MUSIC: El Teke Teke

Monday, July 30, 2012

In the Dominican community, this song is fire right now and I can't get it out of my head.

Oh and of course when I was searching for it on Youtube, I got this video first: 
(Oh how I love Dominican humor - jajaja!)

I can't watch this without dying of laughter... 

Off to start another week - feeling oh so good!


MUSIC [Event]: Crotona Park

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Three weeks ago I attended the kick-off  True School NYC Summer Park Jam Series and had a great time! I'm a late 80's baby who can admit I was extremely late to the hip hop music scene, especially when it came to joints that weren't mainstream radio jams.  Most people my age refer to early 90's and late 80's tracks as "Old Skool Hip Hop," but the truth is the REAL old school goes further back. I was fortunate enough to get a little taste of it. I got a chance to listen to some really great DJs do their thing. 

This Thursday is the last Park Jam, and DJ Africa Bambaataa, DJ Jazzy Jay, and Kool DJ Red Alert are all gonna be there.  Here's to hoping I can make it and encouraging everyone and anyone who can make it to go check it out. 

Enjoy a few of the pictures I took from the last event :)

Can't party on an empty stomach - Pizza & knots FTW.

The masses.

Bboy cipher.

Kept trying to get video of him - this little boy's gonna be a famous bboy one day, no doubt.


LIFE: Love the color of violet

A special thanks goes out to my coworker Raymond Haddad who took these amazing shots! 
I actually bought a new scarf this weekend (the colors of sunset) which I plan on wearing this weekend - pictures definitely coming soon!

LIFE: Welcome July! (Photo dump)

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Haven't had much of a chance to post, so with a little help from my 4 PM coffee I'm whipping up a simple photo dump post. I wrapped up April with an amazing concert - I went to go see the amazing Flamenco singer Buika at the Highline Ballroom in NYC. Simply amazing! I cried (yes actual tears). 

Little Pie Co. is expensive, but everyone who has stuffed their face with a mini justifies the ridiculous price ($8). Two trips in one month? I'm starting to feel the calories rack up ... time for more boxing! Seriously, you want to bring joy to those around you - grab a pie. Preferably Sour Cream Apple Walnut - oh baby! 

location: 43rd st. between 9th and 10th Ave.

Had a bad hair day, headwrapping was still in my thoughts, and boom I went ahead and did this: 

I thought people would think I had gone insane, but most - actually all - the people I came into contact with that day were all excited about the up-do. A coworker of mine, who does photography on the side, asked to take a few pictures of me even (they turned out amazing!) So yeah, success! I'm definitely snagging a few more cloths for Summer bad hair days!


MOVIE: Barfi

Tuesday, July 3, 2012

Thanks to @kari_shma on Twitter for posting about this movie. I agree that the trailer to this film really does pique my interest quite a bit. I'll definitely be on the lookout for this when it finally releases.
