Hot Damn Chris Brown

So I've been feelin this song for some time now and just caught the video. "I Can Transform Ya" by Chris Brown featuring Lil' Wayne PRODUCED by the GREAT Swizz Beatz. I Die.

Basically, I like the song, he looks mad hot in the video (shit, is he legal? I'm a pedophile then!) and I love love love Swizz Beatz.

my question - what would have happened if Chris Brown's girlfriend that he beat on WASN'T Rihanna and just a normal, non-celebrity girl? Would it have been such a media field day or do you think she would have been paid off?

should we still be supporting this singer?

Canada - it's EVERYWHERE

first trip to Canada - magical.

people are cool, stores are cool and concert goers are just like Jersey kids, maybe even better.

saw Boys Night Out for what may be, but so hope it's not, they're last show ever. They had the original line-up play all of their EP and first album - AMAZING.

did i write about this already? it was just that good.

also need to write on another show. it's so weird feeling seeing Boys Night Out and then tonight i dragged my one friend to see Greeley Estates and From First to Last. talk about blast from the past!

i wish is was like 2006/2007/2008 somehwere in there. maybe 2005 going into 2006 - yea...

interviewing one of my dream musicians/singers. i have no idea what to ask. besides for his hand in marriage, haha

Blink, AFI, Dance Gavin & Emarosa

What a week!

Well, Blink 182 was a smidge more than a week, but whatever.

So we went to the Blink 182 show at Madison Square Garden and it was so surreal, but awesome. My friend had box seats, so up in the heavens we sat. Only super plus side to it - free sodas & beers, private bathrooms and though other people from her job were there, I could act a fool without a crowd of on-lookers.

Missed Asher Roth, who filled in for All-American Rejects b/c one of them was hurt, bummed, but saw most of Fall Out Boy - my first. They were good.

Blink 182...it was like so surreal b/c I felt as though I was watching a special on MTV about Blink. All the hits, so good. They did play a lot from the last album, which sucked, but oh wells. Travis did a drum solo set where his platform moved in the air, but after that, the sound sucked and made the songs hard to understand.

Oh wells.

AFI. I love them. I stood off to the side of the stage, so while yea, you were on the side, you still were like right there. Plus it's Starland Ballroom - it's mad tiny (in comparision to others), so it's all good.

Gallows were great openers and the lead singer jumped to sing for a bit on the pizza/water bars on the floors - sick. Plus his accent is mad cute.

AFI played some great songs, I'm still not totally familiar with the new album, but they did not play "Days of the Pheonix" or "God Called in Sick Today." What the hell! Seeing them again soon in NYC!

Dance Gavin Dance & Emarosa

Well, School of Rock was like the only area stop for this tour and I was there anyways during the day, so...I chilled to see two of my favorite bands of the moment!

Missed the opening three acts, who honestly, all sounded the same and had similar names. Of Machines, Tides of Men, Of Mice and Men - see?

I had thought DGD was the headliner, but I think Emarosa sold out a previous headlining show, so they let Emarosa headline the evening. I really wish DGD had the last slot.

Before the show, I heard their one guitarist/screamer playing something old on his guitar and got excited. They did "Lemon Meringue Tie" and it didn't hit me until then Jonny Craig joined Kurt on stage and started singing and hugging him. Bro love.

Ugh! I died. "Don't Tell Dave" is my favorite and "Rock Solid" ended the set. Way too short and they had like 'electronic interludes,' which I wish they didn't just so they could play more OR had the last slot.

Emarosa is amazing live. Their singer is insanely talented, but shorter then I thought. I was going to leave early, but kept saying 'one more song...' and then when I was ready, it was over. They did almost 40mins. Jonny Craig made mention his voice was hurting, but didn't give on in his vocals. But if he was sick - let DGD go on and play till 11pm!

Oh wells...

Short and sweet and really good.

Surreal moments going on lately though.

It was like Blink, AFI, interview with the bassist of Paramore, watching DGD from the side/back stage, fitting for a show tomorrow and then we're off to a music festival in Iceland.

I DIE!!!!

earlier today, Alexander McQueen was doing a live stream of his fashion show for the Spring/Summer 2010 line. UNFORTUNATELY...i guess so many people wanted in that I couldn't see it live.

I just did.

I've cried before at his shows that you can find online.

So I was stoked for this one. But, I wasn't as overwhelmed as I thought I would be. Still really amazing though.

It was on Showstudio and the McQueen website. Check it out.

All I have to say is...the answer to metallic (which i'm sick of)...IRIDESCENT!!!

No photos I can readily find online. So check out the last look. I'm drooling.

Oh! Here's my little take on the collection -
Titled "Plato's Atlantis" for the S/S 2010 woman's wear

If you remembered the title and read a few reviews, you knew it was like this future island and you went through all the inhabitants with a big brother type eye on the people.

I definitely got the 'here are the animals/natives' then the 'people who worked at like the lab/quarentined area' then the 'people in charge a little on the military side' and wrapped up with 'alien visitors'

The shoes for the beginning - holy shit. they were like the ballet toe fetish heeled shoes in their shape (especially from the side and back) but were platforms. Check it. It's funny - focus also on the models' facial expressions, you can see the stress of 'don't fall don't fall don't fall.' Poor girls (but that's why they get paid beacoup bucks)
