    Justin Timberlake is back after 6yrs with Suit & Tie…

    On 2006’s FutureSex/LoveSounds, Justin Timberlake looked forward in time to imagine what dance music in, say, 2013 might sound like. In actual 2013, he is looking backwards— deep into the 1970s, in fact— to reimagine old sounds and styles. While not quite as risky as “SexyBack” or as rewarding as “My Love”, “Suit & Tie” is still one hell of a wedding reception jam, as bubbly as champagne. Timbaland creates a smooth beat out of a marimba roll and harp gliassando that Marvin Gaye must have left on the cutting-room floor, and Timberlake rides it with that fluid, effortless falsetto. “Let me show you a few things,” he sings by way of seduction. Because it’s a song called “Suit & Tie”, Jay-Z is on here, delivering the obligatory rapped verse like he’s crashed a wedding. It’s another in a string of uninspired cameos by Hova but even he can’t sink the song’s slinky vibe. Much like the sartorial combination of the title, this song is smartly modular— mix-and-matchable, even— with each section clearly marked by hard tempo changes.

    JTT COOL

    I’m feeling it…I am not going to lie, I was hesitant to listen to it; due to my opinions from the incidents that occurred during the Superbowl with the Janet wardrobe malfunction fiasco…yes I held on to that grudge and many members of my community did as well. So for him to come back, get his respect and soul card back he definitely had to come CORRECT. And Suit & Tie definitely comes correct, a mixture of chopped and screwed pop, rhythm & blues, Pharrellyesque sorta hip-hop mixed vibe (that makes sense). Its a Justin Timberlake upgraded…lets see where this goes…his new album The 20/20 Experience out this year.

    In A New York State of Mind…

    Cheers Darlings!

    I feel like its been forever since my last personal written post. And I as I proclaimed before about wanting to post more in this regard…have failed my own challenge miserably. Well I am not going to be too hard on myself. For the simple fact that my blogging or lack there of was truly from being busy! Yes, as an up and coming Music Video & Film Director/Writer amongst other interest, I have been very busy! Which when creating is always G O O D!

    I’ve been from pre-production to post-production and back again with multiple projects and its just barely July 1st! It’s summer and I feel like besides the heat of the summer sun, I wanted to put more heat in what I am trying to accomplish this season. I have immediate goals for the next weeks and couple of months to come to attain. This is a challenge I welcome and at the brink of this all I have switched my work mode completely to the "New York State of Mind".

    Listen if you’ve never lived or hell ever been to New York City you won’t get it. But here is my definition:

    New Yorkers NEVER let ANYTHING defeat them, stop them, get in their way, or bring them down. The hustle mentality is bread in the people there and they thrive off of it. The attitude is DO IT, GO FOR IT and DO IT NOW! Whether you win or lose….

    If you LOSE, do it until you WIN, which really means until you SUCCEED.
    **This must be something that’s worthwhile (or fun), nothing with bad intentions of course.

    It’s a lead, follow, or just get the hell out of the way attitude.
    If you got something to say, say it, get to the point, don’t ramble, etc.

    The rest of the world, especially southerners (and I swear L.A. is the South!!) take this as being rude, ballsy or cocky. New Yorkers just get to the point in a sentence or 2, instead of a paragraph. They even walk across the huge city streets of Manhattan in a fast pace, in a herd of intensity! Everyone has something to do and places to go. No time to stop, and stragglers will be trampled.

    It’s the New York pace…… a serious race…get it, catch it, do it… THE ALL OR NOTHING MENTALITY……It’s the New York State of Mind…..!!

    {a portion of my quote is brought to you by: http://www.askanewyorker.com}

    I have been lucky enough to have visited, lived and worked in New York City for a collective 3 years while receiving my undergraduate degree. And during that span of time I’ve managed to keep that mentality as a handy tool in my life as I continue to grow, move forward in my career and meet/network with others. Having this tool is truly a life saver while living in L.A. for sure. It keeps me on my toes and my aggressive nature towards what I want to do allows me to often be ahead of the curve.

    Now I am sure you asking, well if you have it already why are you switching your mode?

    Well to be honest, I haven’t used this tool in a while. I’ve let it collect dust though its not to the point of rust which I am grateful for. Nevertheless, I have falling back a little on my hustle spirit and I’ve even notice that I started picking up the nasty habits of Californians. You know, being more defensive, non reactionary to anything, slower, oblivious, boring…you know all the things that are completely OPPOSITE of my New Yorkers! So yes, this mindset change is very much needed and just in the nick of time!

    I am in the middle of post production for 2 short films produced by my collective (Despite The Inevitable and Victorious Lola), they are headed to special contest and festivals. I have my final short film of the year in pre-production which is not even close to completion we still have to location scout 80% of the film, cast and uh yeah…FINANCE (indie-gogo campaign coming soon)! I am also finishing up my treatment for my first music video of the summer by a fantastic musician and artist Kasi Jones shooting the end of July. Moreover, I am preparing to launch my new T-Shirt Apparel line within the next month!! I am not even going to write about graphic designing projects (that’s a whole other beast). Needless to say, I am and will continue to be a BUSY BEE this summer and a little help from my tool aka "NEW YORK STATE OF MIND" will get my hustling spirit and grinding engine rived up to finish what I’ve started and complete all aspects of these goals.

    I want to inspire as I always say, because it is true. I want to inspire young people to have goals, complete them and always strive for ABSOLUTE EXCELLENCE! There is no better gratification then knowing you’ve tried your best and succeeded!!

    Thanks for reading buttercups, come back soon!

    Laugh, Live & Love,

    Director Kitty xox

    Jim Henson’s Fantastic World…

     I Cannot wait to see this EXHIBITION:
    Jim Henson’s Fantastic World at the Museum of the Moving Images next week!!

    While I am here on the East Coast  (in Philadelphia for some shooting gigs etc.) I am getting totally geeked for this exhibit yes I am yes I am!!! My 80’s child is singing “dance magic dance…dance magic dance…do you believe in the power? The power of the babe?! LOL

    Jim Henson’s Fantastic World celebrates the internationally known creative genius Jim Henson, whose work encompassed film, television, and puppetry. The exhibition features over 120 artifacts, including drawings, storyboards, and props, all of which illustrate Henson’s boundless creativity and innumerable accomplishments.

    Fifteen iconic puppets, including Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog, Rowlf, and Bert and Ernie, are on view, along with photographs of Henson and his collaborators at work and excerpts from his early projects and experimental films. The exhibition spans Henson’s entire career, with drawings, cartoons, and posters produced during his college years in the late 1950s and objects related to the inspired imaginary world of his popular 1982 fantasy film, The Dark Crystal. The exhibition features artifacts from Henson’s best-known projects, The Muppet Show, The Muppet Movie and its sequels, Fraggle Rock, and Sesame Street, in addition to materials from Sam and Friends, an early show he created in the 1950s, and his pioneering television commercial work in the 1960s.

    Every weekend, Moving Image will present public programs related to the exhibition for audiences of all ages, including screenings, hands-on workshops, and exclusive special events with personal appearances by Henson’s close collaborators and family members.

    Muppetasticness & Jim Henson Show Coming to Museum of Moving Images NYC this summer!

    So I came across this story via  The New York Times (arts section) of their online blog. Can I just say this is a childhood dream come true! If you are a early 80’s kid you can totally feel me on this and since this exhibit will be pOpping off during the summer I am so there when I visit home in August! This is something I cannot miss… once in a lifetime you dig?!

    Jim Henson and Kermit

    It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights: a traveling exhibition on Jim Henson, the innovative puppeteer and creator of imaginative works from “Sesame Street” and “The Muppet Show” to “Fraggle Rock” and “The Dark Crystal,” will come to the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens, this summer.

    The museum said on Thursday that the exhibition, “Jim Henson’s Fantastic World,” will open on July 16 and run through Jan. 16, 2012; it will feature more than 120 works, including drawings, props and, of course, puppets from a career that spanned some 35 years.

    “It really shows that the Muppets didn’t just come out of nowhere,” Cheryl Henson, a daughter of Henson and president of the Jim Henson Foundation, said in a telephone interview. “Between 1954 and 1969 alone, there’s 15 years of experimentation there. It’s inspiring for people to see that you don’t become successful immediately. You have to try many, many things.”

    The traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian and the Jim Henson Legacy features original puppets like Kermit the Frog, Rowlf the Dog, and Bert and Ernie (as well as Mahna Mahna and the Snowths, for the hardcore Henson fans). And visitors can trace Henson’s career from his 1950s Washington television puppet series “Sam and Friends” to the making of films like “The Muppet Movie” and “Labyrinth.”

    Beyond her father’s best-known work, Ms. Henson noted that the exhibition also included such oddities as his never-produced designs for a nightclub called Cyclia; elements from an experimental short film called “Time Piece”; and commercial artwork Henson created for posters and jazz album covers. (“As we like to say, my father was always an entrepreneur,” Ms. Henson said.)

    The Museum of the Moving Image said it was planning special programming on Sept. 24, which would have been Henson’s 75th birthday, as well as other events including an anniversary screening of a restored 35 millimeter print of “Labyrinth.”

    Oh you don’t realize how giddy this has got me…the child in me is screaming and doing cartwheels and moonwalking around in white tube socks and miss piggy underwear! lol I just can wait, wow!
