Stylin’ — Amanda Blank

22 12 2008

Check out this article from Venus Zine on the always entertaining Amanda Blank.

“Style Idol: Amanda Blank”

I already liked the girl, but this article gave me one more reason to like her— she’s a white girl who wraps her hair!!!  Haha.



808s + Heartbreak Custom Nikes

22 12 2008

All of Kanye’s new stuff has been banned from my listening devices.  808s and heartbreak breaks my heart (and hurts my ears) to listen to, but I feel no hesitation posting about these custom AF1s inspired by the 808s + Heartbreak artwork and Kanye’s “geek chic” attire.

Sneaker customizers MACHE and emmanueLabor created the ultimate in sneaker art.  From the houndstooth plaid, to the Kaws artwork featured on the album, these Forces are fresh.  (Even note the heart on the tongue.)

Props to HighSnobiety.

Andy Samberg does it again!

7 12 2008

Jizz In My Pants…Yes, that’s correct.

Tonight on SNL (a show I haven’t really watched since high school), Andy Samberg’s newest “music video” aired. With each one he gets better and better.

This song “Jizz in My Pants” was all about…well, the title’s fairly transparent. It’s “Dick in a Box” but about two times better.

Hopefully a link and lyrics to come….haha.


UPDATE (12/15/2008): VIDEO!!

You know what’s even better than the fact that this song is just wrong (in all the right ways)?

Answer–The lasers, the DJ, the lame lyrics, the tight pants, the JLS cameo, the KUFIYA! It’s so fabulously hipster. And this is coming from the girl that hates that label…and has Santogold “Creator” as her ringtone.

The Blow + D4L

2 12 2008

Just an observation….

One of my new musical obsessions is a group called The Blow. Have a listen to their song “True Affection.”

Now, listen to D4L “Laffy Taffy”

I think you get it. 🙂

Little Jackie

24 11 2008

Little Jackie is singer/musician Imani Coppola and DJ/producer Adam Pallin. Their debut album The Stoop dropped in July 2008.

Now, I like this group simply because Imani Coppola is doing vocals and I loved her 1997 hit “Legend of a Cowgirl.” But for real, check out this video for the song “Black Barbie.” I just might love it more than their song “Crying for the Queen” (a rather harsh critique on Amy Winehouse and her dumbass antics).

“Black Barbie”

Just like the white one.

This is one of the most ridiculous commercials I’ve seen in a LONG time.  I wonder which demographic this commercial’s supposed to grab….

And just because—one of my all-time favorite commercials.  Aired in 2006 during the Super Bowl.

Junior M.I.A.

13 10 2008


At the Diesel Rock Circus show this past weekend, M.I.A. revealed a baby bump that’s obviously been in the making for a while. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Maya alluded to the little one:

I’m kind of putting on weight. That could be it. I haven’t made it to the counter yet to buy a test. But when I do, I’ll let you know.

All I have to say is…WTF? Ok and maybe a big CONGRATS! I sincerely believe the world needs more Maya Arulpragasams. Or whatever her name will be after the wedding.

Kudos to Filthy Rag
