Who runs the world??

Some chick named Amber decided to give us a lesson in feminism or the current social status of women all over the world, in response to Beyonce's "illusion" that girls run the world. And might I add chick ran it down. It appears she has obviously learned something from those sociology/women's studies classes and she's decided to pass along that knowledge to "impressionable young women" and men for that matter. Great food for thought! So check out the video.

Look Into My Eyes...

or eyelids rather.
The Lion King

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Check out this amazing Disney-inspired eye make-up. Katie Alves is a make-up artist who has transformed scenes from Disney classics, using eyelids as her canvas. Head over to to see more of Katie's mystical designs.

These two animal/nature inspired designs are admirable as well.

Music Monday

Diddy & Dirty Money - Someone to Love Me

Feeling this song at the moment. I like Mary J's vocals on this track for the remix, but I can't stand Lil Wayne so I settled for this version, which is just as good.

Captured: Thunder's Best

The Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are blessing the cover for the latest issue of Dime Magazine.

Dime chopped it up with the cover boys to talk about their NBA experiences and their incredible 2010-11 season.

"In the previous 63 issues of Dime, we have never featured a duo on the cover. It never made sense. But when we started talking about who we wanted on the cover of Dime #64, the names Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were inextricably linked. Sure you could make an argument for LeBron and D-Wade, Kobe and Pau, or STAT and ’Melo as the NBA’s best one-two punch, but all three of these duos are at least 10 years older than KD and Russ. Aptly titled “Generation Now,” the cover story examines just that... And after spending time with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook for our cover shoot, we know that the league is in good hands."

Check out the issue.

D. Rose graced the cover last month and Dime was already declaring him the MVP, which wasn't very hard to predict. Check out last month's issue.

2011 NBA MVP

Its official! Derrick Rose was awarded the 2011 NBA MVP award yesterday afternoon in . The National Basketball Association announced today that Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose is the winner of the 2010-11 Kia Most Valuable Player Award. At 22 years old, Rose is the youngest MVP in NBA history.

Back in September at Bulls Media Day while being interviewed by the press, Derrick stated, "The way I look at it, why can't I be the MVP in the league? Why can't I be the best player in the league? I don't see why not. I work hard, I dedicate myself to the game and sacrifice a lot of things at a young age.

And he was right!

Rose's stats for the season:
Season Team G ...GS .MPG .FG% .3p% ...FT% ..OFF DEF ..RPG APG SPG BPG TO PF PPG

Congratulations to Derrick! He definitely deserves it.

It's not over yet, though. Derrick and the Bulls take on the Atlanta Hawks at the United Center tonight at 5pm pt on TNT. ATL leads this series 1-0. Hopefully, the Bulls can even the score, especially if they want a shot at the Eastern Conference finals.

Scottie Pippen tweeted: "MVP MVP MVP... make it loud tonight at the UC"
