Held the door for you
You looked back
I did too
Our Eyes met.
I look back again
Our eyes meet again.
Connection it was instant.
Gazing, blazing, amazing
A vision you are...
I stare...too long..
Trip when I walk
Skipped when I talk..
Me and these DREAMIN EYES of mine.
Did I feel something.
In this chance
Meeting of the minds
As a vision of you run around in my mind's spare time.
Speaking in riddles and rhymes.
Me and these dreamy eyes of mine.
Sir, SIR, your latte is ready!
SNAPPED back to reality
Day tripping with these dreamy eyes of mine.
Same time tomorrow morning.
We'll do this again....
I'll walk out the door and
Come right back in.
Me and these dreamy eyes of mine....
Just a LIL' SOMETHING that popped into my HEAD when I heard the 'Moods & Moments' Jam on the radio... D'Angelo's 'Me and those dreamin eyes (Of Mine)'.
SMOOTH....Now MELT into the night....

Another 'TOP' listing of PEOPLE, PLACES & THINGS of 2014! While we are on the INTERNET and socila media more and more these days, what are we SEARCHING FOR!?

Jennifer Aniston comes in at #10 according to Yahoo!
Is she pregnant? Is she still engaged? Is she taking confidence lessons so she can face her ex? And what about that fishtail braid? The fan following for Hollywood’s favorite divorcee went into high gear with fervent rumors of the 45-year-old actress’s pregnancy and possible wedding dates. After many high-profile romances , fans have been antsy that her two-year engagement with “Wanderlust” co-star Justin Theroux won’t end with a walk down the aisle. In a year when high-profile couples like George Clooney and human-rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin and, of course, her ex Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie pulled off covert ceremonies, Aniston has remained mum even to pals like Ellen, who couldn’t help but try to pry a wedding date from her.
CHECK OUT the rest of the TOP 10 HERE!

Probably the most CONTROVERSIAL movies to come out in 2014 is here! 'The Interview' is here! This it the movie that has UPSET so many people!
The Interview is a 2014 American political comedy film directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg in their second directorial work, following This Is the End. The screenplay by Dan Sterling is from a story by Rogen, Goldberg and Sterling. The film stars Rogen and James Franco as journalists instructed to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (played by Randall Park) after booking an interview with him. It received mixed reviews from critics.
In June 2014, the North Korean government threatened "merciless" action against the United States if the film's distributor, Columbia Pictures, went ahead with the release. Columbia delayed the release from October 10 to December 25, and reportedly edited the film to make it more acceptable to North Korea. In November, the computer systems of parent company Sony Pictures Entertainment were hacked by the "Guardians of Peace", a group the FBI believes has ties to North Korea. After leaking several other then-upcoming Sony films and other sensitive internal information, the group demanded that Sony pull The Interview, which it referred to as "the movie of terrorism". On December 16, 2014, the Guardians of Peace threatened terrorist attacks against cinemas that played The Interview.
On December 17, after a number of major North American cinema chains canceled screenings in the interest of safety, Sony canceled the theatrical release of The Interview, drawing criticism from the media, Hollywood figures and U.S. President Barack Obama. They later reconsodered and released the film in limited theaters and online on Christmas day. Want to see what all the fuss was about, we have the FULL MOVIE!

This MOVIE is TIMELESS--well KINDA. Remember the movie 'Bad Santa'? It starred Bill Bob Thornton, Tony Cox--the black MIDGET that plays in EVER movie calling for a MIDGET' and the legendary Bernie Mac!
In this dark comedy, the crotchety Willie T. Stokes (Billy Bob Thornton) and his partner (Tony Cox) reunite once a year for a holiday con. Posing as a mall Santa and his elf, they rip off shopping outlets on Christmas Eve. This year, however, Willie is falling apart. He's depressed and alcoholic, and his erratic behavior draws the suspicion of mall security (Bernie Mac). But when befriending a small boy brings out his kinder side, Willie begins to wonder if there is still some hope for him.
Well let's take a LOOK back at one of the more 'COLORFUL' scenes in the movie in honor of Christmas and THROWBACK THURSDAY!
It seems that Raz B from the ONCE POPULAR Boy Band B2K wants his fans to UNWRAP a CHRISTMAS GIFT EARLY. Last night, Raz released a SEX TAPE! Yes, you read CORRECTLY.. a sex tape. We have a little CLIP from the TAPE. The lady co-star is TITILLATING enough, but It appears that Raz B just wasn't that INTO IT, if you ask us.
Take a LOOK after the JUMP!

Hitman Stevie J has not only been trying to put out the HITS, but apparently taken HITS too.. Hits of COCAINE!
The 'Love & Hip Hop Atlanta' star recently FAILED not 1 not 5 but 10 drug tests for cocaine and marijuana! Being DRUG FREE is one stipulation for him to roam the streets on BAIL for an ongoing child support case, so he has been ORDERED to an INPATIENT drug rehab program STAT!
GET THE DETAILS here!
Nicki Minaj has had a HUGE 2014 and this is sure to OVERFLOW into 2015 as well. Photos have SURFACED with Nicki Minaj GRACING the January edition of ROLLING STONE magazine!
Not too much else has LEAKED about the spread but from the cover we can see that Nicki is a 'MAD GENIUS and MANIC DIVA' from what the HEADLINE says... Take a LOOK at the PHOTO and when MORE info comes down the PIPELINE, you know we will let you know...
This ISSUE seems to be OVERFLOWING with POSSIBILITY...much like that TANK.
Remember about a MILLION years ago there was a WAR on WAX between rappers LL Cool J and Canibus? CRICKETS... Yes, a lot of the NEW READERS probably are unfamiliar with the beef, but Canibus took some shots at LL about his 'G.O.A.T.' self-proclamation and also about the legendary microphone tattoo that LL has and from there the two SPARRED on wax back and forth for years. It's clear to see who came out of that DOGFIGHT on top. LL COOL J still has a lucrative rap career, a TV show, a few best-selling books and a standing engagement at the Grammys. While on the other hand, Canibus stocks shelves at Pathmark grocery store in Starret City, Brooklyn. LOL. JUST KIDDING. I have no KNOWLEDGE of what Canibus has been doing in the 15 years since their beef started, but he has not made NO major waves in the RAP GAME.
FAST FORWARD to recently, LL was performing on a bill with RUN DMC at 'Christmas in Brooklyn' event at the Barclays Center when he BROUGHT out a special guest to PERFORM with him--Canibus! The two HUGGED IT OUT onstage and performed, '4,3,2,1'!! WATCH IT HERE!
Well, If you can't make any money MANAGING the POWERHOUSE TRIO, why not HOCK OFF THEIR STUFF!? Mathew Knowles,FORMER manager of Destiny's Child and Beyonce is having a SALE of SORTS...a YARD SALE where he is selling off Destiny's Child memorabilia and mementos. You can get some DC3 posters, and tour books, Beyonce photos and the like. He is also selling Solange cd's for $1.96!!! DAMN!!
There is also OFFICE FURNITURE for sale too. SO get on down to Houston, right outside of his OFFICE and get some of these LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS DEALS!!!
ALL SALES FINAL
I would imagine.....
The SOUNDTRACK for '50 Shades of Grey' is shaping up QUITE NICELY. Beyonce can be HEARD on the TRAILER with a SLOWED down, SEXED UP version of 'Crazy In Love', and now The Weeknd adds a sultry jam to the MIX. Check out 'Earned It'.....
It's time to WAKE UP!! And what better way to get the day started then with some GOOD MUSIC! How about some Scrambled Eggs and HAM?
