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 […]

Cee-Lo – 'F**k You' Typography Music Video

posted by on 24/08/2010

I’ve been rinsing this song since last Thursday when it dropped, the video gave me have a typogasm (a typographical sexual eruption) as my love  for kinetic typography videos has no limit. It’s very well made and the song goes perfectly with it. What makes me like it so much is the lyrical content aimed at gold diggers, SMH at ya’ll. Also I’ve never heard the f-word sang so well in a song, I wonder what they’d replace with for radio, stuff you? video after the cut.

Facebook Places Privacy Update

posted by on 23/08/2010

I know Yang wrote a post on  Facebook places a few days back but I thought I should give some people a heads up on the new privacy settings in detail. Ya’ll know how Facebook Places works by ‘checking-in’ to places where you are and with the current privacy settings you can be tagged by others who are on your friends list. This could possibly end friendships/relationships if you lie to someone about your location. So without further a do, I’ll give you a guide what you have to change after the cut.

Lauryn Hill Back With ‘Repercussions’

posted by on 23/08/2010

First of all I’d like to say welcome back Lauryn! Although Miss Hill hasn’t put an album out in over a decade her new track repercussions has leaked its way onto the Billboard Hot 100.  The soulful sassy song is the ultimate summer chill out track or the song you play on those really long motorway drives. Hopefully the positive reactions to the song will encourage Lauryn to release an album in the near future. I for one cannot wait to review it! I know the songs been out for a few weeks but listen to it after the cut.

70. Bobby Moore Statue – Upton Park | LDN.365

posted by on 23/08/2010

I headed down briefly to Upton Park earlier today to take a photograph of this statue. It’s the only moment of glory the England side has ever had, the only time we’d actually won a trophy! I’m sure all of you have seen the famous 1966 photograph of Bobby Moore and team celebrating their World Cup win and now you’ve seen the statue. I tried to give the photograph a warm sepia-like feeling and think it turned out well.

Restaurant Review: Cinnamon Kitchen

posted by on 23/08/2010

Earlier this week we headed down to Cinnamon Kitchen in Devonshire Square for a 3-course meal and of course to talk business. Initially I wasn’t mean to be attending this review dinner but DJB pulled out because the team he supports (United, whack!) were playing that night. A 3-course meal and drinks after a hard days work? I wasn’t going to pass on such an offer and 3 hours later, I didn’t regret the decision I had made. More after the cut.

Get To Know | Chivalrous Culture

posted by on 22/08/2010

Chivalrous Culture is definitely a brand that all should get to know. Following in the footsteps of his big sisters Daniel ‘Diggy’ Simmons has turned his hand to becoming a sneaker designer. Chivalrous Culture is his creation, and what a creation they are. The Hamachi men’s sneakers are the first set of kicks to be released from the brand and will go on sale some time in September (release date could change, I will update should any changes occur). Make sure you take a look at the sneakers on the flipside as I have a feeling they will be the next big thing (featured in six different colourways).

Eddie Colla's Rebellious Stencil Artwork

posted by on 22/08/2010

Meet Eddie Colla, a stencil-based artist who produces work that is urban, sexy and somewhat rebellious due to it’s graffiti-esque vibe. The Oakland-based artist produces work that are full of energy, and inspire us make movements and not just sit at home and laze about. I love how he incorporates city backgrounds behind his stencils of people, the contrast is dope. The detail in some of the stencils is crazy, must have taken ages to cut out. You can tell he’s quite the rebel with the messages he’s trying to get across. More of his work after the cut.
