Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

Chiddy Bang. They’re pretty much amazing so I’ll kick start this week’s Eargasms with them. Google them. They will be big this year, mark my words. Ya’ll know what to do.

Masked By A Second Skin

posted by on 14/02/2010

Yen and I were flicking through some fashion magazines yesterday whilst she was overdosing on coffee when I stumbled across this dope editiorial in  my favourite magazine at the mo Dazed & Confused. The styling with the masked bodysuit caught my attention first as it reminded me of Roshach from the Watchmen comic novel.  Every look is paired excellently and cohesively and the dark black & white photography is beautifully captured by photographer Kacper Kasprzyk. The patterns and bodysuits create something un-human, somewhat like a monster. More photos after the cut.

At this age I think most of us who work and study will almost certainly be working in retail, and if your a dude you know how frustrating it can be! Here is what I love about retail..

Chiddy Bang @ YoYo

posted by on 13/02/2010

Yen&Yong and I ventured down to YoYo this week to go see Chiddy Bang. If you haven’t heard of them before they are Hip-Hop duo from the land of the Fresh Prince himself, Philly. The duo comprises of two 19 year old college students Chidera ‘Proto’ Anamege (the MC) and Noah ‘Xaphoon Jones’ Beresin ( Producer & DJ). I first heard of them when homie Felix posted about them over at BTEF. Check out the link for their songs.  Remember their name people, I’m pretty sure they will blow up this year. HipHop is still very much alive. More after the cut.

Puma Hard Chorus – Truly Madly Deeply

posted by on 12/02/2010

This is pure genius. Puma decided to get a bunch of football hooligans together to sing Savage Garden’s classic ‘Truly, Madly, Deeply’ as they will be missing Valentine’s Day to go watch their one and only love in life, Football. ‘They want you to be in their arms, You want to be in the stands‘ and crap, watching this has got me listening to the original and I’m not into the whole Valentine’s Day thing. After the jump for the video.

New Sneaker Brand: Ateliers Arthur

posted by on 12/02/2010

Ateliers Arthur is a new sneaker brand, debuting their fall 2010 collection. These mirage of new comers are rafted with full grain calfskin leather, and are set to retail some time this year. From what I can tell, their high tops look like a hybrid of high fashion boots and regular hi-top sneakers- a good mix! Ateliers Arthur is a new sneaker brand, debuting their fall 2010 collection; be on the lookout for these babies later on this year and more information will be available very soon. Some more photos..

Nike – Human Chain Advert

posted by on 12/02/2010

When it comes to advertising, Nike always go all out. This latest advert ‘Human Chain’ is no exception, it is stunning visually. The video urges you to push yourself that one extra step forward whilst looking back at yourself a split-second ago which creates a ‘chain’ of events. The star-studded video features Maria Sharapova, Sergio Aguerro, Deron Williams and Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson and a few others. Real dope.

Summer Trends – Native Shoes

posted by on 11/02/2010

Crocs are ugly, I’d never be seen in them. It’s like me dating an ugly fat chick, it’s just not going to happen. Native shoes are a fusion of your timeless classic models (Clarks Wallabees, Converse Chucks & Vans Eras) with Crocs. I think they are perfect summer shoes as last summer, I found myself wearing vans slip-ons while on holiday in India but they were totally messed up by the sand. Definitely one to watch for the summer, especially if you’re going somewhere warm with beaches. I’ll probably end up getting a few pairs to color-coordinate! more photos on the flipside.

This week the Throwback tunes we chose are by Craig David. This guy used to be the one back in them school times, his tunes were on point- don’t think you wer’nt skankin hard when you heard ‘Re-ee-wind’ when you went raving!

He’s currently working on a new album right now hopefully he drops some good material and makes a good comeback but until then..enjoy
