With this being Christmas and all, A.K. and I decided to come up with some cool holiday stuff to pick up for yourself and/or the family this Holiday season. We all know that every year there are a few cool items that flood into our minds as “the absolute must have item” (beanie babies, anyone??) This year is no exception, as thoughts of something called Zhu Zhu Hamsters crawl up into our little heads and have us going crazy with jubilation. No offense, but what in the hell is that?? Anywho, this neat little gadget called Yoostar came on tv the other day. It’s a cool little device that allows you to be “in the movies” and act out some of your favorite scenes in popular movies. With use of a little webcam and a remote control, you can remake movie magic in your own special way. It’ll set you back about $169.99 but it’s real fun to play with the family and friends. They’re constantly adding new scenes so sooner or later your favorite movie will be there to reenact just like you want! Once done, simply upload it to Facebook or Myspace for the masses to see! I can’t wait until The Last Dragon is available so I can play Sho’Nuff! Who’s da master!!!

I”m sitting here vibin to the Kanye West album 808’s and Heartbreak. Even though he is not the most loved man in the world right now (yeah it was pretty foul what he did at the VMAs), no one can deny his talent.. So when I first heard this cd, I wasn’t too impressed. Then I began to realize something…what he went through (or probably still going thru..i dunno) was a harsh reality that I think a lot of people take for granted. One day you’re here, then the next you’re not. In his case, he lost two loves within a very brief period. That’s damning to any person, regardless of how strong they think they are. On the flipside, the old saying goes “you’re at your best when you’re at your worst”. The creative side of his brain was at it’s absolute best at that time in his life….all because he was at his worst.
It’s never easy to get over heartache, whether it’s a breakup or death of a loved one. People are at their most emotional state when it occurs. How we handle it and the support system we have in place are the true tests of our well-being.
Sometimes life just isn’t fair. Remember…prayer overcomes all.
Ok, so I decided to change up my idea for the “official site” a little. When looking at other sites and the layouts, I made a concious decision to follow suit. Other sites are very straight forward and to the point. One site in particular is Ser-vice Apparel. It’s following the same idea as I want; very simple clothes for simple lifestyles. I will add a playlist to mines however that gives the option to listen to “D..by L.J. radio” while browsing. I will then incorporate local artists and such. That kills 2 birds with one stone: adding good music to the site and having good artists with an overall great browsing experience. I learned that from freepeople.com :-). The site will open up straight to the models and not need a flash template or any other fancy shmancy site. I will add this blog also. It’s going to be simple yet perfection. Yeah! It’s coming soon enough….
