You can’t see my Nikes

So Nike revealed the Air Max ‘Country Camo’ Pack. Basically an oxymoron on your feet as you get them because you want to show off but they are made of a material that is deigned to not be seen in it's environment. Anyway, they actually look fab. Themed by country and their own version of military camouflage, each pair is dope in it's own way. Well done Nike, well done.   ...

MIA

Nothing left to loose.

2 days ago, M.I.A. released her first video of her new album MATANGI. As always, the video and the song (produced by Switch et Surkin) is dope. (posted the beat drom where the sample of this song is taken from at the end of this post) Like a pervert mix of french suburbs, young angry kids, Welcome to Gattaca, Barbie hair and religious symbols. In a very 90s meets WAD esthetics, This whites army of immigrants kids walks quietly into a party/temple of expression. (somehow, it looks very Romain Gavras-like, but i can't seem to find who directed this little ...

Splits on trees

Now here is the perfect example of how Youtube and social media can be used to display one's awesomness to the entire world. Meet Todrick Hall, a 20 something years old Texas young man that has managed to use the power of the internet to show everyone his talents. He sings like a god, has more funny in him than the entire cast of SNL and knows how to put a crew of artists together. All his videos are perfectly edited, beautifully sang, acted by dope actors and basically tight as hell. Oh yeah: he also happens to be hot... HAWT. From Mean Gurlz to CinderFella and ...

Kid President meets President Obama

Remember Kid President? You know that awesome kid that gave the world a "Pep talk"? Well, last April, he met the ACTUAL gown-up version of himself. And it it adorable. Made me happy just to see it. Wanted to share it just for the happiness it brings. As well as the Pep Talk, as we never hear it enough. By the way, did you know that Kid President, that keeps asking us to dance and have more fun actually has Osteogenesis Imperfecta? Yeah, blew my mind and even though it has nothing to do with his message, it does make it so much more powerful. You go ...

Jesus was a hipster.

Have you even been bored into a museum, watching these classical nude white marble sculptures feeling they where SO FAR AWAY from you? Yeah, i know, you are never bored in museums. Ha. (wtvr) Funny thing is, as soon as you dress them like hipsters, they suddenly look like your neighbour. Seems we also rock the same hairstyles from back then. Cute.

Manish Arora is great. I mean, i don't know him (maybe he's a prick), but his designs are beyond. He manages to take the fascinating tradition indian designs and injects it with 20th Century pop graphic esthetics. I'm in love with his SS13 jewelry collection. IN LOVE.   ...

15SUBPIANO-superJumbo

Imagine all the people…

Some ideas are so simple, it makes them great. Like music to calm a rioting country. Literally. Davide Martello is a german pianist that decided to go play free concerts in every capital city in the world. Just him, his grand piano and music. Now last week, he brought is piano in teh middle of Taksim square in Istambul. The reason why you heard of this place is because it has been the center of the violent protest against the Turkish government. A new theater where the people refuse to be taken for fools and to have their freedom stolen from them. The result was ...

Woman, street artist and living in Kabul.

Last week, i took "crashing an event" to a whole other level: the level of twisting your destiny for an hour. One of my girls that works in the swiss national TV station forwarded me an email about a small exhibit organized by a local feminist organisation ( "Terre des Femmes") about this young woman graffiti artist from Afghanistan: Shamsia. Now these words just sounded so magical yet surprising together, i just had to go check out the press event i obviously wasn't invited to. So i did. And i didn't only show up, i was right there, in the front, ...

Two awesome things put together don't necessarily result is a third awesome thing. Like having sex while watching Family Guy, eating ice cream while skiing or Reality and TV. Yes, this is Real-Life math. But in this case, the result is good. New Zealand brand I Love Ugly and one of my fav DC rappers Oddisee. On that note, Oddisee happens to have one of the most intersting and inspiring Instagram i follow. Check it out. As well as his music you ignorant mofo. ...

Papa Can You Hear me?

Total crush. On the music, on the art direction, on the dancing, on the concept, on the lyrics. It's nice to see that sometimes the mainstream music mafia industry sometimes brings us actual art. Stromae, our generation's new Brel, taks on the subject of the father. Or more specifically the fatherless child. In a visual mix of Edward Scissorhands and Katie Perry's decorator, this volontarily fake-bubble-gum-looking set portays the hard contrast of a dreamed definition of the father and the reality of him being un-real, an invention of the child's ...

Ink Dopeness

Instagram is a funny tool. Very addictive, midely distracting and sometimes, a real window to talents you would have never known. One of these talents is this YueWu dude. He basically looks like the chinese version of Theophilus London with a gypsy dentist (gold teeth) and a very Wes Anderson-like sense of humour. Yesterday, he posted the video he and this other french guy (yeah, he seems to be from paris) did for the new Ed Banger compilation. All in ink and pencil, this is actually a little gem. (with other amazing illustrator from Paris ...

So it's an admitted fact that we can't live without our precious smart phones. They basically have become the most precious thing we own as we litterally feel like a prehistoric autist in the jungle without it. Don't even front, you know it's true. they are also the object we carry with us all the freakin' time and so it needs to look fly. Here are some of my fav from the very awesome Society6 website.   ...

Better than planking.

Remember planking? Well if you don’t it’s ok, it was one of those pretty wak internet craze that really is not worth more than 7 minutes of your curiousity and maybe a Facebook post.   Thing is, here is the proof of how sometimes, the same idea (immobilizing your body in an akward position in an unusual setting) can either be "meh" or true art. This performing troop has been doing these urban living canvases since 2007. (yes, i know, i’m like freakin’ 6 years late) and their name is Bodies in Urban Spaces (boring name) They are choreographed ...

Love L!ve

Such a dope brand. Well thought, well deigned, well marketed. The only not so cool thing about it is that the women collection is a little soft and boring. That's why the polo i bought is from the men SS13 collection. So i had it "pimped" a little. Tailored to fit me closer and lined the sleeves with classic blue-men-shirt material. Tap on my shoulder. ...
