World Series Dj

Whether you’re a die-hard or fair-weather fan, many of us cannot ignore the heightened excitement brought on by our Boston Red Sox!

It started with a call of the upmost urgency and privacy: Music Management was looking for a final Dj to play alongside the incredibly talented “NIGHTSHIFT” Band. We were still in the Tampa Bay series and the event was to only take place if we won the Pennant.

There were dueling pianists, jazz bands and another Dj for this event of a lifetime planned by Nicole Simeral of Simeral & Co. Below are snapshots of just some of what was going on this night of Oct 21, World Series Party for the Boston Red Sox!

Enjoy…

My Dj Booth for the evening stacked on top of the main stage where NightShift performed with shadow dancers on each side and a light show for a mini concert.

My Homie, and Co-Dj Hevan, having some fun with a Ted Williams Cut Out. Vintage Black & White Filter to keep it Old School.

Joes Designer jeans, Classic Cedar Boot w high collar, Boss button down, trendy vest and trademark suspenders is how I rolled to the ball game. Yes, that’s the field I’m standing on and the Green Monster in the background. #MakeMoves

Sight line down 1st base straight to home plate. This is gonna be one hell of a ride. Go Sox! #FenwayPark- So I’m starting to think this is a big deal ehh?

Ok so maybe we met some players and maybe one of them let me try on his 2004 World Series Championship Ring? MAYBE!!??

Up close and personal shot of the Dj booth. Boots off to the side for that original look.

Media Everywhere, telecast and VIPs all over the place. Top of the dug-out and peep how the Boston Red Sox looks like a Nike Check/Shwoosh! Yep! #Panoramic

Must do chillin in the Red Sox dug-out No Big Deal… #WorldSeriesBaby

Something about a pole, lots of writing on it, I’ll spare you some of its language but nonetheless, kinda cool.

NightShift rehearsing and, he won’t repeat it, but the lead female vocalist gave Hevan the chills.

This car might belong to that guy who’s name begins w BIG and rhymes w Puppi… #JusSayin

I want to thank again for allowing me to part of such a cool experience!

 

6 Rules to Live Life

This isn’t really a movie review, but you can probably see I got something out of it and I think you should definitely check it out. It was one of those things.. I’m watching it and then I heard a line, cleaned my ear out and was like, “say what?!”

That sh*t was real!

The movie is People Like Us starring Chris Pine, Michelle Pfeiffer, Olivia Wilde, Elizabeth Banks and Jon Favreau. The cast should be enough for you all to watch it 😉 Real quick, the movie is about Chris Pine’s return home after his father dies and he finds out about a sister he never knew he had. Craziness ensues.

Seriously though: great talent, deep film, legit life lessons.

The following are 6 quotes from the movie that made an impact on me and I hope they will for all of you. I don’t want to add my own comments because I think they speak loudly on their own. Instead, I hope it sparks a discussion between us and between you and whoever friend/coworker/spouse, etc.

1) If you like something because you think other people will, it’s a sure bet that nobody will.

2) Most doors in the world are closed so if you find one that you want to get into, you sure as hell better have an interesting knock.

3) Everything that you think is important isn’t, and everything that you think isn’t important, is.

4) Don’t shit where you eat.

5) Lean into it, outcome doesn’t matter, be there for it.

6) Never sleep with someone who has more problems than you.

10 New Things about IOS 7

For all you fellow Apple/iPhone users out there – take notice!

1.) EMAIL: you can still swipe, but only from Right to Left, no more going both ways. This is a pain if you have become accustomed to swiping the other way (as myself and my sister have.)

2.) SPOTLIGHT is now easier to access. I use this feature all the time – so happy to see it more accessible to me when I’m searching through my phone. How to: just pull down from the home screen about an inch and don’t pull from the top or else you will activate notifications
3.) SHORT NAMES utilizes the nickname feature a little better by placing the short name above any conversation or email correspondences you have. I hate it and turned the feature off but it’s not a bad idea.
4. CALLING someone from a text is a pain now. Yes they placed the contact info at the top at all times but u have to touch the phone 3x to make a phone call vs before when u just scrolled to the top and touched 1x or 2x. #SpoiledProblems
5. You can now see the countdown when you SNOOZE from the lock screen. Way Cool!
6. SLOW MOTION is probably the coolest feature ever! If you haven’t used it then that’s why you’re doubting it.
7. FLASHLIGHT is native on the phone and there’s no need for an app. THANK YOU.
8. SAFARI’S SEARCH BAR is now universally the google search bar as well. Nice move. Meaning you can enter a web address and search a actor/actress in the same space.
9. APPS now allows u to have multiple pages within a category. Not my favorite feature cuz it’s one extra step to get an app opened.
10. MESSAGES no longer opens the one message hanging around in your conversations although if you read my previous blog post I leave the read receipt on for a reason. Hehe. This is a an awesome new feature!
There are a ton of new features stay tuned for part II. These are a few things I noticed playing around w the all new ios7. Do you have the 5s (Sucks)? What do you like or not like about the new phone and software?

MakeMoves: Post Roundup

I thought it might be cool to do a “roundup” post to make it easier to find certain types of posts. Today, I’m linking all of my Make Moves posts to really take all the work out of it for you 😉

How Do You Challenge Yourself to #MakeMoves? How do you challenge yourself? I write a lot about #MakeMoves and how I strive everyday to accomplish as much as i can and live as much as possible. But, how do I do that everyDAY? How do you?

How to Start Making Moves with a TED Talk TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. There are a series of “talks” which are videos of speakers on the widest range of topics and each talk ranges from 3 min to 20 min. Let this one motivate you!

New Strategies for Every Excuse – I’m constantly reflecting on ways to make the most out of my day, my life, my company and I think the biggest thing I run into when I discuss #MakingMoves with others is that they don’t know how to start or where to start.
