See the music

The video for 'Me Nikes' premieres tomorrow, I can't wait to see it on TV. I mean, computerscreens just don't have that allure good ol' fashion TV has. Remember when MTV was good? Like, really good? When they played good music and the presenters were actual personalities? Carolyn Lilipaly, Davina, Ray Cokes had me glued to the tube, ever with the feeling something big was about to happen. It's all realityshows now but nothing feels real. Aaah before I turn sour, let's reminisce for a second:

Longtime wish fulfilled

Crazy, that feeling when you see one of your longtime wishes fulfilled. It's kind of, well, fulfilling and at the same time it can leave you feeling empty. I mean, what more could you want from life after you've gotten to swim in 500 liters of icy cold yogurt and Daniel J Ashes photograph you doing it?

HRMNNH!

I'm late, I know. Went to 'Kung Fu Hossel' last Thursday. What immediately stood out about the show was the costumes. They were done by BlazinBell, people I consider real good friends. Salute!

Oh yeah, today is your last chance to see it. Check shade.nl for tickets.

Good peoples

Last Friday (before it turned black) I was at work and in walk a guy and a girl. We bullshitted for a while, they got with some new gear and directions. I got good vibes and a picture. Thank you and come again.

A couple of related links to check out: The sweater is Shobo. He bought it at the Ontour shop. Check out their blog while you're at it. It's an interesting read, as is The Little League's.

Black Friday

No, that title doesn't have anything to do with Clyde's skin color. It's more about last Friday. Went to a nice party where THEY kept the Stolichnaya flowing. Stoli is a guilty pleasure of mine and so everything after that party is a blur. We call that a black Friday. I lost my phone and my camera!

One day..

I was at work and in walks this guy wearing a really cool scarf. I asked him if I could take a picture of him for my blog. Alas, he didn't feel like it. He said it was cool if I wanted to wear it and then he'd take the picture though. So that's what we did. Too bad I didn't get to take a picture of him and his friends. They were nice.

The scarf is by Bulgaria-born Vladimir Karaleev, who's now living in Berlin. Check the website for his his 'Cut 210' collection. The concept for this is really interesting: Karaleev made 20 pieces out of 210 t-shirts. For the first piece he used 1 t-shirt, the second consists out of 2, etc etc. The scarf - I believe - is made out of 8 t-shirts tied together. See for yourself.

Calling it a night.

So I'm home from the videoshoot, ready to call it a night but I just have to share my feeling with you: I'm worried about the video. I mean, how can it ever turn out any good when the director looks like this: I'm kidding, the director does really look like this BUT the video is going to look really nice. We all worked all night. So thanks New kids on the block, 100% Halal, Opposites, Fanny, Dio, Abstract, crew, Flinke Namen, Nike, Nike SB, Cream PR, Ray-Ban, Patta, Stussy, Loreak Mendian, Paul Frank, Blue Blood and Freshjive. If I forgot anyone or anything: Sorry, I've been up for 24+ hours. Goodnight!

I hope they buy me a burger

Since I'm busy with styling for the Opposites' new new new video today, no real update. Just a snapshot of the gear we've collected for this one. You know the boys gotta look fly.

Snappin 'em

So as I mentioned earlier Branko, Dio and I were working on some pressshots. Here's how they turned out.



All pictures -except the first of course- by Branko.

A band of gypsies

Yesterday, while running around the city doing pressshots with photographer Branko and rapper Dio, these two guys struck me when we arrived at Central Station. We stopped and listened to them play for a while. You can find beauty anywhere.
