Racial BDSM, on the other hand, takes it to one of my limits, IMO. Here are some excerpts from the article:
"begun to engage in what is called 'race play' or 'racial play' -- that is getting aroused by intentionally using racial epithets like the word 'nigger' or racist scenarios like a slave auction. "
(Bond refers to Mike Bond, a Racial BDSM proponent)
"During his workshop, Bond told the audience about his own history. He first considered race play when a partner asked if it was humiliating for him as a black man to bow before her, a white woman. He hadn't thought about it before. 'But if that made it more embarrassing, ' he said, 'then I was all for it.'
On the panel with Bond were three white women he has played with. They emphasized that race play isn't about hate. For one woman calling Bond 'nigger' was just another bad name that aroused him. But another woman, who is Jewish, said it took time and encouragement to be able to relax with race play. After the talk came the demonstration: A woman dressed in a business suit and planted in the audience heckled Bond, then grabbed him by the collar and threw him down, all the while yelling about what gave Bond the right to criticize 'her people' (rednecks)."
I don't have any words for now. I do know that I don't want togo there when I'm in the bedroom. Too much blood going in both directions...something has to suffer for it.

Happy Birthday Ish. People came from far and wide to celebrate your birthday. We all had good food and fun. The top floor at Madame X is the only way to celebrate. The lounge with the nice soft couches were perfect to relax and talk in like adults. Maroons is a fantastic restaurant as well, with top of the line service. What else can be said?
UPDATE: The link is fixed, okay
I shouldn't even be typing this; I've got an unorganized apartment, work tasks spilling over to my home life, a load or two of laundry at the laundramat. I'm just keeping in practice. With that said, I'm out the door!

Jay Lewis at Maroons, a nice Jamaican restaurant in Chelsea. People need to go there; it's a fantastic place with good food that can handle large groups, a rarity in NYC.
All these parents conceiving in September - October leading to all these June babies. I've got about 5 birthdays to observe/check out/sing at from now until July. And that doesn't count the random person's party I'll probably run into while taking a break from class with my good friend Patron.

I got the listening from eMusic, my favorite music download service. For only 20 bucks a month, I get 90 tracks from a pretty large catalog of non top-40 music. These are VBR MP3s with no DRM; no restrictions, they're yours to keep. You won't find all the latest releases from the hottest artists (according to radio) on there, but I'm not looking for that anyway. If you were looking for an obscure demo or live performance by your favorite non mainstream artist though, you've come to the right place. It's also emerged as a distributor for smaller labels. If anyone wants to try it out, leave a comment on the page.
