QUE! QUE! QUE! Now I waited after about three more viewings to talk about this boy so I can give a good analysis. Now I am in no way excusing his recent behavior, but I am offering explanations as to why he is feeling and acting the way he is.

At the beginning of the season Que kept feeling as though his opinions were not being valued. He felt that no one wanted Day26 to be more than just a normal R&B group, and that no one else in the group was compromising on trying to decide just what Day26 was, especially for this new album. His point is completely valid. New things are becoming the "it" thing to do, such as the rock/pop combo.

I agree with him in the sense that I think R&B music is beginning to encompass various types of music styles and so he believes that they should be moving along with this growing definition. However, other group members want to resort to the regular R&B. So Que feels as though no one is valuing his opinion and when Diddy came and thought the joint he picked out was hot, he really felt like see why can't yall listen to me.

Additionally, Willie would press his buttons simply because when Will said something, it seemed to be of importance to the group, but if Que said something, it didn't mean anything and Willie didn't care, and it seemed like no one else did either.

Then, Que gets in a fight that he supposedly wins but yet they steal all of his stuff. But his brothers didn't really seem to support him through that.

Then to top that off, Que's mom comes in and basically sides with the rest of his group members who all already cast him off as being crazy, and she says his problem is that he doesn't want to listen. But the problem with that is that as her son, she should understand that Que is a little more sensitive that the average guy, so for her to do that in front of the other group members, made him feel like no one was in his corner.

So when you combine all of this, among others, it makes sense why he's been acting all irrational. There's all these things on his mind and as the youngest he feels like everyone is lecturing him as well as outcasting him. So with all these things weighing on him, it's no wonder why he keeps acting the way he is. It's too much and it's messing with him making rational and practical decisions.

Diddy should have picked up on this alot sooner, but now Que is going to possibly have to suffer because these issues weren't ironed out before they got this bad. Poor Que.

We Need Different

Two words. Keri Hilson. Honestly when she first came out I was like who is this chick?? But she's honestly in her own league. She's an excellent writer, and her vocal range is pretty sick, if you don't believe me, listen to the adlibs on her song "Make Love." I need another listen of the album to truly make a real judgment but so far so good. Although I don't like all of the songs, I did like the fact that each song was pretty different.

No one can say she's trying to take Beyonce's spot in the sense that she is not only in the Pop/R&B lane, but includes techno, experimental, etc. because she definitely is a story teller. And that's something we need more of. Keri can definitely paint a good picture or action or feeling in her songs and that's extremely important as an artist, although some artists just get by because of their looks. But Keri was honestly blessed with it all.

Honestly when I think of my own competition for when I become more famous, I think about Keri Hilson. She is doing what I want to do. Luckily however, we have two completely different looks and two completely different sounds. So I definitely look forward to working with her in the future. So go cop the album. And here's "Make Love"

Flying Cars

Uhm so there's this car they're working on. And yeah they want it to fly too. Apparently the max time it's been in flight is 30 seconds and traveled over 3,000 feet. I just thought this was something that was pretty interesting. Oh and it's called Terrafugia. Here's a picture.


Uhm so apparently there's an XBox 360 Soap bar and no I'm not kidding. What exactly would one need from an XBox 260 Soap bar? Like why is this invention necessary? I mean I guess the same can be asked of other random things but soap?? Like you need it in your life that much that it needs to be a soap? I mean it looks cool/real. Whatever here are the specs.

Soap Ingredients:

· Coconut Oil
· Shea Butter
· Palm Oil
· Castor Oil
· Safflower Oil
· Glycerin (kosher, of vegetable origin)
· Purified Water
· Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent)
· Sorbitol (moisturizer)
· Sorbitan Oleate (emulsifier)
· Soy Bean Protein (conditioner)
· Titanium Dioxide (mineral whitener used in opaque soaps)
· Fragrance and color

Love, Sex & Magic

Honestly, I don't care for this song AT ALL. I think it's stupid personally. I don't really know what they were trying to go for with it but here it is if you haven't heard it. Straight garbage if you ask me! It sounds like they tried to do a Janet/Michael Jackson thing and it's just not good at all.

Chris Brown University

So apparently Chris Brown has decided to enroll into college. This is great for so many reasons. I truly believe things happen for a reason and although this domestic abuse thing is still leaving a bad taste in the mouths of the public, I think it's a good move.

Going to college will help him in many ways. For one it will take him out of the public eye slightly and make him start focusing on important things such as getting this degree. He will have to face new and important obstacles that nothing but college can give you. The social stresses combined with the academic stresses are definitely life long experiences and teach you alot. So this will be good for him and I'm glad they've considered this, as most artists don't. It will let his fans see him doing something positive and help with damage control as well. So good job Chris!

Lets Go to Church

So today is the first time in a long time where I feel so filled and excited and blessed, and that was because I went to church. My friend has been trying to get me to come with him to this church by our school and I just wasn't having it. Waking up all early and whatnot. But it didn't start until 12 and I realized I had no more excuses.

After the things that have been going on in my life lately, I felt as though I needed some guidance, and where better to go than church?

I don't want to preach to you all, but honestly, when you feel that God is speaking to you, talking to you, sending you signs through your dreams, or even through the actions of your friends (whether they be positive or negative) You need to answer that and go to church.

Now let me say this. I'm not even putting myself out here as a perfect Christian or a perfect person. Because I am neither. I am just a new messenger of the Lord and have accepted my job to help bless and uplift others in the name of Jesus. Now I know people don't blog about this kind of stuff, but I am not people.

I know who wakes me up every morning. I know who makes sure I have heat when it's cold and food when I'm hungry. I know who makes sure my tuition is paid each and every semester. I know who puts me through and stays with me through the obstacles to make me a better person and appreciate his blessings. So it's only right that I give Him the credit he deserves, and the best way to do that is to not only proclaim his name and believe, but to bring others to Him.

Today in church we learned three main things. I believe he preached from the gospel of Mark 2:1-6 I believe.

But basically we learned about how Jesus spoke at this house and it was completely packed inside and outside. And basically these men were bringing this paralytic man to him for healing and were not deterred because of the crowd. What they did once they realized they could not get this man into the place the conventional way, they cut open the roof and slowly dropped the paralytic man down into the house to get to Jesus.

So the three things were:
A. You have to be willing to not only pray for yourself and ask for blessings for yourself, but also ask for blessings for others. You have to want for you to get what God has instore for you, but not until someone else get's what God has in store for them. (as opposed to the corporate mentality of "im gunna get mines")
B. You have to not only believe in what he can do, but you have to speak with your actions instead of with your words.
C. You have to be willing to do all of these things no matter how hard it seems or how many obstacles there are.

He gave the example of how when we go to the club and the line is super long, we never let that stop us from getting in. We might try to sneak in from the side, etc. etc. so we need to take that approach not only for ourselves, but also for others. :)

Hope you are filled by this as much as I was!
