Look At Your Game, Girl

One of the good things about having a lot of tracks on your iPod -- in my case over 8500 -- is that you have so many, that you're bound to forget albums and songs in your digital collection. Was recently caught off guard by the song below.


Thought to myself  "Hey, this is pretty good. I wonder who..."

Oh right...him.


Chuckie kinda had some chops though...

Episode 12: Omega Jackson III

Where in the world...?

I'm podcasting again.  (I think)

Couldn't think of a better place to re-start than with now frequent guest Omega Jackson. He's on the broke rapper phone plan, so we were forced to keep the conversation relatively short. Topics discussed include: 2012 (a terrible year), low-key touring spots for hip hop acts, Kreayshawn, J-Zone, and the uppercut bus driver.

Haven't done this in a bit, so please excuse any technical (or content quality) issues. I think it's all good though. Working at re-establishing an iTunes feed for future episodes.

Dres on 'U Mean I'm Not'

Egg yolk

Today on Twitter, Dres shared a pretty interesting anecdote about track number two on A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing. (Released 21 years ago on this day, October 22) 

In case you missed it, and don't care to scroll down, click here to read my interview with Dres.

Trix is for the children.

They don't sell the stuff in Canada anymore.

Made arrangements for a friend to acquire a box on a dangerous cross boarding shopping trip.

Tomorrow morning I will fix myself a big bowl of cereal with some cold milk. I will park myself in front of the  television laptop and watch one episode each of Tales of the Wizard of Oz, The New Adventures of Pinocchio, and Rocket Robin Hood.

Some days I sit and wish I was a kid again.

Put This On: Season 2 - Episode 5: Elegance (Milan)

Put This On, a web series about dressing like a grownup, visits Milan, a world fashion capital.

In this episode, our director Benjamin Ahr Harrison visits Biella, north of the city, to talk with Luciano Barbera. Barbera isn’t just one of the world’s most elegant men, he’s also the leader of Carlo Barbera, one of the finest fabric mills in existence.

For our PTO Place segment, we talk with the owner of G. Lorenzi. It started as a cutlery shop, and has become a spectacular tribute to the finest small accessories imaginable. It’s home to a visually stunning spectrum of knives, scissors, shaving goods, toothbrushes, combs, shoehorns and other tiny necessities.

In PTO Man, we visit Salvatore Battello, the elegant owner of W-D Man. Before he started his line, he ran one of the last companies in the world that worked with shagreen - the beautiful skin of sharks and rays. Battello tells us about his passion for vintage fabric, and his definition of elegance.

Plus Jesse answers the question “what color shoes go with the suit?” and Dave Hill offers a rudiment on the topic of socks.

This is the fifth episode in our six-episode second season. In this season, we visit the three greatest men’s style cities in the world, as chosen by our readers - New York, Milan and London.
