Coffee Adventures

Standard

Rolling Stones & Coffee “Rockin’ Morning, Champ”

Today’s coffee adventures includes an amazing, hand-me down from my boss, Rolling Stones 1972 Tour t-shirt and a hot frickin’ day. In New Orleans, it’s so hot. Like, I’m sitting in this office right now, sweating. I’m not moving period, but I’m sweating. Atleast, I have an awesome Bobbie Gentry Pandora station to help ease the heat ache!

Caffee Machiatto with Milk- Sweet Love

Today’s coffee pick is a Caffe Macchiato! It can either be a doube or triple shot of Espresso, infused with a small amount of milky foam on top!  “In Italian, Macchiato literally means ‘marked’ or ‘stained (with)’. This coffee is ‘marked’ by a drop of milk, which differentiates Caffè Macchiato from dark Caffè Espresso.Caffè Machiato has two variants: Caffè Macchiato Freddo (with cold milk) and Caffè Macchiato Caldo (with hot milk). Freddo is good if you are in hurry or can’t wait until your coffee gets to a drinkable temperature.”

Do You Believe in Past Lives?

Standard

Last night while I was utterly bored, I decided to snap some self-portraits. I slapped on some heavier makeup, turned on some Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, and Aerosmith, and started playing. I was actually shocked by the images that came out! It was like all my past lives were revealed. It was neat, fun, and exciting. It’s weird what my creative spurts, mind, and good music can do.

My Past Life: Lost & Frightened Empress

My Past Life: Rising, Soon to Be Queen of 70’s Rock n Roll

My Past Life: A Loving Groupie, Traveling with the Band

What were your past lives? What do you believe is captured by the lens?

I’m with the Band….My Soul Sista, Miss Pamela des Barres

Standard

The Original ‘Classy’ Groupie

This is Miss Pamela des Barres….my soul sister from another generation. If you haven’t read her book I’m with the Band, you’re def. missing out on an: eye-opening, non-stop entertaining, Rock n Roll making, page turner. Can you tell I love this book more than chocolate cake (that’s saying a lot)? She got to experience a free-spirited life for most of her young adult life. I just wish times could be that innocent again.

Miss Pamela is the ORIGINAL groupie. I mean, come on, she and her gang the GTO’s, were the very first group of women that traveled/lived/nurtured rock’s greatest legends. They were unlike any other thing I’ve seen, read, heard.  When I think of groupie, I automatically think of sleeping with the band, doing anything to be close to the band. But, that’s not what Miss Pamela was about. She was about honoring the men she felt gave the world beautiful music, and showing them her appreciation of their gifts. She was just attracted and loved to LOVE these men.

This is just a little run down of Miss Pamela’s adventures and highlights….YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK! Especially if you are a huge fan of classic rock (like myself). You get an intimate glance at the real rock stars themselves.

* She experienced the Whiskey A Go-Go, and other high profile clubs at their height!

*Experienced the true HIPPIE life first hand (she didn’t like it, at all)

*Got to know Mick Jagger, Jimi Hendricks, Frank Zappa, Rod Stewart, Waylan Jennings, Paul McCartney, Jimmi Page, and  Robert Plant intimately..just to drop a few names!

If you want to read a little more, here’s a link to a great interview with Miss Pamela: http://www.starpulse.com/news/Stephanie_Nolasco/2011/01/04/spending_the_night_with_miss_pamela_gr
