School Daze Sequel?! YES!!

*Check out the full interview done by Black&Sexy TV above (10 minute mark)*

Now after learning that the "Fly Girl" trilogy by Omar Tyree would be turned into a movie. .
The legendary Spike Lee confirms that he already has the script for the sequel to his beloved classic "School Daze"!!





















Spike Lee said the sequel would take place 25 years later and he hopes to get actor Laurence Fishburne to play his role as “Dap.” Lee said, “I had the script for [the sequel] to School Daze, a contemporary version, same school, 25 years later. Hopefully I can get Laurence Fishburne to play Dap. He’ll be the president now of the school. It would deal with issues in HSBCUs today, some of the same stuff from the last film, like the pledging process. But also lots of new stuff like homophobia,it’s a big subject in it. Class issues, color, hair texture, but it’s stuff happening today.”

I don't know about you but a few people I would like to see on the campus of "Mission Coll…

I can admit I was a little shocked by the young women who were casted (no hatred at all) but after viewing this trailer. .they truly did each character justice!! They look almost identical to the ladies. I'm really excited to see Lil Mama bring to life the late and great Left-Eye!!

Flyy Girl

I'm sure you saw the title of the post and thought I was going to start talking about myself. .LoL!! Sorry!! Anywhoo. .over the weekend I heard some of the BEST news a book-lover could ever hear. .That one of your FAVorite characters will be coming to the big screen.

Picked up by "Codeblack Films" a subsidiary of Lionsgate they will bring to life one of the most known urban book characters "Tracy Ellison" of Omar Tyree's book trilogy that all started with "Flyy Girl".

I have been reading Omar Tyree's books since I was 17 and he is honestly one of my FAVorite authors.

A little on Mr. Tyree. .















(Woo. .Isn't he Handsome!!)


A child of the 70's Tyree was born and raised in Philadelphia (he let it be known that he is a "100% Philadelphian) with a strong stepfather who was a role model and a disciplinary that gave him the freedom to explore and put him in line anytime he strayed. Tyree became a fan of classic films, including kung-fu movi…

Dirty Laundry

Kelly Rowland just released the most anticipated video for and next single "Dirty Laundry" off her  latest album "Talk A Good Game". 
Of course when everyone first heard the track there was a lot of talk about "Why discuss her issues now?" or "What was the purpose of the song?". My opinion is that being an artist is a form of "artistry" and through this form of art they can release and talk about certain experiences freely through their music. I feel that with this album overall Kelly has truly introduced us to the REAL Kelly and now more of her fans can relate to her more than ever. I'm not going to throw any shade to Beyonce' but Kelly has always been a favorite of mine (even with the old DC I liked everyone of the girls except Beyonce'. I'm just not a fan. Sorry SophistiKats!!) and I am glad to see her step truly out of the shadows and show everyone what she is working with. Kelly is BaDD and I can't wait to see…

Oh. .San FrancisCO!!

SophistiKat "JAM" Q.U.E.E.N.

So Janelle Monae continues to blaze a trail of her own. With her unique flair and confidence she is changing the game and making you listen up. .one hot track at a time!!

With this song she speaks to all the Q.U.E.E.N.S. by getting one of the hottest artist of our time Erykah Badu!! And we ALL LOVE us some Miss Badu honey!! (I need to find out what she is doing to keep her body BANGIN'!!  I want to be that BaDD)

This song is thought provoking and speaks to many conversations being had by sistahs in the community right now on how we have treated and continue to treat each other.

I am more than excited to use this song as a platform for an upcoming event and will definitely keep all my SophistiKats posted when the details are finalized.

Also be on the lookout for her upcoming album "Electric Lady" in stores and on iTunes Sept. 10!!
September is going to be a FABulous month!!

Until then ROCK ON OUT!!

SophisitKat "Dessert of the Month"

Keeping with the fresh, healthy, and light way of eating for this summer heat I provide you with a yummy old school dessert but with a tad twist. Blueberries are beneficial and a healthy boost to any dessert or dish. Blueberries are a Cancer Blocker (the nthocyanins which give them their blue hue attack cancer-causing free radicals and can even block the growth of tumor cells), Bladder Aid (contain compounds that prevent bacteria from adhering to bladder walls, which helps ward off urinary-tract infections (UTI’s)), and a Skin Reviver (use in an exfoliating scrub).

Now see how dessert can be GOOD for you ;") MmmHmm

Brandy. .A role model for many female FANS

I have LOVED Brandy since I was a young girl. It always amazed me to see a beautiful BROWN girl doing her own thing. .not only in the music industry but television and movies too. I remember first catching her on the 90's sitcom "Thea" (featuring one of my childhood actor crushes Jason Weaver!! Yes LAWD). Her self titled album Brandy was then released and from there, she went nowhere but UP!! I followed here career from then til now and can say she is truly someone for my generation and others to look to for inspiration.

Check this out. .Featuring quotes from Moi. .

The Power of the Coconut

For the past year I have been making products at home (Yes in my own Kitchen) and testing them out to see what I like and how I can truly benefit from them in my day to day life. I also suffer from eczema so a lot of products on the market for hair, body care, and fragrances I cannot use.  One all natural product ( that we find in most African American products) I have not run into any problems with is raw, organic Coconut Oil.  I am not the only one that creates and uses homemade products. A lot of my Sisterfriends do the same, however this is a common and consistent product being used amongst most that I chatted with.


















Here are a few of my FAVories. .

1. Massage Oil~ Coconut oil soothes tired and sore muscles. Add a few drops of essential oils (virgin olive oil, rosemary oil, or lavender oil) for a more relaxing a sensuous scent.

2. Stretch Marks~ (Every woman just about has one or two. .if not more of these Tiger Stripes somewhere) For prevention and softening marks from pregnancy, …
