The death of CD

If we're to believe Sting then it's time for labels and artists to hit us with an App Attack.

This is what he said to Billboard

"People are going to stop buying CDs. People are going to stop selling and making them, so I am looking for different ways to get music to people, and the [app] at the moment seems to be the favourite … The app is the new model."

How about bloody QR signs???? Surely they're the best way to distribute/sell music....

Old news but

Levi's I like what you do, even if this last year's news.

This season, Levi’s® launches Water
To coincide with the launch, architect Ian McChesney has created a unique sculpture within the Regent Street store to illustrate the concept based on water and fluidity.

Mixtapes: the highs and lows and the freebees

In the 90s, hip hop mixtapes were used by artists trying to get a name for themselves on the streets. The aim of the mixtape was to get the attention of the big company execs.

The model has completely changed lately with artists such as Drake, Kanye and Wiz Khalifa, who already have massive following releasing mixtapes between albums. The mixtapes are self released and stick two fingers up at their record labels who sometimes put unreasonable demands on their artists.

The label/ artist relationship keeps changing; artists have more control then ever as to when and where they release their albums. Mixtapes are a way for artists to stay in contact with the fans, give them free music and try out their material before putting their proper album out.

f8

If i were a hacker, developer, general computer geek I so would've wanted to go to this.


I mean it was all to do with facebook and how social is the only way to communicate...duh...but it was a great portal, inspirational conference which allowed those creative heads that walk amongst us to get together in one place and find more ways of creating a social web.

Facebook, if you're listening, I'm down for the next one. I'll take the minutes.

Coming to The Royal Academy. I'll have a couple of tickets thanks and make them VIP. Oh they're sold out you say. No worries I will take them anyway.

In conversations, I always feel a loss when surrounded by 'creative types'; I live around fecking East London so that's like, umm nearly always and when said arties start talking about art I do like an Ostrich....


Anyway heading to this on the 17th.
Love his ballerina portrait- so realistic and you almost feel like you're there in the room with them

Dirty Thirty

Celebrate the 3r5d decade of my life at the chilled Narrow Boat Pub. Food, drinks and mates.

Thank you to everyone.

Masters of Style

The exhibition was on at Somerset House (ended August 14th) so SHAME on you if you missed it.

The exhibition was all about the most powerful Italian fashion houses and their most memorable campaigns.

Here's some pick of the best....though Prada gets it with Amber Valletta's haunting images shot by Glen Luchford.





Norwegian Wedding aka The Fastest Way to Become Bankrupt

A school friend of mine got married at the weekend. 12 bridesmaids, 109 guests, a 4 course meal and plenty of alcohol.

Congratulations to the happy couple.
