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)
