Some people feel TECHNICOLOR was good for it's time. As TECHNOLOGY reached higher heights, more talent, better visuals took place. When it comes to the prime restoration of film, pictures, any part of POP CULTURE that has a strong possibility to become extinct, a strong possibility to be even better than before - it is applauded.
THE IMPERFECT VAULT FEATURES Victor Mascaro's Gallery which can be found at Lisa Burks TYPEPAD blog. Mascaro's work on the 1930's actress Jean Harlow is beautiful. There needs to be a new word for beautiful when it comes to his work. Colors are well placed. They bring out the beauty of Harlow in a more realistic way.
Enjoy the work of Victor Mascaro. SEE LINK ABOVE
Jean Grae is that MC who isn't trying to be another. Grae seem to not want to be put on where she is marketed in a way whereas she doesn't recognize herself. Want?
More like WON'T ALLOW. The music is pure, the lyrics reach everyday life for various people walking various life paths. Gimmicks NOT ALLOWED.
Jean Grae is traveling... overseas, in the states, she's in the booth and her flow nice.
The question always arises when there is an MC of this kind of depth. Why isn't she MAJOR MAINSTREAM? First of all, Jean Grae is MAJOR and as far as mainstream we get where the question is trying to go. Grae get's the respect as she should.
In the world of the Industry not everyone is going to get that crossover appeal and it is respectful to each and every artist - they may not want that kind of appeal. Many artist in their world there is no compromise of vision/talent/drive. Not everyone wants the proverbial flashing lights. Can't confirm for certain but for me - Jean Grae doesn't strike many of us that tune in to be the FLASHING LIGHTS CONSUME ME MC.
THE BRIDGE by Jean Grae -hotness. There are too many other songs that get the thumbs up to run them all down. Here's some from the catalog of Grae: Love Thirst, Knock, Gotta Have It, Live 4 U, Keep Living, My Story, Love Song, Super Jean, 8, collaborations with Talib, 9th Wonder, Pharoah and more.

THE VOICE OF NEW YORK -- Angie Martinez is definitely THE VOICE like others.
Impressive is the list Angie Martinez has interviewed and covered. For many it is all about who they cover. Really it is how you cover an artist and the situations to be given more EXCLUSIVES. Exclusives are given most times because of the trust factor.
Reputation is everything in this industry. Angie Martinez is a Professional interviewer.
From being a Legendary Radio Personality at HOT 97, Rap Artist, well connected in the industry circle, forming friendships with some in the industry, keeping it bias- yes Ange, Angie Mar as she is affectionally known is THE VOICE OF NEW YORK for many.
Recently Angie Martinez sat down with Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim giving them the opportunity to address the BEEF that has stamped it's mark in Pop Culture.
While some call the BEEF SILLY it has been one of the main coverages for over six months plus. Angie Martinez handled both interviews very well. There was alot of alleged styled revelations happening, tough words, no backdowns, diss records, response disses. People wanted to know what was really happening from these two females MC's. It was time to get someone on the MIC. In comes Angie Martinez.
THE VOICE OF NEW YORK held her own with both interviews. Not only this interview but Angie has sat down with Jay-Z numerous times, she asks those questions that is on everyone's minds and she stays in control of the interviews. Many could take a listen to the interviews, of course create your own flow but she is a legend doing it well.
