Following on from my previous post Patrice Rushen’s Hair I have become a bit obsessed with Rick Jame’s hair too!

I’ve just been reading the Skins style blog on the E4 site and although I’m not a massive fan of the show, some of the style references are really interesting. I’m actually quite impressed by the styling, I’ve never paid much attention to what the characters wore in the show but the clothes seem to be chosen with real care and matched to each characters personality. For example the way that Cook’s wardrobe is made up of casuals, clothes made popular by football fans in the 1980s, because he is a bit of a hooligan. I like that some pieces are designer, some are vintage and some are just plain old highstreet.

p.s. I didn’t mean I like crack.
Continuing on from the last post, I discovered this great video interview with Jazzie B on the Guardian website. He talks to music journalist Paul Morley about the current state of “black” music in Britain today and raises some very relevant points. What I find most interesting is when Jazzie talks about the repackaging of music that is, essentially, black music (not necessarily made by black artists but definitely influenced by black music styles) being lumped under the baffling genre: URBAN. What is urban music anyway? I’m guessing anything that’s not pop or indie (i.e. white music). Another thing that struck a chord with me in this interview is when he suggests that the X Factor do away with Dannii Minogue and Louis Walsh and replace them with Trevor Nelson and Tim Westwood in order to give a more accurate representation of the UK music industry on the show. It really should be implemented in the next series – but I don’t see it happening anytime soon sadly.
