Huck/Little White Lies Split Cover Illustration

Magculture turns us onto the news of Huck and Little White Lies split cover. The magazines, which are both published by The Church of London, have teamed up to celebrate Spike Jonze’s much hyped new film release. Whilst Spike Jonze’s new film has captured the zeitgeist (or at least the trendsetter zeitgeist).

Gucci’s resort collection is now available for purchase, ladies and gentlemen. I know it's getting closer and closer to winter, but it's time to stock up now so shit won't be sold out when it's time to rock all the Gucci that you've got.

Also, for you iPhone owners, Gucci recently released it's iPhone application.

Gucci recently announced the Gucci iApp for iPhone and iPod touch, which is now available from the App Store. The app synthesizes the worlds of fashion, technology and music offering Gucci enthusiasts access to exclusive Gucci products, unique playlists, videos, fashion shows, news, events, latest collections, store listings and the ability to mix their own music. The rich content on the app was developed specifically with the profile of the Gucci loyalist in mind and delivers a new way to experience the varied world of the Gucci lifestyle. The launch of the Gucci App has been timed to coincide with the itinerant GUCCI ICON-TEMPORARY project, a travelling sneaker store that opens on October 24th at 43 Crosby Street in New York, before moving to Miami on December 1st, and then to London and Tokyo in Spring 2010.

Uniqlo Patchwork Flannel Check Shirt

Here’s another choice pick from Uniqlo. They’ve been the style bloggers secret weapon for eons now – we can’t think of any other high street brand who get namchecked in Monocle and has their own Supertalk thread – and pieces like this prove why they’ve retained that status. Patchwork shirts have a definite marmite effect on people; you either love it, hate it or hate that you love it.

I personally love these shirts and at the price of £14.99, I don't see why anybody would pass up the deal. I just gotta cop mine before they sell out. Since I'm in Chicago, I gotta go online to get me one.

"B-Side" by Ken&Dana: Autumn/Winter’09 Accessories

Maybe I think the necklaces and things are nice. Maybe I just really like the model. Either way these pics are doing it for me. More online at their site.

J. Cole: "World Is Empty"

By now, the rest of the world should have caught up with J. Cole (either from listening to him spit on "BP3" or from knowing of him as the 1st signee to Jay Z's RocNation). Well this is my favorite track off oh his 2nd mixtape, "The Warm Up", his follow=up to the acclaimed "Come Up" mixtape.

This cat is iTunes worthy by all means. For now, I put his rookie skills somewhere between when I first heard mixtape Lupe and early Drake (circa, 2007). I can't wait to see what dude has in store in the future. I just hope his commercial growth won't inspire me to stop being as big of a fan- like I usually do when rappers get too mainstream.

Btw, if anybody knows the track he sampled, please let me know so I can get the original.

Featuring brands like Brian Lichtenberg, Cheap Monday, Costume Dept. and many more with a few shots cameoed by Chester French, this lookbook gives the proper message for the fly girl this fall/winter: party time MUST look good. The full lookbook is on Karmaloop.

Curb Your Enthusiasm: "Black Swan" (Nov. 1, 2009)

Since "The Wire" is no longer in production and "The Boondocks" are constantly being postponed with the release of their 3rd season, I've come to find a new favorite TV show; "Curb Your Enthusiasm" has won the award with "Bored To Death" (starring Jason Schwartzman) winning a close 2nd. It's the Sunday night comedy block on HBO and I must say, this shit is hilarious. While "Curb" has been on for years now, "Bored To Death" is in its 1st season- both deserve Emmy awards.

Here's the latest episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm", "Black Swan"

This show is INSANELY Jewish. So most of you guys should know that it wasn't hard to like it. I LOVE Jews!!!

Nike SB “Skate Mental” Dunk Hi

Making their way towards another run at the top this season, Nike SB partner up with Skate Mental on a second sneaker design, this time utilizing the classic Dunk Hi. The shoes are given a mostly Brown suede finish with White and Light Blue accents. Now available for pre-order through CCS.

Stussy iPhone Protector

These days it seems like everybody has an iPhone or iPod Touch.... except me LOL. I lack both right now but there have been hella brands making protective covers for the iPhone. The latest of which comes from my favorite streetwear brand Stussy. If I had the iPhone, I would definitely cop.

If you have one, and you're thinking about copping, it's available now from In4mation.

Love Jones: "A Blues For Nina (Brotha To The Night)"

This is like my Number 2 favorite movie of all time (only after of "City Og God")....

Consequence: "Whatever You Want" (feat. John Legend & Kanye West)

I'm pretty sure Kanye made this beat... I just get that feeling. But if not, whoever did, he made a decent "Kanye beat"....

Here's what The Fader had to say:

"Alright, let’s say you’re Consequence. You’re the ultimate G.O.O.D. team player, you happily give Kanye your best lyrics, you never complain when you’re own album gets little support and you never blow up any spots that aren’t meant to be blown. At least that’s how it will be as long as Kanye, John and Hype continue to fly you down to Miami to shoot consumer cam videos with megababes. And free drinks."

(Duly noted. I agree.)

Astrud Gilberto: "The Girl From Ipanema"

I'm so in love with this track. This song is from the 1964 album "Getz/Gilberto" by Stan Getz & João Gilberto. The music video is from the 1964 film "Get Yourself a College Girl".... Though I've never seen the flick, I was told that the music video is like an actual scene from the movie.... Now I got a few ideas!!! LOL

Vitalic: "Poison Lips"

"The return of Vitalic also apparently means the return of sleazy dance music. Granted, it hasn’t been as long as it feels since the Ed Banger crew dominated the booze-soaked crusty electronic circuit, but there’s something somehow fresh about this song. Maybe it’s the way Vitalic’s galloping synths are paired with those airy vocals, like you know listening to this song is a bad idea but you just can’t stop. Basically it looks like we’re saying this is drug music for dirty old men, and despite the weird/gross connotations that brings, it’s actually a pretty awesome niche to reside in. Watch the video up above to see a bunch of expressionless women smear lipstick on each other."~ The Fader

Junya Watanabe x Pendleton Fall/Winter 2009 Shirts

Perfectly fitting the Fall/Winter 2009 hunting and fishing inspired collection, Japanese designer Junya Watanabe worked with Pendleton on some shirts for this season. Using similar patching techniques and materials, the shirts turned out very interesting. Leather and corduroy patches are placed on the plaid wool by Pendleton, making each piece stand out of the crowd. These are certainly not your standard plaid shirts, unfortunately you can also expect according pricing.

50 Cent Rushed To Hospital After Listening To Fat Joe

This afternoon while in his Manhattan offices, employees say that 50 Cent was listening to Fat Joe's new album, "J.O.S.E. 2" when all the sudden, he collapsed! An ambulance was called, and by the time they arrived, 50 Cent regained consciousness and was complaining of blurred vision and a severe migraine. 50 Cent was rushed to Mt. Sinai hospital at 4:26 pm.

Doctors say after performing a Cat Scan and EKG there seems to be some damage to his auditory cortex, which is the region of the brain that is responsible for processing sound.

Levi Strauss and Ace Hotels Collaborate on Suite 501

LA Times checks in with a piece on ACE Hotel’s “suite” work with Cali’s own Levi Strauss. “Suite 501″ is exactly what you would imagine it would be – a denim decorated room in the spirit of the Levi’s 501. “A mock-up of the room was on display in a ’20s era house just off Sunset Boulevard in the shadow of the Chateau Marmont on Thursday, a former residence on Selma Avenue that a few months ago became the new home of Levi’s VIP space/entertainment industry networking hub, headed by Sheri Timmons, director of engagement marketing for Levi’s who worked with Ace owner Alex Calderwood on the project.” Marketing works.

M.O.B. Pantie Raid!

Exclusively at as a part of MTTM's 5th Anniversary Celebration, a 5-pak of panties have been released with the sigature snooty, famale-empowering phrases that MTTM is known for.

Bt mentioning panty raids reminds me of the joys of being in college: mischief and decadence. If you all haven't seen "Animal House" by now, do it ASAP!! Here's the trailer to the movie which opened the door to the college humor sub-genre of comedy.

Oh yeah... It's the weekend!!!! Let's get it!!
