Staying on the Grind

Author: Tafari, Friday, December 7th, 2007 at 5:33 AM
The post title is inspired by Erykah Badu's song “The Grind” from her "World Wide Underground" album (2003).
Every day is a struggle how to hustle some doe
If you was raised in the hood well then you already know
It be days it be good but mostly money be slow
Have you ever been hungry before
"gotta get these dollars man"

Steady on the grind
Steady on the grind
Cause I got to make it happen
For one last to make ya know me
Steady on the grind
Steady on the grind
Cause i got to make it happen
Ain't nobody gone do it for me...

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I joined the gym to get rid of my man tits. Well, weeks later, I am starting to notice results. Although the results are not major, they are still results.

When I started weeks ago I could not even do 10 minutes on the elliptical machine; now I am able to do 1 hour without a problem, I like getting all sweaty doing it! Depending on how fast I go, I can do anywhere from 3.5 to 5 miles and usually burn up to 500+ calories. Needless to say, I’m happy that I made this progress. Coupled with my ass moving on the elliptical, I have stepped up my weight lifting and added an additional set per machine to my regimen.

All this exercise has helped my energy levels, as I have noticed that I am not felling like I used to previously. I also noticed that my metabolism is faster which helps burn calories and I am using the bathroom like crazy (TMI).

In addition to my exercise, I am working very hard to watch what I eat and my meal portions. All of the fruits and veggies have my doing some major farting but luckily, by the time I get to the gym, the farting has calmed done and not nearly as bad where as when I started there.

With all this said, I am happy to say that I have lost 6 solid pounds so far and I think some inches too. A few shirts and pairs of pants are definitely fitting a bit better. Suit Suzy even felt on my booty the other day and she was like oh, fells tighter. That made me smile.

  • About Last Night XIII: Urban Organic Music Festival (UPDATED)

    Author: Tafari, Monday, November 19th, 2007 at 7:02 PM
    Saturday (11/17/07) I was assigned to photograph the 6th Urban Organic Music Festival at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD). When I heard about the event 2 weeks ago I got excited a) because Amp Fiddler was hosting and b) because Roy Ayers was the featured act (one of my favorite jazz musicians). The Urban Organic Music Festival features great music workshops for those wanting to break into the business, a concert that has an eclectic mix of hot new R&B/Neo-soul (what's really new with soul) acts from across the country and always tops it off with a cherry by having a music heavyweight on the bill like my new friend Roy Ayers. Bottom line is this event is a must do for any serious music fan; it attracted online R&B maven Honey Soul, who I kicked it with briefly. My evening at the MOCAD started around 8pm and like most events, the coordinators were happy to see me, gave me my press kit and let me in to do my thing. So now I am up in the spot and the crowd was already thick, luckily I was able to get in some quick photos of many of the artist before they went on (talk about busy!). As the hours went past and the who's who of Detroit showed up, I grew exhausted longing for a 15-minute nap (I was vending Quench Essentials yesterday in 2 locations from 9am-730pm) but that was not going to happen. Between taking performance photos and kicking it with friends, I got occasional adrenaline rushes that got me to 10pm when Roy Ayers entered the building. Here is shot of Anthony David and it is one of my favorites from the evening. Bygbaby.com Mindspill Now that Roy was in the spot, backstage took on a different tone. Everyone was excited and enjoyed the vibe that this living legend was giving off. After things slowed down, I was able to kick it one on one with Roy (guess who was ultra excited). This was a moment that I had been hoping for and I had my questions ready to go. First I asked Roy, what was on his mind when he wrote "Kwajilori" (one of my absolute favorite songs). When I finished asking the questions, he chuckled and said that he did not write it. His bass player at the time wrote the song and when he heard it the 1st time, he knew that it had to be recorded. I told him that Kwajilori also makes me smile and feel good about life and he said that was the point; then we both laughed. Secondly, I said "Roy, I love "Brand New Feeling because it gets me in the mood", we again both laughed. I then said, excuse my French and no disrespect intended at all but.......... when the vocalist (Merry Clayton) sings, it sounds like she is fucking, she sounds so very sensual: Roy, what was going on during that time. He was like man if you only knew! He said that "she sang like she knew how to do it" and again, more laughing. Before we parted ways, I let him know one more time how his work influences me and always gets me singing and feeling great. Usually at events I do not get photographs of myself because I trust no one with my camera and last night was no exception. So I was like, Roy, lets take a picture. He was like how, no one is around then I said, I got this and did my thing. He was like, man you are BAD! Minutes later he was on stage. Although Roy’s set was 4 songs long, it lasted for over an hour and he set it off!!! He started with "We Live in Brooklyn," which sent the large crowd of fans out of control with excitement. He then smoothly transitioned to "Searching" and the crowd started singing. Once he neared the end of “Searching,” he asked the crowd what they wanted to hear then an unanimous thunder of the word SUNSHINE flew back at Roy, seconds later it was on and poppin’. This version of "Everybody Loves The Sunshine" lasted about 30 minutes and included improv duets with most of the artists that performed that evening including Amp Fiddler, Monica Blair, YahZarah aKa Purple St. James, Melissa Young, Alison Crockett, and Profit (a new Detroit based rapper, who really got the crown hype). I mean this performance was an orgasm for the ear! The evening wrapped with a dance favorite "Runaway". I think most of the crowd including me was up shaking their thang and singing the hook (doo be doo, run, run, run - doo be doo, run, run, run - doo be doo, run, run, run). After the concert was over, Amp Fiddler announced the after party location and people started to file out. I said fuck that, I need to sit down before I passed the fuck out, eat & take my ass home. I made it home about 2am totally drained of energy but glowing thinking about the time that I spent with one of my idols. Bygbaby.com Mindspill Oh I forgot to mention that Roy asked for my card and I excitedly gave it to him. I hope he hits me up, how cool would that be???
    ::::::::::::::::::::::UPDATE::::::::::::::::::::::
    Yesterday, I was contacted by Drake Phifer, the founder of Urban Organic because he stumbled across this post & loved the photos. We did a little business & he will be forwarding many of my photos to Fusicology & Detroit's Ambassador magazine. Guess whose geeked???

    Vending Bounce Back

    Author: Tafari, Sunday, June 3rd, 2007 at 6:50 PM

    Yesterday Suite Suzy & I were vendors at the Ann Arbor 12th African American Downtown Festival for the 1st time.

    Although I am a little burned out on vending based on last weeks experience, I mustered up a little strength to pull off this one day event.

    So we make it down town Ann Arbor, I pay my booth fee & start to set up my tent etc when a Senegalese man that I have seen in Detroit stops to talk to me.  As the conversation began he explained that he only spoke a little English (French is his 1st language).

    My new African friend asked me where I was from & I told him Detroit by way of Alabama.  He then said, I thought you were African because of my clothes, then he asks me if I was an African American to which I responded no. I told him I was an African who just happened to be an American.  He had a puzzled after I said that.  Seconds later one of his partners called his name to leave & he said see you later, still looking confused.

    Anyway the rest of the day was great and Quench really made it happen.  This was only our second even in Ann Arbor & Suite Suzy & I definitely see different buying patterns between Black in Ann Arbor and Detroit.

    In Detroit people seem to be very cautions with how they spend & saw things like my money ain’t right now etc where in Ann Arbor, they seem to buy readily & buy lots.  Suite Suzy thinks that it is all based on socio-economics.  Well I am not sure but whatever the case is, this event was soooooo successful that we signed up for the Ann Arbor Juneteenth Celebration in 2 weeks.  After this, vending will have to come to a standstill until the fall hits unless there is something really big happening.

    Before I go, I ran into some good friends & mentors at the festival &they shared with me that they went to the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History for a genealogy seminar.  Part of the seminar discussed DNA testing to get specific African Ancestry results.  Come to find out, they were doing DNA testing like on the spot, so they both bit the bullet & got tested.  They were so excited & I was so excited for them.

    My birthday gift to myself is a paternal & maternal DNA test.  I plan on getting tested in August so I can open the results for my birthday (Sept 19).

    Thoughts From The Long Weekend

    Author: Tafari, Wednesday, May 30th, 2007 at 4:47 AM
    In my last post I mentioned that I vending at the Detroit Black Expo all weekend but what I did not mention is that it was the almost the worst weekend ever.

    A few things made it bad starting with the fact that I was sick as hell with a sore as throat, swollen ear drums & a headache to top it all off, not to mention that I blew chunks Friday & Sunday night. Being sick could not have come at a worse time.

    Secondly, it was bad because since I was working, I could not go to the Detroit Electronic Music Festival. Sad thing is, even if I was not working the Black Expo, I was too sick to enjoy the DEMF; so sad!

    Third, that damn Black Expo, needs to be renamed to the Wack Expo! Suite Suzy & I were excited about this event because we thought it would be a big money maker but it was far from it.

    The expected attendance was supposedly 30k but it seemed more like 3k for the entire weekend. Although we had a decent income from this past weekend, I don’t think I would do it again next year. The hours were too long, the booth fee was too high & to be honest, after I saw the itinerary I was like, there is nothing here that would make me leave the comfort of my home or a BBQ to come this Expo.

    Luckily I was able to share my booth with one of my vending buddy Trudi from Deaf Options. This was our first time working together and we kept each other sane. Trudi sales hand beaded jewelry made by hearing impaired individuals who live at the home were she works. She also had some fine pieces from Beads & Moore.

    Well all of the fun ended with Trudi Sunday evening because she was like fuck this event & she bounced leaving me in boredom Monday. Her sales were not going well enough to make it worth the while to come back Monday & I wished I was in the position to do the same. Since the booth was reserved in my name, if I would have left, I would have been charged like 500 bucks for breaking down early. So since I ain’t fenna pay nobody that kinda money, I just kept my black ass there.

    Before the event ended yesterday, all of the vendors were given a feedback survey & I was happy because I had a lot of shit to say. A young lady came to pick it up before I left & she asked me about my experience & like always, I kept it real. After I finished bitching, she had the most disappointed look on her face & really couldn’t say anything other than, “well, you have a safe trip home & thanks for participating”

    Life of a vendor can be a bitch and events are so hit or miss it’s a shame. I’m happy that we have a webstore to keep things moving in the right direction. Hopefully soon, we will have some of our products in local stores so vending will become a thing of the past!

    The one big thing that saved my the weekend from being totally fucked up was the Moodymann 70’s Soul Skating party @ the Northland roller rink. This skating party was the hottest DEMF after part of the weekend & while I was sick as hell, I was still going.

    Before you ask; no I did not skate! My ankle is still healing & now I am having issues with my knee so I was not about to take my chances & fuck myself up even more. I had a good time just watching & kicking it with my superficial party friends (Detroit house crowd (I mean this in a good way)).

    Below are a few shots from the weekend.

    PS: I realize this post is boring & somewhat pointless but I needed to get it out.
