Shernita + Kanye West=(insert indescribable amazing feeling here)

Now, if you know me, then you know how I feel about Kanye West. Hands down, he’s my favorite artist. The only artist in which I have every one of his albums. Fuck what you heard, Kanye is the shit. Period.  And he can do no wrong in my eyes (sue me) I promise you, since I heard Power and Power RMX, I listen to them every day. Those 2 songs ( along with some Tye Tribett, Donald Lawrence and Rick Ross) get me through my rough days. (yes I have rough days too, i think they come along ever so often just to remind me that I am in fact human)

So when I found out that I was auditioning for Kanye West, I thought it was a hoax.

Then… Kanye walks in the audition. God help me.

All 130 of us girls, danced for our lives. Every trick in the book, every move we ever learned, every bit… was left on the dance floor. 130 dropped to 45. Then the waiting….and more waiting…. When I got the news, that me, Shernita Q. Anderson aka Shernitasofly.. would be dancing with Kanye West for an audience of approximately 12 million people, I was speechless. Words could not describe it. And on top of that, this is the first performance my entire family was able to watch.

The next few days would be full of pointed toes, last minute changes and smiles. We got a small glimpse into the world of a misunderstood genius. Honestly, not just because he’s an inspiration to me but Kanye is amazing, genuine and yes, he IS a nice guy. He’s a visionary…very involved in all aspects of his brand and he’s funny. Very funny actually.

Never in a million years would I dream that not only would I be performing with one of my biggest inspirations, but I’d get the chance to actually get to know him a little bit.  And I’m thankful to live in an age where thanks to technology, I am etched in history.. forever.

Here are the links…Im pretty obvious to see but just in case.. Im the only chocolate bald girl lol In Power, Im always on your left and in Runaway.. Im center.

Never Give Up…Your mind can’t even fathom what the Universe has in store for you. Hold tight…its coming….

Air Conditioning.. Enough is Enough

Now I know summer is coming to an end… but the air conditioning isn’t.

I can appreciate some nice cool air just as much as the next person, but is it really necessary to catch pneumonia just from doing simple tasks such as riding the train or shopping? I don’t think so.

Each and every summer, (on our lovely affordable public transportation system *sarcastic* ) I’ve had to ruin my outfit by carrying some sort of sweater or jacket for risk of freezing to death just to get to my destination. Its just not fair. ( I like to look good ya know?)

Or let me dare NOT  walk into some sort of electronics store! The freeze is on. My ears go numb and my nose starts running and by morning… Im popping the Dayquil just to make it through the day. It’s not right.

Summertime in NYC should not lead to possible death from hypothermia…

Although the temperature is cooling down, Im pretty certain the AC will be bumping well into november in many NYC areas. So bundle the hell up.

Headphones PLEASE! NOW! ASAP!

Throughout the years I’ve seen numerous inventions  for the advancement of the human race; the flip phone, platform pumps and depilatory creams. Another wonderful invention was the creation of the headphones. They allow one to enjoy the lovely sounds of music ( podcasts and porn as well) in the privacy of ones own head.  With that being said I have a message for many of todays ghetto youth and just ghetto people in general:

BUY SOME COT DAMN HEADPHONES BEFORE I BLOW THIS PLACE UP!!!

Way too often, my life is disrupted by the loud, muffled sounds of Jeezy, Lil Wayne, or Dj Webstar blasting from some hoodrat’s sidekick. ( or some other wild cell phone device)  The jig is all the way up and I’m pissed off. If you can afford a $179 (with 2 year contract agreement) phone, then I’m sure you can shuffle on over to Bargain Hunter’s and get you some damn headphones.

Seriously.

No one gives a damn if you downloaded all of the hottest new tracks.. keep them to your damn self.

I will be honest though.. one time on the bus, (yea I take the bus from time to time. $89 for a metrocard? I’m swiping from here to Kingdom come) a man was rocking out to We Fall Down by Donnie McClurkin. Amen and Hallelujah.

The Lord said come as you are…just make sure who you are ,(ms or mr headphoneless) doesn’t disrupt who I am. I’ll listen on my own time, not yours. Thanks.

You loved it didn’t you?

There’s more where that came from….

Old folks need to ACT RIGHT!

2010 is almost here and I know everyone is all gung ho about new years resolutions. So, Im gonna share one of mine with you…

One of my resolutions is to continue to restrain from kicking an older persons ass!

Now I know it sounds a little rude and disrespectful but lets be real, yall know yall feel the same way.

Old folks think they run the town tonight, last night.. shit.. every night since Christ was born. They think that because they’ve been on this earth a little longer than some of us, they can do whatever the hell they want and say whatever the hell they want. And Im here to let it be known; it aint going down like that. Yes I have respect for my elders, but sometimes they just get a little out of hand.

For example, Im in the supermarket waiting on line to pay, and because I didn’t move forward in a timely manner (according to her old ass), she decided not only to skip me, but to assault me with her baggage. Then she gonna have the nerve to talk shit. I told old girl straight up, ” Baby boo you bumped me, but one hit from me, and your ass will end up admitted to the nearest hospital. So slow ya role”. Was I wrong for that? I don’t think so. I could have just attacked her like I initially planned on.

They always talk shit about how us “young’ns” don’t have respect and boy how times have changed. Man, fuck that. Last time I checked, before we were 25, 65, or 105, we are all human first. What happened to basic and common courtesy and respect for a fellow human being? I don’t give a damn what you been through or what you’re going through now. You’re gonna have to respect me as well or else things are gonna get crazy. You’re never too old to get checked. Who gon check me boo?.. SHERNITA will!

So in the meantime, I’ll continue to keep it cool for 2010. But make sure and warn your out of control elders that if they cross me, things could get severe. I aint the one.

Flats are out Heels are in.. get into it!

kitten heelSo I’ve noticed lately that the general height of a woman’s shoe heel has decreased. Now don’t get me wrong, Im all for comfort, but I gotta look good in the meantime.

Now 4 inches in my opinion is just too damn high, unless you got a ride to and from the party.(and dont be tardy)  Give me a strong 2.5 to 3 inch heel and Im good to go. But I’ve heard and seen this monstrosity called a Kitten Heel. And Imma be honest… that does not count as a heel or even a real shoe for that matter. A kitten heel is just plain pointless, it clearly doesn’t give enough lift and it makes your legs look like tree trunks. (No thank you) I don’t care if they match your outfit perfectly, I don’t care if they are comfortable.. I don’t even care if you got them for free! It’s just unforgivable.  There’s nothing wrong with a little wedge but the kitten heel… just ruins lives.

Now I know you’re wondering how I feel about sneakers… so here goes…If it don’t have a heel then it better be a high top otherwise.. just throw it in the trash. I’d actually rather you put on a serious sock and walk on releve (a rising up onto full point or half point from the flat of the feet.)….than to have on any type of flat situation. Im just being honest…

Ladies, if you’re gonna step out and show them what its all about, Please put on a shoe that’s appropriate…. flats don’t count. They never have and they never will.

The Gumbo’s Good Ain’t It?

Hope you saved room for seconds….
