DID YOU KNOW?
Guy Fawkes, one of the coolest guys in history, was born on the same day I was?
Guy is famous for being involved in the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. He was probably placed in charge of executing the plot because of his military and explosives experience. The plot itself was to kill King James I by blowing up the House Of Lords during the opening of Parliament...which didn't end well for him. In the end, after being caught and tortured, he was to be hanged, then drawn and quartered. He wasn't too keen on that idea so he jumped from the scaffold and broke his neck, essentially dying by his own hand.
So, in the land of rain and tea, there is a yearly celebration on November 5th in honor, or as a warning depending on who you ask, with Guy Fawkes masks and effigies.
If you've seen V For Vendetta, i'm sure you've seen the masks before, they look a bit like this:
There's Your History Lesson For Today.
I'm a girls girl, I dig makeup, Dresses, shit like that. It's my thing, I do what I wanna do.* As such I dig womanly women...not to say that the girls who embrace androgyny aren't just as much a woman as I am....just a different kind of woman.
This is the kind of girl I'd like to be:
Not with the white skin, because chocolate is golden, but look at how "womanly" that bitch is!!! Also, her body is carved the fuck up, she's fierce. I want to be curvy like her, I mean, her waist was 18' and that's a little extreme, but a body that's sha[ed like that would be ideal.
I've always drawn inspiration from pictures of women from the 50's and 60's, especially as young woman who's not interested in being a stick figure, and also because in those days bitches seemed to always be beat..and i'm a beat chick.
* I listen to the Isley Brothers, perhaps too much.

Christmas Time Is Here:
It's that time again, and i've been pondering what I want for Christmas. Since I got what I wanted last year there won't be any carryovers, and this one is a lot shorter than last years!
I've always clowned on American Apparel, but hell, why not get into some clean fits and unprinted stuff? This labels stuff is pretty well made, has that minimalist look I dig, and is relatively cheap... I think I may be getting into this.
My mom keeps saying I need to go to the doctor, and last week she made an appointment which is ultra lame, so now I have to pick out some new glasses. I'm thinking that I may just use the frames from a pair of my vintage glasses and get new lenses but if I don't, I want some like this.
That wasn't so hard was it?

I've never been too much into Halloween until the past couple of years, but I'd have to say this year was one of the best. The parties started at Lee Harvey's where you celebs like Amy Winehouse, the chick from The Grudge, DOC and more were present. Hal Samples and crew were on site snapping away, and I think the entire Buffalo Exchange staff was there too.
SNOW WHITE AND SPEED RACER
SCARY CHICK FROM THE GRUDGE (YES, I TRULY WAS WHITE FOR A DAY)
ANA NICOLE SMITH AND DOUBLE DARE CONTESTANT FROM "THE BLUE TEAM"
BACK TO THE FUTURE'S DOC, TYRONE BIGGIMS AND BOY SCOUT, AKA: PPT
Then on Halloween night at O Bar, 26Ark turned the place into an 80's baby retreat with some major blasts from the past with special guest MC Picnic (looking like Kool Moe Dee).
Check out all photos here.

So I'm winding it down, just burned some trees, and I'm about to lay it down in front of the tv. But as I boiled my pack of oriental flavored Ramen Noddles, I had a thought. I want to watch some Youtube, but I'm too lazy to type and search and scroll for shit. Then I thought, wouldn't it be dope to have Youtube on Ondemand. Having access to any documentary, music video, or whatever by pressing the remote would be cool as hell. That sounds spoiled and lazy, but we all know we would all get addicted.
On another note, the fashion show was spectacular! My scene went better than expected and Eva Pigford REALLY has no ass.
I'll post up some behind the scenes pics and possible footage of show.

Poetry and Pose Fashion Show
So I've had the chance to style a scene in my first fashion show and I'm super excited. There are mostly men in the scene (b/c I love to dress a man), but there will be some b girl steeze in it as well, plus a lil surprise. It's in the West End, and for those who haven't been to the West End since 96, they've redone the old Planet Hollywood into an urban art oasis. Local artists have painted up the walls with portraits and modern amusement for you!
