A couple of new looks I like for this Fall/Winter 2011

Heavy sweaters are great, means you don't really have to wear a jacket.

 Military Jackets are always a must for guys.

I'm really into the suit blazers and matching up a good suite with some converse.

Totally into the jeans tops and plainly-ness and clean looks.

Parade of Trabants

The Fifth Annual Parade of Trabants
at the

800 F St.  NW
Washington DC

The Berlin Wall is long gone, but one Cold War icon is still chugging away—the Trabant. Despite their questionable performance and smoky two-stroke engines, these little cars are now affectionately regarded as a symbol of East Germany and the fall of Communism. On November 5th some of the finest examples in the U.S. will chug their way to the International Spy Museum to celebrate our Fifth Annual Parade of Trabants:
  • View the parade of vintage cars parked outside the Museum on F Street NW
  • Enter to win a ride in a Trabant
  • Debrief with experts about the Cold War and the iconic car
  • Enjoy the German band Blaskapelle Alte Kameraden

It's not a stretch, at all, to say that Claude Young is one of the greatest techno DJs who has ever lived. Aside from his incredible taste, Claude's technical skills behind the decks are nothing short of astonishing. His cut-and-paste style is closer to that of a hip-hop DJ than a techno jock, but he really makes it work. Claude has remixed and produced records for some of the greatest names in the business from Kevin Saunderson, Carl Craig, 4 Hero, Octave One, Sven Vath, Alter Ego and a host of other names too long to mention. In 2006 in Tokyo, Claude met Takasi Nakajima, and together they formed Different World. 2 brothers born in different countries but of the same mind who encompass an entire wealth of electronic music history in their performance. They have a record coming soon on Kirk Degiorgio's ART label, and had a track included on Marcel Fengler's Berhain mix CD.

Sutekh aka Seth Horvitz is an interdisciplinary artist, electronic musician, composer, and designer whose work focuses on the relationship between human perception, iterative process, and the idiosyncratic behavior of machines. Most known for his extensive discography as Sutekh, he has produced “paradoxical techno” since the mid-1990s for dozens of record labels including Force Inc./Mille Plateaux (Germany), Soul Jazz Records (UK), The Leaf Label (UK), Orthlorng Musork (USA), Creaked (Switzerland), and his own Context Free Media. As a performer, he has appeared at festivals, museums, and nightclubs across the Americas, Europe, Australia, and Japan. He has also collaborated with visual artist Nate Boyce for a presentation at the De Young Museum (San Francisco) and performed at this year's FORWARD Festival and Berkeley Art Museum using an obsolete CRT monitor as an instrument. His first collection of “Studies for Automatic Piano” was published by the LINE imprint in June 2011, released under his given name.

Exciting news for mens fashion here in DC.  The old location of Palace Five along 14th and Florida Ave, now has a sister store next door, they shrunk the Palace Five part and put a newer store called Federal next door.  They have a more rustic urban feeling, with old decor and garments from  street-wear and heritage brands.  They have loaded up on Levi's vintage collection, Levi's made & Crafted, Dickies and Brixton.   The store will also carry a variety of bags and accoutrements from Ray-Ban, Filson, Pendleton, Herchel Supply Co. and much more.  The night I went they were going to have a soft opening with drinks and mingling.

International Dining in DC : Chix

2019 11th St.  NW
Washington DC

Today I decided to take a peek at Chix, Located right off U St., this place was usually packed with outdoor seating when I would pass by on my bike in the summer.  I wanted to try something new today.  I tried the Whole Peruvian chicken with 3 sides.  The Chicken tasted like it was marinated over night and the chicken practially fell off the bones, such a mess to eat, I LOVED IT.  The sides were very filling, I ordered the black beans and rice with sweet potatoes fries and noodles and cheese.  If your in the mood for something organic and healthy eat here, Chix is the spot.  They have tons of seating up stairs and also have Wi-Fi.  the staff was very friendly as well and rest rooms were up to par!  There are three trash cans, you must read carefully because Chix, wants the best for the world.   I give Chix 4 out of 5 stars.  YUMMY

Mead Theater Lab
916 G Street, NW

Join us for the Junesong Arts' production of WE FIGHT WE DIE, October 27 - November 12.

The echoes of the ancient Greeks collide with rhythms of spoken word in Timothy J. Guillot’s new work WE FIGHT WE DIE. Guided by a modern day chorus, WE FIGHT WE DIE tells the story of Q, a homeless, virtuosic graffiti artist who has transfixed the local city with his stunning and subversive work. Now that the police have finally caught him, Q is forced to license his talents to local government in order to avoid jail. And Q don’t want to.
