DE LA SURPRISE

30 04 2009

So last night was a little unexpected. It all started with Mafia receiving a phone call in the office, something about De La Soul and their gang wanting to hang out at Miss Libertines. So happens, Mafia was spinning that night at Libertines and someone mentioned that DJ Maseo was bringing his tunes and ‘might’ have a spin if he felt like it.

From then it was a race to get as many people down to the venue as possible – cos if De La and their entourage walked into a a club that was packed and going off, they might actually feel like jumping on the decks. 

Between Twitter, Facebook and SMS, everyone managed to get almost 700 people down to Miss Libertines in 4 hours. There was a massive line outside from 10pm and by 10:30 it was a full house. Im sure many people were told to go home after that because the venue just couldn’t fit any more people in it. When De La finally turned up, they had about 15 people in their crew. Even Cut Chemist was there. And to everyones delight, DJ Maseo jumped on the wheels of steel and served up some wholesome hip-hop from back in the day.

As usual I didn’t get any decent photos. I blame the lighting and the dodgy camera. But from one of the pics you can just tell how packed it was. And to think that a few hours before no one knew about it. I LOVE Melbourne!

Till today nothing comes close to replacing the traditional ring with a large diamond on it when you need to express how much you love someone. But every now and then we see the odd creative genius come up with something that almost rivals the somewhat cliche gemstone. One of them is SAKURAKO SHIMIZU – who is a (obviously) Japanese designer who is based in Brooklyn, New York.

This new ‘Swine Flu’ that is going around South America, America and now being reported in New Zealand is getting pretty serious. From what I can remember the last big worldwide scare of any sort of pandemic was the”bird Flu’ from Asia. Even though a big scare, that looks like its gonna be child’s play compared to this new strain that is currently spreading at pace.

Read here for a simple explanation on what it is.

Unfortunately this is only an artist concept submitted for a design competition. Let’s hope Steve Jobs takes note. This is what we want the new iPhones to look like!
