Fleet Week is Here!

So i just finished watching a SATC rerun of the “Anchors Away” episode which was on tonight and it reminded me that it is officially the beginning of Fleet Week here in NYC. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Fleet Week, i’ll give you a brief rundown.It began in 1984, specifically to honor those in the U.S Navy and Marine Corps. During this week, there are so many events and public tours where you can visit the ships near the Piers and Harbor. Us ladies love Fleet Week because I mean who doesn’t like seeing a man in uniform 😉 . This week is perfect to check out some of the events that are going on for fleet week since Memorial day is also this weekend and we cant forget the most anticipated and awaited movie of the summer, Sex and the City 2 !! So go out and enjoy all the fun things the Big Apple has to offer, the weather will be beautiful, heard we are expecting temperatures in the 90s. And who knows, you might just find yourself swooned by a sexy Sailor!

Lauryn Hill Headlining Rock the Bells 2010

She’s been gone for a minute, but now URB has announced that she will be headlining the Rock the Bells tour 2010. How did Guerilla Union do it? Anywho, Being the main act, she’ll most likely be performing The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill which is one of my favorite albums of all time. I really hope her voice is still in tact because I’d definitely love to see her live.

UPDATE: According to founder of Rock the Bells, Chang Weisberg, he mentioned in his press conference yesterday that he & his camp did reach out to Lauryn Hill, but it wasn’t fully through. *sigh* We could all hope right? But what was definitely confirmed was that the rest of the artists will be performing their classics.

Short of the Week- Five Feet High & Rising

A short by Peter Sollet which was the winner of the Short Filmmaking Award at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival. If you haven’t seen Raising Victor Vargas, this was the backdrop for that movie. Its the story of a 12 yr old boy named Victor who is growing up in the Lower East Side and going through different experiences.  You may recognize Victor because he stars in the recent HBO show “How to Make it in America.” as Cameron “Cam” Calderon.  They also just picked up Season 2, which I definitely will be watching!

Zac Posen for Target

Today is the release of Zac Posen’s collection for Target. As expected, many of the favorite items are sold out online and some Target stores only carry a few pieces. I managed to score the Tuxedo Jacket which Dakota Fanning has been seen wearing, and the Yellow Rain Coat that i thought would be awesome for the Spring Season.  Check out some of the Items at Target.com  or visit your nearest Target store to get some Goods!

RIP Guru

Keith Elam – Guru (July 17, 1961 – April 19, 2010)

Thank you for the music you gave us, Gangstarr will forever be the epitome of Hip Hop.  No more Mr. Nice Guy, Step In the Arena, Daily Operation, Hard To Earn, Moment of Truth, & The Ownerz, speak for itself when you listen to one of the best duos Hip Hop has ever heard. A visionary and emcee with genuine rhymes who had a distinct monotone style, graced us with the Jazzmatazz Volumes that mixed the sounds of Jazz and Hip Hop that had never been done before.  You will always be remembered and cherished in my heart for showing us how beautiful Hip Hop is. Thank you  for being Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal!
