A Furry Fall

WED-furhood

Fur: sinfully soft & extremely warm. This Fall 2013 designers had no shame in using fur. Lots of garments will have lots of fluffy fur. Fur is something that is elegant and only a true fashion lover knows the “true meaning” of fur. If you aren’t into real fur (which is totally understandable) then def go for the fake fur option. Whether its real or fake (by fake we mean well done) then you can have a glamorous and elegant look to go out in the city. If you are just getting into fashion or aren’t as daring, do a simple by having it on a purse. If you are a fashion diva then you already know to be rocking coats with fur.

Steve Aoki actually IS NOT a DJ?

Steve-Aoki-starland-ballroom-nj

What.. is.. this?

Steve Aoki expands on his “experiment”

“I wanted to explore the fickle nature of popular music fads by devising a public and onstage persona that could push the bounds of ridiculous behaviour to an extreme and still manage to get away with it.”

“For me it’s about trying to be as absurd and laughable as possible without any of the audience being aware of, or being willfully ignorant of, the sheer absurdity of what they’re witnessing. The EDM explosion for me was the perfect vehicle to explore that idea because it seemed like that audience were capable of mindlessly accepting the most crass gimmicks and personalities,” explained Aoki.

“I kept adding more and more unnecessary vulgarity to the show, bright flashing lights, topless performances, silly hair, Indian headdresses, trampolines. I kept thinking that at any moment people would realise that this was no longer dance music but that it was an absurdist pantomine and the game would be up. But no-one has ever even suspected.”Steve Aoki Record Release Event Celebrating "Wonderland"

“Even when I started throwing cake into the audience, which I intended as a not-so-subtle reference to the circus that my show had become, the audience just lapped it up. No-one thought to themselves ‘Oh look, he’s started throwing cakes into people’s faces like a fucking clown, surely this can’t be legitimate dance music?’.”

Spokesman for the A.C.P.A., Arnold Trumball, described his admiration for Aoki’s project, “It’s a tour-de-force in method acting. He’s been living as this consciously asinine DJ for the last 15 years without ever breaking character. Can you imagine living every waking moment as the DJ character Steve Aoki? Churning out shit track after shit track. Attending shit gig after shit gig?” questioned Trumball. “Not being able to hold your hands up to even your closest friends and admit ‘my career as a DJ is an absurd joke’. That’s real dedication to your art.”

Well, I’d have to say. I did fall for the whole article but indeed it’s all false. Yes, It would have been by far the best scandal to hit EDM ever, but it does make you think doesn’t it? We do idolize these DJ’s and pedestal them as if they were actually dancing/singing performers. But new age music, its all about bigger and crazier then the last performance. Take Miley, newest rumor is she’s having Juicy J’s baby? That’s false as well. But as long as your in the headlines you’ll always be in our minds. It’s all strategy!

Steve Aoki

Directly from Aoki’s website is quoted below. You can’t always believe what you read on the internet kids!

“LOL!! Did you got fooled by this fake “story” on Wunderground.ie?”

“My crew and I had a good laugh about it when it was first posted (more at how bad the joke was than it actually being funny), but unfortunately some of my fans thought it was real.”

“· I never said any of this and these quotes are completely untrue. Dance music is my love, is my passion, is my life. I live for my fans and I take my art very seriously.
· I’d hate for any up-and-coming artists to see this post, take it to heart and believe it has any shred of truth or legitimacy. Dance music is a serious art form and we’ve been working very hard as an international community to push our voice and message to the masses.
· This story does the opposite and in no way should my fans believe it to be true at all. I love you all very much and you’re the reason why I do this for a living. You’re the reason why I push myself to become a better artist and performer and continue to take my show to a higher level.”

Well played.. but guess what Steve Aoki? Your trending! And that fake article just raised your popularity level!
