Ralph Lauren Blankets

I take my bed very seriously, I've hand picked every pillow, blanket, sheet and matress on my bed. Right now, I'm rolling on a queen, with 800 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, a down duvet and a heated blanket. My pillows are all fucking super, I have three memory foams, three down's, and three mid-way pillows. I do this because, I usually only get 5-6 hours a sleep a night, so I figure that if the hours aren't that great, i might as well have a quality sleep. Anyways, I come home today and what do i find on my bed but a Ralph Lauren cashmere blanket. There are few things greater than a Ralph Lauren blanket, trust me.

Within the past few weeks, i've probably added five or six hundred songs to my itunes, and i've listened to most of it. I've also been meaning to send a bunch of people a bunch of music, either stuff I said I'd send them or just stuff i figure they may like, so here it is.
The playlists are in order, one for Andrew, one for Hannah, one for Geoff, one for Rachel, and one for Rico. In all honesty, I have no idea if you guys will like any of this stuff, but try it out haha. There's a few people that i'd like to send music to (Tyler, Nick, Eric) but I feel like you guys have pretty much every song I have and more, and often show me tunes. However, if you're reading this, the thought is there.

My Room.

So, i think you can tell alot about someone from their room (what they're into, how neat they are, how they dress, and i think someones room is a relection of themselves)

Leaving out the soon to be hung KAWS artwork, i took some shots.

I like to keep CDs and books near my computer to remind myself that there is more important things.

Two wallets, the first American dollar i ever got, a futura be@rbrick, and some other shit.

Only the beginning of a big shoe collection

I'm trying to fill my TV stand by the end of the year

I think its important to own your favorite movies, nevermind the "sex and the city"

And of course, my favorite part of my wardrobe, are my jeans. I have a few more pairs i didnt throw in

And one dollar origami by artist Ton Park

Lastly, i just found this funny. This is a seriously bold bird...

Sneakuhz On My Feet

Just a couple kicks i've noticed recently...

Kanye West x Louis Vuitton high-tops are a cop for sure.

Here’s a look at a new pair of the Era’s from Vans Vault’s 2009 Spring Collection. Using nubuck for its upper, these Vans Vault Eras will come in two nice colorways - teal blue and black. These Vans Eras also utilizes thin laces as opposed to the usual thick ones which makes these sneakers even more desirable.

Admiral Windsor Limited Editions are growing on me...

Long-standing British brand Admiral has seen most of its success amongst the Japanese contingency. The high-top style adorned in black patent leather is seen following a pleasant profile with little in the form of branding.

Edward Hart

Now, in all fairness I'd be lying if someone told me that there's a way to make taxidermy cool in a setting that doesn't involve a house with wheels, however last night at about 1:30am, I stumbled across Ed Hart.

Edward Hart was born on July 30th, 1847. His father, William Hart, was a taxidermist in Christchurch. He opened his first taxidermy shop in Bridge Street in 1834. The shop closed perhaps due to William's other manufactoring buisness: making watch chains.

Edward Hart continued accumulating his own collection and in 1866 he opened a museum in The Bow House to display his pieces. The total length of the bird cases was 270 feet with a height of 10 feet. The mammal cases extended another 30 feet (9 metres). The museum continued to increase in size, including upwards of 420 cases, containing 1350 specimens of birds, 2000 birds' egss, 1000 fossils and flint implements, moths and butterflies, and various horns, skulls, and antlers. The mammals included squirrels, rats, shrews, stoats and dormice. Hart arranged his birds and animals in naturalistic settings including painted backgrounds, rocks, and foliage. Hart also created several anthropomorphic tableaux which he called "Grotesque Groups" including Prize Fight, Leap Frog and The Barber.

Prize Fight was first displayed by Hart at the Great Exhibition. Consisting of five cases, the Fight shows two squirrels in various stages of a bozing match until the squirrel on the right is knocked out. The piece was bought by Lord and Lady Bangor and is still displayed in Castle Ward, Country Down, Northern Ireland, which has since been taken over by the National Trust.

I'm conflicted as to if i should call this art, but nevertheless, its quite interesting.

About Us

Check out this award winning video by a close friend of mine Nick Francis. He used about 2300 photos and put the thing together with his "team of hot chicks" as he calls them. Really well put together.

So, kind of like "quotables" in the source, I'm going to try and make the effort to post whenever I hear a verse or quote or w/e that i really like. This one has always got me. Although it isn't his best song by far, Jay's vesre in "Rhyme No More" which is the second part of "Intro/A Million And One Questions/Rhyme No More" gets me every time. This song on my iTunes has a playcount in the hundreds simply because I go back every time I hear it, because it never gets old for me.

Motherfuckers can't rhyme no more, bout crime no more
Til i'm no more, cause i'm so raw
My flow expose holes that they find in yours
Wasn't for me, n****az still be dying for whores
But i hate when a n***a sit back, admirin yours
Young blood you better get that, we frying baccars
N***az don't want to be confined to riding the iron horse
And don't listen to the rappers, they dying to floss
I used to be o.t., applyin the force
Shoot up the whole block, then the iron i toss
Come back with the click playing diana ross
I'm the boss and this is how it's gonna be
Burnt the turnpike, wild miles on the v
I got mouths to feed till they put flowers on me
And kiss my cold cheek, chicks crying like i was cochise
Tombstone read 'he was holdin no leaks'
Started from the crack game and then so sweet
Freaked it to the rap game, jigga the old-g
On mtv, telling em how i sold d
And used to back work up out of apartment 4-b
Me and my homie, started out coldies
Picked the mailbox lock cause i ain't have no key
Had the cable with the anchor when jaz made 'sophie'
Then i went low key, but now i'm back it's on

I think its pretty hard to argue that Jay-z is one of the best lyricists of all time, and although this isn't close to the best example, if you listen to the song...its pretty damn good.
