I’m a serial water drinker when I go out dancing. It usually goes something like, shot of tequila, a whiskey ginger and then 14 consecutive glasses of water with lime. How else would do you think I could make it out till 5AM? 8AM? Water, water, WATER, kids!!! The blur you see here is not a tipsy topsy hostess, it’s just that we were dancing so fast, you can’t keep up. And that my Canon point-and-shoot thinks it is God.

As DJ stevetek put it when I wanted to retake this completely blurred shot we got of The Get Down crew: Y U MAD GURL?


“The blur is the best.”

Of course. I had almost forgotten, he was right. The blur IS the best!


With the blur, it’s about the essence… it’s about an emotion. We’re just all big blurs of love and energy anyway.
