Back in the day/when I was young I'm not a kid anymore...

...But some days, I sit and wish I were a kid again (c) Ahmad

So, I've wanted these shoes ever since I was in the 6th grade... My Mom was not having it! These and the North Carolina Blue and White 11's are the only two pair of shoes that I really regret not having in my childhood (I'm a spoiled brat, so SUE ME! :-p). So, I was truly excited about the retro... HOWEVER, I just really want the original! :(. Check out the difference below

Original...


Retro...


I don't like that the Retro's have replaced the Air Diamond Turf logo with a 2010...BUT, I saw THESE on ebay... So I might have to get the '05 retro for $65 bucks... You can't beat that I guess... Meanwhile, I'll just pray that Nike releases the originals :(

...For those that do want the retro Nike Air Diamond Turf's... they should be dropping sometime in June :)

I have nothing to do with counting the votes. (c) Kenneth Blackwell

Jon Stewart was really givin it to Mr. Blackwell yesterday... Check it out below :)

I wish I knew how to quit you (c) Brokeback Mountain

Just when I thought that I had gotten over my school girl crush on Lupe he comes out with another video and pulls me back in again! I'm on to you Mr. Fiasco! ;-) Enjoy the video for his latest single I'm Beamin below...

Do Better Wednesdays!

Tecora Brown

The 73 year old Ms. Brown was charged with first-degree racketeering and second-degree theft by extortion on April 21st in Superior Court. Yeah, you read right... Ms. Brown was "pimping"... LITERALLY. But get this, she was ratted out by her own son... smh. This truly is a sad story... The son allegedly found seemingly desperate girls from the internet by promising them that having sex for money would be very lucrative for them, and then forced them into prostitution...The prostitution ring also included a niece and a nephew of Tecora Brown... tisk, tisk. :(

Blazing Saddles (c) Mel Brooks

So I saw these saddles on my way to work walking to the Blue Line (the Damen stop), and I couldn't help but snap a pic... Aren't they just beautiful?



I liked these yellow brogue's as well... But I hear the paint chips pretty bad on them so that's a bummer :(


If you want either then make your way to City Soles/Niche... *Warning* the footwear there is NOT cheap, but they do have a layaway plan for you ballers on a budget... lol


My saddles :)

Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. (c) Berthold Auerbach


For those that aren't familiar with this event... The B.O.M.B (Bring Our Music Back) Fest is kind of a big deal... Frank Bombaci’s (the creator of B.O.M.B.) dream was to create an event where music lovers of all types could come together and appreciate the raw and original bits of music that are slowly seeping away from the mainstream music industry. The concert will showcase a variety of music genres, including Folk, Classical, Rock, and Country, and include the likes of bands such as Lupe Fiasco, Brand New, Jay Electronica, Ra Ra Riot, The Cool Kids, and Roots of Creation.


Bombaci is hosting the event on May 30th, from 12 p.m. to 10pm, at Durham Fairgrounds in Durham, Connecticut. Tickets are $25 and all proceeds will benefit two nationally known nonprofits, including SoundMusic CT, an organization dedicated to bringing summer music back to Harkness Park, and Make-a-Wish Foundation. I wish I could be there sooooooo bad! :(

Kiely Williams

Kiely Williams (Cheetah Girls) - Spectacular
Uploaded by seelteck. - Watch more music videos, in HD!



This week's DBW is brought to you courtesy of the former Cheetah Girl Kiely Williams... Apparently blacking out, having sex, and not knowing whether or not you used a condom is what's hot in these streets.. and also very "empowering to women" (her quote)... Woe is me!

Lust is easy. Love is hard. Like is most important. (c) Carl Reiner


Tough Love Couples debuted this week... I am a fan of Steve and his Mom.... even though I'm slightly jealous that he gets paid to give advice that I give for free on the regular... I can appreciate his technique... Though I probably won't be catching most of the episodes that I DVR because law school and work consume me...I will do my best! :)

Sex and the City 2 trailer...


I think I'm the only SATC fan that is NOT thrilled about this movie coming out... *sigh* just let SATC be great! It just needs to die... From this trailer the movie does not look promising... I'm gonna see it, but I think this go round, I'm going to be sadly disappointed. I will work on paying less attention to the plot... and more attention to the fashion! :)

DO BETTER WEDNESDAY!

Rihanna

I dunno who thought it was a good idea to perform a song with lyrics such as:

Come on rude boy, boy
Can you should get it up
Come here rude boy, boy
Is you big enough
Take it, take it
Baby, baby
Take it, take it
Love me, love me

...at an event that is primarily viewed by teenagers... Edited or not... It was just a BLD (bad life decision.) Okay Rihanna you stated that you want to be a role model for young girls, those words came out of your mouth... Do you honestly think performing this song was responsible? If you do... tisk, tisk.
