It’s the bryanboy blog that’s reminded me of that phrase.
To keep it real means to write about my acute pharyngitis. It stops me from going out anytime soon since my EENT doc tells me to stop smoking (not possible at this point, really). Useless to party with no drinks and stuff because it doesn’t go with sweet antibiotics.
I searched the Allegra shirt online and found it on shop something dot com for like the equivalent of 24 and 3 zero pesos in just S/M sizes in colors white and grey. But like only guys wear small tees and I’m not getting caught in one so skip it for now and come back for it later.
Hard to understand why my credit card company keeps increasing my credit limit ‘cos of “good credit standing”. They’re such assholes. Complained to my colleagues about this gimmick but one of them has got it worse. He’s received a card with a 1.2-M limit, no application needed and all he had in that bank was 20% of that amount. It’s like they want us to keep our purchases up until the “good credit standing” status stops working. It’s a bitch when they think they’re smarter than the consumers.
Israeli artist Orit Raff has got nice minimalist werkz. Totally worth my lurking around the net to kill time and stuff during office hours. One exhibit is here:
Seems to me that all roads lead to minimalism. Bland is the shit. The shit keeps things simple and “streetstyle” with too much color and too much going on all at once is dead. Daria is taking over Disneyland. I truly hope minimalism never applies to music. Even most minimalist art suxx and neo-dada is more moving. Gawd I h8 talking about art, like politics it’s such a drag. So drab.
I’m having a perfect day, it makes me bleed neon to the highest degree.
Not good to keep it real at times. Real is driving around with too many folks down the street who have no internet access anywhere. Real is doing a blog post at some wi-fi zoned café where I can’t get airport access for some reason. Real is doing a blog post at this café that’s out of chocolate cake. Real is doing a blog post with shaky hands ‘cos I only have 120pesos cash in my wallet. That's for no credit card payments which means no dinner (but coffee)‘til I get home. Real is realizing that maybe I’m stuck up. (I need a surgeon to do stitches on this neon overflow, stop the glow in the dark).
Okay, I’ll just go home now.

This Allegra shirt gives me the ooh ahhs again.
My wish-list gets long so fast:
- Chanel Gun Heels (but if I buy it and you see me wearing it, would you think I'm the monochromator? Would it blow my cover? I want to be ghost blogger for life but I also really want the shoes.)
- Belstaff Shoes by Kirkwood
- Stella McCartney S/S '09 Dress
- Rick Owens (Ankle Grazers) S/S '09 Shoes
- Rick Owens S/S '09 Dress
- Balmain S/S '09 Shoes
I won't get all of the above but I will get some and the list isn't done yet. Still have a lot of soul-searching to go through so gad hulp me.

I got ill... ill and sad. Slept for almost 2 days straight. Woke up and was itching to blog.
Was attracted to the steely blueish shadows about these photos.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A fag hag is a slang term for a woman who either associates mostly or exclusively with homosexual men, or is best or good friends with a gay man or men. It originated in gay male culture in the United States and was historically an insult. Some women who associate with gay men object to being called fag hags, while others embrace the term. The male counterpart, men who have similar interpersonal relationships with lesbian women, are called dyke tykes or Dutch boys; furthermore people who associate with gays, lesbians, and bisexuals may be called fruit flies,  regardless of their sex.

These belong to Eddie Boy Escudero.
He's what I'd call a scenestergrapher but he's also a weddingrapher. In general, he's just a great photographer. He's also kind of like a punksterrockerhippie and he understands ALTs that's why he takes the best party shutter.

It's nude on nude!
Lots of rib cut-out and asymmetrical detailing, the color orange (gah!) and blue in shades of faded denim are prominent. Combos of black-white design and material patterns are also easy to spot. But it's nude, to me, that screams loudest this Spring/Summer 2009.
(Could nude be the new black?)

I love blogging.
It's the random flow of ideas, the site-hopping 'til you reach the night's stop-and-write-it-down-already point. It's the flavor of them "monochromed" images... homogenous and satiating in their subdued form.
It's my latest fixation.
And these got abandoned for it -- swinging from one story to another -- all of them unfinished:
Attention span is scarce these days. Hold steady.
***Note: Hi, please don't click to look inside. It was just really nice to at least be able check if amazon has got the books I'm trying to read. The covers look neat and I buy them in stacks from bookstores all the time.
