Wu-Tang Design Remix Project

Designer Logan Walters made the observation that "most of the Wu Tang album art was horrible (ODB's two albums being the only real exceptions) he says--no offense to the original designers, but as iconic as they might be, they're looking pretty dated these days." So, Walters took it upon himself to create his own versions of all twenty-one covers inspired by Blue Note jazz covers...

And You Say Chi-City...

My home city Chicago gets a modern update by architect Zaha Hadid, Pritzker-winner. The new "Burnham Pavilion" is a bent-aluminum and fabric construction erected in Millennium Park to pay tribute to the centenary of the Burnham Plan, which mapped out the blueprint for the Windy City in 1909. Dope!


Baby Bape

I am not a fan of A Bathing Ape or BAPE clothing brand, but I do admire Nigo (Founder/Creator) of Bape. He just opened a new BAPE Kids store at Isetan Company department store in Shinjuk, Toyko. You gotta love the hustle!

R.I.P John Hughes...

I just found out that two weeks ago Writer/Director/Producer John Hughes died of a heart attack in New York City. Hughes was born in Michagan, but did a lot of his work in Illinois, my home state and wrote and directed some of the greatest comdey movies of the 80's, such as The Breakfast Club, National Lampoon's Vacation, Sixteen Candles, Some Kind of Wonderful, Weird Science, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Great Outdoors, Home Alone and many more. These are the movies I grew up on! Shout out to John Hughes and his family... He will be missed, but his movies will entertain forever.

My Kind Of Lady!






















This is what I imagine summer time in NYC to look like. Look at how free and relaxed she looks walking the streets! I don't even like dogs, but I would make an exception in this case. Shout out to S. Schuman "The Sartorialist" for the pic. Check out his blog at thesartioralist.blogspot.com.

2009 Gullwing Mercedes-Benz 300 SL

These pics are old, but this whip is so dope I had to post it. A remake of the 1954 version.
