break —

hi followers -

I leave tomorrow for wider skies and will be taking a break from this facet of my internet presence. Other facets will still be around; if you want to find me, I think you’ll figure out how.

Wishing you all peace in the new year.

xo, E

CultureDANCE: Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

In flight.

the thing I love about the Alvin Ailey Dance Company is that as soon as you see these shots you know immediately that these dancers are Alvin Ailey dancers just because of the beautiful composition and lines and flexibility and (most importantly) the fact that there are this many Black dancers in one company just sayin’.

beyonce is making the face adults make when they “lose” a game to a child

“When I was in Europe I would play this game for hours and hours… it helped me zone out. Everybody would get envolved… Derrick Dudley (Common’s manager) and Consequence were the best other than me… I beat Lexi… Don C beat Jay… Tony Williams beat Common… but every now and then people would speak of this legendary connect 4 champion……….. BEYONCÉ!!! I had 2 play her!…
So last night at Jay’s new 40/40 club in Las Vegas (which is sidebar, candy canes big w/ 24krt gold flooring, Black Jack tables, $500 slot machines,the biggest projection screen in the universe and the best turkey burgers I’ve ever had in my life) she beat me 9 times in a row! (and I didn’t even spaz lol) here’s a photo of the only game I won!” - Kanye’s old blog
