“It is interesting to see how much reaction this retro branding has created … Clearly, this period of the history of the house was not well-known, which I trust was a surprise for Pierre Bergé [Saint Laurent's long-term partner]. I went back to 1966 — just before the events of 1968 [when 11 million workers revolted against the conservative politics of then-President Charles de Gaulle — the biggest general strike in history], but the awakening of youth was in the air, and Yves Saint Laurent wanted to dissociate himself from the clientele of haute couture and embrace this new generation.”
Woody has worked with Grammy Award winning artists and has established himself as one of the top producers in the music industry. “When I first thought of this doing this Remixed project, I had no idea how it would turn out. I remixed “Lollipop” first and then finished the whole project in a week. Shouts to Rossco Soletrain for assisting me on this one, dude is a bass and guitar master”, says Woody about the project.

Frank Ocean, an R&B vocalist affiliated with the outlandish hip-hop crew Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, was selected GQ’s “Rookie Of The Year.” In this interview he talks about what he learned from KanYe & Jay-Z, Tyler’s Goblin making him happy, Adele’s 21 album, his Hobbies, his favorite color, his everyday life. Ocean on politics: “My generation just doesn’t have the best taste in leadership. And weak leadership means little to no cohesion. If there’s no cohesion, there’s no real chance for effective protest or politics. Obviously, looking at Occupy Wall Street, there are a few in our bunch who still give a damn enough to rally and shout. This will change once I’m elected President.”
I’ve been out to sea for a long time. Summer is over, this ain’t no beach house. Build time for wandering into any trip. I relate more to The Temptations’ “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone” more than fatherless households. Momma’s confused about my whereabouts and benefits. But my skin is clear, got my pearly whites; A meatless lifestyle running after that cake, cake, cake, cake, cake. What doesn’t compute? That summer on the beach looked like a fourtune but only on camera. Friends with beneficial boat rides will make a priceless picture in your city. A pain killer from one of those online boutiques is a BUY NOW click away for the not so electric days. Saving money will never make you rich. But I never meantion everything I dabble in — That’s a cheap way to put out. I stay in the coolest moods, spending time just taking care of me right now.
We meet at the lake,
Great super bowl game, Yawn. To each it’s own. I’m not a big football fan but was looking forward to a dramatic ending. The post-game Glee special was the play of the night for me. I’ve had my moments with Glee. On a good day I’m with it. But normally I go for some herbal green tea once the singing starts, and never find my way back to the television. The Dalton Academy Warblers made me a believer last night.
This week, whose pop song is at play? Well, if Beyonce (I mean Destiny’s Child) was the task. Darren Criss wins–a bunch of Latavia’s and Letoya’s dancing around while Criss killed it. Cosign that please. My eyes were locked on Criss tugging that blazer. And did you catch the mini dance cypher in slow motion? So 90′s right.

Hidetoshi Nakata—former Japanese soccer star is turning into a style icon to watch. Known for regularly attending runway shows and one of Asia’s most famous faces. Looking at this boy I’ma call him McDreamy. And he’s slicker than that guy who wears that thing on his eye. I mean, *sigh* sickening eyes. And I can tell you’re in touch with your feminine side. #superbass Some wear a suit and tie to not remain average. Nakata is modeling for Calvin Klein to remain above average. Currently he’s an Editor-at-Large at Monocle and my new crush…
July 2010-I already saw Jay-Z still in my twenties. Roc Nation Broadway office all Timbs in New York. Marquis Phifer had a meeting with the Roc people on the 38th floor. Who You Wit? Yeah, peep the repertoire. But it still happens, around midnight every other night. I get this urge to be around Jay Z’s philosophies. After all, he has become the biggest hip hop mogul of his day, and still is getting bigger by the second. “Yes men” can’t become “made men.”-Phifer’s words in how to survive in 2011.
“Everybody make some noise in 2011 is gonna be your best year ever. Ladies and gentlemen I need you to make the most noise of the evening right motherfuckin now.”
More tricks than a hooker. The best “gift” in life is knowing what you want to do professionally. The best “present” is getting paid to do it. The first working family. I just got off the Peter Pan bus; Phifer’s home. The World is back in order. Listen hun, I’m from the era of excellence. How do you get comfortable in the belly of the beast. Going by “Marquis Jedi-Blanco Talley” on the weekends I can be caught out looking like a dominican–republic; retaining supreme control (República Dominicana for the natives). Sneakers laced up like I’m about to perform the Himno Nacional. So show me your aspiring side. Well I hate the word “aspiring”. It’s like a crutch to what you haven’t conquered yet. If you got an idea, plan, a mission–fuck a goal those only count if you playing soccer. Yall ready to play?
My attention was caught by The 27s. I never looked for Gourmet’s before but these have a nice silhouette. At this time of the year, who isn’t searching for a younger, better, faster, stronger grain leather boot. It’s all about the new winter boot… –>Inside Story
Olivia. Olivia. Olivia Palermo I enjoy you so much. I thought maybe if I said your name three times you would appear. I found this clip of Olivia (four times) and you deserve an Emmy award for your brilliant performance… –>Inside Story
Sham aka Miss Showtime told me to take my jacket off and show my guns–I push work; the remix after we had our meeting with MTV. Welcome to the jungle, guest starring Sham Shirley… –>Inside Story
Somebody check the clock–it’s curfew time; run inside like a candle in the sunlight. These privileges I keep giving them to you raw; like we in the nude–I hope that wasn’t considered rude. I’m having mink thoughts; cold like December–sorta like Christmas, just don’t slip me the receipts… –>Inside Story
