Time flies when you're having fun, especially when you're being productive! I can't believe it's been 6 months since my last entry, so this is continuing where I left off in January. It's been on my "to-do-list" for a while, but kept slipping further down on the priority list. It's a good thing I have my appointment to refer to. Just to clarify for anyone reading this for the first time, this blog is meant to be my "trail of events", or a journal to record events I've done, days spent in Times Square, or anything relevant to my being the Naked Cowgirl. Feel free to read and comment.
SUPERBOWL SUNDAY, Feb. 5th
It was pretty darn cold that day but I knew it would be a great day to be in Times Square considering the NY Giants were in the Superbowl. Aron Ross and a few other players from the team live in my complex during the football season, so there is a lot "Go Giants" spirit where I live. I thought it would be a good idea to deviate from my regular "Cindy Fox Signature Bikini" that I wear as the Naked Cowgirl and paint a bikini and cowgirl hat with the Giants' logo. Everyone in Times Square loved it, including a photographer from Reuters who happened to be out there at the exact moment I stopped and posed to take some photos with the Naked Cowboy. Being that the Giants won the Superbowl this year, I got to wear that outfit out there the day of their celebration parade as well on February 7th.
Times Square Appearances:
Saturday, 3/17 - St. Patrick's Day I took a photo with Cllr. Thomas Kinsella, Mayor of County Carlow, who came up to me after the parade.
Friday, 3/30 - Appearance at Resorts Casino with Naked Cowboy: We were hired to promote their casino for the rodeo that was in town that day. We made a splash at Night Fever, the hot dance club there, as well dancing and mingling at Pro Bar, the first Gay bar in a Casino. We had a great time dancing up on the stage and platforms as well is with the people hanging out there. Marc Berman of NJ.com and The Marc Berman Show came to take photos of us, as did many others.
Monday, April 30th - Filming began for my "Ride It Like A Cowgirl" Music Video, produced by Half Full Media Productions, with Blake Brewer and Ari Blau.
Day 1 of the shoot started at Eric Alt's Salon in Hohokus, NJ with Celebrity Hair Stylyist Eric Altomare, and Brooke Tammaro-Vallon of Baseball Wives. Thanks to my awesome Make Up Artist, Tiffany Aiello, my terrific photographer, Rula Kanawati, and Lynn Nasarenko who did a complimentary spray tan on me, I looked Fabulous in the photos! It's always good to have a solid support system, which also included Lori Michaels, who wrote and Co-produced my song with Giuseppe D.
The second segment of filming for the day was in Times Square where I met up with the Naked Cowboy and we got the crowd dancing and singing "Jump it, Shake it, Rock n' Roll", which is part of the chorus in my song. We also had a guest appearances from Spiderman and Miss Teen New Jersey. I was also flattered to have my Facebook friend Nancy Pignone drive from Connecticut and stay in NY for the night just so she could be a part of my filming. It's great to have loyal fans!
Tuesday, May 1st - Day 2 of the shoot was at Whiskey Cafe in Lyndhurst, NJ.
I was so excited to see how many people showed up to be a part of my music, including two old friends from the gym, Susan Polito and Stacey DiGiacomo. Two of my co-workers from Hackensack University Medical Center, Sean Smith and Christian Rothchild and their friend Mario, also came to participate in the bar scene. I had a suprise visit from Chauce Hayden with Metropolis Magazine, who I hadn't seen since I was on his Steppin Out Live Show a year ago. There are too many people who came to show support and be in my video that I can not name everyone, but appreciate every one of them being there!
The Music Video Release Party for this will be the last week in June in or near Times Square. Be sure to follow me www.twitter.com/nakedcowgirlfox as well as www.facebook.com/NKDcowgirl to find out more details.
Saturday, 5/12 - A Happy day for me because my son returned on a two-week leave from the US Air Force, just in time for Mother's Day, before leaving on Memorial Day to be stationed in Germany for two years.
FLEET WEEK - Memorial Day Weekend
Saturday, 5/26 - There were Marines and Navy men and women all over Times Square celebrating Fleet Week with stage performances, military vehicles on display, and a lot of supportive citizens. I had some great photos taken of me in my Red, White, and Blue Naked Cowgirl Bikini by Photographer Dez Santana www.dezsantana.com which can seen on my www.flicker.com/nakedcowgirlfox as well as my Facebook page listed above.
Sunday, 5/27 - Another great day in Times Square during the holiday weekend, which ended with a visit from my friend Minoo Mirsaidi, with whom I left to go get Sushi and Sake.
