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.

Back in 2009, I had the pleasure of recording graff artist CortesNyc rock a roof top wall in Manhattan.
Check out the video I edited.
A special thanks goes out to the model at the front of the video Asheka.
And an extra special thanks goes out to Guillotine Cuts for providing the music track.
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.

I received a lovely birthday present from a lovely make-up blogger named Kizzy.

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....
