The Goddess Butterfly Geisha

From the moment I was six I felt sexy. And let me tell you it was hell, sheer hell, waiting to do something about it. – Bette Davis

this blog will be a mixture of my thoughts, ideas, things I adore, things I love...basically all over the place. Hi my name is Rashida and I am a scatterbrain. Welcome to my shenanigans! ;-)

As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.

One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”

Reasons why I laugh when people say he wasn’t a real musician.

haven’t seen her be so affectionate towards a male co-star since jamie

Let’s just say for the sake of argument Chris Bosh comes out and says he’s gay.  Will you people then stop talking about and trying to cyber-bully him? Will you feel really proud of yourself and say “I knew it, I f*cking knew it!” while you thump your chest? Or will you continue to think that your lame attempts to belittle another human being make you a better person? So what if his movements are little more finessed than most men that doesn’t negate the fact that man is living his dream, making millions and is a winner! Hearing and seeing supposed grown women and especially men talk about and post pictures of Chris Bosh “being gay” is tired as hell and ignorant as all get out.  Get over yourselves and get over the gays. Shout out to Chris Bosh for standing tall in the face of slander and hate.  Whatever his sexual orientation (he has a wife and kids), he’s proven he has strength. Weaker men would have crumbled under such nonsense.

What the future holds for you depends entirely on your capacity for love.

And for that, you must have absolute and total confidence in what you are doing. Don’t let others say: ‘That road is better’ or ‘That route is easier’.

The greatest gift God gave us is the power to make decisions.

The adventure of the days to come needs to be full of romance, because the world needs that; therefore, when you are mounted on your horse, feel the wind on your face and enjoy the sense of freedom.

But don’t forget that you have a long journey ahead. If you surrender totally to the romance of it all, you might fall.
If you don’t stop occasionally to let both you and your horse rest, your horse might die of thirst or exhaustion.

And precisely at the moment when everything seems to be going well and your dream is almost within your grasp, that is when you must be more alert than ever. Because when your dream is almost within your grasp, you will be assailed by terrible guilt.

You will see that you are about to arrive at a place where very few have ever set foot and you will think that you don’t deserve what life is giving you.
You will forget all the obstacles you overcame, all that you suffered and sacrificed. And because of that feeling of guilt, you could unconsciously destroy everything that took you so long to build.

That is the most dangerous of obstacles, because renouncing victory has about it a certain aura of sanctity.

But if a man understands that he is worthy of what he has struggled so long for, he will realise that he did not get there alone and must respect the Hand that led him.
