half staff day


when I passed IU’s ROTC center today I noticed the flag was at half staff. i couldn’t help but wonder if it was because of the death of fashion designer Alexander McQueen or Bill Clinton’s hospitalization

as google and twitter would tell me, a lot of women and gay men are very upset about McQueen’s alleged suicide. apparently he was responsible for some of the more interesting Lady Gaga fashion decisions. always sad when someone dies or takes their own life – RIP

and a speedy recovery to you Slick Willy. legends never die. true OG

david guetta/kid scudder FUCK ME I’M FAMOUS REMIX


you may recall yesterday when i talked about Cudi and Guetta’s “Memories” just being kind of boring and lifeless. i’ve never really felt the song – i know some people really like it, but “Memories” always seemed like a Starbucks version of the party starters of some of his contemporaries like Crookers, Diplo and so on.

having said that, his new refix of the track sounds like he’s been spending some time in Miami. he really breathes some life back into this song, and now it has a dark/party-starting monster living within it, not unlike Sayid on Lost

this one may yet make it into the Alcohol Consumption Playlist, but he still looks like a douche
