Owl’s Asylum Is Still Alive…

I’ve read about the rumors. The Asylum was pulled off of Twitter. Well, the actual language used was that I was “kicked off” of Twitter. Actually, not too bad of a rumor if I was going for that sort of attention, a digital martyr of the popular social media network. If I had a more Read the full article…

God, Spirituality, #NShit…

The more I write and interact with you all here in the Asylum, the more I realize the purpose of good interactive design. As a writer, you are allowed to put certain working concepts that you are still building to the side, with blogging you have to present your present thinking in real time on Read the full article…

Let’s Talk About Sex…Well, Couples Anyway…

Conversations have to be the life blood of a blogger’s inspiration. I want to revisit the discussion I had on Twitter yesterday regarding relationships. Romantic relationships to be exact. As a disclaimer, and I truly feel that writings like this should have a caveat: I’m not a relationship guru, I don’t claim to be one, Read the full article…

Slate Wants To Know Some Of That Black’s Magic On Twitter…

I’ve been on twtr today attempting to be as politically correct as possible. You know, refraining from telling people,” Hey, shut the fuck up, you don’t know what the hell you are talking about.” And for the most part, I’ve been doing pretty good. The problem I face is that some people feel the need Read the full article…

We Write The Web…

A few thoughts tonight.   Had a great conversation early about the need for bloggers to be sincere with their content. It wasn’t another one of those “keep it real” type of discussions, more so about writing what you feel without limitation. I was reminded of a post I read earlier this week that touched Read the full article…

Ain’t I Black?

I don’t know. I have really grown in so many different directions over the past few years.(Looking at my stomach, seems like in more ways than one. Better start hitting that gym, again.) But jokes aside, I’ve noticed a certain slant in my thinking these days that I’ve called others “sell out” and “elitist” for Read the full article…

Aiyana Jones, Unforgotten

As the world slowly becomes aware of the tragedy that occured when a quasi-military style apporach used by Detriot special units to capture a suspect of murder ended up in a murder, we here at the Asylum would like to reflect on Aiyana. Today mourners viewed the young angel’s body. Statements have been made regarding Read the full article…

Hashtag Aiyana

This is for Aiyana. We all put together our thoughts in a very quick manner in order to explain in our way our pain for this travesty. Much of what you read will not be edited. We feel that the raw energy needed to deal with this situation deserves our naked souls.. @Cheymarlymom I have Read the full article…

Close Encounters of the White Mind

I was involved in a pretty interesting conversation today on twitter(I know, I know…). It came to be through a disagreement of sorts between one of the above. Ultimately, the basics of the conversation surrounded the gender of god(not going to touch that here, sorry) and it became a discussion on the various means in Read the full article…

On Black Men, Bitches, And Pussy

Alright.   I’m on twitter and this sister drops a comment about men and lying. She has this image of her legs with a sponge over her, well, you see it. So, every now and then I like seeing it in my timeline(My apologies…still working on the pornograpy problem.) I responded to her by typing,” Read the full article…
