Day Two of the Curly Twist-Out…

Yesterday I sported curly twists and was happy with Day One, but was concerned with how it would look after I’d slept in “the mushroom cloud” all night. Surprisingly, it looked pretty good. But I decided to twist the first 1/4 of my head, pin behind the ears, and let the rest stay loose. I sprayed a little water and shea butter on that part, and here’s how it came out:

Regarding Broomhilda: Was she worth being rescued and why was she…

Quentin Tarantino’s new film Django: Unchained has stirred a lot of different thoughts, feelings, opinions and emotions in people; about slavery, Django killing so many white people on screen, gun control, etc. but the feedback I found the most interesting was some of the commentary regarding the Broomhilda character played by Kerry Washington from black women. I want to address three questions/comments that are a conglomeration of the multitude of comments regarding this key character.

Nine Year-Old Phenom Quvenzhané Wallis Gets Oscar Nod…

I got the thrill of the day while watching Good Morning America when the news of the Oscar nominees broke in live. Most of the movies and actors I knew of but was blown away when they got the category of ‘Best Actress’. There was Jessica Chastain for “Zero Dark Thirty,” Jennifer Lawrence for “Siver Linings Playbook,” Naomi Watts for “The Impossible,” Emmanuelle Riva for “Amour” I was listning to the nominees and thought, “ok yeah, yeah whatever. Lastly, they announced Quvenzhané Wallis for Beast of the Southern Wild. My concentration was broken for the next few hours as I rushed to look up all I could on this wonderfully talented little girl.
