Ergh. The name of this building took me an unbelievably long time to find via Google Maps as it’s not even listed on there, eventually managed to find it on flickr photo that was attached. Then a further Google search introduced me to a plethora of news articles on the sale of this building, it was owned by a Syrian Tycoon. He used it mainly for lavish dinner parties with business man and a escorts (read). I’m not sure if it’s still on sale but if you have a hefty bank balance, feel free to go purchase it. Don’t forget to pay me a referral fee. Ta.
Sony Playstation has been around for 15 years now can you believe it, Playstation was the best thing that ever happened to my childhood… extreme but on some levels quite true! This year the media giant decided to celebrate by teaming with Nike to produce these amazing pair of sneakers that I would definitely own if i was younger. The new trainers are called: Nike “Move” Huarache Trainer and the Nike “Killzone” SFB Boots. As well as Sony Playstation’s birthday, the sneakers also mark the birth of the new ‘Move’ controller and Killzone 3 game that were recently released. If you’re a sneaker fan I think you will be really interested in how these are designed, its rather spectacular if you ask me. Photos after the cut

Yep I want the Beyoncé DVD. She’s without a doubt one of the best singers of our generation. Unfortunately for me, I’ve not yet managed to go see her live! people keep telling me how amazing she is live and I feel like I’m missing out. So until the next tour this should do me good, the DVD will feature her performing most of her hits from the Sasha Fierce album as well as all the hits. You’ll also get to see a few clips from Bey’s life – birthday, behind-the-scenes, tour rehearsals and more. Always a pleasure to stare at 2 hours+ of Beyoncé. If ya’ll don’t think she’s good live then watch this clip, click here. She can have me without saying hello.
At the moment, my iPhone4 stays cased in a tinted clear Gears4 case, it’s pretty cool but heavily scratched up so I think it’s time for something fresh. Incase, Apple’s leading case providers. In fact they were the very first company to manufacture a case for the original iPod. This new collection of chrome slider cases is sleek, durable and made of hardshell plastic. It comes in a mirror finish, so all ya’ll vain people like Yang – you don’t have to click the camera app to see yourself. Not enough? there’s also interior rubber guard rails to provide shock absorption and scratch protection. These are refreshingly dope, better than all the crappy rubber cases I’ve come across. I can’t stand them because they get stuck inside your pockets! More photographs on the flipside.

I’m still gutted that I missed on witnessing Ozwald Boateng‘s LFW show, it was one that will be talked about for years to come. Yang was lucky enough to be there, for the rest us of who weren’t, Ozwald’s camp have released a digital spread feature that shows the behind the scenes and main catwalk show. Epic, I have to get myself a suit from him! I walked by the store the other day and drooled endlessly at them. After the cut to view the collection book.
This LDN.365 project has made me read a lot more into the historical aspects of each location that I feature. This particular one was quite an interesting read, the Chapel was built by John Wesley, the founder of Methodism. Don’t ask me to define what Methodism is though, I haven’t read THAT much into it. If you want to read more about Wesley’s Chapel, click here. It’s located on City Road, near Old Street Station.
English was one of my weaker subjects in school. I hated reading so much that I even resorted watched film adaptations of the GCSE literature books. It’s probably why I ended up with just a B. In the past year, I think I’ve probably read the most I have ever done. I read pretty much everything and anything now and have a new found appreciation for well written pieces even though I may not be able to create such pieces myself. I came across one of the best articles I’ve read in a long time, Project Runaway (no, not Runway like the reality fashion show). A amazingly well written cover story in Complex on the creation of Kanye’s latest master piece by Noah Callahan-Bever. Continues on the flipside.
Today is the start of the week which usually brings in the highest sales volume of any week mainly due to the American tradition that is Black Friday. This year sees a huge clash of the titans in the music industry and we want to know who you think will win the big race. Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, Ne-Yo and Lloyd Banks all have their eyes set on the #1 slot by the end of the week but with so many albums to choose from who will end the week with the highest sales figures? Most see the race between Minaj and her Pink Friday against Kanye and his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy but it is important that those supporting them should not underestimate a certain Mr Bieber. I have a sneaky feeling that he will beat them to the post in an unexpected turn of events. Have your say and let us know who you think will triumph.
I don’t know if you guys will find this funny but I found it hilarious but genius at the same time. Did y’all see the clip about a man climbing into the bedroom of a woman while her two year old was in the room and her brother was in the room next door, The brother (Antoine Dodson) speaks to a news reporter and runs his mouth stating he’s gonna find whoever it was? Well his little rant has been edited and remixed and the outcome is dope! Check it out after the cut.
