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 […]

Tackling the taboo subject of Post Natal-Depression, Shallow Slumber makes for a truly compelling watch. Written by award winning playwright and social worker Chris Lee, the play challenges the perceptions of social workers and post natal-depression sufferers by carving out three-dimensional characters.

Throwback Thursday

posted by on 16/02/2012

Don’t you just love it when you put your iTunes on shuffle and it picks out a great song you had almost forgotten about? The track that my speakers started blasting had me and my brothers reminiscing. With soothing vocals from Faith Evans, and motivational lyrics from A Tribe Called Quest, ‘Stressed Out’ is a certified classic. Have a listen after the jump.

Film Flashback #4 | Hitch

posted by on 15/02/2012

 7 years (and 3 days): On February 11 2005, Hitch was released

‘Game’ is defined by the urban dictionary as ‘the art of using persuasive discourse, either with women or in any situation, to get what one wants’. It is something which all men need – at least to some extent – and must strive for. Because as Will Smith’s character says himself; ‘No guile, no game…No girl’. This blend of realistic notions with a Hollywood film’ obvious need for artificial events is one of the reasons why 2005’s Hitch is so alluring, and still makes for an enjoyable watch years later. You could do far worse for a Valentine ’s Day movie.

Wildlife Photography By Doug

posted by on 15/02/2012

Randomly came across Doug’s flickr today and instantly took a liking to his wildlife photography, he’s taken them on different locations all around the world. To take good wildlife photos it helps to know the movements of each animal so you can anticipate when you can take you shot; Doug manages to capture these animals’ movements at just the right time to produce the perfect image…either that or these animals are SO vain! Not only are the shots on point but I like his editing too, making his photos alot more vibrant. See more of his photos after the break, also check out his flickr page.

Y&Y Version 3 Preview Event @ Boxpark

Y&Y Version 3 Relaunch Event

3 years ago Yin&Yang started as a platform for Niran (Yin) Vinod and Ernest (Yang) Opoku to share their opinions on what they thought was cool. Over time, the ’2 Fresh Kids’ grew into an eclectic family of contributors from around the city and beyond, all committed to finding innovative ways to impart our passion for music, fashion, art, culture and creativity on our readers. Somewhere along our three-year road, our vision changed; we wanted to do more than share what we thought was cool. We began to do more than just curate the cool, we began to create the cool. More on the reverse.

Norvz Austria Makes Time Stand Still

posted by on 14/02/2012

God I miss my photoshop days where I created art like this. Digital artist Norvz Austria, aka xetobyte first forayed into digital manipulation because he couldn’t find any desktop wallpaper that he liked. Similar to my story but mine was because of forum signatures. The Philippines-based artist has created this series of surreal pieces, clearly inspired by legendary surrealist Salvador Dali. I love the composition of it all, everything blends in so well together. Just look at the clouds and the silhouette above seamlessly fused together as it was an unedited photograph. Almost makes me wish if he’d create a short digital film with the clocks smashing. Hop on after the cut and you’ll see what I mean.

I don’t do many music posts on here anymore, Tara and DJB have been holding down this section of the site! I’ve been hooked on Joel Baker’s music ever since big bro Olan of Cardy Films introduced me to his last EP a month ago. We ended up behind the scenes at his video shoot a few weeks back, check that out here. He’s just released a covers EP with 5 beautiful renditions of popular songs including  J. Cole’s ‘Who’s World Is This’ and Drake‘s ‘Club Paradise’. Definitely one for your iTunes library, download and tracklist on the reverse.
