the white lighter

Admittedly, this blog and its maintainer have eclectic tastes. "Eclectic," as you might suspect, is a nice way of saying that there is very little intertwining theme to any of this. If you end up liking some (or most) of the things I like, you might find that wondrous.

I seek to post only items which are credited to the originator, be it fine art, photography, tattoos, or writing. If you see something uncredited, do feel free to point it out to me. Also: ask anything. Call me out if I fuck up. Give props if you feel like it. Ask questions. I like internet interaction.

PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THIS:

People of Brooklyn and the greater NYC area, and anywhere with a punk/ DIY community - PLEASE TAKE CARE. This man, going by the name of Shameus (Seamus) Greymountain, is a dangerous and unrepentant rapist and manipulator, and he has recently relocated…

This Day In Music History

Lauryn Hill, hip-hop and R&B diva, won five Grammy Awards-the most ever by a woman-on this date February 24, 1999. Hill, whose debut solo album was entitled “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” received ten awards nominations.

Listened to this at the cafe today and it was GLOR-I-OUS.

Classic Interview: 

Sharon Jones is no stranger to struggle, be it familial, financial, or professional. However, at 54 years old, the soul singer is unfazed by the task of rehashing some of her difficult life lessons. “Struggle should make you a better person. I don’t want to become a nasty person; I don’t want to do something evil,” she says. Not that anyone who heard her music would expect Jones’ warmhearted outlook to translate to wilting flower. “I’m not biting my tongue. I’m not going to have someone talk to me or mistreat me in any way. I’ve taken enough crap. I’ve learned the hard way!” she says with a laugh, referencing the title of her fourth album, I Learned the Hard Way. (via Sharon Jones: Life Lessons | Under The Radar)

Yasiin Bey Talks Style, Hip-Hop, Name Change With GQ

A Mos by Any Other Name…
“I began to fear that Mos Def was being treated as a product, not a person, so I’ve been going by Yasiin since ‘99. At first it was just for friends and family, but now I’m declaring it openly.”

Paying Homage
“When my paternal grandfather passed a few years back, I started to wear a shirt and tie every day, like he did. Michael Jackson’s death had a big impact on me, too. Right before the Ecstatic tour in 2009, I began wearing loafers and high-waisted pants. And that’s where my look started.”

Honest Goods
“Hip-hop is the last true folk art. I got involved with Ale et Ange because it represents hip-hop in a way that isn’t pandering. It’s nice to see something that’s elegant, skillful, and raw.”

Power Suits
“With guys I revere, like Marcus Garvey or Malcolm X, their look is less about style than purpose and the expression of beauty. It wasn’t just about being noticed, you know?”

Mix-n-Sorta-Match
“I like drawing connections between pieces and patterns that would make someone else think, ‘Those two things would never go together.’ Well, to me they do.”

So Fresh, So Clean
“I don’t have advice for people on how to dress. People should dress based on what they find beautiful. My best advice: Keep your clothes clean.
