INSA = one man. One name. NO Face.


funny story:

I just so happen to be in the bookstore one day, and managed to pick up a Juxtapoz magazine, and saw this piece of work that i couldn't resist falling in love with. I have got to bring this one over to the south.

via: http://www.kicksncanvas.co.uk/insa.html

"INSA is a fine artist and designer who has established himself from a graffiti background through extensive street level work and gallery shows around the world. Throughout his career, INSA has allowed himself to explore different approaches and outlets for his artistic agenda, including designing signature collections for brands such as Kangol, Kid Robot and Oki-Ni, as well as starting his own heel company ‘INSA Heels’. He has undertaken many private commissions for clients such as Sony and Nike and was recently invited out to Sweden as one of only two British artists to help curate and sculpt the 2008/2009 ICE hotel.

INSA’s canvases and installations are often hyper real, finely crafted creations in which sexual desire and commodity-fetishism merge and contrast. Always with a heavy sense of irony, INSA visually exaggerates the notion of objectification meets commodification with graphically depicted oversized body parts that are suspended in the controlled architectural lines of a sneaker or bold black and white graphic patterns. INSA uses these powerful patterns to play with and distort the spaces where his work is installed to entice the viewer into the ‘fantasy’; a shallow fantasy of materialistic aspiration where sexual objectification is flaunted as a symbol of wealth and success."

Sunset Boulevard, where fame is found and destroyed.



A very exquisite piece from Billy Wilder called "Sunset Boulevard" starring the
oh so handsome William Holden and creepy "Norma Desmond" as Gloria Swanson. This film was shot in the 1950's and still remains revelant to the times now. I have the DVD, if anyone is interested in watching it with me. Thanks Mr. Martindale.

I am ready for my close up.

Just call her Jessie, she feels normal that way.

I absolutely love "running" into music on this world wide web.  It is a pleasureable surprise every time I find something that I wouldn't normally listen to, be something extraordinary.  I'd like to help introduce to you Singer/Songwriter/Very Full of Energy With a BEAUTIFUL VOICE, Jessica "Jessie" Cornish of the UK. Be taken aback by her soulful voice, and melodic mix of pinches of R&B and influences of Hip-Hop. I hope hearing her music sends insane vibratory sensations throughout your body as it did mine.

music to make love to



it's a love reality.

i know what boys like

nah i really don't.but if I did, I would hope my boy toy would appreciate something like this.via http://www.inventorymagazine.com/about.php

"INVENTORY was created as an extension of the culture and lifestyle we're a part of. We value products and clothing for more than just their appearance, admiring how they're made, by whom, and why. It's through this passion and attention to detail that we view the things in our lives from a different perspective. With a hunger and willingness to learn, we search for the rare, unknown and new, while always remembering tradition and the past. It is with this blend in mind that we explore various niches in menswear to create our own unique aesthetic. We focus on the brands and people, big or small, that have stories we want to tell and might otherwise go unnoticed. INVENTORY's unique content draws us out of our immediate surroundings and leads us into a world of exciting and interesting things."

Inventory magazine is the manly man style guide for the independent thinker. I really enjoy the looks, and the tips given to readers. You can learn about different brands, and how you can dress them up and down with what you have in your closet.

40th anniversary..Do you know what today is...?



via thenewyorktimes.com, "THIS year marks the 40th anniversary of the death of Jimi Hendrix, and, predictably, that event will be commemorated with the release of a new CD, the freshening up of his classic titles, a tribute tour and a version of the video game Rock Band devoted to him. He will be a hard figure to avoid, as viewers of the Super Bowl who heard his song “Fire” on a commercial promoting “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains” have already learned.

and up jumps.....THA BOOGIE

have u seen them?


these superheroes are known as "Tha boogie"
lejin, korus (the chick), and Nu school are young individuals who collectively form this trio that is about to take over your stereo.The Rancho Cucamongian gang contain admirable musical talents coupled with fly urban originality that fuels them to write, produce, record, and arrange songs that have no boundaries. They remain inspired by people who are not afraid to be or do anything different.
i personally dig their music because it's chill fun and spontaneous, i'm all for it.
here's one off of their latest EP "Love Tha Boogie Vol 1 Steal This Sh*t”, called
"I am Peter Parker"
3 cheers for tha BOOGIE.
hip hop HOORAY!


LONDON CALLING. Theophilus London "Humdrum Town" Feat Jesse Boykins III


i really like this video, the whole concept is very sweet and delicate.
The old school karaoke bar was a treat.
The song itself is very lovely, and happy to see cameos in there.
Jesse Boykins III, i remember him from a few Cottontail mixtapes a while back.
New York is really about to shut it down once again,
are YOU ready?
enjoy.
OH, and download THIS CHARMING MIXTAPE if you haven't heard of Theophilus or JESSE BOYKINS III.or just READ A BOOK.
