What about those shoes ?

14 Jun


Off course, you can shoot your cool sneakers on a white background and they will stand out real nice. Or you can do what Willie T did, but you won’t see the shoes until the second viewing. FYI, model: Ellis Cooper, shoes: Air Jordan 11. Enough said.


iOS 7 – Swiping has never been easier

12 Jun


Not that I think the use of an iPhone could be any easier, aside from small irritations off course. I do have to admit I got a little bit excited when I heard about IOS 7, mainly because it looks like they’re actually changing quite a bit. It seems the keyword is once again simplicity, aside from the new look, their purpose was to make it even easier to access all types of features. For instance by using the newly integrated Control Center, which allows you to adjust Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or pause a song within a single swipe. I could tell you a lot more, but that’s what the video is for. And remember to update come fall, even if it’s just to get that annoying red number off your screen.


Your shoe has a soul

Nike’s Reuse-a-Shoe program is about taking your old smelly sneakers and turning them into courts, tracks and athletic fields.  Since they started the program in 1990 they turned 28 million pairs and 36,000 tons of scrap materials into what they like to call Nike Grid and made over 450,000 sporting grounds with this material. Covering about 632 million square feet, which is basically the entire island of Manhattan.

The idea that my old pair of Nike’s,which I most likely became attached to, don’t have to go to waste and actually serve a sporting purpose, appeals a great deal to me and is actually a little reassuring. To show people what they are up to, Nike teamed up with design and motion studio ManvsMachine to create a cool animated video which shows basics of this process.


Twins ! And they sing !

10 Jun


Say Lou Lou is a duo formed by twin sisters, who released a couple of singles including ‘Fool of me’. Which is a very atmospheric electropop song that kind of reminds me of the XX, partly because of the  male guest appearance by the brilliantly named Chet Faker, an Australian electronic musician. Listen I say, this one might stick with you for a while.


Twist and share

5 Jun


Coca-Cola came up with a cool way of sharing a coke, even if you’re not very familiar with the person you’re sharing it with. At first you don’t see any particular changes to the original can, but if you give it a twist you’ll find yourself holding two small cans. So half the sugar, which is still a lot, but also a perfect way to start a conversation, don’t you think?


You stay classy, San Diego . .

In anticipation of the upcoming sequel, Anchorman: The Legend Continues, we are teased by another short trailer. However, brief as it may be, I do get the feeling we’re in for quite the idiotic adventure of Ron Burgundy and his team. Expectations are rising as it becomes clear that several famous extra’s will be making an appearance, such as Harrison Ford and Kanye West. Hold your breath though, the movie won’t come out till December of this year.
