Lazy Oaf And Looney Tunes Collabo

Way way way, way back in the day the Looney Tunes were EVERYWHERE. You remember the Looney Tunes right? They had a crew that included Taz, Marvin the Martian, Tweety Bird, my dude Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and a string of other members.  They had a show and enough merchandise to fill a warehouse and at one time or another Warner Bros. did host their merchandise in a Maryland warehouse to make distributing things to retailers a little easier.  I’m sure that wasn’t the only one though. I would sit and watch Bugs Bunny on tv like he was my boo and he was shooting in the gym. I tried to support everything he did, visit him at the theme parks, wear his shirts, and a watch. I had a big pillow that Warner Bros. still makes (I checked their site) and I even had a Looney Tunes bed set but unfortunately it wasn’t one for Bugs.  It was a pink Tweety Bird set and I asked for it repeatedly because I didn’t want it to sell out like the other one I had my eye on in a Fingerhut magazine. They could’ve at least had Lola you know?! I’m still torn between baby Looney Tunes and The Peanuts as far as kiddie bedrooms are concerned.


The one I had my eye one. I was never fond of Tweety but my cuzzo loved that bird sooo much lol

My set looked something like this. I don't know where mine is but Google helped me find it online.

Anywho, on to more current cartoon fashion affairs. Lazy Oaf, a London based clothing line has collaborated with Looney Tunes and I’m trying to be all in the mix while I’m still at an age where I can get away with wearing cartoon apparel without my peers side-eying me. Hopefully I can find my old stuff but if not Etsy and Ebay have a few things and if I can’t find what I want on those sites well there’s always this collabo. Take a look…

Herbs 101: Flavoring Beyond Salt and Pepper

I reblogged this post from Life & Dim Sum for those of you who may be new to cooking and looking to add more flavor to some of your dishes.


The only time salt & pepper should be the only seasoning you add to a meal is when you’re making a steak or a beef burger. Other than that, you need to make sure your dish has plenty of love(aka flavor).

The best way to build complex & distinct flavor in a dish is by adding herbs.


I prefer fresh herbs but in a pinch, dried will do as well. Just note that you will always need to add more fresh herbs than dried herbs(2-3 times as much) to a recipe to achieve the same level of flavor.

What are my favorite herbs? Well, I’m glad you asked.herbs0

1. Thyme thyme

This one is my absolute fav! I use it on chicken, beef & pork. In sauces, Dominican style rice & pigeon peas and literally in everything. Dried or fresh, anytime I’m cooking and feel like something is missing, I…

Weekend Reads

Lemon Ricotta Waffles

1. LifeAndDimSum cooked up some Lemon Ricotta Waffles and I’m actually thinking of making them this weekend using the recipe she provided! How about using honey instead of syrup? Warm honey, lemon, and waffles… yum.

2. What should you be watching this weekend? “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete” opens in theaters today. I’ve been patiently waiting for this since I read about it on the Sundance website. George Tillman, Jr., the director behind Soul Food, Men of Honor, Barbershop, and Notorious was said to have fallen in love with Michael Starrbury’s script for this movie and thankfully he was in a position to bring it to life.  The film is told through Mister’s point of view for the most part. His mother does more than dabble in drugs and after she’s apprehended by the police, Mister and Pete are left alone to face more than any child should just like some do in reality.

3. I said this fall I would purchase my first pair of Uggs so I went to the site and found that they launched a customization feature. They’re letting customers modify the classic short boot and/or the furry slipper. I doubt anyone can make that slipper look like it’s worth spending $110 on but hey give it your best shot. The short classic boot is $220 and you can makeover the boot, bindings, heel, and sole. Click here to get started! You can’t have names sewn on or anything but that’s what craft stores are for 🙂

Made for Tv: “House of Versace”


Lifetime TV is at it again with another movie you don’t want to miss. Remember when you would spend your days on the couch their movies? Oh, you still do that? Hehe, well that’s okay because this Saturday you won’t be alone… at least for a few hours. This Saturday, October 5th at 8 p.m. Eastern, you can watch Gina Gershon in the role of Donatella Versace. “House of Versace” stars Gina Gershon in full pout and platinum blond wig as Donatella Versace. The summary on the site states that the movie chronicles “”Donatella’s inspiring triumph over tragedy by carrying on her brother’s legacy.” Following the movie’s premiere, at 10 p.m., Lifetime will air an hour-long documentary, “Versace: Beyond the Headlines.” The documentary is said to provide an in-depth look at Gianni Versace’s start and rise to fame and feature interviews with those who knew him best.

Will  you be watching?
