Keywords: september 11, 2001, a day to remember, never forget

On the eleventh anniversary of September 11, 2001, we remember those whose lives were taken, the family and friends of the deceased, the brave men and women who rescued so many innocent people, those who are still suffering from the toxic effects, and anyone and everyone who was directly affected by this great tragedy. We will never forget.




Charles Barkley sports lipstick and a dress to show that men too can lose weight with Weight Watchers

Keywords: charles barkley, weight watchers, taco bell, 5 buck box

 

So two or three years ago Charles Barkley was the spokesmen for the Taco Bell 5 buck box. The commercial was actually pretty well done and quotable, but Chuck is a big man, so a fast food spot doesn’t really do too much for him. So now he is dressed in drag to promote Weight Watchers. When I first saw this commercial come up I was terrified, mainly because Barkley looks damn good in a dress. Gotta give him credit though, he did look slimmer and he claimed to have lost about 40 pounds. So hey, if Chuck can make it work then so can you…..as long as you ditch the Taco Bell.

Even with that, there is still one thing up for debate. Chuck looks classy in both commercials. But the Taco Bell one has him reciting poetry. Somehow Taco Bell gets the nod of the classier commercial, an award I doubt they will ever receive again.

Keywords: jason wu, nordstrom jane birkin, diffusion collection

After a successful collaboration with Target earlier this year, Jason Wu has decided to  collaborate with Nordstrom to create a new contemporary collection: Miss Wu. The first collection for spring 2013, will consist of 40 pieces, ranging in price from $195 to $795.

The collection is inspired by Jane Birkin and will consist of luxury materials such as leather, fine embroidery, and luxurious silks. If all goes as planned, Mr. Wu is looking to add accessories to the collection by 2014!  According to Wu, “I always see Jason Wu [the collection] as my aesthetic, my design sensibility. Miss Wu is my personality. It was really fun to explore that facet of who I am — slightly more downtown, and with a more relaxed attitude.”




Calls us all haters.   Ok.  If you say so.

Keywords: dwayne wade, pink pants, lebron james

 

There it is D Wade!   You told them.   Strutting up to that microphone wearing your tight pink pants all confidently-  throwing a jab that you think makes you sound cool.    It didn’t, all it did was pretty much just annoy everyone even more.

I wish I could say the rest of the interview was enjoyable,  but I turned it off as soon as Lebron started giggling like a little school girl at D Wades joke.

 

 

Stay tuned for the next round of Playoffs when Wade rolls out his latest fashions.   Have a safe weekend everyone!  Happy Memorial Day.   Be safe, designate a driver, wear protection and all that good stuff responsible adults usually say.

There is a good chance Odom will be playing in the Staples Center next year

Keywords: lamar odom, clippers, lakers

 

For the first time ever I am able to write about Lamar Odom without mentioning the Kardashians. Well never mind…..I just blew that one. Anyway, here is why there is no need to mention that family, Odom may actually give us some basketball related news soon! The Clippers are in play to bring the big man in, a move that would work for Odom considering how badly he wants to leave the Dallas area. Sure the Lakers would be supreme for him, but the Clippers are the next best thing to keep him from crying.




Hahahahahahaha!!!!!!!

 

Keyword: overalls, belly

Well, this is a new take on overalls!  I realize the photo quality is not the best and my boss might get a little pissed about that…however, I feel it was worth the post!  I mean, this guy is just letting it alllllll hang out, huh? I can’t stop staring at it. It’s like a bad accident! My guess is that this is some sort of costume party. If not, then this is the epitome of white trash! I wonder how many months along he is! :)
