what is my new Facebook and Twitter pages!

I remember arriving at a studio session and pulling into the driveway and finding some producer type friends of mine outside cranking some sounds in the car. They had just installed c.d. players in their cars.  That was a long time ago, but I still remember how ridiculous I thought it was. I had never seen anything like that before.  Not in a car.  I remember, like it was yesterday, telling them that, “you guys have gone over board with this one, how can you drive and it not bump and scratch (as if it were a record)?”  Anyway, it was several months before I upgraded my car’s cassette player.  Now, fast forward to the popularity of cellular telephones being used by the masses.  “You mean they’re gonna charge me by the minute … there’s nobody I need to talk to that bad?.”  Once again, months went by.

The irony of it all is that I’ve always considered my self to be cutting edge, but as I reflect I’ve never been quick to embrace some of the most prolific technological advancements.  A couple of years back I recall my manager and publicist hitting me over the head with the fact that I needed to start a blog.  “…but what would I talk about … and why?”  Well, two years and almost 200 posts later, tada!  It’s funny how we all embrace advancements at our own speed.  I can look at my own inner circle and for example, Don C. aways has the latest PDA, the latest this and the latest that, his whole stunt game is to have stuff before anyone else.  In fact, Don C. was the person that bought Common an iPod about a year and a half ago because we all got tired of laughing at him for showing up at the studio with a Walkman disc player and a handful of loose cd’s.  I’m not sure if Common has a laptop, even YET!

So as we dive head first into the year 2010, I  would like to go on record and announce that, with the constant urging of my publicist, I am finally on Facebook and Twitter- two more things to consume my time and attention in the name of staying cutting edge.  Another thing to learn the nuisance of…I mean nuance of.  I was up till 3 a.m. trying to navigate these things and if you see me wandering around  looking lost…..  I can’t believe what I’ve gotten myself into.  The sick thing is that I can’t wait to get back to it.

What is Cello Tha Black Pearl!

What happens when Bob Marley meets Coldplay?  “Cello, Tha Black Pearl”, has layers galore!   Real soul singers are soul the moment they walk out of the door in the morning and any environment they inhabit becomes just that, soulful.  The texture of Cello’s voice is just bananas, I’m feeling like Smokey Robinson, next to it.  The only thing that I question about this cat is whether or not he has all his senses; this native Bahamian now resides in Detroit.  For Real, Cello?  Anyway, stay tuned for the first single, “See You In My Nightmares (the remix)” featureing Cello and  Tada, from my soon to be released mixtape, ” The World Famous Tony Williams: Finding Dakota Grey”.

What is Grammys Fashion Report:Planet Glamazonia Edition

The Grammys is an award show where artists are allowed to use fashion as a platform to show another side of their creativity. Unlike the nominees at the Emmys or the Oscars, The Grammy attendees don’t make up a sea of black tuxedos and frilly chiffon. Instead, the crowd is always filled with clothing created from unique shapes and colors across the spectrum. Even though the actual show was a little lack luster this year, the fashions of the night were the main focal point from the red carpet until the end of the production. Armani Prive was one of the popular designers worn throughout the night by beyonce (on the red carpet) andLady Ga Ga (red carpet and performance), and military and utilitarian influence seemed to dominate the stage (Jamie Foxx’s Military inspired blazer, Black Eyed Peas performance costumes, Beyonce’s Chain link dress, Beyonce’s leather Versace performance get up). Jennifer Hudson showed off her new slimmer, after-the-baby Bod in a waist cinching gown from the Victoria Beckham collection, while JLo accentuated her signature curves in a form fitting, asymmetrical gown by Versace (one of my favorites). Miley Cyrus kept her look young and funky with a banded gown by Herve Leger complete with pointed shoulder pads, lace inserts and a jungle green tie dye pattern, while the Young Money Crew kept it basic with fitted jeans, Screen printed tees and Nike Blazers. Overall, music’s favorites did a great job at displaying the array of fashions available during the current season, and it is evident that Haute Couture is beginning to take over the scene with its futuristic silhouettes. Don’t be surprised if you see renditions of Couture creations in a mass market store near you! For more information about the fashions seen at the Grammys tonight, visit http://www.WWD.com (that’s women’s wear daily folks) And as always, keep it Glamazonious!
