Dita x Gazal Stunnas

Here go a few new pairs from my personal favorite sunglass company, Dita. The ones above are a collaboration with the old school shades company Cazal. The aviators are dope, but my favorite are the ones on the bottom. They have a fresh, yet sleazy 1970's feel to them.

Willie Northpole feat. B.O.B. : Hood Dreamer

My nigga Taj directed this one...dope video. Check it out. Go Popular Kid Go.

Top 60 Ghetto Names

Even though both of these clowns need a ass-whoopin' for having the nerve to do this and not be Black...I think this is a sign that we need to be more conscious at the names we give our children. For example, I know 3 different people who named their children after liquor. 2 boys named Hennessey and Rossi, and a girl named Alize. No lie. We have a culture with many names that are rich in meaning, let's try to use them.

When In Rome: The Promise

Here's one of my favorite 80's songs. I been on my 80's shit lately looking for some refreshing creative inspiration. Take some time to listen...

Jimmy Choo Spring/Summer '09

I ran across these and figured the ladies who visit my blog might like to check out whats coming this spring from Jimmy Choo. Heels and a wife-beater in the summertime is always a good look.

Cassie's New Flavor

So what do you think? Fly style or pure wackness? (or maybe creative marketing...hmmm). I actually like it, but thats just me.

The Korean Mariah Carey

I posted this dude a while back. He was doing another Mariah Carey song. For some reason this is hella funny. The fact that I dont see too many gay Korean people makes it a bit funnier too...and what the fuck is up with his shirt? Nigga got a damn blouse with tassels on. LoL

"Nice to meet you, what do you do?"

Right now I'm in an editing studio in Santa Monica lending my creative input to the editing of Ne-Yo's new video "Part Of The List". Also in the room is the director (Taj), the video's producer (Andrew), director of photography (Alejandro), and the actual editor working the computer (Dean). Sitting here I'm realizing how many people are involved in the creative process of making and maintaining a star. For every person you see in the spotlight, there are countless people behind the scenes shaping the artists superstar image. When people say the music business is 90% business and 10% music, I think this is what they're talking about. We're literally creating the video from unstructured rolls of footage, and the only person in this room who makes music is me, and thats just by coincidence. Im actually down here as a screenwriter. Go figure.


Kid Cudi: Karmaloop TV

Damn, I feel what he was saying. That shit's been me so many times.
