Vogue Italia


Photobucket


so i FINALLY got my hands in this long awaited issue. i've scoured all over Penn Station in NYC and Union County in NJ to find this. but on saturday my mission was accomplished. i came across Magazine Cafe in NYC when i did a search for the mag on Google. i gave them a call and they reserved not one, but two copies for pre-order. they gave me a call on friday letting me know it was there and it made my day. i even requested a Naomi cover and they had it put aside. this mag is history and as a magazine whore i just had to have it. now i know you're wondering why i bought two copies....eBay baby! *sings "imma hustler//imma imma hustler homie..."

best leading ladies in music

Pharrell isn't "Anti" babies


The Neptunes producer has a baby on the way with a “model type” woman who he met in Miami earlier this year. The New York Post reports that the unidentified woman “is very pregnant and travels with him. She hangs out with the backstage crew when he performs.” Supposedly the singer is very hush-hush about the pregnancy. But it’s too late for secrets now, the N.E.R.D. singer’s unborn fetus is already fodder for the New York Post’s ‘Page Six’ and the B.A.B.Y. hasn’t even finished incubating yet.

SummerStage in Central Park


Photobucket


so sunday i met up with Jewels, her sister Jessica, and friend Kamila for a hot and sweaty free concert with A-trak, Kid Cudi (yum), Diplo, and the lady of the house ms. Santi White-->Santogold. i have to say if it weren't for the heat wave, girls passing out, and people in wheelchairs moving me out of the way it was an overall good time. ahem well.... a group by a name i can't remember started out to "warm up" the already hot crowd. it was cool but i just wanted to get straight to the action. Blaqstarr spun for a bit then A-trak and my boy Cudi hit the stage and did a good job. he really shined on a song he did over M.I.A's "Paper Planes" and his online hit "Day and Night".


Photobucket




after KC, A-trak and Diplo took turns spinning for two hours straight. i'm not going to lie, that is a lot of time to just stand still and listen to music. i tried my best to stay in good spirits but the heat beaming on me made it hard. all in all, the guys did play some "oh shit" joints from Mobb Deep, Lil Wayne, and Dead Prez to name a few. Diplo also had a set of three girls who came out and had a sick choreography/voguing session.


Photobucket


then finally Santogold came out and performed.....like 5 songs. i can't front--i was souuuuped. but i wish she covered "I'm a Lady" yet she didn't disappoint with the bangers "Say A-ha" and "Creator". oh and her back up girls are oh so cute. if you gals need an understudy Jewels and i are available lol.


Photobucket


on a positive note i enjoyed some good music, hung out with some girls who had me laughing until it hurt, got a tan, a free Fool's Gold towel and tee, a free CD, vinyl album and restaurant certificate. but nothing, NOTHING comparesd to this...


Photobucket


...the whole time i was there i kept saying that i would love to get a chance to just approach him and say "hi". it was so nice of him to take a break from his convo and take a pic with me. this made it all worth it being that if you turned my iPod on at that moment he would be the artist you'd hear. *sigh*

now ask me would i do this again? the answer is "no". unless..... ;)

ps.
check out my flckr and YouTube for more pics and video soon!!

is that package for me? : Missbehave x NailsDid tee


Photobucket


as some of you know Missbehave magazine had a mxtape cd contest. if you created and mailed in a disc, they sent out a limited edition, not sold anywhere tee right to your home. well, mine arrived on saturday and i adore it. i wore it on sunday to the SummerStage show and it was great for the occasion being that i don't have any loose fitting cute t-shirts. thank you Missbehave and NailsDid!!

ps.

you guys totally killed my last name but watevvs... as long as the address was correct

*check back for the playlist that was sent to the ladies*

say it ain't so eBay



"eBay sees difficult times ahead"

Online auction site eBay has warned that sales will be lower than expected in the current quarter as it struggles against a weakening global economy.

Online auction site eBay has warned that sales will be lower than expected in the current quarter as it struggles against a weakening global economy.
The caution came as eBay posted a rise in net income of $460m (£230.2m) over the past three months to June, from $376m a year earlier.
But investors were disappointed by the firm's prudent outlook, with full-year projections kept unchanged.
The US firm is also battling against trust problems among its users.
Earlier this year, it overhauled its feedback system, banning sellers from leaving negative comments about buyers.
It is currently appealing against a ruling from a French court ordering it to pay 40m euros to luxury goods giant LVMH, which owns the Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior brands, for allowing online auctions of fake copies of its goods.
Attracting users to its shopping sites is also proving to be difficult.
eBay said the number of new active users rose by 1% during the quarter from a year earlier, even as listings increased by 19%.
"It's ancient history now, but in past years, investors knew eBay would start out each year conservatively and raise their outlook more and more as each quarter went by," Global Crown Capital analyst Martin Pyykkonen said.
"What eBay is saying now is, 'We don't want to go out on a limb,'" Mr Pyykkonen said. "The economy is working against them."

"NaS" album



out today.

Death Row records is sold for $24m



with classics like Dr. Dre's "the Chronic" and Snoop Dogg's "Doggystle", it was a major force on the west coast in the 90's. founded in 1989 by Suge Knight (Marion Knight is the name on the birth certificate) the label and its affiliates have come across a lot of drama even losing its veteran bad boy (pun intended) Tupac Shakur in a drive by shooting. the purchase of the label "includes current artist contracts and its complete back catalogue of music."

"10 Magazine Covers that Shook the World"






the LA Times concocted the 10 magazine covers that caused the most havoc. above are a few i found interesting. this includes the most recent New Yorker mag that shows a "satire" of the Obama couple. a lady on television said it best yesterday, "The only thing right about that [cover] is that [they] are in the White House."

Vogue x Hello Kitty



yesterday i was at Barnes and Noble looking for the Italian Vogue mag and came across the Japanese Vogue. i saw my precious Hello Kitty on the cover but couldn't understand any of what the mag was saying because it wasn't in english. the mag was sealed but i saw that it was grouped with about two other booklets. time was against me so i looked at the price ($20), put the Vogue down and kept it moving.

today i did a search for "hello kitty vogue magazine" and viola! i read that the mag was dedicated to the mouthless one and came with a specially made HK x Vogue charm. so you know what that means. i will be returning today to cop that magazine. you know the Japanese love HK (she's like the Mickey Mouse of Japan with a theme park and all) and this will be a great collectors piece.

i love pretty things life ruffles, gold, diamonds, and kittens. however--i'm a hardcore techie. this pen records audio and your notes can be uploaded to your computer in an instant. on the special notebook you can even touch a spot on your notes and it will play back from that point. OMG this pen is very necessary for my life. the 1GB runs for $149 and the 2GB goes for $199.

check out the actual demo of the pen by clicking here.

"wackness" movie trailer pt.2



this weekend was all about the blog-stresses; i met up with my classmate/friend Frances on sunday in Times Square so we could catch "The Wackness" movie. we linked up at the Hello Kitty Store (yes i get my Tokidoki pen, stationary, AND free Sanrio bag). the movie was really cool. the music used just brought you back to 1994. there's some NaS in there and a lot of Biggie Smalls. the plot line was simple, yet understandable. it covered relationships between parents, marriages, friends, and the ages. i must say the only con of the whole movie was Method Man's weak Jamaican accent. there was also a lot of weed action going on in the film. at one point i looked over to Frances and said, "This movie is so realistic, I can smell the weed. No wait... people are smoking in here." but i honestly did get so caught up i forgot i was in a theater. so if you can, check it out. it's very chill and you'll have "mad love" for it lol.

ps. someone ratted on the pot smokers and they were escorted out. "TIME TO GO!!!"

i want to see 'Wanted' pt.2



on saturday bubblegum pony*s creator Jewels and myself met up for some movie/mall action at Menlo Park in Edison, NJ. we saw "Wanted" and we were pretty mixed about it. i enjoyed the action and Fox's (Angelina Jolie) leather garb. although 85% of that stuff couldn't happen in real life--it's a movie. the movie did have some good visual effects (ie. the grocery store signs and the curved bullet in the end). but i absolutely HATED the scene with the rats. gross!!! and if you saw the movie then you wouldn't believe how horrified i was when i came home and saw a new jar of peanut butter in my kitchen lol.

"16 @ War" by Karina Pasian



if Alicia Keys was 16 years old, this would defintely be a song of hers. the first time i saw this video i remembered being that age and feeling as though there was no one to relate to. Pasian really did a good job touching issues that affect 99.9% of all teenagers everywhere whether it's sex, problems at home, or just wanting to fit it.
