SPLURJJ Presents – Everyone Has a Different Beauty

The world can be a rather bleak place for most of us. It has its plot to make you believe like you’re boxed in if you enable it to. Attaining direction can be arduous while you are beset among those that lack the same as you do, you are overshadowed by pain and failure, so your mistakes become who you are because you never see anything at a better angle giving you a different outlook on it, a different beauty.

Everyone has a different beauty is a true story documentary based on the memoir of Sharif Dyson. Sharif Dyson leads us into dramas of his life where he made numerous slips and whereby he undertook to rebuild his wrongful actions.

We Are Barack Obama

I’m sure all people will remember this moment in history, where we’ve all witnessed a black educated brave man run the country and did such a noble job. This isn’t a time for blacks to unite or whites to go astray. What we’ve witnessed was, once our leader of this country Martin Luther King Jr. dream in real time. 8 years real time 8 years of love, united and under one God. The reason I say under one God because we were never threatened, killed or enslaved though we did witness the devil twist up unusual trouble to kill our joy but we were free, freed by Martin’s dream. Here’s a portion of his speech to remember.

“we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men, and white men, Jews, and Gentiles, Protestants, and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:

Free at last! Free at last!

Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

Rejoice in a manner that you allow your heart to feel strength from this ending of a victory we’ve all won and a feeling that we can live to tell our grandchildren and so forth. This doesn’t eradicate the fact that the dream became a reality it just means we have to awake and dream along with MLK and continue to live out loud what he started with his non-violent non-silent act.

My people Black people, White people and all people. Love from your heart it knows what’s right and wrong.

Vegan AJ Anderson Loves Meat

Believe it or not, fellas just because AJ Anderson is a super sexy model doesn’t mean she pitches for the other team. AJ Anderson is a free spirit with morals and boundaries. In this era, it’s really hard to find a woman that isn’t into the same-sex species.

I know a lot of men that would disagree with me on this but I’m getting tired of sharing my lady with other women. It’s become a package deal lately like it’s their damn children that you’re taking on. Am I complaining no I am not, I’m simply saying I would like to remain a one lady’s man and would hope she expects the same from me?

In my past did I find two women in my bed excitingly enticing? Yep, that was me, I’m guilty. Did I experiment a few times myself? Yes, I did! Did I enjoy it? Yes, I did. So I’m not trying to be a hypocrite who contradicts himself or anything but I have changed and I’d like my woman to change along with me.

I’m all about exploring the female body selfishly no longer trying to share her fun spots with anyone. I can remember the cartoon of Daffy Duck as a child. The episode he wanted the pearl all to himself and didn’t want anyone else to have it. Kind of how I feel at this very moment. Mine! she’s all mine!

13ac361c-8d4d-45de-80ec-f05b08eef977

When I presented to AJ, with what I was going to post she simply replied:

I’ll have to think about what I’ll say lol… men are irritating to me lol.

But I’ll never switch to women lol… I’d rather be alone.

So fellas what is it exactly that we are doing that we have become the annoying species of the two. Are we filled up on our egos like a huge helium balloon? Have we forgotten what truly being a gentleman means in this free society?

In an America that wants to own all mankind, people are now escaping to become free. Free from sex, free from life, free of rights, free of religion and worse of all free of morals. We have to take back what started off with value and add sense back to our households, so we can again stand on common ground.

 

 

 

 

Revisit AJ Anderson Interview

Become Miriam Franco

When I initially chose to relaunch Splurjj in February since it’s unique set up date of June 2005, Splurjj was propelled amid the same time Uncrate men’s website was established. I at first began with an Instagram account to showcase a portion of the coolest engineering, autos and apparatus for men. Miriam Franco had been one of the main photographers I kept my eyes on. I could see her vision and needed to showcase her on Splurjj in our specialty and photography classification for us gentlemen.

Miriam had already contacted me before I could even solicit her, to be interested in working with Splurjj in some kind of way. I couldn’t have cared less how she was included on Splurjj, simply needed to impart her vision to others. So it’s currently August 2016, evening is crawling and we are presently at last interfacing with one an other through the interview. I trust her interview rouses most and her photography discovers it’s way on one of your office or home walls. Become more acquainted with Miriam, I have.

Miriam: I can be inspired by anyone or anything.

_MG_1401sf

Splurjj: If your choice of careers were between being a pastor or politician, what would you choose? And why?

Miriam: At my brother´s having a coffee with my sister in law.

Why not sex & beer?


Splurjj: Are their particular people or designers that have influenced you?

Splurjj: What do you think are some of the most inspiring things happening in the world …. Currently?

Miriam: The most inspiring thing for me is relating to people.

_MG_0603

Splurjj: How do you overcome creative blocks?

Splurjj: What’s the best thing that ever happen to you from a result of being nice?

Miriam: Meet and keep meeting amazing people.


Splurjj: Sex & Ice cream or Football & Beer? And why?

Miriam: Why not sex & beer?

Miriam: The essential is invisible to the eyes.

Find out why AJ Anderson likes to be naked

Here’s what we know, she has minuscule sized boobs and a butt that speaks to you when you smack at it. She doesn’t sell sex, but bred with a Harriet Tubman free mind. I say Harriet because, AJ would like to free others from thinking closed minded in order to see their life’s full potential. The team at Splurjj gained an interest in AJ once we found out that her ex husband enslaved her as a wife and mother. Rebellion spoke up from AJ’s deeper being and she now reigns her entire soul.

[Soul] The make up of the mind body and spirit. AJ Anderson has gained the right, No!., The respect to live freely and to not die miserably. We actually got the face of the Nude Nerd brand to sit still long enough so we can get an interview with her. We thank you AJ and hope, pray that God continues to bless you.

“Don’t get stressed. Stress kills creativity. 😲 Be you. Have fun through it all. Give the gift of YOU to the world; don’t try to imitate anyone–that would be doing yourself and the world a disservice”.

-AJ Anderson

IMGP3032

Moment with AJ:

Splurjj: How old were you when you decided failure was not an option for you?

AJ: I don’t know my exact age when I made that decision—I’m sure my father started telling me that while I was in the womb. I have always felt that I was born to win but, like most other people, I have had my moments when I have felt defeated. It is part of life and it only serves the purpose of making us stronger as we overcome those limiting feelings and ideas.

FullSizeRender+31

Splurjj: Where in this world of ours do you find your serenity?

AJ: It’s funny because my youngest daughter’s name is Serenity so I guess I could say that I find my serenity wherever she is. No but honestly, in the gym usually. Or on my couch, or swinging in the park, or watching my kids play at the pool. I feel that peace and serenity can be found anywhere.

Splurjj: What should an image on a magazine cover do for a reader?

AJ: As a Marketing major, I think I would have to say that the objective of a magazine cover is to entice the reader to want to see more of what is inside…to ultimately purchase the magazine.

FullSizeRender+39

Splurjj: What would a reader benefit from your interview?

AJ: Well… I always hope that with any interaction, people walk away from me feeling a bit inspired, enlightened, and a bit happier.

Splurjj: Who / what inspires you? And why?

AJ: Many, many people inspire me. Really anyone who is fearlessly living out what is inside them to express. The late Maya Angelou, Lily Singh, Iyanla Vanzant, Oprah, Whoopi Goldberg, Nia Vardalos, Annette Larkins, Shonda Rimes, the late Sojourner Truth…I’m sure the list could go on and on if I kept typing.

Continued…

We all have something in us to express. Many people block their true self out of fear. I love it when people are courageous enough to be their true self. I feel that we are all individual expressions of God; God would not be fully expressed if I didn’t exist, if you didn’t exist, etc. It is a life well-spent when we live out our talents and gifts.

Splurjj: Philip Johnson once said, “I don’t know of any modest good architects.” Do you consider yourself modest or arrogant in your craft? And why?

AJ: I would say I’m a bit of both modest and arrogant. I think you have to have a certain level of confidence/arrogance to be good at what you do. But when you get overly confident—cocky—I think problems occur. I think in any profession that one chooses, you must realize that deeply, sincerely, and constantly that you are made in the image and likeness of the Creator. Therefore, all Godlike qualities are inherent in you. How can you be inferior to anyone? It isn’t possible! You not only have but you ARE life, love, wisdom, intelligence, peace, creativity, beauty, and joy—just like the highest being in this universe. The modesty comes in by realizing that is not your own doing but the Great life force that is moving in and through you.

Splurjj: If your choice of careers were between being a pastor or politician, what would you choose? And why? 

AJ: A pastor, definitely. I don’t know anything about politics and I would never want to be given the charge of being responsible for the well being of a city, state, or nation. I have a goal to be a minister or reverend of sorts in the future. Something similar to Iyanla Vanzant.

IMG_6825

Splurjj: What was that influential hardship that challenged you to keep thriving?

AJ: I am a single mother. There was one point in my life when I had to donate plasma to have enough money for food. I never want to do that again.

Splurjj: How do you know when someone has “it”?

AJ: When someone has “it,” I think there is a certain quality about them that no one can quite articulate; something about them that everyone wants more of—an energy that everyone wants to be around.

Those people are very honest about their life and their feelings. They know themselves and are very comfortable in their own skin.

Splurjj: Would you say that your work ethics incredibly insane or average? And why?

AJ: I think my work ethic varies. Sometimes it is incredibly insane, sometimes it is average, sometimes it is sub-par, honestly. It seems that whenever my work ethic is super intense, I burn out. I am working at finding a good balance.

Splurjj: How is your personality reflected in your work?

AJ: I am very eclectic. I think my work is also very eclectic. I love many different styles of photography and modeling. I have several projects in the works to try to diversify my portfolio even more.

Splurjj: Can you tell us where you exactly are right now?

AJ: Right at this moment when I’m typing? I am sitting by a pool in Atlanta while my kids and their friends swim.

Splurjj: Are there particular people or designers that have influenced you?

AJ: No designers really because I’m not really into clothes. There have been several models who are currently working and many models from the past who have influenced and inspired me: Aisha Thalia, Madzilla, Tianna Gregory, Janice Dickinson.

Splurjj: What do you think are some of the most inspiring things happening in the world …. Currently?
AJ: I love that so many people are just saying “Eff it, I’m going to do what brings me happiness.”

Splurjj: How do you overcome creative blocks?

AJ: I have found that my biggest block to creativity is stress; it is impossible to be creative while stressed. So I usually go to the gym, go hang out with friends, or read—anything that relaxes me and/or gets the gears in my brain moving.

C8918BE2-A270-4315-B879-16D8E03FB576
Splurjj: What’s the best thing that ever happen to you from a result of being nice?

AJ: Wow. So many things have happened. I suppose most of them are financial or material items. Someone gave me two laptops the other day, one for each of my kids. Someone gave me a brand new clothes dryer when mine broke. I’ve been given thousands and thousands of dollars over the years. I have had people go out of their way to help me with my children. People have bought tires or helped with auto repairs. God has definitely used other people to bless me.
Splurjj: Sex & Ice cream or Football & Beer? And why?

AJ: Ummm…. How about just sex? I don’t really care for ice cream, I can’t maintain any interest in football games, and I’ve never had an alcoholic beverage in my life.

Splurjj: If you were a company, what would be your slogan?

AJ: The slogans I use on my Instagram account are

“I don’t sell sex, I sell freedom”

and

“Live and love freely”

so I suppose it would be one of those two.

A moment with Derek Nice

From rapper to DJ turned photographer. Mr. Derek Nice is a jack of all trades. Some may argue and say a master of none. Mr. Nice has found a way to do all equally yoked and remain balanced. This guy was a true #hiphop Manhattaner in the late 80s.

image

Some would tease me and say I looked like D-nice when I was young. I’d like to thank you all who spoke so high of me around age 8 or so,  D-nice made history of his life and style which makes for a perfect Splurjj lifestyle advocate. Before we derived to this moment with Derek Nice, we wanted a vivid picture with the talented apostle of life. Not only does Derek entrepreneur in his lifestyle but he demonstrates true entrepreneurship by balancing a household, wife, family and a young daughter.

Mr. Nice demosticated spouse.
“A home fit for a king and queen.”

She said,

“Daddy, let’s take a picture.”

#twins.

Moment with D-nice:

Splurjj: What gear makes you most happy?

Derek: This is the setup that makes me happy. It’s my Leica M60 Edition camera fitted with a vintage Canon 50mm f/.95 lens. The M60 is one of the mostamazing digital cameras I’ve ever used simply because it has no screen and no exposure compensation. It was created by Audi Designs and there are only 600 in the world. Since it doesn’t have a screen, it feels like I’m shooting film again. I’ve never been a fan of continuous shooting so this camera is perfect for my style of photography.

image

Splurjj: What inspired you to buy the perfect lens?
[Photo above]

Derek: I bought the lens after visiting my buddy, photographer/director @AMandler and his wife @DeniseVasi. Anthony walked me into his home office and showed me his beautiful Leica collection. When he pulled out the Canon lens, i knew immediately that the lens was my next purchase. It’s not too sharp and the bokeh is beautiful.
Now, if you’re a photographer that needs to look at every image after you shoot it, this isn’t the set up for you.

Splurjj: What is your true love? Music or Photography?
Derek: My photography has become just as important as my music. I’m so grateful that some of my favorite people have allowed me to tell their stories through my lens.

image

Splurjj: What would be your best photo moment?
Derek: One of my favorite moments happens to be when I was in Dave’s dressing room having a conversation with these guys. I noticed Chris setting up a selfie moment and quickly grabbed my camera and shot this pic. [Photo above]

10 years ago, my life changed. I used to stand in front of the DJ booth at a club in New York City called Table 50. Every Thursday night, I watched @qtiptheabstract and @iammarkronson completely body the party and I knew that I wanted to become a club DJ. 10 years later, I’ve been on the bill with everyone from Billy Joel to @SnoopDogg. From Tao in Vegas to the Inaugural Ball for President Obama. I’m humbled that people still ask me to provide the soundtrack to their night. Music is my life. Thank you all for your unwavering support. Thank you @rocnation @skamartist @dgimanagement #Violator and @BrandNice. Thank you to all of the clubs that gave me a chance. Thank you to all of the event planners that trust me to provide the right atmosphere. Thank you @HennessyUS and #TeamHennessy. #Godspeed

“lifing”

with style.
