A few more words

With music being in it's recent critical condition. There haven't been many new artists that I have given a second listen. Currently with everyone OVER-DOING this 80's thing, we have a lot of artists straight jacking the music and style (Which was GOD AWFUL to begin with) and adding their annoying vocals causing them major success amongst the style-less, creativity and originality-less youngins around today. But, to all those with a drop of decency left, meaning: those who refuse to wear fake huge rope chains, the ever so contradictory tight jeans with the saggy booty and more colors than you can find in the Crayola 84 pack. I would like to introduce the best thing since Tay Zonday.
Ladies and gentleman, a breath of fresh air:

Calvin Harris



A brief word for all 2 of our viewers.

With this extremely fast cyber-time that we are currently in we're a bit late . However, I would like for us to have a moment of silence (Means: turn off your whack-ass play lists) for Estelle Getty who died at the ripe young age of 84. ----------------------------------------------------. She's brought us Many -a- laughs over the years. You'll be missed.

An EGO Trip


Fataah Dihaan, member of the Brian Wood Collective, is throwing a party in the LES Thursday night.  The team at Spur Tree asked him to bring his best and brightest to the space for a one-night affair.   He demanded the music of the night be hip-hop, r&b, funk, soul classics and soulful house.  Most importantly, he wanted to control the list.  What did he call the party?

EGO.

And with the current RSVP count, it looks like a lot of people are ready for the EGO trip.

All are welcome to attend.  Please be sure to RSVP at ego7.24@gmail.com.

SAVE NEW YORK

fall/winter 2008


“When did New York get so lame?” New York City seems to be losing the elements that made it so incredibly artistic and audacious. What happened to the artistic vision and aweless fire that made this city great? What happened to the expressive movement and energy that moved New York? Brian Wood finds his inspiration in what used to be and what’s so obviously missing from New York’s legendary “scene” to create his “Save New York” Exclusive t-shirt line for 2008. Brian’s latest collection, SAVE NEW YORK gives artistry to the question on everyone’s minds, What happened to New York?


AFRICAN VINTAGE LOGO

Leaving an imprint on New York’s indie fashion circles for the past few years with experimental, expressive collections, young NYC-based designer Brian Wood sees his latest African Warlord line culminating with the drop of his upcoming Africa Vintage Logo limited edition tee. Known for artistic pieces suited for the streets and runways alike, Brian Wood’s designs are a product of creative vision and the tutelage of visionaries like Marc Jacobs and Anna Sui. The African Warlord concept was an examination of the impact Western popular culture has had on continental African sensibilities. Ripe with color and content, each piece spoke to the collision of two world cultures. With the Africa Vintage Logo tee, Brian Wood presents his most artfully crafted piece in the collection thus far. The cut and sew tee features 6 printed iconic vintage logos, with a 4 panel-pieced front, and raw edge sleeve finish. The back neck label is also stitched on an appliqu├ęd square of authentic Khenti cloth. Limited to only 100 total pieces produced, the Africa Vintage Logo tee will surely be a rare delicacy among the boutique circuit.
