Online Dating: The Follow Up

Sometime has passed since I last wrote the post titled Online Dating: Part I and I wanted to do a follow up to keep my readers in the loop.  Well, things are not going as expected, but I will take the blame for it.  A couple weeks after that entry was posted I created a profile on and I started to get a variety of matches batched together and e-mailed to me daily.  So far I have found online dating to be a lot more tedious than I expected. 

When I would go on the site and log in I would feel the pang of dread sweep over me as I attempted to sift through the multitude of profiles.  It has crossed my mind that perhaps online dating is not for me and I prefer the more conventional way of finding a mate such as when I'm out and about or through a friend of a friend.  For the sake of my readers and always wanting to keep my word I will continue on this trek to online dating.

Stay tuned.

Thanks for reading!

A Quick Chat With Raekwon

On Tuesday, March 31st I attended the album release party for Raekwon, a legendary emcee and member of the rap group Wu-Tang Clan.  The event was held at a downtown D.C. bar and lounge named  Bar 7.  Raekwon whose real name is Corey Woods titled his new album Fly International Luxurious Art (F.I.L.A.).  
Days leading up to the event I contemplated what I would ask him and moments before his arrival I finally formulated the question in my mind.  Raekwon entered the quaint and cozy establishment located across the street from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and I bravely approached him and asked: How is your rap persona Raekwon different from your real life persona Corey Woods when it comes to love and relationships?
