let's talk about fly

it's funny that i came up with the name who's fly (as an alternative to who's sexy because my friend's e-mail filters all sex related commentary and i didn't want to get him scolded)... then *very* next day i listen to the commonwealth club's (i know a woman who works there by the way) in forum discussion on hyphy (a combination of hyper and fly). it's a music movement... more on that later.

anyway. here's the why. then there will be the guidelines.

it's not the destination. it's the journey. and the people who share the journey with you make it worthwhile.

i have the good fortune of being surrounded by amazing people. at work, i work with some of the best and brightest in the software architecture business. it's a privilege.

in the DJ scene i DJ with some very cute, very talented, and very sweet guys. they are family. say it with me.... awwwwwwwwwww (yak)

so i thought it would be good to spend a little time each week commending an artist or musician who makes the journey better. sometimes i will feature an album i'm listening to also. i could feature a gem of a music store, or something cool i came across, also. I'm going to tell you exactly what I like about it and why.

the guidelines

1. It has to be someone i know or know of. This eliminates your 2nd cousin twice removed Bobby-Sue in Nebraska. Sorry kidz.

2. I have to have a digital image.

3. You can definitely nominate/submit people that we both know but you have to get me a picture and the why behind it.

4. My friend astutely pointed out that there should be guys *and* girls. There will be. I swear. Again. Get me your freaking pictures!

That's it. Who's fly starts officially next week on a schedule. I'm going to do this week officially today (including my sweet italian friend, Simone). Sometime Sunday night/Monday morning it goes up. This is PST we are talking about. West coast rulz.
