Movember: Day 2

Movember: Day 2


Pretty lazy day today, lol… I woke up on the west side after a bender at Liquid/Suite Sixx and figured I had to holler at El Jalapeno. Shit was phenomenal. Enchiladas Supremas…. #29. Make sure you check it out if you’re ever around 117th and Detroit, lol. Jesse threw me a ticket to the Cavs game tnite against the Hawks. Cavs played terrible, but you’ll have that with a young team. They will be a 6 or a 7 seed in the playoffs this year. Mark my words.

Today was an interesting day as far as team dynamics go. We actually had a girl sign up with us, so more power to her. So please welcome Kelly Repenning as our first Mo Sista on team Cleveland’s Mo Bros. Now we have to put separate showers and bathrooms in the clubhouse, lol.

Looking forward to what’s in store for us on this team. Make sure to keep us in your thoughts and if you can, contribute to the cause (link below). Funny, I know guys that can pretty much grow a full beard in a day. It’s like 24 hours after my haircut/shave and i’ve got a 5 o’clock shadow, lol… Guess it could be worse hahaha


Day: 2

Team Size: 18 (+3)

Money Raised: $220 (+$40)

National Rank: 765 (-107)


According To Cleveland Magazine, I’m One Of Cleveland’s 10 Most Eligible Bachelors

27 01 2010

Hard to fathom right? @rickonia be damned, i’m gonna say another backhanded Cleveland insult (according to him)….. If this was (almost) any other city, it wouldn’t be so hard for me to find a good woman on my level.  My attempts here are futile and successes are few and far between… When I finally get to here:

You know what that spells.... Left to right bitches!

and start working for these guys (fingers crossed):

Here I come!

I have a feeling that my general mood will be substantially elevated and I won’t have to spend my days and night being consoled/agreed with by Adam King (and to think he used to LIVE in LA and then came BACK!  Crazy, I know).

So anyways, here’s me in this month’s issue of Cleveland Magazine.  Feel free to comment, or even better…. click here and send me an e-mail to my nifty address they gave me, lol….  Like I said, Cleveland Magazine seems to think I deserve this.  I’ve been asked in previous years and turned it down, only to be snatched up by Easter Seals and do pretty much the same thing.  Those Crush parties were a letdown 2 yrs in a row :(… but what do you expect right?  The only reason I even said yes was because I thought I would be giving Liquid (my former employer) some great publicity.  That decision became regrettable abt a month and a half later when they fired me. Good thing CleMag called to do a fact check and I was able to tell them that I was a free agent again!  Kudos to my boy Phil Dupuis from the Lake Erie Monsters holdin it down on the cover.  I would hope you would pick one of these up, but in case you’re that lazy, here’s the transcript.  Feel free to comment.  Also, on the website notice that they save the best for last!

For the record, I NEVER drink coffee (its empty).... AND..... I would usually also have picked up some sort of pornographic or semi-nude magazine by this point as well.

Marcus Sims, 28
Owner, Luxe Lifestyles

The perfect date: My perfect date would probably be doing something active — get outside and just running around depending on the season. Maybe snowboarding in the winter, maybe going for a bike ride in the summertime.Something most people don’t know about me: I was a drama minor in college.

My cell phone: Is filled with too many numbers.

Biggest turn-on: Intelligence and class, wrapped in a proportioned physical package

Biggest turnoff: A woman who can’t laugh at herself

I own too many: Promotional T-shirts

My favorite … place in Cleveland: Probably my mom’s kitchen table. My mom’s a great cook. … sports team: Cleveland Cavaliers, and I’m not the bandwagon kind. I’ve been a Cavs fan since I was 8 years old. … book: From Good to Great by Jim Collins … vacation destination: Definitely Los Angeles … dessert: Probably cheesecake. I just really like cheesecake in all of its forms. … blog:, a music blog.

Facebook: yes or no? For my job, I have to stay connected via social media, and even really in my personal life, you know, it’s good to keep in touch.

My usual hangout: At Liquid. Even before I worked there, that’s where I pretty much used to spend all my time.

In high school I was… a clique-buster. I’m a real affable kind of guy, and I was always friends with every crew. I played sports, student government, I hosted the morning announcements on TV. I would just make friends with everybody.

My passion: Seeking knowledge. Always trying to do good by people because it always comes back to you

My best feature: My ability to make people feel comfortable

My bad habit: Sometimes I’m a little stubborn. Sometimes I get overly passionate, and people mistake it for being overly angry. Everything I do is about passion.

My first kiss: I don’t remember, but I know it happened when I was, like, 7.

My guilty pleasure: Probably consuming too much Taco Bell

How my ex would describe me: Passionate, fun loving, ambitious

Blondes or brunettes: Brunettes. Blondes have had there time in the sun; it’s time for somebody else to be that stereotype.

Going out or staying in: Definitely going out

Early, late, or right on time: Right on time because the time when I’m supposed to be there, that’s what time I get there.

Dogs or cats: I would have to say no to both.

My longest relationship: A year and a half

Beer, wine or martinis: Wine, because I just can’t drink straight liquor

Roses or chocolates: Chocolates

My No. 1 dating rule: Always be honest.

My deal-breaker: Closed-mindedness

I hate when a date orders: I really don’t hate when a date orders anything.

Worst pickup line: “Are you tired? Because you’ve been running through my mind all day.”

If I could marry anyone: Halle Berry. She’s pretty hot.

On a first date I never … wear a white shirt.

Best place to meet someone: Wherever you meet somebody is the best place to meet them.

Most unusual place I’ve met someone: I don’t think I really have one. I’ve never met someone at a funeral or something crazy like that.

My take on Cleveland’s single scene: I think that too much power rests with men. I mean, I know it’s the Midwest, and we have very conservative dating value, but it’s time for women to step up to the plate. If you have a good job and you’re a confident assertive woman, don’t be afraid to take charge from time to time.

Last but not least, here’s a great song to fade out to.  Seems appropriate considering the last couple of days:

I Take Bein An Asshole To New Heights

26 01 2010

So my buddy who plays for the Cleveland Indians came in last night for press week.  Let’s call him “Sean.”  In the previous few weeks, I have been trying to set us up with these two girls Laura and She-ra (names have been changed).  I have known Laura for a long time and she’s always kinda been a little hard to gauge.  She chases athletes and what not, so figure out your own impression…. I won’t lead you.  So she has a roommate and they live close to me/bars downtown.

So this planning has lead to last night when we go out.  I tell them early to meet us at Liquid.  I meet up with Sean and we head over.  We catch up and grab a drink… Good times.  He’s a really good dude and it was good seein him.  A few drinks later, the ladies meet us out and we continue to have some cocktails and tell tall tales, lol.  Laura asks me if I like to eat late at night…. I obviously say yes and she says that we should get some pizza from Panini’s and then head back to their place.  So the 4 of us head over there after the bar closes.  I leave with my drink still in my hand from the bar, lol.  We have a run in w/ this drunk guy that was also at Liquid and I wind up having to tell him to get lost.  I continue to tell him to get lost, and wind up pushing him away.  Of course he falls and everyone in the bar has to turn around and see what’s up.  My friends (whom i wasn’t even out with) see what’s going on and they immediately get in the guys face, askin why he’s messin with me.  I got great friends…but i digress.

The four of us wind up at the girls’ house and we smash the pizza and start to play some games.  We throw a couple of darts and play some Foosball…. (my team loses :(, btw).  It’s getting late and it’s about that time when you decide what’s what and who’s with who.  So all of a sudden it’s just 3 of us.  Laura disappears and I’m assuming she’s in the bathroom, or slipping into something more comfortable, lol.  Sean and She-ra head to her bedroom and I’m a little confused.  I look around, realizing that i’m alone and I try to find Laura.  She’s laying in her bed w/ the covers up and tells me that I can sleep on the couch.  I immediately walk out of her room and go looking for Sean.  He comes out and he’s in his underwear, so obviously his night is going exponentially better than mine.

Laura comes out of her room and wonders what’s going on.  I say i’m leaving cause Mr. Sims does not sleep on couches (why should I? I live downtown!) and I let her know how I’m feeling.  I feel like I should tell you that I’m super drunk at this point and prob should have already been sleeping.  So I gave Laura a piece of my mind and proceed to walk out the door in the snow, in the cold, and it’s  5am.  As i’m leaving/getting home, I obviously have more to say to Laura and then the drunk texts start flowing.  Here’s the play by play….

Me: All that time convincing me u weren’t a whore for nothing? Ppl always said u were and I stuck 4 u. (Doesn’t the fact that she told me to sleep on the couch say she’s NOT a whore?  I’m still pissed because she obviously sleeps around.  She has a “batline.”  She works at the Ritz…. Baron Davis sent a picture to her phone that is her screen saver…. you do the math, again… I’m not gonna lead you (though i already did!))  p.s. I think I’m still drunk as I’m writing this.  I woke up at 3:30pm today…

Me: Guess I was wrong…….

Me: And you….. Yankee haters, your momma loved to sex up the slaves

Her: Ha marcus no one i who knows me even knows u. And if i did anything tnite it proved i wasnt

Her: What r u even talking about? (that’s a good fuckin question!!!!! and it gets worse!)

Me: Hahahahahaha so u think. I had been asking abt u @ work from ur bosses. Now I know what kinda person u are, lol. Like I said…. find out who ur dealin with (don’t know why I said that, cause I have no idea who her boss is, lol)

Me: How sweet would it be if u were fired and I was laughing?  Your choice player.

Her: You arent making sense.  I was nothing but nice to you.

Me: Pass… if u think that, u think like the nazis. U wanted for me to get out of ur house

Her: I told u u could stay.  Im just not the kind of person to let someone sleep in my bed the first time we hang out (Um… u have a batphone, yet don’t have an important job, and/or are not an important person within ur company).  No one sleeps in ur bed?  So i guess we shoulda just did it on the couch?

Me: I didn’t ask to sleep in ur bed. You’ll b hearing from.  My lawyer

Her: Umm ok i said u could sleep on the couch. U didnt want to. Goodnight

Me: Welll sweet dreams. Couch it is not

So let me just say that results are not typical.  I had no fucking clue what I was talking about.  I reread my txts and i was mortified… But what is a monday night if you don’t have a story to tell?  I’m not THAT important, but I have some hilarious stories to tell. Some are good and some are bad, but I feel like I have to recount my experiences.  If I don’t, I’m sure I’ll forget and you won’t be able to laugh at me!!

LMFAO Official Afterparty 11.28.09 – Video Flyer

20 11 2009

Here’s my first go round at making one of those video flyers.  I hope you like it!  The concert @ HOB will sell out this weekend, so see what you’ll be getting into when you come to the afterparty @ Ultra Nightclub…. 1212 W. 6th St Cleveland. Doors open at 10pm:

I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell… The Movie

15 09 2009
I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell.... The Movie

I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell.... The Movie

Just came across this. If you have never heard of Tucker Max, drop what you’re doing and go look him up. He is the author of the onetime bestselling book, “I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell.” He is just downright hilarious, mean, or whatever you want to call him. He doesn’t give a fuck. After all this time and all of this buzz, he’s getting his just deserts with a movie coming out by the same name. It comes out Friday, September 25th. Go see it, then check the Shwayze concert, then hit the afterparty @ Suite Sixx/Liquid. Holla!


30 08 2009

So the summertime is coming to a close soon… It’s already like 55 degrees outside right now. I like it though. Not sweatin my ass off everywhere I go. Did you hear abt all this DJ AM business? So crazy when I heard abt it. Cats in LA are trippin right now. Everybody is so sad, I wonder what it did for the weekend. Either ppl playin out to show love for the man, or just mopin through sets. Which one were you?

Hung tough w/ the Cool Kids last week Wed. In town for a show @ HOB. Shit was super dead. They went to the View for a while (yawn), and then I brought them over to Barley for a bit. Chuck jumped in right away. Mikey just worked on his txt game, lol. Can’t say I blame him, Cleveland on a Wednesday isn’t exactly a primetime event.

Went to Columbus this past Friday night. Some party @ Boma. Shit was mad wack so we dipped out and went to Mynt. Great choice. Ran into Ivan Harris from OSU fame. He’s playin for some NBDL team in Erie, PA now. I’d go back home and live like a king too if I were him, lol. Hung w/ a very nice girl and her sister ;). She has the mask/helmet like the one Russell Crowe wore in ‘Gladiator.’ On the base of the stand it said it was from the movie… crazy! Looks like the MF Doom mask to me.

Browns won last night, it’s about time they put something out there for the fans to get behind. 2-1 so far in the postseason, that’ll get the fans in a tizzy for sure. Tons of ppl out last night. Good to see W. 6th legitimately packed. Bars have been hurtin… cept for Barley House, lol. Start workin back at Liquid again in 2 days. It’s been a long time off, doin other work for Luxe Lifestyles. It’s been cool, but I like bein in the mix on a week to week sort of thing rather than an every once in a while thing.

Treat for the day… found this video online. Gotta love “The Little Mermaid” playin in the background.

My First Video

13 04 2009


yo….. so I got a msg from a friend that I was in a video he saw on MTV a week or so ago…. I\’m like whatever man, i\’m not in any videos, i haven\’t been on any sets, it ain\’t me.  But he didn\’t know who\’s song it was, or the artist.  So i\’m thinkin he\’s crazy.  I just got a call from another one of my boys sayin I was just in a video he was watchin on MTV.  So i\’m askin who it was, he says the Knux.  So I go to youtube and look up new Knux videos.  Sure enough, as i\’m watchin F!ire (Put It In The Air), I recognize the show (Agora) and the afterparty (Liquid).  Click on the video and watch for me at 4:16 in the frame with Krispy from the Knux, and Cisco Adler (runs with Shwayze).  Yay, my first MTV video!
