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.
Bassike
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.

Insight's Untitled Street Party

screen shot 2011-02-28 at 10.03.52 pm

 

Who can resist a good old summer (invite only) block party? Located in a transformed concrete space surrounded by a bunch of flats a street back from Sydney's famed Bondi Beach, Insight's annual Street Party had all the ingredients to make it a smash.

 

img_3883

 

With bands on stage, art installations adorning neighboring properties and of course the all important free booze, it's hard to say no to the lure.

 

img_3878

 

With at least 800 people having RSVP'd to the event, 400 to be let in and seemingly endless crates of alcohol stated on the old running sheet, it was set to be a good time.

Totes rock on, babes.

 

As it generally goes at these type of things, it was hell to get a drink and due to the amount of cameras on location, scarily well lit. So despite getting stamped on the forearm declaring that 'Somebody's gonna get pregnant at the insight party', the prohibitive access to booze kept it all fairly under control.

A bunch of bands I wasn't familiar with were playing; when I heard them on the night, they weren't of my persuasion and I'm not sure if any of them particularly charmed the mixed crowd either. They did orright though. But I did thank god when the DJs came on.

The art installations were pretty cool, and included a giant gold apple core which I personally rather enjoyed. Erin Wasson made a cameo, though her presence in Sydney wasn't particularly felt despite the fact that she launched her Low Luv jewellery label in Paddington last week.

HIYA // You suck

 

Before midnight hit, what I thought was a suuuuper chill party got quietly invaded by some laid back police clearing the place up. A strategic move by the organisers in an attempt for bad-ass-dom? A nearby resident fed up with the noise? Who knows, but it was fun while it lasted...Anyway, Cut Copy were throwing a party over in Chinatown, so it was time to make an exit anyway.

 

Though I bet I didn't have as much fun as this guy...and as I post, I ask myself a question that I find myself pondering a lot lately... Is this racist or not?

HIYA // Rita Cadillac

HELLOY // Rita

 

 

Yesterday I was introduced to Brazilian dancer, singer, entertainer and jail-bird idol, Rita de Cássia Coutinho, otherwise known as Rita Cadillac; aptly named for her superbly endowed rear.  

 

Rita came to fame as a chacrete, the most famous of the dancers who accessorised the TV shows hosted by Brazilian comedian and personality, Chacrinha. Last night, Rita made an appearance at São Paulo's Clube Gloria to do what she's famous for: dance a little, sing a little, and well, have her ass kissed by adoring fans. Seriously.

 

 

rita-cadilac

 

Earlier this year, she even had a documentary film made about her entitled Rita Cadillac - A Lady do Povo (Rita Cadillac - A Lady of the People) depicting her life since childhood.

Rita became a cult figure in the 80s after doing some Pornochanchadas (meaningpornô - porn, obvs, and chanchada, light comedy), which is the name given to a genre of sexploitation films produced in Brazil that was popular during the 1970s and early 1980s. As a result, Rita became spank-bank material of choice for many South American prisons, to the point where she made a cameo as herself in the film Carandiru, which tells stories about the biggest prison in Latin America culminating with the '92 massacre.

She was HOT DAMN in her hey day, and despite being a little worn at her  current 56 years of age, she can still wriggle and writhe with the best of them. And I totes met her.
