One mo’ day til KANYE!!

Today is the first day of Summerfest!  And guess who I get to see tomorrow?!  
Oh yesssss, Yeeeeeeeezy! 
I am so excited to see Mr. West.  The last Big Gig, I saw Usher for the second time and was blown away.  I’m truly awaiting Kanye’s turn to grace our amphitheater.

My Wishlist of Songs I hope he performs:
Through the Wire – I know, I know.  This song is old as ever but it’s a classic.
Good Morning – Just goes hard… think this is closely my second favorite.
Stronger – This could easily be a Summerfest crowd pleaser plus Daft Punk plain rocks.
His verse from H.A.M.   - *shrug*
I Wonder - This is my SUPER LONG SHOT song.   But it’s my favorite Kanye song, so if he performs it, I would totally cry.
All of the Lights - Great song.  Period.  I know that’s debatable amongst die-hard Kanye fans but it’s currently one of my Nadi G Get Amped pieces.  The classical intro is the ish.
Monster- His verse is freakin sweet and he rides the beat.
Power – I love Dwele… what can I say? LOL But I love how the song builds at the beginning.
Heartless - my only jam from 808s & Heartbreak L
Flashing Lights – Again, I love Dwele. J
Everything I Am – Probably another long shot, but I looooooooooove this song.
Homecoming - And yet another close and personal favorite.
Can’t Tell Me Nothing and/or Good Life – would probably be his wrap up for his Graduation set.
HONORABLE MENTION: Drunk and Hot Girls -- absolutely appropriate for Summerfest, don't you think?  
You probably can tell that I rank Graduation pretty high in my Kanye albums.  Oh welleth.
I hope to let you beautiful people know all about it!

Sex in two cities…

Have you  heard about Urban Dialog with Suzette?  And whyyyyyyy not? J
UD with SZ is a newcomer to the Milwaukee nightlife and it’s a refreshing   one at that.  A veteran in the game in Chicago, your awesome hostess Suzette brings an audience-focused talk show to life.  She does this at Chic Lounge every other Wednesday evening in Milwaukee, while the alternate Wednesdays are done in the Chi.
Now these discussions are NOT,  I repeat  NOT for the faint at heart.  The Box O’ Mystery houses the questions that audience members get to anonymously submit before the Dialog begins.  These questions run the whole gamut of the concerns and inquiries of the urban population.   You’ll hear  “who do you think is the frontrunner for the GOP?” one moment and   “is it cool to duck his sick on the first date?” the next. (I’ll wait while you get that)  We all get to speak out on healthcare, Obama, threesomes, orgasms, education, anal beads… You name it, the box gets it. Nothing is off limits.
Sometimes individuals do allow emotions to get the best of them and some might get on a soapbox with their respective opinion and it turns to your Facebook status gone mad… (which is why I can appreciate the boo coining the term ‘Facebook Live’ one night LOL)  But that is purely the beauty of it, a public forum that gets us talking about issues we tend to shun or not want to speak about openly OR a burning question you had comes to light that somebody else boldly asks.  The atmosphere is mature. It doesn’t turn into shouting matches, although debates can get heated.  Respect is key though and everyone returns to a peaceful state for the discussion to move along.  It’s better than Maury… less the paternity testing.
It’s a good time. Tell a friend and tell that friend to bring a friend.  We can all be friends.
Next UD with SZ is at Chic Lounge on JULY 6th!! THE DAY BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY!  #GOCANCER!

Now a party ain't a party!

So I’ve debated about whether or not to pen my thoughts about the party I went to at the Frontier Airlines Center… (Boooourns for that name change, Midwest) 
I decided to let my fingers flow on.
Now the All-White Affair presented by TTE was kind of a big deal.  They had the Milwaukee Brewers and Jammin 98.3behind them.  Add that with the celebration of Father’s Day at $20 bucks a pop.  WINNING.
I felt all flushed with feva approaching the site because I was geeked.  I could hear the base emanating from the State St. skywalk.  (I had to walk far, people!)  I saw people in all white on Wisconsin Ave and 4th Street hanging around outside and it was a beautiful Milwaukee night.
Now I get in there about 11:45ish and go upstairs and there are two separate entrances. One for regular folk like myself and then the glamourized VIP entrance… that looked JUST like the regular entrance.  LOL Anyway, if I’m paying VIP money, I want men with big feather fans wafting a sweet breeze my way and hors d'oeuvres and champagne given to me at first sight. But that’s just me. J
I walk in and see all these beautiful black people, and some not so cute ones.  LOL I check the scene and walk around.  The space was so big… In all honesty, after doing my *move through the crowd, let me hug the folks I know* bit, I posted up to survey the entire shindig.  VIP was jumping a little bit but DJ 30 Seconds was on something else.  I only call him DJ 30 Seconds because he would play a banger and cut that mess before it hit 30 seconds. LOL  I think that would explain why the feel IMO was why this was a “lookin’ @$$ party.” Mostly everyone came dressed, except for the man my girl Star pointed out was wearing BLUE jeans.  Not blue jeans, but jeans that were the color BLUE! LMAO…
At any rate, these type of shindigs have the potential of being off the chain. Everybody comes out and is ready to get it in, however if everything doesn’t mesh well, the DJ, the space is too big or intimidating... people tend to end up standing around or copping a seat and just looking at each other.
I still send KUDOS to the men who put on the event.  It takes a LOT, I can’t say it enough… A WHOLE LOT to put on events of this caliber and all in all, it was a good look.  EYE just did not leave  100% party satisfied.  I was at 80. LOL
Next we’ll talk about sex…

OH MY GOD! You're NEVER home!

Okay, so that's not exactly true... Me NEVER being home. I mean really, where would I shower and sleep? *smirk*

But hearing that consistently since my novice socialite days is a pretty sweet badge that I wear proudly.  How else would I be able to be out and about, expose myself and my people to the ins and outs of the Mil-town.

I remember I used to be so offended by that crap.  "Girl, you're everywhere!" "Dude, you're always out..." because I thought people must be smoking that good stuff if they thought I don't do ANYTHING with my life besides go out.  No one knows about the side that sits at home watching my favorite DVDs on repeat (40 Year Old Virgin and Tropic Thunder are even better the 102nd time around) or who likes to sit at the crib and write, listen to my music cranked up, or go just lay up by my aunt's when I need to recharge.

Then I said to myself, "Self, you have a rather active online persona and people DO see you out and about!" My socialite side shines through the endless posts and pics on FB, Twitter and Foursquare (which gets the official Nadi G CRACKIN' Award for Best App).  I indeed promote that piece of me and must have sold it pretty damn well.  I love getting those texts or calls from my friends "What's poppin tonight in the Mil?!" or my people that come into town "What's to do in YOUR city?"  It's feels pretty good to know I'm a good source of social scene knowledge.  This IS my city! :D

I don't have any legal dependents just yet and I'm a busy body, so I get out... alot.  IT'S WHAT I DO. Period.  Try it sometime! You'll love it! :) Plus who wants to be Mayor of their own house...uhhh you live there, don't you? (Foursquare reference for those trying to catch up)

Okay, still thinking on that post about the White Party...

3's UP...

Back at it.

You probably thought this blog was dead and gone.  I'm coming back folks... I promise.

I'm making a vow to do posts twice a week.  If I don't, uhhhh, I'll give you the shirt off my back.

Wait. Maybe not the shirt I'm wearing now but the one I wore yesterday.  Yeah. That's it.

I really want to do a post about that White Party I went to this weekend.  I don't know if yall ready though.
