Especially if you are a little soft like me because it’s important for your masculinity! It’s important to your family. It’s part of being a strong black man. Rick knew how to talk to girls, All of the guys in the songs knew how to talk to girls. I was still trying. I would give it my best shot. I 59 would put on my favorite purple paisley polyester print pullover and I would put on my favorite song and POSE!!!

I wanted to be like the high-class people like on Dynasty. You never saw Blake and Crystal Carrington doing the “tootsie roll” to a nasty Millie Jackson song. I was such a nerd growing up in the inner sanctums of West Philadelphia in the late 70s early 80s.

JAY: Siferdean was the cousin that you rarely heard of…because he was “funny”. I asked my mom one day how do you spell SIFERDEAN! She quickly snapped – EDIE: IT CAN’T BE SPELLED! ) 47 I’d pick up the Violin in sharp defiance and practise my Beethoven as fast as my tiny hands could.
