Today Michael Jackson would've been 52 years old. Although it's been a little over a year, thinking about his passing still closes up my throat. A musical genius, a remarkable dancer, a phenomenal entertainer and most of all The GREATEST entertainer HANDS DOWN. He was an inspiration to me and a doorway for every little girl and boy who ever wanted to be a STAR.
I have slowly come to the realization that one of my many passions is admiring architecture. I find myself marveling at the buildings in Manhattan and absentmindedly staring at the buildings for longer than normal.
This summer i found myself eating at lot's of different places. Thai, Indian, Traditional etc.... Sidenote: and i wondered why i didn't lose as much weight as i wanted... DAMN IT! I digress...
Anywho, i went to this AMAZING Thai food place that is tucked away downtown Brooklyn. The food there was good but the fried ice cream.... BANGING! (In "ebonics" that means amazing, wonderful, delicious etc. when used in context.)
They lit the rasberry sauce on fire and i was so excited!
I tried to get it while the flame was still going, but by the time the happiness subsided the flame was almost out lol.
Breaking into it for the first time, i felt like a sinner getting a chance to walk into heaven :-)
And by the time i got to the end, i was happier than a crooked politician!
That place was amazing! If you ever try Thai food, save room for dessert, you will be glad you did!
I've been contemplating this topic for a while... Although I'm more of a whimsically free spirit, at least I like to think so, I do have mind that is constantly twirling with thoughts.
It's this idea of fashion and what's "in" and what's "not". Many people have this simplistically complex idea of what is fashionable and what is not. Recently, thanks to the hip hop culture, the idea of labels have been commercialized and whored into us “common folk” lives.
