The Scent Of A Human: Eau De Schwinn?

By L DeSilva-Johnson, published on Apr 16, 2009

... delicious(ly continental) while doing so.

It suggests looking like the guy pictured here... in which caseI heartily approve.

However, trembling under those textiles is the unSPOKEn (10 point pun, don't you agree?)dialogue in this aestheticised vision of a psuedoeuropean paean to fashion a la bicyclette: that is,that bicyclingleaves one... shall we say... moist?

By Kim, published on Apr 13, 2009

... Woodward, Wycliffe, Clayton and John, and Rickey and Clayton.

Wycliffe shared his versatile ingenuity by performing a special piece for our host - Betty Hoover on Piano. His Piano skills are akin to those on the Trombone - Incredibly Exquisite.

In his artistic fashion mixedother tunes with voice incorporating Scat to emphasize his point.

The audience was given a Scat lesson as well wherein we performed in great fashion if I say so myself.

This was an additional glorious event put on by Betty Hoover, the gracious host and... (more)

A Plea For More Denim

By Glenn T, published on Apr 7, 2009

...exposure to what must certainly be hundreds of thousands of different forms of attire – I honestly cannot conceive of a less flattering and more ridiculous way to clothe one’s self. It’s the ultimate failure of both form and function. If there is a mountain of ill-advised fashion choices, this is its summit.

When I speak to friends about this, they always open with the same question: do I mean for men or for women? And to this I answer: both. Of course, it is much more inexcusable for men - but you ladies aren't getting away scott-free.Don't get me wrong, I'm ... (more)

Gemstones

By Seema Upadhyay, published on Feb 18, 2009

“Diamonds are girl’s best friend”. Ask any women and she would agree to this. From ancient civilization to the present fashion jewelry, gemstones have been an integral part of women. Some use it to make a style or fashion statement whereas others purely follow the instructions of their astrologers. The Indian or Hindu astrologers suggest the gemstones based on the moon sign (placement of moon in a person’s birth chart or kundali) whereas in western culture the astrologers use sun signs.

The gemstones have vibrations and energy and hence affect a person’s... (more)

The Parent Crap: Learning To Say No

By CCNY, published on Oct 20, 2008

...pay the price...

So, Parents of Today, Unite! Take a little time every day to flex your flabby, atrophied NO muscles until your kids don't have to Google the word to figure out what you mean (thanks, Joey Kola). Here are some practice questions to get you started. Begin!

Can I have a $25,000 Sweet 16 Party?

Can I have $250 to buy hideous high-fashion shoes to wear to class ?

Can I have a Fantasy Camp life, and you foot the bill, or I'll hate you (until I need you again for something else)?

How'd you do? It's easy, no? OOPS! I've done it again...

Snow On The Grass (part 1)

By 'Mean' Mike Duffau, published on Oct 15, 2008

I was always intrigued about the life-style of fast money and wild women that go hand in hand with the Mob or underworld activities. I think maybe in my past life I was a made man in some fashion. Till this day I don't mind knowing what it's like to be involved in something like that, but I don't have the guts to do it. If Al Capone was alive you can bet that I would track him down and get a good write-up about his life story. Unfortunately, Snorky is not around but someone else is.

The stars were aligned in a certain way that I made a connection with a key figure in the cocaine empire.... (more)

Her ability to connect and care embraced us all evening.

The audience was called once again to join in on the sexy and sultry piece, "That's the time, feel like making love". The song was performed in such a tasteful and delicate fashion that even the most conservative fan had to join in and think of that special someone.

Roberta and her ensemble rocked the house with Stevie Wonder's Master Blaster and shouts could be heard throughout the auditorium on the '70's interesting and provocative, "Reverend Lee" I wouldn't... (more)

Mo' Than A Cup Of Joe...

By Kim, published on Sep 5, 2008

...refreshing of all...people writing, reading and communing. Some of the clientele are tapping their toes and actually listening to the music offered by musician Wilson Pickett belt out the Blues and Oldies over the intercom.

Nothing against Starbucks....but this space is an old fashion coffee house with just a touch of 21st century flavor. There's something for everyone - non-caffeine devotees as well.

The artwork on the brick walls is black and white still portraits of people and it is left to the imagination to interpret the artists' message. The crowd at... (more)
