"Speed Dial No.2"

by Zero 7


I don’t need you anymore
I’m okay and I am sure
I don’t need you anymore
Yeah I’m ok, I’m reassured

And I don’t need you not today
I promise I’ll call I promise I’ll say
I don’t need you not to stay
And if you ever need me I’ll reciprocate

Your shoulders in my pocket
Speed dial Nø2
See you when I need you
See you when I do
See you when I do

Do you need me, I am here
Can you ask, can you be clear
Yes you need me, I appear
Now you are me, I am here

Your shoulders in your pocket
Speed dial Nø2
Call it when you need me
See you when I do
See you when I do

Call me when you need me
Just call me when you need me

Call me when you need me
See you when I do

Call for Terrifying, Strange & Beautiful Faces!
I’m doing a 3-panel painting representing Warsan Shire’s poem “You are Terrifying, Strange & Beautiful, something not everyone knows how to love.”
AND I want to see: your #terrifyingface your #strangeface and/or your #beautifulface.
Pick a hash tag, take a photo, post it and IG tag @jnelljo. If I choose your face I’ll send you a framed print of the piece. please share &; repost. ❤

These aren’t necessarily recommendations. Consider the list more of an FYI - films and TV shows we’ve talked about on this site, at one time or another, that are now streaming on Netflix, that you might want to check out for yourselves.

Super excited that Netflix is now streaming Kerry Washington’s very first film, Our Song. As a huge Kerry fan it’s exciting to see how everything began. Make sure to watch it because I sure will. Netflix date anyone?

You don’t have to understand Korean to know that this song by South Korean singer Lee Michelle is a powerful one. 

Part African American, Lee Michelle addresses how her “otherness” was not easily accepted by her community. But despite the obstacles she has been able to triumph.

Comment below and let us know what you think!

Good morning! Hopefully Ms. Spalding can brighten your day with her lovely voice.

Remember, you are black gold!
