Anais Nin: You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken.

The Ticketed Experience: Extravaganzaa

The Trip
I am NOT putting up all 15435678 pictures we took. Not going to happen. So, I'm putting up the top 20. Here they are...

Dunno who, but all I know is that they rolled out a red carpet for these three. It was right near the Waldorf Astoria, so I'm thinking that the building they were walking to was kind of swanky as well..

You know what this is...
Times square.

This is the sister hotel to the one we stayed in. No wonder why we didn't go stay here. The view is breathtaking and the rate per night is well....expensive.

Clinton Recording Studio. My dad, being the producer he is, wanted to be nosy as hell and get price quotes on the local studios. So this is him and a ghost-like image of one of the asistants who doubled as our tour guide.

Central Park..just a regular day for these folks. I like the simplicty of these two ordinary people.

Ok, so I was kinda mad. Why is it that I was expecting this big'ol huge cinematic entrance, and all I saw was this tiny sign. I'm cant be serious. THAT'S the Apollo? That tiny ass building? Damn I was kinda disappointed because this historical building/theater wasn't much to look at on the outside.

Harlem. Right near this area was the Cotton Club.

Chinatown. I love how busy this is!

Brooklyn Bridge..yeah it's pretty.
Make sure that you take one of the double-decker tour busses if you decide go to NYC . Also, make sure you take the Grey Line tours and purchase the $108 tour package which includes four tours. Yes it's worth it. Espeially when you ge tot take a night tour of NYC and the Riverfront of Brooklyn. Breathtaking. It's a really cool experience. Yes, I was close enough to touch this streetlight. Did I touch it? Yes. Was I ever going to get the opportunity to touch a streetlight again? Never!! Had to do it. Oh, and on this ride i also touched the top of a regular city bus. Idk...i was just kind of semi-bored.

Daddy and I went to the world famous Blue Note in Greenwich Village to see Roy Ayers. One of the top 10 experiences ever!!


New York, J'taime..I think

This picture reminds me of everything I remember about NYC. The Grit... The Grime... The Glamour... All on a smorgasbord of concrete and bedrock.

By The Way, my next post will be a blockbuster anniversary extravaganza!! It's my 100th blog post and also the first episode of the new season of my radio show so you will first, see pics/videos of my trip to NYC, videos from my coverage of Detroit Fashion Week and you will also hear my radio show!! Yayeee!!! I can't wait. So therefore it will be an Extra Special Episode of The Ticketed Experience.
