This video comes to me today all the way from the Sudan. People have commented that I just post videos here anymore and there is not much actual text. Those comments did not get approved, but they are true. Barely have time to post the videos and this one needs no explaining why I love Nathalie Makoma's voice and presence.
The original video for this post was removed from YouTube and I just found this one today, which is even better.
Dear dj Goddessa,
Congratulations, yesterday you were in the top 500 on Traffic Ad Bar at number 3!To see the top 20 click here: http://www.trafficadbar.com/website_traffic/home/ Having been a member of trafficadbar.com since December, and seeing the visitors to this blog, "In-Box Jewels” increase daily as a direct result, I hvae to share this with you, my friends. The trafficadbar home page displays the top 20 surfers daily and they receive bonus points, etc. The numbers they surf are astronomical to reach the top 20; so much so that this feat seemed humanly impossible. Who can visit upwards of 3,000 Websites in a day? Yesterday, determined to try to get to the top spot, I spent the entire day clicking, clicking and clicking some more, but the highest spot reached was No. 2. Sleep then overcame me; so, ended up number 3.
Wax Poetics presents Tawk Takeout: Tawk Tomahawk Remixed
Hiatus Kaiyote are an independent future soul group based in Melbourne. Formed in mid-2011, TAWK TOMAHAWK is their debut release. Sharing from the Wax Poetics blog:
"When Queen of Just About Everything, Ms. Erykah Badu, delivers knowledge, you open yourself to receive. Which is why when she devoted 140 characters or less to Australian band Hiatus Kaiyote—her exact words were “Okay. I’m done. In love,”—it confirmed our strong sense that these guys were exceptionally special.
In a country where balls-to-the-floor AC/DC rock boasts a much fuller history than soulfully futuristic stylings, this seven-piece from the east coast city of Melbourne is an anomaly. Hiatus Kaiyote’s uniqueness comes not only from their surroundings, but also their capacity for a sound rich in its understanding of soul, R&B, and jazz.
Lead singer/songwriter Nai Palm was raised on the sincerity of artists like Wonder and Franklin, w…
Click this link Funk Sanctum Radio to start the player window for Funk Sanctum Radio and join me today as we keep the Spirit moving. What is House Music? I will be the first to tell you that I am no house music authority, however, my definition is it's played in "my" house. Since I am limited to 20 hours of music in my account on live365.com, my stream has gravitated over the years toward primarily House Music, independent artists in the sub-genres. This is a sample of artists you will hear in Funk Sanctum Radio:
Adam X, Adeva, Adonis, Alec Empire, Alexander Hope, Alexandra Prince, Alex Gaudino, Amber, Ambrosia, Ananda Project, Anane, Annie Mac, Antoine Clamaran, Armando, Armand Van Helden, Arthur Baker, Ann Nesby, Ashley Beedle, ATFC, The Avalanches, Axwell, Anthony Pappa, Andy Ward, Baby D, Bad Boy Bill, Barbara Tucker, The Basement Boys, Beatmasters, Basement Jaxx, Dj Baz aka Bassam Ibellini, Benny Benassi, Bizarre Inc, Black Box, Blaze, The Bloody Beetr…
We interrupt the regularly scheduled programming for buffering, buffering, buffering. That is what is going on at live365.com this morning for my station and I presume all of the thousands of other stations hosted there. Okay, that has happened before, so I will just pin something on Pinterest. Uh-oh, cannot pin, cannot like, and definitely cannot repin this morning. Pinterest is broken.
What to do? I have been so detached from the outcome of all of my forays into social networking, curating, sharing and connecting on the Internet. AOL web pages taught me 10 years ago that one cannot be attached to ANYTHING on the Internet. It will be here now and after that poof. I say, if you cannot stream it or pin it, be it! That's right "BE" the love that our Creator meant us to be.
Okay, so the alternative is do my work. LOL -- That lasted a few minutes, and now am back writing to you.
"Pinterest is down, but we won't frown,
Can still look at our own boards and …

I just purchased this stock photo to help manifest some specimens in the physical and will be heading back to the Culver City Rock & Mineral Club tomorrow. After burning a few sticks of the Moldavite (essence) incense purchased today, we are hooked!Culver City Rock & Mineral Club, main page So, this is where we were coming from when the little videos were shot. Have to go back tomorrow to the Culver City Rock & Mineral Club Gen Show because it was awesome. Those in So. Cal should check it out because it is "free" and rare gems, lapidary exhibits, etc. The "jewel" of today is moldavite. Bought some "moldavite" incense there, never heard of it before today, came home and googled it and lo and behold: "Moldavite is the product of a meteor collision with Earth nearly 15 million years ago. It fell over what is now called the Moldau River valley in Czech Republic. These green Gems are among the most r…
