    With the recent passing of another legend, Kobe Bryant, it makes me appreciate greatness while I can. Chappelle is a genius and should be enjoyed always, but especially while he's still here. RIP Kobe. 8/24, Mamba.

    It’s confusing and comical to see black men discuss racism and “blackness” while married to a whole non black woman,lol. Is Interracial marriage black genocide, both economically and genetically? I guess rich black males don’t understand this strategy nor do they care. Oh, well.

    My FAVORITE Rachmaninoff song....OMG, it was astounding. I have always felt the accompaniment for this song was equally amazing, and the pianist is excellent. I am sure Renee chose that scaled back tempo...I notice in her masterclasses she often has them take the tempo down...too much rushing. It really works here. Brava!!! Who are the 9 imbeciles that hit dislike?!
