I’m a slow-slacker when it comes to music videos, like six months later-late, but I heard there was a new kid cudi video for day&nite, and I youtubed.  Instead I found this..  and fell in love, these damn British imports are grrrrreat:

what do you think?

now i’m REALLY gonna watch this kid cudi video

*UPDATE*

I just saw the video, actually I saw the original UK version first which was super thumbs down, he even said:

“I felt that the video made me look like a doofus,”

then I watched the newer and improved video:

much better!  this one used cartoon images and layered them on top of the live footage, and it made me think of this crrrazy invite that Diesel put out last year. 

YOU MUST WATCH THIS VIDEO.. now!

you’re re-playing it aren’t you?!?

*jillicious*

sunday is also fun-day!

Our clocks moved forward one hour on Sunday morning, I sacrificed that hour of sleep for an hour of sunshine!  Who am I kidding it was a Sunday so I REAALLY slept in (2pm).  I got a call from my first love Arlene and we caught up with a little stroll down Queen Street, then I got a call from my favourite brampton natives Royale&Chauntel inviting me for dinner, we decided to go for wings.  Now when you go for wings on a Sunday, Monday or Tuesday, there is really only ONE place to go, and that’s WHEATSHEAF at King & Bathurst (yes with the moose outside) half priced wings baby!  

 From there we headed to go see Times Neue Roman (TNR) perform at Sneaky Dee’s, this was my first time seeing them perform and I was suuuuper impressed.  TNR is Robert Bolton aka Arowbe accompanied by Alexander Punzalan Junior, and Dj Mensa on the turntables.  Now if you’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting Arowbe he’s an amazing fella, loved by many:

(I found this written in the ladies bathroom at Revival… true story!)

but he always came across as a little “shy” to me; don’t let him fool you –  BOY IS NOT SHY!  He has crazy charisma on the stage and makes the girls scream (yes me included.. lol).  Briefly “Times Neue Roman perform nintendo-punk-rap-music with the general tone and attitude of teenage immortality.”

As the host said “We see arial and helvetica used so often, let’s give it up for Times Neue Roman..” haha!

Here’s a clip of one of their crazy performances during last year’s nuit blanche:

 

 

This Sunday has definitely been one of the “best fun-days ever!!’  Thanks guys… 

support your local artists!!

Can I be your Sunday?

I absolutely love Sundays. It’s my day of rest…or the day I like to kick back and chill either alone, with the fam or the selected few I call friends.

I don’t know about you, but one of the greatest feelings and my fave past times…has got to be sleeping in on a Sunday.

Watch this next video…(close relevance being sleep??) whatever, I thought it was pretty cool 😀

Joy

a jillicious surprise!

More love and thank yous to all the amaaazing people in my life!

This weekend I celebrated my birthday with my nearest and dearest,

yes, in addition to 2GIRLS1CAKE.

It started with my *free* lunch at Casey’s, for those of you that don’t know you get a free meal on your birthday at all Casey’s restaurants!  Dope! 

An amazing and much needed dinner reunion with my fabulous five:

Then like every Thursday, we went over to Octopus Lounge for Social Experiment.  Here’s where I get a little honest, I was really hoping to end off my birthday with a bit of a *BANG* at Social Experiment, but the men of the team did not seem so open to spoiling me with another party (I know harsh right?)  So needless to say, I was a somewhat unenthused to head over there.  Little did I know that they had a BIG surprise up their sleeves!  They planned a special guest DJ to throwdown a set for me!! YAAAAY!  So special thanks to DJ P-PLUS for agreeing to be my surprise, and of course Cheryl, Taurean and Dustin for organising this for me, and also putting up with my diva-ish behaviour 😛 

Here are a few pics from that night:
