Quiet desperation was never so civilized. I keep this by my bed at my parents’ house. Dope cover design too.
No Twitter icon, no Facebook icon, CLEAN!!!! Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you maintain a brand. Does that guy in the ad look like he is on Twitter all day? No! Like Jay-Z rapped in the highly incredible Light Up Remix (complete with Lil’ Wayne verse phoned in from jail): Y’all can miss me with that money talk The smart money’s on Hov, fuck what the dummies talk I...

Now that Obama is president, Kwanza is dead right? I think we’re post-racial, but I don’t spend too much time with main stream media and large institutions, so I’m not sure.
“That is the definition of happiness: ‘complete use of one’s faculties along the lines leading to excellence in a life affording them scope.’” -Jackie O. (From the new Vanity Fair with Johnny Depp cover, its a good one)
Another old favorite.
I think leopard print is #epicfail always and everywhere, but the rough horse hair (?) fur texture on these Keds almost made me change my mind. I’d get back into sneakers if it were about fabrics instead of yet another colorway on the same old Nikes. I never was able to cop the Missoni x Chuck Taylors when they came out. Too bad they’re $400 on eBay now, otherwise I’d love a...

What did I have to do to get a dish towel embroidered with a @kanyewest tweet? Nothing, bam, fantastic gift!
To Do: hocroad: All my buddies who get out on the early tip are familiar with this view, and it’s awesome every time I see it.
RIP Pup Pup
Pup Pup 8-19-1997 - 12-6-2010 Ms. Pup lost her battle with time today and we are heartbroken. But her life was rich and full including her theatrical debut as Toto in the Pelham Children’s Theater production of Wizard of Oz, her semester of higher education at Colgate living with Ted (that’s almost a degree in dog years) and her salad days scouting snacks with her sidekick,...

There will be no great novel of my generation. Not to say the medium itself isn’t relevant, but something of that medium will never again define a cultural moment from here on out.
“They were careless people, Tom and Daisy — they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.” -F. Scott I remember it as a literary profundity. Its actually just a really good burn.
Kanye West Album Review
by @heems of Das Racist (sidebar: Top 3 Smartest/Most Literate Rapper Acts - Das Racist, Da Clipse, Jay-Z) http://nehrujackets.tumblr.com/post/1584124909/reviewing-kanye-wests-my-beautiful-dark-twisted Its a great review, my favorite phrase: Swizzy is ultra-income art-rap too. I love that phrase. Sounds so appropriately jargon-y, like High Net Worth Individual.
“I’ve sold it all from crack, to opi-um (OPM?), in third person, I don’t want to see em (him/them?), so I’m rehearsin’” Dude is so nice. Check out this annotated page of lyrics from his upcoming book, Decoded. Excerpt included in a glowing WSJ profile, obvi. Kanye isn’t worth your attention, Jay-Z is the real auteur!
