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

Fall, my favorite season
Fall is the season when art is born
Fall is the season when music is visual
Fall is the season when loneliness is realized
Fall is the saddest season
Fall is my favorite season
