A few weeks back I posted about Converse‘s new campaign to celebrate UK‘s music culture, to further this they have joined forces with Vice to create a tour. They want ya’ll to be there and take part in a series of five parties held in indie venues in the following cities: Nottingham, Bristol, Sheffield, Liverpool and London. More info on the flipside.
One of the city’s largest and oldest hotels, The Langham is most definitely grand. I would be lying if I said that I have stayed here, it’s where most celebrities stay. A little bird once told me Rihanna stayed here and walked down the road to Topshop without being recognised. Don’t ask me why I know this, I just do. No stalker.
Sportswear giant Nike have released 2 dope commercials in the past 24 hours – one featuring the so-called selfish traitor, LeBron James and the other featuring his Miami Heat team mate, Dwyane Wade. The first advert is pure genius from W+K; if you haven’t been keeping up with Basketball then you won’t know that LeBron switched from Cleveland Cavaliers to Miami Heat over the summer, a lot of people expected him to move to NYC. By a lot, I mean even Mayor Bloomberg launched a campaign to get the star playing in his state. More after the cut.
As you should know, in two years time London will be hosting the next Olympic games at the newly built Olympic Stadium thats been dropped in the middle of Straford. In order to run the games, they’ve been taking applications for people to volunteer; these positions are varied in that you could be taken on to do anything from ushering to media and press releated posts. It’s a really good way to make the most of the 2012 Olymnpics if you are not an athelete, you’ll gain great personal experience and of course is good to have on your CV. More info affter the cut..

F**king idiot are the first 2 words that came to my mind when I saw this photograph. Why would you go get a tattoo of a player who was RUMOURED to join your club? in fact why would you get a tattoo of a player that looks like Shrek? Good God. Now he’s going to have Rooney’s face on his back for the rest of his life, I feel sorry for everyone who knows him personally. What a nincompoop.
It’s a building located on Weymouth Street. I think so anyway, took me about 20-25 minutes trying to locate it on Google Map‘s street view feature! ergh. DSLRs should come with a geo-location tagging in future. I do like how this photograph turned out, real bold with the reflection off the building.
Shoulda Woulda Coulda is back and this time I have decided to focus this week’s edition on the talents of one particular artist. I have put together three songs from talented entertainer Chris Brown that I feel could and would have been hugely successful. Two songs are tracks Chris appears as a guest feature and the other is indeed fully fledged Chris brown track. Check them out on the flipside.
