My Secret Passion Has Been Fulfilled


Ha! Okay so almost every female has a “story” they like to watch. My absolute favorite was Passions. I was so upset when the show left NBC and went to some random DirectTV station. Well you know its a dream come true the final episode aired this week and if you are familiar with soap opera’s you know the plots and twists and turns never end! It literally takes a soap opera an entire week to get through one day in the plot of the show.

Anyway I was ecstatic to watch the final episode of Passions. Ethan finally learns the truth about Gwen and she and her mother goes to jail. Teresa and Ethan finally get married! Tabitha gets baptised and is no longer a witch and Kay and Andora or revealed as good witches. Fancy is pregnant with Luis’ child and well everything is finally solved. Its the perfect ending, the ending I have been waiting for!

The Knitting Factory


I stopped by the Knitting Factory last week to see my friend P. DizZzY perform. The line up also included Kris Kasanova (with his producer Clyde), Fresh Daily, Denim, and Outtasight. I didn’t stay for the whole show but the part I did see I enjoyed. I finally got to see Dizzzy perform because as much as I am familiar with his music I have never seen him do his thing on stage. And I got introduced to some new acts including Kris Kasanova and Denim. Kasanova definitely commanded my attention with his charismatic approach and the whole set up of his performance. He even did a little acting and sat down to get real with us about his struggles. And I definitely loved Denim’s singing style. I was familiar with one of her songs from Vlad’s mixtape- New Elevator Music but outside of that I was not familiar with her. I definitely became a fan after that show.

Obama Fashion Fund Raiser


In honor of Michelle Obama who as of recent has been recognized by the fashion world for her style a group of fashionistas hosted an event– a fashion swap– all to raise money for the Obama campaign. My fabulous mentor Erika Kendrick was one of the hosts. You also got the opportunity to take a professional photo. An organization was there compiling photos of Obama supporters to be published in a book. I was also interviewed by Eirka on camera, as soon as I get that footage I will post it for you all to see. It was a great event. We even had the pleasure of seeing Kersten Stevens perform. She is an extremely talented violinist who actually opened for Barack Obama at a conference recently. I have a video of her performance. Expand this post to view the video and see more photos.

Vlad in the NY Daily News

My homie Vlad aka Hatian V was featured in the Daily News.  He’s a comedian, actor, photographer, man he does everything!  He is an Entertainer.  Check out the story behind the YouTube Haitian V videos and check out his blog http://entertainmentsfuture.blogspot.com/ 

Haitian V creator touches nerve with video skits

Thousands have viewed Brooklyn resident Vladimir Calixte’s social commentary comedy skits on YouTube.

Vladimir Barthelemow Thelonious Rasputin Slocumb Calixte 3rd is Haitian V.
No joke.
If the latter name doesn’t register, you’re not among the thousands of YouTube users who eagerly await the latest video missive from Haitian V, the patois-speaking, 45-year-old Haitian hustler that Brooklyn resident and hilarious urban Everyman Calixte created.
- There’s Haitian V trapping a sexual predator, ambushing the man with a camera “Cops”-style after the man shows up at an apartment carrying two bottles of liquor for a date with a 14-year-old girl he met online.
“It’s not in my budget to chase him,” V says as the man flees the apartment.
- There he is, wearing his trademark fedora and sitting in front of a Haitian flag, riffing in mostly two-minute-long videos about everything from Eliot Spitzer, Britney Spears, rappers Jay-Z and Kanye West to the questionable fashion sense of men who wear their pants too low (“In Haiti, they would beat you with a stick!”).
