BoNkErS.................A Great Cartoon That Just Went Too Early...sob..

Every now and then, I think about what today's kids are missing......and I think back to a childhood of playing tag, man-hunt and cartoons that were....funny...anyway, heeeeeere's BONKERS!

MCM..........Don't Call It A Comeback

During its eighties heyday, MCM's logo-branded merch had a Vuitton-like appeal, at least among rappers, many of whom wore bootleg clothing emblazoned with the symbol (Eric B and Just-Ice come to mind). MCM lost its cachet here during the late nineties and early 2000s, but after a series of recent store launches in Asia (and a restoration of hip-hop's favor), it's poised for a comeback....even though I ask you not to call it that...

Fashon Alert...................Vein Wear.....I Got Nothing (Sorry)...

I usually come up with something catchy or whimsy in order to introduce a brand, but when they do such a great job........who am I to mess with genius? Words taken Directly from their website:

"The term “designer” is often
used loosely in the shoes, mens shoes, mens fashion industry, and certainly so by a
number of factories mass
producing male footwear that
copy the fashion leaders.
Vein does it differently. How
you’d expect true designer shoes to be created for you.
Each original design is sketched,
first as a conceptual, and then
worked and re-worked into final
drawings with graphite on paper.
Then, prototype dress shoes are
meticulously crafted. Drawn by
hand, made by hand."

Now that's creative.....enjoy!

JCVD..................A Movie You WANT To See.......Trust Me!

So last night, Bev sends me the link for a very interesting movie trailer starring the "Muscles from Brussels" himself, Jean-Claude Van Damme.....As you know, we love creativity and this movie screams of it....The funny thing is that it's already out (no marketing though)...It was screened at the 2008 Rome Film Festival (L'Altro Cinema) and the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival (Midnight Madness) and I think it's definately a good look for JCVD.....enjoy the trailer!

Correction- ABC

As you all know, LuckysinLove embraces individuality, and nothing screams that more than THINKING (which seems to be a rare art)....Raquel Carter, a great thinker in my opinion has agreed to share her thoughts with LuckysinLove. I'm always impressed with the diversity of her thoughts.....enjoy!

"In recent news a broadcaster who was summarizing the election on ABC news stated the massive amount of emails that Obama's team had produced, as well as pages on facebook, and myspace that have accumulated millions of supporters and fans. They used all of this information to surmize that Obama won directly because "more people are using the internet". Well, ABC... Im quite sure that McCain had the same opportunity to publicize his candidacy. Being a democratic network, I was surprized to hear such a statement coming from ABC. Due to the syntax and overall story, it was said with no means of harm or bias. However, you can't just allow misinformation floating around about the correlation between "internet users" to the winning of government officials in a Presidential election, thats just absurd! Would it be fair to say that McCain lost then, because he doesnt know how to use a compter? No! So why would Obama swin soley on the amount of internet users? Did McCain not have the same opportunity? The same internet users that voted last election, and with continue voting the next.

Anyhoo... those are my two cents."
