Tameeka Time Moderates! Tonight!

Tonight I will be moderating a live web based art show.
The show is called CortesNyc's Art Studio Live. I talked about it in one of my previous blog posts. Basically Art Studio Live is an extension of Cortes' popular youtube channel. On this show he draws live, answers questions, gives away prizes and I moderate the chat room and operate the different cameras. The show is all web based. You can join the chat room via your computer, your smart phones, or your tablet devices. All you have to do is go to: livestream.com - sign in with your facebook account - search "CortesNyc" and you'll be directed to the show's page. Here's a direct link to tonight's show so you can skip a few steps but it's really simple to join us.

This week we'll have a special guest on the show and a theme! The theme is Wizard of Oz. I will be dressing in costume for tonight's episode. And, the special guest is one of my favorite artists. Her name is Paigey and I've spoken of her a few times on tameekatime.com and interviewed her a few years ago. If you like what you see join us TONIGHT AT 9:30 PM EST and find out what Cortes and Paigey are up to. Join the chat room, hang out with us, ask the artist questions, ask me questions, or just come to see the free art being drawn live!

I will be giving away a prize to whoever posts a picture to Tameeka Time's facebook fan page of themselves in a wizard themed costume/outfit. The winner will announced at the end of the live stream episode.

Beyonce Gives Birth To A Meme

I am a fan of Beyoncé. I've always been a fan of Beyoncé. I was looking forward to seeing her have the best Super Bowl halftime performance ever in the history of super bowl halftime performances and she did.

I just re-watched the full 15 minute performance and she was something fierce on stage. My favorite part of the performance was when she started dutty wining. And, I loved the way Kelly and Michelle (of Destiny's Child) joined Beyoncé on stage and sang Bootylicious.

A few weeks ago I wrote a post describing how and why Beyoncé was winning 2013 and how sexy her GQ promo pics were.

Myself and most of the internet were pretty impressed by how hot she looked after only giving birth to her daughter Blue Ivy a year ago. She looked trim, soft, and sexy in those GQ photos and that's why I was so surprised to see the gifs and photos of her 33 fierciest moments during the Super Bowl Halftime Show. There were certain angles where she looked very strong and defined.

Were we all hoodwinked by the GQ photos? This is not a good look after the lip-sync scandal following the 2013 presidential inauguration of Barack Obama. This whole situation reminds me of the popular meme: What You Think You Look Like vs What You Really Look Like

BuzzFeed's Fierce Moment post about Beyoncé did not come off as malicious. But things took a turn and the "Unflattering Beyonce Meme" was born. Beyoncé's publicist Yvette Noel-Schure contacted BuzzFeed asking them to please remove or replace a number of unflattering photos of Beyoncé. The team at BuzzFeed responded in the most fabulous way by creating a new post containing a screen grab of Yvette's email and listing the unflattering photos mentioned by Yvette.

The most popular of the bunch was this photo below.

Here's a few reinterpretations that cracked me up:

Justin Timberlake is Back!

The guy above standing in a wet t-shirt and a guitar on his back is Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake is a singer / actor who was apart of one of the biggest 90s boy bands in the US; Nsync. Justin left his boy band days behind since 2002 and has made a name for himself as a chart topping singer and as an actor. 

Two of his songs that I consider my favorite are Rock Your Body and Sexy Back.

I respect him for taking time off from singing to try acting and actually becoming successful at it. He's not the best actor in the world but I did like him in The Social Network

This is going to be a great year for music, a few musicians that I love are releasing new albums, like The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Queens of the Stone Age

Yesterday Justin who is newly married tweeted about his new album cover and track list for The 20/20 Experience. I'm pretty pumped about it. 

And if you haven't heard it already -- here's his first single off of the album called "Suit and Tie."

Pizza Time

Last weekend I headed to Tribeca for a two-hour pizza making class.
The class was held at the AOA Bar and Grill. A single class is priced at $80/session but I came across a living social deal so I ending paying $40 for the class.

The restaurant was spacious and the setup was adorable. I do plan on returning to AOA Bar and Grill for a glass of wine and pizza one night. Overall I enjoyed the class and the price was well worth it. The only thing that disappointed me was the fact that we didn't make pizzas.

We made calzones instead. I do wish we were told that at the beginning of the class or it would have been helpful for this to be displayed as a disclaimer on the restaurants main site.

We did learn all of the necessary steps needed to make a pizza such as making the dough, kneading the dough, stretching it, tossing it, and how to prepare it for the oven.

I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of my calzone and impressed that I was able to make dough from scratch. It's something I didn't think of ever doing. We learned how to make focaccia bread and garlic knots but we didn't put the garlic knots in the oven. Chef Robert Farley was adorable, very helpful, and gave anyone who needed special attention his time. There was a maximum of 30 attendees in the class and a lot of people came with friends or relatives so it was a friendly group of people to be around. I do see myself taking another cooking class. Maybe not another pizza (calzone) making class but I'm ready for another culinary experience. To view more photos from the pizza making class go to facebook and like my fan page

Freaky Friday - Part 2 (The Re-Up)

What is it with Friday's and these celebs being so "kray-kray"?

Last week I posted a photo of "rapper" Kanye West wearing what looked to be a homemade red ski-mask. Probably something his intern or his baby mama Kim Kardashian put together for him.

At first I threw all the shade at him for this but after checking weather.com and realizing that it was cold as hell in Paris .. I see that ski masks were necessary that day.

So I turned the shade down and stopped judging... but I did wonder why the ski-mask wasn't bedazzled.

Lo and behold, this morning the Internet starts spitting out photos of Kanye performing in Abu Dhabi wearing a blinged out face mask, a feather rabbit/bunny looking head gear, and a straight-jacket. I guess I have to get up on my high-fashion because oh hell.. what happened here?

I did call it with the blinged out face mask. But, I don't know if I'm happy that he followed through.

The straight-jacket is a gimmick done many a times but the blinged out face mask is new to me.

Someone posted a really bad video clip of Kanye at a concert in Abu Dhabi. You can watch it by clicking here if you like but it's long (13min),  very shaky, and he's ranting and using an auto tune device. In the words of Sweet Brown "ain't nobody got time for that."

Kanye may need to take a seat very soon or at least when his baby is born.

What a way to start off Black History Month.
