A little routine we have I see
...don't make it a habit, I'll start to expect it.
..and like it.
Basquait first became known for his graffiti in the streets of Manhattan, New York. He later became known most famously for his drawings and paintings of urban black culture, his Haitan and Puerto Rican heritage, and his unorthodox perspective of society.
I really enjoy watching interviews from legardary artist and celebrities from the past, especially those who answer the questions with a honest attempt to really explain the purpose of their art and the madness in their minds. I wish I could go in my time machine back to the 80's and have a long discussion over coffee with this guy. He seems very opinionated and complex.
Basquait was a long time friend of and collaborator with the great Andy Warhol and had a relationship with early pre-stardom Madonna.
There's a movie about his life called Basquiat released in '96 that I have to see!

I'm definately in love with Rihanna from her image (she's beautiful and her style is impeccable) to her music. The re-release of Good Girl Gone Bad has confirmed her status as an artist to be taken seriously. Take A Bow was a #1 single and I won't be surprised if Distrubia does the same thing.
I am really diggin' this dark edgy Rihanna. Did you see her with the blonde short wig and white contacts, and the scene with the spiders? Whoa, scary! I love it
Thanks Brandon for the scope.

Be sure to check out the new Juicy Couture store in Georgetown, DC...its really nice, with alot of great men's stuff. Juicy designers Gela Nash-Taylo and Pamela Skaist-Levy have been uping the ante with men's wear lately. Me likey..
One thing I can not stand to see are baggy dress clothes. Call me old fashion but dress shirts and pants should be fitted and neat.

Collars should fit closely around the neck, almost choking, the sleeves should lay to the wrists without too much buckling, and the sides and back of the shirt should lay neatly and completely tucked in the pant without bubbling. Slacks should fit around the waist properly and shouldn't be baggy at the bottom. When you sit down we are supposed to see your socks, believe it or not. My old JROTC instructor once told me that there shouldn't be more than one dent in the crease at the bottom of the pant near the shoe.

To wear business attire clothing without looking sloppy, the fit is key. Get your measurements and don't be afraid of the tailor! When buying shirts and slacks ask the sales clerk to measure you, including collar and arms for the shirt and waist and inseam from the pant. When getting pants hemmed, remember to bring a pair of dress shoes. And to avoid the excess fabric on the sides and back, look for slim fitted shirts.
Trust me...these tips make a world of a difference.
