Marc Jacobs Meets Andy Warhol

Recently Marc Jacobs was featured on the cover of June/July issue of Interview Magazine. On the cover he was given the looks of Andy Warhol, as the magazine describes him as the Warhol of our times. Now the Marc By Marc Jacobs line released t-shirts and tote bags that features the cover art of the magazine. “Warhol is Warhol. He’s practically a god. I thought, ‘I’m going to get a lot of hell for this,” the designer says of his Interview photoshoot. Proceeds from the sale of the T-shirts ($35) and tote bags ($15) will benefit the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. They are now available in Marc Jacobs stores.

Currently Reading...

The Pact. I was first introduced to this book exactly four years ago. I attended a summer program at Clark Atlanta University that was geared to producing more doctors in the black community [I never wanted to be a doctor, the program payed $500 lol]. Part of the program required participants to read this book. Never had I ever been motivated to do so well in school.
This book is about three inner city youths coming up on the hard streets of Newark, NJ. During their junior year in high school they all made an agreement to enter a college program that provided a comprehensive path for inner city high school graduates to continue their education and one day become doctors. Throughout the book, the authors, Drs. Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, and Rameck Hunt, chronicled their major ups and downs on their path to graduating med school. Not only are they all friends to this day, they are all doctors.
This is a story about the power of friendship. Of joining forces and beating the odds. A story about changing your life, and the lives of those you love the most. To me this book is a must read for anyone who is on the course of pursuing any type of goal. This is a book that I am currently rereading to help keep me motivated to complete my educational goals. I hope you pick up a copy and do the same. For more information visit

Hate to do it Again....

.....but I had to post another Madonna flashback video. Don't grill me for this. Sometimes music isn't all about a hype beat or a person who can actually sing. Sometimes its about artists who have something to say. And for this reason, Madonna has gained my respect.

Supra Tuf Collection

Supra introduced after their regular collection first the NS (non skate) range, which consisted of shoes featuring premium materials and design.

The next sub-label to hit the market is the Supra Tuf Collection. The Supra Tuf collection, which consists of high performance skate shoes. The entire range features abrasion resistant materials on the uppers and they are also rider tested. It will be interesting to see how Supra fuses style and function in the new Tuf range.

Expect the Supra Tuf collection to hit retailers beginning of June.
