That’s What She Saied

This weekend Alia came over and rearranged my bedroom furniture. She brought a rhubarb cake and told me to clean my room. And then I did. She is a true blue friend like that.  We started DJing together many years ago and co-founded the Ladies’ Beverage Room, an all-female DJ collective that laid some important groundwork for each of us. She is one of those rare someones who I always feel in tune with whether we are down & bitter & winterized – or fiddling with wires & blowing up speakers & staying up too late together. She is bold and brilliant and beautiful.

She asked me to recreate this image by Baltimore photographer Glenford Nunez (TYP Photography) with her as the subject. I was into it the idea and we made it happen.

She made the crown and I made the lights flash.
