Bend and Snap

I was recently listening to the Soundtrack of Legally Blonde: The Musical and the song "Bend and Snap" came on and it got me thinking.....Does it really work?

I know it sounds silly but the concept had to come from somewhere. There are magazines articles decorated with advice on how our body language can send messages to the man we are interested in. From leaning in to him when he's talking to sitting up straight so show off our feminine lines.

The world of flirting and dating is all a dance anyway, so why couldn't it be possible for this to be real and somehow practiced in real life?

In fact, i think i'm going to try an experiment. I'll ask some of my single girlfriends to try this move in a few different places and see what the results are. Or if any of you wanna try it, let me know your results by emailing me here

Can't wait to share the results with you guys! :-D

Obama Puts the Haters on Blast

Earlier today President Obama spoke to the US Congress about health care reform. He let it be known that there had been a lot of FALSE rumors going around and he was going to set the record straight. He acknowledged that it will take time but a huge updraft of changes CAN & MUST be made for the health of every legal American citizen. Watch his speech below and please listen to all parts of the speech.

Knowledge Corner

A lot of people like to hate on the Bay Area. As if all we can be recognized for is the crime rate. However i'd like to share with you the book for this week. Cinema by the Bay, written by Sheerly Avni is a book that brings to light all the great films that have been filmed by great Bay Area film production companies. That includes Shrek, Star Wars, The Incredibles, The Right Stuff and many others. Please read more about it here

We have to have love for our community and be able to spread it's rich history with others.

Really Jay?

So as i was perusing i came across Jay-Z's new commercial for Rhapsody and it was a montage of him re-creating all 10 of his album covers. It was quite boring to watch honestly. He made minor changes including removing a hat and standing next to a car to show us how "cool" he was. I feel that if your art cover was that simplistic to where you could show us all of them in such basic shots then i'm totally un-impressed. Also Green Day already did it. and they had 51 references! NEXT!


And Green Day

ThrowBack of the Week

I heard this on the radio and it really took me back. Kissing games are always fun. Unless you play "Spin-The-Bottle" and get someone with nasty breath. Oh well enjoy the music instead.

Spotlight on: Derek Blanks

The famed photographer, Derek Blanks has recently been seen as the photographer du jour on the latest episode of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Atlanta". His current body of work called the "Alter Ego" collection included photographs of Amerie, Eva Marcille, Tisha Campbell, David Banner, the "Housewives" and others. This has really been a superb project for him and it' always good to see a brother being appreciated for his talent.

People often say that his works of art are tangible illusions. Derek uses his subjects toillustrate an underlying story or meaning. Derek's comical and
quirky personality shines through all of his pictures. Whether it's
his graphic designs, painting or photographs there is always a
concept present. Born and raised in Mississippi, his mother realized his talent and
enrolled Derek in special art schools. He attended the Maryland Institute College of Art,
and graduated Magna Cum Laude, receiving his bachelors in Fine Arts. While
in Baltimore, he worked both as a painter and a freelance designer
for several prominent clients such as The Walters Art Gallery, The
Baltimore Sun, and the city paper.
