Diplo Gets His Vogue On
Diplo Gets His Vogue On
Beyoncé - 4
We swear this isn't an ironic listening. We love Beyoncé and 4. OK, we might unironically skip straight to track 5, 'Party', produced by Kanye West and with rap by Andre3000, because we ain't no stay-home-mums that need all those ballads about being broken hearted and finding the right person. But, after that, the album turns into a beautiful compilation of classic r'n'b, soul and a bit of sweat-inducing booty tracks - not too many though - that sound surprisingly courageous considering the actual state of pop music. And for that, we bow down and hail Queen B. P.S. Get the deluxe version, for those extra couple of amazing tracks.
The name of this label has been interpreted in many ways; from 'bass-seekey' to 'base-ike', but the correct way describes exactly what this label is about: BASIC. Bassike delivers easily breezily cut staples with an interesting little twist that keeps them from being your run of the mill. For those that live in climates like that of Australia (where Bassike hails from) or Brazil, you'll know how easy it is to make fashion faux pas when the weather gets hot and the prospect of wearing anything but a bathing suit becomes slightly unappealing; Bassike is all and everything you need.
Game of Thrones
Before watching HBO's Game of Thrones, I assumed the series would tend a bit more towards the blood-dripping Danish movie Valhalla Rising rather than fairy-tale stories a lá 'Lord of the Rings'; and for that I didn't really like the series at the beginning. But slowly, I found myself submitting to tales of bad kings, midget juggernauts, savage warriors and... dragons. And that happened probably because there aren't exactly good guys and bad guys here, like there are in Tolkien stories - and that is, of course, a simplification of his work. Another reason I relented to this series is because of the intriguing political backstage element that leads to the ever-happening dance of thrones. Oh, and did I mention the gratuitous nekkid-ness?
The Norfolk // Sydney, Australia
Of the slew of new spots having opened up in Sydney in the last six months, The Norfolk on Cleveland St in Surry Hills has been one fated with success. Owned by some of the same kids that have brought The Flinders back to life (and currently, it's incredibly quick onset of 'The Norms'), you'll undoubtedly find The Norfolk rammed with all kinds, vying for a bite, a beer and a spot in the garden out back. The aim of the game is to cultivate Aussie pub culture at it's best; and it's doing a pretty decent job so far - if only you could get a table!
Super Sad True Love Story
Super Sad True Love Story is the third book from the writer of the best selling Absurdistan, Gary Shteyngart. Incidentally, I read him name dropped in Flavorpill's Ultimate Hipster Reading list and in the same sentence as James Franco (they're buds, apaprently) just before I finished his latest offering. Don't let any of that put you off, or take away any of the sad scary brilliance of Super Sad True Love Story; written from the perspective of one 39 year old Lenny Abramov, son of Russian immigrants and in love with the impossibly cute and cruel Eunice Park. A satire that cuts to the bone, Super Sad True Love Story is exactly it's title. And it's good.

It's been a long time since I've found something lol-worthy enough to post. Here it is:



I totes heart you, random regional news anchor bro!


HEY LONDON! We know you've got a lot of shit on your plate right now in the light of the last few days' events, but a lot of other places have got it pretty bad too. So here's yet another good cause that some of our friends are putting on, that you can get involved with, check it:

Ben Sleazy Folds
HIYA // Ben


I'm actually not really very sure exactly how I feel about Ben Folds and gang covering Ke$ha's 'Sleazy', featuring a remix with the ever cool Andre 3000. But it does give me some kind of excuse to post.....a KE$HA SONG. Don't be hatin' now, because this beat is BANGIN'.


But first, here's Ben Folds' version:




Cute enough right? I guess my beef is that I just can't help being reminded of that girl who did all those really twee indie covers of songs on youtube (I knowww, which one of the billion, right?) including Beyoncé's 'Single Ladies'; especially since Folds, that chick and her mate teamed up with Nick Hornby to do some videosong thing.


But I am going to leave you with Ke$ha featuring Andre 3000. Just try and stop your bad selves working your way around the room to this:

If you really really must... (the Royal Wedding)




If you really really must purchase some commemorative crap in honour of the Royal nuptials, might I suggest some memorabilia by IM//UR artist of the month alumni, Louise Zergaeng Pomeroy?




Louise says:


"I've got a very limited edition Royal wedding Tshirt at Super Superficial for the next couple of weeks (FYI I'm not a massive Royalist, its tongue in cheek don't worry)."




Hell, I'd totes wear that, even if it IS a tshirt with balding Willy and Kate Whats-her-face on it!

Miss A's Suzy for ‘Harper's Bazaar'
HIYA // Suzy


Miss A (short for Miss Asian) is in my top 3 contemporary kpop girl bands – yes, we do have this list. They are like colorful pop fun with a bit of third world attitude. If Rihanna were Korean, ‘Breath’, this delicious synthetic reggaeton number,  would be the video she'd record.


Miss A - Breath



From all the four girls, Suzy (or Bae Su ji in her Korean name) is my favorite, mainly because she is part of the most awesome TV show I’ve seen about pop music, the stupidly funny and highly addictive ‘Dream High’.




Christel got me hooked, but she's been addicted to K Dramas for ages. Then again she also watches ‘Make it or Break it’ so I never really listened to her. Until one night though,  I had nothing to watch to help me sleep except Vicent Gallo being tortured on ‘Essential Killing’, so I gave up and started ‘Dream High’.


The show focuses on the lives of six students at Kirin Art High School, whose main objective in life is to become the country's next pop idols. The school is there to help them achieve their best in order to get there. I see it as ‘American Idol’ meets ‘Gossip Girl’ crossed with 'Glee', but much more funny and naïve than any of them. The lead girl, Go Hye Mi, is played by Suzi and she's a combination of my favorite qualities: witty, selfish, funny and talented.


And now you ask me why I’m saying all of this? It’s because Suzy is being featured in this edition of ‘Harper’s Bazaar’. Although most of the styling is pretty boring – pastel colours, cutesy skirts with blazers and high heels with socks – it fits the theme chosen, “spring blossom”. Never mind though because Suzy looks super good!

HIYA // Me and my Burger Head


Just yesterday, I looked at the clutter on my desk top and realised I'd unconsciously been accumulating burger related images. Hmm. I guess I might be wanting to eat a burger lately. *Sigh*. Miss you Frevo and Toninho Freitas. It's 4am on a Saturday morning and I'm thinking of you.
