Canadian-born supermodel Daria Werbowy famed as the face of Prada and Lancôme, has posed completely nude for French Vogue‘s fashionable new calendar which will be available as a supplement to its upcoming Christmas issue with a “fantasy and sensuality” theme, guest-edited by Tom Ford. The statuesque stunner wears nothing but some gold Louis Vuitton jewelry which seems to be all the adornment she needs. Werbowy was named the eighth highest paid supermodel in the world for 2010, earning $4.5 million. Her other ad campaigns include Yves Saint Laurent, Roberto Cavalli, Gucci, Hermès,Valentino, David Yurman, Missoni, Versace, Louis Vuitton and Chanel.

RECAP: Chicago

RECAP: On saturday, i had the honor to sit in on a Jason Fried's ending keynote at the CEO event in Chicago. Towards the end, Ryan Holmes asked this question “What’s your take on the true value of a university education?”-
This was posted by Jason's Fried's blog yesterday-

Today I gave my last conference talk for a while. Next year I’m going to focus on our own 37signals events. It feels good to not have any external speaking obligations in 2011.
At the end of the talk I took some Q&A. The last question was asked by a guy in the front row. He said “What’s your take on the true value of a university education?” I shared my general opinion (summary: great socially, but not realistic enough academically) and ended with a description of a course I’d like to see taught in college. In fact, I’d like to teach it.
It would be a writing course. Every assignment would be delivered in five versions: A three page version, a one page version, a three paragraph version, a one paragraph version, and a one sentence version.
I don’t care about the topic. I care about the editing. I care about the constant refinement and compression. I care about taking three pages and turning it one page. Then from one page into three paragraphs. Then from three paragraphs into one paragraph. And finally, from one paragraph into one perfectly distilled sentence.
Along the way you’d trade detail for brevity. Hopefully adding clarity at each point. This is important because I believe editing is an essential skill that is often overlooked and under appreciated. The future belongs to the best editors.
Each step requires asking “What’s really important?” That’s the most important question you can ask yourself about anything. The class would really be about answering that very question at each step of the way. Whittling it all down until all that’s left is the point.
I hope to be able to teach this class one day.

The Fighter | Movie Trailer

Here’s a look at the upcoming movie “The Fighter” starring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, and Amy Adams. Based on a true story, the movie is a drama about boxing champ “Irish” Micky Ward and his half-brother Dicky and how they turned into the boxing/trainer duo. Look for the film this December. Enjoy!

Rip Curl Mirage 2 Boardshort Video

If you didnt know, RIP CURL is a Australian Company
Since the original scene in the Matrix involving “bullet time”, the stunning approach to visuals has become an appealing way of showcasing movement and speed. Rip Curl took to a Malaysian wavepool to create the effect to highlight their Mirage 2 boardshoot. As surfers were towed in by a Jetski, a 52-camera set-up involving Canon 5D Mark IIs captured all the scenes.

BEEF: Complex Interview: Kid Cudi Takes Shots At Wale

Before I start, We all heard this SONG, Wale clearly is talking bout Cudi in the first verse. 

"Me and him was homeless , maybe we still cool , 
But every time we book , we stay in our green room , 
Maybe its on me , or brother its on you , 
Or maybe its they fault that we aint holla since June , 
Fuck it we on the move , none of use tryna lose , 
I am out of this world and you a man on the moon , "

COMPLEX: Speaking of Wale, when you hit that fan at your show last December, he came out with a line about it ["Throwin' 'round wallets like the dude that Kid Cudi hit," from "Thank You Freestyle"].

Kid CudiIt wasn’t a shot, it’s just a simple-ass rhyme by a simple-ass rapper. You can’t let that shit faze you. That’s one of those raps that just shows the world that you wack. Why would you even use that as a metaphor? Everybody think they Hov. Niggas ain’t got the magic like they think they do; there’s only a couple of wizards in this game. I’m a wizard and I know it.

COMPLEX: Are your peers not seeing that?
Kid Cudi: The last album, I let people dis me, throw out those jabs in their verses and have their little slick remarks. This time around, I’m not fucking around. I have no time to think about other niggas. These other motherfuckers like feeding off another nigga’s energy, so they mention their name. You hear me talk about niggas? I don’t even talk about Kanye, and that’s my homeboy! They talk about Kanye like they’re bosom buddies with this nigga. Talking about “I be in Hawaii”—man, shut the fuck up, why you got to tell everybody everything? Then people like Wale get mad that ‘Ye ain’t give him no beats—’Ye ain’t give you no beats because we ain’t fucking with your raps. It’s not a conspiracy theory. We don’t fuck with you musically, so we’re not going to provide music for you. The shit is a service, it’s a quality of a certain standard. Niggas are just so thirsty it’s ridiculous. I’ve been eating humble pie forever, and people still call me an asshole. These people don’t know my fucking life—now I’m going to give them something to talk about.

ART: What is it?

The gigantic rubber duck by artist Florentijn Hofman. The photos are a over-size rubber duck in the harbor of Hasselt, Belgium. It is 12 x 14 x 16 meters. Florentijn Hofman said:

"The Rubber Duck knows no frontiers, it doesn't discriminate people and doesn't have a political connotation. The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial tensions as well as define them. The rubber duck is soft, friendly and suitable for all ages!"

Marcus Troy's Thoughts on "Your Team"

We all know the popular phrase there is no I in Team but as much as a team can help you win they can also help you lose.
I’ve seen people who’ve had the potential to be great, fail because of who they had on their team.
The easiest way for this to happen is when you have people on your team misrepresenting you in public, sometimes this happens without your knowledge. They think they are doing you a favor but in reality they are doing you a disservice. Whether they’re trying to secure deals for you that you would not authorize, committing to things that you wouldn’t approve  of or simply just being the wrong person you need speaking on your behalf.
A lot of business deals have gone down the drain because of who was on someone’s team. A lot of my peers won’t do business with someone unless they know exactly who is on a team. When you are young and naïve you might not think about who needs to be on your team, you usually just roll with the people you’ve been around with your whole life. Sometimes you have to switch it up and strategically decide who you want to be around you, especially if you want to be successful.
The latest example I can share with you guys is about this artist who has great potential to make it but his team is hurting him beyond belief without him even knowing it. The guys he hangs around with want him to win so bad that they are aggressively pushing and bombarding everyone with the artists work. People are really starting to get fed up with these tactics so they are starting to hate said artist. The artist never really did any wrong  except have a bad team representing him. People always end up hating the product not the sales guy.
A team can be the guys you hang around with, your family members, the people you choose to do business with it or just the people others perceive to be down with you.
Remember that scene in Carlito’s way when Carlito’s nephew was out in the streets misrepresenting by saying how Carlito wanted to get back into the game, but it was not true? Well we all know how that scene ended…
So I suggest you be careful who you have pushing for you, which people you keep in your corner, and who you have representing you in the streets. It can really make the big difference in your life.

A Conversation with Wiz Khalifa

During the conversation Wiz talks about connecting with fans, beat selection, "a culmination of shit" being his biggest achievement, and how the one thing he wants to do is have a sesh with Bill Clinton and Montell Williams. He also talks about his influences (Killa Cam, Snoop, etc.) and who he listens to regularly.

"Either I am High & Happy, or, Im asleep" lmao

Fresh Kicks

Stars like Pharrell Williams and Swizz Beatz have been sporting Christian Louboutin's Fall/Winter 2010 shoe collection. There was a large amount of buzz during last years debut of their sneaker line. Currently they are leaning towards loafers and boots. Anyone who wears these have a lot of balls. @OGOchoCino has been twit picing his collection for the past couple of weeks, not surprised Christian Louboutin's are on his shoe rack!
