I have changed my profile picture to blue in support of #sudanuprising #sudanmassacre Hundreds of civil rights leaders have been killed, women and children raped, and dead bodies thrown into the Nile. The second slide is a photo of @mattar77 Mohamed Hashim Matter, a 26 year old engineer, a graduate of London’s Brunel University who was in a peaceful demonstration for democracy when he was killed. His favorite color was BLUE and now the global movement is using this symbol to raise awareness. I was fortunate to have beautiful classmates from Sudan 🇸🇩 in the 90s in England. I thank my parents for showing me the world and to care and be curious about other cultures and nations. Help Sudan get their cellphone signals and internet service back - so an international investigation into these war crimes can start. They want a democracy. #blueforsudan 500 Killed-723 Injured-650 Arrested-48 Women Raped- 6 Men Raped- a 6 year was old raped by 10 men- 1000 Missing. Call (202) 224 3121 State your zip code. When connected tell them you support helping the people of Sudan.
Billy Gubes. Happy Father’s Day. You are a legend. Slide #1 you are confidently holding a purse moments before my 30th Birthday Party in 1999, the black & white pics you were a handsome race car driver, slide # 3 is just over a week ago-June 8 in Rome looking good at age 76. We now know someone is giving you false reports on your Instagram notoriety. Could that person please tell you the FACTS. You are sorely missed. Every week people I know, as well as complete strangers, come up to me saying that they miss & love the “Billy Gubes” series. Happy Father’s Day Dad. Thank you for teaching me to drive a motorcycle when I was 7, a stick shift car when I was 10, you also taught me to become proficient in using Airmiles, you gave me very low limits on credit cards so I figured out what stores in London did not require authorization to blast over my limit 😂. You did my Latin homework for me in the car in Henley while I fed my pony, you sent me to Paris the summer of 1985 to live with a family and go to “school” - I found myself another school “nightclubs” and my French vastly improved. I might try to call your landline today, as I know your cell will be OFF, no European roaming charges. Love you Dad. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Look who’s HOME 🗽don’t get lost again. #reunited #engagewiththecamera #fermel #madeleinealbright thank you @tizzielisch @mason.lanee @jonathan.mark #LT47 #happybirthdaylizzie
Marj Madness.... stronger than ever. @simonhuck looking out into a sea of black T shirts has never made me happier. My friends are the reason that I am a DJ. Thank you for changing my life.
This is about a woman’s Right to Choose. Don’t distort the facts. #moveforwards
Best night, group, and food all in the best city.
Yo Mama. @gubelmom it’s the day that I get to say thank you for teaching me the most important things in my life. To be brave, to just get on with it, to stick up for myself, to set the table, serve and clear, look at people’s ankles and finger nails, telling me so many words NEVER to use I still forget! You always stuck up for me, yelled at my teachers (then punished me afterwards) you let me be so naughty, you looked the other way and were the most fun even though I was mortified-I am now so grateful. You sneak off to 🏥 and get surgery and tell us afterwards. You still prefer potted plants so that you can regrow them in your garden. You love arts and crafts although I have zero patience. You send the filthiest jokes that make tears stream down my face. @wgubes and I complain a lot but love you- life would be so boring with any other mother. I mean you on your 🛵 just says it all. HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY NINI.
Thank you @cbarsala for finding this gem by Betty Kuhner in @questmag. Here are the Gubelpeople in 1976 L to R my mom @gubelmom in New Man bell bottom jeans and a Swiss cow belt!, my dad Billy Gubes, my brother @wgubes, my grandmother Barton, my grandfather Walter, Me, my uncle Jimmy, and my aunt Kate. Betty Kuhner would take a family portrait about once a year.. then one year Dad was very bad and took a COLOR photo of us with his own camera -when Betty had arranged the shot. He called it “Billy Kuhner” I am sure she was not amused. This photo was taken in Palm Beach on my grandparent’s croquet course. Now there are about 5 houses on the lot!!
Friends since the 80’s. @manalarman you are always there through thick+thin. What a beautiful spoiling Birthday Weekend you had for King Mort. -and our sweet boys together in slide 2. 🥰. I love you Mini Mouse the Yemeni Empress of Style & Grace.
MY FIRST PODCAST‼️ “At 43, @marjoriegubelmann went from CEO to successful music DJ after a friend asked her to DJ his birthday party. “My whole life has changed” states the now-49-year-old who goes by the stage name Mad Marj. Her passion for music started when she became a radio DJ her freshman year in college hosting her own show called “Mad Marj”, hence the stage name. Since that first experience Marjorie’s life played out much as one would expect; traveling, trying out several career paths, parenthood, etc. It wasn’t until a friend approached her 25 years later, that she would find herself taking that second leap of faith into the music world.” #regram Listen to the @whentojump podcast via link in IG HIGHLIGHTS . 📸 @thefacinator
#vfoscars here she comes! Woohoo.
Another Marj Madness.. with ringing ears I went home so incredibly happy! @simonhuck I have the best time doing this with you. To all of my wonderful friends who show up, dance and share your energy- YOU are the reason that I became a DJ.
Thank you @todayshow . It’s never too late to have a second act- look at me. (Link of segment in bio)
Ho Ho Ho from Twinkle McJingles over here. Let’s hear from my fellow Elves. 🧝🏻♀️ 🧝♂️ these are allegedly Elf emojis 😂.
Our 20 year old tree stand broke mid decoration and.... T-I-M-B-E-R, but here she is, in all of her glory 🎄resurrected with a zillion lights and our trusty ornaments glistening-telling their story. (FYI only the cheap ones broke) Christmas has started over here and we are excited. 🎅🏻🎄Love from the Gubelpeople.
#tbt to #Studio50 celebrating @bradcomisar’s fantastic Birthday. What an unbelievable and beautiful night. This picture captures the fine line between DJ booth & dance floor when Mad Marj gets going!🕺🏻💃🏼. #bc50
Loved seeing my brother @wgubes this weekend. I know he was relieved he wasn’t in a smocked outfit per our childhood.
I wonder who that was? HAPPY WEEKEND !! ❣️❣️❣️
RIP to the Prince of Chinz, Mario Buatta. I was raised with colors, flowers, and chinz galore! In those days men didn’t mind floral sofas (and frankly didn’t get involved in decorating the house). I will always love this sort of bedroom, it makes me feel cozy and takes me back to my roots. #waspdecor ❤️
Billy Gubes is a Porsche man til the end- however, he taught us about rare special cars with tremendous horsepower and torque. This 1972 Ferrari Daytona GTB/4 shooting brake is one of those examples. V12 and 352 horsepower, for a mini station wagon!! Thank you @jayson.fong for the 📸
Oh... when he put on her earring. #JuddNelson 😍 #80s
When your baby turns 14. #cyrusfourteen
In the blink of an eye.. you are 14. Cyrus this journey has been amazing. You are so resilient, brave, have an unbelievable sense of humor, yet you are so incredibly sweet and thoughtful. I love being your Momlette. Happy Birthday. I love you.
Thank you to the beautiful Kristina Pentti von Walzel and your love of music which brought me to Finland 🇫🇮 to DJ at your fabulous party. Side note- the Swedes were strong on the dance floor !! 💃🏼🕺🏻
This is what happens when you tell everyone in your group they have to zip-line, then you are the last to go-close your eyes and scream the whole way. The canyon tubing I’ve mastered at this point and even own a surf shirt to go again and again (who am I?) #parenting #bali
Bali is the word- it’s the word that you heard-It's got groove it's got meaning. Bali is the time, is the place, is the motion-Bali is the way we are feeling....... We are back! More memories to make. #Bali
thx social media for reminding me that 3 years ago this happened. #neverforgetyourteenagecrushes they might end up in your house. I still love you @duranduran- Good night! ⚰️
Here is another treasure from the 80’s. This is The Infirmary Ball 1987 aka being a Debutante. The Gubelpeople cheered so loudly compared to the other families sitting and clapping quietly at the Waldorf Astoria when I “came out” it was amazing. Wolf whistles and loud woohoos from all of them. As usual we did not behave. I had asked for a room far away from Billy Gubes who was in the Tower. I then gave my room key to every boarding school kid I knew. The noise and smoke coming down the hall was how you determined where the after party was. Of course this dress ended up being rolled into a ball, I wore all black and went out downtown #tbt
I have loved #erasure since 1985. Thank you @jwuntitled for sitting us right on the stage, singing all of the classics with me, and giving me the best Sunday night. #andybell #vinceclarke you still have it. We love you.
