Blog Feature: Two Motivational Stars


Quote of the day: 
We all have ability. The difference is how we use it -Stevie Wonder

My average music playlist is always a mix of genres, but currently i tend to listen to more of alternative music and an artrise that's been featuring lately on my playlist is Janelle Monae. 




Janelle Monae -Her musical tone is afropunk /rock /soul /electronica /alternative /futuristic. 
She's got a terrific voice -crisp and easy to listen to. 

She's also a great dancer and i particularly like her style which is different and she's like the female version of Andre 3000 of Outkast. 

She's just 19yrs old and has her own record label called 'The Wondaland Arts Society'.  In late 2007, Janelle Monae signed with Diddy's label, Bad Boy Records. The song 'many moons' was recently nominated for a Grammy Award in the urban/alternative category. Janelle plans on releasing a full length album in January 2009.

You can check her out on youtube-




Milk (Based on a true story)



The first openly gay man voted into US public office is the first reason to see this potent and involving film. Saw this movie yesterday and i must say it was really great. Milk is a powerful film that will leave a lump in your throat by the time you are through with it. Fantastic performance by lead actor Sean Penn (recent Oscar winner for same performance).

Other great performances from actors include -James Franco(spiderman1,2,3), Josh Brolin(American Gangster). The movie is about gay rights and standing up for equality,as all men are born equal -but it doesn't really matter if you aren't gay -just watch the movie and be inspired! 
My Movie Rating: **** (4.5 stars)
