CALLING ALL: Fashion Forward Individuals. Welcome to GFC Academy, where you will not learn how to be stylish but instead understand and interpret it. The three textbooks you will need for class today are: The Supermodern Wardrobe, Brand. New, and Black Style. These three texts offer introspective looks at fashion in urban environments, consumer culture of fashion and design, and how politics and cultural exchange have affected the ever evolving fashions of Black people. These three works will be the guiding force for our exploration into new and innovative perspectives on fashion--the culture, the art, and the business. See you next class, and don't forget to bring your books.
For all you ultimate hustler types, who can never seem to leave the office there's a solution: it's in your pocket. The Flybook is a beautiful contradiction; it has tons of power without all the weight. Its about 235 x 155 x 31 mm in size, the screen is about 8.5 in. and it serves as a fully functioning computer. It also has all the latest multimedia and telecommunications technology that you'll need on the go. With a rotating touch sensitive screen it transforms from a notebook to a Tablet PC. If only Screech had this, he would be as cool as us. The Flybook won't let you miss a beat and you can best believe this will not cure your A-D-D!
'Exquisite', (so much that my words are keeling over) is the word that comes to mind when eyes meet Louis Vuitton's new '06 timepieces. The standout feature, is the Tambour Fleurs Precieuses Collection. This collection comprised of various combinations of white gold, precious stones, sapphire glass and snake and alligator bands will surely make you the shyt for this season. Once again, Mr. Vuitton has succeeded in creating fierceness for fly femmes everywhere.
Surfing the net I came along this blog/website. Some of you may have learned about it and taken action already but for those that haven't, check it out. Al Cabino has started the world's first and only sneaker petition to get Nike to produce the McFly. These were the sneakers that Michael J Fox's character Marty McFly wore in the movie Back to the Future. The likes of DJ AM & Lupe Fiasco have already signed the petition. I say while we at it, why not request that Nike do the McFly collabo with NASA so that we can get the hoverboard to go along with the kicks.
P.S. Nike do not forget the Zoom Air Insoles in the McFly, Thank You.

Dem Franchize Boyz - I Think They Like Me
Provided by VideoCodes4U.com
Jermaine Dupri has taken So So Def to the top of the charts and the industry since his humble beginnings back in 1989. Now with the emergence of the South being the hotbed for pop music; I guess it's time for all those that didn't acknowledge the South, do so now. One character that can claim to being there with JD since the beginning is the So So Def Afroman. Afroman being the company logo, has been present since Kriss Kross, Xscape, Lil Bow Wow, to now Dem Franchize Boyz. Afroman is now being immortalized as an action figure. For only $200 cash, you can purchase a Afroman figurine which will also be accompanied by a mix CD featuring So So Def artist.
(CAUTION: YOU DO NOT PUT THIS WALLET IN THE BACK POCKET OF YOUR DENIM, WHILE THE iPOD IS IN IT!!!)

With this must have phone here, the Louis Vuitton Don might have to make a brand switch. Nokia and Versace come together to present the Nokia 7270: The Versace Edition. The phone is adorned in a yellow and black art deco ornament design with a carrying strap that is covered in Swarovski-crystals. With the phone being a limited edition release, with only 727 available worldwide, it is retailing for 799 Euro (Euro being the currency of choice, since it's only available in Europe). Pay the cost to be the Boss, especially with all proceeds going to a good cause LifeBall.org (a charity benefit for AIDS). With this phone anybody including Kanye will have no problem with people letting him talk his shit again.
