ATTN: students with a .edu email address [21 Jul 2010|11:33am]

Amazon is offering a free 1 year subscription to Amazon Prime (Which usually costs $79 a year. Perks include free 2 day shipping, and $3.99 overnight shipping): http://amzn.to/bSH8jP (url shortened with bit.ly)

This is being marketed towards college students but all you need is a valid .edu email address, so teachers and alumni might be able to benefit from this too (though the Terms of Service does say they have the right to ask for proof that you are a current student).

I apologize if you have already heard about this amazing deal. I just want to help spread the word on this before they stop offering it. I am not an employee of Amazon, nor do I gain anything from people signing up for this service.

Elder Street Artists Lofts' Rummage Sale! Sunday, April 18th!! [14 Apr 2010|11:12pm]

We're doing it again! Come out to the Elder Street Artists Lofts (formerly the Jeff Davis Hospital) and buy our stuff! We'll have many things for sale. We'll have electronics, including TVs, stereo equipment, cameras, playstation 2 as well as clothes, records, cds, movies, furniture, cat furniture and so much more! And since we're artists, you know we'll have our art available for purchase as well! We are a community of photographers, fashion designers, painters, sculptors and jewelry makers. (I'm sure I've forgotten a few other specialties!) Of particular note, one artist will have clay beads and pre-Colombian clay!

The logistics:

1101 Elder St.
Houston, TX 77007

We are near Houston Ave and Washington Ave. (You know, the place you have to go for all of your traffic violations!)

April 18th (Sunday)
9am - 12pm


From Houston Ave, turn on Dart St. (You can only turn one way on dart, so it doesn't matter which way you're coming from) It's right after/before the railroad tunnel/underpass.
Go ALLLLLL the way down until you think we are just leading you into the woods and turn right on Elder. (You will have passed the police impound lot and HFD logistics building and come upon the old probation building.)

Once you are on Elder St. keep going until you see the first driveway on the right, turn in here and park in this lot (no guest parking in the front parking lot!)

We will have signs to direct you once you approach the building. We have yet to determine if we will keep the front door open, or use a backdoor closest to the parking lot. (You should check out the front of our building anyhow, it has an AMAZING view of downtown and you can read about the history of the building on our historical marker!)

Hi there NCAA College Fans.... [27 Oct 2009|12:15pm]


Ok, first off, I have to say, I really have NO IDEA what I am doing with this. Hopefully I can actually post and not screw this up. ;)

Hi readers, My name is Cheri Rocha and I have recently opened an online business at www.yourcollegeteamstore.com. I am specializing in NCAA College teams in the C-USA, MAC, WAC, Mountain West, and SunBelt Divisions.

My husband was actually the inspiration for this store. He is an alumni of a C-USA school and was just tired of not being able to find merchandise for his school. You could always find stuff for the "Big Schools", or what would be considered the "popular" ones. So we started doing research and found that there are manufacturers that do make this stuff, but not many who will carry or sell it. So that is where Your College Team Store originated.

We are the typical family of 4, with 2 dogs, and a cat. Both our children are school aged and they really do eat up alot of our free time with all their sports and school activites, but we wanted to find something that we could do to help other "Division 1 School Alumni" or (current students) find the items that they want, without having to search and search for someone who makes or sells it.

As I said before, we just JUST OPENED...but, I am adding new items to every school in the C-USA, MAC, WAC, Mountain West, and SunBelt Divisions as I am able to find them. I will try and add new items as often and possible, and post on here what is new, and any promtions that we have that day/week.

I thank you in advance for taking a moment and clicking on our store link above... Please pass it along to your friends and family. The more people I can direct to the site, the higher I can get on those darn search engines... If you find something you like, and maybe it's not in your school, just let me know.. I will do what I can to find it for you.

Everyone have a safe and Happy Halloween this weekend. BTW GO COOGS!!!

It's the final DANSEPARC!!! [09 Oct 2009|10:31am]

[ mood | accomplished ]

current flyer

Alright, this is it! This is the FINAL danseparc. We started this thing in 2002 with Jen (Nuromantik now known as DJ Skully), Allison (Fashmagslag/Faux Fancy) and myself, Shoe. Since then we've had DJs leave and new ones come, such as Jaime (from Fashion Kills and Substance), Stacey (Mr. Pink Eyes) and Michael. Jaime now lives in Denver, Stacey is in Chicago and Allison is in NYC. They are ALL flying down here to play a set at the final danseparc! So for the first time ever, we will have every danseparc DJ playing a set in one night!

Many have asked why we are ending it. To that we say, check out this interview: http://www.29-95.com/music/story/danseparc-ends-its-seven-year-party (Thank you Ramon!)

We are sad to say goodbye but it is time. We want to thank you all for making it a fun night, we owe it all to you. So we hope you can make it out one last time, even if you don't go out anymore. Let's make it a night to remember!

We will have a lot of giveaways including mix cds, t-shirts and a little zine with the history of danseparc.

The Goods:

When: Saturday October 10th, 2009 9:30pm - 2am (maybe longer if you force us!)
Where: #s - 300 Westheimer
Who: Allison (Faux Fancy), Jen (Skully), Michael, Stacey (Mr. Pink Eyes), Shoe and Jaime
Why: We want to say goodbye!


If you have any pictures, please add them to the danseparc group on flickr! http://www.flickr.com/groups/danseparc/ (join the group and use the organizer to do a whole bunch at once!)

Thank you all again! We <3 you! See this Saturday!

question [01 Oct 2009|06:47pm]

Sorry for off topic, but I need to know the opinion of the majority.. I am currently working in a big company and due to the financial crisis my Head Manager told me to improve my education or I will be fired. Thus I decided to get an MBA degree. But.. I can not leave my workplace right now.. too costly for me.. that's why I decided to go in for online MBA program. Is it OK? How can they give diploma at all at the distance? Thanks for all the answers!

Andy Rourke is a legend in his own right. When Johnny Marr and Morrissey formed The Smiths, Rourke joined the band after their second gig, and remained with the band almost throughout its existence. Marr claims that Rourke's contribution to The Queen Is Dead LP was "something no other bass player could match."

In the last several years, Rourke has traveled the globe as a DJ at some of the worlds hottest clubs, parties, concerts and music festivals, fashion shows, and private events. Energetic, fun, and extremely danceable, Rourke's DJ sets combine a healthy portion of Smiths classics. Britpop, indie-electro, new wave and dance rock. A musical journey from one of the pioneers of the UK indie rock scene.
