New approach to music video

Apart from being one of the best tunes on the album...This video for Radiohead's 'House of cards' demonstrates a potential turning point in music video, which i can imagine becoming quite popular with with half the shit in the current electronic scene trying to be alternative. The video was made with no cameras or lights. Instead, 3D plotting technologies collected information about the shapes and relative distances of objects. The video was created entirely with visualizations of that data. Edgy fucking shit.

Summer Clobber

The 2008 Raf Simons and Fred Perry collab went down pretty well in the on the streets. I wasn't really up for forking out the bunse and I wasn't too keen on much of it. But the 2009 range looks very suave. Couldn't be bothered to flood this lame blog with more 'garment pics' just yet, so I've just put a couple of my faves up. you can check the rest on highsnobiety. As the loafers....well, its gotta be red.

Never really been a big fan of 'windbreakers' but Adidas and Mama Anders have collab'd up to produce these nifty bits of kit made from recycled, re-used plastic.. garnered from sex dolls. No joke. Well, I guess it's kind of a joke from their side...or at least a cheeky dash of tongue-in-cheek humour.
Mama Anders says "These dolls are so ugly and vulgar that turning them into something beautiful has become a challenge for me. The doll is a means to convey something else."
I'm defintley lookin forward to seeing some pretentious wanker wearing one of these, not knowing theres been some sweaty old cock in their hood lol'z.

Photos robbed from Loud dreams


Tremayne Durham, 33, has been preparing to go on trial for murder after killing a man who backed out of a deal to sell him an ice cream truck and did not return his money. After 2 years waiting for his court date he got tired of the jail food and said he would make a plea deal resulting in 30 years if he got a feast to go out with. He didn't even get a fucking zinger...what a loser.

DJ Minty Fresh (whoever that is) definitley stayed away from a coupla cheeky tequilas whilst producing this bag of tip-top remixes. Its a free download you can get here. Although being a fan of radiohead (or jay-z) will make you appreciate alot more (which most of you should be), it's still worth a listen. Favorite choon has gotta be 'Dirt off your android'.

It's Thursday but its not 'Thursday'

Cringest/worst post title ever?
Maybe...but the new Asobi Seksu tune is definitely on par with the previous banger 'thursday'....after a few listens anyway. yes/no?

A Big Fat Greek Riot

On the night of Saturday, December 6th, 2 Greek police clashed with a group of yoots. Exactly what happened is still not clear..however the police fired 3 shots, one of which caused the death of 15-year-old Alexander Grigoropoulos (pictured above). The 2 police are currently in jail awaiting trial, the shooter charged with homicide. As you'd probably guess what with the reputation of riots in Europe (exculding pathetic England) this incident sparked a big one. It's unleashed widespread anger throughout Greece towards a number of issues in society. Here's a few epic examples of the grief that's been going on since 2008...

Immoral Advertising?

This is probably a topic you'll keep seeing me add too throughout this blog.

The question popped up at some presentation I was shown at my college. Criticism over adverts has been going on for years, right back from the Dada movement to modern day fashion billboards. But where do you drawn the line? What should be allowed and what shouldn't?

From the mid 80s to the mid 90s, Italian clothing range Benneton and photographer Oliviero Toscani took the shock factor of advertising to a new level. All of these photographs were advertising a clothing range, from glamorising prisoners on death row to showing the effect AID's victims have on their families members. Whether it's immoral in your eyes or not, the plan worked. By 1994 Benneton were the 3rd most recognised company logo in the world. Oliviero Toscani was later sacked from Benneton, and refused work from most companies. His work is fucking intelligent, and he's definitely a big inspiration for anyone who lacks ignorance.

Unfortunatley alot of the advertisments are so graphic, they're really hard to find on the internet, but I'm sure if you look hard enough you can find em. But here's some I didnt manage to find. Just imagine these on huge billboards across the world..
