For The People

The Sugarhead Quarters is having thier 3 year anniversary party in New York's Lower East Side this thursday, October 25th. They plan on celebrating with an Art Exhibit and keepin it fun with a party. The exhibit is a collection of Bob Ross lanscapes that artists were sent from SHQ and told to do basically whatever they wanted. The list of participants is ridiculous. Reason, Crooks and Castles, Mass Appeal, 10 Deep, Alife, Mishka, Kid Acne, Mighty Healthy, King Stampede, whoa, wait just to name a few. If you can't make the show this week, it will be in the store for a couple of months.

Sugarhead Quarters is owned by sisters Carol and Phina Nakamoto


We beat out DC and Dallas as the countries' least attractive city according to a
poll from Travel and Leisure magazine. It's all those cheesesteaks and PBR's man. It's just a damn shame. I must say however, that I can assure you that the kids we roll with at Rife are pretty fuckin ill. We're gonna keep pushin' to make the Philthy Philth the Flyest Fuckin place on the East Coast. (oh wait, i guess this goes back to that unfriendly thing) oh WELL! Miami and San Diego are leaders of the attractive pack.

'The city of more than 1.5 million people was also found to be among the least stylish, least active, least friendly and least worldly, according to the "America's Favorite Cities" survey by Travel & Leisure magazine and CNN Headline News.'

but wait this is my favorite part

"The relative attractiveness of its residents is only a minuscule factor in evaluating a city's merit."

A Confection Complex

Tonight in center city Philadelphia restaurant Vallani will host their annual Fall Fashion Show, Candy Land. Come and check it out. It starts at 10:30 p.m. and there will be Stoli drink specials. It's gonna be pretty rad because the runway is going to extend from the restaurant windows out into the street. The street will be blocked off so that people can hang out more comfortably, the restaurant is kind of small. The designers tonight include Old City shop, Smak Parlour, known for their sweet aesthetic and in house production. Northern Liberties shop, Delicious Boutique, has the most amazing handmade corsets. Lola by Carla Montalvo, and the name of her line does it for me. The Labold Brothers Ink, some dope screen printers, psst...wait til you see how they close the show. There will be something for everyone guys, girls, etc.

Vallani is located at 1229 Spruce Street. See you there!

Gwen Stefani - Now That You Got It - Official Music Video

Ok. This song, wait the entire Sweet Escape album reminds me of working in the Macy's cosmetic department. That job was short lived by the way, my counter was BORING! But, I met some amazing people nonetheless. We played this album OUT by the time the holiday season ended. This was one of my favorites, so i have to post it. Gwen's videos are always so colorful and imaginative. Her style formula has transcended trend over the years, in fact Gwen is the trend.

Be The Brand--SSBA!!!

Forget you Hello Kitty. Introducing SSBA straight out of Tokyo. The lifestyke merchandise emulates attitude, but retains a nice feminist & political quality. Founder Yang Yun-mi has designed a lifestlye enterprise with creativity, poise, & rebellion. From mini-tables to salt, pepper & sugar shakers SSBA has it all down.

As always, we all work hard @ RIFE. Vicious is all over the hype.

Galliano and Diesel to Make Kids

It's just been announced that John Galliano has signed a licensing agreement with Diesel to develop a children's line for the next five years.

Diesel executive Renzo Rosso told WWD, "Galliano likes to play and create fairy-tale worlds even for adults. Imagine what he can do for kids."

The line will be for children 4-14 and should be available by next year. I'm so excited to see what he has in store for this kid...

The Poison

L.A painter Camille Rose Garcia.

Garcia has published a couple of books of her art and also a children's book, sort of, The Magic Bottle: A Blab! Storybook. She wrote and illustrated the story that stars Lulu Blackenshoe. Even though the book is in a children's format, the images will be much more appreciated by adults. The book is published by Fantagraphic Books.

McQueen Reigns Supreme

Alexander McQueen is hands down one of the most visionary designers in the game right now. His runway shows have reinvented the "show" aspect. McQueen's Spring 2008 collection made reference to one of his mentors, the late Isabella Blow. God bless that woman's soul. She was another original character in the fashion arena who passed away this year. Known for her extravagant style and her over the top hats, Blow basically discovered McQueen and put him on. So of course the Philip Treacy hats that he put down the runway were out of this world. The butterfly hat is an ornamental masterpiece. The collection as a whole is very exciting, the feather dresses and head pieces are imaginative showpieces. Incorporating the look through cosmetics is just another daring step McQueen takes to actualize his vision. I can guarantee that you will be seeing more of this collection as the periodicals start to put out fresh stories. Thank god Vogue let Sarah Mower write the runway review, I don't think anyone would have done it better. Check it out at

Feelin all this Energy

Dia De Los Muertos.
I think ill be doing this all month in respect to Mexican culture and my own interest in skulls. Life and Death is a Beautiful Thing.

It's a Puerto Rican Thing.


yo here is where i get Puerto Rican on yo ass. do not hate. Jennifer Lopez has a new album that drops on Tuesday. the album is titled 'Brave'. Regardless of reviews i will be the first in line to grab that shit. Now i understand, most def, i will be the first one to say home girl can't act, damn she ain't the best singer, but she can perform. She is confident and she can dance. She delivers a performance like no other ( i got DVDs to prove it, lets go) and she is the highest paid Latina actress/performer EVER. That doesn't come from being some sideline chick. I don't care what you say, she came from being a dancer in the Boogie Down, HUSTLIN' to a CEO of her own industry that includes feature films, television shows, fashion, and music. A multifaceted dynamic powerhouse that has taken over the globe and she's barely hit her mid thirties. A muse to many and a leader in her own respect, best believe i am writing about this. Oh and catch Mrs. Marc Anthony on the road with her man. I can t wait...Boriqua WHAT!
