Dear Bronxites. Say goodbye to many of your favorite organizations, likely to be shut down in the next few rounds of fundraising, most of which support the youth, the arts, and those who are destitute.

The lengths of dubiousness which the GOP has gone into getting this bill passed makes it clear; Congress is gambling with the lives of millions of people who rely on charitable and government social services by increasing the deficit to fund tax cuts.

The elimination of the charitable deduction for 31 million middle and upper-middle income taxpayers causes such damage to the not for profit sector; it will have no choice but to oppose the bill.

Because the bill increases the standard deduction, fewer people would take the itemized deduction for charitable contributions which would lead to a decline in charitable giving.
Charities had pushed for people to be able to deduct their donations regardless of whether they itemize. While some GOP lawmakers took up their cause, a universal charitable deduction was not included in the bill.
When Trump ran on DRAINING THE SWAMP, did you know he was talking about us????

The chances of such program passing legislation are as good as an Anthony Wiener's 2020 presidential campaign. None!
I read four comprehensive articles about the subject, and when I say 4 I mean 2. The bottom line is, that though a government-run single-payer-health-care system providing insurance coverage to all Americans sounds amazing, this shit ain't happening.


Sanders wants to make sure that Americans don't pay out of pocket when they visit the doctor. He wants us to have a coverage package that is more generous than even Canada and Norway has, by including eye and dental care and no deductible. He claims that the reduced administrative waste caused by having to deal with thousand of insurers in the current system will counter the increased cost of his Medicare-for-all plan.


Sounds good, right? Here's the thing:

1. Sanders still hasn't explained how we are going to pay for that.
2. Most Dems are not close to even considering such a leftie concept, especially those up for reelection in red states.
3. Should we even mention enormous tax increase? *see #1
4. Insurers, drug companies, and all their 'beneficiaries' will put up a bloody fight

Bernie understands that and says: “Nobody has all the answers. What I can say is we are going to be listing some revenue-raising proposals, which will generate more than enough money to pay for what we want to do.”  The idea sounds great, though the timing, cost, and the support don't. I, personally, think that Bernie knows what he is doing, why he is doing it, and more importantly, why now.


Think about it; Trump uses a simple, yet brilliant tactic consistently - move the status quo so far to your direction and force your opponent to compromise well in your territory. We've seen it in every move he made, including, of course, The Obamacare. If anyone in D.C is smart enough to realize that - It's Sanders, understanding, that if you want to leave things where they are, at least until we relieve ourselves of president-num-nut in 2020, you have to pull a hard left, so you can end up where you've started.



Make sense? Once again, Bernie is a mofo'ing gangsta!

San Francisco - Following the recent scandal featuring Ted Cruz tweet, the mega site shocked the entire white male 35-55 demographics declaring it will no longer produce stepmom porn. The Texas Republican senator, known for his failed presidential attempt in 2016, being Donald Trump's bitch, and for being a conservative douche whose agenda is pretty much anti-women, anti-gay, anti-2017, woke up Tuesday to find his name trending on Twitter. His newly found social media love came after liking a 2-minutes, porn video featuring Cory Chase, her "stepdaughter," and a young man.
Senator Cruz, naturally, as politicians often do, stated in an official response: "“It was a staffing issue, and it was inadvertent, It was a mistake.”


PornHub, the world's leading pornographic site, took 24-hours to respond to the incident, stating that they were caught off-guard and are very disappointed that such double standard scum might watch any of their videos in the first place, and went on as to announce that they will no longer produce this category.

Jimmy Kimmel had fun with it.


We couldn't get a response from Cory Chase before publishing this article. She might be in an emotional stress.



Not long ago, we made a video titled "Condoms, Needles, and Poop WTF??!!" which describe the horror of walking the pedestrian walkway between Harlem and the South Bronx. And yes, it is filled with the above on a regular base. But there's more. The bridge acts as a shelter to a growing number of homeless, a side motel to street walkers, an outhouse to the random individual on the run, a favorite spot for cheaply produced, alcohol infused music videos, and a drive in lunch and nap lot to littering EMT's and other mobilized professions.


If you just pulled a stunk face thinking about the above paragraph, you're on point. We've been tweeting the DOT, continually calling 311, and attempted to rally some of the local folks to help with managing the disaster, but without much luck.

Enter, Michael Brady and Third Avenue Bid.
Michael is the Executive Director for the BID, a South Bronx resident, and a rising star in the community leadership. He possesses vast experience in all things local government and an impressive speed dial list.








The BID or Business Improvement District, a public-private partnership governed by a Board of Directors and derives its revenue from an annual assessment on all real property located within its boundaries, promotes the growth, vitality, and visibility of the commercial corridor. The organization serves over 200,000 individuals daily with a mission is to keep one of NYC’s most trafficked shopping districts clean, safe, and attractive to businesses, workers, community residents, and visitors.


bridgeThe BID, lead by Mr. Brady, has been monumental in assisting and consulting the formation of the South Bronx Alliance, a local business improvement organization with intending on becoming a local bid covering Bruckner Blvd and the lower parts of 138th st. In addition to the tedious but crucial paperwork, grant writing, legal documentation, blah blah, the team understands the importance of activating the community, feet on the ground. They have been orchestrating a few key events to take place throughout the remainder of 2017, in partnership with BLOX NYC, EDIBLE BRONX, BRONX EATS, SOUTH BRONX FARMERS MARKET, and FIT BRONX.



On October 7th and 21st, we will gather a group of locals to power wash the bridge, clean the passages, safe proof both walkways and underpasses, and beautify the surrounding. We will also document the process and share it with city and borough officials, and local developers/ business owners. The cleanup will culminate with an OCTOBER 22nd BLOCK PARTY under the bridge where we will celebrate our strong and active community with a clean and safe Third Ave bridge, great food dished by a dozen restaurants, great music, street activation, health education, and lot and lot of fun.

So, save the date. OCTOBER 22nd. More info to come soon.


I love this show. I love everything about it. Well, except for the painfully beautiful Logan Browning aka DWP's weakest link.

The show' creator, the amazing, Justin Simien has created what most filmmakers and show runners only dream of; A perfect multi-perspective piece that includes the only thing that matters in any incident worth writing about - the complete and absolute personal view of each participant. Which is tough, trust me.

The entire season one is crafted in a way that it keeps telling the same story - the black face party - but every time from another character's point of view, and while considering the essence of what makes us do things as human, love, hate, sadness, pressure, pain. The script is just so damn smart and thoughtful, and funny and emotional, and yes, I am jealous.

The acting is pretty fucking fantastic as well! We are talking about a lineup that will make ANY PRIME TIME show, or mega film proud: Brandon P Bell Antoinette RobertsonDeRon HortonJohn Patrick Amedori, Jemar Michael and my favorite -Marque Richardson - all do an amazing job, and I can't wait for their Hollywood take over. 


One other nugget is the fact that Tina Mabry (one of my favorite young directors) and Barry Jenkins (oh, you know, Barry Jenkins) have director credit on a few episode and both leave their distinct footprint though respectful to the piece.

So, what's my problem? Relax. Logan Browning isn't on par with the cast, script or the directors. Sorry, but she isn't. And it's not that I am comparing her to the incomparable Tessa Thompson because I don't. I just didn't believe her acting most of the time. I still binged the show in 2 seating though. The show's creators and Netflix are working on season 2 as we speak, and if they decide to leave Logan as Sam, I hope they'll consider getting her some nonacting lessons.




The Bronx Art Space is a Non-for-Profit that promotes the innovative ideas of underrepresented and emerging artists and curators. It is dedicated to exhibiting quality artwork from The Bronx and around the world with a mission to foster dialogue around global issues.



A three-venue exhibition between Andrew Freedman Home, BronxArtSpace and Swing Space, STATE PROPERTY is a multi-disciplinary examination of American consumption of prison labor and our daily choices to purchase, condone or reject goods created in penitentiaries. The exhibition asks guests to consider what “Made in the U.S.A” currently means about the incarceration system and corporate outsourcing. Currency and choice are the springboards towards a much deeper dialogue that recognizes these injustices.


Opening Receptions

Sep 8, 6-9pm at BronxArtSpace

Sep 15, 6-8 at Swing Space

Sep 22, 6-11pm at The Andrew Freedman Home


STATE PROPERTY describes a citizen that once incarcerated is inspected, cataloged, housed, and assigned to the state as its property like a slave whose body if damaged or altered from its original value is further financially penalized.

STATE PROPERTY also describes all goods manufactured in correctional facilities and government land and buildings from courthouses to public housing, in which many of these products from furniture to mops are then used.

When major corporations can buy into this labor system as a way of appealing to the “locally owned, locally grown” fad, the prison industrial complex pins inmates into either forced labor as a means to pay back the cost of their incarceration or solitary confinement as punishment. Prisoners provide luxury and everyday items that they cannot partake in, while taxpayers provide for the upkeep of prisons. As incarceration rates grow exponentially, taxpayer money is transferred from poor minority communities to white rural counties to reject these drastic shifts in population.

The boundaries that are challenged between product, services, and citizenry are intentionally blurred by the artists forcing us to question how we define ourselves and personal ethics within our social system.

Touching upon a narrative that categorizes people of color as property, STATE PROPERTY comments on power paradigms that perpetuate today’s socioeconomic tiers, and simultaneously presents a

visual alternative that is more hopeful. Through painting, photography, sculpture, installation, video, and performance, artists scrutinize mass incarceration, police brutality, class conflict, and racial hierarchy.

Instagram officially launched on October 6, 2010, as an iPhone app. Within one month, it gained 1 million users - just to reference - It took Foursquare and Twitter 2 years to reach that milestone. Despite originally appearing only on the iPhone, the Instagram app is divided 50/50 between Apple and Android users. And we’re all obsessed with it. Let’s face it.


This mega social media platform was purchased by Facebook for $1B (that’s that one with nine zeros) and has never looked back. The popular platform has been eyeing SnapChat’s market share for a while, as is evident in the frequent updates to its stories, share options and even live broadcasting. The writing's on the wall, and the wall is filled with images and one-minute videos. Instagram occupies the space that websites and business cards used to; giving people from all walks of life a pre-introduction to an individual, company, organization or brand, by allowing a sneak peek into their aesthetic, capabilities, and maybe even their soul. First impressions are crucial, and nowadays they’re made before you even get in the room.

I spend about 1-1.5 hours a day on the gram, posting here and there, liking friend’s images and videos, tagging people on some inside jokes or stuff I think they’ll appreciate, and looking for cool shit. When you do that for a while, say a few years - you develop your flavor, and that comes with a sense of style, and critical voice. There’ a lot of garbage out there, and sometimes people are ridiculous in their posting habits, so you unfollow the worst of them and ignore others. But then there are those accounts that are like scratching a scab when you shouldn’t; like trying not to laugh when someone falls on their head; like being disgusted by a pimple being popped but not being able to look away.


The list below includes my favorite IG accounts to hate, in a particular order:


The “I am richer than god, but I have no real sense of aesthetic and I am too cheap to pay a community manager or a graphic designer to help me, but hey, I have tons of money.”







The “I am so ratchet, and I appeal to the lowest common denominator possible in the makeup of a human form, and since some people seem to like my degrading, offensive, ghetto ass garbage posts, I will make sure to go even lower in the name of getting likes.”







The “I found my niche, it's all about daily video with sort of comedic situations where I repeat the same notions but only a little different each time, but since I already established millions of viewers, I get 500,000 minimum likes for everything I do which is mostly me overreacting to every made up situation.”






The “I am so blessed to be alive, and in these times, everything I touch turns to gold, fuck that, turns to platinum, and my life is so great, you should watch me, love me, adore me, support me, repeat.”







The  “I know better than everyone how to do things, and how to live, be a man, a person, and y’all need to listen to me but be free spirited at the same time and conquer life but not before you pay $6000 to my seminar or buy my stupid wine.”








The “I just started working out last Monday, and now I am the world's biggest expert in all things fitness, nutrition, and motivation and I don’t take days off from the gym, I don’t need sleep, check how I do squats, meal portion and call you out for being lazy.”








Two honorable mentions to this article are Lena Dunham - because I just don’t like her! And, Michael Rapaport who regularly rants about everything to the point I am worried about him not having anything positive in life. #needhelpbutkindahilarious





Disclaimer: I do not condone being in a situation that requires you to follow the advice of this blurb. And I hope that you will always do the right thing in the case, god forbid, you find yourself in this scenario.


NYC, the Big Apple, is known for many things, compassion isn’t one of them. Mind your damn business is big on that list. Some of Gotham’s Do’s & Don'ts: avoiding eye contact on the subway and streets, continuing to walk no matter what’s going on around you, and never engaging with people doing crazy shit in public, i.e., urinating, soliciting Jesus, talking to themselves or worse, multiple selves.


But compassion is one thing, and hiding a dead body is another; while researching the subject, I found that the primary and obvious qualification for this shady list is that the location should be very isolated or extremely public.


So, while not perfect, here are my top places I’d hide a body if I had too:


  • Lincoln Plaza Cinema - Mostly known for its golden age, mostly Jewish patrons, and the only place in town serving homemade carrot cake and bagels with lox and cream cheese in its concession stand. The theatre also employs the oldest ushers and security guards in the business. You can 'Weekend at Bernie's' it, and no one will notice for a good few days, giving you a chance to get that plastic surgery, buy speedos and permanently move to Aruba.



  • Chinatown - Let's be honest you can pretty much dump anything there- especially your dignity- and it will go unnoticed for weeks. But, since you're down there, going full incognito with brand new Guchi sunglasses, Sefora makeup, Nu Era hat, a Roll-x watch, Supreem box logo tee, and Djordan sneakers that won't break the bank. And, you're just a few minutes away from the Drunken Dumpling- because nothing makes "I fucked up, and I will carry that guilt for the rest of my adult life" feel better than soup dumplings.



  • The L train - Ok, so this is a no brainer. I know. Even before mentioning the inevitable 15 months planned shutdown we are all aware of, two ultimate facts make the L a perfect body-hiding haven: 1. It never runs on schedule - especially on weekends and 2. it's filled with people whose uninterested disposition is notorious for not giving a literal fuck about anything but whatever they care about this week. (unless it's a small thing in some remote area, that no one else knows or cares about and involves making their own butter).



  • A vegan restaurant in the Bronx - The Bronx is number 62 out of 62 counties in NYS with regard to health concerns; a distinct representation of its socio-economical status reflected via food choices and health education. Fried plantains and refried beans don't constitute as veggies, and iceberg lettuce is closer to toilet tissue then greens. There are approximately ten vegan places for a population of 1.5 million, serving tourists and gentrifiers while being yelled at by local bloggers. So leave that pale, rigid corpse seated, no one is gonna know the difference.



  • Staten Island body- We are talking about the entire Borough of Staten Island as a 'shit, what do I do with this body - I think I am gonna dump it in Staten Island' situation. As far as we know, there is no better place to hide a body than right under the nose of a community of cops and gangster wannabes?!  But, if I had to choose one spot it would be a tough choice between these morbid God-forsaken shitholes: the New York City Farm Colony, The Tugboat Graveyard or The West Brighton Houses. Yikes.


So, there, this are my top 5 places (for now)  What other places can you think of? Let me know. Use #hideabodynyc

It’s not always good to be the first. But, when it comes to media, it usually is. The Blox team, 'AKA media mavericks with cheek', has been the first when it comes to being a creative force in modern digital media in The Bronx, New York. The first to introduce a barrage of videos on various topics and with local talent. The first to present motion graphics, green screen shenanigans, and run & gun style of filming. The first to go live on social media and the first to be live on FB for 24-hours. We were the first, and still the only, to push the envelope with disruptive content that represents the local demographics by, well, telling it like it is. We’re also the first to use conceptualized creative content to promote businesses, organizations, and events.

We see you following our steps, wink wink.

Do you think super creative videos, edgy graphic campaign, and ballsy activations, all created by local talent is going to be useful in promoting your interest? Well, first of all - YES! But, since you asked; Here’s a case study from our collaboration with The Bronx Brewery on the Summer Done Right event series in July-august 2017.

The conversation with the marketing team at the Brewery revealed the need to je ne sais quoi - more Bronxness and more revenue. So the way we approached that was by addressing the following:

  1. Increase pre-sale numbers
  2. Increase participation & engagement
  3. Be clear on the details by addressing issues such as commute and ticket price
  4. Enhance diversity and no pretentiousness
  5. Blast up the Dope level AF
  6. Introduce top level local talent
  7. Bring top local vendors

The good people at The Bronx Brewery are great partners, and once the ‘story’ was in line with their M.O, they had an entirely open mind on our unique ‘BLOX’ style of execution. And, so it begins. (the below is a mere selection - we've actually made more than 20 videos, created over 150 graphics, and took more than 3000 pictures.)

If you don't know. You ain't from here. The End!



How many times have you heard that The Bronx is the least healthy county in NY? Number 62 out of 62? TOO MANY DAMN TIMES!!!!
And yes, it has everything to do with being the poorest congressional district in the country. Most of the conversation has been about poor food choices, and with the Borough President, Mr. Ruben Diaz Jr. running and initiative #NOT62, there has been a lot more attention to healthy, fresh food options in the Bronx. Enter The Bronx Salad.


But, nutrition is only part of it. What about physical activity? You know, the kind that will burn those healthier choice calories you’ve been eating, raise your heart rate, build muscles, help you focus and sleep better, and possibly help you belong to a new family. Some say, religion.

I am talking about Workout people!
Running, Cycling, Crossfit, Boxing, Kickboxing, Body building, Soccer, Basketball, Netball, Kettlebell, Skating, Swimming, Yoga, Football, Chasing buses. Ok, not chasing buses - don’t do that!

We are in a new era, here in The Bronx, and I am not talking about gentrification; a new era where we get more options to move our fries and beer filled bodies en-route to feelbetterville.

Let’s talk: what, where, and who.

Crossfit SobroCROSSFIT SOBRO - the first place to bring CrossFit to The Bronx community. Established in 2013 and located in 229 Bruckner Blvd, Port Morris. They are passionate about improving health and fitness in this community, where it’s still more common to see a fried chicken joint than a vegetable stand. They follow a traditional CrossFit model, no treadmills, no machines, no TVs or mirrors just barbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, pull-up rigs and jump ropes; and we run around the block.




Bronx SoleBRONXSOLE - is a free running and walking group founded by Justin Mashia and Pedro Rivera. The duo was upset to learn that the Bronx is the unhealthiest county in New York state, and decided that something must be done to get Bronxites to be more healthy. What is unique about Bronx Sole is they do two historical stops during the run where they introduce Bronxites to a little history about the borough. They currently have a running group, a walk/run group, and a walking group, ages seven to 60 years old. Meet the group every Tuesday at 6 pm by the entrance of Franz Sigel Park on 153rd & Grand Concourse, and follow them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.



South BoxSOUTH BOX BOXING GYM - SouthBoX is a boxing gym located in Mott Haven, The South Bronx. They combine real boxing workouts, with real boxing trainers, to get our client's actual results.

And yes. We know the cover isn't from The Bronx.'s a getting stronger visual people!!


With Colin Kaepernick banned from the NFL and with the controversy that follows his refusal to stand during pregame ceremonies, a question arises: is it time for a new national anthem?

It is evident that America's two hundred and something years of traditions are coming to an end; democracy, freedom of speech, middle-class, unity, and the principles engraved on the statue of liberty are just the tip of the iceberg. With the increasing uproar of likes of our modern day gladiators, such as Michael Bennett and Marshawn Lynch, it is time to reassess the relevance of the anthem and the way it represents the people of this country.

Outdated, offensive and noninclusive are words that repeat.

So, we thought about it and came up with our selection of 'This could be our new Anthem' or 'the most badass playlist of August 2017:'

anthem1. Kendrick Lamar “Humble” - The acclaimed rapper is considered to be the best of this generation, bringing back Tupac style of a poet-like-lyrics with dope beats and samples, masterfully mixed into contemporary classics. In the age of internet and empty celebrity statuses, what's a better message than to be humble?



anthem2. Bruno Mars “Uptown Funk” - Bruno is universally adored! His music crosses race, gender, and political difference. If you don't funk to his groove, you are not alive really. We wanted to put 'I'll catch a grenade for you, but that sounds aggressive and unnecessary.




anthem3. Celine Dion “My Heart Will Go On” - The vocalist phenome could easily have a dozen songs on this list, but unfortunately, she's Canadian, and though white, many of Trump supporters will object. We will try and squeeze this mega hit in, just in case.



4. Aerosmith “Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing” - What's more American that Aerosmith? NOTHING. Rock and Roll, drugs, sex, leather everything, repressed gay preference, makeup, saving the world from a meteor, and lots of Botox. Oh, and mega hits that touch a chord with every American age 4-69. We walk around like we deserve everything, so this song hit home hard.





5. Journey “Don’t Stop Believing” - We had to end the list on some positive note, and arguably one of the top 10 most loved songs ever. This song is the only cure to a divided America with a hopeful message and the unparallel ability to kick off a party whether you're a Burning Man creature or a NASCAR fanatic



Alas, we had to cut a few incredible numbers reluctantly; so our 'didn't make a list' list consists of:
1. Lynard Skynard "Free Bird - because, well, anything Southern needs to chill the fuck out for a while
2. The Village People "YMCA" because white heterosexual men already feel threatened






In conclusion; It's ok to protest; we need to create a new American story, one that is current with our times, and represent us all. Or, we should break the union, go about on our business, and apologize to Kaepernick


You read it right. Netflix is spying on you, and there's nothing you can do about it. I mean, you can quit the service. They state: "please confirm that you have read and agree to the current terms of use and Privacy statement. If you don't agree, you can cancel your membership."
Some Gangsta Shit Right there!!!

To make a long story short; Netflix has realized what the rest of the business world knows: BIG DATA is the way to go. There's only so much money to be made by selling $9 subscriptions, especially with the distribution deals that Netflix has to commit itself to, trying to stay relevant in the battle with Amazon and Apple. And, think about it, almost everyone who would have the streaming service has it already. At least in North America, that is, which stresses the board of directors.

Netflix has paid $12 mm for Beast Of No Nation, has $100 mm deal with Queen Latifah's Flavor Unit and just announced the signing of the incredible Shonda Rhimes to its line up.

That means they need money. How does one get money if one has millions of subscribers? ONE SELLS EVERY BIT OF ANALYTICS ABOUT ITS CLIENTELE ONLINE BEHAVIOR. 

Netflix & Chill or else...

And yes, I know that almost every major company is doing that nowadays, they're just less aggressive about it. Oh, one last thing...who are these SERVICE PROVIDERS?

Do you want to know how fucked up things are nowadays in the South Bronx? I give you - The Third Ave Bridge.

The bridge is a pedestrian route, connecting The Bronx to Manhattan. It is plagued with- right in front of our frickin’ faces- prostitution, homelessness, and hardcore drug use that litters the walkway, the nearby playground, and both underpasses: used condoms, human feces, and needles.



You heard me: the bridge is littered with condoms, human feces, and needles.


bridgeBut this is the dilemma; The Bronx government doesn’t have the budget to clean this mess up. The police ignore broad daylight pimping. The housing authority doesn't give a damn about the homeless invading the underpasses. The Mayor's office is passing it around like an unwanted adopted child. The DOT defers concerned parents to the purgatory that is a 311 hotline. The South Bronx community is too busy making minimum wage and alternately fighting Freshdirect. And the wealthy developers that are building around embrace the attitude of 'once bitten twice shy' with gentrification being called out following every move they make.

What about us? Those who cross the bridge to go to work/school/practice every day? It seems like everyone else knows what we want better than us, and they will fight tooth and nail over that, without asking us, of course.

Hashtag This Sucks!

So, Fuck that noise. Take things in your hands and be loud till someone picks up the trash. Literally.

Here's how we do it.  Share if you care.
