Dimepiece F/W '09



I dig it a lot but...there's something very K-Mart about it, not sure exactly what it is. Maybe if the gray cotton wasn't as thick or was a different shade of gray. Maybe it's the model and her corny accessories that's bugging me. I dunno. Maybe I'm letting my own personal opinions about the consistently awesome designer Laura from Dimepiece collaborating with Cassie, who is undoubtedly gorgeous but not so much since she shaved half her head. Not a good look on her. No m'am. This is a trick many will try and only few will pull off. Grow it back Cassie child!

Flawless. I might have peed myself just a little when I saw this. Classic New York city in all her glory, in crisp black and white photography, wickedly styled by Jane How, who I will be stalking from now on.

* Ragen is Fykes having a BIRTHDAY!!! *

It would be significantly easier to wish you a happy birthday if you were on Facebook

What's that Rae Rae? Oh, I see. You're already on Facebook? Hmm, well what about Twitter? That too, I see, I see. And Myspace, Freshselects, Rolling Stone, iTunes, Tumblr, YouStream, Amazon, Blogspot and OkayPlayer? Ooof, wow, well...I guess I'll just re-post this on your recently re-activated Black Planet account page then.

Oh, and with the economy and all,

I'm going to regift something special for you

Make that something VERY special.

Happy birthday boobie. Here's to many, many more. Or at least like, one or two more.

I love you a lot.

PS: You didn't have to get my name permanently tatted on your right ass cheek when you were in the Bay. I was planning on taking you out Wednesday and getting you shit faced on passion fruit pepper cocktails regardless.

Kool G Rap & Nas | Fast Life


Fast Life - Kool G Rap;Nas

Old school forefather and newer school about-to-be-a-father. Groan. That was weak. This track however, is classic hip hop.

3 TLC for Rae | ♥





They're not 112 but daymn Rae, these light brights are all yours, MJ's nephews came out so pretty, didn't they?! They got that good hair and those green eyes and they even got Michael's nose post-surgery. How'd they DO that? I always wondered. But look at Janet's cute little button shape. Maybe it's just good family genes. I sweated this trio. I think I even saved up loot the year this album dropped and bought tickets to Z100's Summer Jam at the Rose Garden to see them. I can't believe I just admitted that. Sigh.

Anywho, I know I'll see you in the AM but I hope the light brights keep you and Trace Face company tonight. Love you.

So Damn Down *swoons*

Rap has never looked soooooooo good!

WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA AND I MISSED THE ROLLER COASTER STOMACH!! IS THAT WHAT SWINE FLU DOES TO YOUR TUMMY?!?!? WHATS REALLY GOING ON?!?!?

Let this be a PSA...if hell freezes over and I ever get married... DO NOT... DO NOT... DO NOT... I REPEAT DO NOT get me a male stripper!! I WILL vomit in my mouth a TRILLION TIMES!!! Maybe even on him too!!!!

A gift from Mighty Moves on his birthday!



+



= Mighty's Moves' New Mixtape

Happy Belated Mights! * tears up just a little * It seems like only yesterday you still figuring out how to air chair. And on YOUR birthday, you were kind enough to give US a mixtape present. Yee haw and thanks nugget.

I'll see you and Ri on Thursday for hours of Jefferson Dancer elite flexibility.

Here's Mighty's mixtape promo info from his facebook:

“I Love the Hypercolor Powerglove Mixtape...It’s so Bad...”

That's right! I've been working on this Mixtape for a while now. Inspired by some of the party jams I used to hear on the radio when I was a growing up in the later 80's and early 90's. This was back when I was rocking neon green L.A. Gear kicks, a Gotcha Jacket, and an oh-so-necessary Hypercolor t-shirt (cuz after all, it changes color when you touch it). This was the era of the Powerglove, Ninja Turtles, and Fruit Stripe Gum. Know Your History.
