Welcome to 2003 and my weekly thought. Where I have
a lot to say about pop culture and state my world
famous opinion on life.
The People of New York vs. cK - TAKE TWO!!
I have been really bad at updating this particular
page only because I have been so busy! But let me get
the most important story out of the way. I was in court
again on May 5th because the last time, they made me
reschedule. My partner who was arrested with me on February
28th, was let off. I was hoping for the same fate. Did
I get it? Well, yes. I did. After spending the entire
day in court, the judge found me innocent. So now since
I was wronged, the next step is to get back at the cops
who did this to me. No no.. this is not a threat. I
just have to take them to court, because I lost a job
and respect of the community for all the humiliation
I went through. So yes, cK is FREE!!!
at Webster Hall NYC!
I wasn't planning on going, but my friend, Johanna
called me up and really wanted to go out dancing. How
could I say no to a female?? So I got ready and we decided
to go to the world famous Webster Hall in New York City.
I was there once before in March of 2001 where I was
introduced to it by my cousin, Rosie. I always wanted
to go back. This time, I came as a resident, not a tourist!
Johanna also brought along her friend, Karla. Both of
these girls looked great and I was on a high walking
into the place with the both of them. We immediately
to the lower level but found it very humid and uncomfortable.
So we ventured up to the highest floor in search of
the latin room. I was not aware that there was one.
Out of the 6 rooms that the place had, I didn't ever
see that door that said "Latin" above it.
Probably because the last time I was very comfy in the
hip hop room and 80's room and didn't feel to explore
more at that time. If you have never been to the world
famous Webster Hall Nightclub, then expect the following
It's in New York City, so its MADDD Expensive. I paid
$30 to get in only because it was just minutes after
There are a lot of different sexual orientations there,
so don't feel awkward. Everyone came to dance and have
There's something for everyone. Whatever your music
taste is, you will find it here and be partying with
in Greenfield, Massachusetts!
So the following Monday after going to Webster
Hall, I decided to test out my
membership. Zipcar is pretty much cars provided for
people when they need them. Its like having your car
at any time you need it without paying the crazy cost
of actually owning a car. So the car that was lent to
me was a 2002 Volkswagon Beetle in Lime Green. Each
ZipCar has a name. Mine was named, Beetle Brandon. So
I picked it up and drove from NYC to Massachusetts.
The original plan was to drive up and meet my friend,
JP, and then we'd head out to Six
Flags in Springfield, MA. The only problem is that SixFlags
didn't switch to being open during the week yet. So
JP and I had to chill around Greenfield.
where does one go in a one horse town? Actually we went
to a lot of places. The first thing we did was meet
up with my good friend, Nayana, who I haven't seen in
like 3 years. We went to Applebee's where we had dinner.
After that, we went back to Nayana's place where her
fiancee, Mike was chillin and watched some of "Mr.
Personality" on Fox. It was my first time watching
it and it was very interesting. I think even more entertaining
when you are watching it with a group of friends.
and I left Nayana's place and drove to a Greenfield
landmark. Its called Poet's Seat Tower. A
place I haven't been to since 1999! The only difference
about this trip to the tower was that it was at night!
Ooooohhh!! Scary! You have a spectacular view during
the day, but at night, its just as cool! Mysterious
even. JP and I climbed to the top of the tower and chilled
out in the night breeze and watched the evening sky
littered with stars. Just gorgeous.
leaving the Tower, JP took me to a place called, Taylor's
on Main Street. Its a local bar where many of the town
people meet. I remember getting some drinks, one was
my first SKYY Vodka Martini, and the other was most
likely a White Russian. Just as we were about to order
some more, it was 1am and the bar was closing. CLOSING!?!?
At 1am!??!!? Well, that's how it is!
next day, JP and I drove out to Holyoake, Massachusetts
so we could go to the Holyoake Mall. We ended up spending
most of our time there at a place called "KAHUNAVILLE".
This place seems like a Chuck E. Cheese's for adults.
Mixed with a little bit of leftover animitronic animals
from the RAIN FOREST CAFE and voila! JP and I played
some of the most cheesiest games just for fun. But what
I will always remember was playing this rafting game.
I think its created by Konami. Well, I've always played
it and could never extend my time. But with JP, not
only did we qualify and extend our time to advance to
the next level, but we WON the game! AND got the highest
last part of the day was spent going to see Nayana at
her job in a restaurant off the Mohawk Trail. The place
was really nice and snazzy. Quiet and luckily for us
it wasn't busy. I just ordered a soup and some white
zinfadel wine to go with our appetizers. JP and I had
a great time and I was also moved when I received a
gift from Nayana before I left. Its this cute little
stuffed dog. I don't know if I'm doing to name it yet,
but I've been meaning to. Thanks Nayana!! And Thanks
to you to, JP for showing me a great time!
Extends Stay in NYC
Late last week, a tentative deal was made with
me and my employer to stick around for at least 8 more
months in New York. This includes training and certifications
with the IRS. To celebrate, my co-worker, Shelly decided
to take me out for some drinks. Needless to say, cK
got quite high. Shelly knew what to give me. We went
out to a little latin bar on 170th Street/Jerome in
the Bronx. Shelly got me 1 Corona and then 1 Tequila
shot. I protested about the Tequila but eventually gave
in and then consumed the Tequila. 2 more Coronas later,
I was very high. I did have fun though and look forward
to another little "after-work" party. Thanks,
