Recap: Nick Cannon's Bleu Magazine Cover Party

I was invited to celebrate the release of Nick Cannon's "Man of the Year" Cover for Bleu Magazine last night at Bar Basque in Manhattan. It was a great evening filled with great people from the fashion & entertainment industry. It was a great prequel to all the fun that will be taking place at fashion week in a few days. Nick Cannon spent the entire evening on the 1's & 2's at his own party, I wasn't complaining though because Nick was a great DJ. I still have yet to hear DJ Solange and DJ Yeezy World Peace but I think DJ Nick Cannon might be the next celebrity DJ to give them a run for their money, he had the place rockin with classic hip-hop and new jack swing tracks. Make sure you go pick up that copy of Bleu Magazine.

Movie Review: "Man On A Ledge"

Over the weekend, I went to see the new movie "Man On A Ledge". I did not want to see this movie initially because I felt that the title was too basic. I decided to practice what I preach and not judge a book by it's cover, and besides there was nothing else new playing this weekend at the box office so I didn't have many options to choose from. The movie starts with the man standing on the ledge, my first thoughts were "Welp, that's the whole movie right there, he just got on the ledge! Movie Over!" I got more than I bargained for, it was actually a very enjoyable film. I loved that the movie was set in my favorite city, New York City! The film also had lots of theatrics and techy scenes, kinda reminded me of the mission impossible films. Overall, Man on the Ledge is definitely worth going to the box office to see. I rate this movie 4 out of 5 stars, Terry McFly Approved!

An ex-cop turned con threatens to jump to his death from a Manhattan hotel rooftop. The nearest New York Police officer immediately responds to a screaming woman and calls dispatch. More Officers arrive with SWAT and tactical command along with fire-fighters. The police then dispatches a female police psychologist personally requested to talk him down from the ledge. However, things aren't as straightforward and clearcut as they appear to be.

Movie Review: Red Tails

I just left the premiere of Red Tails and it was far much better than I expected. The film has a great African American cast of actors, I love how the young veteran actors play commanding roles and the younger actors play rookie characters. Red Tails is more than just an entertaining film, it's a history lesson, which is why everyone is encouraged to go see it. The film has its moments where you can tell there was a lack of funding but it does not ruin the immersion, Red Tails is one of the first films that didn't put me to sleep. If you know me then you know I sleep in every movie, lol. I enjoyed every single dog fight of Red Tails, and I'm not just saying that because some of my friends had roles. Each character has their very own unique personality, one of the lesser known fan favorites will most definitely be Joe "Lightning" Little, portrayed by actor David Oyelowo. I also loved the styling of the wardrobe in this film, I'm now on the search for a vintage pilot hat with goggles as well as a leather jacket with sheep lining. Red Tails is definitely "Terry Mcfly Approved!", a must see film for the entire family. I will be going to see it again, WE FIGHT! WE FIGHT! WE FIGHT!

Red Tails is a film about a crew of African American pilots in the Tuskegee training program, having faced segregation while kept mostly on the ground during World War II, they are called into duty under the guidance of Col. A.J. Bullard (Terrance Howard).

Terry's 7 Days With The Chevy Sonic

Last month, I attended an event with Chevy & Klout (click here if you don't remember). Chevy was so pleased with how much I enjoyed the car that they decided to send me one for 7 days. I fell in love with this car the first day I had it, which is pretty major because I am not a fan of hatchbacks. I was pleasantly surprised by the roominess inside the vehicle because I am 6'4, me and small cars do not get along. The car is exactly what it was designed to be, FUN & CONVENIENT. Throughout the week you may have noticed me constantly tweeting the #ChevySonic hastag , now my actions will finally be explained for those of you that may have been confused by this. Here is a breakdown of my day to day activities with the car to give you an idea of how I put it to the test.

Day:1 Car Arrives

This day was major because it was my birthday and I had brand new car to roam the town in. The day was filled with pampering and party transportation so this was possibly the busiest day out of them all. I filled the car up with friends and it seemed to fit 5 people quite comfortably. It was fairly easy to find a parking space in NYC because of the car's convenient size.




Meet the 2012 Chevy Sonic

The Sonic is Chevrolet's newest small car. It was developed first and foremost to be fun to drive, along with the unexpected ride and handling characteristics. It blends the affordability and practicality of a small car with athletic and agile performance. It's a leader in interior roominess and versatility. This small car has 10 standard air bags, IIHS's Top Safety Pick. Find out more about the vehicle on www.chevrolet.com/sonic ....also stay tuned for my hand's on review of the Sonic.


  •   Available efficient Ecotec 1.4L turbo engine rated at an estimated 138 horsepower (103 kW) – 18 horsepower (14 kW) more than Ford Fiesta – that delivers competitive fuel economy. It’s the same engine used in the Chevrolet Cruze in a smaller, lighter package for a greater feeling of performance 
  • Standard Ecotec 1.8L engine paired with five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmissions    
  • Ecotec 1.4L turbo available with a six-speed manual transmission 
  • Ride and handling tuned by Chevy Corvette engineers; standard electronic power steering and StabiliTrak electronic stability control with rollover sensing 
  • Sedan model offers segment-best trunk capacity that is greater than most compact cars; hatchback and sedan offer better rear-seat roominess than Ford Fiesta. With a rear seat that folds nearly flat, the Sonic hatchback has greater cargo capacity than Fiesta 
  • Connectivity includes OnStar with six months of Turn-by-Turn navigation. Available features include XM Satellite Radio, USB and Bluetooth functionality and MyChevrolet mobile application with OnStar MyLink vehicle connectivity
  •   Remote start, heated front seats and sunroof, all rarities in the segment
  • Comprehensive safety features include 10 standard air bags, antilock brakes, electronic brake force distribution, brake assist and OnStar with Automatic Crash Response.

Ronnie Fieg x Quoddy “Maine Woodsman Boots”

This is a very interesting take on the Moccasin boot, I really like the use of materials on this one.  As always Kith bring you quality for your money, I need a pair of these in my collection ASAP.
Featuring ten lacquered eyelets strung together with 72” rawhide laces, the boot provides various lacing options to be styled for any wardrobe and any season. The two-toned colorways feature a fused canvas and leather silhouette with other details including a deerskin bellow tongue to keep out debris and maintain warmth without bulk, a Vibram sole designed expressly for Quoddy and a full handcrafted design. As on all Quoddy shoes, the soles are stitched to the shoe bottom rather than glued so that they maintain flexibility and last longer. The collaborative boots come in two colors of Red and Blue and will be offered in limited editions of 24 pieces per colorway at Kith NYC, Kith BK and online at KithNYC.com. Be the first to grab a pair starting January 6th at 11a.m. EST for $450 USD.
