JILL SCOTT: LOVE AND HATE

This week is quickly flowing under the bridge. Another class finishing up, too much work to do, no time to do it, and surely no damn time to write. My wife sent me an e-mail a half hour ago, told me to take a break and find the video for Jill Scott’s new song, “Hate on Me.” I did. Thanks, honey. And all that hate reminds me of her towering moment from one of last year’s best movies, Dave Chappelle’s Block Party, during which she and the Roots tear up her lovely ballad “You Love Me.” Hate and love. Yin and yang. Groucho and Harpo. No contradictions here. Now pardon me while I go fall in love with Jill Scott. I know my wife understands.


You Love Me


Hate On Me

Hey, between Shelley Duvall and Jill Scott, this is like "Faces I Love," only with audio! All right, all right, getting back to work...

I'm commenting here because I have a question that doesn't fit any of your posts. Who is the fisherman/boy/girl in the photo on your sidebar? The one above the Abe Lincoln poster. It's a nice, relaxing picture.

I don't know who the kid is. But the picture is a sort of idyllic image for me. I'm just using it as a head-clearing tactic right now, but if I ever have to reduce activity on this blog, now or in the future, you'll probably see a bigger version of this as a post.
