Half Moon on the Island

Just standing in the area to get in you can tell its just a different vibe. A different vibe from the scenery and two different vibes from the people. The first vibe was my initial thought which was cool and wavy. I like that vibe. Its just the kinda vibe i needed in my life seeing how i survived a major cold 2 days before. The other vibe was irritation, confusion and slightly pissed *because of the heat* . 20170708_142421That second vibe came from the festival starting late. 1 hour and 45 minutes late to be exact! Granted it rained the night before so that would be the reason why…but festival goers dont care about that man. They just wanna get the hell in. Once we were let in, we wandered. We wandered around because there was no music playing. They continued with the original schedule which was the Big Quite Meditation. I get that they wanted to stay with the schedule but it was already a hour and change late opening … Just Get  Right To The Music!!! *Forgive me for I was grouchy by now*20170708_142644 But shout out to Essentia Water! They keep me hydrated for free all day and the behind the booth was major eye candy. 20170708_144356By now all stages are playing music and everything is going as planned. I hung out in the beach area for a bit with Kitsuné present La Plage listening to the tunes and soaking up some much needed sun but the really place to be during the was the Solaar Stage. 20170708_152657I, of course made my was over to it which was a geometric shaped dome with a gigantic disco ball hanging from the center. Just that alone would get your attention but the music pulled you in all the way. There wasn’t a time it wasn’t packed in & outside of the dome.20170708_152932 I eventually went on the hunt for food and found Loosie Rouge. I honestly didnt realize how much i missed grilled corn on the cob til i had theirs. In between dancing my way back and forth between stages i got a chance to check out a few performances such as the Tops,  Abra and Connan Mockasin. 20170708_185816As I scooted my was to the front of the stage to wait for Kelela to perform  Dj Larry Heard took the stage and he was just what I needed. He was joined by Mister White who voice was just melodic. The music they played felt like an awakening; just free and magical. They had everyone dancing. 20170708_194749People came from backstage to dance on the side stage to witness all the greatness that was happening. By now im hype. I danced through their whole entire set and im ready for Kelela to take the stage. 20170708_222900She was just as awesome as I remember from the first I seen her perform. This time I knew the words to the songs unlike the last time. We even got to hear her new single from her upcoming album so we got a real treat. 20170708_223538Unfortunately i didnt stay fot Vic Mensa because from my stage hopping I lost my IPhone and had to go find it. Once I eventually got it back I headed home. Overall the Full Moon Festival waa nice. I was a very very laid back fest which was something i wasn’t expecting. I may return next year depending on who the performers are.

Until then I got 2 festivals left of the summer so stay tuned and as per usual check out the Instagram @in_attendance & Snapchat In attendance for all the in real time fun!

Porn Stars Need Love Too!

Beside the fact that 2016 kinda sucked in the sense of politics and the death of many great celebraties, my personal life was freaking awesome.So I figured I’d start the New Year with my last awesome adventure….

I ventured into foreign territory *New Jersey* for Exxxotica 2016. My inner pervert has been so suppressed for a bit so I was extremely excited to go. Walking in I had no clue what to expect and the first thing I saw was ass.
Cheeks & Boobs Everywhere!!!! Web cam girls were the first thing you saw.

Upon going futher  into the rabbit whole you seen porn stars to the left and right, booths with with sex toys and lots of people. Hundreds of people both man and woman came out to see their virtual fornication lovers.
I even noticed a few faces I’ve seen in my home town and a coworker lol.  Sadly because I only know of porn my friends share with me, I don’t really know any porn star but there were some faces I recognized from what was shared. One of my hightlight was the dungon. There was suspension, whips, chains, feathers, spin wheels and my new favorite flogging.

I was a little shy at first but reading Fifty Shades of Grey mad me very curious. I enjoy it very much. I wanted to donit again but the line was to long *sad face*. There was also a panels, sex workshops, a sexy fashion show, BBW twerk contest and some other random goodies. 

I really had a great time and everyone who watched my snapchat have a very good time too. Oh and there was a awesome gift bag by Bad Dragon  that have 3 cute and tiny small dragon shaped penises. I honestly wished they were life size but I digress…

I will definitely be returning next year. After attending Exxxotica I have more of an appropriations for porn stars. With just the naked eye all we see is women (and men) 

who have lots of sex for our entertainment. The main difference between us and them* in my eyes* is that we know who they slept with.

They work out hard as hell sexually  and physically to keep in shape. They run businesses, take care of loved ones, and everything else the makes them human. So what if there job is different from the typical 9 to 5, doesn’t mean they don’t need love.
And with that said enjoy the pics and as usual check out the snapchat :In_attendance and the instagram

Almost 29 Rooms

.About 5 hours….that’s how long we: me and the hundreds of ppl waited to get into Refinery 29’s 29Rooms. 29Rooms is an art & fashion fun house made up with celebrity collaborations steaming from topics of beauty, music, the environment, etc; with each room carrying a different theme. The doors opened at 11am and I got there at 12. I already knew I was going to wait about 2 hour to get it but that was a mental understatement. The line wrapped around the building in a loop and just like every pop-up experience I kept telling myself with the sun beating down on body, the motto: YOLO! Literally about 30 mins from the entrance I was giving a scratch card to hopefully skip the line. Sure enough, blessed from the heavens and foot gods below it was the winning card. Extremely excited I gather the people around me who I chatted with for the 5 hours to skip the line and race inside….”WE MADE IT!!!!” We all screamed & took celebratory pics but once we entered I caught a glimpse of something as I  stared into the main hall…MORE FUCKING LINES!!! dsc_47941

To be honest it wasn’t that bad but it’s just the freaking principal!!!  Now the main question of this entire experience: Was it worth it?
Yes: because I met some really cool people, 29Rooms was definitely something to be seen and I can say I went & never have to go again & No: because after all of it I didn’t get to see all 29 rooms because of more fucking lines and the memory magically got misplaced after  that so I could post when I wanted  but I found it. So here are the rooms I made it to…Enjoy!!!

 

Milk. Sugar. Ice.

Pop Up anythings are awesome but even more so when it involves icecream. Visiting New York is the pop up Museum of Icecream. This was on of the hardest to get a ticket too. dsc_3760When I first found about it and checked the site to get a ticket they weren’t for sale yet. So I checked the week it was supposed to open and it was SOLD OUT!!! Everyday, everytime for the whole summer. dsc_3788Gladly I signed up for the news letter so when they extended their stay jumped at the chance. In the process the damn website crashed on me like 8 times before I was able to snatch my ticket up. It was such a cute & tasty little museum. Right upon entering they give you icecream. Just a few steps away, you receive what I call a “sugar bubble” filled with helium. dsc_3768You can suck   in all the helium for the funny voice and eat the collapsed bubble if you want. They actually had fun facts and information about icecream, high headed from inhaling the helium I took pictures of it to read later. One of the coolest things there was the pool full of sprinkles.dsc_3781 Well not real sprinkles (that would have been unsanitary) but a pool full of soft color plastic that looked like the real thing. It was really fun to play in and you kind of sunk into it. dsc_3793Once out of the pool you were giving  a miracle berry tablet that when eaten turns all sour foods sweet. They gave use a lemon with our icecream to test it out and if definitely didn’t disappoint.dsc_3799

As per usual stay tuned to the IG @in_attendance & SC: inattendance  Enjoy!!!!

Afropunk 2016 : Day 2

Going back to Afropunk with a new frame of mind made me enjoy it way more than I did the day before. I embraced all that it had to offer. I stood for a second watching the people but this time not in aww but happy  that I got the chance to witness it all. Happy at seeing all the diversity of people.dsc_4678.jpg Happy to know that everyone was welcomed with know questions asked.Still slightly  in aww by the people and their way of dress, with camera in hand I forced myself to pay attention to the music. Before taking in the first performance of the day there was a dance pretty. As the music played the people came.dsc_4656.jpg What started as a small group quickly became half of the parks field being taking up by moving bodies. Dances circles formed.People cheering on strangers and friends who stepped in the center to show their moves.dsc_4675.jpg It was all such a beautiful thing Now on the the MUSIC! Armed with camera in hand my first performance of the day was Angel Haze. She got BARS!!!  It was my first time seeing her perform and I glad I got the chance wit witness her in action. After checking out the tricycle races again I made my way to the gold stage. Somehow the day before I didn’t know it existed but I decided to stay there for the rest of the day and I was glad I did. The next artist I caught was Gallant.HE SANG HIS ASS OFF!!! I was giving me bits of 90s r&b and Prince. Anyone who  gives you bits of Prince in their on original way is a keeper. I was definitely googling him the next day for more. Once his performance  was done I slowly squeezed my way towards the front and Dj Esta began playing. Boy Oh Boy!!!  If there could have been a roof that he could hypothetically tear off, he did the damn thing. Not one soul near the gold stage wasn’t dancing.DSC_4711 Playing a mixture of 90s classics, trap remixes and all thing in between….He was unstoppable. Next up was my newly discovered fav Kelela. She gave so much soul. The group of ladies I was standing next to me knew every word the pretty much every song she sang. She has so many levels to her voice  it was amazing. Her song “Send Me Out” was stuck in head *in a good way* even after I listened to it.dsc_47241 The nights main attraction for me was The Internet. We  were all sooooooo excited to see them live.The crowd swayed together and sang together. Tyler the Creator was in the cut singing along enjoy himself too .We didn’t want it to end, so much so that the crowd started to scream  Encore! dsc_48031

Sadly it didn’t happen but we can always try right.

Stay Tune in to the Snapchat & IG  because its the  time again…. New York Fashion Week!

 

 

Afropunk 2016: Day 1

I went into it totally wrong. Thinking this is just a typical concert/music festival my mindset wasn’t able to appreciate it for what it actually is. It’s a celebration of music. It’s a celebration of being proud of who you are. It’s a celebration of creativity. It’s a celebration of blackness.DSC_4632 There is totally no judgement. Wear what you wanna wear. Show out for your peers, express your passion & creativity through you. And let me tell you it was definitely a fashion show to be seen.So many different hair styles & colors. So many pieces of artistic jewelry and patterned outfits it was truly site to see.DSC_4659 Honestly I was so busy looking at how people were dress I barely paid to much attention to the musical acts. The acts I did get attention to pay attention to were definitely worth it.DSC_4674 The first one I caught sight of was Qassim & The Juggernaut War Party. Their style and music was completely unique.Their energy never seemed to end. It seriously looked like a party on stage that you wish were apart of.I mean technically you were but not lol. As I wander aimlessly around passing market area which had amazing finds (sadly I only had cash for food) I stumbled upon Toyota Music Renegade Lab. They had a bunch of cool activities like turning cds in to records that actually play music, making a mini music video and marble body art.DSC_4642 Continuing to wander, I found the tricycle race. It is a very entertaining thing to matching adults race each other on tricycles. DSC_4697The next performance I caught was of Trash Talk a rock band from California. Honestly I wasn’t ready for them. I had no clue what to expect but boy did I get a lot. The voice powerful, the band on point, the excitement of the crowd…Unbelievable!
image

There were mosh pits left & right, people crowd suffering,and  jumping off of the stage. At point he told everybody to leave the park and they  left only to run back in a create another huge mosh pit.
image

After all of that I just stayed in one spot to not only recuperate but to wait for Tyler The Creator. While awaiting  The Creator we were blessed with tunes from DJ Yaadcore of Jamica , giving use reggae and Rastafarian vibes.  Once his set was done it was time for Tyler  and once again I wasn’t ready. And not for Tyler *I’m always ready for him* but the crowd! Myself & others were pushed and pulled like a trapped school of fish from people behind use trying to get closer to the stage.
image

It got so bad that security had to help people over the barricade just so they wouldn’t get squashed to death * Yes I’m being a 5% dramatic but it was real*. Once the pushing calmed down. I was able to take in all the awesomeness of the performance. Once it was done I went home lol. There were other acts performing but after what I just survived I needed to rest.

As per usual check the Snapchat & @in_attendance IG for pics & random fun stuff.

 

Can’t Call It Decent, More Like Epic!

I can’t call it Mad just because it was FREAKING EPIC!!! The usual 2 days of music, with great people and AMAZEBALL performances. Day one started off with Neo Fresco & Fki 1st who got the party started.
image

Next Gryffin took the stage and as soon and he got into a groove Mother Nature  (this bitch!) decides to provide us with rain…And  not just a regular shower, a freak wind pushing down pour for about 20 mins. It got so bad that the shut shit down and told us to vacate the premises. Did we listen? HELL NO! We stayed and banded together like the music lovers we are. Some rushed the field with security chasing them. Eventually they gave up and so did the rain. Fully soaked we ran back to continue the party.
image

Next up was Alison Wonderland who was great. Then Tory Lanez who’s set a sat through because I needed to save my energy for the evenings main attractions. Dillon Fucking Francis open his set with the Pokémon theme song. I truly fall in love with him at that moment.
image

I’m pretty sure you could here us screaming “Pokémon” 3 block away. He continued to set fire to our asses track after track he played. Last but not least DIPLO!!! Of course he kept us dancing till the very last minute.

Day two started off with Boombox Cartel and next up was Big Wild. I enjoyed him tremendously. He was what I like to call the conductor of the Groove Train.
image

It’s like he takes you on a ride and you don’t wanna get off. He brought out the drum machine , a keyboard and even whistled on a track…To me that was hot! I appreciate the little things. Now Party Khan, Party Khan, PARTY KHAN!!! The link up of Party Favor and Valentino Khan was the best thing ever. I don’t think I danced so much in a short period of time it was amazing.
image

If could afford to go to every show they play at I would, it was that good. Slushii hit the stage next. I was my first time hearing him play and I will say I enjoyed what I heard. Making her way back into the music world after a bit of legal stuff was Ke$ha or what I like to call her Miss Thickness. She looked amazing. I mean expected nothing less but she put in a bit of weight and it went to all the right places.
image

While she performed I mostly stood there in awe of her legs. Her thighs made me jealous. After the beautiful Ke$ha was Boi-1da. Now to my knowledge he is one of Drakes producers and he started his set playing the 6God. I thought it was just going to be the Drake hour which no one would ever complain about but Drake actually appeared and performed.
image

When I say the crowd went wild, they went there and beyond when he hit the stage. He gave us the best surprise of the day. We all needed a bit of rest after it was all over. Zeds Dead put us right back on the dance floor or shall I say field. The closers of the night was Dj Snake. He had so much freaking energy. I think he would have keep playing til the next day if they let him but sadly they didn’t.
image

However when we thought it was all over and done he came back with a bit of an encore. I could tell he really loves his job.

As per usual check me social media stuff @in_attendance or Inattendance and ENJOY!!!
