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
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
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.
me: " Auntie Alfie got shot down by Mommy Vanessa"
"Cool auntie alfie got shot down by square nerdy mommy vanessa"
