You Don’t Know Me, You’re Dead Wrong

Nice found footage, I’m a sucker for Doo Wop gangs and vintage cityscapes (albeit ever so brief in this video).

She Appeared Then Disappeared

She was only here for 48 years but she sure did live.

Here she is taking a video of me speaking about HER. In my humble opinion, she never got the credit she truly deserved. But alas our gurus and real leaders reign with silence and humility. It is only the mediocre who tout their strength, skills and ‘wisdom’.  Having known her was a blessing.

The 2nd photo is of Ari’s waist – she was so proud of her beautiful waist after bearing children. She told me that before her husband was killed, she dreamed of his passing. I tried calling her last week to say hi and arrange a visit. Unfortunately, I was unable to reach her.

RIP ARI UP.

Warning: when someone sends you to Baby Acapulco (ahem Mr. Autrand!) to drink the purple margarita (with everclear) never EVER convince the waiter to serve you “just one more” upon lapping up the 2 maximum limit. Cheers!

Booze Cruise

the start to an amazing evening

My friend Julie had her birthday party on a booze cruise around Manhattan. It was just days before I left for an extended trip to California. What a way to say good bye to NYC for a bit. She had a dj and a band perform. The philly crowd was out and the dance floor packed. I brought the Almond Roca, it was a hit.
