Hot.Hot. Hottttttt. The closest to white shoes I own are metallic gold; I almost vehemently oppose white shoes, but i can do these. Ohhh man, could I do these!! The excessive straps remind me of a pair I had when I was a fresh-off-the-boat, skinny, village-tanned tween with messy, middle-parted hair….but, yep, still struttin’ cute little heels. And, I’m loving the ankle-high, punk-chic look. Coming up to $1500 at Bergdorf and Barney’s, these babies could pay for my off-campus housing next year. Must get my priorities right. —need job.
“I Poke Her Face” and “She Came Along” has been circulating all over the blogworld. “Dat Kid From Cleveland” in complete is now available … Get it here
Frankly, I had higher expectations. But “Buggin Out 2009” is worth its time…thanks to Consequence. Unfortunately for him,the featured artists outshine Cudi.
Still, check it out…
My favorite is still Crooker’s remix to Day ‘n’ Nite. (Won Beatport’s best Indie Dance / Nu Disco Track award)

Subject: FORMAL NOTICE: Message from the Chancellor: Free Speech at Carolina
I want to express how disappointed I am in what happened last night when former Congressman Tom Tancredo wasn’t able to speak when a protest got out of hand, and our Department of Public Safety had to take action.
Congressman Tancredo felt threatened and left without making his remarks.
Mr. Tancredo was scheduled to speak about immigration. We expect protests about controversial subjects at Carolina. That’s part of our culture. But we also pride ourselves on being a place where all points of view can be expressed and heard. There’s a way to protest that respects free speech and allows people with opposing views to be heard.
Here that’s often meant that groups protesting a speaker have displayed signs or banners, silently expressing their opinions while the speaker had his or her say. That didn’t happen last night.
On behalf of our University community, I called Mr. Tancredo today to apologize for how he was treated. In addition, our Department of Public Safety is investigating this incident. They will pursue criminal charges if any are warranted. Our Division of Student Affairs is also investigating student involvement in the protest. If that investigation determines sufficient evidence, participating students could face Honor Court proceedings.
Carolina’s tradition of free speech is a fundamental part of what has made this place special for more than 200 years. Let’s recommit ourselves to that ideal.

In the ’90s, Scottish playwright Anthony Neilson wrote his bewitching tale of a couple’s twisted, brutal and passionate relationsihp in Stitching. Its opening at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, on August 2002 was welcomed with acclaims of shock and amazement.
Starring Meital Dohan, from Weeds, and John Ventimiglia, from The Sopranos, the play’s New York success takes it to Los Angeles.
I haven’t seen it yet, so I’ll let Paul Boston from LA Splash Magazie explain the plot.
The play opens with Abby and Stu discussing Abby’s unwanted pregnancy. Their vicious and childlike fighting is initially comical, using language so crass that it could make a group of sailors look like church boys, then through the course of several different non-chronological scenes, the audience discovers just how twisted Abby and Stu’s love relationship is. Fighting about nearly everything, the couple eventually attempts a non-committal sex game in which Abby pretends to be a prostitute for Stu, using the monetary gain to help pay her way through college. This game, however, becomes increasingly violent, climaxing in a hair pulling, hand biting, and black and blue wrestling match/sex scene. Only through the increasing aggression and violence in their game is the couple able to realize that they are completely unable to put their actual love for each other behind them.
I’ll be picking up the play and can’t wait to watch it on stage!
