Friday Pause...

I have to interrupt my "Good Hair Week" to show you lovely blog readers this video.

I will warn you that it's 10 minutes long but it is worth every moment.

Here you will see a drunk man in a local gas station store picking up beer.

*I know we've all been a bit tipsy but this is extreme. I just wish there was one song played throughout the whole video but none the less it's hilarious.

I just love the fact that this guy is such a go-getter. He will not stop until he pays for his beer.

It's called "Blame it on the Alcohol"



*Thnx Ctes for the link

Different Styles...

Throughout the last 5-8 years I've had so many different hair styles.
Once I started college I guess I had some kind of hair revelation. I no longer wanted just perm (straightening) my hair. Plus I had a few mishaps at certain hair salons in Brooklyn. One woman at a Dominican salon said she would just trim my edges and she ended up cutting my hair very short. I remember crying and being so upset (this also happened at an African American salon). So now I am very weary of people cutting my hair.

But I had to deal with it and I decided that I would experiment with my hair. So I dyed my hair, curled it, had full weaves put in, got pony tails, corn rows, braids, I even had a sort of Mohawk thing at one point. I did a lot.

Here are a few pics I dug up with all the different hair styles I've had.





























What are your thoughts? Which one did you like? I love them all. But my favorite hair style has to be the curly braided style. My hair has become sort of a hobby. I'm even considering going "natural",,,, but that would be a big deal for me because I would no longer be able to perm my hair. But we'll see.

Have you ever had a bad hair experience? Anyone ever cut your hair the wrong way? Let me know. Share your hair story.

Good Hair Word Search Puzzle

In my continued celebration of "Good Hair" the movie.
I came up with a word search puzzle. I've always loved word searches.

This one is called: Things you should know about Black Lady Hair.



I had a really good time putting this puzzle together. Searching for all of the celebrity hair styles, the hair greases, products, wigs, everything!

Here are 26 terms that describe popular hair styles and products/instruments used mostly for and on black hair.

I've had most of these hairstyles or know relatives who've had these styles or used a flat iron or this particular hair grease.

This puzzle will be fun for everyone!

Print it out. See if you can find all 26 words.

I'll post up the answer later this week, with a list of what the terms mean and what some of the products are used for.

Big thanks to Artist Chris Cortes for helping me with the graphics on the puzzle.

Tameeka Time celebrates "Good Hair"



In celebration of Good Hair's release - all of my blog posts this week will be related to hair.

I'm really surprised that Chris Rock's documentary has so many bloggers, vloggers, daytime, late night shows, and people in general discussing hair.

I have not seen the movie yet but I'm really looking forward to it.

On my end, "good hair" always meant straight, long, luxurious hair. Growing up I used to hang out with a lot of latin females and I loved their long hair that went down their backs.

But as I've grown I've learned that it's not JUST about having long straight hair.

It's about looking good, feeling good, feeling comfortable with the look YOU have. For the past few years I've really gotten into braiding and weaving my hair. So now I can have long straight hair if I want to.

I remember back in school that weaves were a curse. And people would always talk about the girls who had the weaves.

But weaves, extensions, or braids are a personal choice. I love it because I can sort of re-invent myself with a long straight weave, or show my fierce side with curly wavy braids.

It's one of the reasons why I love being a woman. The fact that I can change my hair style, change the way I dress, enhance my "swagger" so often.

It's all personal and I know there are people out there that think, "oh her hair is not real so she must not be real either" - what about people who've had rhinoplasties, tummy tucks, breast and calf augmentations, liposuction, face and neck lifts, eyelid surgery, or even cheek implants.

There are people who are having medical procedures performed to enhance their looks. Weaves and extensions can be taken out, nothings permanent.

So if you know someone who has a weave or extensions, embrace their hair don't frown upon it.

Just think of some one's hair as an accessory.

Here's some pics of my current style, wet & wavy braided extensions.






And if you have not seen the trailer check it out:

Pony tail dreams...

Happy Sleepy Monday All!

I call this one "Pony tail Dreams" ... this is my first photo from a bus.
This was taken on a Jamaica Center bound bus.
Poor girl couldn't take it anymore. I got off before her. I hope she didn't miss her stop.

Still horsin' around

So I've been slowly catching up on blogs and reacquainting myself with Google Reader and actually blogging again,,,

I happened to come across this photo on one of my favorite sites: Jezebel ... http://jezebel.com


Yikes!

Are people still messin' around with horses? Did we not learn to leave these horses alone from Tameeka Time's Trailer Friday Article on Zoo or the story of Rodell Verneen the repeat horse humper that was busted for having sex with a horse, while on probation for having sex with the same horse. Come on! People do not promote horse sexin! I know t-shirts are cool but this is not! Try yiffing or something! Leave the horses alone!

Happy Sleepy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Here's a great pic I took on a Manhattan bound F Train.

LOL! He looks very comfy with his inflatable pillow.. sometimes I wish I had one for the train ride into work.

Trailer Fridays - October 2nd, 2009

The other day I watched "The Machine Girl" on Netflix.


I really enjoyed this Japanese Action movie. It was not meant to be a comedy but I fount myself laughing over and over at the ridiculous props that were used to kill people.


Here are my 3 Favorite Scenes from the movie.


The Tempura Arm - This really made me giggle. You should watch the movie just to see how Ami's arm gets fried.






Pin Head - This scene where a guy gets nails hammered into his head is quiet funny also. (One would imagine it to be gruesome but not at all).



Chainsaw chop - This scene wasn't as funny as it was silly. Asami is lethal with her chainsaw hand.

I recommend this movie if you like Japanese action or girls in uniforms kicking ass. It's fun to watch and you'll be sure to chuckle. It has been compared to Planet Terror but in my opinion it's a lil more fun and less sexy.

I read somewhere that there's a sequel to The Machine Girl called Shyness Machine Girl - I can't wait to check that one out!


In the mean time check out the trailer for The Machine Girl

Photo(s) of The Day - 10.01.09



When I saw this all I could think was:
"No body puts baby in the corner."

*I was walking near west 29th street when I saw this manikin head in the corner of some one's store.

I wonder if it was left there on purpose? I'm used to seeing candles in front of stores for good luck and good fortune but never manikin heads.

Here's an even stranger manikin in the window of a Sleepy's store near the Empire State Building... why is this manikin naked covering itself with pillows?


Aren't manikins anatomical models of the human body used for teaching.

What happened there?

And as I write this blog post ,,, about manikins I start to remember of one of my favorite childhood toys the Barbie Styling Head.


I loved that toy,,, I always styled my barbie's head all kinds of ways. But looking at it now,, it is pretty strange for a pre-teen to be playing with just a dolls head.
