Sean John Clothing

It's not Just a Label, it's a Lifestyle. I really dig the Flash site for Sean "P Puffy Diddy Daddy" Comb's new clothing line. It's a fancy and somewhat restrained use of Flash, but with an UCR (unintentional comedy rating) through the roof. Choose your own sountrack while you explore the catwalk shots. "It's how you freak it baby," indeed.

Someone needs to yank the OC3 out of this web designer's cisco gear and replace it with something more prole.

Quick! Where's the mandatory "why is there advertising on MeFi" post??

it seems like everyone who is already a celebrity is doing more and more to become more of a celebrity, and as cool as a lot of the stuff that they come out with might be, it is also kinda sick i think... such as J. Lo's new fragrance, which she is getting sued over.

Bill Simmons' UCR Scale. The thought of Jonathan Lipnicki meeting Lil Bow Wow on the set of "Like Mike" ... the wedding video of Liza Minnelli and David Getz ... Dontae Jones high-fiving Henry Louis Gates during pregame warmups of a Celtics home game...

For real unintended comedy, I watch Puffy's stupid making the band show on MTV.

I hadn't seen more than five minutes of puffy at any one time before, and had no idea what a jackass he is. He's got an ego bigger than Larry Ellison's, and devotes some portion of each show to pitching his products or his artists. In between segments of him talking in the third person and segments of "what mr. important puffy did today" are scenes of him giving his band members-to-be shit for not looking good, rapping well, or singing off key.

The show (like this site) is complete shit, but I can't help but watch it for the sake of comedy.

i wouldn't say the site is complete shit. yeah, there are problems, but i think it has a lot of unique qualities. i think a lot of people too readily diss flash sites (and most of these sites deserve it) but i love to check out all the new and innovative ways people are using flash today.

Who wants to wait that long for the page to load?

When's Nelly going to bring out his line? I'm sick of wearing clothes from The House of Eliot.

It's a tossup for me. Which mouth-always-slightly-open pop-celebrity annoys me most? Frddie Prinze Jr. or Mr. Diddy? The pose that Diddy-Daddy is striking on the front page of this site - WTF? He looks constipated and slightly stunned, like he just got punched in the groin. Is this supposed to look cool? Or maybe it's just "Haute Coture" (sic, from the developers site).

I'm sure that clown laughs for hours every time the public earnestly starts calling him by his latest oh-so-ridiculous name.

The things you can accomplish with a lot of money and lots of marketing (and no other) talent.

So this 'clothing line'... it's just t-shirts and jeans and stuff?

So this 'clothing line'... you say it vibrates?

See, he's "larger than life." He's so big, he has to bend down to fit in between those lines. You or I, we could probably stand up between the lines, but Puffy's livin' large.

Yeah, here's the deal with Flash - unless it can only be done in Flash, it probably shouldn't be done in Flash. I'm on a T3, I can d/l at over a meg a second, and that page would've taken a full minute to load. No one will wait to see what the Flash is, no matter if it's good or not.

They spelt "Notorious" wrong on all of BIG's tracks. I guess it's not just a lifestyle, it's a lack of edumacation.

Look, I'm LA-based now, so I'm taking whatever work I can get. Diddy pays 3 Benjamins every time I post a link on a community site. Give a mofo a break, already! That's how I freak it, aight?
