You Gotta Love Africa

Wassup Homies! This past week, Dex was battling a funky tooth, the flu, and the failing American healthcare system. Because of these things, I'm a little too downtrodden to be the visual orgasm (or is it more like a kiss?) that you are used to. But have no fear, Jacob is here! Jacob is my homie is Gaborne, Botswana. He was kind enough to send me some pics of him Lounging with his crew. check him and them out and soak in some of that good "African-ness".

Honky Tonk Abstract

This weekend, my girl, Lisa (you remember Lisa, right?), invited me to hear her sing at this event in Red Hook. It was cool. It was fun. It was experimental. These hip hop, soul, R&B, rock, and eclectic folk musicians all got together to celebrate everything country. I know it sounds strange, but it was GREAT. Seriously, the artists were doing all original music. My fav thing about the entire show is the BROADNESS of thought required to envision something like that for NYC.

Can Dex broaden his horizons? You know I like clean, pretty pictures. My goal is to rock the fashion/ commercial world with my clean, pretty pictures. But I can do more than just clean and pretty pictures.

Here I am doing the Abstract/ artsy thing. WITH NO PHOTOSHOP. Dig in, bitches.

P.S. Remember, I'm an artist, and I'm sensitive about my shyt. ;)


Ritchie is my friend. He's super smart and just as extraordinary as me. This weekend, he invited me over to have dinner and Watch some DVD's. This is great, because 2 of my favorite things to do in the whole world are eat home cooked food (Cup o' Noodles doesnt count) and watch DVD's with friends.

Luv Ritchie. Enjoy Ritchie.

A Lovely Day

I'd like to send a special shout out to all my Bloggers and Bloggettes out there. If you look to the right of this post you'll notice something, that I dont have any of my special people listed in the "links" section. Well, its time to change that. So to all my people out there who want to be seen and linked, hit me up in the comments section of this post and drop your blogg addy and a brief description. Also, if you are both Crunk + Disorderly, make sure that you let me know. I just wanna make sure that we are kept close knitt (get it Saun? Close KNITT *giggles*).


Oh yeah. Dex wants YOU to put him to work. I notice that alot of people are both curious hungry for a piece of NYC. With the cost of airfare and hotels now days, its kinda hard for the average Joe (or Jolinda) to make it here. Let me be your eyes.

DexStarG will go on walks for you. Document every turn, and even do a photo essay on the destination location.

To start off, holla at me with a destination or an activity that you hear us NY'ers do and I'll go shoot it. Curious about Blo
omingdales? Sacks 5th? The VIllage? Dramatic Cunts? Puerto Ricans? I dunno... anything from Sex and the City? Let me know and I’ll work it out to get you some views.

Don’t know where to begin? Use
THIS MAP of the NYC transit system to start yaself off.

BDAY Wishes.

Its my BDay, bitches. Yes, surprise! A nigga like me was actually born, not grown or hatched. In other news, I've decised to be completely clueless for my Bday. No thinking or analyzing. No, I'm jsut gonna coast and pretend like people actually get you gifts on your B-day. Hell, while I'm at it, I might as well pretend that when they give you the gift, its actually something that you want or can use ( I have yet to recieve a bday gift that I either wanted or could use... and I'm 29).

So here I am and this is my request. Neat, huh? *SQUEEE*
So, because I have no shame, Here is my Amazon Wishlist. (if you cant pull it up search via my email: know..because I don't have real-life friends to buy me things. [insert puppy-dog eyes here]. In other, other news... Britney Spears had another future crackhead bouncing baby boy at 2am this morning. According to my sources, she named him Yodaddy S'fugginloser. I think it's French. Or something.

Edited to ad: In this day of i.this and e.that, not all gifts need be physical. I used to love this song and show when I was a kid (big surprise). to this day, when I'm walking through a club, I hum it, sorta as a personal mantra. "Dex is my name, no one else is the same...."

Before I get ready to leave the house, you might catch me mumbling "It's Showtime, Synergy" ...

yeah.. I am truly outrageous

My *heart* Homegirl Kim (Upstate) sent me the BEST b-day gift ever.

Mike is my friend. He's a Midwest guy making it in the city singin, dancin, actin, and of course.... waiting tables. We hang out from time to time, and he's cool. One thing I do appreciate about Mike is that he is a man of his word. He says what he means and he means what he says. He’s a stand up guy... and every other cliche' of that ilk. Basically, he's good peoples.

Here are some pics of Mike just doing the "YT" thing... :)

Instant Messaging Fun w/ DEX

Ok, I hate instant messages. If you IM me and actually get a response, then know I must love you like I love Orange Soda. I feel like they are spontanious conversations that go nowhere. Everytime I hear that "dunk" sound on my SK3, I feel like Ive been ambushed by:

a) a 12year old hopped up on Sugar, Starbucks, and Beyonce


B) A Heroine addict who's jsut remembered that ... wait... uhm ... pause....


But sometimes they can be fun. below is a Message between me and one of my Caucasian friends. We bumped into each other after not seeing one another for about a year. We exchanged emails and promised to keep in touch. So far so good :)

West Indian Day Madness!

Oh my Gosh. The West Indian Day parade snuck up on me again. I guess with all the partying I did this summer, its only fair that my favorite event came in kind of quietly (for me) and luckily for me, it was held around the corner from my crib.

For those that don’t know, the West Indian Day Parade in BK is a direct off shoot of Carnival.
I like it because it’s so much like Mardi Gras, but different. Yet, the Same. For the people who live outside of NYC or just aren’t too familiar with the how we roll, this celebration is major. It’s an opportunity of the residents of Brooklyn (and NYC) to come together and celebrate all things Caribbean, all things Carnival, and all things joyous. Below are some of the pics I took on my way from my house, to the carnival, as well as 2 or 3 shots I took on my way to run a quick errand that morning.

FYI, my hood one of the hoods that everybody has to pass by when walking to the parade (they close down the streets to car traffic) so a lot of these pics are of people either going to or coming from the festivities. Oh yeah, I realize that alot of people who visit my blog do so from out of state. Some of you guys havent been to NYC and probably arent too familiar with any part of it that wasnt shownon either Seinfeld or Sex and the City. So..... Let Dexstarg be your eye. From now on, I'll try to shoot my slideshows for the "tourists".

That means, take a chance and click on some of the pics in the slide show. Some of the crowd shots are high resolution (really really big), so when you click on them, you can actually SEE the crowd, the streets, the clothes, the NYC of it.
