McQueen, Meisel & Moss #Fashion #Editorial #Win

Ok, before you ask where has this lovely bloggy been, I have been deathly ill with the flu for  the 2 and a half time. This thing is easy to get apparently if you work at a 50,000 person convention for four days.

But that isn’t what you are here for is it?

My flu story can wait for another day. Fashion, is what really matters on this page. Especially the World of McQueen.

Sarah Burton has my support in spades. She is genius and is carrying on the McQueen legacy with aplomb. Take the newest fashion campaign. Hiring the ever talented Steven Meisel was smart. But genius stepped in when they added the omnipresent Kate Moss.

With creative direction from Pascal Dangin of KIDS, the 4 completed what can only be looked at as an astounding, and very surreal campaign. There is a mini Kate doll in these photos and I’m not sure whether I am more stunned by her or it. Most likely it’s the over all imagery. Intense, bold, beautiful and blue. The hues create the perfect campaign. Well done House of McQueen and Kate Moss. You’ve once again brought art into fashion.

And the campaign video is amazing as well. Very surreal with a nice creep factor.

Katt Williams Caught & Arrested #Finally #Duh

katt-williams-arrest

I guess Katt and Lilo only have so many get out of jail free cards and both just expired.

The look you see above is Katt Williams face when he finally got arrested for something. So far the funny man has escaped authorities on past charges for playing with guns and being ghetto but this time it stuck.

Katt was up Seattle and stopped by the World Sports Grille. There he got in a few verbal showdown with a few individuals and, according to the statement by Jonah Spangenthal-Lee, “brandished a pool cue at a bar manager and refused to leave the business.”

Here’s where Katt Brought the K-lassy. His psycho kicked in and he followed a family outside. According to the police report and EOnline.com Katt went full-scale ghetto;

As the family got into their car, Williams flicked a cigarette through a car window at a woman, striking her just below her eye,” said Spangenthal-Lee. “Williams also threw a rock at the family’s car.”

When arriving on the scene attempted to take him into custody, Williams subsequently resisted arrest.

After the Friday After Next star was finally subdued, he was booked into the nearby King County Jail for investigation of assault, harassment and obstructing police officers. A bail hearing was set for Monday afternoon.

Oh Homeboy. The problem with a life of crime? It will catch up to you.

I think Katt Williams will learn a valuable lesson. It’s that if you get booked on a weekend you usually don’t see the judge until Tuesday. He must have a REALLY good lawyer to be tried for bail today. Either way Micah ‘Katt’ Williams will most likely not get off with community service. We’re looking at jail time and a fine.

Flicking cigarette’s? Throwing rocks? Really?!

Funny man Katt, we’re sorry, but you aren’t so funny anymore.

Robocop Redux, Stealing my Childhood, One Piece at a Time

This has to stop. Every time a Hollywood producer makes a remake, a kitten dies. Ok, maybe not, but I die a little inside.

The newest victim; Robocop. According to ComingSoon.net these are the newest pictures being released of the ‘new’ and very much NOT improved Robocop.

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. I will say this in its favor;

1) In this global economy everyone needs a paycheck…badly. (They are filming this in Toronto, which is like Canada stealing our cash/jobs for our film industry. I ❤ Canadians but it is bad form by the producer.)

2) Great cast co-starring Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste. With Joel Kinnamin as Robocop (Game of Thrones, for you geeks).

Joel Kinnamin is a Swedish-American from Stockholm, so I can’t throw shade (I’m Swedish, gotta support your people). However he was utterly unlikable on ‘Game of Thrones’s’ (- one point). But to he IS dating Olivia Munn (+ point there).

I have mixed feelings about this production. Great cast, possibility for good movie. Destroying my childhood like this, well EVERYONE has had enough. Plus, the suit looks more Alien vs. Predator than Robocop.

I’m 50/50 on this. How are you feeling about the new Robocop and suit?
