Perth Street Lookbook

April 18, 2010

This is the first of many evidences of me being a creepy person on the street. On the way to the Huge Vintage Sale in North Perth, I realised I’m gonna stalk more people on the street, take a photo of them and put them up here for all people to see. It’s to show people that Perth style isn’t as derro/bogan as people think. For the non-Australian readers, what I’m trying to say is that despite Perth being a small city in a massive state, we still got style!

So enjoy the small amount of photos for now, but I hope it will build up quickly.

Reunion Blues

February 23, 2009

14

Reunion Blues is launching a new web site to help touring bands find recommended places to eat, hang out and crash for the night while out on the road. It’s also a way for musicians to find venues to perform.

It’s called the Touring Bands’ Guide- a digital handbook to help independent bands plan and book their tour! The biggest feature of the site is that it helps bands to book their own independent tour. The site showcases club names and booking personnel’s contact info for 27 of the largest US cities- and it continues to grow.

The TourGuide is designed to promote musicians and artists and it couldn’t be easier! When a band submits a venue or hangout, the TourGuide attributes their entry with their band name, sound clips, photo and url. They also are placed on the homepage of the TourGuide, which is highly visible. It offers a free link to the band’s sound clips, photos and web sites which helps generate exposure for their music!

Best of all, the information is submitted by touring musicians, for touring musicians!

Design By Humans (DBH) isn’t just any normal online store that sells t-shirts- it’s much more than that. It’s a website which hosts an ongoing competition so that artists and designers can submit their t-shirt designs. Then the DBH community vote on which is the best design!

Not only that, t-shirt lovers who love unique and artistic designs can buy these t-shirts whose designs have won the competition. It’s a cool community for artists and t-shirt enthusiasts to talk about anything and everything related to art and design. If you join the community then you can discuss stuff, and submit your own work and vote on other people’s designs.

You can see some of the designs available from in my previous post (Inspiredology) and I’ve put up some more – but there is so so many more designs on the website and so easy to buy from the online store. There’s even free shipping if you spend over $70- And yes the t-shirts are available for both Men AND Women!

If you’re a person who loves to design stuff but never got around to starting production- I highly recommend you take a look at this. There’s so much you can learn!

HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY

February 14, 2009

12

Well it’s Valentines Day which also means that it has been ONE WHOLE ENTIRE YEAR since I’ve started this blog! And what’s even more amazing is that one year ago I fell in love with Crystal Castles, The Rapture, Calvin Harris and more amazingly talented musicians and in this year I’ve seen so many of them live- Cystal Castles two days ago and I must say the atmosphere these two create with their music is amazingly intense I just love them even more!

I gotta say thanks to everyone who regularly reads this blog- I honestly did not expect this many people to be interested at all. And to be patient enough as I sometimes took breaks for Uni and assignments *EW* haha. This tiny blog started out with about 20 people reading it a day and now 150 people minimum read it and even more recently over 200 people have been reading it per day. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve to update the look of this blog so I hope you guys will continue to enjoy!

Random Product of the Week

September 8, 2008

This random product REALLY is random!

It’s a really interesting concept that apparently really works and is available for purchase.

The candy that provides you with a sensational new way to see.

This delicious new confectionary uses cutting edge Sensory Substitution Technology to transmit vivid emotive images into your mind’s eye.

Available in six unique flavours, each helping you achieve the right state of mind by projecting specially created evocative imagery into your field of vision.

Eye Candy is the natural way to become the person you want to be.

Each of your senses (touch, smell, sight, taste, hearing) sends information to the brain at a different frequency. The brain determines where the sensorial information it receives comes from by the frequency at which it resonates, it can then process it in the appropriate way (e.g. turn sight information from the eyes into pictures in the mind).

An array of resonators positioned on the surface of an Eye Candy transmit information from the tongue to the brain at the frequency that the eyes usually send visual information to the brain. A pleasant sensation of soda bubbles can be felt on the tongue as the mind decodes this sensorial information as vivid pictures. This process is called sensory substitution and can be used to supplement peoples senses, enabling them to see the evocative images contained within Eye Candy.

It seems hard to believe that such thing actually exists doesn’t it? It is difficult to get your head around the idea- but there’s a link to Wikipedia (thank god for wiki) about sensory substitution technology. So if you wanna know the gritty details, just click on the link.

Now as mentioned, there are 6 available candies (mindsets) that you could try:


RELAX. Tranquil fish swimming through the streams of your consiousness will help you to unwind.

SOCIALISE. The shooting stars will encourage sociability.

ASSERT. A big thumbs is guaranteed to reassure and motivate you.

MEDITATE. The the slowly shrinking circle helps you to meditate.

OVERCOME. Images of spiders will enable you to overcome your fears.

FOCUS. Direction giving arrows help to improve focus and attention.

For more information or to order online just check out the site. If anyone has tried it let me know how it goes!
