Rain Rain Go Away, That's What All My Haters Say

Went to check out a rad dj called J.Rocc a few weeks ago and I must say I was quite impressed.  I tend to be a super hater when it comes to music because I get bored.  Well, actually to be honest I get bored of everything, but music is a main love and I like when djs mix cool shit and J.Rocc mixed super tight hip hop, soul and disco-all favorites of mine.  I really did not know anything about his music and I went just for fun and after reading a bit about him online I found out that he is an original turntablist and that pretty much explains why he sounded so good!

I was so lucky that it wasn't raining ferociously that night because I did not want to get soaked.  It's also not cool to take an umbrella to a show because you have to carry it the whole night so I was pretty stoked that I did not have to babysit that shit. It's impossible to tell because the photos are in black and white, but I am wearing my rainbow snake skin boots and this super awesome cream lace dress that I found for $5 at Target.  

I was going through a bunch of photos and I came across these from a super fun/fancy birthday dinner party that I attended last month. The restaurant was on a hill and the view was spectacular.  

Love my new Doll House ankle boot platforms.

The food was alright.  I ordered the Capellini Diablo with giant scallops and I knew I should have picked the catfish because I wasn't sure if I was a fan of cream marinara sauces.  Lesson learned, definitely trust your gut, but that gives me another excuse to go back, dress up and pop a bottle of champagne.

Paris Fashion Week Looking Good!

It seems like for the past week every time I make an attempt to update my internet it's sucking balls, but oddly enough it works perfectly well today when it's raining cats and dogs.  I like to stalk and just a few days ago they put up pictures from Tommy Ton's adventures at fashion week and they are to die for!

I live in the wrong town yo!!!  The fur and the bright colors made me kinda crazy and I've been putting together better weather than this shit outfits in my head.  I'm ready!  On another note I've been listening to Twista a lot lately.  I love the dude because he raps hella fast and it actually sounds good!  I came up with this gem while going thru his discography...

I would have posted the actual video for your pleasure, but the code is disabled!!!

And seriously this is one of the best beats ever!!!!!  Thank you Kaney West...

Goodbye John Galliano

John Galliano is the biggest fuck up of the year and it's only March.  Seriously, just thinking about him makes me so sad because he is so talented and I was such a fan of his work.  This guy is an artist, he is so creative and his shows are always my favorite because not only does he have amazing clothing to show, but the models are styled to perfection and the whole thing is a full blown production with music, lights and effects.  John Galliano had one of the most prestigious jobs in the fashion world, he designed for Christian Dior.  Even people who don't follow fashion are familiar with the fashion house, Dior is a very powerful force and Galliano's career is over after they fired his ass for saying pretty fucked up anti-semitic things in public.  From what I know his rants were caught on video so this guy was pretty much done after they became public.

There are two ways at looking at this situation.  John Galliano is probably a Jew hater or he simply thinks it's funny to say offensive things, but doesn't really feel that way about that particular group of people.  Let's just say that he is a funny man who likes to fuck around with his buddies at bars and go too far with his jokes (the offensive rants happened at a bar).  I'm sure you've all experienced this, we all have buddies whose jokes are funny, but at the same time they make you cringe.  If you can't relate think of Ricky Gervais in The Office.

The problem with saying stuff like this in public is that someone might overhear the comments and won't know that the person's humor is like that.  That could either trigger something in the spectator that will make them think that it's okay for people to say stuff like that or it might offend the person.  The situation gets a lot more tricky when the person saying these comments is someone of power, in this case John Galliano who is a celebrity and because everyone has a cellphone with a video camera these days it is very simple to record someone saying or doing anything.  That is exactly what happened in this situation and now the whole world's perception of Galliano is that he is a racist fuck and it doesn't matter that he is a fashion genius.

A multi-million dollar company like Christian Dior obviously does not want to be connected with such image and Galliano was booted as head designer.  I wonder what Galliano is thinking right at this moment?  I bet he's probably sorry as fuck that he said something completely inappropriate that caused his career to plunder forever. If you are as powerful as Galliano how do you redeem yourself from something like this? How can you convince the masses that you are sorry and that you are an idiot for saying stuff like this in public?  Homie needs to visit the Museum of Tolerance and donate his estate to the Jewish History Museum in D.C.  You really fucked up Galliano and I don't feel sorry for you.  R.I.P. to your career.

Let's take a look at his work and what he will no longer have because he's a brainless man...

Recap: 83rd Annual Academy Awards Red Carpet

I missed the Academy Awards last weekend because I was invited to the Ryan Leslie show in the city.  I  had no idea who this person was, but I decided to be a good sport and check it out.  It was quite disappointing that this fool had the people wait like two hours for his lame ass to come out.  The dj who played while we waited did play the TLC song "No Scrubs," and that made me happy, but Ryan Leslie sucked and I did not enjoy any minute of it. Sometimes I feel like a hater, but I remember having so much fun at shows back in the day and music was a lot tighter.  I did scope out the Oscar's fashion though and I had quite a a lot of favorite looks, check em out...

There were so many lovely looks at the Oscars, but my two favorite were these...

Mila Kunis, Dress by Elie Saab Couture, Jewelry by Neil Lane 
Gwyneth Paltrow, Dress by Calvin Klein Collection, Jewelry Louis Vuitton  

There weren't too many dresses that were appalling, but I just did not care for these...

Keith Urban with Nicole Kidman, Dress by Dior Haute Couture, Shoes by Pierre Hardy
Cate Blanchett, Dress by Givenchy Haute Couture, Jewelry by Van Cleef & Arpels 

Cate's dress is quite beautiful and it would have been one of my top picks, but the top part was totally horrid.  It looks like some type of armor and out of place quite frankly.  Nicole's dress reminds me of origami and it looks pretty cool until you get to the bottom.  I wish i could chop it off so it wouldn't look so stiff! But these two ladies took the cake, it just doesn't look right...

Sharon Stone, in Dior. 
Tim Burton with Helena Bonham Carter, Dress by Colleen Atwood, Jewelry by Solange Azagury-Partridge 

Sharon stone has the prom hair going on and the heavy eye and lip makeup is just too much.  The dress has such a bold statement with the plumage I wish I could rub a genie's lamp and give her a nice, tight ponytail, cat eye liner and a bright red lip.  Clean, sleek and pow with the feathers, you feel me?  Helena's dress was not as appalling in her choice of fashion this time around, but her dress looked a bit cheap I thought...
