Anytime I’m doing something new, I get this sense of a feeling that makes me anxious. Whether it be DJing, Dressing, or eating even. So DJing at Magic for the first time at Truk n Yaki, was slightly nerve wrecking, but it’s a good thing. So you can imagine how I felt about eating my first burrito. Yes, I said it, my first burrito. Go on, laugh it up. Lol.
IMAG0396But honestly my first Truk N Yaki experience was an awesome one. Not only did I get to DJ for them at Magic, but they were the ones to give me my first burrito. I had the ribeye steak burrito, with brown rice. And now just the thought of it, i’m craving this as I write. Lol. The wrap was perfect, I’ve seen some people try to wrap a burrito and it always comes unraveled, or never even looks right, just looks unappetizing. But there’s I was looking like oooh, I’ve never had one of these before, this looks great. Lol. As I bit into it the steak was so tender, and the rice made to perfection. Not too sticky or runny. I was in food heaven.IMAG0411
You can find their food riding around Vegas usually, but if your craving them quicker, such as I am right now just go to www.truknyaki.com and they will tell you where they are stationed for the day! Check them out!

IMG_41591743066531 Getting to interview Farbe Technik was very fun. I came across them after walking around CES. I was very determined to get something for you all to read about! They were in the back, not too far from Gibson actually. But what attracted me was their cool race car they had out on display.IMG_41595788646372 So I went up to talk to them. They not only agreed to do an interview with us, but they also allowed us to DJ for them! That was like the best part. They were so nice and very cool. I loved talking with them. After learning about who they were, what they do, their gadgets, I was excited to work with them. Apart of their inventory is this very cool Bluetooth speaker. It also comes with an aux cord, but I love to use the Bluetooth. It makes me feel high tech. Lol. Perfect tool to use as a prank. Lol. Check out what else they have here!

I was just doing Radio on Ybs Station at the the time when I finally got my first official Dj Gig which was in Rumor Lounge! I was barely getting it all figured out, how in the bloody world I was going to do this lol…. It was Chris, the Manager at the time, who hired me! It was really also my very First Gig! From that my life sooo changed, so crazy like and fast paced. I left Ybs Radio to pursue a bigger adventure beside that fact the manager was a complete asshole. But then again arent we all at some time lol? Still, I went onward to do the djing thing as well create my very own radio station! I do hope to return to Rumor once more to spin, it would be even nicer to be a resident dj there, actually I think it would be fitting for me to able to to call that place my home. I do have to say though it was Ybs Radio that gave me the need to do my own thang!

Rumor-hotel-3

This was my first official gig spinning in Sin City Seriously Thats where it all started for me. It was a different feeling then just doing radio on air. At the time I was still sort of doing radio on YBS Radio. I had just quit due to arguing with management alot about getting more DJ’s on the air. They said no, It wasn’t that kind of station. So I left, and started DJing and doing my very own station.

I did it with two associates. One of which is a very close friend still today. G Smooth, who was part of my morning show Coffee Grounds on KLAV 12:30 AM. The other DJ was The Sonic Healer Sphinx. (Yup. That’s his DJ name.)He isn’t a bad DJ, I’ve heard worst. He is a Trance DJ and he’s pretty damn good at it. While we worked together I got the gig’s. He sort of diva, reasons why we barely DJ together, LOL. Rumors itself is a pretty cool spot.

 

Rumor Bar and Lounge has an excellent Happy Hour, Monday -Friday 4pm to 7pm . Which they have seven Tapptizers, wine, Sangria, and well drinks -6 dollar’s each. They’re bartenders known as Mixologist’s, serve classic cocktails, original concoctions, beer and wine. The bar serivce is also available in the restaurant, by the pool or in your suite. Rumor Boutique has had some well known talents from the industry work there from Chef Vic Vegas ( my friend) and well known Mixologist, Tom Kunick.

Some of you may know that Bally’s has been rebuilding on the outside. But what some of you do not know is that they were building a shopping center on the outside. Yeah that’s right I said were, because they are done! The Grand Bazaar Shops is open and looks great. With so many stores, some new and old all within that little shopping center, no wonder they were excited to get things going. They opened up just in time too, right before spring break and the summertime’s a coming.
1427605153787The Fuel Bar is a cool ass bar located in the back of the Grand Bazaar Shops. Actually it’s the only bar in the Grand Bazaar Shops. With their sleek clean and modern look, I don’t know how they plan to stay hidden. You can hear their music playing some of the hottest and newest EDM sounds a good walk away. And don’t worry about it being too hot outside, with their well-conditioned establishment, you’ll be as cool as your drink. Speaking of drinks, they have some of the coolest and award winning flare bartenders. They literally give you a show as they’re making you’re drinks! Which by the way, are very reasonably priced to be on the Las Vegas Strip might I add. And they’re all pretty cool people, including the owners.IMAG0707

They stay open later than the mall, so don’t let the closing stores fool you, they’re still in the back partying it up! Basically if you’re in the Bally’s area, stop on by, If you and your friends need a night out, stop on by, If you’re just having one of those days stop on by and let this awesome bar cheer you up, If you’re new to Vegas and don’t really know what places are happening, not only will you enjoy yourself but you’ll get insight to some of the best clubs in Vegas! I am glad to say that I had the honor of being their first DJ!

OMG, I was so nervous!!(LOL) I was running late an had already known that i was missing out on important information. Luckily my fiance, Mr. Black Tie was there right on time to save me. :) IMG_4258 Going into the press room, where the breakfast nook was held, he filled me in on those who spoke in the morning, and hints to some people who were still around. As we sat and talked in walked Mr. Dan Marx. Mr. Black Tie got a little quiet as we watched Mr. Marx walk around. He looked and said, “that man, you need to meet” That was all he needed to say. Lol. I figured anyone in the breakfast nook can help me so why not try and meet everyone! I was so nervous approaching him. But I did. After a small pep talk from Mr. Black Tie. I talked with him and he agreed to do an interview with me.
IMG_4254It was so cool just getting to talk to him. He really made the world of printing interesting for me. The way he talked about it, with passion and excitement. And to be the Vice President of S.G.I.A he is a very humble and nice guy. The thought of not only talking to but actually interviewing the Vice President was and still is a little terrifying. I’d love to take you into the exciting world of printing, through Dan Marx eyes.

Q:How did you get into the business of printing?
A: 23 years ago, I was working with works associates. And was introduced to the printing world through that. And have been interested in it since.

Q:What is your favorite form/part about technology?
A:The Printing! (laughs)

Q:Why is technology such a strong point today?
A:It stands out. (No matter what you do or what business you have you will use technology)

Q:What would yo say to the small companies looking to expand, or even to someone who wants to get into the printing world and possibly start their own printing business?
A:Come to a S.G.I.A.show. We have displays of all different types of materials, and styles. A lot of the merchandisers have a hands on showing of the deifferent styles of printing. Opportunities to grab new ideas from some of the most successful companies.

Q:What would you say to the small companies looking to expand for the long lasting?
A:Stay informed. You always want to be “in the know: of what’s happening. Especially in this field. New things come about all the time. And always be on the look for new opportunities to expand and grow.

I want to say thank you to SGIA and Dan Marx for allowing me to do the interview. Our team here would like to say thank you. We can’t express to you all how much of a good time we had, and how much we learned. I definitely look forward to coming back

The normal local merchants now cater to global fashion. Consumers fashion online have given any fashion designer from starters to well known designers. Thanks to the internet fashion has become a world class competition for all styles and culture, large or small.

In truth designers of all levels are stepping up their styles, from fabric to colors.

34895_140617319285414_3590809_n

Seriously a small designer can just be out of his or her house and go global. With the right website, marketing, and just even with Facebook.

34895_140617322618747_6846170_n

But if you add the Magic Convention opportunities are phenomenal.

1428096382925It was just three years ago when I was asked this important questions, “Why do you want to DJ down here in the arts district when your doing professional gigs on the Las Vegas strip and convention Center and out of the state work?” Those words and that question was asked by my once neighbor and still friend Ruzo Logic. That was before he began the start up sensation Guerilla Kage. That was such a long time ago for me, Lol. There was when I was the resident DJ for the Arts Factory. That was before the Arts Factory lost it’s glory. In those days no one imagined the fall of grace that pres 18bhappened to the Art factory It was on food net work, and Chef Benni was the chef to go to in the Arts Factory, and the Bar & Bistro was the place every artist wanted to show case their work. Their was something happening their every day and night. It was awesome times, no one saw the coming storm at all. I was just running my online radio station. It was at it’s last straw at that moment. The friendship within my crew was strong but I guess I should’ve noticed it breaking down. (But Ruzo did) Or was it because I was just finally noticing the user’s from the losers? Did it matter at this moment in my life? Things were falling apart for me. So I took a deep breathe and left the art district, though I so loved living and working down there. I began to reconstruct the insight to my surroundings, and began to rethink everything around me. And thus went totally forward without a thought about the Art District. Except for a few friends down there and supporters.
One, the freidship of Ruzo Logic. We kept in contact with each other. As I did so I began to see and hear which people in this small circled group1428103945938 were talking and spreakding rumors about me. It wasn’t surprising, but shocking and well hurtful. Yet I said nothing, but I did return back to the areawhich I had once called home. It wasn’t the same anymore, the people had changed, new places had emerged and places that I knew were gone or dying. So I thought I could be apart of the new area of the district.
It was a fight just to get into the Arts Factory with my new crew. Yet we did return. I had created a new DJing duo Jack of Spades. They got to spin at the Ars Fasctory New Years Eve. It was awesome!, yet not the same Arts FActory and Bar & bistro. I thought about my conversations with others who said they were frineds, such as Jenna from Jnna’s Red Room. Before she had her live streaming radio thingy she does, it was I who had given her the idea. It was I who told her what to do, and what to get for it. See at the time I had come to her about haing he own show on my radio station. She was going to do it, until she mentioned it on her Facebook, and then all hell broke loose. LOL. Within moments after that Jenna called me and said what did I do? I laughed and said what are you talking about? She said people started telling her bad things about me. “Well”, I said to her, ” Who?” She said she wasn’t going to tell me who they were. That’s fine to me. I said, Well, they had to be apart of my radio station once to even know me.” I told her I do a radio station people used me for what they wanted, no one gave me a dime to be on my radio station at that time. Such as Farris. This did would come high to my radio station. I would have to kick him out or tell him don’t do it again. Nothing but drama. The only one who didn’t give me drama was Vannae May. I gave her the chance to voice her talents on my radio station, even gave her my radio show called Coffee Grounds. She did one or two shows and then quit. I have no beef with her. But I did with anyone at the time who would come to my station high or drunk. I’m not into shit like that. I never was. I get it, The Art District people smoke weed. They cut loose, it just wasn’t my style what so ever. Well I wasn’t just going to beg her to become apart o f mys tation.Sad part is she never really told me anything or gave me reasons. Next thing I knew she was doing her live streaming show. I’m glad at least she is doing something!
1428186470189Now the cool part about Ruzo Logix he doesn’t let others defy him or who he wants to work tiwh. He believes in trying you out. He beliees in all stayles of art as well, not just in the world of painting, or drawings. I watched him cerate something for all ages and cultures. What other studio or gallery has dont that? I don’t know of any so far who invites black artists as well known music. Real music. Not just that stuff white socitery in into. DJing is my art, as wella s talk radio is my expression, which Ruzo Logic understnads. Which is why I was honored to be the first to DJ for the Guerilla Kage, for the artists as they work and those who admire them for their talent. Reason why I hope to Keep DJing for the Kage.
I love wha is happening downtown now, a culture is coming, action is becomming more important than rumors and gossip. So I guess I wanted to just put out somehing that maybe explain me and why I have returned to the Arts District. It was my way of giving back.

TrashedDJing at Trashed was a big moment for me. Not only was it my first paid gig, but it was my first time being the headliner DJ for an event. And it was only my first year. I was so excited. For those who do not know Trashed was an event for artists and designers using recycled items. It was very cool to see what people came up with. Doing this was a bit of a challenge at first, I had no idea what kind of music to play at a fashion event at first. I was still learning with club type music. Lol. But we got it. My then partner at the time (DoublePlay, together we were the Jack of Spades) did an awesome job, as well as the bands that were there. People loved the music, the artists were able to work with it, vendors were dancing, and customers were jamming. It was so much fun doing this event. I definitely learned a lot and look forward to doing more events like this.
