OBAMA IS THE MAN.

FINALLY..... OBAMA ACCEPTED THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND DID WITH STYLE & HUMILITY.  I'M EXCITED TO SEE WHAT OBAMA WILL DO FOR THE COUNTRY (i'm crossing my fingers and hoping that he will construct the NEW DEAL for the 21st century) SO HE'S DEFINITELY GOT MY VOTE (duh). PEEP OBAMA'S SPEECH BELOW AND CONGRATS TO THE SENATOR!




EXTRA OBAMA SWIRL:

MORE BROWN FIERY SNEAKERS?? I SEE A FALL TREND!!



THESE NIKE AIR MAX 90 CLASSIC BW DARK CINDER/SOFT PEARL JOINTS ARE THE ABSOLUTE AUTUMN SNEAKER MUST-HAVE. ALONG WITH THE WOMENS' HI BLAZERS AND THE JORDAN 3 FUSIONS THAT I RECENTLY POSTED, THESE ARE ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF A WELL DONE BROWN SNEAKER, NO? I LOVE THE RICH BROWN HUES USED IN THE SHOE, BOTH LIGHT & DARK.  BROWN IS DEFINITELY THE POPPIN' COLOR OF THE BURGEONING SEASON (if you don't know, now you know), AND IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME ASK
BILL CUNNINGHAM, THE MASTER NEW YORK TIMES STREET FASHION PHOTOGRAPHER WILL TELL YOU HIMSELF.

IF I KNEW HOW TO DO THIS, LIFE WOULD BE EASY...

THE KING OF ALL TRICK SHOTS.

AAAAAND WE'RE BACK WITH NEW BRANDY!


RIGHT ON THE HEELS OF THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT BRANDY I BACK IN THE STUDIO WITH HER FORMULA POWER PRODUCER DARKCHILD, A NEW SONG IS RELEASED CALLED "RIGHT HERE."  I FLUCKS WITH IT (of course, yay brandy!) DOWNLOAD IT HERE TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK :)

I LOVE G4 AND I LOVE OLIVIA MUNN. don't judge.


EVEN THOUGH I DON'T PLAY VIDEO GAMES HELLA MUCH (my significant other, however, has an xbox which he plays almost everyday), I WATCH G4 ALL THE TIME. THE PROGRMMING IS ENTERTAINING AND INFORMATIVE SO THAT DEFINITELY KEEPS ME TUNING IN. MY FAVORITE SHOW (besides "code monkeys") IS ATTACK OF THE SHOW, STARRING KEVIN PEREIRA AND OLIVIA MUNN. THE TWO WORK WELL TOGETHER AND I ALWAYS ENJOY THEIR CHEMISTRY. OLIVIA MUNN'S POPULARITY HAS SKY ROCKETED SINCE SHE JOINED THE SHOW, AND WAS RECENTLY INTERVIEWED IN COMPLEX MAG;
Olivia Munn, the sexy cohost of Attack of the Show! on G4, wasn’t always an object of men’s lust. “I was comfortable being a really awkward, weird, dirty kid,” says the Chinese-German-Irish beauty of her early years in Tokyo, where her military stepfather was stationed. Luckily, an affinity for theater (as well as going through puberty) helped Munn make friends and land modeling jobs in Japan. By high school graduation, she was homecoming princess and class president...Inexplicably, longtime G4 viewers were initially upset. One criticism from an Internet forum read, “She’s too hot! They’re just trying to sex it up!”

Apparently, G4 fans are coping with the host’s hotness. Ratings swell when Munn exposes herself in Attack’s “In Your Pants” sex segment. “Anything you ask me, I’ll answer,” she says. Though she stonewalled an anal inquiry on her MySpace page, she opened up to Complex. “I personally don’t like anal,” she says. “Do I think there’s anything wrong with it? No. You need to use lubricant, is what I hear. I think it’s pretty painful without.”
- Complex Mag Online

OH ANAL IS A TRICKY SUBJECT, I DON'T BLAME HER FOR EVADING THE QUESTION A FIRST TIME, LOL. PEEP SOME PHOTOS FROM HER COMPLEX SHOOT BELOW (she portrays popular females in comedic film history).
THE MAN-MADE CHICK FROM WEIRD SCIENCE:

JOHN STEWART RECAPS THE OLYMPICS

THIS MAN/SHOW IS HILAAAARIOUS.

YET ANOTHER LYRICAL LUMINARY...


3-TIME HBO DEF POET, AND BRAVE NEW VOICES NATIONAL POETRY SLAM CHAMPION, MY BOY RAFAEL CASAL DEFINITELY HAS THE SKILLS TO PAY THE BILLS (that's what the kids are saying these days, right?).


Hip-hop artist, rapper, spoken word artist, slam champion poet, and founding member of the Getback Crew, Rafael "A.D." Casal is one of those artists that command attention almost immediately. In an era where ring tone music, lyrical deficiency, and dirty words dominantly pollute the airwaves, he offers a clean break by offering a new voice crisp and rich with swagger, style, and craft. Rafael's lyrical ability maintains a perfect balance between literary integrity and indisputable wit, offering a beguiling new force in both the spoken word and hip-hop worlds.
I COULDN'T HAVE SAID IT BETTER. RAFAEL IS NOT ONLY A PERFORMER, AS HIS SKILLS HAVE LED HIM TO WRITE PLAYS WITH OTHER THEATRICAL BIGWIGS. HE PERFORMS LIVE WITH HIS COHORTS THE GETBACK CREW, AND ONCE I GO BACK HOME (bay area, ca) I'M DEFINITELY CATCHING A SHOW.  HE'S A COOL GUY AND WASN'T A BAD JUNIOR PROM DATE (lol). CHECK OUT SOME MUSIC AND VIDEOS FROM MR.CASAL BELOW.  


IF YOU'RE FEELING HIM NOW, (and you know you are)...CHECK OUT ONE HIS STELLAR PERFORMANCES ON HBO. BRACE YOURSELF....


HEY I'VE SEEN GIRLS FALL IN LOVE WITH THIS GUY OFF THE STRENGTH OF ONE OF HIS PERFORMANCES! (lol, i'm uhhh, not kidding.)

CHANEL IMAN IS PRETTY FIERY CHICK...


THIS BLACK/KOREAN BEAUTY WAS FEATURED ON THE COVER OF KOREAN VOGUE FOR AUGUST.  I DON'T KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT THE EXTREMELY LITERAL "BLACK BEAUTIES" PLASTERED ON THE COVER.....ACTUALLY I DO KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT IT; I DISAGREE. PLUS ALL THE BLACK MODELS IN THE ISSUE ARE JUST SOME RECYCLED BATCHES FROM ITALY'S ALL BLACK ISSUE. BITERS.
