Am pretty sure that is Spike Lee’s half brother Arnold Lee with the ‘fro. Oh and sure enough the band leader just confirmed that.

Update: Sorry the picture’s so fuzzy. I am taking these mobile pics with my phone and I guess the lens needs cleaning?

My gleeful contributions to the much welcome #unfollowdiddy trend that seems to have swept Twitter overnight:

Can’t wait for #unfollow50cent, #unfollowDr.Dre and while we’re at it #unfollowgangstarappers!

Waiting for a Cora Dance performance to start. The performance tonight was an excerpt of a dance recital called “Prey”. Breathtaking. Followed by a Q&A with the choreographer whose name I’ll post later.

So I set out to Move with Grace for lunch yoga at Noon according to the online schedule but instead I merely pushed some dust around. No Grace. No Yoga. Til 1?

Fort Greene dweller Common wasn’t on the scene at the time of the Hanson Place shooting this week but his publicist wanted to let you know that he almost got shot. Should the hundreds of people who walked past the crime scene issue press releases too? Of course not. They neither crave street cred nor have an album to sell!

Shameless and tacky to say the least:

People dancing to ethereal sounds, handmade natural fiber clothing, Mom’s and Pop’s cosmetics line. (All pictured below.)
Otherwise, loads and loads of jewelry. A couple of t-shirt makers.
I think this has a little more flair than Dance Africa but I can’t put my finger on why.

This party’s non-jeans wearing crowd brings the FiveSpot’s potential to life every 4th Saturday of the month. If you’re nostalgic of the days when people dressed up to go dancing in coordinated pairs, you’ll probably enjoy it. I attended the very first one two months ago. Resident DJ’s Mr Robinson and DJ Honky spin rare northern soul in between live performances by 60s singers. This Saturday Young Jessie from the Coasters is expected. Tickets are $7 on presale at myspace.com/digdeepernyc or $10 at the door.
