Vanity Fair's 2008 International Best-Dressed List was just unveiled. WHO deserves it more then Ye?!?! Let's be real. There's not too many dudes out there doing it like he is. Most niggas are still afraid of wearing fitted clothing and bright colors - scared to experiment and express themselves though the way they dress. Say what you want about him, but he's my inspiration for just being myself.
Along with Mr. West is a list of some of my favs that made the list...
Every Black man needs a Michelle by his side. I LOVE her! She epitomizes what being a supportive woman is all about.
Karl Lagerfeld. How do you spell genius?
Daniel Craig. Dude makes me want to be Bond. Fly ass clothes, an Aston Martin and beautiful woman - ALL DAY!
The Becks. Are you really surprised they made the list?
I don't know where these places came from, but God bless 'em! It seems like a year ago they didn't exist and now you can't drive a mile without seeing one. WHERE did they come from? I need to know. I swear, I'm addicted. In fact, I'm going to get some tomorrow. Who's coming with me?!?!
THAT SHIT IS WACK!!!
Mr. 3 Stacks is preparing to release his new line this Fall - Benjamin Bixby!!! Man! I heard about it a couple of years ago and have been waiting for some pieces to leak on the net ever since. Here's what I found. The cardigan is SICK!!!
I can't wait to see what he does with the line. Stay tuned...
God how I loved this video in middle school!
I've been waiting on the next hip-hip version of the 2004 "Vote of Die" t-shirts that Diddy made popular. Here we have it..."Respect My Vote!"I feel like they're kind of late to the punch, but...whatev. Better late then never.
(Sigh) Cinespace was AMAZING last night! I mean, it's rarely ever a disappointment, but it's the absolute best when you get the right amount of liquor in your system, you go with a great group of friends and dope new artists perform.
The funniest thing that happened last night is I unintentionally hated on will.i.am. LMAO! He was gaming up this girl I went to high school with and I just interrupted and started talking to her. Dude is mad cool though. I chopped it up with him for a quick sec and got a picture. If he's only start making good music again...
Ha! I love my life!
Me & will.i.am

These chicks were cool.
What would a night in Hollywood be without hot dogs wrapped in bacon?!?!
Whoever said life after college was boring must have been a fucking lame! I mean, granted, life does get real. You acquire bills, you have to work everyday and your completely accountable for EVERYTHING you do. BUT I'm also having the time of my life! I feel like every year that passes is the best year of my life. I have been through a lot, but at the end of the day God makes life worth living - every day!
On the other hand, life might be a little too much fun at times. I feel like I'm "burning the candle at both ends" sometimes. I work full-time and play full-time. I'm ALWAYS doing something with somebody and I've kind of lost focus. I haven't been to the gym in almost a month. I hardly ever get more than 6 hours of sleep. And I haven't even taken the GMAT yet! Starting this Fall, I have to take it easy.
Theme for the Fall: Relax. Relate. Release.
Until then, Cinespace tonight!!!! LMAO!
Lovey introduced me to this artist a couple of months ago and I finally took the time to really listen to her music. Adele is DOPE! She's an English jazz singer out of London. She describes her music as "heartbroken soul." I love her!
LISTEN. Enjoy. Indluge...
We just had a MAJOR earthquake in L.A.! I'm sitting in my office on my computer and out of nowhere my building just starts shaking like crazy! A lot of people in my office freaked out because they're not from L.A. and have never experienced an earthquake. It's no big deal to me. Even though I haven't felt one like that since I was a kid.
BUT, all is well! Everyone I know is okay - I think. I need to make a few more calls...
Scarlett Johansson. Mmmm...
I want her to have my babies!
...I would definitely buy this!!! I'm definitely a novelty item pack rat. Marty McFly's Mattel hover board from Back to the Future II & III is up for auction on eBay. The starting bid is $30,000!
I used to intern for Mattel. Wonder if I could get a discount. Hmmm...
It's OFFICIALLY been a year since I changed my eating habits and started exercising.
I dropped 70lbs! I couldn't be happier with the way I feel - overall!
WHO in the hell gave George Foreman a reality show?!?! TV Land! That's who.
I was in the barber shop the other day and out of nowhere, the show just comes on. I didn't even know he had one. Anyway, it was probably thee most scripted reality show I've ever seen. George is a terrible actor! LoL! But, I have to give it to both him and TV Land for following the example of 'Run's House.' I'm all for ANY positive portrayals of Black families on television - or anywhere for that matter. George is definitely a family man - great father and husband. AND he's preacher. Which I didn't know. I still can't get over the fact that he named ALL of his sons George and one of his daughters Georgette. That's SO weird! Haha!
Kudos to George Foreman and TV Land.
Last night, after drinking half a bottle of 151 with Ant, I went to this club in Whittier to see my boy Dwan, a.k.a. Curtiss King, perform. The Green Turtle was having a showcase of up-and-coming hip hop artists. Needless to say ALL of the performances were SUPER wack! I don't know what it is about about L.A., but niggas tend to think that west coast rap music has to be one thing, one sound. I've heard all that before - '93 til infinity.
Of course, D ripped it!!! He's a super talented artist. Check him out at http://www.myspace.com/dwan32.
Mr. Curtiss King possessed off the holy spirit of hip hop! LoL!
Toya, Chuva and Nelle came out and showed their support.
My brothers from other mothers.
Ahhh! This is SO frustrating. I spotted these purple Todd's moccasins about a month ago and I CANNOT find them. These shits are SO DOPE! I actually saw this dude wearing them when I was on my lunch break one day (I work near the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica), but he walked away too fast for me to ask. I want them!!!
So...my boss has been talking about this self-defense class that he takes called Krav Maga. He's been trying to get me to come for months and I finally decided to go with him this morning. Can you say TIRED? That was one of the greatest workouts I've had in months. I was sweating in the first 10 minutes!!!
I feel GREAT right now! Let's go fitness! Haha!
Krav Maga (Hebrew קרב מגע: "close combat") is an eclectic self-defense and military hand-to-hand combat system developed in Israel, which assumes no quarter will be given, and emphasizes maximum threat neutralization in a "real life" context. It came to prominence following its adoption by various Israeli Security Forces.
I have a love/hate relationship with GQ Magazine. NO! Actually, I take that back. I honestly love GQ! I'm just not one for all the editorials. I usually just flip to the back of the book to see the fashion spreads.
I've been collecting every issue since I was in high school. Every now and then an issue hits the stands that's so good I honestly can't put it down! Well, the August issue with Seth Rogen on the cover is another one of those. It features some of the funniest comedic-actors in the game (the Judd Apatow troupe) and a dope ass Fall preview! I FUCKIN' LOVE IT!
BUY, enjoy, indulge...

ONE QUESTION! Where the fuck are Johan Hill, Michael Cera and Jason Segal???
Hmmm...kudos to CNN for the "Black in America" specials this week. If you're like me, you were glued to your TV Wednesday and Thursday night for the 2 hour segments. I was intrigued by the mere fact that CNN, or any network for that matter, was progressive enough to delve into the complexities of being an African-American in this country - unwelcome citizens, hated and most emulated, feared marvels. While I believe that they could have gone deeper into some of the issues in the 4 hours they had, I still applaud CNN for their...audacity!
CNN does = Politics
Anyway! Let's get to the subject at hand. This new artist, Kid Cudi is SICK! I was at a show of his with some friends about a month back at Cinespace and he killed it!
The mixtape is AWESOME! I haven't stopped listing to it all week!
