I just want to take this time to thank you all for supporting me this past year. I am proud to say that I am in the process of redesigning and launching my privately owned “Crush Velvet Club” website. Though wordpress’ hosting has provided me many opportunities, I have long awaited for the day I could call CVC my own. As you may know I have co-founded Photos From Velvet LLC. and my staff and I (my patnas and me) will be owning and maintaining the website and future business ventures. Please don’t be mad, I assure you that the wait will be worth it. Again, thank you for your support and understanding. As soon as I am ready to relaunch, trust me I will make it known to the world that CVC/PFA=PFV is ready for take off! Until then, please enjoy past posts and videos. I love you! God Bless. #Love #Peace #Velvet

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” John 14:27

Remember that your greatest enemy is yourself, Buddha once said that in order to obtain peace and blessings, one must gain control of his/her mind through discipline. Our biggest fears, the pain, the anxiety, it is all a figment, and once we realize that our minds are the greatest weapon on this earth, then we’ve taken the first step towards GREATNESS! I classify my mind as a WME, Weapon of Mass Empowerment….and I am about to blow. BOOM!

This post may be the most simple post I have ever written for this site. It’s simple………enjoy life and have fun. I came across a video showing a guru who claimed to have the secret to a successful life, but I noticed the video was only 1:30 seconds long. My right eyebrow instantly raised out of curiosity, surely this would be a 3 week miniseries, I mean for God sake we’re talking about the secret to life itself. So I click in utter disbelief, expecting to see a red bar below showing all of the dislikes, or I thought I was going to get “Rick Rolled”. But sure enough this well seasoned gentleman, with a beard as long as Aron’s, pops onto the screen, looks into the lens, and simply explains…… The reason why so many people cant enjoy life is because they constantly live in fear. They either fear what is to come, or they fear what has happened in the past. This fear begins to dictate people’s actions and ultimately gain control of their lives through subconscious fears. The saddest part is that these people fear what they cannot control. You have no input on what shall come exist, or what has existed before. The one thing that you have absolute total control over is NOW! THE PRESENT! CURRENTLY! (okay I think you get my point)

Acting and thinking in the present gives you the power to overcome all fear, and living fearless is the secret to a successful life. You’re Welcome by the way, I could’ve kept that to myself.








“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope… and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” ~Robert F. Kennedy

Any person with half of a brain will tell you that you have to know where you came from before you know where you’re going. In other words you have to know you’re history, before you can even begin to imagine a future. In my future I see lots of peak lapels and velvet slippers, so I’ve made it my duty to know the history of men’s fashion before I dare consider myself myself a part of it’s future. So with that being said, every so often i’ll share a book from my personal sartorial library. This week is the classic book “Style & The Man” by the great Alan Flusser himself. If you don’t know who he is…….do your homework.

Grip of Conformity
“Live.Life.Free.Spirit.Love.Liberate.” are the words that I’ve placed under my banner, but more than just words, these are the principles that I’ve grown to love and adorn. I placed periods in between each word to express a strong sense of declaration, each word stands on its own, each word has something to offer. Collectively these words become an ideal way of life, living free, loving the blessings that are bestowed upon us, and our spirits pure. I also know that anything pure will, no doubt, soon be questioned, ridiculed, badgered, and left with dirty finger prints that turn into open wounds. The hands that left these finger prints are the hands of a murderer, rough, battered, with the blood of thousands dripping from its finger nails. These are the hands that nailed Jesus to the cross, these are the same hands that pulled the trigger in Memphis, these are the very same hands that helped Eira Maghuyop tie that knot before she hung herself. I’ve felt the touch of these hands, cold and strong, they pointed me towards a life of hurt and pain, they have also pointed towards the thought of my life not worth living. These hands ball up into fists when they see the words in my banner, they give the middle finger to liberated individuals, and throw punches at happiness. They try to choke the neck emancipation, and gauge the eyes of vision, knowing that these would eventually loosen the strong grip that its held for centuries. These hands give a thumbs up to the idiots who kill over a pair of Jordans, these hands count millions of dollars gained from music videos filled with degrading lyrics and superficial amenities. These have caused many a mother/father to cry, they have covered the ears of those who listen for deliverance, and have shielded the mouths of those who speak it. The hands of conformity has done unspeakable damage to generation after generation, only a few are blessed to have escaped its grasp. Whats even worse is that now these hands just sit back and twiddle it’s thumbs, because they no longer have to work. It no longer has to pull a trigger, slap, point and laugh, or punch, because now we do it to ourselves. I just want to put these hands in cuffs, and cut off one finger at a time. I’ll use my tongue as the two-edged sword. If you ever feel that these hands are pointing towards you…..I stretch out my hands to you, just as God stretched his to me.
