Meet MINNESOTA TWINS Centerfielder #70 BYRON BUXTON!!!

Friday, during the bottom of the fourth inning in a home game against the ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS, he crushed a fly ball deep into centerfield at TARGET FIELD that is located in downtown MINNEAPOLIS, MN.

As the ball bounced off of the back wall, and the Diamondbacks struggled to field the hit, he flew around the bases to score an Inside-the-Field HOME RUN.

BYRON BUXTON also broke his own record by making it from home plate to home plate in only 13.85 seconds.

KRIS, KIM, KYLIE, KOURTNEY, KENDALL, & KHLOE On THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER MAG!!!



Mom KRIS JENNER and her five daughters KIM KARDASHIAN, KYLIE JENNER, KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN, KENDALL JENNER, and KHLOE KARDASHIAN speak on the evolution of THE KARDASHIAN DECADE 2007 - 2017 as they cover the new issue of THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER Magazine!!!

On September 24, E! will air a 90-minute special presentation celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the blockbuster RealiTV series, KEEPING UP With The KARDASHIANS.

How did this all happen???

Here are some interview interludes:
Kris Jenner (star, executive producer) Before the show, I was managing Bruce's speaking career and personal appearances.
Kim Kardashian (star, executive producer) I was going to [Pierce College], and after school I would go work the cash register at our store, Dash. This all happened when I was 27 …
Kendall Jenner (star) That's so crazy because I'm not even 27. We've lived the same amount of time of the same thing, but I'm not even the age you were when you started.
Kourtney Kardashian (star, executive producer) We had talked to producers about doing a show about the three of us running the store, Dash, where Khloe and I would do the day-to-day, and Kim would come in as a stylist. It didn't go anywhere.
Khloe Kardashian (star, executive producer) I don't think we knew what we were even saying yes to. Everything was just super-fast. Kim and my 

Kylie Jenner (star) I feel like I've been hiding myself and my personal life for a really long time, so I thought it was time to do this show and hopefully be a little more understood.

Ryan Seacrest (executive producer) Everyone was talking about The Osbournes, and I said to my development executive Eliot [Goldberg], "Let's try to find something in this world and take it to E!"


Ted Harbert (then-CEO of E! Networks) Just like anybody else, I knew of the family through [O.J. Simpson attorney] Robert Kardashian. There was a bit of the stuff with Kim hanging around Paris Hilton and, of course, the fun with Ray J [who made a sex tape with Kim]. That was sort of world news.
Damla Dogan (senior vp development & programming, E!) They were just crossing over into pop culture territory, especially Kim. She had a look that wasn't on TV at the time. She wasn't stick thin, and that was relatable.
Gil Goldschein (CEO and chairman, Bunim/Murray Productions) Within 24 to 36 hours, I did a deal with E!, and we were in preproduction early the following week.
Jeff Jenkins (co-president of entertainment & development, Bunim/Murray) During our first meeting, Kris said, "How can we make this successful?" And I said, "Share everything." In other documentary series, you're following a football star or a rock star; in this case, sharing is the career.
Brian Dow (former agent for the Kardashians) There was a lot of authenticity. If you look at the rest of the marketplace at the time, other reality stars were showing you their "character" and were more guarded.

I LOVE 2 EAT #167 - NEW ORLEANS FOOD & SPIRITS!!!

Image result for new orleans food and spirits new orleans

While Yours Truly CCG was enjoying the people, places, things, sights, and sounds of his hometown of NEW ORLEANS, on Friday, August 4, at about 3:30 PM CST, decided to use Facebook to reach out for suggestions on from where one could dine on a good NEW ORLEANS PO-BOY SANDWICH!!!

A wonderful friend whom CCG had not seen in many years reached back with this suggestion. Because she lived near Dad's home, Ya Boy had the rare BLESSING of having a beautiful dinner companion for the evening.


NEW ORLEANS FOOD & SPIRITS

210 OLD HAMMOND HIGHWAY
METAIRIE, LA 70005
504.828.2220

MONDAY - THURSDAY: 11:00 AM - 9:00 PM CST
FRIDAY - SATURDAY: 11:00 AM - 10:00 PM
SUNDAY: 11:00 AM - 9:00 PM

Conveniently located in the BUCKTOWN neighborhood of the city of METAIRIE,  and; just across the parish line from the city of New Orleans, NEW ORLEANS FOOD & SPIRITS is a great location for a multitude of affairs - from a casual dinner between friends, to a family gathering, to a dressed-up night on the town, to a place for a gentleman to pop the question to his lady.

We arrived at about 6:45 PM, and were immediately seated directly adjacent to a lovely glass wall that allowed for an excellent view of the courtyard. The house was buzzing with activity and appeared to be at about three-fourths capacity full.

NEW ORLEANS FOOD & SPIRITS MENU is a smorgasbord of Traditional New Orleans - Creole - Cajun Cuisine accented with contemporary cosmopolitan flair. Location dictates that they are heavy on the seafood, yet; they also have a fine offering of steaks and chops.


VOODOO CRAWFISH ROLLS


Because my lovely friend had previously visited, she suggested the VOODOO CRAWFISH ROLLS (photo above) as a shared appetizer.

OMG... Melt in your Mouth, Not in your Hands... OOPS; does somebody else use that line???

It's an Egg Roll, no; it's Crawfish Étouffée, No; it's Crawfish Étouffée inside of an Egg Roll, NO; it's a VOODOO CRAWFISH ROLL!!!

Oh My SWEET LITTLE CREOLE BABY JESUS!!!



SEAFOOD GUMBEAUX


CCG decided to go with a cup (small size) of SEAFOOD GUMBEAUX (photo above) and a BLACKENED CATFISH PO-BOY (photo below) for dinner.

Gumbo NICE!!!

The foundation of a really satisfying gumbo is found within the ROUX. This particular roux was a nice even brown with a textured thickness right between chicken soup and beef, was well-seasoned to a good old-fashioned New Orleans spicy kick, and; contained generous portions of shrimp and crabmeat.

The Blackened Catfish Po-Boy was a skillet-hot, well-seasoned, flaky-tender, evenly-blackened  7-ounce Catfish Filet accented with a slice of Swiss Cheese on 8-inch cut French Bread loaf spread with Remoulade Sauce.

For those like CCG who enjoy their po-boys fully-dressed, your garnishing of lettuce, tomato, and pickle are presented on the side.

SWEET!!!


BLACKENED CATFISH PO-BOY with REMOULADE SAUCE


The evening only contained one slight misstep. My friend ordered Potato Salad that did not arrive with her meal. Due to the increased dinner crowd, she had to wait.

Other than that moment, the young lady that was our server was EXCELLENT.

GOOD FOOD, GOOD FRIENDS, GOOD CONVERSATION, GOOD LOCATION, GOOD SERVICE, GOOD TIMES!!!

CAMERON DAVIS & GEORGE MYRIE On BEARDED COVER Of ROLLING OUT MAG!!!



Earlier during Summer 2017, the good folks at ROLLING OUT Magazine collaborated with the folks at LUSTER'S S-CURL to present The ULTIMATE ROLLING OUT BEARD COVER MODEL SEARCH!!!

Here are some interview interludes with the Contest Winner, Featured Barber, and Contest Coordinator/ Organizer:




ULTIMATE ROLLING OUT BEARD COVER MODEL SEARCH Winner CAMERON DAVIS

How did you hear about the beard program?
I heard about the program through a friend back in Houston who owns a beard company. Also, I heard about it from family members, friends, who subscribe to the email blast and follow rolling out religiously. So, I heard about it through them, and I heard it from about two or three people in one day, so I figured it was probably the universe talking to me.
What has been the highlight of your trip, so far?
The highlight of my trip so far has been definitely seeing parts of New York that I always wanted to see. Being my first time here in NY, seeing the lights in Times Square, taking the subway for the first time, eating authentic NY food … people talk about it all the time, so those are some things that I’ve really enjoyed.
What was it like working with George? 
Working with George has been amazing. He’s a spectacular dude in terms of what he does. Putting these things together, fashion, the brand, and everything. The Bearded Dapper Gents is a movement, and I know it’s something that people say often, but it really is. So, hopefully, it’s something that continues to grow.





FEATURED Barber KENNY DUNCAN

How did you become so well established in the industry?
Well, I’m known as a national educator, but I call myself a local barber who just loves what he does. I believe in consistency. As long as you remain consistent, and maintain relationships with people, I think everything else takes care of itself. I just focus on making sure I maintain consistency and continue working on being a better person … then that itself will allow me to be utilized and be valuable in many different spaces.
When you became a barber, did you see yourself coming this far? 
Funny thing is, I didn’t even want to be a barber. I just told people that I was going to be a barber to get me through college. As a young barber, growing up in Philadelphia, I aspired to be an accountant or an engineer. When I applied to college, I got into schools I wanted to, and it was in April 2001 when I decided to take a semester off. I was at Temple University, Fox School of Business. I wanted to take a semester off and figure out exactly what I want to do because at the time I was cutting hair and making $36K a year, part-time, but I was entering a career as an entry level accountant where I would be making $40K a year [full-time] … I needed to figure things out. When I took time off, the relationships I cultivated through clients that are in the music industry allowed me to be paid to be in spaces where other people would have to pay to gain admission.




FEATURED Influencer GEORGE MYRIE

How did this project get started? 
What initially happened was Terrance Pratt of rolling out reached out. He said, “Hey, George. I have this idea.” Naturally, I said, “What’s the idea?” He told me that he wanted to do a shoot with myself with a bearded man as a contest, and the winner of the contest would be in the shoot. In addition to that, he has a client [Luster] that wanted to be in the shoot too for their product Free Flow. From there, we organized everything, coordinated between emails, text messages, phone calls, and now we’re here.
So what did you do to prepare for today?
[There] was a lot of back and forth between myself and Terrance. A lot of last-minute changes, a few different calls that we had to put in. [There] was a lot of planning.
What is the importance of these types of projects for our community?
The importance of these types of projects for our community is beyond recognition because we put out positive images of Black men so other Black men can see these positive images of Black men. If you Google Black men, you’re not going to see that. Luster taking the initiative of this project and wanting to shoot us and glorify us is great. Very important.
