+ There's a fashion to the words.

+ There's a seduction in the sound of Jay West, but what makes it provocative is all within the details.

+ The Jay West Perspective is romantic. The Jay West Aesthetic is tailored. The Jay West agenda is to INSPIRE. “Southern California’s Newest Buzzworthy Artist” is preparing a follow-up to the cult classic mixtape, “Drugs+Candy”. The table is set.

My Girls Rock Balenciaga...

I suppose I'm a little late.
I saw the movie transformers when it was released to DVD and was at home gawking thinking it was one of the hottest action movies I'd ever seen. Now I'm waiting on VOLTRON. I'm still playing catch up in some other areas of life. One being the female footwear realm.

The Optimus prime of heel was released in the Fall of 07 but damn if I see a chick pull these out this summer, what I'm gone say..."You're late"? The audacity.

see for yourself >>> Balenciaga ... more than meets the eye

Takashi Murakami says Hello Brooklyn

take a trip to the Brooklyn Museum to get cultured like milk.
If you don't remember, Murakami is the artist responsible Kanye West's GRADUATION Cover Art.

brief description

The most comprehensive retrospective to date of the work of internationally
acclaimed Japanese artist Takashi Murakami includes more than ninety works in
various media that span the artist’s entire career, installed in more than
18,500 square feet of gallery space....

...The exhibition © MURAKAMI explores the self-reflexive nature of
Murakami’s oeuvre by focusing on earlier work produced between 1992 and 2000 in
which the artist attempts to explore his own reality through an investigation of
branding and identity, as well as through self-portraiture created since 2000.
Two works examining these subjects were a part of a group show, My Reality:
Contemporary Art and the Culture of Japanese Animation, presented at the
Brooklyn Museum in 2001.

The Roots - Rising Down Cover

sorry Nahright...I had to bite.
here's the cover for the coming Roots LP.
the brother ?uestlove breaks it down for us proper...
"This drawing is entitled NEGRO RULE. and it pretty much sums up the feeling of
the Confederate Union towards the newly freed slaves and the idea that if
power they would reek havoc and chaos on the country."

Now, did someone just say Decision 08?
