There aren’t many events worthy of an all-caps blog entry title, it is nearly impossible for me to convey my excitement for the Memorial Day Log Jam which will take place at Matunuck State Beach. A full day of sliding around my favorite wave with a handful of my favorite surfers…. heart-splosion.
hey, thats me!
Where: Matunuck State Beach
When: May 26, 2012, 9am – 11am
What: ‘See 20 of the areas finest log drivers get properly squared up,’ The event is limited to 20 people, invite only… ‘for the sake of it not becoming a zoo.’ = awesome
Big thanks to Greg Pearson for setting this whole thing up. He is one of my favorite local surfers, he personally contributed to my love for surfing and he is an asset to the great loggin’ community here in Rhode Island. He also did a killer job with the images on the Log Jam tumblr site. Loving it!
What are the prizes? The top three finishers get axes, and first place also gets to hang onto a deluxe flannel coat until the next one!!
This city ... I love it to pieces
Hello dearest friends, this post contains no arts, crafts, faux fur or fire spinning. It is much, much more important than all of those lovely things.
Please do the universe a favor and check out this video. I am honored to call many of these students my personal friends. Especially the beautiful brunette with the big blue eyes. Ms. Caitlin asked me to share this with my followers; I fully support the ‘make it pink’ mission and I would love it if my readers would give it a chance.
“Our professor challenged us to make a viral video. Instead, we decided to make a difference.”
I am so impressed!!!
I know, I know…. I have been a sub-par blogger. Rather than give you another cute-animal-i’m-oh-so-sorry post, I figure it is probably best to explain all of the awesome things that I have been doing aside from blogging. So, this is what I did last week.
I put some posters up (all over the planet) for the awesome WaterFire Fête event that I have been working on.
I danced my face off at Lupo’s. True Crew’s Laidback Luke show was quite entertaining. Thanks Kevin James for this photo!
I helped prepare this setup for laced bass’ show at studio 3 on 4:20.
I had 30 or so of my closet friends up from DC/Philly/NYC/CT/MA. We had the most fantastical Birthday Birthday celebration EVER!
Some beautiful women spun poi in my back yard
Some other beautiful women chatted in said back yard while steven lit some poi on fire and had a couple go’s!
Adi spun, sans-pants.
We had a black light disco in my creepy port-like basement. EZ Almighty rattled the entire house with some extremely dirty beats. Against all odds, the cops did not come. Apparently I can light things on fire and be as loud as I want, my house must be in some sort of mayhem-containing vortex.
And all I have to show for it are these terrible photos and an overflowing bowl of bacon grease. <3
My buddy was owed 20 bucks (or maybe it was $10, I can’t remember) by one of his buddies. He went to collect his loan and the friend had no cash, but he did have this amazing unicorn mirror. Needless to say, my buddy made out like a bandit.
will be chockfull of debauchery! (if all goes as planned)
To all of my party people: make sure you stop by Studio 3 tonight for some of the best electronic music & visuals to ever hit Rhode Island ….and their poster is also pretty awesome.
I fully support the astronaut.
For the duration of the weekend… I will be hosting the most amazing group of individuals for a chill-sesh of epic proportions. Ms. Tawny Love, I am honored to help facilitate your birthday party and I can’t wait to show you an amazing time!
Hello Friends! I have been a busy girl these past couple months, planning an amazing fundraiser for WaterFire Providence. (Ten bands, three DJs, fire spinning, awesome food for the VIP reception…. wowzas.) WaterFire is a non-profit organization that strives to ’inspire Providence and its visitors, revitalize the urban experience, foster community engagement, and creatively transform the city.’ WaterFire in a nutshell: we light a bunch of fires in the middle of the river and let them burn for the (free) enjoyment of anyone and everyone. (oooooo, ahhhhh)
Thanks Dave Amadio for this beautiful photo!
Like I said…WaterFire is a non-profit, and this whole production has sky-high costs. Which is why we are throwing this AMAZING fundraiser on May 4 at Fête in Providence:
$10 General admission tickets here: http://www.fetemusic.com/event/waterfire-fete/
$50 VIP tickets here: http://waterfirefete.eventbrite.com/
Facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/393637597321854/
Questions? E-mail email@example.com
Why support WaterFire? Well, according to this article, ‘struggling RI cities turn to ‘transformative’ arts as an engine of economic growth.’ …. Finally, they are starting to understand the power of creativity and creative collaboration. DUH!
And finally, thanks to Fête for being so amazing. The venue is spectacular and they have generously agreed to sponsor this event.
This gem is going to be transformed into a fannypack for this weekend's festivities !!
Mer and I got to rally around in a golf cart and hand out beers at the Jamestown Golf Course, here is the evidence:
I know, I know. Still blowing it with the blog posts. But I sent out a bunch of these today. And it felt SO GOOD. Stay tuned for some arts and crafty stuff. Xo
