I want to be this guy.

I have a strong desire to have a pair of shoes that are this bright, paired with a super subtle suit. It’s actually how I would love to dress going to work everyday if I could.

I can’t even handle how much I love this, I really really can’t.

Ciara v. Rihanna – Bitch, today isn’t yo day…unforgivable.

Facebook ❤ Gays – Facebook is recognizing civil unions and domestic partnerships via updated relationship status options. I guess ‘married’ isn’t just as good?

A place call BabyCakesNYC has a super awesome idea for soliciting tips: rap beefs. I’m sure this is a very hipster thing since white people have mostly co-opted ‘old school’ hip-hop.

I wonder if there will ever been a Lil Kim v Nicki, 50 v. Ja Rule, Xtina v. Weight tip jar…

I mean, yes this is offensive…but it seems likely given how things ‘are.’

I ❤ Karl Lagerfeld because he has no behavior with what he says.

My sisters were sent away because my mother thought they were boring. I was not boring
I was never a feminist because I was never ugly enough for that
My business plan has always been about working more than others to prove their uselessness
Yes, some people say to me you’re too skinny, but never a skinny person says that to me, only people who could lose a few pounds say that

I have no human feelings
I am basically the most superficial person in the world\
I am made of total egoism

The iPod is genius. I have 300

I love this man, he is crazy in the best way.

Why is this so amazing? Hipsters, you fucking win. You make everything so much more lolsy.

Ray-J the Creator – Ray says: I don’t hang with stars, I create them. You hear that Kim K?

World’s Biggest Family – Aside from world religions, the world’s biggest family all live in a 100-room mansion…1 head of house.

Craigslist Rethought – The most hilarious parody of Craigslist is Craigs Lisp. It’s beyond funny.

Hip Hop Bitch War – As you know, Lil Kim’s irrelevance and Nicki’s hotness are being discussed. But Foxy has some interesting knowledge to be dropped.

CBS x Netflix – Netflix is not going to let Amazon fuck them over just yet, they’ve partnered with CBS to bring some beloved classics to Netflix. Game on!

Reputation, reputation, reputation! O! I have lost my reputation. I have lost the immortal part of myself, and what remains is bestial. My reputation, Iago, my reputation! – Cassio, Shakespeare’s Othello

I recently caught up with friends this past weekend, and had a chance to reflect on ‘reputations.’ It’s amazing how your reputation can follow you, yet you might never know exactly what it is.

You know the scenario, you meet someone, you figure out what town they’re from, what school they went to or where they work and bam. You’ve found a common link, and usually the shit starts.

You can pretend to say nothing or just let out all of the juice. Now your impression of your ‘friend’ or co-worker is mired and/or confirmed. The fakers among us will have always shown their weakness to someone and that disconnect (should their be one) will comprise your reputation.

I’m happy that I know what people think of me, mainly because I’m so bluntly honest that people only see it to tell me honestly how they feel or I’m aware (read: overly analytical and sensitive) enough to figure it out.

I’m an asshole, and to that I just shrug. Yet, I’m also a really nice person (when I want to be), and am pretty caring, loving and all of those other good things. I just happen to lack a central filter so I hardly pretend.

But I still find it interesting how you can put on a veneer and still be exposed for who you really are with the slightest degree of separation from a lover scorned, a friend lost or bridge otherwise burned.
