Just launched a new lookbook for Billionaire Boys Club, highlighting items from their 8th season. We went a totally different direction this time, away from the page-turning style that we’d been using for a while. Now, people fly! Check it out. I think the animation works well with the photos. Flying people are fun.
Went to a “Microsoft party” last night… They’re putting out a t-shirt line, and Common designed some shirts for it. Microsoft seemed to be trying really hard to be cool. One of the displays was a big timeline of hip hop and Microsoft history, trying to link the two. Featuring a mug shot from when Bill Gates got arrested as a teenager. (street cred!)
The highlight of the night (aside from meeting Common, of course!) was watching Common perform UMC and freestyle with Biz Markie.
here are some photos I took, and a video that I did not take…
When I hear the word “Karaoke” it always makes me think of my old friend Sam, who told a bunch of us in elementary school that the correct pronunciation is “Kah – rah – oh – kay.” We probably mocked him at the time for pronouncing it like that, but that’s because we were jerks.
Anyway, now I’ll have to add another karaoke association in my head… Just launched a blog for Brian Raftery, who wrote a book about singing Karaoke. However you pronounce it, go check it out.
