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 […]

B E A U T Y by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro

posted by on 27/01/2014

Well, I have never seen anything quite like this. Director Rino Stefano Tagliafierro has managed to manipulate 2D imagery to create an almost 3D effect on some classic and historic paintings. The results are simply out of this world. The slow motion of the paintings is astonishing where the subjects almost come to life. It becomes incredibly easy to become fully submerged in the paintings and really feel what they are portraying. Yeah, I really don’t know how else to describe this. Breathtaking stuff. Check it out after the cut.

Lacoste | Life is a Beautiful Sport

posted by on 24/01/2014

Lacoste was always that brand that covered every angle as I was growing up. The brand that stood for a bit of everything. It was classic sportswear that was trendy, sophisticated and functional, but still held that luxury appeal. With that, I am really pleased to hear that Lacoste is going back to their roots and founding values with their latest campaign launch #livebeautifully. Remaining sporty and relaxed, even when confronted with challenges; the true “Lacoste spirit”. To celebrate the launch of this campaign, the wonderful people at Lacoste invited us out to Paris for the #beautifulparty in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

BBC | Sochi 2014 Trailer

posted by on 16/01/2014

Epic winter landscapes (CGI, nonetheless), dramatic Game of Thrones style music and, in perfect synchronisation, the narration of GoT badass Tywin Lannister as the voice of nature. Three elements that make BBC’s new Sochi 2014 (Winter Olympics) trailer absolutely awesome. Created by RKCR/Y&R and director Tomek Baginski, the 90-second clip takes an approach of focusing on the battle with nature that the Winter Games holds, a challenge like no other, or, in his own words “I am the dreadful menace. The one whose will is done. The haunting chill upon your neck. I am the conundrum.” Gripping. Watch it after the jump.

The London Underground in the 1970s/80s

posted by on 12/01/2014

The London Underground is one of the many amazing features of one of (if not THE) greatest city in the world (we are all proud Londoners here at Y&Y, so expect nothing less). Its usefulness is on par with its annoyance, but one thing that we always notice (and love, really) is the diversity on display down in the tunnels. We people watch. It’s in our nature, and what we see on the Underground really is a true reflection of the people that live in this great city. This was captured absolutely brilliantly in the 1970s/80s by photographer Bob Mazzer on his daily commute for over 20 years. With the undisputed Leica M4 as his weapon of choice, Mazzer produced some of the most fantastic street (well, under-the-street) photography I have seen. Take a look at some examples below.

Sony Take To The Skies

posted by on 03/01/2014

Sony always do it big with their adverts. Take their recent 4K TV ad, for example, where they shot 8 million flower petals out of a volcano in Costa Rica. Putting special effects aside once again, Sony has produced a beautiful new advert for their Alpha 7 range of cameras. Filmed in 4K by Simon Hammond and Cutting Edge, the footage shows a team of skydivers in free fall on the edge of the planet changing a Sony A7R lens mid-air. I want to sit here and tell you how the special effects are amazing, but no, the whole thing was real. Shot across 9 different jumps over 2 days, the minute-long video is no ordinary ad. Check it out after the cut.

Buy Essay For Me

When I hardly understand just one word of what they are saying, not to mention the main topics debate and hear IT people speaking with eachother, they are n’t dismissed by me as ” charlatans.” I create the concession they have their very own terminology which the employment it to speak and present the subtleties of info and computer science. Thinker Jacques Derrida considers on paper-in-general a complete program that feeds the individual -criture. of folks. For Derrida: “Il n’y a pas de hors-texte”‘”you’ll find nothing beyond your text.” Marciano Guerrero is really a retired investment lender, Columbia School-informed, and Vietnam Vet (67-68).

Nike | Sochi 2014 USA Medal Uniforms

posted by on 27/12/2013

Nike has always nailed major sporting events. It is their field of expertise, after all (no pun intended). I was really impressed with their London 2012 USA medal uniforms, featuring an awesome silver windrunner and Nike Flyknits. Following in the same pattern, Nike has unveiled the medal uniforms for Sochi 2014 (the next Winter Olympics, held in Russia, for those that have been living under a rock), which also features silver outerwear and another pair of Flyknits (the winterised Flyknit chukka to be precise). Team USA is going to look particularly stylish up on the podium come February. Check out some images of the kits after the jump.

Lynx Africa Turns 18

posted by on 16/12/2013

So Lynx Africa has been around for 18 years now. Yes, I said eighteen. How many of you feel ridiculously old now? All I can think of right now is the secondary school P.E changing rooms with the raw smell of sweaty young competitive males as they ever so hygienically throw their uniforms back on after an hour of dodgeball (somehow that’s a sport), and spend the next hour spraying themselves with a can of deodorant that resembles the cover art of ATCQ’s The Low End Theory album. Awesome. For this special occasion, Lynx have enlisted some of the UK’s top male illustrators to help them celebrate with 18 awesome pieces of work. Check out some of the Lynx Africa-inspired artwork after the cut.

J. Cole | Live in London

posted by on 04/12/2013

J. Cole is at the O2 next year – be there. Review done. No, but honestly, the 28 year old from North Carolina put on one hell of a show last night at the Hammersmith Apollo (or whatever the hell it’s called these days) and I was lucky enough to witness it. During an energetic display of all the hits, J. Cole performed his heart out while the sell-out crowd rapped along word for word. With a set pushing 90mins, Cole was non-stop. His humorous personality shone through both during and between songs, orchestrating the crowd to the beat and lyrics. As he sipped on his bottle of Hennessy, he says how tonight London made him feel like Jay-Z. Right on. More after the cut.
