Tracie in Wondaland

Okay, let the updating begin!

Last weekend Kuh Reel Yuh asked if I would like to join her at a cabin up near Lake Lanier for the weekend. (This is where we had the brush with the law) The Wondaland Arts Society, where she interns, had rented a place out there and it was gonna be a good time. I couldn't pass it up. I mean, really, what else am I doing with myself?

If you're not up on Wondaland (an indie record label), I highly suggest you get to know Janelle Monae. *ripped from Wikipedia* She was first featured on the Purple Ribbon All-Star's Compilation Got Purp? Volume 2 in 2005. Her song "Lettin' Go," from this album became a cult hit and a fan favorite. Her next major feature was on OutKast's movie soundtrack for Idlewild, where she is featured on the songs "Call The Law" and "In Your Dreams."

Anywhooo, she's great (get the album on iTunes for like 5 bucks), everybody was so great. I had so much fun. Let's see, to tell it all very quickly here's what went down:

-We arrived around 8pm Saturday.
-It was just me and the interns at first.
-We all got drunk and tried to sleep a little, but...
-Around 6am, EVERYBODY else came (after a P.Diddy party)
-Around 7 (AM!!!) we barbecued
-slept a bit more
-'round 11am ate breakfast
-tripped out
-sang
-danced
-freestyled
-talked about pretty much everything
-I was the score keeper in the hypest game of Taboo I've ever been a part of (let's just say there was a small marching band involved)
-Dinner
-Went home, crunked out.

BBQ Chicken in the morning

I like how Mitch looks all "cabin-esque" with his iPhone.

AND, I finally found somebody to braid my hair. Thanks Alex!
