Beautiful Night

BEAUTIFUL NIGHT

My friend James Bond (yes, his real name) had an event with David Beckham.  My man James owns Undefeated (of ENTOURAGE fame) and they are collaborating on a sneaker line for Adidas.  So this was the party.

I get there, thereís a line down the block.  Press and red carpet in full effect.  I hit my man on the text, he gives me the name to drop, and I get in. 

Inside, thereís a DJ spinning with a live trumpet player blowing.  I see Lupe Fiasco, actors from the cast of MODERN FAMILY and GREYíS ANATOMY, Quincy Jones and three of his daughters, Snoop Dogg, Eva Longoria, CiaraÖIím sure there were folks Iím forgetting and folks I didnít recognize.  Plenty of pretty people and free drinks.

James introduces me to David Beckham and his wife Posh.  They seem very nice, especially David, who seems very relaxed and well mannered. I know he must be cool because thereís no way James would work with anyone who isnít, no matter who they are.  Itís a nice look for everybody.

I sit down next to Quincy Jones.  He gives me a bear hug and kiss on the top of head.  I introduce James Bond and his wife Karen (a major artist herself) to Quincy.  Q and I then talk business for a while, then Eva Longoria stops to chat with Q so I give her my seat. 

I talk with one of the actresses I just worked with on a TV show.  After working with me for the week she wanted to know who I was so she googled me. 

Then I meet a young man who was an extra in HOUSE PARTY and he tells me about all the celebs heís met and bedded since then.  Heís doing well and Iím happy for him.

I meet Kanyeís ex Alexis, the fashion designer.  She seems nice, a quiet young lady, very pretty. 

Jamesí wife Karen is a major artist herself, and I talk with her and a gallery dealer. 

I pass on the food because Iíve got a vegan meal at home.  For most the night has just begun but I head home; I got to take my daughter to school in the morning and prep for my directing gig next week after that.

My wife and I discuss Halloween costumes for our daughter and whether a trampoline in the backyard will wear out my son so that he sleeps through the night. 

For a lot of people in my business, that would be an unremarkable night. But Iím grateful that I still enjoy what a lot of people take for granted.

Thanx for sharing, Reg. 
Your enthusiasm is so refreshing.

You forgot to mention where you discussed doing the Black Panther movie soundtrack with that great composer named Quincy Jones! (Hint Hint)


You of course told him that BP needs his own theme like Luke Skywalker and Storm needs one like Princess Leia but when they are on the same screen together it should be musically fused into oneness!


Bluezulu: "Please stay on topic or I'll padlock this thread too!"

Flex Hectic: "My bad!"


Hope you had fun at the party Reggie but don't forget to work it every chance you get!


George Lucas: "John Williams gave Star Wars a pulse!"

Bluezulu: "FLEEEEEEX!"

Flex Hectic: "OK I'm done!"
