so i had an idea of having a reenactment of "Boyz in the Hood", but live action... kinda like "Bugsy Malone"... and apparently i was artistically irresponsible. here is the convo malcolm's mama and i had... hahah.. bad, auntie alfie.


me: would you let malcolm reenact a scene from "Boyz in the Hood" for a short video?

Vanessa: hell no

me: WHY NOT????

Vanessa: i saw that vid of scarface last night in class... dropping into a pool of blood... not cool!

me: IT WAS FEATHERS!

Vanessa: lol i don't want my son thinking that is appropriate behavior.. i'm trying to build a proper middle class kid

lol

fuck the bullshit

i'mma stay in the middle

its safer and happier there.

Vanessa: for everyone else.. my son is too smart and will consider that a permission

no way

no guns

me: esp if he does an ice cube video!

Vanessa: no gangs. no violence. i'm happy with a boy who may be square or nerdy. i'm aiming for a hot, sweet, square for my son. i'm talking science nerd. any reenactments of science nerds are great and permitted

me: "Apparently, Auntie Alfie makes a Bad Mommy."
Vanessa: he'll shake the world via his doctorate degree, not by brandishing a weapon.

i never said that!

boyz in the hood is real for some folks.

but it wouldn't be authentic for me or for him.

cultural authenticity.

me: " Auntie Alfie got shot down by Mommy Vanessa"

Vanessa: lol
"Cool auntie alfie got shot down by square nerdy mommy vanessa"
