LL Cool J for Sears? Really!?

I just saw a commercial for the new LL Cool J collection at Sears.

The line is marketed at kids-juniors, and it is some neat stuff, but my inner Mom alarm is going off. Has no one at Sears ever seen his videos? He doesn't curse, or call women "ho's", and I respect that, but he's not exactly clean either. The majority of his videos do have sexual overtones, booty shaking dancers, and, of course, his trademark shirtless ripped abs.

LL seems to have led a pretty clean life, I hope he keeps that up. This line will certainly put his name on the minds of kids, and they will be watching to see how he acts.

Feasting on....waves???

Alton Brown, best known for his work on Good Eats and Iron Chef America, gives us another installment of his short series Feasting on Asphalt. This time, though, he ditches the motorcycle for watercraft, turning it to Feasting on Waves.
I loved the Asphalt 1 and 2, and am looking forward to seeing what A.B. comes up with in this nautical version.
It starts tonight on The Food Network!

In case you are ever in Orange...

If you ever find yourself wandering through Orange, CA, keep wandering over to 111 North Olive street! You will find the newest (and no doubt hippest) vintage store, Elsewhere Vintage, run by my fellow Vintage Fashion Guild member, and downright groovy chick, Kristine!
She just celebrated her grand opening, and still has a list a mile long of "to do's", but she's up and running, and it will all fall neatly into place in no time.
Here's the proud owner on opening day. Best wishes to Elsewhere Vintage!!
