Back out of the jacuzzi...

So its been a while since my last post. I realize what a commitment this whole blogging thing requires. And for good reason. We can experience so much in so little time that we can also forget. These moments are not only for you to look into and maybe get turned on to something new, their part of what I do and how I live my life.
Well, this past weekend I got to take part in a new movement happening in Brooklyn. The MyUberlife Rooftop Experience.Deity on Atlantic the former synagogue turn nightclub and living quarters just launched a roofdeck that is a little oasis in this great borough.

Hosted by MyUberlife in partnership with The Brooklyn Romance this new "private club" will sooner than later become the hot deck to park yourself at on a sunny Brooklyn day if you got the in's. Think of it as a little bit of that Soho house feel laced with Brooklyn flavor. They also have an aquatic element in the form of an infinity jacuzzi which I took full advantage of.

It was a day of live music showcasing a few emerging artists. We were graced with performances by Nicholas Howard who started it off on a hot note,

Rebecca Cherry brought in her own string section adding an angelic vibe to the roof.

and Naja Rosa who belted a sultry bluesy set that stirred things in the right direction.
Added were a couple cameos by Jenny Bapts who sang a quick accapella of "Rock with You" and a gent by the name of Shu who laid out some soulful keystrokes.

On the Dj side we had a solid trio, I had the opening set and led into performances then Hardy dropped a flyer than fly set post performance and MSB grabbed the baton and just took it into overdrive.The Roof was on fire!

It was an all out great day with some great people. Smiles all around.

Life is great.

Special shout goes to John Walder who captured moments of this crazy and amazing day. We were blessed with a double rainbow!!

Til next time. Get in where you fit in.

Pics from the Pin Up Poet Book Launch

This week I got to catch up with my lovely and multi talented friend Andrea Grant for her Pin Poet book launch party at Le Poisson Rouge. Andrea also has an animated series called MINX, a comic with a character based on her dreams. The woman gets deep.

I got to mingle with a few of her loyal fans of her comic and her pin ups. How fun is it to know a friend of yours has some true fans?! I also fancied the tattooed pin ups in the crowd. Theyre fun girls to know ;)

Spring wanting Summer

Ive been seen
Stuck in between
Innocently white sheets

Ive been seen
Stuck in between
Irregular Heart beats…

Ive been seen
Swimming up stream
And I cant really tell
Where our line meets

If youre following this theme
Its not really extreme
You just Trust in me
This is what I do

This wont be the last time
I’ll be in this same line
Because Its real hard to find
My way to you.
