I've always thought Ciara is sexy. But when Missy Elliot said it, it was awkward. It's better when Justin Timberlake says it. And boy did he say it in their collabo "Love Sex Magic." Continue
As Rihanna sits on the sideline, waiting for the bruises on her face (and her heart) to heal (steak with a Laker always helps). Ciara boldly stepped up to fill the void left by her absentee…

The spring collection from Parisian designer Gaspard Yurkeivich, simply named "Y," is energetic, avant garde and chic. The pieces are both classic and bourgeois, simple and decadent, with splashes of color and architectural structure for contrast.
Having trained under Jean Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler, Yurkeivich excels in mixing elements of streetwear with a touch of high fashion. For his women's spring collection, the designer reflected on the styles of liberate… Continue

Cult Films have limited but very special appeal.

They are often considered controversial because they step outside standard narrative and technical conventions. They can be very stylized, and they are often flawed or unusual in some striking way.
Most cult films cut across many film genres (science… Continue

Yuta Onoda is a very talented illustrator and artist originally from Japan who's currently working on his Bachelor of Applied Arts at the Sheridan College in Canada. I love the fact that you can see the Asian influence in his work but with his use of interesting color combinations, it comes off as fresh and modern. He'll be showing some of his work…

I liked the food at Street, but the service was really slow and not worth mentioning; however, I didn't really mind because it had only opened a few days prior to my visit and from what I've seen, every new eatery has a ramp-up period.
There's a $35 tasting menu but I didn't get it since it was Indian-themed that evening and I had had Indian food for lunch. My group enjoyed the outdoor… Continue

Love this poster of Mahattan (titled 'Man Hat Tan') that was a collaboration between Three Potato Four and designer Jim Datz. It combines several of their loves (and ours) - New York City, typography, color, 50's inspired illustrations, and urban signage.
The first edition quickly sold out (in a week and a half)…
