Welcome to this week's Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. This past week I had an interview with a renowned producer and songwriter, Rob Wells. Of course I always try to provide nuggets of information that is beneficial to independent artists. In this interview Mr. Wells share his personal formula for writing a song. This is relevant because many indie artists write their own lyrics.

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give exquisite cranial repertoire. I have already touched on the subject of split sheets, but I have noticed something. Many independent artists trying to break into the industry are not understanding or never heard of split sheets. I did this interview for the show with Rothstein Beatz @IamRothsteinBeatz and I would like for you to hear what he has to say about split sheets.

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. This week I am going to touch on branding yourself as an artist. I always artists a question, what are you known for? This question is to see which direction branding should go for endorsements, merchandising, target marketing etc.
If you have any business sense as an artist, then you know that branding is important to you as an artist. You have to think about the places you perform, the audience, what makes you connect with them, what physical item that you can make tangible as an artist. Yes, thumb drives with your music, or selling t shirts is a start, but it has to go beyond that.
One good example 50 cent. He started with an album that was jumping. Then a movie to correlate with the album. Then, on to the shoe line, endorsement from Vitamin Water. Another that comes to mind is E40. He started a rapper and family record label owner. Oh, did he get Sic Wid It. His stage name only made sense to start a liquor line. There are many more, but I will leave it here.
The bottom line is that you as an artist are a brand. How can you make your brand tangible? I interviewed a Platinum Billboard Charting Producer, Morgan Matthews. In his interview his advice was to get around other professionals making money in your field. Artists, get around people who can help build your brand. Your brand is what’s going to make you money. Sidenote: If your structure is not in order…

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. Today I am going to briefly touch on being an asset or liability as an artist. According to Oxnard Languages (2021) an asset is a useful or valuable thing, person, or quality. The definition of liability, according to the same source, is a person or thing whose presence or behavior is likely to cause embarrassment or put one at a disadvantage.
Every artist adds value in some type of way, even if in the form of music therapy, but does the value outweigh your liability as an artist? Are you an artist who lacks and lags, don’t follow through to completion, have warrants, risky lifestyle, negative public outburst, could you be booked for a show six months away and not be in jail…who invest in an artist with more liabilities than assets? No one… Know that more than good music makes another collaborate, invest, or be a resource if the risk outweighs the benefit. Artists assess your assets against your liability….okay.

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek exquisite cranial repertoire. This week I want to skim a little bit on the topic of when it is time to upgrade beyond free. Anyone in business knows that many businesses do not return a profit within the first three years. So, for instance you are started a new venture….and you collected a fee. What would be done with the fee? In business, it would go back into the business. All of it. No buying new shit, no going out to eat…back into the business. The fee should have been determined by a portion of the operational costs to begin with.
I have seen and heard some idiotic things that had me asking again are you shittin me or kiddin me. Things like collecting fees, but no budget for email blasts, promotion, or marketing materials….relying on free versions and labor, where they do that at? I have seen new ventures started with no recordings…how do you start a venture that rely on recordings without an option to record? That damn free version again. I don’t know about anyone else, but if I see only free versions used in your business and you’re not willing to upgrade yourself….then I am Casper. No need for anymore conversation…if you won’t pay yourself then you won’t want to pay me. Nothing from nothing leaves nothing…what goes in must come out….input vs. output…for every action there is an equal but opposite reaction…and tricks are for goats. You only use the free version….what the hell grows from free?

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. This week I have just been musing about different reports in the news, blogs, and YouTube streets. The literal words that have came out my mouth over and over again was, “what the fuck?”
I consider myself an empathetic person with a sprinkle of analytic reasoning so for me, it gets to a point that ignorance no longer an excuse… I have seen politicians say things like they would be more scared of a group of peaceful mixed-race protestors than actual protestors with weapons and intent, without the right to harm. Ask a Black Man that question. I have heard a partial audio of man parent speaking to a man child in a manner so disrespectful that it couldn’t have been anybody else. I have heard women scream and beg to be protected longer than this past week. I have seen two doctors argue on television about wearing masks…testosterone at its best. I didn’t watch the Grammy’s but the YouTube streets were lit up...parents have rights to…don’t they? These are just my musings for the week.

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. This week I want to vaguely touch on demon time or witch’s hour. Reasoning is because the ignorance or non-ignorance to acts during this specified time. Demon time is when the separation between the malevolent spiritual world and natural world is at its closest. Demon time is considered between 12-4 am, with 3am considered to be the devil’s hour. Two things happen during this time, you are either asleep or you are up. What activities are being in participated during this time?
There is protection through demon time with angel numbers. 12:12. 1:11. 3:33. 4:44. According to thoughtcatalog.medium.com, the vibration of the energy is in the numbers. 12:12 highest goals and support, twin flame, love. 1:11 creation, leadership, courage, manifestation. 3:33 signals something very important manifesting in life. 4:44 protection from angels and encouragement. Sex, drugs, alcohol, threesomes, rituals, orgies, things hidden from the light of day…acts during demon time. Acts that affect your 12:12 desecrating love and marriage. Demon time destroys your 1:11, destroyed creations, loss of leadership, embedded fear…either self-inflicted or inflicted upon others. Demon time acts devour your 3:33, loss of manifestations, compromising self for the come up. Demon time acts removes your 4:44, your protection, your encouragement from people, people standing with you. Time is indefinite progress of irreversible existence and events. Demons are offspring of the devil that participate in malevolent acts.
In the entertainment industry there are many temptations that will lure you in to the malevolent spiritual world. The thing is….the acts that are attached to demon time affects your life in the light. What’s done in the dark comes to the light, the good …the bad….and the ugly. Be careful of what is done on that demon time…and that’s the real fuckery.

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. This week for Black History Month we will pay tribute to the beautiful soul angel, Mc Trouble. She was one of the Princesses’ of Motown, a Billboard Charting Artist, could battle with the boys, intelligent in her craft, and respectful to others but powerful.
Mc Trouble, in my opinion, represented an independent Black Queen. Although she was taken far too soon, her flow is still embedded in the bedrock of the structure of Hip Hop. Still today her lyrics and flow can compete with any of the legendary emcee’s. At the age of 20 she understood the world beyond the 3-D. “…they say…I’m overstepping the boundaries over points I wanna touch…the world’s in debt, so trouble is set…to wake up my brothers and sisters who have slept…America was built from the sweat of a Black Man…(Genious.com).”
Mc Trouble’s lyrics are still relevant today. When truth is spoken, it stands the test of time. Character of a person lives long after natural death. The world has got to get a grip. Black History Month, a beautiful emcee soul angel, Mc Trouble.

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. This week in Black History we will honor the regulating gangsta singing, like none other, Mr. Nate Dogg. Nate Dogg was genius, he could sing about regular everyday occurrences, and make it relatable to the average homie…Hey…OG could you tell me how to find some good weed…It ain’t no fun if the homies can’t have none…say my name, cause ain’t nobody tighter than me….They can come closer than close, yeah, original they never will be…. Nate Dogg said that his music explains who he is (Dogg, 2012).
I observed a few of Nate’s interviews and gathered several things about him. I observed that it was genuinely in him to show love to thy neighbor. I observed that he had an aura of a traditional alpha male. I also observed that he was funny and liked to crack jokes when he wanted to joke and when he didn’t, he didn’t. In one interview Nate said that he was never trying to portray being anyone but himself (Dogg, 2012), that he sang about what he felt, and he had love for Hip Hop in general (…the rhythm is the bass and the bass is the treble). Dj Quik described Nate Dogg as never seeing him excited (Nostalgic, 2020). Nate Dogg said that he put his emotion, any way that he is feeling into a song. He said that he makes songs about how he feels to keep him from doing stupid stuff (Dogg, 2012).
Nate Dogg has a signature baritone sing gangsta rap that no other can recreate. He is listed as an artist on Vh1’s list of greatest songs of all times (Nostalgic, 2020). He is the third part of the Snoop Dogg and Warren G’s 213 out of the LBC. Nate Dogg had love and we have love for him. Black History Month.

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. This week for Black History Month we will pay homage to Mr. Old Robotic, Futuristic, George Jetson, Hip Hop Historic Collaboration Crazy Joint….Craig Mack.
Flava In Ya Ear was definitely a robotic, futuristic, George Jetson, crazy joint. I gathered several traits about Craig Mack from watching some of his old interviews. He seemed to be a very honorable man, truthful, extremely loyal, and stayed true to himself and style. Rappers from Long Island have a history of flowing with their own unique style…no one of them brought the same type of flava. Craig Mack’s flava was bidder badder chitter-chatter…I guess I’m gonna say Craig Mack with perfect timing.
Craig Mack was the first birth of Bad Boy Entertainment. Craig Mack’s, Flava In Ya Ear grabbed Clive Davis’s attention and secured distribution for Bad Boy Entertainment. The remix for Flava In Ya Ear till this day is the absolute shit and is still robotic and futuristic. Flava In Ya Ear introduced Biggie, introduced Busta as a solo artist, gave us more butts than ashtrays….I guess I’m gonna say Craig Mack with perfect timing. Much love and respect, may he rest in peace…..Craig Mack, Black History.

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. For the first week in Black History we will pay homage to the legendary Sweet James Jones….Tony Snow…polo fuck that hilfiger…that trill n^gga, Ghetto Star…other half of The Underground Kingz….Mr. Pimp C.
I watched several interviews of Pimp C and gathered several attributes about him. He always gave praises to the most high for his blessings. Pimp C had a strong belief in family values. Loyalty and respect meant a lot to him. He was a true artist beyond his own culture. Most importantly he always said what he meant…thus he was bout as trill as it gets.
According to Wikipedia, Pimp C started synthesizing beats using a drum machine and keyboard one Christmas. According to Pimp C he got a drum machine and keyboard because he was tired of n^ggas trying to fuck him and Bun over on beats….and decided to do it himself (Malroy, 2016)….bout as trill as it gets. And he did it…polo fuck that hilfiger.
Pimp C’s success has reached the top of the Billboard Charts and many more many times over. He has told us about Swishas and Dosha, how to Get Throwed, and set the standard for the International Players Anthem. One thing that Pimp C talked about in an interview is that yes, when he was younger he glorified some wrong things….but as legends get older, they have a responsibility to the younger ones coming up in the game to educate on the consequences of that life (Mindd, 2018).
A salute in Black History Month to the pimped out, pimpalated pimpalation, Trill Entertainment, half of Underground Kingz, Chad the man, Mr. Pimp C…a man who was as bout as trill as it gets.

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. This week I am going to speak with you about the purpose of video ad campaigns and promotion. You know how you are watching your favorite YouTube content creator and an ad pops up? That ad should be your video that is popping up….and yes music artists too. Now let’s not jump the gun…okay. The business end still has to be taken care of….you know copyrights, virtual encode, PRO registration, distribution, video distribution, etc…Lay your foundation first.
Google Video Ad Campaigns run on 187 platforms, including YouTube. It costs as little as $50 per month and you can set length and time directly from your YouTube Channel. LinkedIn has video ad campaigns starting at $100…and of course Tik Tok, Facebook, and Instagram. There are more… Recently I ran across an app called Ripl, where you can post videos to all of social media platforms simultaneously.
Let’s say an indie artist has a single that he/she wants to release….after the business groundwork has been laid, what will aid in the way to making dollars? Promotion….promotion includes video ad campaigns, interviews with vloggers, bloggers, contents creators, music reviews and making a media presence. This is also some of the press that you will include in your EPK. So let’s just say you have a promo budget of $200 for the first month and $75 per month for the next five months, that is a six month promotional budget of $575. How would you put together a promo strategy and budget? I can tell you a promo budget of $50 on a Google Ad Campaign will get you around 8000-10000 views. The work has to be good in order for the subscriptions to grow…and once you reach the subscriber threshold to monetize….then call on Scottie to beam you up. I think I have given enough jeweled nuggets for now.

Under the Drunk Tree, The Evil Demon Body Eating Spirit Sits with You: There Are Spiritual Consequences
Welcome to this weeks Blond Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. This week we are going to touch on the spiritual consequences of when we allow the wine and spirits to take over. Young people in the music industry need to understand what they allow when they get f^cked up.
The word alcohol is derived from the Arabic word “Al Kuhl” and English word ghoul, which translates to evil demon body eating spirit. Alcohol is liquid which represents free flowing of spirits (Sharma, 2018). When someone goes dark after getting drunk, the body allows itself to be possessed by other entities. It allows acts of violence, risky sexual encounters, rape, going on a rampage, drinking and driving and more……wine and spirits.
According to Smith (2019) if a person self observes the differences in before and after drinking, they have noticed uncommon behavior, changes in voice, sexual sexscapes, etc… Now imagine how an alcoholic live life on the dark side and allow the spirits to possess the body more often. There are five subtypes of alcoholics. The subtypes are the Young Adult, Functional, Intermediate Familial, Young Anti-Social, and the Chronic Severe (Smith, 2019).
I am going to touch on two subtypes. The Young Adult Alcoholic makes up 31.5% of alcoholics. They start drinking around 19 and are dependent around age 24. They are more likely to binge drink. Things like pouring alcohol down another’s throat to get faded fast. I mention this group because this is the age that young fresh talent enters the music and entertainment business. The next subtype is the Chronic Severe Alcoholic. This group normally has a close family member/members that are alcoholics. They begin drinking around age 15 and dependency by age 29. This group is more likely to experience major depression and other anxiety orders. The Chronic Severe Alcoholic has the highest rate of divorce and separation, but also the highest rate of seeking inpatient treatment.
Imagine depression, drinking, and sex…do you think love is being made….or the spirits taking over??? We all know the physical consequences to alcoholism but we must be aware of the spiritual consequences. Think about when you sit under the drunk tree that the evil body eating spirit sits with you….

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire….Again, that means I talk about real shit. The feature for this week is on Underground Rap World. Words that have been used to describe Underground Rap World are humble, helpful, and supportive. These are not words normally used when describing Hip Hop, which means the man behind the brand is extraordinary. Justin Larison founded Underground Rap World in 2013 with the slogan, “All Underground All the Time”. Wikipedia describes underground hip hop as hip hop that is characterized by being socially conscious, positive, or anti-commercial lyrics. Anybody whose slogan, “All Hip Hop All the Time” is saying that it is okay to be conscious, bring positivity to the lyrics, tell the truth and talk about how it really is….and the platform is provided through Underground Rap World. This is a classic example of servant leadership.
Justin shared his vision of Underground Rap World at the time of conception. He shared that his vision was to help struggling artist through various forms of promotion. I read some of the reviews and discovered that I was right….someone extraordinary was behind Underground Rap World for people to voice so many positive things.
Underground Rap World Videos gets hundreds of thousands of views. A few of the latest artist promoted on the URW platform are Tone Tana Music, C-Lance, One Mic, Demrick, and Sonny Sale ft. Solid Savage. Thank you for your service Mr. Justin Larison and Underground Rap World. Follow Underground Rap World @UndergroundRapWorld on Facebook.

Welcome to this week's Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. After the George Floyd murder, I wrote an article titled, Rope Burns Won't Heal With Your Knee on My Neck: The Uncomfortable Truth (https://www.blonde-intelligence.com/ms-roni/rope-burns-wont-heal-with-your-knee-on-my-neck-the-uncomfortable-truth). In that article I talked about white privilege and gave examples. Examples such as education and benefit of the doubt, but this real life insurrection is the latest, most wide open example of white privilege. The reported experiences from lawmakers during the insurrection is what people of color experience over and over again...in Covid-19 treatment, in court, in police treatment, in life.
I remember the Sandy Hook Massacre...the police took the killer and got him a cheeseburger meal because he was considered a young boy at the age of 18,, but Tamir Rice was 12. On my Blonde Intelligence Podcast and Video Show, I did a show on Black People and Their First Encounters and Experiences with the Police. In that show the average age of first encounter with the police was 16, one was told that they were going to kill him if a car had not been in the way for a clear shot...he was 14 at the time.
All on the news outlets, internet, and social media people have been voicing the stark contrast of the double standards in how groups of people are being treated compared to how people of color are treated in similar circumstances. In the first Rope Burns Won't Heal Article, I mentioned the movie, "A Time to Kill"....Again, close your eyes, go ahead and close them (metaphorically)...Now imagine....a group of lawmakers in a live session....and all of a sudden you have to get down because you hear glass shattering, wood splintering, a large crowd of angry chanting men and women trying to break in....imagine it....imagine....imagine that this angry group was black.....what would be the difference in the outcome? That is white privilege...

Yo It's 2021!!!!! Welcome to the first Blonde Intelligence of the new year with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. (Side note: That is a classy way of saying that I talk about real shit that will help you....ummm hmmm...and a lot of real shit happened in this past year that should have you thinking about how not to get caught with your pants down (figuratively). Let's move on....
Unless you are a nun....everybody wants to climax right...(in life). According to Oxford Languages, climax is the most exciting, intense, and culminating experience, its the feeling of being at the top of the tier. Keep in mind that this highest point can be positive or negative. In order to reach a true climax you have to work on your shadow side.
Let's just say that you are an artist, (artists this part means that I am about to say some real shit to you and you are about to experience some Blonde Intelligence exquisite cranial repertoire)....and you want to be a successful artist (provided the talent is there). But your shadow side is that you don't like to listen, you do not like to take directives, you ignore business advice, your attitude is bad, your music is violent, no desire to understand business, shady business practices, unrealistic expectations, inflated ego, etc.
What work would this artist need to do on his/her shadow side to reach a positive climax? If the artist does not work on the shadow side what negative climax could you envision? What if the artist's shadow side shows in his/her public persona? In that case no professional will want to work with you and you fucked yourself...that's not a fulfilling climax...If you put the work in then 2021 should see you envisioning yourself to climax, and that's some real shit.

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. This week is the last of the three-part series on the tarot. We have discussed the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana. Our subject today is the tarot spread. Have a slice of warm apple pie… According to Psychiclibrary.com, a tarot card spread is a method by which the tarot card reader lays out the cards physically and interprets its meaning. Remember we went over meanings in parts one and two.
There are many spreads but for beginners’ purposes we will only mention the three card and the five card spreads. Here is another slice of warm apple pie… A simple three card spread can answer general questions in many areas of life. A three-card spread can answer present, past, and future; what I think, what I feel, what I do; current circumstances, barriers, and advice, and so many more. So let’s say you want to know what to do about a lover….a three card spread could answer; what they are possibly feeling, what are they thinking, and what action will be taken. The placements of the cards, if they are major or minor arcana, and if they are in the reverse of upright guides the interpretation. More apple pie? ….yes.
A five-card spread can give more in depth answers to your questions. Five card spreads can answer questions or provide insight in love, relationships, career, money, and travel. The cards in placements of 1-5 can answer preconceived ideas, present situations, the unexpected, the near future, and the distant future. So, let’s just say in the near future position of a five cared career reading is the Chariot in the upright. What would that mean? What would it mean in the reverse? What if the Ace of Pentacles was in the near future position upright? Here…take another piece of this warm apple pie with you for later. Was the bitten apple better in this warm apple pie?

Welcome to this week's Blonde Intelligence with me Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. This week we will continue with our three-part series on the tarot and focus on the minor arcana. The minor arcana or suit cards represent things or influences that are going on in your life. It's like…you are in your freshman year of college…the friends you make, what you give importance to, and/or you increase your study time all influence what your grade will be at the end of the semester. Whether positive or negative, the influence has an impact on the final outcome. How could Cups, Pentacles, Swords, or Wands influence the outcome? You wonder what are those…they are the minor arcana. The cards are represented by numbers with each having court cards that represent the action or energy of you yourself or the energy surrounding you. The court cards are Pages, Knights, Kings, and Queens…..of course there is always an Ace in each suit.
Cups is a feminine energy with the element water. Cups are emotion, creativity, intuition, and lots of cleansing love. The cups cards are usually Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio energy. Cups energy is heart over head energy.
Pentacles is money, finances, career, and possessions. It is a feminine energy represented by the element Earth. The signs of this energy are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Pentacles have the energy of manifestation.
Swords are communication, decision, action, thoughts, words, anger, judgement, verbal/mental abuse, knowledge, and power. The energy is masculine and the element is air. The signs that normally represent this energy in a reading is Aquarius, Libra, and Gemini.
Wands are creative and new magical ideas. Wands are energetic, full of willpower, spiritually conscious, warm, and charismatic. Wands have purpose and high motivation to take action. The element is fire and the energy is masculine. The signs that normally represent this energy are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.
Keep in mind that we all have all signs in our chart and some signs may be stronger than others. Most people look at their sun sign, but you are your moon sign too. If you don’t know your moon sign you can check out Cafeastrology.com. I hope that I have piqued your curiosity enough for you to find out what each number in the suit represents. Next week will be the last of the series and I will explain a simple spread. In any kind of spread the placement of the major and minor arcana tells the story. When you are able to read the story from the placement then you will have eaten the whole apple. Let’s see who finishes the apple next week.

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. This week will be the first of a small three part series on the tarot, starting with the Major Arcana. I know some of you are thinking again….What in the hellllzzznnnniiieee???? But haven’t you already bitten off the apple?
According to Oxford Languages (2020), Arcana refers to secrets or mysteries or to the 22 trump cards. I am only going to do a brief discussion on four of the 22 major arcana cards. I hoped that your curiosity is piqued enough to continue to learn more. The Major Arcana holds significant mysteries to significant events that directly affect your life, whether in the reverse or the upright. The four cards are: The Fool, The Magician, Strength, and the Wheel of Fortune. Of these four cards, three is ruled by planets and one represented by the zodiac.
The Fool Card is ruled by the element air and the planet Uranus (I will let you check out Uranus on your own because sometimes he can be a mutha….). The fool in the upright is a good card that represents innocence, believing in self for new beginnings, creativity, and taking a chance on you. In the reverse is a total and reckless idiot. In my interpretation of the Fool card the person looks at ease around uncertainty, almost naive to the dangers around him. The positive part is that the sun is shining on him and the rays are reaching long.
The Magician is one that makes shit happen. The card is an air element, ruled by the planet Mercury. They are the ones that finesse and flip shit. They have all the resources and skills to shape the destiny that they want. In my interpretation on the Magician card there are fruit and flowers all around the man/woman, signaling the ability to make magic happen. There is an infinity sign above his head and a large cup that he is commanding with his wands. Meaning that the magician has endless ways of filling that large cup.
Next is Strength, which is represented by Leo. The strength card is having courage in discussions, courage to stand up for you, self-assured, honest, loyal, and reliable in actions. On the strength card the lady also has an infinity symbol above her head and appears to be kind, gentle, and strong, being able to tame the lion. There is wisdom there in the upright.
The last card for this week is the Wheel of Fortune. We have all seen the game show where people spin the wheel and depending on how hard they spin and where the wheel stops if they win or lose. In life how hard you spend the wheel is your actions…remember that bitch Karma? The Wheel of Fortune is a fire element ruled by Jupiter, which is the planet of luck and expansion. The Wheel of Fortune in the upright is destiny and good luck. My interpretation of the Wheel of Fortune card seems to be all the elements surrounding the wheel while it is turning. Each representation of the elements, all have books open as if they have been taking notes on past actions. Sitting at the top of the wheel is the Egyptian Sphinx, which is the Greek spiritual guardian. The Sphinx represents the higher power that determines if you go bankrupt or gets to buy vowels to help you along. This was just a sip, I hope it was good. I hope you come back next week for part II, the Minor Arcana.

Blonde Intelligence Tarot Series with Me Ms. Roni: An Introduction to the Other Side
Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. For the month of December, I am featuring a three-part series on the tarot. Tarot cards can be used to tell a story, provide clues, or give warnings about situations in your life. The series will provide insight into the major arcana cards, minor arcana cards, and simple spreads. The tarot spread lists are love, career, daily, spiritual, full moon spread, new moon spread, and celestial spreads. Of course, with me the career spread is always my choice.
People intertwine horoscopes with tarot, but they are distinctly different. In the cards you can embody any energy. For instance, I am a Leo Sun, Leo Rising, Gemini Moon, and Cancer Venus. Although Earth is not in this part of my chart, if I am in a period where I am working very hard, my energy can embody earth energy (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn). We all have every sign in our chart.
A spread can be as little as one card with yes or no questions, three card spreads (past, present, future), Celtic Cross Spread, or more elaborate. It’s not the cards themselves, but their placements that have meaning. Some readers are intuitive and can read without relying solely on the cards. Some that are my favorites are SenStar555, Spiritual Sag, Deborah Clare Clear Channeled Message, and Southern Mystic Tarot.
There are major arcana cards and minor arcana cards. Major arcana cards represent life changing events that have long term effects. Whether or not they come in the upright or reverse determine positive or negative events (Karma). The minor arcana cards are more of the influential energy (wands, cups, swords, and pentacles). They are your actions, thoughts, and feelings that will influence the major arcana in your read (Karma).
Next week I will explain the 22 major arcana cards and their meanings. The 22 cards that represent elevation or downfall. This should be very interesting. As always Like, Share, Subscribe, and Even Disagree with Ms. Roni’s Blonde Intelligence.

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. I hope everyone that celebrated Thanksgiving had a lovely as could possibly be holiday. This week I want to speak about lying, liars, and manipulation. I recently did an interview with a music industry professional and he spoke of being taken advantage of early in his career. This led me to speak about the signs of manipulation and lying to help someone, including myself, avoid being taken advantage of in this thing that we call business.
I want to start by explaining the second part of the title of the blog. I am sure you are wondering what lying, liars, and manipulation has to do with fish and beans…I will explain, just hold on. According to Farr (2020) in Ja'Net DuBois’ composition of “Moving On Up”, the theme song to the Jefferson's, the lyrics “…Fish don’t burn in the kitchen and beans don’t burn on the grill” is a comparison between her old life and her new life. That in her new life she did not have to eat inexpensive foods with not always an alluring aroma AND do all of the cooking as she did in her old life.
Lying is a person not telling the truth and a liar is the person that is doing the act of not telling the truth. We all know that…right? Manipulation is an extension of that ballgame. Lying is the primary tool manipulative people use to continue living a hidden life (Brenner, 2016). Brenner also states that the highest priority to the person that is doing the lying is to avoid responsibility. According to Harvard Business Review, IN BUSINESS THERE IS NO SHORTAGE OF LIES AND PEOPLE THAT TELL LIES AT ALL LEVELS OF BUSINESS. A person who has power over others often feels more comfortable lying (Rosenthal & Anderson, 2011). There are behavioral signals and signs to manipulative liars. When evaluating a potential liar, three behavioral signals must be considered. Those three signals are discomfort, evasiveness, and manipulation.
Consideration has to be given to what is said and how it is said, and understand behavioral clues or entrapment defense (Rosenthal & Anderson, 2011). Discomfort-the person seems uncomfortable about the things that they are talking about and will want to hurry up and cut the conversation. Example, the person that is doing the manipulative lying will always have a meeting or another phone call shortly after a discussion begins, appearing to always be busy. The second of the three behavioral signals are evasiveness-withholding information or provides vague conversation when specifics on information are requested. Manipulation is the third behavioral signal of a liar. Manipulation is the use of suspect data or lies to make promises that cannot be delivered on or keep a person under their control.
Manipulative people may provide a façade of being respectable to lure people into entrapment before finally showing their true colors (Brennon, 2016). Brennon (2016) also states that manipulative people can be passive aggressive or vicious and will resort to personal attacks and criticism. According to, Psychology Today, there are nine traits to manipulative people. Manipulative people lack insight and believe that their way of handling things is the only way. Manipulative people do not understand the concept of boundaries, they will feed off of people at the other person’s expense.
A manipulator will avoid responsibility for one’s own conduct by blaming others for causing the conduct. A manipulative person will prey on someone they consider weaker, especially conscientious people. They feel that they will have a successful chance of manipulating a kind person or a person that wants to help. They start with praise of that person’s willingness to help, but it slowly slacks off because it's only to get a service. Manipulative people will often talk behind your back the same way they talk to you about others.
Manipulative people will intentionally commit to misconstruing information and intentionally having misunderstandings. With a manipulative person you have to watch and observe them closely. Red flags will start to emerge and their true intentions show themselves. A manipulative person puts a gigantic amount of energy into imitating a good person. You have to reexamine, examine, and examine again your beliefs and your belief system because a manipulative person will attempt to manipulate your thinking. Such as using criticism as a way to try to control you or make you work harder for their benefit.
Know the signs….don’t let lying, liars, and manipulation make you miss your turn at bat….Why? Because fish don’t fry in the kitchen and beans don’t burn on the grill….Always move forward, never backwards and tricks are for goats.

What about your friends…They dog me out then get next to me
Just cause I am what some choose to envy…I let a lot of people depend on me
I never thought they would deceive me…Don’t you know when times got rough, I was standing on my own…
What about your friends…will they let you down again (Austin & Lopes, 1992).
Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni, where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. This week’s subject is toxic friendships….I sounded like a teacher didn’t I? You are a teacher too. I have always said that you are to teach people how they are to treat you, and that includes friends, family, and lovers.
According to Oxford Languages, toxic is very harmful and or unpleasant in a gradual subtle way. Relationship is described as the state of being connected and the regard in which people behave towards each other. So…if a person that you are connected to has unpleasant or harmful intentions towards you in a subtle way…. Toxic friendships drain you instead of elevating you (Lamothe, 2019).
According to Lamothe (2019), Some actions that is listed that a toxic friend may do:
According to Raypole (2020) true friends don’t just take, they also offer empathy for your concerns in all circumstances. A toxic friend adds to your stress, they may say and do things to upset you while you are communicating. True friends offer support when it is needed, in toxic relationships that support is never felt. One interesting thing from this particular article was that toxic relationships slowly began to infest and poison other close relationships. Boundaries about unacceptable behavior have to be set in any healthy friendship or know when the friendship has run its course and have to end. You are always the teacher when it comes to how people treat you. What about your friends….will they let you down again?

Welcome to this week’s Blonde Intelligence with me, Ms. Roni where I always seek to give you exquisite cranial repertoire. What would you do…if you could get with me and my crew…what would you do if you get caught with your pants down (Arnaude, Brown, Brodus, Caples, & Williams, 1995). This week I would like to speak about music and the second wave of Covid-19. The shutdown because of Covid-19 was sudden and unexpected which caused many industries to readjust, especially the music and television industries.
According to the World Economic Forum (2020) live performance revenue has been the most measurable casualty of the music industry. According to CNN, a model that the White House uses estimates that the growth in COVID-19 cases are so severe that we are headed towards a mandatory shutdown. As of now CNN is reporting that the state of Utah has no ICU beds and the city of Jackson in Mississippi is in the same situation. We have been told over and over that history repeats itself, that time only folds over. So, a second wave of Covid-19 has been predicted to be much worse than the first. What actions as a musician, artist, rapper, and/ or music industry professional do you do….to not get caught with your pants down?
The World Economic Forum stated some observational changes within the music industry due to Covid-19. One is the way people consume music, people are using smart TV’s, smart devices, and apps, with an increase in consumption of on demand MUSIC videos. As an artist this will tell you that a video to each song you release now is important to increase and maintain a fanbase during Covid-19. I have interviewed several artists that say their strategy during COVID-19 is to release a single every two to four weeks, which contradicts the data on what they should be doing. Another observation by The World Economic Forum is that advertising is down. There is loss of sponsorship revenue, that some artists are postponing releases because of the inability to tour and promote new albums, and loss of revenue due to cancellations of live events and concerts.
The music and film business has adapted through streaming and seems to be fairing out, but the sports and amusement park arena has a bit more of strategy to consider. The music industry has made some adjustments that are beneficial to revenue in the music industry during a possible second shutdown. Some ways are artist donation links….places like Live Nation and Afton Shows offer virtual live performance concerts. Afton Shows are open to all artists who sign up with them. Artists can do their own concerts using the livestream platform on livestream.com. This platform you can go live from all your social media platforms simultaneously and add others to include all of their social media platforms also. Meaning that a promoter could coordinate a concert and still make money. There are video apps where you can create short videos or long videos to keep your audience engaged during the pandemic. Quick is an app that is quick and easy that is high resolution without the extra cost and you can remove the watermark. Just some Blonde Intelligence suggestions…
Artists…you have had a trial run with Covid-19. Now, which crew are you with….Artists….what would you do if you get caught with your pants down…
