Twelve Reasons I loved 2012…It’s a Count Down! #12


Posted by Elphaba Of The Brew | Posted in brew bits, brew commentary, Kanye West | Posted on 23-12-2012

A subjective look at pop culture’s finest offerings in the year of the Mayan anti-Apocalypse


Kanye West’s Leather Pants.    Kanye  showed us how fashionable he is,  this year,  by wearing the same damn pants regardless of season or location.  From Paris to Hawaii…leather jeggings were on deck.  The best part was he also dropped several musical gems about his stylish ways…my fave: ‘DON’T TALK TO ME ABOUT STAYYYLE!  I’LL EMBARRASS YOU!!” Oh, Yeezy.

What’s that saying? “If you’re a nice guy, you don’t have to TELL everyone you’re a nice guy?” Well the same goes for the stylish. If you are an icon of style YOU don’t have to be the one to toot your own horn. People will want to emulate you.  You will not have to name drop designers in the hopes that people think you’re sooo in the know (Sidenote: wtf is up with rap these days? Is it a mirror on culture or fugging  Women’s Wear Daily?).   You will be recognized as the ‘style shiznit’.

See, the thing is I get what you’re doing Mr. Karwest.  I really do.  Most style Icons have a “uniform”.  Karl Lagerfeld has: embalming fluid, nipped in dainty waist and fingerless gloves. Andre Leon Talley:  graduation gowns.  Anna Wintour:  ability to snatch your soul with a glance and her bob.  Calvin Klein : young dude arm candy and Botox. Balenciaga’s, Alexander Wang :  sheer tees and leggings like he just stepped out of  ballet barre class.  I GET IT… sucka.

The whole point of  uniform idea is that you are so chock full of brilliant fashion nuggets you don’t want to distract yourself or anyone else with what YOU are wearing. Your ‘uniform’ becomes  your marketing as well, part of your brand.  So, you decided come rain sleet or snow, that YOUR uniform would be leather meggings.  You dress them up and down and wear them all year round (aww that rhymed).  You give the finger to climate.  You endure the tepid pool of ball sweat that you undoubtedly have puddling about your Yeezy sack on a daily basis. All for the love. I feel you.  I still don’t know what that is saying about your design ethic…when you don’t seem to actually be spending time designing.

You Shrug


Sigh, you used to be so much FUN.  Bring that dude back!
Love you Mr. West!


P.S. I respectfully decline the invitation to kiss your whole ass…or more specifically your ass hole. But thank you.



Brew Bits: Shaq Wants To Get You Drunk & Keep Your Colon Clean


Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in brew bits, shaq | Posted on 20-12-2012

Luv ShaqShaquille O’Neal is launching his own likka. But Shaq’s coconut-flavored vodka, “Luv Shaq,” won’t make you fat or clog up your colon. His alcohol will be sugar-free AND gluten-free. The Luv Shaq bottle will feature Shaq’s image with giant wings. Luv Shaq hits stores in early 2013 and will be priced to compete with Ciroc (watchoutdehDiddy). So, basically, Shaq is the Bethenny Frankel for black people.

If I can make a Coco Loso and not get fat(ter) or ingest gluten: WINNING! (Ok, I don’t really care about the Gluten though)… Will you drink Luv Shaq?

The Denial Chronicles Vol. #23433: J.R. Smith


Posted by Fleur Delacour | Posted in K. Michelle, Twitter is the debbil, Twittervention | Posted on 20-12-2012

I remember this dude in middle school who liked me, or at least that’s what he said, until one day a group of his friends circled us and called us a couple so he denied it then talked about my socks! Flashbacks aside, this is pretty much what happened to K “Don’t Shake” Michelle and the Knicks’ J.R. Smith. A few days after pictures surfaced of their love on top, @TheRealJRSmith took to Twit for twats a.k.a. The Twitters to eloquently diss the Love & Hop Hop Atlanta star.

And then this one:

And then this one:

Ok I think we get the picture boo. That’s not your chick! But did @kmichelle really deserve this public equivalent to pushing her down in the sandbox and running away? Grown up, son!


Tamar vs. Bey’s belly + What’s Brewing!


Posted by Fleur Delacour | Posted in Beyonce, brew bits, Tamar Braxton, What's Brewing | Posted on 20-12-2012

You gotta admit Tamar Braxton doesn’t hold her tongue…for anyone! But @tamarbraxtonher might want to huddle with Ms. Keri Hilson Baby before she goes after Beyonce. That and more in today’s “What’s Brewing” report for idv8radio.com.


Cornball Corner: Rob Parker


Posted by Fleur Delacour | Posted in Cornball corner, espn, Rob Parker | Posted on 20-12-2012

Suspended ESPN analyst Rob Parker has issued a “What Had Happened” regarding his insensitive comments about Redskins Quarterback Robert Griffin III and race.

@RobParkerESPN tweeted:

The long ass tweet continued with “The failure was in how I chose to discuss it on First Take, and in doing so, turned a productive conversation into a negative one. I regrettably introduced some points that I never should have and I completely understand the strong response to them.

Translation: “It’s Christmas time and daddy needs a check!”

This is his first comment since ESPN suspended him. What say you Brewchies? The read deal or “boy, bye!”?
