This past weekend, I was nominated for The Smiley Thumb Award which was created by David from the Chape blog. I received this nomination from T. Wayne of A Joyful Process Blog. If you are a regular reader of “My Jams” then you are already pretty familiar with T. Wayne. I like to call him my twin–short for Wonder Twins. Do you remember them? Anyway, I like to say that we are Wonder Twins because we’ve had some pretty amazing music related ‘coincidences.’
At any rate, most of you already know that I blog about music and various other topics. Well, T. Wayne’s blog has a sharper focus in that he exclusively blogs about music and music related topics. When it comes to music, he is very well versed about many different genres!
T is from Maryland so I’ve been trying to get him to blog a bit more about go-go! Yes I did call you out brah!
Anyway, if you are a fan of ‘The Purple One,’ you really need to check out this T. Wayne classic. I am telling you, my twin ripped it! He articulated all of the things that most of us were thinking but couldn’t find the words to express. You DID that T!
Frankly, due to our love of music, T. Wayne and I have become great blogging friends. Thanks so much my twin for the nomination!
All blogging awards have rules and they are as follows:
- Include the photo of the Smiley Thumb award. (Did that!)
- Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog. (Did that too!)
- Tell us what makes you smile.
- Nominate as many bloggers as you like.
- Include these rules in your post.
Here we go!
What makes me smile:
My friends and family; especially my babies! Oh yeah, and my brother Tack kills me! He is one hilarious dude. He’s the kind of person that makes you go into ‘ugly crying laughter!’ He’s been very busy lately but he promised to make an appearance on the blog in coming months. You guys are gonna love him!
Making musical connections with others. I love it when someone says, “Hey do you remember such and such song?” Oh I live for that! Trust me, I have made some crazy cool connections with fellow bloggers over a good jam!
Young kids! I love the innocence and sweetness of children. Having said that, I like them for a little while then I want somebody to take their little asses on home. No, I’m just teasing; but not really 😉
Cryptic memories! You might recall me telling you that my cousin Ron coined that term to identify memories that are so old that only snippets of them remain. I usually start all of the “My Jams” posts with a cryptic memory.
People who boldly stand in their identity! Right now I am thinking about how my late friend David used to spin, dance and kick to the song “And the beat goes on” by The Whispers! Uh huh, he didn’t give a tinker’s damn what you thought about him! Yass baby you better work it Ms. David!
Being around people of all ethnicities, cultures, nationalities, sexual orientations, educational and socioeconomic backgrounds who are having a freaking good time!
It’s like this, if you wanna be down with me, I can certainly be down with you!
My nominees for this award are chosen below. Now in the words of that great mastermind T. Wayne, they may or may not accept, but here they are anyway:
Thanks again Twin!
