When I can’t sleep at night I do one of two things: I read or I listen to music. Last night I found myself doing the latter when I stumbled across a video on YouTube. The video was of a choir from Lincoln University singing one of my favorite Gospel songs “I Know I Been Changed.” I was immediately struck by the soloist’s ,Shavona Antoinette Burton’s, ability to float through the song. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Several weeks ago, my all-time favorite show, A Different World (ADW), was added in its entirety to Netflix. I was ecstatic. After years of being forced to watch ADW only through fan uploads on Youtube, I am able now able to watch it legally at my leisure. While watching, I realized that two of my favorite fictional characters (Winifred “Freddie” Brooks and Whitley Gilbert) are from this show. After considering some of my other favorite characters, two things became blatantly obvious: I like oddballs, and I like Villains. Here are my favorites in no particular order.
The first time I heard this poem by Carvens Lissaint, I cried.
Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day!
