Sublime was an American ska punk and alternative rock band from Long Beach, California, formed in 1988. The band’s line-up, unchanged until their breakup, consisted of Bradley Nowell (vocals and guitar), Eric Wilson (bass) and Bud Gaugh (drums). Lou Dog, Nowell’s dalmatian was the mascot of the band. Michael ‘Miguel’ Happoldt and Marshall Goodman “Ras MG” contributed to and co-wrote several Sublime songs. Nowell died of a heroin overdose in 1996. In 1997, posthumous songs such as “Santeria”, “Wrong Way”, “Doin’ Time”, and “April 29, 1992 (Miami)” were released to U.S. radio. (via Wikipedia)
There is so much I could write about Sublime, but I like to keep these throwbacks short and sweet. Sublime was part of my teenage soundtrack. Having stumbled upon them from the white girls I went to highschool with – my scholarship proved to be way more influential through the music and art I was exposed to from my peers.
Sublime’s sound is such a perfect mix of ska, reggae and alternative rock. They’re even influencing people like Bruno Mars, who low-key borrowed their “Santeria” harmony for his hook in Travis McCoy’s song “Billionaire”. Check it below and let me know I’m not tripping.
Last night I had the honor of DJing the 10th year anniversary party for my BAPE family alongside Flat White (Virgil Abloh), Cipha Sounds, and Sky Gellatly. There were amazing performances by my friends Pusha T and Travi$ Scott. The party also introduced their new limited-edition capsule collection which features collaborations with artist like Kid Cudi, Flatbush Zombies, Futura, and more. It was definitely a night to remember (and not to mention my birthday!)
So, as you may or may not know – My birthday is tomorrow! Yes, April 23rd. Not that I have a need for anything, but since I’ve done these lists in the past for fun (2013, 2012 & 2011) of things that I would like for my bornday…and I thought, why not give it another go since they have been a little popular!
Though this southern beauty has graced the pages of Vogue Magazine a whopping 28 times, Lauren Hutton is more than just a pretty face.
The stunning Hutton, who was born Mary Laurence Hutton, started her career New York City after graduating from Tulane University. Her trademarked gap-toothed smile made her standout from other models. In 1973, she signed a deal with Revlon which turned into a 10 year partnership. The former Playboy Bunny went on to work with Ford Modeling Agency, Calvin Klein, and many more.
Though Lauren was passionate about her modeling and acting, she found motorcycling to be one of her greatest joys.
Later, Lauren Hutton took her knowledge of the cosmetic industry and went on to start Lauren Hutton Cosmetics.
