A to B Sides



Click here

At first glance, this song speaks to a war, a battle.

But not on the B-side. On the B-side you’re there with him and as the song begins to play….

You’ve had a big fight. Mama crabs been wrong, Papa crabs been foul. More foul and more hurtful than either of you care to admit.

But your heart. Your heart.

“Aiming for the stars with a point & hollow” is not quite what you meant to be doing. The love runs deep but you don’t know what to do with it because no ones ever had the power to bring that out in you. And the words and fights and hate all culminate…. at 2:15…, as you climax and cum from the deepest part of your frame and reframe and then reframe again and realize the negative was what you needed to get through to the light. You wanted an easy luv?

“Matter over mind if we’re being honest”. ❤️

🎤: Cautious Clay

📺: Insecure, HBO

The B-Sides: Selfish?

CC only recently heard this song. The circumstances are not important☝🏽. But crablings I swear, if could write the remix, this would be it. Sing along.

I’m jealous
I want you all to myself
I swear
You don’t need nobody else
I swear
I want you all to myself
Because I’m jealous, yea
You don’t need nobody else
I want you all to myself

Now that I got you
Here boy
I’m not gon’ play wit you
Because there’s a lot of things
That I wanna say to you
Boy you know you the ish
Audemars Piguet on ya wrist
Bishes all on your dick
But we not gon’ trip
Cause I’m not ready for quick commitments
And I swear i hate seein you with them
Yea, yea
And I know you ain’t tryna just own me
And I know your emotions are lonely
I can’t help how I feel
I’m just keepin’ it real
They can’t have you boy

Because I’m jealous
I want you all to myself
I swear
You can’t touch nobody else
I swear
I want you all to myself
Because I’m jealous, yea
I want you all to myself
I swear

Can’t help it
You know I get stuck when you
Come around
And them base ones be sick ’cause we be on some shit
Yeah they know I’m gon’
Hold you down
Hold hands in da whip
Tell me how you been wit your ends
We gon’ go to the crib
Make some drinks… cookin’ up a dinner
Boy I know I’m fuckin’ with a winner
Ain’t Nothing like these reckless ones I swear
Name a place, I’ll follow wit you there
I’d do anything to make you laugh
And you can have anything just ask
But just know that I’m jealous
And I swear I can’t help it
But it’s all for you
Yea it’s all for you

I’m jealous
I want you all to myself
I swear
You cant love nobody else


If you have watched the Game of Thrones season 6 finale, were you blown away emotionally?

What amazing storytelling and suspense and emotion and love and hate and…forgiveness.

One of the things about this episode that grabbed me so fiercely was Light of the Seven. So different from the usual score, and so perfect that it was as crucial as the wildfire. Fire! Like literally.

If anyone doubts the power of music to tell a story, just don’t.

As one fan put it: “you know epic shit is going to happen when the episode starts with this music

My parents use to play this when we were little kids. I couldn’t know what it meant but I would belt it out in my living room concerts (my Dad would sub for Barry’s part, hilarious).

But now that I do, this stays fire. Because really, until this popped up the other day I didn’t know how to put this to words.

Because yea, make it a crime to be left out in the cold. Or pretend to care when they don’t. It’s bullshit really. Makes me feel like this, when I really wanna feel like this , but its all good. I’ll just work with this,  cuz at least I know I care. I was devotion.

ipod shenanigans ☯

Sneaky l’il iphone, waking things up that I work hard to shut down. Random, but this song stops me in my tracks because sometimes I feel like Lucy Witmore….Not that I’m the biggest expert on grunge ska..but that moment in 50 First Dates, when no matter how ditsy Lucy seemed or how hard her situation could be, Henry still loved her. And then set their world on fire. Anyway back to reality♥CC



Hard at work today and taking my smoke music break.  My “Iconic” playlist is on and I hereby give thanks for the audios & visuals.

So.. thanks to :

Lenny Kravitz 5 for “I Belong to You”

Flashdance  for Irene Cara & the inspiration behind my 50 deconstructed tees

Christion..Ghetto Hymns for all the “Full of Smoke” hustlas

Tamia for the hologram of CC on the beach at sunset

No Doubt..for that night, freshman year in college, when “Don’t Speak” came on and I was an instanttttttt die-hard

Minnie Ripperton for Perfect Angel..cuz she was


****UPDATE UPDATE: So Crablings,

A) The RIAA aggressively shut my video down. Oddly, I am both proud and angry. I’m prangry.. Must have done something right!!

B) This bish was pregnant the whole time. I can’t


People always wonder WHAT CC’s obsession is with Ms. Knowles. Lord knows there are millions of us fans/stans.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh Killing me softly

All I know is I have adored her since day 1, since she was getting booed at her own concerts. Since the DC fiascos. I didn’t know why then, other than I knew what it felt like to be judged harshly.

People say she hogs the spotlight. I wonder just how anyone is able to stop their own shine? As if.

I adore her because she’s happy. Talented. Savvy. Imperfect. Fails as much as she succeeds. Has cellulite. Endured love drama. Family drama. Can’t eat too much. And she channeled that all into millions and fame while staying true to her dreams.

Everyone should own themselves. Period.

Bey takes a bow

Her Roseland concert epitomized all that is loved about her and that was a lifetime collection of 90 minutes for CC. What I did to secure this spot was 150% worth it.

Sincerely Yours,



How ya'll doing tonight?

Cuz..I Care ..I know it don't matter too much..


Today’s song in my head:

Sale el Sol

1st Verse…loosely translated:

I never thought I would care about
The tone of your message…
You left me with the impression
That I was just another heavy thing… in your baggage  ~Shakira

In a Lykke Li kinda mood tonight

one of CC’s all time favorites..the how and where I first heard this a few years ago was serendipity..always with me. I only recently heard the remix and its 3X dope. Perfect mix of man and woman. And makes me think of only one man.

Stereo Love

Available on SkullCandy

RocNation Aviator Headphones (Click Pic for direct link)

Oh. Oh. Oh.
Headphones are art…
Crack to CC’s ears….
A good pair makes music so crystal clear you may actually think Fergie is vocally equivalent to Gwen Stefani.

Here is RocNation’s aviator turn on a classic…
“SkullCandy and Roc Nation have formed a coalition and invented the Aviator headphones,  designed to “offer the best way for people to experience the soundtrack of their lives”, says Jay-Z”

The style definitely trumps Dre’s .. CC hopes to soon vouch for the sound.
But oh. So pretty.

When you’re able do what you love ~ with the one you love

CC wonders…what happens when you can mix love and work effortlessly?

First, love these 2. I have had this video on repeat for awhile after a friend posted it on FB. Over 5 Million hits in one week ***100 of them probably mine*** featuring a sick imitation of Chris Brown, Busta Rhymes, Nikki M, and Weezy F Baby.

This is something people either love or hate, all or nothing, no in between
although if you hate it, leave this blog now (j.k!!) because Amy totally rips it at 1:15.

But after ODing on the video, CC looked up their story, saw a few interviews and what an inspirational love story.
They studied music at the same prestigious arts school, were classically trained in different skills, did their own thing solo and built separate careers, then joined forces and are now on a quick rise…personally and professionally.
Similar interests, equal values, and attraction…Great recipe for luv, life, and happiness, no?

Enjoy (or else)!
