oh kelis.

i used to have a bit of a crush on miss kelis but there were times when she'd look a damn mess. now, sure, everyone has an off day .. but celebrity crushes aren't realistic, so my expectations of damn near perfection from my celebrity crushes don't have to be realistic either. i saw these photos on socialite life (Bella and Bri got me semi-hooked on these damn sites) and they were the perfect example of how bad kelis can look at times.






but, Bella sent me these photos (which were posted on pop bytes) from her flaunt magazine shoot and LAWD does she look good in these. kelis, i heart you sometimes. but just sometimes.










this post wasn't about anything. just about being shallow and objectifying women.

First Listen.04.11.2007

Today I will listen these albums for the 1st time ..

Charlotte Gainsbourg - 5.55

She was on the cover of The Fader, which isn't a good sign for me, cause I rarely get around to listening to stuff that makes the cover of The Fader. BUT she is the daughter of Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin, who I love, so I guess I could give it a shot.


El P - I'll Sleep When You're Dead

I've liked VERY little that has come out of the Def Jux camp (I HATED The Cold Vein, but I do like some RJD2 and I DO love Deep Space 9mm ) but with all the ranting and raving that this album has been getting I figured I'd give it a shot.


LCD Soundsystem - LCD Soundsystem (LATE PASS!)
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I first heard of LCD Soundsystem because of the 'Too Much Love' sample that Trackademicks and Mike Baker rocked on their 'Too Much'. I finally caved today after hearing about this album for almost 2 years. LCD Soundsystem's follow up 'Sound Of Silver' was released about a month ago so I guess I'll be getting to that one at some point in 2009.


Nine Inch Nails - Year Zero

I have a few reason for listening to this album. First, it's Nine Inch Nails, and Trent Reznor is a beast. Second, Bill cosigned it. And last, but not least, it's Nine Inch Nails.


TV On The Radio - Return To Cookie Mountain (LATE PASS!)
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I remember picking up 'Young Liars' back in the winter of 2004 and really enjoying it. Then I remember picking up 'Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes' in the summer of 2004 and realizing that these dudes were pretty fuckin' dope. Two years later they release 'Return To Cookie Mountain' to critical aclaim, so I have finally given in to the hype.


Mark Ronson - Version
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Back in October, during CMJ, Mark played 'Stop Me' and 'Toxic' for Trackademicks, Tap, Mike Baker and me. I can't front, I loved 'Toxic' but I can barely remember 'Stop Me'. BUT, after listening to the Amy Winehouse it sparked an interest in Ronson's production. So I'll be giving this a whirl today.


Knowing me, I'll prolly have some bullshit to say about most of these albums ..
Maybe I'll talk about 'em tomorrow.


Maybe.

James Casebere and Lorna Simpson



I first read about art couple James Casebere and Lorna Simpson in the New York Times back in September. and after seeing their gorgeous new studio in Fort Greene, designed by David Adjaye, i did a bit of research. I wasn't bloggin' much back then so I didn't share but last weekend they were featured in T: Style Magazine and it reminded me that I hadn't shared yet. So, below are photos to their Fort Greene studio and some links with some work and biographies.








On: Lorna Simpson.
Work: Lorna Simpson.

Also, Lorna has an exhibit at the Whitney which runs thru may 6th.
