Looks like the first round Beyonce won by the video...

Quote of the Day

"I haven't got much time to waste
It's time to make my way
I'm not afraid I'll face
But I'm afraid to stay
I'm going down my own road
And I can make it alone
All work and no fighting
I'll find a place of my own"

Look like my favorite designer of the moment, Alexander McQueen, doesn't sleep. He recently designed a set of exclusive luggage for Samsonite. Last week he unveiled the center piece of the 11 piece collection which was a rolling suitcase made from molded plastic in the shape of a human rib cage. The luggage zippers are embossed with a mould of McQueen's thumbprint. The luggage and travel accessories should be in stores by February 2007.

Design for All

Target announced that it will collaborate with fashion designers Proenza Schouler and Behnaz Sarafpour to produced limited designer collections. Proenza Schouler designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez expressed concern about the experiment believing that in the long run an association with the mass retailer can do irreversible harm to the brand, however, in the short term having one's name in places it normally would not appear is an amazing free ride.

Help Mike Jones

The blogger - Joe.My.God. - suggest the donation to help Mike Jones, male escort who exposed the Evangelical leader Ted Haggard for being hypocrite against Gay marriage but he actually having gay sex once a month with Mike Jones. Some doesn't agree with Mike said he broke the escort's ethic for exposed the clients (what eves), some said he's a hero. Whatever you think...this is a free country. This may be the reason Democrats took control over both House and Senate from this past election.

Closet Gay Catholics

Yesterday U.S. Catholic bishops announced that it's not sinful to be Gay as long as they remain celibate and they should not tell anybody other than close friends and family about them. WTF...It's like "Don't ask, don't tell" policy. I don't know whether I should be happy that this may be the first step to be accepted from the church or be upset that the church is manipulating some info to protect their priests.
