JOB


SEDGEWICK - THE CIAO MANHATTAN TAPES

When my principles contradict and I feel like dying,

I think of something mother once told me,

"God is the loneliest creature in the universe."

It leaves me with nothing.
Despite it
I move on
Hoping someday, i will understand what it all means.

FASHION PHOTOGRAPHERS

-these are the top fashion photographers that i admire.
their pictures are all real and exhibit a passionate rawness; they don't use crazy props or a lot of digital manipulation unlike a handful of current fashion photographers in the industry (aka: annie leibovitz, jill greenberg, miles aldridge)

ANNABELLE



dispose of your history books
and forget about politics
the drugs are only as bad as you make them
and happiness is not a vision

so return it to whomever sold it to you

darling don't cry when you realize

tomorrow isn't what pappa always promised you

Annabelle shut your eyes

and put back the life in your years

get in your dancing shoes

go ahead...

dance the night away

KANYE WEST


West's new album, 808s and heartbreak, is much darker than his past albums. Influenced by many factors, notably his huge jump to fame off his Graduation album (topping 50's sales), the death of his mother, and breakup with ex-fiance and a major influence in West's style, Alexis Phifer, who West has been on and off with since 2002. Alternative album work(as shown above) is done by KAWS.

Little Jonathan of the Southwark Branch Library



Nutty Nutter has been threatening to close down public institutions for his once beloved citizens.
It is true we are in hard times, but closing down libraries is definitely not the key to pull our city out of this deficit; it just makes no sense. They can cut government salaries, stop racketeering, stop spending tax money on "business trips", borrow from the Fed; Instead they target the portion of Philadelphians who have no voting power. Its a shame we have guys like Fumo representing our city. Philadelphia shall overcome and be prosperous; hopefully the Feds will acknowledge Nutter's recent request fo dolla billz.

The Biggest Flaw in Fashion Today:

ex: cycle:cls's cardigan shirt(one piece w/ removable cuffs)
-people are placing trends over style in fashion
they forget to incorporate their own style into their outfits
and have companies do it for them which as you can see is highly marketable
-this, uniformity, completely goes against the notion of fashion

OBAMA AND ARTISTS

Obama is seen here shaking hands with one of my favorite photographers Terry Richardson


Obama or one of his people decided to use this image after Shepard Fairey, aka Obey (anartistidontlikesomuchbutnonethelessanartist), and his worldwide group of posses decided to start a campaign to put this picture up everywhere


in an a conversation with Obama, Fairey asked whether or not Obama understood that he was an illegal street artist, Obama acknowledged it and stated that he respected what he did because his art gave insight to the minds of daily americans

BANGIN BLOG: THE FIELD NEGRO



THE FIELD NEGRO



-so i have been hearing a lot of unlikely talk from a certain group of people who claim themselves as ..."republicans or conservatives or non-liberals or non-left-wing or non-socialists or non-obamaans" talking about moving to europe. yes europe is pretty sweet but why bring up such talk because of your dissatisfaction with the new president-elect, supposedly because of his left wing agenda

I dont get it...
-is it the social welfare part?
-their secular government?
-their humble foreign policy?
-their central bank?
-their support of gay marriage?
...but aren't all these things "non-american"
-maybe its because your racist

WHATS HAPPENED TO PHARRELL AND YEEZY?



After spending a few G's on his latest KAWS piece seen in the background, Pharrell also decides to step his hipsterdom up a level, because 35 is the new 17, by spending a few more G's on a pair of aerospoke "track wheels" on a brookyln works frame that doesn't fit. Rumor has it that Kanye already has a $20,000 cinelli and can do track stands and skids, Pharrell step yo game up.

Rumor also has it that for his new album, Kanye has been taking some of Pharrells advice and spitting out club beats with pro tools but at least the man dresses his age:

DESIREE

Had I put on paper the sappiest of thoughts I have for you,
It would cover every inch of the great state of California.
O Darling Desiree.
Your the first girl I've ever loved twice.
You call me pathetic.
I think I'm just crazy.

Our journey limited by concrete trees and flashing lights

Do you have the nerve to ask me
What's the center of your world
Please be waiting where I left you
This summer's set to set
I go east to west in this place
my feet upon your steps
screaming louder than a gunshot
I haven't finished with you yet
