If you’re on my Twitter or Google Plus, you’ll already know… we Pirates landed a new TV job, which will shoot early next year! Details and destinations to come soon. (Above: doing a segment with Fashion TV Japan during NY Fashion Week.)

I was chatting with Yukiro yesterday, and there’s a lot we are grateful for. Here’s some reflections (and bonus NYC photos) on Thanksgiving Day.

Super grateful for RuPaul’s Drag Race. But seriously, Ru’s a pioneer and his show shines a light on alternative culture. Inspired to do the same.

Here’s to good causes and good food. Jenny of ProjectExplorer (a terrific, non-profit educational travel series) took us to Spice Market in the meatpacking district. I’m salivating as I recall the south Asian flavors… coconut rice, shaved tuna with chili tapioca, yuzu drink, and pumpkin ginger cheesecake.

    Thank to you La Carmina, I had some good shopping addresses when I’ve been to NY last July. I had no idea that there was an alternative district in New York City and I was very happy to discover that ! St Mark’s Place is awesome and Trash and Vaudeville is a very good shop “n(>w<)n" (I've found some New Rock that didn't exist in Paris, unfortunately, the New Rock shop in Paris has closed a couple of month ago =( … )

      Wonderful, I’m so happy this was helpful! I have blog posts about Trash & Vaudeville, Search & Destroy and other places in my NY category. Love that area.
