My friend AJ just picked up an Atari 2600 for me, with the paddle controllers & PAC MAN. Ahh, nostalgia! Now I owe him $20, but still.. YAY!
...and so it begins... my faith is tested, but I shall persevere. my life, health, finances & strength shall be restored. I thank Him now.

(Bitter:) I'm catching a COLD! THAT'S what's wrong with me today! (Sweet:) Maybe THIS is God's way of making me be still... Time 2 rest!
Today I must stand still. Only then can I hear the quiet voice amongst the chaos. Let us all be blessed...

Saving Detroit House

Today I feel compelled to take action -- some kind of action, to save the tired state of Detroit's House Music scene. I'm sure you've all heard the stories -- such great talent, so little progress. It seems that the "former" tastemakers are getting older, dying off, leaving the scene, or shifted the focus from the SCENE to THEMSELVES... The younger generation barely has a clue. I REFUSE to let this scene die. It has changed MY life, from the first moment I heard that 4/4 beat. I know I cannot be the only one.

Yes, Detroit is known for its Techno. But what people don't realize is that, alongside techno, we also grew up on House. We took elements of Chicago, New York, Germany, London, etc., and added our OWN soul to it -- and I don't care WHERE you're from, you can't deny that Detroit has undeniable SOUL...

I guess the main purpose of my email is to express my disappointment with the state of today's scene. I sent out a proverbial "call to action." What surprised me was a few responses that I've received from some of the "names" here in Detroit -- the most shocking was "Good Luck."

WHAT?! Good LUCK? We're becoming extinct like endangered species, and all you have to say is "Good Luck?" (I shake my head in shame...) But instead of simply griping about the problem, I'd like to be a part of the SOLUTION... I'm more than willing to meet and discuss ideas with ANYONE who is interested in keeping Detroit's House Scene alive -- together we can move mountains.

Hit me up, let's share ideas...

I say we do something to shake up the Electronic Music Scene, here in Detroit. If we do it TOGETHER, we can move mountains...
The millionaire mind is awake & working while everyone else is asleep... The first 2 arrive, & the LAST 2 leave. Here's 2 greater success!
Home after a lil' night out in Taylor Town... time 2 get some sleep before the sun comes 'round... <3

I'm on the air right now. I just feel like playing some tunes... If u wanna hang 4 a bit. u know where I'll be. <3 I saw my ex's profile. He & his husband look so happy. I'm happy 4 them. Still, it's hard not 2 wonder what it would be like if...
(can't stop singing...) "ooooh, ahhh!.. ooooh, ahhh!... only at Mattress Giant!" (ooooooh, ahhhh!)
What did u think about tonight's show? Personally, I've never felt as much love as I did tonight. I love & thank u ALL... See u next week!

Friday, August 21, 2009

In spite of it all, I must go on... and in 10 minutes, I am. , 7pm - 9pm EST. Come chat and listen... NEW TUNES!

I'm open to whatever the day brings, & so far it looks like... BREAKFAST in bed! (Y'all should see the card that came with it!) AWW, LOL!

Happy Birthday To Me...

My goals this year are to remember the lessons that I've learned from the book of life -- My Life...

Resolutions 8:19

  • I realize that I have the power to succeed, the courage to fight, the faith to sustain, the strength to persevere, and the will to survive.
  • I shall accept that I cannot be everything to everybody; but know that I AM everybody, to SOMEBODY…
  • I will take time to appreciate what I DO have, as opposed to focusing so much on what I DON’T have…
  • I realize that my body is my temple. It is sacred, not to be mistreated or abused…
  • I will realize that I AM worthy of happiness; I AM deserving of good things…
  • I will not be silent, in a world where true voices are seldom heard…
  • I will embrace my uniqueness, and vow to never blend in, for the sake of blending in…
  • I will not be ashamed of myself – no matter who that may be in comparison to others…
  • I understand that it is okay to go against the grain; to march to my own beat…
  • I am special. My spirit is important. I have a purpose.
Happy Birthday To Me... :-)
