Well as we come back film review, here is on with a bit of controversy. 

THE GREAT HAPPINESS SPACE: TALE OF A LOVE THIEF  directed by Jake Clennell,produced by Jake Clennell and Iris Jyoung, is the story Issei (22), The Rakkyo Cafe club owner he  has a staff of twenty boys all under his training to become the top escorts of Osaka's underground love scene. During their training, they learn how to dress, how to talk, how to walk, and most importantly, how to fake relationships with the girls who become their source of income. Join us as Osaka's number one host boy takes us on a journey through the complex and heartrenching world of love for sale in the Japanese underground.Written by Iris Jyoung  

I really thought this was a great look at a rare underground culture that the general pop. has no idea exists. Furthermore, the relation of how the who sex industry in Osaka in a sense self medicates it self into thinking "Host Boys" are the answer to their problems was intriguing. I really enjoy how this story was developed and how the characters were themselves explained their own life's desires and opinions. So for THE GREAT HAPPINESS SPACE: TALE OF AN OSAKA LOVE THIEF, I give it 4 stars.

Just last night I was one of many who got to witness something SPECTACULAR, SPECTACULAR, SPECTACULAR and I'm not over hyping it, that's what it was called. Furthermore, it was very SPECTACULAR, OK you got it, but for real the show was that damn good.

My first experince with the famed CHIKOKO Girls was way back in 08' when they did a show for the Fifth Sun's Grand opening party. From then I was hooked, I wasn't always able to attend every show they've had since then, but just the mention of their name had me reminiscing of all the incredible sights of 08's' show.

This time fixed around a BIG TOP or Carnival theme with side show booths, acrobats, animals, and dancers ...oh my this was such a treat and right before Halloween, amazing. So I'm just suggesting to you the next you her about a CHIKOKO Girls show ...GO!!!

Sometimes, I know we get to a place during a project and it seems like there is no more creativity to squuueeezzzeee out of it. Or on the other hand other road blocks get in the way and may be keep us from seeing that the end product is possible with a bit more precise planning and going with what you know.

I know for the 2012 Calender we are working on we went back and forth on whether to do it or not. This was due to attempting such a complex project with so little time, we had to get creative. So what follows is a little video on ways to stay creative ...enjoy the process.

Donald Glover, musically known as Childish Gambino, has just unveiled one of his earlier creations - a remix of Broken Social Scene's "Hotel" off their self-titled third album which was released back in 2005. The refix was created during Glover's college days when he was still crafting tunes under the moniker Page Turner / mc DJ. Give it a spin below and let us know your thoughts on this.

So with another Saturday upon us I want to wish everyone a great weekend. As we get back in the major groove of things when I say WHAT’S GOOD? I really want to know WHAT’S GOOD?  What is HOT! I say that because that is what we are going to share with you our own brand thoughts on what is HOT!  ...Enjoy!

We’ve been hearing a lot about this show called “How to make it in America”

Looks pretty DOPE! ...right?

We’ve been hearing a lot from Kreayshawn off the strength of her viral video hit GUCCI GUCCI, which if you haven’t seen it by now, well... What do you think, does she have longevity in the game, has anyone seen her live, or is she just hype?

Rhianna... need we say anymore more.

We know everyone has an opinion and we want to hear yours so please leave a comment.

I don't know how many of you out there are HIP HOP fans, but I'm sure we can agree that this genre of music and way of life has greatly influenced the current culture of fashion, films, and lifestyle. Furthermore, I'm sure we all can agree that having the BEST of any field, work with the soon to be BEST, or second BEST in the same field, you gotta believe they are gonna create the BEST period ...right?

Well I believe that is what happened when Jay-Z and Kanye West did when they came together to create the album "Watch the Throne". Yes, I know that's old news, the albums been out for awhile now and all the remixes are hitting the blogs, and that's cool. I'm not here to talk about the album so much as I am here to talk about the collaboration.

Love em' or Hate em' Jay-Z and Kanye do numbers, they sell records, they've had longevity in the game and they are working with new talent and passing what they've learned on. Yes, they make a great deal of money, but the fact that they are working to make art, wanting to be the BEST, wanting to make the BEST album is something I can admire. I also believe that, that frame of mind is motivate by true passion and love for what one does and I want that for my brand and I want that for my studio. So what follows is a documentary from the making of "Watch the Throne"...Enjoy.

Passion is what powers you.
Passion is what makes you get up each morning, eager to face the world.
Passion is what keeps you going, no matter how down you may feel.
Passion is power.
If you have passion, you have unlimited power.
If you have passion, you can face any adversity.
If you have passion, you have the power to persuade others to embrace your ideas.
In short, it all begins with passion.


What is it that you would be willing to get up at 3:00 AM for?
What is it that you would be willing to work until 1:00 AM for?
What is it that energizes you?
That’s what you’re passionate about.

That’s what you need to have more of in your life.

We are back! We took some time out from our regular post to develop some extended goals and projects we’d like to achieve before the end of 2011.

In that time off we were able to see what YOU our great fans and followers enjoyed most about what we were doing and bringing to you. To tell you the truth it was an eye opener, so with that said as we develop future content that is both informative and entertaining, topical and creative we’ll transition into more of a hot spot on “what’s cool” ...welcome to ABLE ABE Studios.

We will still update you on our clothing drops and what’s hot in our neck of the woods, as well as upcoming events and recaps. We just felt it was time to expand a little and embrace the culture and design around us, we hope you Enjoy.
