Pharrell Williams — Girl - Mini Review

Below is what I wrote on Instagram today. Click their logo above to view comments and the original post.
#DB1stImpression #Pharrell's New album #Girl #Review The 10 tracks on this album are exactly what you think a Pharrell album would be smooth, fun and delightful. (YES "Happy" is on the album.) As promised there is no hip hop on the album and it has a nice pop appeal to it. Even the tracks that don't stand out as singles are pretty cool. I think the album is a #winner and if you're a fan of Pharrell and his music you'll like it. I posted the standout tracks to me as I listened to them the first time on Instagram @ hashtag #DBPGirl

[VIDEO] 'Good Times' and the Importance of Fathers

This show lost so much when John Amos left. Yes it was show business crap, but the strength of the show was the INTACT #BlackFamily. This small clip shows you that as a boy all that tough talk ceases if daddy says no. Pretty much as simple as that.  
In real life I think a lot of weak male adults (can't really call them "men") who beat women and such suffer from not only a lack of a father, but ANY positive adult male role models to foster their development. Arrested development is more than a R&B group from back in the day. It's a real syndrome. That lack of development leads to all kinds of societal problems.  
I'll get off my soapbox for this soliloquy could go on for days. Another great 1975 episode of 'Good Times' that's still relevant today.
