Friday, October 9, 2009 Home With Me.
I must announce the official movement of this blog|site. My new site address can be found at http://onlyrealthANgs.com . I thank my many dope subscribers for keeping up with me through Blogger and rummaging around my mind. OnlyRealThangs will continue in the suzi.am tradition...but with higher usability, functionality, and daily posting.
On my new site is also collections of releases I've been a part of, and media-related clips, and new songs shared weekly. Honestly, it will go to paint a better picture of my vision and passion for.....everything real.......
I could explain on and on forevr, but it'd be easier for you to log on. Much love.

Monday, September 7, 2009 Progression.
So easily a month has slipped through digital hands. So much is happening and changing, along with this site. A re-design is in the works, with more sounds, images, and analogue...and will launch sooner than later.

Friday, August 7, 2009 grace jones x keith haring.
Feeling nostalgic. Grace is an inspiration, so is Keith; as two individuals who chose art over everything and have made a deep imprint in how people perceive who can do it.
For Grace's video I'm Not Perfect [But I'm Perfect For You] Keith painted Grace's body, as well as a huge piece of fabric she later dons as a skirt. Vicious. The song has ill, thoughtful references to race, class, and re-defining standards of beauty in our world. Both Grace and Keith have worked to do just that.
Cameo from Andy Warhol. Beats out all shiny rims videos.
L.A. show is in 3 days. Staying inspired. Come through world.

Monday, August 3, 2009 Score.
Fresh Daily Videoshoot = success.
Digging for vintage gear in NYC = fail.
Coming up on some TIMELESS publications while there = win.
In addition to the various random things I collect, archival mags and publications are my favorite. I have editions of EBONY from '67 with pictures of King & Coretta in Jamaica. Diahann Carroll on the cover as Julia...Elizabeth Taylor when on husband #3. Gear is cool, but printed words and images are priceless.
New to the collection:Alek Wek for i-D © 1998
Program for MTV Video Music ∆wards © 1993
Tommy Boy Records ad. Priceless.
Best Rap Video
Naughty by Nature -Hip Hop Hooray
Dr. Dre - Nothing But A "G" Thing
Digable Planets- Rebirth of Slick
Arrested Development- People Everyday
wow. check out that diversity.
The last score, Spring 2009 issue of Viral Status Magazine [site]. A new print publication created by emerging NYC designer, Castro. VS has an ill concept, clean design, and good content...the core of any leading mag. Bonus points, they featured me in a section... I had no idea. Could it be we're making history one print at a time? Online is cool, but print lives forevr. Vive la mag.

Saturday, August 1, 2009 not about face.
Always clever. Always on-point. Continuously innovating as the world sleeps. Remaining ever-so true. Mos Def 'Casa Bey'
A flip of Bando Black Rio's 'Casa Forte'
Although I really love the version done by Elis Regina.
Nice inspiration as I head up to NYC today to shoot Fresh Daily's video for 'Love Breakdown' off his forth-coming album Gorgeous Killer..., in stores 08.18. Brooklyn will always remain the mecca of artists representing true emcee culture. Good to see it is still strong.

Thursday, July 30, 2009 kenny fresh for Grown Kids.
"Being a kid is easy. Being a Grown Kid is on some next level ish.
The Grown Kids are a rag tag crew of DJing, producing, beat making, bike riding, youth mentoring, in the cut laying individuals that are all making things happen in the 'Sco on their own. When they combine like Voltron, it's curtains for any wanna-be's. They all put in steady work to throw events, put out records, and bring new sounds to the Bay and beyond. Each member of GKR brings years of radio experience to the table, and they feel right at home behind the boards producing high quality broadcasts."
Kenny Fresh (http://freshselects.net) was featured on the newest mix for download by Grown Kids Radio, one of the illest radio collectives out of San Francisco. Of course he, along with the Grown Kids Radio crew, posted some of the nastiest music you're still sleeping on. Including a tune from yours truly.
It's dope. It's free [for a limited time only]. Go download NOW.
