Sooo... I was gettin' my Google on searching for a gift for my friend, and I came across these glamorous rubber gloves on the Carolyn's Kitchen website. Yes, they also carry the cutest retro aprons, but c'mon.....These gloves are ridiculous. Just down right genius. Not only do they make me actually want to clean like a crazed 1950's housewife, I feel they can add a much needed touch of sophistication when it's time to bitch-slap someone.
We all know about the Murakami Exhibit now showing at the Brooklyn Museum. However, I recently came across these pics of an apparent LV Street Market that is also part of the exhibit. This market is obviously supposed to be a replication of Canal Street. Hellloo?! So, are those real bags in the pics or are they fake? Why wasn't I asked to help out with this installation? Do you think they have secret back rooms with all the 'good' stuff? Why don't they have a dude in fake bling selling mixtapes? Why haven't they asked to have Cookie Cutter apparel as part of this? These are the questions I ponder. I must go see this immediately.
Yesterday I bought my first tube of anti-wrinkle cream. As much as I would like to think I'm better than this, I am apparently a victim of this cruel, superficial world in which we live. I feel guilty every time I apply the cream around my eyes, yet deep down, I really hope this shit works.
I have been a huge stalker - ugh, I mean fan - of DJ Neil Armstrong for a good 5 years or so. He is one of the original members of the 5th Platoon, a collective of DJ's from NYC to the Bay Area. Nonstop, Bittersweet, Sweeet, Original, 2orginal -- are just a few of his creative mix cds that have sent me to another level. I have been honored to meet him at Undrcrwn's photoshoots and parties. Besides being one of the most nicest, bling-free, soft-spoken guys I have ever met, he is just mad talented. And now, Jay-z, the Hova of all Hovas, has recognized such talent. Neil has been asked to be Jay-z's DJ for The Heart of the City Tour. He is currently rocking the stage with Jay-z and Mary J. Congrats to Neil!!! I guess the nice guys do win in the end.
