"Build A (Brooklyn) Bridge & Get Over It!" -BK Pride Month Starts NOW!

Now it's NO great mystery that I call Brooklyn home. Not only do i live in it, I live FOR it! I do EVERYTHING all within the borough except vacation here. And I may start even doing that, if this economy gets worse (lol). Feel me? Anyway, a collective group of friends and associates, like minds, and forward thinkers as well as myself, have gotten together to form a Facebook group an start a campaign called "the Bridge Is Over!" promoting BK pride, networking, and a better social life...off line as well as on. Pushing for $ to be spend in our communities not somewhere over the bridge. There's NOTHING in Brooklyn you can't do, and NOTHING folks who love it (from here or not) can't do either! BK STAND UP! The revolution will be on-line! Click here to join us. April 1st the begins.

"Flashing Lights" Paparazzi Pics (Pt.138)

Ummm was this some early April Fool's joke that was being played? Cause after waiting for a good 45 mins to get in, damn near EVERYONE on line was told that their name was NOT on the list! Folks that were cutting the line to get in first, was cut from getting in all together! Not one to take "NO!" for an answer. I found a lucky link to get in...on the red carpet at that! Young Lord (Ernie Gaines' super producer) came through in the clutch, to save Tiff (Butch Diva) and I from disappointment and making it an early night. Once inside, there was no REAL excitement other then the open bar. Steph O'Con made it inside already and so we just made the best of things dance to whatever seemed catchy. After Keri arrived seems like the party made a bee line to the vip area she was posted up at! Once that happened, what little vibe that WAS going on, was gone! And so was we! D-Nice spun Ernie's single "So Sorry" and so was we that we were so pressed to come out. Uno!

"My Girl Likes To Party ALL the Time!" -Lovin' the Club...Literally!

As the weather gets better, and Spring has been fully sprung, sometimes tensions in relationships worsen and one starts to notice a sudden change in behavior. One may begin to wonder..."Is she see someone else?" Not that this has happen to me (or maybe it has, who knows). Well here's advice on what could be going on, It may not be another GUY but actual "the Club!" So fellas, please don't let this is "wake up call" go to voice mail. Lol. Read along the clues that your boo maybe "Lovin' the Club."

1) She knows the names and addresses of EVERY club/bar/lounge in town by heart, and can remember the other three names the club used to go by...in alphabetical order!

2) She wears VIP armbands as bracelets and hand stamps like tattoos.

3) She gets "shout-outs" from the DJ whenever you walk in to any club.

4) She has all party promoters in her top 5 cell numbers.

5) Receives cheek kisses from the bouncers, the cashier, the coat check girl, the promoters, the bartenders, the DJ, the owner AND the damn rest room attendants, yet NEVER worked there.

6)Frequents after work parties, but barely even works!

7) You only "date" between the hours of 5am to 8am.

8) You one day notice a group of off duty cabbies pointing and snickering, as you walk pass with her arm in arm.

9) She bought eye contacts the same color of Hpnotiq.

10) She carries around in her purse an array of wristbands, just to sneak into VIP.

11) Her daughter's name is Alize', and the twin are called Gin & Juice.

12) Her work clothes look damn near like her club clothes!

13) At least 5 of your good friends you know claim that they've taken her home after just meeting over breakfast after a night of partying, hence the secret nick name "Diner Vagina"

"Flip Hilson" -Keri Is So Very...

Okay follow industry party hoppers, Keri Hilson is doing a not so hush hush album release party tonight so start texting with the quickness anyone you know that will get you inside. Even if you come dressed as a bartender to get in the building I'll understand your motives. LOL. I'd give you the address but that would be TOO easy for you and I know you just LOVE the challenge! Hahahaa See ya there! I'll try to blog as much as possible for you...If I even get in.

"Flashing Lights" -Paparazzi Pics (Pt.137)

Trust me if I could have invited you out to this one, I definitely would have gone that route, cause this one was a BANGER! My long time good friend Aimee' had her yearly B'day/Temple U Reunion this Saturday past and as always it REALLY kicked off well! The energy and vibe was just RIGHT that night...You know what I mean? Her younger brother who works closely with Kid Capri, Dj ummm...
(Damn he's gonna kill me, I forgot his DJ name) Oh yeah it's Technician the DJ, he KILLED it! I, yes me, helped out with mic duties to get folks amped up (as if they weren't already). No one really wanted the night to end. Those that didn't get enough I've invited out to Tamboril again for "the Class Reunion" this Friday. Our monthly every LAST friday event. So you're more than welcome to come out too! Once again Happy B'day Ms. Longombee, yet another GREAT one.
