J*DaVeY in Blender , sept 08 !





major !

homesick wednesday whatever .

sigh .
i miss LA today . i'm always happy to leave home for new adventures , but when i'm gone too long i always hit days like today . days when i go thru my phone book & send i miiiisss yooooou msgs to all my aces . days that i loathe my pale summer skin & long for the beach . days that i skim thru all the LA party sites & drool over all the fun i'm missing . my family , my car , my bed , my d x s , earle's grill , roscoes , fatburger . . . shit , i even miss the smog . tomorrow i'll wake up & be fine , but on days like today i get a little beside myself with homesickness . it's natural . i'll try not to complain . the beach is where u make it , i guess , so i'm glad to be in philly building sandcastles with 2 of my fave boys . d'leaurean & ferrari make the cars that go screw . mixtape coming soon to a blog near u . maybe .

the day at the studio was productive . we started the "classic" today : questo on drums , d'leaurean on keys , glasper on piano , derek hajj on thump , & that's only so far . we also finished another song on our checklist , so i'm happy to see things actually get done . i started to lay the blueprint for the feature film (& short) with mister superstar . i only managed to eat ramen noodles today , considering the house is chock full of everything u could imagine . i finally updated my personal myspace page with new photos since sir hollywood banged on me . speaking of , he helped ease my homesickness today by sending me some unreleased eazy e & a classic ice t jam . sweetness . i'll be cruising the 'shaw in no time .

the latter part of my day was hit with a little bad news . nothing i can't handle , just bad enough to cause my mind to stir outta control a bit . now my wheels are turning faster than they were before . funny how u entrust ur child with people who are paid to know what they're doing , yet u find out that only u can raise the child the right way . no more third party frustration . i gotta take the reins on this one & let them take credit for it in the end . i guess . like matty j used to say : fuck em & feed em fishsticks . . .


like i said
tomorrow will be better .
till then
l . g . b . n . a . f !

*swooooon*





how can u hate such a cute face ?

Hi Fashion Cash In : Opening Ceremony !



on fri 08 . 08 . 08 , we attended the Olympic retail celebration at the Opening Ceremony store in New York City . the event was featured today on one of my fave fashion sites , refinery29.com , with yours truly featured on the main page . fun . the night was full of nyc fashion mavens , champagne , a special NIKE pop-up store , ping-pong tourney hosted by jewelry designer Phillip Crangi , a Good Humor ice cream truck , a Calexico taco stand , & a cheerleading squad . i was still so exhausted from the night before & it showed all over my face , but i never pass up a chance to throw on my best duds & take photos . folks went craze for my vintage gitano hi-waist genie pants . i'm still thanking my lucky vintage stars for that find . anyway , the party was pretty major . . .

adrenaline !



the Red Bull party was fun . i vow to never drink 4 red bulls in 1 night ever again . fabulous people drank & danced , young men were turned to screaming front row groupies , & i wore a scandalous dress owwww ! . . .

anyway , the Knux rocked it


we were in the presence of friends . . .



& legends . . .



brook d'leau . . .


& i rocked the set with our band , the PRTY PPL


New York boys , i do enjoy . . .




after the show its the after-party . . .





after the after-party came a blurry late night soiree in an adorably dark & smoky club in the west vill . this was my second weekend in a row stumbling outta that place . all in good fun , we had a blast & made it safely to a diner before i drew a blank . the actors were talking abt scientology i think . there was a girl from ireland saying we could quite possibly be cousins , & the dude next to me kept telling me to "try his kielbasa" . i laid on a white shag rug & listened to cree summers for a while , & i woke up in a circular bed with a red velvet headboard . that was thursday .

friday was spent in brooklyn , & the night was rather quiet . jasi , d'leau , & i hit the vogue / opening ceremony party for 08.08.08 & drooled over clothes while sipping champagne . after that , dinner at paladar before heading back to fort greene for much needed sleep . now i'm on the bolt bus back to philly wishing i had a cup of coffee to wrap my psyche around . i'm hoarse & all partied out . maybe i should save some party energy for my upcoming birthday . i'm getting old ; i can't really hang like i used to . . .

. . . yeah right . thank u new york city . god bless u . goodnight .
