Creatures of Comfort x S/S 2014 x NYFW

Creatures of Comfort x S/S 2014 x NYFW

The Creatures of Comfort SS14 NYFW presentation last Sunday afternoon was a daydream at a desolate rocky seaside. As soon as I walked in, my attention turned toward the hand-dyed fabrics that draped the walls of the Maritime Hotel‘s patio. The strategically stacked rocks, cutouts of jetties, cool breeze and...

Throwback Thursday: I Can’t Believe I Used to Dress Like That!

No, really, I can’t believe I used to dress like that. Haha. The rectangular glasses, the tee from Threadless, the colored rubber bracelet, dang. And I know for sure I was wearing my grey and white checkered vans — destroyed beyond recognition with my damn pinky toe hanging out. LOL....

The day was marked...

Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail: A Track by Track Album Review

In Light Of The Magna Carta Holy Grail Album Art, We Pick Our Favorite Rap Covers

Earlier this week, Jay-Z unveiled the album art for his upcoming Magna Carta Holy Grail and it looked pretty fucking bland for such a grandiose musician. That is, until he released the actual art today next to the real Magna Carta in Salisbury Cathedral (meta mind melt). Kanye, Jay’s de facto Bizarro...

Playlist: Comedowns and Rubdowns

I took some MDMA a few hours ago and now I’m having the inevitable come-down that I signed up for when I made the (correct) decision to mess around with some substances. It feels like I’m a robot, and typing is the only thing distracting me from that Dementor-friendly soul...

GOTTA SEE IT: “STONE” x DE NIRO x JOVOVICH x NORTON

Here’s the IMDB description: “A convicted arsonist looks to manipulate a parole officer into a plan to secure his parole by placing his beautiful wife in the lawman’s path.” This movie looks sooo good. I love flicks like this! It reminds me of when I was a kid and my mom, brother and i would...

TUNEZ: Rihanna + TV Girl + Yuck

First up, a new track from Rihanna featuring Drake. Lead song Only Girl, off the soon to be released album Loud, left me hunched over puking but What’s My Name makes me think there still may be hope for Rihanna’s new album. Yes, the lyrics are obnoxious. But isn’t that what we love about Rihanna?...
