OK below are the pics you have been waiting for. Now mind you, at this stage of the party. People were gettin their drink on with the free drinks and people's inhibitions were gone!

Therre's Stress Free Friday's Mark Anthony Jones showin the crowd how to do the I-am-drunk- from-Crown Royal-dance on the floor!!

Herre's another shot of it in case you couldnt believe it for the first time!!! CLASSIC!

EVENT-VIEWZ. I peeped out two events last Saturday. first, I went to Subzero Sushi bar and restuarant to meet Stress Free Fridays (tryin to find a parking space was a mofo!) Mark Anthony Jones and his friends for a cocktail. I was invited by Jones to attend the 40 b-day party of Vera Daniel, who is a director at Saint Louis University. I met up with them about 8 p.m. as we smoozed, talkD about old school things (eg. tracing words in a tracing book in grade school) and had a drink. I got the directions to the party. It was going to go down at a rooftop apartment on Skinker that overlooks the Forest Park communtiy. So around 9, we went our separate ways to our cars to get to the party.
So when I got therre, therre was a secuity guy(dressed in street clothes) at the door when I walked toward the elevator. just when I got in the elevator, the security guy hollared out, "Look up. The party is at RT") I was like huh?? RT stood for Rooftop. DOH! So, I hit Rooftop button and saw that therre were 20 or so floors up to the party. This was going to be interesting.
So when the doors open, there were about a 100 or so people dressed in white were dancing and schmoozing. I saw Mark and told him to introduce me to the b-day girl, Vera. She was nice and welcolmed me (I felt like a stranger at a family reunion who tried to blend in as someone's cuzzin. )
With this being a private party of sorts. I will do the "what's done at the party stays at the party. But I can say, that the two running themes throughout the party was 1)brothas wanting to wear my vintage brown, hip length vest and 2)Guys asking women the Tootise Roll pop question, 'How many licks does it take to get to the center?"
Of course therre was dancing (Cupid shuffle experts and novices), cake, gifts, hordes of food and a self serve bartending area (all you can drink.) and the highlight Mark Anthony Jones getting on the floor to do his floor dance shake. It was too hilarious!
I was overwhelmed of the two patios that overlooked the Forest Park area (It must have been 300 feet up). I took a few snaps, but I must say vertigo was definitely coming over me but I played it off as though it didnt bother me. Nothin but money would live this high up from err body!
We were having so much fun, that therre was a note that was given to security to give to the apartment owner from people below us that we had to curb the loud noise.
(You knwo what was really goin on---right!)
I stayed til about 11ish when I had to check out Laughs on the Landing new Saturday event, the Lounge.
As I went to the Landing to try and find a parking space, I thought was gonna get a space in front of Laughs on the Landing as I always do...not this go round--all thanks to the crazy black lady park attendant who secures the parking space in front of the venue. So as I was driving up to the entrance to get a ticket to park, the entrance was blocked with a small orange cone. So, I waited a bit cause I know that when cars start driving out, the cone is taken up. Right before I drove up, the parking attendant (and I will cal her that for now), had taken it up to let a car go in.
So, when it was time for me to drive up to park, she placed the cone back on the entrance area. So I waited for some cars to exit. Two cars exited (maybe two minutes apart) and she didnt pick up the cone for me to enter. OK. I blew my horn. Then, she did a "cutting her neck" sign to let me know she wasnt letting me in. So I waited. I wasnt going anywhere. I blew my horn again. She started iggn me. So, I had to get "ignut" to get results (Aint that what Madea said on one Tyler Perry plays? LOL)
So, I got out of my car, knocked on the attendant's booth. She opened the window and I said, very angrily, "I saw two cars just come out of here. Why arent you letting me in? I have to be at an event in a few minutes!' She bucked her eyes through her four eyed glasses and said, "Five cars have to exit before I can let you in." What? I got pissed and said. "You mean to tell me, I have to wait for three more fuckin cars to exit for me to enter and therre are two empty parking spaces from the two cars that just left out?" She said, "Thats right, that's the policy." Then I shouted, "Whos fuckin policy?" It was the owner of the aprking lot's policy and she said, "Unless you want to pay 250 dollars to park." I just looked at this----attendant and said. "You gotta be kidding, right?" Then she said, "Apparently you didnt hear me."
I just paused and looked at her. At that moment, I wanted to say, "Oh I heard you. I just wish I didnt have to see you."LOL. It wasnt that serious, so I walked back to my car and drove to a parking lot area across from the Drunken Fish. CLASSIC.
So when I got to the Laughs on the landing. It was a little bare, but I figured that peoplw were still gettin their laugh on with comedian Shang who was performing that nite. DJ Nappy Needles was on the 1s and 2s and I struck up a convo with the two sisters from, the Grace organization at the front table collecting money who was putting this event on for their charity.
So around midnite the show let out and one of the patrons was Cheryl Gunnell (Cheryl the Girl) who I remember back in days when The Flow was going on (picture Got Lyrics and cafe Soul mixed together in the mid 1990s) when I used to do poetry. She struck up a convo about the days of doin poetry at The Flow (and how she lost weight these days) and how she is doing her visual art thing (mainly masks). I also discovered that she was therre to support Shang, who is her No. 1 fan here in the STL (She had me take a snap of her and Shang with her cam and she kissed him on the jaw and thats all I am sayin on that matter. LOL) She was hoping to put up some fo her artwork on the walls of the Laughs and I told her I would get her in contact with the manager Maurice Bishop on that.
Meanwhile, The Lounge was OK. Not too many people were there and the crowd was dressed pretty street casual (I was the only was dressed up formal/casual). I spent most of the time outside of the Laughs talking to the security guy and smelling the BBQ ers BBQing next door as the smoke was Five-alarm strong.
I left out about 12:30 and took Cheryl home.

Herre are some MA"AT-BITZ that happened near the Big bend area of Clayton on two different days. Last Sunday, when I was leaving the gym in Clayton, I stopped at the intesection of Forsyth and Skinker in the right lane that veers in front of a pedesirain walkway. Well, I stopped to far out into the Big Bend traffic going south, so I slowly backed up so I wouldnt get hit and softly backed back to a car that was in teh spot I was suppsoe dto be at when you stop before the pedesitian walk. I lookd over to my right thinking I may have hit the traffic light pole, but it was the front bumper of the other car. SHIT, I said to myself. So I got out to see if therre was any damage. Luckily it wasnt. The sista who who was driving got out of the car (it lookD like she just got her twist freshly twisted). She had to have been about in her 50s said ,"Did you see my car?" I said YES, but I didnt want to get hit from the incoming traffic. It was my fault and and she said. 'Just be sure you careful." I felt as though I was gettin chastised by my mother. I was just glad it wasnt bad damage. Beside some minor whiplash, err thing was cool. What would you have done? Would you have backe dup , too?


Last Monday, as I was gettin gas at the gas station on South Big bend pass Clayton Rd. I went in to get some snacks (Cheezeits and pork skins) and pay for the gas. I paid for the gas, got in my car and drove south to get to Clayton Road to get on highway 64. I opend up the pork skins and ate a few (they were as stale as day old beer!) As I turned to Clayton road, I reached over in my fanny pack on my waist to grab my glasses and didnt see them. I looked around below on the car floor and didnt see them. Then it dawned on me that I probably dropped them at the gas station (I had my glasses in my fanny pack) and I was half way down the street. So, I made an illegal U turn toward Big bend and turned left back to the gas station that was a couple minutes away. I had to wait til the left turn light came on to make a left back to the station. So as the left light came on and I turned, I drove immediately to the station (going 45 in a 30) I parked my car next to the pump where I was last, got out and looked around. No glasses. I walked in the store area of the station and asked the sales guy (who looked like the old guy dancing in the Six Falgs commercials) if he saw some glasses. He said YES. He had thrown the frames in the trash and got them out and gave them to me. He then said that one of the lenses came out and he threw it in the trash outside. So, there I was, going outside and goin in the trash like a homeless man trying to find the lens. I was picking out tree branches, paper, and God knows what else that was in that trash. The sales guy came out and dumped the trash on the curb to help me find the lens. I found it and thanked the guy for helping me find it. I helped him put the trash back into the trash can and went on my way. But my thing is , shouldnt he have put the glasses in a safe place than the trash can just in case I had come back?

But I digress.....

Yep, the singer was born in 1973 and his father is the legendary Senegalese drummer Mor Thiam (Akon's whole name is Aliaune Damala Bouga Time Puru Nacka Lu Lu Lu Badara Akon Thiam) who came to East St. Louis in 1968 to work with the late great dancer Katherine Dunham (who also resided in East St. Louis from '68 to 2005).......St. Louis actress Stephanie Williams from "Young and the Restless" fame (who also dated comedian Robert Townshend for a spell) is now living in the STL with her husband, a powerful attorney in the Lou..............For you blaxploitation buffs out therre, actress Jeannie Bell of the 1975 flick "TNT Jackson" is also from St. Louis. Yep. She was as popular as Pam Grier and Tamara "Cleoptara Jones" Dobson in regards to black movie starlets back in the 70s (she was a Playmate centerfold as well). I was persuing YOUTUBE and saw a campy clip of her popular grindhouse flick. If you wanna peep it out go to
