Where you been, Rox?

Sorry I haven't been updating the blog as regularly as I usually do in the last week or so.  I've been really busy working on generating dope content for the blog and it's actually kept me from posting as I've been working long into the night on a few things.

The biggest project right now is a spoken word event I'm working as production manager on for Project People Foundation. I've been at Nuyorican Poets Cafe a few times scouting talent for the event and tomorrow night I'll be at the NYC Baha'i center for Urban Juke Joint, again scouting talent.  PPF is looking to expand awareness of their mission to a previously largely untapped demographic, so this event is their first attempt at reaching out.

My Mom and I are jointly producing this event and we are working on bringing in some sponsors to make sure this event is a big success.  We've been trying to lock in Parish Nation clothing, Janelle Monae and even MTV.  It looks like we'll get Parish Nation for sure.  We just don't know exactly what they'll be giving.  No word on the other two yet.

I also have some  other projects in the works that I won't get into in detail just yet as I think you'll be really surprised at what I put forward in the very near future.  Just know that it will make for some super dope original content.

I'm really excited for how well the blog has been received and very happy with how things are progressing as a result of my efforts here.  Please continue to spread the word and I will continue to work on bringing you a fresh perspective.

Nets vs. Heat

A few friends and I went to the Nets game tonight.  The home team took an "L" but we had a great time.  After the game we hung out with a few of the players from the Heat.  We talked and laughed for about a half an hour before the team manager called for the players to grab all of their stuff and head for the bus.  They signed a few autographs for the young ones in attendance and posed for photos.  Here are a few of my favorite shots from the evening...

True NBA fans will hate me for this but Hall of Famer Bob McAdoo was there as well but I didn't take a picture of him.  I did watch him sign a few autographs though.  I was too busy listening to the "Where the hell is Rafer Alston?" story.  Please forgive me.

Y'all Musta Forgot - Brandy Sings "At Last"

Can I just be one of the towels on that shelf?  Specifically the one that she uses on that day!
