the first things i like right now of 2011! yep, still continuing the series as it is rad. i’ll be introducing the participants with a little bit of background info from now on. chris is a cool guy i know from twitter, one of the many capetonians / south africans i talk to on a regular basis but have never met in real life. we share an appreciation for wes anderson, jason schwartzman & zach galifianakis. come to think of it, why hasn’t galifianakis been in a wes anderson film yet?
you know those rich people who live in one part of the world for 6 months and then scoot over to another hemisphere so they can sweat and simmer in summer all year round? yeah. i’m the opposite of those people. i would take my billions and travel to where it’s always autumny and cool – all the time.
1. reliving hip hop from days gone by – de la soul (pictured), the fugees, lauryn hill, a tribe called quest, notorious b.i.g, beastie boys, jungle brothers, dead prez … will smith and dj jazzy jeff (!) hell, even black eyed peas before fergie & elephunk. the stuff i jammed to in high school / uni. i have to admit i am not a hip hop aficionado, something that perhaps should be remedied.
so it’s the eve of a new year, which means a run down of the past 12 months is appropriate. i cannot believe how much this little blog has grown in that time – all thanks to you guys with your wonderful comments, link love, retweets and the like. miss moss even appeared in a real life printed magazine, like some kind of grown up.
dear twitter, thanks for introducing me to matt who describes himself as a ‘builder, designer and tinkerer’ (i like that.) his blog wood & faulk is where he records his projects involving building, designing and tinkering. he also has a shop that’s stocked with all sorts of nice stuff. check out this cork wrapped french porteur handlebar he put together for his bike…
hmmm, my no internet for the rest of 2010 embargo has been shamelessly broken. oh well! to tell you the truth i didn’t expect i’d make it more than a few days without a bit of surfing (i managed 3 and a bit…)
