Firstly I must admit I have been lazy and busy why I havent added anything on my blog for months… For this I am sorry
Sharing a little of Henry
Now I saw Adele’s music video (who is my to be wife) which was released yesterday 29th September 2011. Really like videos like this and it suits her. Now the reason I am even blogging about this video is because I had done one of myself and well this song hit home for me. Without going into too much details this song connected with me. I didnt show much people simply because after doing the video I thought it might have made me look like what I am not (more politically correct way of putting it) I hadnt changed the lyrics to put it in my terms and well I basically played the part of Adele (before I even saw her video).
Life goes on and well I have learnt not to hold anything against anyone…. “You live when you have leart… and you learn once you have lived”
Thanks to Stef Cameron my 15yr old cousin who filmed this we spent a lot of time in the living room doing absolutely nothing.
Last year September I was asked to film the Cosy Showfor friends of a friends its was suppose to be straight “biz” nothing else. I really didnt want to do it but I only did because well August would of made it 6 month since I last worked a 9-5 (so yours truly was what you would say in a delicate way BROKE). My first show I was a bit anxious partly because i didnt know what to expect. At the time I had only known of one of the two guys that put the show on, Semo. Matthew the other guy seemed a bit of a panicky prat cause all he did was run around to confirm everything was good (which I later confirmed he actually was, naw am playing)
10 months down the line on Cosy Shows Birthday I have to give alot of respect to both guys especially Matthew, by far two of the most hardest and dedicated men I know in this country (yes I am still saying my visit to England is still just a visit I just decided while I am here I would go to university). Working with them has been a pleasure and they never hesitate to show there appreciation (I still have the New Years and Christmas card from them that I received my January pay from them). It is clear to who ever knows me for Cosy that Cosy is not my job, it has slowly taken over my life I dont just think of it every first tuesday of the month.
Here are a few clips of whats been happening at the cosy show
YOTP (Year Of The Poet) first saw G.R.E.Ed.S on youtube and thought he was really good and his video was shot really well. The poem didn’t stand out to me at first (that could simply be because I was more captivated the visuals). A month or so later he was invited to perform at the Cosy Show (which I am embarrassed to say I don’t post on my blog seeing that I film every show). He came down and blew the audience away including me. For about a week I was speaking to people about him who had the slightest interest in “poetry” and “spoken word”. I did a video which I posted of on my earlier blogs of a poet called LD Henriques.
Surprisingly he got hands on my blog and made the effort to find me and commend me on it. He went further to ask me very humbly of if I would like to work with him, at this time I was laughing because here was someone with clear talent I believed I would be able to reach after the Cosy show sending me a message on facebook about us working “funny how the world works”. Anyways week or so later he asks me to come down to a show to see him perform and maybe record and well let me not explain just click play (which am sure you already did before you read this).
Birds of a feather flock together, so without knowing me and seeing how I behave you can judge me by who I hang with. Meet the Alleyne’s, very close to me. I spent a whole weekend with them and this is basically how they are 24/7
One of my many blessings is that I am surrounded by talented people all day round, This is not the first or second video done of Emmavie by me and it aint definitely not the last. I titled it daily basis simply because this is actually what happens around me every single day. Emmavie is apart of Tr3House and is the only woman in it, she holds her ground firmly in it. With talent like this there is no stopping her, she is definitely the next big thing.
This long over due and by far not the las of Ms. Henriques on my page… so with further ado LD Henriques
I spent couple days in Paris and this has to be the coolest place I visited. In a little cafe 5 mins from the Hotel I stayed, I felt more in France in that cafe than any other place even the Eiffel Tower. Loved how they served coffee even though they were more expensive than my regular Starbucks. I just felt like recording it and I even started editing bits of it in the cafe. Could of done way better with the video but I hope you guys enjoy.
