Move over, Mr. Big!

BSS participating in Exchange campaign.

We are proud to announce our involvement with the Sex and the District campaign, beginning with the official launch on Fri, Oct 12. 

The Sex and the District campaign was initiated by Chris Lee and Donovan Robinson over at Vantage Studios to promote Winnipeg’s Exchange District as a safe and viable nightlife destination with a plethora of boutiques, dance studios, living space, cafes, lifestyle retail spots, restos and pubs – OK, ONE pub – the King’s Head!  Still the closest thing to NYC’s Meatpacking District we’ve got!

It’s goin’ to be mad hectic (yr face is is too, sweetdiva!) in the Exchange that day – incl a shutdown of McDermot St – with each boutique throwing their own parties, fashion shows at The Empire, Desire and the Exchange Event Centre, bands playing in Old Market Square and the SITD street team scouring the area with schwag galore.  To add to that, the BSS will be all up in the Exchange that day playing  in Old Market Square from 3-5pm and capping off the day with a special Sex and the District edition of WTF?!- double punctuation & questionable grammar be damned!

There will also be a wristband for purchase that will gain you free entry into all the clubs as well as our WTF? party.

Look for a sched of events on the SITD site or on Facebook event page. As soon as the location of the WTF? party is finalized, we’ll let you know.

Don’t forget:

Rock throws ‘bows at VMAs.

‘member when Tommy Lee and Kid Rock started throwing ‘bows, er bitchslaps…uh, sorry…one bitchslap & a
right cross during Alicia Keys‘ VMA performance? 

Here’s Lee’s official statement as posted on his website:

“Yeah!! … I am minding my own biz having a great time with my
friend Criss Angel (magician) and watching the MTV awards in the front
row saying hello to all my friends……Pamela comes and sits on my lap who
I love and adore….and also say hello to my friend Travis Barker and his
wife!…..and i get a text from another friend P. Diddy and he says come
sit with me…..and he’s sitting with Miss HOT Megan FOX so I go over and
sit with P! Not a minute later and Alicia Keys starts her amazing
performance….(“I apologize sweetie…..I had nothing to do with the timing
and disrespect”)……back to the stupid-ness!!….so….. I get a tap on the
shoulder from Kid Pebble…I stand up and embrace him with a semi hug and
say “Hey dude…What up”?? He punches me in the face…..well if ya wanna
call it that!?….more like a bitch slap!…….Wuss!! Anyway….i go to knock
this jealous country bumpkin the f$%k OUT….and before I can have a
meeting with my fist and his ugly ass mug ….security guards… grab me and
haul my ass outta the award show! So I’m fine and of course leave to my
room with police and owner of the Palm’s George Maloof……the rest is
paper work and bullshit!… Anyway…… I would like to apologize to Alicia
and George and MTV for the disrespectful bullshit caused by a piece of
shit called Kid Pebble!!
Much Love always!!…..Tommy!!”

Such deplorable behaviour for someone mentored by D-Nice.  😉

Kanye vs 50 in downtown Wpg.

Turns out Kanyeezy has an edge on Fiddy @ the CDPlus in Winnipeg Square.

Went to go cast my ballot today. Count for Curtis @ 12:44 was (count ’em) two. Two copies. Come 4:30 the count was @ six – yes, six. When I asked the employee how Graduation was doing, the employee said, “a whole lot more than two.”


Facebook gone wild again.

What is the dilly w Fbook?! Today, Ofie sent a friendly likkle Grand Analog msg & it sent 5x…wtf? Anyone else out there having the same ish w sending msgs? Mr. Zuckerberg?

Anyway, the Slo Coach express will be rollin’ through again with another Analog show on Sept 14 with a slot @ the Winnipeg Ska & Reggae Festival – appearing at King’s Head Pub, 120 King St. They’re currently enjoying the spot @ the top of the national college radio rap chart, they’re collecting accolades left & right, online and in real time and they have given you yet another pair of glasses of which to view rap music. Dig it.

Keep your eyes and ears peeled for details on two new fall party concepts:

International Bundown and S.O.S.

Both experiences are strictly ABC (Another Bundown Creation). Details to follow.

Facebook gone wild.

Not exactly wild.  Just glitch-y. 

 Yesterday, 11 msgs were sent fr the Funk Bundown event pg on Fbook in error.  Msgs fr Q & Face were sent out that raised a bit of a sh!tstorm.  Threw an apologetic wall post up w a brief explanation on what happened.  Further to that: why is it so hard to get tech help on Fbook?!


Funk Bundown: RED is tonite!!!

Funk Bundown: RED

Can’t believe we’re already @ the last FB!

 To think, it all started with an errant convo inside Wpg Sq re: the sorry state of Wpg’s nightlife scene.

Three parties later, we have est the brand and the name Funk Bundown is as household as yr linoleum and we’ve added the Soulacious Saturdays brand to the CV, as well.  More to come: International Bundown and S.O.S. to name a couple.  What’s that?  Heh, heh.  You’ll find out soon.  In the meantime…
