I finally saw the movie, "There Will Be Blood" today, and I must admit it was damn good. It was a bit slow in the beginning, but by the end of the movie it definitely picked up. Daniel Day-Lewis has to be one of the most intense actors I have ever seen. Each and every time I see a movie of his, he seems to take the most challenging of roles available, and he makes the most of them. Also, during my Saturday outing, I had the pleasure of going to the National Portrait Gallery to see two different exhibits. One exhibit was an extremely lackluster one that centered around hip hop, and the other was an exhibit that basically featured photographs of influential African-Americans. It was during this exhibit that I realized(for the 345th time) what a fantastic job my parents did on informing me of my history. I am quite sure I was annoying my girlfriend during this exhibit, because I was giving her additional information of the pictured African-American legends that were featured. So if you happen to be in DC before the first week of March, please go to the National Portrait Gallery.

That is all for now..I need to be sleep right now, but my primal side is calling...

I saw these two exhibits on Friday...thought the same thing about the photos of the hip-hop exhibit...but Kehinde Wiley's work is blinged-out, humorous and over-the-top, and since he's only 31...I give him props for "making it" as a visual artist, and being appreciated before his death...or overdose.

The other exhibit I really enjoyed...and yeah, I totally was there with my boyfriend reflecting pridefully on our history. Oh, and two words...Eartha Kitt...hot!

Thanks for the heads up to see these Rashad. I wish there was more in "Recognize" though. Especially some female MCs.

"...Resistance" on the other hand was unwieldy. It needs more focus. I was inspired, but would have liked fewer shots, more direction.

Does that mean you got some? I'm jealous!
