I was going in a completely different direction with this week’s post— until I came across one tragic, inexplicable, inexcusable bbm this morning. It read:
“Do I Know Who Jodeci Is?”
The train stopped. Courtney Love stopped drugs. The earth stopped. My heart stopped.
The Bbm, sent last night by one of my goodest closest friends, Dawnie,
I know Dawnie had good intentions. She only wanted me to jog her memory.

Yup. Had me a Costco sheet cake for my graduation party. Damn straight I wolfed down the whole thing. Summer-o-’96. Definitely the good ol’ days. Jodeci’s Feenin -I distinctly remember- was playing on BET during my party. At least I think that’s the channel this
was on. Was that appropriate for an about-to-be 6th grader to watch?
Eh. Who cares. The damage is done.
It also reminds me that I can’t find my damn Jodeci DVD with this video on it. That coupled with one of their CD’s I’m missing prompted me to issue a Facebook threat yesterday.
Their music & style will forever have them etched in time as Boyz II Men’s evil twins the Bady Boys of R&B.
One time for Mr. Dalvin Devate Swing, the musical genius behind the group.
This is a hell of a response to a bbm, ain’t it?
