am i a trekkie?

the people that know me pretty much know i dig stark trek. as i started thinking about it, i realized i had watch all of the series between two and seven time. i started noticing reoccring themes and nods to other series.

so me being me i started taking some notes. then i started asking others what if they had noticed them as well or was i main this stuff up in my head.

then, i realized that most of my friends weren’t on it like that. and, i started to think maybe i was a trekkie.

so, as i continued to dig- i saws what people were out there really doin. there were conventions, people dressing up in uniforms, putting spock ears on. then i thought- nah, i’m not a trekkie.

well i guess im goin to see where about i land. i’m lookin to connect wth people all over this spectrum and see bout it. i’ll update y’all here on what i stumble upon.



where are my creatives?

Hello folks!

i’m interested in knowing what mediums my creative friends are passionate about. not just from the way they express themselves, but what they like to enjoy out there as well. i’ve toyed with an idea for several years, but now i believe it’s time to really put some thought into it.

over the next few months i will reveal more, but until then i will just showcase some of the fa bo lo us ( i can spell, but the raper has ruined the spelling of this word for me!) friends and people i’ve encountered over the years. for me it will be a trip down memory lane in a sense. for you, some good music, photos, placing to hang out, and dance your moody blues away.

see ya soon!

love is love,

cookie throw down!

i might have challenged the ladies at my local bar to a cookie throw down a couple weeks ago. ummm, i didn’t know they were so competitive. i mean 2 of them are in my fantasy football league and rib me pretty good when they beat me, but this is a whole nother level. i did get a tip yesterday from one of ’em, but we’ll see what it does for me.

all i gotta say is Rachel Ray don’t fail me now! i would’ve used a recipe from Paula Deen, but i only have like 50 pounds of butter in the house and i did’nt feel like running back out to the store to get more…

i love the fact that my hood has random cookie throw downs on any given Sunday!

wish me luck and there will be pics of all the cookies later. if ur down in astoria- u know where we’re at. bring milk!

a journey of 1,000 miles…


dance like no one is watching. this is something people say to encourage a person to be free spirited and fully indulge in a moment fun. well, what do you say to a person who wants to write and share awesome things he discovers with the world, but doesn’t make much time to do so? blog like no one is reading? perhaps.

other options might just be to ask said reluctant writer questions about what they’re trying to accomplish; let them know some of the things you are doing to stay motivated; or you could just opt to jedi mindtrick them and move along.

i’ve happened across a lot of things i feel are excellent pieces of work. i’d like to take a moment and share just one with you tonight. The song is Reverse by the group SomeKindaWonderful – when i heard the first few lines i was drawn in by the words, and the way the melody playfully bounced around the doo wopish musical landscape i grinned thinking to myslef- holmes just smashed that.

not for nothin, the video is awesome as well. it’s been updated with words so you can see how the story is being told.

i really enjoyed this and i hope you do too!


p.s. thank you for the jedi mindtrick…
