Who else but hosts Wendy Stuart and Tym Moss could “spill the tea” on their weekly show “If These Walls Could Talk” live from Pangea Restaurant on the Lower Eastside of NYC, with their unique style of honest, and emotional interviews, sharing the fascinating backstory of celebrities, entertainers, recording artists, writers and artists and bringing their audience along for a fantastic ride.
John “SohoJohnny” Pasquale will be a featured guest on “If These Walls Could Talk” with hosts Wendy Stuart and Tym Moss on Wednesday, April 14th, 2021 at 2 PM ET live from the infamous Pangea Restaurant.
Wendy Stuart is an author, celebrity interviewer, model, filmmaker and hosts “Pandemic Cooking With Wendy,” a popular Youtube comedic cooking show show born in the era of Covid-19, and TriVersity Talk, a weekly web series with featured guests discussing their lives, activism and pressing issues in the LGBTQ Community.
Tym Moss is a popular NYC singer, actor, and radio/tv host who recently starred in the hit indie film “JUNK” to critical acclaim.
Everyone has the fire, but only the champions know how to ignite the spark. Such is SohoJohnny, a man with a passionate vision who like a cascade of fireworks plunges into the night sky and shatters the darkness. Through his quest for the celebration of music, and desire to share it, he has discovered that you have to find what sparks a light in you so that you in your own way can illuminate the planet.
Soho Johnny was born in the heart of NYC, relocating to the Bronx, and as a youth raised in the 70’s he recalls hanging out in his garage with his friends, surrounded by floating disco balls, and strobe lights while listening to classic rock and disco. After working for his dad in a family trucking business, he later ventured out into the world of real estate and became a commercial real estate mogul, dealing with buildings in Manhattan, hence the name SohoJohnny. SohoJohnny is the owner of Pep Real Estate.
PEP Real Estate is a full-service real estate management company with an office located at 51 Wooster Street in SoHo. The firm, headed by John and Ronald Pasquale, provides the following services: sales and leasing of retail stores, offices, lofts, condos, restaurants and nightclubs and event planningconsulting for short-term needs.
Throughout his journey he has always triumphed in “The Passion of Music”, which become his focus and his joy.
Johnny’s younger journey took place at a time when there were dangerous gangs roaming the streets in the Bronx and the subways were splattered with graffiti. Johnny’s persona claimed a duality, allowing him to be an honor roll student in the parochial schools he attended by day, yet he was out on the streets at night trying to avoid trouble.
In his quest to fulfill his love for music, which resonated with him nearly his entire life, and his desire to share his excitement and vibrant spirit, Soho Johnny decided to create music concerts, parties and entertainment for all to enjoy. These events include people who have the same passion for music, those who wish to celebrate life itself, and giving back to those less fortunate than him.
Feeling blessed by his success in real estate he wished to “give back” and became involved with various charities including the American Cancer Society. A portion of the proceeds from these star-studded events are donated. Aside from his philanthropy, Johnny loves people. He loves to be surrounded by large groups, he loves parties and in his own words he loves, “exuding that feeling of happiness and well-being and the profound blessing and appreciation I have for being alive and having what I have, and being able to enjoy life like this.”
Soho Johnny is an authentic soul that thinks, acts, and creates with his heart. He’s bold and kind, and impassioned by music, life and the human spirit. A modern-day prophetic visionary and caring individual with a kaleidoscope of ideas, Soho Johnny will continue on his mission to spread music, joy and illumination to the human soul and spirit by bringing forth even more sonically thrilling events.

Michael P. Dineen grew up in Huntington, Long Island, New York. He studied and taught karate for over 20 years. He was a trainer to professional athletes.
After high school, Dineen pursued a life of crime for more than 20 years and survived to tell this story, his story.
“Suburban Gangsters: A Compelling Tale Of Life In The Drug Trade”
Sometimes in life the direction you choose could come down to making a choice that at the time didn’t seem like a big deal, only looking back you knew it wasn’t smart. Had his conversation gone differently with his father in the spring of 1985, Patrick may never had become a criminal. While shooting hoops with his old man that breezy afternoon in April, they struck up a conversation. Patrick had been kicked out of Walt Whitman High School a few months earlier, but had been working full-time ever since. He was working hard at the time and would have kept at it. But his dad’s rejection, and the way he did it, burned Patrick badly.
Patrick doesn’t blame his dad for becoming a criminal, but that was the final straw. Somehow, he was determined to find a way to get that Mustang GT his dad wouldn’t cosign for him. Selling cocaine would help him to achieve that. That’s when he began hustling.
This was just the beginning of Patrick’s drug selling days. He sold and trained and trained and sold. He worked with the cops, the FBI, and the DEA.
It may feel like a quick high. You may think just one more big sale and you can get out. But you’ll learn that the life of drugs and crime doesn’t pay.

The FMs (femmes, female to males, fuck me sillies) are a Brooklyn based group combining elements of industrial/synth/pop with a glam/punk attitude, advancing androgyny and activism. Dancing shoegaze machines menacing hymns on the future zeitgeist. Symphonic stoner rock nightmares. The FMs’ bizarro live shows incorporate gender bending interpretive dance with powerful electric insanity evoking a contemporary nihilist take on 1970’s glam antics. Condoms are gifted while demanding folks stop overpopulating the planet. At times everyone tries to twerk. The FMs simply want to save the world without being dicks about it.
The FMs are featured in the hit Showtime movie “Fluidity,” performing live the new single “Change Your Men Up.” “Fluidity” is a story of ten millennials living in New York City whose sexual lives intersect in the age of social media – where likes, impressions, and virtual “connections” threaten the very notion of personal relationships and human intimacy. The film was written by Michael Leeds and Linda Yellen (who also directs the film) and stars Nico Tortorella, Isabella Farrell, Tommy Dorfman, Leyna Bloom and Miles McMillan. The new single featured in “Fluidity” was remixed by Patrick Seymour of The Eurythmics.
The single “Change Your Men Up” is a prelude to the forecasted double remix EP’s “Organic Hate” and “Synthetic Love” set to be released on August 23rd, 2019, which is being unveiled in celebration of the two year anniversary of The FMs debut album “Machinacene Epoch.”
The single will be available on all digital platforms on Friday August 2nd, 2019.
At only 21-years-old, break out artist, singer and songwriter Jessie Berg, has already been recognized by some of the biggest names in the music industry and has just released her first single and music video “Monster”, produced by the Aristocats.
Jessie Berg was recently discovered by Kent Jacobs, who has worked with world famous bands such as, The Police, The Cult and REM to name a few. Miss Berg’s style of music is pop, but also identifies in the R&B category, and she describes her art as a mix of both. Her strongest influences derive from emotionally- driven female storytellers such as Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys, and Cher.
Miss Berg describes “Monster” in the pop genre, but more left of center pop. Her inspiration for the song came from that suffocating feeling she felt from the pressure conform. “My song talks about being trapped and influenced by others and the pressures we face everywhere in society today. The line that best describes my feeling in life right now is ‘I just wanna be me’.”
“Monster” was shot in May of 2019 at an old burned down house and as Berg describes, “It was surreal, shooting in the dark shell of a home perfectly captured the feeling we wanted to be portrayed. At the beginning of the video, there is a strong sense of me being shackled in the old burnt down house which truly is a symbol of me being trapped. In the end, I’m out of the house which represents my freedom from the challenges I face today.” The Video was Directed by “RAGE”.
Jessie has been trained in vocals, Songwriting, theatre, dance, piano and is emerging with guitar and says, “Music has always been a part of my life. I would attribute the start of my music career to my grandmother who has always encouraged me to sing and is a true inspiration.”
Miss Berg explains her passion for her messaging and platform in a way that drives her towards success. Jessie Berg says “I think having a platform comes with a lot of responsibility. You have the power to influence people for the better, which is what I want to do. I guess my biggest thing is I want to be an artist that is honest with people and be a shoulder for people to lean on. I think it’s important to promote individuality, confidence, and not being afraid of what other people think. I’m always so inspired by women who use their platform to talk about the real issues/ thing’s others are afraid to bring up. I want to take on a role like that. I’m not looking to change the world with my platform just yet, but if I can be a positive and encouraging influence and bring joy to even one person with my music than I feel like that’s enough.” Follow Jessie Berg @jessiebergg
Guru Yogi Mohan Offers an Insightful Interview about Spiritual Science to Permanently Reverse Illness, Disease, Special Needs, & Chronic Pain.
Stories have been continuously circulating about a Guru in India who is consistently healing a wide variety of diseases, illnesses, and other issues. People travel from all over the globe to meet him and be treated at his center. Can he be the Modern Day Buddha?
Celebre Media VIP had the pleasure of speaking with Guru Yogi Mohan for an in-depth discussion on his practices—how he taps into the energies of the universe to heal, treat, and repair the human mind, body, and soul.
Who did you train with, and does everyone have some type of relationship with energies, like yourself?
My father is my teacher, and he talked about the invisible energies when I was only 4-years old. Then he brought many Masters to teach me. One of my masters, Siva Prebhakara Siddha Logical (https:www.SivaprabhakaraSiddhayogi.org), has the extraordinary power to preserve the body from damage and aging. He has been given a light of knowledge and keys, but he teaches only for self-preservation.
As a healer, do you have to also protect yourself from unwanted energy?
I can reorganize and heal any kind of negativity, like toxins, energy fields, gravitation, and levitation. I have a self-healing capacity, if I experience any accidents or disease.
What are some basic things people can do to help restore their health and/or chakras?
Health is very important and truly connected with knowledge. Many sciences are behind the sustainability of health. The human body is organized like that because there are many kinds of metabolism.
The first form of metabolism derives from the discharge of Human Pheromones. As per the thought process of a human being, a corresponding chemical (chemical pheromones) discharges from the body through the pores (sweat holes). Most of the pheromonesdischarged are toxins and mood-changing chemicals for a 3rd person. The degree of negative thought (jealousy and greed) is discharged in pheromones. Ancient mastersare restricted in only practicing spirituality and kind-heartedness.
Chakras are not managed by the self—they are byproducts of thought process and action, and are associated with many energies also. Energies are classified in many forms,depending on factors in a human body. Upon understanding the structure of the body, one can easily organize by themselves. Each person containsunique algorithms that the body constitutes.There are regulations and laws based on the intensity of the substance of the body.
Do you believe cancer and other diseases develop from blocked energy and/or negative energy? Do you believe it also correlates with how the individual’s mother was feeling while pregnant with the child?
The body has many layers and classifications. Biologically, the physiological body is a bio-massthat structurally has no divinity. It is a mechanism to pull emotionally when and where required. After birth and the first cry, while in-taking the air through oxygen, the body is establishing a relation to nature. From this end, one is starting to accept visible and non-visible energies. Most of the energies are non-visual—like air, smell, sound etc.—but when one is conscious about all of those things, he/she can keep a safe distance from negative and positive energies without classifications. Knowing about the classified energies around us, help us to organize them as well.
A mother, during pregnancy, is the logistic manager indispensing the necessary substances to the baby, inside, technically speaking. The relationship between the mother and baby is connected with emotion, and that creates emotional attachment to the baby from the mother.
There is also a protectivehormone (pheromones) discharging from the mother’s body to save the child from external negatives in all forms. In most of the cases, the mother is not able to analyze or experience the negatives around her. However, the mother also serves as a conductor to distance anything fully or partially to the baby inside. Whatever affects the mother, will also affect the baby—and in the case of sound toxins, that affects 4x more than the mother, because the baby is living in water, and sound travels in water 4x faster than air.
How did you know you had healing hands? Was it something you were born with, or did you have to cultivate it?
Basically, I am from a traditional family of physicians, and we have knowledge about non-popular, traditional information. When I was a child of 4 or 5 years of age, I use to dispense medicine when my grandfather was not home. When I was 8 years old, my grandfather was sometimes away from home and would not be back soon. Someone brought a dead body to my home. I inquired the cause of death, which was due to being struck in the head by a falling coconut from a very high coconut tree, and he lost his breath immediately. I attended this case, and by his luck, he opened his eyes in few minutes after I touched him. That is the first time that I noticed my ability to do something—it is not cultivated.
What is the cause for Autism? Do you believe it’s linked to the fruit and vegetables that we are consuming? Here in the United States, it seems they have linked it to the pesticides being sprayed on all of our produce? What is your take on it?
Pesticides may damage the brain chemically. As I told you, by the constitution itself, a human body is with many kinds of classification and definitions—Biological Body, Neurological Body, and The InvisibleBody (Energy) with energy and broken particles. Again, it has subclassifications.
The Biological Bodyis the expressive emotional body that defines us as human, just as every other animal by physiology. Any problem with this is can be managed using pathological assessments and dispensing of drugs/medications. Any intaking, like food (especially fruits) andwater are for the biological body as a fuel. Upondigestion, it will be discharged as waste. This body and its respective action have no specific culture and knowledge. It is a mechanism to represent all emotional activities. Any intaking of toxins with food/water can be reflected and recognized within24 hours. This aspect does not affect Autism or other disabilities.
The Neurological Body Systemreacts with chemicals, instantly. Any poisons, pesticides, and chemical intaking in food will be apparent via reflexology very quickly, especially via gases and pheromones. These are mood-changing substances that can also be treated medically and will not cause those mentioned conditions.
For Autism, there is another reason. It is not a physiological and neurological factor. There is an Invisible Bodyin between the Biological Body and Neurological Body. Invisible Body is a chain of cavity vacuum space that is the 3rd part of the body—ultra- and infra-lights are thefundamental energies. All those lights are invisible, read on color scales. Additionally, there are cavities all over the the body that work as conductors of energy. Whenever there are damages this conductor, the body can convert to Autism or other conditions that are not detected by any medical device and/or pathological approaches. This condition fundamentally deals with energies in a different form.
Collectively, it appears as a shadow between 2 body classifications—a conductor between the physiological and neurological segments of the body. When it limits the transferof information from one area to another area of the body, a form of data being blocked, then a deviation in behavior—irregularities and mannerisms—are expressed. However, when the blocking of data is alleviated from that vacuum path, the symptom of Autism disappeared.
How do we live a more sustainable life?
Life is defined as live happily, health, and without disease, until the end of life. Basically, sustainability is the knowledge in how to live well—it is actually technical and scientific in understanding.
The ancient masters described this science through 64 branches for organizing the complete society, as per the scientific classifications for sustaining life. It has been the cause of rituals in spirituality in various forms. In other words, all the major religions, especially Buddhism and Hinduism have been formed for the establishments of the living science for effective and healthy living.
Detailed understanding about the study and practice of spirituality can bestow a considerable change in society with believing in God as a good remedy to reform society. All those things also serve to create, format, and organize chemical energies (human pheromones is chemical energy it acts correspondingly). Establishing knowledge centers, connecting with ancient thoughts, and identifying the meaning of modern science are the tools that offer an awareness about the sustainability of Life.
More people are beginning to understand that we are all vibrational beings and are creators in our Life. How can we all manifest healing in our own lives? Is there a chant, prayer, or song that you suggest?
Knowledge is the key for anything—complete knowledge—like joining two different particles together. A sperm and an egg are two living organisms. Independently each has no soul. The union of an egg and sperm is creating the 3rd energy—also known as the soul. The soul is creating the relationship—togetherness—that results in the birth of a being. These are the invisible particles—the universal one that exists everywhere. It can be joined anytime where the carrying of biological mass is good for carrying it—and when it is not good for carrying it, can also be separated into its original form.
Living healthy means that we have to maintain our body to be sustainable to accommodate the soul energy.Consciousness plays an integral role in this topic. There are thousands of classifications in consciousness. Consciousness in everything—taste, smell, sounds,etc.—when one understands the conscious point, the individual can be well and good.
For beginners, who may or may not know how to meditate? What is the best way to start?
As previously mentioned, the3 classifications of the body are the Biological Body, Neurological Body, and Invisible Particles. The Neurological Body can misguide the Biological Body by spreading many hormones (pheromones) that act to do many activities. Major activities can sometimes cause damage to the biological body. Meditation is a process that can change the action of the Neurological Body and Biological Body.
The simple practice of meditation enables the Biological and Neurological Body to spin together and release a shell of emotions to clear a path for the Spiritual space (invisible energies) that will rule the body in better way. Yoga means “join together.”The togetherness of both the emotional body and biological body is a catalyst for all proceeding thought process that creates balanced energy and better health. Understanding the theory and physics in meditationis the easiest way to handleit.
We have seen videos of you healing children and adults around the world. Are there any disease or mental illnesses that you cannot heal?
In many ways, our body is always alerted with cancers. As I told you, there is aninvisiblevacuum space that does not communicate with biological and neurological areas effectively. When the biological body issuspended from the neurological body, the oxygenation and other circulations will be limited, and invisible energy will blocked there. This becomes anoxia and later hypoxia—the cause of cancers.A well-organized body has no damage—and will cured naturally overnight—without the need for any substance to the body.
How does someone come to meet with you to cure themselves or a loved one?
First of all, the actual problem can be different from his/her understanding about it. But in the first few minutes with me, they will feel changes. I view everyone like an infant and loved one. I see the body and invisible body as different. In most cases, the problem typically involves the invisibleparticles. If it is a serious problem, the time for biological cell division is applicable—it can be multiplications of the 21 days—that involves a type of broken particle re-establishment and regularizing. Results occur in few days. All of the cures happen on their own, as I do not dispense any medicine. But we do have medical centers who need to use it. Every being is the child of God and keeping a brotherhood in each other.
Can you cure all diseases?
Yes, I balance the wellness of the body by organizing its happiness and well-being—disease, disabilities and deformities.
How do people get in contact with you?
Anyone can schedule or request an appointment through the website or email. Phone calls are not recommended because I am not able to attend the phone all of the time.

Nathan Nelson emerged onto the Atlanta Blues scene in the early 2000’s. With his rich southern vocals and deeply soulful playing style, Nathan quickly became an artist that audiences sought out and local musicians were eager to collaborate with.

She also started acting during her childhood appearing in various musical theater productions. Moving to Nashville at the age of 20, Cherie began singing background vocals in the studio and on tour for acts like Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Gretchen Wilson, Martina McBride, Mary J.

Search the Internet for the top 10 “inventions” of all time and you’ll come up with fire, the wheel, the printing press, the Internet, etc. Change the search for “innovations” and some of the same items appear again: fire and the printing press, for example.
Who among us believes we can come up with new ideas as powerful those? Not I! So let’s step down from such mighty ideas as fire. Let’s think more humbly.
The French, for example, get credit for their innovative take on bread. The slender baguette was popularized in the 1920’s as a response to new labor laws requiring bread to be made more quickly and easily than traditional round loaves. Thinner and longer baguettes took less time and effort, which is how a famous innovation was born.
Next, a Japanese example. Portable, pre-recorded music the size of an index card had been around since 1954. By the time pre-recorded audiotapes emerged in the late 1960’s, Sony had invented a large hand-held “Walkman” to make music portable. After the company’s co-founder asked for something more travel-friendly to use with headphones, Sony launched its compact music player in 1979. It soon took over the 80’s as “The Walkman.”
Those are impressive illustrations, for sure. But as someone who’s been privileged to be part of less grand improvements in my particular field, I’ve come to appreciate that a valuable innovation doesn’t have to be earth-shattering. The simple fact is that ANY of us can innovate … as long as we bring the right open-minded attitude to our daily lives.
Myself, I’ve been lucky to be in the right place at the right time. That has given me the opportunity to play a supportive role in two innovations I believe in. But my ultimate point is much broader than what these stories illustrate. It’s to share how good it feels to help change things for the better.
I get no “credit” at all for the first innovation, and it’s certainly not a grand one. We’re not talking about inventing the light bulb! Merely changing the world’s perceptions of what a tequila could actually be. Even so, as humble as that is, I can tell you that it’s been satisfying to be a part of creating new perceptions. Here’s how I got the chance ….
In January 2005, I joined The Patrón Spirits Company as Chief Operating Officer. For decades the words that came to mind when someone said “tequila” often included “cheap” … “strong” … “harsh” … “foul.” It was the kind of drink you’d only consume if you could first DISGUISE its taste with sugar, lime, salt or whatever else could get you through it.
Talk to someone back then about trying Patrón Tequila for the first time in their lives, and often you’d hear stories about some nightmarish experience of doing shots with a different tequila — a poor quality tequila … one that led the consumer to kneel down before what Americans sometimes call the “porcelain goddess,” awaiting the drinker in the bathroom.
But the truth is, Patrón was (and still is) different. Unlike other tequilas, it began with only the finest agave plants in Jalisco State’s highlands. Inferior, cheaper ingredients were simply not acceptable. What’s more, its production never cut corners. Patrón used only ancient, genuinely historic methods for crushing the juice — the roller mill and tahona wheel. None of the mass manufacturing used in ordinary tequila brands.
Every product was aged in American oak barrels and bottled by hand. In fact – for real – over 60 human hands touched each individual bottle of Patrón. From artisans blowing the glass, with no two bottles alike … to personally applying the labels, each numbered by hand … along with wrapping every bottle. That steady approach to quality and craft paid off in consumer acceptance.
Knowledge supports effective innovation and our qualitative research with consumers taught us never to advertise Patrón as a “tequila” but as an “ultra-premium white spirit.” Previously, that phrase was pretty much limited to vodkas, gins and rums. No tequila was smooth enough to join the club … until Patrón’s innovations demonstrated a new possibility for how tequila could actually TASTE!
My task was to help spread word of the product’s quality and authenticity around the globe. I’m not saying it was easy, but the core product was a reality. By being consistent and truthful in every country, bar and liquor store I visited, I was glad to play a part in changing the global perception of what a tequila couldbe: ultra-premium!
How successful was the effort? Patrón became the world’s #1 tequila brand in retail value. Okay, so it wasn’t the wheel. But within that product category and in its industry, that transformation was considered awesome. I’m grateful I had the chance to experience being part of it.
Innovations aren’t limited to products, of course.
In the fall of 2018, I was honored to recommend a totally new approach to the global duty free industry … a change that you, yourself, might experience when you travel in years to come.
My presentation took place in October, 2018 at the Trinity Forum conference in Shanghai, China. The focus of that annual event is global airport commercial revenues … reflecting your purchases in duty free shops around the world. Those transactions require the interactions not just of retailers, but also of the airlines that bring you to the stores … and the airports in which they are housed.
What I was excited to propose was a response to today’s digital era in which younger consumers, especially, are much more likely to place orders from their mobile phones than to actually walk into a store. The future of shopping is digital, plain and simple. Just look at the kids around you on their mobile phones!
In suggesting a new approach to global duty free selling, I was inspired by and gave credit to other innovators in the field. Example: AirAsia has been pioneering a mobile app for its travel retail business. Emirates airlines is building an information system to sell consumer services for an entire trip. Even Uber is creating mobile digital services for customer convenience with Starbucks, OpenTable and United Airlines.
Those are all signs of a changing world – and the need to “get digital” in appealing to traveling Millennials and younger passengers. The younger people are these days, the more they live online … doing everything on mobile phones.
So what was the proposed innovation? A new global duty free phone app that would bring different travel retail organizations together for customer convenience. Among the primary three involved were:
TFWA — an association of brands participating in the global duty free market.
MEADFA – the Middle East & Africa Duty Free Association.
IAADFS – the International Association of Airport Duty Free Stores.
The core idea of the app is to help each participating business reach Millennials and iGens via digital media … enticing them to purchase by texting incentives, savings and special deals to their phones. Real benefits for consumers = more business for the marketers offering them.
Receptivity to the idea was exciting. Don’t be surprised in the next few years if you experience innovations in the ways you make duty free purchases, can pay for them and then have them delivered to wherever you want – all via your phone!
I admit it: these few innovations I’m pleased I could be a small part of are relatively puny. It’s absurd to compare them to inventing a light bulb, fire or a printing press. But that is precisely my point! Any of us … EACH of us … can innovate, even in tiny ways. And doing so feels good.
All that’s required is a willingness to step back from your daily life. Give yourself a chance to take a fresh look at the various things you do at work and at home. What’s working especially well around you and in your life? What isn’t? You might find that taking even a small bit of time to ask yourself those questions leads you to a new idea to experiment with and learn from.
You’ve got nothing to lose by giving life a fresh look and – who knows? – your own MENTAL “light bulb” might switch on as a result!
