Daily Rotation: Gordon Voidwell

26 Feb

 

Courtesy of the Cantora Records website:

“William Gordon Johnson (1983 – ), well known by his pen name Gordon Voidwell, is a Bronx-born singer, songwriter, musician and fashion writer. He is noted for his mixtape Voided Checks (2009), which has been called “electro-fantastic…hip-hop-esque [and] yacht-rockin.”

Voidwell’s keen wit, incisive satire and undeniable danceability has earned him praise from critics and peers alike. A friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty, Gordon is extensively grooved to, fucked to and listened to on the train.

Inspired by Talking Heads, The Rah Band and Marz, Voidwell’s new single Ivy League Circus teems with recession-era energy for those who are bullish on beats and bearish on modesty.

He is NOT from Brooklyn.”

In case, we were hopeful, I suppose.

 

Design Line: Honeysuckle Pink

26 Feb

I’ve always believed in the power of pink. Now, of course there’s some unflattering connotations (Pepto, carnations-instead-of-roses, girlhood frills), but there’s something infinitely charming about this classically pretty color, Honeysuckle. It calls to mind French boudoirs, lipstick stains, and Audrey Hepburn’s dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

In the spirit of spring revival, I’ve compiled a list of home decor and accessories as an homage to this year’s Color of the Year. With pinks, a pop is best, balanced with neutrality. Combinations tried and true: Pink with Gray, Brown, Taupe, Black.

Design Line: Spring Blues

26 Feb


Blue Curacao is Spring 2011’s whimsical take on turquoise. Seen on the runway by the likes of Peter Som, DKNY, and Versace, this shade’s versatility is perfect for welcoming spring. Evoke lazing in the Caribbean tropics or spice  up earthy tones with patterned, worldly prints.

Keeping up with color trends in your wardrobe might seem mandatory, but accenting your home with goodies has the same spring awakening effect.

Look out for my next installment of Design Line Budget Edition, when we tackle another spring staple , and Color of 2011,  Honeysuckle Pink.

I’ve compiled this  list of 15 of my favorites for sprucing up your digs for less than $100:

Feminista: Oh Hail No!

To sign an OPEN LETTER TO CONGRESS.

Did you hear? The House voted to bar Planned Parenthood from federal funding. They cut funding for HIV tests, cancer screenings, birth control, and more, putting millions of women and families at risk. We can’t let it go unanswered. It’s time for you and me to stand with Planned Parenthood. Sign the open letter to the reps who voted for this bill — and to the senators who still have a chance to stop it.

It’s 2011 and still leaders are afraid of women determining their own choices and accessing reproductive health care. This is INTIMATE, PRIVATE, and our HUMAN RIGHT.

For women, like myself, who are NOT covered by health insurance, Planned Parenthood provides a crucial service.

SIGN THE PETITION!
