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 […]

MoxyCreative | Mixed Reviews Movie Posters

posted by on 31/01/2011

The folk over at Moxy Creative have done it again with a new set of movie posters illustrating key moments in each movie using alcoholic drinks. My favourite has to be The Hangover one featuring the rufflin incident in the film with Alan and his ‘blood brothers.‘ Totally random but I have to link you to this scene in the movie, probably my favourite. After the cut for a few of my favourites.

Crazy Digital Artwork by IK-YD

posted by on 31/01/2011

I’m a graphic designer, 90% of my work is digital based – I haven’t really used the traditional design methods since high school. My tools = Adobe Creative Suite. Iabakidy Natanaël who goes by the name of IK-YD has most definitely mastered this art. I can’t find any information on this digital artist, even his/her portfolio site doesn’t have an ‘about me‘ section. The composition of the work is incredible; great mixture of shapes, vibrant colours, photography and striking textures. It all comes together really well, definitely has that explosive factor to it. Peep more on the flipside.

Energizer Inductive Wireless Charging Pad

posted by on 31/01/2011

This is what I need! I have way too many wires all tangled up in my room; iPhone, Blackberry and Mac Chargers + monitor, speakers and the rest. You can imagine how annoying it is untangling all that shiznit. The other day I came across this Energizer product on Mashable that charges your mobile phones wirelessly! all you have to do is place your iPhone/Blackberry on the shiny black surface and voila! it recharges it for you. Magic ey? The future? quite possibly. Apple and RIM will hate this if this takes off, who would buy their overpriced chargers when they can just get one of these babies. More technical bits and imagery on the reverse.

101 Bishopsgate also known as Heron Tower is the tallest skyscraper in the City of London. It’s part of a plaza being constructed by Heron International , it’ll incorporate new public spaces, squares and gardens. The company have already signed terms with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts to develop their spaces here. Pretty sure this place is for all ya’ll rich folk who flyover frequently for business meetings. Perfect location.

New Video | Jessie J – Price Tag

posted by on 30/01/2011

I was supposed to post this much earlier but due to a combination of excessive drinking, loud music and tiredness I failed to deliver this on time. Here we have the new music video for friend of the site Jessie J‘s newest single ‘Price Tag’. The B.O.B assisted track is taken from her forthcoming debut album and is more of a reflection of who Jessie is as an artist and what we can expect from the album. The hard hitting ‘Do It Like A Dude’ was an introduction to the mainstream and now ‘Price Tag’ is it’s mellow counterpart. Peep the video on the flipside.

Hengki Koentjoro's B&W Photography of Indonesia

posted by on 30/01/2011

Another thing we discussed at the Y&Y meeting was to post more art. After all we are all about fashion, music and ART. We have planned to visit galleries, exhibitions and anything art-related in London and report back to ya’ll. Anywho, I found this dope set of black & white photography of Indonesia. The 47 year old Indonesian photographer has done a wonderful job of capturing the land and sea in it’s natural beauty. They look timeless in B&W, I really need try this monotone style of photography out when we go Rome in June.

T-Pain's Facebook Like Tattoo

posted by on 30/01/2011

Since Jay-Z‘s D.O.A, T-Pain‘s career hasn’t quite picked up since. I guess that might be the only explanation for this foolish tattoo he went and got done in Hawaii. Nappy boy T-Pain introduced this new tattoo with a tweet: “I think this ones pretty sweet, unless facebook shuts down soon 0_o“. Sweet? Idiotic more like, I remember a guy got a myspace tattoo done a few years ago, pretty sure he never predicted the site disappearing like it has done  Gucci Mane’s mental home definitely has spaces for more rappers, T-Pain go sign up! foolishness.

230. Christ Church Spitalfields | LDN.365

posted by on 30/01/2011

Definitely a full view recommended on this one. I showed DJB the before and after photograph of this one, his response was ‘f**k off‘. The original was a boring photograph that I had to rush to take as I was in the middle of the road. I didn’t have time to check the inside of the Church out but after some Google research I found out that it’s a diverse, growing Anglican Church. The building itself was built in the early 17th Century to a design by Nicholas Hawskmoor – same guy who designed the Westminster Abbey.
