omg so here's a new single that was released on today by Sir Nenis & Marked Man, "Purple Mountains Majestic" along with remixes by Astronomar, Square Mode, MikeQ & Divoli S'vere, and The Knight Cats. At first when Bubba sent it over to me I was like yes, and now here it is. It got a ton of radio support, like a lot. It even played on Kiss FM here in Chicago!

So like you knowwwwwwww, I'm in a band, and this is our mixtape!
"You know, monamiejorge†apes bring people together. Last year when Boyfriend made a tape for me we ended up in a band, this is our band's mixtape. As soon as we had our first song and video, "Vergine", it caught the attentions of like everyone, including people like: Diplo, Eve Berlin, Little Boots, Dinamo Azari, My Panda Shall Fly, and a ton more (I say this because I literally can not remember how much attention we received). Then we made a cover of "Call Me Maybe" and that was huge too. It was everywhere from Elektro Mag to being selected as one of the best videos of the week by Electronic Beat (T-mobile's website). Anyways not saying all this so Im convincing you how great our band is or anything, these are just cool things that have happened -- and now here's our mixtape. Through out it you can hear me singing Shania Twain, and it includes a lot of music that just fit us. We're releasing our EP soon too. for more WEARE18 catch us here: www.facebook.com/wearrr18credits"

anyone who knows me know about my affinity and dying love for this movie. and it's so obscure to many, I think -- or at least the internet. Someone posted the entire movie on youtube and well I had to make .gifs -- I've never come across any myself of any (with It's Pat).
p.s i've always wanted the doll in the movie. and i thought the obsession from kyle was hot. and yes many more gifs can be made from this movie.

I made this promo film for the upcoming Screamin' Rachael: Queen of House album that I curated. I also had a photoshoot and it was pretty awesome. I'll post those photographs later.

I'm the most fertile in the spring. My energy, my life, my optimism -- through the roof. I think it's these tough Chicago winters that take a toll on my caribbean spirit. I need to roam free without intense heats and colds, can't I just have it all?
I asked Kreap to make a mixtape inspired by bathhouses. And in a way this tape is like the things that I desire when I sit in the steam/ sauna -- a life that would cater to my inner bohemian. Alas, I just look like a New Haven/ Princeton 18 year old straight from my private school, going on the circuit called life.

So for the past months now I've been working on this album and I'm super duper excited about it. Mainly because all the music that I chose is so exciting and I genuinely like it, and also I'm already ready for the next compilation (the process began when I was listening to all these new songs). So above is the album cover that I made.....
