ChanteSez … Listen to a titillating Mo Audio today!

16 Apr

Madam CJ

What’s on tap for Mo Audio this week? If listening to the powerfully sexy Madam CJ talk about how she wants to titillate you at her Le Courtesan Et Coquettes Noirs cabaret show on May 19 weren’t enough, trumpeter and all-around musician Dashill Smith gives the rundown on Music in the Park on May 20.

Then, of course, there are the hijinks of Slo Mo founders Carlton Hargro and DJ Larmarrous. I just get to enjoy the fun alongside my co-hosts — and I know you will, too!

Big shouts to Aalyah Duncan of A-List Events Marketing for getting Smith onto the show on such short notice. And for the always lovely Teya for gracing us with her presence while supporting Ms. Madam.

Tune in on ABLRadio.com today at 10 a.m., and again at 6 p.m.

ChanteSez … Sometimes you have to go missing

2 Apr

Someone recently asked me where the (over)use of ellipses — or dot dot dot — came from. My guess is texting. Who has time to write out words on a small screen?

Here’s the lowdown on this punctuation fave:

Ellipses are formally meant to indicate missing words, or their intentional deletion.

More commonly, they’re used to signal hesitation, which is also an appropriate use.

The key is to leave enough context and content so the missing words don’t distort your message. So text and type away, and remember why you’re taking the missing route.
