Chilling with MJB...

As I go about responding to the Mvita Don post, my b-day post and my Chops for Days post on Tafsiri too, am all jazzed up for The Breakthrough, the new release by the Queen of HipHop-Soul Mary J. Blige (Dec 20, 2005). This montage and the other 5 in the series I made last weekend [flash that smile if I sent you any of them in the past few days:)], is a tribute to MJB for her ongoing contribution to good, soulful music. I intentionally inserted the mid pic as a reminder that am working on meeting the requests from the Mvita Don post.
PS: *I am announcing the winner(s) of the Mvita Don post, in the next post. Gotta do that. Lately, I've been swamped in work-- loots of work; but work, life, more work & more life is not an excuse*
-Screenshot of the new joint. Click pic to be redirected there-
I am pleased to announce that I'm opening doors to my new home over here. Please feel free to drop by for some munchies, music, videos, audio & all the good stuff. All 3 joints will be running at the same time & same tempo so kick off your shoes & let's have loads of fun!
PS: I am not abandoning Maarifa or Tafsiri, No way!! New joint will be home to more pics, and stuff surrounding this blogger's other interests.
PSA-Public Service Announcement: I'm sure by now you've noticed that about 90% of my posts have 3-word titles à la : Chilling with MJB..., It's My Birthday!, After This Interruption, Pride and Joy, If Bob Visited, Akiey Con Fuego! It Wasn't Me , just to name a few. This happens for a reason or three but it sure brings to mind a good friend whose 3 names have 6 letters each to make a triple sixx!, lol! tsk, tsk!

Guess, Awww, sorry to see my new site mistook your comments for vitamins(not too funny!). Will fine tune it to perfection hoping their server hasn't become as unpredictable as Blogger..err, could that be another reason why you went babe? I appreciate your several attempts to comment & glad to get your 0.02 Pounds Sterling input over there.
-Mini-Joy Blogpost & photos? I know you aren't too far off in pic editing. I agree with you on MJB looking divinely regal. Wish I could let her know:)!
-Stalk me worse than a Paparazzi G,catch me & EVERY trick in the 'brick wall' is yours. Again thanxxx!

Guess & Poi Pt3,: Girls, when you decide to take this outside(assuming you aren't going to share a cigarette,LOL!), do invote all the boys so we can all Furahi deh!!

Maitha, You're right bro, the couple songs have heard have stuck in my head & brought back the Mary from "What's the 411?", My Life & Share My World but greater passion and a sense of purpose. It's mos def a keeper.

Akiey, I just heard the track "Be without you" and damn man, she is amayze-ing. Cant wait to hear the rest of the album.

@Poi - from one mummy needing catfighter to another, shouldnt we be showing love right about now? I bet we can share akiey and he wouldnt have a bit of a problem with it (wink wink).
What says you two?

@Akiey - lololol at your three word titles - and the 666 named friend - is this person evil or are they triple siXXX (walking away before blogger throws me out :)

Thanks everybody for the New Year's wishes & also for visiting the new joint I set up.
As I explained on Tafsiri, I have temporarily moved the pics, content & comments from the new siet & housed them on Tafsiri for the time being as I sort out some audio & video issues in the new place.

Everyone that went out/is going out to buy Mary J Blige's new release, am sure it's worth every listen. I've already entered it into my top MJB releases alongside What's The 411, My Life, and Share My World...ofcourse all her other releases are great in their own special way.
-For all her fans the Be Without You on large screen above is dedicated 'specially for you. Enjoy!
