non sequitor moment.
so yes, it seems that
god lenny has a, nyc based, 9 person design team called 'kravitz design' (who also need to get their i.t. guy to add photos, SOMETHING, to the website) i couldn't find a lot of examples of the work of kravitz design, but here are a few that i did find: these, shot of his own condo in nyc show the million dollar redesign with the intention to sell at 19 mil and some change (if one of you buys this place, i get commission)
his 'theme' (he does theme rooms. oy.) 'african fantasy penthouse meets las vegas high roller suite with acres of shag carpeting, fur couches, zebra skin chairs and all sorts of phallic and faux elephant tusks' that's just brilliant lenny. all god's creatures being put to good use.
here's the thing. i don't really like lenny's music that much (and oh how i've tried). nor do i care if he has an interior design firm (actually i did care when i found out- but was a bit underwhelmed by the photos). truth be told, i just like to look at him. look at him and soak in all of his undefeatable coolness factor. and i love his lineage. (who didn't love helen willis on the jefferson? and i don't mean you al roker, you can sit down.)
here's lenny doing his best little edie impression. i don't know who looks cooler. but it takes a certain something to get away with towel-as-hair in your daily repertoire.
do you see what i mean? few 46 year old men (that i've seen here in manhattan beach) can pull this look off. tat yourself up men, pierce your every nether region. you will not get away with it like lenny does. here he is contemplating "the zebra fur or the gnu fur?" conundrum. "puddled or to the floor? morrocan poofs, suzanis? no, too last tuesday. maybe, just a nice elephant hoof refashioned into a foot stool, with a red velvet cushion on top to give it that highroller vegas 'pop!''who cares if the guy has talent or not. i'm not even sure that i am 'feeling' his asthetic exactly. he's probably a very nice person with a lot of profound thoughts to share. but really, if i had an extra million, was single and hadn't found the love of my life, kravitz design would be starting the prelim. plans for making my beach bungalow into a hot steamy groto of crazy phallic, african, las vegas love, on monday.
