And yet ants are so productive...



http://www.slideshare.net/effat57/the-ant-story



Never discount the little guy over the big guy because "Titans" are built up, massively supported by and often voted into power by those ants that are taken for granted!


We are all ants to some degree we just need the right agenda and the right leader to lead us in that agenda and that leader would never have to ask for anything ever again because the ants would get it for him saving him all the trouble!

That would be like playing a sport for free or to win a prize... Would you rather play And 1 street ball at a famous park for yo boyz to gawk at or the NBA with Nike shoe options and larger crowds?


Sounds like a bit of hostility going on around here... Did I wear out my welcome somewhere? ::)

And why is that?


He is subject to scrutiny just as anyone before or after him!


It was okay for him to attack Jay Z and others of our generation so he is fair game also!


If you bring attention to yourself in any way you are part of the public domain of which you are seeking support for your cause!


There is no black leader that gets a pass you were a part of the Birth of A Nation comic that was critical of Farrakhan... Did the Nation of Islam respond to you about his many years of service and your ability to critique him?


Sure he can get the "Elder" card of respect but that does not mean there should be silence about any actions he takes today!


It can't be Isaac Hayes on South Park mocking everybody else's religion until it hits close to what you believe... Keep it fair!


I respect dude but he has missteps like every other human being plus he admitted from his own words that "He Failed" Martin's kids... I didn't say that he did he said it himself!


As a citizen of the black community which expands to Africa I can turn to my South African wife and be critical of Mandela as long as it is done in respect!


I have in-laws that no him personally so when we meet face to face I'll show him his propers point blank but that does not mean that I agree with everything about him just because he is an Icon!

Hard Choices / Soul Train: Dancing With The Stars!
« on: October 17, 2013, 09:33:27 pm »
Your hard choice if you choose to take it either you have to dance down the Soul Train line for 3 months worth of episodes or take part in the Dancing With The Stars challenge for the full season!


For the Soul Line you can choose your own dance and on The Stars your dance is chosen for you by your dance teacher/partner!


The fact that you cannot dance at all is no excuse because you are getting on one of the two dance floors... Gun point if necessary!

If Belafonte feels that he failed Martin with his kids then he should give the items back to them and let them take it from there and keep it moving!


This is one of those growing up things the adult children will have to adjust to as far as the relevancy of the King legacy in the now!


At some point Belafonte also has to find other ways to help his programs like supporting the Black Super Hero movement which counteracts the gangs he is trying to help!


It's time to give young black men a new set of ideals for today's age and let the past be the past!


The King kids are all grown whereas these wayward youth need something that fits their agenda today!


If you know Belafonte Reggie you should reach out to him about Black Panther, Milestone Comics or something along that line because the civil rights activism is dated and apparently not working if it has come to this!


This is the digital age where hardcopies are not even worth anything much once they are posted on the internet!


It was never money that stopped gang activity it was always ideals that did the trick with no money down!

This reminds me of the Kobe Bryant situation where his parents were attempting to auction off his memorabilia as legitimate owners of the items in question... The case was eventually settled and family healing ensued afterwards!


I think the problem here is that the King family did not mind Belafonte owning those things for years out of respect for who he was but once he starts to sell them to someone else the problems of someone outside the family (Belafonte is family by default) having them arises!


Don't sell them and there is no problem but once they are put up for auction for any cause then all bets are off because revenue is involved!


The charges levied against Belafonte are similar to the charges Kobe levied against moms and them as that would be the only way to block the sale otherwise they are SOL taking any other angle!


After all, King was their father and they are his children  no matter what even if they may fall short of the legacy from time to time... Compared to Dr. King we all fall short!


Anywho...


I can't wait for my threads here to be auctioned off because my PayPal attorney is ready to go head up against the Hudlin estate like what bring it! 8)


I wonder if Minister Farrahan has some old bow ties once owned by Malcolm X waiting to be auctioned off somewhere and will the Shabazz family go after him for it... Hmmmm?


The Auction House...


"I got those Bobby Seale steel toe jet black boots over here... Po Po blood still on the bottoms!"


"Rosa Parks tea cups right here... Green tea stains still in them priced to sell along with the very seat taken from the bus she refused to give up her spot on!"


"Jesse Owens unwashed socks that he wore in front of Hitler for the big race... They are kind of moldy and statically clung together but they are certified authentic!"


Start your bidding...

Curtis I'm always TROLLING even when I'm not! ;D


Now let's go to church for the gospel truth...


If THE Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King were alive today he would be Jesses Jackson or Al Sharpton trying to get a gig to capitalize upon his fame assuming of course that he was never assassinated in the first place!


A man has to eat and also support his family so at some point he would have had to invest in something one way or another... That means get a job after the civil rights era moved on!


The children of Dr. King did not grow up in the same drama that their father did so they are the gatekeepers of ideals that have to some degree been fulfilled on certain levels so maintaining the legacy is an ever moving goalpost that sometimes teleports causing missed field goals!


This problem is similar to the ones the late Malcolm X family has had dealing with such an iconic black leaders legacy... You can't really blame either family because none of us have had that type of pressure or responsibility placed on our shoulders by default!


Now Harry Belafonte  does have a credible case in that he did put in a lot of work on behalf of Dr. King but no matter what his legacy rightfully belongs to the children of the man he helped regardless of the sacrifices this work entailed!


If HEF blew up overnight because of my TROLLING making it a revenue generating machine and Reggie were assassinated by cyber ninjas from an alternate dimension then his wife and kids by law have power of attorney to collect on them funds all day every day!


Flex: "But I did so much work in the Hard Choices threads!"

Mrs. Hudlin: "Yeah thanks, CHA-CHING... OOPS I mean I miss my boo Reggie! Aw lawd help me now!"

Tarantino: "Another residual check for Django... Sorry about your loss ma'am!"

Mrs. Hudlin: "DIZAMM! Reggie would want me to go shopping with that check... To make me feel better right!"

Curtis Metcalf: "I think you all are mismanaging the Reggie Hudlin Legacy!"

Reggie's Kids: "Whatevs Uncle Curtis... We want a Playstation 4 an Xbox One and a pet giraffe keep it moving partner Love Your Smile!"

Okay... At first I was with Belafonte up until the auction part!


He is selling something valuable for another cause when he should just be hosting fundraisers for that cause to raise money instead!


I could see if he was just holding onto the memorabilia for friendships sake but once he started to sell them all bets are off!


Why not start his own museum or have an art gallery type gathering charging admission to see some of Dr. King's words without selling them off!


I can't wait until I have an estate and my son can sue HEF for all these wonderful posts that I made over the years!


Reggie you better have a good lawyer because some of my threads are classics and my son will want to get PAID... While mourning me of course! ;)

Don't forget the under age sex issue! :o

All this talk about money...


If you really love making music go touring wherever whenever and build a name on the circuit first instead of worrying about record sales!


The best artists from Motown only needed a microphone and a stage and they are many times better than these overnight pop sensations that come and go!


What happened to the band in the garage vying for opening gigs and working their way up the food chain by their performances getting better each time?


All the time spent worrying about the internet when they could be composing classics that expand beyond the web!


Do they remember what a guitar even looks like versus their computer?


Which is the business end of the trumpet... Now blow!

WOW Ture... Like Dayum!


I am speechless after all of that!


Except... He does need a rogues gallery with a tad bit more consistency!


Most other characters have a regular villains to fall back on where as Black Panther still sort of hops around from one extreme to another facing other characters established foes!

En Vogue you could bring home to yo momma... Some of the other group members could be classified as cray cray!


I don't want my house burned down nor do I want to look up and see that my lady that I had just built relations with be replaced by a new member and then another new member of the group!


I need some degree of consistency... En Vogue for the win!!!

I heard you sneeze Marvelous so naturally I assumed the worst! ;D


Are you familiar with the Boxx line of computers?


http://www.boxxtech.com


I was pressed for time at Siggraph one year so I never got to test one out... I bought an iMac last year with 2 TB of storage and 16 GB of memory and will soon upgrade to something more diabolically fiendish later as I build up my digital effects studio workstation!


I need a good reason not to get the new Mac Pro that is designed in black to look sexy as whatever so if you can break down the 411 of buying or building a PC from scratch I'm all ears!


http://www.apple.com/mac-pro/


Clearly the ability to swap out graphics cards according to the task at hand is enticing but if it's a homemade PC does this mean I will be like one of those Harley Davidson bikers that spends more time fixing it than actually riding it!
