Another Obsession Confession: Guilty Pleasure Music,everybody has some. My love for music is kind of ridiculous in a lot of ways. I don’t even listen to the lyrics half the time, if the lyrics are catchy then even better. I listen to music for the pure enjoyment of tuning out the world and just drifting into relaxation.
I’ve mentioned several times earlier that I love almost every genre of music. I love everything from Deep House, Garage, Dubstep, Trap, Soul, Jazz, Funk(long story behind that one)some country, and more. You name the genre, I’m sure there’s a song that I’ve liked it from that genre.
The creative juices start to flow and I feel a rebirth. I feel alive. I feel inspired. This guilty pleasure is my SoundCloud. The music that I love to get the party started.
One Minor Flaw:
As Nene Leakes would say, this mix of music on this particular site could be deemed as “Ghetto” or “Hood”, there’s everything from Nicki MInaj, Kystylis, Todd Terje, and much more. So it’s a hodge podge, none of it makes sense but then again neither does my iTunes library……..
Disclaimer: I love to dance. I was twerkin’ before it became a phenomenon! I love it so much that Thursday after work, I twerked in front of The Taj while waiting for the light to change to Khia “My Neck My Back”
So I was at the bank today making a deposit and I walked into the Gap in Wellesley Square. However, I caught this girl on the bench out in front and her conversation seemed really intense. Maybe it was cause I had just woke up but I caught this part made me giggle….she said “She was doing it all wrong. She wasn’t even moving her body. She acts likes she can twerk but can’t. People are like Miley Cyrus can twerk but she can’t” I wish I were joking but this really is what she said so I turned my head and smiled. She got blushed.
Twerkin‘– A dance in which movements consist of shaking hips, bounce booty up and down in a gyration causing it to bounce or wobble. Basically make your booty as sexualized as possible! To the right beat, I admit this is actually quite fun. Upside down against the wall. You can be as innovative as you want…..
Yiken- Is the creative Oakland area version of Twerkin! They make it more advanced because the partner your dancing with is behind you and what happens is they throw the rhythm off while you twerk. Making it impossible for you to catch the beat!
Honestly though, YIKEN is like beyond sexualized though.It really pushes the envelope. If you look at some of the YouTube videos, it’s like “Oh My God, I hope they’re being safe!” Makes you wonder where the parents are when they are recording this stuff because lord knows my mother would have known what I was trying to do before I pressed record!
Like I stated earlier, I love to dance but have missed every opportunity to dance my ass off(no pun intended) like I like to. Nobody seems to want to go dancing. The last time I remember going, we went “Controversy” at Machine in Boston. It was amazing. I entered the Twerk Contest in my studded wedge sneakers in skin-tight silver jeans! WERQ BETCH! There was a video of me somewhere in the contest.I couldn’t find the one on my Facebook from the contest but I found this one instead…..
This summer though I need to bring the YIKEN Movement to Boston. We would totally benefit from it…..
If somebody told me that I would be sitting in a Dodge Caravan while eating McDonald’s listening to Quiet Storm radio with a guy named Ramon driving me from Boston to Framingham while going from May 5 to May 6. I would have said “No, you’re crazy!!”
Did I mention that I was crying hysterically while eating a Quarter Pounder, 4 piece nuggets, large and medium fry with a sweet tea? Well, I was!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANDRAE!!!!
I feel as though since turning 25, every birthday has been nothing but a failure of epic proportions. However, i can look back it at and laugh but it’s still annoying. It all started with a trip that was supposed to be but didn’t happen. Then when the trip was going to work out, It ended up being for the better that I didn’t go(Did I learn responsibility?). How I regret taking the responsible road!
My birthday fell on an a Monday which sucked. Totally fucktarded. I spent it with a friend of mine, who totally dropped the meal that he cooked for me. He seemed to have forgotten it was my birthday. So what did I end up eating? Sweet potato fries and JP Licks Ice Cream. I did however the next day at work get a really good and delicious Peanut Butter Ganache or something another from my coworkers….thanks Ini. I did TREAT MYSELF to a good french toast breakfast at Francesca’s.
Fast Forward to the weekend. I knew that nobody could go out because it was Mother’s Day. That was fine. The next weekend was CONTROVERSY. You know the night that caused me to enter the Twerk Contest. I made an invite on Facebook.
I was absolutely positively estastic. I went to the local store that carries tons of fake hair cause sometimes a brotha just wants to put some weave in his hairline.Excitement through my veins!!! Let’s talk about the epic proportion of fail that this was. ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS TWERK!!!! I actually was practicing in my living room how to do get on my forearms and do it upside down. I practiced when I could. Saturday comes around and do you think we went. NOPE! 5 people responded. Don’t act like you didn’t see the Facebook invite. Thankfully, I have some friends that are nice enough to actually call and say that they couldn’t go. Maybe I’m being a baby about it. Well I am because turning 21 for the 6th time sucks. I feel old. I look old(just kidding….Thanks Botox…not I’m kidding I don’t look old….apparently biege don’t crack). I wanted to see my friends for more than just a coffee at Starbucks or something.
However, it wasn’t a complete bust.Went to work the next day and while I should have went home and did homework,Tyler convinced me to go see Pornochio.A Gold Dust Orphans play, a local theatre company based out of Boston. I like their plays so it wasn’t like a complete twist of the arms. It was hysterical. It’s their sexualized version of Pinocchio……and the girl who played Pinnochio was so flipping cute!!
RECAP OF BIRTHDAY MONTH
Didn’t go to Tampa or Miami but went to NYC for a night
Didn’t go dancing for my birthday but saw a play instead
Crying in a cab at Midnight eating McDonald’s because I couldn’t get into the club because I wasn’t wearing a collared shirt…Well Mr.Bouncer tell me where will I find such shirt at 11:50pm
Got into an argument on Mother’s Day and the day after because I wasn’t feeling special at home for my birthday
Didn’t do dinner with friends but Bianca bought me lunch from one of my favorite spots
I learned responsibility and that SUCKED
This was my birthday month and it sucked…..*fingers crossed* 28 is gonna be SUPER!!!
“And last week I saw Cameron Diaz at Fred Segal, and I talked her out of buying this truly heinous Angora sweater. Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed” Elle Woods (Legally Blonde)
I watching Legally Blonde, absolutely love the movie. It’s a riot, she’s hilarious. Until this recent time in watching it, did I realize something important and how it pertained to my love life.
All of my friends know about the “Love of My Life”. It’s been an ongoing battle of back and forth. I’ve begun to write-off the prospect of actually getting that relationship back. I don’t want think that I should be strung along like a little but puppet. Tonight I realized that I’ll never be good enough in his eyes. Good enough to string a long…..it’s a good realization to come to though and maybe with that realization I can move on to….
On another lighter note, I went out with a few co-workers over the weekend. Went to the waterfront in Boston to start the night, Whiskey Priest where we were hit on by a few married men. Then to the South End and ended up at Machine Nightclub. In which every 3rd Saturday of the month, they have night called Controversy. Music was great, one of the DJ’s played one of my favorite songs of the moment “Higher Ground” by TNGHT. The music is a mix of everything great that I love dancing to at the moment. I even ended up on the stage several times and entered their “Twerk Contest”….I didn’t win but there’s always next month……cause i will be upside down against the wall!!!!!!!!!!!
My co-workers and I started a challenge at work. To see who can do 100 push-ups in 10 minutes by the end of May. What should be the prize be? I’m going to win. I’m too competitive not to win. Each week we increase the amount. Yesterday, I did 21. Next week, I’m going to do 30. I think I have this in the bag……
