   Hi There once again my friends,

               Its me Eric once again with another great Journal/Poem for all of you to enjoy and this time it will be more fun and entertaining than the last few ones where we have already lost so many legends so far this year and loved ones and family members as well. Well at last Spring's on the way and already the snow and ice have melted away in my neck of woods and boy I can't wait for the warm weather to come back again as next month will be April and the Easter and cherry Blossom seasons will begin. Well this past weekend me and my family went to see the new live action movie Version of Disney's Cinderella and I must say that its a pretty good movie that so gorgerious and beautiful to look at. I thought that it might be as Dark,majestic and even a little scary like all the recent Fairy tale movies, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, Snow White and the Huntsman, Oz, the great and powerful and Maleficent. Instead the movie's  bright, colorful and light hearted staying true to the orginal 1950 Animated Feature in which it was a timeless classic. 
The young, beautiful and talented star of Downtown Abbey Lily James comes off well as The lovely, charming Smart witted Cinderella who her real name is Ella to her parents who each pasted away during the movie but Young Ella made a promise to them both that she will still be the beautiful girl both inside and out that has kindness and compassion for everyone, Rich and poor, young and strong and the nice and mean as well. Speaking of mean of course we saw the Evil stepmother and her two spoiled brat daughters in the picture and I must say that unlike the Cartoon all of them are hot and beautiful.Bonnie and Clyde's Holliday Granger as the Pink cladded Anastasta and fellow Downtown Abbey Actress Sophie Mcshera as the Yellow coded Drisella were both funny and hilarious as the two stepsisters that kept poor Ella down and even giving her the Legendary name Cinderella having her do all the work around the house and tell you the truth if they were so self centered and spoiled I don't mind going on a date with the both of them. The actress who really stole the show in this as the ageless wonder actress Cate Blanchett who was so deliciously Wicked as the very beautiful and Cruel Lady Tremaine and I just love her fiery red hair of hers and beautiful dresses as well. She's just blew away her orginal animated counterpart that looks like a cartoon version of Bea Arthur(sorry R.I.P maude, we still love you, ha-ha!) and of Course they tried keep poor Ella from going to the ball even ripping up her pink dress in which she made by herself updating one of her late mother's ones. 
       We all know what happens next, just as poor Cindy was all about given up a mysterious old lady approached her begging her for food and water and when she did fed her she was in for a big surprise i that the old homeless lady was really her fairy Godmother played By my girl Helena Bonham Carter( love me some HBC!) even though at the beginning she look like Tracey Ullman as the old woman. FG restorted to her natural beauty and magic begin to do her thing of course although she didn't say Biddily-bobbily-boo in this movie( pumpkin into Carriage, Ella's mice friends into horses,
Goose and lizards into Stagecoachmen) and of course giving Ella a new beautiful blue dress with the iconic glass slippers as well before telling her that the magic with run out when the clock strikes midnight. When Ella finally arrived at the ball everyone was speechless by her striking appearence including the Prince played by Richard Madden who she met earlier in the movie by the woods. The two dancing divinely and Charmed by each other but as Fate would have it Midnight was about to strike and Ella had to hurry home before the magic disappear but of Course she left one of her glass slipper so the prince and his loyal men could find her and I'm so glad that his right hand man was indeed Black the captain of the royal troops! The rest of the story Tremaine finds Ella's other Glass slipper and having her being locked in her room upstairs praying no one will find her but Ella's little friends came though once again unlocking the door when the prince and his men came into the house in hearing her sing and after Ella and the Prince were reunited at last by Her fitting back into her glass slipper and live happy ever after. Well this one ranks along with the 1997 Tv movie with Brandy as Cinderella and the Late Great Whitney Houston as the fairy Godmother, the 1998 much darker and gritter Movie Ever After with Drew Barrymore as the role of Cinderellla and Anjectica Houston as the wicked stepmom by the way love the way Drew carried the prince on her back in this one and the 2004 flick Ella Enchanted starring a young Anne Hathway who also started in Disney's Princess Diaries movies as of the best ones but the classic Cartoon one will always be number one in my heart. Go and see this movie you'll have a blast and even got the short and sweet animated feature Frozen Fever at the begining  as well as we see the further adventures of Queen Elsa and friends Kristoff and Olaf trying to give her beloved sister Anna a party for her Birthday but turns into a three ring circus with Elsa's cold its a must see too voices of Idina Menzel as Elsa and Kristen Bell as Anna .
      Now into sports well the Idles of March are here and down the strench we come with NBA Basketball and NHL Hockey winding down their seasons and into their Playoff stretch,Baseball Season is Around the Corner and starts next month, The Biggest event of Sports Entertainment Wrestlemania in which now 30 years strong kicks off in two weeks but the biggest of them all starts this week of course i'm talking March madness AKA The NCAA tournament in which 68 teams begin their journeys to claim the National Championship as the best in College Basketball, Where Grown up in their Office begin printing out their own brackets and playing hooky from their jobs both on Thursday and friday afternoon placing their bets hopes and dreams on the favorite teams and College Alma matters so they can have bragging rights on their collegues for one year. Yes its the time that we hear the famillar song "One shining Moment'' thru the CBS broadcast when the champion is crowned. Good luck to all of you and your teams and I will be pulling hard for my team Georgetown to suceed as well speaking of which I came to their last home game of the season and I saw the coolest thing ever when one of the seniors Tyler Adams who had his promising College career cut short because of a heart allment during his freshman season but finally was back in uniform again for one last time even if was for a short time as he scored the first basket of the game then finally taken out to a Standing ovation by the crowd. The young man overcome a lot and here's hoping that he has a brighter future ahead of him. Well thank you all once again for the warm comments, Llama Badges and a few More DEV Watchers as well. that's always mean a lot to me and before I go here's another great poem for you to enjoy describing the big Sport events thru my eyes and God's presence as well. be back next month with a Religious themed poem for Easter for you until now Enjoy this.

                                               HEART OF A CHAMPION

By the eyes of God that dwells in every single person
Lies the sound beats from a heart of an champion

I'm like the batter stepping up to the plate in the bottom of the ninth with the tying man on
With the 3-2 count on me I took my mighty swing at bat crushing the baseball out of the park to have me and teammates celebrate at home plate after hitting the game winning home run

I'm the running back breaking out of the huddle with being fourth down and goal from inside the one yard line to punch it in
Me getting to carry the football and following my blockers and breaking off tactles to score the go ahead touchdown
for my team and my coach getting douched with Gatorade for the win

I'm like the all star guard with the basketball in my hands as the game block final seconds winding down to be over
With my team trailling I calmly took the final shot them swiss! The ball fell thru the net and after the climax my themselves carried me off the court because i'm the big hero of the game with the last second basket at the buzzer

I'm like a famous soccer player who is beloved in my home country having my shifty and slick moves are so special
Then getting of my kick right pass the defender that went in an the crowd went wild as the announcer screamed GOOOOAAAL!

I'm like the hockey player who's a marvel on skates, knowing how to work my stick
Scoring my third goal of the night,even more importantly the winner for the hat trick

I'm like the track runner that had that great burst of speed to achieve Olympic glory
Being the first one to cross the finish line a fitting end to a winning story

I'm the swimmer that dives in the pool and swam my way to getting my gold
Doing every back, breast and butterfly stroke with each lap at my best let the truth be told

I'm the Gymnast the be twisting, turning in the air Using all of my poise skill and athletic grace
All the years that I put in working on my aerobics paid off bringing applause and a smile to every face

I'm the prized fighter in the biggest match of my career after round by round, blow by blow before
finally knocking down my opponent passing my biggest test.
With the referee raising my gloved hands in my victory of becoming the Heavyweight champion of the world, having the title belt around my waist i've arrived on this night Knowing that I am the greatest

Or i'm even the powerful wrestler that has so much size, strength, guile and confidence that nobody could ever defeat me
When I step into the ring I feel that opponent is already defeated before I hit him with the body slam getting the pin for the 1-2-3!

You see life is a whole like sports it has it own shares of the thrill of Victory and the agony of defeat
Like often brings is challenges and adversity but if we stick together, working it out as a team all the Problems that we have can be beat

Don't Judge yourself on a ballgame by living and dying on that sword
As long as we're on God's team, we are all winners and our Coach is Jesus our Savior and Lord

So this game ball of a poem goes to people with great iron will and detemination
In the words of one Rudy Tomjanovich 'Don't ever Underestimate the heart of a champion!

Dedicate TO the memories of 1990's NBA Stars Anthony Mason 1966-2015, and Jerome Kersey 1962-2015, MLB Legend Minnie Minoso 1922-2015 the first Black latino baseball Player In the majors and best selling author Sir Terry Prachett 1948-2015 known for his legendary Discworld series!

see ya next time, True believers!

 Hi There once again true believers,

               its me Eric again with my annual Journal/poem for you to enjoy. Well February's gone and the March Maddess has begin where the month starts off Like a Lion but ends out like a lamb before I move on to March let's give out a couple of more Tributes to two great legends of their own right including one last look on Black history month 2015!
First Earl Lloyd, who came a long way growing up in my neck of the woods in the D.C. Area of Alexandra, Virginia to become the first Black basketball player to play in the NBA in 1950 With the Washington Capitols( yes their was basketball in the national's capital long before the Wizards/Bullets) and also he and teammate Jim Tucker were the very first black playes in the league to win a NBA Title in 1955 when the Syracuse Nationals defeated the Fort wayne Pistons, Died this past friday at the age of 86! He was like the Jackie Robinson of the NBA but what Mr.Lloyd said that were an injustice to both him and Jackie as his situation was even worse  than Robinson's because the Bigotry and hate that he had endure during his glorious nine year career in the NBA. he along with Nat'' SweetWater" Clifton, Chuck Cooper and Hank DeZonie were true Pioneers to the sport and even was elected to the Basketball Hall of fame in 2003. he was also added into the Virginia Sports Hall of fame back in 1993 of his great college career at West Virginia State where he was a two time All american. Mr. Lloyd leaves behind his family, friends and a legecy that will be endured for many generations to come.
           The second great legend to past away back on Friday is a man who we all know for the last 50 years as his Signature Character became one of the Coolest and beloved not only in the Sci-Fi genre but also in Pop Culture as well.
Of course I'm talking about the Great Leonard Simon Nimoy AKA Mr. Spock for he and his Show Star Trek helped Captured many fanboys and girls and grow into one of the most recognizable TV/Movie Francises in Entertainment History. We all grew up on Star Trek, heck even my own mother was an Teenager in High School when the show first came on in 1966 and she admits that she's still a Trekkie even all these years later because she and so many other black girls growing up watching the show wanted to be like Lt.Uhura the first mainstream black female character on Tv but like others had a crush on Captain Kirk as well. Nimoy's Character Spock was the epihamy of Suave Coolness and calcutlated Wisdom as well.he never really show any emotions but we all often get emotional for him. His classic Quotes made us think and help educated us to the fullest. heck I admit that I cried at the end of Star Trek 2 the Wrath of Khan when he died trying to saved the Enterprise from destruction and when Kirk said at his funeral of all the souls that He ever encounted he was the most human that really teared me up but I was so happy that he indeed came back in part 3 the Search for Spock in fact he directed the following two Star Trek Movies 3 and part 4 the Voyage Home in which I saw with my family as well and I think that they were the best flims in the movie francise. Mr. Nimoy was not only a great actor before Star trek he also was the Narriator of the Show In search the Director of other flims including three men and a baby and even was the voice of Galvatron in The Transformers Movie in 1986 and as Sentenial Prime in 2009 Transformers Dark side of the moon! Mr. Nimoy died at the age of 83 but his life long legecy of Mr. Spock will forever live on thru the hearts of many Trekkies and lovers of Sci-Fi all over the world. Live long and prosper into the final frontier of heaven and you will always and forever be our friend!
             Now to more fun and uplifting things that happended recently since the last Journal first the long awaited Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special a few weeks back. Its was a good not great show but it had its share of awesome moments as well. To Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon's Singing/Rapping opening the show to Steve Martin's saying like it a High school reunion with mostly White kids before being joined in by the likes of Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin, Chris Rock, Melissa McCarthy, Miley Cyrus and the two musical legends named Paul,Mccartney and Simon. To Bradley Cooper and the ageless wonder Betty White making out in the steamy skit the californians in which included Kristen Kiig, Bill Hader, Kerry Washington and Taylor Shift to the Weekend Update with Tina Fey,Amy Poehler and the Orignal Hostess Jane Curtin which included Emma Stone's own Version of Roseanne Roseannadanna and Melissa McCarney's Version of Matt Foley crashed into the news table after that. To the much hyped trumphed returned of the biggest Star
Of SNL,Eddie Murphy in which it was indeed a Debby Downer of an appearence(No Pun Intended) come on Eddie show us something, You were Gumby Damn it! as well as Buckwheat, Mr Robinson and James Brown before you became famous with 48 hours and Beverly Hills Cop 30 years ago we deserved better than a phoned in appeareance.  To Mike meyers and Dana Carvey bringing back Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World and they were great like they never left even telling Kanye West to sit down in that this ain't no awards show! To Martin Short and Maya Rudolph's great impersonation of Beyonce introducing the musical skits of SNl including Joe Piscabo's Frank Sinatra, Steve Martin's King Tut, Bill Murray singing Jaws to Dan Akroyd and Jim Blushi in place of brother John doing the Blues Brothers.
To finally the heartbreak tribute to all the Cast and Crew members that passed away over the years including John Belushi, Glida Radner, Chris Farley,Phil Hartman and Jon lovitz Sorry just kidding about the last one(ha-ha!) its was great seeing all the cast members who were a part of the show's History and show's creator Lorne Micheals but one cast member that wasn't there that I wanted to see is Mary Gross I loved her Version of Alfalfa of the Little Rascals, Weekend Update and her movies Feds and Club Paradise as well. she's a talented lady indeed but a fun show noneless.
and of course the Oscars last week was indeed fun with Neil Patrick Harris as the host and he was indeed did a great job. as usual the oscars will filled with very beautiful gowned women and Sharp dress men as well. Congrats to all the winners who gave great speeches after that including Patricia Arquette for best supporting Actress in which she spoke out about equality for both men and women and Jullaine Moore for best actress in which i'm a fan of her movies too.
       Birdman won best picture but the most heartwarming and touching moment of the night was no doubt the deserved Oscar winners John Legend and Common with their song Glory from the movie Selma and it brought down the house and even a few tears with that as well. Well thanks you all once again for the support and even the warm comments to my Journals recently and I continue to do the great job. DEV Art has become home for me. Talk to you next time and here's a fun poem for you all to read. its that time of year when the Girl scouts and boy scouts as well are in full force helping their communties and neighbors and here's it is

                                           GIRL SCOUT COOKIES

Seems like this time of year out comes my main weakness
is seeing the Girl scouts selling their cookies in their sweetness

They got all kinds of cookies that will have your mouth water
Including my favorites Kind the samoans that nobody does it better

Of course the girl scouts do more things than just sell cookies
There's a group that serves a proud tradition no matter if they're seasoned veteran or begining rookies

Their ongoing motto is "Be Prepared'' and their slogan''Do a Good turn daily''
Let me tell you about the orgin of their proud history

The girl scouts were created in 1912 over a hundred years ago
In which it was founded by a woman after a trip to Georgia named Juliette Gordon Low

She created the Organization to empower young girls everywhere
To Help teach them the ways of life and show people that they truly care

The values they learn are honesty,fairness, courage, compassion and character
Joining in activities that builds their sisterhood together

They're many famous celebrities that were girl scouts before in doing their duty
Being one helped better their lives in serving their own communtity

So let's all salute the young ladies everywhere who still continuing the tradition with a heart of Gold
Help yourself to buy a box a girl scout cookies whenever they're sold

Talk to you next time True believers!

'A life is like a garden, perfect moments can be has but not preserved except in memory LLAP!
Leonard SIMON nimoy 1931-2015 
  Hi there once again my friends,

                 Its me Eric again with another Journal/Poem for you to enjoy and I hope that all of you enjoyed your Valentine's day well this weekend even though it was pretty cold right here in the east coast of the USA some even had to deal with the snow and freezing temperatures but as long as we were indoors keeping warm with each other its all right. some more romantic than others(ha-ha) thanks to all of you fine female artists in DA for the warm responses to all the Valentines that I send to you and I even got a few Valentines back as well,. Well its been a wild month let alone year so far, Last week's Grammys saw Beck and British Newcomer Sam Smith dominated the show winning their share of grammies but they weren't the only winners on the night, Emimem, Kendrick Lamar, Pharell Williams, The legendary Tony Bennett along with Lady Gaga, The Late great comediane Joan Rivers, Country music legend Glen Campbell, Beyonce and Jay-Z, Toni Braxton and Babyface, Carrie Underwood, Christina Aguilera with a Great big world, Jazz great Dianne Reeves, Ziggy Marley son of Reggae Legend Bob Marley, Roseanne Cash, Miranda Lambert, Tenaicious D, Jack white and even my main man Weird Al Yankovic won grammies also and the show did have its share of moments from Prince's awkard stare to beatles Legend sir Paul Mccarthey debut his new record featuring Rihanna and Kanye west to Madonna still trying to prove that she is still sexy even at almost sixty to once again Kanye making a fool of himself interrupting somebody after the artist won an award he done it once interrupting Taylor swift on the MTV awards a few years back saying that Beyonce should won it to now doing the same damn thing to Beck with once again saying that Bey and hova should won the award. Come on Yeezus cut it out you're too good of an talented artist to keep doing those stupid things let somebody else get their moment in the sun and you and your bootylicious wife don't need to get too much attention all the time, your proud parents now for God's sake do it for the sake of your children. anyway a fun show.
           We also lost several other Great legendary men this month, First Charlie Sifford who grew up in the prejudice and racism in the south to rise above to become the first black Golfer to play on the PGA Tour in 1961 long before Tiger Woods and was even called the Jackie Robinson of Golf by his peers died of a stroke at the age of 92 in Ohio and ws buried in his homestate of North Carolina. he was famous player with his trademark cigar in his mouth that won him his share on contests in his career and finally made into the Golf Hall of fame in 2014 even receiving a Presidental medal from Barrack Obama in the same year. He leaves behind two sons. Then we Lost longtime Trustworthy CBS newsman Bob Simon who in his nearly 50 year career Traveled all over the world covering many Crises,Wars and Unrest in 67 Countries
even was captured in Iraq during the Persan Gulf war in 1991 and written a book about his nightmarish turmoil called forty days. He became a regular on the long and still running newsmagazine show 60 minutes and stayed on as an senior foreigh correspondent up until his untimely death in a car accident in his native New York at the age of 73. Mr. Simon won more than Forty major awards including three peabody awards and  twenty seven EMMYS in his Journalism career. 
he leaves behind a wife and a Daughter and Mr. Simon has earned my respect way more than that pomperous Liar Brian Williams who should be fired from NBC making that nonsense story about him in a helicopter in Iraq instead of just a six month suspension without pay! C'mon Man!
             but last week was indeed a sad week for people who loved Basketball like me as we lost two great coaches in College basketball First we lost Dean Smith whose 879 career wins, 11 trips to the Final Four and two national champions were impressive enough but even more impressive that he also fought for Civil rights and gay rights in North Carolina being a Kansas Native and over 98 percent of his players graduated thus leaving a lifetime of love and friendships that he had with all of them Including the likes of Charlie Scott the school's first black player, Billy Cuningham, Current Coaches Larry Brown and George Karl, James Worthy, Brad Daugherty, Bob Mcaddo, Kenny Smith, Vince Carter and of Course his airness himself Michael Jordan. he even got the love and respect of his coaching rivals including John Thompson who he became good friends over the years even when smith beat thompson's Georgetown team in the 1982 NCAA Title and his main rival from the ACC and instate Mike Krzyzewski of Duke who he had great battles with over the years and when Krzyzewski passed smith on the all time wins list,Smith congrated him in a statement and Coach K remembed EL DEANO and thanked hime as well as he won his 1,000 game earlier this year. Smith was 83 when he died. Then later this week we lost another one in Jerry Tarkanian who was sort of ways the opposite of Dean Smith but his own unique style of Coaching won over the love and respect of his players as well. even thought he often feuded with the NCAA Over the years he was always willing to give kids who grew on the wrong side of the tracks and made mistakes in their lives a second chance. He won over 700 games in his legendary career in three schools Long Beach State,UNLV when he had his greatest sucess including winning the national title in 1990 and finally his alma matter Fresno Beach. his most famous players including Current UNLV coach Dave West, Armon Gilliam, Reggie Theus, Stacy Augmon and Larry"Grandmama"Johnson.. Tark the shark was indeed one of a kind who passed away at the age of 84. Rest in peace to these two hall of fame  coaches and men as well.
           Once again thank you for all your support and continue to acknowledge them everyway I can. Before I go I want to say R.i.p to my third Cousin Mrs. Mary Estelle Smith who was first cousin to my Grandmother Lucy Mae Isaac. She died on Superbowl sunday Two weeks ago at the age of 97. she was like a second mother let alone a third Grandmother to me and my little brother Sean and our love for her and her love for us kept her alive for so many years. I know that she's looking down on us really proud of seeing us grown into fine and caring men, we love U cousin lady and we will see you again someday in heaven. Here's the Epic poem for Black History that I promised last time and hope that you'll love it.

                                      NOTHING LIKE SOUL HEAVEN

Last night I dreamed an awesome dream of a place that's epic as the garden of Eden
That i was at a sold out live concert hosted by Don Cornelius and Dick Clark realizing that I was in soul heaven

After hearing a intro prayer by the Pastor Andrae Crouch and the Revered DR.James Cleveland,I had a first row seat to see all the performers up close and personal
Sitting next to my late father in seeing the legendary Stars that passed away who were so truly special

We first saw Mahalia Jackson, Marian Anderson, Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Eartha Kitt, Pearl Bailey and Lena Horne all of them eloquent ladies
Each of them bought they soUnd of R&B,Jazz and Gospel to the stage with their voices sounds so heavenly

Then we saw the mighty Temptations and the Four Tops along with the Bar-Kays and the Force MD's do their thing
with their great showmanship, class and harmonic Voices when the they sang

then after the great ones Sam Cooke, Otts Redding, Clarence Carter, Jimi Hendrix, Curtis Mayfield, ZZ Hill,Elvis Presley Jackie Wilson and Ray Charles, my daddy's heroes
Hearing those legends sing their songs while hearing the mighty rips of Jimi's guitar and Brother Ray playing his plano

Then after its was the ladies turn again with this time the singing angels of Whitney Houston, Minnie Ripperton, Tammi Terrell Phyllis Hyman Mary Wells, Florence Ballad, Donna Summer, Vesta Williams, Teena Marie and Baby Girl Aalliyah
With their breathtaking beauty and angelic sound that can blow away any mister

Then the big band came out being led by Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Billy Ecksteine and Roger Troutman
They were indeed the best sounding band in the heavenly nation

With Dizzy Gillespie, Louis "Satchimo''Armstrong, John Coltrain, Charlie''Bird'' Parker, Clarence"The Big Man" Clemons, Gil Scott-Heron, Chuck Brown, Jimmie Walker and Miles Davis each taking a turn solo
They all Know how to work the trumpet and Man all of them can blow


then after the rappers take center stage as we hear the legendary raps of Eazy-E, Tupac and Biggie
With the DJ turntables being run by Jam Master Jay and later be joined in rapping by Big Pun, Lisa ''Left-Eye' Lopes
MC Trouble, Nate Dogg, Adam"MCA'' Yancy, Scott La Rock and the Overweight Lover, Heavy D

then after the star studded Male choir came out with Marvin Gaye, Nat King Cole, Isaac Hayes, Barry White, Lou Rawls, Bob Marley, Bobby Womack, Marvin Sease and Teddy Pendergrass
They were later Joined by Gerald Levert, Donnie Hathaway, Billy Preston, Nick Ashford, Rick James, Johnnie Taylor and Luther Vandross

We even heard the duels of Marvin and Tammy and Rick and Lady Tee
Their powerful ballads of Heaven only knows and Fire and Desire

To finally the showstopping final act of the Candy Man Sammy Davis Jr, The Thriller himself Michael Jackson and of course the Godfather of soul, James Brown
Each trying to top each other with their electrying dance moves and showing the crows how to get down

Me and my daddy were having a great time until I woke up from my greatest dream from a place that i haven't yet been
of being in the greatest afterlife concert in history there's nothing like Soul heaven.

until next time America

      HI There my friends,

            Its me Eric again with another journal for you to enjoy well February's here already and along with today being Groundhog Day there's also Presidents Day and of course the lovers holiday Valentine's Day but the more important thing is that February's also Black history Month and we take the time to recognize all the accomplishments and achievements that afro american men and women made to help change the world and paved the way for us to succeed in life without Prejudice we all should Celebrate black history not just today but everyday of your life. Well we had ourselves a great super bowl last night between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks with Tom Brady and the Pats coming back for a 28-24 victory for their fourth SB win. the game had many memorable plays including a incredible catch by Seattle near the goal line that unfortunately led to the backbreaking Interception at the end of the game. The highlight for me is the Halftime show of Katy Perry and she was awesome singing some of her greatest hits and with musical friends Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliot stealing the show it was awesome. John Legend singing Old beautiful and Idina Menzel singing the National anthem were great as well as some of the Super bowl commercials.
          Thanks for your great comments on my last Journal when I paid tribute to several men and since the last time we have lost another Legend in sports in Baseball Legend and Hall of famer Ernie Banks, he was rightfully called Mr. Cub because of the sheer joy, happiness and class that brought to the sport and even won over the hearts and minds of people in the city with big shoulders, Chicago. Black, white, young and old. Mr. Banks broke into the majors in 1953 and finished with over 500 home runs and was inducted to the Hall of fame in 1977.Even though he never played on a winning team his entire career he was indeed a champion of a human being with his famous catchphrase let's play two!
Rest in peace Mr. Cub there will be no one else like you!
            thank you all once again for all the great comments, llama badges and DEV WATCHES as well and before I go here's another poem for you to enjoy its in the spirit of Valentine's Day and on my Next Journal I'll have one for Black history that will be so Epic! until then here's one for you lovers everywhere.

                                      INTERRACIAL LOVE AFFAIR

There's nothing more unique in this world than an interracial love affair
Where two people of different races come together to show that they care

His/her's skin made of snow white while yours pure dark Chocolate
Love is colorblind by all means and you're true soul mates

The two of you were drawn together by destiny and chance
That the both of you ending up in a biracial romance

Your families may be in a shock and probably don't know how to react
all that matters that you two are love and like that old saying opposites attract

The country is made by all people and its the great american melting pot
No matter what race, color or creed you I creed you is Love always hits the spot

You could be Chinese and your lover is latino
You don't need any translations to say to each other I love you

You could be Japanese and your soul mate born Jewish
it's all right to be together if that's your true wish

You could be even a European and the love of your life is a Native American
there's nothing more stronger that a bond between a man and a woman

You see love is the most powerful thing in the entire world
by the joining of hands of all colors and religions, every man, woman, boy and girl

Like Dr.Martin Luther King junior once say we should judge people not for the color of their skin but by their character
Love is indeed stronger than pride as long as you two got each other.

So having two people of different background love each other is definitely no mistake
They go well together like scoop of Vanilla ice cream and a piece of Chocolate Cake

let whatever offsprings that come out of them will live in a world without prejudice
Because we all know up above the heavenly father God and our precious Lord Jesus Christ love all of us

This is poem about real true love that goes beyond race and won't have people to stop and stare
Because no matter what they say your relationship is more than just an interracial love affair

Until next Time America
Eric Isaac
Washington DC

Rest in Peace Mary E.smith "my cousin lady"  you are finally going to see the king!


 
   Hi there once again my friends,

             Its me Eric again with another Journal for you to enjoy Hope that you all have enjoyed my last one and especially my poem tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Junior "The Table of Brotherhood". As we celebrate of the holiday of this great man who left a great mark on this world today let's take time to remember all the Good that he did and all the trials and tribulations that he endured in his lifetime. there are still some evil and injustice in this world going on even today not just here in the USA but in Europe as well. The recent Terrorist attacks in Paris,France 'Je suis Charlie magazine in many people were killed including Writers and drawers was indeed tragic and these people could have been the Stan Lee or Charles schliuz of Peanuts fame of their country but after the tragedy they still keep on making their magazine with 300,000 extra copies. My heart goes out to the families of the victims of the tragedy and may those who passed away are finally in peace up in heaven. Let the Madness finally stop because the whole world doesn't need it!
          on another note I like to give a big shoutout to two people that we lost already this year Popular ESPN Sportscaster Stuart Scott who changed the game of sportsreporting by bring his brand of Hip Hop dialect and smooth and steady tones to the business and his catchphrases like Booya became Pop Culture and a symbol to Young America, Black, white, hispanic, etc. He reminded me of the sportscasters that I grew up on here in Washington DC, Glenn Brenner and George Michael who both giants in the media long before ESPN became the Juggernaunt it is now. Stu was a fixture for over 20 years at the company before cancer took him away a few weeks ago leaving behind his friends, Collegues and family including two young daughters that he loves so much. the second one that I want to mention is Gospel Legend Andrae Crouch whose legendary music touched many generations for 50 years and won seven grammies in his hall of fame career. He was a successful Pastor, Singer, songwriter and producer and he was indeed "The father of modern day gospel music'' by his fellow christian colleagues and even got a Star on Hollywood's walk of fame as well.
Andrae died of an heart attack in LA Hospital a few weeks back leaving behind friends family and millions of fans that love him so much. Rest in peace to the both of them and I know that God loves them both because they are indeed Cooler than the other side of the pillow!
          Well Thank you once again for all the great comments, Liama Badges and Dev watches that you gave me and I truly appreciated it and promise to keep my awesomeness going in 2015. Remember to keep the spirit of MLK alive and well in your hearts on this day forth. Before I go I leave you with another poem this time it for another Legend who changed the world forever with his charisma, charm and skill by who he's celebrating his 73th birthday this weekend and he will be always be the people's champion in our hearts. you know who i'm talking about so here's the poem

                                  THE LEGEND OF MUHAMMAD ALI

This is a true story of a great legend that became one of the greatest boxers in history
He's no other that the people's Champion himself Muhammad Ali

He was born on January 17,1942 in Louisville, Kentucky by his family, Cassius Clay
ever since the day he first put on the Boxing gloves and step on the ring he always had something to say

From starting off as Impressive amateur fighter that led his path to the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome,Italy winning Olympic Gold
To his ascension to the top of the professional ranks which was capped off by his upset win over Heavyweight Champion Sonny Liston that shocked the world

He changed his name to Ali in 1964 after joining Malcolm X and the nation of Islam
But three years later had his Heavyweight Title stripped and his boxing license suspended from him after he refused to join in the war in Vietnam

He eventually comes back to boxing with a vengeance to restore his past glory
in the process of entertain you with his pre-fight rhymes and speeches that made great stories

He was involved in several of the most remembered matches in boxing history that made his legend
From his three epic bouts with his main rival the late great Smokin' Joe Frazier to finally winning back
the Heavyweight Championship in the rumble in the Jungle in 1974 against George Foreman

He was well known for his Unorthodox fighting skills and adopted techiques like the Ali shuffle and Rope a Dope style
For a man like himself so big and strong as an OX he can also move like a gazelle with grace and guile

At the time he was truly the most famous and recognizable athlete in the sportsworld because of his character and skill
you either love him or hate him he brought beauty and grace to it with his supreme confidence, sharp wit and sheer iron will

He was a fighter all the way thru and even though the sport robbed him of his physical movement as well as his speech and damaged to his brain
He still is an International figure ti sports even to this very day and his lighting of the torch of the 1996 summer olympic games in Atlanta Georgia was another powerful moment that made him an global icon

so this is the ballad of the Undisputed champion that float like an butterfly and sting like a bee
they will never be another one like him because he still is truly the Greatest, Muhammad Ali!

Until next time, Same Bat time, same bat channel!

   Hi There once again my friends,

               Its me Eric once again with another great Journal/Poem for all of you to enjoy and this time it will be more fun and entertaining than the last few ones where we have already lost so many legends so far this year and loved ones and family members as well. Well at last Spring's on the way and already the snow and ice have melted away in my neck of woods and boy I can't wait for the warm weather to come back again as next month will be April and the Easter and cherry Blossom seasons will begin. Well this past weekend me and my family went to see the new live action movie Version of Disney's Cinderella and I must say that its a pretty good movie that so gorgerious and beautiful to look at. I thought that it might be as Dark,majestic and even a little scary like all the recent Fairy tale movies, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, Snow White and the Huntsman, Oz, the great and powerful and Maleficent. Instead the movie's  bright, colorful and light hearted staying true to the orginal 1950 Animated Feature in which it was a timeless classic. 
The young, beautiful and talented star of Downtown Abbey Lily James comes off well as The lovely, charming Smart witted Cinderella who her real name is Ella to her parents who each pasted away during the movie but Young Ella made a promise to them both that she will still be the beautiful girl both inside and out that has kindness and compassion for everyone, Rich and poor, young and strong and the nice and mean as well. Speaking of mean of course we saw the Evil stepmother and her two spoiled brat daughters in the picture and I must say that unlike the Cartoon all of them are hot and beautiful.Bonnie and Clyde's Holliday Granger as the Pink cladded Anastasta and fellow Downtown Abbey Actress Sophie Mcshera as the Yellow coded Drisella were both funny and hilarious as the two stepsisters that kept poor Ella down and even giving her the Legendary name Cinderella having her do all the work around the house and tell you the truth if they were so self centered and spoiled I don't mind going on a date with the both of them. The actress who really stole the show in this as the ageless wonder actress Cate Blanchett who was so deliciously Wicked as the very beautiful and Cruel Lady Tremaine and I just love her fiery red hair of hers and beautiful dresses as well. She's just blew away her orginal animated counterpart that looks like a cartoon version of Bea Arthur(sorry R.I.P maude, we still love you, ha-ha!) and of Course they tried keep poor Ella from going to the ball even ripping up her pink dress in which she made by herself updating one of her late mother's ones. 
       We all know what happens next, just as poor Cindy was all about given up a mysterious old lady approached her begging her for food and water and when she did fed her she was in for a big surprise i that the old homeless lady was really her fairy Godmother played By my girl Helena Bonham Carter( love me some HBC!) even though at the beginning she look like Tracey Ullman as the old woman. FG restorted to her natural beauty and magic begin to do her thing of course although she didn't say Biddily-bobbily-boo in this movie( pumpkin into Carriage, Ella's mice friends into horses,
Goose and lizards into Stagecoachmen) and of course giving Ella a new beautiful blue dress with the iconic glass slippers as well before telling her that the magic with run out when the clock strikes midnight. When Ella finally arrived at the ball everyone was speechless by her striking appearence including the Prince played by Richard Madden who she met earlier in the movie by the woods. The two dancing divinely and Charmed by each other but as Fate would have it Midnight was about to strike and Ella had to hurry home before the magic disappear but of Course she left one of her glass slipper so the prince and his loyal men could find her and I'm so glad that his right hand man was indeed Black the captain of the royal troops! The rest of the story Tremaine finds Ella's other Glass slipper and having her being locked in her room upstairs praying no one will find her but Ella's little friends came though once again unlocking the door when the prince and his men came into the house in hearing her sing and after Ella and the Prince were reunited at last by Her fitting back into her glass slipper and live happy ever after. Well this one ranks along with the 1997 Tv movie with Brandy as Cinderella and the Late Great Whitney Houston as the fairy Godmother, the 1998 much darker and gritter Movie Ever After with Drew Barrymore as the role of Cinderellla and Anjectica Houston as the wicked stepmom by the way love the way Drew carried the prince on her back in this one and the 2004 flick Ella Enchanted starring a young Anne Hathway who also started in Disney's Princess Diaries movies as of the best ones but the classic Cartoon one will always be number one in my heart. Go and see this movie you'll have a blast and even got the short and sweet animated feature Frozen Fever at the begining  as well as we see the further adventures of Queen Elsa and friends Kristoff and Olaf trying to give her beloved sister Anna a party for her Birthday but turns into a three ring circus with Elsa's cold its a must see too voices of Idina Menzel as Elsa and Kristen Bell as Anna .
      Now into sports well the Idles of March are here and down the strench we come with NBA Basketball and NHL Hockey winding down their seasons and into their Playoff stretch,Baseball Season is Around the Corner and starts next month, The Biggest event of Sports Entertainment Wrestlemania in which now 30 years strong kicks off in two weeks but the biggest of them all starts this week of course i'm talking March madness AKA The NCAA tournament in which 68 teams begin their journeys to claim the National Championship as the best in College Basketball, Where Grown up in their Office begin printing out their own brackets and playing hooky from their jobs both on Thursday and friday afternoon placing their bets hopes and dreams on the favorite teams and College Alma matters so they can have bragging rights on their collegues for one year. Yes its the time that we hear the famillar song "One shining Moment'' thru the CBS broadcast when the champion is crowned. Good luck to all of you and your teams and I will be pulling hard for my team Georgetown to suceed as well speaking of which I came to their last home game of the season and I saw the coolest thing ever when one of the seniors Tyler Adams who had his promising College career cut short because of a heart allment during his freshman season but finally was back in uniform again for one last time even if was for a short time as he scored the first basket of the game then finally taken out to a Standing ovation by the crowd. The young man overcome a lot and here's hoping that he has a brighter future ahead of him. Well thank you all once again for the warm comments, Llama Badges and a few More DEV Watchers as well. that's always mean a lot to me and before I go here's another great poem for you to enjoy describing the big Sport events thru my eyes and God's presence as well. be back next month with a Religious themed poem for Easter for you until now Enjoy this.

                                               HEART OF A CHAMPION

By the eyes of God that dwells in every single person
Lies the sound beats from a heart of an champion

I'm like the batter stepping up to the plate in the bottom of the ninth with the tying man on
With the 3-2 count on me I took my mighty swing at bat crushing the baseball out of the park to have me and teammates celebrate at home plate after hitting the game winning home run

I'm the running back breaking out of the huddle with being fourth down and goal from inside the one yard line to punch it in
Me getting to carry the football and following my blockers and breaking off tactles to score the go ahead touchdown
for my team and my coach getting douched with Gatorade for the win

I'm like the all star guard with the basketball in my hands as the game block final seconds winding down to be over
With my team trailling I calmly took the final shot them swiss! The ball fell thru the net and after the climax my themselves carried me off the court because i'm the big hero of the game with the last second basket at the buzzer

I'm like a famous soccer player who is beloved in my home country having my shifty and slick moves are so special
Then getting of my kick right pass the defender that went in an the crowd went wild as the announcer screamed GOOOOAAAL!

I'm like the hockey player who's a marvel on skates, knowing how to work my stick
Scoring my third goal of the night,even more importantly the winner for the hat trick

I'm like the track runner that had that great burst of speed to achieve Olympic glory
Being the first one to cross the finish line a fitting end to a winning story

I'm the swimmer that dives in the pool and swam my way to getting my gold
Doing every back, breast and butterfly stroke with each lap at my best let the truth be told

I'm the Gymnast the be twisting, turning in the air Using all of my poise skill and athletic grace
All the years that I put in working on my aerobics paid off bringing applause and a smile to every face

I'm the prized fighter in the biggest match of my career after round by round, blow by blow before
finally knocking down my opponent passing my biggest test.
With the referee raising my gloved hands in my victory of becoming the Heavyweight champion of the world, having the title belt around my waist i've arrived on this night Knowing that I am the greatest

Or i'm even the powerful wrestler that has so much size, strength, guile and confidence that nobody could ever defeat me
When I step into the ring I feel that opponent is already defeated before I hit him with the body slam getting the pin for the 1-2-3!

You see life is a whole like sports it has it own shares of the thrill of Victory and the agony of defeat
Like often brings is challenges and adversity but if we stick together, working it out as a team all the Problems that we have can be beat

Don't Judge yourself on a ballgame by living and dying on that sword
As long as we're on God's team, we are all winners and our Coach is Jesus our Savior and Lord

So this game ball of a poem goes to people with great iron will and detemination
In the words of one Rudy Tomjanovich 'Don't ever Underestimate the heart of a champion!

Dedicate TO the memories of 1990's NBA Stars Anthony Mason 1966-2015, and Jerome Kersey 1962-2015, MLB Legend Minnie Minoso 1922-2015 the first Black latino baseball Player In the majors and best selling author Sir Terry Prachett 1948-2015 known for his legendary Discworld series!

see ya next time, True believers!
