Onyxnuts

Mama Messhausen packed The Onyx Hotel. The traditional Philippino love song followed by Proud Mary had the crowd joining in on the action & screaming for more. Das Hussy had some great records with her & googly eyes on her breasts that got flashed to a few lucky people (wish I had a picture).
It was a very memorable evening, thank you all for coming.

Meteorite vs. Violet

The milliner Stephen Jones has launched his first fragrance at Dover Street Market in London. The collaboration with Comme des Garcons will soon be available at CdG boutiques worldwide. The perfume is described as a “meteorite crashing into a violet” or “futuristic but rococo”. It includes notes of violet, violet leaf, ‘synthesized cyber aldehyde’, clove, carnation, rose, jasmine, heliotrope, gaiac wood, magma, black cumin, vetiver and amber.

Sounds like a perfect CdG fragrance to me. Of course, I want it. Thanks.
(Hail Mary!)

21 Nights

21 nights

When I attended a couple of Prince concerts last year, I was hoping for a live album. Especially of the aftershows that took place at a smaller venue at the O2 Arena in London. And in October, a little bit over a year later, this is what’s happening.

Prince and photographer Randee St. Nicolas are releasing 21 Nights, a book of photographs spanning his London residency, including poetry, lyrics and “Indigo Night,” a CD–available only with the book–capturing Prince’s live after-show sessions.

Update: Tracklist of the CD

Do You Believe In Life After Love?

Surprise: I’m a little bit in love with Kanye, again.

It's a Love Lockdown

Of course, it all started when he sang his new single, Love Lockdown at the MTV Awards. Then he posted the song on his blog, then yesterday, a new version. Update: Now on iTunes.

After listening to the song on repeat, I found the above picture of ‘Ye at New York fashion week on Laura’s blog. How could I have not fallen for a sad puppy?

I can feel something inside me say
I really don’t think you’re strong enough

One question remains: Is Kanye the new Cher?
At least, he has to be the new Queen of Auto-Tune. There is lots of hope that his new album, tentatively titled 808’s & Heartbreak (out December 16), has lots of filters on his singing voice. Rumor has it the raps are gone.

Where is the cute college bear?!
