Here's another NEW video by CortesNyc and myself.
Back in 09' Cortes was asked to paint during a scene of rapper Yeyo's video shoot of "Please Dj".
I mentioned the video and shoot in an old blog post titled "Please DJ" (you can check out the official music video by clicking the previous link).
I had a blast filming the shoot and I can't forget the guy who helped me out that night big time, John Smalls! He helped me film some really good up high shots.

Sit back and enjoy! <3

If you follow me on twitter, you may have seen me ranting about how I just can't understand why boys and men walk around with their pants sagging below their derriere...
I just don't get it, I never got it.
I don't think it's cool or hip.
And I don't care if I sound like an old lady.
But why would you want your ass hanging out?
What's the pleasure in it?
What if you need to run for the train or hurry up while your crossing the street...
Well a principal in Memphis agrees with me and has started "Urkeling" boys.
Urkeling is basically pulling up a kids pants and tying them on each side until they look like the character Steve Urkel from the sitcom Family Matters...
I think this is genius... this should be done in New York schools too....

I've noticed that most of my big meal making happens on Sundays.
A few weeks ago after I purchased a new Martha Stewart Cobalt Blue Cast Iron Casserole Pot and ever since then, I've been on a stew mission.
My first stew exploration was an Old Fashion Beef Stew... I used a recipe from SoGood TV (click on the link to check out the video)
It was pretty simple to make this dish, and I made just enough so I could have left overs the next night.
The first night, I served the beef stew over white rice, I added a few sliced tomatoes on the side and topped it off with some fresh baked bread from a local Colombian bakery.
It's warm, sweet, cheesy and delicious.
I'm still on my stew kick, so the other night I made chicken stew. I served the chicken stew over white rice, and the sides were fried plantain and a avocado.
I put together a little slide show of all the ingredients I used in making the two stews.
I can't wait to try out more hearty stews, casseroles, and chili's in the next few weeks.

She's the sweetest lady I know and her blog is always on point.
I trust Kizzy with all of my make-up needs and inquires....

Today (Black Friday) while waiting for the 2:30pm Staten Island Ferry I encountered a lovely lady sleeping.
She was sleeping, standing, AND eating ice cream .... *gasp*
I couldn't help myself.
I had to record her.
She was so out of it plus she kept spilling her haagen dazs all over everyone.
I guess the combination of Thanksgiving and Black Friday took this lady down...
I hope you all enjoy this little "Sleepy Time" video I put together.
*PLEASE NOTE: THIS VIDEO WAS UPLOADED TO MY VIMEO PAGE AND CAN NOT BE PLAYED ON A MOBILE DEVICE - COMPUTERS ONLY KIDZ*

It's been a whole week and I haven't thanked everyone for all of the birthday love!
My birthday was last Saturday November 20th!
I had a wonderful weekend filled with birthday fun! A special thanks to my mom for the lovely Spa day on Sunday :)
Last Friday I celebrated my birthday with a bunch of friends at Belmont Lounge in Manhattan.
I had a blast and I'm so happy so many people came out!
It really meant a lot!
I love you all and I can't wait to do it again.
If you'd like to see the photos from the birthday celebration add me to Facebook :)

The other day Jay Z spit some lyrics on one of Kanye West's new tracks titled So Appalled. "Hammer went broke so you know I'm all focused," "I lost 30 mill so I spent another 30 / cos unlike Hammer / 30 million can't hurt me." (heard at 2:30)
MC Hammer heard about the track and twittered: "The answer to Jay comes on Oct 31,"
He then released a diss video called "Better Run Run"
I'm kinda of glad that Hammer responded to Jay because this rap war is going to give me something to laugh about for days...... My only issue is ,,,,, every time I think of MC Hammer I think of "Pumps in a bump" (see video below) **I mentioned this song in a blog post from Dec 2009 titled: "America's obsession w/ pumping it"

Everyone knows that I am intrigued by train station incidents.
A special thanks goes to Venita for sending me this clip.
This crazy older lady kicks another woman and throws her hands up to a man.
She's either crazy or drunk for sure... I'm just happy that other people on the train helped out...
The video's kind of long but the kick happens at/around 1:59 ...
*And this did not occur on the A train I think it was the F!

I know I'm a few days late but here's some video footage of Diva Mariah Carey falling down during a concert in Singapore ... the fall wasn't the funny part ..... it's the way her back-up dancers struggled while picking her up.
I feel so bad for the people that have to work for her ........... especially the girl who had to take off of Mariah's shoes.
I guess Mariah's preggers.... no one told her to be on stage with giant heels.
The other night I was watching Dancing with the Stars and I was pleasantly surprised to see R and B singer/writer/producer Ne-yo performing.
I can not stand his face ... and he's got a crazy mama but he can write and sing a hit song!!!
Here are my top 3 Ne-yo songs. These 3 songs always gets me dancing.
#3 - "Closer"
#2 - "Miss Independent"
#1 - "So Sick"
