Heartbreaks was my everyday song back in Sydney, I was listening to it EVERYDAY and I just listened to it again and I feel that it’s going to be a night of Thundercat! ( I also love cats, I don’t know if it’s relevant right now but it will soon!)
Anyways WHEN I HEARD from Free your Funk that he was going to be in Paris, well fellow Parisians take your TICKETS right now because you don’t want to miss his awesomeness!!
Two years ago I went travelling around Europe with my sister on a 15 day trip, which began as quite an ordinary European experience.
Taking in a few other cities first, eventually we made our way to Berlin where we met with my friend Susanna who promised to show us a great time. After a long and beautiful day exploring we were itching to delve into the Berlin scene and knew we wouldn’t be disappointed. The party was finally ON.
We made our way to a backyard where people where having a party in a school bus – no big deal, but then we were invited behind a supermarket on the promise of something even better. Reminding ourselves to seize the opportunity – the next 24 hours could be the best of our lives! We began to climb some stairs, with each step wondering where the night would take us.
When we reached the top we were so glad we did – we walked through to find a ‘private’ living room packed full with the most amazing people dancing, drinking and partying. Now, as much as I’d like to, I can’t tell you a lot about the rest of this party (it’s better that it stays secret anyway). Suffice to say my friend may have ended up dancing on a table with someone you’d definitely recognize. What an incredible night.
Our new attitude to life changed the whole trip. Trains became our main transport and secret parties our new way of living – jumping from one to the next, wherever the night would take us, chasing the dawn. I would recommend it to anyone.
Better yet, we’ve heard rumblings of another secret party happening soon from ASOS, which sounds like it could be the experience to beat all others. Check back here September 30th and you can find out more…..
A to Z naked bodies by Anastasia Mastrakouli
Is it me or getting women naked is the new trend!?
In just few weeks, every time I watched a video, someone walked in and looked at me in a creepy way wondering why there is always a naked woman on my screen. Well my friend, this is the new trend! YouTube is going crazy, banning every nipples they see and Vimeo could not be happier to get more users.
To be honest I don’t really see the point in Robin Thicke – Blurred Lines ft. T.I., Pharrell’s video, the women are beautiful but they look dumb and men are being all dressed up with sunglasses in a studio, seriously WTF? In FOALS [bad habit] everything is subtile and soft, the desert brings a real beauty to this chased naked woman. In GESAFFELSTEIN – PURSUIT the video is simply amazing and YouTube have been gentle with this one so go watch it!
Well after all those naked bodies, I’m going to hit the gym and leave you with the following videos:

Last week in Shanghai, No Man’s pop up art gallery has pitched up in an amazing 1000 m2 hangar with view across the Huangpu river. Welcome to New York. “The place has an underground spirit for people to feel good, but not too dirty to remain credible for the buyers ”.
After talking three minutes with Emmelie Koster, founder of the No Man’s gallery, the first sentence that comes up to you is: “Well, okay, I want to live her life”.
Since 2010, this Copenhagen girl has been traveling the world to organize fleeting and exclusive art exhibitions in the most exciting cities, leaded by a sole criterion: exhibit young artists from both the host country and abroad.
On Friday night, the launch party already attracted more than 800 people. We could meet tattoo artists, DJs and have exclusive goodie bags. A dozen of young artists from India, Denmark, China or France were showing their universe through painting, photographs and video art.
“We found them just a few months ago they just replied to our Facebook post” says Emmelie.
The power of networking is used to find a new working team in each place. That night, Luigi Auricchio, Neapolitan boy working in a French design company in Shanghai, was involved to organize the event.
On Tuesday, the gallery experienced its singularity event, “Art in the Dark”: a night to discover the exhibition plunged into the dark, with only a flashlight to guide you…
If you missed the Shanghai pop-up event, do not worry you will be able to see soon No Man’s Art gallery in New York and Cape Town! Go on No Man’s Art Website for more info.

Vice threw a party in Sydney for its 10 years anniversary at GOOD GOD small club. The sound of Flatbush Zombies, Straights Arrows, Raw Prawn and Housewives made us burn the dancefloor. Could not be a better night.
It’s 7 PM, we are arriving at the entrance of GOOD GOD small club in Chinatown. A magnificent breast cake wishing Vice a happy birthday is awaiting for us. The place is looking good and a bit kitsch. A projector is showcasing 10 successful years of Vice’s most impressive, dirty, weird, fun, random, sexy topics.
Aguila in one hand, we try to sit somewhere but tables are full of a surprising crowd for Sydney’s night scene. We look around : Long hair, beard, sweat, grease and beer smells are surrounding us : Wrangler announced the line up and Good God’s danceteria is now open for the concert.
We enter the smokey den, spot a table and sit, going back and forth to the bar, the first concert finally begins. The drummer is amazing, we talk about him and the only instrument we played in our youth: the triangle (A beautiful instrument played in Star Wars intro music (thank you Nick)). We talk, drink, talk, Flatbush Zombie has finally arrived: We vanished with the crowd on fire.
Thank you Vice for this memorable party, I felt like I was ten again.
“Salome” is Eliya Nikki Cohen‘s last video. Eliya is an extraordinary Sydney based photographer/videographer (check her website). She created this video to feature the beautiful Salóme Gunnarsdóttir wearing magnificent clothing from Lisa T. Check it out:(Addicted to the tune? It’s from Danger Beach)
Eliya has recently returned from a year long travel in the USA while studying at the Rhode Island School of Design. She worked for renowned photographer Ryan McGinley in NYC!
She returned to Australia with fresh ideas and inspirations, and decided to collaborated with close friend, Lisa Twomey, (Lisa T). The match of those two artists is perfect and they surely have some more projects coming up. Stay tuned.You will probably hear more about Eliya since I definitely want her to do something with us!
Let’s talk about the talented designer Lisa Twoney. Lisa T is a Sydney based artist and fashion designer. Her designs are full of dreamy graphics and fabrics. As an artist, she began with brushes and discovered herself a talent for the sewing machine. With an artistic mind and designer hands, her collection is a great combination of colours and patterns for a wild/bohemian look. Her inspirations vary from Iggy Pop to Dumbledore, (I would surely drop the name of Game of Thrones here), or whatever she’s feeling at the time.
She was part of the famous Canberra’s Fashfest this year and Fashion Guru Susie Lau alias Susie Bubble is wearing her brand. So, what are you waiting for to get Lisa T-rendy’s pieces of clothing?
