through!" I CANT STOP SINGING IT!

10. I get annoyed when......I'm reading a book and falling asleep, I'm reading, reading . . . and all of a sudden I notice my eyes are closed.

11. Parties are.....the moral and intellectual crisis of our time! Do I wear jeans, sneakers and a button up? or get suited up? ... Well maybe I should match what she is wearing?

12. I wish.....for a speedy economic recovery!

13. Dogs.... are not my friend, their favorite bone is in my leg.

14. Cats.....too sneaky.

15. Tomorrow......We live in a different day: economically, globally, politically and socially. How things are today are not like they were ten or twenty years ago. Don't live based on yesterday's information. Know your history, but live in the future.

16. I have low tolerance for......nasty, dark baby toes! Please stop going to the Chinese shop at the mall and go to a spa!

17. If I had a million dollars.......I would honor GOD, take care of my family, travel and educate myself.

18. I'm totally terrified......of waking up butt naked on a deserted island with a remote control, a bucket of chicken and a bowl of sunflower seeds.

19. My boyfriend......I'm funny, LOL funny not gay funny. (nothing wrong with being so!)

19.5 I guess I was supposed to change #19 to "My girlfriend"?

20. My life.......My entertainment~

Please! I don't wanna sing it again ... Okay, okay I'll do it! "Northwest Northwest ..."

Live Well!

  Written & Illustrated By Lena Hopkins-Jackson

* DISCLAIMER: This one will not be in "Rolling Out" this week. It's a tad too racy I guess ( pun intended). Either way

I'm sharing it and though I created this in the spirit of humor, there's truth in jest sooooooooooo here are the.....


          10. Terminate it…..( James Cameron style )

       Create a cyborg-terminator from "SKYNET" (,The Black-operated division)

to travel back several hundred years into the past and ‘eliminate’ the dumb-@ss, non-pronouncing slave trader strolling along the river NIGER who started this mess in the 1st d@mn place!



9. Send it out to Crystal Lake and let Jason have at it……….

 We can all agree that the “N-Word” is the ‘Asian-hair supply store’ of racial epithets: It’s EVERYWHERE and much like Jason, just won’t die! So who better than “Mister-crazy-hockey-mask-killer”  himself  to do away with it once and for all….Jason can stab it, axe it, burn it alive.. Whatever, just KILL IT so it will never come back! ...and while we’re it, let’s throw “Keeping It Real” under the bus too, that phrase NEEDS to die...seriously.


8. Create a “It’s-Okay-To-Say-N@gger”  Day……

 For an ENTIRE 24 hours Caucasions can get this word they’re just ITCHING to say out of their systems for good….AND Black people are NOT allowed to ‘retaliate’ at all! (Yup, those are the  rules!) From normally, mild-mannered corporate bankers to Fox-News staff, White folks will be drunk with euphoria and screaming it to the top of their lungs… um, that is until midnight and after that it’s every Biff and Buffy to fend for themselves ( God help 'em’) I’m guessing Black folks will be so tired of hearing it , this will finally do the trick…..except in  perhaps Compton, where the N-Word and jherri curls flow more fluently than water….still.




7. Hire Justin Beiber and Hannah-Montana to sing a duet about it…..

   Dude....Ya’ just gotta’ love that Beiber Kid and Miley  Cyrus is the new Britney, minus the side-order of crazy!

So here’s my modest proposal: we have these two little," white-bread wonders"create a chart-topping song about “The N-Word” to be played ‘ad nauseum’ on every radio station and in between every commercial on Nickelodeon! Eventually every kid in America will be so SICK of hearing it there will be an anti-N-word backlash so huge, that  no one will be caught dead saying it for fear of appearing ‘un-cool’.



6. Create an episode of “The Boondocks” about it.

Here’s something ground-breaking: Characters gratuitously call each other the “N-word” in hopes of showing Black people how truly self-loathsome and….WAIT, hold-up...( *pauses to read memo*)…my bad, that idea has actually INCREASED the acceptance of the word….uh, never mind….. NEXT!


5. Film a new, Spike Lee joint : “Mo-Bettah’ Uses For You-sez' Than The “N-Word’….....Fever”

   In Spike’s well-loved & unique style;actors would speak directly into the camera about how wack the “N-Word” is, followed by typical ‘Spike-isms’ such as pulling actors on that weird, slow-moving crane and dream-sequences with the ‘art-house’ camera angles of how THEY would handle Black folks too “Bamboozled” to stop using the word … one of which would be to give them a ‘hundred headaches’.. ya’ d@mn skippy! *Sound track by Public Enemy (minus “Flava-Flave” for obvious reasons)




4. Have Oprah do a show about it:

Special guests could include: Mel Gibson, Dr. Laura Schlesinger, Michael Richards and surviving members of the third Reich discussing why the term means so much to them. Dr. Oz can even come on and explain why the “N-word” is sooooo unhealthy for our bodies to use, then Dr. Phil can come scream at all of them about how their racist reputations are killing their careers and “How’s that working for ya’?” followed by Oprah herself banning the word forever…or else! (And we don’t want to find out what “or else” means, do we now...Arsenio?)


3.  Ask Beyonce` to do a public service announcement campaign against it on all the major networks and cable channels………

 It’ll be like a televised game of “Simon-Says” but with much higher stakes! Everybody knows Beyonce`and her magical, mechanical hand can do ANYTHING and if she’ll throw in a half-nekkid performance of her “Uh-Ohh--Uh-Ohh” dance while condemning the word….I think she’ll have the nation’s  FULL attention…..okay, at least half the nation anyway.



2. Have President Obama tax it :

 Put a $100 fine on anyone saying the word in public from here on out and we could probably pay off the national debt by “New Years Eve” ( by Christmas if someone can bug the central offices of Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin )


..and the number one way to ‘KILL’ the “N-word” once and for all is to ( drum roll please)…..



1. Just stop saying it and take the power out of it…seriously.

 It’s a bastard word that’s been embraced for far too long: ignorantly created by some racist Whites to keep our ancestors in check,...THEN twisted around and re-claimed by Blacks for survival so they could endure the pain inflicted by it ( Among other atrocities) to rob us of our humanity! Now it’s the big, BLACK elephant in the room that everyone’s too scared to shoot and take out of it's misery. Even though it’s never cool for Whites to use it…Black folks NEED to stop saying it as well. Sure, it won’t happen overnight but if Blacks survived the middle passage, killing one stupid word can be done………um, can’t it?


....your thoughts please.
