Wife for sale!

Omg! A Russian man decided to put an ad online to sell his wife!
He couldn't have just filed for a divorce?

The ad which is on says:

"Wife for sale. Model 1983, good condition. Full option, nice suspensions, spacious boot, second owner.

"Price is negotiable, comes with three-year-old and five-year-old accessories. Seriousness demanded."

Whoa! Is this legal? Are we able to sell people now?

Reality TV - Have we gone too far?

These days I really don't get a chance to watch television and the one time I sit down and flip through some stations I come across the title: "Sex with Mom and Dad"

Right away - I start watching and I think to myself since this is on MTV it has to be some sort of reality show.

It's a half hour show and it's basically a forum for teenagers and their parents to share details about their sex lives.

I think reality TV has gone overboard.

So because MTV says it's okay for you to tell dad that your favorite sexual position is doggy style - is that what other teens must now do?

On the other hand, this may open up better relationships for some families (but not all).

How awkward is it to find out (on national television) that your teenage son or daughter is having unprotected sex in your home?

In the episode I watched a Texas teenager named Tiara revealed that she's been having unprotected sex with her boyfriend for a long time.
The parents cried, the daughter cried, and then a therapist was consulted.
(ohhhh that's so typical right?!)

Later in the episode, the family sat together and shared stories about their sexual past, present, and future :/

Check out this clip from that episode:

Damn.... is it that cold?

The other day I was going through one of my new favorite sites and I saw this photo of a new Pierre Cardin design.

Pierre Cardin is a French fashion designer and is known for his "space age" style....
This overcoat/bubble/blue-ish 'thing' is just up his alley - what is this? who wears this? why? :'(
Will this actually keep someone warm or is it just a fashion statement? what about your arms? Well it is sorta like a vest..ahhh I don't understand this fashion thing. :( sad day!

Busy Weekendz

On Friday night I met up with some friends at a midtown spot named; Taj Lounge. I've given this place at least 3 tries and I've only had fun once and it was after drinking my very first "Manhattan". The atmosphere is sexy and if you are planning on meeting a special someone for a drink this is the perfect place.
But, if you plan on going with a group of people who just got off of work and is looking for a good time...avoid this place at all costs.

My little group could not decide where to go so I suggested having drinks at the South Street Seaport.
We stumbled upon Spiegel World a traveling venue. This turned out to be the perfect party scene - there was a huge liquor bar, plenty of breathing room, a coffee bar, a nice sized dance floor, hammocks facing the water and some freaky show going on between shut was perfect. I sipped on a cosmopolitan facing the Brooklyn Bridge dancing and just thinking how beautiful it is out. I had a great time. I highly recommend checking out this venue.
On Saturday, I started my day with filming 2 artist Cortesnyc & MeresOne finishing up a wall over at 5 Points in LIC Queens (more photos and a video documenting the process is soon to come)

Later that night I attended a release party/signing at a small store in the Lower East Side that sells designer toys called "my-plastic-heart-nyc".
The event was cool and relaxed - there was even a dj spinning; (TwreXX) while every one looked at these well crafted toys and drank Pabst Blue Ribbon. The release party was for artist Marka27's next dope vinyl figure, Killa Instinct. Check out Marka's art - he's great: Marka27

And on Sunday I relaxed :)

Movie review time!

Last night I watched one of my Blockbuster rentals.
This week's movie: "The Namesake".

My goodness what a touching film by director; Mira Nair.
Nair also directed one of my favorite movies; "Hysterical Blindness" (great movie!).

Ok back to The Namesake -
There were a few times I cried (I tried to hide it and not seem like a wuss but there were so many heart grabbing scenes).
*And no I did not watch this movie alone - I just realized how sad that must sound lol

There were a lot of themes in this movie that almost everyone could relate to whether it's your relationship with your parents/siblings, acknowledging self awareness, love, religion, faith, pride, ahhh everything...

*I'm not saying that this movie was the greatest of all time - but it was refreshing to see such a well thought out and entertaining movie.
I'm not going to spell out the movie for everyone but I will say (2) things about it:

(1) I loved the storytelling of the Bengali man and woman moving to America and the adjustment to this new land and on the flip there was a progressive story of the couple's son and daughter adjusting to their parent's beliefs and values.
(2) It was great to see Kal Penn (Kumar of "Harold and Kumar") as a serious character in a movie.

I give "The Namesake" 6 pumps (that's the highest rating)

Check out the trailer and rent this movie :)
