Edgar Davids Street Soccer Tour 2010

posted by on 24/05/2010

Ya’ll remember him? The small footballer with the Bob Marley braids and the futuristic looking orange protective eyewear. I always wanted a pair of those when I played football but never knew where to find them. Anyway Edgar Davids and his team Street Legends are going on a tour of a few countries playing against the best street football teams from each of those cities, after the cut for episodes from Amsterdam and London.

Photoshoot Frenzy

posted by on 24/05/2010

So after a night of free drinks and drama at the G-Shock party, I ended up waking up on Noni’s couch in her bachelorette pad. Woke up due to the damn heat but was soon to be in the middle of photoshoot. A pleasant surprise to say the least. Images after the cut.

Chris Brown – Deuces (feat. Tyga) Music Video

posted by on 24/05/2010

The video is dope. The song is definitely a grower; I didn’t like it at first but now after a few plays of the video, I’m hooked. Chris Brown’s dancing kills it as always and I just love the way it is shot in B&W; the tattoos and the dancing in the tunnel look ill. I’ll add their mixtape to this week’s Eargasms post, it’s surprisingly good. More videos like this please, less of the typical sh*t. Video on the flipside.

Post Holiday Blues

posted by on 22/05/2010

I came back on Monday from our 8 day trip to New York and I’ve missed the city like crazy since. I think I spent 3 days at home moaning about how I wanted to go back. So I just strolled around home, watching TV, browsing the internet and sleeping. My jetlag was pretty bad as I was up till 6am every damn day and waking up in the afternoon. It was a strange few days, I had no motivation to go to any sort of networking/socialising event. I kept myself hidden in my house. More after the cut.

G-Shock Press Party Recap

posted by on 22/05/2010

So last night I headed down to the G-Shock Press event with a few of our connect, no Yang as he’s still living it up in Ohio. The event was a bit meh to be honest, I wasn’t really going to go but Noni manage to persuade me to get my jetlagged ass off my bed and make an effort to network. The actual press presentation was pretty cool, a lot of free booze and a BBQ set up in the garden behind Truman Brewery. Some of the watches on show were DOPE, especially the main one above. More after the cut.
