Remember Cheeseburger Friday? So Friday has rolled around and yeah we feel like a cheeseburger…
Normally we’re all carnivore but we saw this black bean (veggie) burger and damn it looks good.
The week is over, let’s have burgers & beer.
Iconic time brand ‘Nooka’ take a break from making awesome watches to make these recycled flower pots. Made out of old coffee grounds and resin…
Nice idea. Wonder how difficult that is to make? *Ponders*

When your favourite brands push it that little bit too far. You know the feeling? We’re big Monocle fans, we buy the magazine regularly and have fond memories of picking up their very first issue. Now this iconic magazine have ventured out into other ‘stuff’; tote bags, stationary etc
The notion of venturing away from your core product offering is always a bit risky but up until now we think they’ve done it well.
We don’t have a really fine sounding argument for this next point but when we saw they were now selling sleeping eye masks for 60 Euros we were just plain irritated. It’s just so pretentious and irrelevant. We also sleep on the plane but our eye-thingie doesn’t cost R600!
This isn’t a point against luxury, it’s merely about brands, brand extension & relevancy.
It just feels like the brand is ‘taking the piss’ and laughing all the way their Swiss bank.
Rant over. We’ll still read the magazine but this has changed our perceptions of Tyler and his pretentious toffee crew.
Hell maybe we’ve misunderstood them the whole time?
One week left (4 days to be exact) to check out Katrin Coetzer’s exhibition at Salon 91 titled ‘Honeymoon’.
If we were in CT this week we would be there, but we’re not… so you should.
Ends on the 18th May for arts sake!
Have a look at some more of her work over here: http://www.katrin.co.za
Ben Sherman have a little photographic exhibition happening at local cool kids hang out: Wolves. 50 years of British Style Culture (that’s what the exhibition is called), plus a cold Weiss and you have yourself a great afternoon.
It ends on the 6th June… so you have some time.
If you didn’t know The National have a new album coming out (20th May to be exact). The band have been releasing singles, videos etc and here is the official video for ‘Sea of Love’ : http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=yIWmRbHDhGw
We’ve heard really good things about Daleahs in Braamfontein, unfortunately we haven’t got around to visiting.
Emma Jane’s review got us thinking that we might need to pay them a visit this weekend.
Love that stuff is happening in our awesome city.
They’re the green building opposite Post.
See you there… soon
We’re trying. How about you?
Happy Wednesday people. Half way there.
We were in London last week and payed @workshopcoffee a visit. Great coffee, great green wall (in the Clerkenwell shop), great roastery, a great logo and great people… what’s not to love?
Nothing. That was a rhetorical question stupid.
This sexy skateboard is just too damn pretty not to share. Not that we would ever skate it, but it would look great up in the office.
You gotta love skate art.
