Merry Xmas!

Merry Xmas ! I hope Santa Clause (or St. Lay-a-way) brought you everything you wanted this year!

Here in America, Xmas is celebrated by turning your home into a bright and festive outhouse or service shed residing in the that Winter Wonderland Industrial Park that we call Santa's Workshop.

We usually coat our homes in plastic illuminated Nativity Scenes, flying - radioactive nosed mutated forest animals, and giant candy canes. The holiday is about the spreading good will toward all men by remembering the birth of the Baby Jesus (not to be confused with the Death of BIG Jesus despite the efforts of the Easter Bunny to hide him from the Romans) and his parents being victims of a housing and health care Crisis.

I went to this Spanish Caribbean party last night. Dominicans are fun. The best part of the night (Besides the Karaoke contest) was discovering this gem.

Enjoy.

Timmy Sunshine

Speaking of St. Jude's ..... My good buddy, Timmy (who does something really awesome or other for St. Jude. Like seriously, he's a living saint.), had a B-day not too long ago.

A little about Timmy: he's AWESOME. Not only is he my friend, but he's also a man sized ball of Sunshine with candy coated rays of happiness. If you were to ever meet him, you'd like him immediately.

So many cool people came to Paris Commune to hang and celebrate Timmy Sunshine's b-day. Drew was there..... Reynaldo was there.....

The other Timmy was there.... Roman and his boyfriend came thru..... This really hot chick in a gorgeous red coat was there.....

And of course, me and Bessie Anne (my camera)

St Jude

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. Founded by late entertainer Danny Thomas and based in Memphis, Tenn., St. Jude freely shares its discoveries with scientific and medical communities around the world. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family's inability to pay.

I covered a St. Jude Fundraiser not too long ago. It was VERY fun and I had a blast donating my services to the organization.

Check out the pics.

One Half "Muthafvkin" Nelson...


Is a hoot and a half. Seriously folks. A really cool character. We hung out here and talked all about nothing and totally everything. From Obama to MoMA. Totally cool. Totally fun. I'm so gonna have an eye out for OneHalfNelson the next time I'm rockin it out.

Do I need to say why? Like, on the real.... for really real. For REALLY real real. I'm so so serious right now. *grin*

Mr. Black to the Future III

Gee wizzz..... What a frikkin party! I had a blast. So it went like this. I started missing my nightlife family from Lotus NYC and was wondering, "where had all the fun gone?" Well, at the Paper Magazine Awards, Tubway was voted the BEST GAY PARTY for 2008.

I was like,..... uhm.... and wh
y am I not there?

So I went, and I had a Blast (with a capital "B"). First off, DJ Nita, Roze Black, DJ GANT.... Artiste...... oh-M-G.

And of course, my buddy - everysince the moment I met her- Lady Fagg. Everyone was turning it out, actin a fool and just being fun.

Yeah. FUN. I mean, what party have you been to in NYC (lately) where the promoters (and not just the crowd) was generally -- Fun?

Mostly, people want to be so important that the only vibe that they can give off is "over it" or " reat-2-go".

Not this crew....

I mean, they were groovin and movin and dancin to the beat....

Me like-y. Me Love-it..... Me can't wait to go again.

Holla!

And Before I forget.... Halloween08 NYC

Ah... Halloween. I went to this club - well, a lounge, call Secret. It's in Chelsea on 29th Street in an area we affectionately call "Club Row". Why? Cause every street has a , uhm, row of clubs on it. Anyway--- I am not really a "lounge" kind of guy. The Peoples Photographer usually leans toward clubs that give a bit of Sodom with a dash of Gomorrah with alot of flashing lights. You know, Studio 54 in the new Millennium. Feel me?

Well, Secret, is more of a SECTION in a club that I like. But I forgot that all I really need to have some fun is $, music, and a ton of happy people being happy. Secret had all of that.


Check out the people, their costumes, and those hella fresh (yes, "fresh is back in use") and those

custom wall papered walls.


I had fun! ant you tell from the pics? Drop me a comment or two and let me know what you think.

Thurgood Marshall College Fund Gala

OK, people said that Janet Jackson would be attending the Thurgood Marshall College Fund annual awards dinner at the Sheraton. I was all ready to Rock with Her, and get my Rhythm Nation on, but Janet couldn't make it because she was under the weather. Whatevs... Nia Long was there (lookin good and being a Lady), along with my good buddy Malik Yoba. Dude from Spawn (Michael Jai White) and them Tyler Perry movies that I like so much was there also. OH... AND Sharon Leal ( the chick from Dreamgirls and the new Bernie Mac / Samuel L. Jackson movie) came. She was classy classy classy.

The vibe was great and the night was right. OH YEAH>>.>>>>> April Woodard is the BOMB. I love to see her anytime I'm working a red carpet event (and ya boy is NOT a red Carpet photog. It takes alot of polite begging and and crispy $$$ for me to even consider it.). One of my Favorite actresses, Kellita Smith (you know, Bernie Macs wife on the show) was there to encourage the youngsters to stay in school and generally -- Obama. Ya feel me? I had fun. Cant you tell from the pics?



Where were You in '92?

1992 The Party is AWESOME.

The grapevine has been buzzing about this party for awhile about how cool/crunk/bout-it and generally hype it is.

After putting it out in the Universe that "I would like to check it out" and the Universe responding by introducing me (at the most random of times) to the 2promoters that run it, I decided to stop on by and see for myself what 1992 The Party was all about.

I was not disappointed.



I'd like to give a shout out to Oscar Wild and Vashtie Kola for extending the invite and showing me such a great time.




CAIN (if you're Able)

YO.... SO I kept hearing about how Cain had this big renovation and how crunk it was, and how if I was anybody I'd be there....

SO I went.

AND HAD A BLAST! OMG, i cant even begin to tell you how hot it was.... But due to the flowing vodka of Andre J (and the crazy pouring skills of my girl, Lady Fagg) I cant seem to remember enough of the evening to accurately describe it in words.

Good thing I had my camera :)

Holla!



Ok, Maybe I can say one or two things about it.

1. The Drummer was hot, and the dancers were Hotter.

2. Everything is better with a taste of Amanda.

Jaslene - She Deserved to WIN!

Yeah! -- After spending another Fashion week with Jaslene "The Peoples Champ" Gonzalez, I am convinced that she is one of the few winners from Americas Net Top Model that deserved to win.

She is Perfection.... And, Oh hellz yes, she is as friendly as they come. Never once didn she pop an attitude or diva fit backstage. She also had luv for everyone who had luv for her (especially su ginte Espanol!) I like this girl.


Check out some images of Jaslene doing her thing at the Jose Duran SS09 Fashion show in NYC.


She eats it by breathing (That's queens english - so if you don't know what that means, go find your local neighborhood tranny and ask for a translation :))





Jose Duran SS09

Jose Duran is like ---- Awesome. Seriously. His shows are always amazing and the clothes are a mix of the future and the romantic past. This years show had "amputee/replaced limb" theme. I can dig it. The one thing that keeps me consistently appreciative of Jose is that he allows artists to be themselves. Being able to just do my thing (with those exact instructions) is how I have come to establish myself as "that guy" when it comes to Fashion week/show photography. My style has grown from the encouragement of Jose and people just like him. Check out his work.




More of Jose and his Models Deluxe (the man knows how to pick a model).




I Luv Me Some Niecy Nash!


I really do! Niecy Nash is so frikkin funny, that it dont make no sense (yes, common language has been used.. so what?). I have died laughing at some of the roles she has played and the lines that come out of her mouth in every scene on "Reno 911"Check out the photos of her that I took at the B Michael Show.

The best part about seeing her in person is that she looked great, smelled great, and had a very kind and approachable demeanor. She didn't dissapoint this fan!

Check out some of the pics o Mrs. Nash



Quit Playin!


She is that Awesomeness.
