EVENT: Battle Of The Superfreaks

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Last month I joined fellow Rekstizzy fans before the holidays to celebrate the release of his music video for his track "Drunk Dial." (If you haven't already, check out his page on Facebook for pictures of the event)

It's never a dull moment when Rek and his crew are around -- so I encourage everyone to drop all their [lame] Wednesday plans and call their peoples to come through to the Battle Of The Superfreaks!

In the meantime, you can stream Rekstizzy's album, Fake It Till You Naked below.

MUSIC: RIP Etta James

Friday, January 20, 2012

Just received the sad news that Ms. Etta James has passed away today at the age of 73.

In honor of the singer who's name will forever live on among the best of the blues, I'm posting a video of one  of her songs that I've been listening to a lot recently.



I know that Adele, an openly avid fan, must be pretty upset by the news.
Check out her cover of Etta's "Fool That I Am" below. 



Rest In Peace Lady James.

LIFE: "Shit ____ Say"

Thursday, January 19, 2012

I've been thoroughly amused by this "Sh*t ____ Say" video epidemic that's hit Youtube recently. Of course everyone's jumped on the bandwagon so some are not are funny as others.

My personal favorite is "Shit Hispanic Girls Say" and "Shit Abuelas Say".  Oh and youtube went on to recommend the Pichy Films Latino Siri Video which is f*cking hilarious!

LIFE: Shakespeare Moment

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

"A Monday by any another name is still the worst day of the week."
I realize this is true of the first day back to work after a long weekend. Do you agree?

MUSIC: Tyler The Creator // "F*** This Election"

Thanks to PMA (Pretty Much Amazing) I got a song for the day.

Song was made 4 year ago during the Obama/Cain pre-election period.
I wonder what songs will be made about this upcoming election.

Love me some political raps -- Enjoy this one.

MUSIC: The Weeknd // "Appointment"

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Yes I admit it, I have fallen off the face of the blogging world -- my apologies for not updating with ANYTHING in the past week and a half (is it?).

Partied too hard last Friday and lost my phone on the LIRR - lovely. But on a good note I did have some Malaysian food that night that was amazing!

I will update with something soon - probably with a picture of my amazing Kate Spade card wallet - thing.

But for now, I thought I could share the song I currently have stuck on repeat.

MUSIC: Ian Foster // "Tell Me It's True"

Wednesday, January 4, 2012

A little 80's funk in this cold NYC weather - makes me feel like I've transported back to a time when my parents were just two young [retarded] 80's teens in love.



Enjoy :)

FOOD: Rickshaw Dumpling Bar "Permanent" Station in Times Square

Tuesday, January 3, 2012


A few months ago, a few Food Trucks were banned from the streets of midtown Manhattan. Since then I often find myself dreading lunch outside since there isn't much of a [good] food choice around my area in my opinion.

Somewhere around late Fall the stationary empanada stand in Times Square (across from the Toys R Us and Swatch) opened up and although I became irate, mostly because I wouldn't ever pay $3 for an empanada, I found that it was afterall convenient.

On my way to midtown comics tonight I bumped into the Rickshaw Dumpling Bar stationary stand (43rd and Broadway). I admit, I have never had any of their dumplings (although I popped that cherry tonight) but I'm really excited to see that the food trucks have a chance at coming back to Midtown, although they'll have to do so sans wheels.
I asked the cashier about the stand - he said for now they have a 2 year rental lease on the stand and that other food stands would be popping up soon. I can't wait! ~ I really hope that Mexicue and the Treats Truck get a spot among other great trucks.
