Fresh Cuts

The Mezzanine, Fader, and Loaded present

If I could have one superhero power, I would be able to transplant myself to dope places and make it to work in the morning with the snap of a finger, sans the vicious hangover. Ok, details of the show, Thursday December 4th at The Mezzanine in San Fransisco. Hearts Revolution, from New York, and one of my favorite new bands out of SF, Lilofee, are supporting, Sebastian Tellier, who finishes the night, yes! You can get tickets at

Sebastien Tellier's video for Divine. Love it.

Get Dirty

Our girl, Nikki Moose just started a new blog, Definitely fashion forward in context she offers an enthusiatic perspective on emerging trends, highlights designers, and her choice cuts of new gear is edgy but on point. Loving the clean look of the page and logo. Nikki is a model and all around cool chick. Don't sleep Philly girls!

Dance Dance Revolution!

For real though, I was at the Video Game Expo in Philadelphia this past Saturday with Omoi, we had a table in the anime room. Right next door was the DDR room. Ready for this? 32 convention goers all in sync staring at a huge projection screen gettin down with some DDR. That room was jam packed all day. Get into it! Now that we are getting all dancey check out this party in New York December 5th.

I've heard mixed reviews on Le Poisson Rouge, in any case, the lineup is enough to get even anime kids excited, one would hope.

Nails Diddy!!

This weeks edition takes inspiration from Mishka's eyeball logo.

Quote of the Week

And it's only Monday! This came from my boy, Nick, last night after a quick stop at Bob and Barbara's on my way home from work. This kid is outta control. Too funny.

"Nobody needs white girls anymore, they are out of style. It's Obama time! Beige power!"

Nick, as a beige girl, I guess I gotta say I feel you on this one. Ha!

Itinerary- Top Of The Line

Cope2, a celebrated New York graffiti legend, is curating another show to feast your eyes on at the Showroom Gallery in the Lower East Side section of NYC. Featuring art stars that have emerged out of the pop, street, and contemporary arenas. The reach these artists have goes beyond the canvas or wall that they are painting due to commercial work and the implementation propaganda statements on politics and contemporary society. The space is small, so I recommend getting there early. The show will only be up for five days. If you are in the area it is definitely worth checking out. There isn't much of a sign to the place. You might see people standing out front, but I remember it because it is a few doors down from Toy Tokyo, and right around the corner from this dope Korean spot. Here are some works from some of the artists participating.

Shepard Fairey


Ron English's 'Obama'
Other artists include, Cope2, Revok, Can2, Sharp, and Siloette.

Japanese Girl Represents

This is Eri Yoshida. She's 16 and has just been drafted by an independent league's pro team, the Kobe 9 Cruise. Say What?! This girl plays tough! She says that she wants to follow in the footsteps of Boston Red Sox pitcher, Tim Wakefield. He's been with Boston since 1995, and helped them win the historic World Series in 2004. Good choice, Eri. Apparently, this girl has a mean sidearm pitch that made her stand out. Break barriers, stand out from the crowd.

Stretch Ya Game Out

Friday Nite! My boy Dre put it togetha the best.

Yo! this friday just got a bit more interesting. So, you know this friday is Lil' Stevie Bloodbaths party send-off. If you didnt know, don't feel bad. Its just one of the better parties yer gonna go to this season. Anywho. The pot just got a lil more spicy cuz Friday nite is also gonna be a TOWN JEWELERZ reunion. See, not too long ago (before you were "into" dance music) Ol' Bloodbath was apart of a trio that bashed up dancehalls on a regular basis. Him, Ian St. Laurent, and MUTHAFUCKIN OPALROCK were crushin shit when most kids were still crossin the bridge to go to "hardcore" shows (yeah you motherfucker. I seen you at the TLA lined up for that shitty show. Aint no future in ya frontin). For me, i was comin down the DNB mountain and finally startin' to give proper respect to the other dj's in this town. And they were among the first to get my respect. They're my kinda dj's; no rockstar bullshit. Just beat-slangin. Dancefloor rockin business. Thats it.

So yeah its gonna be a roadblock come friday. The line up was crazy before; Excel, Jay Yo, Diamond Girl, Bloodbath himself. Now with the JEWELERZ steppin on deck its goin down as a 2008 classic. we're definitely gonna send steven off to la la land already homesick. I couldn't be anymore stoked, amped, AND excited. And if you make it home before 7am yer a fuckin puritan.

Your party is weak and i will inform you of this fact.

Mind ya P's and Q's on this one. Gonna be a lot of camera flashes.

Quote of the Day

Said (it's pronounced Sigh-eed) just came into the store, and I just got my quote of the day, perhaps the entire week.
This came after I told him a bit of news...

"I hate you, and I hate Massachusetts!"

Haha! Oh, Said, he hates Massachusetts because he had a friend who went to Harvard that despised Boston. I guess she thought that there were a lot of rude people there. He's a brash frenchman who owns the coffee shop next door, La Citadelle. The place has great coffee for cheap. Highly recommend. Also, on side note, Said really doesn't hate me, in fact I think I humor him the most. Ah Philadelphia, how I will miss you so.

Oh, Rei

Since I blogged about the Comme de Garcons collaboration with H&M a few posts back, I thought this video would supplement the pictures. The video is a viewing of the looks with comments from guests. The collection, perhaps the boldest move from the mass retailer had people waiting in lines of 300+ to get thier Comme fix. You can still pick up pieces on ebay, not into it? Check the video instead.

A return to mind blowing narratives. Thank god.

Sweet Face

Look who came into the shop! This awesome woman came in the other day and introduced us to, Crepe Suzette, her customized Blythe doll! Green hair?! Really? Amazing. When she closed her eyes her makeup was green and yellow. The doll was just one of many that the woman collects. She was lovely enough to let me snap a few pictures of, Suze, approving the new gothic lolita table at Omoi. Lots of goods in store, be sure to stop by before the holidays!

Banksy's Pet Shop?

Alexander Wang Wins CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund

Last night Alexander Wang took the coveted prize of 200,00 to grow his business and a year of mentoring. I've said it before and I'll say it again, this kid is confident. For his Spring 08 show, instead of tireless straining over the details of the collection he chartered a bus complete with a stripper pole and partied the night away, because his collection was done a month early. His collections are smart, energetic, and youthful. He approach to stylizing streetwear is aimed at the, well, Meenal Mistry says it best, 'the kind of go-getter who likes to cap off an all-night party with a pickup game at the West 4th Street courts.' Word, mama. That's what I'm talking about. Let's take a look at some choice cuts from Wang's Spring 2009 collection. Followed by a video of the night's events which were hosted by none other than John Galliano and muse Charlize Theron.

John Galliano's closing statement made my day. Check this out.

An optimistic composition in a bleak period. Into it.
