running through NYC

Halston opted to shoot a beautiful video in place of a runway show for their Fall 2009 line. They hired Blink / Colonel Blimp for all the heavy lifting and the girl running throughout the video is Ernest Hemingway’s great grand-daughter, Dree Hemingway. Directed by Nez Khammel.  

skateistan!

The New York Times published an article/video last week about an Australian man named Oliver Percovich, who has worked hard for two years to create Skateistan – Afghanistan’s first skateboarding school. Hit “more” to watch the video and I’m sure you’ll be as inspired by the story as I am!

attention American and Canadian readers

This is HILARIOUS. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/7863374.stm This is actual video footage of British folk trying – or rather failing – to drive in 2cm of snow.  Yesterday was a joke.

I mean come-on,Continue reading “Poster Boy”

From money to the fact that I have literally  10 projects happening all UK wide in the space of theContinue reading “NYC again – for what? 125th time?”

Hovis Bread, best commericial for bread!

I have to admit, I saw this commercial for the first time last night and i liked it (regardless of its very white relation to british culture… we’ll ignore that element for now). Probably one of the best bread adverts that I’ve seen lol. I like the values that it’s trying to show… Fails toContinue reading “Hovis Bread, best commericial for bread!”

I got a crush on Obama

Is what I got on my Facebook profile thanks to Shivver’s posting it on my wall. I’m definiately infactuated with the idea of Obama, this is true. The idea that change and hope have come through – the idea that it SHOULD work this time around. I’m obsessing over the idea that you know, maybeContinue reading “I got a crush on Obama”
