I am in LOVE!

No, not because he's handsome, but because his poetry speaks to me in ways that some poets that go over my head...can't. It's not some school girl crush, where I scribble his name across my Trapper Keeper pages, but it's a love for his words, passion, strength, potency, interpretations and his amazing ability to wrap imagery in symbolism. Mmm. I'm in love.





I saw him perform once at Nuyo's and I had to buy his chat book and lemme tell you, the pages are WORN.

Jesus, Take the Wheel...


Why? LOL It's actually a great idea, you know, if you don't feel like blow drying your tracks. O_O

You Melt My Heart To Stone






Right under my feet there's air made of bricks
Pulls me down turns me weak for you
I find myself repeating like a broken tune
And I'm forever excusing your intentions
And I give in to my pretendings
Which forgive you each time
Without me knowing
They melt my heart to stone

And I hear your words that I made up
You say my name like there could be an us
I best tidy up my head I'm the only one in love
I'm the only one [in] love


These lyrics are so potent and I am sure that 9 out of 10 women have felt this way at some point in time in dealing with a significant other. So is feeling like this worth it? Should you continue to hold on to someone when you're the only one in love? When should you just let go?

Happenings At Honey




Every other Wednesday, here in fabulous Soho, I meet with the incredible beauties behind HONEYMAG.COM. We sip wine, share ideas, feed off each other's energies and just unwind. It's good for the soul, I swear. Once, we even brought out our photog's camera whored ourselves to the lens. View, here.

Somebody Please Make Her Stop

Straight up outta movie scene

That'll turn m
y life to Steven King's
Up late night l

I told her

She never
let it go

Kanye, you are certainly on to something here.
PS, Honeymag.com (one of my many employers) had a very interesting article about RoboCopism.
Read it, HERE.

Late much? Here's some PR Pics!

So, I finally got some pics of PR and for some reason, they are super tiny and when I make them bigger, super pixelated. :( Boo! Oh well, you can get the jist of it. Enjoy.
Airporting it.

On the streets of Old San Juan.


Looking fierce in the lookout tower.

Group shot.

Jake and Chad looking too happy!


I could get used to a view like this.

I've never seen water so blue.

What a view!!!


Underground Railroad?

Working the fort, as usual.


Historical Puerto Rican Shiz.

Welcome to Old San Juan!

Tonya is working her Sports Illustrated Cover!

Merman Jake is killing this pic!

Following Jake's lead.

Time for a photo shoot, or what?

Lovin' this pic of my boy!Heading out in San Juan. HOLA!

Keeping it flirty in the pool with my BFF. Flotation devices?


There's my boy. Don't let the smirk fool you, them rocks HURT!

Almost like a postcard.

If you're not jealous, you should be.

Just casually walking and posing on the beach.

Even though Jake is sleepy, we're headed out!

He Said/She Said

As I was transcribing an interview I did last week with General Steele (half of Smif N Wessun), he started saying some cool things about me. He doesn't know me personally, so these were just general things about me being a writer. I loved what he said, so I felt like sharing. There are moments that happen like these often in interviews and from now on, I think I should share. So, there will be more self indulgent quotes from celebs I interview soon to come. Don't judge me! Love me.




You're a boss in this hip hop thing. You're a writer. You get the information out to people that would never know about things otherwise. You have the inside edition. I couldn't imagine how many people you speak to in regards to doing what you're doing. Keep doing your thing, ma.

Slam of The Ages

Who knew teenagers could be so dang deep and just all around incredible! I mean, if you thought our youth was going to hell in a handbasket (never understood this saying) well, these kids are here to show you otherwise. I went to the Slam of the Ages last Friday and let's just say, I was completely floored. Here is one of my fave pieces of the evening. There's more, but apparently blogger will only let me upload one video per post. LAME!

I also got to see one of my long, lost buddies who came to visit for the week for her Bday and specifically this slam. Jade, you rock my freakin' world! I also invited this actress that I interviewed earlier in the week and she showed up! Not only did she show up, but we clicked like crazy and partied all night, burlesque and all. It was an amazing night. There was another long lost friend involved, but I really shouldn't get into that. All in all, a phenomenal weekend.

A Jazzy Thing Happened On Thru The Square

video
So I was just walking through Union Square the other day, minding my biz, when...

Yeah, these dudes are sooo dope. I forgot their name, so if you recognize them, please enlighten me. It's just good to see young brothers (I so so pro black right now) doing something outside being a wannabe rapper or a dope boy.

Either way, I hope you enjoy these dudes as much as I did!
