Blake Lewis - Break Anotha

This is the new release by season 6 finalist Blake Lewis called "Break Anotha". Even though I don't "feel" this song I'm sure it will be have a very successful radio play. But I don't think it will compare to Daughtry. Or even with Jordan Sparks debut CD.

OneRepublic - Apologize

Here is the original version of "Apologize" by One Republic. I enjoy this version as well. But I still think I like Timbarland's remix version. I wonder if people would have such a hard time excepting this song if only it was titled One Repubic feat. Timbaland - Apologize. While I do think he should have giving them more credit (like putting their name first) people would have to admit that he did interduce them to a whole other group of listeners. Take me for instance before I heard the Timbaland version I never even heard of them.

Adina Howard - Freak Like Me (1995)

I remember when this song was out. Listening to it now means a lot of different things to me. I can really relate to some of the things she says "It's all about the Dog in Me"...

Jennifer Lopez - Brave

As I was out at the club this weekend the DJ played this new track by Jennifer Lopez. As soon as I heard it I fell in love with it (this is not the club mix of it though). I'm really excited about the release of this new CD.

Timbaland Apologize

I've discovered this song while I was in spin class and fell in love with it. It's a great song and the video is amazing. I wish I could say more about it but since I don't really listen to rap I'm not sure how I will like the entire album but I hope you all enjoy this song as much as I do. It brings up some strange feelings in me (and I'm not talking sexual more of hope)

Call on Me

I love this song and this video is so funny. Strange though I never see these many hot guys in the group exercises classes when I take them, oh well I must be going to the wrong gym (or maybe at the wrong time)

Gimme More - Remix

Even though this is just a clip I must say this video is a lot better then the original Britney Video but I'll let you be the judge of that.

New blog discovered

Hello everyone I just wanted to let you all know about a AMAZING blog I just discovered the other day by accident. The funny part about this is that the person who writes this blog is also a fellow Chicagoan. The blog is troystopher and it's written very well. As I was going through his past post I found myself unable to stop reading them (especially his surprise coming out event). Once you read it you're understand, let's just say that if I was in his situation I would have had a heart attack. But go and check it out you'll really enjoy it.

Chicago Marathon

This past weekend had a lot of action going on in Chicago starting with the Cubs being swept by the Arizona Diamond Backs (sorry Justin) to the running of the Chicago Marathon. This year the weather was extremly warm for a marathon (upper 80's) because of this race officials canceled the race after the top winners have already won. I must admit watching this was very exciting. On my way back from the gym in the morning the race route goes through my neighborhood and I could not cross the street to get back to my apartment. I took a few interesting snap shots of the runners as they were going past. After 20 min of waiting I decided to "cut" between the runners to get hom (don't worry they were not running by that time). After I got home I watched the rest of the marathon on TV and it was a very exciting ending for both the Male and Female 1st place finish. I just might try to see if I can get a few friends together to compete in next years race.

It's been said that what Britney Spears needs is some tough love and it appears as though Tyra Banks is the only person that is willing to give it to her.

Fashion



While women make just as many questionable style choices (tight jeans with muffin tops, anyone?) as men, there’s not as much help out there for guys who are innocently undermining their look. Although many fashion slips apply equally to both sexes, there are several that are very male-specific. Since it’s true that people’s first impression of us is often based on appearance, we decided to spend some time browsing workplaces, stores, cafes, and bars to uncover the most common fashion mistakes men make and let you in on how to avoid them and improve your personal presentation.

Read on to make sure you’re not committing any of these fashion crimes and find out how to correct your fashion faux pas if you recognize yourself in any one of these blunders.


French cuffs without cuff links
Since it’s not necessary to wear most dress shirts with cuff links, many men seem to be unaware that shirts with French cuffs actually do need to be accompanied by cuff links. Essentially, French cuffs without cuff links are like a Playboy without the centerfold. If you have a shirt with French cuffs, cuff links are really the icing on the cake and will enhance your appearance by making you seem more presentable and smartly turned out. As well, since French-cuffed shirts are generally worn on more formal occasions, or at least in a business environment, the purpose of wearing such a shirt is to look polished -- a feat that is hard to accomplish when your sleeves are flapping about.

For those times when you need to dress like a gentleman or want to make an elegant style statement, French cuffs with some sweet cuff links peeking out from under the sleeve of your blazer are the way to go. And while it’s true that in recent years some very famous celebs have been spotted sporting French cuffs sans cuff links, unless you’re Brad Pitt, you just won’t be able to get away with that in real life since everyone will just assume you don’t know how to dress yourself.


Make your own suit
Creating your own suit refers to purchasing pants and jackets as separates, and then combining them with little regard for whether the two items can actually be worn together or not. Just because both your jacket and pants are black, it does not mean they belong together. Fabric, cut and hue variations all play a huge role in determining whether or not two separately purchased items will complement each other. A wool blazer, for instance, will look terrible and cheap when paired with polyester dress pants and vice versa. If you’re going to wear a suit, please make sure you bought the pieces as a set or you run the risk of seeming slightly ridiculous.



Sneakers with everything
Before you get angry and start leaving nasty comments, let me explain what I mean: While wearing uber-cool sneakers with a suit can be hip and very attractive, it’s not OK to refuse to remove your sneakers and insist that they go with everything you own. They don’t, and there are certainly times when a dressier look is called for and even preferred over something funkier. Plus, it’s a little boring to wear the same thing over and over. Part of having personal style is to mix things up occasionally and show others you can successfully work a variety of looks. Of course, it’s not necessary to own as many pairs of shoes as most girls do, but you should own more than a couple of pairs of sneakers, and you should certainly own at least one pair of dress shoes. You’ll need them for formal occasions or even for frequenting more upscale bars and clubs where a dress code is reinforced.

Too much hair product
Though others have condemned it before, this crime against fashion is such a frequent and heinous one that it bears repeated mentioning. Using too much of any kind of product in your hair results in gunky hair, and no girl wants to run her hands through a head full of gel. Think about it: If the situation were reversed, you most certainly wouldn’t want to have stiff, crunchy or gooey locks between your hands. Both sexes prefer soft, touchable hair, so find a way to make your style work without winding up with helmet head.

In addition, it’s really not healthy for your hair to be doused in hundreds of chemicals on a daily basis, so lighten up. For gels and conditioners, you really only need a dime-size amount for your entire head. Use no more than a large marble-size amount of mousse and when it comes to hairspray, hold the can a good five inches from your tresses, making sure to mist only very lightly. Putties and waxes should also be used very sparingly in order to avoid a flattened, greasy look. If you’re really at a loss on how to style your hair without half a bottle of product, ask your stylist to show you next time you go in for a hair cut.




faux pas

Everyone makes a fashion misstep every now and again, but the mistakes outlined above occur all too frequently and can easily be avoided. By following the simple steps suggested here and making minor tweaks to your wardrobe, your whole look will get a subtle improvement. Stay tuned for Part II of this series to ensure you’ve eliminated all possible fashion atrocities from your wardrobe and grooming cabinet.

Westlife- Total Eclipse of the Heart (Live)

This is a pretty good cover of Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclips of the Heart" performed by Westlife. These Irish boys really did this version justice I believe. Let me know what you think about it.

'I Care 4 U' by AALIYAH

I was just going through some of my previous "favorite" youtube videos and I happened to come across this one. This is one of my favorite songs by the late Aalyah and this video (even though it's not made by the record company) I think it a great example of showing a young person in hollywood that di dnot get caught up in the glitz and glamor and who's life was cut short in her prime.

Movie Release Tuesday

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

The comic book sequel re teams Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis and Chris Evans as the foursome who gained superpowers from cosmic radiation, this time joining forces with their evil mutant foe to stop an emissary of Earth's destruction. Extras include commentary with director Tim Story, producer Avi Arad and some of their collaborators. The two-disk and Bluray releases also have deleted and extended scenes with commentary from Story, along with featurettes on the Fantastic Four's slick new flying car and the comic book history of Fishburne's Silver Surfer character.


1408

John Cusack stars in the horror hit about a skeptic whose career as a debunker of paranormal phenomena takes a turn into terror when he checks into a New York City hotel room where 57 deaths have occurred over the years. Samuel L. Jackson co-stars in a small but memorable role as the hotel manager who discourages Cusack from staying there. The movie comes in a single0disk edition with the theatrical cut or in a two0disk set with both the theatrical version and filmmaker Mikael Hafstroms's extended director's cut, which includes an alternate ending. The two-disc set also has deleted scenes and a batch of postcards for the hotel where Cusack's character stays.
