 so... its officially official.. its a BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i cried... alot...

scratch that.. i cried a whole helluva lot!!!  the nurse asked us... did we want to know.. i said yeah...

she said.. its a boy.... me and my wife had picked out names last year, so we were both like... Zion.... Zion's here... and when i said his name.. i lost it... i was in the corner crying for like 10 minutes...

i was overcome with emotion. I was like... i'm gonna have a son... and i wished my dad were here... wither of them... i really needed to speak to a dad today... but alas... twas not to be... I think i may adopt a father figure for these moments... i don't see why not... i've adopted my Grandmother, my aunt and deb marsh and rolled them into a mom figure.... I need to do the same for a father figure.... gonna figure out who that will be...... at least for this part of my journey... my dad dad died when i was 1, and my other day... he doesn't want to know what sex the baby is... and he hasn't been returning my phone calls for the past month... so I dont know whats going on...but I don't have time .. i need some fatherly advise... 
 
i told someone before..i think one of the reasons i'm a good fraternal brother is because i had people along the way to teach me how to be a good brother.... there were members who showed me how to be a good undergraduate brother, and then there were old bruhs who showed me how to be a good older member to younger bruhs.... and that type of mentoring is important.... 
 
a\i think its one of the things missing in our community.. a constant mentor-ship.... from pit to pole.... 
 
but i digress... back to my son... I'm excited and a little bit frightened... i have a human being on the way tha i am responsible for... 
one of the things I've decided..is i'm going into therapy... i need to make sure I am ok... my mom left alot of booby traps in me.. and i've been working diligently for the past 4 years eradicating them from my system.. but I  got a kid on the way now and i need to make sure they are really gone. I don't have time to be lazy on this shit..so I'mma get a mental tune up, and make sure I dont booby trap my kid.... 
 
 
by the way... the name.... Zion Ras Selassie Harris
 
our son!

Scot Pilgrim Vs. The World
movie critic
eclectic_soul
 SO... OH MY GOD i just saw Scott Pilgrim VS The World!!!! And it is either the most Awesome Movie Ever.....or.. The MOST AWESOMEST EVER MOVIE EVER!!!!! 

I'm going to go see it again this weekend! hot damn it was a good movie!!! 

i would write a spoiler/review, but it would consist of the words: "Awesome, splooge, OMG OMG OMG, and hot damn!!"

so yeah, go out and see it now... if you ever played a video game, or called yourself a "gamer" you'll cream on yourself... if you dont or are not, you'll still enjoy it! 
This Movie Shouldn't be Called Scott Pilgrim Vs The World... it should be called   "112 Minutes of Awesome"

What to a Slave is the 4th of July (a speech by fredrick douglass in 1852)
Gibbs
eclectic_soul


Fellow citizens, pardon me, allow me to ask, why am I called upon to speak here today? What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence? Are the great principles of political freedom and of natural justice, embodied in that Declaration of Independence, extended to us? and am I, therefore, called upon to bring our humble offering to the national altar, and to confess the benefits and express devout gratitude for the blessings resulting from your independence to us?

You may rejoice, I must mourn. To drag a man in fetters into the grand illuminated temple of liberty, and call upon him to join you in joyous anthems, were inhuman mockery and sacrilegious irony. Do you mean, citizens, to mock me by asking me to speak today? If so, there is a parallel to your conduct. And let me warn that it is dangerous to copy the example of nation whose crimes, towering up to heaven, were thrown down by the breath of the Almighty, burying that nation in irrevocable ruin! I can today take up the plaintive lament of a peeled and woe-smitten people.
