I am at home with the me. I am rooted in the me who is on this adventure.

by @ Monday, September 9th, 2013. Filed under Men in Suits, observations on life, random musings

I’ve been on hiatus. I give you video footage of a man in a suit.

Since I last checked in, the world has kept turning, more babies have been made and I have been in the middle of a million projects.  So, if you weren’t directly involved in one of those projects, you may or may not know what the hell I have been doing with my life (I enjoy living a life of mystery).

  1. I made the Mockingjay dress for a client to wear to comicon.
  2. I’ve been teaching sewing classes. I love being back in the classroom.
  3. I revamped my job description. I am a project manager that happens to be good a bookkeeping.  I offer small business solutions in addition to general bookkeeping.
  4. I took a few jobs sample-making, prototyping, and doing piece work.  It’s nice when you can help your clients with both their bookkeeping and their merchandising.
  5. I moved on up to the East side like George and Weezy.  I don’t live in a deluxe apartment.  I live in a house. I have a roommate. There may or may not be a housewarming party.
  6. I skipped town.  It’s a pattern, I move, then I skip town. I headed east to get my fix of cooler weather, tall green trees, the woods, and old buildings.   Every time I go back to that, it’s harder to return.  Especially now that I have gotten really good at making my own jobs.
  7. I took my teaching gig on the road.  I heard some people were going to drive in to town for my class and I offered to come to them.

So yes,  I have been taking advantage of this self-employment thing.  I intend to do more of it. Is it scary?  Fuck yes.  Do I recommend it to everyone? No. The hustle is not for the faint of heart.  I have freak out moments on how to pay the bills in lean months, how to charge fair prices and still pay myself a fair wage. I am still working on that whole life/work balance since I work from home (I did have a pleasant distraction these last few weeks.)

Girl Talk

by @ Friday, June 21st, 2013. Filed under Men in Suits, Music

Today’s head bobbing DJ is Girl Talk.
I happened to find an old picture of him in a suit. I refuse to post a picture of the unibomber beard he has been sporting.

I look forward to his next album.  Until then, you can listen to All Day

The Hood Internet

by @ Thursday, June 20th, 2013. Filed under Men in Suits, Music

I <3 mixtapes. I remember when my baby daddy first introduced me to these guys. I also remember the first time that M and I saw them live. My favorite track to date is The XX Gon’ Give It To Ya

Workroom Distractions

by @ Wednesday, June 19th, 2013. Filed under Men in Suits, Music

Today’s man in a hoodie is going to get me in trouble.  We had a “Where are they now?” moment in the studio that lead to a google search, that lead to wanting to see pictures of Curt Cameruci,  aka Curt Flossy, aka DJ Autobot.  Sadly I could not find him in a suit.

I promise to keep looking though.

Men in Hoodies

by @ Tuesday, June 18th, 2013. Filed under Men in Suits, Music

Some of you know about my obsession with musicians/MCs and head bobbing DJs.  Sadly, many of these men don’t wear suits.  The closest they get is a track suit.

Today’s Man in a Hoodie is Slug from Atmosphere.

Slug from AtmosphereFor some reason, the title to Atmosphere’s 5th album has been in my head.  When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold.  Life is what you make with it.  If you don’t like the cards you were dealt you have the opportunity to change it.

Summer Skate Jam 2013

by @ Saturday, June 8th, 2013. Filed under Men in Suits, Music

Almost every year I pick a Summer Skate Jam.  This year it’s Get Lucky by Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams.  Not only is it a catchy disco throwback tune, but the lyrics hit home as I work on Me 3.0

Like the legend of the phoenix
All ends with beginnings
What keeps the planet spinning
The force from the beginning
We’ve come too far to give up who we are
So let’s raise the bar and our cups to the stars

Pharrell is also today’s Man in a Suit.  I hadn’t planned on posting one, but another baby popped up in my newsfeed.

Listen to Get Lucky

Listen to Pharrell chat about his Daft Punk experience

…and we’re back

by @ Sunday, June 2nd, 2013. Filed under employment, Men in Suits, observations on life

I have once again taken life into my own hands, shaken it like a snow globe, and I am waiting for the bits to settle.  Since I last checked in:

  1. I resigned from my nanny job and sent my tiny baby to school.
  2. I took a job as a personal assistant/bookkeeper.
  3. I sold my small business (Clothing Hospital)
  4. I decided I was going to write a book on a topic I don’t know much about, but it involves spending time with my awesome mom and working with some other creative badasses.
  5. I resigned from my personal assistant job (I determined that working for a dude is not my thing.  And I mean dude in the most literal sense, not like the way that M and I refer to most people).

So yes, there is very little time for Men in Suits, or anything for that matter, as I work on Me 3.0

If you are curious about what this version of me is up to.  I would check out my other blog at Spinsta.net

So now, let’s talk about Men in Suits.  Recent discovery  Ryan Lewis.  His partner in crime Mackelmore distracted me from his hotness.   I dream of men in suits who happen to be DJ/producer types.

Today’s Man in a Suit: John Cusak

I’m closing out 80s week with John Cusack. If only he were wearing a suit when he stood at the window with a boom box over his head.
