A Nasty Meme About Madonna’s Age

May 1, 2014

I found this mean-spirited beauty on Facebook, a nasty mean concerning Madonna’s age. CBGB OMFUG posted it.  For the record, I have no problem with the Material Girl’s age.

Sexy Pics of Beyonce’s 2014 Grammy Performance

January 26, 2014

First of all, because I expected a huge disappointment in the rap categories, I ignored watching the 2014 Grammy Awards.   Yet, as I spent too much time on Facebook instead, Beyonce’s Facebook page uploaded photos of her Grammy performance.

Risking to get sued, I decided to upload those steamy pics to this blog.  If folks want to sue, they will be suing one broke black man. I ain’t got a dime.  So, here’s the Beyonce pics. Enjoy.

Okay, as for the next pic, I couldn’t find it no where else on the Internet.  As of now, the only place a person will find this Beyonce booty pic is on her Facebook page.

Photographing Downtown Orlando’s The Beacham

May 23, 2013

Last weekend, The Beacham hired me to photograph patrons.  An Orlando nightclub, The Beacham exists in the downtown area.

First, I searched for the cheapest parking.  Parking usually runs between five to ten dollars.  I found a five dollar spot.

When you show them the receipt, The Beacham reimburses you for five dollar parking.

As you see by the sign, Fridays are Ladies Night. Women drink free all night.  Saturdays are free drinks before eleven.  Sunday is the Latin night’s all you can drink.

Back in 2011, The Beacham was named Best Nightclub by the Orlando Sentinel.

Just like with the first few, the following photos are taken by my cellphone.  I’ll post pro-photos at another time.

Fridays and Saturdays are predominately African-American.

On stage, you see the DJ and two dancers.  Also, high on the walls are huge video screens.

Richie Rich is the DJ.

For Latin night, I didn’t get the DJ’s name.  Yet, I did photograph the two Latin dancers onstage.

Because the place enjoyed my photos, The Beacham hired me again for the following weekend.

DJing An Arm-Wrestling Competition

April 16, 2013

Last Sunday night, I DJed at Orlando’s The Peacock Room, a last minute thing.

An arm-wrestling competition was going to take place.  I was asked to play 80’s rock music.  Yep, I had the genre, including the likes of Winger and Whitesnake.

The host was my buddy Mandaddy.

The table was moved to another area.  There was both guy arm-wrestling and female arm-wrestling.

A leg on the table broke.  So, it was replaced with another one.

Oh yea, yours truly was talked into competing.  I won my first round (I believe dude let me win).  Then, got slammed during my second.

I had so much damned fun.  I hope the event happens again. The organizer said it will.   I’ll be there.

Prince Party at Orlando’s Castle Knights

April 7, 2013

Last night, I drove to Castle Knights, a bar located in Orlando.

Castle Kinghts Local Pub

 

My friend Frankie Messina hosted a Prince party, the main reason for my showing up.  All night, Frankie played not only Prince music, but also music by groups Prince produced in the 80’s including The Time and Vanity 6.

On a screen, Prince movies and concert footage played.

For over two decades, Castle Knights was once known as Faces, a lesbian bar.   As Castle Knights, the bar welcomes everyone.

There’s talks of me DJing a Friday Happy Hour.  Because Castle Knights  is full liquor, it just might be the right spot for me.

Regardless, it’s a nice joint that I may return to in the future.

Erotique Derrieres: An Art Book for Booty Lovers

April 4, 2013

Knowing my love for the female posterior, a friend recommended I purchase Erotique Derrieres by Carlton Books.  This was over a decade ago. Soon enough, I found the book  in the local Barnes and Noble bookstore and bought it.   Boy, did I find a shining jewel.  For booty lovers craving an artistic taste, this book is for you.

I only got one problem.  You don’t see any black women.  How are you going to put together a booty book with no sistas?  Despite Carlton Books existing in the UK, you can’t tell me they couldn’t find any European black women or any other European women of color.

Still, despite the lack of diversity, I recommend this to my readers.  On that note, here’s the deal.  Looks like the book is out of print. Yet, for a good deal on a used one, try looking on Amazon.  Starting at $8.95, you’ll see high prices going up to almost seventy bucks.  Yet, I only paid $14.95 plus tax for my book.

Celebrating My Birthday at Orlando’s The Hideaway Bar

March 20, 2013

Last Monday, I turned 44.  To celebrate, I invited friends to The Hideaway Bar, a spot located in Orlando, Florida.

Me at 44.  I still have a hairline.  Yet, because my hair is always screwed up, I prefer wearing hats.

After most folks left around one, Casey and I headed to The Peacock Room.  My celebration was originally planned for The Peacock Room.   Every Monday, DJs Waldo Faldo and Rick Jones play classic hip hop and dance music, reason Peacock was my first choice.  Yet, these two weren’t on Peacock’s schedule.  At the last minute, they posted announcements on Facebook they were playing.  By this time, I had already scheduled for The Hideaway, something I really didn’t regret.

After all the boozing, I really don’t remember the roads I drove on the way home.

Oh well, I enjoyed my evening.  Folks paid for my drinks all night.  I’m thankful for the friends I have.  Plus a big shot out to The Hideaway Bar for the hospitality.
