hot mess

i came upon these works by artist alicia ross from her current exhibit 'hot mess'. she finds photos online of some the 'tabloid's favorite females', does a phrenology study, and then does a cross-stitch of their portrait. the results are rather stunning. plus, i'm partial to an artist who uses 'unconventional' methods and pays an excruciating amount to detail. the exhibit is on view now through november 21 at black & white gallery in nyc. here are a few of my favorites...

jenna jameson

for colored girls

i can't wait to see this! based on the play "for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf" by ntozake shange, directed by tyler perry. with thandie newton, anika noni rose, kerry washington, loretta devine, janet jackson (who looks bomb), whoopi goldberg, and...get ready for it...phylicia rashad (my head explodes).

enuf' said.

grover has always been my favorite


where to begin?

i've been thinking about starting a blog for some time now. mostly to share my thoughts and findings with friends. this may wind up only being for friends. this may wind up only being for me. we shall see. most of what i plan on posting will be random things i find on the internet that i think are worth mentioning. hence the title, for honorable mention. each day i find something new, whether it be an article, song, review, quote, odd site i 'stumble upon', i plan on sharing it with you. i may not be the most eloquent writer, but i imagine sometimes i may decide to share my point of view as well. this really has no set formula or rules, it's really just going to be...stuff.
