WTAPS and Dr. Martens joined forces to remake the latter's classic 8-eye boots. The regular shoe lace method is changed to wrapping around the ankle. They are sold mostly in Dr.Martens colors and availiable at WTAPS retailer.
I honestly thought it was part of my duty to support the "It Gets Better." campaign, dedicated to all the young men who committed suicide in the country during these past few months. This goes out to all gay, lesbian, bi-sexual,trans-sexual, any different sexual preferences then straight. I know it's hard out there for you guys, living in a world were people are so judgemental, when they don't have the right to be. Getting bullied and called names. It's a very, very awful thing to go through. I wanna say it gets better. The last thing you want to do is commit suicide because if it fails you'll regret it. The best thing to do is just rise. Rise against all the hatred and be who you are. I'm trying my best to keep my mini speech clean, because if I had a choice this note wouldn't be pretty,at all. I would tell you to tell those bully's to shove it somewhere, but i'm not. I'm telling you that things will get better in time, all you have to do is just rise.
Sincerly, Anita Minniefield

“MODELING IS MORE THEN TAKING PICTURES TO ME, IT’S A STORY I WANT TO SHARE WITH THE WORLD.” ~ Jamaal Singleton
These are the words said by model and my dear friend Jamaal Q. Singleton. A couple of weeks ago I was able to ask a few questions about him and the model world.
ISHOURAI: Hi, Jamaal. Well since we are already acquainted I would like you to tell the people your full name?
JAMAAL: Jamaal Q. Singleton.
ISHOURAI: And you are from Chester right?
JAMAAL: Chester, Pa. A city known for its negative acts but rarely spoken of its positive out looks.
ISHOURAI: That’s the same thing I always say. People are quick to acknowledge us for our bad and not our good. It’s sad. Moving on, what made you choose modeling?
JAMAAL: Honestly, I didn’t choose modeling, it chose me. I look at modeling as my story that I want everyone to read.
ISHOURAI: Cool, cool. So what are you trying to bring to the modeling world?
JAMAAL: I can’t really say what I’m trying to bring or what I’ve brought to the modeling world,
But I can say how modeling brought me into me.
ISHOURAI: How modeling brought you into you?
JAMAAL: Modeling lets me be whatever I want to be. All the dreams I have I can live them threw pictures. It also gives me confidence.
ISHOURAI: I say the same thing when it comes to me designing. I get so excited when I see a finish sketch and my confidence goes sky high. Don’t you love being a creative human being? *smiles*
JAMAAL: I really do. Modeling let’s me express myself in many different forms.
ISHOURAI: It really does. Speaking of expressing yourself, do you have any other talents?
JAMAAL: Yes. I am talented in other arts. I am an inspiring Choreographer, and I’m naturally gifted in dancing. It’s my drug. I plan one day to dance aside some of the best artist.
ISHOURAI: Maybe you could teach me a few moves. *laughs* That’s great though. So what would you like to bring to the future?
JAMAAL: I want to bring to the future “JAMAAL Q. SINGLETON”. I just want to inspire others to follow their dreams. It can happen if you make it happen, nothing comes to you unless you get lucky. *laughs*
ISHOURAI: You are right about that one. Are there any other quotes or words of inspiration you go by?
JAMAAL: One word “TRIUMPH”
ISHOURAI: Triumph and why?
JAMAAL: Well I chose triumph for a simple meaning it’s self. If you look it up it should be a picture of me under it. *laughs*. No, but the word means victorious, ambitious, and leader.
ISHOURAI: Victorious, ambitious and leader, that you are. Not only a model but you are a dancer. You are something special and I wish you nothing but the best in life. I appreciate you giving me the opportunity and your time to interview you.
Hi you guyz!..I'm not a quirky teen anymore..more like a young woman with so much on her hands..Had bit of a image change..I still have my edge though. I still enjoy the Fashion and Music world to the extreme.
