"i’ve spent half my life trying to understand bukowski
so that i could write poetry like he did.
i guess i’ve since realised that
bukowski wrote to make people wish they were bukowski, and that is art in itself:
when words can make you wish you were a worse human being just so that you could be better at your craft!
the very sacrifice of self to another in order to sacrifice yourself again,
to lose yourself in someone who lost themselves at the bottom of a hipflask
and to try to find yourself in a circle of screaming at your loved ones between meals.
the notes of a dirty old man have brought thousands screeching to a halt
to ponder the profundity of bad, bad people,
to glorify the terrible in the world for the rest of their days.
heroes are only human."
Ladies Night Remix- Lil Kim, Left Eye, Angie Martinez, Da Brat & Missy Elliott.
Let’s discuss how EPIC this video is, shall we?
5 quick things:
1.The Queen Bee, Left Eye, Brat AND Missy singing the hook? That’s a recipe for pure SLAYAGE. (Oh, and Angie’s part was cute.)
2. EVERYBODY is in this damn video. Serious black girl power right here. Queen Latifah, Mary J., SVW, Total, Xscape & more. Basically almost every prominent woman in 90’s black entertainment is in this video. Greatness.
3. Mary J.’s dancing was EVERYTHING. Although I’m sure she had a few dranks (yes dranks) in her system but nevertheless.
