MY HEART GOES OUT TO DJ AM & HIS KITH & KIN



This is such sad news, especially after he and Travis Barker survived a deadly plane crash. LET'S BE A LITLE KINDER TOO EACH OTHER, BECAUSE AS THIS WEEK HAS PROVEN, YOU JUST NEVER KNOW!!!

My condolences.

ACCORDING TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

" NEW YORK - DJ AM, the sought-after disc jockey who became a celebrity in his own right with high-profile romances and a glamorous lifestyle and survived a plane crash just months ago, was found dead Friday at his apartment. He had a history of drug problems.

Police found a crack pipe and prescription pills in the Manhattan apartment, according to a law enforcement official, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing. Paramedics had to break down the door to the apartment before they found him, shirtless and wearing sweatpants, in his bed at about 5:20 p.m. (2120 GMT), the official said.

A friend had called police to say he was unable to get into the home in the trendy SoHo neighborhood. There was no evidence of foul play, and a medical examiner will determine the DJ's cause of death.

DJ AM, whose real name was Adam Goldstein, had talked openly about past addictions to crack cocaine, Ecstasy and other drugs, but he claimed he had been drug-free for years, even swearing off cigarettes.

His spokeswoman, Jenni Weinman, said the circumstances surrounding his death were unclear. She pleaded for privacy for his family.

In October, MTV was to debut his new reality show, "Gone Too Far," in which he and concerned families staged interventions for drug abusers. In a recent interview with the AP, he talked about holding a crack pipe for the first time in years for the show and said he felt as though he had an angel on his shoulder for surviving so much turmoil.

Last year, he was badly hurt in a South Carolina plane crash that killed four people and seriously injured rock musician Travis Barker.

MTV did not have an immediate comment on whether the show would air.

Goldstein, 36, was a deejay for hire who performed at Hollywood's most exclusive parties and was admired by music aficionados. He also was famous for past relationships with the reality TV star Nicole Richie, the daughter of singer Lionel Richie, and with actress-singer Mandy Moore.

Goldstein was critically injured last September when a Learjet crashed on takeoff in Columbia, South Carolina. The plane was transporting Goldstein and Barker, a drummer for the pop punk band Blink-182, after a performance; the pair had formed the duo TRVSDJ-AM.

Barker and Goldstein were burned, though Barker was injured more severely. Goldstein had to get skin graft surgery, but about a month later he was performing again, joining Jay-Z on stage.

At the time, he told People magazine he was grateful to survive.

"I can't believe I made it," he said. "I've prayed every night for the past 10 years. There's a lot more to thank God for now. ... I was saved for a reason. Maybe I'm going to help someone else. I don't question it. All I know is I'm thankful to be here."

Goldstein rose to fame several years ago as highly sought-after DJ whose beats kept the dance floor packed and clubgoers hypnotized. He was known for his deft mashups, a blend of at least two songs, and performed not only in clubs but on grand stages, performing earlier this year at the Coachella music festival in Indio, California.

He was to be one of the playable characters in Activision's "DJ Hero," a rhythm video game from the makers of "Guitar Hero" that uses a turntable-shaped controller. The game is set for release Oct. 27.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of DJ AM, who was a tremendous talent, a trusted partner and friend to 'DJ Hero,'" said Tim Riley, vice president of music affairs for Activision. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family. AM was instrumental in the making of 'DJ Hero,' and we hope that his work on the game will be a fitting tribute to his creative spirit and musical talent."

Celebrities and fans instantly shared their reactions to his death on Twitter, where "RIP DJ AM" was the No. 1 topic Friday.

"I'm stunned. Rest in peace Adam," singer-songwriter Josh Groban posted.

"I'm sorry to loved ones," musician and video director Pete Wentz wrote. "So unexpected."

Singer John Mayer wrote: "We're supposed to lose our friends to time, at an age when we're ready to agree to the terms of having lived a long life. Not now."

Representatives for Moore and Barker didn't immediately return telephone messages seeking comment on the DJ's death.

AALIYAH!!! WE MISS YOU BABYGYRL!



Such Composure, Elegance, & Realness - NO ONE in the Industry even compares. 8 years gone by so fast...








Keshia Chante, the Canadian singer who'll b playing Aaliyah in the Biopic,
I actually like this song, especially when she says

"'Cause I ain't even want you, but you made me want you, now one in one is... "


What do you think Luvies???




THE ORIGINAL - AALIYAH DANA HAUGHTON


WOW!!! In reminiscing, she has SUCH an Impressive Catalog of work for a Relatively short period of Time. The Thing about Aaliyah though, she was a self-proclaimed Pefectionist, so any time she dropped something, it was the Truth; Quality indeed. Which is SORELY MISSED in This Day and Age...

A Brief Aaliyah Video Retrospective:

"ONE IN A MILLION:, literally...


I LOOOOOOOVED "4 PAGE LETTER"
Timabaland and Missy really tapped into the Collective Unconsciousness when they "created" this beat ("created" because we Really just Channel, things already exist, we just Express them) which explains to me why this song as felt so familiar to me, kinda like just waking froma Dream...

I once wrote this dude a 4 Page Letter, poetic yes, good idea, no, but he was gracious lol, ahhh glorious adolescence.




NEW AALIYAH BLOG!!! Didn't wanna blow up face book with a million videos

ASTRO WEATHER: THE NODES KNOWS

RISE TO THE OCCASION THROUGH YOUR NORTH NODE!


The MASSIVE IMPORTANCE of the Astrology's Lesser Known Nodes aka Karmic Indicators:

-courtesy astrology.com

" The two nodes of the Moon -- the north and the south node -- play a very important part in astrology. The nodes are not planetary bodies, but mathematical points that take into account the relationship between the Sun, Moon, and Earth at the time of our birth. In the zodiac, they are always directly opposite each other and together they form the nodal axis.

The lunar nodes point to our personal karmic imbalance. The astrological theory behind the nodes of the Moon suggests that we all come into this world with some underdeveloped and overdeveloped aspects of our character. The north node represents qualities that we need to develop to find inner balance, while the south node points to personal character traits that are easy for us to fall back on. They represent life lessons that we consciously need to learn for increased happiness, fulfillment and personal success.

The nodal axis changes signs approximately every 19 months. Since December 18, 2007, the north node has been transiting through Aquarius with the south node in the opposite sign, Leo. On August 20 and 21, the nodal axis moves backward through the zodiac, and the north node moves from Aquarius into Capricorn, while the south node moves from Leo to Cancer.

Important advice for this transit: Get serious. Be brave! Work toward your goals. Instead of looking to others to take care of you, which is the south node in Cancer, north node in Capricorn means it's time to be an adult, step up, accept responsibility for both good and bad.

But remember, each planet exerts influence over certain aspects of life depending on how they are placed in your individual natal or birth charts. How will the energies of this important transit affect you?
"



A BIT MORE ON THE NORTH AND SOUTH NODES, courtesy cafeastrology.com

" Fear is associated with South Node issues. The South Node position is very often a point of great insecurity. We very much want what is represented by the South Node position, whether that is order in our lives (South Node in Virgo/6th house) or satisfaction in partnerships (South Node in Libra/7th house). However, the only way we can feel successful in these areas is through working on the qualities of the opposite sign (North Node position). We may resist doing this quite fervently, especially in the first 30 years of our lives, partly because we cannot see that letting go of some of our obsessions, and working on the polarity, will bring satisfaction to the South Node areas. Thus, the North Node represents a point of challenge and growth. One feels somewhat awkward and uncertain in the areas represented by the North Node (its sign and house). The North Node can also be considered a point of inflow. We need help with our North Node issues, and we often meet people who will help us confront these issues. "

ASTRO WEATHER: VENUS SEXTILE MERCURY




According to aol astrology:

" Explore your deepest desires now, when the passion planet Venus is sextile Mercury, the messenger -- of love! Messengers in mythology are often associated with guides, so when you see Mercury walking arm-in-arm with the lady of love and romance, you know they're leading you someplace exciting. According to Astrology romance expert Jeff Jawer, “This planetary waltz will open a rare door into the mystery of romance.” "

ASTRO WEATHER: THE 3RD, & FINAL ECLISPE IN THE SERIES



Hey Luvies,

So we are on the verge of the last eclipse, a lunar eclispe, in what I've dubbed "the grand triptych in the sky." Though we're all still spinning from all the astro-action as of late, at least we've been fortunate enough to experience these rare alignments! Just to back track, we had the first Lunar Eclipse on July 7; then a FULL Solar Eclipse, visible on the Indian "subcontinent" on July 22(July 21 for us in the States); and now this last Full Moon Eclipse, which ties into the holiday of Tu B' Av which I just described for you. Here's wishing you renewal and peace of mind, and that all the veils that are blocking your vision are lifted allowing you more clarity!

All the best Luvies!


p.s. - Here's a little about the Full Moon in Aquarius.

HAPPY TU B' AV aka THE "KABBALISTIC VALENTINE'S DAY"



Hey Luvies!

So your GYRL is a student of Kabbalah, amongst other Spiritual systems, and I just thought I 'd let you know that today is a VERY SPECIAL day, as it bears a very special energy! Ummmmm, how to describe Tu B' Av? Well it, literally translates to "the 15th of Av." Av is the Hebrew name of the month we are currently in, which in English would translate to Leo, so today is the 15th day of the month of Leo according to the Kabbalistic/Hebrew calendar, which goes in cycles of 29 and 1/2 days, corresponding to the moon's orbit of our planet. Every 15th day of a lunar month denotes the Full Moon, but this full moon, according to Kabbalah is SUPER significant because it occurs during the month of Av/Leo, which is when the life giving masculine energy of the Sun is at it's fullest, so in mirroring that, the Moon's energy is at her fullest as well. According to Kabbalah, Tu 'B Av' is the one day of the year when the masculine and feminine energies are completely balanced, and at their fullest, therefore, Kabbalists thorughout the centuries have come to denote Tu B'Av as the Day of Soulmates, or Soulmate Energy, thus "The Kabbalistic Valentine's Day." It is a really special day because of this, but not just for romance, the energy of "soulmate" can mean many different things to many different people. It definitely strengthens the area of romance, but it also strengthens familial bonds, as well as friendships, and work relationships...pretty much wherever you find yourself expressing your closest connections can benefit from today's special balancing boost of loving energy!


A More Traditonal view on Tu B' Av

THOUGH HE DENIES SAYING IT...

This is sure to squelch any future noise from Mr. West..."he must've felt and bumped his head"(in my best Sunshine Anderson voice).




Latas,
Luvies
