Michael Jackson Ghost At Neverland During CNN Interview???

Words cannot describe the feeling that I felt as I watched this video. Although I missed the shadow figure the first time I watched the video, I still felt a tremendous feeling take over my spirit. I replayed the video and the feeling that I had shook my soul deeply. Not sure how true this video is, whether it’s been doctored, or if I am still overwhelmed with grief about Michael Jacksons passing, but I am definitely spooked! Some say it is just a shadow. I am not sure, but I can tell you m heart beats very heavy each time I watch this video and I am not the scary type… PLEASE R.I.P. Michael Jackson.

Who Is Taz Arnold… What is Style?


Taz, Taz, Taz…

After reading Taz Manian Rebel a recent article in YRB Magazine on Taz Arnold I felt it was my duty to pass the word. See, most people do not understand style. To me, style is something you either have or you don’t. I personally have always felt that style cannot be taught. Many people may not understand Taz’s style, but I can guarantee those that do not understand likely do not have a style of their own. When you are unique and have “it”, you get “it”! Taz Arnold is one of the few guys that get’s it!

I felt compelled to comment on the YRB article because I grew up in Los Angeles during the time that Taz refers to in the article. Yes, Taz and Kanye’s current style is a part of LA’s hidden culture that has never been exposed. From Polo RL 2000, Monkey Boots, Doc Martins, Creepers, tapered Dickeys, Vans and even surfer gear such as Town and Country, OP, and Body Tap contrary to what the media has portrayed not everyone in Los Angeles grew up wearing “gangster apparel.”

I remember growing up being super popular, but at the same time teased allot because I wasn’t like the other kids that I went to school with. I was “Preppy” or “Trendy”, which was not cool if you went to an urban school. Many Trendy people grew up on the tough streets of Los Angeles, but for whatever reason were just different. We were the kids that as I like to remember it “before the times.” Many of us were the kids that were on American Bandstand as opposed to Soul Train. We were the kids dancing at local dance competitions as opposed to gang banging. We were the kids that understood the value of Vans as opposed to Nikes. Simply put, we were the kids that were not afraid to express ourselves and our style.

“A guy won’t wear shorts above his knees because he’s scared of what people think. Like who the fuck dresses for other people? Why are you spending all this money so that you can look like somebody else?”TAZ ARNOLD

I was once featured on the cover page of the Los Angeles Times calendar section wearing army fatigues, a jean shirt, a vest, Doc Martins, and my signature ponytail at the top of my head. On an episode of American Bandstand, Dick Clark asked me about my style and why was I wearing jeans with holes. In elementary I wore penny loafers and polo shirts. In Jr. high and high school, I was one of the first people to wear Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica, and Timberlands while still staying true to the trendy era wearing Creepers and Monkey Boots. I also rocked allot of Fila, Louis Vuitton, and MCM while being on some New York sh*t at the same time. I say all this to say that style cannot be taught and it is NOT about the labels… style is about CONFIDENCE. Taz Arnold has the confidence to wear what every he imagines. Taz Arnold is Exposed To LIFE STYLE… he defines HIS STYLE!

“Whether he’s rocking black wings, leopard pants, cowboy boots or eight Gucci belts, Taz Arnold has had an open mind since way back.”YRB MAGAZINE

China’s Spring Airlines “Standing Room Only” Fares


Airbus had been quietly pitching the “Standing Room Only” option to Asian airlines. Leave it to a Chinese airline to be the first to introduce the concept! Although the idea has been floated around since 2006, China’s Spring Airlines says it has been considering the concept of selling standing room only fares since the beginning of 2009 and claim that the new method is “just like bar stools.” They also believe the standing room only fares could allow for 40% more passengers and cut costs by 20%, while lowering airfare for consumers.

I am not sure what the masses think about this concept, but for the life of me, I do not understand WHY someone would want to stand up on a flight.

BREAKING NEWS: Steve McNair Found Dead


This week has just been crazy with all the deaths. ESPN is reporting that Steve McNair was found dead of a gunshoot wound to the head. He was shot along with a young lady. Story is still developing.

CNN is now reporting that a law enforcement source close to the investigation said the woman is McNair’s girlfriend and that the residence where the two were found dead is her condominium in downtown Nashville.

My only question is, where was his wife?
