Minneapolis: BIG Things POPPIN!

19 02 2011

Reflecting on today….***sighs….  If you only knew how amazing some of my days can be!

I was humbled and honored to have a great role in an incredible event friends!  Today would you believe all roads led me to a swanky “invite only” event held at the amazing headquarters of one of my hometown’s most sparkling gems, Best Buy Corporate Headquarters!

This place attracts some major music industry artists to Minnesota, it is a traditional trip for breaking artists to come to Best Buy to perform and sign the big deals that place their music in Best Buy stores everywhere….ya betta ask about BB.  🙂  The place is DOPENESS!   Just look at Justin Bieber at Best Buy Minnesota!

…heard Lil Wayne was there a few weeks ago with Baby giving away mini ipods filled with his entire catalog! Read the rest of this entry »

Did you Receive An Invite?

31 01 2011

There is an exclusive party going on in February in MinneApple-baby!  I actually handpicked 40 of my most fabulous Twin Citians to be on the list.  There is a rumor that a major Hollywood star will be in attendance.  I would have signed a Confidentiality Agreement…but it never arrived.  So anyway… they know I got a big mouth.  But you didn’t hear “ANEEEE” of this from me. If you did not receive an invite….you betta ask somebody FAST.  They will be cutting the fat all this week.  Bye.  Hurry.

YES! 2011 is about cleaning up OUR city!

From Jerry McAfee:

“My brothers and sisters I regretfully share with you, that I cannot support the council on Black Minnesotans Martin Luther King Program this Monday, The Board has to go, for they do not represent the masses ……….This has nothing to do with Robin for she is an awesome person!

I RESPECT that!  Now I know there are some more local organizations that need to be rightfully exposed (kandiapolis@live.com) for what they are…..INEFFECTIVE in helping the community they are receiving GRANT money to aid.  COME ON Twin Citians!

Here is some of my favorite J. Mac work:


Excerpt from upcoming Kandi-apolis  column:

“Now let’s get down to business.  People can we get one thing straight? Haters, “hate” for no reason.  Being a responsible and concerned defender of the community (you love) and asking questions about suspected B.S. and shadiness does not make anyone a hater.  So speak up!  The Twin Cities has a national reputation for our “activist” minded citizens, let’s really step it up in 2011.”
