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 […]

Adidas Originals by Jeremy Scott JS Wings Clear

posted by on 30/09/2010

Jeremy Scott is known to be really avant garde however I think he may have slightly, screw it, hugely over stepped the mark with these ones. I mean, is this some sort of joke!  Who on earth is going to wear these!? with a transparent body and wing, I guess who ever wears these can choose the colour of the sneaker according to their socks. The originals collection just gets more and ore weird, I wonder what’s next- more photos..

A received a pleasant surprise when my account manager at work linked me to this site yesterday. It’s a site that caters for your sneakers – Sneaker Weather is your daily, global, weather forecasting website which specifically tailors for your sneakers. The reporters recommend which type of sneaker to wear each day according to weather, solving all your sneaker conundrums. Although I’m not a fan of many of the sneakers on displayed on the site, I do love the idea. Have you checked your Sneaker Weather today?

Kanye West – Lost In The World

posted by on 30/09/2010

After Ye’s amazing redemption in the new XXL Oct issue which is very beautifully written, it really makes you think a bit. Make sure to pick up a copy! So back to the topic, a new West unfinished track has surfaced the net this week a tad early. The track was meant to be featured on Ye’s upcoming album. The track is entitled “Lost In The World“. The song is really deep. As much I dislike the word “deep“. It really is a deep, touching and heartfelt song.  Because of the leak of song Ye has announced via Twitter that he has decided to pass of G.O.O.D. Fridays this week. Listen after the cut.

Film Review | Buried

posted by on 30/09/2010

Today I, along with a few friends, went to go and see the new Rodrigo Cortés directed film Buried which stars Ryan Reynolds. I had no expectations when walking into the theatre because I hadn’t seen any trailers for the film beforehand. I trusted that my friends had good judgement and had selected a film that would be interesting if not entertaining. Let’s just say that next time I will be selecting the film. Read the review when you read on.

Tokyo Taxi Cab Photography

posted by on 30/09/2010

Stunning! I love vibrant colours in photography. I think I have found my own style for my LDN.365 series and it’s most definitely using vivid and somewhat fantasy-esque colors. These photographs aren’t taken by a professional photographer but an economics professor from Italy, Fabio Sabatini. He’s worked some wizardry with these photographs of taxi cabs around cities in Japan. I love the bokeh, focus and the bright street lights in these photographs, have a gander after the jump.

Duck Sauce 'Barbra Streisand' Official Music Video

posted by on 30/09/2010

I’m so far off the radar when it comes to electronic music these days, how have I not about ‘Duck Sauce‘ a producer duo that consists of 2 of my favourite DJ’s Armand Van Helden and A-Trak. ‘New York is the place of opportunity, if there is any place in the world that you want to come to, to be able to make it big or to go after your dreams, it is NYC’ – this is so true, I couldn’t agree more. I felt that in the 8 days I was there. This song and video is beyond bonkers, the video features EVERYone who is relevant in the NYC scene – Yeezy, Pharrell, The Roots, Gloria Estevez and many more. If this song doesn’t make you want to jump around, you’re a loser. Listen/watch on the flipside.

108. Upper James Street | LDN.365

posted by on 30/09/2010

Took this on the last official day of ‘Summer‘. We all know the real summer ended 2 months back in July, well it never really got kicked off and now we’re pretty much into winter. I’ve been walking up and down this road almost every weekday for 7 weeks now as the agency I intern at is located just around the corner from it. I’m going to miss this lifestyle but I promise you, Y&Y will get a hell of a lot more attention. Not that it doesn’t already! All you fresh kids, BAPE is located just on the left of this photograph and the Hideout Store is just passed that Pizza Express sign.

If you’re an Otaku like me, then this will be paradise for you – anime, cosplay girls, sushi from the people behind EAT-JAPAN and much more. Full press release after the cut.

The World's Most Expensive Advent Calender

posted by on 29/09/2010

Now this is an advent calendar I’d like to open. Porsche have unveiled their ultra modern and ultra expensive interpretation of an advent calendar. The sleek piece is to be sold at 1 million USD and with only 1 per continent being sold. It most definitely takes place as the world’s most expensive advent calendar with the treats behind each date unfathomable to most. Check out details of some of the treats that lay behind the individual dates, they are certainly better than chocolate lol.
