New Video

Ya know, sometimes you just have to suck it up and give credit where credit is due. On that note, here is the latest music video off of Kanye West's undeniably well done album, 808's and Heartbreak. Video is tight, love the layering of the images and transistions, check it.

Classic Hollywood Glamour

Stunning, and therefore her own post.

Congrats on the win for Best Supporting Actress in, Vicky Cristina Barcelona. The film is fantastic. Cruz plays the fiery ex-wife to artist and lover, Juan Antonio, portrayed by Javier Bardem. Swoon.

Bullet Proof Weave

For Jen

This City is Sooo Philthy, the BBC had to Doc it.

Don't get it twisted, I'm not glorifying the violence of PA.
This city is off the hook, more so in the 90's from what oldheads say.
There are like 6 parts to this on youtube

The dusted, white Rican, No. Philly, hustler is my favorite. In part 5 you meet his pet cow that grazes in a vacant lot next to the china store.

Boy by Band of Outsiders Fall 09 RTW

Inspiration from Godard's french revolutionary students in, La Chinoise, resulted in designer, Scott Sternberg creating a collection in which he described as, "fetishized American sportswear." Fantastic. I am really into the different shapes of trousers paired with the lace up booties.

Heart to Heart Charity Fashion Event

For years, the Children' s Hospital of Philadelphia has been saving the lives of ailing, vulnerable children in need of specialized care. The Cardiac Center at CHOP is a world leader in reconstructive heart surgery, heart catheterization, specialized anesthesia and nursing for children and young adults with heart disease. Performing more specialized interventions- both surgical and noninvasive - than nearly any other hospital in the world and serving more than 24, 000 outpatient s each year, their success rate is among the best in the U.S. The significance of this cannot be under estimated, as children are not only an important segment of our population but also are, quite literally, our future. In light of this and the fact that CHOP needs help from outside funding, Topstitch Boutique and Fuel Gallery will host a truly unique citywide charity event in hopes to raise money for the cardiac care unit of the Children' s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Design your own fabric, without going broke...

Magic Coming To a Town Near You

Alison Mosshart with fangs and blood all over the microphone only the heightens the drama of the drippy makeup and flashes of leopard print which make this soft focus video a visual daydream. The glimpses of Jamie Hince reminds you that this duo really enhances one another musically and couldn't be one without the other, or at least we would hope not. Enjoy.
The Kills just announced a US spring tour which includes dates in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston, of course. Get tickets soon, these are sure to sell out. Hey, maybe you'll see Kate Moss/ Hince's main squeeze? Apparently she was at Johnny Brenda's when The Kills came through Philly the last time.

My unborn son is totally getting one of these

I love my pits, maybe I can get a two headed rocking pit...
"Artist Tim Racer graduated from the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit in 1984, and quickly earned accolades as a successful young illustrator in Chicago. Tim was well known for his keen color sense, fine craftsmanship and his fluid, stylized paintings."
He is also the co-founder of "bad rap", a pit rescue organization (I adopted my baby Moses through them).
