I miss DJ AM..he was a great guy. As well being a big part of the sneaker culture and music industry. BUTTTTTTTTT, I got awesome news...
A Nike X DJ AM collabo! Not much info. is out, but the kicks look amazing and def. a must have for any avid collector.
Lauryn Hill has been, and is still one of my favorite artist. My favorite album of hers is, of course, "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill." I don't know how many times I've played this album, but I know it's at the top of the list of my most played albums on my itunes. I miss her music. I mostly miss how articulate she was as a female artist and the best part, was that she was respected. In 2007 she had a single call "Loose Myself" and I thought she was back, but no. Lauryn where are you? Your music is needed gurl!!!

Hip hop. "REAL" hip hop, subconscious, verbally gifted rhyme slayers, Kevin Mercer, Dave Jude Jolicoeur, Vincent Manson aka the peace master, make up the incredible group De La Soul. Long Island natvies brought classic hits like, "Me Myself and I" collabs with the Gorillaz in "Clint Eastwood". Here's my favorite...
Stakes is High
I could watch the 1st 19 seconds of this video over and over again. Maestro is too fucking cute I can't take it! If I ran into him here in NYC, I'd...I'd probably bitch up. lol. But this episode is a pretty great one. He gets up with famous photographer Jonathan Mannion; who has shot some of the greatest celebs in the music industry. He's captured some of hip hop's most legendary photos. In this episode they give a sneak peek of Lil' Wayne's album cover. Now go and enjoy Maestro's smile. I know I will.
Here's the official music video for Leighton Meester's 1st single. I showed her performing this last week, but the song actually features Robin Thicke. I fucking love it! I'm so excited for Leighton. And Robin Thicke looks so damn delicious. I love his style!

How fucking amazing are these Gucci platform mary-janes! They're from Spring 2009. I happened to find imitations of these beauties at TopShop, on sale for $30! With student discount, $27 dollars! I wish I could own these Guccis, they are perfect in every way. The wood is stunning, the bronze is beautiful, and the strap around the heel of the foot, spanking. But these reasonably priced shoes I got are a perfect substitute. Jump for a fuzzy phone pic of mine.
I came home (upstate) for the week to visit my fantastical family. I had lots of fun and lots of food :) Coming home really helps me get grounded and realize the reasons why I moved with Elle in Brooklyn. One thing I truly miss here is my kitty Pacman aka Pacman-man aka Pacmania aka Pacistan, he's the fucking greatest... if we ignore the fact he kills an average of 14 animals (mainly birds & rabbits) per week. But overall, it was a great relaxing week. I got my LONG OVERDUE haircut, solved my computer mystery, bonded with the ones I love, and most of all, had a GREAT thanksgiving. It was nice to get away from my day-job and the busy city, but now I'm ready to get it alllllll back. Hello Brooklyn!!

Don't care 6%
I had a feeling the poll would go this way. No one is ready for Winter. Especially since the New York weather has been playing so many games. One day it's freezing the next it's sunny and warm, like wtf. I really don't want to have to buy a winter coat. I don't want to have to wear long-johns under my jeans, or have to put a hat on. But I would like a white Christmas, and winter coming is inevitable. I have this really bad feeling it's going to be a rough Winter though. Hopefully it won't be a crazy long one. The trains are the worst during this season.
peep the new poll
Lil Duval has got to be one of the funniest people on twitter. I went to his page this week and I peeped his profile pic and no lie, I couldn't stop laughing. This looks like a lil boy looking up to his father, but this is no little boy. I love this man. Follow him on twitter to keep up with the laughs @lilduval.
I'm all about questioning everything. I have a tinkle of rebellious in me and I enjoy to learn on my own. It's the hard way though, because it leads you to make realizations that completely change your mindset and outlook on the world.
I think we all experience a time when we question everything that is taught for us to simply accept. Definitely keep questioning it and doing your own research to find your own truth.
It's that special time of the year again, kicking off the Holiday season, bringing family and friends together, to eat lots of delicious food, and give thanks for our blessings. Certainly, we should give thanks everyday. But it's great to have this special day for togetherness, and relaxation. Everyone have a wonderful holiday!
