So Bucky Turco, the Man behind Animal magazine, and I were chitchatting back and forth and he wanted to know what I would think if I received the evite below from Coltrane Curtis, who is, as I later learn , the MTV Fashion VJ (bitchy critque follows the primary source doc). UPDATE: The evite's writer retorts in the comments. Word up.
NEW YORK IS NO LONGER WACK ON THE WEEKENDS.... This is for all who will be in NY this weekend, and not dodging du-rags, chicken heads and bullets in
Voltron is forming... With 2 weeks under our belt, this GET FRESH FRIDAY is really a good look. Pretty faces, industry heavy-hitters, eclectically sexy professional women, good looking well-dressed eligible men (pause) and great sounds (Soul)...!
The shit that I really love, is that folks were dressed, looking good. LOOKING DAMN GOOD....! Sneakers, frames, heels, good denim, handbags, watches, were all in the building. We got started a lil late, like 11:30, but we rocked till my NewEra and Scott Langton shit got sweated thru (Shameless plug....!)
This week, Bombay Sapphire in the spot, FOR LADIES ONLY... fellas, don't even fix your lips to ask for a drink ticket. REAL TALK....! ---snip---

SPUNKER: Hmm, I would think...
ANIMAL: You're good. I was kind of feeling the same way. This mentioning of the clothes etc is what bothered me the most. And of course, it being way too fucking long. I kept thinking, can't this kid cut this banter down to 2 sentences?
SPUNKER:Yeah it’s like “First we looked good. Then lightened up after having enough sponsored drinks. Then we had some fun and got stinky in our good looking clothing. But first and foremost, we were good looking.” The *list* of accessories is pretty classic. Shit man, look at all these words you made me write. I should niptuck this whole thing into a blog entry.
ANIMAL:Yes you should, laf. (that may have been the point, I don't know myself, but sometimes I can be sneaky like that).
SPUNKER:Yeah aren’t you involved in the promo juice behind this? I thought I remembered coming across something like before.
ANIMAL: Fuck no. Please. Ugg. I should burn your email for even suggesting.
SPUNKER: Good. I’ll take my lighter away from the little framed certificate on the wall that says “respect for Bucky” as well then.
ANIMAL: No way. Ok. If you keep up the certificate I will forget your insinuation of me being behind such a terrible event, laf.
SPUNKER: The certificate stays!
