“What have you done for me lately?” Another way of saying what have you done for me, period. Where have you been. It’s one of those things that people say when someone who isn’t very close with them suddenly appears out of nowhere and asks for help. And someone might say, “why should I even care and help you, where were you when I needed you, what have you done for me lately?” Janet Jackson is a very good communicator and app at using her music to communicate a broader message. Her 1989-90 album Rhythm Nation was about race relations in America and is a perfect example of that. This is not one of my favorite songs, but it’s a great song in the sense that the message is clear. And is about someone perhaps in Janet’s life who perhaps hasn’t been there for her lately and perhaps that person was once close with her and what’s she saying in this song about that person is essentially where have you been. And “What Have You Done For Me Lately” I believe is her way of delivering that message.

I’m an easy going guy who is never afraid to crack a joke. I’m almost always in a good mood, I believe the happier you are the better off you’ll be & the longer you’ll live. I believe in living life rather than being alive. Very hard to get me down. I tease because I care. I try to find humor in everything & everyone that I see. I tease anyone that I respect, care about, like, or love. If I’m not joking around with you, or teasing you, it is because I don’t know you well, don’t like you or you don’t mean a whole hell of a lot to me.
I blog about a lot of different things, because I have a lot of different interests and knowledgeable about a lot of those areas. How knowledgeable I am, you can decide that for yourself by checking out my blog. And we can talk about what is what in an adult professional manner. And perhaps even learn things from each other that we didn’t know going in.
