ND

Besides The Killers and The Spice Girls (don't judge me!), No Doubt is my favourite band of all time (since 1995 anyway). This new picture has me really excited.

1. JACKETS, JACKETS, JACKETS! Do yourself a favor and go out and get an over-sized blazer and one black/gray motorcycle jacket...I want a motorcycle jacket REAL bad. I passed up on one I almost bought- except it was wool and not ~leatha~.

2. Asymmetry is the new symmetry. Think Comme des Garcons.

3. Black and gray denim is your friend. Trust.

Divorce does the body good

Madonna steps out for the first time since announcing her plans of divorce at a Gucci sponsored Unicef event. Wearing a Louis Vuitton dress made of feathers, Madonna looked the best she has in months. Green with envy Mr. Ritchie?

Obama Fever

Seems like everyone has Obama fever and now it's being translated into the world of fashion and entertainment. Can you imagine wearing McCain's face on a t-shirt dress? Dread the thought.

And here is Madonna sporting the same t-shirt I blogged about a while ago.

You should listen to this

Proposition 8 in the state of California calls for the re-banning of gay marriage. On election day, while many were making change by electing Barack Obama, 52% of Californians decided that gay people should no longer be allowed to marry. So where does this leave the 18'000 couples whom have wed since gay marriage was allowed in California? Are their marriages in null and void? So far, all is silent on the retro-activity of this now-passed proposition. Below is a video of MSNBC's Keith Olbermann discussing Prop 8. I highly urge you to watch it and send it to as many people as you think will appreciate/be changed by it. Especially provocative is Olbermann's argument concerning this entire notion of 'redefining marriage,' you need to see it.

Yes, you did.

It is 11:51PM and I should be doing my work for WRI330, but instead I sit on my laptop and in front of the TV watching history unfold. The best candidate won, the brightest candidate won. After two years of constant campaigning, and decades upon centuries of oppression and systemic suppression of minorities, Barack Hussein Obama II is the president of the United States of America. He is the 44th president and oh yeah, he's a Black man. Never did I think I would be witness to equality personified in such a way. After many months of a McCain/Palin campaign filled with hateful slurs, schemes and bewildering ignorance, Obama has shone as a beacon of integrity, elegance, dignity and eloquence.

It is now 11:57PM and the next first family of the United States has just taken stage. I watch his speech while holding back tears. Autumn just got a little greener. Change is here. Yes you can and yes...you did.

Make it work

Daveigh Chase wore this shirt at an event last week and I could've swore that I had seen it somewhere. A couple of minutes later I made the connection realizing I almost bought the same shirt from Urban Outfitters. A $44.00 men's shirt for kinda-red carpet event? Make it work!
