Supa Doesn't Have to be a Star...

Nina Simone - a true supa sister!

You can come as you are with just your heart
And I'll take you in, though you're rejected and hurt,
To me you're worth, girl, what you have within.
Oh honey, I don't need no superstar cause I'll accept you as you are.
You won't be denied cause I'm satisfied with the love that you can inspire.
You don't have to be a star, baby, to be in my show!
~ Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr, 1976

Supa on Flics: The Departed

So Supa, being the movie fanatic she is, took a break from studying to go peep Scorsese's latest flic The Departed - long story short, she enjoyed the shits. Classic Scorsese - Eye-talian mobster crime drama with dark comedic moments and plenty of shoot 'em up and gore; moral ambiguity with the characters across the board: Nicholson was a raving lunatic, Mark Wahlberg was sinister and delightful (with his fine white boy ass), Damon took his kid-from-Southie personna to new levels, and Leo earned my respect by actin' his ass off and basically morphing into a mini-Ray Liotta...

The movie was a tad long (2 1/2 hours) and Supa had BIG BIG problems with the ending (no spoilers) - but it was 7 bucks well spent. (matinee, yo). Supa agrees with the critics, it'll be up for a gang of awards come Oscar time. Go check it.

Supa's Top Three Favorite Scorsese flics:

1. Casino

2. Goodfellas

3. Bringing Out the Dead/Taxi Driver (tie)

it's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you...
without a dope rhyme to step to!

Blogger Fam: My supa apologies!!! Ya girl just went all ghost on ya, hunh?! Truth is, my offline life has just been so full, it's starting to overshadow my online one, feel me? All good shit though, trust.

Supa's got some things going on, and she's been standing at the crossroads...(this way, or that way??)...Thought about retiring my blog, contemplating the reasons why I created it, wondered if my objectives had been accomplished, yadda yadda...(how many times a week do we bloggers say "I'm bout to stop blogging!") At any rate, Supa's a year deep in the game, and that was her original goal. BUT - I've slowly realized, blogging is a fun creative outlet, helps prime the artistic channels, and besides, I kinda like ya'll fools. So, Supa thinks she'll carry on - for now. (heh heh)

So here's the deal: Supa has jumped from the Corporate Slave Ship (leave of absence from the C.S.S.), in order to go back to school (more on this later! exciting!!), spend more quality time with herself and the RR's, up her writing game, re-connect with friends and love ones, grieve, ponder, slow down, figure out my next move, and just basically bask in this beautiful mess we call LIFE. That's right, boys and girls: ya girl is officially unplugged from the Matrix..chose to swallow that mufuckin' RED pill. Supa 'aint neva been on no punk shit...

Ha. Please! It was some scary shit ya'll...but I did it, and I'm doin' it, and there have been sooo many little divine signs that have let me know I'm on the right path - so I'm grateful. Like one of my favorite quote says:

"There are the risks you can't afford to take..and then, there are the risks you can't afford NOT to take...."

So - I'll fill ya in later, promise!! Just know my posting might be a lil' sporadic. Single Ma - your book is on the way. (thanks to everyone who copped the 3P Remix!!) Cocoa Girl, you gon' get that return call! Sheeit, I'm about 3 weeks behind on emails...on my way to a study group now. What made my ass think going back to school was going to be like going back to 11th grade??

I'm lovin' every unsure challenging scary exhilirating minute of it!!!

'Till then, beautiful ones!

Supa (ova here trippin' all over my!)
