Here is a sneak peek from a live performance of Cody Chestnutt with flautist harmonizing simultaneously! His interaction with his audience is an experience to remember. Check this out. The full length video will follow on youtube, subscribe and stay tuned!

 

Hip Hop Retreat Week was about bringing people that are aspiring as well as established together for the culture. Many media personalities, artists, producers, dj’s, hosts, industry professionals, and curators came together for the first annual hip hop retreat week in Brooklyn which lasted 5 days but had events before during and after for those who are like minded. I had the pleasure of being a panelist as well as a moderator during HHRW 2016, and i look forward to next year and all to come!

 

This is part one of the podcast panel, where we spoke about going beyond radio/podcasts, and about the latest tastemakers.

I had the pleasure of attending a performance and DJ set by legendary Talib Kweli at Center Stage not long ago, he performed after Cody Chestnutt and the live flautist. Jazz the beatman and Talib kweli put on quite a show despite some technical difficulties. Talib pumped out some of the best music and had the crowd hype, and made sure to perform in between. Here are the sneak peeks from that night. Full videos to be up soon on www.youtube.com/jackiedamodel make sure you subscribe!

 

 

 

 

While I am up on an opposite sleep schedule I want to take the time to say that I enjoyed working with, learning from, and teaching others in this industry since 2003/2005. So many levels to this. I made sure to invest in myself, my skill-set, and my craftsmanship and artistry my whole life. I only respect others who know the grind, and have shed blood sweat and tears for what they believe in. I don’t congratulate lazy or self proclaimed people, never fuel that mess!. I was injured about four years ago and underwent 3 surgeries and countless procedures. Prior to that, I had other health scares and issues that required surgery or medical care. I have always worked through everything, and gone above and beyond for others as well as my own passions. Never asking for anything in return. I believe in the culture of art, music, entertainment, and film. most importantly I believe in myself. I live every day as productively as possible, so when I have an opportunity I TAKE IT. When I was bed bound for a few years and in doctors 24/7 I had to make a decision. Do I let this conquer my life? Do I let depression and anger over situations I cannot control ruin everything I worked so hard for? NO. I chose to focus on better health, and managing my pain and obligations and begin re-creating my path again. Just because I haven’t been VISUALLY SEEN doesn’t mean that I ever stopped living for my dreams and those I love.
 
If you have ever had a time where you thought the world was crushing you, and you felt cornered or wanted to give up but didn’t…I want to hear from you. I want to begin having these conversations. I need to speak to the people who need to be uplifted, or can possibly enlighten and uplift others. I want to help you share your testimonial.
 
This is my testimonial, and this is the bare minimum of everything I went through and am still going through.
 
I love everyone who loves me, and I support you!. If you have a goal, it is best to make plans to achieve it. Don’t ignore what your heart is screaming for! – Jackie also known as Mivida JDM

Lately the WWE has been engaging in more gossip than actual match entertainment. Former Monday night raw general manager A.J. Lee was allegedly having relations with pro wrestler John Cena, therefore leading to a public scandal.

CENA AND AJ LEE

Monday Night raw managing supervisor Vicki Guerrero “blew up their spot” when she pulled audio, video, and photo of them engaging in intimate relations and showed the WWE viewers. She and A.J. Lee were close to forgetting about professionalism and having a cat fight.

VICKIE GUERRERO AND AJ LEE FACEDOWN

Although it is a scandal and people love drama, it has taken up too much time on the slot booked for wrestling matches, and is now a factor in upcoming matches between wrestlers involved in scandal and Vickie’s favorite employees.

The upcoming pay per view match “tables ladders and chairs” (TLC) will be a highly anticipated match where Ziggler could lose his “money in the bank” if Cena wins. Vince McMahon WWE  Chairman and CEO has already pushed Vickie Guerrero to select the opponents in upcoming matches based on the controversy and gossip. This is no longer based on physical strengths and talent…is WWE taking a turn for the worst for drama purposes?..

Let’s hear your feedback!

Cheers!
