The Art of Tee…DOPE Lagerfeld!

 

We’ve been HUGE fans of DOPE COUTURE for a long time and not just because these boys originated from our home state of Indiana.  They have crafted an art for perfectly twisting luxury and street wear into must-have, mouth-drooling items.  We first found their amazing tees a few years ago at got SOLE, a small specialty store in Indianapolis.  Now they have two stores, Bloomington(Indiana) and Los Angeles, and DJ’s and musicians across the country are proudly wearing their tees.  We personally love their stuff because we believe they have fine-tuned the art of luxury for everyone and encompassed the belief of unexpected luxury into every thread!

The Lagerfeld Tee is available at DOPE COUTURE $32

The Art of TEE…I Made The Sexy List!

 

As lovers of true luxury, we are always fascinated by the finest watch, the finest suit…even the finest tee shirt.  Yes, there is no greater luxury than jumping out of bed to go get coffee on a Sunday morning and grabbing a pair of jeans from the night before and throwing on your favorite tee.  For most of us, we would be more upset if a tee shirt we got while scuba diving in Grand Cayman was torn than if we lost our most expensive tie.  True tee shirt lovers would look at the torn fabric as character and wear it proudly.

In our ever devoted mission of of a life of true luxury, we are going to host The Art of TEE…our daily pick in the search for great tee shirts.  We will pick these from random stores, online sites, stuff fans send us and even our own closets.

We thought it was only fitting our first tee shirt be our very own raannt I Made The Sexy List tee!(Yes folks, these little buddies are for sale!).

We look forward to surprising you with our picks of the day.  If you have a tee-shirt you’d like to send us, contact us on our contact page!

Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory…What Happened to the West Memphis 3?

 

As the new Peter Jackson financed documentary West of Memphis, is debuting at The Sundance Film Festival, HBO has been airing the third installment to the Paradise Lost sega, Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory, their answer to the West Memphis 3 murder convictions.  Having read all of the craziness occurring at Sundance with Jackson’s arrival with Paradise lead Damien Echols, we thought it would be interesting to watch the third installment we had heard so much about in the past few weeks.

Twenty years ago it was a different time in the United States.  Kids weren’t so concerned with Roth IRA’s or presidential debates.  The era of the mid-90’s was filled with the end of sex, drugs and rock and roll.  The West Memphis 3 were a perfect example of this debauchery and perfect targets for a murder case.  Interestingly, I was also a perfect example of this debauchery.  They weren’t much different than me or my friends at the time, probably a small fact which has drawn me to them for the past twenty years since the case began.  Probably the same reason so many other people have been drawn to them as well.  They could have been anyone in the wrong place at the wrong time but most importantly, misunderstood.

It goes without saying that the Paradise filming crew has once again mastered an amazing documentary as I found myself late into the night watching from behind the safety of my blankets, now an adult, wondering, just what the hell happened in those woods so long ago.  This is the crux of the focus of this installment, which, if you haven’t kept up with this story, will literally surprise the hell out of you.  An amazing soap opera which made me begging to find out more, even though the lost characters seem to be the three small children who lost their lives so long ago.

Before seeing West of Memphis you must watch the three-part series Paradise Lost.  Just as enticing today as it was when it first aired, rich with character study and intrigue, it will literally pull you in as if you also live in West Memphis.

Interestingly, while the majority of the three films have focused around the lead character, Damien Echols, the producers decide to end the entire trilogy with a poignant monologue by Jessie Baldwin, one of the other accused killers.  Seventeen years older and much more wise to the world, he seems to have found some truth within the walls of prison which left me wondering…is he the real story?

The WORST of Indy 2011!

The end of the world is coming in 2012…but for many of us, the end of the world came this year to Indy as we put together our WORST of Indy List! You didn’t actually believe we were so cruel we would list people on our list did you? Well…maybe a few, but even those few have allowed themselves into the spotlight for a moment, hopefully brief, of Kato Kaelin fame. So…here it is. Our picks for the Worst of Indy. While we’re sure many will get upset and angry, we know most will snicker to yourselves in the absolute truth within this list! Til next year…

10. Hamilton County’s Obsession with Roundabouts.
They won’t stop building them and no one knows how to drive on them. This isn’t Great Britain.

9. Downtown Safety at Bar Closing.
If you’ve been barricaded on South Meridian at 3:15 on a Saturday night…you know what we mean.

8. Parking Meters.
Do YOU understand the new meters? How much do we pay the surliest meter maids in the country?

7. Segregation of the Gay Community.
How can we expect people to vote in our favor when the gay community can’t even get along. Boo you whore. This isn’t high
school.

6. Poor Attempt at a Unified Fashion Industry.Is this Paris is Burning revisited, a student show or a one-man operation? We liked some attempt to make Indianapolis a fashion haven but now it’s a complete mess with models and stylists galore. Honey…not everyone will actually be Rachel Zoe or Kate Moss.

5. Bike Lanes and Lane Changes on 62nd Street Driving into Broad Ripple.
Recipe for disaster. What idiot thought this accident waiting to happen endeavor?

4. Colts Players Annual Earnings compared to a White Castle Employee for a Losing Business.
If you came through White Castle and got chicken rings instead of cheeseburgers three times in a row you’d expect
someone to lose their job. HELLO!!!!

3. Republican Representative Phil Hinkle’s “Craig List” Suga Daddy Hook Up at The J.W. Marriott.
This was maybe our only attempt for Indiana to end up on Chelsea Lately. We’d like to thank the Craig’s List boy!

2. Passing of HJR-6 in 2011 Against Gay Marriage.
Shame on you.

1. Porn star Bree Olsen of Charlie Sheen fame gets attention as “Indiana Celebrity of the Year”.
How ridiculous that Erica Stikeleather and Brittany Mason have left Indiana and actually had major accomplishments in
the entertainment industry while porn “star” Bree Olsen from northern Indiana secures major fame for fucking Charlie
Sheen. What…a disgrace.

Bang Bang! The A-List Dallas! Beautiful and Dirty…Rich!

Once again LOGO TV has spun out an amazing cast of reality characters to fill our television screens and entice us into their melodramatically, gay lives. Although The A-List Dallas has been on for some time, it definitely holds it’s own against the original A-List New York. Even more so in fact because this time, each player is so interesting on their own…or together. After nude pictures of cast member Levi leaked several weeks ago on the internet, the world learned that everything actually is bigger in Texas. This being true we wanted to go past the zipper of truth and find out what is really ticking inside this eclectic group of reality star ingenues…

JAMES



1. What five words would you use to define yourself?

Spontaneous, Passionate, Irresponsible, Loving, Faithful

2. What are the differences between the A-list New York and the A-list Dallas.
There is no comparison, we both live in different worlds.

3. In Dallas, why are you on the A-list and not the D-list?
It’s all about who you know, and maintaining a good relationship with anyone you meet. Relationships with great people lead to great connections, and great connections lead to amazing lives.

4. Describe your other cast members in one word:
Chase: Responsible
Ashley: Spunky
Levi: Charmer
Phillip: Loud
Taylor: Opinionated


5. What do you have that everyone else wants making you a commodity on the A-list?

The most blessed and amazing life I could ever ask for.

6. If you were a book, what would your title be?
Confessions of a Midwestern Gay Man.

LEVI

1. What five words would you use to define yourself?
Truly One-of-a-kind

2. What are the differences between the A-list New York and the A-list Dallas.
The over all tone will be the most obvious difference, I believe “Southern Hospitality” shines brighter than a “New York Attitude”. The NY cast is very entertaining, but I see a lot more diversity in the cast members of Dallas.

3. In Dallas, why are you on the A-list and not the D-list?
I think the biggest quality I poses that really puts me on a level all my own is my ability to get anything done with a good phone call or two. I take a lot of pride pulling things together nobody else can. It is a wicked combination of problem solving skills, juggling a dozen things at a time, a huge network of amazing professionals I have developed over my entire life, and the stubbornness to NEVER take “No” for an answer. When you have the reputation of being the go to guy, people love to stay on your good side.

4. Describe your other cast members in one word:
Chase:Brilliant
James:Young
Ashley:Blond
Phillip:Branded
Taylor:Bat-Shit-Crazy

5. What do you have that everyone else wants making you a commodity on the A-list?
“Just because you are a character, doesn’t mean you have character.” -W. Wolf
I have always had a very intense personality. I have a life long reputation for doing things completely outside of the box, being comfortable in my own skin and always being myself. Everybody wants to be an original, I just always have been.


6. If you were a book, what would your title be?

Get Your Cowboy On; If you aren’t comfortable in your own shoes, try on a pair of boots

TAYLOR

1. What five words would you use to define yourself?
Ambitious, Successful, Outspoken, Christian, Republican

2. What are the differences between the A-list New York and the A-list Dallas.

We are younger, hotter and have less wrinkles!

3. Describe your other cast members in one word:
Chase: Sassy
James: Misunderstood
Ashley: Genuine
Levi: Sexy
Phillip: Trouble-maker
Taylor: HOT

5. What do you have that everyone else wants making you a commodity on the A-list?
Good looks, charm, success and connections to all the decision makers of Dallas.

6. If you were a book, what would your title be?
Grin and Garrett

CHASE

1. What five words would you use to define yourself?
Honest, Blunt, Hard-working, Sassy, Fair

2. What are the differences between the A-list New York and the A-list Dallas.
The A-List Dallas is a show that actually shows true emotions and reality…

3. In Dallas, why are you on the A-list and not the D-list?
I have never once said I am “A-List.” You can call me “Y-List” for all I care…anyways, the people that say they are “A-List” are normally people that so badly want to be something that they are not. They are the insecure, debt-ridden, annoying people you see in a BMW 6 Series drive into an apartment complex, walking up to their 500 square feet rented “studio….” I mean come on….we all know it is true…

4. Describe your other cast members in one word:
James: – messy
Ashley: – sparkly
Levi: – charming
Phillip: – loud
Taylor: – fake

5. What do you have that everyone else wants making you a commodity on the A-list?
Awesome hair

6. If you were a book, what would your title be?
Jesus Christ, God-Damn It

PHILLIP

1. What five words would you use to define yourself?
Loud, Trendsetter, Gay, Outspoken, Diva

2. What are the differences between the A-list New York and the A-list Dallas?
The difference between the A-List NY/A-List Dallas is I consider us a real family. No matter what the situation is between us we will always have each others back. We break-up to make-up and then probably break up again. Haha.

3. In Dallas, why are you on the A-list and not the D-list?
Because I’m “cooler” than the other side of the pillow. Haha! I’m pretty much the who’s who in Dallas. There’s no doubt about it.

4. Describe your other cast members in one word:
Chase: Judgemental
James: Victim
Ashley: Barbie
Levi: Gentleman
Taylor: Unicorn (supposedly gay republicans don’t exist.)


5. What do you have that everyone else wants making you a commodity on the A-list?

A BIG… sense of humor. Haha.

6. If you were a book, what would your title be?
Stepping out.. The Truth Behind Phillip Willis

ASHLEY



1. What five words would you use to define yourself?

Artistic, conservative, LOVING, married, Christian.

2. What are the differences between the A-list New York and the A-list Dallas.
I think the main difference between our cast and the NY Cast is our love for each other! We really love and support each other!

3. In Dallas, why are you on the A-list and not the D-list?
Clearly I’m on the A-List because my name starts with an “A.”

4. Describe your other cast members in one word:
Chase: Sarcastic
James: My baby boy
Levi: Rough
Phillip: Selfish
Taylor: Quirky

5. What do you have that everyone else wants making you a commodity on the A-list?
I have a very secure, solid, happy marriage!

6. If you were a book, what would your title be?
I would be a 10-volume series of Pulitzer Prize-winning text books titled “Dumb Blonde.” Don’t judge a book by it’s cover!
