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 […]

What A Week Of Groceries Looks Like Around The World

posted by on 23/10/2013

Photographer Peter Menzel’s intriguing series looks at a week’s worth of groceries around the world, it’s taken traditional food photography to another level as well as giving us cultural insight into the differences between MEDCs and LEDCs. I can’t help but feel some of these photographs are staged and probably not from their respective countries, maybe Peter – could confirm? The American family win on the junk front – enough heart attack food, all carb everything. See more on the reverse.

Playstation 4 – For The Players Since 1995

posted by on 21/10/2013

So much nostalgia in this, especially if you’re around my age (25) – Sony‘s going hard with the advertising for the new console which is set to drop late next month. It’s taking us back to the routes of modern day gaming by following a set of friends as they grow with the console releases over the years; Playstation, PS2, PS3 and now the 4. What really takes it back for me is the styling and set in each of the scenes, it’ll definitely bring you flashbacks of your childhood.

Perception Is Reality

posted by on 21/10/2013

This is one of the best things I have read in a long time! I have always found it strange how American sports clubs can just pick up and move cities. If anyone ever came to me and said Arsenal were going to Birmingham, well there would be a follow up conversation that would include words and gestures by grandmother would be ashamed of. Every time I think about teams moving, I only ever imagine it from the point of view those in the city the team is moving from, never thinking about what it must be like for the communities who suddenly have a team thrust upon them.

Kendrick’s GRAMMY Interview

posted by on 16/10/2013

HYPE HYPE HYPE. I avoided his last album for the first weeks due to all the hype from everyone during the first few weeks but the guy lives up to it. If you haven’t watched his cypher freestyle from last night, click here. You’ll end up like this after it. GRAMMY.com sat down with Compton rapper to touch on subjects that go deeper than the usual interview – the meaning behind his work, motivation, turning tragedy to art and the legacy he hopes to create as an artist. It’s insightful, you already know K.Dot’s deeper than the average rapper from his lyrical prowess. Watch the 10 x 1 minute clips on the reverse.

Stop Motion Brilliance

posted by on 16/10/2013

The internet is filled with cool and quirky things, things that you would never knowingly search for but sometimes happen to stumble across them. Last night I came a cross this really cool video created by a group of artists known collectively on Vimeo as Oh Yeah Wow. They created a music video for The Paper Kites new song ‘Young’ by taking pictures of 350 people over a seven day period and then spending ten days editing and piecing together 4000 pictures which has resulted in something super cool. The idea is simple and the execution damn near flawless proving that one simple idea can turn out to be genius creativity. Take a look at the video and see for yourself just how good it is.

Dance and Light | Nuance by Marc-Antoine Locatelli

posted by on 15/10/2013

In an incredible balance between light, shadows, movement and sound, French filmmaker Marc-Antoine Locatelli creates a visual representation of dance controlling music.. Through abstract animation, an orb of light is placed on a short film of a street dancer where the orb is used as a sort of mixing board to control the music through the movement of dance. The end result in this short film is so brilliant, I honestly struggled to take my eyes off it. A must-watch after the cut.

Dockers Alpha Khaki Collection

posted by on 12/10/2013

I have a lot of leg wear; trousers, chinos, jeans, shorts, even some long johns and running tights. I did not really think I needed to add anymore to my wardrobe but when it comes to clothing you can never have too many of a good thing, right? Dockers Alpha Khaki Collection has been a great option when it comes to chinos for a while now and was more than happy to get hold of a pair from their latest AW13 range. Chinos do a great job of bridging the smart/casual gap and this particular collection does it with real quality. Parented by Levi Strauss, Dockers chino quality is on a par with the infamous brands denim, which should give you a good idea of what you are buying into. Check out the collection after the cut.
