The latest from ArthurKade.com:
I remember being at Mur Mur (It was the hottest club in AC at the time, and we had the best table in the house because I was with some “Kade Level” Ballers who dropped like 14k in 5 hours on “Models and Bottles”), and 5AM rolled around, and I had an amazingly hot Latino girl sitting on my lap (I tried to get her back to my room for a One Nighter, but she demanded a dinner date so I took her out the next weekend, slept with her, and never called her again because she was so annoying at dinner talking about her Ex, that I couldn’t get her to leave my room fast enough after I was done), making out with me, and I looked at her and said, “This DJ is fucking awesome, I haven’t stopped pumping my fist all night. Who is it?”, and she responded, “AM is the best, and he is about to become the biggest DJ in the country”, and I said, “The guy’s mixes and mashes are so “”"Visionary”". Did he really just mix NKOTB with Biggie then Prince at the same time?”
Since that night, I have heard Adam Goldstein spin in KA, Vegas, NY, and AC (Many times), and I have always said to people, “I am an expert in Pop Culture and music, and I will say this guy is the best, because you will find yourself dancing to his music for hours”, and I truly believe that DJ AM took popular style DJ’ing to levels it’s never been, ushering a new style of Mixes and Mash-Ups that were so fresh and innovative, that it had never been done before. Just like I am a visionary of Acting (I want to become the Male version of Oprah in “The Biz” and build a “Multi-Media Mogul-Style Empire” that is not only global, but Universal), DJ AM took club music to another level, and it is such a shame to see such a great talent go so early.
The news affected me deeply because I had just had him brought over to me at Dusk to be introduced, and I thought it could be the beginning of a future relationship of 2 growing social stars that would help redefine club life and take it to the next level (Imagine a bond between the world’s biggest DJ, and the world’s greatest actor who both dominate the social scene “Kade Style”), and when I heard the news last night, it actually reminded me that no matter how invincible I think I am at 31, in the end we are all mortal, and as a friend said last night, “We are all just one heart beat away”, and I thought, “What a waste of such an amazing talent who had survived a plane crash, avoided another one, and this is the way it ends. Truly a shame, but the key is to take the memories and the gifts he provided the world, and push them forward”.
All we can do as peers (Him and I are roughly the same age), is take his example and realize that life is a “Fragile Gift” that must be cherished, and that our bodies are our “Temples” (My body and face is what I get paid for both through Modeling and Acting, and I always try to make sure I am at top Handsome Levels), and that in the end we are all mortals who should take what we learn from greats like Adam Goldstein, and make the world a better place for the Gen Pop that needs us to be better, and change the social norms of “The Biz” for our children, their children, and so on, because the world will remember people like AM and Arthur Kade (’I believe “The Journey” will be looked at like a modern day “Hamlet” of innovation) as visionaries, pioneers, and even “Social Gods”.
