deep inside i must be an a-sexual english white man. i love THE SMITHS, although they’ve had some controversy…i still dig the music. special shoutout to MORRISSEY/SMITHS night at SWAY every sunday for some years now. OSCAR, we need to go party there soon!
some great SMITHS lyrics…
“i’ve come to wish you an unhappy birthday, cause you’re evil and you lie, and if you should die i may feel slightly side, but i won’t cry…may the lines hang heavy and deep tonight” -unhappy birthday.
“for we have been through hell and hight tide, i think i can rely on you. and yet you seem to recoil, heavy words are so lightly thrown. and yet i’d leap in front of a flying bullet for you. so what difference does it make?” - what difference does it make?
every friday night in NYC at SANTOS PARTY HOUSE, it goes down. by “it” i mean, the best thing to happen to new york city (since 1992). finally a place to go on the weekends for locals (and visitors). NO DRESS CODE, NO VIP, NO BOTTLE SERVICE…basically, no wackness.
*wait, that’s not even as packed as it gets.
*legends all night…POS and TIP
*OSCAR (repping 1992 and VIOLETTE) with SHAYNE.
*JAVON and ELLE (repping VIOLETTE too)!
*TIP is no joke on the ones and twos.
*ALLISON, DIANE and ERIN
*MICK JAGGER came through with designer girlfriend L’WREN SCOTT after her show during fashion week. it was really crazy to see him there, because 1. it’s mick jagger and 2. it was like weekend at bernies the movie.
*A-RON the downtown don and JR.
*YOUNG SCOOZLES and MORDECHAI looking like zombies. you would too if you partied here.
if you’re anything like me and you hate shopping in real life (lines, aggressive sales people, etc). HONEYSHED has you covered it’s like QVC for youngin’s…definitely nothing like grandma be watching. with fun and adorable hosts, they show you the coolest products from keyboards to panties to beauty supplies to kicks. it’s like having friends online telling you all the cool perks and features on that product you want (important info you won’t find online or in the stores). check it!!!

while i was browsing classic GWAR videos, it made me think back to my days in Albany. hanging out on Lark Street and going to hardcore shows at the QE2…oh, my days as a little straight-edged misfit. it was around the time i would venture out of the hood and learn about much different things that i had ever seen. while i wasn’t super into hardcore, i loved (and still love) the energy that came from it’s youth culture. i found some footage of great shows that took place back then at the legendary venue. RIP!
*it’s now called FUZE BOX, but i will always remember it as QE2.
*my homie ROB FUSCO’s old band, ONE KING DOWN (ALBANY HC BAND, RIP) + MASTER PLAN. ROB is now in MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD.
*my friend JOSH’s old band. i think i was at this show, hiding in the corner like usual. i’m into different things, but i wasn’t about to step in the wrong place and be pummeled by a windmill.
despite what it looks like, i rarely go to parties that are my own. that’s because, throwing parties are work and being at one is draining. also, i’m not into clubs that judge you. and when you dress like a man (ie: me) door men look confused. most clubs have a hard time understanding anything past BabyPhat on a girl. anyways…
CHUCK INGLISH was in town and we got to spend some funny times together!
*we found this at SOB’s, it was pretty funny.
*GOLD BAR…it’s a really nice golden venue. i had to visit a friends birthday party and took CHUCK along for the ride.
*everywhere i looked, all i saw were ciggys and acrylic nails. weird right?
*happy birthday CHRIS!
* we had jokes all night. the best is when you know famous people and you’re out somewhere and people don’t know who they are and they play them – which is fine. but, then they find out who they are and they son themselves by being over-nice.
*we ran into MIKEY and EMILIO…
*somehow i stepped in mud (yeah, in NYC…how is that possible) and didn’t remember until the next day. clearly, it was a fun night
while youtubing my favorite songs by TEARS FOR FEARS, i stumbled upon a treasure. have you ever watched a video and thought, “what the eff is this story about”? some geniuses created LITERAL VIDEO VERSIONS, where the song sings about what happens in the video. it’s hilarious and a must see!
