And I hope your Christmas was Merry! I sent out some unconventional Christmas cards I bought at the Black Expo in July. I just fell in love with the artist's work. She had gorgeous waist length, free form locks too. What wasn't there to love?
Here is more of Jan Spivey Gilchrist's work:

I did a quick lock loops set and took out the rollers with some of my hair damp. I had to because I was rushing as usual. I used a blow dryer after taking the loops out and wasn't completely satisfied with my hair when I left home. But I got lots of compliments, so I guess all is well that ends well.
My mommy made my shrug/shawl. She is such a talented seamstress. She also hemmed my pants and told me to switch earrings before I left. I appreciate having such a good mommy with style and skills. Thanks mom!

Meanwhile, the company potluck is around the corner. Ewwh!

It is about blues, soul, and the evolution/cross-over of Rock-N-Roll overall. But specifically, it is about the artists at this record label who made the music.
I must say that I am not a fan of Beyonce's music most of the time. I define a fan of an artist or music as someone who would purchase the music or in some way contribute to the artist/music. No, a free CD or download doesn't count, LOL. However, I enjoyed her portrayal of Etta James and can't imagine another known entertainer portraying her. I was a little disappointed that they didn't play/sing my favorite Etta James song.
Sunday Kind of Love:
So, I particularly thought Mos Def's portrayal of Chuck Berry was awesome. I also love the exploration of the characters Howlin' Wolf and Lil' Walter. In short, go see it!
