Baked Macaroni and Cheese, it's What's for Dinner...> On the side, Collard Greens with Turkey Bacon, Garlic & Onion; plus a nice, fat, juicy steak for the man of the house.

In the mail, rain, sleet, snow or hail, even though it's hotta than Hell Rell (well, besides my m'fukken check!) DJ J.Period's slammin new mix, The Best of Lauryn Hill (featuring Ms. Hill her-damn-self!); not to mention the new DVD/CD package from Queensbridge hustla LITTLES, entitled Reloaded/The Queensbridge Ghettomentary. On the way...FREESTYLE: The Art of Rhyme DVD review, your BLISS review (Ms. Danyel Smith, congratulations on this new book, I salute you! You were laying the foundation for all this when I was just a lickle youth in the game freelancing for Rap Pages...THANK U.) And, since I'm trying to put everything in writing these days, I promise, soon come, the historical breakdown of the name(s) - Miranda Jane (MJ) AND Pyramids 2 Projects; giving it up to those who came before me, and after me! It goes down.

Fa'shiggadale. Had an interesting convo with a handsome young gentleman-friend of mines, J-Minix (like J-Mix with the Yay Area on it) earlier today, breaking down how a lot of New York and L.A. (and Down South) rappers have co-opted the Bay slanguistics for their own use. Watch this spot for a lesson in the origins of your favorite lenguas, and remember if it didn't come from E-40, it musta had came from DJs Lord Sear & Bobbito "Cucumber Slice" Garcia - fine purveyors of "no homo", "pause", and all that old C.M. Famalam shiznit.

And while I won't go into the deep-ass recipes for tonight's dinner, I will share with you'all the recipe for Mr. E-40's libation, GORILLA MILK. Mix some Christian Brothers brandy with some Fridays Club Mudslide Mix, with ice if you take your draank cold. Don't ask/axe me how many parts brandy to mix, I have no freakin' idea and I wasn't trying to pressure Feezy/Forty-Water, yo' Playa Potna (eva since the womb, he been a tycoon), for the precise measurements. Let's Get Drunk (and throw up in the car?) It's that fire tho, I put that on The Click.

Hmmm... In the mail today,
Freestyle. Finally. Peep Rae's Spot for some background on this one. I've seen this film in so many forms, I'm excited to crack the package, throw it up in the DVD player, and see what the final product has in store for Hip Hop.

On the phone today, DJ J.Period, Tragedy Khadafi, and the illustrious
Dipset Capo himself, Jimmy Jones. He gave me the FUEGO quote for my piece, thank God, and that'll be comin' at ya'll 1st thing next week.

Also a couple of very interesting emails came across today, and I'm sure more than that 'cause there's dozens left unopened as I take this short break to a) finalize the cooking of said greens, mac and cheese, etc. (big ups to my girl Ms. Sugal for hookin' up that steak so I didn't have to wang with it at all); b) drink me a nice big tall icey glass of half Mango nectar/half Strawberry nectar (
KERNS! What's up with some product placement?) and c) take a much-needed break from trying to edit this leviathan feature with WordPad, whatever archaic software this shit is, which does not feature little luxuries such as word count nor spellcheck. If I never liked
Bill Gates before, I like his ass today.

Huge, massive, strong, big-it-ups to Tachelle Wilkes who did a high-powered interview with me for
www.femmixx.com; keep your ears peeled for that to pop up sometime in July, I hope. Tachelle is awesome, as is her partner on the site, Gary. If you've not familiarized yourself with Femmixx.com, please do so ASAP.

U may notice a change in the blogsite, in the form of a couple of banner ads & search engines. I won't have any pop-up ads for penile enlargement, I promise... And my love don't cost a thing. But somehow I gotta pay for all this 'lectricity, the faultellulesses/cellie-cells, and the internets. And I suppose I gotta eat too...

So. She cooks, she writes, she edits, she emails, she drinks juice, she writes, she blogs, she reads, she watches, she listens, she asks the tough questions, she's interviewed, she laughs, she edits. One thing tho...she don't sleep. Like we used to say at

Stayin' strong...

Mira, ja Una

p.s. To any/all editors and/or publishers who may be/are reading Pyramids 2 Projects, I am not illiterate. Nor ignant. I can/will use proper punctuation, pronounciation, and person - within the boundaries of Hip Hop parlance - in a professional environment WHEN $$$ IS INVOLVED. This is just where I free the dome.

XO/Besitos y Abrazos

“If a wound has afflicted you, a wound like it has also afflicted the (disbelieving) people. And We bring these days to men by turns, that Allah may know those who believe and take witnesses from among you. And Allah loves not the wrongdoers, And that He may purge those who believe and deprive the disbelievers of blessings. Do you think that you will enter the Garden while Allah has not yet known those from among you who strive hard (nor) known the steadfast?” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 3, verses 139-141


Wisdom is a property with which the wise understand.

Clarification: Wisdom is a principle extended in the knower, in knowing, in knowledge and in the knowable. Wisdom's power cannot reach beyond these limits. However, when wisdom is an intense principle in each of the above terms severally considered as separate simple essences, it is the effect of some other cause. But there is another, supreme wisdom where the knower, knowledge, knowing and knowable are identical in essence and nature to wisdom; this wisdom on its own is a principle simply within its own intense terms and identical to them in essence and nature. Otherwise, it would be limited by its own terms in goodness, greatness, eternity, power and virtue, and unable to be one infinite principle with regard to finite principles; it would even partake of ignorance, which would be a privation of goodness etc. And this privation would be worse in supreme wisdom than in finite wisdom limited by the terms into which it extends.

The inherent correlatives of wisdom are: the knower, the knowable, knowing and knowledge.

Without wisdom and its likeness in natural instinct, nothing can be directed in any purposeful way.

Alot of interesting comments on this blog, I was searching for some doctor related info and some how cam across this site. I found it pretty cool, so I bookmarked. I'll really liked the second post on the front page, that got my attention.

My site is in a bit different area, but just as useful. I have a penile pills related site focusing on penile pills and mens health related topics.
