Barack X Jay-Z “Brush Your Shoulders Off” Video Mash-Up

18 April 2008, 21.58 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

This blog is so far off the rails in terms of what’s its content is supposed be today that I figured I’d just pile on with this video, in which Jay’s “Dirt Off Your Shoulders” song is mashed up with clips from the campaign, including Barack’s speech yesterday when he channels Mr. Carter and literally brushes his shoulders off.

Murakami @ Brooklyn Museum

18 April 2008, 21.24 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

If it’s unlikely that you’re gonna make it to the Murakami exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum, then check out the images on Flickr by Director Dave, who was there on opening night.

Here’s one image of his from that evening:

^^Ever since my meltdown over people not crediting us for our shots of the Tokidoki Asics collabo (which I subsequently apologized for!), I’ve noticed that I basically rip other people’s images non-stop! I DO give credit though, people. Well, most of the time anyway.

Yes! It’s Friday afternoon! I hate to tell you this guys, but I am flying away on Sunday for a week, and Samia will still be gone, too. I’m gonna recommend some of my fave reads in the meantime, plus try and leave some posts for David to throw up while I’m gone. You haven’t heard the last of me, that’s for sho!

Mulberry Bag: Fall 2008

18 April 2008, 18.45 | Posted in Accessories, Fashion | No comments »

Okay people, in between the celebrity fixations today, let me squish in a little fashion. Here’s a bag from Mulberry, a lux English label, I spotted on Style.com today. Love the color, the shine and the shape. This is a slick bag! And that’s the label’s theme in general: classic but with an edge.

^^I gotta find a better screen grab program. This one and the Marc Jacobs sneaker one before it are way too blurry!

Rihanna in a Blue Bikini

Can you tell I’m a little obsessed with RhiRhi lately? Because really, there is no good reason to post this photo up. Generally I at least stick with images in which she’s wearing something fashionable. But this one? Nothing expcept for the fact that I love the color of her suit.

Listen, just consider it a gift. From me to all of you who appreciate a beautiful woman, whether you or male or female.

These are actually men’s sneakers, but we females are used to having to wear dudes’ kicks. Shoot, until a couple years back, if we didn’t have men’s kicks we’d have none at all!

Hap tip to StyleDash for the item.

Mariah Wears Short Shorts

18 April 2008, 15.54 | Posted in Fashion, Other | No comments »

Say what you will, it matters not a molecule. MiMi is a diva and she can wear whatever the hell she wants. When you have her voice, her number of classics and her longevity, you can do the same:

More images after the flip. On this page, we’re dedicating our flashback Friday video to her days before she added on boobs and started straightening her hair within an inch of its life. If you’re a young’n and listen to songs like “Touch My Body” and don’t get what all the hype is about, this video of “If it’s Over” explains it all. Watch for when Mariah actually giggles to herself, knowing she’s about to completely chop it down.

RhiRhi: Amazing Dress

17 April 2008, 18.56 | Posted in Books, Fashion, Other | 1 comment »

Over at Ultimate-Rihanna there are new scans of RhiRhi from her Afro magazine (sorry, couldn’t find the link) cover story. Within the story, she’s wearing a dress that’s stupid amazing. I hope whoever is hooking RhiRhi up with her fashion is being well compensated ’cause she deserves it for doing such a great job of setting this young woman so far apart from the pack just via her clothing choices alone. Not that I think RhiRhi is totally being constructed from the outside, but how she’s being dressed is not small part of her image.

I posted up a Vans/Greg “PNUT” Galinksy jacket a couple days ago and mentioned that I was waiting on a resend of some hightops from the same collabo. Well, they still haven’t come so in the meantime, here are the slip-ons:

Adidas Originals Campaign Kick-off

17 April 2008, 17.40 | Posted in Sneakers | No comments »

Adidas kicked-off its relaunch of the Superstar yesterday. The relaunch is being done in conjunction with Facebook, where you can finds all sorts of photos and videos and all the other things that sneakerheads love.

Here’s one project that was part of the launch: Adidas created giant Superstars and had artists from Upper Playground and Surface to Air use them as a canvas/wall.

You can find more images of this event here.

And I don’t know about you, but I’m sort of mad at Adidas right now The Superstar is an iconic style and I feel like over the past few years, Adidas has been pimping it out like a workhorse ho, with no consideration for its status as hip-hop royalty. I mean this is what, at least the 3rd time they’ve done some special, “limited” program centered around the Superstar?? Damn shame if you ask me.

Michelle Obama was on Steven Colbert last night and she was looking great! Blue suits her:

JKennedy Michelle: She was like J. Kennedy

^^There’s a couple of instance during the interview when Steve really cracks her up and you get to see a less serious side of her that she doesn’t reveal too often (at least that I’ve ever seen). 

Wanna see the video? Click here

Or how about the “Ms. Fat Booty” video in which Mos Def raps: “She was like J.Kennedy. Word bond to my mother, man, she was THAT ill.” ‘Member THAT joint??
