Super Blues

Well..... I hate to say it but it happened. There I am in black and blue, which is not the issue. However, the combination of my attire and that of the kids flanking both of my sides (and the butt cheek of one because our stairs are not sock approved) is what scares me. ALL BLACK AND BLUE !!! My pap always told me that his favorite color was black and blue which was always funny to me. But this little mishaps of colors as shown above should not happen this often in my house.


Actually I prefer men, but either way. I am on the look out for the finely dressed men that know that it is their job too to look good. REMINDER: you don't need your Sunday's best on to look fresh, sometimes all you need is a new white tee and sometimes you just need something made by me, such as the hoodie on the fellow below.

Promlem Solving 101

The following pictures are results from a class that I took during my junior year. It was a class titled Problem Solving. I first remember hearing the name of this class and thinking ohhhh greatttttt another math class!!! Little did I know (stupid freshman) that this class would become one of my favorite for many reasons. One of the greatest facets to this class was my professor, who I am sure is totally in his glory with the return of the day glo colors, not that it ever faded in his mind. This man is one of the most interesting people I have ever met. He has the best stories to tell and is not afraid to tell them. He also plays the greatest games with magazine spreads and really I could just ramble on and on about him....but I won't. Anyways, the gist of the class was you had to design a garment with supply limitations. Usually any type of fabric was excluded from the list from allowed materials and there was always a price restriction. Everything was made for under ten bucks, and I honestly followed all the guidelines.

work hard play hard

Work hard, play hard....this is something I firmly belive in. I have been working semi-a-lot lately but a part of me would love to be able to work even more. However, I had off one day last I played. Take a look at where that got me. Enjoy.

For all of you who don't know.......MUSIC is what makes the world go round'. There is never a day that goes by in my life that I don't listen to music, hum, whistle......(like a champ) sing, dance to, whatever it maybe. In fact I usually do all of the above to just one song. I fall in love with music...different music, all the time. Currently I am in love with an extraodinary man (R>I>P) J Dilla. I found him after I went to a great concert this great in fact......that I can't even tell you about will just have to trust me. But anyways, at this concert I heard the name Dilla.....then my main music man Scott (who has his own song which is worth his own blog post) gave me a little background. I will let you get your own info on Dilla....I don't know how much time you have!!!.....just give the man a little respect and DO NOT wikipedia him!!!
So yes...I am in love and if you know what is good for you...other than just checking out this blog.... YOU WILL check out some J Dilla. I have an unreal amount of Pandora stations and I can tell you that J Dilla's has been the best one yet. I even named this new sweet air plant that I got Dilla, just to show my devotion.
