Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2008 is called "Moon Beach" - picture a sci-fi dream of a fin de siècle summer in Biarritz and you're somewhere close to its distinctive blend of high tech and soft touch. Personally I think LV's collection presents the best shoes collection ever. As Tim Blank said "In a season of sandals, Vuitton has the sandals of the season."
Chad White kicked off Paris fashion week with the show of two outrageous designers, Jean Paul Gaultier and John Galliano. What surprise me is that JPG's clothes looked tame and more wearable when compare to Mr. Galliano's.
Beside marrying David Beckham and being filthy rich, Victoria Beckham is going to have the coolest closet in the world (which makes all the Gays want to go back in.) According to InTouch magazine, she has designed a $500,000 closet for her new L.A. home. The space features a leather floor, Baccarat crystal chandelier, $80,000 Andy Warhol shoe print, a computer that tracks when she wears items of clothing and a camera to give her a 360-degree view “cat scan” of her outfit.

Finally, my dream comes true. This Spring/Summer 2008 collections, Milan's designers show off their menswear which look a lot like womenwear or vice versa. The line between two genders is getting smaller and smaller. (Alessandro Dell'Acqua, Burberry Prorsum, Dries Van Noten, Emporio Armani, Fendi)
While I was out partying for Pride weekend, Menswear Spring/Summer 2008 collections were kicked off in Milan. This time I decide not to report on each designer but better on the models. Starting with my boyfriend - Chad White. (Dsquared, Salvatore Ferragamo, Bottega Veneta, Dolce & Gabbana)
I still don't know where to go tonight, can you believe that ? First, my friends and I will go to "Colossus" because we love DJ. Brett Henrichsen and DJ. Alexander. Then, we asked around and found out that many people will go to "Queen" - at Pier27. Oh boy, big dilemma...
The RD4 (Roughly Drawn) Chair is an instantly iconic design hand-woven in 100% recycled plastic waste material, with no two chairs being exactly alike. The RD4 Chair is a tour de force piece heralding the future of sustainable design, and makes a striking visual statement uniquely its own. Much stronger than its airy openness might imply, the inherent flexibility of its plastic construction allows for it to naturally respond to the weight of an occupant. It's available for $1,198 in five colors: Black, Blue, Green, Orange, and Red (slight color variation is natural.)
After Meredith Vieira left "The View", I was very sad and thinking about stop watching the show, until Ms. Rosie came along. I have to admit that I didn't agree with everything she said but we need somebody who's outspoken for our community. It was good to see her discuss "Gay Rights" on the morning show. After Ms. Rosie left the show from fighting with that irritating right-wing Elizabeth, I deleted the show from my TiVo's program. Now, there is a rumor that it may be a "gay guy" to replace Rosie, either the comedian - Mario Cantone or the intern - Ross Mathews. Just hope that some day they will fire that annoying blond.
Today is solstice day which occurs twice a year, whenever Earth's axis tilts the most toward or away from the Sun, causing the Sun to be farthest north or south at noon. The name is derived from Latin sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still), because at the solstice, the Sun stands still in declination, that is, its movement north or south is minimal. In the Northern hemisphere, the period around the June solstice is known as midsummer, and Midsummer's Day is 24 June, three or four days after the solstice itself. SOURCE
Hermès celebrates its 70 years by holding an exhibition called "Once upon a Silk", from June 29 through July 8, 2007 in Hong Kong. Poetic in nature, it reflects the dreamlike journey the Hermès scarves have inspired since 1937. At Hermès’ request, the great stage designer Hilton McConnico has searched through the Hermès treasure chest of scarves in order to create an imaginative voyage of discovery where every scarf tells its story.

IKEA won the top honor at the Commercial Closet Association awards, celebrating the best gay-friendly ad campaigns in mainstream print, broadcast, and Internet media. The winning spot was IKEA’s “Living Room” ad with a gay couple resting on the floor with their daughter and dog. The narrator asks, "Why shouldn't sofas come in flavors, just like families?"

In 1994,the US Army planned to arm itself with "gay bombs" that would turn enemies into uncontrollable homosexuals. The enemies would left helpless by mass gay orgies, as soldiers were irresistibly attracted to one another. The documents indicate the project titled "Harassing, Annoying and 'Bad Guy' Identifying Chemicals" would have cost at least $7.5 million. From my experience; just throw in some dance music and XTC - you can create one big "orgy". SOURCE
Coca-cola once contained cocaine. Coca-cola was introduced in 1886 as "a valuable brain-tonic and cure for all nervous afflictions". Coca-cola was promoted as a temperance drink "offering the virtues of coca without the vices of alcohol". Until 1903, a typical serving contained around 60mg of cocaine. Sold today, it still contains an extract of coca-leaves. The Coca-Cola Company imports eight tons from South America each year. Nowadays the leaves are used only for flavouring since the drug has been removed.
