Jeremy Forson

“There are so many hammocks to catch you if you fall, so many laws to keep you from experience. All these cities I have been in the last few weeks make me fully understand the cozy, stifling state in which most people pass through life. I don’t want to pass through life like a smooth plane ride. All you do is get to breathe and copulate and finally die. I don’t want to go with the smooth skin and the calm brow. I hope I end up a blithering idiot cursing the sun – hallucinating, screaming, giving obscene and inane lectures on street corners and public parks. People will walk by and say, “Look at that drooling idiot. What a basket case.” I will turn and say to them “It is you who are the basket case. For every moment you hated your job, cursed your wife and sold yourself to a dream that you didn’t even conceive. For the times your soul screamed yes and you said no. For all of that. For your self-torture, I see the glowing eyes of the sun! The air talks to me! I am at all times!” And maybe, the passers by will drop a coin into my cup.”
~Henry Rollins

My original post today took a turn…It has been confirmed that Frankie Knuckles passed away in Chicago yesterday. Ouch. He was a beautiful soul. Frankie, find your way out there and continue to make beautiful music. Now you can make music with the angels.

Scarlett Etienne for Thinx Underwear

It’s easy to take things for granted. We have electricity, running water and access to resources that meet our basic needs plus some.

As a woman, one of the things that I have taken for granted is the access to tampons. Yeahhh…I feel some of your faces scrunching up and some of the men at this point are going to drop off and skip down to the photos, but if you can stay with me for another few short paragraphs, this information is important to share. You could really benefit a female in an underdeveloped country and help her have a better chance at life. In addition, you could gift a lovely pair of black lace knickers for someone you care about or have a sexy pair of your own!

As uncomfortable as it is to discuss periods/menstrual cycles on this platform, think about how embarrassing it is for girls in underdeveloped countries, who have no access to any type of sanitary napkins, who face this reality every day. Women bleed. Once a month. None of us like dealing with it. But when this happens, say in Uganda, the only choice a female has is to stay home. She doesn’t have the option to go to the store and make that embarrassing purchase at the register. Do the math- this means she is missing a week of education or a week of work every single month. This should not be! We need more confident, educated and successful women as well as men.

Fortunately, there are three amazing women that recognized this issue and are doing something about it. Meet Miki Agrawal, Antonia Dunbar and Radha Agrawal (pictured below). I had the joy of meeting Miki a few weeks ago through Scarlett and Sam. Miki is also the author of best-seller “Do Cool Sh*t.” She’s an incredibly inspiring social entrepreneur and if you see her around NYC, or if you’re in Williamsburg, pop by her restaurant WILD and say hello- she is GREAT FUN. As you can see, this woman is full of goodness. But we can help too!


For each pair of Thinx leak-resistant undies you purchase, you’re sending 7 pairs of AFRIpads (low-cost, reusable, washable cloth sanitary pads) to a girl in need.  This means you’re helping one of the 67 million girls in Africa and other parts of the world who are without basic sanitary needs. By doing this, these women won’t be bound to their homes during that “time of the month.” They are free to keep on keepin’ on. YAY!

Everything you need to know about how Thinx panties work is on their site:

And now I’m so pleased to share with you, my friend, Miss Scarlett Etienne, who has devoted all of her ASSets to Thinx as a model, spokesperson, shareholder and ambassador! She’s a woman of many talents and also holds the title of DJ, songwriter, singer, dancer, pianist, fashionista, adventurer, magic-maker and muse. Check out her deep, sexy, uplifting mix ))))) ~ ~ ~ ))))) power vibes)))))

183 – “The moon never beams, without bringing me dreams”

I’m having trouble deciding on a track so I’ve included a few today- old and new. I wanted to give you a more uplifting post but this dreary New York Winter has it’s icy fingers around the city in a choke hold and it just refuses to dieeee. But in this dark inclement nebulous I’ve had plenty of time for introspection and regardless of the weather, I feel rather happy and peaceful and I dare say I got to know myself better these past several months. Tonight, I have my beer, warm socks and my giant cotton candy pink fuzzy sweater. I AM COMPLETELY COMFORTABLE. It’s the small things. Anyway, happy Titty Tuesday. I hope your day is oddly special, in a good way. xx

“Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss; but every once in a while, you find someone who’s iridescent, and once you do, nothing will ever compare.”



Annabel Lee
by Edgar Allan Poe

It was many and many a year ago,
   In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
   By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought

   Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
   In this kingdom by the sea,
But we loved with a love that was more than love—
   I and my Annabel Lee—
With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven

   Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
   In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
   My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsmen came
   And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre

   In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in Heaven,
   Went envying her and me—
Yes!—that was the reason (as all men know,
   In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,

   Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
   Of those who were older than we—
   Of many far wiser than we—
And neither the angels in Heaven above
   Nor the demons down under the sea
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul

   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;

For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes
   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
   Of my darling—my darling—my life and my bride,
   In her sepulchre there by the sea—
   In her tomb by the sounding sea.

182 – Time & Space

Albert Einstein:

“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”

Mike Monday – When The Rain Falls

Dave DK – Woolloomooloo

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
~Albert Einstein
