Book Review

So i been trying to get back into the swing of things. Being at school really drains me to the point that i do not really get time for myself. So this week, i decided to do something fro me, and read a book.

Ok so maybe some people dont think reading a book is necessarily something done for fun, but to me it is. I used to read atleast 2-3 books a week when i had time to spare. But at school, thats out of the question.

Anyway the book i decided to pick up in called Hiding in Hip Hop by Terrence Dean

Ok so this book is basically the author Terrence Deans life story. From growing up in a home with a drug addict prostitute mother to being molested at age 13 by a male babysitter. With all the odds stacked against him Terrence managed to become well known in the entertainment industry even becoming a producer at MTV.

So whats the big deal, some may ask. Well the book takes a turn in the beginning from not being a basic memoir but more of a tell all without telling all. Terrence, throughout the book goes on to discuss sexual encounters he has had with major players in entertainment whether actors or artist in Hip Hop. These artist (some of which who have girlfriends and even wives) are participating in same sex encounters with Terrence behind this significant others backs. The other MAJOR thing about this book is no names are revealed, so your basically playing a guessing game the whole time.

Overall i have to say that this book was an 'interesting' read when it wasnt giving me a headache trying to figure things out. It wasnt the best "Tell All" i've ever read but it wasnt the worst either.

I'd have to say it fell somewhere between Confessions of a Video Vixen by Karrine Steffans


Insatiable by Heather Hunter

But with all that said, I still recommend this book as an interesting read.

Life is a Dance, From One Stage to the Next...

So because I absolutely love NY and all the free shows that happen every summer, I made it my duty to see one after work today. But before the show even started, I was entertained by this man who had not a care in the world and wanted to dance for no reason. I had to share the video I recorded of him.. absolutely hillarious.

Back to Business

Im back folks...finally! I know i said i'd come back on Sunday but between the celebrating and the fact that i thought I was melting (i call it my personal heat wave mentality) im back a little later then i suspected. But better late then never.

Anyway I wanted to share my wonderful birthday experience with all of you in blogger land....

I began my 20th year celebration by going to the NYC Sex Museum. Why you make ask? Well only because I thought it would be an enlightening educational experience. This picture I captured while there has to be the definition of the exhibit... entertaining::

From there I went to the Telectroscope (in Brooklyn) in which you can see London in real time. Check it out here http://www.tiscali.co.uk/telectroscope/home.php

And heres a pic I took..

I just love my hometown of Brooklyn.. you can find art everywhere...

Anyway, the next day I hit up a WONDERFUL Thai restaurant named Land... mmm thats all i can say. I had Salmon Fried Rice which was ahhh-mazing! Heres my rice:


So the next day I continued my celebration by first going to Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and it was wonderful. Heres the best shot I got

I went on to the South Ferry which was so nice even in the heat that I was persuaded to climb onto a table..

I ended my bday celebration at a beautiful restaurant.. Rosa Mexicano

they too get a yum from me...mmm

Overall I had a good bday and cant wait for more to come...a special shoutout to my friends who made each event special...some of them with blogs of their own :



I leave you with a pic of myself and ms LostInTheRhythm with the wonderful NYC Firefighters of engine 14

So although I am back I have to take another short break. But not because I'm uninspired. Nope! because im goin to turn 20 in three days. Yes thats right, my 20th birthday is 3 days away. So i will be spending this week celebrating, and working (cuz its also my first week back at work). Anyway, I shall be back hopefully on Sunday with great stories (hopefully).


But, on a sad note i want to say rest in piece to the wonderful brilliant amazing designer, Yves Saint Laurent. He will be terribly missed in the fashion world, for his eye he had for fashion.

Here are some of my fave pieces from a throwback YSL collection from Spring 2001

House Guests..

So a couple of days ago I woke up at 5am to the sound of screeching cats. I dont know if any of you have ever heard a sound like this, but its like nails being dragged down a chalkboard, or like baby animals being slaughtered. Its just horrible. I dont know where these cats came from, but it seems as though they have established their permanent residence in my garage. I have yet to figure out how they even got in.

So anyway, today when i was leaving my house, to my surprise what do i stumble upon but four kittens (born about a two days ago) being kicked out of my garage by my dad. I guess the shrieking of the stray cat was it giving birth. Anyway, I decided to share the pics i got of them with all. We were gonna give the kittens away bcuz they are so cute, but we left for like 30 minutes and went back and all the cats were gone. (i guess the parents came and moved them to a new location)

But I Love Her...


Shes my idol! And although I know in my heart i shouldnt say that too loud or too proud, for people may think i idolize all thing negative (drugs, alcohol, making a fool of myself), but i cant help it. I absolutely LOVE Amy Winehouse. And the fact that she battles her inner demons so publicly is such a shame.

Her recent performance at the Rock in Rio Lisbon concert proves that she needs an intervention immediately.

Her obvious disregard for her career is making me extremely sad. Her music is the soundtrack to my life, and the fact that she can no longer sing those songs I love let alone create new pieces, saddens me.

This is the Amy i once adored and looked up to...

but i am now constantly having to see the 'current' Amy...withering away and slowly killing herself.

Its onlii fair that i share with you what i recently seen that made me dedicate this post to the one and only Winehouse, and that was her recent performance at Rock In Rio. Below are the videos of a once amazing rising star, on the road to failure...

Horrible. Embarrassing. Disappointing. and downright Ridiculous! I can onlii hope Amy looks in the mirror and realizes that she can get help..and its never too late for a change/intervention. As upset as it makes me, i will still always root for her.

So instead of leaving this negative imprint of my idol in all of the minds of my fellow bloggers, i will instead leave you with a lovely performance when she was still good... Enjoy!

Imagine All of Us Just The Same..

I'm back..and not by any exciting force... I know i have abandoned LoveHateSensation and all my great blogger pals, but ive been feeling 'blah' these past few months. Blah about school (which is now over thank goodness), blah about my nightlife (which has been rather non existent lately), and blah about everything else I've been around.

But i'm back..I wish with some good news, but no. Instead i'm livid. Livid and annoyed! I went shopping yesterday, one of my favorites, hoping to rekindle that old flame i once shared w/ the wonderful cultural NYC. Instead i was annoyed by everything i saw. And what I saw was modern day conformity....

SoHo, once the place for individuals is now covered with a uniform. But not those classy cute preppy catholic school uniforms (which i wore a mere 2 years ago). No! its a uniform of the Hip Hop Punkster Hipster Posers (my friend likes to call them KANYE-SWAG-DUPLICATORS) .... what is this uniform you may ask? Well it was once something i thought would be cute for the spring, a new look that not everyone could pull off, but those that could would do it with class and dignity. I thought this until i experienced it first hand and it was completely overdone.

The first part of the uniform is the colored skinny jean...

now i myself cannot say i was not once into this jean..matter of fact i bought 3 in the winter excited to let them be seen by the world in spring. But yesterday after seeing them being sold in EVERY store (even on some street corners) and counting 9 girls in Forever21 with the exact same ones on and then a boy outside the store also wearing them, I realized, its time to let the jean go. And that is exactly what I did, I let that jean go to my 9 year old cousin. Maybe she can save it for when style will be recycled by the time shes in her late teens.

Part two of the uniform...the Kanye scarf..

You know you've seen it..cuz i seen it EVERYWHERE, and im sick of it! Now I am a scarf lover myself. I love how they keep my neck warm and are a great outfit accessory, but thats when there is a swift breeze outside, not when its 74 degrees. And i never been a fan of this style scarf to begin with. Now i have a few friends who own this scarf in many colors, and love it with all their might; but for me, this needs to go. If your not a performer on the Glow In The Dark tour and your not Kanye's entourage, maybe its time you let it go!

Keeping on the topic of Kanye, something i saw wayyy too much... shutter shades..

Now i know we couldnt tell Kanye nuthin', but i can tell you something... You look stupid!! your not blocking the sun, and your not wearing a prescription...leave those shades to the pros, K. West himself.

Last part of the uniform which worked my nerves yesterday were the faux gold rope chains:

These chains once made popular by Run DMC back in the day, were all well and dandy back then, but when paired with all these other things..it just doesnt work.

Conformity, I know nothing can ever be done to change this. I mean followers will always need someone to follow. Personally, I am not once to want to look like the next guy, and i am definitely going to try my hardest this summer to avoid this uniform by all cost.

You may agree, or you may not, but I hope that coming back to my old LoveHateSensation with such a passion can onlii bring positive posts in the future...

Bust A Move

So as usual I stumbled across something interesting. These inmates in the CPDRC detention and rehabilitation center in the Philippines dance to choreographed routines. On their main youtube page it says that dancing transforms negativity, and i think its a brilliant idea. Here is my favorite video of them doing Michael Jackson's Thriller (by the way it may look like its a coed prison...but they're all men lol)

heres the youtube page::
