Shifting and Shaping

January 2, 2013

moving

 
Well it looks as though that with 2013 in full swing, I’ll be changing things up a bit.  I’ve decided to move A Boy Named Henry to Tumblr and focus on personal style content and media (DIY, music, photos, etc.).  I’ll host my long form writing, strategy and arts-related posts on my personal portfolio site (http://www.joshuahenryjenkins.com/).

Follow me on Tumblr and follow my personal blog for interesting things to come.

Happy New Year!

Com4t Zone

November 24, 2010

 

I cannot lie.  I have amazingly talented friends.  Some find their strength in academia, some in fashion, others in humor, many in the arts.  I look at my friends as this collective group of powerful people creating amazing snapshots positioned in some assembled collage/hodgepodge of bigger-picture-genius.  One of my dearest friends, Marcus White, is a dancer/choreographer with a talent and drive unlike most people I’ve ever met.  I had the great opportunity to see another one of his beautiful creations (a work entitled “Com4t Zone“) this past weekend at the Prime Movers’ concert at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

My lack of technical knowledge of dance is something that makes processing a piece like “Com4t Zone” a bit difficult.  I look immediately for what the meaning SHOULD be as opposed to just letting the piece impact me with respect to my own Rashomon perspective.  Once I did that, I found a particular greatness in the piece that is like my own little gem of connectedness.  Dealing with issues of boundedness, I applied the piece to my own life as a struggle between the forces that give us great comfort but in doing so make us dependent and what happens when we try and free ourselves from that which holds us back, regardless of how much we think we need it.  I suggest you check out the work and leave your thoughts for Marcus.

Photo Booth [Vol. 2]

Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

Check out an a cappella version of “If This World Were Mine” which re-solidifies Marvin Gaye as a world class artist and shows just how criminally underrated Tammi Terrell was as a vocalist.  She understood the strength of subtlety–something that many singers can’t begin to discover.

Peep the clip after the jump.

OMG, Shoes.

July 1, 2010

What’s your secret style weapon?:

“Shoes! I’m all about the shoes! I order a ton of them online and play with my entire wardrobe until I find the right shoe. Unfortunately, so many people get it right from the head until the ankles. The shoe is very important. I can’t even fuck with you if your shoe game is slacking.”  ||  Read the full interview here.

Where you at?

Where you at Natasha Bedingfield?

A new version just popped up on the ‘net of Brandy’s song “Fall,” which appeared on her last and highly unnoticed album “Human.”  To my surprise, the song featured vocals from Natasha Bedingfield, who has been relatively missing-in-action from the music scene.  Hope this is a nice hint that Ms. Bedingfield would be returning to us soon.

Rihanna on the set of “Rude Boy” (2010)

Grace Jones on the set of “Vamp” (1986)

Is it safe to assume Rihanna is molding her career after Ms. Jones’?
