***navy & black*** From The Streets (Fashion)

Navy and Black! What springs to mind when you hear that? Do not mix! by any chance?

Don't you believe it! Mike Skinner AKA
The Streets blogged this week on his new website  "I saw a thing recently that said DO NOT BE AFRAID OF NAVY WITH BLACK..."

In my window dressing for Principles days I was told NEVER to mix Navy and black. I disagreed with this bog-standard theory because colours are an expression of freedom to discover and enhance our mood, personality and style be it decor, art, textiles or other. In the case of fashion, if it suites the person wearing it, lead by example!

In my personal opinion, I think Black and Navy worn together brings to light a dramatic, mysterious, slightly masculine look, especially when worn by women.
I studied colour therapy some years back and learned Navy means Truth, Healing and Intuition, while Black is Silent, Elegant and Powerful. With this in mind, it is easy to understand why Mike Skinner is not afraid to wear Navy and Black together as seen above ...

Skinner is most usually seen wearing Black and/or famously - Pink. A person who shows favouritism to Pink, especially in a male is often found to be Compassionate, Faithful and Sensitive and displays a child-like Innocence. Pink is also renown to have a calming effect, helpful indeed when you live in the busy mind of a modern day genius.

Mike Skinner takes Twitter to another level - ***re: @tessdejong , @jevo90 and @diplo ***

This past week has seen a virtual Mexican wave spread across Twitter with the return of @skinnermike AKA Mike Skinner AKA The Streets and his dedicated 88'717 strong Twitter following, and that figure - as I write - is after @skinnermike having had a full year off Twitter!

Skinner, always the leader has took Twitter to another level, by replying to his followers via video messages as posted here on LikeTheSound. It is a very personal and real way to correspond with his friends and followers whereas so many stars simply get someone else to tweet on their behalf - very lazy.
Skinnermike's latest video replies goes out to my good friend Tess DeJong, who is responsible for the brilliant Streets website titled The Streets Blog , Mad Decent DJ, Producer and Songwriter Diplo and Jevo whom I have not had Twitterings with as yet but you can follow him on Twitter jevo90 should you need to.
So, Shit on the Villa!

Mike Skinner AKA The Streets ***something to hide*** Video

Something To Hide, there will be something in this video that everyone will empathise and relate to, or as Skinner says if they don't there's something wrong.

I'm so glad Mike Skinner has made this and his other recent video's. To create these thoughts and observations in his mind and just leave them there to get lost with the daily clutter of in-and-out thoughts would quite literally be a crime.
Once hatched to the public, these little video's outgrow the effort and time it took to make. So please Mike Skinner, keep creating so we can linger, learn and grow.
Now readers, take the time to listen to Skinners words, pause for thought and listen again, because each time I listen, I understand a little more.

National debt? Ted Mayhem can't shave because? Mike Skinners teeth?
It's all in this tasty little video - Gingerbread latte flavoured of course.

I received Hello Hi this morning by 21 years old,  

South East London Rapper Teezy, real name Kye Lawrence Hughes. Check out these great Teezy tunes as well - Teezy ft P.U.K - Richer than me ( Official PUK Remix ) Teezy ft. Reece - London Girls and Make You Holla Teezy Ft Levelle.

Teezy, who has worked with Jay-Z, befriended mega stars BeyoncĂ© and Kelly Rowland, is a more than decent dancer, producer & singer, so it will be no surprise to learn he is enjoying his cut of support from 1Xtra, Choice, Radio 1, MTV Base, Flava and Channel AKA . He's a good looking lad too, the only thing that annoys me about Teezy is this whole 'Ladies Man' thing, I'm not really into that, anyway ...

enjoy the music and the video ...
