DD for Life!

The rest of the weekend went by in a blur of hip-hop music, shots at the bar, running into old friends everywhere, and enjoying the spring sunshine.

Lazylegs (from Montreal) was at the competition with Tommy Gun (from San Francisco), from the Illabilities crew. Click on the link to check out a Youtube video of Lazylegs. It's well worth your time.

In case it's not clear in the picture, Tommy Gun only has one leg. Sadly, I couldn't find any videos of him online. (On a sidenote, I developped a mad crush on the crew in the background, particularly the guy in the pink hat. They made it to the final round before losing, but they won my heart. I felt like a 15-year-old girl rooting for them.)

And something that is nowhere close to the Illabilities Crew--the DD crew. Represent!

After working until 1 in the morning at The Drake, Sameer and I (with Alice in tow, since she came to meet us earlier in the night) headed down to the Mod Club to join up with the rest of the DDers for our impromptu staff party.

I lost most of the DD family, and Alice left early because she had to work in the morning, but I ran into these kids:

Nando and his friend Anthony. (I can't remember the guy in the middle's name. He was a photographer that we met outside on our way out the door.) I met Nando a year ago at CMW, on the same night that I hung out with Alice for the first time. Has it really been a year?

I'm not gonna lie, we're all looking pretty damn good here for 5 in the morning. Good work us!

Here's to hoping that my weekends are filled with less illness, and more days that I don't make it to bed until 7 in the morning.


  1. I thought "illness" in the context of hip-hop was a good thing? That Lazy Legs video was incredible!

  2. That's very true! Here's to more "illness"!

    the guy in the middle is Trevor, resident Mod photographer.

    and to be honest, it kind of feels like its been more than a year. i dunno why, but it just does. i guess its a good thing?

    but nonetheless, good times, good times....

    (but there should've been an after-party involved in the night. it was 7am as i was driving home, and i had my shit cranked in my truck and was still dancing in my seat. i was ready for more.)
