Banana Loves...

The retro infused illustrations of Matheus Lopez Castro aka Mathiole. This young Brazilian artist's work is so full of beautiful colours and textures that I can only be jealous right now and think about doing some more work myself. Very inspiring work...

Banana Rates

This quirky/surreal video straight from the darkly creative pits of Partizan Lab...at least that's how I've always imagined this "mystical" place to look like...proving that not all perverts are bad - now I've seen it all - and you certainly shouldn't be scared of these guys! Enjoy...

Bonjour London

Back into town with a vengeance...I've only been away for just over a week but oh how I missed this place! Good to be back in sunny-ish London and resuming my duties as quiet observer of all things cool and creative! I have a feeling London has missed me too...

Movits

Since the London weather is so Goddamn poor - currently raining - you really need all the help in the world to get into the summer spirit...enter Movits, Swedish hip-hop/swing/jazz trio to make us all happy and smiley again. Truth be told I didn't come across these guys all by myself, a certain elf by the name of Andy H. Murray where H apparently stands for Hunter although I still insist it's for Heidi only because of his beautiful and shiny blonde locks, helped me out with this one...I said I'd give him credit for it so there! Movits...the band to take you through the summer when nothing else goes according to plan!

Tron:Legacy

Being a girl and all that, I'm not supposed to like/understand/fully appreciate all things of the sci-fi nature...games, movies, iconic characters...I even watched Dune two weekends ago and fell asleep for most of it! I mean sure I've got a Nintendo DS and I like to play any Mario related games on it but that's as far as my sci-fi sensibilities stretch. But there's just something about the Tron:Legacy trailer that makes me believe perhaps it's time to turn over a new leaf here...anyone can change right?! Plus, with the exception of one song, the whole soundtrack to this movie was done by my favourite French duo Daft Punk...it must be a sign surely! Also, the song in question is nothing short of 80s epicness - if that's even a word, the mullet, inappropriately skinny jeans, white socks and trainers combo...I mean it's like an East London's cool kid wet dream - and I reckon when this movie finally comes out youtube hits/itunes downloads and video responses to the genius of the song that is Separate Ways by Journey will probably cause an almighty internet crash and every living breathing thing - not me then - will be digitized into virtual reality...of course there is a strong possibility that no such thing might ever occur! One thing's for sure though...I must watch the original movie...I simply must! 2010...good times!

This amazing video directed by Sil Van Der Woerd - very talented young person - featuring Lolly Jane Blue. Beautifully haunting song and a video that captures the sentiment of the melody and doesn't let it go until it's over and then you just want to watch it all over again...I did anyway! Visual poetry like never before...
