PhotoJournalism vs. Harrassment

Some things I just dont understand. I stumpled upon this video of some celebs being harrassed while going into a club in L.A. I admit, we have created alot of this atrocity by wanting to see celebrities, thriving off of fashion and all that other bllshit. But come one, is there any solitude in the life of a celeb? After seeing this clip, I was really disgusted and feel things need to be changed. That verbal harrassment is not professional, matter the fact the shit is wack. What has happened to photojournalistic honor?

Classic....1-9-9-9




Common and Sadat X

The Eastern conference is overrated...


We are entering the final stretch of the NBA season. Less than a month to go before playoffs gets underway. My beloved Clippers were injury prone all season and have no hopes of making the playoffs, they better start throwing some games in hope of a high lottery pick.

While going over conference standings (yeah...I do that), I noticed the bottom two seeds in the East (Chicago and Detroit) are under .500 and the rest of the seeds up to the current #4 slot (Atlanta) are barely at the .500 mark. Are you serious?! Of course the three dominant squads Cleveland, Boston and Orlando are way ahead of the pack. Over in the Western conference the current 8th seed (Dallas) has a record of 42-28 and is at the .600 mark. In the Eastern conference they would be a strong 4th seed.

Say what you want but the East isn't any competition to the West. Yeah Boston won last year but it wasn't because they beat the Lakers, the Lakers beat themselves.

THIS IS WHY I LOVE HIP HOP!

It's a reflection of culture, your neighborhood.

It dictates fashion.

It inspires.

It enlightens.

It tells a story.

2009 NCAA Bracket Recap....



Man...my bracket sucks ass right now. That's what I get for trying to stay loyal to Cali teams, they all just let me down! There are so many red marks on my bracket sheet I feel like I'm looking at my old algebra II homework (i hated algebra II...how I passed with a passing grade is still beyond me). Surprisingly I'm in 2nd place in one of my groups. Hey...a good 27 folks are doing worse than I am. Hopefully this weekend doesn't run me under the bus.

Happy Tourney Party People!

It's spring again...Flowers ....Pollen...and all that good stuff!

Watercolor Floral Dress $28.99



Rose Strapless Dress $32.99

I am totally lovin the floral mini dresses from Charlotte Russe, sooo springy and retro. Throw on some funky pumps (for me polka dot or a bold color) and for those cool evenings a funky colored motorcyle jacket.... yep yep!

And these dresses are super budget friendly... less than $35
