A look inside Nike CEO Mark Parker's office

I've been lucky enough to visit Nike CEO Mark Parker's office, and it is F*CKING RAD. (yes, profanities most definitely necessary). Here are some images shot by Steve Bensity. You really gotta respect any coporate CEO with passions and interests for art, music, culture, and sports -- or at least I do! What was the kicker for me was the Sebastian Kruger portrait of Keith Richards behind Mark's desk. DROOL.

Me attempting to rap to Nicki Minaj "Super Bass"

I got bored, and for some reason thought it was a good idea to film myself whilst "rapping" to Nicki Minaj.

Hedi Slimane photographs Agyness Deyn

Hedi Slimane and Agyness Deyn: two of my favorite expressions of androgyny. Hedi's eye & Agyness's look -- I LOVE them. And you'd think that when you put the two together, you'd get something amazing, something that would make me spazz out because absolutely ROCKS. But I'm somewhat disappointed. Hedi photographed Agyness for the 8th issue of Man About Town, and it all seems a bit melodramatic. I was expecting better. It tries too hard. I still love their individual aesthetics, but I'm finding it's primarily out of principle that I'm posting these photos, not because I'm drooling. Because I'm not. But, I cant NOT post these. And fine, I guess these aren't THAT bad - I do really like them. I'm just surprised and I was hoping for a little more rock n' roll mystery, or edge, or maybe a little more glam & swagger. Not strung-out, overdramatic-yet-bland diva. Or am I finally getting tired of them? No, that cant be. It's just that I should be going bonkers over these, but I'm not for some reason.

Lady Gaga - Judas

judAAAAoooOOOAAAA! Ok, I'm definitely going to need to brush up on my religion because I really dont know what the hell is going on in this video. I have no clue who Judas is. (go ahead, judge me). Anyway, for the first time since I attended an Episcopalian grade-school, I feel the need to educate myself about religion. Gaga's doing this on purpose, isn't she? She's forcing all of us to stop and think about religion, and how religion fits into our society and/or our lives. Or am I taking her too seriously? Well, that's a given. I'm too tired to think right now, I just want to dance. Dance, monkey, dance.
