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 […]

Throwback Thursdsay

posted by on 26/06/2014

This week I found it kinda hard to think of a song but I couldn’t understand why. It wasn’t until I was sitting down in a bar with Yang that the song came to me and yes before you question, much like Beyonce, I’d been drinkin I’d be drankin. I knew the song was the one because we both started dancing to it but obviously Yang took it a little to far and tried to sing along, the operative word being TRIED. Anywho enough about Yang’s failed attempt at staying in key, head on over to the flipside and get into a classic from 2Pac.

A Space View of the World Cup

posted by on 26/06/2014

The World Cup is far, far more than a football tournament. It’s a time when all eyes are on 32 countries from across the planet, observing their athletes and their fans, as we find ourselves paying attention to and discussing countries that we never normally would (asides from the general FIFA corruption and ‘problems in football’ chat). Not sure about you, but I find myself discussing things away from the football. The culture of these countries, the population, what I think their people are like, what the country and land is like and where the youngsters play. A fan of photography, and still holding on to a mild obsession I once had with geography and differences in landscapes and terrains, I was very satisfied when I stumbled across these incredible images of all 32 counties in this years World Cup taken from space. Have a look at some below.

Sometimes one forgets how long it takes to construct an Eargasms post. Anywho, I hope you all enjoy the glorious variety in this weeks selection. I would like to give a special mention to the Sam Smith cover of Whitney Houston’s ‘How Will I Know’, this boy can really really sing. It’s actually not fair.

Pepsi World Cup | Directed by Idris Elba

posted by on 18/06/2014

We’re all in that World Cup fever mode now, and despite how much we think they annoy us, we all love the football ads. Pepsi is running a music campaign for the World Cup called ‘Beats of the Beautiful Game’, and in their latest installment, UK icon and man of many talents Idris Elba has directed this rather quirky short movie to the tune of DJ R3hab – Unstoppable. It’s a usual jocks and nerds tale, where the nerd gets another nerd and has an unexpected talent, but I am impressed with the way it’s shot despite the awfully cringy dialogue. What do we think? Watch it after the jump.

Summer Fragrance Selection

posted by on 17/06/2014

As summer rolls around, so does the intensity of some peoples’ stink. Yes the weather is warm but is this an excuse for stench? No. Be it on the train or in the club, you don’t want to be that guy, the guy that everyone shields their nose at the sheer site of. Instead it is an excuse for freshness, something new to attract our noses as our tastes adapt to reflect the change in  weather. The better weather definitely has the effect of bringing beautiful people out into the suns rays and gentlemen you’d better be smelling fresh if you hope to make a good impression. So I’ve picked out three new fragrances that are sure to do just that, check out the full post for more.

Present it a concept that displays the design of the mix, if you are sharing your playlist digitally. 5 Revise the playlist (optional). It is possible to slowly create a mixture Disc. It’s also a good software to really get your brain about in case you opt to blend on the fly. Stop the mixture over a substantial note, with one a melody that you consider will genuinely stay with the audience. Obviously, you’ll find generally exceptions, for example tunes which can be designed to be enjoyed together (for example “The Hellion” and “Electric Eye” by Judas Priest, “Depths” and “Surfacing” by Chapel Team “We’ll Rock You” and “We’re the Winners” by Queen, or “Brain Injury” and Eclipse” by Pink Floyd) and two tunes which have special meaning to your intended audience when performed together.

Throwback Thursday

posted by on 12/06/2014

The track that I have selected for this weeks Throwback Thursday is pure grooves. Whilst writing this i’m listening to the track and can’t stop bopping my head, my work colleagues must think i’m some kind of pigeon. Sometimes I really wish I could sing because if i could I would be singing from the top of my lungs right now, this song just puts me in a good mood. Anywho I think it’s time I told y’all what song i’m gushing about. Everybody people enjoy the smooth tones of Maxwell and his classic hit Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder).

In the Pit | London Grammar, O2 Academy Brixton

posted by on 11/06/2014

Enjoying taking photos is one thing, but it’s taken to a whole other level when you’re put in positions that only photographers have access to. Being in an environment like that feels completely different to just strolling around taking photos. I had shot at the Brixton Academy a while back and thoroughly enjoyed my first experience of gig photography. Thanks to the lovely folk at the O2 Academies we had the opportunity to experience this feeling again with access to the press pit for London Grammar‘s latest gig in Brixton, shadowing their in-house photographer to get a true feeling of how it all goes down. I ended up getting some pretty nice snaps of the trio from Nottingham and managed to have a chat with the photographer. Read on for more.

Hidden Gems | Share your Havens of Inspiration

posted by on 10/06/2014

Hidden Gems. One of the things we love most about London is if you deviate from your usual routes even for 5 minutes, you’re probably going to discover somewhere or something new. So when American Express told us about their latest campaign to highlight these locations around the capital, we were happy to jump on board as ambassadors. The campaign is all about uncovering hidden gems and championing inspirational spots that aren’t particularly celebrated, or better yet undiscovered- and then featuring them on an interactive map. So to kick things off, the Y&Y family have gathered theirs but we’re going to need your help to find even more. Check out some of our inspirational spots and how you can help us on the flipside.

The Art of Marija Tiurina

posted by on 10/06/2014

There are so many artists uploading their work to the internet, no one should need to be told how much of a phenomenal platform it is but it’s also very difficult to stand out. Marija Tiurina caught my attention with an interesting and sometime abstract subject matter, alongside a pleasing colour palette. Her work is beautifully witty and she creates some really interesting characters into which her pencil leaks personality. The Bouquet Man with his beard of roses and the incredibly simple but clever, Nuke Tree, are two of my personal favourites. Check out the post to see her work and find links to more.
