i heart keith haring!

must buy a radiant baby shirt or somethin... #thatisall

new artist: sophia fresh



as i always say, maybe not "new new" but new to ME! how did i find them? was checking out music on necolebitchie.com, mainly that somehow teyanna taylor (my fav!) & kelly rowland had the same song lined up for their 1st singles... the post later mentioned a song called superbad that diamond & sophia fresh both did & produced videos for (the latter's video below).

like how hype they were in their video so i thought i'd explore more... i also appreciate when folks dance & don't do the i want to stand around in designer clothes and sell my sexiness angle. don't get me wrong they still are working the young pretty girl sexy angle but at least it's active (ok i'm biased bc i love dancing!) sophia fresh myspace. their official website is sensory overload w/ all the colors, but it's cute

grigory perelman

learned about this guy on friday via a random tweet i looked more into tweet by looking up some stories & he's def somethin!

thinking maybe there is a thin line between genius & mental instability (or disorders). life is very interesting...


Jean-Michel Basquiat

sooooo this am i JUST remembered i've wanted to see the '96 film about basquiat for years! did some super quick, basic research pre film watching (thanks wikipedia).

the talented always die extra young (& usually drugs are somewhere in the mix). he was only 27 when he died of a heroine overdose :(

pic on right is from an article in '85 ny time magazine. below is a clip of him & andy wharhol. i like how he doesn't really sit still & how he questions what's going on in the clip. one guy commented that he looks like kid cudi & i can see that!




UPDATE: ok so just saw the movie & i'm very impressed by jeffrey wright's performance (his range as an actor is craaaaazy!) also came across this old school (80s) vid of basquiat on some public access called tv party. very painful to watch bc really bootleg, but enjoyable
