Caught in the mix with twice "Band of the Year" winner, D.J. Anthony Provalone.

This week's Indie, D.J. is Anthony Provalone, a native of Buffalo, NY.  He's not your average joe, not your average D.J. either.  This D.J has simply paid his dues but he has sold stocks in himself, invested in himself, then bought himself as an entirety.  It might sound crazy but sometimes genius can take you there.  D.J Provalone makes mixes that range from your mixes that you'd hear in a high speed action movie fight scene, to the type of mix for vampire movies, skateboarding scenes, intense sport scenes, or eye opening clarity.  Though Anthony Provalone is Indie, he's no "new jack".  
D.J Anthony Provalone started off with the ambition to do a solo project but considered the difficulties of conducting business by himself, so he took on band mates.  With band mates comes selling percentages, so that's what he did.  Bands break apart when band mates have other priorities ahead of a band and so did this one.  So this D.J bought back the percentages and using his d.j skills, mixed each band mates parts to his satisfaction.  Believe it or not, this little adaptation done in the pursuit of happiness happen to work in this d.j's favor.

His mix CD " The First Time" was rated best of 1996 according to Night-Life music editor Kevin Hosey.  His single "Look" on the "Elevation of Depression's" CD,  was included on the "Buffalo Music Collective Vol.1". Also Mr. Provalone won the "Best New Artist" at the Buffalo Music Awards.  His single mix "Chigger" was included on "Buffalo Music Collective Vol. II".  
  Elevation of Depression won "Best Experimental Artist" at the WBNY local show music awards and was named "Best of Buffalo" for a second time, only this time in the category of Best Local Industrial Band".  Mr. Provalone also won Buffalo Music award for Top "Hard Core/Metal band".
His mixes, like most icon D.J.s of today, held fans attentions during the 90's all the way in to the 2000's.  This D.J is one of the coolest that I have met in a long time.  He not only mixes for show's where he opens for bands like Vast (Electra Records) and Twelve Rounds (nothing Records), but he also D.J.s mixes at weddings.
Being an indie d.j of a unique genre, starting in the 90's, a period where great music was being produced in massive amounts, he is still mixing it up, producing, recording artist and doing a solo band.  I'm on him to set up his band site and as soon as it's up, I'll have it posted here. Don't hesitate to contact this d.j and have him send you a sample via email, because he will.  D.J Anthony Provalone can be contacted for bookings or music samples @ Anthony.Provolone@yahoo.com .

Go back to the Future of D.J’s with D.J. Fade





               From a place known for its many dedicated and creative musicians, the world’s tallest rollercoaster, among other things, comes one of the next hot independent talent, D.J Fade.  I’m talkin’ bout Joy-z, uhh, eh emm’, I mean New Jersey.  This hot spot adjacent to New York City must have a way to spawn originality because the sound that is created by this young D.J/engineer/producer is definitely of a unique quality.  I’m pretty certain that this D.J goes to his own universe and brings back space dust on his music.  He tells me it’s from the future. 
He creates a sound that is referred to as “Brick City Club Music”.  When I listen to his sound, I definitely hear elements of club music, as well as electro, techno, and house music.  He could be compare to a David Guetta or D.J Mom Jeans, but then you would have to separate his talent and list his many original qualities also.  Check out what I'm speaking of:>> http://soundcloud.com/dj-fade-1   
D.J Fade currently has worked with hip hop artist on a few of his tracks, but has the potential to work with many other genres of music based on the sound he produces.  Hopefully this young D.J doesn’t limit his creative reach to one genre since his talent can go way beyond an arrested development. 
If you haven’t heard his sound yet, then you are missing out.  Since it’s summer, then it's the time to expand your horizon and check out the sounds of D.J Fade.  You can check out his sound on Soundcloud @ http://soundcloud.com/dj-fade-1

“Who’s that girl, twisting to a swirl” Remember the name “Visha Loo”.





 It’s absolutely amazing when you see the skills that a person can have.  Some skills are thought to be given to a person naturally.  With certain attributes, this is true, like politeness, kindness, caring, etc., this seems true.  When it comes to a sense of being artistically versatile, this comes from practice, dedication, development and vision.  These are all character traits found in the attention holding, kind of freaky, talents of Ms. Visha Loo.


If you’re looking for an international talent to create a setting to turn your ordinary party into an event, then this sizzling hot contortionist, and adult model of Alberta, Canada, could be just the touch that you’ll need.  One of Ms. Visha Loo’s many talents is contortion.  For some of us that don’t recall the definition of contortion, it is the ability to bend, stretch, move and hold our body into positions.  For example the human pretzels that get us to thinking of the many positions in the Kama Sutra. 
You won’t see Ms. Loo in a normal flashy circus outfit doing contortion.  Ooh no.  Ms. Loo will display her other artistic qualities while performing.  Another artistic quality that this 5’2, 115lb, adult talent possess, is alternative modeling.  She is what is considered an alternative model.  When you see her modeling it’s more considerate of an art form.  Many Ms. Loo’s photo sets may be considered erotic, adult model, or fetish, some are more fashioned for tailored fashions, while other shoots will be considered horror, rock genre, or gothic.  She may be booked for her modeling skills at Model mayhem. Com @ http://www.modelmayhem.com/4299 or http://www.modelmayhem.com/visha 
  So you might be among the fortunate to see her in sheer lingerie with nipple pasties, bending into a box, or dressed as a horror film character coming at you like 3-D HD, or one of your favorite Disney characters.


If any ladies take notice of her latex attire and realize the quality that it must be to both hug the body while giving enough elasticity to cater to the body movement of her contortion, you should know that Ms. Loo produces these latex line of clothes.  This special latex line of clothes by performer and model Visha loo, is known as Deetz.  Deetz is showcased and modeled on face book @ https://www.facebook.com/pages/Deetz-by-Visha-Loo .  She can be contacted about your request there or https://www.facebook.com/pages/Visha-Loo or booking@vishaloo.com 

This small talented beauty with huge talent is of international fame.  Hailing out of Calgary, Canada, you hear of her with very high regards because she is a very interactive person who is constantly performing and willing to work with any venue to create a memorable performance and show.  
She is also Creative Director of Crimson Events.  Crimson Events is said to be Calgary’s premier kink, and fetish friendly event performer talents, that organize events that fuse an artistic creativity with fetish play and BDSM, as well as all the other various sex positive lifestyles.  I’ll let you be the judge of that when you book them for your event.  You can check out her events and/or collaborate with her and her team @ vishaloo@crimsonevents.ca @http://www.crimsonevents.ca/ or http://www.vishaloo.com/ .  She can be booked @ http://miss.vishaloo.com/ or booking@vishaloo.com
 I first met Ms. Loo, two years ago, and can honestly say that she is as cute, warm and kind as the first day that we spoke.  Get a chance to glance at Ms. Visha loo on her websites http://www.vishaloo.com/ , http://miss.vishaloo.com/ , under the tab videos.  Also you’ll be able to check out her photos on her sites or buy her pin-ups  on amazon @ http://www.amazon.com/Visha-Loo-Twisted-Michael-Enoches/dp/1936882434 .  You can also subscribe to the Crimson Events Calgary youtube channel @ http://www.youtube.com/CrimsonEventsCalgary .  It’s an experience that you’ll never forget.  So when you’re wondering “who’s that girl, bending like a swirl?”, with a class that’s not matched by many.  The ladies name is Visha loo. 


So if you happen to be in Canada, it would be a great idea to check out Crimson Events @ http://www.crimsonevents.ca/ , to see where the incredibly talented Visha loo, will be performing next.

History of Enslavery in New York City

     Ever since I've moved out side of New York City, I've realized that their are things that I've taken for granted.  One of those things is the cultural knowledge that you obtain from being from within this ethnically diverse city.  There are certain stories that I've been asked to tell over and over, as others listened in awe.  This was weird to me since it came as second nature, living in NYC.  I also took for granted the lessons of being a first generation American, where you learn to have an element of the brain more accepting of another point of view. 
    
 There are two good sources of the following account of this "Interesting unknown history" that you may want to check out.  One is "African Burial Ground", located in lower Manhattan.  Their links are http://www.africanburialground.gov or http://www.nps.gov or http://www.gsa.gov/portal/content/101077 or http://www.abgfoundation.org/ or on Twitter 

@AFBurialGrndNPS.



The other source is a book by the very businessman who began the enslavery trading of Africans as a vice to build a new world for the Netherlands that was stolen form the wealthy Anglo Saxon Protestant by the Spainish.  The author and businessman was Willem Usselincx.  The book can be found in three translations.  In Dutch/Portuguese it is, "Vertoogh: hoe nootwendich, nut ende profijtelick het sy voor de Vereenighde Nederlanden te behouden de vryheyt van te handelen op West-Indien, inden vrede metten Coninck van Spaignen. (Dutch Edition) by Willem Usselincx.
    
  In English it is, "More excellent obseruations of the estate and affaires of Holland In a discourse, shewing how necessarie and conuenient it is for their neighbouring ... to trade into the West Indies. (1622) by Willem Usselincx".  
In Swedish it is, "Uthförligh förklaring öfwer handels contractet angåendes thet Södre compagniet uthi konungarijket i Swerighe. (Swedish Edition) by Willem Usselincx".     
 Check it out, no matter how biased you may be at this point in time,   you may learn something that refines your thinking.

The History of Enslavery in New York City

Slavery in New York City is said to be the work of a Kingdom of Belgian businessman “Willem Usselincx”.  Usselincx was born in the time of the Eighty Years War (1568-1648) in which the Dutch revolted from Spain and formed the Dutch Republic.  Usselincx was born in Antwerp and during the recapture of this Antwerp area which was renamed the Spanish Netherlands, Protestant citizens were forced to flee into exile.  Ironically Usselincx ends up in Spain and later Portugal.  He went on to write a book “Naerder Bedenckingen”, or in English translation “More Excellent Obseruations of the Estate and Affaires of Holland in a Discourse, Shewing How Necessarie and Conuenient It Is for Their Neighbouring Countries, as Well as the Netherland Prouinces, to Trade Into the West Indies.” (1622)  Amazingly as it might seem, this book is very business oriented and callus.  Usselincx sees this as nothing more than a business and enslaved captured Africans as subhuman.


Usselincx owned and founded the Dutch Company that had a primary motive to steal men and woman out of the land of Africa to the West Indies in Islands like Curacoa, St. Eustatius , under a contract with Spain called “Asiento”.  They also carried slaves to South America or “the Brazils”, Guyana, Surinam in order to flourish an industry of chocolate and sweets.  The company was named “The West India Companies” of Sweden.”  In Historical Society of Pennsylvania books, it is referred to as “The South, Ship, and West India Companies of Sweden.” The debate began in the Dutch Republic Parliament in which the Company broke the power of Spain and won the independence of the Netherlands.  Usselincx explained his business ventures to Sweden.  Usselincx was granted Sweden’s resources for success in the marketplace and received royal privileges from King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden for his trading company.  On June 2nd, 1621, the West India Trade Company was granted a trade monopoly in the West Indies by the Netherlands and given jurisdiction over the African slave trade of Brazil, the Caribbean and North America.  It operated in a area of West Africa, the Americas and the eastern part of New Guinea to eliminate all competition.


Usselincx hoped to create a better society for Protestants who would migrate to this New World.  He named these new territories New Netherlands (now known as New York City) and was supported by the States General of the Netherlands.
The story goes that this very same company used 30 Statian blue beads to purchase New York’s Manhattan Island from the Native tribes.  These Natives were fooled in more ways than one.  Statia beads were from the Island of St. Eustatius in the West Indies.  There lived Caribe, Taino, and Arawak Natives who were direct descendants of American Native tribes.  These beads were taken from the enslaved African Natives that were bought to St. Eustatius that they used to barter with.  The enslaved African natives wore these beads to signify their own value.  So seeing these beads and wanting them was a Native right that was sold to the Native American tribes by the Dutch company as a business tactic.  The story goes that after of all of the disasters and wars over the island of St. Eustatius and hurricanes have hidden the beads, but they can be found in the sand of the island if someone is observant and lucky.  One bead is worth U.S $25.


In 1625 the West India Company introduced slavery to New Netherland bringing eleven African enslaved people and German and French Anglos of servitude.  They were put to work as farmers, fur traders and builders.  The builders built a wall to protect Dutch of this company from the Native tribes in a place today known as “Wall Street”.  Dutch enslaved were allowed to attend Dutch Church, be married by ministers, be baptized along with their children, testify in court, sign legal documents, bring civil actions against Anglos, and work enslavement hours to earn wages equal to Anglo Dutch West India Trade Company Workers.
The West India Trade Company failed and went bankrupt due to bad investments like wars with the English.  English Businesses similar to West India Trade Company took over where they left off.  When the English competition arrived slave laws in their colony were more harsh.  Slaves were considered “chattel or property and enslavement only could be terminated by death or emancipation. 
It’s said by the first ever U.S. Census, the slave population in New York grew to 21,324 by1790, making New York the largest slave owning state north of the Mason Dixon Line.  This held true for two centuries that the state practiced slavery.  In New York City, slave ships made over 150 trips to Africa between 1715 and 1776. Most of the enslaved people brought to Manhattan were transported from New York after a brief time in port to the Caribbean or else to Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia.


In 1799, the state legislature passed emancipation acts that freed all enslaveed born after that date.  Any enslaved born prior to that year were required to serve until girls reached the age of 25 and boys reached the age 28.  In 1817 a new emancipation law was passed freeing all enslaved people born before 1799.  Slavery was finally abolished in New York on July 4,1827.  


After this New York slave owners were said to be selling their enslaved to slave traders, who then transported them to markets in the Deep South, where slaves were still in high demand.  Free blacks lived in New York at risk of enslavement. The colonial courts ruled that if an Anglo person claimed his Negro employee was a slave, the burden was on the Negro person to prove he was not.  Negroes on the street who could give no plausible account of their movements or proof of their freedom often were picked up by the authorities and jailed on suspicion of being runaway slaves.  


These were all reasons that many freedom-seekers followed the Underground Railroad on their way to Canada.  Its prime location, with access to major water routes, made it the destination of choice for many Africans fleeing slavery along the eastern seaboard.  New York City and State seemed like a safe haven for freedom-seekers who knew they would be protected in New York's many Negro, Quaker, mixed race and other progressive white communities as well.  A large and vocal free black population was present after the manumission (freeing) of slaves in New York State in 1827.  Anti-slavery organizations were abundant in New York State - more than any other state.  The reform politics and the progressive nature of the state gave rise to many active anti-slavery organizations.  Many nationally-known and locally influential black and white abolitionists chose to make their homes in New York. Among them were: Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, Gerrit Smith, Henry Ward Beecher, Sojourner Truth and John Brown.

Who's that Girl, the hot blond, tattooed Porn Model? Kleio Valentine, a name to remember.

Many times when we watch porn movies, we are unaware that we happen to be watching movies that were made ages ago.  Seeing actors or actresses that are no longer in the industry for numerous reasons.  One hot blonde that you can be certain that is giving you fresh work for your viewing pleasure is Ms. Kleio Valentien.  She is a face that you are sure to see.  
If you're doting  right now, unsure if you recognize her or not, it's probably because you were unaware that you were watching old porn.  
Kleio is an Adult Actress, nude/ tattoo/ fetish model, and nude cam show entertainer.  Her work is always fresh and up to date since she works with the sexy tattooed punk rock Adult film actress, nude model, and Ceo of Burning Angel.com, Joanna Angel. When she is not filming one of her excellent adult film productions like  
Boobalicious





















that can be found at http://www.burningangel.com/product_info.php?products_id=143 , she is doing professional Adult shoots like this one of many in her set, shot just this month, and can be found @ http://www.burningangel.com/pics/1914/boobalicious .  She is also a web cam show model, continuing to fulfill fantasies at http://www.kleio.cammodels.com/ .  I've watched her perform just about the hottest shows possible, when just moments before she was miserable, or in the worst pain ever.  She's not a softy but it's hard to tell.  
   Kleio is one person who is so cute when she is interacting with fans, that I'm not sure that she's aware that she's doing it.  I tried to tell her that she's just cooler than she knows.  She interacts with others @ twitter  https://twitter.com/#!/kleiovalentien , on face book https://www.facebook.com/kleio.valentien , or on her personal blog found on Wordpress @ http://kleiovalentien.wordpress.com/ . 
Kleio is a dedicated worker and usually only works with BurningAngel.com , but she can be booked by going through ModelMayhem.com @ http://www.modelmayhem.com/162697 . 
     So if you plan on watching, booking one of the hottest in the business, I'd advise you to remember "Who's that girl".  Her name is Kleio Valentien. Look out for her because she's only getting hotter.

Precautions for Tattoo Artist, Indie Musicians,photogrophers, etc..

Being that jobs may be limited and few for a while, this may be the year that our small businesses take off.  Even though these small businesses my be our aspirations and goals, there are jealous and envious minded people that choose to attempt to get richer by sabotaging our businesses.  There are a few tricks to the trades for my Indie musician, vocalist, studio producers, film directors, photographers, tattoo artist, and other  small businesses.  
Many products that we use such as Inks, Films, and even electrical products, if we look close have disclaimers and are produced by LLC.'s. What this means is Limited Liability Companies and Corporations. This is so that they cannot be fully liable for any damages that may occur.  They can only be held liable for a percentage that would be so small that the law suit would cost more than the amount that is recovered.  This would be a lost for any scheming client to pursue and would be a deterrence.  A LLC license can be obtained by filing "Articles of Organization" with your Secretary of State's office. All rules and fees can be found on your states Secretary of State's website.
Also a huge part of dealing with any customers that are troublesome would be solved by contracts.  Contracts are protection against any last minute renegotiations, change of plans, schemes, etc.  Sample contracts are available online for you to get an idea of important things to include.  Eg. A tattoo artist could use a contract like this: http://news.bmezine.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/tattoorelease.html , while a song writer, publisher, film director, or photographer could use contracts like these: http://www.ispgroupinc.com/contracts/contract_samples.htm .  The important thing is to make certain names and circumstances are to your satisfaction and it's always good to have a lawyer read over them to double check your work.
Companies like Ascap(American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) 
 and BMI (Broadcast Music Inc) and Society of European Stage Authors and Composers (SESAC) are good for Singer, Song writers, Film makers, Authors, Illustrators, etc. to have their copyrights protected and their royalties collected with out any hassle.  They often provide the contracts and hassle free services.
These are all thing to consider before any of my small business owners do jobs for clients because they are so called "Cool".  In reality we are all going to encounter a client or customer that "I wouldn't wish on the Taliban."
