Eye Candy: Denise Bidot Is Such A Cut-Up In Her Monokini (Video)

Monokini. What a nice way to say, “Sexy one-piece.” Shorten that right on up and make it skimpier and hotter. I have actually borne witness to many a sexy thick Miss in a ‘standard’ one-piece. But this style on Denise is that cut-up. Mmm…

(Imagination. It’s a beautiful thing. Like Denise Bidot’s fine self!)

Be unapologetically you.

Adam Saaks has made sexy hand-crafted suits for everyone from Heidi Klum to Jessica Alba, but you won’t believe the one he designed for Swimsuits For All model Denise Bidot.

Pusha T – “Bodega Babies” (Video)

Okay, so it’s a promo video for adidas Originals… but that Pusha track entitled “Bodega Babies” is featured prominently in it. And speaking of prominent (e.g. placed to be very recognizable), anybody heard that beat before? Like during the Swizz Beatz vs. Just Blaze beat battle we posted on here?

The Bodega, a place for growth and evolution in all senses; where people buy their groceries, hang outside at night, and gain respect from peers. We pay tribute to the hub of many communities. The EQT Support Ultra King Push “Bodega Babies” hits the streets November 3rd. #KingPushEQT
– adidas Originals

Oh, and before you ask, of course, I know who the thickalicious bodacious Honey that walked into the Bodega mid-flick is… Fabolous knows her, too. That’s his wifey Emily Bustamante aka Emily B. Mercy on me, Fab is a fortunate man #BLESS

Eye Candy: Fiorella In Swimsuits… ‘Nuff Said! (Video)

Ain’t no need for me (or you) to lie about it. MissPeru aka Fiorella makes me sweat AND brings on the thirst… and the thirst is SO real. Respect to whoever did the beat for this, but yoooooo, respect to Fiorella’s parents for giving her the genes to look so hot in jeans.

But not this go ’round. All swimwear in there! You’re welcome.

Remember When That Cliffside Shop Was Giving Out Free Jackets? (Video)

Ah! Here’s what looks like a winner for best response to when bae pops up like, “Honey, let’s go shopping,” all excited and *ish. Just make sure bae’s not a climbing enthusiast, and you can have your weekend back… Sheeeeit! They haven’t made a jacket worth a death-defying rock climb. Sorry, so NOT sorry. HA!

A pop-up clothing shop lets you get warm 300 feet up.

Cocona set up a shop 300 feet in the air in Colorado’s Eldorado Canyon. Climbers earned the clothing simply by making the ascent up the canyon’s Bastille Wall — no purchase necessary.

Cocona wants to show off their clothing, which is based on “37.5 technology” — it keeps climbers’ body temperature at 37.5 degrees Celsius, or 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit. Many climbers claim that temperature is ideal for endurance.

People Have Been ‘Disrespecting The Flag’ For Decades (Video)

Hmm… So why are these actual Flag Code violations (read: instances of disrespect for the flag) okay, but ‘taking a knee’ is not? Fact is, kneeling is NOT a violation of flag code. So, what now? Talk to us, ‘Murica.

Trump said NFL players disrespected the flag by kneeling during the national anthem. As it turns out, “disrespecting” the flag is probably more common than you think.

FL Raised Me. LA Pays Me. 5’1 But Your Girl Still Looks Up To Me!

Mm mm mm! Five-foot-one fun-sized Fiorella make a fella go woooweee! Do you see them hips with all that extra grip? Plus the IG is lit. I fell for the stills, but the video took me down even before I got to the ‘Gram.

Eye Candy: Coco Austin (Ice-T’s Wife) On Giving Herself Even More Cleavage [Video]

Mercy, mercy on ME!

Most awesome (and unnecessary) line in this entire video of Coco, “Don’t blink!” As if I would EVER even THINK to blink while watching Co talk about amping up her already uber-ample cleavage. What?! Then she ends this with, “It’s awesome!” FACTS!

I lust love talks like these, Coco. More please, please MORE.

And you can talk about almost anything. I mean, I’m a Neil deGrasse Tyson fanatic. But if you bring them astronomical thangs to a TEDxTalk and lecture on astrophysics, you can HAVE his spot! Plus, I think we already have a TEDx Talk from hubby Ice-T on here.

Say No To The Dress, The Caterer, To The Whole Expensive Wedding… It’s All A Total Rip-Off (Video)

How could the College Humor crew dare to attack the sacred, traditional, necessary institution of marriage? Well, because it is really none of that. Just hella expensive for no damn reason (except, well, commerce)!

No hate, even though Adam does Ruin Everything… like the need for big weddings in this episode. Just like he did the ‘wedding ring’ racket (see here).

(Your fiancee might not need to see this though. Haaa!)

Flasback 1954: The Secret Of Selling The Negro (Lifted From The ‘I Am Not Your Negro’ Documentary) [Video]

You just have to watch this and take it in. It is from a bygone era, so do not terminology totally get you in your feelings. Realize though, that this was a way the ‘market opportunity’ the Black consumer segment was presented.

Film commissioned by the Chicago-based publisher of Negro Digest, Ebony, and Jet to encourage advertisers to reach out to African American consumers. The Secret of Selling the Negro depicts the lives, activities, and consumer behavior of African American professionals, students, and housewives. A Business Screen reviewer noted that the film focused on the “bright positive” aspects of the “new Negro family.”

NOTE: The sponsor issued a companion booklet offering the “do’s and don’ts of selling to the Negro.”

– Reelblack

Wow. This explains why we MUST have those sneakers or fly jewelry or whatever… Not bad, all things considered. Actually really insightful.
